When Decosimo took brush to palette, he did not create a realistic likeness of Phillips for hanging in a conference room or the lobby of a law firm. Instead, his harsh brush strokes and blending of soft blues, browns and oranges create the faint impression of a female warrior.

Jenkins Perspective: Traffic purgatory – Not as bad as Atlanta, but ...

I, like you, am a commuter. Not that I can complain. I get to miss rush hour – both ways – with my cushy radio schedule (The Clubhouse, noon-2 p.m. weekdays on WAAK, 94.7 FM). But each day I have to head out, my producer riding shotgun, and return home.


Fifth ‘Transformers’ worthy of the scrap heap

What was I thinking? How did the thought of seeing “Transformers: The Last Knight” and coming back to you with encouraging words bubble up in my head?

Don’t let investments take a ‘vacation’

It’s summer again – time for many of us to take a break and possibly hit the open road. But even if you go on vacation, you won’t want your investments to do the same – in summertime or any other season.

How can you help make sure your portfolio continues to work hard for you all year long?
