Middle Bass Island State Park awarded $1M from ODNR COLUMBUS — The Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Watercraft awarded a $1 million grant to Middle Bass Island State Park. The funds were allocated for boating access facility projects across the state that will improve and encourage public use and access to Ohio waterways. At Middle Bass, the money will be used to assist in the design and construction of the bathrooms and showers for the transient boaters. Seventeen boating facility design and construction projects will be funded during 2010 and 2011 through the Cooperative Boating Facilities Grant Program. Five of the projects will help propel the state’s fastest growing boating opportunities by improving access for non-motorized boats such as kayaks and canoes. A dozen other approved projects will provide enhanced recreational opportunities for users of motorized watercraft. Statewide, $4.6 million will be allocated to improve waterway access in Clermont, Columbiana, Defiance, Delaware, Erie, Lorain, Medina, Miami, Muskingum, Ottawa, Portage, Preble, Summit and Tuscarawas counties. ODNR Division of Watercraft administers the Cooperative Boating Facilities Grant Program, which is funded by the state motor fuels tax, watercraft registration and titling fees and funding from the U.S. Coast Guard. A list of the grant recipients and project descriptions can be found at www.ohiodnr.com/watercraft, click on grants.

Stone Lab gets $69K for renovations COLUMBUS —The State Controlling Board has released $69,050 in state funding to support renovations at Stone Laboratory on Gibraltar Island in Ottawa County. Established in 1895, Stone Laboratory is the oldest freshwater biological field station in the country and serves as center of The Ohio State University’s teaching and research on Lake Erie. Currently 65 researchers from 12 agencies and academic institutions work out of Stone Laboratory and the facility offers college-credit science courses to serve advanced high school students, undergraduate students, graduate students and educators. “Stone Laboratory is a regional jewel with a wide reach,” State Sen. Mark Wagoner said. “The health and welfare of the Great Lakes is critical to Ohio and the nation as a whole. This facility offers world-class research and the dissemination of information to help preserve one of our most valuable natural resources for many generations to come.” Planned renovations include upgrades to the existing flow-through holding tanks for fish and aquatic organisms as well as the refinishing and furnishing of instructional classrooms, research laboratories and the computer room. The state funding for this project was secured as part of the March 2008 State Capital Appropriations Bill — HB496.

H1N1 vaccine clinic Thursday PORT CLINTON — The Ottawa County Health Department has received a limited supply of H1N1 Flu mist. Flu Mist is approved for people ages 2 through 49 years of age who are not pregnant and do not have certain health conditions. The vaccine virus is attenuated (weakened) so it will not cause illness. This vaccine is sprayed into the nose. H1N1 vaccines are made just like seasonal flu vaccines and are expected to be as safe and effective as seasonal flu vaccines.

SoundOff Dear Editor, I am writing in support of the Ida Rupp Public library Levy which will be on the ballot Nov. 3. Libraries are very good at keeping statistics. They know from month to month how many people visit the library, how many items are checked out, how many children attend library programs, how many times the library computers are used. Sometimes statistics can tell a story that is hard to tell in other ways. For instance: Our library is a busy place. In 2008, there were more than 180,000 visits by patrons to the library. We are a community of readers. Last year more than 200,000 books were checked out of the library. We like to watch movies. DVDs were checked out more than 52,000 times. Children are big users of the library. In 2008, attendance at children’s programs was more than 13,000 and children checked out more than 80,000 items. For the past 2 years the Ida Rupp Public LIbrary has been rated in the 97th percentile of libraries its size in the country. These are amazing statistics for a town our size and hopefully they help tell the story of how valuable the library is to our community. Please support the library by voting yes on Issue 18 on Nov. 3. Meridith Beck, Ida Rupp Public Library Board of Trustees Dear Editor, As an alumni of Port Clinton City School District, our schools have been good to us and to our children. When we attended high school, in what is the current middle school, the building was less than 30 years old. At that time we had pride in what was a modern school facility. Past generations saw to it that we had a good education in Port Clinton. Now, we feel that we owe it to the children of this community to do the same. After touring Jefferson Elementary and the Middle School we are disappointed that we no longer provide better school buildings for our children. Fast-forward 10, 20 or 30 years. We just don’t see how these building will last. The important thing is our community has an opportunity to get up to $8 million in federal funding to help Port Clinton provide new buildings for the future. This is a one-time offer only good for the November 2009 election. The proposed 3.63 mill bond issue is our chance to make a difference for our children and a future beyond what we may see. Tony & Janeane Cipiti, Port Clinton Dear Editor, We are writing to express our support of the Port Clinton City Schools Issue #17 to be on the ballot this November. As one of the co-chairpersons I have had the opportunity to examine the issue in depth, and offer the following as reasons for my strong support of this issue. First, an examination of our current facilities reveals that both the middle school and Jefferson Elementary have far outlived their usefulness. Second, the cost of renovation of these facilities is now nearing the cost of brand new facilities, and renovation could not provide our students with the quality facilities that a new building would provide. Third, while the board and administration have done an outstanding job of downsizing to only four schools while providing excellent maintenance of the remaining facilities, continued attempts to maintain the older buildings is poor use of tax dollars. Fourth, we have an opportunity to gain additional funding which will only be available to us this year. This provides us with the ability to request the smallest possible sacrifice from our voters. Fifth, the plans proposed provide for the least possible disruption of our students during the construction phase, as well as being the most cost-efficient of the plans considered. Finally, the project will provide both construction jobs and income to our area as well as a much-needed

