KOrean reuniOnS — A year ago, North Korea vowed nuclear attacks to retaliate for U.S.-South Korean war games. But the start today of this year's joint military drills comes as Pyongyang allows wrenching reunions of elderly Koreans separated since the Korean War. After a last-minute cancellation of reunions in September, Pyongyang allowed them to go forward this time after recent rare high-level talks with Seoul. The first reunions of North and South Koreans in more than three years have been held despite the refusal by the U.S. and South Korea to cancel what they call routine drills, but which Pyongyang says are preparations for an invasion.

Ukrainian lawmakers movedswiftly Sunday to assert control over the government, racing to restore calm after a week ofupheaval and bloodshed that ended in President Viktor Yanukovych's flight and ouster Saturday, and in suddenfears that the country might fall into civil war. On Sunday, aseries of bureaucratic events — a session of Parliament and thecontinued running of government institutions — seemed topull the country back from the brink. As Parliament acted, even Yanukovych's party denounced him for the deadly

crackdown on protesters. And the military vowed to support the newgovernment rather than rallying to the ousted president's side.

Jason Maniscalco. William Cheeks, 34, Christopher Ramirez, 33, and an unidentified 15-year-old on Friday allegedly entered an open garagein the Larkspur subdivision and stole items, including credit cards, from a vehicle inside, Maniscalco said. The suspects later allegedly used the credit cards to purchase Red Box movies at a 7-Eleven in Bend. Police were able to reference surveillance video to identify the three suspects. They were arrested on suspicion of two counts each of first-degree burglary, unlawful entry into a vehicle, fraudulent use of a credit card and third-degree theft and one count of identity theft.

During the investigation, police determined the suspects allegedly stole items from inside another open garage in the Larkspur neighborhood,Maniscalcosaid. "It is likely the suspects unlawfully entered other vehicles in the area of Brosterhous Road and American Lane on (Friday)," Maniscalco said.

The council is expected to consider an ordinance that would declare an emergency andallow theRedmond Airport the right to provide any and all aeronautical services associated with being a fixed-base operator. The ordinance stems from recent negotiations on new operating agreements with two tenants at the airport. According to the council meeting packet, the negotiations have been challenging, and the airport needs to be prepared to continue operating if those negotiations fall apart. The ordinance would alter city code to allow the airport the right to, for example, provide fueling services. WEDNESDAY

Deschutes County has one of the highest rates of nonmedical exemption from vaccinatIons for kindergarten students in the state. In 2013, the number of reported cases of pertussis, or whooping cough, jumped to seven in Deschutes County, up from three the year before.

"If there are enough people immunized against a disease, it helps protect people who can't

With Cruzoff the market, M's may look to Morales By Ryan Divish The Seattle Times

PEORIA, Ariz. — If the Seattle Mariners plan to supplement their lineup with

another competent major-league bat, the best and only option is at least someone they are familiar with.

On Saturday morning, one of the two remaining free-agent sluggers on the market — Nelson Cruz — agreed to terms with the Baltimore Orioles on

an $8 million, one-year contract with $750,000 reported in incentives.

With Cruz now unavailable, it leaves Kendrys Morales as the remaining slugger available. The Mariners are certainly familiar with Morales. The 30-year-old designated hitter was the team's best offensiveproduc-

er last season. Morales led the team in batting average (.277), hits (167), doubles (34), runs batted in (80), multihit games (46) and extra-base hits (37). He also played in a career-high 156 games, making 152 starts-


121 at DH and 31 at first base.


M ariners generalmanager Jack Zduriencik wasimpressed enough with the performance that he had discussions with Morales' agent, Scott Boras, about a


possible extension.

But as often is the case, Boras advised against any extension. The Mariners did hold out some hope

of bringing Morales back for the 2014 season by offering a qualifying offer of

Dale Earnhardt Jr. celebrates in Victory Lane after winning the Daytona 500 on Sunday night.

a one-year contract of $14.1 million. But

Boras and Morales declined the offer and opted for free agency in the hopes of signing a multiyear contract. And while Boras rarely fails when it comes to getting his clients top dollar, Morales appears to have made a mistake.

While theyhave remained quiet on any negotiations, the Mariners are unlikely to offermore than a three-year contract

forMorales.Cruz settling for a one-year "show me" contract in Baltimore doesn't help him. The Mariners had some interest in Cruz and were thought to be a likely landing spot. Seattle needed outfield help and a right-handed bat with some power. Cruz sort of offered both. But there

were more than a few reasons why Cruz

wasn't signed until now. And the Mariners weren't the only team to have them. Cruz's defensive deficiencies in the out-

field were an issue. Most scouts believe at his age and history of leg injuries that he's more ofaDH. Cruz alsogreatly benefited from playing half of his games in Texas, where every fly ball has a chance of being a home run. Cruz's career splits are striking.

edge of the issues, having played with Adrian Beltre the past few seasons. So does that mean signing Morales has become a priority? The Mariners have remained patient thus far, watching the possible price tag drop. Manager Lloyd McClendon said the team could go forward without adding another player. "We have options," he said. "We certainly have options. There is opportunity. We'll see how things play out." Of course, those options might not be as productive as Morales, something that Boras understands and will use in

Jeff Gordon and finally in a mad dash to hold off 2012 series champion Brad Keselowski.

