Buying locally in that case supports two things – it provides jobs and income to local people, and a huge corporate tax base for Linton. Let’s break it down. There are approximately 5800 people in the city limits of Linton. For ease of example, I will round down to 5000. Let’s say those 5000 people earn $200 each month in income. If those 5000 people spend their monies for daily needs like groceries, gas, and home goods in Linton, and let’s assume that each person spends $100 per month on these items, that amounts to $1,000,000 per month coming INVESTING IN YOUR COMMUNITY into the community as income for each person, and $500,000 a month By: LuAnn Kohler being spent by those 5000 people on daily needs. The money stays here, except for the ave you ever heard the phrases businesses paying for goods and services, and “Buy Locally” or “Support Local the money is reinvested here. Of that $500,000, Businesses”? Have you read articles about 40% is spent by the employer to pay from local businesses asking the local employees for payroll and business taxes, County to consider them when the County 30% to 40% is paid out in other purchases goods and services? Many people think it is just greed that makes local companies expenses, and 20%-30% is profit (if expenses are down and the price ask to be supported locally. However, one of of fuel and other fluctuating costs the most important things I learned at the remain low). Each year, that amounts numerous economic development classes is to $12 million dollars brought that each time a dollar is spent outside of the community or the county, that otherwise could into the community in income for 5000 people, and $6 million dollars have been spent in the community or county, brought into the local economy and that none of that money is reinvested in the spent in the local economy. community and the wealth of the community Let’s assume, however, that declines. those same 5000 people shop for People have asked me what they can do daily needs in Bloomington or to support Linton and to help with economic Terre Haute.

We should all realize that large merchants like Wal-Mart or fast food franchises need an item, let’s call it a widget, and if I don’t know what store or business might sell that do send a portion of their profits to the main widget, I get out the phone book and call local headquarters, however, they employ hundreds

H

MARCH ‘07 businesses until I find that widget. I always ask them whether they can order it for me, if it isn’t an emergency, and how long it will take to get here. This process saves me time of driving around looking, and it certainly saves me gas. Most of the time, if a business here does not stock the item, they can order it and have it within 48 hours. Most Linton businesses are glad to do this for customers. Let’s assume that a store in Terre Haute is having a sale on pork roast. If you drive to Terre Haute to buy the pork roast, saving you $1 per pound, and the roast is 6 pounds, you’ve saved $6. While you’re there, you also pick up a couple of other items and your total bill is $36. You drove there and back, about an hour and a half on the road, you stopped a bought a drink or a burger while you were out because you or the kids were hungry and you spent an extra $5 at Burger King, by the time you come home, you have spent more than you saved. Even if you don’t factor in BK, you are ahead about $2 to $3 after the price of gas. And, what is your time worth? If you were at work for that hour and a half that you drove to TH, what would you have made for your

time? At least minimum wage, so your time was worth at least $10 for that hour and a half. Then, there’s wear and tear on the vehicle, increased mileage which lowers trade in value on an automobile, and of course, there’s the stress of driving in heavy traffic. Those things don’t have an immediate value that is quantifiable, but they should certainly be factored in to the equation. For that $6 savings, you spent $5 at BK, took $10 of your valuable time that you will

OUTDOOR ADDICTION

WE’VE GOT ONE!

I remember talking with Doc Beasley many years ago and asking him why he was hardly ever sick. Doc seemed to never have a cold and had a positive outlook on life. Doc said one of the most important things he did every morning was take two or three deep breaths, exhaling the stale air out of his lungs. Not only does this cleanse your lungs, but it gives you a warning sign that you might need a bath! A delicious healthy treat I frequently enjoy are red or white seedless grapes. I pick them off the bunch, wash them, dry them on a paper towel, and place them in the freezer in a sealed bag. After approximately two hours, I remove and have myself a frozen treat that is as good as candy. The freezer seems to intensify the sweetness of the fruit. That’s all I have for now. Remember, there is no step too high for a high-stepper!

