STRETCH IRA NEWS CONTACT: Michael L. Stone, AAMS® CEO & Founder Milestone Investment Management, LLC (770) 830-0063 ml.stone@lpl.com Stretch IRA: A Handy Estate-Planning Tool A stretch IRA is a traditional IRA that passes from the account owner to one or more younger beneficiaries at the time of the account owner's death. Since the younger beneficiary has a longer life expectancy than the original IRA owner, he or she can "stretch" the life of the IRA by receiving smaller required minimum distributions (RMDs) each year over his or her life span. More money can then remain in the IRA with the potential for continued tax-deferred growth. Employing the stretch technique by naming a younger beneficiary (such as a child or grandchild) could provide significant long-term benefits. The uncertain nature of estate tax laws could make a stretch IRA a worthwhile tool for those with multi-million dollar estates. While the new estate tax limits currently allow a $5 million lifetime exclusion ($10 million for couples) and a 35% tax rate on amounts over that threshhold, they are scheduled to sunset after 2012.

Creating a stretch IRA has no effect on the account owner's RMD requirements, which continue to be based on his or her life expectancy. Once the account owner dies, however, beneficiaries begin taking RMDs based on their own life expectancies. Whereas the owner of a stretch IRA must begin receiving RMDs after reaching age 70 1/2, beneficiaries of a stretch IRA begin receiving RMDs after the account owner's death. In either scenario, distributions are taxable to the payee at current income tax rates. Beneficiaries have the right to receive the full value of their inherited IRA assets by the end of the fifth year following the year of the account owner's death. However, by opting to take only the required minimum amount instead, a beneficiary can theoretically stretch the IRA and tax-deferred growth throughout his or her lifetime. Other key considerations to note:

New rules allow beneficiaries to be named after the account owner's RMDs have begun, and beneficiary designations can be changed after the account owner's death (although no new beneficiaries can be named at that point).

The amount of a beneficiary's RMD is based on his or her own life expectancy, even if the original account owner's RMDs had already begun.

Note that the information presented here applies to traditional IRAs bequeathed to a nonspousal beneficiary. Special rules apply to spousal beneficiaries.

COMMISSIONER’S CORNER Commissioner’s Corner May, 2014

Vicki Anderson

HB 87 is official! The Governor has signed the bill which allows Fairfield to keep its voting precinct. Whoopee! Finally…let’s put this to bed. Thanks to everyone who had anything at all to do with fighting to keep this in the news and finally to victory!

Applications to run for the Fairfield Board are online and must be turned in by the end of May. You must give up your first born child to apply, pull your hair out and submit it for drug screening, and never have overdrawn your checking account. Well, I am exaggerating, but not by much. I can run for president of the United States because I am over 35 and a citizen. I can be a county commissioner because I live in Carroll County and have paid my taxes. I cannot run for the board of Fairfield Plantation and that is because of Three Daughters Boutique. Why would you want to do a drug screen on hair? Why not pee in a cup? The only person I know at this time that has signed on to run is Billy Priest. Brave Soul! Everyone needs to vote for Billy Priest. He is one of the most honest people I know. Billy will always tell you the truth, whether you want to know it or not. I hope more of you sign on to run with Billy. If you do not, then the board members will be appointed. The only way the Board can make this change is to modify the documents. In July of

It was determined at that time that the fees charged at John Tanner would cover the costs of operating the park. To make a long story short, the County started charging $5 to enter and park at Little Tallapoosa Park without the Commissioners knowing anything about it. If you were walking or riding a bike, you were charged $5.

S U R RO U N D I N G OU R S ELV E S W I T H S U R RO U N D S O U N D Surrounding Ourselves with Surround Sound Many people seem amused that Mister and I don’t have a TV in the great-room (or the bedroom), that we don’t have an iPod (or iPad), or that we prefer to read books “oldschool style” instead of downloading them to our deChristina Henggeler vice. We aren’t against the above things; in fact, we enjoy them as much as the next person. I am just too busy painting the greatroom to sit down for long. The following essay is written tongue in cheek, as a mock anthropological write-up of the American and Their Home. Flash back to before we established a “civilized” economy such as we have been used to in modern times. Survival was a matter of basics and most humans resided firmly in the very bottom layers of Maslow’s hierarchy of needs pyramid: trying to fill the most basic physiological needs of air, water, food, shelter, sex, and sleep. As society evolved, we became more “civilized” and began prioritizing things like fitting into society and finding love. Once our class systems and social order were well established, self-esteem became a priority: assuring ourselves that each one of us is valuable and leads a meaningful, worthwhile life. I believe a good amount of that is signified in

