Common Sense Needed to Create Jobs, Get
Economy Moving
    Getting our economy back on track remains my highest priority. Lowering energy
prices and making sure small businesses and families have access to bank loans are
key ingredients for economic recovery.
    Lowering Energy Prices - Since January, the House of Representatives has passed
four major pieces of legislation aimed at lowering the price of gas at the pump. One of
these bills, The Jobs and Energy Permitting Act (H.R. 2021) eliminates the needless
delays in permitting that have stalled energy development in Alaska.
    H.R. 2021 requires the EPA to make an up or down decision on drilling permits                Replacement systems up to
within six months of the request. Any appeals will be directed to the D.C. Circuit
Court for a speedy resolution. A rational and timely process for developing American

from someone other than the borrower. Common sense says if the loan payments are
being made then the bank should be able to consider the loan in good standing and
regulators should not penalize community banks for working with the borrower. My
bill, the Common Sense Economic Recovery Act, would make sure that this fair and
reasonable approach to loans is actually so we can end the paralysis federal regula-
tors have been imposing on our economy.
    Small businesses have historically created the bulk of the new jobs in America.

    The HOA is still working on a web site and I still hope to get it up and running
soon. In the meantime I would like to inform residents that there is a web site where
homeowners and residents can go to find out information about what is going on in
the Bay. That site is WWW. SayBarefootBay.com it is hosted by Sue Woodard and
it is refreshing to see a resident taking the time and effort to keep us all informed.
Thanks Sue.

                            ALL OR NOTHING AT ALL
    Recently I have called different companies to inspect my home for any problems
that might exist. Here are some of the results:
    Air Conditioner
    First Opinion: You need a new one. This can go at any minute.                             FOR FAST SERVICE...
    Second Opinion: Your air conditioner is good for another year or two.

                                                                                              call

    Offer of free inspection. Will not do inspection if I don’t sign a contract for yearly
treatments. I offered to pay for the inspection but was refused.
    Tie Downs
    I asked to have my tie downs inspected, repaired or replaced as needed. I received
                                                                                                                    AIR CONDITIONING

constant barrage of stupidity, but feel that SOMEONE must speak up.
    I was at the meeting on Friday, and can only say thank God that our attorney spoke
up and put a stop to what was going on. I don’t always agree with his legal leadership,
but respect his attention to the needs of this community. What a resident tried to do
was create a public trial of one of our managers. There can be no justification for that
type of action, no matter what the problem is. It is the job of the Community Manager
to address these concerns, and what I heard from the Chair is that is being done.
    I’m not sure what has caused the problems that seem to have surfaced with the man-
agers, but what I am sure of is that the behavior that I saw on Friday doesn’t accomplish
anything except to create more trouble. I can only assume that was the goal. As part
time resident she should either get the whole picture, or sit down and shut up.

    Q - I am getting older, and only work part-time because of health reasons. Can you
tell me a little bit about how the government’s Disability Program works?
    A – The Federal Disability Benefits Program was created to provide some finan-
cial assistance to eligible candidates deemed to be qualified. Eligibility determination
for disability benefits candidates is governed by the Social Security Administration
(SSA). Candidates applying for disability benefits eligibility must provide the SSA
with the following information and data:
    - Social Security Number and Birth Certificate
    - List of all medications being taken, or taken in the past
    - List of all medical treatment providers and treatment facilities visited
    - Information about all past employment and earnings declared for tax purposes
    The TEST to determination disability benefits eligibility is simply that the candidate
must be determined by the Social Security Administration to be unable to perform
“substantial work” because of current existing health problems.
    If health problems are temporary and expected to improve in the coming year,
or if health problems are mild and still allow for “substantial” employment, then the
candidate may not be eligible for disability benefits. The SSA may pay for evaluation
of the candidate by a doctor. Improved health, or financial circumstances, may cancel
disability benefits eligibility.
    Disability benefits eligibility IS the proverbial “Federal Case”, so SSA eligibility
determinations typically take 3 to 6 months. This is because to determine eligibil-
ity for disability benefits, the SSA looks at all the candidate’s past health treatment
records, along with all past occupations and lifetime earnings which were declared
for taxation purposes.
    Failure by the candidate to provide full documentation and fully disclose all req-
uisite information only further delays the eligibility application process. Authorization
for SSA access to this personal and confidential information must be granted to the
SSA as part of the disability benefits application process.
    Disability benefits candidates may work to some degree without negatively impact-
ing their eligibility, but must not earn more than $ 980 per month. Once determined
to be eligible for SSA disability benefits, the candidate may also be eligible for certain
medical benefits on a case-by-case basis.
    There are two types of disability benefits programs – SSDI and SSI. Both programs
assist eligible candidates, but in different ways. The same “substantial inability to
work” benefits eligibility test is used by both programs.
    The “SSDI Program” pays the eligible candidate disability benefits determined by
the candidate’s lifetime earnings declared for tax purposes. The amount of disability
benefits paid out by SSA is based on the eligible candidate’s past work history. How
much of those lifetime earnings were declared for tax purposes is what counts. So
the unlawful but popular practice of “working off the books” can come back to bite
regarding calculation of disability benefits under the SSDI Program.
    The “SSI Program” pays the eligible candidate disability benefits based on need.
Household incomes are given consideration, and are routinely checked out by the SSA.
    All disability benefits decisions made by the SSA are communicated in writing by
mail. A benefits candidate determined to be ineligible, and thus denied disability ben-
efits, has a right to seek an SSA review of the candidate’s denied application within
60 days of the date of the denial letter sent by the SSA. If the eligibility application
continues to be denied by the SSA, the denied candidate may attempt to obtain dis-
ability benefits by asking for judicial review of the SSA benefits denial within 60 days
of the 2nd SSA denial of disability benefits eligibility.
    It is very important to file any and all appeals on time. If the denied candidate waits
longer than 60 days past the date of the 2nd denial, the disability benefits applica-
tion process must be started all over again. Possible benefits may be lost. Each case
turns on its own facts and circumstances.

