original artwork by their residents. The response was overwhelming, with more than 50 pieces submitted from across New York state. The judges included representatives from the New York State Museum and the Sorelle Gallery in Albany. Ranging in age from 52 to 93, the different backgrounds of the artists who submitted work creates a unique blend of artistic styles. Some are professional artists who have been drawing and painting their entire lives, while others discovered their talents after moving into a long term care facility where they began taking art classes. “Our residents have shared such rich stories through their artwork,” said Richard S. Patterson, Jr., executive director of the Foundation for Quality Care, Inc. “The ‘Art from the Heart’ calendar provides a forum for these talented and interesting individuals to shine.”

Suffolk County hosted a professional development conference Friday, January 31st, for non-profit groups and other community organizations. The daylong conference, designed by the Suffolk County Office of Minority Affairs, provided training in such topics as event planning, leadership skills, virtual teams, fundraising, and cross-cultural communications. “This was a great opportunity for local organizations to strengthen their leadership and fundraising and event capabilities,” Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone said.

Dr. Karen Sobel Lojeski, a professor of engineering and applied science at Stony Brook University and the founder of the Virtual Distance Institute, was the keynote speaker. Other scheduled speakers include A. Brian Leander, assistant director of the Long Island Center for Nonprofit Leadership at Adelphi University; Sandra Dunn, program director of the Hagedorn Foundation, Chung Chi Chou of the Wellbrook Foundation, Lenore Paprocky, director of sales at Holiday Inn Express Stony Brook, Robert Wu, a Dale Carnegie trainer, David Newman, and executive director of

the Jewish Community Relations Council of Long Island. The event was sponsored in partnership with the Suffolk County AsianAmerican Advisory Board, Jewish Community Relations Council of Long Island, SUNY Stony Brook, Department of Technology and Society, College of Engineering, Dale Carnegie Training, Holiday Inn Express Stony Brook, Taiwanese American Association of Long Island and the Wellbrook Foundation, Inc. Approximately 50 organizations participated in the workshop.

Common Car Seat Mistakes Parents Should Avoid (NAPSI)—Parents of young children need to be better educated in order to avoid making potentially dangerous safety mistakes when they are on the go. The Problem Automobile crashes remain a leading cause of death for children and it’s important that parents consistently and correctly use the appropriate car seat to keep their child passengers safe. Many parents may be unknowingly endangering their children as three out of four car seats are not used correctly, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Some Answers Busy parents and caregivers may be tempted by safety shortcuts when transporting children. AAA offers simple reminders to protect parents’ most precious cargo. Shortcut: “I’m only

driving a mile from home, so my son doesn’t need to be secured in his car seat since it’s a short trip.” Reminder: You should buckle up properly on every trip—no matter the distance—especially since most crashes occur close to home. Shortcut: “I’m picking up several kids after soccer practice and I’m going to put my 8-year-old daughter in the front seat so all the children can fit into the car.” Reminder: All children under age 13 are safest when riding in the backseat and properly restrained in a car seat, booster seat or seat belt. Shortcut: “We will be driving more people in our car than we have seat belts. Since it’s a short trip, it’s not a big deal for someone to ride on another person’s lap.” Reminder: It’s never safe to ride on another person’s

lap. Each passenger should be properly restrained on every trip. Shortcut: “My son is 10 years old and 4’6” tall. He’s big enough to use a seat belt now.” Reminder: The American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends children continue to use beltpositioning booster seats until they are 4’9” and the seat belt fits properly. Help For Parents Fortunately, AAA experts are available to help parents with car seat installation. Visit an AAA club, go to www. seatcheck.org or call (866) SEATCHECK [(866) 7328243].

Just A Cup Of Coffee

Send Us Your Best Pics To Be Featured

By: Bob Sinclair

After the loss of someone very close, those around us are caring and concerned, making every effort to shield us from the hurt, and try to lessen our heartbreak. But at times, it just takes a quiet moment with a special someone or discovering something, anything, offering comfort or some relief from the grief, loneliness and unbearable ache. The “something” could be as simple as the warmth of an old, somewhat worn and familiar cup filled with hot and inviting morning coffee. It appears as though each sip relieves some of the pain, even sharing the anguish while stirring emotions which, not surprisingly, leave you feeling a little drained and empty.

