Decorate Safely This Holiday Season

The holiday season is a busy time of year, but take care to not let it become a dangerous time. Guests, cooking, space heating, and decorations can add up to a dangerous situation in a home. Safe Electricity encourages you to protect your loved ones by decorating safely this season. “In the chaos of holiday celebrations, it is easy to forget safety,” says Molly Hall, executive director of the Safe Electricity program. “Before the celebrations begin, take time to decorate safely.” In the two months around the holidays approximately 14,000 people end up at hospitals for injuries related to holiday decorating, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Safe Electricity has tips to help you and your guests avoid becoming part of this statistic: • All electronic decorations and lights should be certified by a laboratory like UL, ETL, or CSA.

• Never throw holiday lights on trees near power poles. • If you are using a ladder, stay 10 feet from overhead power lines at all times, in all directions. • Never string more than three strands of lights together, unless packaging specifically says it is safe to do so. Safe Electricity wishes everyone a safe and happy holiday season. For more information on staying safe and protecting your loved ones, visit SafeElectricity.org. Safe Electricity is the award-winning program of the Energy Education Council, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to promoting electrical safety and that also provides information on energy efficiency and renewable resources. Energy Education Council members include more than 400 utilities in 30 states as well as energy-related organizations and educators.

• I n s p e c t c o r d s a n d e l e c t r i c a l equipment before using them. Cords should not be frayed, cracked, or brittle. • Turn off or unplug lights before going to sleep. Power strips and timers can help you do this. • Do not overload extension cords or outlets. Electric overloads can cause shocks and start fires. • Never tack or nail through a strand of lights. Do not place cords under rugs or in high traffic areas. • Outdoor decorations and lights should be plugged into outlets equipped with ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs). GFCIs detect and prevent dangerous electrical situations where a shock may occur. GFCI protection is very important outdoors, where weather conditions can create shock hazards. • Only use decorations and lights that are rated for outdoor use outside.

Illinois Law Now!

Question: How can I be sure that I am complying with all the driving laws with regards to texting and phoning? Answer: In Illinois, there are numerous laws that restrict the use of cell phones while driving. Recently, the Governor signed three new laws that prohibit specific types of phone use while driving. One law bans most hand-held phone use within 500 feet of emergency scenes. Two other acts, which will go into effect January 1, 2013, contain similar bans on all roads for commercial drivers and for all drivers in construction and maintenance speed zones. Information about traffic laws can be found at www.cyberdriveillinois.com. Question: Is there a law which requires the purchaser of a home to do a radon test? Answer: No, but many home buyers are concerned and now have a radon test conducted at the same time they do their home inspection. If the radon test exceeds normal levels, the buyer will usually require that radon remediation be done and that a second test be conducted before the closing. Question: I have a serious issue with my latest credit report and am afraid that unless it is resolved, I will be denied credit altogether or be forced to pay higher interest rates. What are my options? Answer: It’s good that you are aware of your credit history. Approximately 96 percent of free reports are unclaimed, according to some sources. If you disagree with some of the information it contains, you should request a correction in writing. If that action is unsuccessful, you may want to hire an attorney. A letter from an attorney can often get results. For more information about Illinois law, visit www. illinoislawyerfinder.com. If you have a legal question, send it to illinoislawcolumn@isba.org.

Holiday Season at Center for Performing Arts

Two beloved holiday classics are coming to Governors State University Center for Performing Arts. “A Christmas Carol” will be presented Saturday, December 5, at 11 a.m. On Saturday, December 8, “The Nutcracker,” performed by Salt Creek Ballet, returns to GSU Center for two shows, at 1 and 5 p.m. Both “A Christmas Carol” and “The Nutcracker” are ideal family entertainment, close to home with affordable prices and free parking. GSU Center is committed to presenting the best in live entertainment to local audiences, and that is especially true during the holiday season. The Center for Performing Arts is located on Governors State University’s main campus in University Park. To purchase tickets for either show, or for further information, contact the GSU Center box office at www.centertickets.net or (708) 2352222. “A Christmas Carol,” presented by Theatreworks USA, is a musical retelling of Charles Dickens’ unforgettable story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a mean-spirited miser who believes the holiday season can be summed up in one word – “humbug.” After being visited by three Christmas ghosts, Scrooge is a changed man and vows to dedicate his life to the welfare of others. “A Christmas Carol” captures both the humorous and touching moments of Dickens’ tale with witty dialogue and fresh new songs. Tickets for “A Christmas Carol” are $12 to $17. The show is approximately one hour in length. Prior to the performance, renowned storyteller Lynne Clayton will share holiday tales Easley Painting Drywall & Taping, wallpaper removal, t u b s u r ro u n d s, f i x t u re s replaced, entry, storm & garage doors, wind damage, siding & soffits, quality service & materials, senior discounts. 708-758-3241

