cynthiah@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE, CONN. — In life, it’s often those of us who most need instruction who are least likely to seek it. Salisbury Bank and Trust is hosting a series of seminars on finance for women this month. But this topic is so intimidating to so many women that there is a chance that those who would benefit from it the most won’t sign up.
The seminar will be led by three women: Diane Johnstone and Meredith Tiedemann from the bank and Kimberly Welch, a financial consultant for AXA Advisors.
Welch often works with women to help manage their money.

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE — Both state Sen. Andrew Roraback (R-30) and state Rep. Roberta Willis (D-64) think the main business of the new legislative session is the state’s finances.
They have different ideas of what the problems are and what direction to take, though.
The 2012 legislative session began Feb. 8. It is a “short” session that is supposed to be dedicated to budget issues, but (as is usually the case in the even-numbered short years) numerous bills are being proposed as well.
