Everyday CHEAPSKATE

®

by Mary Hunt By Samantha Weaver

* It was influential American science-fiction author Philip K. Dick who made the following sage observation: “Sometimes the appropriate response to reality is to go insane.” * The skin of the African elephant, the largest living land animal in the world, weighs 2,000 pounds by itself, and there are more than 60,000 muscles in its trunk alone. * You’ve almost certainly heard of narcolepsy, a medical condition that causes sufferers to sleep excessively, sometimes up to 18 hours a day. You’re probably not familiar with philagrypnia, though. People with this condition -- I won’t call them “sufferers” -- require only three or four hours of sleep a day. What would you do with all that extra time? * If you’re like most people, the length of your footprint is approximately 15 percent of your height. * While at a Turkish bath in San Francisco, Samuel Clemens -- better known to us as Mark Twain -- got involved in a chat with a local fireman. This may not seem at all interesting until you learn the name of that long-ago firefighter: Tom Sawyer. The author liked the name so much that today, American schoolkids all know it. * There is a law on the books in Maine that prohibits having your shoes untied in public. I assume that this one is not much enforced. * Ever had to make a large claim to your insurance company? If you thought it was a pain to fill out all the paperwork and explain what happened, consider the plight of the poor soul who had to handle the claim in 2006 when a guard dog mauled a teddy bear that once belonged to Elvis Presley -the stuffed animal was valued at $80,000. *** Thought for the Day: “What this country needs is more free speech worth listening to.” -- Hansell B. Duckett (c) 2018 King Features Synd., Inc.

Simple Record Keeping to Tame the Paper Monster

If the paper monster has you buried under ® an avalanche of receipts, bank statements, ATM slips, investment records, paycheck stubs and by Mary Hunt bills, the good news is you can probably throw most of it away without worry when you have a simple record- keeping routine. But before you fire up the shredder, you need to know what to keep, and for how long.

Everyday CHEAPSKATE

PICK A SPOT If you don’t have a designated place for paperwork, it’s going to end up in piles all over the house. The secret to taming the paper monster is to designate one room, corner, drawer, file cabinet or closet in which you can store all of your bills, current records and paperwork. You’ll need a trash can, file folders, some kind of box or container and a place close by where you can write. Keep all of your important papers in this one place, and if you will be keeping it for more than one month, create a file folder. It might be labeled “tax-deductible,” another “insurance” and so on.

TOSS ALL YOU CAN Monthly: You can shred ATM receipts, bank deposit slips, credit card receipts and sales STICK TO IT receipts at the end of each month once you have Get into a routine of tossing what you can recorded the amounts and reconciled your bank and then filing the rest.

YOUR

SOCIAL SECURITY by Tom Margenau

Sometimes the Government Giveth and Then Taketh Away Q:

I am 66 years old, and I get my own small Social Security retirement benefit. Because it is so small, I get some additional spousal benefits off my husband’s record. I am still working. I just got a letter from the Social Security Administration telling me that my retirement benefit is being increased by $20 per month because of my most recent earnings. But at the same time, the letter said my spousal benefit is being reduced by $20. I don’t get this. Why is the SSA giving me extra money but then turning around and asking for it back?

A:

Wow! It’s as if the government slipped a $20 bill into your right pocket and then sneaked its hand into your left pocket and took out 20 bucks! What’s going on? It just doesn’t seem fair, does it? But I think that when you read my explanation, it will make sense to you. You said you are getting Social Security benefits off two accounts -- your own and your husband’s. You didn’t give me dollar amounts, and it will be easier to explain what is going on by using an example, so I will make them up. Let’s say you are getting $300 per month from your own record. And let’s further say you are due $550 per month in spousal benefits. As a general principle, when you are due

2018 ing Features Syndicate Inc. ©©2015 King Features Synd., Inc. 2018K King Features Synd.,, Inc.

