We Service What We Sell
By Skeet Wolters 
Call it serendipity,coincidence or luck; here isproof we live in a small world.While vacationing in Newport,Road Island I enjoyed adelicious cup of coffee inthe hotel lobby, and after asecond cup, I was hooked.The hostess told me that itwas made by Newport CoffeeTraders and she graciouslysent me home with severalpackages. Google helpedme find the address to ordermy own supply, and low andbehold, I was very surprised tolearn it was a Coldwater, Ohioaddress! That is right, ourown Intercontinental Coffeeon North Seventh Street inColdwater. I now purchasemy favorite Cliff Walk, a darkroast that satisfies my morningcoffee obsession, right here athome.I am greeted at the doorwith a warm welcome eventhough I only purchase onebox of 24 packages at a time,guaranteeing that I will alwayshave the freshest of coffee.Each package makes 8-10cups of my morning Joe.Local resident, DaleDroesch started the companyin 1969 as a family businessin his Walnut Street garagebefore moving to the SeventhStreet address. They have beenserving the coffee industryfor the last 40 years withthe continuing goal of GreatService and Quality Products.His son, Darrin Droesch, tookover the day-to-day operationsof the business in 1999. Daleis now retired but still checksin to see how things are goingand visits with the boys. Thecompany provides work foraround 12 employees includingthree of the Droesch sons.Over the years, they havegrown into more than justOffice Coffee. They offercappuccino, single cup, watercoolers and filters, specialtycoffees and a full line of AlliedProducts. As they grew, theystrived to know their customersand their goal is still to givethem the best service possiblewith no long-term contracts.Mr. Droesch en-thusiastically talks aboutstarting his business and thecommitment to hard workthat he, his wife, Dolores,and their family put into theirentrepreneur labors. I callthis an example of the highwork ethic of Mercer Countyresidents. Mr. Droesch relatedto me a quote he enjoys and I,the coffee lover, would like toagree, “Coffee drinkers makebetter thinkers.”

John M. Yoder, Financial Advisor 
When you add a child to your family, either through birth or adoption, it’s obviously an exciting and joyfultime in your life — and it’s also a busy one, as you deal with all the challenges and commitments faced by
all parents. However, hectic as your life may be, you’ll still need to think about making some key nancial
arrangements to accommodate your new child.Here are some suggestions to consider:* Get a Social Security number. You’ll want to obtain a Social Security number for your child as soon aspossible.* Speak with a tax advisor. If you’re adopting a child, you might be eligible for federal income tax credits.* Build an emergency fund. Obviously, a new child may mean a variety of new expenses. If you aren’tprepared for these costs, many of which may crop up suddenly, you might be forced to dip into your long-term investments. Such a move could slow your progress toward your important goals, such as a comfortableretirement. To avoid this potential problem, try to build an emergency fund containing six months’ worth of livingexpenses. Put the money in a liquid account so you can access it quickly and without penalty.* Research options for a special needs child. If you have a special needs child, you may want to explore
any available government benets and consider speaking with an
attorney about your legal options.
* Consider disability insurance. You may want to purchase disability insurance, or review your currentpolicy, to ensure your family’s needs are covered should you become ill or disabled and cannot work for awhile.* Review your life insurance. It’s essential that you maintain adequate life insurance to cover your family’s
future nancial needs, including education costs. While your employer may offer you a group policy, it mightnot be sufcient to keep up with your growing family. There’s no one “formula” for determining the appropriateamount of life insurance, but a professional nancial advisor can review your family situation and recommend
suitable coverage.* Save for college. Given the high costs of higher education, it’s never too soon to start putting awaymoney for college. You may want to consider a tax-advantaged account, such as a 529 plan, which offers high
contribution limits and provides you with the exibility to switch beneciaries, if necessary.* Review/add beneciary designations. You may want to change or add beneciaries to your IRA, 401(k),
life insurance, annuities and other accounts.
* Explore a custodial account. You might want to consider a custodial account, such as an UGMA or UTMA, that allows you to transfer assets for the benet of a child under 21. (Consult with your tax and legaladvisors before making this move.)
Of course, you don’t have to take care of all these items at once. But by methodically working your way
through this list, you will eventually adjust your overall nancial strategy to include your new child — which
means you’ll be helping your growing family make progress toward its important goals.
