PURIM FUN AT JJC

Town approves 400% parking fee increase BY GARY SIMEONE

Over 85 people had the time of their life on Saturday, March 3 at the Jericho Jewish Center’s Purim Extravaganza. See page 10 for more photos.

Veterans Hall of Fame nominations “The New York State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame was created to honor and recognize outstanding veterans from our state who have distinguished themselves both in military and civilian life,” said Senator Kemp Hannon (R-Nassau). “Their service to our nation deserves our gratitude and admiration.” Senator Hannon is inviting Sixth Senate District residents to nominate a veteran (or veterans) from their community whose service on behalf of our nation designates them for induction into the New York State Veterans Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame is designed to pay tribute to New Yorkers whose gallantry

in the U.S. Armed Forces is complemented by their service to the community. “The winner from my district will be honored at a special ceremony in the State Capital in Albany on Tuesday, May 15th, where each honoree’s photograph and biography will become part of a special on-line exhibit proclaiming the contributions of these exemplary New York Veterans,” said Hannon. Those wishing to nominate a veteran for this special honor should contact Senator Hannon’s Community Office (516-739-1700 or hannon@nysenate.gov) for information. The deadline for submission is April 5.

Last Tuesday night, the Oyster Bay Town Board unanimously voted to increase parking fees for commuter parking lots in the Town. The fee will increase this year to $100 from $20 for a two-year permit for residents in unincorporated areas of the town, and to $120 from $80 per year for residents of unincorporated villages. Senior residents in non-Village areas will still pay a $20 fee for parking. Town Supervisor Joe Saladino said at the meeting that the main reason for the fee increase is so the Town can address the issue of a shortage of parking spaces in the Town. “It’s important to generate the revenue that will lead us towards creating more spots,” said Supervisor Saladino. “The earlier we get a move on this, the quicker we can provide more spots for people.” He said that the $100 fee for the two year permit, would translate into approximately 20 cents per day for daily commuters, to park at Town lots. “This is still a great bargain, considering the cost charged by other municipalities to park in their lots and also to park in nearby private lots.” Town finance director Robert Darienzo said in a town meeting, earlier this month, that the increased fees would allow for an overall property tax cut because it would create a surplus in the Town’s 2018 parking fund. “Moving forward to 2019, we will know about how much money we receive on a year to year basis and we’ll be able to correspondingly lower taxes in the district for all taxpayers,” said Darienzo. The new fee structure will take effect in the coming weeks as renewals are mailed out to residents.

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilwoman Michele Johnson invite residents to take advantage of a new Boating Safety Seminar offered in late March at local Town Community Centers.

The seminar is free for Town residents. Supervisor Saladino stated, “This Boating Safety Seminar offers participants the fundamentals of safe boating operations.

Session 1 will be offered from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Tuesday, March 20 and Monday, March 26. Both classes must be attended in Session 1, which will be held at the Hicksville Community Center. Session 2 will be offered on Saturday, March 24, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Marjorie Post Park Community Center. “History has shown us that too many people take their boats out onto the waters without proper preparation and training to,” said Councilwoman Johnson. “The tips offered at this Boating Safety Seminar can help save lives by ensuring boaters are properly prepared before they leave the dock.” Participants must be a minimum of 10 years old to participate in the seminar. Classes are free, but advanced registration is required. Safe Boating Courses are required for motor boat operators born on or before May 1, 1996. The course is also required for personal watercraft (Jet Ski) operators, who must be a minimum of 14 years of age.

Report potholes on town roads Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino today announced that residents may report potholes, which are common to all municipalities on Long Island at this time of year, to the Department of Highways at (516) 6775757 between the hours of 7AM and 3PM, Monday through Friday. This hotline service is being provided to residents in an effort to fill potholes caused by winter damage in a more efficient manner. Residents may also report pothole issues on Nassau County and the State of New York roadways and highways. The Town will transmit these concerns to the appropriate municipal highway crew. Supervisor Saladino stated, “As the winter ends, all municipal roadways experience the devastating effects of freezing temperatures and salt applications. The Town of Oyster Bay is working quickly to make these repairs and we recognize it is one of our residents’

highest priorities.” At the direction of Supervisor Saladino and the Town Board, the Department of Highways has increased resources so that pothole repairs will be made more quickly. Potholes form as asphalt road surfaces crack under the heat of the day. These cracks allow snow and rain water to seep into the underlying dirt and gravel. This water freezes and expands, and as a result dirt and gravel is pushed out leaving a hole when the ice melts. While winter has resulted in a large number of potholes throughout Long Island, additional potholes are expected to open as the weather warms. The Town of Oyster Bay is shifting its attention to address these potholes immediately. To report a pothole issue, please call (516) 677-5757 between the hours of 7AM and 3PM, Monday through Friday, or email highwayoperations@oysterbayny.gov.

