Search for development chief nears end

Alabama man
is county manager's
pick fqr post.

gackson@lakecityreporter. corn
The search is nearly over to
hire a replacement for Jim Poole,
who retired as director of the
Columbia County Economic
Development Department on
June 27 after nearly 19 years on
the job.

County officials have narrowed
the list of applicants from a nation-
wide search and said they should
make a decision soon, possibly
'this week.
"I really hope I'll have an
announcement Thursday night,"
said Dale Williams, Columbia.
County manager.
Williams said he plans to, ask
commissioners to approve his
decision to hire Jesse Quillen, of
Chatham, Ala., north of Mobile.
Quillen, former mayor of Bruce,
Ala. from1999 through 2008, has

a master's degree from Southern
Mississippi University and an
extensive background in econom-
ic development, Williams said.
Quillen visited the county last
weekend and met with individual
commissioners during his stay,l
Williams said.
"I would like to say they' [coim-w
missioners] were impressed," he
said. "I got very good feedback."
Williams said it is his decision
who to hire as Poole's replace-
ment. Commissioners inust
approve the salary and benefits

package that Williams plans to
offer Quillen.
If commissioners approve
Williams' recommendation and
Quillen accepts the offer, the new
director's responsibilities will be
to provide assistance to exist-
ing businesses and attract fnew"
employers to the county.
The search lasted nearly five
months because the county was
unable to find qualified applicants
with the background and skills they
were seeking when they initially
advertised the vacant position.

"We advertised in routine
channels but the applicants were
not what we were looking for,"
he said.
Williams said the county then
hired a consultant to identify
potential candidates based on the
criteria they believe is necessary
to perform the job.
"We tried to match candidates
with the demands of the job," he
said. "We definitely got. the one
who has the skills. He understands

help fill out paperwork, determine the
child's specific wish and report back
to the foundation. When the wish is
granted, the volunteers getto break the

Sandusky interview surprises Costas

; "BC worked feverishly to
spread the word about
Bob Costas' exclusive
interview with former
assistant Penn State
football coach Jerry Sandusky, who
is accused of sexually assaulting -
boys, even as the two men were still
on the phone together.
Their talk, broadcast Monday on.
the "Rock Center" newsmagazine,
was part of a remarkable evening
of news interviews on broadcast
TV. It competed directly with Diane
Sawyer's interview with U.S. Rep.
Gabrielle Giffords on ABC, which
was ABC's most-watched news show
since the summer.
The riveting interview with
Sandusky, who is accused of sexu-
ally abusing eight boys over a 15-year
period, was a surprise even to Costas.
The veteran NBC Sports anchor
was in a Manhattan studio for an
interview with Sandusky's lawyer,
Joseph Amendola, when the lawyer
said, "What if I can get Sandusky on
the phone?" Costas said Tuesday on
MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
"I'm thinking, 'I wonder from your'
standpoint whether that's the smart-
est thing to do,' but at the same
Time, sure.if you want to do it. Let's
get him on the phone," said Costas,
- who declined an interview request
with The Associated Press through a
About 10 or 15 minutes later, the
interview began.
NBC immediately faced a chal-
lenge in how to publicize an inter-
Sview with three hours' notice, par-
ticularly given that few people watch
NBC's prime-time lineup. The inter-
view was taped starting about 6:30
p.m. EST, and while it was still
happening, a producer called to a
nearby studio where Brian Williams,

Former Penn State football defensive coordinator Gerald "Jerry" Sandusky, sits in a.
car as he leaves a courthouse in State College, Pa. recently. *

