If you have your birth certificate in a closet, your will in a drawer, and stock certificates tucked away in a book somewhere on a shelf, then this checklist is for you. No matter how organized you think you are, without the proper planning, you are only one disaster away from chaos. A little time and energy up front can save you tremendous headaches and financial hardship during emergency situations.

Critical Document Checklist Whether you decide to rent a safe deposit box or store your papers at home in a lock box or personal safe, the following loosely categorized list is a starting point to help get them organized: • Personal records • Adoption papers • Citizenship papers

• Death certificates • Diplomas • Immunization records

Financial records • Bonds • Deeds on property • Household inventory including active account numbers and registrations of valuable equipment including firearms, electronics, computers, and software • Insurance policies • Investment certificates including stocks and mutual funds • Loan records • Vehicle titles • Photocopies of front & back of credit cards; licenses

• Military records and discharge papers • Birth certificates • Passports • Marriage certificate • Original social security cards • Baptism or confirmation records

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

Are your important records and documents scattered around your house?

Legal papers • Child support agreements/custody arrangements • Copyrights, patents and inventions • Divorce decree and settlement • Inheritance records • Living trusts • Living wills • Powers of attorney • Wills* *If you store a will in a safe deposit box, make sure that a trusted family member or the executor of your will has right of access to your box. Otherwise, getting access to your will after your death could be unnecessarily difficult.

Securing documents Aside from the issue of a safe deposit box and your untimely demise without someone to access your will, there are other considerations pertaining to safe deposit boxes you may want to consider. Read the rental agreement carefully. You need to make sure that your spouse, executor, or a trusted family member or friend knows how to get to your safe deposit box and retrieve its contents. If you store your papers at home, a fireproof safe is your best bet and, if the worst happens, a wise investment. However, at the very least, it's sensible to organize your important documents and records for speedy retrieval in one easily accessible location known to as few people as practical.

Higher Learning 101 Helpful Information on Getting into College Standardized Tests

Admissions tests are only part of the applications picture. Challenging courses, good grades, commitment to extracurriculars, teacher recommendations, and strong admission essays all contribute to creating a portrait of who you are.

Five Tips to Help You Test Your Best: 1. Look into enrolling in a test-prep class where you will have an instructor to guide your studying.

84 | Welcome Home 2010

2. Do some research on the exam to ensure you are familiar with the rules and layout of the test. 3. Complete practice exams. 4. Look at your patterns and pacing. 5. Make a testing plan for yourself.

Start Your College Search by Participating in

Student Search Service (SSS) When You Register for SAT, PSAT, or AP Exams. Student Search Service is a free information service for students who take the PSAT, SAT, or AP Exams. By participating in SSS you can let colleges, universities, and scholarship programs know you are interested in hearing from them and get educational and financial aid information from colleges, universities, and scholarship programs.

College Board SAT Program Fee-Waiver Service (collegeboard.com) The following local institutions have agreed to consider waiving the application fee for applicants who use SAT waivers during the 2010-11 academic year: SUNY Adirondack, College of Saint Rose, Hudson Valley Community College, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), Russell Sage College, Siena College, Skidmore College, SUNY College of Albany, and Union College

How to decide which colleges offer the educational and social experiences you are seeking requires some research. Here are some questions to consider when choosing which colleges to apply to:

Location

Page 85

Extracurriculars Does the college have the types and ranges of extracurricular activities you are interested in?

Facilities Will you have access to labs, computing centers, and music, theater, or athletic facilities?

Campus Life

Do you want to live in an urban, suburban, or rural campus? How far from home do you want to live?

What kinds of social events does the campus have?

Size

What kind of financial aid will the college provide?

How big is the student population? What about class size?

Mix of students Is the college coed? Are there students from all over the country, with different backgrounds and experiences?

Academics Does the college offer programs of study that interest you?

Cost

Rural College Campuses Rural colleges, usually near wilderness areas, have educational opportunities related to science and nature. Going to a school with access to outdoor facilities will give you a chance for hands-on environ-

mental studies. Outdoor activities such as skiing, rock climbing, or fishing may be short trips from the campus or even on campus. Most rural schools provide free or cheap transportation for college students.

Urban College Campuses Cities are centers of culture, art, design, communication, and manufacturing. Some are self-contained islands within a city, while others are spread over city blocks. You’ll find opportunities for internships or activities that can help you test career paths, build experience, and get your foot in the door.

Suburban College Campuses Suburban schools usually offer a taste of the city and country nearby, since you’re close to both. They usually have their own communities with various activities and their own culture.

