The Westmont Village Clerk’s office was recently showered with calls from residents inquiring about increases to their water bills. Last month the office notified residents on the west side of Cass Avenue, and this month they are distributing bills to residents on the east side of the street. “There will be a significant increase, and we don’t want people to be shocked when they get it,” village clerk Virginia Szymski said at a recent village board meeting. Szymski said the office was inundated with calls last month when the first bills

“There will be a significant increase, and we don’t want people to be shocked when they get it, Virginia Szymski, village clerk went out.

The Utility Debate

Village of Downers Grove to make decision on storm water utility By Debbie Lively Staff Reporter

Downers Grove moves closer to making a decision on creating a storm water utility. The village staff recently offered a presentation to the village council on the benefits of switching from funding storm water management through property taxes verses setting up a dedicated funding source through a storm water utility. After David Hyder, a consultant with Municipal & Financial Services Group, provided the results of a storm water utility study, City Manager Dave

Fieldman asked the council to make a decision on the issue. “We’ve been working on this for nine years,” said Fieldman. “This is a policy question on how we should we pay for this. How should we address the gap?” He said the question before the board is whether it wants to continue along the current property-tax based system or create a utility that would help the village accumulate funds to help manage the village’s system. It’s estimated that there’s about a $17 million gap in the funds needed to update the village’s system. John Schofield, a Downers

“I would continue the property tax. This (the utility) is more. In the world when we’re talking about less. This is more. This is another bill. Property tax is business friendly,” Joe Phillips, resident Grove resident, said that he has been inclined to think the utility was a good idea. He said the way that he understood it is in the early years, he would save a few dollars per month; however, then he heard that there’s a recommended 15 percent annual

Village starts planning process for Town Centre area By Debbie Lively Staff Reporter

The village of Woodridge and the Woodridge Park District are now in search of a planning consultant to direct the redevelopment of the village’s Town Centre area. Last week village officials released a request for proposals in an effort to seek planning consultants to guide the project, which will redevelop the village’s municipal area located near Woodridge and Center drives. The village is looking for a consultant who would help develop a proposal for the preparation of a Town Centre Master Plan. The plan will identify community needs and an implementation plan that takes into consideration usage of the land, project phases and financing. It will take into account the area surrounding village hall, the Woodridge Public Library, the Police and Public Works facility, the Park District Community Center, the U.S. Postal Office, Jefferson Junior

“We’re looking for professional consultants that would say what they’re planning to do in the process,” Jack Knight, deputy village clerk High School, Hawthorne Hill Woods Park, Memorial Park, Lake Carleton, Lake Harriet and 44 acres of open space that’s jointly owned by the village and the park district. “We’re looking for professional consultants that would say what they’re planning to do in the process,”Woodridge management analyst and deputy village clerk Jack Knight said. “And we (the village and the park district) will evaluate the process,” he said. The consultants will be responsible for coordinating the public input process, including holding public open houses and steering committee meetings.

Village officials are expected to use the plan as a policy document to provide direction on all aspects of the Town Centre’s physical environment. The plan also will be a guide for future infrastructure and other public investment needs, Knight said. The selected consultant is expected to outline the scope of their plan and their expected fees, which would include meeting cost, conceptual plans and personnel hours for implementing the plan. The RFP can be located on the village’s website at w w w. v i l . w o o d r i d g e . i l . u s / RFPTownCentre.aspx. The village and park district are also expected to post updated information about the planning process on their websites. Those interested in submitting a proposal should contact Jenny Walden, senior planner, at jwalden@vil.woodridge.il.us. Knight said the village has a goal of adopting a plan for the area by January 2013. dlively@buglenewspapers.com

increase for ten years. “This sounds like a big number to me,” he told the village. Fieldman said village residents are looking at an increase in either the property tax or with the storm water utility. The only difference is that the storm water

is not a tax-deductible item. Joe Phillips, also a Downers Grove resident and former utility consultant said he’s opposed to the utility. “I would continue the property tax. This (the utility) is more. In the world when we’re talking about less. This is more. This is another bill. Property tax is business friendly,” he added. “Why would the village want to lose federal and state funding?” The council is expected to make a decision on the utility at its April 10 meeting, just before the village begins work on its Long Range Financial Plan. dlively@buglenewspapers.com