sel to learn more about your rights and

Normandy – Past and Present
    In past articles on travel in France, we discussed a visit to Paris and to the south
of France, Provence and the Riviera. This time we visit an area of France that most
Americans recognize at once, Normandy, because that is where our armed forces
landed in World War II to liberate France from German occupation. If you plan to
visit Paris, then to continue on to Normandy is an easy and practical route to follow.
    First, a word about the name “Norman.” It actually means “North Man.” In about
the Fourth and Fifth Centuries (400-500 A.D.) the Vikings, warriors from the north
lands, sailed south to plunder, rob and rape along the coastline of present day France.
In the end some settled into northern France, hence the name Normandy, land of the
North Men. Further history of this land includes just one war after another with only
short intervals of peace. It was here where the English and French fought out the
Hundred Year War. Here was where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake in Rowen, a
major Normandy city, as she had been declared a Helvetic and a witch by the Roman
Catholic Church. Later, of course, the Church changed its mind and declared her a
saint, which shows how things can change.
    Rowen can be easily reached by train from Paris or by bus if you prefer. If you are
considering renting or leasing an automobile to drive in France, be aware it can be
both expensive and frustrating. Toll roads are common, gasoline can cost $7.00 a
gallon, insurance is also costly and parking can easily cost you $20.00 a day. Check
your schedule carefully and you may find that what you wish to visit in Normandy
can be reached by using public transportation, which also gives you a far greater
opportunity to meet with the local people. After all, did you not come to France to
meet with the French people? The city of Rowen has been around for well over 20
centuries, going back in time to even before it was a Roman Empire regional capital.
Unfortunately, it was a prime target for American Air Force Bombers during the War,
but the ancient city center was spared. It has its own Notre Dame Cathedral, a prime
example of Gothic design. In this city there are three excellent museums close to
each other, easy to visit. You can cover all these easily in one day.
    From here you can reach Bayeux, a city which is just six miles from the D-Day
beaches of World War II. This is where you can board a bus to tour those beaches.
There are over 70 miles of Atlantic coastline north of Bayeux filled with museums,
cemeteries and battlefield scenery. You can select from a number of companies
offering you excursions to view it all…or relax in comfortable vans getting on and off
at your pleasure. Be sure to get all your information on facilities well in advance and
study it carefully allowing you to select your path and directions so you cover exactly
what you wish to see.
    This might be the right time to consult a qualified travel agent who specializes in
this area. While in Normandy, a not to be missed event is a visit to Mount St. Michel, a
monastery on its own island now connected to the mainland by a two-mile causeway.
Prior to 1870 you could only reach the monastery by boat. The story about Mount
St. Michel begins in about the Fifth Century (500A.D.) when a group of Christian
monks, holymen and hermits sought out a place where they could be protected from
others by a raging sea, quick sands and a terrible tide water that rushed in and out                                                                     Your Local Abbey Dealer
at a shocking speed to drown any attackers. Their desire was to live solely by their                                                                      Mon.- Fri. 9-5 • Sat. 10-3
own efforts spending their lives in prayers and devotions. Those tides could change
the water levels by as much as 50 feet twice every 24 hours. Today there is a small
village on the island below the heavily fortified and walled in abbey and church. As
you would expect, the village is little more than a touristy jumble of shops selling
overpriced souvenirs, candles and medallions and little else.
    The real and remarkable story here is the abbey. Around the year 700 A.D. the
legend explains that the local Catholic Bishop had a vision in which the Archangel St.
Michel spoke to him. The Angel told him to build a new and magnificent church on                                                             …and so is interest in our communities. As
the island. There had been an earlier church centuries before, probably begun by the                                                         summer heats up, friends and neighbors are
holy men, but once the Bishop got the message and the French Royal Family became                                                             focusing on beach days, backyard barbecues,
involved, the present buildings were erected. Unquestionably, they are magnificent                                                           vacations, and even new addresses!
and an extraordinary sight to see. A visit to St. Michael can easily be combined with
your entire trip through Normandy including the D-Day beaches in a four-day period.
You will find this area filled with ancient history, modern war memories, all against a
very unique and colorful background.

