Tired Souls: The Montgomery Bus Boycott at Joy Performance Center January 17 To honor the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Mauney Memorial Library, and the City of Kings Mountain welcome Mike Wiley to perform, Tired Souls: The Montgomery Bus Boycott at the Joy Performance Center on January 17. Tired Souls opens in Montgomery, Alabama on December 1, 1955 – the day Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on a city bus to a white man. Her determination was the catalyst that inspired Montgomery’s black citizens to abandon all travel on city buses until they were no longer forced to sit in the back or stand when a white person boarded. But there were others who came before Mrs. Parks and laid the groundwork for this pivotal moment. Tired Souls introduces audiences to Jo Ann Robinson, Claudette Colvin, and others so instrumental in lighting a fire under the Civil Rights movement and changing the course of U.S. history forever. Immediately after production, the audience

Grover, with four felony counts of indecent liberties with a child.

rently in custody at the Gaston County Jail, being held without bond, pending a first appearance in court. The investigation continues and anyone with information is asked to contact Det. T.D.

GPD charges suspect with armed robberies and attempted murder Detectives from the Gastonia Police Department (GPD) have arrested and charged Charles Thomas Cole, age 33, of Gastonia, with multiple felonies, including the December 29 attempted murder of three Gastonia Police Department officers. Cole was arrested December 30 at a residence in Gastonia. The following incidents were investigated by GPD detectives who suspect were committed by Cole: On December 17, GPD officers responded to a law office located in the 100 block of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Way for the report of an armed robbery that just occurred. The investigation determined that the adult male victim and the adult female victim were outside the office building when the suspect approached them. The suspect displayed a handgun, threatened the victims with the gun, and demanded property. The suspect stole property from the male victim and fled the area. On December 29, GPD officers responded to a restaurant located in the 2000 block of W. Franklin Boulevard for an armed robbery that had just occurred. Responding officers determined that the suspect entered the restaurant, threatened employees with a handgun, and demanded

COLE cash from the business. The suspect stole cash from the business and then threatened a 67-year-old female business customer. The suspect stole money from this victim as well. After this robbery, the suspect fled the business and was last seen entering a dark-colored Dodge Ram truck that was parked in a nearby parking lot and then driving out of the area. Officers at the business provided a description of the suspect’s truck to additional officers who were in the area. A few minutes after the robbery, GPD officers observed a truck matching the suspect’s description driving on N. King Street at W. Rankin Avenue. GPD officers activated their emergency equipment to initiate a traffic stop on the truck. The truck stopped on N. King Street prior to W. Rankin Avenue. During the stop, the suspect fired multiple rounds at officers with

several of those rounds striking a marked GPD police car. GPD officers returned fire on the suspect. After officers returned fire, the suspect sped off in the truck. Officers attempted to pursue the truck but could not locate the suspect’s vehicle. On December 30, the suspect’s vehicle was located parked in front of a residence on N. Pryor Street. GPD detectives responded and obtained a search warrant for the residence. During the search warrant, investigators located Cole and evidence from the robberies inside the home. Cole was arrested and charged with the following: • Seven counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon • Three counts of attempted first-degree murder (government officials) • First-degree kidnapping • Two counts of possession of a firearm by a felon • Larceny of a firearm Cole is being held on a five-million-dollar bond. Regarding Arrest of Charles Cole Gaston County Police Chief Brittain said, “We are thankful for the peaceful arrest of Mr. Cole. The incidents leading up to his arrest show the dangers that our officers face. We appreciate the support of the public and dedication of our staff.”

