74 year old plans 100th summit hike to the top of Mt. San Jacinto By Alison Elsner Don’t even think about making excuses with hiker Richard “Rick” Dryer when it comes to physical activity. This spright 74-year old is preparing for his 100th summit hike to the top of Mt. San Jacinto on June 16, climbing 10,834 feet as he leads 30 other hikers. For Dryer, it all started in 1983, when he made his first of numerous crests to the Mt. San Jacinto peak. The significance? This date commemorated one century

since naturalist and wilderness preservationist John Muir summited Mt. San Jacinto, known to these hikers as “San J.” So far, Dryer has completed 84 summits from Idyllwild’s Humber Park and Deer Springs Trailheads, one from the base of the Mountain behind the Palm Springs Art Museum (24 miles), and the remaining 14 hikes from the Palm Springs Aerial Tram, entering at the Mountain Station for a 12.5-mile round trip. One more makes 100. Dryer taught school for 35 years

and was also an active marathon runner and tennis player. He calculates that over the years, he has hiked 1,600 miles with an elevation gain of 85.899 vertical miles. Dryer said, “I count every day as lost that I did not do something physically demanding.” This 100th hike will also serve as a fundraiser for future educators at San Diego State University. Dreyer’s friend Bill Burke – the oldest American to summit Mt. Everest – will accompany Dryer on the 100th summit along with

Barbara “Bobbie” Wright (marking her 50th San Jacinto hike), to whom Dryer will pass the summit torch. Dryer inspires his fellow hikers with one of his favorite quotes by Sir Winston Churchill, “Continuous effort, not strength or intelligence, is the key to unlocking your potential.” Talk about lofty goals and high standards. For more information on the hike or fundraiser, please contact Rick Dryer at or 760-845-7799.

Social Security Matters

“Ask Rusty” - SSA misinformation leads to lost benefits Dear Rusty: I am 64, a widow and I’m hopping mad! I lost my husband a while ago and went to Social Security to apply for widow’s benefits. That all went okay and I’m getting my benefit, but I just found out that I could have avoided a cut to my widow’s benefit and maybe applied only for my own retirement benefit and let the widow’s benefit grow until I reached 66 when it wouldn’t be cut. To make matters worse, they never explained that I’d be applying for both my own Social Security and my widow’s benefit, so my Social Security payment now is made up of both and they’re both reduced because I took them early. If I had waited until I was 70 to take my own benefit, it would have been more than my widow’s benefit. I feel that because they never told me my options, especially when I was grieving the loss of my husband, that it’s their fault that I’m losing money. What can I do? Signed: Hopping Mad Dear Hopping Mad: It looks as though you were caught in the same miscommunication web that Social Security’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) recently investigated and found that Social Security Administration (SSA) staff

had often misinformed or failed to explain all available options to those applying for survivor’s benefits. That, in turn, has been responsible for a lot of “dually-entitled” people getting less than they’re truly entitled to. Thanks to a savvy SSA whistleblower, the OIG investigated the allegations and found that those who were entitled to both Social Security retirement benefits and survivor’s benefits were often not told that they could apply for either benefit and allow the other to grow to its maximum amount. In your case, you could have simply waited to apply for your widow’s benefit until it reached maximum at your full retirement age (FRA); or, if you needed the money, applied for your own reduced retirement benefit first and allowed your survivor’s benefit to grow to its maximum at your FRA and get that for the rest of your life; or you could have taken the reduced survivor’s benefit only and allowed your own retirement benefit to grow until it reached its maximum at age 70. That you are now receiving reduced benefits with no option to delay either one is, it would seem, a result of a failure by the SSA to inform you of your options, exactly as the OIG found in its investigation.

I believe you have a strong case to challenge the SSA on your application choice due to them not informing you of the alternatives available to you. You can initiate this challenge by writing them a letter explaining that you would have made a different choice had you been told the alternatives available to you and request a hearing to resolve this issue. You will need to be specific about the who/ when/where aspects of your original application, and you should be very clear about which other option you would have selected had you known – to either defer your widow’s benefit until it grew to maximum at your FRA, or to take your widow’s benefit and defer your Social Security retirement benefit until you are 70. In any case, you should not have to suffer the financial consequences of the SSA’s failure to let you know that you had alternatives as a survivor. For more on how to file a claim in writing due to the SSA’s failure to advise you of your options, go to: OP_Home/cfr20/416/416-0351.htm and review Section (f) Claim for benefits based on misinformation.