the construction of our modern homes and the requirements we have for our twenty first century nests. We absolutely need a number of things that no solid middle-class home can do without: 1. Centralized temperature control: at no point should we allow our bodies to feel too cold or too warm, lest we be uncomfortable in our space and unable to enjoy all of the other creature comforts that fuel our affirmation of self 2. A flat screen TV with as much cable as we can afford: multimedia exposure that takes the place of art: usually in a space of honor centrally located in our primary living area. Likely above the fireplace but always located up on the wall or encased / atop a surface in front of a wall directly across from a comfy seating area. Our window to the world allows us to choose the programming that represents our interests from a seemingly infinite set of niche-oriented choices, affirming our membership in the tribes we lay claim to peripherally assume membership of. 3. Surround sound / a curated sound system: whether it be through an ability to create immersive experiences with our multimedia entertainment or to optimize our experience with music. Music, in particular, tends to cover a lot of self-actualization bases so optimizing the way we experience it is a top priority for many modern humans in their households and in general. It’s why we also tend to prioritize taking musical experiences with us: in our cars or on the go with portable devices.

4. A desktop / laptop computer or tablet with Internet access: see item 2 – a lot of similar reasons for this need overlap. In addition, it allows us to perform functions such as interpersonal communication, paying bills and creating things with speed and agility, which makes us feel important, productive and ultimately gives us a sense of personal freedom. 5. Refrigeration: so we can keep an abundance of food options available and preserved and enjoy the tastes we crave at whim. Food has “evolved” beyond a fueling-up function to a substance that contributes to identity formation, nostalgic comfort and creative exploration. What seems like something so rudimentary to us (like having a refrigerator) is actually a product of a very modern high-maintenance lifestyle rooted in this selfactualization portion of our needs. Above is how I imagine an anthropological write-up of suburbia would look. Maybe I miss torturing myself writing papers; with distance all things acquire a rosy glow. Number 1 is Mister’s idea- he says to keep a woman happy a man has to provide climate controlled decorate-able space. Numbers 2 through 3- maybe I am trying to talk Mister into a flat screen TV with surround sound; I gifted him with a giant recliner, so we are definitely ready for a TV. And number 5? Number 5 is just to remind y’all to bring ice for the drinks when you come over to our nest. Christina Henggeler

A GIRL HAS TO EAT Dining out, cooking in, and everything delish in between We go to the city frequently to try out new restaurants but when we don’t have the little bit of extra time to get to the city, we are extremely thankful that we have many good restaurants to choose from right here in town. One of our favorites used to be The Blue Brick, the French place in Villa Rica. Our tummies were so sad when it closed earlier this year. When we heard about the new place taking its spot, The Southern Table, we were definitely intrigued and hoped it would be at least half as good as its building’s predecessor. The cuisine is described as contemporary southern prepared my favorite way- farm to table. There’s nothing better than using local, in season ingredients to take familiar dishes to another level. Our hopes were deliciously met when we tried it out for the first time a few weeks ago. We started out the meal with some fried pimento cheese, yes you heard me right- fried pimento cheese. Like pimento cheese isn’t good enough the traditional way they brilliantly kicked it up a notch by breading, frying it up and serving it with a creamy white sauce with a touch of balsamic reduction. My eating partner in crime ordered the meat-

loaf, no shock there, and it was out of this world. It was moist, not too dense and not masked by bread filler. And then there was the sauce on top that set it apart from any meatloaf I’ve ever had. It was a bbq-esque sauce that I wished I had got a side of to dip everything in. I ordered what turned out to be the juiciest fried chicken I have literally ever had. This pains me to say because I pride myself on my own succulent fried chicken. I thought I had figured out the secret to keeping it moist by soaking in buttermilk overnight but they must know an extra secret because this was way beyond mine. The seasoning could have been a little heavier but the tenderness made up for it. Both dishes were served with greens that were very tasty and not mushy like I’m used to being served. The macaroni and cheese was decent, not the best but I won’t turn it down when we go back. And the cornbread, served with sorghum and butter, really made the meal scrumptiously complete. All and all, we are pleased to welcome The Southern Table to Villa Rica and look forward to going back and trying the rest of their menu. They have a brunch on Sunday that has a dish with homemade sausage as the star and if you know my love for pork you can probably guess I can’t wait to go try it. So if you are out and about and looking for something new but wanting familiar dishes I highly recommend stopping into The Southern Table. 215 S Carroll Rd Villa Rica, GA 30180 Michelle Nyberg