.was. anchoring "Nightly News" .to
make sure Williamis promoted it,
before he got off the air, said Rome
Hartman, "Rock Center" executive
"Rock Center" staffers also began
tweeting quotes from the interview
almost as soon as they left Sandusky's
mouth, and the show's blog was
updated. A video clip of the interview
was posted online by about 7:30 p.m.,
with all TV networks given permis-
sion to use it, .
Ultimately, "Rock Center" was seen
by 3.87 million viewers, Nidlsen said,
well behind the .13.4 million people
who watched the well-promhoted inter-
view with Giffords. That still beat
the 3.46 million -people who watched
"Rock Center" the previous Monday,.
and clips of the interview were wide-

ly disseminated and discussed otn
, With countless journalists looking
to speak to Sandusky, it's not clear
why Costas was chosen. Perhaps his
work in sports made him a more
familiar and comfortable choice.for
a man who was Joe Paterno's top
defensive' assistant for many years at
Penn State.
Perhaps the most arresting moment
came when Costas asked Sandusky if
he was sexually attracted to underage
boys. Sandusky at first repeated the
question, ,then said: "I enjoy young
people. I love to be around them,"
before denying sexual attraction.
"I'll let the viewer infer what they
want from that, but it was somewhat
odd," Costas said on "Morning Joe."

State hired law firm with ties to Scott

Associated Press
TAIUAHASSEE Florida has spent
nearly a half-million dollars- and could
spend even more with a large, well-
known law firm that has connections to
both the Republican Party of Florida as'
well as Gov. Rick Scott.
Since August the state has paid
nearly $400,000 to the law firm of
- Alston and Bird to defend a new state
law that requires public employees to
contribute 3 percent of their pay to
the state pension fund.
The firm was hired at the urging
of the Scott administration which
asked Attorney General Pam Bondi
to approve paying the firm hourly
rates at $495 an hour or nearly $300
more than what is normally allowed.

The Scott administration and
Bondi have defended the hiring of
the firm, saying it specializes in the
kind of litigation that the state is now
involved in.
But the firm's roster also includes a
one-time business associate of Scott.
While not working directly on
the lawsuit, a senior counsel with
the firm's Washington D.C. office
is Thomas Scully. Scully is also a
general partner with the New York
investment firm of Welsh, Carson,
'Anderson & Stowe. That's the invest-
ment firm that this June purchased
Scott's shares in Solantic, a chain
of urgent care clinics the governor
started back in 2001.
Scully, who once led the Federation
of American Hospitals, was appointed
to the board of directors of Solantic

back in 2008. .
Scott last year valued his shares
in Solantic at $62 million. He initially
transferred his; ownership interest
to his wife's revocable trust prior to
taking office in January. But then
Scott sold the shares amid questions
as to whether he could benefit finan-
cially from state efforts to privatize
Medicaid and require drug .testing
for welfare recipients. Scott main-
tained that Solantic would not seek
state contracts and said he was just
too busy as governor to spend time
overseeing business interests.
Scott, the former head of the mas-
sive Columbia/HCA hospital chain,
said' that he has known Scully for 20
years. But he said on Tuesday that
he didn't know that Scully worked for
Alston and Bird.

The county changed the department's
name in January from the Industrial

the name change is more than cosmetic.

ers, but also retail employers to the area.

TAPES: More complete version of Air Force 1 tape long sought

tape up for sale Tuesday.
: The recording is the high-
light of the personal effects
from the estate of Clifton,
who was Kennedy's senior,
military aide and was in the
Dallas motorcade when the
president was assassinated.
Clifton, who died in
1991, had kept a collection
of audio tapes, documents,
photographs and video
stemming from his years in
the Kennedy and Johnson
administrations. The Raab
Collection, which is selling
the tape and the rest of the
archive, acquired the items
at a public sale from Clifton's
heirs after the death of
Clifton's wife in 2009. '
"At a time when there
really wasn't 'what we con-
sider today a chief of staff,
Clifton carried on many of
those functions," Raab said.'
"He retires in 1965, this goes
with him."
The recording consists of

In 1981, a group of dem-
onstrators set up camp
outside a British air base to
protest the government's
decision to allow U.S.
nuclear-tipped cruise missiles to
be based there.
The Greenham Common
Women's Peace Camp initially
generated a great deal of public-
ity, inspired imitators in other
countries, sporadically tried to
block access to the air base, and
perhaps reached its zenith in
1983 when as many'as 70,000
people turned out for one of their

attempts by police to evict them,

In 1991, thanks to a nuclear-
arms treaty with the Soviet
Union, the last of the cruise mis-
siles were removed, taking with
them, one would have thought,
the reason'for the camp. But the
women stayed on for nine more
years, expressing an increasingly
vague and inchoate commit-
ment to "peace." Many of the
Greenham women cited a sense
of unity, sisterhood, shared pur-
pose and, when pressed, little
desire to return to the humdrum
routine of their former lives.