TVviewers confuseddy 2013 replay JimmieJohnson's phone started blowing up Sundaywhile he was sitting in his motorhome — nowhere near Victory Lane. Johnson was hailed as theDaytona 500 champion all over the placeSunday after Fox Sports responded to a lengthy delay by showing a replay of last year's season opener, the one in which Johnson won his second 500. Fox ran an intermittent crawl across the bottom of the

screen saying the 2013 race wasbeing shown while Sunday's race wasbeing delayed becauseof rain. But thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, of people failed to get the message. Fox News, for one, erroneously reported on Johnson's victory. And several Foxaffiliates relayed the bad information. Plenty of fans on Twitter were confused throughout the replay, tweeting along as if the racewas live. Deadspin ran someof them under the headline, "Scores Of Idiots Don't Realize FoxIs Airing Last Year's Daytona 500." Piling onto the

strange story line, Fox's rain-delayed coverage wassponsored by the movie "Noah," which opens March 28 andstars Russell Crowe asthe title character who builds an arc to save creation from a massive flood. — The Associated Press

At the A CBL F a l l Ch a m pionships i n P hoenix, he was at th e helm i n today's deal in a B o ard-a-Match event, where overtricks were vital.

Rosenberg discarded the diamond and won the last two tricks with the K-9 of spades, making six. West might have found a trump lead.Then South would have had to guess well for 11 tricks.

HOW TO: Takeeverystep possible to ensureyour mortgageapplication is bothapprovedandmost affordable. Home ownership remains a d r eam for many people. But on t h e heels of the recession that began in l ate 2008, prospective home buyers are finding it far more difficult to secure a mortgage than it was in the years before the economy took a turn for the worse. Stricter guidelines now govern both borrowers and lenders alike, and the process can quickly frustrate prospective homeowners. But strict guidelines and more diligent lenders do not mean prospective borrowers will not be able to secure a loan to finance their home purchases. It just means those borrowers might want to take every step possible to ensure their loan applications are approved and their mortgages are affordable.



This includes assembling a team of trusted partners before the home buying process even begins, says Scott R. Halligan, CRB, GRI, managing principal broker with Coldwell Banker Morris Real Estate in Bend. "Our economy is improving, but with lower inventory, tighter credit standards a nd interest rates starting to c l imb, it becomes even morecriticalforprospective home buyers to meet early with their real estate professional and mortgage broker so that a game plan can be drafted prior to taking the field and starting the home buying process," Halligan said.



Renee Dornhecker, branchmanager and mortgage loan originator with Landmark Professional Mortgage Company, agrees. "It's a great idea to plan ahead when you are considering buying a home," she said. "Meeting with an experienced loan officer before you are ready to buy will help you make sure you have as many program and rate options available to you when the time comes."

Address credit concerns before beginning the process. Poor credit is a prospective borrower's worst enemy, and it's an i n stant and glaring red flag to lenders. And thanks to inaccuracies on their credit reports, some people may have poor credit and not even know it. Before they even begin the process of applying for a home loan, would-be applicants should go over their credit reports with a fine tooth comb, ensuring there are no p o tentially harmful inaccuracies that may affect the ability to secure an affordable mo r t gage. Inaccuracies or poor credit h isto r i es c an bring d o w n i ndi v i d u a l s ' credit s c ores,



which lenders use to determine home loan interest rates. So prospective applicants should have any errors to t heir credit reports corrected and/or work to improve their credit scores before applying for loans.

Pay down debt. Even if a n a p p licant's credit score is solid, lenders may scoff at applicants with substantial amounts of debt. Credit card debt should be paid down before beginning the process, and it also may benefit applicants to pay off any additional loans, such as car notes or student loans, before applying for a home loan. The less debt an applicant has, the more attractive that applicant becomes.

Avoid overusing credit cards. Using credit too frequently also can make it m ore d i fficult for p r ospective home buyers to secure a home loan. Credit card holders each have a maximum limit on their credit cards, and financial experts recommend using less than 20 percent of available credit to maintain a strong credit rating.

Don't bluff on loan applications. Some borrowers might be tempted to

down payments, feeling that such borrowers are less likely to default on their loans. In addition, the larger the down payment, the l ess t h e m o n thly mortgage payment will be, saving borrowers a significant amount of interestfees over the course of the loan. According to Dor n h e cker, programs exist that make it simpler to save for a down payment. "There are savings programs available to help you save for your d own payment, and s om e w i l l match your contributions three to one," she said. The ultimate goal throughout the process, Dornhecker added, is to be prepared every step of the way. Set the tone at the beginning of the process. "The more you know ahead of time about the process, the more prepared and smooth your home buying experience will b e," she said.

Paying off a mortgage early may seem like a monumental task, but it can be accomplished in a variety of ways.

Though th e a p p rehension over mortgage payments may wear off once homeowners get settled, that doesn't mean homeowners don't wish they could pay of f t h ei r h o mes b e fore those mortgages reach maturity. Though it might seem impossible in those first few months after buying a home, paying a mortgage off earlycan be accomplished in a variety of ways. Increase what you pay each month. Any type of loan, be it a traditional credit card or a mortgage, will disappear faster when borrowers pay more than the bare minimum. By paying just a little more each month, more of your money is going to the principal on the loan, lowering the amount of interest you will pay over the life of the loan at the same time. For example, a $200,000 30-year mortgage loan at 7 percent interest will cost borrowers $1,330.60 per month (costs may vary depending on taxes), and that loan will be paid off in 30 years. But borrowers who increase their payments by just $50 per month can pay off the loan in 26 years and nine months. What's more, borrowers who only make the minimum payment each month will have paid $279,017.80 in interest charges over the life of the loan, while those who increase each month's payment by just $50 will have paid just $242,588.80 in interest over the life of the loan. That means that extra $50 per month saves borrowers $36,249 in interest charges. One thing borrowers must be certain of is that any extra money they send in each month is applied to the loan's principal, and not just set aside for the next month's payment. Talk to your lender to verify this, and when doing so, make sure you don't have to pay any prepayment penalties if you do, in fact, pay the mortgage off before it reaches full maturity. Such penalties can be significant, but they might be worth paying for the peace of mind of knowing you will be paying your mortgage off several years early. C onsider b i - weekly p a y -

