Tent City 4 moves back to St. Jude

Despite problems at former Kirkland site, all’s well in Redmond, homeless residents and police say

Art Gonzales has experienced good times — and the toughest situations. He worked for equipment rental companies for seven years in Lake City and Bothell before the economy burst and he lost his job. “First thing that happened, I couldn’t pay my car payment, I couldn’t pay my one-bedroom apartment. It’s a pride thing. I wasn’t gonna run around and tell my friends, ‘I’m gonna be homeless,’ so I just kept it to myself,” said Gonzales, who stayed at Tent City 4, “built myself back up, got me a job, moved out within 90 days — and, again, that company (a millwork business in Woodinville) shut down.” Gonzales was again minus funds to pay the rent on his new apartment and he headed back to Tent City 4. These days, the 44-year-old mans the front desk as camp adviser at the latest Tent City 4 location at St. Jude Parish at 10526 166th Ave. N.E. in Redmond. This is the fourth time in recent years that the homeless camp — which is spon-

New businesses coming to Redmond Town Center Samantha Pak

It’s been about a year and a half since Borders in Redmond Town Center (RTC) has closed and the search to find a new tenant — or tenants — to occupy the former bookstore continues. Christina Henning, senior marketing manager for RTC, said they have had a lot of interest in the space and they are still looking for a business that would be a good fit. There are many types of businesses that can move into the space, she said, including stores that sell apparel for men, women and children or shoes. Henning said it is also possible for a

restaurant to fill the space. “There’s a lot of options, and when we find the right retailer or retailers, we’ll mutually know it’s a good fit and let our shoppers and community know as soon as we can,” she said. The vacant location is 25,000 square feet — pretty big for a Borders store, Henning said, crediting the store’s size and corner location in the town center as one of the reasons why the store was among the last to close when Borders Group, Inc. went out of business. Because the space is so large, Henning said there is potential to break it into smaller spaces. [ more RTC page 8 ]

SHARE/WHEEL established the first Tent City in 1990. Tent City 4 opened here on Jan. 13 and will stay for 90 days. It is a self-operated and self-governed, democratic society, and the residents hold weekly meetings and have a strict code of conduct for things such as drugs, alcohol and violence. Presently, about 40 people are staying at the camp, 30 men and 10 women, Gonzales said. “Everything is going great. We’ve been accepted very well and warmly from the community. (There are) no problems or anything with the camp,” Gonzales said. Gonzales noted that many of the residents have jobs and “try to save up their pennies so they can get an apartment, rent a room, get back into mainstream society instead of living in the tent.” In order to ensure safety for Tent City 4 residents and community members [ more homeless page 8 ]

City officials hope to turn former heron rookery into park Samantha Pak

Although downtown Redmond has been designated as an urban center, the City of Redmond is making an effort to ensure residents, workers and visitors will still be able to enjoy a fair amount of green space. In addition to Downtown Park, which is still in its early development stages, city officials are working to turn a former heron rookery into a public park. The 4.6-acres of land located just west of where Bear Creek Parkway and Leary Way Northeast intersect — across the street from the Redmond Saturday Market and southwest of Half Price Books — used to be the nesting site for a group of herons. This was about 10 years ago, but City of Redmond park opera-

The Davis Fund donates new truck to supply Hopelink food banks

The former heron rookery, located just west of where Bear Creek Parkway and Leary Way Northeast meet. Courtesy of Impact Redmond tions supervisor Teresa Kluver said the birds moved. Herons relocate frequently and Kluver said they think this particular group moved to a location around Marymoor Park just outside of Redmond. Kluver said the city didn’t want to do anything to disturb the downtown site while the herons were there, but now that they have vacated the area for

about a decade, the city has begun restoration work. Redmond recently received a grant from the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR), which funded a Washington Conservation Corps (WCC) crew to come out for three weeks at the end of last year to begin removing non-native invasive plants — primarily include blackberries, English ivy