How Does Your Hospital Stack Up? Just because your local hospital received a good rating in the past doesn’t mean the rating has stayed the same. Things change, for good and for bad. If you’re about to have surgery or need to pick out a new medical facility, check online sites to see what the latest scores are for hospitals near you. Leapfrog Group is one of the organizations that collects data and reports hospital performance through its Hospital Safety Grade. Go online to and look for Compare Hospitals. Put in your city and state and search within 10 to 200 miles from you. The ratings are updated twice a year to reflect changes in the level of care. Look for information under inpatient care, medication safety, injections, injuries and more. If, for example, your hospital has been dinged two years in a row for post-surgical infection rates, there’s a problem there that hasn’t gone away. If your hospital scores low in using bar codes to dispense medication (scanning the patient wrist band before giving medication), you’ll know that’s something to keep an eye on, especially

if you’re asleep and unaware of being given medication. If your hospital has a zero rate of post-surgical infections, that’s something else you need to know. Be sure to click the blue icon to read more about the rating for each item. In some cases a low number of bars is good, in others it indicates a problem. What about your doctor, especially if you’re about to see a new one? First ask people you know for recommendations or comments. Then go online to HealthGrades ( to get information. Scroll down to read comments written by other patients. Keep in mind, however, that as with everything else online, you really don’t know who has written those reviews.

Strange But True By Samantha Weaver

• It was noted wit Ambrose Bierce who made the following sage observation: “All are lunatics, but he who can analyze his delusion is called a philosopher.” • You might be surprised to learn that in January 2004, the Food and Drug Administration approved the use of maggots as a medical device for cleaning wounds. • Presidential security was not always as formidable as it is today. In 1913, former President Theodore Roosevelt was walking down a Milwaukee street, heading to a speech he was scheduled to give. A man named John Schrank pulled out a gun and shot toward Roosevelt, who staggered but did not fall. There was no blood evident, and Roosevelt, who was campaigning for a second term, insisted on delivering his speech. When he pulled from a coat pocket the 100 pages on which his speech was written, he saw a bullet hole through the sheets of paper. Still determined to carry on, he gave

his speech before going to the hospital, where it was discovered that the bullet had penetrated four inches into his body. After the perpetrator was arrested, it became evident that Schrank was insane; he claimed that President William McKinley had revealed to him in a dream that Roosevelt was responsible for McKinley’s assassination. Schrank spent the next 32 years in an insane asylum. • If you see a group of flamingoes together in one place, it might be handy to know that the appropriate collective noun is a “flamboyance.” • The instruments used by professional flute players are usually made from precious metals — either sterling silver, 14-carat gold or platinum. Thought for the Day: “It is an ironic habit of human beings to run faster when we have lost our way.” — Rollo May (c) 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.

Recipe of the Week

Kitchen Diva By Angela Shelf Medearis

SALAD FOR SUPPER A bowl filled with a cold salad with flavorful ingredients are a “hot” menu item this year! There are several ways to incorporate the numerous varieties of spring vegetables, superfoods, grains and cheeses into a “super” salad by using simple preparation methods. Here are a few tips to make a salad that will appeal to even the pickiest eater: Make it colorful! Skip the iceberg and opt for spinach, kale or another dark leafy green. Dark leafy greens supply a tremendous amount of nutrients, including vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin K, iron, calcium and fiber. Add color with some carrots, red bell peppers, tomatoes, blanched asparagus, beets or any other vegetable, and you get additional nutrients critical for maintaining eyesight, bone health and digestive health. Salad isn’t just for vegetables anymore! Try adding in cooked grains such as brown rice, quinoa and barley to add nutritious texture, and fruits like apples, citrus segments, grapes, strawberries or blueberries to your plate of colorful vegetables. Like many vegetables, fruits contain antioxidants that can help protect against certain forms of cancer and reduce levels of LDL, or bad cholesterol. Try to limit or avoid dried fruits, such as dried cranberries or blueberries. These often have added sugars that can up the calorie content of your salad. Add a healthy crunch! A few toasted walnuts or almonds, spicy baked garbanzo beans and pickled vegetables are a great addition to any salad. Add some protein! Protein takes longer to digest, so it keeps us full longer. Protein also is need-

ed for healthy muscles. Eggs, lean meat, beans and cheese (in limited quantities) are easy ways to add protein. Find a healthier dressing that works for you! There now are quite a variety of light dressings and vinaigrettes to choose from. Vinegar-based dressings typically have less fat and calories than creamy dressings. Oil and vinegar is a healthy choice in limited amounts -- the healthy fat from the oil helps your body to absorb some of the vitamins from the salad. Creating a healthy salad can be a simple way to satisfy recommendations for fruit and vegetable intake. It’s also a wonderful way to use leftover cooked meats, vegetables and grains. Don’t be afraid to use your grocery deli section selections for sliced vegetables and roasted deli meats to make a delicious meal in record time. SPRING SALAD BOWL For the Salad Dressing: • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice • 2 tablespoons unseasoned rice vinegar or sherry vinegar • 1 teaspoon sugar, stevia, agave or honey • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard • 1 teaspoon salt • 1 teaspoon black pepper • 1 teaspoon garlic powder • 1/2 cup olive oil

Using a small bowl, whisk together the lemon juice, vinegar, sugar, mustard, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Drizzle in the olive oil while whisking until the mixture is well-combined. Dressing will keep up to three days in a jar or container with a tight-fitting lid. Whisk together or shake the dressing to re-combine the ingredients. Makes about 1/3 cup.