Habitat home a fresh start for

woman displaced by Katrina

BAY ST. LOUIS, Miss..-
On Aug. 28, 2005, Donna
Horstmann heeded themnonstop
warnings issued by Hancock
County emergency officials:
All residents should leave all
low-lying Gulf Coast towns
in the county immediately.
Hurricane Katrina is coming.
It is a Category 5 storm, pack-
ing winds of 125 mph. When it
makes landfall, it will bring a
storm surge of 30 feet or more.
Horstmann and her brother
Sevycuated to her son's hous.e.
tn. higher ground a. few miles -
away, leaving behind the home
shehad owned and loved for
years just two blocks from the
beach in Clermont Harbor. That
night, Katrina came ashore,
battering the house. Next door,
a mobile home exploded, and
houses were lifted off their con-
crete foundations.
"After it all calmed down,
there was nothing," Horstmann,
now 52, said. "The whole area
was completely destroyed."
I first met Horstmann a year
ago. Her experience is horrible
to contemplate: a hardworking
woman who lost everything by
no fault of her own.
"For the first two weeks,
National Guard helicopters
dropped C-rations and water,"
she.said. "That's how we
pretty much survived. We
ate C-rations.... The National
Guard finally got to us on the
ground and brought cleaning
supplies. We didn't know what
to do with cleaning supplies.
Clean what? .,
"They set up a kind of station
where we could go and pick
food and water. We were in a
tent for a while. It was horrible.

Fed up with the degradation,
Horstmann and her brother
packed up and moved back
to Cincinnati, where she was
born. But after about three
months, she missed her chil-
dren so much that she returned
to Bay St. Louis and stayed in
a tiny FEMA trailer for about
three months.
After she found a job at the
new Walmart, a co-worker
told her she should apply
for a house with Habitat for
Humanity. That advice changed
her life in ways she had not
imagined. And it is how I came
to meet her last year, volunteer-
ing on the project that built
her new home. Her story is a
poignant reminder of how this
nonprofit program, run largely
on volunteer labor across the
country, continues to make
an extraordinary difference in
people's lives..

"I'd never heard of Habitat,
but I applied," she said. "One
thing led to another. I was
approved and here I am. I've
been in my new home for about
four months. From the time I
applied, it took 13 to 14 months
to get in my house. To qualify,
I had to have a job. Salary
was the big thing. They did a
background check and a credit
There was also the require-
ment for 250 hours of sweat
equity. "I learned a lot,"
Horstmann'said. "I wouldn't
appreciate my house as much
as I do if I hadn't helped build
it: I can fix just about anything
because I worked on it and saw
how it was built"
Horstmann said she knows
that without Habitat she would
likely have never again owned
a home: "I could not have quali-
fied for a regular FHA loan. I
am divorced, and I would not
have made enough money."
Her down payment for the
house, with the lot, was a mere
$250. Her interest-free monthly
mortgage payment is $530,
which includes insurance.
Long before Katrina
destroyed everything,
Horstmann had been a hard
worker. Now, she works harder
than ever, holding down two
jobs one at Walmart, the
other at Grammy's Donuts and
More. She works 18-hour days,
five days a week.
"Habitat gave me a new
start," she said. "I am living in
my own home."

Silvio Berlusconi .
made a rare miscal-
culation in seeking to
hold onto his office.
He would resign, he promised,
when Parliament enacted a pack-
age of difficult economic and
political reforms, banking on the
inefficiency of Italy's political
machinery to delay his departure
for weeks, months, maybe even
long enough for a miraculous
economic turnaround.
It took Parliament two days to
approve the reforms. And while
the scandal-tarred Berlusconi said
goodbye, he doesn't necessarily
believe he's gone for good. The
head of his party said that while
he was out of office, "Berlusconi
is not taking up gardening."
As for Berlusconi himself, he
said he would "redouble" his
efforts to reform Italy's "institu-
tions, judiciary and tax system,"