ments. Bi-weekly payments, in which b orrowers make h a l fpayments every two weeks instead of one full payment once per month, are another way to pay your mortgage off early. A typical mortgage agreement has borrowers m a king p a y ments once per month, meaning they are making 12 annual payments. But a bi-weekly payment system takes advantage of the fact that there are 52 weeks in a year. So by the end of one calender year, you will have made 26 half-payments, or 13 full payments. Such a payment system enables some borrowers to pay off their 30year mortgages in as little as 24 years. When looking into bi-weekly payments, consult your lender to determine if there are any penalties to such a system. Some lending institutions charge customers who change their payment structure. In addition, confirm with your lender that each extra payment is going toward the principal and not toward your first payment next year. Refinance your loan. Refinancing to a shorter-term loan often earns borrowers a smaller interest rate, which can offset the higher monthly payments that accompany shorter-term loans. A shorter-term loan means you won't have mortgage payments hanging over your head for as long as you would on a 30-year mortgage, and it also means you won't pay nearly as much in interest over the life of the loan. M any homeowners find a 1 5 year mortgage forces them to be more disciplined. Homeowners who find their 30-year monthly mortgage payment is well below their means should consider a shorter-term loan, especially if their 30-year mortgage would penalize them for p aying the loan off before it reaches full maturity. Mortgage payments have a way of dominating homeowners' thoughts. But those homeowners who want to get out from under their mortgage payments without selling their homes have a handful of options at their disposal. MONEY MATTERS2014 I 7

HOW TO Interest rates are not the only factor homeowners must consider when deciding whether or not to refinance their mortgages. Refinancing a mortgage i s advantageous to homeowners for a v ariety of reasons. The primary reasons people refinance their mortgages are to reduce their monthly payments or free up equity to use toward home improvements or other necessities. Lenders will frequently advertise that "now" is the time to refinance, but people may want to get all of the facts before making their decisions. A low interest rate is not reason alone to refinance. Conventional wisdom has long suggested that borrowers wait to refinance until interest rates drop 2 percent below their current rate. While a low interest rate is important, there are several other factors to consider.

Closing Costs Refinancing a home is an expensive undertaking. While it can effectively shave II100 or more off your monthly payments, there is a financial outlay during the process, which includes dosing costs. A person can expect to pay anywhere from 2 to 5 percent of the loan's value in closing costs when refinancing. Lenders used to enable some to roll the cost of the dosing into the mortgage, but stringent rules have changed the way many banks now do business. If the finances are simply not there to cover the closing costs, refinancing may not be an option.

Credit rating If your credit rating is better now than it was when you i n itially earned your

home loan, then this might be a good time to refinance. Not only will a person benefit from a low market rate, the interest rate may be even lower because lenders look more fondly on you now than they did years ago. Lenders often base their assessments of borrower reliability and stability on those potential borrowers' credit scores, so a strong credit score makes you look better in the eyes of lenders. Borrowers with poor credit ratings may not benefit from refinancing.

Determining the best time t o r e f inance your home mortgage takes effort on the part of the borrower and information about market trends. By doing one's homework and being aware of certain factors, a person can save money by refinancing a home loan.

Reverse mortgages enableseniors to retire comfortably in their own homes, but it has somedrawbacks. Chances are you have come across an advertisement for a reverse mortgage and have probably wondered what this type of mortgage is all about. Geared toward seniors,reverse mortgages are growing in popularity and inspiring the curiosity of older homeowners. A reverse mortgage isa loan offered to people over the age of 62 that enables borrowers to convert part of the equity in their homes into cash or create a rainy day fund. "Increasingly, senior homeowners are discovering that the reverse mortgage can be an affordable tool for planning purposes," said Jerry Gilmour, senior reverse mortgage loan officer with Willamette Valley Bank. "Although there are no restrictions on how the money is used, few seniors are borrowing money just to spend it. Most either pay off an old mortgage they can no longer afford or they set aside funds for a specific future need." The loan is dubbed "reverse mortgage" becauseinstead of the homeowner paying money to a lender as is customary with a traditional mortgage, repayment is deferred until the borrower(s) no longer occupy the home. In some cases, Gilmour said, the lender may even make payments to the homeowner. To keep the loan in good standing, the homeowner must occupy the home as a principal residence,keep the taxes paid, and keep the house insured and maintained, however a house payment is optional. When a person takes out a reverse mortgage, he or she may borrow a portion of the market value on the home. The percentage of the home value that can be borrowed depends on the age of the youngest borrower and applies to homes valued at $625,500 or less. The reverse mortgage must pay off any outstanding home loan and the balance of the funds the homeowner is eligible for can be taken in cash (subject

to certain limitations) or allocated to a monthly income, a line of credit for future use or any combination the homeowner chooses.