THE BUGLE MARCH 21, 2012

Alert Center provides North High warnings for potential School to host screening tornadoes Tornadoes are trending more violent and more frequent. This statement is supported by several records that have been set in the first eleven years of the 21st century. These records include: greatest swarm of tornadoes (187 tornadoes April 27 & 28, 2011); largest recorded tornado (2 ½ miles wide May 22, 2004 in Nebraska); most number of verified tornadoes in a month (543 in May of 2003); costliest tornado in history (JoplinMay 22, 2011 estimated 2.8 billion in damages). Reports (http://www.cbsnews. com/stories/2011/09/20/ national/main20109164.shtml) from the Joplin and the Alabama tragedies last year found that

victims were slow to react or didn’t react at all when the tornado sirens were activated in these local areas. Did you know that 40% of fatalities from tornadoes happen at night while people are sleeping? Last year, there were 59 killer tornadoes and 56 of those have occurred while under a tornado warning/ watch. 95% accuracy tells us that the technology is getting very good in detecting tornadoes, so with better and timely notifications, lives can be saved. National Tornado Alert Center (www.nationaltornadoalertcenter. com) provides real time telephone alerts 24 hours/ day seven days a week to residents in the affected

counties in the United States. These alerts can be delivered in multiple languages within minutes of when a tornado warning or watch has been issued by a local National Weather Service office. These alerts can be delivered via an automated message for as little as $1/ month. For $12 per year, which is the equivalent to two fast food lunches, subscribers can have peace of mind or a great “backup” to the tornado sirens ensuring that appropriate and necessary safety precautions are being taken to protect families from severe storms. 10% of all subscription revenues will be donated back to tornado victims to help rebuild their homes and their lives.

North High School in Downers Grove will host a showing of the 90-minute documentary “Miss Representation” at 7 p.m. Wednesday. The film will be shown in the school’s auditorium, 4436 Main St. The community event is free of charge, and is appropriate for ages 13 and older. The documentary encourages students and adults alike to consider the effects of the images presented by the media on a daily basis. Specifically, the film challenges negative and limiting media labels so that youth can feel

empowered to realize their potential as leaders. “We hope that this film will spark important conversations between teachers, students and parents,” social studies department chair Jill Rose said. “Promoting a strong respect for others is something we encourage every day at our school, and this film supports our effort.” After the film, teachers from the school’s social studies and English departments will lead the audience in a discussion. For more information about the film, visit  www. missrepresentation.org.

Don’t dip into your savings to make a frivolous or extravagant purchase, as you will regret doing so later. Overlook criticism from someone in your inner circle - and don’t read too much into praise in the week to come.

Patience is a virtue. You may feel as if you are spinning your wheels when you want to move forward in the week ahead. You can only proceed or make progress when certain events fall into place.

Don’t jump to conclusions. Your fantasies could create serious problems if left unchecked. Talk things out with the other party to clear the air. The week to come won’t be as bad as you think.

Take nothing for granted. You may be quite content and happy with your current relationship, but a partner may be feeling neglected. In the week ahead, let loved ones know that you care.

Keep the clamoring crowds content. It falls on you to make sure family problems are solved in the week to come. Talk things out with loved ones to maintain a happy and productive home.

In the third annual Voyager Media Girls AllStar game, the North squad scored the first six points of the game en route to a 74-51 win Sunday night at Plainfield Central. The North, which consisted of players from Maine South, Benet, Bolingbrook, Downers South, Maine East and Westmont never trailed in the game and built a 23-10 lead on a basket by Benet’s Taylor Valentine. The South squad, which comprised of girls from Plainfield East, Plainfield Central, Plainfield South, Plainfield North, Joliet Central, Joliet West and Minooka, kept the game close though and trailed 37-27 at the half on four free throws by Plainfield North’s Tiffany Wayne. “I had a lot of fun,” Wayne said. “There were a lot of girls that I’ve known for the last four years and it is great to play with them one more time before we go off to college.” A steal and basket early in the second half by Maine East’s Monay Crawford gave the North squad a 45-31 advantage, but North responded and got to within nine at 45-36 on a basket by Khadija Cooley. A 10-point run by North, with five points from Bolingbrook’s DeLacy Anderson made it 57-38. An eight-point run soon after on four points from Allie Hill made it 65-42. “It felt good playing again with my teammates,” Anderson said. “It is good to see how different players have different styles of play.” Hill ended up scoring nine straight points See GIRLS, page 13