The coming of driverless cars BY BOB MORGAN, JR. Estimates vary widely, but there is a good chance that in the next decade or so, driverless cars will be hitting the road in large numbers, and that these vehicles will dominate driving soon thereafter. This is a subject that could have profound implications for society. While driverless cars have been on the road for some time with a human backup driver available for emergencies, the industry is about to take the next step. In Las Vegas there is a driverless shuttle bus already plying the downtown streets. But more significantly, California motor vehicles officials have given approval for vehicles to be on the highways this spring without a human present so long as there is a remote backup driver monitoring the car and prepared to take over if the need should arise. The remote backup driver must be available to communicate with law enforcement and passengers if there is an accident. Eventually, when the driverless cars are in commercial operation, the plan is no longer to require the remote operators to take over operation, but just help with communication if the need should arise. One key to the progress in driverless vehicles is laser-based improvements in sensor technology so that a driverless vehicle can “see” around corners; of course this is something that today’s cars cannot do. Another key is progress in development of very sophisticated maps for driverless cars, three dimensional representation of the environment around the car, which must be updated continuously and is completely accurate down to the inch of road. These maps require so much data that it can’t practically be sent through a network like the internet and alternative networks must be developed. One obvious benefit of driverless cars is elimination of a great deal of the human equation when it comes to driving. A huge percentage of the 37,000 or so annual traffic fatalities in the United States involves driver error, which can be exacerbated by such aggravating factors as alcohol or substance abuse, fatigue or distracted driving. Just remov-

ing most or all of the risk of this conduct will likely save many lives. Another related benefit is removing from driving elderly or other drivers who may have physical issues that prevent them from optimal performance behind the wheel, while allowing these individuals the freedom and independence that comes with travel by car. None of this is to say that there will not be issues or problems with any changeover to driverless cars. Even if overall these vehicles prove to be much safer than today’s cars, mechanical failures and accident are inevitable, as will be complaints that a human driver would have been better able to cope with a given situation. But the mechanical issues may be dwarfed by social and political questions. Many models of the new driverless age call for cars to be shared rather than owned and used when needed. This is somewhat like the current Uber mode, except that there is no need to pay drivers. Also, because cars stay in motion most of the time, the need for and expense for parking space is minimized. This model may work well, especially in center cities, but I strongly suspect that any proposal that does not permit ownership of individual vehicles, even if they are autonomous, will be extremely controversial, especially in suburban and rural areas. Another issue is privacy. Between ubiquitous surveillance cameras and personal information gathered on the internet, privacy is already under assault, but autonomous cars will certainly not help the situation. The new autonomous cars will gather, and make more easily accessible, much additional personal information, including where the rider travels, behavior patterns and will probably facilitate video and voice recording of riders while in the vehicle. Like the transition from horsedrawn vehicles to cars 100 years ago, the potential move to driverless cars will create problems, even if the overall effect is likely positive. But like it or not, technology marches on.

Purim Extravaganza at the Jericho Jewish Center

Over 85 people had the time of their life on Saturday, March 3 at the Jericho Jewish Center’s Purim Extravaganza. There was entertainment galore, from face painting to balloon art to carnival games to an adult Zumba class. There was also the opportunity to throw pie in Rabbi Herman’s face! Costumed par-

ticipants had a wonderful time going between the different stations while enjoying hamentashen and ice cream sandwiches. Mets memorabilia was raffled off to benefit the Religious School. It was a wonderful holiday celebration for adults and kids alike.

Skiing Kirkwood: It’s All About the Mountain BY ERIC LEIBERMAN, DAVID LEIBERMAN, LAINI MIRANDA & SARAH FALTER

The nearest supermarket is almost an hour away. When the two mountain passes are closed, you’re stuck here. But for Kirkwood devotees, these are comforting perks that distinguish this Tahoe, California, ski resort from other ski resorts out west, even from Vail Resorts other two Best of Tahoe resorts: Heavenly and Northstar. The fact is, at the beginning, middle and end of the day, Kirkwood is all about the mountain. We arrived at Kirkwood - from San Francisco and New York by way of Sacramento airport

