Benefit planned for sick little girl

A growing problem

By PAULA YOUNG Proud Grandma She’s my only child’s first child; born on April 17, 2007 what would have been my parents’ 59th anniversary and named for my late mother, Sarah Elizabeth. From the moment I watched her daddy cut the cord; and with her first breath she created a smitten grandma, as well as a new little family, I knew that my life would be changed forever by this amazing little girl. I knew that if she possessed only a portion of the traits and characteristics that I loved and miss so much in her namesake that she’d be a very special person, indeed. We had no idea how special. It soon became apparent that she wasn’t reaching her milestones in a timely manner; and shortly after her first birthday we were punched in the gut with her diagnosis. Her developmental delays had a name, Pitt Hopkins Syndrome. PHS is caused by a deletion or mutation on the 18th chromosome; and brings with it a variety of manifestations, including delays in cognitive and physical development, low muscle tone, petite stature, digestive issues and seizures; and that’s just the top of the list. The syndrome is rare; and the outward physical traits are subtle. They include a wider, slightly flattened bridge of the nose, cupped ears, Cupid ’s bow mouth, and a gap between the two front teeth. We knew that with her dedicated army of “ists”--neurologist, gastroenterologist, speech-, occupational-, and physical therapists,

Excessive phosphorus to blame for Harmful Algae Blooms By ROBERTA REDFERN The high concentrations of harmful algae in Lake Erie and bodies of water around the state are going to get worse before they get better, officials say. “When temperatures cool down, this kind of algae dies, bloats and comes to the surface. Because it’s still warm, we haven’t seen the algae die back yet,” said John Hageman, laboratory manager for the OSU stone lab. “Right now, the water is looking well. But we will probably see it happen as soon as we see regular temperatures drop. Then, we will likely see that extensive green slime on the surface.” And when you see it, officials say, is when you really need to avoid it. This type of harmful algae blooms — referred to as HABs — goes through three stages, Hageman explained: healthy algae distributed throughout the water; sick algae that comes to the surface when it dies; and then the dead algae that plummets to the bottom. It’s the sick algae sitting on the surface in stage 2 that is the most harmful, he said. The lab is waiting to see when in the next couple of weeks it will occur. The annual Put-in-Bay harbor cleanup scheduled for Monday has been called off in case it happens sooner than later. Ohio has seen excessive phosphorous run-off levels into the lake and other bodies of water this year. “We are talking about things that are mostly native — that actually belong

In the know East Harbor State Park is currently under a Bloom Advisory, meaning water-goers should exercise caution and avoid contact with any algae. To educate members of the public about the risks of Harmful Algae Blooms, Ohio Sea Grant partnered with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources and the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to produce a four-page fact sheet at:

Printed versions are also available at all Ohio Sea Grant Extension offices and at the OEPA Division of Surface Water’s Inland Lakes Program. More information about advisories at different parks and what each advisory means can be found at: tabid/22957/Default.aspx. Additional information and data on Harmful Algal Blooms is online at: www. or www.

Algae education


Bottom line — common sense and education on the algae issue prevail, said John Hageman, of Ohio Sea Grant: • If an advisory sign is posted, or if the water is pea green, has a floating green scum or is discolored, stay away. • Babies and children should be kept out of the water, period, since they have a smaller body mass and will absorb harmful poisons more quickly than adults. • Pets should be strictly supervised around water; they shouldn’t be allowed to drink it, and keep them out of it if there is green scum or water discoloration. • Older adults or adults with health is-

sues should be especially careful. • Sick algae tends to drift into quiet areas where there is not a lot of wind — coves, around docks, etc — so avoid those areas. • Concentrations aren’t high enough in this area to affect the fish population, so eating them is safe. • Drinking water systems are being tested routinely throughout this issue, and have been deemed safe to drink. • Symptoms of HABs include: tremors, blistering, skin irritation, asthmatic symptoms and more seriously, liver damage and death.

