lifetime cap on many insurance policies. Taylor’s Mom Amy said that day, an already stressful situation got worse. The family realized that Taylor was close to hitting the cap and had to begin being selective about what treat-

We at Care and Share would like to thank everyone for their help and support to keep us going yet another year. This last year was one of the busiest years we’ve had in the 30 years we’ve been open. The Lord keeps telling us to keep it going. I want to thank my help for all that they do for the Care & Share and everything they do for Aggie and I. Aggie was injured at the Care & Share last year and I have been ill since April. We unfortunately will not be able to be there all the time but our help is wonderful and can handle whatever needs done. I am only a phone call away if I am needed. If you or someone you know needs anything, just stop on in. You do not have to show any proof of income. We have clothing, furniture and household items. We are opening April 6. We will be open Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to noon and Fridays from 2 to 5 p.m. We can always use monetary donations. We are non-profit and the donations keep us running. We love you all. Thanks again for everything you have done for us. Judy A. Knecht

first trek to Catawba/Port Clinton came about mostly by accident. Thirty-five years later, here we are and yes, I was lucky. For many years I had followed a tradition of sending flowers to all my “girls� on Valentine’s Day. I usually remembered weeks in advance and made the arrangements with Mary. Sometimes I forgot I had even done it and then was reminded when the calls came to my mobile phone with words of thanks. Now and then I recall one year that I just wasn’t in the mood. Probably some irritating family moment had occurred and I lost my sensibilities. I do not remember what year this was but over the years I do know that I regret that I had that moment and made that decision. You see life is full of choices. So on to my point. We only have so many chances to make a difference, to impact a life and just maybe lift someone’s spirits. So my advice, even when all the stars are not necessarily aligned, is to send the flowers. Let a family member or a friend know that yes, you love them, are proud of them and care for them. It just may make the difference and what the heck, it could turn a less-than-desirable day into the day of their lives. I have this happen now and then. I do not deserve it but somehow God knows I need a lift and there is my daughter, wife, a friend like little Natalie, her mother, Millie or Tom to make me smile and face the day. Thanks Catawba and Port Clinton for giving this some thought. Just a reminder: send the flowers. Mike Schenck, Catawba Island

Humane Society

The Humane Society of Ottawa County wishes to express gratitude to our local VFW Post No. 2480. They hosted our recent Spaghetti Dinner and their support was evident by their participation, heading up our 50/50 raffles and the Hillbilly Horse Races (they were something to see!). All of you who participated in our Chinese Raffle made it a huge success. Thanks to all who donated the raffle items. Irene Phipps and Linda Dansard did a great job obtaining items and setting everything up with the help of Tracy Brown and June Ireland. We’d also like to thank Ala Carte for donating the spaghetti sauce, Chefsbest for the delicious salads, Nikoll Laney for donating some of our bread, along with Chris Marcinko, Walmart for the spaghetti and Wanda Kershner for all those scrumptious desserts! And — not to be forgotten — the wonderful band, Denny R N The Smooth Groove for donating their time and talent to our cause! You all helped raise almost $1,500 which will go a long way towards caring for the animals in our shelter. Thanks, again, to all the members of VFW Post 2480 and everyone who showed their support.

Food pantry

During these tough economic times, there are many of the working poor in the community who need extra help with putting food on the table. If you live in the 43452 zip code, which includes Port Clinton and three surrounding townships, you may qualify for food from the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry. The pantry is open to all qualified individuals or families based solely on your monthly income. The food panty is located in back of the Knights of Columbus Hall, 109 E. Perry St. The pantry is open bi-monthly on Saturdays throughout the year. Our choice pantry allows each family to select food items from stocked shelves according to their needs. The community has an opportunity to help raise funds to replenish the food pantry from March 1-April 30. All gifts of cash, checks and food items donated to the pantry during this time period will help earn a percentage of the $1,000,000 that The Feinstein Foundation divides nationwide among hunger fighting agencies. Whatever you can do to help will be greatly appreciated. This is the 14th year that the foundation has been helping people across the country combat hunger. If you need help and think you may qualify, or if you wish to make a donation, contact Ann Heckerd at 419-732-1870. Elaine Verkin and the staff of St. Vincent DePaul

Product of Oregon

AVAILABLE THIS FRIDAY!

