m public Notices Winthrop News Wednesday, September 29, 2010 Page 8 Still standing What was once a beautiful bed and breakfast on the east edge of Winthrop is now a lonely rundown structure just waiting to be taken down. Winthrop City Administrator Mark Erickson said that the city is waiting for word from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources on whether it can burn the build- ing down. The Winthrop Fire Department and the Winthrop City Council wig also have to give their blessing to burning it as well. Matt Meyer bought the Notices building last year and is the process of removing everything of value before it is razed. Erickson said that process is nearly complete. Erickson thinks that burning the building would be good practice for the first department and would give good use to the new hydrants that are located in the industrial park. He doesn't know if it will disappear this year but is cautiously optimistic.

No. 45366 48-49(af)Wc LEGAL NOTICE to Landowners/Renters: Adjacent to the Minnesota Valley Regional Railroad (MVRRA) Right of Way The Minnesota Valley Regional Rail Authority (MVRRA) is giving notice to landowners adjacent to the railroad right of way (ROW) TO NOT ENCROACH on the ROW. The Rail ROW is generally 50 feet on each side of the center of the main track. A meeting will be held on Monday, October 4, at 9 a.m. in the basement meeting room in the Sibley County Court House for all LANDOWNERS and their Renters who farm along the Railroad track right of way. Please make every effort to attend. MVRRA was completed a 12-mile section of rail bed rehabilitation and as part of the construction, the ROW will be reclaimed and planted in native grasses during the SpringSummer of 2011. NO CROPS are permitted in the ROW and will be removed. Landowners should notify their renters. MVRRA will be posting the ROW with signage after crops are removed this fall. This same process will be involved in our next 9 miles of rehabilitation from County Road 13 - County Road 4 approximately in 2011.

Not only pre-retirees, but individuals already in retirement need to be wise to the changing eco- nomic environment. The good news is there are trained professionals who keep abreast of changes in the cur- rent economy, changes in laws and changes in government programs for the elderly. These professionals are equipped to handle everything from help with retirement savings accounts, investment advice, guid- ance on government programs, estate planning or even funding options such as reverse mortgages. A little planning prior to retirement will allow you to maintain your cur- rent lifestyle. However, a lack of planning may require you to live on an extremely tight budget. For those already retired, taking time right now to deal with financial problems instead of waiting for a crisis to hap- pen is well advised. A large number of retired indi- viduals feel that they have planned MACUiJgR Chris J. Palmer, O.D. well for the future only to find that rising medical costs, damage done to investment portfolios (by the current economy) and many other factors have caused them to go into debt. Some seniors are racking up debt like never before. Elderly individu- als who are in debt live with a con- stant burden over their heads. Most of these people are on fixed incomes and have no way of paying off cred- it cards and home equity loans that continue to mount to cover house- hold budget deficits. In order to meet ongoing payments, seniors often forego purchasing medications and skimp on food budgets. Some may live like hermits by pinching every penny in order to pay their obligations. Most of these people worked hard their entire lives and managed their debt. They never anticipated the rising costs of prescriptions, expensive medical care or depletion of savings by living too long. The good news is there is help for these individuals. Here are just a few examples of some relief options that could be available. Reverse mortgages - A Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECMs), also known as a reverse mortgage, is a risk-free way of tap- ping into home equity without creat- ing monthly payments and without requiring the money to be paid back during a person's lifetime. Instead of making payments the cash flow is reversed and the senior receives pay- ments from the bank. Thus, the title "reverse mortgage". For those sen- iors who are less fortunate financial- ly but own a home, a reverse mort- gage can allow them to remain in the home by creating extra income. Life settlements - A life settle- ment enables older individuals, busi- nesses and other organizations to sell life insurance policies they currently own but no longer want or need for an amount greater than the cash sur- render value. In some cases the value can be 2-3 times the cash sur- render value. Even some term life insurance policies with a conversion option to permanent coverage can qualify for a life settlement. Government Programs - Some government programs such as food stamps provide temporary financial help for food. Other programs pro- vide subsidized housing, help with medical expenses and provide tax credits. Veterans may be eligible for free or low cost health care, inexpen- sive prescriptions and disability income. For some, living on a fixed income and dealing with debt can be an overwhelming burden. Fortunately, there are knowledgeable professionals and debt relief strate- gies that can assist in easing this bur- den.
