Daniel YoNash comes to Wellington as new financial advisor for Edward Jones’ downtown office

first_imgby Amber Schmitz, Sumner Newscow — Having been born in the old Wellington Hospital, and living in the area all of his life, has brought Daniel YoNash back to Wellington as the new financial advisor for Edward Jones. His first day in the local office was April 11.Former advisor Diana Page, who had been with the company for 20 years, died in January.“It’s hard losing an advisor, but I seem to have resonated well with the community,” YoNash said.Since YoNash was born in Wellington and has always lived in the area, the company offered him the advisor position here. After earning his business administration degree from Friends University in Wichita, he obtained a series 7 and series 66, both financial licenses he is required to have.“I spent two months studying, then took the tests,” YoNash said.He grew up in Belle Plaine, and was actually in the same class as his wife, Jamie. His family later moved to Mulvane, where he graduated from high school. Daniel and Jamie started dating when they were in their 20’s, and eventually got married. They now have four children: son, Gabe, who just graduated from Belle Plaine High School, and will pursue a degree in journalism from Cowley County Community College in the fall; daughter, Jaiden, who will be a sophomore at Belle Plaine High School; daughter, Avery, who will be a fifth grader here; and daughter, Emmy, age three. Jamie works as a school nurse in Wichita, and they plan on buying a house and moving to Wellington soon.Edward Jones & Co., L.P. is an investment company which assists clients with wealth management, retirement and college savings, stocks, bonds and mutual funds, insurance and annuities, cash and credit, and also works with business owners. They can also assist clients in planning their estate, resources and financial education, and preparing for the unexpected.YoNash has been with the company for almost five years, starting out in Haysville. From there, he relocated to Winfield and opened a second office. Brad Turgeon has been with the company for nearly five years, two of those with the local office, and works closely with YoNash as the Branch Office Administrator.“As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it’s important to invest my time to understand what you’re working toward before you invest your money,” YoNash stated on his website. “It’s also important to understand the level of risk you’re comfortable accepting when investing so we can balance it with the steps necessary to reach your long-term goals.”He recently joined the Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce, and is interested in joining other groups and clubs, so he can get to know people and join the community.YoNash’s office hours are 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday, and on Saturday by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, call 620-326-5927, or email daniel.yonash@edwardjones.com.

Worker Loses Arm in Freak Accident at Fort Lauderdale Construction Site

first_imgA construction worker had an arm severed when he fell at a Fort Lauderdale job site.The incident happened as an elevator came down Thursday afternoon, rescue officials say.Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue said they responded just before 3 p.m. to the downtown site off NE 7th Street and 4th Ave.When paramedics arrived, they discovered that a 39-year-old man had been working on the 6th floor when he fell to the 5th floor, next to an elevator shaft. The elevator was coming down at the time and severed his arm.Construction workers were able to pull the man safely down to the ground floor, and paramedics brought him to Broward Health to be treated for his injuries.Fire officials say he was alert when transported to the hospital, and was to undergo surgery late Thursday.Alta Developers said the man is an employee of L&R Structural, a subcontractor working at EON II Flagler Village, a multifamily development that is under construction.“Safety is a top priority at every one of our projects,” Juan Carlos Freyre, executive VP of the development company, said in a statement. “We will continue to monitor this situation and his condition. Our thoughts and prayers go out to this individual and his family.”last_img read more

