Hermann Celebrates Final Weekend Of Oktoberfest

The city of Hermann is in its final weekend of the month-long Oktoberfest celebration. Oktoberfest runs the first four weekends of October, and features activities and events at many Hermann area businesses.
Going into the final weekend, Hermann Tourism Director Jim Grebing told KLPW the month had been amazing. "Last weekend we had over 30,000 people here just on Saturday. The week before that we had around 20,000," Grebing said.

New 401(k) disclosure rules will improve retirement plans

The federal Labor Department published regulations this week that will force employers to disclose all 401(k) fees, along with performance information in a standardized format. Beginning in 2012, each quarterly statement will say, in dollars and cents, how much you've paid in investment management fees, administrative costs and other expenses.
The disclosure undoubtedly will shock some workers.
"People are going to say, 'We didn't know there were any fees,'" says Sean Duggan, a 401(k) consultant at Moneta Group in Clayton.
"Some of them will be angry," adds Robert Higgins, a senior consultant with Benefit Plans Plus in Creve Coeur.
Anger can be healthy, though. In the current system, workers — and even many employers — have no idea what they're paying. A separate set of regulations, announced earlier this year, will arm employers with better information.

"Essentially, subscribers are paying for the cost of receiving Fox programming when they are not, and Dish Network is being unjustly enriched by engaging in this unfair practice," he said Thursday in a statement..