The Davis Fund has donated a new truck that will help to connect Hopelink’s five food banks in north and east King County. The new commercial delivery truck will be used to connect donations to food banks and clients to food for more efficient

and English holly. “They made a huge amount of headway,” Kluver said about how much work the WCC crew completed. Kluver said these plants have “just taken over” the area. These non-native species grow over the native vegetation and are able to outcompete — whether that means blocking sunlight for other plants or growing up trees and as a result, breaking limbs. This causes problems for the local wildlife, which needs a more diverse ecological system to survive and thrive. Currently, the invasive plants that have been removed are decomposing onsite on racks above the ground so they can’t reroot, Kluver said. She added that in addition to removing these plants, the WCC crew has unfortunately also removed a fair amount of garbage that has been

thrown into the area. The next step for the city is to do a health assessment of the remaining plants there and then take soil tests to figure out which plants will survive on the site. Kluver said the city will also work with the Green Redmond Partnership to start an active stewardship of the forest and soon-tobe-official park. She said this is to get the downtown community energized and involved. “It’s their forest,” Kluver said. At the moment, no official restoration events have been planned but Kluver said they hope to have some things set for late spring and summer, adding that they should be doing some planting come fall of this year. While many people refer to the site as the heron

Carolyn Hope, a senior park planner for the City of Redmond, said they began the naming process at this week’s Parks and Trails Commission meeting Thursday evening to discuss naming options for the park. “If they need more time, we might extend it on to the next month,” she said, adding that the commission may ask for public input but it has not come to that yet. Once the commission has decided on a name, they will make a recommendation to the City Council, who will make the final decision. “It could take three or four months or so, depending on how many names are vetted and so forth,” Hope said about the naming process.

Go Red for Women February 1, 2013, marked the 10th anniversary of National Wear Red Day®, an event that was inspired to help raise awareness of the shocking frequency of heart disease in women. That first National Wear Red Day® in 2003 subsequently motivated the American Heart Association to create Go Red for Women, a social initiative intended to increase awareness, educate and inspire women to take action in the fight against heart disease. Funds raised for this initiative are also used to support scientific research and develop new tools and treatments in the fight against heart disease. Go Red for Women is QFC’s Charity of the Month for February. Here are some sobering facts provided by the American Heart Association. Heart disease is the #1 killer of women in the U.S. It accounts for 1 of every 3 women’s deaths. 90 percent of women have one or more risk factors that can lead to heart disease. Since 1984, more women than men have died each year from heart disease. Heart disease can affect women of all ages, even women who lead healthy lifestyles, if they have other risk factors. 64 percent of women who die suddenly from coronary

heart disease had no previous symptoms. Despite those statistics, only about 20% of women believe that heart disease is the greatest health threat they face. Go Red for Women and the American Heart Association are combatting heart disease through awareness and education and by motivating women to take action. Awareness includes understanding the symptoms of a heart attack, which can be different in women than in men. Women’s symptoms can include shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain. Other symptoms women should look out for are dizziness, lightheadedness or fainting, pain in the lower chest or upper abdomen and extreme fatigue. Knowing those symptoms is important, but wouldn’t it be even better to avoid those symptoms? And that means taking actions to reduce the risk of ever having a heart attack. Some of the actions the American Heart Association recommends are: not smoking, managing your blood sugar, get-

ting your blood pressure under control, lowering your cholesterol, knowing your family history of heart disease, staying active, losing weight and eating healthfully. Eating healthfully will have multiple benefits. A diet rich in a variety of vegetables and fruits, lean proteins, healthy fats and whole grains can be a great defense against the onset of high cholesterol, high blood pressure and heart disease. The AHA recommends that an adult consuming 2,000 calories daily should aim for: •

Fruits and vegetables: At least 4.5 cups a day.

Fish (preferably oily fish, like salmon): At least two 3.5-ounce servings a week.

Fiber-rich whole grains: At least three 1-ounce servings a day.