Sunday night’s fourth annual Voyager Media Prep Shootout boys senior all-star contest between the North and South featured plenty of end-to-end action, athleticism, dunks and three-pointers. For the most part, it also was a tightly contested matchup until the South pulled away late and won, 112-101. The South finished the first half with an exclamation point. Three straight dunks—two from Andre Norris (Plainfield Central) and one from game MVP Marlon Johnson of Joliet West—lifted the South to a 4841 halftime cushion. Johnson added some three pointers to his dunks and scored 18 points. “I am working on my shot because I am going to play at the next level and I have to be able to knock something down,” he said. “I got to the rim and dunked a few and had a lot of fun.” Johnson is the second Joliet player to win the MVP award in four years, as Anthony Shoemaker won two years ago. “It’s nice to win,” Johnson said.“It is good to hold the torch.” Despite giving away height to a taller South squad, the North took its first lead since midway through the first half, 50-48, thanks to 7-0 run to begin See BOYS, page 12

BOYS Continued from page 11 the second half. Benet’s Bobby Wehril (13 points) rifled in a three-pointer to give the North the lead. “It is nice to get out here and play with all these different guys,” Wehrli said. “I have played against the Notre Dame kids for four years in conference and I just played against Bolingbrook in the regional, so it was great to play with them. Some of these guys I have played with and against since sixth grade in AAU ball. Rob Mahlke of Downers North, who had all of his eight points in the second half, made it 59-53 with a bucket inside. Kevin Honn of cross-town rival Downers South, who tallied 14 points, scored four straight points that later put the North on top, 6964. But the South later regained the lead, 74-70, after outscoring the North, 10-1. Robinson and Jaylen Nunn (Romeoville) each connected from beyond the arc during this sequence. Yet the North responded with a 10-1 run of its own to open up its 80-75 margin. However, the South regained an 82-80 advantage following a 7-0 run that was capped by a trey from Plainfield East’s Austin Robinson (12 points). Alec Boyd of Bolingbrook answered for the North with a three to make it 83-82, but the South sprinted ahead for good, outscoring the North 16-4 to surge ahead, 98-87. Norris and Brian Bennett (Plainfield East) combined for nine points during the run. The 6-10 Johnson put his team over the century mark, 102-92, with a dunk—one of two he had during the second half. Courtney Cole (Lockport) complemented Johnson offensively with 17 points. “Some of them I’ve played with outside of school, but this was the first time I’ve played with them on an organized team,” Cole said. “It was good to see I could play with some other good people.” Nunn contributed 13 and K.T. Carpenter (Joliet Central) scored 12. “It felt good to play with the guys I’ve been playing against since the seventh and eighth grade,” Nunn said. “It was about having fun. Those are like our rivals, Bolingbrook and Downers Grove South. We don’t like

them over here, the Lockport, Romeoville and Plainfield. I like how it is split up, it’s good. It was fun watching Marlon dunk everything. “It’s good because I’ll never get to play with these guys again. I’ll be going up against Nate (Washington) in college next year. We’re happy with how we represented Romeoville.” Nunn’s teammate, Uchenna Akuba, played in the shootout in his only season as a Spartan. “I’m happy with how I played,” Akuba said. “I got to play with players from our conference who are the same level as me, so it was great playing with them. It was also great to play with my teammates, Jaylen and Nate for the last time. It’s good to keep the tradition going. My favorite moment was throwing the dunk down. It was a good dunk.” Norris added nine points in his last game on his home floor. “It felt good to play in my gym and play with the other players,” Norris said. “It feels good to get out here one more time. I was happy with how I played. I didn’t want to take it too serious, but it was good to get out and play. We wanted to play good team ball and have fun.” Other District 202 players enjoyed their final high school game. “It was fun seeing them play last year, but it was fun playing this year and showcase my skills in this one,” Plainfield East’s Dee Brown said. “It’s always fun playing with your teammates and with guys on different teams. It was good to finish out that way, plus we got the win. This is like the real NBA game. We came out here in the first half and played around. We came out in the second half and that’s where we finished it off.” “Coming out here and Matt Honold/Bugle staff

