Fort Fest this weekend

news@delphosherald.com
FORT JENNINGS The annual
Fort Fest this Friday, Saturday and
Sunday in Fort Jennings will offer
an opportunity for area residents to
celebrate the rich military history

that is part of the community.


The three-day event will include
military displays, military reenactments, a military-employer supportive event, and live music. The
official opening ceremony is 4 p.m.
Friday with a Huey 369.
See FEST, page 3

DELPHOS Delphos will see the


addition of three full-time firefighters to its
department for at least the next two years.
City council on Monday voted unanimously
to accept the Staffing and Adequate Fire
and Emergency Response Grant totaling
$336,840.
The SAFER Grant funds 100 percent
of the cost for three full-time firefighters,
including wages and benefits for two years;
and money to fully train six part-paid firefighters to a Level 1 Firefighter.
Council was concerned with what happens after the two years and if the city could
no longer afford to keep the new firefighters.
In exchange for their support of accepting the grant, the city received several concessions from Firefighter Local 686 members,
Safety Service Director Shane Coleman said
Monday. The firefighters are working with
us because they know the citys budget is

$1.00

uncertain.
Firefighters agreed to not file a grievance
if the new firefighters had to be laid off in
2017; intermittent firefighters will fill in for
all absences; a three-tiered pay structures
will be used for all new employees with new
firefighters not reaching full pay until theyve
worked for city for three years; and an extension on the fire contract with the city through
2017 with a wage opener in 2017.
This just shows that the firefighters
are truly committed to making this work,
Coleman said.
Firefighter Local 686 Representative
Brandon Webb said at the Aug. 3 meeting,
the union gives its full support to accepting
the SAFER Grant, noting decreased response
time and more training are both positive outcomes for everyone.
Council also heard second reading on the
Community Reinvestment Area ordinance,
declaring the entire city as eligible for incentive measures to assist and encourage development. Council will hear the measure read
in its entirety at the Aug. 17 meeting.

The frogs in the frog-jumping contest were less than enthusiastic. (DHI Media/Steven Coburn-Griffis)

making the rounds well into the
afternoon.
The Hallelujah Saints Band
filled Garfield Park with music in
the afternoon with the soft whack

of corn hole bags keeping the beat.

sgriffis@delphosherald.com
As is increasingly the case in smaller
municipalities, this Novembers elections
at least when it comes to filling a position are less about choosing a candidate
than they are about finding one.
In the City of Delphos, incumbent
Mayor Michael Gallmeier is slated to run
unopposed, as is the citys incumbent audi-

tor, Thomas L. Jettinghoff. The citys law


director, Andrew Knueve, appointed to fill
out the term abdicated by Clayton Osting,
will also run unopposed, seeking to gain
by popular vote what was awarded to him
last April. On council, two men, Joshua P.
Gillespie and Tom R. Grothous, are running
for three vacant Council-At-Large positions, while both Third and Fourth Ward
open seats, as well as the Council President
position, remain uncontested with no candidates filing for those positions. For the

Delphos City Schools Board of Education,


Joseph M. Rode has filed for one of two
open seats.
In Spencerville, incumbents PJ Johnson,
mayor, and Dawn R. Bailey, clerk-treasurer,
are slated to run unopposed. Write-in candidate Gregory Hover is the only resident
running for one of two open seats on village
council.
Fort Jennings incumbent mayor, James
D. Smith, will run unopposed. Two open
council seats, however, are contested by

three candidates: Greg Brown, Jeff Swick


and Cory J. Trenkamp.
In Ottoville, incumbent Mayor Ronald
L. Miller will run unopposed, as will
Randolph J. Altenburger and Joseph A.
Moreno for the two council seats they
already sit. On the villages Board of
Trustees of Public Affairs, Philip Hilvers
and Daniel Honigford run uncontested for
their two seats.