Late summer fun Another big late summer weekend is here. Saturday is the third annual Gem Beach Rocks event and the weather looks great. There will have four great bands, starting off with The Travelin’ Lounge Lizards, followed by Wally and the Beavs, Paradise Island and finally the Parrots of the Caribbean, a Jimmy Buffet tribute band. This event started in 2008 when my wife Mary Alice and I were Ottawa County United Way Campaign chairmen. So many people from all over northern Ohio remember the glory days of Gem Beach. Some can still … kind of … do “The Beach” — a dance we invented to go with

In the late 50s and early 60s many Port Clinton schools were K-8. The present high school was built in 1963, before there was a middle school. So students went right from Bataan, Immaculate Conception and Gypsum Schools right to PCHS. Anyway, there will be lots of prizes given

Beacon Bits

Saturday morning autumn sunrise

Six o’clock and there’s only a little light in the eastern sky. I look out the window at it and then get started with my day …

6:30 and there’s a big red patch, a beautiful, intense pink-red low on the horizon while I’m starting some laundry and folding clothes … 6:45 and I look at the sky again, the color has lightened a little but it has crept higher in the eastern sky and has spread outward, left and right, in both directions. There’s a brisk cool breeze coming in through the southern windows and wafting into the house. At 7 o’clock it carries in the first faint crowing of a rooster. In 10 minutes the crowing has grown stronger and louder. It sounds good. By 7:15 the red color is gone; now the sky is a pale buttery yellow. At 7:30 I look again and the sun has appeared. I take a letter to the mailbox and walk to where I can see it around the woods. It is blinding. And very beautiful. I go back into the house after waving at a passing neighbor. The sun’s up; the day has truly begun. I unload the dishwasher and put in another load of laundry. I like the cool brisk mornings. Later in the day I looked up the time of sunrise. It was 7:22 a.m. EDT on Saturday. Sunset was at 8 p.m. A further note — by 9 p.m. on Sunday night it seemed very dark. The

days are definitely shortening down now. nnn

For the first time this week I’ve seen autumn leaves coming down. And sometimes they are skittering along in the breeze. The back deck had to be cleared of leaves twice this weekend. And Golden Rod and BlackEyed Susans are thriving in the fields. Wild purple asters make a nice accompaniment to the vivid orangey-yellow. And the corn looks almost ready to pick. Did it produce well, so early? Or did it just dry up for lack of moisture? About 40 miles south of here I saw definite colors changes in the foliage on the trees in the woodlots. There is just a little bit of red and some yellow. It won’t be long now until fall colors are upon us. nnn

Did you know that you can recycle aluminum cans for a great cause? There is an organization called “Aluminum Cans for Burned Children.” Your empty beverage cans are taken to be recycled and then the money for the cans is sent to ACBC at St Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo. There the proceeds are used for the special needs of children who have been severely burned and are being treated there. Children sometimes have need of special equipment for recovery or rehabilitation and the money goes to purchase those things or address other specific needs of the children. It is very easy to recycle your cans. The Portage Fire District (the station is on Water Street in Oak Harbor across the street from the Community Market) collects them. The collecting area is behind the building and can be accessed at any time. Put your cans into some kind of plastic bags, tied shut and then just toss the bags across the fence into the holding area. The fire department volunteers will take them to be recycled, collect the money and forward it to ACBC. It’s easy as pie … and you will have the knowledge that you are helping the environment and also of knowing the money does good things. nnn

Speaking of fire departments, why not mark your calendars now for the upcoming chicken barbecue hosted by Bay Township Volunteer Fire Department? It’s such good chicken, cooked over an outdoor open charcoal fire. And the cost is so reasonable — only $7 for a quarter chicken dinner and $8 for a half. Date is Sunday, Sept 26; time is 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. or until sold out and place is the township hall and fire station about 4 miles west of Port Clinton on Fremont Road. Proceeds from these local fundraisers go to help buy equipment for the protection of township citizens and property. nnn

