Getting back to work

By BONNIE NUSSER Director of Northcoast Jobs Connection Finding a new job, starting over can be scary. It’s also exciting! We’re not going to discuss in this article how tough it is out there right now to find a job that is comparable to the one you just left, are leaving or left you. What we can do is give you some hope, some facts and a few tips. The tip that first comes to mind is if you are starting over, or know someone who needs to start over — have them start right away. Don’t wait. Reason being, you can’t afford to wait. The longer you sit and stew about your situation, someone else — who you will be competing against for that next job — could already be on their way. The longer you wait, while receiving unemployment (if you are), there’s someone who isn’t waiting. Actually though, you are not really starting over, in the sense that you have built a foundation for yourself to some degree. You are or were on a track going some-

Hot Jobs list for Ottawa County: Machinist (OH517627) Wages not listed            

BY JOHN SCHAFFNER Publisher Col. Mike Skomrock took the podium at the Port Clinton High School Performing Arts Center Satrurday to address the members of the 200th Red Horse Squadron who had just returned from a long deployment in the Middle East. “Good morning Red Horse,” he says. Back from the members of his squadron comes “Good morning Sir!” Skomrock said he takes very seriously the mission of his squadron of rapid deployment engineers. He also takes very seriously the support that his squadron gets from their families and the community they call home. “We could not do what we do without

Tell Tales

Welcome home I was honored to attend and photograph the formal welcome home ceremony for the 200th Red Horse Squadron last Saturday. It was really a nice ceremony. However, there was one moment where the humanity of these airmen shone through. While chatting with a couple of them prior to the ceremony, one of they guys stated in a quite matter-of-fact manner, “I’ve been drinking beer the last few days like it’s my job!” Well said!

I got my free copy at the Ottawa National Wildlife Refuge about a month ago and have found it to be very interesting. Below is some of what I learned. (But I highly recommend that you read “Ohio’s Lake Erie Public Access Guidebook” yourself. It is chock-full of great information.) Ohio has 312 miles of shoreline on our Great Lake Erie and several counties abut it. There is a graphic chart near the front of the book that shows the number of public access sites in each county. It seems that Ottawa County is second only to Erie County. We have 30 sites and Erie County has 39. There are nearly 53 miles of Erie’s shoreline available to public access at 164 sites. The book has a lot of pictures, charts, maps and is picturesque and beautiful. I’m partial, no doubt, but it seemed to me that the Ottawa County sites were by far the most attractive of any county that is listed.