I knew Sidney (Prasse) and Madeline (Eilers). It was cool playing with the Bolingbrook girls. It made it a faster pace. I could tell everyone was out of shape so it was kind of a street ball thing, which is cool. I like that; it’s fun and it was a good experience.” South finished with four points apiece from Cooley and Plainfield Central’s Brigid Hanley, including a buzzer-beating threepointer. “I had a great time, it was fun,” Cooley said. “I got to play with girls I’ve never played with and played against some of them. For us to come out and do as good as we did with no practice, I think it was a nice game, I like it. It’s an honor to be known as

It was fun because I played with them when I was younger.” Crawford was awarded the MVP award of the game after finishing with eight points to go along with several steals and assists. “It feels good,” said Crawford, who has enlisted in the Air Force. “I worked hard, and it feels good to win the MVP.” Hill finished with a game-high 12 points, while Benet’s Sidney Prasse and Anderson each scored 10 points. Dec finished with six points and her teammate Erin Bommersbach scored five. “We have all been rivals over the years, but it was great to get out there and play with some of these girls from the area,” Prasse said. “We all have something in common. That is part of basketball, to put the rivalry behind you and leave it all on the court and I thought we did that and played well. It was a lot of fun.” South was paced by 10 points apiece from Plainfield East’s

Dominique Hartsfield and Cooley. Joliet Central’s Nijea Dixon added eight points and Wayne scored seven. “We had to come out and play with confidence no matter who we were playing,” Cooley said. “We knew who we were up against and we just went out and played our hardest. We just had to get as many rebounds as we could and limit their touches inside.” “I just wanted to try to get back in a rhythm one last time,” Hartsfield said. “I think it had a great deal to do with how I played. It was fun to play against Bolingbrook because I play against them over the summer and it was like another pickup game.” “I had a wonderful game,” Dixon said. “I had a great time playing with everyone. I’m not from here, but I still had a good experience playing with everyone. I did the best I could and I hung in there and gave good effort.” See GIRLS, page 15

After a fairly dull first day, the NCAA Tournament heated up over the weekend. The first day saw just two upsets, with Colorado beating UNLV and VCU holding off Wichita State, which was the only real game that was decided in the final seconds. It also featured a lot of controversy as top seeded Syracuse rallied to beat UNC

Ashville, thanks in large part to the refs. Friday started off hot and didn’t cool off the rest of the weekend. It opened with a 19-point comeback in the second half for Texas, only to fall short in the end against Cincinnati. Then came what appeared to be the upset of the tournament as No. 2 seed Missouri, thanks to a lucky shooting day from No. 15 seed Norfolk State, became just the fifth No. 2 seed to lose

in the first round in an instant classic. Three people picked the Tigers to win the National Championship in our contest. Then came the real shocker a few hours later when No. 2 Duke, winner of four titles in the past 21 years, fell to No. 15 Lehigh. Meanwhile, No. 13 seed Ohio was busy shocking No. 4 Michigan. The night ended with Notre Dame losing to Xavier on a lane violation. The weekend competition as just as fierce, with great game

on top of great game, especially Saturday as nearly every game went to the wire. Now that the Sweet 16 is set, it is time to see what will happen next. All four No. 1 seeds are in play, as well as two No. 2 seeds, so there are still plenty of teams in play for the title. In the Midwest bracket, both North Carolina and Kansas get double digit seeds, so there is a good possibility of the two meeting up. The top two seeds in the