Witness finds
hit-skip driver

DHi Media staff reports


DELPHOS A witness
was instrumental in the apprehension of a hit-skip driver.
At 2:30 p.m. Thursday,
an unknown driver struck a
vehicle driven westbound on
East Fifth Street near the Elida
Road intersection by Ronald
Bilimek, 50. According to
Bilimek, the then unknown
driver of a dark-colored pick
up truck was eastbound on
East Fifth Street, crossed over
the center line and sideswiped
his car. The vehicle then proceeded to continue east on
East Fifth Street and headed
out of the city.
Scott Hamilton of Landeck
saw the hit-skip accident.
Hamilton told police he followed the driver, 36-yearold Adam Weber, to German
Road, where Weber lost control of his vehicle and caused
damage to the lawn of Charles
Wannemacher who resides at
8100 German Road.
Other witnesses confirmed
the events.
Both vehicles were towed
from the scene of the accidents.
No injuries were reported.

Local/State
Delphos School Board
accepts improvement bid
BY STEVEN
COBURN-GRIFFIS
DHI Media Staff Writer
sgriffis@delphosherald.com
DELPHOS With
just three weeks remaining before the start of the
2015-16 school year, the
Delphos City Schools Board
of Education met Monday
evening to discuss progress
made over the summer.
Superintendent Kevin
Wolfe and Treasurer Brad
Rostorfer presented the
board with bids for the renovation of restrooms in the
districts middle school. The
board approved a bid from
Mullenkamp Construction
in the amount of $130,628
for the completion of the
project.
Wolfe further advised
the board that improvement efforts at Franklin
Elementary were completed. Lee Construction was
retained to repair cracks
in the school and to caulk
joints and seal the brick in
the front of the building
to prevent corrosion due to
moisture.
Improvements to the high

school were also discussed.


Wolfe reported that an initial estimate on the removal
and replacement of 97 existing windows at the high
school ranges from between
$900 and $1,200 per window. The board also discussed the replacement of
the schools two east doors.
Rostorfer and Wolfe are
awaiting more concrete estimates on replacement costs.
Were moving forward,
Wolfe commented.
Wolfe also officially advised the board that
the State of Ohio has discontinued Partnership for
Assessment of Readiness
for College and Careers
(PARCC) testing. The multistate cooperative effort
received a dismal reception
in Ohio, where teachers and
administrators bemoaned
the complexity and time-intensive nature of the exams.
Its a good thing, Wolfe
said. There was too much
time dedicated to PARCC
and that was the biggest
argument that legislators
were hearing. When youre
spending that much time
preparing for a test, what

Other ongoing exhibits that will start on
Friday include an Aircraft 803/Warrior II
Display, a Hometown Heroes Exhibit and

A large part of this event is the celebration of the rich military history of our town
with educational and unique displays, stated Dr. Wesley Klir, Fort Fest Co-Chairman.
As part of these displays, the Fort Jennings
Historical Society assembles a temporary
military museum housed in the refurbished
Jennings Memorial Hall. For one weekend

licensed appraiser with 56 years of experience in the business, and will be providing
free appraisals from 9:30 a.m. to noon
during the Craft Show on Saturday at Fort
Fest. Bring your items to the main tent on
Water Street and find out the value and
history of some of the things youve been
collecting.
Then you can check out the craft and
product items in the main tent on Saturday
until 3:30 p.m. For any last-minute vendors
who would like a space at the Craft Show, a
couple of tables remain and can be reserved

camp is open to children from the Putnam
County Area. The check-in begins at 8:15
a.m. in the Fort Jennings Park.
This is a large town history experience
with a small town price, said Dr. Klir.
Through Camp 1812, children will learn
about period music, arts, crafts and the life
of a militia soldier. Walk-in registrations
will be taken. The cost is $15.
On Sunday, there will be a Hometown
Heroes exhibit, Native Song program and a
tomahawk throwing contest.