River empties into Lake Erie and there is access to fishing along the pier there. The public access to the lake now stretches from Waterworks Park eastward to the city beach. There is a walking trail, picnic area, playground and other amenities. The Lakefront Preserve houses waterfowl and bird habitat. It has been designated “Important Bird Area” by the Audubon Society and will be permanently maintained as a nature preserve. Port Clinton City Beach has 2,180 feet of swimming access. Just to the south, on the other side of Perry Street, is a large park with picnic and playground facilities and nicely shaded areas. • Out almost at the tip of the Catawba peninsula is Catawba Island State Park. (I recommend it for boat watching — especially of those who are putting their boats in the water from the ramp or taking them out). There is a wonderful fishing pier, a three-lane boat ramp, parking areas for boat trailers and cars, picnic facilities and playground. • When I was a youngster, and later when I was a young married woman, East Harbor was THE place to go for swimming. It currently has more than 2 miles of coastline including a 1,500 foot swimming beach. This park has 14 picnic areas. There are also trails, wetlands, wildlife viewing from observation decks and elsewhere, fishing, campsites, a store and a nature center. There are boat ramps, a marina and more. The park is open in the winter for off-season recreational activities. • I’ve been there, but never used any of the facilities at Mazurik State Access Area. There is a four-lane boat ramp and a fishing pier. Parking is accessible night and day. • The place I visit most often is Marblehead Lighthouse State Park. The wonderful lighthouse is one of the most photographed (and artist-painted) landmarks on the lake. A park area provides picnic facilities, fishing and spectacular views. Tours of the tower structure are available in the warm summer months. Also in the village of Marblehead is Lake Point Park that has public area on both sides of Bayshore Road. Park benches provide a good place for lake viewing. Many picnic and park facilities, including trails, woods and playground are found there. • The lighthouse on South Bass Island is a large house in red brick. An attached tower provides space for the beacon light. There is also a meteorological station that transmits information to the National Weather Service. Ohio State University now owns this historic place. Also on South Bass Island are many other access points to the lake. These include: • South Bass Island State Park with boat docks and ramp, campsites, swimming, fishing… • Captain Parker’s Park is a tiny place but has a scenic overlook and great places to enjoy the lake view. • Two public ice ramps are available on the west shore of the island. These provide lake access for ice fishermen in winter. • An Aquatic Visitors Center is housed in the building formerly used as the state fish hatchery. It has six aquariums with Lake Erie fish on display. Hands-on exhibits give a close-up interpretation of Lake Erie’s water species. There is a public fishing area; courtesy dockage is available. • Oak Point State Park is the smallest of all Ohio’s parks comprising only 1.5 acres. Great views of the harbor, Perry’s Monument and Gibraltar Island may be seen from the great location. • DeRivera Park is in the village of Put-in-Bay. It’s downtown and has wonderful views of the harbor and its plethora of boats. There are long public docks where the public may walk. Very large, scenic boats often dock there. • Perry’s Victory and International Peace Memorial is located on the narrowest part of South Bass Island. This is a national park, part of the National Park Service, centered by a huge Doric column (352 feet). This is the nation’s third tallest memorial. The park is kept up beautifully. On breezy days many colorful kites may be seen being flown here. On “Historic Weekend” in early September, as many as 1,200 Boy Scouts encamp around the monument. • Scheef Nature Preserve on East Point is owned by the Put-in-Bay Park DisAt Bay Park Community Hospital, trict.

Sound Off Bring back Reagonomics

beyond under Obama. What we need is a positive atmosphere for business, not all these constant demeaning remarks about the corporate world, which does nothing but stifle the corporate initiative to grow and invest. Strickland’s constant comments, “I don’t represent the Wall Street guys,” and Obama’s negative comments about the corporate and banking world, gives little incentive for investments and growth. “The big Wall Street guys,” “the millionaire banks,” “how much salary is too much,” and on and on with the negative comments about big business. With Reagonomics, the tax cuts and the economic expansion and a positive business atmosphere, the unemployment dropped from the Carter years to 5.2 under Reagan. These things Reagan implemented: 1. Reduce government spending. 2. Reduce income and capital gains marginal tax rates. 3. Reduce government regulation. 4. Control the money supply to reduce inflation.

Clinton. They were supposed to bring a bus into town, but it broke down. So they made it a caravan. When Skomrock concluded his glowing remarks about the job the 200th Red Horse unit had done while deployed, he stood at attention and said, “To the Horse.” It echoed back at him, “To the Horse.”

We need to create 150,000 jobs a year to keep up with population growth. How are we doing? As of the current figures, Ohio’s unemployment rate is 11 percent, a new high for Ohio in modern times. The unemployment rate in Ohio when Strickland took office was 5.3 and the state has now lost 429,300 jobs. At the statehouse in Columbus sits a statue of a former Ohio governor, Jim Rhodes, who was elected a record four times. An inscription on the statue says, “The greatest contribution a governor can make is to create jobs in the private sector.” Ohio ranks sixth in the list of states with the highest job losses. Of course Michigan is first, a state run by Union bosses, high taxes and Democratic politics. From December 2008 to December 2009, more than 255,000 Ohio jobs disappeared. We desperately need lower corporate taxes and a pro-business atmosphere. Currently, the average combined state and federal tax rate in the U.S. is 39.3 percent, second among OECD counties to Japan’s 39.5 percent.