Dole recalls packaged salads processed in Bessemer City The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, along with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, are working to investigate a multistate outbreak of Listeria monocytogenes infections potentially linked with the consumption of Dole packaged salad. Dole Fresh Vegetables, Inc., is voluntarily recalling from the market all Dole-branded and private label packaged salads processed at its Bessemer City, NC and its Yuma, AZ production facilities due to possible contamination with Listeria and is suspending operations temporarily at both facilities to conduct an extensive cleaning and sanitation protocol. To date, this outbreak has been associated with 16 illnesses, 12 hospitalizations and two deaths spanning the following states: IA, ID, MD, MI, MN, NC, NV, OH, OR, PA, TX, UT, WI. Products subject to the voluntary recall are identified by a product lot code beginning with the either the letter “N” or “Y” in the upper right-hand corner of the package and will have a “Best if Used By” date between November 30, 2021, and January 8, 2022. Consumers who still have any of these products in their refrigerators are urged not to consume the product and to discard it immediately.

This suspension of operations and recall are being performed voluntarily by Dole out of an abundance of caution, in collaboration with the Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The decision to suspend operations and recall all products from these facilities was made after analyzing the strain of Listeria monocytogenes isolated in a single package of Dolebranded Garden Salad produced in the Bessemer City facility and a single package of shredded iceberg lettuce produced in the Yuma, AZ facility. Both of those items were randomly sampled by the state of Georgia and the state of Michigan, respectively, and were a genetic match with a strain of Listeria monocytogenes which FDA and CDC believe is responsible for sixteen illnesses since 2014. Listing of products subject to each of these recalls is set forth below. Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths

among pregnant women. Recalled salad items from the Bessemer City facility were distributed in the states of AL, CT, FL, GA, KY, LA, MA, MD, MI, MS, NC, NY, OH, PA, SC, TN, and VA. Recalled salad items from the Yuma facility were distributed in the states of AL, AZ, CT, FL, IA, IL, IN, KY, LA, MA, MI, MN, MS, NC, ND, NY, OH, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, and WI. No products produced from Dole facilities in Springfield, OH (production/lot codes beginning with “W”) or Soledad, CA (production/lot codes beginning with “B”) are included in these voluntary recalls. In addition, no other Dole products, including “readyto-eat” salad products, fresh fruit, and field-packed fresh vegetables, are part of these voluntary recalls and are safe to consume. Dole retailers have been advised to check store shelves and warehouse inventories to confirm that no recalled product is available for purchase by consumers. Retailer and consumer questions about the voluntary recalls should be directed to the Dole Consumer Response Center at 800-356-3111, Monday - Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time. Dole Fresh Vegetables is coordinating closely with regulatory officials

New Year, New Beginnings N e w Year’s Eve and N e w Year’s Day have always been a time of Pastor reflection Jeff Longwell Penley’s Chapel and purChurch pose in my life. My thoughts on New Year’s Eve usually go back across the previous twelve months and I think about what has

transpired in my life and in my family. I consider where I am now compared to where I was at the beginning of the year. Am I growing in my faith? Have I learned from mistakes in my past? Has my situation improved in my health, finances, or relationships? Then as the calendar page turns to a new year, my mind turns toward the future and how I will resolve to do better. New Year’s resolutions,

they call them. Many will make them and then give up on them within a month or so. This is the time of year that most gym memberships are sold and new diets are begun. Many people find that within weeks or even days, their resolve has begun to fade away. This can lead to feeling defeated and discouraged. When we fail in the good things we try to do, it is simply a reminder that we are human and we need God’s grace and

mercy in our lives. The prophet Jeremiah tells us that God’s mercies are new every morning, and His compassions do not fail! (Lamentations 3:2223) The Psalmist David reminds us that, “As a father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear Him. For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.” (Psalm 103:1324) This doesn’t mean that we should cease trying to do good, but rather

learn to trust in the One who is good. Our Father is not waiting for us to fall down so that He can condemn us. He is a good Father who picks us up when we fall. He is, “a very present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1) Proverbs 24:16 tells us that, “A righteous man may fall seven times and rise again.” That is the key. Keep getting up. Keep pushing forward. So instead of feeling discouraged about where you are in your life, look

to Jesus. And if you don’t know Him, let me encourage you to believe in Him today. Jesus is God’s Son who died on an old rugged cross to pay the penalty for your sins and for mine. On the third day He arose from the dead in victory! If you will put all of your trust in Him, this new year can be a year of new beginnings and new life for you today!