and tunes to complement “A Christmas Carol.” Her stories and songs will begin at 10 a.m. Salt Creek Ballet’s “The Nutcracker” has been a holiday tradition at GSU Center since 1998. The whimsical tale of young Clara and her magical journey is a wonderful production for the entire family. Along the way, Clara encounters waltzing flowers, giant mice, and the Sugar Plum Fairy, all set to Tchaikovsky’s enchanting score. The Chicago Sun-Times calls the production “…a solid, professional ‘Nutcracker’,” and The Chicago Tribune calls it “a plum performance.” This year’s production of “The Nutcracker” features a cast of 100 dancers, including local children and young adults ages 8 to 17 from the school of the Salt Creek Ballet. Featured dancers for “The Nutcracker” at GSU Center are Maria Mosina and Alexei Tyukov. Mosina was born in Moscow

First Step Preschool on Target to Open in Spring of 2013 In just a month and a half, First Step Preschool of Lynwood, located at the southwest corner of Torrence Avenue and Glenwood-Lansing Road in Lynwood, Illinois, is now under roof and on target to begin welcoming children in the spring of 2013. First Step will be able to accommodate children from six months to eight years of age. Specifically, it will provide childcare services for ages six months to 36 months; preschool for children ages three and four; all day kindergarten for children age five (on or before September 1); and before and after school programs for children ages six through eight. Additionally, summer camp will offer children not only fitness programs, crafts, outdoor play and field trips, but also an hour of instruction once a day to keep the children’s minds alert and ready to return to school in the fall. The owner, Marilyn Seaton, is no stranger to the world of childcare. Currently the owner of First Step Preschool, located in South Holland, Illinois, Marilyn has run successful Home for rent: So.

preschool programs for the past 15 years. First Step in South Holland has been a viable asset to the community in its ability to serve several nearby communities such as Dolton, Harvey, Lansing, Thornton, and Riverdale. Prior to First Step, Marilyn was a teacher with the Chicago Public School System for 33 years. Her last 11 years at CPS was spent teaching First Grade, Kindergarten, Pre-K, and Head Start. When asked what words of wisdom she passes on to her school children, she stated that she tells them to “be the best you can be and there is no such word as can’t.” The children and families of Lynwood will be the latest individuals to benefit from her exceptional childcare programs and 37 years of experience. First Step of Lynwood will employ degreed teachers and offer specialized programs, such as Introduction to Computers. Space is limited and filling quickly, so call soon to guarantee a seat. Registration forms and additional information can be obtained by contacting Marilyn at 708-474-5100.

What can you do if your modification fails? arthur v. veal iv So after all the expert advice I have given you from this article, you have finally done the unthinkable and contacted your bank about getting a loan modification. After some struggle, headache, and jumping thru a few hoops, they have finally agreed to modify your loan. You were ecstatic. But now it has been six months and you have still not gotten a final answer to your modification. Or you had another setback which caused you to fall out of the modification plan that your bank worked out for you. So what are your options now? If you are in this situation then you may really feel confused. If you have read recent news reports than you have seen that about 40% of the people that have gotten into a modification plan under the President Obama modification plan have fallen out of the plan. So that leaves a lot of people facing hard decisions. Here are a few options for you. First option you have is to go back to the bank and explain why you had a problem with your modification and what you are able to do in order to fix your new problem. Banks at this point in the game are 2003 Chevrolet Astro Cargo Van Stk#P2633A $5,992. Napleton River Oaks Lincoln 708-891-5400

open to listening to you and the fact that you already had a modification shows that you are interested in trying to keep your house. In some cases they will put you on a new modification plan and in other cases they will reinstate your old modification. Your second option is to consider selling or short selling the house. I always tell people to consider this option when their situation does not seem like it can get any better any time soon. Such as a long-term layoff at work or a death in the family which results in a lower overall income. Many families are concerned about selling a home because they would prefer not to rent and feel they will not be able to buy. My answer to that would be to consider a bridge between the two and to take a look at renting to own. Programs like ours allow you to rent while still keeping many of the benefits you receive with ownership. Until next week, Good luck and God Bless and remember… If you want to sell your house within 7 days regardless of if you have equity… check out our informative website at www.sellonterms.com for more information. 2003 Ford Explorer Stk#P2646A $5,995.