Linton’s Most Famous, Forgotten Son

S

By: Fred Markle

omeone asked me a few months ago if I had ever heard of Izzy Friedman. They said they thought he was a famous musician from

Linton. After doing some investigation, I found out some shocking information. Born December 25, 1900, Irving Isadore Friedman was born to Leo and Annie Friedman of Linton. Isadore, later nicknamed Izzy, went to school in the 1st ward of Linton. Izzy played

the clarinet and later the saxophone the business in 1963 and passed away in school. He played many Sunday November 21, 1981 in his Hollywood afternoons in the Linton German Band, home. along with locals Fred Bolton and Os Izzy Friedman composed and car Kramer. It is also thought that Izzy directed music on many TV shows such played in the pit band at Dreamland as Dennis The Menace, The Donna Theater located on Vincennes Street. Reed Show, Father Knows Best, and Around 1920, Izzy’s family moved to The Gene Autry Show. A few of his Bicknell, Indiana. At that time, Izzy movie works include: He Walked the had the chance to join Jack O’Grady Night, Million Dollar Weekend, In This and Beau Monde Orchestra. The eleven Corner, Behind Locked Doors, The piece orchestra played regularly at the Amazing Mr. X., Northwest Stampede, Grand Theater in Terre Haute. On many Raw Deal, The Red Stallion, Out Of occasions Izzy and pianist Leo Baxter The Blue, Born to Speed, The Devils on formed a group and played with Red Wheels, Spreadin’ The Jam, Lost HonSkelton. After moving to Chicago, Leo and Izzy played in the house band at the Moulin Rouge Club. While there, Izzy played sessions with Louis Armstrong, Bing Crosby, Isham Jones, and Vincent Lopez. In 1928, Izzy joined the Paul Whiteman Orchestra and moved on to New York City. He began playing with the great Jazz band, Bix Beiderbecke. At this point, Izzy began composing and conducting along with playing with his Hoosier friend, Hoagie Carmichael. In 1934, Hollywood was in the mix of talking pictures. Izzy was offered a job at Warner Brothers Studios as assistant head of the music department. Izzy moved to MGM Studios from 1946-1950, where he was head of the music department and composer of close to fifty movies. In 1950, Izzy formed his own Izzy Friedman, seated, in the Paul Whiteman Orchestra music company, Primrose Music. He supplied music and sound effects to eymoon, The Big Fix, and many more. motion picture studios and television In conclusion, I was amazed studios. Izzy Friedman retired from by all of the jazz enthusiasts all over the world who knew who Izzy Friedman was and where he came from. They all agreed he inspired many jazz musicians, along with helping to mold the sound and music industry. Now when we see an old rerun of Dennis The Menace or Father Knows Best, or you listen to the smooth clarinet work on Up The Lazy River by Hoagie Carmichael, you can say that’s Linton’s own Izzy Friedman. That famous man was born and raised in the 1st Ward of Izzy, left, pictured with Bix Beiderbecke and Paul Linton, Indiana. Whiteman

Marketing Tips For Your Small Business By: Kristy Lewellyn When asked to write an article on marketing local businesses I remembered the struggles of increasing “traffic” in a small community. The word traffic refers to the number of customers who enter your store, call your business, or log onto your website. Proper marketing will increase consumer awareness and peak their interest on the product or service you have to offer. What works for one type of business will not always work for the next due to the different targeted audience. The most sound advice I ever received was “You can’t cut your way to profit.” Once I got that through my thick head I was able to grow my own business and help others do the same. You can’t sit back and just hope for more customers tomorrow. The biggest mistake I see merchants make is giving up after they try some form of advertising that didn’t get the results they wanted. If it doesn’t work, scratch it and move on. Never quit trying. There are endless opportunities for grabbing the attention of potential customers. I’ve had the opportunity of helping with numerous ad campaigns throughout the state and witnessed remarkable results. I’ve watched recruitments increase, name recognition improve, sales jump and website hits reach all time highs. All which help our local business owners and our economy. Here are some simple ideas: *Don’t forget to stir up your current inventory. Regular customers will notice products they’ve never seen before when it’s placed on a different shelf or rack. It’s very effective in retail and doesn’t cost a thing! *When writing an ad for the paper or radio remember to tell the public what’s in it for them. In other words, give them a reason to ACT on this ad. Don’t just tell them about the new