The Great Morel has graced us with its presence in 2011. For most of us we must still wait as the winter hiatus comes to a close, yet there are those few who are beginning to experience the delight. Most must continue to wait in patience for this glorious rite of spring, which brings us the Great Morel. This often unexplainable and euphoric ritual in which we annual partake will soon be heading our way. As it news, our conversation of the harsh winter many endured will be replace with conversation of the coming adventures of foraging as we wait for the appearance of the Great Morel. The Great Morel wishes everyone the best of luck as this ephemeral of nature we have come to know draws upon us.

Member of local unit gets Coast Guard commendation The Commanding Officer of Port Security Unit 309 recently presented Chief Paul Cormier with the Coast Guard Commendation Medal for outstanding achievement while serving with the Department of Homeland Security Haiti Integrated Response Team from January to March of 2010. Cormier was on the island and survived the devastating earthquake that killed more than 230,000 people. He immediately participated in the recovery effort, as his knowledge of the local area and fluency in the Creole

language proved critical to the success of a significant number of humanitarian missions. He led numerous efforts, including performing translation during a highprofile media event on the USNS Comfort, assisting US and Haitian immigration officials in the processing and treatment of over 14,000 Haitian-Americans preparing to be evacuated to the US, and delivering much needed food and medical relief to rural areas. Chief Cormier remains a part of PSU 309 and is drilling with the unit in Port Clinton.

their story. Gilleland was hit by a passing vehicle while trying to board the school bus in front of her home Sept. 28, 2009. She talked about her treatment and surgeries, the rod in her leg and the difficulty of learning to walk again. But for Gilleland, the emotional scars are even more harder to deal with than the physical ones. Her brother, Colin, screamed before she was hit and saw the impact. Gilleland said she could see the tears in his eyes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having a memory like this is too hard for me and my family and friends,â&#x20AC;? the 18-year-old victim said. Pope and Gillelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stories are the first in a growing list of students killed or injured on the road. In just more than a year, members of the Port Clinton City School District have been involved in five accidents on Ohio 53 including two that took the lives of students. According to Superintedent Pat Adkins, the former spirit rock on the high school campus has become a memorial rock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has to stop,â&#x20AC;? he said. The school administration, with the help of the student Leadership Council, has been circulating a petition to show its support for action. The Bay Township Trustees also have such a petition. Together, more than 1,000 signatures had been compiled before Mondayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting even began. The meeting was recorded and officials say they will send that and the petitions to ODOT after attempts to get a representative from the department to come out Monday failed. ODOT officials have said they will analyze the road this summer and look at the crash list. According to Park, this is too little to late. In the meantime, the State Highway Patrol will kick off a six-week enforcement blitz on the road April 1. Edge said driving violations like crossing the center line and failing to maintain an assured clear distance ahead have been blamed in many of the crashes and those are the things troopers will be targeting. The patrol and trustees have recommended the addition of no passing zones and increased signage at intersections along the road. Those at the meeting didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to add their own: widening the road, lowering the speed and adding double stripes in no-passing zones were among the suggestions. According to Trustee Dan Mulligan, any changes that can increase safety should be pursued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a small chance that a little bit of yellow paint and signs along the side of the road can make a difference, it should be done,â&#x20AC;?

Legal Lines

IRAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S and charities Anyone working with our office knows it is our challenge and goal to never go through the probate process. Ohio law has become very conducive to that end. Through the proper titling of assets, most property can be transferred to the next generation automatically at death. An automatic transfer is not always the best way for tax reasons. Several years ago a lady asked to have her will reviewed. One of her greatest concerns was to ensure that her church would receive a bequest at her death. In her will she gave $100,000 to her church. Her largest money asset was her Individual Retirement Account naming her children as the beneficiaries. She was told that the charitable bequest needed to be in her will to ensure that the bequest would take place. This plan would have cost her children the following: â&#x20AC;˘ The full and complete probate of her estate at a cost of 2 to 5 percent of the value of her assets and take three to 15 months to complete. â&#x20AC;˘ The IRA money would first be subject to three or maybe four taxes: Ohio Estate Tax, Federal Income Tax, Ohio Income Tax and maybe Federal Estate tax. â&#x20AC;˘ The estate or children would have to first pay all of the above income taxes on the money before making the distribution to the church. All IRA money is taxed before distribution except if paid directly to a charity. â&#x20AC;˘ Considerable paperwork would be necessary to transfer assets from the estate to the children and also paperwork to transfer the IRA to the children. Charities are exempt from income tax. Any IRA monies that would pass