boost to the city of Port Clinton’s income tax revenues. These are certainly not the best of times to ask voters to support additional burdens, but others have sacrificed for us so that we could receive a quality education. It’s time for the voters of the Port Clinton School District to step up. As our slogan says, it just makes sense. Barry and Mary Jo Cover, PCHS Class of 1962 Dear Editor, I’m writing in response to the recent letter supporting Issue 2, and would like to provide an alternative perspective. This issue is designed to beat the Humane Society of the US to the punch, if you will, and proactively put legislation in place that would thwart efforts to establish minimal animal care standards. The HSUS has recently been successful in 6 states in establishing legislation to do so, specifically aimed at battery cages, veal crates, and gestation crates. (For a complete description of these, visit www.hsus.org/ farm/camp/totc/) As has been charged, the Humane Society does promote a vegetarian lifestyle. The allegation that the legislation that the Humane Society advocates is designed to impose vegetarianism is a bit of the “slippery slope” argument. In fact, the HSUS standard that Issue 2 is designed to avoid is this: farm animals confined to a crate, cage, or stall would be allowed to stand up, lie down, turn around and extend their limbs. It is up to each individual voter to search their conscience and decide if this standard is extreme.I don’t believe the prior states have had sufficient time to address the economic effect of this legislation, and I have to agree that there will be some cost to adjusting to this standard. The trade-off is that it is hoped that a more humane treatment of the animals we consume would be worth a slightly higher cost in the short term. Meanwhile, the free market is already moving in this direction: Burger King, Wendy’s, McDonald’s, Chipotle and Quizno’s have committed to using only pork from pigs not confined in crates. McDonald’s and Unilever both moved to stop using battery-cage eggs last year strictly in response to issues of humane treatment (www.worldpoultry.net/news/unilever-and-mcdonalds-change-to-free-range-eggs-id2433.html). These moves enhance the family farmer’s ability to make a profit without engaging in hurtful animal handling, and favor smaller farms over factory farming. The other questionable aspect of this issue is the method; amending the state constitution is an overzealous and inappropriate avenue for this issue. Because of this, The League of Women Voters, the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Columbus Dispatch and Dayton Daily News all oppose this issue. (www.lwvohio.org) I encourage voters who are interested in learning more to investigate this issue prior to making their voice heard at the polls. Whichever way you vote, please do. Trish McCartney, Port Clinton Dear Editor, We, John and Elva Fritz of Port Clinton, encourage you to vote for the Port Clinton School Levy. “WE DID.” Yes, we are both graduate of Port Clinton High School and also our two children. One grandson went through the eighth grade and then on to St. Johns High School in Toledo. The education we received at the time was great. It provided us with the skills necessary in that day to continue on to the work force or higher education. Today’s children need more than the type of education we and our children received. They need to know the sciences and computerization as the world is becoming technology based. We need to keep the schools updated in this every changing technological world also to prepare our children for the future. New program and new school buildings are necessary not only for the education but for the community. As mayor of Port Clinton during the 1970s and 1980s, I had the opportunity to sell Port Clinton on the area of industry, the good school system and the quality of education we were affording the movers in at the time. Now let’s get together and vote for better schools in the Port Clinton area. Vote yes for Issue 17. Former Mayor John F. Fritz and Elva B. Fritz Port Clinton Dear Editor, As a 1965 graduate of Port Clinton High School who attended two years in the “old” high school (now the middle school) and two in the “new” high school, I remember well the improvement in learning atmosphere that came with a new state-of-the-art school with up-to-date technology, brighter more comfortable classrooms and immensely improved facilities. The thousands of us who have graduated from PCHS since 1964 have benefited from the foresight and generosity of those who went before us and who built a new school for us. Now it is our turn to continue this legacy for the school children of our community by passing the school bond levy on Nov. 4. Peggy Debien, Captain, US Navy, Retired, PCHS 1965