Zeke Cannedy cans school record 53 points in Mountaineers’ annual Christmas tourney Gaston Day defeated Kings Mountain 83-74 in the championship game of last week’s Mountaineer Christmas Tournament at Donald L. Parker Gymnasium, but all eyes were on KM’s Zeke Cannedy who stripped the nets for 53 points and a new KMHS men’s scoring record. The KMHS women’s scoring mark of 58 points was set by Judy Medlin against Belmont in 1958. Cannedy’s effort, as well as his teammates’, kept the Mountaineers close to one of North Carolina’s private school powerhouses but the visitors outscored the home team 21-16 in the fourth quarter to clinch the victory. The Spartans managed to barely lead after each of the first three periods – 21-20 after the first, 46-41 at the half and 62-58 going into the final eight minutes. Included in Cannedy’s 51 point total were 10 three pointers, also the most any Mountaineer has ever

canned in a single game. The Mountaineers advanced to the title game by rolling past Davidson Day 88-36 in the opening round and squeezing past a very good 4A Charlotte Independence team 61-60 in the semi-finals. Maddox James’ put back of a missed free throw attempt at the buzzer gave the Mountaineers the semi-finals victory. James led the scoring with 21 points, Curtis Simpson had 12 and Cannedy 10. Kings Mountain returns to Big South Conference action Friday at South Point with girls action beginning at 6 p.m. The KM teams return to Parker Gymnasium on Tuesday, January 11 when

the Stuart Cramer Purple Storm comes to town.

8 (Reasonable) New Year’s Resolutions for Grievers January 1st is just another day for some people but if you have recently lost a loved one, starting the New Year without them can be challenging. A new year that once began as a fresh start with joy and excitement can be a painful reminder of the loved one who isn’t here to share it. Whether we welcome, dread, or ignore a new year may depend on where we are in our grief process. Acknowledging our grief, we can choose to make softer resolutions for the new year. Below are 8 “reasonable” resolutions to consider: 1. Go easy on yourself: Don’t pressure yourself or allow others to pressure you into feeling you should be “over” the loss. Being kind to yourself may be the best resolution a griever can make. 2. Spend time with people you like: Resolve to put a little effort into connecting with others who make you happy and well supported.

3. Engage in one hobby or activity that makes you feel good: Any enjoyable beneficial activity is important to your mental health. 4. Be honest about how you feel: Finding ways to express your true feelings in places where you feel safe to do so can be beneficial. 5. Speak your loved one’s name: Keep remembering stories, their sayings, favorite songs, books, and share those memories with others. 6. Embrace one of your loved ones’ values, hopes or dreams: It may take work, but will feel great to carry out that passion or dream. 7. Support someone else: Grief changes us forever, but you may eventually find the wisdom, strength, and insight

to give as well as receive. 8. Plan ways to remember and seek formal support through support groups, Memory Bear/Pillow workshops, Grief walks, etc., and resolve to take the first steps at the beginning of the year. The Grief Support Team at Hospice Cleveland County offers services to families they have served as well as the larger community. They will be by your side following the loss of a loved one to help provide grief support. Please call 704-487-4677 or visit to learn more. You can also visit their Facebook Page and YouTube Channel for videos on Hospice & Palliative Care as well as other topics.

stay informed of changing weather conditions, and to have a way to receive weather alerts,” said Governor Cooper. “A little preparation before severe or winter weather arrives can help avoid inconveniences and emergencies later.” Severe storms occurred overnight Sunday through Monday morning across eastern North Carolina and snow fell across portions of western North Carolina. Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories were issued by the National Weather Service for much of the mountains and far northwestern Piedmont. Plan for future storm warnings and weather advisories now. To be prepared for severe weather and winter weather, follow these tips: • Stay tuned to your local weather forecast. • Have a way to receive weather alerts, by downloading a weather app on your phone, or using a NOAA Weather Alert Radio. • Keep your family emergency kit stocked and ready.