KIWANIS CLUB The Eliminate Project As many of you are aware, Kiwanis International (KI) and UNICEF have joined forces to eliminate the deadly disease Maternal/Neonatal Tetanus (MNT) from 40 undeveloped countries in the world. Sixty thousand babies and mothers die each year from this curable malady. The infants who contract this disease experience unbelievable convulsions which cause their bones to break. In addition, they de-

velop a hypersensitivity to light and sound and can not withstand the human touch. If there is any saving grace in this tragedy, it is that the babies usually succumb within seven days. During the General Assembly at our fall training a video was played that showed the pain these infants suffer. Observing this made me think about my own children and their healthy start in life. Needless to say, it was emotionally draining. We can make a contribution to this project by setting up our own fund raising campaign. Who will step up and assume the lead for our club? KI has vowed to remove this disease from the face of the

earth and prevent 129,000,000 future mothers and babies from being affected by MNT. Recently I heard an Irish proverb, “Nodding your head does not row the boat.” Let’s not just nod our heads. Let’s really get involved in this very worthy cause. “If you won’t be better tomorrow than you are today, than what do you need tomorrow for?” Rabbi Nahman of Bratscav

PLANTATION PLANTERS CLUB Garden Club Tour of Gardens a wonderful Morning! On Wednesday, May 8th the club had it’s annual Tour of Gardens. The weather was balmy, and the logistics were flawless, thanks to Marilyn Coulon and her team. Club members met at the Country Club and were divided into driving groups. The four groups divided up and went to the four homes, changing locations every half hour. At noon everyone congregated at the Shaw residence. Habiba and her husband, Tim, with the help of volunteers

from her exercise class, served a luscious Indian style lunch for everyone. The guests spread out over the lovely home to chat and enjoy each other's company. The four yards on tour were the Shaw’s on Lake View, John and Cathy Mourey's, on South Bend Court, Peggy Pottorf's, and Cathy Joyce and Riley Dixon's, both on Tarnwood Drive. Each was outstanding in a different way. The next fun Garden Club event will be on June 3, when the group boards a bus for a day trip to the eastern side of Georgia. First stop will be the

Holy Spirit Monastery in Conyers, GA. They are famous for their bonsai trees and well tended gardens. Lunch will be a buffet at the Southern Cross Dude ranch in Madison. This will be followed by a driving tour of the beautiful homes in that town and some time to do a little shopping in historic downtown Madison. The Garden Club (real name: Plantation Planters) is open to everyone and we invite you to join us and start having fun! Until next month, Jeri Houpe

WOMEN’S CLUB Plantation Women’s Club The Plantation Women’s Club met on May 4th and enjoyed The Sassy Ladies fashion show with almost 60 members in attendance. We would like to thank the great women of The Sassy Ladies shop in Villa Rica for hosting this fun event. I have to say I truly enjoyed my first modeling gig as did all the ladies that modeled with me. The shop is in downtown Villa Rica next to Gabe’s restaurant and has a great assortment of outfits and accessories. The ladies of the Plantation Women’s Club would again like to thank all the great volunteers who helped with our spring yard sale. We had a record breaking success in fundraising and could not have done so without everyone who helped. We would also like to especially thank the great men and women of the Fairfield Fire Dept. for their help with traffic and parking as the turnout was truly awesome. We are truly grateful to all who gave of themselves to help make this a success. We are

also proud to announce that we were able to give out over $2,000 in scholarships to some deserving Fairfield and Villa Rica students. Our volunteers can truly help dreams come true and brighten the lives of our youth with inspiration and knowledge. Our thoughts and prayers are with resident Janice Sundberg and her daughter Stacy who miraculously survived a terrible car accident recently on I-20. Plantation Women’s Club member Marie Miller is heading up food donations for their recovery time, anyone wanting to lend a hand can contact Marie at 770 836-1588. Date to remember: August 17th- Plantation Women’s Club Casino Night at the Club. The next Plantation Women’s Club meeting will be held on Saturday June 1st, at 11:00am at the Country Club. The service project for the month will be items for our raffle baskets for Casino Night. Ladies are asked to bring in items such as: books, little bottles of wine, popcorn, movies, tools, and gift cards to name a few. We have plenty of baskets

themselves and ask that you NOT bring hotel items. The best idea I heard was to get together with a few ladies and pick a theme for your basket items. This month we will have Bunny Cook visit and share with the group about her works in the ministry of women prisoners.