Hmmm - no Powerball winner...

What a surprise! Only the government can take your money and not give you anything in return. If a small (or big) business tried that scam the IRS, CIA, FBI, EPA, OSHA, ATF and a few more agencies would shut you down in a minute. But its legal when our government does it.

note to everyone...

Don’t get all crazy about the Bears being in first place because Minnesota can’t tackle their grandmothers and Green Bay lost one game Sunday.

Say I saw it in The Shopper

From The Publisher

www.myshopper.biz/columnists/

Life has a way of flying by arlo kallemeyn (Author anonymous thanks to Kelly G. for posting this on her Facebook page) After 21 years of marriage, my wife told me to take another woman out to dinner and a movie. She said, “I love you, but I know this other woman loves you and would love to spend some time with you.” The other woman that my wife wanted me to visit was my Mother, who has been a widow for 19 years, but the demands of my work and three children made visiting difficult. That night I invited her to go out for dinner and a movie. “What’s wrong, are you well?” she asked. My mother is the type of woman who suspects that a late night call or a surprise invitation is a sign of bad news. “I thought that it would be pleasant to spend some time with you,” I responded. “Just the two of us.” She thought about it for a moment, and then said, “I would like that very much.” That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up I was a bit nervous. When I arrived at her house, I noticed that she, too, seemed to be nervous about our date. She waited in the door with her coat on. She had curled her hair and was wearing the dress that she had worn to celebrate her last wedding anniversary. She smiled from a face that was as radiant as an angel’s. “I told my friends that I was going to go out with my son, and they were impressed,” she said, as she got into the car.

“They can’t wait to hear about our meeting.” We went to a restaurant that, although not elegant, was very nice and cozy. My mother took my arm as if she were the First Lady. After we sat down, I had to read the menu. Her eyes could only read large print. Half way through the entries, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting there staring at me. A nostalgic smile was on her lips. “It was I who used to have to read the menu when you were small,” she said. “Then it’s time that you relax and let me return the favor,” I responded. During the dinner, we had an agreeable conversation – nothing extraordinary but catching up on recent events of each other’s life. We talked so much that we missed the movie. As we arrived at her house later, she said, “I’ll go out with you again, but only if you let me invite you.” I agreed. “How was your dinner date?” asked my wife when I got home. “Very nice - much more so than I could have imagined,” I answered. At that mom ent, I understood the importance of saying in time: “I LOVE YOU” and to give our loved ones the time that they deserve. Nothing in life is more important than your family. Give them the time they deserve, because these things cannot be put off till “some other time.” Arlo Kallemeyn Shopper Publisher and big fan of appreciating families.

Tips For Safe Holiday Shopping The holiday season is in full swing and many of us are going online or out to local stores and malls to do holiday shopping. Unfortunately, thieves and pickpockets will be looking for easy targets. By taking a few precautions you can make yourself less likely to become the victim of a holiday theft. Keep these things in mind when heading out to the mall: • Make note of where you park your car so you will be able to quickly return to it when leaving. If shopping in the evening, try to park under or near a light. When returning to your car, always have your keys out and ready to use. • If you are carrying a purse, be sure it is closed and that your wallet is tucked securely inside. Carry your purse on your shoulder and under your arm, making it less accessible to others. If you are only carrying a wallet, keep it either in an inside pocket of your coat or jacket or in a front pants pocket. Keeping a wallet in a back pocket can make it very easy for a pickpocket to grab. • Don’t get overburdened with packages.

If you will be purchasing several small items, consider bringing a larger bag to put them all in. If your purchases become difficult to carry, take them out to your vehicle or rent a storage locker at the mall. Just be sure to retrieve your packages when you have finished all of your shopping. • If you do put your purchases in your car, be sure to put them in the trunk or in a location in the vehicle where they cannot be seen by someone walking by. Make sure all the windows are closed and that all the doors are locked. • When you set bags down to make a new purchase, always put them between you and the counter. Be sure you have picked up all your bags, including your newest purchase, before leaving the counter. • Always make sure you check your receipt and count your change before leaving the cashier. • Be alert and aware of your surroundings. Distracted individuals are easy targets for pickpockets.