BY VIRGINIA PARK

By the time you read this I’ll be back home following a short vacation. The summer slipped by so quickly and I knew I wouldn’t be getting a vacation then, anyway. So a while back I booked myself into a room at Mohican State Park Lodge and that’s where I am as I write this column. I didn’t get here until about 9:30 p.m. It was pitch black and raining and the roads were up hill and down dale and around mind-bending curves for the last few miles. I’ve been here before — but the place looks really different at night. Another time that I was here — about 25 or 26 years ago — it was in the dead of winter and there was a big snowfall. I kept driving and driving to reach the lodge and more snow was coming down all the time. There was no other traffic on the road and then the steering mechanism on my car began acting strange. I got out and the wheel wells were full of snow that had to be kicked free before I could proceed. I made it to the lodge safely, finally, and was mighty glad to be inside that night. Tonight was another bad drive — but not as bad as that. I think I need to arrive here in the daylight on a warm spring day sometime — just to see what it’s like to behave like an average tourist having fun. Tomorrow, the first item on my agenda is to take a leisurely walk to enjoy the autumn colors. When I wake up I’ll check out the weather and if the rain has stopped, I’m going out before heading for breakfast in the dining room. ——— This past week has been an interesting one and I’ve had some fun, too. On Wednesday it was a pleasure to be a guest at the Nugent’s Canal Property Owners meeting. They had a variety of issues for discussion and it was interesting to hear about their concerns and plans. Because the subdivision is built around canals leading to the Portage River, some of the business items relate to upkeep and dredging of the canals. I have a special interest in that because of my membership in the multicounty Portage River Basin Council. On the next day, Thursday, the Coun-

BEACON from 1A to more than 14,000. The audit also reveals that the bulk of Beacon read-

cil met at Schedel Arboretum and Gardens at Elmore. Our primary focus at that meeting was on an action plan that includes a description of the entire Portage River Watershed. Final proofreading and corrections are now being made to the plan. It has taken a long time for the council and staff to get the draft in shape for review. But after final approval, the river and watershed will be eligible to apply for grants to do water study, volume study and to keep the river clean, free of siltation and safe for boaters, fishermen and other recreational users. This issue has been of interest to me for several years because, up until this time, it has been difficult (make that impossible) to obtain funds for improvements such as dredging or removal of siltation on the reaches of the Portage above the Ohio 2 bridge. When and if funds for such projects become available, the diligent work that the council has devoted to the plan will all have been worthwhile. This may be very helpful to our area here near the mouth of the long river. ——— Ohio’s Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner was in Port Clinton Thursday as the speaker for the annual Ottawa County Democratic Party dinner. I’d met Brunner and her husband several times and it was good to get re-acquainted. Her talk was primarily about the ways her office deals with elections. Since she took office she’s made many changes, always focusing on what she would like to see if she were a voter in a particular county. Her talk was well received by the guests at the dinner. Monette Garn was chairwoman of the event and she had lots of helpers, including her husband Roger and Laurie Thomas. They were ably assisting Monette and party chairman, Dan Laity, with finishing clean-up tasks when I left. Many other folks helped, too. ——— According to The Exponent, Viola Blatt celebrated birthday number 103 on Oct. 13. Her niece Evelyn Zelms and a great-nephew Tom Lenz helped her observe the day. It isn’t too late to send a card. Viola’s address is Room 205 at the Riverview Health Care