Flu Season is Approaching….Do You Know
What’s Changed?
    Persons aged sixty-five years or older are at greater risk for hospitalization and
death from seasonal influenza than those in other age groups. According to CDC
(U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), getting a flu vaccination is the first
and most important step in protecting yourself against the flu.
    Q. What is the flu?
    A. The flu, more scientifically known as influenza, is a highly contagious respira-
tory infection caused by influenza viruses. The influenza virus usually enters the body
through mucus membranes in the mouth, nose, or eyes.
    Q. Who is at risk?
    A. Older adults, young children, and people with certain health conditions are at
higher risk for serious flu complications. On average annually in the United States, 5%
to 20% of the population gets the flu; over 200,000 people are hospitalized from flu
complications; and about 24,000 people die from the flu-related causes.
    Q. How can I prevent getting the flu?
    A. The best way to prevent or lessen the severity of the flu is to get a flu shot each
year. Contrary to common belief, you cannot get the flu from a seasonal flu shot. In
addition, good preventative health habits, such as washing your hands and covering
your sneezes can help. Although there are no guarantees, you’ll have peace of mind
knowing you’re doing all you can to keep yourself and your family flu-free.
    Q. Is there a new type of vaccine available?
    A. Yes, a “High-Dose” influenza vaccine is available and is designed specifically
for people sixty-five years and older.
    Q. What is the difference between the High-Dose influenza vaccine and the regular
influenza vaccine?
    A. The High-Dose and regular dosage are both injectable influenza vaccines,
made up of the three flu strains most likely to cause illness for a particular flu season,
to protect people from influenza. High-Dose vaccines contain four times the amount
of antigen (the part of the vaccine that prompts the body to make antibody) contained
in regular flu shots. The additional antigen is intended to create a stronger immune
response (more antibody) in the person getting the vaccine.
    Q. Why is a higher dose vaccine available for adults sixty-five and older?
    A. Human immune defenses become weaker with age, which places older people
at greater risk of severe illness from influenza. Also, aging decreases the body’s abil-
ity to elicit a good immune response after influenza vaccination. A higher dose of
antigen in the vaccine is intended to give older people a better immune response and
therefore better protection against flu.
    Q. Does the higher dose vaccine produce a better immune response in adults 65
years and older?
    A. Data from clinical trials comparing the regular vaccine to the High-Dose vaccine
among persons age sixty-five years or older indicate that a stronger immune response
(i.e. higher antibody levels) occurs after vaccination with High-Dose. Studies are cur-
rently underway to determine whether or not a stronger immune response will lead to a
decrease in influenza.
    Q. Is the High-Dose vaccine safe?
    A. Yes. The High-Dose vaccine is safe and approved by the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA). The side effects from the High-Dose vaccine are similar to
that of regular flu vaccine. The most common side effects experienced were mild and
temporary and included pain, redness, and swelling at the injection site and head-
ache, muscle aches, and slight fever. Most people have minimal or no side effects
after receiving the High-Dose vaccine.
    Q. Who should not be vaccinated?
    A. There are some people who should not get a flu vaccine without first consulting
a physician. These include:
    • People who have a severe allergy to chicken eggs.
    • People who have had a severe reaction to an influenza vaccination.
    • People who developed Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) within 6 weeks of getting
an influenza vaccine.
    • Children less than 6 months of age (influenza vaccine is not approved for this age group).
    • People who have a moderate-to-severe illness with a fever (they should wait until
they recover to get vaccinated).