Holiday “Home Safety Checklist” for Aging Parents The Illinois HomeCare and Hospice Council (IHHC) – the nation’s oldest home care association – today released its Top Five “Holiday Home Safety Checklist” to help ensure that aging parents can remain living independently. In addition, families with aging parents should take advantage of family gatherings during the upcoming holiday season to talk to their parents about what it takes for them to continue living independently. “Most people want to remain in their homes and neighborhoods as they age. But as needs and abilities change, our environment and our habits may need to change too,” said Lisa Hardcastle, president of the Illinois Homecare and Hospice Council. IHHC’s “Focus on Five” safety checklist covers five danger areas—pathways, bathrooms, kitchens, stairs and home entryways. The checklist includes: 1. Ensure that pathways to and from their homes provide safe passage. • Install bright lights and use night lights. • Secure rugs with non-slip backing. • Keep electrical cords out of the way. 2. Ensure that bathrooms offer fundamental safety aids. • Install grab bars in tubs and showers. • Use a non-slip mat or install adhesive safety strips in tubs and showers. • If using a bath mat on the floor, choose one that has a non-skid bottom. 3. Ensure that home kitchens have safe cooking areas and food is not expired nor stored near cleaning supplies. • Make sure the stove is free from flammable objects such as towels, potholders and curtain cords. • Store cleaning products away from food.

• Pay attention to food expiration dates: “When in doubt, throw it out.” 4. Ensure that stairways have safe railings and are clear to walk on. • Consider installing handrails on both sides of the staircase. • If handrails are already in place, make sure they are secure. • Keep steps clear of clutter. 5. Ensure that entryways are well lit and free of uneven surfaces. • Adjust lighting. It should be bright, but without glare. • Fix cracks in the pavement and sidewalks. • Remove or repair uneven surfaces. Anyone can access the full “Home Safety Checklist,” along with advice about approaching the subject of independent living, at www.homecareheadquarters.com. The website also provides home healthcare options and answers questions such as, “How do we choose a home care provider?” “The important thing for family members who want to reduce the risk of an older loved one suffering an injury in the home is to look around with fresh eyes and offer to help with home improvements,” said Hardcastle. “In addition to the safety checklist, our website offers advice for adult children who want to set the right tone when they talk with their parents about safety concerns.” Increasingly, older people are electing to live independent, non-institutionalized lives, and are receiving home care services as their physical capabilities diminish. More than 180,000 Illinoisans currently receive home healthcare, according to the National Association of Homecare and Hospice.

Home care providers serve patients who may be recovering, disabled, chronically or terminally ill. In addition, home care providers address health needs and offer assistance and guidance with the essential activities of daily living. Included among the specialists who provide home care visits are occupational therapists, who provide clientfocused intervention to adapt the environment to increase independence, promote health, and prevent further decline or injury. These services may be reimbursable under Medicare and some private health insurance plans when coverage criteria are met, including a physician referral. For more information about home safety and home health providers visit: www.homecareheadquarters.com. About the Illinois HomeCare and Hospice Council Founded in 1960, the Illinois HomeCare & Hospice Council (IHHC) is the nation’s first home care association and the voice for home care in Illinois. IHHC represents home care and hospice agencies that provide care to Illinois residents, companies that serve those agencies, and other state and federal organizations that have an interest in home care. To protect and preserve the basic rights of patients and clients, IHHC developed a Code of Ethics that agencies/ organizations agree to abide by when initially joining IHHC and when renewing their annual membership. The IHHC Code of Ethics informs members and the general public of acceptable guidelines for the ethical conduct of home care providers and their employees and representatives. The document also serves as notice to government officials that the Council expects its members to comply with all applicable laws and regulations.

“God is good, all the time” That is chanted by the campus minister, Mr. Collin Johnson, at Seton Academy and it is echoed by our students. Acknowledging the great blessings that we have, Seton Academy students led the Village of South Holland in a food drive to fill the shelves of the Food Pantry at Catholic Charities which is housed within the Seton building. Mr. Fred Shannon, Director of Catholic Charities – South Cook Region stated: “A great big thank you to the administration, students and families and neighbors of Seton Academy for their tremendous hard work and support in conducting a food drive

and delivering many tons of food to Catholic Charities last Saturday. Their work helps feed the growing number of needy families.” Students at Seton live by a Christian code of service to the community; they came together so that others can enjoy a warm hearty meal. Thanks to the community of South Holland and our neighboring towns, Seton Academy is surrounded by abundant grace, however, Hunger is a year round epidemic; for those who want to continue to donate you may make donations of food or a cash donation made out to Catholic Charities located at Seton Academy.

