L Page2 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES, St. Paul, VA, Thursda), July 11,2013 I i- R printed from June 5, 1975 On the Fourth of July last year, St. Paul looked like a deserted placo:...a ghost town. A few of the town's youngsters were at the swimming pool, but other than that, no one'seemed to be, much less doing anything. There was no community activity at all, at a time when the,community should celebrate the fact of this country's "establishment and their gratitude at being a part'0fit. That was the Fourth of July, 1974. Shortly 'after that day last year, the St. Paul Bicentennial . Committee was appointed. The Committee plans to change the look of the national holiday in St, Paul this year. The fourth of July, 1975, will mark the 199th birthday of the United States of America, and in St. wax** by Ann Young Gregory tO enjoy hearing these excellent musicians salute their country's birthday. Later in the afternoon, the committee has planned a series of "contests", such as a 3-legged race, egg rolling, sack races, etc., which our turn-of-the-century counterparts enjoyed at community gatherings. Picnic baskets will be the order of the day at suppertime, when everyone is asked to bring a basket packed for his or her own family, and everyone will share the picnic together. Some more music will be featured between picnic time and dark, and the committee is now in the process of working on a fireworks display as the culmination of the day's festivities. As a model for this celebration for the Fourth of July, the Bicentennial Committee took accounts of Paul, will be observed in a very big way as a kick-off small town Fourth of July celebrations around 1900 for the year-long Bicentennial Celebration. from a number of sources, and compiled the most Realizing that a number of people have planned vacations diJri'ng the first few weeks of July, the St. Paul Bicentennial Committee is nevertheless planning a celebration .Which will, hopefully, entice some St. Paul and area'people to stay off the highways and join in the fun on .the Fourth. The day's -events will include the formal opening of the St. Pautbranch of the Lonesome Pine Regional Library, a project which has been directed by the St. Paul Bicentemmial Committee .as one of its major undertakings and as a project of lasting cultural value to the entire-cbmmunity. Patriotic music which will be performed. "by members of the St. Paul Deacon band duringan old-fashioned band concert will also be featured, 'and all of the area citizens who are interested in celebrating the Fourth of July are invited outstanding features into an afternoon and evening's festivities for St. Paul's own 1975 celebration. The day will be so filled with activities, for all ages, that the Committee has hopes that this event will become an annual one, rather than just a two-time (July 4th, 1975 and 1976) Bicentennial observance. All of us need to get together every so often to share a joyous occasion. This happy celebration will provide the opportunity for us to do that, and, in our so-doing, we'll provide the opportunity for a more closely-knit community through the rest of the year. We owe it to ourselves to enjoy the company of our neighbors throughout the entire town. So do yourself a' favor, and plan right now to attend the events planned for St. Paul during the afternoon and evening on the Fourth of July!

The SCC also encourages veterans and their families to consider the following: Annuities - Senior veterans, in particular, should exercise caution when in- vesting in annuities so they do not lose access to funds they may need for future expenses. An annuity is a contract in which an insur- ance company makes a series of income payments at reg- ular intervals in return for a premium or premiums paid by the owner. Annuities are most often purchased for future income and can be structured to provide income for long periods of time. Deferred annuities may not be suitable for older veterans since, with these products, the owner does not receive payment for the premium investment for several years and withdrawing funds from it early can be very costly. of annuity products to sen- iors, particularly for men and women who served in the armed forces. Before signing a contract or an annuity, the Bureau of Insurance encour- ages veterans to make sure they understand the terms of the contract, how any money is invested, and when the benefit payments will begin, keeping in mind the con- sumer's financial status, tax status, and investment ob- jectives, among other things. Marketing and Sales Practices - The SCC urges veterans to beware of in- dividuals who may claim to be veterans advocates repre- senting a nonprofit organiza- ~tion or claiming to be iendorsed by the Veterans Administration when, in fact, thef are insurance agents trying to sell a product. In some cases, these individuals may use false or misleading designations that seem to indicate they are an expert in senior issues when they are not. Some may hold presentations at assisted living facilities presumably to help veterans complete pension applications to qualify for their VA benefits, but do not disclose that they are actually insurance agents selling annuities to help veterans qualify for the benefts.