pRos A reversemortgage enables seniors to live in their homes for the rest of their lives without fear of mortgage payments. "Even though there are no monthly payments required, the lender will base the loan approval on the homeowner's ability to pay taxes, insurance, maintenance and utilities," Gilmour said. "The standards for qualification are much less strict than for a standard mortgage, however credit and income are considered for he safety of the bank as well as the homeowner." In addition, the homeowner may opt to make apayment, in any amount and at any time, to preserve the home's equity. "If the homeowner elects to allocate the loan proceeds to a line of credit, the amount of available credit will increase over time and interest does not begin to accrue on that portion of the loan until the money is actually used," Gilmour said. "If a monthly income is desired, that income will continue for as long as the homeowner lives in the home and keeps the loan in good standing." As long as the borrower continues to maintain residence in the home, the loan is in good standing and the homeowner will continue to benefit. This money can be used for any purpose and is tax-free. Borrowers can opt to modernize their homes or make safety improvements. The funds can also be put toward medical expenses or travel or to help family with their own financial needs. Because the government insures the reverse mortgage program, borrowers need not worry about receiving their payments. Should a lender fail to make a payment, the borrower is eligible for that

money and a late fee as well. Another benefit of reverse mortgages is they protect homeowners against falling home prices. If the value of the home drops after the loan is negotiated, it will not affect the benefits of the loan as long as the loan remains in good standing.

coNs One down side to reverse mortgages is that the loans have higher up-front fees than other types of financing. "Recent changes to the reverse mortgage program offer a substantial reduction of the mortgage insurance fees, provided the homeowner is able to limit the upfront cash advance to 60 percent of the eligible loan amount taken within the first year," Gilmour said. Unlike a traditional mortgage, where the balance gets lower and lower over time, with a reverse mortgage, no payments are being made on the loan. This means the loan balance simply gets larger over timedepending on how much money is drawn from the home's equity. At the end of the loan, when the homeowner moves from the property or the premises is vacated upon the borrower's death, the value of the estate decreases based on the pay-off value of the reverse m ortgage loan. Heirs will pay off t h e

mortgage by selling the home and will only inherit the remaining money after the reverse mortgage lender has the loan satisfied. This means men and women will be leaving less money for their heirs, but those heirs will not be personally liable if the home sells for less than the value of the mortgage. The mortgage lender has to claim a loss and request reimbursement from the Federal Housing Administration. Something many seniors may not be aware ofwith regard to reverse mortgages is that these loans can affect eligibility for some need-based programs. Although Social Security and Medicare are not affected, Medicaid and other government assistance programs can be affected if a senior has a surplus of funds from a reverse mortgage that are not spent during the month. A reverse mortgage is a l ong-term solution. People who are looking for a short-term fix will find that this type of loan probably doesn't meet their needs. Many seniors often find reverse mortgages confusing. Seniors may unwittingly agree to a loan without fully understanding the scope of the reverse mortgage. It is advisable to seek counseling on reverse mortgages before applying for one.

Before trying your hand in realestate investment, it's important to first consider all the costs associated with both the homeandyour investment complete team.

ea s ae On the heels of a recession that saw home values drop, many would-be investors have shied away from buying investment properties. But real estate has historically remained a sound investment, boasting a long-term appreciation rate that makes it a worthwhile investment for those who can withstand temporary setbacks in housing prices and hold on to their properties over the long haul. But investors are often nervous as they look fo r t h ei r f i r s t p r o perties. Uncertainty about housing prices aside, investing in real estate also is r i sky, and f i rst-time investors need to be comfortable with such risk in order to make the most of their investments. The following are a few things potential real estate investors should consider as they decide if investing in real estate is right for them.

The Team According t o L y n n e C o nnelley, Br oker, CRS, with Coldwell Banker Morris Real Estate in Bend, it's important you have a solid team in place prior to investing. The team should include a knowledgeable broker who understands capitalization rates, property values, when interest rates are best served by buying vacation home versus a long-term rental, and how to determine if h i r ing a property manager would be in your best interests. "Your broker can r e commend an e x p erienced property manager who w i l l p r o tect your investment and account for all moneys," Connelley said. "Your team includes an experienced mortgage broker who will find for you the loan best suited to your situation. Will you do repairs yourself or hire a contractor? Your broker can recommend excellent trades persons for repairs." 10 I MONEY MATTERS 2014

ves Investing in a g oo d t eam w il l n o d o u bt cut into potential profits down the road, but a trusted team can also work together to ensure your investment is solid in a long-term sense.

Time Real estate is often a time-consuming investment. Tenants pay good money to live in attractive rental properties, and those tenants will have a host of needs that must be met. Investors must be sure they have the time to address their tenants' concerns, especially investors with no plans to hire property management firms. Potential investors who already have full plates at work and at home may not be able to devote the time necessary to make the most of their real estate investments, and therefore might be better off finding another way to invest their money. Time also must be considered when considering profits. Real estate is not the type of investment that turns a profit overnight. Even investors who are looking to invest in an upand-coming neighborhood must be prepared to hold onto their properties for at least a few years, if not much longer, to maximize their investments. Though real estate is a sound inv estment, it i s not a get r ich q uick t ype of investment, so investors looking to m ake a quick buck should consider alternatives before buying investment properties. "I am not a believer in ' f l ipping' property, which is buying it, fixing it and reselling it," Connelley said. "I believe in buying right and holding that property long term. You do not make money when you sell a p r operty; you make money when you buy it.So buy it right."

First-time real estate investors might be wise to choose a smaller property for their initial investment. Larger properties can be overwhelming to m a nage, and investors often rely on property management firms to tend to these properties. Such firms charge more to manage bigger properties, which can eat into investors' finances. Veteran investors can handle such overhead costs, but first-timers might find themselves caught off g u ard u pon r e alizing th e gravity of their financial commitment. A good rule of thumb for first-time investors is to stick to smaller properties, only moving on to larger buildings once they are fully comfortable with all that comes with investing in real estate.