JOBS from 1A where. Give yourself some credit. It may take you to a better place that you didn’t even know existed. Or it may exist in your life right now in the form of a hobby. You hear about the people who have turned their hobbies, their interests into a business, some very lucrative. Best of all, it’s something they’ve love to do. How great is that. Above all else, there is one thing you are going to need to survive and thrive. That would be a positive attitude. No matter what happened to you. It is hard to not want to be angry, sad, resentful, d e p re s s e d , withdrawn, with the whole “woe is me” attitude. Think about it —

how far is an attitude like that going to get you? Do you enjoy being around whiners, complainers, blamers? Worse yet, is if you take that with you to an interview. Would you, hire you? Would you want to work with you? Be honest. OK, let’s back up. Another tip: You might not have a clue what to do now. Talk with people. Go to The Job Store. Get to know yourself with some self assessments that are available there. There is help. There are resources. It isn’t that painful. If you do not have a high school diploma or GED, you will need one. There are very few employers who hire those without a high school education. You have the life skills, the skill base from your last job and the work ethic. You need that piece of paper. That’s reality. And, that’s not good enough in many, many instances. If you want to make a good living for yourself and your family, it takes some time and effort — hone those skills, learn new skills. An individual’s earning potential is directly related to an individual’s education level. The more you learn the more you earn.

Two local staffers, one volunteer start apprenticeship More than two dozen Stein Hospice staff members and volunteers recently began the Anamcara Apprenticeship program, an intensive, two-year training developed by the Sacred Art of Living in Oregon. The program is based on the Celtic traditions of Anamcara, a Gaelic word meaning “soul friend.” The 27 men and women will spend time in daily practice and attend study groups and retreats throughout the two years.

The program trains individuals to become an advocate and soul friend to those dying or experiencing other losses and transitions. The first session was held Sept. 2326 at Sawmill Creek Resort in Huron. Stein Hospice was one of the first pilot sites in the Midwest for the Sacred Art of Living & Dying series, a four-unit program that an individual must complete before enrolling in the Anamcara Apprenticeship program.

Stein recently sponsored Unit 1, also held at Sawmill Creek Resort, and 47 staff members and 22 volunteers attended. Local Stein Hospice staff members who are participating in the Anamcara program are Jan Bucholz, of Marblehead, and Connie Focht, of Port Clinton. One local volunteer — Gene Heinzerling, of Port Clinton — is also enrolled.

Port Clinton Middle School science teacher Kyle Kunard and student Dominic Perkins work together to describe properties of a natural item found on the shores of Lake Erie during the Educational Expedition.

Educational Expedition for PCMS students Fleet 7 at Port Clinton Middle School walked to the shores of Lake Erie for their Educational Expedition on Friday, Oct. 1. Lake Erie, the Derby Pond, Waterworks Park and the surrounding area provided all the necessary stages for the various activity stations planned by their teachers. Through this lesson the students realized the unique environmental and economic impact Lake Erie has on our community. Rotating throughout the afternoon, students had lessons in all their core subject areas. Math lessons included price comparisons of different means of traveling on the lake and using tape measures to find the circumference of various circular objects to determine the diameters. The Language Arts portion included defining the boundaries of a small “nat-

ural area” and then writing a descriptive paragraph about it using sensory details. Science was incorporated by listing physical properties and possibly some chemical properties of an item of matter from the area in an interactive science lesson. Agents from the local Border Protection Agency were on hand to explain why we have a government agency patrolling our northern border with Canada and how it relates to government. They also informed students how people can enter this line of work, along with job requirements and qualifications. This Social Studies lesson compared our culture to that of other countries by discussing border security and crossing international borders. There was also a cumulative team-building group activity for students.

PCHS senior is semifinalist for National Merit Scholarship Mark Fillmore, a senior at Port Clinton High School, is a semifinalist in the 2011 National Merit Scholarship Program. A Letter of Commendation from the National Merit Scholarship Corp., which conducts the program, was presented by Principal Ralph Moore to this scholastically talented senior. Fillmore is the son of Steve and Teresa Fillmore. Besides his academic achievements, he is involved in numerous school activities, some of which include Redskin soccer, tennis, president of Leadership Council, National Honor Society,

About 90 percent of the semifinalists are expected to attain finalist standing, and approximately half of the finalists will win a National Merit Scholarship. Fillmore will learn in February if he has been selected as a finalist. Scholarship and winners will be announced beginning in April.