Ballot
(Continued from page 1)
The Village of Elida has
proven the exception to the
candidate drought in this
years local elections, putting
forward two contested positions. Incumbent Mayor Kim
M. Hardy is challenged by
Claude R. Paxton, a current
member of the Elida Village
Council. As for council, two
open seats are contested by
incumbents John Dillon and
Larry J. Flick and newcomer Jon Toby Jenkins. On the
Elida School Board, Patrick
J. Schymanski and Brenda
N. Stocker have filed for two
open seats.
In Marion Township,
Robert C. Kimmet runs unopposed for the position of fiscal officer, while Jerry Gilden
likewise runs unopposed for a
trustee seat.
Dean Bowersock will run
uncontested for a trustee seat
in Washington Township,
while no valid candidate has
yet filed for the townships
open fiscal officer position.
Two open seats for members of the Allen County
Educational Service Center
remain uncontested with just

two candidates: Ann Best and


Walter Paxton. An unexpired
member term on the board
has yet to receive a filing
from a valid candidate.
In Putnam County, no candidates have filed for two
open member seats at the
Educational Service Center.
Three Allen Countywide issues face voters. The
Mental Health and Recovery

renewal. Also seeking a
renewal of its 5-year, .5-mill

Children Services, while
Senior Citizens Services
seeks a five-year .5-mill
renewal and a .5-mill increase
of its tax levy providing or

services or facilities for the
elderly citizens of Allen
County. In Van Wert County,
Vantage Career Center seeks
a .7-mill renewal of its permanent improvements levy.
Also Van Wert County-wide,
the Ohio State University
Extension has proposed a
renewal and decrease of .05mill from its levy.

If only those HOF


walls could talk
Every time there is a Pro Football Hall of Fame induction
ceremony, it adds to the rich tradition of the new National
Pastime.
I dont believe anyone is really unworthy of being there that
is already enshrined.
The game itself has changed so much and what it represents, the environment, what it means to the nation and
quite frankly the world and everything that professional
football has become has changed with it.
I know there are some bloggers and pundits and such that
try to make a case for this guy or that owner or that player
should in a sense be kicked out and more deserving
guys take their place.
I think we can all see some players that we wonder why
they are not in.
That discussion is great fodder for an argument over a beer
or two or three or five, etc. but not for the purposes of
this column of mine.
No matter who it is and I can think of more than a few
guys that made it on teams I despise, loathe, hate, find utterly
repulsive and some might even say I dont like! I think they
have a story to tell that can be quite fascinating.
I forget of what I thought about them when they were playing and realize this is all about giving them their proper respect
for playing a game I love and doing it very well.
Those stories all add something to the greatness of the game
but also to the mortality of the game, the humanity.
After all, Hall-of-Famers are considered immortals, the
all-time, all-time best in whatever sport you are talking about.
I think we all can agree that the games we watch on the
tube and listen to on the radio have changed dramatically
over the course of the
20th and now 21st
Jim Metcalfe
century.
The game of football has evolved
some might argue
devolved
but
I
leave that for another time from a
knock-down, physical, mano-y-mano,
defense-first/last/and
always battle into a pass-happy Air Coryell attacking game.
Im old enough to remember the Purple People Eaters (yes,
Mr. Mike Wrasman, you are not dreaming!), the Steel Curtain,
the Doomsday Defense, the Fearsome Foursome, the Killer Bs
and the Orange Crush, to name a few.

Klausing counting on big-time


experience for Blue Jay golfers
BY JIM METCALFE
DHI Media Sports Editor
jmetcalfe@delphosherald.com

DELPHOS St. Johns


golf coach John Klausing has
taken his lumps as the Blue
Jays head man in his four
season.
He has a 22-27 mark,
including 4-6 in the Midwest
Athletic Conference hast fall.
The good thing about that
was there were no seniors on
the roster, so he lost no one to
graduation.
He expects last years
youngsters to make a major
leap forward this year
especially against MAC
teams as they did from the
year before that.