A good friend comes from the Cleveland area once a year to spend the day with me. Each year I think of something good to see or do. Friday, Sept. 10, was the day — and a spectacular day it was to be out and about in the Great Lake Erie Vacationland. She picked me up at the office in midmorning. Our first destination was to go see something my friend had been reading about — floating houses. First we went out to Coastal Marine where a salesman showed us all around one of the two-story floating houses that are docked there. We had a good tour, inside and out, and asked lots of questions about everything from cost, winterizing (or not), utilities, etc. It’s a neat concept, like the houseboats that I’ve seen — only a lot classier. These are “docked” along a river cut there and a driveway leads to them. They overlook an expanse of river facing across to the Jackknife railroad bridge. Then we went out behind Lakefront Marina to see the floating houses there. This is “gated” so we couldn’t get too close, but could see they were on a wheel-like hub with a gazebo in the middle. We also looked at the condos along the lakefront. They command a great view — all the way around from the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Station to the Bass Islands. Our “real” destination, we decided, would be the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge. We went to the new visitor’s center and talked to volunteer, Port Clintonite Martha Dykes, who gave us a little background on the place and some good reading materials. Then we toured the visitor’s area completely. This includes a third floor observation platform (with complimentary binoculars) that overlooks the marsh. The ground floor area includes a little theater with a 15-minute video presentation with the history of the Marsh and it starts with glaciers and the ice ages — down to the present time and current conditions. We also took a very pleasant walk along the boardwalk, looking at trees, listening to birds, hearing frogs plop into the water (and seeing some little chartreuse green ones — so cute), watching squirrels, looking at animal tracks and seeing some waterfowl. It was all pretty neat. We were each given a free book, “Lake Erie Public Access Guidebook.” This is great. It is divided into sections — all the counties in Ohio that surround the lake. The places that allow access to the general public are listed. The book is new. It is published by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources. The book is beautifully illustrated with color photographs on every page. There are at least 25 listings for Ottawa County. nnn

The thing I like best about the book is its unique cover. It shows a foreground view of marshy shoreline, a middle view of a large expanse of the lake and then, in the heavens, “clouds” that have been shaped like the southern coast of our Great Lake. It’s spectacular.

Two-party tions


Is there any value in voting in our two-party elections? When you understand value requires alternatives, maybe not. Both Republicans and Democrats are comfortable with the warfare welfare state. Both parties embrace the progressive income tax, the central bank and public education the second, fifth and 10th planks of the Communist Manifesto. Neither party seems restrained by their enumerated powers in the Constitution. Both parties are lax in abolishing unconstitutional agencies like the EPA, DEA, FEMA, FDA and the rest of the alphabet soup group. Both would rather have corporatism, crony capitalism and interventionism rather than allowing the real economic engine the free market to work its magic. Both parties run massive deficits and are willing to kick the can down the road to let our children deal with the consequences. Both parties base new law on horrendous decisions by the Supreme Court rather than basing it on the spirit of the Constitution. And the list goes on. If your vote implies value where there is none won’t those elected give you more of the same? Why wouldn’t you consider third parties or explore alternatives or not vote? I know there are those who believe it is your duty to vote. However, if you do not know the difference between a constitutional limited republic and a democracy or if you think the purpose of government is to take care of your needs your duty is to stay home. Don’t vote! Jim Boehm Port Clinton