Nuts, legumes and seeds: At least 4 servings a week, opting for unsalted varieties whenever possible

As the pace of our lives moves faster and faster and the demands on our time increase, the ties to our community become even more important. A strong community provides us with a stable base that helps us deal with the pressures of daily life. At the Y, strengthening community is our cause, and on the Eastside, the Coal Creek and Bellevue Family YMCAs provide an anchor to our community that gives all of us — regardless of age, income or background — the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. At the YMCA, strengthening community means much more than providing a place to swim laps or lift weights, and while physical health is incredibly important to a person’s wellbeing, the Y does so much more. Every day, we work side by side with community members to address the most pressing needs in Redmond, Renton, Newcastle, Bellevue and Kirkland. We have taken on the aspiring goal to prepare all children for college, career and life. Through toddler, preschool, school age and teen programs, the Y is dedicated to ensuring that children are equipped with the academic and social skills needed to build a strong foundation for a lifetime of learning. Preschool parent, Tia, says, “As a single, working mom, coming to the Y was one of the best things I ever did. It provides reliable, quality child care, and Jordan loves being at the Y while I’m at work. I have such peace of mind, knowing that he is in good hands, enjoying fun activities and learning important skills like swimming.”

our turn

Right now, the state Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS) only provides subsidy for families at or below 100 percent of the poverty line ($23,050 for a family of four) creating a significant gap between those who qualify for aid and those that can actually afford quality care. With that, working families often settle for substandard care due to cost or choice or, out of necessity, have a parent stay home. Both options lead to fewer developmental building blocks and reduced financial trajectory impacting academic and social outcomes over the long term. Across the YMCAs on the Eastside, we have provided 27 percent of children with financial aid scholarships with quality infant, toddler and preschool care who otherwise would not have been able to participate. This allows working families to fulfill their financial obligations and make ends meet. Their child(ren) will have positive youth development experiences that ensure a smooth transition to kindergarten. YMCA Early Childhood Development programs are crucial to a community. Children who attend organized preschool outscore all other kindergarteners, go to kindergarten with 10,000 more words in their vocabulary, are 34 percent

more likely to reach basic achievement by age 14 and 27 percent more likely to graduate high school. There are many others who could benefit greatly from the services and programs offered by the YMCA and, because of this need, the Y is launching its annual community support campaign. Your financial gift will help continue the important work the Y does, be it providing kids a safe place to learn and grow before or after school; offering families opportunities to reconnect and grow together; or providing people of all backgrounds access to education and training to help them reach their full potential. We encourage everyone in the community to join our cause. When we all pitch in and help our neighbors, we make a meaningful, enduring impact in the lives of children and families and ultimately, strengthen our community. To learn how to support the Y’s campaign or volunteer, contact Tracie Draper at tdraper@ or (425) 282-1506.

Nadine Stewart and Michael Orbino are volunteer campaign chairs.

As if there weren’t enough intense, mind-boggling performances already. And then along comes Lara Jacobs Rigolo to put us on the edges of our seats with her “Manipulation” segment during Cirque du Soleil’s “Amaluna,” which opened last week under the big top at Marymoor Park. Aside from music playing softly in the background, the big top was silent as Jacobs Rigolo carefully bal-

matching the crowd’s hushed demeanor. Soon, however, we could hear her light breathing through a microphone as

she concentrated on achieving her goal of keeping those palm ribs together, holding them above her head with one hand — and then balancing them on her head. At one point, when she still had five sticks to go, I wondered why she didn’t just stop and bask in the glory of balancing 10 of them. Wasn’t that good enough? Nope. The Balance Goddess pushed herself further to reach her limit of 15 palm ribs, which in total weighed around 45 pounds. I’m always up for finding inspiration to take things beyond what we’re

“required” to do in life, whether it’s on the job, at home or in the community. There are no limits to what we can achieve, and Jacobs Rigolo proves that we can put in a little more effort in order make life more fulfilling for us or by lending a hand to someone in need. We’re always balancing tasks in our lives, and sometimes it seems as if there’s too much on our plates to put in a complete effort — something that will make ourselves proud. Watching the Balance Goddess gave me a boost of confidence and hope that we can all put in that extra effort each day.