- Thursday night. The drive to Kirkwood was easy and beautiful along the dark, very straight followed by very windy, starlit Route 88 -- through the Eldorado National Forest, past Tragedy Spring, and suddenly, on the side of the road, the unassuming and welcoming Kirkwood sign. Pulling in, we drifted by quiet condos on Kirkwood Meadows Drive and felt like something between exclusive guests and trespassers. We soon discovered that this is apropos for Kirkwood. We were warmly welcomed with granola bars, a travel-sized Supergoop sunblock for each of us,

trail maps, a calm “you’ll love it here” vibe, and an explicit “you’ll love it here” assertion. The lovely receptionist shared with us a nearby restaurant recommendation along with some intriguing history, in the vein of the many stories we’d soon hear from Kirkwood staff and family, about the old-timey and purportedly haunted Kirkwood Inn. We checked in to the Mountain Club, right at the base, pulled the car into the garage, took the elevator up to our room, and kicked off our cozy stay with a bottle of Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon and the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies. We eased into the cozy condo by the

warm fireplace and felt our big city pressures melt away. Friday morning greeted us with blue skies, jagged mountain peaks, and a lift that we could practically jump onto from our terrace! We headed to pick up our gear at the demo shop, where we met soonto-be familiar faces Carlos and team. Carlos is a young guy who we felt we would have been friends with in school and who, over the course of the next couple days, we would become friends with as he cheerfully helps us try different pairs of boots and skis. He appears See page D2

Skiing Kirkwood: It’s All About the Mountain Continued from page D1

to be one of many Kirkwood staffers who simply love being at Kirkwood and ski the mountain every chance they can. (Carlos points out that, in fact, he lives steps away from the gondola at the higher-trafficked Heavenly Mountain up in South Lake Tahoe, but he prefers to wake up before dawn and drive to work and ski at Kirkwood.) When Dick Reuter and Bill Klein started Kirkwood in 1972, many viewed it as a fool’s errand. At the time, there was nothing in Kirkwood - resources and infrastructure were both sparse. But Dick and Bill saw the beautiful mountain’s promise and had a vision

for building a ski resort in Kirkwood, so they got to cutting trails and installing lifts. Almost 50 years later, that vision has yielded something spectacular. Kirkwood consistently boasts greater snow accumulation and longer retention of that snow than other Tahoe resorts. The secret is its high base (at 7,800 ft up to a summit at 9,800 ft.), steep terrain, long ridgelines and predominantly Northeast facing mountains. The combination of all these geographical assets and smart trail design (86 trails, a total of 2,300 skiable acres) makes Kirkwood’s conditions and terrain rival those of any resort in North America. What is more, Kirkwood is now part

of Vail Resorts, which also owns nearby Heavenly Mountain and Northstar in the Tahoe area, and is part of Vail’s Epic Pass. It is a credit to the Vail Resorts company that Kirkwood has retained its own character and personality. Kirkwood is great for skiing with groups of friends of family. Unlike most resorts that have a series of peaks and different lifts servicing those peaks from various bases, Kirkwood features a long ridgeline with trails mostly funneling to the same base. As a result, it’s easy to meet up with the rest of a group, even if members of the group have varying abilities and are skiing terrain of differing difficulty. It’s quite hard to get lost at Kirkwood. Kirkwood’s Timber Creek is one of the best training terrains in the region, with great blue and green runs. The larger Mountain Village, on the other hand, will lead you to a mix of blues and blacks, with just a few short green runs on the Snowkirk lift. For beginner or intermediate skiers, sticking to the groomed trails is the way to go. For advanced skiers, there are endless trails to explore and trees to drop into off the long ridgeline. Pay attention to the signage at the base of the lifts, as certain lifts are specified “Experts Only” and will only serve black diamond runs. (Of its 86 trails, 12% are beginner, 30% are intermediate, 38% are advanced, and 20% are rated expert; the longest trail is 2.5 miles; out of the 14 lifts, two are high-speed quads.) For those looking to explore the side and backcountry of Tahoe, Expedition:Kirkwood offers guided excursions, specialty clinics and backcountry awareness training. Kirkwood’s terrain provides access to backcountry opportunities within

resort boundaries straight from the lifts, and EK guides can help even the most advanced skiers and boarders find terrain that thrills and challenges. (To book, 209.258.7360 or email ExpeditionKirkwood@ VailResorts.com) While there wasn’t enough snow during our time at Kirkwood to explore the backcountry, we still found great value in the instruction and knowledge of our all-star, veteran ski instructors Tony and Steve. Tony has been teaching at Kirkwood for 20+ years, and Steve for almost 5 years. (Kirkwood employees seem to have genuine loyalty and pride. We learned that one snowcat operator has been working at the mountain for 40 years.) In a half day, Tony coached a couple of us intermediate skiers how to appropriately shift weight to improve balance on runs of varying difficulty, clean up turns on steeper terrain, and venture down mogul runs for the first time, albeit very slowly and safely. Steve took the more advanced skiers in our group to Sentinel and Palisades bowls and showed us some of the most insane cliff lines we’ve ever seen. As Steve put it, “I don’t care who you are or how long you’ve been skiing, there’s something inbounds on this mountain to make even the most daredevil skiers scared.” After a long day of skiing and riding, we were ready for a hot tub session and a hearty meal. There are several dining options and a few aprés bars at the base and on the mountain, but this is not the place you come for party scenes, pampering or gourmet meals. Again, the draw of Kirkwood is the mountain, not the village or resort amenities. So