“Roll Out The Barrels” Photo by: Mike Missano, North Babylon

Adding a bit of sugar is a little reminder to reflect on those sweet times you shared in your life together, understanding that right now nothing seems quite right, nor appears to make any sense. As you stir your coffee, inhale the aroma and savor your memories, knowing the cup will soon be empty; and although there will always be an empty place in your heart, the images of the life you shared will gradually replace the sorrow. Listen to a sort of musical reminder as the spoon circles and brushes against the sides of the cup, and you will never forget that you will always cherish and embrace your old memories, while knowing the cup may empty today, but will fill with new memories each tomorrow. For now, just wake each morning with the thought “good morning sweetheart….let’s have a nice cup of coffee.” It’s OK!

It is not unusual to hold on and not let go just yet; it is okay to cradle the cup to your heart, cherishing your time together, and embracing some touching personal moments.


Sea Tow Services International, the nation’s leading marine assistance organization, is proud to announce that Captain Les Trafford, owner of Sea Tow Shinnecock/Moriches in New York, was presented with a distinguished Life Saving Award from C-PORT (Conference of Professional Operators for Response Towing) and AFRAS (Association For Rescue At Sea) during the 27th C-PORT Conference. The national conference was held January 12th14th, 2014 in Clearwater Beach, Fla. Each year, AFRAS recognizes a deserving member of C-PORT who has shown exceptional skill and determination to save lives during a rescue incident in the maritime environment. Capt. Trafford was recognized for his actions on the afternoon of May 12, 2013, when he was

While near the debris field, the helicopter crew located a person clinging to a lobster buoy one mile offshore to the east of the bar, and directed Capt. Trafford to the location for pickup. Demonstrating expert boat handling skills, determination and focus, Trafford quickly clipped a life ring to his towline, then maneuvered his boat to within 10 feet of the conscious deckhand and quickly pulled him on to his boat. Remaining focused, Trafford verified there were only two persons aboard the Pauline, and learned the boat’s captain never came out of the cabin when it was caught by a large following sea and immediately capsized. Trafford and the deckhand continued to

notified that a 45-foot trawler, the Pauline IV, had capsized on a sandbar in treacherous Shinnecock Inlet in Long Island, New York, with two persons aboard. Within 10 minutes, Capt. Trafford in his 24foot Sea Tow boat arrived at the inlet. It was a bright, sunny and gusty day with winds blowing steadily from the southwest at 20 knots with higher gusts. Short-period 6- to 12foot waves were battering the sandbar. As Trafford approached the bar, he expertly read the conditions, determined he could make it through the surf zone, and circled oceanside and east of the bar to where the Pauline IV had capsized and was bottomside-up, leaving a debris field. Remaining in deep water, Trafford searched the east side of the bar. He patiently scanned the debris field but did not

What Dreams May Come By: Jamie Lynn Ryan Do you dream? Better yet, do you remember these abstract visions once you awaken? Do they make any sense, or are they simply random collections of people in mystery places, moving wordlessly through your subconscious with no clear direction or purpose? I once took a class on the Philosophy of Dreams in college, where the sole objective was to keep a dream book and analyze its contents week-to-week, drawing conclusions from whatever images may have manifest themselves overnight.

To say there were many interesting – disturbing, even – discussions would be an understatement. And those were just the dreams my fellow students recalled! A dream is a wish your heart makes, or so the saying goes – but what of nightmares and other less desirable visions? What do they mean? Should any conclusions be drawn, or are they simply beyond the scope of human comprehension? And what of the dreams that fall into oblivion, never to be revisited again? I often find myself falling into and out of various

states of sleep, tossing and turning from one bizarre dream to the next, vaguely aware of the people and places surrounding me, but rarely discerning any viable plot from the whole scenario. The thing is, I rarely recall these visions by the time the new day dawns. There and gone, perhaps to be revisited at a later date. Or not. It’s a fairly exciting concept, when you stop and think of the mysterious majesty of it all – the subconscious, delving into the unconscious, and back again. Too deep? Brain on overload? Maybe it’s time for a little nap!