Commercial & Industrial Painting Contractors Students in Mrs. Rita McNutt’s first grade class at Immaculate Conception School recently enjoyed a history lesson at the Wolcott House and the Marblehead Lighthouse. Students were treated to stories, treats and a tour of the home and lighthouse. Pictured are: Annabelle Barna, Dalton Boyd, Marcella Brenner, Ben Cadigan, Abigail Derivan, Michael Garber, Emmett Gillman, Keegan Hunsinger, Joseph Kolar, Robby Perez, Paige Reineck, Ella Roberts, Gabriel Scott, Emma Shrader, Anthony Smith, Emily Theibert, Ryan Zam and Michael Zibert with Mrs. McNutt and the guides at the Wolcott Home.

Kindergarteners at Bataan Memorial Elementary Kindergarten had a parade Friday, Oct. 1. The celebration was the culmination project for the book students read during kindergarten language arts lessons. Based upon the book, “We are so Proud!” by Donna Longo, students were introduced to new vocabulary such as

proud, preparation, cooperation, creation, float and guide. Kindergarten teachers organized the parade and students made signs, decorations, hats and even decorated a float. A full photo album and webcast of the parade can be seen at under Bataan Elementary and “News.”

PCHS senior named Commended Scholar

Bike raffle benefits Humane Society, food bank Wright’s General Contracting, one of the sponsors of Sims Racing 2010 Sportsman Track Champion, bought and raffled a 24” bike at the Sandusky Race Track. The raffle brought in $213. Wright’s donated $100 to The Drivers Fund and $113 to Ottawa County Humane Society. Mike Sims, driver of the No. 13 car that

won the 2010 Sportsman Track Champion that night, pulled the winning ticket and Wendy Wright handed the bike over to the winner. Wright’s General Contracting could like to thank Pam Reiser and Nancy Sims for helping to sell tickets and a big thanks to K-Mart of Fremont for discounting the

bike for the raffle. Wrights General Contracting is having another bike raffle now through Nov. 20. All proceeds will be divided between Ottawa County Humane Society and Danbury Food Bank. Tickets will be sold from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at Marysville Ma-

Convicted doesn’t mean disenfranchised A few county residents are making a pre-election push to reach as many voters as possible — and it’s not in support of a candidate. Eleanor St. Clair, former chaplain for the Ottawa County Jails, and Carla Boyer and Carol Miller, of Church Women United, are spreading the word about voters’ rights, specifically those of convicted felons. According to St. Clair, many people think those convicted of felonies can’t vote in Ohio. The brochure she and the other ladies are distributing say otherwise. “Find a New Direction: Voting Information For People Convicted of Felonies in Ohio,” a pamphlet provided by Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, says there are only two circumstances where a person can temporarily or permanently




lose voting rights for being convicted of a crime. “First, if a person is convicted of a felony and currently incarcerated for that conviction, that person is not eligible to vote during his or her imprisonment … Second, a person who has been twice convicted of felony violations of Ohio’s election laws is permanently barred from voting in Ohio,” the brochure states. That means most convicted felons can vote as long as they are otherwise eligible. The brochures have been placed in the libraries in Port Clinton and Oak Harbor and at churches throughout the county.

Scouts collecting food for holidays Once again this year Marblehead Peninsula Scout troops, led by long time Scout enthusiast Curt Laubner, will assist the Holiday Bureau gathering food for families in need during the holiday season. Through the “Scouting for Food” campaign, about 40 Cub and Boy Scouts will distribute nearly 800 grocery bags to homes throughout Marblehead and Danbury Township on Saturday, Oct. 16. Danbury Township residents

are urged to look for the bags and fill them with canned goods or boxed food items. On Saturday, Oct. 23, the scouts will return to pick up the filled bags and deliver them to the Holiday Bureau. “These young boys give up two of their Saturday mornings to help,” said Judy Just, unit chairwoman. “It is much appreciated and represents strong values in these young aspiring men.”

Individuals interested in donating food can drop it off at either of two locations: The Marblehead Peninsula Chamber of Commerce’s office at 5681 E. Harbor Road., Suite C (across from the Victorian Inn), or Otterbein North Shore, 9400 North Shore Boulevard. For info or to apply for help, call 4197984163.

