  • Day 8: Family Media Detox

    youtube= "The Family Media Detox Challenge" By Jim Bennett Things are a little different around the parsonage these days. We are in the midst of a burgeoning cultural renaissance. The Mrs. and I, along with our children, have agreed to give up television, movies, video games, mp3 players and social networking for the month of September. This started when we cancelled our Dish Network subscription in August. It was an unnecessary expense at a time when we’ve been tightening our belts anyway, but frankly, this isn’t merely a financial decision. It’s more like CPR for the mind. How vividly I...

So, you’ve hit a soft spot with me on this question. Still, you have to be an adult about these things, and here are a few rules. First, you should be completely debt free except for your house. Second, you need to have your fully funded emergency fund—that’s three to six months of living expenses—in place. In other words, I want you to have completed the first...

His automotive restoration business went bankrupt, he hasn’t been able to find another job, and he has nowhere else to go. What can we do to help him? John Dear John, You have to define what helping your son really means. In my mind, you haven’t helped him at all if he’s still squatting in your basement five years from now. That’s called being an enabler. But it’s not going to help him,...

    Dave Ramsey will no longer be on the Fox Business Channel. The Dave Ramsey Show which aired at 8PM is being axed. Ramsey’s show is being replaced by Eric Bolling’s new show Money Rocks. Bolling is currently the host of Happy Hour on CNBC and was one of the original traders on CNBC’s Fast Money. It looks like Fox is trying to jumpstart its ratings by agreeing to part ways with the personal finance guru. Ramsey’s show failed to connect with viewers. He had been on Fox Business for the past 2 years.

John Mark Karr, 42, is charged with battery and obstruction of a 911 call, Lt. Keith Zgonc of the Sandy Springs police said. Karr was arrested in Bangkok, Thailand, last year in connection with the 1996 slaying of the 6-year-old beauty queen. JonBenet's beaten and strangled body was found December 26, 1996, in the basement of her parents' home in Boulder, Colorado. Karr was taken to Colorado, but his DNA...

That included nearly $6,000 for business class tickets to fly him and an investigator to California from Bangkok, Thailand, where Karr was arrested. The sheriff's office said it incurred $6,070 in costs, including $3,255 for Karr's flight on a state plane from Los Angeles to Jefferson County Airport in Colorado, sheriff's officials said Friday.

More than 200 people took credit for the kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh's baby son in 1932. Serial killer Henry Lee Lucas claimed he killed hundreds in the 1970s. Lucas was convicted of 11 murders, and police discredited much of what he claimed from his prison cell, where he died in 2001.

    Brother: Karr didn't kill JonBenet By JON SARCHE and CHASE SQUIRES, Associated Press Writers 39 minutes ago BOULDER, Colo. - John Mark Karr's brother insisted Friday that Karr did not kill JonBenet Ramsey. "Absolutely not. Emphatically. Without a doubt," Nate Karr said in a television interview. Karr told ABC's "Good Morning America" he was certain his brother spent Christmas 1996, when JonBenet was slain, with his family. "Well I can say almost without question that from the time that John had children he has never missed a Christmas with his family, and that's any Christmas," said Karr, who appeared on...

    SAN JOSE, Costa Rica - John Mark Karr bragged to his landlord's wife that sexually, he was "like a wolf," and said he "liked little boys and girls" when he worked in Costa Rica as an English teacher, his former housemates told The Associated Press.

Karr traveled around the world in recent years, including brief stays in Honduras and Costa Rica, where he rented a room in 2004 from Canadian John Hall, who now teaches at...

    DNA swiped from John Mark Karr after his arrest last week in connection with the JonBenet Ramsey murder might be irrelevant, in part because "something got screwed up" when samples were taken from the crime scene in 1996, a former investigator on the case said.

    As the case against John Mark Karr disintegrates, attention turns to CU prof Michael Tracey, who's fingered false suspects in the past. While the case against John Mark Karr disintegrates by the minute, New Times has learned that this isn't the first time Colorado University Professor Michael Tracey has caused a stir by fingering a "prime suspect" in the JonBenet Ramsey murder case — only to be proved wrong. In 2004, Tracey, a British expatriate journalism professor and documentarian, produced a film about the Ramsey murder that aired on British television but not in the United States. By then, however,...

    On Wednesday, Quientana Ray, who married Karr when she was 13, told ABC's "Good Morning America" in a pre-recorded interview that Karr was controlling and used to tell her about fantasies he had about little girls.

Her parents, Melissa and Larry Shotts, said they also discovered letters Karr wrote to their daughter that were signed "S.B.T.C." -- the same initials found on a ransom note left in the Ramseys' home. They did not show the...

    John Mark Karr reportedly wrote in a 2005 e-mail to University of Colorado professor Michael Tracey that a check stub on John Ramsey's desk included the figure of $118,000 — the amount included in the mysterious ransom note found at the Ramsey home. If true, the development — reported in recent days by CBS News — could be significant. The check stub and its location, Ramsey's desk, appear to be specific references not commonly discussed in news coverage of the JonBenet Ramsey murder. On the other hand, there has been frequent mention of the $118,000 figure in media stories, mainly...