The cost of a real estate investment goes beyond the purchase price of the home. In addition to the mortgage on the property, investors must pay the taxes and insurance on the property, as well as any costs associated with maintaining and managing the property. Certain tax breaks are available to real estate investors depending on where they live. For example, in the United States, taxes on the profits when a property is sold may be deferred if those profits are immediately rolled into another p roperty (such a d e f erment i s o n l y a vailable to t h ose investors who a r range this exchange prior to selling the initial property).

P otential i nvestors need t o c o n s ider all o f t h e se costs, and m i g ht want to h ir e a r eal estate lawyer to help them make the most of their investments and any profits they yield.

But even hiring an attorney is an additional cost investors must consider before investing.

about Here are some things even consumers with strong credit may not know about this three-digit score. Many consumers are aware of the importance of having a good credit history. A strong credit history means consumers have a high credit score, which can help them secure home and auto loans with reasonable interest rates. But while consumers may know the significance of a good credit score, they might not know about the credit score itself. The following are a few things even consumers with strong credit histories may not know about that three-digit figure that can have such a substantial impact on their lives.

few points of one another, that's not always the case. Adults planning to apply for loans should find out all three of their scores before beginning the loan application process. If one score is considerably lower than the other two, examine each of the three reports thoroughly to determine if there are any discrepancies. Even credit reporting agencies make errors, but those mistakes can prove quite costly to less careful consumers.

You have multiple credit scores.

Just because you have a great credit score today does not mean that score will be just as stellar tomorrow. That's because credit scores are constantly in flux. When determining your credit score, credit bureaus consider a host of factors, including what's known as a credit-utilization ratio. This compares the amount of debt an individual is carrying to his or her total available credit. If your credit score last month was excellent but you have spent much of the past month piling up charges, then that score has probably lowered, even if

The success of Web sitesoffering free credit scores, and those sites' p opular t elevision ad c a mpaigns, opened many consumers' eyes to the reality that they have multiple credit scores. That's because each of the three credit bureaus has its own way o f d etermining an individual's credit score. Experian, Equifax and TransUnion each has their own proprietary scoring model. As a result, consumers typically have three credit scores. Though these scores are often within a

you haven't missed a payment. A low credit-utilization ratio is ideal, so piling up charges will hurt your score unless you are immediately paying those charges off. Carrying balances and/or missing payments can quickly turn a great score into one that raises a red flag with prospective lenders.

Credit scores sometimes benefit from debt. Many consumers are aware there's such a thing as good debt and bad debt. Credit card debt is typically considered bad debt, as credit cards often charge much higher interest rates than lending institutions that give consumers chances to build g ood debt. Installment loans, which include mortgages and auto loans, give consumers the opportunity to demonstrate they can make steady payments over a prolonged period of time, and each timely payment can boost a consumer's credit score. However, men and women should be aware that missing installment loan payments can have a very detrimental impact on their credit scores.

Your score is constantly changing.

The Benefits of Having a personal financial plan is paramount if your goal is to move toward a secure andconfident future. Financial planning is often mistakenly assumed to be a concern for the wealthy. That assumption essentially promotes the idea that people without much money need not worry about what to do with their finances. H owever, financial planning can benefit people at all income levels, even helping those at lower income levels move into higher brackets if they plan successfully. Though having anidea of how to spend and grow your money is an idea many people would likely embrace, a significantly large number of people do not have a financial plan. In its 2012 Household Financial Planning Survey t the Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards found that just 31 percent of financial decision makers in families had created a financial plan. Some survey respondents did so on their own, while others

used the services of a financial planner. Though some might be intimidated or even scared to institute their own financial plans, it can be done. And it should be done, said Linda Zivney, registered principal with Zivney Financial Group. ""Financial Planning is the key to financial success. In li fe, we pass through several phases, each with different financial requirements," she said. "For example, the f i nancial needs of a y o ung m arried couple are not the same as those of a retired couple. Th at is why continuous, long-term planning is essential." For those who are especially hesitant to develop their own financial plans, financial planners can help you define your goals and make those goals a reality. The benefits of financial planning are numerous, hel ping ' men and women build better financial futures.

A financial plan forces you to define your goals. One of the biggest advantages to financial planning is it forces men and women to define their financial goals. An effective financial plan should consider both short- and long-term goals. If you hope to one day own a home, a financial plan can help you figure out how quickly you will own that home. According to Stephanie Gross, branch manager with Springleaf Financial Services, one of your first goals should be to pay off debt. "Start by paying off high interest revolving debt and move onto the balances with lower rates," she said. "As you pay the debt off that is more money to use to accomplish you monetary goals for the future and increase your monthly disposable income."


A good financial plan also can help you map out a course for retirement. Ambiguity with respect to your finances is potentially dangerous. "The secret to financial freedom in retirement is to create an income for life," said Cathy Mendell, president of Elevation Capital Strategies in Bend. "Without income, there is n o r e tirement." Saying you want to retire at 60 and developing a plan to make that happen are two very different things, but the latter can make it happen while the former won't get you anywhere unless you take action. Be as specific as possible when defining your goals, and r ecognize that, depending on w h e n you are making your f i nancial plan, you might need to reassess those goals if they are not realistic. "The primary goal of a retirement nest egg i s i n c ome," Mendell said. " This income i s w h a t yo u n eed t o spend each year to have the life that you want."

A financial plan can help you curtail your spending.

With a f i n a ncial p la n i n p l a c e, you're less likely to waste your money on frivolous things. Without a p l an, you're more likely to treat money as disposable, putting your financial future in jeopardy as a result. A careful examination of y ou r f i n ancial situation can shed light o n a r eas where your spending is excessive. A negative cash flow, which occurs when there is more money going out t han coming in, has never been a part of a successful financial plan. Correcting such a situation, which is often accomplished when people establish a financial plan that trims excessive spending, can go a long way toward securing your financial future.