Dale McFeatters
efforts he consistently refused
to make in his eight and a half
years in office. Instead, he used
his political power, business
and media interests to enrich
himself, his friends, support his
women companions and keep
himself out of jail.
Meanwhile, Italy steadily
neared financial collapse. It
wasn't too big to fail, but as the
world's eighth-largest economy,
at some point it would become
too big to rescue. The conse-
quences would likely be every

bit as dire as The Economist
said it would be:
"At stake is not just the Italian
economy but Spain, Portugal,
Ireland, the euro, the European
Union's single market, the glob-
al banking system, the world
economy and pretty much any-
thing else you can think of."
The man entrusted with pre-
venting that disaster is Mario
Monti, immediately dubbed
"Super Mario" for the task
ahead of him. Monti, 68, is not
a politician, but an econom-
ics professor who served in
two key economic posts in the
European Commission.
His first big test comes next
April, when $273 billion in debt,
part of $410 billion in total
debt, comes due. It must be
redeemed or rolled over.

Afghan conference of elders to discuss U.S. role

Associated Press
KABUL, Afghanistan- Despite
Taliban threats, about 2,000
Afghan elders will convene this
week as President Hamid Karzai
seeks support for a security part-
nership with the U.S. after the
scheduled withdrawal of interna-
tional troops by the end of 2014.
The loya jirga, or grand coun-
cil, could give .Karzai political
cover for negotiations over a deal
to keep some American troops in
Afghanistan for another decade
despite opposition from his people
and the war-weary U.S. public.
Karzai has set out terms 'for
a possible partnership such

as banning international troops
from entering any Afghan home
and taking control of all detention
facilities almost immediately -
that have so far been unaccept-
able to American officials, accord-
ing to people familiar with the
The roughly 100,000 U.S. troops
currently in Afghanistan operate
without any bilateral agreement
governing their actions.
In Washington, U.S. State
Department spokesman Mark
Toner said discussions were ongo-
ing with the Afghan government.
"We want an agreement that's
'in the best interest of both our
countries," Toner said. "It's better
to get it right rather than fast."

Karzai has repeatedly vacillated
between criticizing the U.S. for
acting unilaterally in Afghanistan
and praising his American allies
as brothers in arms against the
Taliban. It has been difficult to tell
in recent months if he is just try-
ing to stoke populist support with
his criticism or is really preparing
to stand firm on what he sees as a
violation of sovereignty.
Few expect the four-day loya
jirga, which begins Wednesday,
to produce much of substance,.
both because its legal status is
unclear and because there is no
draft accord to present to the
assembled elders.
Parliamentarians say the meet-
ing is unconstitutional because it

sidelines the legislature, which
should be the body to decide
national issues.
'"The real representatives of the
people are in parliament. We have
been elected. The jirga delegates
have only been selected by the
administration," said Nasrullah
Sadiqizada Nili, a lawmaker from
Day Kundi province. Although
parliamentarians have been invit-
ed, Nili said he and many others
would not attend in protest.
.'This loya jirga has no legiti-
macy," Nili said.
Karzai's former presidential
challenger, Abdullah Abdullah,
ridiculed the idea of Karzai's
hand-picking a group of people to
represent a national consensus.

He said that even the idea of "trib-
al elder" had been bent to political
aims, noting that he was invited r
as a "dignitary from the Panjshir -
tribe" though he has no position
of leadership in a tribe.
He went on to warn that if
people accept this jirga as legal,
Karzai could easily call another to
try to amend the constitution so
that he can run for a third term as
"Holding this jirga is illegal. It
is against our country's consti- -
tution. The goals and aims are.
confusing. This jirga has hidden
goals and whatever decisions are
made in this jirga are not accept-
able," Abdullah told reporters