For example, it sounds as if you were born in 1950. And let’s say the lowest year of earnings used in your retirement computation was 1970, when you made, say, $7,000. The indexing factor for 1970 earnings for people born in 1950 is 6.74. That means that when the SSA figured your retirement benefit, it used $47,180 ($7,000 times 6.74) instead of just $7,000 as your 1970 earnings. You said you made $40,000 last year. Using my example of $7,000 as your lowest yearly earnings, you are right that your current earnings greatly exceed that level. But the more important question is this: Do they exceed the inflation-adjusted amount that was used in your retirement computation? Back to my example, $40,000 is less than $47,180. So that means your benefit will not be refigured because you are currently making less than the lowest inflation-indexed yearly earnings in your benefit computation. Now let’s turn the tables a bit. If you were currently making $60,000 per year, that would higher than the amount in the inflation-adjusted low year in your original benefit computation. Then you would be due an increase. And when you are due an increase, there are two things you should know. First, the increase is automatically I’m 68 years old. I started collect- calculated by the Social Security Administration. ing Social Security when I was 66, but I’m still There is nothing you need to do. Second, the working.

two benefits, you get the one that pays the higher rate. So normally, you would just get the $550 spousal benefit on your husband’s account. But there is a rule that says that if you are due anything on your own account, it has to be paid to you first. Then the SSA makes up the difference with whatever extra you are due as a spouse. So using my example, the SSA would pay you your $300-per-month retirement benefit, and then you would get an extra $250 from your husband to take you up to the $550 level. You said that you are still working and that your extra earnings boosted your own retirement benefit by $20. So, back to my example, that means your own monthly rate went up to $320. But your extra earnings had nothing to do with your husband’s Social Security check or with your share of that check. So you are still due $550 in spousal benefits. That means the SSA now pays you your own $320 first and then gives you an extra $230 in spousal benefits rather than the $250 spousal rate you were due when your own benefit was just $300, to take you up to the same $550 level you were due with or without your additional retirement benefits.

Sour taste is, in fact, a common symptom. This is the “reflux” of the condition’s name, since it refers to the backward movement of stomach acid -- all the way into the back of the throat or even into the mouth. Heartburn is perhaps the most common symptom, but so is difficulty swallowing. This is more common in people with longstanding symptoms. Antacids neutralize the acid in the stomach but do not prevent the reflux of stomach contents. Widely prescribed medications, including H2 blockers like Zantac or Pepcid (“H2” is a type of histamine receptor, a stimulus for acid production) and proton pump inhibitors (like Prilosec or Nexium, which directly reduce acid secretion), also act on the acid in the stomach, and do not reduce reflux. In order to reduce reflux, I recommend eating smaller meals, not reclining for two to three hours after eating, losing weight if appropriate and avoiding products that weaken the lower esophageal sphincter, the valve-like muscle at the bottom of the esophagus. Alcohol and tobacco are the biggest offenders. Raising the head of the bed (traditionally with bricks or wood blocks under the legs, but foam wedges on top of the mattress are also good) uses gravity to help the refluxed acid get out of the esophagus. Reducing reflux or acid at night is most important. While the body is in a horizontal position, the acid can stay longer in the esophagus and cause damage.

That’s where you can help. Volunteer once or more a week to drive a veteran to medical appointments. On the way back, ask if you should make a pit stop at the grocery store or anywhere else, if your rider feels well enough. Think about it: If you don’t have a car, even just bringing home groceries can be a chore. Or maybe a fast-food burger would be welcomed by a veteran who’s basically been homebound due to lack of transportation. Call the Voluntary Services office at the closest Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center to offer your help. The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) also has a nationwide transportation network that takes sick and disabled veterans to all of the medical facilities in the country. If you’re a veteran who needs transportation to a medical facility, the DAV has a directory that can connect you with a ride. Go to www.dav.org, click on Veterans, and scroll down the drop-down list to “Need a Ride?” Click the link to the DAV Hospital Service Coordinator Directory and look for the coordinator nearest you. Want to offer rides or volunteer locally? Go to www.dav.org and click on Help DAV to learn more about ways you can give back to veterans. * * * Freddy Groves regrets that he cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into his column whenever possible.

*** DEAR DR. ROACH: I am very concerned about my 81-year-old sister. She is 4 feet 10 inches tall and weighs 78 pounds. This is a new low weight for her. She recently had bloodwork done and was told she has an underactive thyroid and should take medication for it. She also has a colon problem and COPD. I thought that with an underactive thyroid, you gained weight, not lost. Can you explain the difference between underactive and overactive thyroid? -- C.K.

What You Need to Know About Reverse Mortgages DEAR SAVVY SENIOR: What can you tell me about reverse mortgages for retirees? After seeing all the ads in the paper and on TV, my wife and I are contemplating getting one. However, we've also heard some cautions about doing this, and I want to make sure we know what we’re getting into before we commit to anything. -- Running Short Dear Running: For retirees who own their home and want to stay living there but could use some extra cash, a reverse mortgage is a viable financial tool. But there’s a lot to know and consider to be absolutely sure it’s a good option for you.