Tigers must make the most of 2017

first_imgThere were plenty of positive signs from one of the competition’s youngest teams last season, and the time is right for the Tigers’ bright stars to step up and take their games to new heights. With the quartet of James Tedesco, Mitch Moses, Luke Brooks and Aaron Woods all off contract at the end of 2017, Seumanufagai said it was imperative for the team to lift next season to avoid any ‘what could have been’ scenarios. “There’s a core centre of boys who have been together for a while now,” he told Tigers TV as part of their Unfiltered series. “Last year we got to see that come into play with everyone talking about all the younger boys growing up and becoming more experienced. “I think it’s getting to that stage now where all of us boys have been together for a while and we know how we play. “We might not be here next year – a lot of boys might move on – so we’ve really got to seize this year, seize this opportunity and give it everything for next year.” Wests Tigers had a chance to make the finals last season but missed out on a spot in the top eight after being thrashed by the Raiders 52-10 at Leichhardt Oval in Round 26.It was a frustrating finish for the Tigers who finished on 26 competition points – just one shy of the eighth-placed Titans – especially given their record in tight matches. Jason Taylor’s men lost three of their four matches that were decided by two points or less, including a one-point defeat in the final minute to the Titans in Round 23 that ultimately cost them a spot in the playoffs. Seumanufagai said the playing group would use that as motivation in 2017 and would not make the same mistakes twice with games in the balance.  “The little games count. There were a few close games that we had throughout the year, and just one of those wins would have taken us there (to the finals),” he said. “I think we just need to win one of those really close games [because] you never know which game will count towards the end. “We’re a better team than last year and we were so close to making it so I’m really excited.”Rather than copy what other teams have been doing, Seumanufagai believes the Tigers’ best hope of returning to the finals is to embrace their own identity and play their own style of football. “You’ve got to find a difference in something other teams aren’t doing and you’ve got to make sure that you’re doing that,” he said. “All the NRL teams are doing the same thing and same plays so we’ve got to make sure we’re doing more or something to add a difference.”Seumanufagai and rookie Josh Aloiai were the only Tigers to play all 24 matches last season, and as he approaches his fifth season in the NRL, the 25-year-old took some time to reflect on his impending 100-game milestone. “It honestly feels like I debuted last year. The older boys when they say ‘time flies’ I guess it really does. I’m still young at heart though,” he laughed. “[I’ve learned] to be honest with yourself as a trainer and as a person, and goal-setting helps as well. “Whenever I’m on – either at the start of the game or the middle of the game – I’ve just got to do my job and I know that the team and everyone else is counting on me so that’s on my shoulders.”last_img read more

Nuquay Donates L$200,000 to UL-SIM

first_imgA member of the Student Integration Movement (SIM) of the University of Liberia (UL), Speaker of the House of Representatives J. Emmanuel Nuquay has made a cash donation of L$200,000 to the organization as financial aid to its scholarship program.The Speaker is a graduate of the UL, where he majored in Accounting, and graduated from the Louis Arthur Grimes School of Law. He was a member of SIM.Speaking on behalf of the Speaker on Tuesday, May 2, in his Capitol Building office, his Chief of Staff (COS) Eric Kennedy said the L$200,000 is to afford students the opportunity to enroll at the UL, and is also one of the many contributions the Speaker has made toward education across the country.“The Speaker is very pleased to contribute to the education of students that SIM is providing scholarships for,” Mr. Kennedy said.He added: “The Speaker believes that education is the most important tool that anyone should receive that can bring one success in society. Education lessens the challenges you will face in life and the more knowledge you gain the more opportunities it will open up to allow individuals to achieve better possibilities in career and personal growth. Education has played an important role in the world in the 21st century. A person with a higher education will be easily qualified compared to a person without an extended education; and one will be prepared to do various tasks that careers demand as well as meet job standards.”He said education is important because it helps one develop a unique perspective on life. “It has played a major role for all individuals in society and also has allowed the community to succeed both socially and economically,” he added.Meanwhile, the chairman of SIM, Henry Darbee Blamah, thanked the Speaker for his contribution and said his donation will “forever be remembered.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_img1 Lukas Podolski is unsure whether he will return to Arsenal when his loan spell with Inter Milan ends.The German forward has spent the second half of the campaign with Inter but has struggled to make an impact, scoring just one goal in 16 appearances.Roberto Mancini last week suggested Podolski is eager to return to Arsenal and see out the remainder of his contract but the 29-year-old has since revealed he is “open” to a permanent move away from the north London club.“I could stay here [in Milan], go back to London or play elsewhere,” he told Sky Sport Italia.“I cannot confirm anything now.