while there are a couple of good dining options, the more “Kirkwood” thing to do would just be to buy a bunch of groceries and cook for yourself in the comfort of your condo. That being said, the on-mountain dining is quite good. We dined at The Wall once for lunch and once for dinner (and enjoyed their $3 Tequila Happy Hour special for a great aprés ski another day). Their food is rich and delicious. The plates are pricey,

but most of the portions are huge and share-worthy so we recommend ordering for the table. A great starter is the Spanish Fries of potato wedges with perfectly cooked chorizo bits and cheese. If you’re looking for a big meal, get the cheeseburger. You might not rush straight back up the mountain after, but your tastebuds will be happy. As far as dinner at The Wall is concerned, our favorites are the truffle mac & cheese appetizer, short

ribs braised in red wine, and chicken schnitzel with spaetzle. The menu is constantly rotating, but if you find any of these items on the menu, we highly recommend any of them. The aforementioned Kirkwood Inn, which has been around since 1864, is another dining option near the mountain (5-minute drive). We unfortunately did not get the opportunity to visit, but we heard wonderful things. There are multiple lodging options

when visiting Kirkwood. The three skiin/ski-out options are The Mountain Club, The Lodge at Kirkwood, and Snowcrest Lodge. We stayed in a 2-bedroom suite at the Mountain Club and couldn’t have asked for more. Our living room looked out onto three chairlifts and each room had sweeping views of the mountain. Beds were very comfortable and the cozy living room See page D5

On St. Patrick’s Day, Everyone Is Irish! BY CLAIRE LYNCH St. Patrick’s Day may be just another day in Dublin, Ireland, but on this side of the Atlantic Ocean it is, for many people, a big holiday. There are, after all, an estimated 34.5 million Americans who list their heritage as either primarily or partially Irish, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. That number is, incidentally, seven times larger than the population of Ireland itself (4.68 million). Irish is the second-most common ancestry among Americans, falling just behind German. (washingtonpost.com, 3/17/13) New York City and Boston have the greatest number of Irish-American residents. Chicago also has got a good number of Irish Americans. Starting on March 1, I see a lot of Irish Americans wearing green – green sweaters, green blazers, coats, etc. – and mention the name “St. Patrick” in March or at any other time of the year and most Americans are ready for a plate filled with corned beef, cabbage, boiled potatoes, carrots and more. A corned beef sandwich makes a great lunch. A bit of Irish soda bread on the side – or for dessert – always hits the spot. Years ago, when I was a student in elementary school in Rockville Centre, I remember some of my teachers engaging in a friendly competition to see who could be the first to wear a sprig of fresh shamrocks on their blouse or lapel. They also liked to compete to see who would be the first person to have a slice of Irish soda bread still warm from the oven. If we didn’t happen to have any real shamrocks to wear on St. Patrick’s Day, we were happy enough to sport some lapel pins that said, “Happy St. Patrick’s Day,” “Luck of the Irish” and “Proud to Be Irish.” Over the years I’ve also worn metal lapel pins in the shape of a leprechaun, in the shape of a shamrock with the Irish flag across it (green, white and orange stripes), a harp and shamrock lapel pin, a pot of gold and rainbow lapel pin, a Celtic cross lapel pin and more. It’s fun dressing in green on St. Patrick’s Day and rummaging around

for a set of green beads to adorn my outfit. I was talking with my friend, Kelly, recently about all of the fun people have on the holiday. She recalled a time about 12 years ago when her son, Kyle, was 14 and dyed his hair green in honor of St. Patrick. A friend helped him. First they bleached his brown hair. Then they got a store bought box of hair dye hair and dyed it green. After drying his hair and styling it, Kyle kind of liked the look. Amazingly enough Kyle went to school that way wearing blue jeans and a Kelly green sweat shirt. St. Patrick’s Day was on a Friday that year so he celebrated after school, too. Here are some interesting facts about St. Patrick: The color blue for years was associated with St. Patrick but it was changed to green since Ireland is called the “Emerald Isle” and there is a green stripe in the Irish flag. The shamrock is a popular Irish symbol, but it is not the symbol of Ireland. As early as the medieval period, the harp had represented the nation. King Henry VIII used the harp on coins as early as 1534. Later, the harp was used on Irish flags and Irish coats of arms. Starting in 1642 the harp appeared on flags during rebellions against English rule. When Ireland became an independent country in 1921, it adopted the harp as the national symbol. St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland and St. Brigid is the female patron saint. She is also the patron of dairymaids, cattle, midwives, Irish nuns and newborn babies. St. Patrick, the Apostle of Ireland, was born in the year 387 AD in Britain. His birth name was Maewyn Succat. His father was a deacon and his grandfather was a priest, but he wasn’t very religious growing up. As he wrote in his “Confession,” that changed when he was about 16 years old. Patrick was attacked and kidnapped by Irish pirates who had broken into his family’s villa. He was sold into slavery in Ireland. Patrick credited the experience with renewing his religious faith. He wrote, “After I arrived in Ireland,

