When I say Payday Lenders, I'm talking about all those check cashing companies that are set up for short term loans at high interest rates and who drag many people deeper and deeper into debt. A newspaper friend in Illinois shared the following true story with me. One of his relatives (a lady) needed some money, so she borrowed $800 with payback time of 2 weeks or pay interest and extend. She said she could not remember the exact interest but it was 25% or more. To make a long story, short, she didn't have the money to pay it back and kept extending and actually went to another location to borrow money to pay back the first loan. This poor lady kept going from place to place and playing the float game but piling up high interest fees. When her $800 became $2,400 she called for help. They threatened court action to get the money. She had no way out. My friend loaned her the money with no interest with the stipulation that they sit down together, go over her finances and work out a payment plan AND get her on a budget. She did remarkable and paid the loan in full in 10 months on a $24,000 annual salary. During this time, she was able to pay a couple of major bills (insurance, new set of tires, and some auto repair) without borrowing money. She took the money from the savings she had built up. In the end, she learned a valuable lesson but an expensive one. The good thing is that she realized that she had to change spending habits and she did. Praise the Lord!! Now, she is spending "HER" money. (Jim Davidson is a motivational speaker and syndicated columnist. You may contact him at 2 Bentley Drive, Conway, AR 72034.)

LE00ER& [ to the editor I Dear Editor: The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the federal agen- cy that administers Medicare, has contracted with a research organiza- tion to conduct a telephone survey in February and March of 2002 in Ken- tucky. This survey asks Medicare beneficiaries if they had a flu shot during the 2001-2002 season and whether they have ever had a pneu- mococcal or "pneumonia" shot. These are services that are strongly encouraged for all beneficiaries and available to Medicare Part B benefi- ciaries at no cost. This survey is being done to help determine how many beneficiaries actually take advantage of this ben- efit and protect themselves from the Flue and from pneumococcal dis- ease, commonly in the form of pneu- monia. These two diseases are the seventh leading causes of death in the United States. More than 90% of these deaths are in people aged 65 or above. The survey is scheduled to begin near the middle of February. Nearly 2000 Medicare beneficiaries in the state may have received a letter from the research organiza- tion, Abt Associates, describing the survey and alerting them that they will receive a call from the Abt. A postcard will be enclosed that allows the beneficiary to return the card with his or her current telephone number, day of the week, and times most convenient for the call. We encourage all seniors who re- ceive this letter to return the postcard and to participate in this survey. This will be important information for Medicare to determine how many beneficiaries are protected from the flu and pneumococcal disease. Medi- care billing claims information does not reflect shots given to seniors in settings where they do not bill Medi- care, so this information is very im- portant. If seniors have not yet gotten their flu shot, it's not too late. They should contact their doctor, health depart- ment, or other health care providers to find where they can get a shot. For those aged 65 or greater, or younger with a chronic condition of the heart, lungs, kidneys, or blood, they should also get a pneumococcal or pneumo- ACROSS 1 Society new- comer 4 Baffle 9 Regis' employer 12 Kayaker's prop 13 Soft-boiling aid 14 Chum 15 Tart fruit used in preserves 17 Expert 18 Early hrs. 19 Brunch entree 21 Seal of approval 24 Actress Campbell 25 So as to emulate 26 Bottom line 28 Sleuths, slangily 31 Angry 33 Staff 35 Highway divi- sion 36 Aquarium favorite 38 Energy 40 "Arabian Nights" flier 41 Sommelier's offering 43 Attractive 45 Command 47 Arcing shot 48 Pindaric piece 49 Axle-to-axle measure 54 Candle tally King Crossword 1 2 m 12 15 21 22 25 31 36 45 46 48 54 I 57 55 On Mom's side 56 DuPont rival 57 Either of AT&T's Ts 58 Memorization methods 59 Dump from the payroll DOWN 1 Billy Ray Cyrus series 2 Listening device 3 Monokini lack diamonds? ,7 Honeydew, for one 8 Intem-to-be's study 9 Upset the - (mess up) 10 Naked 11 Coagulate 16 "Humbug!" 20 Satan's spe- cialty 21 Throw 22 23 4 Pollen-bearing 27 organ 29 5 Tout 30 6 King of U.S. victory in the War on Terror- ism. U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Ann said he is "disturbed" about the U.S. announcement that we have a right as a sovereign nation to extend our military campaign against other countries harboring terrorists. Ruud Lubbers, head of the U.N. refugee agency, called for "self-restraint" by the U.S. in the war on terrorism. They want this to become another no-win war for our country - as in Korea and Vietnam, where the U.N. sabotaged our every effort and aided the Communists. And that means more Americans will die because of terrorists attacks. We must get the United States out of the U.N. and the U.N. out of the nia shot. This shot can be taken at United States. Also, we must expose any time during the year.