Don’t fall for fake streaming service activation prompts If you’ve signed up for a streaming service, such as Netflix, Disney+, PBS Passport, or Hulu, be careful when activating your account. Unfortunately, scammers are trying to steal login information and other personal data with fake websites that appear to come from the streaming service provider. How the scam works. You purchased a subscription to a streaming service. To activate it, you need to log in on your web browser. A quick search brings up several links with the streaming service’s official name. You click on the first result. However, the website doesn’t look quite right. For example, as soon as you click the link, the site prompts you to update your web browser. Scammers have set up a lookalike website to trick you into downloading malware. If you click “Update” or any other button, you could download a virus that gives

scammers access to your personal information. It’s best to close the page immediately. Other times, when you click on the search result, you’re directed to a website that features the official logo and branding of your streaming service. However, it looks a little, or sometimes a lot, different than what you remember. If you enter your user ID and password on a lookalike site, it goes into the hands of scammers. These con artists then have the information they need to access your real account on the official website–as well as anywhere else you use that username and password. How to avoid streaming service scams: • Always double check that you are visiting an official website. Scammers can make fake websites look legitimate in search engine’s results, but they can’t copy a website’s official URL. Before you click on a website, take a close

look at the URL. Check to that it is spelled correctly. Scammers hope you’ll overlook this and click without a second thought. • Be wary of ads and sponsored links. Sometimes scammers use ads to get their lookalike website to appear first in the search results. Remember, just because a website is at the top of the list doesn’t mean it’s the official website. • Be careful with your login information. Always make sure you are on an official website before entering your username and password. Never enter this information into thirdparty websites. Keep in mind, too, that legitimate customer service representatives generally do not ask for passwords over the phone or through an email.

gov for instructions on assembling a kit if you do not have one. In case of power outages: • Use battery powered sources of light to avoid fire. • Do not use generators or grills inside your home or garage. Deadly carbon monoxide fumes can accumulate and cause illness or death. For winter weather:

• Stock adequate supplies of heating fuel (propane, oil, firewood). • Bring pets inside during winter weather. • Try not to travel. If travel is needed, keep a winter emergency supplies kit in your vehicle: • Ice scraper/ snow brush. Clear your car completely before driving. • Sand or salt for improved traction if you get

stuck. • Snow shovel. • Enough clothing and blankets to keep you warm. • Snacks and water. • Insulate pipes and allow faucets to drip a little. Running water, even at a trickle, helps keep pipes from freezing. • Learn how to shut off your home’s main water valves in case a pipe bursts.

Self-improvement strategies to make resolutions a reality Self-improvement is at the heart of the majority of New Year’s resolutions. Individuals resolving to read more or live a more active lifestyle or travel are all attempting better themselves. Resolutions can be hard to keep, as the hectic pace of daily life can make it hard to find time for new activities. Individuals who want to see their resolutions through to the end can try utilizing various self-improvement strategies to help them achieve their goals. • Share your goals with others whom you respect. Resolutions may involve intensely personal goals, but sharing those goals with people you respect can have a profound effect on your ability to achieve them. A recent study from researchers at The Ohio State University examined the effects of sharing target goals with others. In the study, which was published in the Journal of Applied Psychology, 171 undergraduates were asked to move a slider on a computer to the number 50 as many times as they could within a given time frame. After doing this, they were asked to do it again

but this time they were asked to set a specific goal regarding how many times they could do it within the allotted time. Someone identified as a “lab assistant” then went to check on their goals, but the assistants were presented differently to different groups, and one group was not checked on at all. One assistant was well-dressed and introduced as a doctoral student, while the other was casually dressed and identified as a community college student. Researchers found that those who shared their goals with the doctoral level assistant reported feeling more committed to their goal and in fact performed better than participants in the other groups. Researchers concluded that individuals who share their goals with people they respect are more likely to commit to those goals than people who keep their goals to themselves. • Start small, but don’t stay small. Setting small goals may not make individuals feel like they’re en route to the dramatic changes they feel they need. However, research indicates that incremental goals can provide the early motivation people need to achieve larger