Anna M. Caison

I was reading an article in the newspaper about a large retail company that is experiencing a boom in profits yet pay its employees’ minimal wages. This company as well as others plans to cut their workers’ hours so they can get out of complying with the law to provide health insurance for the very people who have made it possible for them to enjoy the wealth that they have. The only thing that keeps me at peace is my faith in the Lord’s perfect care for me. Below is a reprint of a meditation I wrote 3 years ago when I was unemployed. It is just as relevant today as it was then. The Lifter Up of My Head I heard a song on the Worship Net channel by Jocelyn Brown that has refreshed my soul these past few weeks. The artist combined an old hymn (Leaning on the Everlasting Arms) with the song, “Praise the Mighty Name of Jesus.” The chorus of the song says – Praise the mighty name of Jesus, Praise the Lord the lifter up of my headPraise the Rock of my Salvation, All my days are in His faithful hands. Leaning, leaning, leaning on the Everlasting Apt. for rent: Dolton, 2nd flr. 2-bdrm. Stove refrigerator, carpeted, private parking, h e a t , A / C , n o p e t s, n o smoking.

ArmsLeaning, leaning, leaning on the Everlasting Arms. I’ve been unemployed for 14 months. My unemployment benefits ran out in December. My life from a human viewpoint looks quite bleak. But from the standpoint of the scriptures presented in the song, I, even now; dwell in a place of blessedness. How? My life is in the Faithful Hands of Jesus. Because I trust Him to care for, and protect me I can lift my head above my troubles and worship Him. By His love for me He has touched the heart of people around me to share their substance with me. The Lord has given me favor with my landlord, allowing me to keep my apartment for less than what he’s due. He has even sent people to encourage me and stand in prayer with me. And most important-----just as He had taught me the blessedness in graciously giving to others; He has now taught me how to graciously receive from others as receiving from Him.

obituaries I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving. I was fortunate enough to be able to pass out 108 turkeys to residents in the Village of Dolton. I did not realize the real need for assistance that some families have. I received names of families who might need a turkey for Thanksgiving - and some of those that received turkeys really did need food for the day. There was one family that I delivered a turkey to that said, “We don’t have lights, but we have gas so

we can cook the turkey.” There was a family that told me, “Thank you but we have a turkey, please find another family that really needs one.” I received a text yesterday that said, “Thank God for you.” This week my eyes were opened to the real need for assistance in our community. If you know someone in the community that you think may need a helping hand - just try to extend yours. Someone just may grab it! Riley H. Rogers – Dolton Trustee

Teen’s Perspectives on Social Media Social Media can influence teens not to learn who they are because that media can be a distraction that leads impressionable youth astray. Before long, priorities start to fall out of place, identities become more abstract and vague, and truth can be harder to find. Also, with media being an escape route for some teens, embracing and facing problems becomes a skill few our age possess. Social media is not only a delusion, but it turns people away from the things that matter in life and allows them to focus on a world that steals time, thoughts, and opportunities. By Sophia Ridgner and Jazlyn Goodwin

In a world where the internet continues to grow in followers and friends, negative and positive remarks and pictures are being posted. Whether we like to admit it or not, the internet changes a person. The internet can be dangerous to people our age because we feel that no one is watching us, what we see others doing rubs off on us, and sometimes we say words we wouldn’t say in front of authority

or people in real life. Though the internet will never be a safe place, we as users can try our best to make it that way by thinking before we write and not overly sharing information going on in our life. If we all take part in this, the internet may be safer for future generations. By Langston McHenry, Johnie Dunson, Quincy McGrew, Jaylon Scott, and DeMaris Williams I do not think we truly grasp the complete cruelty of what happens online. The positive feedback we may receive online can easily be erased by a single negative comment. With this generation, we act one way online and differently in real life. The reasons for this consist of being afraid of judgment, afraid of our peers, unwanted attention, and the power of freedom online. What we often fail to realize, however, is that what we post online we will be held accountable for because it is our volition to do so. By Jennifer Oduwole