RAABE

He will do so with a bevy of


returnees, including Division
III District-qualifying junior
Derek Klausing.
Seven more lettered
either starting or providing needed depth: Brandon
Slate (senior), Austin Lucas
(junior), Robbie Buescher
(sophomore), Ryan Dickman
(junior), Steve Leathers
(junior), Matt Dickrede
(sophomore) and Elliott
Courtney (junior).
We are still a young team
with only one senior (Slate).
We are returning all of our
starters and we should be
more competive than last
year, Klausing explained.
We are going to reach for
contention in the MAC and

advancing to the districts/


regionals this year. Last year
we finished 6th out of 14
in the sectionals. With all
starters returning and only
falling 25 strokes last year
we should give it a great run.
Our goal is to have two of our
players finish first team in the
MAC and two on the second
team.
He is also counting on a
pair of particularly-promising newcomers in freshman
Adam Gerker and classmate
Grant Csukker.
We have to work on the
short game and course management. We as a team have
to learn from our experiences last year and improve as
much as we did in 2014 sea-

son, he continued. In 2014,


our team score improved over
30 strokes from the beginning of the season to the end.
If we achieve this in 2015, we
will have a very competitive
season.
League aspirations are
to finish in the top three in
the MAC . The teams this
year to look out for are
Minster, Versailles and Fort
Recovery.
Sophomore
Mitchel
Kahny, freshman Emma
Schafer
and
freshman
Cassidy Schaffer finish out
the roster.

How many of those guys

his long-time friend and QB,

The Next Generation


Barts Big Brain Turns Blue

A history of potential events as chronicled by Steven Coburn-Griffis


Chapter Five
Friday, March 16, 2018
Bart Butterman gave the glass of bluegreen goo one final swirl and then put it down
beside the fountain. He peeled off the long
rubber gloves and laid them down beside the
glass.
So whats so terrible about a cyanobacterial bloom or some other type of toxic algal
bloom? Bart Butterman asked. Flowers
bloom and theyre beautiful and smell wonderful. He paused, tapped the side of his
face with his forefinger and then said, Well,
actually, some flowers smell like rotting meat,
but thats a different story for a different day.
On his Smartt tie, the words, Keep to
the subject, Bart! appeared and then slowly
faded. Bart Butterman looked down, smiled
sheepishly and shrugged his shoulders.
Whats dangerous about these blooms?
Bart Butterman asked. Well, cyanobacterial
blooms create toxins, poisons that can make
animals, including people, sick and even kill
them. Some toxins affect the nervous system,
some affect respiration and some can even
damage your liver.
He looked uneasily at the fountain full of
blue-green muck behind him and took a quick
step away, putting just a little more distance
between him and all that goo.
Now, none of this is new information,
Bart Butterman said. The first time anybody
mentioned toxic blooms was in the magazine,
Nature, way back in 1858.
Bart Butterman took a few more steps away
from the fountain, putting more and more distance between him and the blue-green gunk it
held until the kids in Ms. Raczkowskis 7th
Grade Earth Sciences Class could no longer
see fountain on the rooms big Smartt screen.
So what is new? Bart Butterman asked.
First, the blooms are happening much more
frequently and in more and more bodies of
water. Second, the severity of these toxic
blooms is also on the rise. Theyre becoming
bigger, and bigger means more dangerous. As
to why this is happening well, different
people have different ideas.
Toxic blooms happen when the water is
warm and there are plenty of nutrients available, Bart Butterman said. So some people
say that climate change is partially to blame.
On Bart Buttermans patented Smartt tie
the outline of a man wearing a business suit
and carrying a briefcase appeared.
Some people say that agriculture, farming, is responsible, Bart Butterman continued, and as he spoke, the outline of the man in
the suit seemed to speak with him. They say
that rain water carries fertilizers from farm
fields into streams and rivers and the bacteria
feed on those nutrients.
The figure on Bart Buttermans Smartt tie
changed; where it once wore a suit, now it
wore an opencollared shirt and a baseball cap.
Still others say that wastewater treatment plants, those places where the sewage
from communities of people are cleaned up,
from towns and cities, are to blame, Bart
Butterman said and, just as with the outline
of the man in the suit, the outline of the man
in the ball cap on Bart Buttermans Smartt tie

seemed to say those words along with him.


