Welcome to the "Producer's Corner" where you'll find news and notes from Morning Show Producer Scott Fitzgerald.
You’ve put answering it thinking there’s still plenty of time. Now you’re at the point where you have to find a solution. This is Scott Fitzgerald and what am I talking about? How are we going to pay for Christmas this year.
For those serving on active duty in the military (even you DoD civilian contractors) I may have the solution. A Navy Federal gorewards credit card. With a Navy Federal GoRewards credit card you earn points for travel, gift cards or even merchandise (which means more Christmas presents for this year or even next). But here’s what separates Navy Federal from the others. If you sign on now and spend $1,000 Navy Federal Credit Union will GIVE you 15,000 additional points!
For those serving our military why Navy Federal? Because they’ve been serving the military for 80 years now and have amassed over 4 million members (to include yours truly). Any member of ANY branch is eligible for membership, but you have to join while on active duty.
You can visit navyfederal.org or (for our neighbors near Ft. Knox) you can visit the local branch NEAR Ft. Knox at 137 E. Lincoln Trail Boulevard in Radcliff/
Navy Federal is financially solid and Federally insured by the NCUA.

With the recent report on home prices showing the biggest year-over-year gain in more than six years, one employment authority predicts a surge in relocation by job-seeking homeowners in 2013, which could ultimately help to accelerate the decline in unemployment rates. "One factor that has kept unemployment rates high has been the inability of underwater homeowners to relocate for employment opportunities. With home prices bouncing back, even those who may now simply break even on a home sale might consider moving to a region where jobs are more plentiful. This could spark a more rapid decline in the unemployment rate over the next year," said John A. Challenger, chief executive officer of Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc. As of December, there were still more than 130 metropolitan areas where the unemployment rate stood at 8.0 percent or higher and nearly 50 where the rate was at or above 10 percent, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Meanwhile, there are about 20 metropolitan areas where unemployment is below 4.5 percent. "It is likely that employers in these low-unemployment regions are actually struggling to find available workers with the skills need to fill job openings," said Challenger. Relocation for employment opportunities has been difficult in this recovery due to the collapse in home values. At the end of the third quarter, 22 percent of residential properties remained underwater, according to the latest available data from real estate analytics firm CoreLogic. However, the percentage of underwater homeowners is likely to have declined since that last reading, based on the fact that December not only marked the tenth consecutive month of increased home prices, but it saw the biggest gain since May 2006, according to CoreLogic. What's behind the surge in relocation by job-seeking homeowners in 2013? With Tony is CEO of Challenger Gray and Christmas Consultancy & Productivity Expert John Challenger.
