Betty White Belongs In La Mesa!

Greetings fellow readers!

My name is Lucy. I am a mild mannered resident of La Mesa and have been for the last five years. Coming from Queens, NY (streets of grime and crime) I found that moving cross country to a town like Mayberr----der I mean La Mesa was quite the culture shock.

We all know La Mesa is one of the best places to live (if you don't believe me, ask anyone who lives here)

Why are you rambling?

Good question.

One day I was talking to friends about comedy legend, Betty White. Why?. Why not?

The story gets better. We were also talking about how much she would love it here. Everyone knows that Betty White is an animal lover and what better place for her to be but in La Mesa? Our cute little town plus Betty White equals- I WANT!

With the help and encouragement of a lot of people, I decided to create a facebook page asking Betty White to come and visit us. My little fantasy?- Betty White as the Grand Marshall of "Christmas in the Village" (even if there is no such title, one should be created)

Yeah I know some guy created a facebook to get NBC to get Betty White to host SNL, I figured I would at least try. Even if we don't get her to come down here, how awesome would it be if everyone in our community agreed on this. I spoke to local merchants and citizens alike and they all say to me: "LUCY! YOU HAVE TO GET US BETTY WHITE!"

Gallup Poll on Top Financial Problems of Americans

Source: Gallup

Personal finances are a major concern of average Americans, according to the latest Gallup poll, but the results show that Americans are most concerned about healthcare costs, low wages, and a lack of jobs when it comes to worries about their finances. There was a reduction in the number of Americans saying the cost of homeownership was their biggest financial worry.

Making sense of the story:

- In 2012, a full 12 percent of Americans put the cost of homeownership and renting at the top of their financial worry. Now it’s down to six percent.

- Below the $30,000/ year income bracket, housing was the most important worry for 9 percent of the respondents. That lowers to four percent in the $30,000 to $75,000 range.

- For those making more than $75,000, six percent of respondents said housing was their top financial concern.

-For comparison, healthcare costs and low wages were cited by 14 percent of Americans as the most important financial issue.

 -Fewer Americans than a year ago cited the high cost of living or unemployment, and the percentage naming oil or gas prices was down from 2012.

-The percentage of Americans who didn't mention any financial problem was up five percentage points from last year, to 17 percent. This sizable uptick suggests that the economic recovery may be reducing the financial problems that families face.  

-Lower-income Americans named "lack of money/cash flow" and "not enough money to pay debts" as their top most important money woes. The stock market or investments, interest rates, retirement savings, and controlling spending did not rank among lower-income Americans' top financial problems.