A financial plan can be motivational. Another significant and often overlooked benefit to financial planning is how such planning can act as a motivator. Tom Meagher, branch manager and senior vice president-financial advisor with Menefee Meagher Wealth Management Group, RBC Wealth Management, says he regularly witnesses people motivated to take control of their personal finances. "We are seeing a much greater in-

terest in planning from our clients than ever before, and the level of sophistication of our plans has increased as clients needs have changed," he said. A good financial plan will include certain measuring sticks, such as having debt paid off by a particular date or a certain day by w hich you hope to deposit a certain amount of money into your savings. These measuring sticks often motivate men and women to be more responsible with their money, and many people find living up to short-term financial goals to be very rewarding.

A financial plan makes betler use of your money. Even if you don't have any negative spending habits, a financial plan can help you make better use of the money you do have.A closer examination of your finances can often yield a host of ways to grow your money or save it. For example, you might have multiple insurance policies, some of which offer duplicate coverage. Examining each policy and removing duplicate coverage can save you money and help you spend that money in better ways. You wouldn't pay for the same slice of pizza twice, so why pay for the same coverage twice? But unless you make a financial plan, you are unlikely to find those areas where you're wasting money or discover the numerous ways in which your money can be better spent.

A financial plan helps you grow your money. Even if you are worried about investing or especially skittish when it c omes to risk, you will n eed to f i nd ways to grow your money, and a fi nancial plan can help you do just that. The concept of inflation dictates that t he dollar you have today won't b e worth as much next year, meaning you will need to take steps to grow your money ifyou hope to have enough to get by in retirement. A financial plan can help everyone, whether they're risk-averse or not, grow their money. Something as simple as opening an interest-bearing account will grow your money more than if you were to put that money under the mattress. Without a financial plan that includes ways to grow your money, the money you have will only lessen in value as time goes on.

Financial Considerations for those nearing As retirement draws closer, menandwomen must start making important financial decisions to ensure their nest eggs can support the lifestyles they want to live throughout their golden years. Retirement ca n s i m u ltaneously excite and distress men and women as they approach the day when they end their careers. Anticipating the freedom can be exciting, while concerns about maintaining financial independence can be stressful. Though there are no guarantees that men and women who prioritize retirement planning will not outlive their finances, those who do arrange their priorities in such a manner are far more likely to enjoy a comfortable retirement w i t hout w o r r y ing about their f i nances. As men a n d women approach retirement age, certain steps with regard to preparing for retirement can put them in position to enjoy their golden years to the fullest.


Assess your resources. An honest assessment of your assets will help you determine a retirement lifestyle you can afford. Assets can include any property you own, investments, savings, and retirement accounts. Your property may be your biggest financial asset, but u n less you plan to sell that property or take out a r everse mortgage, then you won't be able to rely on that property to fund your lifestyle. When assessing resources, keep in mind that you might have to pay potentially steep taxes when attempting to access any retirement accounts, such as a 401(k). Factor in any such taxes when assessing your retirement resources.

Make a list of your monthly expenses. Once you have assessed your resources, make a list of your monthly bills. Mortgage payments, health care costs, taxes, and food are among the

years before you retireaffords you the opportunity to make changes if you determine the r etirement you can afford does not exactly match up with the retirement you want to live. After you have figured out what you can afford, compare that lifestyle to the one you hope to live. If they are one and the same, then you did a great job planning for retirement. If they are slightly or significantly different, then look for ways to close that gap. If necessary, consult with a financial planner, who might b e able to help turn your dream retirement into a reality. Closing the gap between your dream retirement and the one you can afford to live may require you to work an extra year or two, so be prepared to make that decision if need be.

Plan on continuing to grow your money.

essentials, while additional expenses l ike travel and e ntertainment w i l l need to be factored in as well. When considering monthly expenses, keep in mind that some of those expenses, including mortgage payments and commuting costs, will l i kely disappear, while others, including healthcare costs, are likely to increase significantly. Once you have assessed

your resources and expenses, you can then begin to paint a picture of the retirement lifestyle you can afford to live.

Compare the lifestyle you want to live versus the one you can afford to live.

Just because you're retiring does not mean your money has to stop working as well. You will still need to combat inflation during your golden years, so plan on continuing to grow your money even after you r etire. Though it's best t o r e duce investment risks as you age, many retirees still need to keep a toe in the investment waters. Find a balance you're comfortable with so your money continues to grow, but be conservative at the same time. As you grow older, continue to reduce your risk. While conventional wisdom long suggested retirees should completely eliminate risk from t h ei r p o r tfolios, today's retirees are living longer than ever before, so you likely can't afford to follow the advice of yesteryear.

How does joining a credit union differ from working with a bank? W hile banks have long been t h e place people go t o s e curely deposit t heir money, a g r o w in g n u m ber o f people are exploring the benefits of credit unions. L aws r e quir e c r e di t u n i o n s t o have a defined field of m embership. Although credit u n ions have certain requirements for m e mbership, some consumers are finding it's easier than ever to join a credit union. Many people gain access to a credit union through their employers, who may have a previously established relationship with th e credit union. But there are other ways to join a c redit union. Memberships at churches, fraternal organizations, specific communities, schools, and various other organizations may make certain people eligible to open an account at a credit union.