(NAPSI)—There are steps parents and others can take to drive down the dreadful rate of traffic injuries and fatalities. An estimated 6,000 people are killed and 500,000 people are injured annually because someone was texting, e-mailing or talking on a mobile phone while driving. The Facts Dr. Joel Haber, a clinical psychologist and LG Text Ed council member, explains that for teens, texting and driving is an even bigger problem than it is for adults. First, kids text more. Texting is their preferred mode of communication. According to a recent LG Text Ed survey conducted by LG Mobile phones, while half of all teens admit to texting while driving, only 4 percent of

friends. Playing on the field, I have developed a keen sense of peripheral vision. I have to be keenly aware of not only what’s in front of me, but also where my teammates are, and what everyone is doing on the field. I follow the same perspective in my academic studies. This helps me understand context, and has helped me solve challenging problems by looking beyond the obvious. The only setback that I have come across so far, is that we are lacking size. We have around fifteen or twenty guys, but we need twenty five to make a competitive

alcohol concentration at the legal limit of .08 percent. • Driving while using a mobile phone reduces the amount of brain activity associated with driving by 37 percent. • Drivers who use handheld devices are four times as likely to get into crashes serious enough to injure themselves as those who don’t. • An estimated 11 percent of drivers are talking on cell phones while driving at any point during the day. The Steps 1. Impress upon teens the need to not text or talk on the phone while driving by not doing so yourself. Beyond providing an example of responsible behavior, this creates a safer driving environment. 2. Explain to your teens

the seriousness of the situation and let them know that it is important to have a plan in order to avoid temptation. For example, have them always keep their cell phone off while driving or in the backseat out of reach to avoid distraction completely. 3. Learn more from the experts in mobile technology at LG by visiting the company’s LG Text Ed website, www. lgtexted.com. As part of its Text Education campaign, LG offers insights and solutions on how to avoid possibly harmful behaviors such as distracted driving. In order to keep distractions to a minimum, LG encourages all drivers to never text while driving and to always use a handsfree Bluetooth device when operating a vehicle.

errands; try to travel when traffic is light to avoid stopand-go conditions. • Go easy on sudden, hard accelerations; don’t speed; anticipate traffic patterns ahead and adjust your speed gradually. • Keep the engine running at its peak by replacing filters and fluids as recommended in the owner’s manual and having engine performance problems such as rough

idling corrected. • Use windows and airconditioning wisely. At highway speeds, it’s better to keep windows up (and air-conditioning on, if wanted) to reduce air drag.

The first half of my school year has ended, and I have realized that I have started to crave more community involvement. To satisfy this urge to take part in more activities, I have begun to revive the South Shore Hookers Rugby Club. Essentially, for the past few seasons, this club has been defunct. Now, with the assistance of my brother and friends, I am striving to bring back a team that was once a staple of Suffolk County’s Rugby scene. Since I was a toddler, my father has taught me the basics of the sport, and I have taught my

The Gift Of Friendship Make this Valentine’s Day extra special for your family and give them the gift of friendship with a Fresh Air child! Each summer, over 4,000 inner-city children visit suburban, rural and small town communities across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada through The Fresh Air Fund’s Volunteer Host Family Program. This summer, join volunteer host families in the Huntington, NY area who open their hearts and homes to New York City children. “We love sharing the wonders of lightening

bugs, playing in the backyard, and swimming with our Fresh Air friend!” says Liz, a Fresh Air host. Fresh Air children are boys and girls, from six to 18 years old, who live in New York City. Children on first-time visits are six to 12 years old and stay for one or two weeks. Children who are reinvited by host families may continue with The Fresh Air Fund through age 18 and can enjoy extended trips. Families find hosting so rewarding that more than 65 percent of all Fresh Air children are invited to visit the same host families year

of Education, Faculty, and Staff. It continues with supportive residents and local businesses who understand that the health of their school district brings health to the community. However, it is mostly the result of longrange planning that must navigate the intricate and perpetually challenging funding options required of school districts, such as unfunded and underfunded mandates, skyrocketing testing costs, loss of state aid, unfair distribution of aid, the Gap Elimination Adjustment, and increasing expenditures from legislated policy. One size does not fit all. The solutions to these challenges are unique for each community. Proactive initiatives in Sayville included passing proposed budgets, especially those within the Tax Levy Cap, as well utilizing smaller Bond Referendums—the most cost-effective vehicles that have no impact on the tax rate—for updating old or failing infrastructures. The repeal of the Gap Elimination Adjustment (GEA)** would also help by restoring approximately

$1,015/student/year back to Sayville. With the support of the Sayville community, which has valued our school system, this fiscal health can continue. The Board of Education and Sayville Administration are also very aware of the fiscal difficulties many families face and will continue to strive to provide fiscally responsible budgets in these difficult economic times. Despite the turbulence expected during the 20142015 Budget Process caused by continued State shortfalls (like the GEA) in funding school programs, this NYS Fiscal Stress report demonstrates that Sayville School District has been doing its best to control costs, to refinance its debt service with lower interest rates (saving over $740,000 last year), while still maintaining excellent and affordable educational programs and opportunities that ensure our students will be college/job-ready.

