Currently, school board can- didates do not declare a political affili- ation. Associating school board races with political parties will only serve to inject unnecessary and often unrelat- ed national issues into these local rac- es. State and county party bosses would gain more control over education deci- sions than teachers, administrators, par- ents, or even the actual elected officials themselves. Good candidates who do not wish to select one party over another will be dis- couraged from running for office, while those with only their own future politi- cal ambitions in mind will use the office as a stepping stone. I urge you to con- tact your Statehouse officials. Tell them to keep politics out of schools and vote NO on HB 1042 and SB 144. John Hurley Richland, IN tential threat."

FORWARD Continued from page 4 KOREA Continued from page 4 Dear Rusty: My wife and I have a Medicare Advantage Plan, and we do not use Medicare for our claims. However, we still have the Medicare premium de- ducted from our Social Security checks. Is this correct? Signed: Wondering. Dear Wondering: If, after age 65, you choose to take Medicare outpatient coverage of any kind you must pay that Part B premium, even if you decide to ac- quire a Medicare Advantage plan instead of using "original Medicare" to adminis- ter your healthcare claims. Medicare Advantage plans (often re- ferred to as Medicare "Part C") are healthcare plans offered by private in- surers who will administer your health- care claims instead of the Federal Gov- ernment. But you cannot get a Medicare Advantage plan without first being en- rolled in Medicare Part A (inpatient hos- pitalization coverage) and Part B (cover- age for outpatient services) and paying any associated Part B (and perhaps Part A) premium. As you know, you pay a low premium (or perhaps no premium) for your Medicare Advan- tage plan. That's because the Part B premium you are now paying from your Social Security is actual- ly going to your Medicare Advantage plan provider, enabling them to offer you equivalent coverage at lit- tle or no additional cost. Some Medicare Advan- tage plans even provide added coverage which Medicare Part B doesn't, such as dental and vision and, sometimes, prescription drug coverage. If that all sounds enticing, remember that Medicare Advantage plans usually also include restrictions on which medi- cal service providers you can use, unlike "original Medicare" which permits you to use any medical service provider who ac- cepts Medicare (nearly all). So, when you see or hear a Medicare Advantage provider advertising "no cost" or "very low cost" coverage, recognize that they can offer that only because the government pays them a fixed amount for your care from the Medicare Part B premium taken from your So- cial Security. The Part B pre- mium you are paying from your Social Security benefit is why your Medicare Advan- tage plan premium is as low as it is. Many people like the cost efficiency and extra coverage provided by Medicare Advantage plans and are comfortable with the restric- tion to use "in-network" providers. Ma- ny others choose "original Medicare'' because of the inherent flexibility to use just about any healthcare service provid- er they wish. You should always carefully evaluate which type of healthcare cover- age is right for you personally.

His 10 years in power have resulted in continued eco- nomic and food calamities, human rights violations, and political repression.

During its isola- tion, North Korea will contin- ue to develop, augment, and refine its nuclear and missile arsenals. North Korea remains wed- ded to its disastrous social- ist economic policies, brutal repression methods, increas- ing military capabilities, and defiance of UN resolutions requiring its denucleariza- tion. 2022 will likely be quiet on the Korean Peninsula for the near term as the regime fo- cuses on getting its econom- ic house in order. But no one can foresee how long the rel- ative calm will remain.