I tended sheep every day, and I prayed frequently during the day.” Six years passed by before Patrick said he heard a voice telling him to return home. He escaped and walked 200 miles to a port, where he found a ship preparing to leave for England. “I said I needed to set sail with them, but the captain was not at all pleased,” he wrote. “He replied unpleasantly and angrily: ‘Don’t you dare try to come with us.’” Later on, after thinking about it for a while, the captain apparently had a change of heart. “I began to pray while I was going; and before I even finished the prayer, I heard one of them shout aloud at me: ‘Come quickly - those men are calling you!’ I turned back right away, and they began to say to me: ‘Come - we’ll trust you. Prove you’re our friend in any way you wish.’” (businessinsider.com) Eventually Patrick made it back home, became a cleric in continental Europe and then headed back to Ireland as a missionary. He preached the Gospel and he took the name “Patricius” or what we call “Patrick.” The name “Patrick” means the “father of his people.” He arrived in Slane, Ireland, on March 25, 433, and worked as a missionary among the Celtic pagans mostly in the northern and western parts of Ireland where Christianity had never been preached. Ireland has produced some of the greatest authors in literature throughout the 19th century and 20th century as well as some incredible modern Irish authors. Bram Stoker, whose actual first name was Abraham, wrote “Dracula,” a perfect Halloween story. “Dracula,” first published in 1897, is among the best-selling books of all time and has influenced over 1,000 vampire-based films throughout the world. The book’s Irish connection is undeniable. In Gaelic, the phrase “Droch Ola” (sounds like “Dracula”) means bad blood. (irishcentral.com) Stoker spent years researching mythical stories of vampires before writing the novel. The original, 541page manuscript was found in a barn

in northwestern Pennsylvania during the 1980s after it was believed to be lost. James Joyce wrote “Ulysses.” The novel took him seven years to write and is noted for its stream of consciousness technique. Joyce is also famous for “A Portrait of an Artist as a Young Man” which was published in New York in 1916. Here’s the back story to that: In 1913 the Irish poet W. B. Yeats recommended Joyce’s work to the American poet Ezra Pound, who was compiling an anthology of verse. Pound wrote to Joyce, and in 1914 Joyce submitted the first chapter of the unfinished “Portrait” to Pound, who was so taken with it that he pressed to have the work serialized in the London literary magazine “The Egoist.” Joyce hurried to complete the novel and it appeared in “The Egoist” in 25 installments from February 2, 1914, to September 1, 1915. There was difficulty finding a British publisher for the finished novel, so Pound arranged for its publication by an American publishing house, B. W. Huebsch, which issued it on December 29, 1916. Who can ever forget Jonathan Swift’s “Gulliver’s Travels,” the story for which he is best known for, tells the adventure story of a shipwrecked man who encounters different species of people every place he goes to. “Gulliver’s Travels” was published in 1726. Oscar Wilde wrote “The Picture of Dorian Gray” and “The Importance of Being Earnest,” a play, as well as several other books, plays and poems. A more modern Irish writer is Anne Enright, who was born 1962 and won the 2007 Man Booker Prize for “The Gathering.” She is famous for her novels, short stories, essay collections about family relationships and more. Needless to say, music is also big in Ireland. The Irish Tenors sing “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling” which is a lighthearted song in tribute to Ireland. Its lyrics were written by Chauncey Olcott and George Graff, Jr. The song has been performed by many different artists. The Chorus lyrSee page D6