goals. However, researchers at Peking University in China discovered that, while incremental goals helped people make more early progress, that progress waned if they did not eventually transition to their larger goals. Individuals can use their early successes to instill the confidence that makes them believe they can achieve their larger goals. • Change your perception of setbacks. Many a New Year’s resolution has fallen by the wayside due to setbacks. For example, someone who aspires to lose 20 lbs. may be trying to lose one pound per week for 20 weeks running. If an individual fails to lose that pound in a given week or even gains weight, that setback may compel that person to abandon the larger goal. But instead of seeing and even accepting that setback as a sign of failure,

individuals should see it was a learning experience that can ultimately help them achieve their larger goal. In the weight loss scenario, individuals who fail to lose a pound in a given week can examine their habits over the previous seven days. Identifying why an incremental goal was not achieved can reassure individuals that they will know how to avoid those same pitfalls in the future. Self-improvement strategies can help individuals making New Year’s resolutions see those resolutions through to their successful conclusion.


than their bodies can handle. Older children and teenagers can handle more challenging paths, and parents of children in these age groups can even consider incorporating mountain biking into their cycling routines. • Cooking: There are plenty of family-friendly hobbies that can be enjoyed at home. Cooking is one such hobby, and it can have some surprising benefits for youngsters. According to Nemours KidsHealth®, cooking can be a great way for parents to reinforce basic math skills kids are learning at school. Older kids who don’t need such lessons can benefit from cooking with their parents by learning to prepare nutritious meals that can lay the foundation for healthy eating habits throughout adulthood. • Painting: Painting together as a family can benefit

both adults and children in unique ways. Harvard Medical School notes that studies have found that artistic expression can help people with depression and anxiety. Young children, including preschoolers, also can benefit from painting, which helps them develop both their fine and gross motor skills and improves hand-eye coordination. Parents of adolescents should know that painting has also been found to be a productive outlet for teenagers to express themselves, and the process of seeing a painting project through from inception to completion can boost confidence and self-esteem. As the new year dawns and resolutions are made, families can look to various hobbies they can engage in together to make the year ahead both happy and healthy.

can benefit entire families. A 2015 study published in the journal Landscape and Urban Planning found that hiking can help to reduce feelings of anxiety. Hiking trails run the gamut from flat trails that are ideal for families that include young children to more challenging trails that require a little climbing. • Cycling: Cycling is another healthy, family-friendly hobby. The experts at MD Anderson Cancer Center note that cycling builds muscle, helps people maintain a healthy weight, releases endorphins that can make it easier to relieve and manage stress, and improves balance. Both adults and children can reap those rewards. When cycling with young children, parents can look for flat cycling paths that won’t discourage kids or require them to do more

As a result of a default in the obligations contained within the Promissory Note and Deed of Trust and the failure to carry out and perform the stipulation and agreements contained therein, the holder of the indebtedness secured by said Deed of Trust made demand to have the default cured, which was not met. Therefore, the undersigned Substitute Trustee will place for sale that parcel of land, including improvements thereon, situated, lying and being in the City of Kings Mountain, County of Cleveland, State of North Carolina, and being more particularly described in the heretofore referenced Deed of trust. Said sale will be a public auction to the highest bidder for cash, at the usual place of sale at the Cleveland County Courthouse, Shelby, North Carolina, on January 18, 2022 at 11:30 AM Address of Property: 903 Monroe Avenue, Kings Mountain, NC 28086Tax Parcel ID: 9090Present Record Owners: The Heirs of Flora B. Maddox The terms of the sale are that the real property hereinbefore described will be sold for cash to the highest bidder. A deposit of five percent (5%) of the amount of the bid or Seven Hundred Fifty Dollars ($750.00), whichever is greater, is required and must be tendered in the form of certified funds at the time of the sale. The successful bidder will be required to pay revenue stamps on the Trustee’s Deed, any Land Transfer Tax, and costs for recording the Trustee’s Deed. The real property hereinabove described is being offered for sale “AS IS, WHERE IS” and will be sold subject to all superior liens, unpaid taxes, special assessments and other encumbrances.