Cloud Atlas is truly original and wildly accomplished... BRIAN GRABINSKI

Cloud Atlas (2012) 172 min - Drama | Mystery | Sci-Fi - 26 October 2012 (USA) SYNOPSIS: An exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution. REVIEW: Cloud Atlas is a staggering masterpiece, a positively inspired piece of filmmaking that blows the lid off cinematic convention and uses unparalleled artistry to tell a story that encompasses the whole of human experience. It is not just the most ambitious and revolutionary film of 2012, but the best of the year to date, and one of the most singularly unique and powerful cinematic milestones of the modern era. The film takes place in six separate time periods, each with their own narrative and characters, although many of the same actors – including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, Jim Sturgess, and Hugo Weaving – appear in every section, often in heavy prosthetics, sometimes cast in a different ethnicity or gender than their own. Each story conforms to a distinct genre – Broadbent stars in a screwball comedy, Berry in a

1970s detective noir, Hanks in a post-apocalyptic epic, etc. – each has unique aesthetics and production design – ranging from simple 19th century historical accuracy to complex, futuristic scifi dystopia – and each is so thoroughly detailed and rich with life that they could all function spectacularly as standalone shorts. The film preaches no particular religion or set philosophy, but is instead built around what I see as a fairly universal certainty: That we are affected by forces of the past, and that our decisions in life will long outlive us, no matter how small they may seem in the moment. That no life is truly insignificant, for everything we do directly influences someone else, and the chain reactions we start each day give birth to forces much larger than ourselves. That at our very best, we can each make a tremendous, positive difference in the lives of others, both in our own time and throughout the grand, macrocosmic scale of history. When one watches as many films as I do, it is easy to start sensing a general ‘sameness’ in everything one sees, whether it is good or bad, and to fool oneself into believing that there are limits to what the medium can accomplish. But Cloud Atlas is truly original and wildly accomplished on every conceivable level, as innovative, unique, and extraordinary a cinematic experience as I have ever witnessed. Cloud Atlas is a rousing, astonishing triumph, and the best film to hit theaters so far this year. On a scale of 1-10, I give this one a 10 My 2¢ -B You can read more of my reviews online at: www. themotionpicturereviewer. blogspot.com

mike buder What is so taboo about asking the question “how many homes like mine have you sold in the past year?” It is a simple question, but all too few agents will give you a number. Oh, they’ll tell you they have been a triple micronium producer or on a top team, whatever that means. It all sounds great. But here’s the deal: 90% of all the listings are sold by 10% of the agents. I’ll put it another way: in Lansing, Illinois there are 21 real estate companies and a total of 82 licensed sales people. In the month of October, those 82 sales people sold exactly 27 single-family homes in Lansing. There are 305 active listings, so there are plenty of people who listed with someone who somehow finessed the fact that they haven’t sold much of anything in a dog’s age. They might have stated that they work for a big company, productive office or some other larger truth that obscures the reality that they themselves are not doing very much. The problem here, and take it from a Realtor that lists dozens of expired listings each year, is that all that flowery gibberish breaks down when the seller

realizes that the 2004 top office producer award means nothing in 2012, or 20 years in the business can really be one year repeated twenty times. Sad to say, but many agents have not adjusted to the market and industry changes of recent and they refuse to admit it isn’t 1986 anymore. I feel that it would benefit the consumer if real estate agent sales statistics would all be made public. It does astound me, that as the largest trade association in America, that we haven’t encouraged the public to ask for a verifiable track record, references, and other factual, transparent credentials they can hang their hat on. They just say to select a member. In today’s difficult and constantly changing market, that may not be good enough.

What’s Your Big Idea? KEVIN BRADLEY It is already the end of November, 2012. How are you doing with your goals? Did you make any new year’s resolutions last year? How long did that last? Have you stuck to them faithfully? Set any new goals? Have hopes and dreams you would like to achieve? “I have been working on my first novel for over a year and a half. My goal is to complete my revisions and proceed with the next steps towards getting the book published. I have shared this goal with others before, but sharing it with all of you will make it that much more powerful.” This is what I wrote in my column at the end of 2011. I have been steadfastly working to achieve this goal. I have completed my manuscript and am currently in the process of seeking representation for my novel. This is no small undertaking, putting over 113,000 words on 225 pages, making it interesting and coherent, checking and re-checking punctuation and grammar, and now sending it out to professional agents, hoping one of them will love it, knowing full well that I may have to suffer through many rejection letters, as this is “normal” in the publishing business…a business very difficult to break into by a new author. J.K Rowling, author of

