Midview students place in songwriting competition

Midview students outside the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland after premiering original songs they had written for a competition.
The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage in Beachwood sponsored a songwriting contest entitled “Stop the Hate: Youth Sing Out.” Two groups of students
from Midview High School created original songs for the competition. The students were mentored by professional songwriter Brent Kirby. Twenty-five
songs, from school groups across Northeast Ohio, were entered into the competition. Midview’s songwriting class tied for first place with their song “New
America.” The prize for winning was a grant award of $3,750. The award will be used for future educational experiences for the class. Also submitting a
song in the competition were the two current event seminar classes at Midview. Both songs were premiered at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The song-
writing students will perform “New America” at the Cleveland Museum of Art in March as part of the Maltz Museum’s Gala event. The songwriting class
is taught by Justin Caithaml; the current event classes are taught by William Lawton and Cassie Lundgard.

Manager for additional information. Michelle Moran donated Nonetheless, the U.S. economy is showing enough strength that a recession does not appear
to be on the horizon, which is also likely to be the case globally – and that should be good
news, because an extended “bear” market typically does need to be fueled by a recession.
Ultimately, the projected continued growth of the U.S. economy and the possible resolution of
some uncertainties could help markets rebound.
As investors, we cannot control the everyday ups and downs in the markets, but we can
control our decisions, look for opportunities and keep a long-term perspective within our
investment portfolios. Consider these actions for 2019:
Be prepared for volatility. As mentioned, many of the same factors that led to the market
upheavals of 2018 are still with us, along with the impact of the partial government shutdown
– so don’t be surprised to see continued volatility. The more you’re prepared for market
turbulence, the less startled you’ll be when it arrives.
Stay diversified. At any given time, different financial assets may move in different
directions: stocks up, bonds down, or vice versa. To help dilute risk and take advantage of
different opportunities, you should maintain a broadly diversified portfolio containing stocks,
international stocks, bonds, government securities and so on. You may need to rebalance your
portfolio to maintain an appropriate proportion of each asset class, based on your risk tolerance
and long-term goals. Keep in mind, though, that while diversification can reduce the effects of
volatility on your portfolio, it can’t guarantee profits or protect against all losses.
Take a long-term perspective. It can be disconcerting to see several-hundred point drops in
the stock market. But you can look past short-term events, especially if your most important
financial target – a comfortable retirement – is still years or decades away. By keeping your
focus on the long term, you can make investment decisions based on your objectives – not your
If 2019 continues to be volatile, you'll need to stay prepared and make the right moves – so
you can be confident that you did everything you could to keep moving toward your financial

National Boy Scout Week Feb. 3-9

“On my honor, I will do my best, to do my duty, to God and my country, and to obey the Scout Law, to help
other people at all times, to keep myself physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.”

The Boy Scouts of America is one of the nation’s largest and most prominent values-based youth

development organizations. The BSA provides a program for young people that builds character,
trains them in the responsibilities of participating citizenship, and develops

personal fitness.

For over a century, the BSA has helped build the future leaders of this

country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun.
The Boy Scouts of America believes — and, through over a century of
experience, knows — that helping youth is a key to building a more

conscientious, responsible, and productive society.

We are proud of our Scouts and congratulate them on more than 100 years of service