Ranking College Characteristics

FINANCIAL AID Financial aid is intended to make up the difference between what your family can afford to pay and what college costs. The amount your family is able to contribute is frequently referred to as the Expected Family Contribution. This is determined by whoever is awarding the aid.

Three Main Types of Financial Aid: 1.Grants and Scholarships: Grants don’t have to be repaid and you don’t need to work to earn them. Grant aid comes from federal and state governments and from individual colleges. Scholarships are usually awarded based on merit. 2.Loans: These are aid that must be repaid. Loans that are awarded based on financial need are low-interest loans sponsored by the federal government. 3.Work: Student employment and work-study aid helps students pay for education costs such as books, supplies, and personal expenses.

Financial Aid PROFILE:

The PROFILE is the financial aid application service of the College Board. More than 600 colleges, universities, graduate and professional schools, and scholarship programs use the information collected on the PROFILE to determine eligibility for nonfederal student aid funds. profileonline.collegeboard.com

SCHOLARSHIPS The smaller the geographical area a scholarship covers, the better your chances are of winning. Research local scholarships first. Then research large national scholarships like Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC), National Merit, Gates Millennium, Intel Science, Coca-Cola, and Robert Byrd.

Free scholarship services:

Once you’ve made a decision, notify the other colleges that you are declining their offers of aid so the awards can go to other students.

• www.FastWeb.com • www.FindTuition.com/ Scholarships • www.collegeaidaward.com • www.collegeboard.com/ scholarships

It’s important not to miss deadlines for accepting financial aid. Aid is limited, so if you don’t accept an award on time, it may go to another student.

Average College Costs 2010-11 (www.collegeboard.com) • Four-year private $25,143 • Four-year public $6,585 • Two-year public $2,402

FAFSA: Free Application for Federal Student Aid www.fafsa.ed.gov FAFSA is the financial aid application form you will need to apply for federal and state student grants, work-study, and loans. While the FAFSA may seem lengthy and complex, there are many free resources

to help you navigate the application process.

The Siemens Competition promotes excellence by encouraging students to undertake individual or team research projects in science, mathematics, engineering, and technology or in combinations of these disciplines. It has become the leading science and mathematics researchbased competition for high school students in the United States. Scholarships for winning projects range from $1,000 for regional finalists to $100,000 for national winners. You can compete as an individual or as a member of a team. Scholarship award money will be sent directly to the college or university (selected by the winning students) to cover certain expenses of undergraduate and/or graduate study.

The Pink Paddock, a Lilly Pulitzer® Via Shop is celebrating our new location at 358 Broadway. When Pink Paddock opened in 2005, we hoped Saratoga would embrace Lilly Pulitzer®. It wasn’t long before our original 550 square foot store was brimming with her signature prints. Saratoga loves Lilly Pulitzer just as much as we do and while it took awhile, we have found the perfect spot on Broadway to showcase Lilly just as she should be!! “It started with a juice stand,” begins the Lilly Pulitzer story when the NY socialite eloped with Peter Pulitzer and settled in Palm Beach. Looking for a hobby, she opened a juice stand selling citrus and while her business was a hit, squeezing made a mess of her clothes, so Lilly designed a dress to camouflage the stains. The result: A comfortable shift made of bright, colorful printed cotton in pink, green, yellow and orange–the Classic Shift. Soon Lilly was selling more shifts than juice and when Jackie Kennedy began wearing Lilly, everyone wanted one. Throughout the '60s and '70s, Lilly's pink and green colors became the uniform of the affluent at play and the banner of the resort lifestyle! Come and see for yourself how a Colorful Life can be your lifestyle too!

Practical Tips for a By Karen Totino & Sophie Castro of Green Conscience Photos Provided

Greener Home A ‘greener’ home does not imply that everything has to go and be replaced – on the contrary. The use of biodegradable and non-toxic materials is ideal; yet there are some easy steps you can implement right away that will make a difference. Green living in our homes is largely about being mindful and waste conscious. Choose Natural Home Cleaners Be aware that most traditional cleaning products (wood floor and furniture sprays, carpet cleaners, laundry detergents, dish soaps, silver and shoe polishes, etc.) contain toxic chemicals that not only pollute the air you breathe, but also end up polluting our streams and water supplies. Look for products with the Green Seal label. Minimize Indoor Toxins Unfortunately they can be found pretty much everywhere: from carpets and flooring, wall and window treatments, to furniture and counter tops – even in mattresses and pillows. They are called VOC’s (volatile organic compounds). And they are responsible for many allergies and asthma symptoms. They are also found in air fresheners, room deodorizers and scented candles. Reduce Clutter, Organize, Recycle, Donate Nothing is more soothing than an orderly home where everything has a home for itself. If it’s not the case, consider giving and/or storing things away in order to keep visual clutter to a minimum. Clutter is a major energy drainer. It is important to surround yourself with what you need and what