"People are discovering the great value of c r e dit u n i o ns, accelerating our growth to nearly 23,000 members in Central Oregon over the past few years," said Kyle Frick, vice president of marketing and community relations w ith Mi d O r egon Credit Union. Mi d Oregon Credit Union formed in Prineville in 1957. Credit unions are similar to banks, but unlike b anks, credit u n i ons are not-for-profit entities. This means that any profits earned by a credit union will not be given to shareholders. Instead, credit u n ions pass on p r o f its to members in the form of lower fees and better service. In some instances, credit unions may offer dividends to members. "I think that there's stability within credit unions," said Mike Stanley, Central Oregon area manager of SELCO

C ommunity C r edit U n io n i n B e n d . "Because a credit union is a memberowned, not-for-profit cooperative, our services tend t o b e m o r e m e m berdriven. ... This means that every one o f our m embers has a share i n t h e credit union, giving them a voice and a chance to vote for our board, etc. Everything is focused on our members and the services we offer to them, not h ow much money w e ca n m ake f o r stockholders." It is very likely a person can make more interest at a credit union on certain services than they might at a bank. In addition, credit union account holders often pay lower fees on those accounts than they would if their money was in a bank. Credit unions ar e o f ten c o mmun ity-based. Large b a nk s m a y h a v e branches around the globe, but many credit unions have just one or two locations. This can be advantageous to those looking to do business directly with members of their community. However, it also makes it h a rder to access your money without paying certain fees, such as those you might p ay when w i t h drawing money f r om an ATM not affiliated with your credit union. Many credit union account holders cite better customer service as another advantage credit unions have over banks. Because credit unions are cornerstones of some communities, their employees may have more personalized interaction with members and be willing to g o a b ove and beyond for those members and their community. Credit unions may have more lenient overdraft charges or be able to work w i t h c u s tomers m or e r e adily than some banks. A credit union customer may have an easier time securing a loan if they are already a member. Credit unions also are known for lower interest rates than banks, particularly on auto loans. "OnPoint is locally owned, by our members, and w e m a k e l o cal d e cisions," said Stephen Wymer, Central

Oregon area manager wit h O n Point Community Credit Union. "We don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. We're large enough to have the banking resources our members need, but we're small enough to know our community and our members." Credit unions are just as safe as banks. A person's money is insured by the National Credit Union Administration up t o a p r e determined amount. Some credit unions use private insurance but are insured nonetheless. Those interested in joining a credit union can visit the Credit Union Nat ional Association Web site at w w w . to find a credit union nearby. Individuals also can talk to their employers and any other groups to which they belong to find a credit union that fits their membership criteria. As with a bank, a person will need forms of identification and a c ertain sum of money to deposit to secure a credit union account.



As retirement draws closer, menandwomen must start making important financial decisions to ensure their nest eggs can support the lifestyles they want to live throughout their golden years. Millions o f N o r t h A m e ricans are struggling to make ends meet, and data suggests many adults are living paycheck to paycheck. A study released in 2012 by the Consumer Federation of America and Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards revealed roughly 38 percent of Americans stay afloat by living paycheck to paycheck. In 2010, a national survey showed that around 60 percent of Canadians would be in financial peril if their paychecks were delayed even one week. Household l i a b i l ities, i n c l u ding mortgages and rents, as well as other established debt makes it i m p ossible for some people to remain financially sound without a steady income. Should a circumstance like a medical illness, loss of job or furlough in pay delay a salary, many people would quickly find themselves in financial hot water. Despite conventional wisdom that suggests people should have enough money set aside to cover at least six months' of expenses, many people donot even come close to this amount. So what to do if your are faced with a temporary loss of pay? Everyone's situation is unique, but the following tips can help men and women weather the storm of financial uncertainty.

Remain calm When money suddenly stops coming in, r emain calm an d a ssess the situation. Now is the time to take out financial worksheets and bank statements. Add up the amount of money you have in the bank and any assets that can be liquidated without penalty. Compare this to the money that is spent each month. Once you have an accurate picture of your finances, you can establish a plan.

Explore assistance programs

restored when a steady income is once again coming in.

Laid off w o rkers may b e e l igible for unemployment benefits. Be sure to file for unemployment as soon as possible. Whil e u n employment b enefits won't equal your previous earnings, the money can help pay bills until you are able to get back on track. Individuals sidelined from work by an injury may be eligible for compensation through worker's programs or any personal insurance plans.

Talk to family members

Talk to your creditors

Many credit cards come with steep interest rates, so using credit cards to secure cash advances or make purchases is a risky proposition. Explore other options before resorting to credit cards to bail you out.

It is best to be open and honest with c reditors so that this blip on your f i nancial history doesn't end up causing any long-term damage to your credit. Many creditors have contingency plans i n place and will b e w i l l ing to w o rk with individuals who anticipate trouble paying their bills. You may be able to temporarily freeze accounts or w aive payments for a certain period of time without penalty. If yo u h ave a store credit card, you may be able to negotiate a cash settlement to wipe out the debt. Some creditors will take as little as a few dollars a month as good-faith payments. Just don't wait until it's too late to negotiate with creditors.

D o not h i d e t h e s i t uation f r o m friends and family members. Be honest with family members about the situation, and they may offer advice or some financial help. Although loans between family and friends can be tricky, they may be your best option to stay afloat financially during a rough patch.

Make plans for the future Realize this type o f s i tuation can happen again, and commit to making future plans for emergency savings and other coping strategies. Find ways to achieve a relatively stable nest egg so that you can weather any future financial storms.

Steer clear of credit cards

Be open to new employment K eep an open m ind w h en searching for a n e w j o b . Y ou may need to settle for something part-time until a full-time opportunity comes along. Think about looking outside of your normal line of work and i nto i n dustries that are thriving even in tough financial times.