LINTONIAN 7 merchandise you have; tell them why they need it or why it’s better. Use your own voice for radio ads. *Everyone loves a freebie. Direct mail pieces offering an inexpensive gift will get them in the door. Then, make sure they want to return for future visits. A local website owner increased his hits by offering such an item to those who became members. *Don’t forget attention grabbers. We all tend to block out the local scenery. New signage, balloons or streamers can have instant results as it did for a local car dealership. Just remember not to let things get stale. *Be unique. Try something out of the ordinary. A one man plumbing company stuck 900 magnets all over his panel truck with a sign that read “Take One”. The magnet had his phone number on it. Within three months he had to hire 15 new employees to keep up with the demand. *Tradeshows, tradeshows, tradeshows. Rent a booth and get your product or service directly into the hands of the consumers. If tradeshows didn’t bring you increased traffic in the past I’ll bet you didn’t have the right person manning your booth. Like Jody Todd of Southern Indiana Kitchen and Bath says, “You have to sell yourself before you can sell your product”. Southern Indiana Kitchen & Bath is an excellent example of proper marketing. They increased visibility and name recognition

Don’t miss the Spring Thaw Charity Music Festival Saturday, April 7th Linton National Guard Armory www.lintonspringthaw.com

by renting a booth at a Home Show. The phone began to ring following that show and now eleven months later they are still getting calls directly related to their appearance at that show. They did everything right. Their friendly manner made them approachable and their expertise made them standout above the rest. They knew who their targeted audience was. At the show they handed out pot holders with the company name and contact information. They new the product would get saved by the attendee and their phone number would remain readily available to the potential customer. They are still getting phone calls from people saying “I have your pot holder here.” The qualified leads have resulted in numerous remodeling jobs. An excellent return on their investment. If your business has been a bit sluggish you might want to remind yourself of this fact. It’s not that the customer forgets where you are…... it’s that you forget to remind them where you are.

Memories From Dugger Lake T

o start with, whatever happened to that huge thing we called becoming a teenager? You know, the biggest party of your life. Camping, swimming, annual wiener roasts, bicycles and Honda’s; all the cool things people would dream about doing as a kid. Do you notice television wasn’t mentioned once? The things not forgotten were going to spend a week at your aunt and uncle’s house. You called your uncle “uncle”, but he was more like a dad. If he said your hind end needed kicked, he would give it to you. And your aunt was just the best ever. All this brings me around to the story. It was the summer between th 8 grade and freshman year in high school. My friend Ron and I decided we would go camping. I had just talked to another friend of mine, John Wright, and he said Dugger Lake was the coolest of all places to camp. Ron and I decided to make a weekend of it. Ron had a tent left over from Boy Scouts, if you could call it a tent. It had three sides and a flap. It smelled so bad, like something I would imagine

would have been left over from WWII. (This is probably where my big mold allergy began). It stunk so bad we ended up sleeping out on the beach in the sand. We swam from daylight to dark that weekend. Not one drop of alcohol, smoking, or anything like that. And, we had the best fun of our lives. As we drank our full weekend supply of soda pop and ate every last hot dog we had, I told the tallest tale I could think of. This was Friday night. We found ourselves around a big, blazing campfire. The first thing you do when it gets dark, is try to tell the tallest story you’ve ever heard in your life. My nickname was Windy Bill, and I was totally full of it. I had been raised beside Lacey Smith, my grandma’s neighbor who lived for one thing…telling stories that would scare kids so bad they couldn’t sleep. He lived about 300 yards from grandma’s house. I think one of his biggest thrills in life must have been listening to us scream as we ran our way back to grandma’s house each night. As the dew fell, we were so

never get back, spent money on gasoline, and decreased the value of your automobile, not to mention affecting your health. And, you gave your money to Terre Haute and its businesses because every time you purchase something there, the taxes those businesses pay on the goods they sell go to Terre Haute and leave Linton permanently.

scared and tired from swimming all day. We finally found our way to sleep on the beach. There were no worries or problems just sleeping out in the open like that. All the people who camped at Dugger Lake were like family. By Saturday morning, everyone who camped there had officially adopted us. We ate breakfast underneath our neighbor’s awning, lunch was on the beach, and supper was around the campfire. What a great bunch of people. My dad and uncle drove up on Saturday morning to check on us. I think my dad fell in love with the lake as fast as I did. Like the Beverly Hillbillies, the next thing you know old Red had a boat. He also ended up finding an old blue truck camper for our 6-member family to sleep in. This began a new tradition for my family. Funny how one weekend trip with my pal turned into a family tradition that would be around for years to come. Dad became an instant beach slave. His purpose was to gas the boat, to pull all my friends skiing. Mom cooked three meals a day