Help available for eligible families Apply now for school aid, Fuel for Work assistance The Ottawa County Department of Job and Family Services has announced two programs this month to help eligible families. The first is designed to assist with the purchase of school clothing, the other to assist employed residents with their commuting costs. The school clothing program is for Ottawa County students enrolled in grades K-12, in a public or private school. A $200 gift card per student will be given to purchase outerwear, underwear, footware, or apparel suitable for classroom wear and/or approved school uniforms. Gift cards will be available from Walmart, Macy’s, Elder Beerman, Sears and J.C. Penney, on a firstcome, first-serve basis. Applications will be sent home with students in cooperation with all the schools within the County. Also in September, a Fuel for Work program is available to eligible adults working outside of the home. A $200 gift card to either Speedway or Marathon will be issued to eligible adult household members that work a minimum of 30 hours per week, outside of the home. Cards are to be used for fuel or automotive needs only. Applications for either program are available at the Ottawa County Department of Job and Family Services, in Oak Harbor,

family practice Jessica Crow, DO

and the Sutton Center in Port Clinton. Both programs are made possible with the use of federal TANF funds allocated to eligible Ottawa County families. Eligibility for the programs includes a household with at least one dependent minor child, and combined earnings that are less than 200 percent of the federal poverty standard. This means that a family of four’s monthly income cannot exceed $3,675, to be eligible for the program. Previous use of PRC funding does not affect eligibility for these special programs. Applications for this and other programs may be obtained at, and returned to, the Ottawa County Department of Job and Family Services, located at 8043 W. Ohio 163, Oak Harbor, OH 43449. Applications are available now and must be returned with required documents to the Ottawa County Department of Job and Family Services by Sept. 30. For information, contact the agency at 1-800-6651677 or 419898-3688.

6A Thursday, September 16, 2010 ALGAE from 1A here,” said Eugene Braig, assistant director of Ohio Sea Grant. “But when there are too many nutrients in the water — in this case phosphorous — it causes problems. The nutrients that contribute to HABs and other algal blooms (mostly phosphorus and nitrogen) come from many sources, including agriculture, lawn fertilizers, wastewater treatment plants, sewer overflows, leaking septic systems and precipitation. So while experts can pinpoint the culprit, the sources of the offender and the solution are a little more difficult to isolate, they say. “Back in the 1970s, Lake Erie was plagued pretty seriously with these issues. But at that time, they pinpointed sources … like from a pipe coming out of a factory,” Braig said. “Now it’s coming in from all over the landscape. It’s a similar problem, like before, but the source is different — we can’t point a finger.” The Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement and the Clean Water Act came along shortly after the water issues in the 1970s, Braig said. This time — as phosphorous levels progressively climb annually — a Phosphorous Task Force created about two years ago is taking a serious look at what is happening.


“Heidelberg University has been taking phosphorous readings for 30 years or more and the readings seen this year are the highest ever,” Hageman said. “There is no reason to think next year won’t be higher yet. We are not likely to see less runoff unless we see significantly less rainfall.” “It’s going to be really hard to make any corrections for next year because no one knows where to start. It’s going to have to be everyone (being vigilant).” Because of the heightened presence of the algae toxins, the Ohio EPA and other organizations have been testing drinking water systems routinely. And although Put-in-Bay officials asked residents to conserve water earlier this month and even brought in additional water because it is taking longer to treat the water because the algae clogs the filters, officials say the water is safe to drink. “To offset the algae problem, we went from an 18-hour (water treatment process) day to a 24-hour day and that’s been working well,” said Ottawa County Sanitary Engineer Kelly Frey, whose department oversees the production of drinking water to many of the county’s residents through a regional water system. “The water is fine to drink, it meets EPA requirements.”


John Schaffner, President of Schaffner Publications, Inc., owners of The Beacon and North Coast Business Journal, recently presented a check for $2,000 to United Way in Ottawa County from proceeds taken in during the Wine Tasting Kickoff event for the 2010 Catawba/Marblehead Parade of Homes.