Furthermore, if the validity of the sale is challenged by any party, the Trustee in its sole discretion, if it believes the challenge to have merit, may declare the sale to be void and return the bid deposit.

Cybersecurity student competition can earn scholarships and advanced training Governor Roy Cooper is again encouraging high school students in North Carolina to explore careers in cybersecurity by participating in CyberStart America, a free online cybersecurity competition sponsored by the National Cyber Scholarship Foundation and SANS Institute. Any student in grades 9-12 can discover their aptitude for cybersecurity and computer science while also earning chances to win college scholarships. Complete details, including how to register, can be found at www.cyberstartamerica. org. "We have to evolve in the way we implement cybersecurity to help keep us safe from online threats,” Governor Cooper said. “Part of how we do that is by attracting the next generation of talented cybersecurity professionals to public service. CyberStart America

helps us do that." According to Cyber Seek, an initiative funded by the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education, there are 21,010 vacant cyber-related positions in North Carolina. Nationally, that number tops nearly 600,000. “Significant, high-profile cybersecurity events across the country this past year have highlighted how vulnerable we are to ransomware and other threats and have underscored how critical it is to protect and defend against them,” said James Weaver, state chief information officer and secretary of the N.C. Department of Information Technology. “Programs like CyberStart America help create educational pathways and opportunities to build a diverse and talented cyber pipeline to help address our future challenges.” CyberStart America is

a series of games in which students solve cybersecurity-related puzzles and explore related topics, such as code breaking, programming, networking and digital forensics. Students need no knowledge or experience in information technology or cybersecurity to participate. They learn everything they need to know in the

game. Students who do well can earn access to scholarships and advanced training. Last year, 1,165 North Carolina students participated in CyberStart America. Eighteen won college scholarships and the opportunity to participate in the Cyber Foundations Academy, a multi-week

NCDHHS expands water program to pay more water bills The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services announced January 4 an expansion to their Low-Income Household Water Assistance Program to now include all low-income households needing assistance in paying their water bill, regardless of whether it has been shut off or not. The program was launched last month with $38 million in federal funds that was given to our state to help pay water bills for North Carolina households that were affected by the

COVID-19 pandemic. The program was initially set up to only help households who had had their service disconnected, but after a lower than anticipated application rate, they are now expanding it to include all low-income households. “Due to the pandemic and its impact on our economy, many households are struggling to maintain their water service,” said NCDHHS Deputy Secretary Tara Myers in a press release. “LIHWAP will continue to help families in North Carolina keep

their water running, a basic human need that’s critical for good sanitation and better health.” To be eligible for the newly expanded water assistance program, a North Carolina household must include at least 1 US citizen or eligible non-citizen and make no more than 150% of the federal poverty level. The federal poverty level is dependent on how many members each household contains: Persons in family/household Poverty level For families/households

with more than 8 persons, add $4,540 for each additional person. 1 $12,880 2 $17,420 3 $21,960 4 $26,500 5 $31,040 6 $35,580 7 $40,120 8 $44,660 Individuals and families can apply now online at North Carolina households can apply through Sept. 30, 2023, or until all the funds are exhausted.