Use Natural Fibers Consider carpets made of undyed wool, cork flooring, seagrass and sisal rugs. Support the Forestry Stewardship Council by buying furniture and floors certified FSC (guarantees that the wood was harvested from forests managed responsibly and sustainably). Buy organic linens and towels (cotton, bamboo, hemp). Enjoy Indoor Plants They bring in life, growth and oxygen to your home. They soften sharp edges and beautify. They also contribute to a cleaner indoor air. They will greatly benefit from the compost you can generate from your own kitchen scraps. Remember to Save Electricity A power ‘smart’ strip will help as it turns itself off when it senses that appliances are idle. Turn off lights in parts of your house that are not occupied. Install dimmers. Draw the curtains and blinds in the winter that will add insulation. In the warmer months, open windows to create cross-ventilation and bring in fresh air throughout the house – and minimize AC use.

Lawn Care

Calendar

for Saratoga County

As any seasoned Saratoga gardener knows, growing and maintaining a beautiful lawn takes consistent work and vigilance. Without a green thumb and a well planned work schedule, a lawn—or any yardscape for that matter—can change rapidly from month to month, let alone season to season. Below are some easy steps you can follow for a greener and easier to maintain lawn.

Spring Getting your mower ready: Start the lawn-care season by taking care of your mower. Bring in your mower for service in early spring. This helps you beat the rush so your mower is in tip-top shape right when you need to use it. Be sure to sharpen the blade at least once a year. Starting a new lawn from seed: Though fall is the ideal time to start a new lawn from seed, you can also do it in spring. Don't wait until late spring, though: Give your lawn a chance to grow in and get established before summer temperatures arrive.

Attacking crabgrass: Because crabgrass and other annual weeds need to sprout from seeds each year, a well-timed application of pre-emergence herbicide can do wonders for keeping these pests at bay. Spread the pre-emergence herbicide as forsythia blooms in your area start to drop. Aerating: If your lawn doesn't grow well due to compacted soil, springtime -- when your grass is in active growth -- is a great time to aerate. This loosens the soil, allowing grass roots to reach deeper and the soil to absorb moisture better. Mowing: Start mowing once your grass reaches about 3 inches tall. It's best keep most turf types in this region at least 2 inches tall -- this helps the grass ward off weeds and withstand summer drought. Fertilizing: If you feed your lawn a couple of times a year, a light application of lawn food in early spring will help get your lawn off to a great start. Keep it light, though, and use a slow-release or organic fertilizer . Wait to fertilize until your lawn needs mowing for the first time.

Summer Controlling grubs: Attack grubs and keep them from destroying your lovely lawn with a

grub-control product that continues to work throughout the season. Apply your grub control in early June. Mowing: Watch how your lawn grows. During hot, dry periods, it may only need mowing once every two or three weeks (when the grass grows about 3 inches tall). During cooler, moister periods, it may need mowing twice a week. Watering: It's fine to let your grass go dormant during drought. It'll turn brown, but it'll stay alive and then will go green and start growing when the rains come again. If you don't want a brown summer lawn, select drought-tolerant types such as buffalo grass or plan on giving your lawn about 1 inch of water a week.

Fall Fertilizing: If you only fertilize your lawn once a year, fall's the time to do it. In fact, your lawn could take a light application of fertilizer in early fall and again in late fall. Mowing: As temperatures cool, your lawn will start growing faster: You'll likely need to mow regularly through the end of the season. Cleaning up: For a healthy lawn, it's a good idea to clean up fallen leaves. If you don't want to rake up leaves, do several passes over your lawn with a mulching mower. You'll chop up the leaves into fine pieces so they decompose and add to your soil's structure. It's easier and also better for the health of your lawn! Overseeding: Most grasses in this region grow and take best in cool temperatures, making autumn the ideal time to overseed. Give your new grass about a month before your first average frost date so it can get established. Attacking perennial weeds: Most perennial lawn weeds, such as dandelion and creeping Charlie, are most susceptible to spraying in fall when they're winding down and getting ready for winter. Aerating: Cooler autumn temperatures mean your grass will start growing more again -- so it's a great time to aerate to loosen compacted soil.