On a scale of 0 to 100, with 0 being no fiscal distress and 100 being the most fiscal distress, Sayville School District ranked 0 in the New York State report.* The report examined financial indicators and environmental factors in determining the fiscal health of local governments (counties, cities, towns, villages, and school districts) statewide. Everything from fund balances, operating deficits, student enrollments, cash position, and property values were reviewed by auditors. This news about Sayville is significant. It demonstrates that Sayville School District has been using prudent fiscal strategies for years to earn this ranking. While these strategies are complex, they have yielded a conservative, but forwardthinking approach to spending and saving which has created fiscal stability in our district. It is a team effort.

The Day The Circus Came For spectators, the “Circus” usually conjures up fun images of silly clowns, amazing acrobats, and even elephants, but people may not be aware that circus performers are extremely dedicated masters at making every act look effortless. In Sayville School District, Cherry Avenue Elementary students learned this first-hand when they participated in a week-long cultural arts program, The National Circus Project, which was sponsored by the Cherry Avenue PTA upon the recommendation of Principal Dr. Lisa Ihne. For 25 years, the National Circus Project has delivered their curriculum for circusskills instruction and circus-education training program to schools and summer camps. With their unique program, the students don’t just watch the performers, they become the performers, by learning circus techniques that promote overall coordination and confidence. Practicing all week in workshops during Physical Education classes, every Cherry Avenue student from Kindergarten to Fifth-grade trained with the National Circus Project experts Al “Renaldo” Calienes (Staff Trainer) and Liam Selvey, who taught them more than just circus acts. Encouraging the students to test different skill sets, the

instructors made sure there was something for everyone. No matter whether they were selected for juggling, dish spinning, balancing, stilt walking, acrobatics, or, of course, clowning, every student grew personally as he or she learned self-discipline, hand-eye coordination, selfmotivation, and most importantly a positive attitude.

Working with the professionals was an amazing opportunity thanks to the educational specialists who have linked circus-training skills with the physical education component in schools. According to their website: “We developed a revolutionary method of

diagnosing and correcting physical issues of hemispheric synchronicity and laterality, using juggling and object manipulation. And we presented circus as great way to given non-athletes a physical profile.” Cherry Avenue Physical Education teacher Jennifer Fee observed how beneficial the sessions were for the students. “It was very nice to have experts show the kids new skills. The instructors kept their attention, and the kids learned confidence by doing things they never thought they could do.” By the end of the week all the Cherry Avenue students had enjoyed the workshops, but the Fifth-grade students showcased their newfound abilities during an evening Circus Performance (sans elephants) in the Middle School gym before a live audience of 400 guests. Every act was an accomplishment that amazed friends, family, and Cherry Avenue staff members who witnessed the transformation from typical student to extraordinary performer. While receiving tremendous applause from the dazzled audience was immediately gratifying, all the Cherry Avenues participants should share in the pride knowing that their new sense of achievement, which they gained through practice and persistence, was the greatest reward.

Bite Out Of Science Academy Street Elementary School second-grade students dove deep into the ocean during a nonfiction unit of study on sharks. The students selected a shark of interest and completed research projects based on

their chosen fish. From the great white to hammerheads and tiger sharks, the students learned about their physical characteristics, habitat and diet before writing a research paper. At the end of the project,

the students created dioramas to artistically display their findings. Visiting classes from the building toured a shark tank museum to view the completed projects and learn about the sharks on display.

During the visit, the students were given an overview of the responsibilities of Coast Guard personnel and had the opportunity to board two of the five boats staged at the location. The visit also included

an interactive guided tour made especially for younger visitors. To their delight, the students were able to don safety gear, helmets and flotation suits.