Inspector General’s Report Causes Confusion for Widows BY TOM MARGENAU

The inspector general for the Social Security Administration recently released a report that was well-intentioned, but that has sewn confusion among millions of women collecting Social Security widow’s benefits. What the report said was that a small percentage of widows were not informed by SSA clerks of a provision that could have resulted in them getting higher Social Security benefits in the long run. But if my emails are any indication, many women thought the report said that all widows were getting shortchanged by the government. This is just not true. The IG’s report was referring to a procedure I’ve discussed hundreds of times in this column: the restricted application rule. This so-called “maximizing strategy” has been all the rage for the past several years among retiring baby boomers. It allows people who are full retirement age to file for spousal benefits on a husband’s or wife’s Social Security account and then delay starting their own retirement benefits until age 70, at which point they would get a 32 percent credit added to their Social Security checks. As I’ve also reported many times in this column, that procedure grew out of a loophole in an unrelated Social Security law. It makes a mockery of a well-established legal tenet that says you should not be able to get benefits on a spouse’s record unless you were financially dependent on that spouse. Yet most folks jumping through that loophole have been well-heeled retirees. That’s why Congress has been gradually closing the loophole. It finally gets sealed up in January 2020, so only retirees turning 66 before January 2020 can employ that unintended maximizing strategy. But it is an entirely different story when it comes to widows and widowers. (To keep things simple and to avoid a lot of awkward “he/she” and “him/ her” pronouns, I will be referring only to women getting widow’s benefits. And that’s OK because 95 percent of surviving spousal benefits are paid to women.) Widows have always been allowed to use this restricted application rule. And the previously mentioned January 2020 deadline refers only to retirees. It does NOT apply to widows. And there is also another major difference between the strategy as it applies to retirees versus widows. As I said above, a retiree can only use the restricted application rule if he or she waits until age 66 to apply for Social Security. But a widow can employ the rule as early as age 60 -- the earliest she is usually eligible for widow’s benefits. In a nutshell, this rule gives widows options that no other Social Security beneficiary has. Let’s look at some examples to explain what I am

talking about. Mary became a widow at age 58. When she turns 60 (assuming she has retired by then), she will have the option of taking reduced widow’s benefits on her deceased husband’s record. At that age, she would get about 70 percent of his basic Social Security benefit. Then she could save her own retirement benefit until 66, when she could switch to 100 percent of her own rate, or even wait until age 70, when she would get 132 percent. If Mary is still working full time, then she might have to wait until age 66 to start her widow’s benefits (when the earning penalty that applies to people who take benefits before full retirement age no longer applies). At that age, she would get 100 percent of her husband’s benefit. And then at age 70, she could switch to 132 percent of her own retirement rate. Of course, all of this assumes Mary has a higher retirement benefit to switch to later in life. Because of economic and social circumstances, many women earned less money than their husbands did -- meaning they have much smaller Social Security benefits that that of their husbands. So in those cases, there simply is no higher retirement benefit to switch to later on. To explain that, let’s go back to Mary. Let’s say Mary’s full retirement age benefit is $1,200. And then let’s say her full widow’s benefit rate is $2,200. And finally, let’s assume Mary retires at age 62. Here are her options. She could simply choose to take reduced widow’s benefits. At age 62, that’s an 82.5 percent rate, or $1,815 per month. There would be nothing to switch to later on because 100 percent, or even 132 percent of her own benefit will be less than what she is due on her husband’s record. But Mary’s other option would be to take reduced retirement benefits at 62. She’d be due 80 percent of her full retirement rate, or $960. If she could afford to live on that for several years, then at age 66, she could switch to 100 percent widow’s benefit, or $2,200. By the way, that 32 percent age 70 bonus that applies to retirement benefits does NOT apply to widow’s benefits. In other words, there would not be any advantage to Mary delaying her widow’s benefits until age 70. The highest rate she can get is the 100 percent rate at age 66. So now let me get back to the inspector general’s report. That report was highlighting scenarios in which a woman had worked and earned enough money for a substantial retirement benefit on her own record -- one in which she could employ the restricted application strategy of saving her own benefits -- usually until age 70. And again, the report criticized SSA saying that some women in this situation were not made aware of the existence of the ben-

efit-switching rule. But the report did not say that all widows were being cheated out of benefits. And it has nothing to do with the vast majority of women, especially as most women do not become widows until later in life -- in their 70s or 80s and beyond -- long after their Social Security benefits have started. And in

these scenarios, they have no options to consider. They simply switch to widow’s benefits after their husbands die -- assuming their husbands were getting higher Social Security benefits.

Dumb Things to Do With a Tax Refund BY MARY HUNT

Tax time: that interesting time of year when ordinarily smart people begin to make really dumb financial decisions. Isn’t it amazing to watch what a little extra cash (well, for some, maybe a lot of extra cash) lining the pockets can do? Sixty-two percent of taxpayers expect that they’ll receive some sort of refund on their 2017 tax return. While there are many dumb ways to spend it, here are my top five: ACT LIKE IT’S FREE MONEY The operative word in the term “tax refund” is “refund”! Common synonyms for refund are “repayment,” “reimbursement” and “return of overpayment.” This means that tax refunds are not free money. The government is not giving you a bonus every year just to thank you for being such a swell person. This is money that you’ve allowed it to borrow from you all year long. And now, unlike most of your friends or family members, it is actually paying you back. Smart Move: If you routinely get a big tax refund, change your withholding. Your goal is to neither owe nor be owed at the end of the year. If you can come within $100 of that goal, you’re good. PAY DOWN DEBT Before you do that -- noble as it may be -- you need an emergency fund. If you are not able to fund your own future emergencies, you’ll never get out of debt because you will keep running back to the credit cards for a bailout. Smart Move: Keep making your regular debt payments, and use the refund to establish your Contingency Fund. Then, keep adding to it until you reach your goal (enough to live for at least three months without a paycheck, or $10,000). Then you’ll be in a beautiful position to rapidly pay down your debt as you have been, and still keep going when life happens. MAKE A DOWN PAYMENT I’m talking about a down payment on a car, television, furniture or any other thing that will turn into new monthly payments, also known as debt. The burning sensation and feeling of prosperity strong-arms people into putting money down on a new car, boat, Disney vacation or what have you. Here’s the thing to remember: After that down payment, you’re still responsible for the pesky monthly payments that stick around much longer. Even though you’re feeling good right now, remember that April 15 comes but once a year. The joy of getting back your tax overpayment can

