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.
President Barack Obama is holding a final day of meetings with global leaders at the Group of 20 Summit in St. Petersburg, Russia. Before leaving for Washington tonight, Mr. Obama will hold a news conference, then meet with Russian civil society leaders. Among those invited to meet with the president are Russian gay rights leaders. Mr. Obama has been critical of a new Russian law banning homosexual propaganda. Russian lawmakers say the measure doesn't outlaw homosexuality but merely discourages discussion of it among people younger than 18. And even at the G-20 summit Mr. Obama has been working the phones, trying to gather up support in Congress for taking military action against Syria for the regime's alleged chemical attack on civilians. With Tony is CBS News' Pam Coulter traveling with the President in St. Petersburg.
This week in the Louisville Metro Police. Tony sits down with LMPD Spokesman Dwight Mitchell in this week's chat.
Signs of improvement in the U.S. economy have emerged this week, and the jobs report the government will issue Friday will show whether that strength is fueling consistent hiring gains. Analysts predict a solid gain of 177,000 jobs for August, just below this year's monthly average of 192,000. The unemployment rate is expected to remain at 7.4 percent. Many economists were encouraged by data released this week. Reports showed that services companies are stepping up hiring and that a dwindling number of people are losing jobs. Americans are buying more cars than at any time since the recession began in December 2007. And U.S. factories expanded in August at their fastest pace in more than two years. With Tony is CBS News Senior Business Analyst Jill Schlesinger in New York.