Shirt Savers all the rage

directly from the IRA to the church would do so free from any Federal or State income tax. Under her old will and her IRA designation, the $100,000 would have passed to the children first. Her children are very successful and were in a 35 percent income tax bracket considering federal and Ohio tax. It would have cost the children $35,000 to transfer the $100,000 to the church. The solution was not complicated. We contacted the custodian of the IRA account and created separate account beneficiaries. First, we made the church a beneficiary for $100,000. The charitable beneficiary received all of the money without having to pay any federal or state income tax. They also received this money immediately without going through a long, drawn-out probate process. We then separated the balance of the IRA account into three separate accounts for each of the children whose ages ranged from 22 to 32. Each child was able to stretch withdrawal of their account funds over their life expectancy. The 10-year difference in age created a tremendous increase in value for the youngest child. They in effect were able to stretch withdrawal of these funds over their 60-plus life expectancy. Partial deferral of paying tax on this money can turn $20,000 into $80,000. Through the use of transfer on death, life estate and proper beneficiary designations, we did not need to file a will and go through the probate process. Today, a new temporary law has allowed distribution direct to charity while you are alive without tax consequences. This will be the subject of another article. The size of the account does not matter. If a person wants to ben-

efit their church, school or other charitable cause with a donation of $1,000, the use of a designated account within their IRA will accomplish that end. You cannot combine your children and the charity as joint beneficiaries without adverse consequences. Each designation must be separate. It is important to see in print your beneficiary designation to insure that the desired result is in place. You can have this distribution at your death or upon the death of your spouse if created correctly. This article is a result of seeing how a proactive approach to estate planning saved time, money and inconvenience for the next generation. This individual did pass away and the stated course of action was completed within one month of her passing. QQQ

ODNR predicts good year for fishing COLUMBUS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lake Erie anglers should experience another year of diverse fishing opportunities during 2011, according to biologists with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Wildlife. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you consider the variety of species and sizes of fish that are available to Ohio anglers, we are optimistic about Lake Erie fishing prospects this year,â&#x20AC;? said Roger Knight, Lake Erie fisheries program manager for the Division of Wildlife. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weather is always the wild card on Lake Erie, but anglers who take advantage of seasonal fishing opportunities have good odds at catching walleye, yellow perch, smallmouth bass, white bass and steelhead, often in combination during many trips.â&#x20AC;? Lake Erie walleye and yellow perch fisheries are managed through an interagency quota system that involves Ontario, Michigan, Pennsylvania, New York and Ohio jurisdictions. Each jurisdiction regulates their catches to comply with their agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quotas and minimize the risk of over-fishing these species. Quotas for the upcoming fishing season are determined through consensus agreement by these jurisdictions through the Lake Erie Committee of the Great Lakes Fishery Commission, which were just recently announced for

#



2011. Ohioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s walleye and yellow perch bag limits were set after the March 25 LEC quota announcement, and will go into effect May 1. As a result of the 2011 quota allocation, the walleye bag limit will be six from May 1 to Feb. 29, 2012, and four from March 1, 2012, to April 30, 2012. A 15-inch minimum size limit is in effect during the entire season. The daily bag limit for walleye remains four fish per person during April 2011. As a result of the 2011 quota allocation, the yellow perch bag limit will be 30 perch per angler in all Ohio waters from May 1 to April 30, 2012. There is no minimum size limit on yellow perch. Lake Erie anglers can find walleye and yellow perch bag limit information at ODNR offices, in special publications at bait and tackle shops, and on the Web at wildohio.com. Anglers are reminded that fishing conditions on Lake Erie can change hourly and adjustments are often necessary to improve success. Anglers should take into account factors such as water temperature, cloud cover, water clarity, boat traffic, wave action, structures, currents, and the amount of baitfish in the area. Anglers are also reminded to carefully monitor Lake Erie weather and to seek safe harbor before

storms approach. During the season, updated Lake Erie fishing reports are available online at wildohio.com and by calling 1-888-HOOKFISH. Division of Wildlife staff members are available from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at our research station facilities at Sandusky, 419-625-8062, for Western Basin information.