And then both outlines, the outline of the
man in the suit and the outline of the man in
the ball cap, were on Bart Buttermans Smartt
tie at the very same time. And it looked to
the students in Ms. Raczkowskis 7111 Grade
Earth Sciences Class as if the outlines of the
two men were yelling at each other.
Chapter Five questions
1. Bart mentioned that some flowers smell
bad, like rotting meat. One group of plants,
called carrion flowers, do just that to attract
insects so that the insects can carry pollen
from flower to flower. What are some other
ways that pants and their flowers attract
insects and birds? How do other plants protect
themselves?
2. Harmful algal blooms, sometimes called
HABs, come in all colors all over the world.
In freshwater areas, like Lake Erie, we see
blue-green algae. Red tide is a term often
used for HABs in marine coastal areas, even
though the growth of algae is unrelated to
the tides. Warming temperatures, changes in
the way water moves, and field run-off are
thought to affect HABs. During what season
are people in Ohio most likely to see HABs?
How about people in Australia? China?
3. Why were the two men that appeared on
Barts tie yelling at each other? Look through
todays newspaper and see if there are stories
about people who are arguing about something. What are they arguing about? Does the
article mention any ways they might settle
their disagreement? Who do you agree with
and why?

Friday, March 16, 2018
Bart Butterman looked down at the outlines of the two men on his Smartt tie and then
he looked back up at Ms. Raczkowskis Earth
Sciences Class.
Debate is good, he said. It is very
important that we talk about what worries
us, about the problems that we face. That
way we can come up with solutions to those
problems.
Bart Butterman reached up and, with both
hands, covered the outlines of the two men on
his Smartt tie. And then, although nobody in
Ms. Raczkowskis Earth Sciences Class had
ever seen such a thing happen before, Bart
Butterman loosened his tie and slipped it up
and over his head.
But sometimes talk turns to blame,
Bart Butterman said. And it becomes more
important to point fingers at somebody else
than it is to fix a problem. When that happens,
we need to take a step back.
Bart Butterman reached up and loosened
the top button on his shirt.
The truth is, whats causing these toxic
blooms is everything that people have already
talked about, he said. Everything that weve
already discussed and probably more besides.
So, rather than point a finger of blame, its
time that we all work together to fix the problem.
Bart Butterman slipped both of his hands
into his pockets and bounced up onto his toes.
And we are! he said, smiling. At least
with this toxic bloom problem. The operators
at wastewater treatment plants are working with the Ohio Environmental Protection
Agency to find ways to clean up sewage better
than ever before. And there are communities,
cities and towns that are building wetland
areas that help to keep nutrients from getting
to where algae and bacteria can feed on them.
On farms all across the state, Bart
Butterman continued, farmers are installing
grass filter strips between their fields and
local streams and rivers. These filter strips
work in the same way as wetlands by helping
to keep dirt and fertilizer from washing into
rivers and streams and from there into Ohios
lakes.
Bart Butterman laughed and it was such a
happy sound that every single person in Ms.
Raczkowskis class couldnt help but laugh
along with him, including Ms. Raczkowski
herself.
Why, there is even a small town that is
working to process cow manure at one of
its old wastewater treatment plants, Bart
Butterman exclaimed. Their idea is to take
the manure and turn it into highly nutritious
dirt thats even better than fertilizer. And one
of the professors here in Bowling Green is