Choking Prevention and First Aid for Infants and Children

When children begin crawling or eating table foods, parents must be aware of the dangers and risks of choking. Older infants and children less than 5 years of age can easily choke on food and small objects. Choking occurs when food or small objects get caught in the throat and block the airway. This prevents oxygen from getting to the lungs and the brain. When the brain goes without oxygen for more than four minutes, brain damage or even death may occur. Many children die from choking each year. Most children who choke to death are younger than 5 years of age. Two thirds of choking victims are infants younger than 1 year of age. The American Academy of Pediatrics believes that parents and other caregivers can prevent choking. The Academy offers the following choking prevention and first aid information for parents and caregivers of infants and children. Balloons, balls, marbles, pieces of toys, and foods cause the most choking deaths.

Dangerous Foods Do not feed children younger than 4 years of age any round, firm food unless it is chopped completely. Round, firm foods are common choking dangers. When infants and young children do not grind or chew their food well, they may attempt to swallow it whole. The following foods can be choking hazards: • Hot dogs • Nuts and seeds • Chunks of meat or cheese • Whole grapes • Hard, gooey, or sticky candy • Popcorn • Chunks of peanut butter • Raw vegetables • Raisins • Chewing gum Dangerous Household Items Keep the following household items away from infants and children: • Latex balloons

• Coins • Marbles • Toys with small parts • Toys that can be compressed to fit entirely into a child’s mouth • Small balls • Pen or marker caps • Small button-type batteries • Medicine syringes What You Can Do To Prevent Choking • Learn cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) (basic life support). • Be aware that balloons pose a choking risk to children of any age. • Insist that children eat at the table, or at least while sitting down. They should never run, walk, play, or lie down with food in their mouths. • Cut food for infants and young children into pieces no larger than one-half inch and teach them to chew their food well. • Supervise mealtime for infants and young children. • Be aware of older children’s actions. Many choking incidents occur when older brothers or sisters give dangerous foods, toys, or small objects to a younger child. • Avoid toys with small parts and keep other small household items out of reach of infants and young children. • Follow the age recommendations on toy packages. Age guidelines reflect the safety of a toy based on any possible choking hazard as well as the child’s physical and mental abilities at various ages. • Check under furniture and between cushions for small items that children could find and put in their mouths. • Do not let infants and young children play with coins. Call Today! Contact your American Red Cross office or the American Heart Association to find out about classes offered in your area. Most of the classes teach basic first aid, CPR, and emergency prevention along with what to do for a choking infant or child. Your pediatrician also can help you understand these steps and talk to you about the importance of supervising mealtime and identifying dangerous foods and objects. The information contained in this publication should not be used as a substitution for the medical care and advice of your pediatrician. There may be variations in treatment that your pediatrician may recommend based on individual facts and circumstances. Reprinted from the YMCA's Super Sitter Handouts

Farmers’ Market

From Farm to Table

Supporters of farmers' markets world-wide feel that since locally-grown, naturally produced meat and produce does not travel as far to get to the “point of purchase,” the difference in mileage saves fossil fuels, allows consumers to buy the freshest possible produce and creates a better bond between sustainably-managed farms and the local community. The Saratoga community couldn't agree more… What started as a small, grass roots effort in the spring of 1978 to bring the products of 7-8 local vendors to the streets of downtown Saratoga Springs has grown into a highly acclaimed farmers' market association with over 55 vendors, it's own web presence, year-round location and loyal supporters. As well as the Saratoga Farmers' Market Association sites, there are now “farmers' markets” popping up in parks and parking lots all over Saratoga County. For a way to buy locally grown produce, scratch-made baked goods and foods, hand-crafted items by local artisans, enjoy the sense of community one gets while “going to the market” and help promote small family farms, please visit one of our local farmers' markets. Saratoga Springs Summer Market May - October Wednesday 3-6 pm • Saturday 9-1 pm High Rock Park, Downtown Winter Market November - April Saturday 9 - 1 pm location to be announced see website for more information www.saratogafarmersmarket.org thesaratogalife.com (for a list of special events)

Ballston Spa June - Sept Thursday 3-6 pm • Saturday 9- Noon Wiswall Park, Downtown Ballston Spa Acoustic Music every Saturday For more information, please call Cyndi Pastore @ 885-6693 Ballston Spa Business & Professional Association