McDonald’s Book Exchange will soon be turning a new page with move Samantha Pak

development in the summer of 2012 when the property was sold and St. Germain said they are still looking for a new space to lease. The current location, where they have been since 2005, is 2,800 square feet. This includes an expansion St. Germain had done about a year ago. This added about 500 square feet. She said it

would be almost impossible to find a new space the same size and same-styled building, which had previously been a house. And if she did find one, she probably wouldn’t be able to afford it. For the new location, St. Germain said she is looking for no less than 2,000 square feet. She would also like to stay in the downtown core, if

possible. “When you move, it takes a long, long time for people to move with you,” she said, adding that most people will assume a business is closed if they are not aware of a move. “We absolutely have to find some place right around the corner.” Although McDonald’s is not planning on closing,

it may possibly move out of downtown, depending on its new location. If this happens, it will be the second time in two years that downtown Redmond has lost a bookstore, having lost the Borders in Redmond Town Center in the summer of 2011. “I think it’s always a sad thing when a community loses a place (where) they can find reading material,” said Aaron Oesting — who is a cluster manager for King County Library Systems and oversees the Redmond, Redmond Ridge and Kirkland locations. He said reading and literacy are basic and fundamental skills needed to function in society that need to be maintained. In

addition, he said non-fiction is a great way for people to learn about the world, while fiction can be a great source of entertainment. Throughout her search for a new space, St. Germain said she has found a few locations that may work, but they would mean a major reduction in inventory because they are much smaller than their current space. McDonald’s provides a very specific service to bookworms in that readers can trade and recycle their books. St. Germain said as a result, they will often have more than just an author’s latest release, which comes in handy for customers who find a book they really enjoy and want to read more of the author’s works.

After 30-plus years of business and three different locations, McDonald’s Book Exchange in Redmond will be moving once again come June. But owner Anne St. Germain is still not sure where they will go. She said they are moving from their location at 16415 N.E. 83rd St. to make way for a private housing development. The new development will take up a large portion of the southeast corner of Northeast 83rd Street and 164th Avenue Northeast and St. Germain said they are not the only business who will be moving. Gary Lee, a senior planner for the City of Redmond, said the new building will be a 209-unit apartment building, with ground floor commercial businesses facing 164th Avenue Northeast. “The development also fronts on Northeast 83rd Street and the southwest corner of Northeast 83rd Street and 165th Avenue Northeast,” Lee said. McDonald’s, which is leasing the building it is in, received notice of the

Arts Commission members needed

The City of Redmond is recruiting two new volunteer members of the Arts Commission to begin their service in April. Redmond residents, unincorporated King County residents or people who work in Redmond are eligible to apply. Applications are rolling, but candidates are encouraged to apply by Feb. 19. For more than 25 years, the commission has advised the mayor and City Council on arts and cultural affairs in the city. Past work includes inaugurating the city’s public art program, seeding the Ananda Mela Indian Cultural Festival and funding the Digital Arts Festival. Now the mission of the Arts Commission is to be a catalyst for Redmond’s diverse community. The focus of this work includes cultural planning to make the arts accessible, create a place for the arts and nurture the arts in Redmond. Current activities include developing an art plan for downtown Redmond, investigating the economic impact of the arts in Redmond and the Eastside and identifying the cultural needs of the changing community. Arts commissioners serve three-

year terms. Working directly with city staff, commissioners attend monthly meetings (second Thursday of each month), participate in special committees and selection panels, cultivate community participation for city arts programs, projects and initiatives and network with artists and cultural providers on behalf of the city. To learn more about the Arts Commission or to download an application, visit www.redmond. gov/artscommission. For more information, contact arts administrator Joshua Heim at or (425) 556-2316.