the hugely popular “Harry Potter” books suffered through many rejections from agents, when she finally got an agent, she was rejected many times by publishers. Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss) was rejected 27 times before he was published. Stephen King was rejected dozens of times and threw his manuscript in the trash in disgust. His wife dug it out, told him to try again… that time he was accepted. “The Diary of Anne Frank” was rejected 15 times. John Grisham was rejected by 12 publishers and 16 agents. Margaret Mitchell’s “Gone with the Wind” was rejected 38 times before being published and receiving the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction. Irving Stone’s novel, “A Lust for Life” was rejected 16 times and called, “A long dull novel about an artist,” before being published and selling over 25,000,000 copies. Like I said, this is not an easy business to enter. It takes a strong belief in yourself and a lot of persistence to make it. The only way you can fail in any endeavor is by giving up. Never give up. Setbacks are a part of life. Those who succeed learn from them and keep progressing towards their goals. Questions or comments may be sent to kevinbradley@columnist. com. Good luck, K.B.

Secretary Lawson To Suspend Licenses Of Stock Brokers Delinquent On Child Support

Securities Division have been identified as behind in child support in amounts of $4,000 or more. The total amount due is in excess of $160,000 with the largest amounts owed being $62,820 and $70,400. Individuals who have not made arrangements for payment with county prosecutors will receive a warning that payment is required or that a suspension is possible. If the individual does not respond, then the Securities Division may suspend their license until payment arrangements are made. Earlier this year, the General Assembly gave the Secretary of State the authority to suspend an individual’s registration under the Indiana Uniform Securities Act for failure to pay child support. House Enrolled Act 1294, which authorized the change, was authored by Representatives Heaton and Burton and sponsored by Senators Smith and Mrvan.

Recently, Secretary of State Connie Lawson sent letters to stockbrokers who are behind on child support and not making payments, warning that if they do not pay, their professional license will be suspended. Secretary Lawson worked with the Department of Child Services to identify financial professionals who are registered with the Securities Division of the Secretary of State’s office and who are behind in child support and not making payments. “Non-custodial parents have a responsibility to provide financial support to their children,” said Secretary of State Connie Lawson. “To ensure kids get what they deserve, financial professionals registered with my office who don’t pay will have their license suspended.” Four stockbrokers registered with the Wanted: Cash for gold/silver jewelr y, broken or not, antiques, anything old, entire estates or one item: furniture, jewelry, clocks, watches, toys, dolls, silverware, paintings, m i l i t a r y, l i g h t i n g , m i d century design & chrome f u r n i t u re, s m a l l i t e m s.

4 Ways To Squeeze In Holiday Exercise According to the National Institutes of Health, most Americans add a pound over the holidays from the sheer amount of food and inactivity. For some, though, it can be as much as six pounds. The best news? You can use that holiday running around to get in some exercise. Here’s how: 1. Shop In Real Life—Not Online When you’re being an online Santa, you’re burning as many calories as watching television. Instead, get out there and shop the mall, parking far away from the entrance. Don’t be one of those people waiting on a parking spot close to the store. You’ll get in a good walk even before you shop. For a better workout: Don’t dilly-dally between stores; keep up a strong, steady pace as you move between shops. For an even-better calorieburning workout, make trips to the car to stow bags instead of carrying them around. 2. Clear Drives and Sidewalks With a Shovel A snow blower is handy, but when you shovel your driveway by hand, you’re getting a chore done and burning about 400 calories an hour, based on a 150-pound person. For a better workout: Technique matters in snow shoveling. Spare your back those aches and pains; keep your spine straight and lift with your back and hips while rotating sideways. Don’t bend forward at the waist or pick up snow with just your arms. Snow shoveling should be a whole-body workout! 3. Intensely Clean Your House You might be surprised to learn that the typical moves you make when house cleaning Wa n t e d : S o m e o n e w h o collects empty prescription pill containers. 219-365-1109 Wanted: Demolition chissel/ hammer drill set & a hand grass detacher. 708-532-8337 Wa n t e d : Re d u c e r f o r a reciever 1-1/4 hitch to a 2” square sleeve. 708-532-8337 Wanted: Tie down assembly for spare tire & jack & extension & lug wrench for a 2005 Ford Crown Vic. 708532-8337

Ridgeway

(such as reaching up for cobwebs or picking up kids’ toys) are similar to gym-type exercises and stretches. So, take advantage of your holiday cleaning by being very thorough. Even vacuuming burns about 240 calories per hour For a better workout: Brief spurts of high-intensity effort can benefit your heart. Take a few trips up and down the stairs. Move furniture for extra deep cleaning and more of a workout. When your house is clean, you’ve likely burned as many calories as taking a long walk. 4. Create a New (Physical) Tradition So many of our family traditions are based on food Grandma’s famous peach cobbler, Aunt Jean’s delicious dressing. For a change, try making some form of physical activity a tradition. Mixing the social and exercise activities during a holiday means you’ll all burn some of those extra calories. For a better workout: Don’t limit yourself to just one activity; find something that everyone will enjoy. Go ice-skating or play a quick game of basketball. Also, there are often charity walks during the holidays. Make them your annual tradition.

