Social Security temporarily drops for 2011 By David Uffington The amount you pay for Social Security will temporarily drop for 2011. In the past you and your employer have both paid 6.2 percent of your annual gross income into the Social Security fund. This year your portion goes down to 4.2 percent. Here's how that looks in real numbers: •If you make $30,000, your Social Security tax will fall from $1,860 to $1,260, thus saving you $600. That's $50 per month. •If you make $40,000, your Social Security tax will fall from $2,480 to $1,680, thus saving you $800. That's $66 per month. •If you make $50,000, your Social Security tax will fall from $3,100 to $2,100, thus saving you $1,000. That's $83 per month. •If you're self-employed you have been paying 12.4 percent of your income to

Social Security. For this year, that will drop to 10.4 percent. The government, one assumes, wants you to spend that extra money out in the marketplace to help the economy get back on its feet by creating other jobs. A better plan is to use it to help yourself. Here are a few things you can do with that (albeit small) amount of money: •If you have credit-card debt, pick a card and increase your monthly payment by that amount, perhaps even rounding up to the next $10 increment. •Catch up on past due accounts that have been costing you extra in fees and interest. •Add the extra as a principal payment on an existing loan, thereby shortening the life of that loan. •If you habitually run up debt at Christmas, once that debt is paid off, put the extra money in a Christmas savings account at the bank. By the end of this

year you'll have enough to pay cash for all your purchases. Whatever you do, don't take on new payments on the assumption that you'll continue to have that increased amount in your pocket over the long haul. NOTE: If you usually file early and itemize your deductions, the Internal Revenue Service doesn't want your tax return yet. It's not ready. The reason is that computers haven't been programmed to accommodate a few new changes in laws. Aim for the second half of February. If you use computer software, be sure to get the latest updates.

Social Security numbers were first issued to identify those who were getting benefits. Now it's become a national ID number, and far too many people have access to it. Theft of Social Security numbers is big business. With that little number, plus your name and address, thieves can steal your identity and take your money or run up debt in your name. At the very least, it can mean spending untold hours straightening out the mess when your credit report has errors. With that number, someone can get medical services in your name, and at your expense, or refinance your mortgage and take the profits. For those who've put together a nice nest egg, it can mean losing everything you've worked for over the years. McAfee, a computer security company, put together a list of the Top 10 places

where our Social Security numbers are most likely to be stolen. Starting with the riskiest places, they are: universities and colleges, banks and financial institutions, hospitals, state governments, local governments, federal governments, medical businesses that provide equipment or billing services, nonprofit organizations, technology companies, medical insurance and medical offices. While it's often necessary to give your Social Security number to get services, cut your risk by being careful. Send for a free copy of your credit report every year to make sure it doesn't have errors. Invest in a shredder, or share one with friends. Shred any mail (unless you need to file it away) that has your personal information on it. If you're hunting for a job, don't automatically put your Social Security number on the application.

Try these handy tips If you're working on a project and need to hold a nail in place until you drive it in, consider a dab of Play-Doh. It works very well on horizontal projects, and it can be used briefly to hold up small wall-hanging nails as well. If you want less rise in your cake, try using eggs straight from the refrigerator. This is especially good for sheet cakes that will be cut to stack.

Strange, but true

HOCUS - FOCUS

Sports quiz

By Samantha Weaver

By Chris Richcreek

It was beloved British mystery novelist and playwright Agatha Christie who made the following sage observation: "It is a curious thought, but it is only when you see people looking ridiculous that you realize just how much you love them." Some toads can live for up to a year without eating a single thing. Those who study such things say that not all your fingernails grow at the same rate. It seems the nail on your middle finger is a bit of an overachiever - it grows faster than the nails on your other fingers. Lawmakers in Corpus Christi, Texas, evidently once found home alligator farming to be enough of a problem that they felt compelled to pass a law making it illegal to raise the crocodilians in a home. If you buy a postage stamp in Israel, rest assured that the glue you'll be licking on said stamp is kosher. If you (like me) are a fan of Krispy Kreme's donuts, you may be interested to learn that the pastries have been made with dough from the same secret recipe since 1937. During the first couple of years of life, dolphins gain an average of five pounds every month. Despite the fact that famed magician Harry Houdini exposed a number of mediums and psychics as frauds, Sherlock Holmes novelist Sir Arthur Conan Doyle persisted in believing that Houdini himself was a medium. The subcontinent of India is steadily moving closer to the continent of Asia by about 2 inches every year.

1. Who holds the record for the highest career batting average by a switch-hitter? 2. Name the two players who hold the major-league record for getting at least one hit on Opening Day for 14 consecutive seasons. 3. In the 2009 season, Tennessee's Chris Johnson became the sixth player in NFL history to rush for at least 2,000 yards in a season. Name three of the first five. 4. In the past eight years (2003-10), how many of the current Big East men's basketball teams reached the NCAA Final Four? 5. Name the last two goalies before Philadelphia's Michael Leighton in 2010 to have three shutouts in one NHL playoff series. 6. How many consecutive gold medals did Norway's Sonja Henie win in Olympic women's figure skating? 7. In 2010, golfer Arjun Atwal became the first Monday qualifier in 24 years to win on the PGA Tour. Who was the previous golfer to do it? (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Flashback By Mick Harper 1. Name the group that had hits with "Charity Ball" (1971), "I've Had It" (1974) and "Butter Boy" (1975). 2. Which singer was married to James Taylor? 3. Of the various cover versions of "Betcha by Golly, Wow," who released the song first? 4. Who is Michelle Karen Johnston, and what was the name of her first album? 5. Did Bob B. Soxx & the Blue Jeans ever have a Top 10 hit? 6. Who played all the instruments (except drums) on his first album? (No, not Prince.)