Edmund C. “Ed” Hetterle 10/09/1934 – 01/21/2013

Edmund C. Hetterle, known to all as Ed, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, January 21, 2013. If you have ever wondered if someone could die from a broken heart, our dad is proof that it happens. He sorely missed his beloved Kathleen who passed away only eight months ago. Ed enjoyed spending time with his family and friends; he loved to talk and would pick up the phone to call anyone he happened to be thinking of just to see what they were up to. He was also known as a talented handyman and the Redmond home has many “Ed effects” inside and out. He loved listening to music, looking at maps, and talking to people. He liked a good joke and recounting stories of work, friends, and family fun. He was very proud of his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Dad was many things to us; he could be cantankerous and demanding, yet generous and loving. He instilled a strong work ethic, valued self-reliance, hard work, and didn’t mince words. You always knew where you stood, and you always knew you were loved. We’ll miss him. Ed was preceded in death by his beloved wife Kathleen, daughter Mary Beth Walker, and parents Edmund B.P. Hetterle and Isabelle Domde. He is survived by his sister Barbara (Bill) Turner and their family in Phoenix,Arizona. He is also survived by his children Candace Hetterle of Monroe, WI, Tom Hetterle (Margie) of Kirkland, Bart Hetterle (Katy) of Guemes Island, Cindy Sullivan (Dan) of Arlington, Teena Logan (Paul) of Tulalip, nephew Dave Thornton of Mountlake Terrace, Pete Hetterle of Entiat, Rebecca Villiers (Doug) of Sammamish, Tonya Blair of Sammamish, Michelle Lindell of East Wenatchee, sixteen grandchildren and two greatgrandsons. According to his wishes, his ashes will be scattered into the Entiat River by family in the spring. The family will be holding an Open House at the family home in Redmond on Saturday, February 9th from 1-4pm. All are invited to drop in. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory can be made to the Dreier-Newton Scholarship Fund at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley. 739330

winter, but they can always use more. Presently, Gonzales — who was married for 10 years and has a 16-year-old daughter in Bothell — is looking for a job so he can get back on his feet again. “I don’t have any money, but I can put forth my time to help out,” he said about working the front desk and discussing the need for Tent City 4 with community members. “I know that within a year, I’m not gonna be homeless, I’m gonna be back having my own apartment,” Gonzales said. “There’s people who are like, ‘Well, that’s never gonna happen to me.’ Well, everybody that sits in a house, watching their TV — it could happen to them. It’s a life-changing experience. “As we all know, once you get knocked down, you’ve still got to pick yourself up and keep going. It’s how life is,” he added. “It’s made me stronger and more confident. I already did it once, I can just do it again.”

still may need two floors but not all of the horizontal space. Although the future of the former Borders location is still up in the air, Henning said they do have a few businesses moving in to RTC and set to open later

this year. BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse is currently under construction on the south side of the complex. The restaurant is located next to Claim Jumper along Bear Creek Parkway, between 164th and 166th avenues northeast, where Desert Fire used to be. BJ’s offers a variety of dining options including sandwiches, pasta, burgers and shareable appetizers.

However, the restaurant’s specialty is deep-dish pizza. They also serve hand-crafted beer. “That’ll be a wonderful addition to the center,” Henning said. Another new addition will be Kitanda, a Brazilian coffeehouse based in Kirkland, which will be moving into the former Tully’s Coffee location at the corner of Northeast 74th Street and 164th Avenue Northeast. Henning said RTC will be donating the space at 7303 164th Ave. N.E. to Venues for Artists in the Local Area, Eastside (VALA). This space will become the VALA Art Center and is set to open this spring. The space will feature artist residencies, artwork installations, public events connecting artist to artists and artists to the public and educational programs for all ages. “The art center will be a wonderful addition to Redmond Town Center,” Henning said. “It’s definitely a learning opportunity.” She said the town center has always been a big supporter of art in the community, adding that the RTC Arts Festival and Sidewalk Sale will be returning this year and will coincide with the weekend of Derby Days. In late 2013, 24 Hour Fitness will be opening at 7320 170th Ave. N.E., where Top Foods used to be. Henning said this location will have a lap pool, basketball court, kid’s club and childcare.