How to Get Your Affairs in Order Dear Savvy Senior, I would like to get my personal, legal and financial information organized so my kids will know what’s going on when I’m no longer around. Can you offer any tips on the best way to do this? Unorganized Emma

Dear Emma, Organizing your important papers and getting your personal and financial affairs in order is a smart idea and wonderful gift to your loved ones. Here are some tips to get you started. Get Organized The first step in getting your affairs in order is to gather up all your important personal, financial and legal information so you can arrange it in a format that will benefit you now, and your loved ones later. Then you’ll need to sit down and create various lists of important information and instructions of how you want certain things handled when you die or if you become incapacitated. Here’s a checklist of areas you need to focus on. PERSONAL INFORMATION • Contacts: Make a master list of names

and phone numbers of close friends, doctors, and professional advisers such as your lawyer, accountant, broker and insurance agent. • Medical information: Include a list of medications you take, along with any allergies and illnesses. • Personal documents: Include such items as your birth certificate, Social Security card, marriage license, military discharge papers, etc. • Secured places: List all the places you keep under lock and key such as safe deposit boxes, safe combination, security alarms, etc. • Digital assets: Make a list of all your digital assets, including everything from social media accounts to online banking accounts to home utilities that you manage online. It should include usernames and passwords. Use Rutgers Digital Assets Inventory Worksheet (njaes.rutgers. edu/money/pdfs/digital-assets-worksheet.pdf) as a guide. • Pets: If you have a pet, give instructions for the care of the animal. • End of life: Indicate your wishes for organ and tissue donation and write out your funeral instructions. If you’ve made pre-arrangements with a funeral home include a copy of agreement, their contact information and whether you’ve prepaid

or not.

LEGAL DOCUMENTS • Will, trust and estate plan: Include the original copy of your will and other estate planning documents you’ve made. • Financial power of attorney: This document names someone you trust to handle money matters if you’re incapacitated. • Advance health care directives: This includes a living will and medical power of attorney, which spell out your wishes regarding your end-of-life medical treatment when you can no longer make decisions for yourself. FINANCIAL RECORDS • Financial accounts: Make a list of all your bank accounts, brokerage and mutual fund accounts, and any other financial assets you have. • Debts and liabilities: Make a list of any loans, leases or debts you have – mortgages owed, car loans, student loans, medical bills, credit card debts. Also, make a list of all credit and charge cards, including the card numbers and contact information. • Company benefits: List any retirement plans, pensions or health benefits from your current or former employer including the contact information of the benefits

administrator. • Insurance: List the insurance policies you have (life, long-term care, home, auto, Medicare, Medigap, prescription drug, etc.) including the policy numbers, agents, and phone numbers. • Property: List real estate, vehicles and other properties you own, rent or lease and include documents such as deeds, titles, and loan or lease agreements. • Taxes: Include the location of your tax records and your tax preparer’s contact information. Keep all your organized information and files together in one convenient location, ideally in a fireproof filing cabinet or safe in your home. Also be sure to review and update it every year, and don’t forget to tell your kids where they can find it.

If you need help, get a copy of “Get It Together: Organize Your Records So Your Family Won’t Have To” at for $17.50 for the downloadable versions, or $20 for a printed copy. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

Mac and Cheese with Pecan Breadcrumbs

How oatmeal does a body good Many adults are familiar with various remedies to mitigate symptoms and shorten the duration of the common cold. A bowl of chicken soup, a little extra sleep and tea with honey can help people feel better as they confront cold symptoms like runny nose and sore throat. Oatmeal is another popular cold remedy, but a piping hot bowl of ground oats can benefit the body even when it’s not battling a cold. Oatmeal and gut health Beta-glucan is a soluble fiber found in oatmeal that prevents constipation and promotes regular bowel movements. According to Amy Goodson, MS, RD, CSSD, LD, author of The Sports Nutrition Playbook,

beta-glucan fiber has been linked to healthy gut bacteria. Healthy gut bacteria can reduce the likelihood individuals will experience issues with digestion after eating and can lower the risk for inflammation and chronic disease. Oatmeal and cholesterol WebMD notes that the beta-glucan in oatmeal can help individuals lower their cholesterol. The soluble fiber in oatmeal reduces the absorption of cholesterol into the bloodstream, a property the Mayo Clinic reports can help individuals lower their levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), or “bad,” cholesterol. It’s worth nothing that many people add fiber-rich fruits and berries