SARAH from 1A and more; she would become all that she could be. We don’t see how we could love her any more if she were a “typical” child. Another beautiful day in April, just shy of her third birthday, we learned that our sweet Sarah was in Dayton Children’s Hospital with two separate masses surrounding her jawbone and suspicious spots on each lung. The metastasis to the lungs forced the pediatric oncologist (now there’s two words that shouldn’t ever have to be seen together!) to diagnose “Stage IV” rhabdomyosarcoma. When given the expected survival rate, our daughter Renee said “But cancer hasn’t met MY daughter yet.” So far, the little girl has responded very well to the treatment. We were told that her treatment journey would be 54 weeks long; consisting of chemotherapy with five weeks of radiation in the midst of it. Renee and Aaron were given a “road map”, a tentative idea of what drug or drug combination would be administered when. The map indicates which administrations require admittance, and which would be outpatient clinic visits. However, the map doesn’t show the various delays or detours. For example, Sarah has to be sufficiently hydrated before the drugs can be administered, and it can take hours to get enough fluids in her via feeding tube, sippy cup and IV. Also, there are the unexpected hospitalizations when the little girl’s counts are low, or fever is high. A transfusion or infection means at least a 48-hour stay in the corner suite on the oncology floor of Dayton Children’s. Since

one parent is required at the child’s bedside at all times, they often tag-team and juggle Sarah’s little brother Drew; trying to achieve the right balance of time together as a family, and some semblance of normal sleep- and play-time at home for him. In the midst of our care and concern for her; and her parents’ emotional and physical exhaustion, Sarah is a literal and figurative bright spot. In her hospital issue yellow flannel pajamas, her sunny smile lightens heavy hearts. She seems to be a docile patient, taking in stride some of the procedures that a typical kid may protest. If she’s feeling just right, she’ll sit up straight in her big hospital bed, clap and giggle out loud at the theme song of “Hannah Montana” or the familiar “swing and a miss” of a Reds’ baseball game. Of course, the excellent care, life-saving meds and peripherals like travel, parking and lengthy stays and meals away from home don’t come without cost. In order to help with expenses, there will be a “Sarah’s Angels” benefit event from 3 to 7 p.m. Oct. 9 at Nugent’s Canal Yacht Club.

Dr. Seibert to offer Stress Reduction Program at Magruder Dr. Keith Seibert will offer his Stress Reduction and Relaxation Program in the Magruder Hospital Conference Center from Sept. 27–Nov. 15. This is an eight-week program that runs every Monday evening from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 6. There is no cost to participate in the program, but the book “Full Catastrophe Living,” by John Zabot-Zinn is required. This program is for people who are looking for personal and effective ways to handle stress, anxiety, pain, illness and life in general. While a doctor’s order is not needed, as with any new program or intervention, it is a good idea to discuss with a physician. This program should in no way replace any current course of therapy that a person and their physician are pursuing. Seibert, has worked with relaxation and meditation since 1977 and studied with Jon Kabat-Zinn and Saki Santorelli at the Omega Institute in 1993 at the first offering of the professional certification course. The program initiated in the 1980s at the Department of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center where research continues to demonstrate the power of the program. It is

designed to help individuals become more stress hardy so they are able to more consciously “respond” to stressors instead of “reacting” in ways which may have previously been detrimental. One of the main proven and beneficial outcomes is the ability of the participant to “self regulate” chronic pain. Participants will learn and practice relaxation techniques which may be targeted to any area of the body especially areas of disease, dysfunction or pain. Typically participants are calmer, less tense, less quick to react, more peaceful and more energetic. Registration deadline is Sept. 24 and can be made by calling Seibert’s office at 419-732-3189 or email to For information on the program, visit