What these possible divisions could look like would depend on the tenant and what they need. Henning said some businesses may need a space with high ceilings while others may only need one floor. Others

meeting for residents to voice their opinions about the scenario. “Some of the neighbors are a lot less cool with it than we are, so you do get a lot of disgruntled people coming and saying ‘Let’s go rally at the meeting’ or something,” she said. While sitting at the front desk, Gonzales said there’s nothing for people to worry about. Tent City 4 is inhabited by people who are trying to put their lives back together after falling on hard times. When they’re not working, they watch TV in the common area and check their email on the shared computer. For those out of work, they scour the job listings on Internet sites, hoping for something to come through for them. Their kitchen contains food that is donated by community members, and of course there are the meals that the church often provides. Gonzales said each camper gets six blankets to help conquer the cold during the


William Alvin Banks

William Alvin Banks, a resident of Redmond since 1964 and owner of Eastside Auto and Truck Parts, passed away January 16, 2013. A Celebration of Life will be held at noon, Saturday, February 9th, at the Happy Valley Grange in Redmond. Please visit www. for additional information.

“We’ve got a good working relationship between our city planners, us and the Tent City administrators. We’re not anticipating any issues.” Redmond resident Emily Papel has lived with her family across from Tent City 4 on 165th Place Northeast for five years and said that she hasn’t experienced any trouble with the campers. She noted that it was a little disconcerting this time around because of the Kirkland arrest. The family is also trying to sell their house, so they don’t want potential buyers to be wary of the neighborhood. “It does not bother us. In fact, the police presence is heightened, we’ve got less speeders, which is great for our kids because they walk to school still,” Papel said. “Generally, we feel safe and we’re happy that people have a warm place to stay.” Papel added that residents get a Tent City flier on their doorsteps about 15 days before the encampment sets up. There’s also a community



They let us have our meetings inside,” Gonzales said. “We’re happy to have them here again,” said Kuntz, who added that the parish provides some food for the residents, a shower hook up for gray water and an electrical hook up for some of their power needs. When Tent City first set up at St. Jude about five years ago, some parishioners wondered why church officials were allowing homeless people to stay there. Kuntz said, “it was fear of the unknown” and concern that Tent City occupants might be putting churchgoers and nearby residents in danger. He’s had many discussions with people about why this is the right thing for the parish to do: “We feel it’s imperative in the Gospel to take care of the poor.” Kuntz and Redmond Police Department Lt. Charlie Gorman said there have been no problems since Tent City 4 set up in January. “Everything seems to be running OK,” said Gorman.


living nearby, camp residents are subject to a criminalbackground check and sexoffender check, Gonzales and a SHARE spokesperson said. On Nov. 8, 2012, a man residing at Tent City 4 in Kirkland was charged with raping a child in Tacoma before he moved to the homeless encampment at St. John Mary Vianney Catholic Church last October. Tent City 4 in Kirkland faced another problem during that time frame when a group of residents left amidst a dispute between residents and SHARE. The split was the result of a decision that

the camp’s leadership made without SHARE’s approval to require random weekly criminal background checks on residents. As a result, SHARE barred nine residents from the camp. Gonzales said that everything is back on track with the move to Redmond. Tent City 4’s leadership is solid, he added. So is Tent City’s relationship with the St. Jude Parish community, according to Gonzales and Jerry Kuntz, parish administrator. “The father from the church and all the parishioners and everybody have treated us with kindness.

in 2011, Fouillade founded GeoBongo, which had the same focus on outdoor family time as Tohula. At around the same time, co-founder Matthieu Lefort began working on Weekenture, a similar service geared toward outdoors enthusiasts. Lefort piqued Fouillade’s interest after receiving an email through the Founder Institute, an organization dedicated to accelerating startup growth. “He looked crazy,” Fouillade recalled. “But it was a good kind of crazy.” After weeks of communication and two days of backpacking in Andora, a small country nestled between France and Spain, Lefort and Fouillade decided to merge companies into one.