Of course, it takes more

Kishton/Witt win MGA 2

. Scott Kishton' and Eli
Witt posted the best nine-
hole score in the MGA 21
tournament and hung on
for a one-stroke win.
The twosome's 49-55-104
was just enough, to over-
come Greg Lyons and
Terry Arnold at 105. Bob.
Randall and Jim McGriff
also finished at 105, but
fell to third in a scorecard
Charlie Timmons broke
out of a prolonged slump to
post a +8 for a two-shot win
in Wednesday's blitz. Steve
Patterson carded his third
birdie of the day on the back
nine to secure second place
at +6. Dennis Crawford (+5)
was in third, followed by
Tony Garcia (+4) in fourth.
All three of Patterson's
birdies were good for skins,
and the final one gave him a
pot hole win. Unfortunately
the pot hole purse was only
a week old. The big pot hole
purse as still up for grabs.
Donald Roberts, Roger
Mitzel and Crawford
cashed in one skin each,
with Crawford's coming on
an eagle on the par-5 No.
In the Good Old Boys
match one, Marc Risk, Jim
Bell and Bobby Simmons
posted an 8-7 win over
Monty Montgomery, Dave
Cannon and Carl Wilson.
In match two, Ed Snow,
Jo'e Persons, Jim Stevens

Formal complaint is lodged

against informal salutations

DEAR ABBY: Whenever
I receive a business com-
munication from someone
unknown to me with my
first name in the saluta-
tion, as in "Dear Robert," it
immediately goes into the
Being addressed by my
first name in this context
is just plain wrong. Since I
don't know the person who
is sending the correspon-
dence, I find the informal
tone to be highly improper.
Please remind your
readers particularly
those in business about
your booklet on cor-
respondence and com-
munication, "How to
Write Letters for All
I have been accused
of being "old school."
However, there are rules
and guidelines governing
written communication,
and it seems as though
they are being ignored.
Would you please inform
people about the proper
way to write? And is your
"Letters" booklet still
available? CALL ME
hope that by the time this
email sees print, you will
have cooled off. The com-
munications that offend
you probablywere sent
as part of a mass mailing
generated by a computer.
If that isn't the case, then

Abigail Van Buren
the individuals who drafted
them may ndt have real-
ized that in business corre-
spondence, the salutation
should read:
Dear Ms. Smith
Dear Mr. Carson.
The "Letters" booklet
is still available and cov-
ers additional salutations
that are helpful to know,
including how to address
a senator or congress-
man, a clergyperson, etc.
"How to Write Letters
* for All Occasions" can
be ordered by sending
a business-sized, self-
addressed envelope,
plus a check or money
order for $6 (U.S. funds),
to Dear Abby Letters
Booklet, P.O. Box 447,
Mount Morris, IL 61054-
0447. Shipping/and han-
dling are included in the
price. My booklet also
contains helpful sugges-
tions for writing letters
of congratulations; dif-
ficult topics to .address
such as letters.of con-
dolence for the loss of a.
parent, spouse or child;
and thank-you letters for
birthday gifts,ishower

gifts, wedding gifts and .
those that arrive at holi-
day time. (A tip" Keep a
notepad handy and write
down what immediately
comes to mind when the
gift is opened. This can
be helpful if later you are
at a loss for words!)
Judging from the high
volume of email and
snail mail I receive, letter
composition is something
that is not always effec-
tively taught in school.
My booklet can provide a
helpful assist for anyone
who needs a quick and
easy tutorial, and it is
particularly helpful for
parents to usekas a way to
easily teach their children
how to write using proper
etiquette. Keep it in a
drawer and dip into it as

DEARABBY: I am 8.'
years old. At the bottom of
a letter, sometimes people
write XOXO. Which one
means hug and which one
means kiss? ANNA IN
means kiss and the "0"
signifies a hug.
P.S. Some people write
"SWAK" on the flap of the
envelope, which stands for
"sealed with kiss."

Century Ambulance
provides private
transport in N.E. Fla.
From staff reports
F or 20 years
in Columbia
County, Century
Ambulance has
patients to and from hospi-
tals and backed up emer-
gency services.
"Our role in the com-
munity is inter-facility
i. transportation as well as
back up mutual aid
for 911 services," said
Marsha Morrell. Century
Ambulance vice president.
Century ambulances
most often transport
patients from one hospital
to another for specialty
services, for example from
Lake City hospitals to
Shands at the University of
Florida in Gainesville.
Medical facilities, insur-
ance companies and coun-
ty 911 dispatchers contact
Century for ambulance
If emergency services
need additional ambulanc-
es they call Century for