Redskin offense wins face off with Margaretta By J. PATRICK EAKEN It was another big offensive night during Port Clinton’s Homecoming at True-Lay Stadium. The Redskins posted 50 points in defeating Margaretta, 50-34, in Sandusky Bay Conference action Friday. Port Clinton improves to 4-3 overall, 2-2 in the SBC. PC’s first touchdown came on a 50-yard pass from quarterback Derek Colston to Josh Graves. But every time PC scored, Margaretta would counter. Stephen Pastor ran for a 4-yard touchdown, and a twopoint conversion pass from Colston to Eric Reynolds would give PC its first lead at 15-12. Graves then scored on an 88-yard touchdown run for PC. Pastor scored on a 70-yard run in the third quarter to give PC the cushion it needed, and the Redskins would score one more time in the fourth quarter. This Saturday, Port Clinton travels to Sandusky to face St. Mary Central Catholic. St. Mary is 1-6 overall and winless in the SBC. SMCC’s lone win came over Mapleton, 31-12. Losses have been to Norwalk St. Paul (42-6), Fremont St. Joseph Central Catholic (42-7), Margaretta (31-7), Perkins (296), Huron (12-7) and Clyde (35-0).

OAK HARBOR 14 — EDISON 7 Jake Scott scored the winning touchdown on a 47-yard run with 8:28 remaining in the game to give Oak Harbor a 14-7 victory over Edison Friday night. The Rockets improved to 6-1 overall and stayed perfect in four Sandusky Bay Conference games. Scott ended the game with 122 yards rushing on 27 carries. The Rockets generated 169 yards rushing, including a run by Davey Burkett that covered 28 yards and Kyle Mincheff had 20 yards on five carries. The Oak Harbor defensive backs shined once again, getting four interceptions. Josh Warnke had two and Andrew Sharp and Burkett each had one. Burkett returned his interception 16 yards. There were also four fumbles lost, three by Oak Harbor and one by Edison. Oak Harbor quarterback Steve Young completed 8-of20 passes for 69 yards with one interception. He had a 22yard completion to Zach Priesman and a 17-yard completion to Burkett. Priesman caught two passes for 40 yards, Burkett caught

three for 34, and Brian Mallernee caught one pass for 6 yards. D.J. Everett and Mark Konieczny also caught a pass. Steve Young punted three times for Oak Harbor, averaging 41.3 yards per kick. Oak Harbor now moves on to host Huron this Friday night. The Tigers are 5-2 overall, 3-1 in the SBC. ~ Yaneek Smith contributed to this report.

NORTHWOOD 44 — DANBURY 8 Danbury took 13 players into its Toledo Area Athletic Conference game at Northwood, and lost to the Rangers 44-8. The Rangers had 58 players along its sidelines. “Northwood is a very good team,” Danbury coach Tim Heffernan said. “Physically, they are better than us and they run the option really, really well. ”We, from our perspective, are healthy. We went in with 13 and we came out with 13. A step in that direction was great for us,” Heffernan continued. Danbury’s lone score was an 11-yard pass from Zack Kalinowski to Lucas Kennedy, who was moved into a position where he could carry the ball more to help generate offense.




“We threw an interception early in the game that went for a touchdown, and that was not good,” Heffernan said. “Then we tried to get Lucas out of the quarterback spot and get him into the receiver spot, and we were successful, later, in the game, when (Northwood) had some of his younger guys in.” The good news — Kennedy went over 1,000 yards rushing for the season and is closing in on 2,000 total offensive yards. He now has 1,033 yards rushing on 119 attempts (8.68 per carry) with 13 touchdowns, and he has completed 40-of-89 passes for 720 yards and five touchdowns. The Lakers had 241 total yards, including 159 rushing and 82 passing. The Lakers had eight first downs, including five rushing, two passing, and one by penalty. Against Northwood, Kennedy completed 3-of-14 passes for 58 yards while Kalinkowski completed 3-of-6 for 24 yards. Both quarterbacks threw one interception apiece. Kennedy ran for 98 yards on 18 carries, Cody German had 23 yards on 10 carries, Brandon Bahnsen had 22 yards on six carries, and Mike Ward had 17 yards on three carries. Northwood improved to 5-2 overall, 3-0 in the TAAC. Danbury falls to 1-5 and 0-4. This week, the Lakers host Toledo Christian (5-2, 3-0).