East, Syracuse and Ohio State, both have tough matchups with Wisconsin and Cincinnati, respectively. The South has the rematch between Kentucky and Indiana and a Kentucky/Baylor regional final would be fun. In the West, Michigan State and Louisville should be a great defensive battle, while Marquette and Florida could be a highscoring affair. No matter what happens, expect the unexpected!

at the end of the game we saw the score, but the girls kept their enthusiasm and cheered for one another.” “We did pretty good against them,” Hanley said. “If they had Morgan (Tuck) playing, that could have changed things. We did pretty good against them.” Meanwhile, it was fun for the North girls to play with the Bolingbrook girls. “They were good (referring to playing with the North team and the Bolingbrook girls),” Crawford

said. “They were open-minded and friendly, and we connected immediately. I know they were fun to play with.” “Being from such a small school, I was just honored to be invited to play in this game,” Westmont’s Jackie Zakhem said. “It was awesome to play with girls that I look up to.They were the sweetest people to play with, and I’m glad we pulled out a win. “It’s always nice to play with a lot of good players,” Maine

South’s Michelle Maher said.“And it was nice to put the (Maine South) jersey on one more time. They’re so athletic (referring to the Bolingbrook girls) and so it’s really nice to play in a game like this with them.” “It was great to play with girls from all over the area,” Benet’s Nicole Valentine said. “It was fun because girls that we really didn’t like before, we became really good friends with. When we played Bolingbrook (in the playoffs), we obviously didn’t

like to play against them, but we realized they are all really nice girls and it was a lot of fun.” After the game, Hanley was awarded with the Jeremy Izzo award, which is given to a senior All-Star that displays great character. Hanley overcame a pair of ACLs to set the District 202 scoring record. “It’s really nice to get,” Hanley said. “I didn’t expect that at all. It’s a really nice honor.”

them are my friends and I know them.We were messing around a little bit, but then we got behind and we didn’t want to lose.” For the North, Josh Little of Bolingbrook finished with 15, including 11 in the first half. Downers South’s Jamall Millison added nine. “It was fun out there. I knew a lot of guys and had a really good time,” Little said. “We got to play with different guys and see what everyone. We saw the big guys like Marlon (Johnson from Joliet West) hitting threes out there, so it was a great time. It is nice to come out here and represent

Bolingbrook.” Little was joined by Boyd (five points), Nick Malonga (seven points) and Cam Burnett (four points). “They had the height, but I had all the speed,” joked the 5-foot, 6-inch Burnett.“I was able to dribble through and hit some open shots. I could have shot better, but all around the whole thing was a good experience. I really had fun. I play with a lot of those guys on the same AAU team with the Illinois T-Wolves. It is nice to keep the Raiders coming to the game. We had four of our guys here today and

it was really great to play with them.” Notre Dame forward Joe Ferrici tallied seven points in the game for the North squad. “It was just about having fun,” he said.“I’ve been out of this (the Notre Dame) uniform for about two or three weeks and it was just nice to get back in it and play. It was a lot of fun. It was a lot of up-and-down. It was like an AAU tournament. I liked the pace.” Notre Dame teammate Greg Leifel scored eight points said he would like to walk on and play either basketball or golf at a

Division III school. “This game was fun,” Leifel said. “It was very up-pace, a lot of shots, very much (geared towards) offense. But it was just about having fun. I formed some quick friendships. I had a lot of things in common with these guys.” “It was fun,” Cole said. “It was a good experience playing here. It was a good time. We came out here to have fun, but coming away with the win was a bonus. It was a nice way to end my career.”