back up, she said.
uDuring the 2007
Bugaboo fires, the Florida
Department of Health called
for a potential evacuation *
of patients from 'a Lake <
City hospital at 11 p.m.
one evening. Morrell said
Century provided 15 of
the 30 ambulances staged
at the Columbia County
Fairgrounds in the event an
evacuation was needed.
The private ambulance
company has about 270
employees arid about 42
ambulances in five coun-
ties in northeast Florida.
Owner Herbert S. Seller II,
a retired Jacksonville Fire
Rescue captain, started the
company in 1981 around the
Jacksonville area.
All ambulances services
in the state are held to the
same requirements and
criteria, Morrell said.
Century carries extra
medical equipment and
medications in order to
accommodate more patients
* and situations, she said.
Paramedics are criti-
cal career certified which
requires additional training
beyond normal paramedic
requirements, she said.

Second time stronger
**' *'* **' '.... n* g e r *''.~II^."

After a stroke, he
made it his mission to
help others keep fit.

Jeffrey Parker is a person who
doesn't like to, sit around, and
volunteering is his way to stay.,
Parker's motivation behind
volunteering began as e worked
his way back to recovering'from
a massive stroke that impacted
his mobility, speech and other
daily functions that he had taken
for granted. He used that moti-
vation to become a volunteer at
the Lifestyle Enrichment Center
where he now helps seniors and
others remain active.
"I rehabilitated myself to the
maximum as quickly as I could
and I know that I've got to keep
progressing," he said. "Debbie
Freeman (Lifestyle Enrichment
Center executive director),
asked me whenever I got better
if I would come down and help
her with her training at her facil-
ity.. I told her I would be more
than happy to do that."
Parker, 55, has worked at the
Lifestyle Enrichment Center for
close to 16 months as a volunteer
in the agency's workout gym.
"I like being able to progress
the seniors into having better
information about their health
and wellness," he said. "They can:
benefit from the effects of the
gym they have at the Lifestyle
Enrichment Center by exercis- ,
ing, which also tones muscle,
helps their balance and fall
protection. It also puts a smile
on their faces and it makes my
heart feel so good to see a smile
on their face. They. achieve a lot
The Lifestyle Enrichment
Center's gym has a cardiovascu-
lar exercise sectionwhere ,active
seniors can work out on tread-
mills and stationary bikes and
Parker' said he also works with
seniors on a lot of techniques on
walking and balance with elastic,
bands, light weight lifting (less
than 10 pounds) and various
other techniques.
"Ifs all done in an controlled
environment inside a building,"
he said. "The senior progress
along and along and we have
charts made up so we can see
where we, are at and what we're
doing as far as progression."
Parker said he utilizes a hand-
rail, located in the facility's hall-
way, for seniors who stress work-
ing on balance exercises.
"It's just a great thing that we
do and each individual is spe-
cial because they have their own
things that they really want to do
to make them intense and enrich
their lives," he said.
Parker conducts his training
sessions 9- 11 a.m. Wednesday
- Friday and there are other
trainers who volunteer in the
gym on Thursdays and Friday.
"Wednesday is my main day,"
he said. '"There is a good group
of core people that really know
what's happening."
Parker has been involved with
the Lifestyle Enrichment Center
since the 1970s and has known
Freeman for roughly the same
length of time -from when he
would visit the seniors while
working on his Eagle Scout