For the Salad Bowl: • 9 cups mixed tender greens (such as mizuna, tatsoi, arugula, dandelion greens and/or sorrel) • 3 cups Romaine hearts, or kale leaves cut into bite-size pieces • 2 apples (Gala, Fuji or other sweet, crisp apples) or 2 pears (Green Anjou or Bartlett) sliced thinly or chopped into bite-sized pieces, 1 large orange, peeled and segmented, or 3/4 cup of berries • 1/2 cup cooked brown rice, quinoa, barley or any other whole, cooked grain • 6 ounces deli sliced roast turkey, roast chicken breast or roast beef, cut into bite-size pieces, or cooked leftover poultry or beef cut into bite-size pieces • 1 large Haas avocado, peeled, seeded and cut into bite-size chunks • 1/2 cup slivered almonds or walnut halves, toasted 1. Using a large bowl, add the mixed greens, Romaine or kale.

Pour 3/4 of the salad dressing over the greens and toss together to coat the leaves, about 1 minute. 2. Add the fruit and grains, meat and the remaining salad dressing; toss together until combined. Sprinkle the avocado and nuts on the top of the salad. Serves 6. TIP: This salad can be separated into containers to pack for lunch or a quick to-go meal.

Now Here’s a Tip By JoAnn Derson

• “Here’s an awesome way to clean silver. Take an aluminum foil pan — the disposable kind — and line it with a piece of aluminum foil; sprinkle in some salt — I use sea salt, but any kind will do — then add an equal amount of baking soda, and fill the container with boiling water. Put your silver, including jewelry, into the mix — it cleans instantly! Of course, you’ll have to turn the larger pieces, so be careful not to burn yourself.” — L.N. in B.C., Canada • “With summer storms and hurricane season right around the corner, power outages are a very real possibility. Whenever I have any extra room in my freezer, I fill some containers with water and freeze them. If the power were to go out, it’ll keep my frozen foods good longer, or become water to drink if needed. And it’s no waste, since if I need the room, I can just take one out.”— W.J. in Texas • Do you remember the last time you went on vacation and came home the night before returning

to work or school, and the house was trashed and there was no food or anything? Do yourself a favor here: Clean house before you leave; schedule a grocery delivery of essentials for your return, if possible; and schedule a recovery day at home before returning to work. • Bread can be frozen and reheated in the oven after a quick spritz of water. Sliced bread can be defrosted on the counter as needed. There’s really no excuse to have bread go bad. • For furniture items that require their own small tool to tighten screws (think, IKEA furniture, etc.), this tip is genius: Tape the tool to the underside of the furniture, or in an inconspicuous place. It will be handy for quick tightenups and ready when you need to take it apart to move it. Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, 628 Virginia Drive, Orlando, FL 32803.

‘Cat Cuddler Needed’ If you are a cat lover, you are going to love this job opportunity, says the Association of Mature American Citizens: a Dublin clinic calling itself Just Cats has posted an opening for a resident “cat cuddler” on its Web site. “The ideal candidate must have gentle hands capable of petting

and stroking cats for long periods of time,” according to the ad. He or she must also have “cattitude,” the posting notes. The Association of Mature American Citizens provides the Filler Files as a service on issues of concern to Americans over 50.

SALOME’S STARS WEEK OF MAY 21, 2018 BORN THIS WEEK: You keep an open mind on most matters, making you the confidante of choice for people who need your honest counsel.

ARIES (MARCH 21 TO APRIL 19) Although you might prefer moving forward at a steady pace, it might be a good idea to stop and reassess your plans. You could find a good reason to make a change at this time. TAURUS (APRIL 20 TO MAY 20) Just when you thought you had everything planned to the smallest detail, you get some news that could unsettle things. But a timely explanation helps put it all back on track. GEMINI (MAY 21 TO JUNE 20) Home and work continue to compete for your attention. But you handle it well by giving each its proper due. Someone you trust offers valuable advice. Listen to it. CANCER (JUNE 21 TO JULY 22) Unsettling news creates a difficult but not impossible situation. Continue to follow your planned routine, but keep your mind open to a possible change down the line. LEO (JULY 23 TO AUGUST 22) Lick your wounded pride if you like, but it's a better idea to find out why your suggestions were rejected. What you learn could help you deal with an upcoming situation.