You may think, like I used to, that there are just some things you can’t find in Linton. I am pleased to say that since I have started this new approach to purchasing everyday things by calling local vendors and businesses first, I have been able to purchase locally at competitive and reasonable prices. When I factored in the actual costs to me each time I shop outside of Linton, it was worth the few pennies more I had to pay to buy it here. In some cases, the price in Linton was actually LESS than the advertised sale price in Terre Haute.

with

Scott Stanton in our 6-foot camper. I think dad ended up teaching half the people in Dugger how to water ski before it was over. Us kids would just sit on the beach and laugh. It felt like we nearly laughed ourselves to death as we watched everyone learn. They would fall in the most peculiar ways, just to get back up and try again. As I look back, we had one outhouse and no electricity. Our family and 20 other families camped every weekend from the first warm day, until it was too cold to stay at the beach. Maybe that’s the reason to this very day our family is still as close as a family can be. And we truly do love each other. I think about some families I hear about where brothers don’t talk to their sisters. Or how boys or girls don’t talk to their parents. Or when they do, it’s mean, nasty, hateful, or spiteful. It makes me wonder if maybe they didn’t spend enough time together growing up. It’s amazing what a little spot of water and a sand beach will do for you.

Obviously, there are some specialty items that you may not be able to get in Linton, but it is well worth your time and savings to call locally first. It is certainly better to spend your dollars locally than to enrich some other community. Even if you have to spend those dollars somewhere else in the county, it is still far better to do that than to spend your hardearned money where those dollars will never be reinvested locally.

FULL CONTACT COOKING WITH TIM SHONK

LINTONIAN 9 burn on items that, if stored just in a freezer bag or plastic container, would be burned in a month or so. This product has already paid for itself in saved food items that we would have thrown away.

This month, we’re going to work with Salmon. The most important thing to remember when selecting Salmon is to This article is for really look closely at the fish in the case the person who uses before buying. Fresh Salmon has hardly any non-stick cooking odor, should look moist, not dry, and ask spray as a furniture the person behind the deli or meat counter polish. This article to gently press their finger into the Salmon. is for the people Fresh fish will not turn to mush when it is who think that the pressed. It will still black charring of stay firm. a small grease fire on the ceiling is a badge of honor. This article is for the person who believes recipes are for people who lack imagination. So, put on your goggles, grab the fire extinguisher and some band aides and let’s get cooking. Late last year, I bought a Seal-a-Meal. At first, I wasn’t sure whether this was a wise purchase, but so often, we buy things, end up not using them quickly enough, and they go to waste. Or worse, we make a great meal with leftovers that go bad before we get to eat them. Just like the package claims, the device really does seal foods and keep them fresher MUCH longer. In fact, perishables like veggies, cheeses, and breads last significantly longer sealed without air pockets. I have stored soups, gravy, pastas, meats, and stews in the bags. The great news is, they do not leak like zipper bags have the potential to do. The Seal-a-Meal bags and plastics are slightly thicker also, so the food is better protected than even using freezer bags. Speaking of the freezer, with the Seal-aMeal bags, there is absolutely no freezer

Always ask to smell it. If the smell of fish is barely detectable, the fish is fresh. If it has a strong odor, it has been there a while. Ask the butcher when they get their fresh fish because most have a weekly schedule. Some stores have specials when the Salmon is between $5.99 to $7.99 per pound. This is when I buy an entire Salmon fillet and have it cut in individual servings about two inches wide. The butcher will cut it for you and package it the way you like. This saves money and, if you use the Seal-a-Meal, the Salmon will keep for three to four months without freezer burning.

Here’s a great Salmon dish I came up with that I call Brutus Salad:

Brutus Salad 1 salmon filet 1 head of Romaine lettuce 1 cup of halved cherry or grape tomatoes 1 cup of diced onions (sweet purple are a good choice) 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese 1 cup of Caesar dressing You can choose to either broil or grill the fish. To prepare, place the Salmon skin-side down on a two-foot piece of aluminum foil that you have drizzled with olive oil or non-stick spray. Make a sealed dome or tent out of the foil to seal in heat while cooking. Place the Salmon on the grill or in the broiler and cook for 20 minutes or until the fish becomes flaky. There is no need to turn the Salmon. Next, tear Romaine lettuce into bite-sized pieces and placed into a large bowl. Add the tomatoes and the onions. Pour the dressing onto the salad and gently mix. To serve this Brutus salad, place about two cups of salad onto each serving plate. Place the cooked salmon in the middle of the lettuce. Finish the plate by covering the entire plate with grated Parmesan or Romano cheese. In the event that you would like to make your own dressing for this meal, there are several great recipes on the internet. One place I always look is www.foodnetwork. com.

