With harsh cold and snow forecast for much of the state in the next few days, officials in Ohio’s Department of Aging are urging precautions for older people who could be at increased risk of weather-related problems.
Gold Prices Spike; Temporary Gain For Coin Dealer
An ounce of gold hit the $600 mark at the end of last week. And Monday it finished at $597.60 on the New York Commodities Exchange. Tom Squires is the coin department manager at Allen’s in Westerville. Squires said the spike in gold prices is effecting his current inventory in a positive way.
“In a sense it’s given a slightly inflated value to what we have that we didn’t sell yet. But it’s a very short lived bonus,” Squires said.
Squires said that’s because the price of gold could drop – or he says it could level out at around $600 an ounce. Currently in London an ounce of gold started out at $602.25. That’s up more than nine dollars from late Monday.