Campus. ——— And in another edition of The Exponent was a front page article featuring a photo of Paulette Weirich. This year she celebrated her 30th year as chairman of the Grand Parade at the Apple Festival. Wow! Congratulations, Paulette. And many thanks to The Exponent for paying her the tribute she deserved for her work over the years. ——— The 2009-2010 Musical Arts Series begins at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 30. “Conundrum,” presenting a chamber music ensemble of piano, flute, clarinet and soprano voice, will be featured. All concerts in the series are presented at Firelands Presbyterian Church, 2626 E. Harbor Road, Port Clinton. Cost is $15 at the door or $100 for a season ticket for seven performances. ——— The Put-in-Bay Gazette had an article about a 1-mill levy on the ballot in the village. If passed, levy proceeds will be used to refurbish the village hall. A new roof and windows, sealing the exterior, adding insulation and a new heating and air-conditioning system are among the items needed. ——— The Ida Rupp Public Library Cinema Arts Series continues with “Chungking Express” showing at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 23, in the West Third Street library entrance. Manic, cool and cosmopolitan romance that takes a detailed peek at the flashy yet gentle lives of two proud policemen who, after being dumped by their girlfriends, fall for a heroin dealer and a counter girl. This 1994 PG-13 film received seven international awards for acting, directing, cinematography, plus nine nominations. “Stage Beauty” will be shown at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 30, at the library. A female theater dresser (Clare Danes) creates a stir and sparks a revolution in 17th century London when she plays Desdemona in Othello. But what will become of the male actor she once worked for and eventually replaced? This 2004 R rated film received three British and American awards and one nomination.

ers (70 percent) are between the ages of 25 and 64. 53 percent of the respondents reported that they keep The Beacon around for more than one or two days while the balance, 47 percent keeps The Beacon around the home for up to a week or more. “Because we have stayed true to the Free Community Paper model, our circulation is not harmed by Jim & Barb Wenzinger what we do on the Cindy Bolte Internet,” SchaffPatricia Jones ner said. “HowPhoebe Borman ever, it is indeed Jim & Mary Ann Widmer humbling to know Larry Hattan that such a high Kathy Cheney

percentage of the people who call this area home tell us that whatever we are doing, they enjoy.” Saturday evening, The Beacon was given two awards at the Fall Conference of the Mid Atlantic Community Papers Association in Gettysburg, Pa., both for the Web site. The first award was for best blogs, and the second award was for timeliness of community news presentation. “We have stressed for sometime now that The Beacon online is different that The Beacon sent to the homes every week. Our Web master Paul Wallen and our new Editor Angie Adair have done a tremendous job of keeping us up to date at www.thebeacon.net. The credit goes to them,” said Schaffner. “It is our mission to make The Beacon the information hub of the communities that we serve.”

James D. Kasten is taking laparoscopic surgery to a new level. Using the latest technology, he now performs hysterectomy surgery through a single incision with the SILS procedure. In contrast to the typical 4 or 5 incisions required by traditional laparoscopy, the SILS procedure is achieved with a single 20 mm incision through the belly button. For patients, that means less time in the hospital, faster healing, less post-operative pain, and a barely noticeable scar.

City Hall Report BY MAYOR DEBBIE HYMORE-TESTER

I hope everyone has enjoyed their summer, as fall has come upon us quickly while we scurry to finish our projects for the year. I know it is an inconvenience when there is any kind of construction and I thank you all for being patient until its completion. I would like to thank all of our citizens that made many areas of our community beautiful with their dedication and hard work throughout the city. John Fritz, Jeanne and Tony Cipiti, Tony and Doug Garrett, Barb and Max McClurry, Maxine and Bud Carnicom, Glenn Verhoff, Downtown Beautification Group, Friends of the Parks, Friends of the Cemetery and special thanks to Kathy Jo Schweitzer and Mary Gordon for a wonderful job in promoting Riverfront Live at the Jefferson St. Pavilion. Many of you have noticed that we completed our street resurfacing program for this year. We milled and filled about 10 blocks. Many alleys have also had repair work. The first phase of Perry St. will start at the city limits at Lakeshore Dr. to the bridge then begin east of Washington St. to Oak. Next year we will continue from Oak St. to the end of Perry St. The engineering and surveying of the 3rd St. project on which we received funds from the American Recovery Act is being implemented and we should be starting in Dec. The length of this project will be approximately a year to a year and a half to complete. The Tree Commission has been very busy with our downtown tree plan. They did a survey of what the business and property owners would like to have done. Some wanted them removed; some trimmed, and eventually replaced with the correct specie. We started the removal on Madison St. and continued the removal on 2nd St. The trimming

of the remaining will be scheduled soon. This year we had 20 trees and 21 stumps that are in the process of being removed. Lakeview Park Restrooms facility and infrastructure project are underway and will be finished in the next few months. Julie Frattaroli and Pam Schraidt have been working on transferring the old cemetery plot records into a new computer program system for easy access. Waste Water Treatment Plant is close to being complete with phase 1a and phase 2. On Oct. 6, 2009 Main St. and the City of Port Clinton applied for a $400,000 Tier ll Community Devolvement Block Grant. The application is for public /private funds which will give the downtown properties/businesses ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opportunities to apply for funds to improve the exterior of their properties, along with community streetscapes for our downtown. Waterfront project update: Waterworks building is being cleaned out and packing up the old books and records and putting them in storage. It will be surveyed and from that, we will know how much hazardous material needs to be abated. The site plan design principles are being completed and coupled with the downtown strategic plan. This will help provide prospective developers with our intent. Remember Trick or Treat will be Oct. 31, 2009 from 6:00 pm â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7:30 pm keep you porch lights on and please watch out for the safety of our children. I wish all our citizens and their families a safe and happy holiday season, may God bless you, our country and our armed forces.