Sincerely, Connie Steigmeyer, RN, MSN Clinical Coordinator Dear Editor: Our nation's historical commit- ment to freedom has always angered and frustrated those who have want- ed to impose their ideology on the rest of the world. From age to age, these enemies may wear different masks, but they all have the same face - the cold face of totalitarian- ism. The United Nations is at war with the United States of America. Unit- ed Nations Secretary-General Kofi Ann wants to establish a Socialist one-world government, under the influence of the Arab/Islamic bloc of nations and Communist China, and only the United States stands in the way. The U.N., rather than aiding the U.S. war on terrorism, has actu- ally been giving aid and comfort to anti-American terrorists. Terrorists who have carried out suicide bombing attacks against Is- rael have been students at a United Nations run institution in the West Bank. The U.N. has even funded Osama bin Laden, whose agents killed 5000 of our fellow Americans on September 1 lth. In a startling revelation, the BBC on October 21, 2001, said the U.N. donated over $1 million to a charity believed by the U.S. to be a bin Laden front organi- zation. The U.N. donated more than $1.4 million in 1997 to the Sudan- based Muwafaq Foundation, a con- sortium of charities, floated by wealthy Arab business man Yasin al-Qadi, whose assets were frozen by the U.S. after the September 11 th terror strikes. In addition, every country the American government lists as a"state sponsor of terrorism" - Iran, Iraq, Syria, Libya, North Korea, Sudan and Cuba - is considered a "member in good standing" by the United Raymond L.

Palmer February 22, 2002 Lawmakers hit the halfway point of the General Assembly's 2002 leg- islative session last week. The first part of the session gave us opportunities to advance legisla- tion on issues ranging from afford- able housing to improving educa- tional opportunities. But even more matters--including the state bud- get--will receive scrutiny through- out the second half of the session. Two bills aimed at ensuring all Kentucky students have high-quali- ty learning opportunities were among the issues approved by the full Sen- ate in last week's legislative action. Senate Bill 132 would help en- sure schools meet their student per- formance goals• In schools where student performance steadily de- clines four years in a row, the legis- lation would allow a scholastic au- diting team to look into the function- ing of the school council and recom- mend whether or not the council should retain its authority. The legislation also would estab- lish a technical assistance program in the Department of Education to help schools that have a significant gap in the academic performance of various groups of students, includ- ing minority and non-minority stu- dents. Another measure we passed to help close achievement gaps among various Kentucky students is SB 168. This legislation would require schools to receive annual reports on achievement gaps identified between groups of students of different races, 10 11 29 3O nm 62 32 Pennsylvania pon 34 Use up 37 "Jeopardy!" clue 39 Working stiffs 42 Race (Pref.) 44 Penod of decline 45 Gravy vessel 46 Move cau- tiously . 50 Pack away Lotion additive 51 Oklahoma city.

With these reports, local boards, school councils and the public would have new opportuni- ties to set targets for closing those gaps. If any school fails to meet its target four years in a row, the Com- missioner of Education would have the authority to intercede. In last week's work we also ap- proved two abortion measures. SB 151 specifies that a face-to-face meeting between a health care pro- vider and a pregnant woman seeking an abortion must be held at least 24 hours before the abortion is per- formed. Lawmakers passed "in- formed consent" legislation in 1998 requiring that women seeking an abortion receive counseling about the procedure and their options at least 24 hours before the abortion is performed. SB 151 would clarify that the meeting must be held in person, not over the phone, so a woman could receive information and ask questions. The Senate also passed SB 109 to protect pharmacists from being dis- ciplined or fired if they decline to provide drugs that induce abortions for moral or religious reasons. In other business, we passed leg- islation to move Kentucky's primary elections up a week to avoid con- flicts with the Memorial Day holi- day. We also approved House Bill 388, which ensures volunteer emergency workers don't have their careers thrown into jeopardy through their volunteer work. The legislation is modeled after a popular bill we passed last year that protects volun- teer firefighters from being fired over a work absence caused by a volun- teer emergency response. HB 388 would extend similar job protection to volunteer rescue squad members, emergency medical technicians, peace officers and members of emer- gency management agencies. The pace of legislative activity will continue increasing throughout the remainder of the 2002 session. Many important issues will be de- bated and studied right up to the final day of the session. That makes this a crucial time for lawmakers to re- ceive feedback from the people we serve. If there's an issue lawmakers are considering---or should be consid- ering that you'd like to discuss, I • hope you'll share your thoughts with me by calling the General Assem- bly's toll-free message line at (800)782-7181.