Dear Hoosiers, Four months ago, we walked into an empty warehouse in southern Johnson County, Indiana. Down the road, thousands of A fghans were streaming into Camp Atterbury af- ter a terrifying and traumatic escape from their country. For years, many of them worked alongside the U.S. military and/ or government officials, doing what they could to help to stabilize their country. Now they were in the United States, forced to leave everything behind be- cause they stood by America's side. As one Team Rubicon volunteer said: "They made a conscious choice to help the American troops for hopes of bet- terment of their country and their lives, and I think we owe it to them to continue and uphold our end of it." For Team Rubicon assisting with oth- ers on Operation Allies Welcome was a new type of mission. We're a veteran-led organization built to serve at-risk and vulnerable popula- tions affected by disasters such as torna- does, hurricanes, floods and wildfires. Think cutting tornado downed trees, tar- ping wind damaged roofs, and pushing mud out water-logged homes. But this mission was different, it was new, and there was no roadmap to refer to. Before it was over Team Rubicon would assist at 10 separate locations across the United States with the ultimate task of conducting donations management sup- port. Working in a warehouse collecting, sorting, and providing donated items to recently displaced individuals all in an ef- fort to help, all amid a pandemic. We reacted, we went, we did that which was necessary to accomplish the mission thereby providing the generous outpour- ing of donations from the citizens of Indi- ana to our nation's newest guests. Hoosiers demonstrated their hospital- ity by quickly providing new, meaning- ful, items towards this effort. These con- sistent acts of generosity by each person, organization, or group brought not only much needed items to our guests, but al- so the hope and promise of a much bet- ter beginning then their most recent end. In just a few weeks, our warehouse was bursting with new diapers, toothbrushes, and shampoos, along with an increasing number of socks, shirts and pants.More than 2 million items of donated goods were processed at the warehouse assist- ing Camp Atterbury. Almost the entirety provided by the people of the state of In- diana. Each item a sacrifice of someone's time and money, given to assist another start a new life. In addition to the material goods came the new Team Rubicon members, people of Indiana who raised their hand, saying "pick me, I want to help." Close to 250 indi- vidual Team Rubicon volunteers assisted over the course of these four months. Ma- ny of these individuals were new to Team Rubicon, the majority of them from Indi- ana, and all of them willing to give of their time, their ability, and their heart. Each open to sweat in the heat of September and shiver in the cold of December to sort, pack, and process the mountains of donated items provided through the gen- erosity of their friends, neighbors and fel- low Hoosiers. Donations came from every corner of the state. Faith communities, charitable organizations, civic groups, business- es, families, children, veterans and oth- ers dropped off items at Indiana armor- ies across the state, our collection site at Johnson County Park or in some oth- er fashion ensuring that the donations made it to our warehouse. Many of you give often, returning time and time again to demonstrate your Hoosier Hospitality. Our mission, to receive, sort, and pre- pare for distribution all donated items in support of Operation Allies Welcome, would not have succeeded the way it did without the support of Indiana State Lead- ership, namely Gov. Eric Holcomb along with the Military Leaders at Camp At- terbury, National and Stage Agencies, and other Non-Governmental Organiza- tions. Each knew their role and execut- ed their duties with the intent to serve. It has been amazing to work for and along- side each and every one involved and to witness the care and sensitivity demon- strated to our guests. At Team Rubicon, we often say our ac- tions are characterized by the constant pursuit to prevent or alleviate human suf- fering and restore human dignity – we help people on their worst day. Hoosiers, you did that! It was YOU who lifted up and gave support to our A fghan guests which was beyond anything we could imagine. But you know this is only the first phase. We trust that you will con- tinue to support our A fghan allies as they settle in your communities and across our country by continuing to demonstrate Hoosier Hospitality. We share all of this to say Thank You for stepping into the arena with us. For demonstrating that Hoosier Hospitality is more than a tag line. For meeting and exceeding the need, and for giving hope and showing love to others. May each recipient never forget your compassionate and generous giving as we will never forget all that you have shown us. In gratitude, Russ Hessler, Task Force Leader Tyler Smith, Liaison Team Rubicon, Camp Atterbury Note: Tyler Smith served in the U.S. Army and retired from the 10th Special Forces Group. He was deployed for five years in support of Operation Iraqi Free- dom, serving in Iraq and Jordan. Russ Hessler served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1978 to 1983. Team Rubicon ended its mission at Camp Atterbury on Jan. 7. Looking to read about your local news? Subscribe today to read it in one place. 820 E.