quickly turn into a nightmare if you’re not careful. Smart Move: Use the refund to abolish your bills, not create new ones. Never create ongoing debt with onetime funds. INDULGE IN A LITTLE RETAIL THERAPY There’s no doubt that shopping for new clothes, shoes, electronics or other cool stuff is a great anti-depressant, but it’s dumb. Once that shopper’s high wears off, you’ll be right back where you were -- broke but with more stuff. Smart Move: Go for a brisk walk. Spend time with your kids, friends and family doing things that won’t cost money. Most every city has a big museum or zoo that’s free on one day each month. Or go on a picnic; take a bike ride; explore your own city by Googling the name of your city plus the word “tourist.” Go to Free-Attractions.com to find all kinds of things to do for free. You’ll be amazed. And you’ll feel a lot better, too. CRAM IT UNDER THE MATTRESS It’s an idea but not a very good one. Money under the mattress is not earning any interest, and it’s vulnerable to theft and fire. But most of all, it’s vulnerable to you in a weak moment. Smart Move: Open an online savings account on SmartyPig.com or Ally.com. Deposit your tax refund, and then sit back and know it’s safe from you while growing at the same time. If you do lose your job or have a true financial emergency, you’ll be plenty glad you got smart with this year’s tax refund.

On St. Patrick’s Day, Everyone Is Irish! C ontinued from page D3 ics are: “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, sure ‘tis like a morn in spring./ In the lilt of Irish laughter, you can hear the angels sing./ When Irish hearts are happy, all the world seems bright and gay,/ And When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, sure, they steal your heart away.” It’s a real crowd pleaser. Here’s an Irish Blessing to protect you: “Lucky stars above you Sunshine on your way Many friends to love you Joy in work and play Laughter to outweigh each care In your heart a song And gladness waiting everywhere All your whole life long!” Happy St. Patrick’s Day to all!!

The Leprechaun Box Trap/Trick March is an active month for people who are determined to catch leprechauns. I read about a method on redtri.com that just might work. It’s a simple box trap. The leprechaun is usually just under a foot high, although size varies depending on age (they shrink as they get older) and origin. Get a small box like a shoebox. A plain box works fine but if you want to increase your odds of getting a leprechaun, paint the box green. They like green. Decorate it with anything that gives it that special glitz: glitter, coins, gemstones or colorful swirls. Find a stick or pencil to prop the box up. You can even use a piece of cardboard, cleverly disguised as a friendly sign. Now, place the “bait” on a plate underneath the lid. No string is needed. Once the leprechaun takes his first bite of your delicious food, he’ll dance with joy. This dance almost always leads to kicking the stick over. At that point, he is trapped. Here’s a hint: Don’t bother waiting up for the leprechaun. They never appear under a watchful eye. Wait at least three hours before checking your trap, but if you can, wait a full night. Parents, you can leave a small note or coin in place of the treat that the leprechaun took. If your trap is empty, better luck next year. If you caught your leprechaun, you’ll need to transfer

it from the trap into your home. Use a soft pillowcase, and scoop up the entire box including (hopefully) the leprechaun. Remember, your goal here is to get him to reveal the location of his gold, not bring harm to him. Be firm but kind, be persistent. Once you have him inside, lock your doors and close your windows. Leprechauns are master escape artists. Be ready to barter. They are very clever and can trick you out of just about anything, but you will need to offer something in exchange for the gold (i.e., his freedom). Don’t believe him when he tells you it’s “at the end of the rainbow.” They like silky fabrics, velvet and shiny things. Be sure you have enough food: They can eat an incredible amount of food so be ready to lay out a feast or at the very least, a decent tea party. If you can actually get them to tell you where the gold is, you truly have the luck of the Irish! Note: While it was once true that a leprechaun could only be found in Ireland, there are generations of leprechauns that have naturalized in the woods, parks and gardens across America. Rumors of how leprechauns came to the U.S. include stowing away in luggage, sliding across rainbows - totally unfounded - and the most plausible: paid passage. They are, after all, in possession of vast amounts of gold.