Bible trivia

By Wilson Casey

1. Is the Book of Zion in the Old or New Testament or neither? 2. From Acts 10, what Roman soldier was led to Christ by Peter? Cornelius, Dan, Menahem, Felix 3. In 1 Kings 6, who built the first temple in Jerusalem? Samuel, Joshua, Solomon, Aaron 4. When does the Christian Holy Day begin? Midnight, Sunrise, Noon, Sunset 5. When does the Jewish Holy Day begin? Midnight, Sunrise, Noon, Sunset 6. When does the Hindu Holy Day begin? Midnight, Sunrise, Noon, Sunset (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc.

Trivia test By Fifi Rodriguez 1. POP CULTURE: Who coined the phrase "flower power"? 2. SCIENCE: What is another name for beta carotene? 3. LANGUAGE: What does the title "mahatma" literally mean? 4. LITERATURE: Who wrote "The Color Purple"? 5. HISTORY: Who defeated Napoleon at Waterloo? 6. GEOGRAPHY: The Hawaiian islands are a part of what larger group of Pacific islands? 7. GENERAL KNOWLEDGE: Who was the private citizen who was filming President Kennedy's motorcade with a home-movie camera when Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas? 8. TELEVISION: What was the name of the German commandant in "Hogan's Heroes"? 9. COMICS: In the comic strip "Hi and Lois," what is the name of the couple's youngest daughter? 10.

Good health to go By Angela Shelf Medearis For many of us, healthy habits seem to go out the window as soon as we step beyond our front door. When eating away from home, planning may be the most important action a person can take when trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Planning ahead provides a variety of healthy food choices and portion sizes that are satisfying. With a little thought, anyone can plan a healthy snack or meal-on-the-go that best fits any situation. Use these as inspiration: •Whole-wheat bagel, low-fat cheese, pear, water •Fresh spinach, feta and cubed chicken in a whole-wheat pita, grapes, skim milk •Broth-based soup (pass on the cream soups), baked wheat crackers, apple •Sliced turkey with low-fat dressing wrapped in a lettuce leaf, baked chips, fresh berries, iced tea Try these tips if you are away from home: •If eating in the car is a trouble spot for you, make it a rule to only bring water in the car if you're traveling for an hour or less. •If your weakness is stopping at convenience stores, fast-food restaurants or vending machines, put those on your "Do not stop" list, or order only one item, like the grilled chicken, and bring the rest of your meal in a cooler. Lettuce, instead of a bun, wrapped around chicken or a burger is a tasty alternative. •Bring a healthy snack or lunch with you. Include some protein - it satisfies longer. With an apple, bring some peanut butter, cheese or nuts. •Carrying lunch to work saves you money, plus you have the added benefit of choosing what's healthiest for you! •Take healthy foods that travel well: Cottage cheese, vegetable sticks, yogurt, fruit, granola bars and nuts are great choices. •Keep refreezeable ice packs in your freezer to throw in your cooler when transporting meat, dairy and cooked foods. Freeze 100-percent juice packs or, in a pinch, throw some ice cubes in a zipperlock plastic bag. This recipe for Crunchy Chili Beans made from garbanzo beans (also known as chickpeas) is a healthy snack to pack for the days when you're on the go. They can be stored in an airtight container and left in your car for up to 7 days so that you always have a nutritious snack on hand. Chickpeas/Garbanzo beans are a good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber and help prevent blood-sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal. Garbanzo beans are high in protein and also promote slow burning of complex carbohydrates, thus increasing your energy by replenishing your iron stores. (Tips provided by Jill Kokkonen May, a health and nutrition educator with University of Minnesota Extension.)

Add mayonnaise, applesauce, water and vanilla extract. Mix well to combine. Spread batter into prepared cake pan. 3. Bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Place cake pan on a wire rack and allow to cool completely. Evenly spread whipped topping over cooled cake and sprinkle chocolate chips evenly over top. Freezes well. Serves 8.

Overnight Beef Stew This hearty beef-and-vegetable medley will be waiting for you at home after a long day away -- all you have to do before serving is thicken the cooking broth. For a stress-free morning, prep the ingredients the night before. 3 large celery stalks, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices 1 large onion, cut into 16 wedges 1 bag (16 ounces) peeled baby carrots 2 tablespoons ground coriander 1 tablespoon ground ginger 1 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper 4 pounds boneless beef chuck for stew, cut into 2-inch pieces 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1. Mix celery, onion and carrots in bottom of 5 1/2to 6 1/2-quart slow-cooker pot. In large bowl, combine coriander, ginger, salt, nutmeg, thyme and pepper; add beef and toss to coat well. Transfer beef mixture to pot with vegetables. Pour stewed tomatoes over beef. It's not necessary to stir. 2. Cover pot with lid and cook on low setting as manufacturer directs, 8 to 10 hours or until beef is fork-

tender. 3. When beef is tender and ready to serve, strain stew over 3-quart saucepan; return beef and vegetables to slow-cooker pot. Skim and discard fat from liquid in saucepan. Heat liquid in saucepan to boiling over high heat. Meanwhile, in cup, with fork, mix flour with 1/4 cup water until smooth. Gradually whisk flour mixture into liquid; heat to boiling. Boil 1 minute, until gravy thickens slightly, stirring occasionally. Pour gravy over beef and vegetables in pot. Serves 12. • Each serving: About 400 calories, 13g total fat (5g saturated), 91mg cholesterol, 425mg sodium, 12g total carbohydrate, 3g dietary fiber, 39g protein.