We will help you get started on the road to feeling good and looking great! Don’t put it off another day - call us today at 708-849-2400 and sign up!

Treasured Letters From The Past MARJORIE alice DEVRIES Yesterday, I served a big Thanksgiving dinner for my family with a few windows cranked open to enjoy the mild breeze. Today, I had my husband haul out the Christmas decorations, in hopes of savoring the last few hours of nice weather after I finish writing my column. My son just came in the room to tell me he witnessed…snow. Sgt. Bob Buetow, of the 703rd Tank Destroyer Battalion during WWII was dreaming of a walk in the snow with his wife back in 1944. He was stationed in Germany at the time. It was cold, and the ground crunched under his feet, but it wasn’t a pleasant walk in the snow. The motto for Tank Destroyer Command is: “Seek—Strike—Destroy… But never duel! Tank Destroyers stalk their game like the black panther, which is their shoulder flash, and direct fire against enemy armor, which is the primary mission of these bulky looking but fast vehicles.” Let’s continue reading from last week, Sgt. Bob Buetow’s letter to his wife in Chicago: Saturday, December 16, 1944 (cont.): After I get back home I know you’ll never be sick ‘cause I’m all you need to keep you well. The same

goes for me too, because when I’m with you I don’t have any time to get sick— you keep me too busy for that and I love it! Are you still having cold weather back there? Maybe you’ll have a “White Christmas” this year for a change. Remember walking in snow in Roanoke together, darling? I’d certainly like to be back there with you right now. Golly, that was almost two years ago. Sometimes it seems longer than that, and other times it seems like it was only yesterday. We’ll have plenty of enjoyable times like that together, precious, after I come home, you, me and the “tobacco auctioneer”! Early last night I went to the show and saw Frank Sinatra in “Step Lively” and it was pretty good. I know you’ve seen it also. That’s all from this half of our family for tonight, so I’ll close with all my love and kisses. Your adoring daddy, Bob Marjorie Alice DeVries is a freelance writer, devoted to sharing the priceless treasure of war letters, each one a unique window into a life that once was.

American Savings Participates in Small Business Lending Fund (SBLF) Program In an effort to do its part as a community bank, American Savings, FSB is taking part in the US Treasury’s Small Business Lending Fund (SBLF). The SBLF is a dedicated investment fund that encourages lending to small businesses by providing capital to qualified community banks. With the understanding that small businesses play a critical role in the U.S. economy, central to creating jobs and restoring economic prosperity, the SBLF aims to enable community banks to help these small businesses put Americans back to work. Through the SBLF, participating lenders and small businesses can work together to help create jobs and promote economic growth in local communities. The bank’s President, Michael Mellon, says “This program is a win-win for the community and the bank. It helps strengthen the local business community while simultaneously strengthening the Carpet cleaning truck mounted with all equipment, including 1998 Economy Line 150 van.

The SBLF is not related to TARP! You can learn more at http://www.treasury.gov/ resource-center/sb-programs/Pages/ Small-Business-Lending-Fund.aspx. A faithfully local bank with a foundation in community, American Savings, FSB offers a full line of traditional consumer and business financial products to serve the complete financial needs of families and local businesses in its primary market area. Founded in 1910, the bank operates four full-service offices in Munster, Hammond, Dyer, and Schererville, Indiana.

bank’s commercial portfolio.” The SBLF is structured to encourage small business lending through an interest rate incentive structure. The rate the bank pays on the SBLF money increases or decreases depending on the bank’s ability to increase its small business lending. So it’s not just money for the bank to hold; it’s money that the bank is expected, and incentivized, to utilize for small business lending. Further, applications are encouraged from businesses owned by women, minorities and veterans. Only 10 community banks in the entire state of Indiana are participating, and American Savings, FSB is proud to be one of them. Says Mellon, “We are proud to do our part as a community bank by participating in this initiative. We often talk about the advantages a community bank offers in comparison to larger institutions, and this is the perfect