helping!
And thats what it takes to fix a problem
like this; Bart Butterman said, a whole lot
of different people thinking a whole lot of
different thoughts about the best way to tackle
it. And then getting together and talking their
way through it.
Bart Butterman raised both hands and
raised his eyebrows, as if to say, See there,
nothing to it. Easy Peasy.
So, here we are, he said. Not at the end
of our story by a long shot but moving in the
right direction, provided we keep working
together.
Bart Butterman raised one finger in the air
and said, Oh, and theres one more thing we
need to keep in mind.
He turned around and picked up his tie. He
held it up so that everybody could see the big
question mark that burned along the length
of it.
Ask questions, he said. Keep asking
questions and search for honest answers. You
just never know where those questions will
take you, what answers youll find.
Chapter Six questions
1. Bart said that debate is good. During
political elections, such as the upcoming 2016
Presidential election, the candidates debate
each other about issues that they think are
important. Look through recent issues of the
newspaper for issues that people are concerned about now. Make a list of them. Over
the next several months, pay attention to the
people who want to be the next President of
the United States and see ifthey take a stand
on any or all of these issues.
2. Barts Big Brain Turns Blue is set
in the future, three years from now. In the
eighth paragraph of this chapter, Bart said
that people are working together to fix the
toxic algal bloom problem, and goes on to list
all the things people are doing. Make a list of
the steps he mentions and research to find out
how many of these steps are being considered.
3. Bart is from Bowling Green. Find
Bowling Green on a map of Ohio. Using the
scale of distance on the map, estimate how far
your town is from Bowling Green. Are HABs,
and the things that cause them, more or less
likely to be a concern where you live?
Chapter Six vocabulary
debate
Ohio Environmental Protection Agency
wetland
grass filter strips
The use of Barts Big Brain Turns Blue,
end-of-chapter questions and vocabulary as a
classroom educational tool helps meet Ohios
new learning standards in: English Language
Arts; Mathematics; Science; Social Studies
with concentrations in Ohio and High School
Contemporary World Issues.

Movie Review

Southpaw

"Drink Me"

Directed by Antoine Fuqua


R
The first thing you see in
Southpaw is quite literalits
the left hand, the south paw,
of boxer Billy Hope (Jake
Gyllenhaal), as he prepares
to enter the ring at Madison
Square Garden.
That paw, and its awesome
knockout power, has lifted
Hope from his humble, hardscrabble orphanage origins
to the top of the prizefighting
world, where he now reigns as
the light heavyweight champ.
But how much more pounding, pummeling, bruising
and bleeding can the champ
takeand give?
As he comes home from
another victorious match,
his precious young daughter
(Oona Laurence) gets up from
her bed and puts on her glasses to better see the his fresh
scars and cuts.
The more you get hit, the
harder you fight, I get it, his
beautiful wife, Maureen (Rachel McAdams) tells him,
pleading with him to stopor
at least take a long break.
Billys manager (rapper 50
Cent) prods him in a different
direction. If it makes money,
it makes sense, he says, urging him to sign a three-year,
three-fight, $30 million deal
with HBO. A cocky young Columbian upstart (Miguel Gomez) itches for a fight. You
aint ever been hit by a real
man! he taunts him. Maureen
warns Billy of his swirl of
hangers-on, warning him they
will scatter like cockroaches

A New Champ Billy Hope is a pounding, pummeling


prizefighter in Southpaw, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Rachel McAdams & Forrest Whittaker.
once his bubble of money and
success bursts.
And burst it does, and
worse, in a tragic and terrible turn of events. Hope is
dethroned, forced to give up
his home and stripped of everything that ever meant anything to him. Starting again
from the bottom, he works
with a demanding trainer
(Forrest Whittaker) to try to
put the pieces of his crashed,
crumbled life together again.
Its a classic tale told anew,
and not without its share of
clichs. But Gyllenhall is phenomenal, adding yet another
role to his growing resume of
parts that its hard to imagine
going to any other actor (although rapper Eminem was
reportedly considered). With
a shaved head, 200 pounds of
ripped and rippling muscle,
a billboard of tattoos across
his body and a perennially
banged-up face, hes almost
unrecognizable. But its impossible to take your eyes off
him.
Working from an original
story by Kurt Sutter, the creator/writer/producer/director
of TVs Sons of Anarchy, di-