Find ways to cut back

Stick together

Lack of work may have already cut out some of your daily expenses, such as commuting costs. However, now is also the time to assess if any luxuries can be dispensed of to save money. Think about cancelling expensive mobile phone plans or cable service. Cease having dinners out on the town or ordering take-out. Kids may need to make concessions on extracurricular activities that cost money. These luxuries can be

Financial uncertainty can take its toll on a family. Naturally, losing a job or having a temporary loss of pay can take its toll on morale and put added stress on r elationships. Bu t f a m i lies who w ork t ogether can ride out the situation successfully.

Prescription drug costs can add up. But there are a number of strategies consumers can employ to reduce the out-of-pocket expenditures on medications.

How to Save on P rescription d r ugs c a n b e q u i t e expensive, and even those who have health insurance often pay more than they need to. According to a 2012 Cons umer Reports "Best Drugs" poll o n prescription drugs, Americans routinely take an average of four medications per day, spending nearly II800 on drug costs each year. Those who do not have health insurance may have to pay much more out of pocket. As expensive as prescription medications can be, there are still ways to save money on prescription drug costs.

Comparison shop Believe it or not, drug prices vary depending on the time of the year and even the pharmacy. A person can shop around for the most affordable medication just like they would when buying another product. Prescription drug apps enable you to search for discounts in your neighborhood.


Read your bill M edical coding and bi lling i s n o t always accurate. Employees entering codes may put in the wrong information, inadvertently charging a person for the wrong medication. Treat your medical bills as you would any other bill and verify that the charges are correct.If you have any doubts, check the drug name with your doctor and then consult with the pharmacy to see if an error was made.

Opt for generic medications G eneric versions of h u n dreds of b rand name p r escription d r ug s a r e available and typically cost a lot l ess money. With a generic medicine you are not paying for marketing and advertising costs. These drugs are routinely tested for efficacy and safety. There is really no reason to select a name-brand medicine over the generic alternative, even when it comes to over-the-counter

drugs. Ask your doctor on your script to check the box for the generic option.

Skip the insurance sometimes

Use a preferred pharmacy mail-order service

Consumer Reports says hundreds of commonly used generic medications can be purchased for around $10 for a threemonth supply at various major chains. Program details vary, but c onsumers might be able to save a lot of money by using these programs and leaving their insurance cards in their wallets.

Certain insurance companies have negotiated discounts with m a i l-order pharmacies and pass on the savings to their members. Medicare and other government-sponsored plans may offer the same type of deal, and consumers can save a substantial amount of money by opting for mail-order service.

Consider big wholesalers for prescriptions You may think of Costco or Sam's Club as your go-to place to buy 30-packs of toilet tissue, but these retailers also offer discounts on prescription drugs. Even nonmembers are allowed to use these warehouses for their prescription drug needs. Big wholesalers could give you the best deal on your pills.

Opt for OTC In many cases, an over-the-counter medication may be just as effective as a prescription drug. Talk to your doctor about trying an OTC remedy before a prescription is written. Ibuprofen may relieve arthritis pain, and diphenhydramine could alleviate insomnia, all at a much lower cost than prescription drugs. Prescription drug costs can add up. But there are a number of strategies consumers can employ to reduce the out-ofpocket expenditures on medications.

How to Properly Store Certain personal and financial documents need to be kept for security and other purposes, while some documents can be discarded immediately. Documents that must be kept often include sensitive information, which means they shouldn't be stored haphazardly. Options for maintaining important records continue to evolve, but caution still must reign supreme when storing potentially sensitive documents.

rable,fireproof safe. If you prefer to keep these items off-premises, keep them under lock and key in a bank safety deposit box.

The Federal Trade Commission estimates that nearly 10 million people have their identities stolen each year. Identity theft occurs when criminals use another person's personal information, such as his or her name, credit card numbers or social security number, without permission. Sensitive information can be lifted from personal effects stored in a person's home or from items delivered to a m a i lbox. Here are some ways to keep information private and out of the hands of potential thieves.

Consider digital storage.

Sort your documents. When sorting documents, which should be done regularly, determine which include sensitive information and move them aside. Bills and other papers that do not reveal much may be stored in a regular filing system, but documents that contain sensitive information should be kept in more secure locations.

Invest in a durable, fireproof safe. Store sensitive documents, including social security cards, marriage certificates, birth c ertificates, travel documents, lif e i n surance policies, a nd mortgage paperwork, i n a d u -

Organize your documents and maintain that organization. Be sure to carefully label all boxes or cabinets in which important documents are stored. Create a filing system that works for your needs. You may want to organize the papers by date, type of document or your own coding method. Think about crossreferencing your tangible files with a master list so you'll know the exact location of certain documents when you need them.

Various programs that work with a scanner or camera can now capture images of important paperwork and then convert these images into digital files that can be tagged and categorized. The information is then stored digitally on a computer and can be r etrieved with a f e w c l i cks o f t h e mouse. Computers that are used to store personal information should be password-protected. Never share potentially sensitive documents via email or through nonencrypted communication methods. Otherwise you risk information being stolen by hackers. When documents are stored digitally, make sure you keep backup versions. These can be kept on external hard drives or uploaded to secure servers. Should anything happen to your computer, you will have the backup version of your important files.

How Long to Store Certain Documents: • Bank statements — One year, unless neededto support tax filings • Birth certificates — Forever

• Contracts — Until updated • Credit card records — Until paid, unless needed to support tax filings • Education documents — Forever • Home records — Aslong asyou own the property • Investment certificates — Until sold or cashed in • Life insurance records — Forever • Military service records — Forever • Tax records — Seven years from filing date • Vehicle titles — Until the vehicle is sold • Will — Until the will is updated