Career-Based Intervention students Jonathan Fletcher and Kayla Woods make donations to the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry.

Coupons for the Community Career Based Intervention students at Port Clinton High School are working on unique project that combines service and learning. Through Coupons for the Community, the students are helping to fill food pantry shelves while learning how to save. The program was started in February with a donation of Kroger $250 gift cards from United Way and the Ottawa County Transitional Housing/Ottawa County Saves Project. So far, only $104 has been spent to purchase more than $330 of products by combining coupons with sales. The students have saved 69 percent on items that have been donated to the St. Vincent de Paul food pantry, located in back of the Knights of Columbus Hall, 109 E. Perry St. The pantry is open bi-weekly on Saturdays throughout the year. Coupons for the Community uses coupons to help stretch the limited dollars available from private and government funding, which means the students can provide local food pantries with more food and non-edible essentials like toiletries and hygiene products for members of thecommunities who need it most. Many of these items are not covered by food stamps: soap, laundry detergent and toilet paper etc, yet they are all necessities. CBI students collect coupons from newspaper inserts and other sources and match the coupons with the stores sale prices to get the best price. When possible, students use monetary donations to purchase food and non-edible essentials. Students will also put together coupon packets with a list of â&#x20AC;&#x153;dealsâ&#x20AC;? for families to use. To help the program, donations of newspaper coupon inserts, store coupons or Kroger gift cards can be made to Port Clinton High School, Attn: MaryLou Nellett, CBI Instructor.

Financial Focus

Are your investments getting enough exercise?

Now that spring is here, you may find it easier to get outside to run, bike or take part in other physical pursuits that you enjoy. As you know, the more active you are, the more efficiently your body will work. And the same can hold true for your investments â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the more exercise they get, the more potential to work on your behalf. Just how do investments get â&#x20AC;&#x153;exerciseâ&#x20AC;?? Through lots of activity. And you can keep your investments active in at least two ways: through systematic investing and through dividend reinvestment. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s take a look at both these techniques. When you engage in systematic investing, commonly called â&#x20AC;&#x153;dollar cost averaging,â&#x20AC;? you are continuously putting your money â&#x20AC;&#x153;in motion.â&#x20AC;? Essentially, you put the same amount of money into the same investments at regular intervals. So, for example, you might decide to invest $100 per month, in Company ABC stock. To impose this investment discipline on yourself, you could even have the money sent directly from your checking or savings account. Of course, since the price of ABC stock, like that of all stocks, is constantly changing, your $100 investment will buy different numbers of shares each month. This can work to your advantage, because when the stock price of ABC goes down, your $100 will buy more shares. When the price goes up, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll automatically be a smart enough â&#x20AC;&#x153;shopperâ&#x20AC;? to buy fewer shares, just as youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d typically buy less of something when its price goes up. Over time, systematic investing typically results in an aver-

age cost per share thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lower than it would be if you were to make sporadic lump sum investments. If you can lower the cost of investing, this may help boost your investment returns. This also can be an effective way to fund your retirement account(s) each year. (Keep in mind, though, that even systematic investing canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t guarantee a profit or prevent a loss in declining markets. Also, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to have the financial resources available to keep investing through up and down markets.) Dividend reinvestment is similar to systematic investing in that it allows you to build more shares of an investment. But when you reinvest dividends, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have to take money from other sources to increase your shares â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you simply have to request that a stock or a mutual fund, instead of paying you a dividend in cash, reinvest the dividend right back into that same stock or mutual fund. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an effortless way of adding shares. Similar to dollar-cost averaging, dividend reinvestment imposes an investment discipline on you â&#x20AC;&#x201D; you automatically keep putting money in the market during up and down periods. (Keep in mind that dividends can be increased, decreased or totally eliminated) Exercising your investment dollars in these ways can help you go a long way toward keeping your portfolio in good shape â&#x20AC;&#x201D; enabling you to make healthy progress toward your important long-term goals QQQ This article was written by Edward Jones for use by your local Edward Jones Financial Advisor.