Lakers get first win By J. PATRICK EAKEN The Danbury Lakers improved to 1-1 on the season with a 3320 non-league victory over visiting Fostoria St. Wendelin Friday night. St. Wendelin got on the board first on a one-yard touchdown with 1:29 remaining in the first quarter. A two-point conversion attempt failed, and the Mohawks led 6-0. But Danbury came back with three second quarter touchdowns. Junior Lucas Kennedy threw a 29-yard touchdown pass to Corey Schenk with 8:36 remaining in the first half, but the conversion kick failed and the game remained tied at six points apiece. St. Wendelin got on the board next on a 29 yard touchdown run with 6:58 left in the half. Again, a two-point conversion pass at-

tempt fell incomplete, and the Mohawks led 12-6. Danbury came back with a 14yard touchdown run by Kennedy with 3:46 left in the half, but for the fourth time in the game the conversion failed, and the game remained tied at 12-all. But Kennedy scored on a twoyard with 236 seconds left, and the Lakers had their first lead. Kennedy followed with a twopoint conversion run, and Danbury led 20-12 at halftime. St. Wendelin regrouped to the tie the score again with 5:57 remaining in the third quarter. A 47-yard pass resulted six points for the Mohawks. The two-point conversion run succeeded, and the Mohawks had tied the game at 20-all. But Danbury closed the deal when Kennedy scored on a threeyard touchdown run with 1:36 left in the third quarter. Schenk

Danbury’s defensive lineman, Hunter Stephens, blocks this pass attempt by St. Wendelin’s quarterback Zach successfully kicked the conversion point, and the Lakers led 27-20. Danbury scored its final touchdown with 6:43 remaining in the game on a 21-yard run by Kennedy. Danbury opens Toledo Area Athletic Conference play at Hill-

Then with 1:07 remaining, Scott scored again on a 29-yard run, putting the Rockets up 14-7 heading into halftime. The second half was all about the Rockets - which came out and scored three touchdowns to ice the victory over Eastwood. In the third quarter, Scott scored again on a seven-yard run with 5:23 remaining. Scott scored his fourth touchdown on a 15-yard run with 2:03 left in the

third, and he scored his fifth and final touchdown on a 10-yard with 7:24 remaining in the game. Scott rushed for a total of 217 yards on 36 carries, making up most of Oak Harbor’s 257 yards rushing. Sophomore running back Mark Konieczny added 35 yards on six carries, senior running back Kyle Mincheff had 18 yards on seven carries, and junior running back Alex Bergman ran for 10 yards on a single carry.

two girls to help fill out the brackets. All of our doubles teams picked up a win with 7 of our 9 doubles teams winning 2 or more matches. Over all, the girls played very well against some tough opponents,” Greer said. The Lady Redskins have opened the 2010 campaign where they left off last season. They have notched eight straight wins and stand atop the SBC at 4-0. “Every one of our 18 girls has earned at least one varsity win this season. I don’t know if that has ever been done here. “It’s nice to see the girls rewarded for their hard work and improvement,” Greer said.


