News Outlook August 05, 2021 - 5 THE RAINBOW AND THE OPOSSUM By Kathleen Perry When we see a rainbow in the sky we immediately remember that was a sign from above that the rain would stop and that man- kind would never again be destroyed by a flood, as in Noah’s day. Lately we haven’t been seeing too many rainbows. And some of us are getting antsy. After continuously watch- ing the weather bulletins and warnings Saturday night on tv, it was begin- ning to get to me. But God works in mysterious ways, His wonders to perform. At about three o’clock in the morning as I was look- ing out the kitchen Window to check the weather I saw one of the biggest opos- sums I have ever seen! The rain had stopped and the possum was digging around in the garden and finding something to eat. Mercy sakes! I reasoned that the rain must indeed be over if animals were com- ing out like that! As a child I always knew that when the chickens came out to look for food, the rain was over. Always has been true. I relaxed considerably, stopped worrying and went to bed. It wasn’t a rain- bow. . But Hey! Who’s go- ing to argue with a possum? The next day, Sunday, as I was doing some of the chores around the house, suddenly the living room and kitchen seemed to light up! I laughed when I realized it was something I hadn’t seen in days. The sun had come out! It was as CLASSIFIEDS OVER THE HILL if someone had flipped on a switch and said “Light!” Kim, my daughter who lives in Virginia and has had almost as much rain as we’ve had, said the same thing happened there. Her dog was so excited to see the sunshine that she went to the door and barked and barked! Smart dog! I felt like barking too! Animals are so smart, and if we’d take lessons from them, we would all get along so much better. Our family has long been a pack of animal lovers, hav- ing everything from dogs and hamsters and rabbits to squirrels and terrapins and fawns. And everything in between. My favorites have been the baby deer that we’ve helped to get back on their feet and then released back into our local woods and hillsides. It always is good to have a sense of humor when dealing with animals. Thus the names we gave our deer....Willie and Nel- lie; Half Pint, Mary and Al- bert. And of course...Bam- bi. Our two better known ones....Jake and Smoky were really tame and friend- ly with everyone. They loved to beg and receive Reeces’s Cups, apples and bananas or anything sweet Coming in a close second to the beautiful little fawns have been the Cocker Span- iel and Chihuahua dogs that we had for years. Talk about smart dogs! But the strangest and possibly most loved and intelligent ani- mal we had was a tiny little newborn white pig named Arnold. I believe since we raised him with a little chi- huahua dog....he actually thought HE was a dog too! Over the years our fam- ily has accumulated many good stories to tell about our animals we’ve had. I am convinced that they understood English. They just couldn’t speak it (We even had a donkey named Roscoe, but if his speak- ing would be anything like his actions, I don’t think anyone would want to hear What he’d say!) We loved all these crit- ters and if they could talk like we do, they would tell us more than when the rain had stopped, or how happy they were when the sun came out! Do you have animals that you love? Do you wish they could speak English too? Or are you content with an occasional “Arf! Arfl”, “Meow! Meowl”, or “Oink! Oink”? ASK a Medicare EXIIGI‘I: What is Will] all these Medicare commercials? Dear Medicare Expert I have seen a lot of commer- cials advertising Medicare Advantage plans that offer a ton of extra benefits like paying my $148.50 Part B premium, vision and den- tal coverage, or transpor- tation and gym benefits. It seems too good to be true, is it? Menifee Housing Associates Section 8 I: ased on 30% of income. Located at 36 Motley Ct.

Private insurance companies contract with Medicare to offer your health coverage. These Medicare Advantage plans usually include prescrip- tion drug coverage. These plans can offer extra bene- fits not offered by Original Medicare. However, very few Medicare Advantage plans in the state of-Ken- tucky actually pay for your Part B premium. Chances are, you will not find a plan to offer this help in your county. It is also impor- tant to understand that if a plan offers dental, vision, hearing, or transporta- tion benefits, the coverage ist Small mall sun Illlll cordless Mon-Fri 7:30am-5M; Sat 8am-12pm; Closed Sun.

Pricing as low as $1 per ft! will be very limited. It is important to speak with a Medicare SHIP Counselor before changing your cov- erage. Certain types of Medicare coverage will not work together. For ex- ample, enrolling in a Medi- care Advantage plan if you have a Medicare Supple- ment Plan (also called Me- digap) can cause a number of problems. If you are enrolled in a Medicare Ad- vantage plan, you will need to use doctors, hospitals, and other providers who are in the plan’s network and service area to save the most money. If you do not follow these rules, you may have limited, to no coverage for your medi- cal services. Many of the TV. advertisements about Medicare Advantage plans or “free benefits” do not mention these important restrictions. Medicare has stated that they intend to work on fighting this mis- information. If you are interested in knowing what benefits are available to you, reach out to your local Medicare SHIP Program. The Medi- care SHIP Program can help you see if you qualify for the Medicare Savings Program, which pays your Part B premium, or Extra Help, which can reduce your expenses for pre- scription drug coverage, along with other money- saving benefits.
