Harald p, u eust 13 1998 page 9 Direct Deposit Is Ready .When You Are I NAPS ):--Anyone who says senoz's are hesitant to embrace new technologies should take a look at recent trends in electronic banking. Today, millions of Americans are getting their Social Security, supplemental inconle, disability, and Veterans payments sent directly into their accounts through 1)irect Deposit. According to the U.S. Treasury Department, more than (35 percent of these payments are now nmde by Direct Deposit, and the numbers are increasing every month. The federal government has been ot'fering Direct Deposit as an ol)tion to Social Security and other fbderal benelit recipients tbr more than 20 years. In 1996, Congress passed a law aimed at requiring most federal payznents to he made by electronic transfm'. The law intends to enroll most check recipients in Direct 1/)eposit by the end of this year, but it also allows the Treasury I)epartment to extend waiver to individuals tbr a variety of reasons. Treasury empha- sizes that no payment will be with- held or delayed fbr any reason, and payment recipients do not l:tave to take any action now. More specilic infbrmation will be available fi'om Treasury later this summer. "All federal beneficiaries will Hang Up on' Crammers' You Could Unwittingly Sign Up Jor New/'hone Services NcwsUSA (NU) - Many people are hearing about or experiencing a telephone marketing scam called slamming. However, there is a relatively new telephone scam that is becoming just as widespread. This scare is called "cramming." Cramming is the ille- gal practice of adding charges to consumers' phone bills for products or services without proper autho- rization from the customer. Local phone companies provide billing for other providers so that cu,;- tomers can receive all their telecom- munications charges on one bill. This includes long-distance, voice mail, security monitoring and pc: sonal 800 numbers, among other:,. However, some entrepreneurs '.,re taking ad- vantage of this servi ,e and are ripping the consumer off' Often, they use de- vious ways to get customers to un- knowingly s;gn up tbr new services. These entrepreneurs are fre- quently successful in obtaining a sig- nature on a document that has noth- ing to do with telephone service, such as'a sweepstakes entry fornl. In many cases, there is language hidden in the fine print that authorizes a company to bill you tor a new service. There is no doubt that these practices are unethical. The Feder- al Communications Commission and lt)cal phone colnpallics across the country havc bccn trying to crack down Oll ,his praclice, but with increased competition coming to the lel¢coinnlunicatiOllS inarket- place, the llunlher of conlplaints COlllillucs Io grow. Hcrc arc a few steps that you can take in order Io prevent being cr;.inlllled: • Always review your phone bill carefully. Be aware of services you have ordered and read the fine print of anything you sign. • If you have been crammed, contacl your local phone colnpany immediately and explain that you did not authorize any new services. Request that the charges bc removed from your bill. • Call the company that cramnled you and let them know that you will not pay for thc charges incurred. If the company refuses, tile a complaint with the F'CC. ,1i requesl a free hrochure otit- l{Itirtg.

Pub, Aug. 6,13, 1998 continue to receive their payment by check, unless--and until--they give us instructions to have those 'payments made by Direct Deposit into an account ot' their choice," said John D. ttawke, Treasury Under Secretary for Domestic Finance. "We recognize tbat there are many circumstances in which federal benefit recipients will not be able to take advantage of Direct Deposit right away. We intend to give people plenty of opportunity to determine whether Direct Deposit makes sense for them." Financial service providers' promotion of direct deposit among account holders and cash con- sumers has created some confu- sion about the specific require- ments--and deadlines--that will affect federal payments. Under SeCretary Hawke said the Treasury Department will not tolerate any organization making false or misleading statements about the government's direct deposit program. Treasury will alert regulators about financial service providers it believes are misleading beneficiaries in an attempt to alarm beneficiaries into signing up for a specific service. In addition to offering beneficia- ries a sai, simple and secure way to get their federal payments, Direct Deposit will save taxpayers as much as $100 million annually in process- ing costs. The cost to process a Direct Deposit payment is approxi- mately four cents, while the cost to process a paper check is 45 cents. GLEN E. BALLARD Glen E.

TOM TRIMBLE Tom Trimble, a long time resident of Douglas County died Sunday evening August 2, 1998 in an Adult Family Home in Lynnwood, Washington. He died of congestive he,'wt failure. He was 94 years old at the time of his death. He was born on a wheat farm near Sampsel, Missouri, December 7, 1903. He was the fifth child of ten children born to Leander (Lee) and Francis Trimble, who had come from Kentucky. In 1908 the family moved to alarm in Norton, Kansas. Then in 1913 they boarded a train and travelled to the slate of Washin gton, to the small town of Garfield, south of Spokane, in the Palouse country. They leased a wheat farm, and Lee and Francis spent the rest of their lives there. The boys lives were not easy, especially with a father who never "spared the rod." I!! 1920, Tom decided to go to Pullman and attend high school. He worked for a florist for his board and room. However, in 1923, he decided to quit school and seek work in California. He worked at several different jobs, in both California and Chicago, during the next three years. On a job in Chicago, he met a Texas farm boy named Jerry Ritberger, and they became great friends. They were "Tom and Jerry" to their friends, as they moved from one job to another. They travelled m New York City in 1926 and both became steel workers, working primarily on bridge construction. They worked on three bridges in NYC. While working on the NYC High Bridge, he was involved in an accident and lost his left eye. In 1928, they went to Louisville, Kentucky, and worked on a railroad bridge. The years 1930 to 1933 were lean years for Tom, as they were for many Americans during the depregsion years, but he was willing to go wherever there was work. In 1933 he was hired to work on the bridge that he is most proud of: the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. Soon after getting the job on the Golden Gate, he met his bride-to-be, Darlene Matthews. The were married in June 1934. Their first son, Donald, was born on December 10, 1936, and their second son,. Richard, on February 10,1938. When the"Gale"job was overin 1937, he obtained employment as a mechanic in the San Francisco Trailway's bus garage. In 1940, the lamily moved to San Bruno, just south of S.E Then in 1946, the family went to Washington for a vacation; and this led to their decision to stay and lease a wheat farm in Douglas County nea/" Sims Corner (N. Ctl. WA.). The next five years provided the family with many great memories. But, the farm itself was an economic disaster, between bad land, drought years, and the 1948 hail storm that wiped out their crop. Also. Darlene began to have medical problems. In 1950 they moved thirty miles away to Mansfield, where the boys finished both grade and high school. Tom was hired by the Douglas County Road Department in 1951, and worked there for the next twenty years, retiring as the Mansfield are county road boss in 1971. However, the family suffered a great loss when Darlene died of kidney failure in 1958, at the young age of 54, She had been a wonderful wife and mother. Tom met Evalin Coleman, of Bridgeport, in 1964, and they were married in 1970. But, sadly, in the spring of 1976, Evalin died of cancer. That same year, Tom met and married another Bridgeport woman, Edna Sollender. They were together for twelve years until their divorce in 1988. In 1989, he moved to Seattle to live with his son Don and family, and lived with them until this spring when he was moved to an adult family home in Lynnwood, He is survived by his son Don of Seattle and his son Richard of San Antonio, Texas; Seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild. There will be a memorial service for him in Seattle Friday, at the HallerLake United Methodist Church and a graveside service in Garfield on Sunday.