Redskins fall to 2-1 By J. PATRICK EAKEN Port Clinton came out like it was going to give the Genoa Comets a real test in a battle of two previously unbeaten teams. The PC offense opened the game with an 11-play, 66yard drive and seemed to be heading into the Genoa end zone. On a second down, and 10, quarterback Derek Colston completed a pass to Steve Wingo for 10 yards and a first down. Colston completed a pass to Josh Graves for 14 yards and another first down Then Colston threw for 13 yards to Wingo, and the Redskins were on the move. Colston threw for 26 yards to Graves, getting PC its fourth first down before Genoa even took possession of the football. But after Laurel rushed for a three-yard loss, Colston was sacked by Genoa senior defensive lineman Andrew Hayes for a nine-yard loss, then the roof really fell in. Genoa junior defensive back Brandon Roberts intercepted a Colston pass, and the drive suddenly came to end. Ten plays and 80 yards later, Genoa junior quarterback Josh Bryer threw to senior end Derek Allgier for a 19-yard touchdown pass with 4:18 remaining in the first quarter. The Comets would get two more touchdowns in that opening quarter to take a 21-0 lead. After a PC fumble, junior running back Tyler Pickard ran 20 yards for Genoa’s second touchdown with 4:03 remaining. Another PC fumble led to a 45-yard touchdown run by Roberts with 1:23 remaining. By game’s end, Genoa was walking away with a 51-0 victory to improve to 3-0 on the season. Genoa now has a 32-game regular season win streak, dating back to a loss to Oak Harbor three years ago. PC, which opened this season with victories over Gibsonburg and Woodmore, fell to 2-1. The Comets finished the game with seven touchdowns, 20 first downs to PC’s 10, 399 yards rushing to PC’s minus 31, however, the Redskins had 226 yards passing to Genoa’s 88. Colston completed 14-of-22 passes for 220 yards, good enough for a 64 percent completion rating and a quarterback rating of 77.8. Wingo caught five passes for 41 yards, Graves caught six passes for 127 yards, and Eric Reynolds caught two passes for 28 yards. For Genoa, Kyle Nutter ran for 111 yards on five carries, Roberts had 57 yards on six carries, Max Reeder had 48 yards on four carries, and Pickard and Nick Mortensen each had 37 yards. Bryer completed 5-of-7 passes for 88 yards. Port Clinton opens Sandusky Bay Conference play this Friday by hosting league pre-season favorite Clyde (3-0) at 7:30 p.m Clyde opened the season with a 21-17 victory over Eastwood behind touchdown runs by Ryan Myers, Kalob Andrews, and Jordan Colson. Since then, the Fliers have defeated Youngstown East 3822 and Bellevue 17-0.

The event is open to the public at $30 per person in advance and $35 at the door.

The 20 Under 40 program focuses on individuals under the age of 40 who have distinguished themselves in their careers and/or in the community. It is intended that the program will further motivate

When you were in school, you had to concentrate on your studies. When you began your career, you had to concentrate on your work. In fact, in just about every endeavor in life, concentration is essential for success. However, as an investor, you may find that you actually don’t want to concentrate too much. That’s not to say you shouldn’t concentrate on your investment decisions — you should. But if you concentrate too much money in one investment, or one type of investment, you could run into problems. Suppose, for example, that your portfolio is almost entirely devoted to growth stocks. During a good economy, growth stocks generally tend to do well, so if we’re enjoying a period of sustained growth, your portfolio might show some good returns. But if the economy slumps while you own only growth stocks, you could sustain losses that may take a long time from which to recover. On the other hand, if you over-concentrate on fixed-income investments, such as bonds, your principal value might increase when interest rates are falling (as interest rates and bond prices are inversely related), but when interest rates rise, your bond portfolio will likely lose principal value. To help avoid the problems of overconcentration, it’s important to own a range of investments, which may include stocks, bonds, government securities and certificates of deposit (CDs). While this type of diversification cannot, by itself, guarantee a profit or protect against loss, it can help reduce the effects of volatility on your portfolio. Of course, how you choose to allocate your assets will depend on a variety of factors, including the following: • Your goals — Your ultimate objec-

tives should help govern your investment strategy. If you are planning to retire early and then start a new business, you may need to invest more aggressively than, say, your neighbor, who wants to work as long as possible and then stay close to home, pursuing inexpensive hobbies. • Your risk tolerance — Just as we all have different personalities, we have different tolerances for investment risk. If you can assume greater risk in exchange for potentially higher returns, you may be a more aggressive investor. Conversely, if you’re willing to take lower returns as a trade-off for greater protection of your principal, you’re probably a more conservative investor. However, to achieve your goals, you may consider moving outside your investment “comfort zone” from time to time. • Your time horizon — Your stage of life will also affect your investment choices. If you are just starting your career, you can probably afford to invest more aggressively than if you are nearing retirement, at which time you may want to cut down on risks. To build a diversified portfolio that reflects your goals, risk tolerance and time horizon, you may want to work with a professional financial advisor — someone who can assess your situation and recommend choices that are appropriate for your needs. By concentrating on a unified investment strategy — instead of over-concentrating on a specific type of investment — you can focus on where you want to go and what you need to do to get there. nnn
