Cad City Herald January . 1991 II I Straig.ht American Legion extends Legal Notices To Seniors eligibility period for veterans Your Right To Know By Annette Tussing Sponsored by Medical Service Corp. of Eastern Washington Medicaid Move Despite many disappointments in the finally-passed federal budget, there are some gains. The Medicaid frail elderly Home and Community Act was passed. This will make it easier for states to provide very disabled, aged people and those with Alzheimer&apos;s disease long-term care in their homes. However, this homecare program is optional for states. We will need to contact our Legislators to urge them to provide this program in our state. In a recent column we provided several toll-free phone numbers to make this contact with those in Olympia. Consider This The human heart is one of the most reliable and efficient pumps ever devised. Not much larger than a man's fist, yet in less than a second it can squeeze out a third of a cup of blood with such force it surges through more than 60,000 miles of blood vessels. This happens on an average of 72 times a minute, 100,050 times a day, often for more than a century without failing its owner. To make sure it is not at risk, have your blood pressure checked regularly, if you smoke, stop, reduce salt and fat and get exercise. Seniors on Skls Would you dare get on skis and challenge Mt. Spokane slopes? Some seniors do and are. You'll see them in action on the Feb.3 PRIME TIME For Seniors, 5 p.m. Sundays, KHQ- TV Channel 6. Coming soon in February on that show, an intensive look at medical- drug interaction in the aging-a growing threat as you get older. A Spokane pharmacist will give cautions to prevent drug reactions. In Bad Taste The above is the name of a star- fling new book, the first long study on a substance used increasingly in our everyday processed foods and some, like tuna, canned. But if you look in the list of ingredients you probably won't find MSG listed. It can be hidden under a variety of names, including "natural flavoring". Discovered in seaweed by the Japanese many years ago, it enhan- ces all flavors. Even the ',canned!' taste or that from inferior products can be masked by MSG, giving more profits to the processors. Only recently has it been found that many people are, in some degree, allergic to MSG. It can cause everything from minor allergies and behavior problems in children to serious effects like Migraines and heart irregularities. It is often difficult to diagnose the cause. Ask for the book by Dr. G.R. Sch- wartz, Health Press, Santa Fe, NM, or call to order it, 1-800-20718. Senior Sharings In using any medication con- tainer, especially eye drops, do not set the removed cover with its bet- tom on an unsterile surface. Instead lay it on the side, to avoid con- tamination. You can make many products at home, with great savings: dandruff shampoo-crush an aspirin and add to regular shampoo, gives you salicylic acid, base of the commer- cial product. To strengthen fingernails, get white iodine at the drug store. Apply three times a week. If yellowing oc- curs cut to once a week. To cure the "worst ailment known to women" laryngitis: blend equal amounts of fresh carrot and pineap- ple juices. Drink a glass an hour. Free IRS Help While you're gathering together , President Bush has signed legislation authorizing a change in the charter of the American Legion permitting veterans who served during the periods of the liberation of Granada and peacekeeping effor- ts in Lebanon and in "Operation Just Cause" in Panama to join the nation's largest veterans organization. The bill S-3091 was sent to the president on October 22 and signed on October 30. It takes effect im- mediately. Veterans newly eligible to join the Legion are those who served August 24, 1982 - July 31, 1984 (Granada and Lebanon); and from December 20, 1989 - January 31, 1990 (Operation Just Cause). R is estimated that as many as 3.5 million veterans may be affected by this legislation. The extension of membership resulted from a resolution that passed unanimously at the legion's 72nd National Convention in In- dianapolis in 1990. It is the first change in the eligibility dates since 1979. The American Legion National Commander Robert S. Turner has unveiled the Family Support Net- work of the American Legion, a nationwide program to assist, when requested, the families of regular active duty personnel, National Guardsmen and Reservists who were activated and are deployed to operation "Desert Shield" in the Mideast. By dialing a special toll free number 1-800-786-0901 families are often just moments away from receiving the help that they need. Such assistance might range from home maintenance to finding part- time Jobs for families left behind. It has even been used to help families whose water lines have frozen in the recent cold spell. The new extended eligibility dates aLso apply for membership in the American Legion Auxiliary. Any woman whose father, husband, son, brother, grandfather, or themselves served during these newly established dates may now join the auxiliary unit. The auxiliary is in- volved in many worthwhile ac- tivities and needs new members to continue their good works on behalf of veterans and their families. Wage earners due to receive '"Wage and Tax Statements" Taxpayers are receiving their Form(s) W-2, Wage and Tax statement. Employers are required by law to have made these forms available to employees by January 31, 1991, according to Judy Monahan, Public Affairs spokesper- son for the Seattle District of the In- ternal Revenue Service. "Anyone who did not receive a W-2 by January 31, should contact their employer to see if the form is available. If the W-2 has not been received by February 15, call the IRS and ask for assistance. In Seat- tle call the IRS at 422-1040, else where in the state call 1-800-829- 1040," Monahan said. Monahan said to be sure your correct address is on file with the employer. This is the most common cause for non-receipt of the forms. Taxpayers should receive a W-2 form from each employer they worked for during the year, regar- dless of the length of time. Taxpayers unable to get a W-2 before April 15, when the return is due, should file a timely return with the wages and withholding calculated on the basis of whatever records are available, such as payroll stubs, deposit slips, etc. In- clude a statement explaining the computations for the missing wage and tax information. W-2's, or the substitute statement, must be attached to the tax return for the return to be processed.