Rocket runners looking to repeat By YANEEK SMITH The Oak Harbor girls cross country team, a model of success for several years now, is up to its old tricks again. The team, which has won its district meet the past three seasons, is looking to duplicate last season’s achievements by repeating as Sandusky Bay Conference and district champions. For the girls, who came in seventh at the regional meet last season, the goals are always high. “We want to be successful in the league and be one of the top four teams coming out of districts to get that extra week at regionals,” said Rockets head coach Gina Warnke, now in her 13th season with the team. Senior Kia Frank, who missed qualifying for the state meet by one place last year, is again leading the charge for the Rockets. The team has finished no lower than fifth at any invitational this year, including a recent second-place finish out of 21 teams at the Clay Eagle Invite. “Kia’s being a great team leader by being a senior and by being out in front,” said Warnke. For Frank, the goal is pretty simple: to get to the state meet in Columbus. “As long as we keep her consistent and injury-free, she’s definitely got a shot,” said Warnke. “19:40, she’s been

running consistently — that kind of puts her on the bubble.” While competing at several large invitationals this season, Frank has finished fifth, ninth, second and second, respectively, cementing her status as an elite runner. Oak Harbor has an experienced group to complement Frank and round out the top five: Allie Dresser, Megan Wistinghausen, Coral Petersen and Tory Wood. Dresser, a sophomore, has run a personal-best of 20 minutes, 28 seconds, making her a solid No. 2 runner while Wistinghausen has been steady as the team’s No. 3. The wild-cards are Petersen and Wood, who have rotated as the team’s fourth and fifth runners, respectively. Wood, a senior who finished 32nd at the regional meet last season when she ran a 20:41, has fared well in her years as a runner, qualifying for regionals in her first three seasons. Her best finish at the regional meet came in 2007 as a freshman when she came in 25th place. If she and Petersen, a freshman, can perform well in the next several weeks, expect the Rockets to head back to the regional meet in Tiffin on Oct. 30. “Our one, two and three runners are where they need to be,” said Warnke. “We just need to move the fourth and

Mike Grodi gets a high five from Port Clinton Mayor Debbie HymoreTester during a ceremony to honor his 20 years coaching.

Oak Harbor senior sets record Oak Harbor senior Kia Frank finished first in the girls competition at the Ottawa County Invitational on Tuesday, Oct. 5 setting a new record. Frank’s time of 19:20.55 is the best time ever on the Oak Harbor course. Oak Harbor won the invitational for the seventh year in a row. fifth runner up to be a little more competitive.” As with any successful cross country program, the hard work starts in the offseason. During the summer, Warnke has the team undergo a conditioning program to help the team prepare for the season. That, along with some workouts that feature a mix of speed and long-distance training, helps to round the Rockets into shape every year. Despite the team’s success thus far, there is still plenty of work to be done. The conference meet takes place in Huron on October 16th and the district meet is the following week. “We’ve still got a couple weeks yet,” said Warnke.

Coach honored Port Clinton Pee Wee Football Coach Mike Grodi was honored at halftime of a recent game for giving 20 years of committed volunteer service to the program. Grodi, a lifetime resident of Port Clinton was recognized for his enthusiasm, passion and dedication to the youth of the community. The ceremony, which was a surprise to Grodi, was celebrated by his family, fourth, fifth, and sixth grade football teams, past and present coaches, cheerleaders, previous players, Redskins Head Football Coach Toby Hammond, parents, fans and special guest Mayor Debbie Hymore-Tester, who gave a speech to honor Grodi, as well as gave him a Proclamation from the City of Port Clinton. After the game, everyone was invited to have cake with Mike and congratulate him on a job well done.