Food

Serve a different kind of green for springtime One of the highlights of the springtime harvest for me is the arrival of fresh local asparagus. And, yes, nowadays you can find asparagus in the markets virtually yearround thanks to international shipping. But the finest flavor and texture will almost always come from fresh asparagus grown closer to home and quickly whisked to market after harvest. I especially like the so-called “pencil” asparagus.As the name applies, these spears are as thin as pencils, being harvested while still very young, and they have a subtle flavor and delicate texture that seems to me the essence of spring. Pencil asparagus need very little in the way of preparation. All you have to do is rinse them and then bend them near their cut stem ends to snap off any woody part. They are so tender and mild that you can even serve them raw as part of a vegetable platter with dips. To cook them, they turn perfectly al dente, tender but still slightly crisp, after just a

couple of minutes of steaming, boiling, grilling, or - if first cut into bite-sized pieces - stirfrying. But one of my favorite ways to prepare these early crops of asparagus is to turn them into a subtly flavorful, beautiful pale green asparagus soup. For such a preparation, you just have to chop up the asparagus spears into small pieces and then simmer them in a mixture of mildly onion-scented broth and cream. (I also sometimes like to add a touch of honey, which gently highlights the vegetable’s touch of natural sweetness.) Once the asparagus is tender, all that remains to do is puree it in a food processor or blender, pass it through a sieve to remove any fibers and achieve absolute smoothness, and then add a final accent of fresh lemon juice. The result of this process that takes less than half an hour is a bright, light-green soup that tastes like springtime in a bowl. Serve it as the first course of your springtime dinner - and then go on enjoying it regularly as long as fresh asparagus is in season. (c) 2012 WOLFGANG PUCK WORLDWIDE, INC.

FRESH SPRINGTIME ASPARAGUS SOUP Serves 6 1 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 1 cup finely chopped yellow onion 4 cups organic chicken broth 2 cups heavy cream, plus 1/2 cup extra lightly whipped for optional garnish 2 tablespoons honey 1 teaspoon salt, plus extra as needed 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper, plus extra as needed 2-1/2 pounds fresh organic pencil-thin asparagus, trimmed and chopped into 1/4-inch pieces 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice 1 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley or chives Heat the olive oil in a nonreactive pot over medium heat.Add the butter.When it foams, add the onion, reduce the heat to low and saute, stirring frequently, until the onion turns translucent and very tender, about 7 to 10 minutes, taking care not to let the onion brown. Stir in the broth, 2 cups cream, honey, salt, and pepper. Raise the heat to medium-high, bring to a simmer, and continue simmering for 5 minutes. Stir in the asparagus and cook until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove the pot from the stove.Working in batches to avoid overfilling, and following manufacturer’s instructions for working carefully with hot liquids to avoid spattering, use a food processor or blender to puree the soup. As each batch is pureed, pour it into a fine-meshed strainer held over a large mixing bowl, pressing it through with a rubber spatula and then discarding the fibers left in the strainer. Return the pureed soup to the pot and reheat gently, stirring in the lemon juice.Taste and, if necessary, adjust the seasonings with more salt and white pepper. Ladle the soup into heated bowls. If you like, add a dollop of whipped cream to each serving. Serve immediately, garnished with parsley or chives.

Gratitude is the best workplace tool Q. I’m trying to move ahead in my company and have been reading a lot of success books. What do you consider one of the best attitudes to cultivate that are common to people who get ahead in corporations? A. Gratitude is one of the most effective workplace power tools. Surprisingly, in today’s self-centered business world, gratitude is also one of the most underutilized career tools. Even Oprah (who has launched many careers than anyone) was quoted as observing that she can count the people who have thanked her on one hand. To bring the power of gratitude into your career, get out a sheet of paper and think of everyone who has helped you. Go year by year and month by month through your history and make

notes about what each person did for you. Now begin to put together a gratitude action plan. You can write appreciative emails and send written cards or even flowers or treats.The Internet makes finding and sending small gifts to anyone in the world an easy task. Make sure that with every thank-you you send out, you tailor what you write or do for the person you are appreciating. Cookie-cutter thank-you cards come across as canned and insincere. Genuine personal thoughts and feelings about the person who has helped you are

always the right color and right size. A little known secret about men is they enjoy flowers just as much as women. If you have a special male mentor, you’ll be surprised how impressed and flattered he is by fresh flowers. Remember, everyone who walks by a desk with flowers asks whom they are from. He will be reminded of your thoughtful gesture every time someone asks. After you’ve finished with your past, look at your workplace, customers and coworkers through a lens of gratitude. Believe me, no one in your workplace ever goes home and complains about how they had too much appreciation that day at work. When a coworker, customer, or even your boss goes