Q&A:

Personal Finance By: Chris Wathen

One-size-fits-all answers to personal financial questions will never be appropriate for absolutely everyone in the world because different people have different financial situations, obligations, and goals in life. The question and answer session shown below is meant to introduce some general “rules of thumb” and discuss some basic financial principals to average people, who may be lost on their way toward financial success.

Q: I’ve heard the phrase “pay yourself first,” but what does that really mean?

month. For example, you determine that you live on $2,500 a month and want to continue your current lifestyle in retirement. In that A: Before paying bills and other financial case, using this rule of thumb, you should obligations, set aside an amount each month in accumulate $500,000 ($2,500 / $500 = 5 and $100,000 X 5 = $500,000). The theory an account or investment. The money could be placed in a savings account, a mutual fund, behind this is that a 6% return on the principal or some other investment. This money should amount you have invested is a sustainable rate for a well-diversified portfolio. In some be earmarked for long-term financial goals, years, you may earn more or less, but a 6% not for unexpected emergencies or impulsive average rate of return is a conservative and purchases. Several personal finance sources prudent amount to expect. Also under this suggest setting aside 10% of everything method, you will never theoretically need you earn as a general “rule of thumb” but to spend the principal invested, but only the everyone is different. The most important part of this concept is that you continually set money it produces. This is important because whether you live until you are age 67 or 107, aside whatever amount you determine. For you will not run out of money if only the earnings are spent. This parallels the ageold fable about killing the goose that laid the gold eggs: if you kill the goose, there will be no more gold eggs!

$

Setting aside money in an “emergency fund” Q: How can I ever accumulate such should be the very a large amount of money? It seems impossible. first goal in anyone’s A: Large amounts can be accumulated, but Q: What amount of money should keeping time on your side will make all of be set aside for emergencies? financial planning... the difference. The power of compounding A: Setting aside money in an “emergency

$

fund” should be the very first goal in anyone’s financial planning, not because of the huge returns it will produce but because of the financial stability and subsequent “peace of mind” it will provide. The money should be kept in a highly “liquid” account, meaning you can readily access this money in a very short amount of time. An example of a liquid account would be a savings account or money market fund. Generally, most financial advisors will say that 3 to 6 months worth of money set aside in an emergency account is prudent. What this means is that you could pay all of your required debt payments and living expenses for 3 to 6 months without running out of cash. An emergency fund is meant to be only used for those unexpected situations that happen in life, such as being laid off or fired from your job, contracting a serious illness, sustaining a costly injury, incurring large non-reimbursable expenses, or even making bail and retaining a good attorney.

example, it will not be an effective plan if you only set aside the money for three months and quit – or sporadically set it aside only when you feel like it. Consider checking with your employer about automatically diverting a set amount each payday to a separate savings account. If you feel you cannot set aside any money, you should look for expenses that you can eliminate. Eliminating your morning stop for coffee, reducing the number of times you eat out, changing your phone plan to better fit your actual needs, shopping for better rates on auto and homeowner’s insurance, or adjusting the thermostat in your home by a few degrees can all easily yield savings that you can “pocket” each month.

Q: How much money do I need to accumulate to retire?

A: One quick answer is to accumulate $100,000 in a retirement account for each $500 that you will need to live on each

interest is amazing! To illustrate, consider these three scenarios: It would take 30 years to accumulate $500,000 if a person invested about $498 per month and received a 6% return per year on the money they invested. If the same scenario was put into place just five years later, and the person only had 25 years to invest, it would take setting aside over $721 per month. If the person puts off investing for an additional five years, and there is only 20 years left to invest, it would take slightly over $1,082 per month to accumulate $500,000. The moral of the story is: Do not procrastinate, but start investing today! In future editions of this column, various financial, business, and tax matters for the average person will be examined and discussed in an effort to jumpstart -- and eventually secure -- financial futures by becoming more familiar with something that is so common to everyone but also seems taboo to talk about in our society: MONEY!