Schools Champions for Children plans Lights On Afterschool activity The Port Clinton City School District Afterschool Program, Champions for Children, will be decorating brown grocery bags from Kroger and Community Market. The decorated bags will be used for groceries Oct. 22 at the two stores. Mayor Debbie Hymore-Tester also wrote a Proclamation recognizing the importance of afterschool care. A copy of the proclamation will be posted at each of the schools. The grocery bags will be one of 7,500

events around the nation that day as part of the seventh annual Lights On Afterschool, organized by the Afterschool Alliance with National Presenting Sponsor the JCPenney Afterschool Fund. Champions for Children provides three of the significant contributions to Port Clinton: keeping kids safe and healthy, helping them learn and relieving working parents of worries about their children’s activities during the afternoon hours.

Champions for Children is a self-supported, afterschool enrichment program available through the Port Clinton City School District and receives funding for scholarships from the United Way. Champions for Children opened in 1996 and received a 21st Century Community Learning Center grant for education in 1997. It now serves 100 children, providing a healthy snack, homework assistance, mentoring, tutoring, sports, recreation, mathematics and dozens

of other enrichment activities with community partners. The Afterschool Alliance is a nonprofit public awareness and advocacy organization working to ensure that all children and youth have access to afterschool programs by the year 2010.

Redskinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 4-4 after Friday win BY J. PATRICK EAKEN Port Clinton quarterback Derek Colston and company completed 14 of 15 passes for 240 yards and two touchdowns as the Redskins evened their overall record to 4-4 with a 29-13 Sandusky Bay Conference victory over visiting Sandusky St. Mary Central Catholic. The Redskins improved to 2-3 in the SBC with the victory while St. Mary fell to 1-7 overall, 0-5 in the conference. Port Clinton got on the board first as Richard Harris ran three yards for a touchdown with 5:45 remaining in the first quarter. Addison Rospertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conversion kick was blocked by the Panthers, but the Redskins had an early 6-0 lead. The Panthers retaliated minutes later, scoring on a three yard touchdown run and added a conversion kick to take a 7-6 lead with 4:14 remaining in the quarter. But PC came right back on a 55 yard touchdown pass from Colston to Eric Reynolds as Port Clinton grabbed a 12-7 lead with 3:55 remaining in the first quar-

ter. Harris ran in the conversion two points as PC led 14-7, which held up for the remainder of the quarter. In the second quarter, PC got on the board again as Harris ran for six points from three yards out. After Rospertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conversion kick, PC led 21-7 with 9:35 remaining in the first quarter. After a scoreless third quarter, Colston hooked up with Allen Tigner for a 45yard touchdown pass with 8:15 remaining. Colston completed a two-point conversion pass to Harris, and the Redskins led 29-7. SMCC got on the board one more time on a 10-yard touchdown run with 1:08 remaining in the game. Port Clinton had 18 first downs to St. Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15, and had 329 total yards to the Panthersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 223. The Redskins had 89 yards rushing, while St. Mary had 165 yards rushing and 58 passing on 5-of-9 completions.

HURON 20 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; OAK HARBOR 7 BY J. PATRICK EAKEN The Huron Tigers broke open a 7-7 halftime tie with two second half touchdowns in defeating visiting Oak Harbor Friday night 20-7. Tiger running back Justin Hicks ran for 152 yards on 16 carries, including one for 52 yards. Derek Dowell added 83 yards rushing for the Tigers, which had 263 total net yards rushing. Oak Harbor scored first on a 36-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Steve Young to Zack Priesman with 5:59 remaining in the first half. Myles Backus added the conversion kick, and the Rockets were enjoying a 7-0 lead. But with 58 seconds remaining in the half, Tiger back Brian Bollenbacher ran three yards for a touchdown and Tony Lane added the conversion kick to tie the game at 7. Huron scored again in the third quarter on a 2-yard run by Hicks with 4:06 remaining, and then with 34 seconds remaining in the game scored another touchdown on a 2-yard run by Bollenbacher. Huron kick because of a bad snap, but Lane converted on the late touchdown. Huron had 286 net yards; Oak Harbor had 163 total yards. Huron had 12 first downs to Oak Harborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10. One of the highlights for Oak Harbor was kickoff returns, as Burkett had one 21-yard return and Matt Gandee had a 31-yard return. Oak Harbor (2-6 overall, 1-4 SBC) hosts Clyde this Friday, which may come into town sky-high after upsetting Perkins and taking sole possession of the Sandusky Bay Conference lead.