We know what they learn today will help them the rest of their lives.” The JROTC is a federal program originally created as part of the National Defense Act of 1916 and later expanded under the 1964 ROTC Vitalization Act. The purpose of

the JROTC is to instill the values of citizenship, personal responsibility, patriotism, and self-reliance; the ability to communicate well, develop team- building skills, and leadership skills. “Not all school districts have ROTC,” said Licalzi. “It’s a shared service via ESBOCES and a collaborative between a school district and a branch of the military. The focus is on attendance, grades, and participation in school activities.” Master Sergeant Lochren said, “JROTC gives the students a sense of belonging, like a club or sport team. It’s not a recruiting tool.” Scholarships are afforded to students. Picone said, “I’ve had students attend Boston University, Villanova, Columbia University, MIT, and the Naval Academy with scholarships they received from JROTC.” Each year a banquet is held. Awards and scholarships are presented by representatives from the Veterans of Foreign War (VFW), Daughters of the American Revolution, and the various branches of the military. After the presentation, students shared the following thoughts: “In order to be a leader, you have to be 100% committed to your group.” “You can be a leader at home, and in your class.” “To be a leader you have to have good motivation and a good attitude.” “As a leader you have to be a follower, because you have to rely on your team. There is a synergy to it all. If you don’t rely on your team, then you aren’t a team.” “To be a leader you have to have people follow you, and you (the leader) have to listen.”

Administrative Coordinator Molly Licalzi said, “We hold a leadership day once a year to give students from across Long Island an opportunity to get together to learn leadership skills. Dr. Ray Jorgensen, a pioneer in the field of conversational leadership, was the presenter.” Dr. Jorgensen said, “The men that know how to lead are in this room with you today. They have had leadership experience. They were responsible for other men and women. That is a leadership experience. Some people have never had it. Some people in leadership roles never had to be responsible for others.

Identity Theft Prevention Tips (NAPSI)-A recent online survey by Toluna/ Greenfield Online, Inc. found that while most consumers try to protect their identity, many admitted to risky behavior that could put them at risk for ID theft. To help educate and protect consumers, world-renowned fraud prevention expert Frank Abagnale offers these tips: • Shop smart: Limit the credit cards you carry. •Keep receipts and check your statements: Examine every charge on your statement before paying. Your receipts provide a great cross-reference check and guard against suspicious activity. You have 30 days from the date of your statement to notify your financial institution of any discrepancies; otherwise, you can be liable for any purchases. • Protect your computer when online shopping: Make sure your security patch and anti-virus software are updated regularly. Consider

technology to protect against potential viruses. • Watch where you shop online: Look for the lock icon on the site’s browser status bar, a sign that that site is safe. If you have never heard of a website before, see if it has security precautions in place and isn’t a fake site set up by identity thieves. •Don’t write checks: Give cash or gift cards. The information on a check—name, signature, address—can be used to steal identity. •Strengthen passwords: Use passwords with at least eight characters, including a combination of letters, numbers and symbols that are easy for you to remember but difficult for predators to guess. • Watch your wallet: Be careful at parties, restaurants, fitness clubs, shopping carts and your car. • Don’t take the bait on phishing scams: Also, beware of shoulder surfing (when a thief looks over

your shoulder while you’re at an ATM, either directly or via a camera). • Stop mail and newspaper delivery when you’ll be away from home. • Consider an identity theft protection service: One low-cost solution monitors the online criminal underground where identities are bought and sold and instantly alerts you if your Social Security number or up to 10 credit card or debit card numbers are posted by thieves. The service also scans online directories and search engines, prime sources for spammers and thieves, letting you know where your information is available, and provides advice on how to remove it. TraceMyID customers are covered with up to $1,000,000 in identity theft insurance and get personal fraud support in reclaiming their identities should they become victims of ID theft.

Senior Citizen Of The Year

SHARP SHOOTERS - Four students from Connetquot Central School District’s Edward J. Bosti Elementary School recently won the Islip Town Sharpshooter basketball competition. The group of 9 and 10 year old students will get to represent the District against other competing elementary schools in the final round scheduled for February 22nd at the West Islip High School. The Sharpshooter competition is held in cooperation with local public and private schools, and stresses the importance of staying active and being healthy.

