November 8, 2018 Caloosa Belle 3 Weve still got a couple of months left in 2018, but its not too soon to start thinking about some year-end investment moves that might benet you. Here are a few possibilities (although not all will apply to your situation): Add to your IRA. For the 2018 tax year, you can put up to $5,500 into your traditional or Roth IRA (assuming you are eligible), or $6,500 if youre 50 or older. If you havent reached this limit, consider adding some money. You have until April 15, 2019, to contribute to your IRA for 2018, but why wait until the last minute? Increase your 401(k) contributions. You already may be investing in your 401(k) or similar employer-sponsored retirement plan, but you might be able to bump up your contributions for the rest of the year, if its allowed. Of course, you should always put in enough to earn your employers matching contribution, if one is offered. Take your RMDs. If you are 70 or older, you must start taking withdrawals called required minimum distributions, or RMDs from your traditional IRA and your 401(k) or similar retirement plan. Generally, you must take these RMDs by December 31 every year. But if you turned 70 in 2018, you can wait until April 1, 2019, until you take your rst RMD. However, you will then have to take a second RMD (the one for age 71) by December 31, 2019. Taking two RMDs in one year could give you an unexpectedly large taxable income for the year, possibly bumping you into a higher tax bracket and affecting the amount of your Social Security benets subject to taxes. So, if you are considering delaying your rst RMD, consult with your tax advisor. Make changes in response to life events. In 2018, did you experience a major life event, such as a marriage, divorce or addition of a child? Or did you change jobs or retire? Any of these events could lead you to adjust your investment plans, so now may be the time to do so, possibly with the help of a nancial professional. Review your investment mix. At least once a year, its a good idea to review your investment mix to ensure its still suitable for your goals and risk tolerance. Sometimes, even without your taking any action, your portfolio might change in ways you hadnt expected. For example, suppose you wanted your portfolio to contain 60% stocks and 40% bonds and other investments. After a period of rising prices, though, the value of your stocks may have increased so much that they now occupy 65% of your portfolio which means you may be taking on more risk than you had originally intended. Consequently, you may need to rebalance your portfolio to get back to your original 60% to 40% ratios. (Keep in mind that these gures are just for illustration; everyones ideal portfolio mix will depend on their individual situations.) These arent the only year-end moves you may want to consider, but they can help you close out 2018 on a positive note. Plus, they can serve as a reminder that you need to be vigilant as you keep working toward your nancial goals.

4 Caloosa Belle November 8, 2018 OLD SCHOOL I have been accused of being Old School many times. I was told we dont do it that way anymore. I agree. To me old school is what I grew up with. I was the youngest of four kids. The rst sixteen years of my life were spent on the farm. By age eleven I was the only kid left at home. Mom and Dad both worked. My job was to feed the animals and feed my self breakfast and lunch. Mom and Dad got home after 6 or 7pm. Mom always xed a great meal for supper. In the winter my job was to cut kindling and start a re in the wood stove. That was all the heat we had. Yes, I walked about half a mile to a one room school where all 8 grades were taught. Rain or snow did not matter. Mo days off unless it was a Blizzard storm. That was the rst four years of my schooling. Then I rode a bus to the closest small town which had larger schools. We were short on material things but long on love for family. I was taught to respect my elders. And that Elders must live a life that deserved that respect. Spankings Moms yardstick was never abused. We learned to fear doing wrong. We learned about Jesus and the Bible. Tak ing care of family (cousins, Aunts, Uncles, ect.) was what we all did. I learned that when you have a wife and kids, the I want was replaced with we need. There was no shootings murders armed robberies in our community. Some where we seem to have lost that thinking. I often wonder why those who win mil lions of dollars dont help their community. To me I would buy a home, a car, take care of family who needed help and invest in the town I lived in. I would try to nd a way to fund better pay for teachers, law enforce ment, reghters, EMTs, trade schools and scholarships. Our life should be lived as an example of a good Christian. Thanking god for what we have and asking for forgiveness for our bad judgements. I try to live the Golden Rule. Sometimes it is really hard and sometimes I dont succeed. I believe we were put here to make the world a better place when we die than it was during our life. We all can make a dif ference. Random