person. Knowing in your gut that the people who care about you are still in your corner transfers as courage to try again. It’s best to wait until emotions cool down before talking about the incident. Then work on handling the problems should the same situation happen again. It is almost never a positive fix to berate or punish the player. They already fear making another mistake, and doubling the fear with the threat of punishment is detrimental. Help them believe in themselves. We don’t need to make a big deal out of the event. It’s already big enough. Dwelling on the past mistake, breeds fear which leads to hesitation, which leads to another mistake and the player self-destructs. Handling adversity is one of the great lessons from sports. Learning from the mistake and doing something about it helps the athlete move forward to a better place. For the proud athlete, a lot of sympathy doesn’t help much. Teens probably won’t want any talk at all. However you do it, let them know that having a nightmare performance doesn’t keep you from being proud of them. Reassure them you are confident they will be strong enough to compete well again. Understand their emotions. More than once I sat beside a player until they recovered after a bad loss. We did not speak. She knew I was there to share her pain and she knew I cared about her. Unearned praise does not help. Examine the situation and analyze what the player can do the next time. Prepare the player to know what to do and practice the emotional and physical skills needed to face the same situation and succeed. Teach mental toughness. (Look for ideas in sports psychology literature.) By the way, another thing the earlier disaster scenarios have in common: the hapless athlete in both was me! The embarrassment I felt as a teenager was exactly the same feeling I felt many decades later. Luckily both times, I had good friends and teammates who helped me through the rough moments and eased the pain. I played better the next time. I banished the nightmares, thanks to them. nnn

Financial Focus

When investing, don’t stop at the U.S. border

In less than two weeks, United Nations Day will be celebrated. It’s an occasion to highlight and reflect on the work of the United Nations, whose mission is to promote understanding and cooperation among the world’s countries. Of course, in an era of instantaneous communications and speedy global travel, we are all connected much more closely than ever before. And that’s certainly true in the financial markets, too, because as an investor, you’ve got a world full of opportunities. Many people, however, still think the U.S. totally dominates the investment scene. But the fact is that U.S. stock markets make up less than half of the total global stock market value, according to the Census Bureau. And that should come as no surprise to you when you consider many of the products you use on a daily basis, from the Hyundai (South Korea) you drove to work to the Nestle Crunch bar (parent company in Switzerland) you snacked on at lunch to the Sony television (Japan) you watch at night. Not only are many strong companies based in the developed countries, but some emerging markets — countries such as China, India, Brazil and Mexico that are characterized by younger, less mature economies —

are growing rapidly, which may produce good investment opportunities. Keep in mind, though, that emerging markets do involve investment risks different from those of more developed countries. Securities may be less liquid and more volatile because economic structures are generally less diverse and mature. And by investing internationally, you can gain another key benefit — improved diversification. If you only invested domestically, and a downturn hits us, your portfolio will likely take a hit. But, at any given time, international markets may perform quite differently than the U.S. market. Consequently, if you expanded your investment horizon beyond U.S. borders, your foreign investments could be doing relatively well, even if your American investments were lagging. Keep in mind, though, that diversification, by itself, cannot guarantee profits or protect against loss, though it may be able to help reduce the effects of volatility. While you can gain some benefits by investing internationally, you’ll also need to consider the risks, such as political risk. For example, new governments can come in, nationalize companies, drastically change policies or rules affecting commerce, or take other actions that could have

a big effect on your investments. You might also encounter currency risk — that is, changes in the value of the U.S. dollar, relative to foreign currencies, could negatively affect the value of your investments. Another factor to consider is the difference in accounting standards between the U.S. and other countries, a difference that can result in difficulty analyzing the true value and performance of foreign investments. You can enhance your portfolio’s diversification without investing a lot abroad. If you are considering international investments you may want to limit the foreign exposure to no more than 20 to 25 percent of your overall portfolio, with the exact amount depending on your individual risk tolerance, time horizon and long-term goals. Also, given the more complex issues involved in international investing, you’ll want to consult with a professional financial advisor before taking action. But once you’ve done your “due diligence,” don’t be afraid to launch your voyage to the world of international investing. You might like what you see on your journey.