Protect your retirement nest egg

For the more than 70
million Baby Boomers
approaching retirement,
the road to their financial
goals has become much
cloudier than for previous
With benefits such as
Social Security and employ-
er pensions less certain, it
is up to those, approach-
ing, or at, retirement, to
choose the right strategy
and information sources
for making responsible
"Boomers are living lon-
ger and more active lives
and should consider tak-
ing greater responsibility
for the protection of their
retirement savings so they
don't outlive their nest
eggs," says Holly Burgess,
VP, Strategy and Marketing
Communications, Liberty
Mutual. "It's important to
create a safe retirement
savings strategy custom-
ized to your needs."
There are several things
Boomers can do to help
safeguard their retire-
Plan and Protect
Focus on protecting
your nest egg via conser-
vative investments. Start
by asking what "safety"
means to you.
Are you seeking to pro-
tect your principal from
stock market volatility
or looking for protection
from taxation as you grow
your assets?
I, your top priority
planning for the unfore-
seen, such as funds for
future medical emergen-
cies? According to: the
U.S. Department, of Labor,
almost 20 percent of retir-
ee income will be spent on
health care. .
Knowing- this will help
you.decide where to invest"
the portion of your nest egg
you aim to safeguard.
Think Conservatively
An easy rule of thumb is
that you'll need to replace
70 to 90 percent of your
pre-retirement income, say
the experts at the Certified
Financial Planner (CFP)
Board of Standards.
Your asset allocation may.
change over time, the CFP-
Board points out As you,
age you may opt to limit
exposure to riskier invest-
ments like stocks by "invest-
ing more conservatively.
Choose Safely
For the portion of retire-
ment savings you want to
protect for near-term use,
consider safer options.
Many financial planners are
advising older Americans
to consider conservative
alternatives like Certificates
of Deposit, Fixed income
Funds and Fixed Deferred.
Unlike more vola-
tile investments, Fixed
Deferred Annuities pro-
tect your principal while
providing the opportunity
to generate regular, peri-
odic income. These prod-
ucts are offered by insur-
ance companies and pay a
fixed, guaranteed interest
rate for an initial period.
Theterate may change later
but cannot drop below a
guaranteed minimum.
Unlike many investments,
interest earned on an
annuity is tax deferred.
Details about these types
of products can be found
on such websites as www.
It is important to con-
sider an insurer's financial
strength and to choose an
annuity that allows you to
customize it and access,
funds when you need
Take Control
"Don't sacrifice control
over the design and price
of the product you pur-
chase. Pay for the features

you need for your individ-
ual situation," says Mark
McVeigh, SVP, Marketing
and Distribution, Liberty
Lastly, understand any
risks or sacrifices involved
with each product.

Staying active in retirement

Despite the promise of
ample free time, retirement
is not something every-
one looks forward to with
happy anticipation. Many
approaching this life stage
worry that the unstruc-
tured time will be tedious
and unfulfilling.
But there's no need to
fear a life of greater leisure.
There are many ways to
make the most of one's years
after leaving the workforce,
points out Sidney Silverman,
a retired trial lawyer of 43
years and author of a new
book of memoirs, "A Happy
Life: From Courtroom to
Classrooni," which he
wrote when he was 76.
"I wanted to write only
about my retirement, but
how could I do that without
tellingwhatI did before retir-
ing?" says Silverman whose
book details his career and
active retirement, during
which he enrolled in gradu-
ate school,, tried his hand at
tournament chess and wrote
two books.
With this in mind, he is
offering several tips to help
make retirement the high-
light of youi life:
Stay Active: Don't let
health problems become an
excuse to sit around and stare
into space. Take stock of how'.
you feel, and seek activities'
consistent with your physical'
and mental strength.
Take on New Hobbies:
It's never too late to discov-
er new passions you didn't
have time to pursue when
you were working. Test your
fondness. Whether ifs wood-'
working, music, photography
or fishing, now that free time
is plentiful, jump in head-first
and pursue what yOu love.
Volunteer If unstruc-
tured time makes the hours
of the day feel endless, look
for volunteer work that will
keep you as actively engaged
as when you worked.
Keep Learning: You're
never too old to stop learn-
ing. There are many colleges
eager to admit seniors. All
you need is the,will to learn.
advises Silverman ,
Stay Upbeat Don't be
gloomy. Avoid making what
ails you the focal point of,
every conversation. Books,
politics, sports, invest-
ments, real estate, and your.
family are all healthy stand-
in topics.

Si StatePoint

Golfing is one good way to stay active in retirement.

Practice Simple Home Maintenance
Don't burn a hole in your wallet this year with inefficient
heating. By performing a few simple home maintenance
tasks, you can maximize use of your heating system.
Keep air registers, grills and radiators free of obstruc-

your visual cue to clean or replace the air filter on your
furnace. Leaky ductwork can be sealed up with silver tape
from any home-improvement store, And having your fur-
nace serviced each season should be a line-item in every
homeowner's budget