rector Antoine Fuqua (Training Day, Shooter, Olympus


Has Fallen, The Equalizer)
weaves a powerful human
drama about home and family
into the framework of a dynamic, rousing boxing saga. A
soundtrack of tunes from Eminem, the Notorious B.I.G.,
Busta Rhymes and other hiphop artists helps set the scene
in todays f-bombing, bling-afied realm of modern sports, a
world away from The Champ,
Raging Bull and Rocky. The
camerawork and choreography of the fighting scenes are
outstandingand so realistic,
youll probably be checking
your garments for splat and
spatter when you leave the
theater.
It may not be everyones
idea of relaxing, uplifting
escapist matinee balm. But
above and beyond the brutal,
visceral slaps, jabs, and upper
cuts is a bigger, softer story, a
tale of a father and a daughter on a journey of emotional
homecoming that packs quite
a punch of its own.

BY NATHANIEL SILLIN
Stress can come from everywhere career, school, family,
relationships, health and especially money.
The American Psychological Association (APA) recently
reported that money remains the number one stressor for 72 percent of Americans. In fact, money has led the APAs annual stress
survey since its debut in 2007, the year before the financial crash
that took the U.S. economy into its worst slump since the Great
Depression.
Are you financially stressed? Here are 10 major signs of financial stress and ways to take action.
1. You wonder if your job is secure. Even though the economy
has improved in recent years, employers still cut and reassign
workers and make occasional adjustments in pay and benefits. If
youve spotted changes in other
departments or news accounts
suggest a shift in your industry, start thinking ahead. Action
Plan: Build up your emergency
fund to cover six months or
more of basic living expenses, update your resume and get
organized for a potential job
search.
2. Theres no money to
save or invest. If meeting basic
expenses is a struggle and you
have no savings or investments
at all, its time for a serious
review of where your money is
going. Action plan: Making a
Sillin
basic budget is the first step to tracking every penny spent. Figure out extras you can cut and set more
aside for savings and debt payoff.
3. You have disagreements with a spouse or partner about
money. A 2013 University of Kansas study noted that arguments
about money are the top predictor of divorce. Action plan: Share
information about all debt and legal issues and exchange respective credit reports and credit score data as you plan to solve all
money problems together.
4. You are paying bills late. Late payments can hurt your credit
score (http://www.myfico.com). Action plan: Set up a physical or
digital calendar to keep track of payment dates and budget in order
to put more money toward debt and eventually savings.
5. You imagine a windfall. Waiting for a bonus, an inheritance
or even a winning lotto ticket to ease your financial stress indicates you have a tendency toward financial denial. Action plan: If
your current efforts at budgeting, saving money or paying off debt
arent working, consider a reality check with a qualified financial
advisor.
6. You use your home equity like a cash register. Home equity
loans or lines of credit can provide an interest-deductible solution
for a variety of important needs, but a down housing market can
wipe out your equity. Action plan: Either refinance if you qualify
or stop using the line entirely until you can pay down the balance.
7. Youre considering drawing from retirement funds to solve
money problems. Think twice before taking out loans against
these funds. Interrupting your retirement planning, particularly
over the age of 50, can have significant financial consequences.
Action plan: Re-budget your finances and seek qualified advice to
help you find another solution.
8. Late and overdraft fees are piling up. According to the Pew
Charitable Trusts, the average bank overdraft fee is $35; credit
card late fees are similar. Action plan: Schedule bill payments and
opt for online billing when possible to save time on mailing. If you
have to pay additional late fees, ask your bank or credit card company if it might forgive the fee; many will remove one fee a year.
9. Youre late on student loan payments. It is difficult to have
student loans (https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/) forgiven, cancelled
or discharged (eliminated) in bankruptcy if you cant pay. Paying
late can also hurt your credit score. Action Plan: Seek qualified
financial advice that specifically addresses the type of student debt
you have and resolve to pay bills on time.
10. Your accounts are disorganized. Its difficult to reach
important financial goals when you really cant track your
finances. Action plan: Get some advice from a trusted friend or a
qualified financial professional about how to best organize your
accounts and whether online account management may be right
for you.
Bottom line: Reducing your financial stress is a healthy decision. Review your money habits and get qualified help if necessary to lessen this burden.
