  • KYNG saving taxpayers $100 million through corrosion awareness

    Riddle me this: What ensures combat readiness, preserves our equipment, protects the environment, and saves taxpayers a whole lotta money?

    Answer: corrosion awareness!

All she has for payment is a cashier’s check for an amount $5,000 more than your asking price. She asks you to deposit the check in the bank, keep $500 for your trouble and give her the remaining $4,500.

  • KEEPING THE FAITH - Time is a precious resource to invest wisely, draw dividends

    What would you do if someone gave you $86,400 and asked you to invest it, you only had that one day to do it, because at the stroke of midnight, it would all disappear?