LINK BETWEEN CALCIUM SUPPLEMENTS AND HEART DISEASE Link Between Calcium Supplements and Heart Disease Raises the Question: Take Them or Toss Them? By: Dr. Habiba N. Shaw Here we go again. First it was vitamin E. Then it was beta carotene. Now calcium supplements are being called on the carpet after researchers claimed they may do more harm than good. Researchers from the University of Zurich followed 24,000 men and women for 11 years. They found that those who took calcium supplements were 86% more likely to have a heart attack than those who didn’t. Yet those who got calcium from natural sources had a lower risk. The study appears in the June 2012 issue of the journal Heart. This follows earlier research showing this same link. A 2010 review published in the British Medical Journal examined 15 trails and found an increased risk of heart attack with calcium supplement use. Since calcium supplements are recommended to prevent osteoporosis for virtually everyone over age 50, this leaves millions of people wondering whether they should ditch their daily calcium pills. Three Harvard professors weigh in on the issue. Calcium and the Heart Over time, calcium can accumulate in arteries. It makes them stiffer and less responsive to the demands of the body. Rigid arteries contribute to high blood pressure, angina (chest pain with exertion or stress), and heart failure. Calcium also builds up in plaque, the cholesterol-filled pockets that grow inside arteries like tiny pimples. By narrowing arteries, plaque can choke off the supply of blood to heart muscle and other vital tissues. If a plaque bursts open, it can trigger a heart attack, stroke, or sudden cardiac arrest. What researchers don’t know is whether this process is influenced by the amount of calcium a person takes in each day from supplements. Supplements are Okay…for now A decision to stop taking calcium supplements should not be made on this study, says Dr. Deepak Bhatt, a cardiologist at Harvard-affiliated Brigham and Women’s Hospital. “The study did not provide iron-clad evidence of a connection between calcium supplements and heart attack. Although it’s not the first report suggesting this connection, no study has definitely proven that excessive calcium intake contributes to plaque formation and heart disease,” Dr. Bhatt told me. He questions the researchers’ explanation that excess calcium is deposited in the arteries, because the bones have limited ability to absorb calcium given in larger doses than found in foods. “We know that calcium in plaque is a response to injury, an effort to wall off an area of the artery that has been damaged by cholesterol or smoking, for example. It can happen in people whose calcium levels are in the normal range,” he says. Dietary calcium is important, as it helps to build strong bones and keep them healthy. That’s why Dr. Bhatt would support people who, on their doctor’s advice, get some of the recommended 1,000 to 1,200 milligrams of calcium a day through supplements because they can’t get that amount from food. “It’s perfectly reasonable to stick with these recommendations regarding calcium intake for now,” he says. Calcium-rich Foods are Better Dr. Richard Lee, co-editor of the Harvard Heart Letter and a cardiologist who specializes in finding new approaches to treating cardiovascular diseases, is more cautious. Because calcium supplements have not been proven safe without a doubt, and most people can get enough calcium through diet, he suggests that people try to get their daily allowance of this mineral from food. “I don’t think people should take calcium supplements unless they understand there may be a heart hazard that appears in the future. When people really pin me down, I tell them to take a once-a-day multivitamin and eat a balanced diet. That is plenty for almost everyone,” he says. Supplements are just that Dr. David Slovik, an osteoporosis specialist at Massachusetts General Hospital, agrees with Dr. Bhatt that the research connecting calcium supplements with heart attack does not provide enough clarity to challenge current recommendations. He suggests people not rely on supplements as their primary source of calcium. “I tell my patients to try to get as much calcium from food as possible. They should also exercise and take vitamin D to help maximize and maintain their bone strength,” he says. Food Sources for Calcium • Dairy: yogurt, low-fat cheese, milk • Produce: spinach, kale, broccoli, turnip greens, bok choy, black beans, oranges • Protein: sardines, salmon, clams • Other: sesame seeds, almonds Tovey’s World Always avoid smoking cigarettes or try not being underweight, since both can reduce bone density. High-impact and Low-impact weight-bearing exercises help build bones and keep them strong.You can also strengthen bone density through walking, jogging, yoga, dancing, golf, tennis and lifting weights.

W I L LY ’ S F I T N E S S C O R N E R WILLY’S FITNESS CORNER By Wilhelmina Barry, IFTA Certified Personal Trainer TRUTHS ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS?!! When you gain or lose fat, what exactly is happening in your body??

carbohydrates, it is important to note that simple carbohydrates, such as refined sugar, processed cereals, sugars, sweets & fruit juices elevate blood glucose & insulin levels. This also stimulates fat storage.

The fat cell is the central player in the body fat game. Body fat is made up of millions of tiny fat cells, each one a spherical sac filled with a droplet of oil.

To get fat out of the cell, fat molecules must be released back into the bloodstream and used as fuel. Regular aerobic exercise, in combination with anaerobic exercise & a low-fat diet, are the best ways to trigger the release of stored fat.

When a person gains body fat, fat cells fill up with more fat & increase in size. Likewise, when a person loses body fat, the fat cells release fat & shrink in size. Ultimately, the size of your fat cells is relative to the balance of calorie intake (what you eat) and output (your activity level).

Aerobic exercise must be performed for a total 0f 30 minutes or more to stimulate fat metabolism. Consistent exercise teaches your body how to be an efficient fat burner rather than fat storer.

A diet high in fat supplies your fat cells with the means they need to grow bigger. Once digested, fat is carried thru the bloodstream where it is gobbled up by fat cells. Fat molecules are absorbed from the blood and stored in these fat cells.

A low fat diet inhibits fat storage by giving your fat cells less opportunity to grab fat from the bloodstream.

Although fat can enter fat cells more easily than