out of their way to help you, let them know you appreciate it! People sometimes talk about having an “attitude of gratitude” because it sounds snappy and rhymes.Beyond a popular phrase, it is an uncommon perspective, especially in the workplace. If you can cultivate and practice the art of appreciating what people do for you, they’ll be more motivated to help you in the future. No one gets ahead without a network that is invested in seeing you succeed. Learn to put gratitude into the banks of those who invest in you, and watch the dividends of success roll in.

The last word(s) Q. My boss just hired his favorite brother to work on our

team. The guy is completely inept. My coworkers think I should just tell our boss the truth. Is there a diplomatic way to let our boss know he needs to fire his brother? A. Yes, let the facts speak to your boss and remain silent unless you are ready to look for a new job.

Determining retirement number a tough process By Jill Schlesinger Tribune Media Services

A former client once argued with me about his “retirement number.” He couldn’t believe that he needed $1 million in savings before he could retire. “That amount just seems like way more money than is necessary!” But after walking through the variables and calculations, he finally said,“Geez, a million bucks. ... I guess that’s my number.” Determining your retirement number is like getting on the bathroom scale: Sometimes it’s a pleasant surprise; however, more often than not it forces you to face an ugly truth. Just as taking the dreaded step onto the scale is a necessary part of the weight-loss process, so too is crunching the numbers for retirement planning. According to the Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) 2011 Retirement Confidence Survey, only 42 percent of American workers have taken the time and effort to complete a retirement

needs calculation. Without going through that process, you’re flying blind into your retirement. Please know that this is not rocket science, especially in an age when there are so many online retirement calculators available. I like EBRI’s Choose to Save Ballpark E$timate, which is easy to use, but your retirement plan/401(k) website probably has a tool available as well. The tricky part about using these calculators is that they ask you to estimate several factors that even economists can’t agree upon, like future inflation rate or expected rates of return on investments. My crystal ball isn’t perfect, but here are some sensible estimates that should help: - Inflation assumption: 4.5 percent (higher than where we are today, but most economists believe that inflation is headed up in the coming years). - Rate of investment return both before and after retirement: Consider your risk tolerance and err on the side of being conservative. If you’re stuck,

use 4-5 percent. Obviously, if you use a higher rate of return, the calculator will ultimately determine that you have to save a smaller amount.After our Great Recession and financial crash, I probably don’t have to tell you that higher return assumptions may not always work out as planned. - Life Expectancy - if you are younger than 50, use 95; if you’re older than 50, use 90. If you want a closer estimate, go to www. livingto100.com and use their Life Expectancy Calculator. Many calculators will take a percentage of your preretirement earnings (most use 80 percent) as a baseline for what you will need in the future sometimes called a “replacement rate.” A more precise way to determine that number is to figure out how much you spend today, isolate those expenses that won’t occur in retirement (so for example: mortgage payments, if you are on track to pay it off before retirement; tuition; child care; commuting

expenses) and poof, you have your replacement rate. When I was a young financial planner, it was common practice to remove Social Security and Medicare taxes from your anticipated future need, but now I think it’s probably best to assume that the money you were paying in FICA will be necessary to pay some or all of higher health care costs in the future, so leave that amount in for your calculation. Then you will be asked to plug in the amount of money you have already saved, your annual contributions to your retirement plans and other investment accounts, any future pension amounts, and a Social Security benefit. While Social Security might change in the future, most of the revisions being contemplated would not affect people who are currently over 50. For those under 50, you might have to wait longer to collect benefits or the benefit

amount could be reduced. To adjust for an altered Social Security landscape, you could simply raise your replacement rate by 5 percent. Once you have entered in all of the information, the calculator is going to spit out your results. For many, this moment could be as stressful as stepping on the scale. But only when you are armed with the necessary information can you alter your course to a smooth retirement. So don’t be afraid to take the plunge and discover your retirement number.