“guide” or “point out” in Maori and “là” being the word for “there” in French. Tohula was founded with the idea of families spending time away from technology to reconnect with nature. “Parents have that responsibility,” said Lefort. “I have a bunch of friends complaining about how they have their kids on PlayStations, but who bought the PlayStation in the first place? It’s easy to blame the kids.” Tohula’s website is updated weekly with recommended locations based on factors like accessibility, distance and safety. One of the latest areas to be recommended, the Redmond Watershed Preserve, exceeds these requirements with its well-maintained trails and close proximity to suburban areas. It is also listed as a “rookie” trail on Tohula’s difficulty scale. “You can enjoy nature on different levels,” Lefort explained. “We’re trying to provide the right information that

most people lack today.” Parks that don’t meet Tohula’s requirements may be placed on a blacklist of sorts. In the near future, Fouillade and company will approach parks and recreation offices to find ways to improve them. Fouillade’s goal is to branch out to Oregon near the end of the year, hopefully reaching as far as Northern California. But for now, Tohula is focusing on the Seattle area. “(We want to) get a good number of customers, have good reviews, ensure that their experience is great, and have a system that scales up to another city,” Fouillade said. A smartphone app is also in the works, which will use GPS signals to help families navigate while on quests. Fouillade likens it to a compass: something to be used periodically that shouldn’t distract from the experience. The app is planned for later this year. Until then, Tohula will keep its weekly update schedule, even during

rely solely on their employers’ group insurance, which is often insufficient to adequately cover all the costs associated with maintaining their families’ lifestyles — not to mention future costs, such as paying for college. How much life insurance do you need? There’s no one right answer for everyone, so you may wish to consult with your financial adviser. Life insurance isn’t the only type of protection you need to consider — because you don’t have to die to lose your income. In fact, statistically speaking, you are more likely to

become disabled during your working years than you are to die — which is why you need adequate disability income insurance. Your employer may provide disability coverage, but, as was the case with life insurance, it may not be sufficient. So you may also need to consider adding a private policy. While it’s important to maintain adequate life and disability insurance, it’s still not enough to ensure your spouse will be taken care of if he or she outlives you. You also need to ensure that your estate plans are in order.

Your guide to Real Estate and home buying & selling

Love is in the air as Valentine’s Day rolls around again. During the course of your life, you’ve probably sent your share of flowers and candy. But if your Valentine is also your spouse — and, in particular, your longtime spouse — you may want to go beyond roses and chocolates this year to

give a gift that can help lead to financial security. You can choose to make financial gifts in a number of ways, of course, and some of them could provide an immediate financial impact. But you may want to look even further down the road and consider what you can do for your spouse in the areas of insurance planning and estate considerations. For starters, do you have sufficient life insurance to help provide for your spouse and any children who may not yet be adults? Many people

can’t really just “give” them on Valentine’s Day because it will take some time to assemble the insurance coverage and estate planning arrangements you need. But if you haven’t fully worked on these key parts of your financial strategy yet, perhaps Valentine’s Day will be a good time to start — because once you’ve got all your protection needs and estate planning taken care of, you’re really giving your valentine some gifts that are designed to last a lifetime.

Toward that goal, you will need to work with your legal adviser to create the necessary legal documents, such as a will, a living trust, a durable power of attorney or whatever other arrangements may be appropriate for your situation. In generating your estate plan, you must consider many factors: the amount of assets you have, how you want them divided, when you would like them distributed, and so on. In any case, estate planning can be complex, so you will need to work with your legal and tax advisers before putting any strategy into place. Life insurance, disability income insurance and an estate plan don’t sound like particularly romantic gifts. And you