Let’s start with the basics.

A reverse mortgage is a unique type of loan that allows older homeowners to borrow money against the equity in their house (or condo) that doesn’t have to be repaid until the homeowner dies, sells the house or moves out for at least 12 months. At that point, you or your heirs will have to pay back the loan plus accrued interest and fees, but you will never owe more than the value of your home. It’s also important to understand that with a reverse mortgage, you, not the bank, own the house, so you’re still required to pay your property taxes and homeowners insurance. Failing to keep these current can result in foreclosure. To be eligible, you must: 1) be 62 years of age or older 2) own your own home (or owe only a small balance)

Page 13

3) currently be living in the home full time.

miscellaneous expenses. Most fees can be deducted for the loan amount to reduce your out-ofpocket cost at closing.

You will also need to undergo a financial assessment to determine whether you can afford to continue paying your property taxes and insurance. Depending on your financial situation, you may be required to put part of your loan into an escrow account to pay these future obligations. If the financial assessment finds that you cannot pay your insurance and taxes and still have enough cash left to live on, you will be denied.

To receive your money, you can opt for a lump sum, a line of credit, regular monthly checks or a combination of these.

Q:

by Anne McCollam

Morris Chair Has a Mission Q:

The chair seen in this photo has been passed down in our family for generations. The frame is oak and has never been refinished. The back is adjustable, so it can recline, and it is excellent condition. We plan to keep the chair in the family and would like to learn more about its histor y and insurance value.

A:

You have a Morris recliner, and the frame is Arts and Crafts/Mission. The design for chairs with slotted adjustable backs can be attributed to William Morris. Morris, Marshall Faulkner & Co. in London introduced the chair around 1866. The creative ideas of designer William Morris and British scholar John Ruskin ushered in the Arts and Crafts/Mission movement in the late 1880s. Morris chair design is attributed The simplicto William Morris. ity of the craftsmanship, the dignity of the work and the integrity of the design were a reaction to the curvilinear and heavy, ornate lines of the mass-produced Victorian era factory furniture. The movement rapidly spread to the United States. The style is defined by quarter-sawn oak, corbels, mortise-and-tenon construction and sturdy, straight lines. A batch of United States makers of Arts and Crafts soon popped up including Gustav Stickley, the Stickley Brothers, Charles Limbert, Shop of the Crafters and the Roycrofters. Many shops signed their furniture. Your cushions appear to be reupholstered; they were probably originally leather.

This mark is on a cut-glass pedestal bowl that I have. It stands over 13 inches tall, is in perfect condition and is decorated with hobstars and a diamond pattern. I plan to give it to my daughter and would like to provide her with some information on its maker, vintage and value.

H. P. Sinclaire and Company was located in Corning, New York.

A:

The mark you enclosed was used by H. P. Sinclaire and Company. It was located in Corning, New York, from 1904 to 1928. Before opening his company, Sinclaire started out learning his craft as a cutter and designer. His company bought blanks from other glass factories and employed a crew of talented designers and cutters. It is believed that all of the pieces were signed with the exception of those that were imperfect. Your cut-glass pedestal bowl would probably be worth $225 to $325. * * * Address your questions to Anne McCollam, P. O. Box 247, Notre Dame, IN 46556.

to more than 100. • Can you name all six of the hosts of the game show “Family Feud”? The program debuted in 1976 with Richard Dawson at the helm, where he remained until 1985. After a three-year hiatus, Ray Combs stepped in as host in 1988, and remained until 1994. Dawson then came back for a single season. Tragically, Combs committed suicide in 1996, in the process of being treated for severe depression. After another pause in production, comedian Louie Anderson took over, hosting from 1999 until 2002, when “Home Improvement” star Richard Karn replaced Anderson. John O’Hurley was next in line when Karn departed in 2006. O’Hurley hosted until 2010 when current host Steve Harvey joined the show. Since Harvey took over, ratings have increased dramatically, moving the show into the top five most popular syndicated TV shows in America. 

Swinging the club in circles and arcs when you’re trying to hit a shot straight can be quite confusing. Yet, that’s the nature of the club travel relative to a target line. The downswing can be thought of as having a diagonal component to the target line that should help you get it on the right track.
