                                          Gold & Coins-Seller Beware!
                                                   by Jerry Carsman

Recently, a new client sold me some U.S. twenty dollar gold coins. I paid $1300.00 each for them; a fair market price at that time.
The client was “convinced” he should approach one of the “HOTEL FOR THE DAY” advertisers to compare offers. I suggested that
he give it a try with one of his twenty dollar gold coins.

Two days later he called me to report that the “Road Show” buyers offered $600.00 for his coin.

In an article published in the Sacramento Bee, dated July 24, 2010, it was reported that gold buying companies, operating out of
hotels in Texas, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi, were investigated by “The Examiner,” a newspaper in Beaumont,
Texas. It was discovered that in some cases, the money offered was one-fourth or less than the actual value.

How can you, the seller, get the best offer? Here are some recommendations:
   • Do business locally. Merchants in your neighborhood usually want to please
     you. Know your dealer!
   • Shop around and compare offers.
   • On coins especially, look for a professional numismatist (coin dealer) who
      subscribes to proper ethics of doing business.
   • Code of ethics organizations that regulate the hobby/profession are:
            1. American Numismatic Association (ANA)
            2. National Silver Dollar Roundtable (NSDR)
            3. Professional Numismatic Guild (PNG)

                                                              So many things can point toward an individual with spectacular
                                                             qualities or achievements. Not many of us know many people
                                                            that qualify for this distinctive description, but, nonetheless, there
                                                           are those who walk among us. Take for example two of golf’s oldest
                                                          competitors; 100-year-old Roger Gentilhomme of Falmouth, MA and
                                                         95-year-old Charles Young of Mc Call, ID, yet there are many more who
                                                        accomplish much in their “golden” years.

                                                       Paul Leonard Newman (January 26, 1925 – September 26, 2008) was a well-
                                                      known American actor, film director, entrepreneur, humanitarian, and auto
                                                     racing enthusiast. He won numerous awards, including an Academy Award
                                                   for best actor for his performance in the 1986 Martin Scorsese film The Color
                                                  of Money and eight other nominations, three Golden Globe Awards, a BAFTA
                                                Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Cannes Film Festival Award, an Emmy
                                               award, and many honorary awards. He also won several national championships
                                              as a driver in Sports Car Club of America road racing, and his race teams won several
                                             championships in open wheel IndyCar racing.

                                          Newman was a co-founder of Newman's Own, a food company from which Newman
                                         donated all post-tax profits and royalties to charity. As of October 2008, these donations
                                        had exceeded US $280 million.

                                       Newman announced that he would entirely retire from acting on May 25, 2007. He
                                      stated that he did not feel he could continue acting at the level he wanted to. "You start
                                    to lose your memory, you start to lose your confidence, you start to lose your invention. So
                                   I think that's pretty much a closed book for me." Paul Leonard Newman was 85 years old.

    W      e had a terrific July “High Five” Scholarship Tournament on July 16th. The event
           raised $5500, and will be a big help to our First Tee chapter. I am delighted
    to report that your contributions will generate about six or seven scholarship
    awards next June. Many, many thanks to the residents who helped and
    participated in the event. And a special thanks to the organizations that
    provided donations that put us over the top. Please give your thank
    you to Fred and Rita Jackson of Edward Jones, our local branches
    of Union Bank and Ameriprise. They joined our SCR residents
    in helping First Tee grow better leaders for tomorrow.

    By the way, we also had terrific support from the Bill Hale
    Memorial tournament players when they went to Carson City
    in June. Thanks to the leadership of Jim and Jane Monahan
    several golf clubs donated prizes for a raffle that allowed
    them to raise $1000.

    In the tournament, everyone (kids and residents) was a
    winner and can be proud of their help. The nice part is, you
    meet the kids and realize that we residents really are “doing
    the right thing”.

    cannot play - sorry. However, as usual, we will need your help. Please volunteer
    a few hours of your time to support this important event. You will have a great

Patti began her education in nursing. She also became a massage therapist, a personal trainer as well as owning a bicycle shop with
her husband. In 1995 she was offered the position of the first Fitness Director here at SCR and began in November, 1995. She thinks
it was one of the best decisions she ever made with plenty of opportunities, great people and good times. Before the fitness center
was completed they rented a room and held exercise classes at a gym in old town Roseville and water classes at the Woodcreek
Oaks High pool. After being at SCR for 4 years, she transferred to start up the fitness program at SC Lincoln Hills. That job required
management work only and Patti says, “that’s one way to starve a fitness instructor, stick ’em in an office.” So after 1½ years she
resigned and returned to being a Fitness Instructor. She has been with SCR for 13 years.

      using the 3-part registration form. refunds are given only if an activity is cancelled.

      rsvp datEs: Each event indicates an RSVP date and in some cases may be as much as three
      weeks prior to the actual event, should tickets need to be purchased. The popularity of any trip
      means it may fill long before the RSVP date, so please plan accordingly.

      each trip description. We do leave on time, so please plan your arrival time at the Lodge accordingly.

      is the procedure which has been followed from our very first bus trip.

      you refrain from wearing perfume, cologne and scented bath & body products when attending
      concerts or participating in day or overnight trips. Your consideration to this request is appreciated.