TOLEDO CHRISTIAN 48 DANBURY 14 BY J. PATRICK EAKEN Danbury scored two fourth quarter touchdowns, but it was too little too late as Toledo Christian went on to a 48-14 rout to set up a potential Toledo Area Athletic Conference championship game between the Eagles and the Northwood Rangers this Friday night. Danbury running back George Biedenbach came into the game one of the Toledo Area Athletic Conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading rushers with 523 yards on 117 carries (4.7 per carry), and he did not disappoint against the Eagles scoring all 14 Danbury points on running plays. Biedenbach scored both fourth quarter touchdowns for the Lakers on a 5-yard and 15-yard runs, and Biedenbach added the two-point conversion attempt after his second touchdown. TC quarterback Nick Rightnowar lighted up the field, passing for 139 yards, and Eagle running back Graham Miller ran for another 131 yards and two touchdowns. Danbury (1-7 overall, 0-5 TAAC) hosts Ottawa Hills this Friday. The Green Bears (3-5, 2-2) will come into town after being routed by Northwood Friday night, 64-24.

Plan for retirement â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this week and every week You might not see it on your calendar, but Oct. 18 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 24 is National Save for Retirement Week. This event, endorsed by Congress, is designed to promote the benefits of saving for retirement and to encourage workers to take full advantage of their employersponsored retirement plans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so you may want to use this week as a starting point to do just that. For many of us, the need to boost our retirement savings is critical. In fact, some 53 percent of Americans report that the total value of their householdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s savings and investments, excluding the value of their primary home and any defined benefit plans, is less than $25,000, according to the 2009 Retirement Confidence Survey, sponsored by the Employee Benefit Research Institute. Also, the decline in popularity of these defined benefit plans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the traditional pension plans that make payments based primarily on years of service â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is one reason that saving for retirement has become such a major issue. From 1986 to 2008, participation in defined benefit plans among fulltime workers in private industry declined from 76 percent to 24 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In many cases, these defined benefit plans have been replaced by defined contribution plans, such as 401(k) plans â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which means that much of the responsibility of adequately funding retirement has shifted from the employer to the individual. Given these factors, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear that you must be proactive in building resources to achieve the retirement lifestyle youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve envisioned. So, consider taking the following steps: s #ONTRIBUTE TO YOUR K OR OTHER EMployer-sponsored plan. If possible, try to put in as much as you can afford to your 401(k) or other tax-advantaged, employersponsored plan, such as a 403(b) or 457(b). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to spread your 401(k) dollars among the available investments in a way that reflects your risk tolerance and time

horizon. And as your income increases, try to increase your 401(k) contributions. At a minimum, put in enough to earn your employerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s match, if one is offered. Due to the prolonged economic slump, some employers have cut back or eliminated their 401(k) matching contributions, but if one is offered, take advantage of it. s /PEN AN )2! %VEN if you contribute to a 401(k), you are probably still eligible to open an IRA. . A traditional IRA can grow on a tax-deferred basis, and a Roth IRA grows tax-free, provided youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had your account for at least five years and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begin taking withdrawals until youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 591/2. Plus, you can usually find that an IRA provides more investment options that a 401(k) plan. s 2EBALANCE YOUR INVESTMENT PORTFOLIO regularly. During the long bear market, many new retirees faced difficulties when they were forced to tap into investment portfolios whose value had dropped significantly. You can help avoid this problem by periodically reviewing and rebalancing your investments. So for example, if you know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to retire within the next five years, you may want to consider shifting some of your assets into shorter-term investments that may not be as susceptible to market volatility. You can speak with a financial advisor, who can help you review your specific situation. By making the right moves, you can turn every week into a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Save for Retirementâ&#x20AC;? week. And youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably be glad you did, once your actual retirement week arrives. This article was written by Edward Jones for use by Gary Coon, Edward Jones Financial Advisor.