Skiing Kirkwood: Continued from page D3 felt like we were in our own home. Other highlights of the facilities worth taking advantage of after a long day of skiing included an outdoor hot tub, exercise room, sauna, and steam room all offer a perfect finish to a long day on the slopes. All in all, we were blown away by Kirkwood’s simplicity and purity. We live in a fast-paced world where overstimulation has become the norm, and ski resorts are increasingly catering to that expectation by doubling down on their resort activities and luxury offerings. But Kirkwood has stayed true to its roots. It is off the beaten path and promotes a simpler lifestyle based around the ideals of world-class skiing, enjoying time with loved ones and connecting with nature. It also bears noting that skiing Kirkwood is less pricey than most major ski resorts. So pick up some groceries on your way in and relish in the time away from the noise and action. This is not one of those getaways where you’ll need a vacation from your vacation. This is it. At the end of the day, it’s all about the mountain at Kirkwood. And we hope that never changes. Kirkwood is located about 45 minutes

south of Lake Tahoe, The closest airport is Reno-Tahoe International Airport, about 1 ½ hour drive away. Jetblue offers nonstop flights from JFK. Amidst the largest snowpack in 22 years, the Best of Tahoe Resorts, a subsidiary of Vail Resorts, announced an extended ski seasons for Heavenly Mountain Resort daily through April 23, and the weekend of April 28 – 30; Northstar California through April 23. Kirkwood continues with spring skiing through April 16.

Telluride has been rated the “#1 Ski Resort in North America” five of the last six years by readers of  Condé Nast Traveler. Vail Resorts’ 2018-19 season passes go on sale in early March at www.epicpass.com.  “We’re thrilled to welcome Telluride Ski Resort on the Epic Pass for the 201819 winter season, offering skiers and snowboarders even greater value and variety with the most popular season pass in the mountain resort industry. Telluride is on the bucket list of skiers and snowboarders around the world and we’re delighted to offer this iconic mountain resort as part of the Epic Pass experience,” said Kirsten Lynch, chief marketing officer of Vail Resorts. “Telluride is excited to join the Epic Pass and a collection of worldclass mountain resorts that skiers and snowboarders around the world come back to time and again.

The breathtaking scenery is undeniably some of the most beautiful in the Rockies. Living up to its reputation for legendary terrain, Telluride has something for everyone. The Plunge, Revelation Bowl and Gold Hill offer plenty of steeps for experts. See Forever and Prospect Bowl provide ideal terrain for intermediates and the wide open, gentle slopes of The Sunshine Express and The Meadows start beginners off right while enjoying the endless scenery of the San Juans.

What if my camper gets homesick? Homesickness is not unusual, especially for new campers. All our staff are specially trained in what to do when a camper gets homesick and how to help your child adjust to camp life. If campers cannot adjust to camp life, we will give you a call. If not, you can assume your camper is having a great time! Can my child bring his/her cell phone? We are a screen-free camp here at DPF 4-H, and thus do not allow campers to bring their phones or any electronics. While this may be a little scary for some kids (and parents!) this is a chance for your camper to connect with nature and new friends, not the Internet. How can I communicate with my camper? Try our BunkNote system! Parents can send emails to their campers, which the camp office will print out and deliver to your child. However, since we are a screen free camp, this system is only one-way. The best way for your camper to contact you is the postal system. Do you offer any transportation? Yes! Our bus runs to and from Hicksville to Riverhead to transport campers. You can register your camper for the bus when you sign up for camp.

What do I need to do to get my camper Camp ready? Besides registering and paying for your child’s encampment, there are several medical forms that must be filled out before your child can attend camp. Forms can be found on our website. How does Camp handle Health and Wellness? All campers are required to have a physical examination and health history forms

completed prior to their stay at camp. We have our camp nurse on property at all times who is ready to help your camper with their medicine or aid with any injuries that may occur. What should my child take to Camp? We have a list of everything your should bring to camp on our website and in the Parent-Camper Handbook. All campers need bedding, personal hygiene products and clothing to last them through their stay.

Laundry is available for any campers staying for two or more weeks. What if my child doesn’t like the food? The camp can accommodate campers with special food needs. If your camper does not like the main course being offered, we always provide secondary options in our salad bar that change daily, as well as vegetarian and vegan options. For more information, visit us on our website: ccenassau.org/dpf4hcamp Jericho Office (Main Winter Office) CCE Nassau County, 5 Old Jericho Turnpike Jericho, NY 11753 Phone: 516-433-7970, Ext.11 Fax: 516-433-7971 Cornell Cooperative Extension is an employer and educator recognized for valuing AA/ EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities and provides equal program and employment opportunities. This camp is permitted to operate by the Suffolk County Department of Health and is inspected twice yearly. Copies of the inspection are available in the office or by contacting the Department of Health at 631-852-5999.

Want your child to try sleep-away camp while staying close to home?