acts of kindness, a smile, a thank you might change someones whole day for the better. Money can not buy happiness. What you do with it can make you happy. But then what do I know, Im just an old citied country boy. Ed Kuntz Letter to the Editor By Heather Caldwell Special to the Caloosa Belle On Friday evening November 2, the Bar ron Park House Gallery held The Perceptions Art Show. It was a lovely event complete with complimentary wine, a full buffet of hor doeuvres, and the most talented artists in the area. And the place was packed. So many people from the community came to take in all of the artwork that the Arts of the Inland artists had worked so hard to create. All artists worked under the theme of Perceptions, but the media and subjects were drastically varied. Some artists focused on rural life with barns and animals, and others focused on familial ideas like vaca tion spots, brothers, and child-like animals. Abstract, photography, collage, realism, and impressionism lined the walls, something for every taste. The gallery is a treasure of the city that celebrates local talent. If you were unable to make it to the show on Friday night, all of the artwork will still be on display throughout this month. The gallery is located on the riv er in downtown LaBelle at 471 N Lee Street, and is open Thursday-Sunday from 12:00 p.m.5:00 p.m.. Be sure to follow @barronparkhousegal lery on Facebook and Instagram to nd out more information about upcoming events and opportunities to get creative. Currently, there is a fundraiser to purchase handmade ornaments and many upcoming workshops.

12 Caloosa Belle November 8, 2018 We are a Medicaid plan based close to where you live and work. VividaHealth.com Local doctors in charge of your care. Friendly, helpful customer service. Caring support network. By Lilly Hart Special to the Caloosa Belle Also known as criminal mischief it is the willful and malicious destruction of property that doesnt belong to you. The LaBelle area parks this year have seen an increase in van dalism. Vandalism from grafti on walls to busted ceramic toilets. A single incident of vandalism to property according to the U.S. Small Business Admin istration costs on average $3,370. Vandalism is a crime, misdemeanor for damages under a limit set by the state and a felony above that mark. The felony is punishable by a ne and prison time. A lot of people might say is that fair, jail time, think about it. It is your money and it was taken from you. Is that fair? Keeping these parks safe, clean and fun for all to use is the number one priority of the employees of the Hendry-LaBelle Recre a tion Board. The damage to our restrooms is by far the worst damage from a single inci dent that Hendry-LaBelle Recreation Board incurs. Picnic tables, bleachers, fencing and the list goes on. It is so disappointing that someone in LaBelle who destroy these parks dont recognize that the people who use the parks pay the price for so much damage and such damage hurts us all. Our parks get a lot of use by all citizens. Different organizations hold many functions in our parks. LaBelle doesnt have a movie theater or arcade game room. What is there for our young teenage citizens to do? Take a look at a park the next time you drive by. Better yet, stop in at the park and see what is going on and enjoy the amenities. These parks are for all citizens as well as sports leagues. The Hendry-LaBelle Rec Board has been hard at working on opening the Hendry-La Belle Regional Sports Complex. The new fencing that was put in recently for the baseball backstops, someone already took a crowbar and punctured a hole in. The list goes on. It is truly disappointing to see our Rec Dept. crew working so hard to keep these parks in tip top shape for someone to come along and destroy them. Its the well-be haved park users that will be affected by oth ers bad behavior. Over the next few years you will notice a change from our ceramic restroom xtures to stainless steel to help curtail some of this damage. Thats not to say that they cant be damaged but the Rec Board hopes it will make people think twice before deciding to damage public property that we all use. The Rec Board will be imple menting a camera system in all of our parks. The community must consider the facts and what must be done. We must go to our parks and enjoy them. If you see someone doing any sort of damage in a park alert the authorities, call (863) 674-5600. If more cit izens are aware of the vandalism and are looking for this inappropriate behavior it will begin to disappear. This is a good goal that we must all participate in to achieve positive results. Vandalism cannot be addressed by one group of people. It must be a conscious decision by all citizens where community property is involved. LaBelle is a strong community when we stand united and together. Thousands of dollars in damage caused by Vandals Submitted photo Sheriff Whidden and Director Ramiro Rodriguez show what will happen if you are caught in the act of vandalism. Submitted photo Some of the vandalism that has been done.