Suffolk County Legislature Presiding Officer DuWayne Gregory is accepting nominees from the 15th Legislative District for ‘Senior Citizen of the Year,’ the Suffolk County Office for the Aging and the Suffolk County Senior Citizens Advisory Board’s annual award. Presiding Officer Gregory is asking residents to nominate a person who is a role model, advocate, leader or volunteer who

has enhanced the lives of older residents in Suffolk County. “Suffolk County values the lifelong contributions of our senior citizens,” said Presiding Officer Gregory. “Individuals who are dedicated to improving the quality of life for senior citizens deserve special recognition. Please consider nominating a senior citizen in our community who has made a difference in the lives of

other older residents.” Nominations must be received by the Suffolk County Office for the Aging no later than March 13th. Nominees must be Suffolk County residents 60 years of age or older. Government employees who provide senior citizen services are not eligible. Nomination forms may be obtained from the Suffolk County Office for the Aging or from Presiding Officer Gregory’s district office.

Big, Colorful Ideas For Small Spaces ( N A P S I ) — T h e C(NAPSI)—Making a small room appear larger can be as simple as using color creatively. To add some breathing room to a compact space, all you need are some colorful ideas. “Color is one of the easiest, most affordable ways to transform the look and feel of a room,” says David Bromstad, HGTV® star and celebrity interior designer. “When used in a few well-chosen

places, such as a feature wall or statement piece of furniture, color can have a big impact in a small space.” Bromstad offers these color tips for transforming a space from tiny to airy: Create a focal point with paint. Paint a statement wall that draws attention away from the size of your space and toward something beautiful and vibrant. Bright or bold colors work well, as the wall can appear to recede,

creating the illusion of space. Go big with lighter and softer colors. In areas beyond the feature wall, use lighter and softer colors to make the space seem larger. Light blues and greens add significant light subtly to a room. Coordinate your colors. Stretch your space and maximize impact by using color to coordinate your rooms and decor. HGTV® HOME by SherwinWilliams offers pre-

coordinated collections of color, paint and wallpaper. The color palettes can be used to ensure that your walls, furniture and accessories help create a cohesive look. Reflect upon something. Placed opposite a window or side by side, mirrors can spread light throughout the room to make spaces feel larger. A tall mirror draws the eye up, making ceilings look taller. When angled toward your room’s focal wall, a mirror can

also create the illusion of depth. Paint something unexpected. Think beyond your walls and consider painting your mailbox or address numbers on your home, a stairway banister or a piece of furniture. Add a colorful punctuation point by transforming a bedroom nightstand bright blue or a desk chair in an unexpected orange. Everything else in the room will appear larger. “Clever use of color adds

the illusion of space and injects personality into it as well. That’s what’s great about color; you can dramatically alter the look of a room while expressing yourself in a fun way,” Bromstad adds.

The Need To Develop A Retirement Consumers Should Take Plan Advantage Of Free Credit Reports ( N A P S I ) — T h e Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) found that many consumers are overwhelmed by the amount of information available to help them learn more about the financial services marketplace. At the same time, the CFPB found one of the most popular resources offered is information about credit reports. The credit bureaus have found that information about credit reports is popular as well. “Each

year, there are over 25 million free credit reports provided to consumers,” said Stuart K. Pratt, president and CEO of the Consumer Data Industry Association. “And while that’s a significant number, there are still a considerable number of consumers who aren’t exercising their option to get their report. According to a survey done by VantageScore and the Consumer Federation of America, 37 percent of consumers have never obtained a copy of their credit report,” he added.

Consumers can get a free credit report from each of the three nationwide credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian and Trans-Union, once a year by going to www.annualcreditreport. com. The process is easy and enables consumers to have real-time access to their credit reports. “Many people get annual medical checkups. We encourage consumers to be just as conscientious when it comes to their personal finances; get an annual credit checkup by obtaining your free credit report,” added Pratt.

(NAPSI)—Preparing for retirement can be a challenging process— and emerging trends are not helping matters. Fortunately, developing a retirement plan can help. That’s the word from experts who say changes in employee benefits, longer life spans, uncertainty with Social Security and Medicare and the rising cost of health care have made funding retirement more difficult. With most of the responsibilities for

financial aspects of retirement now falling squarely on the shoulders of individuals, the key, according to Insured Retirement Institute President and CEO Cathy Weatherford, is to have a comprehensive plan that addresses both retirement income and expensesincluding health care. National Retirement Planning Week was created to remind consumers of the importance of having a plan for funding their retirement.

For those needing help, a professional financial advisor can assist when creating a road map toward attaining financial security. To learn more, visit www. retireonyourterms.org. Kind Words Kind words do not cost much. They never blister the tongue or lips. They make other people goodnatured. They also produce their own image on men’s souls, and a beautiful image it is.
