I nnlng Program Focuses on Preserving Your Farm or Small Business Southwest Minnesota Farm Business Management Association (SWMFBMA) has joined with the University of Minnesota Extension to present "Long- Term Health Care Planning: Preserving Your Farm or Small Business." This workshop is filled with practical information and strategies focused on help- ing farm families and small business owners preserve their business from long- term health care costs. Workshop participants gain a greater understand- ing of the probability of needing long-term care, today's cost for long-term care, the federal Medicare and Medicaid programs and what they will and will not pay for, self-pay and self-insure options, and a discussion of long-term care insurance. As part of the workshop, partici- pants will receive a detailed workbook as a take-home reference. The result is the understanding and skills to begin development and implementation of a long- term health care plan. Given today's cost of long-term health care, a family business can be put at financial risk. Having a long-term health care plan in place, can protect the business from risk and ena- ble you to pass that business onto the next generation. "Long-Term Health Care Planning: Preserving Your Farm or Small Business" is scheduled for February 18, 2014 from 1:30 to 4:00 pm at the Southwest Research and Outreach Center in Lamberton located at 23669 130th Street. The workshop cost is $20.00 and space is limited. To pre-register for the work- shop, contact Barb Leuning at 507-752-5094. The workshop is jointly sponsored by the Southwest Minnesota Farm Business Management Association in cooperation with University of Minnesota Extension FIED ADS 274-6136 OR 1-800-410-1859 212106 Homeowners and business owners should watch for a buildup of ice on or above their gas meters and service reg- ulators. Snowfall and temperature changes can combine to create potentially hazardous conditions for the operation of gas util- ities. When snow melts from roofs or eaves and drips onto me- ters and gas service regulators, it usually re-freezes, forming an ice block that can seal off the vent on the gas service reg- ulator. With the vent sealed, the regulator doesn't work properly and one of two things could happen. Gas pressure can build up inside the building, resulting in a fire or explosion or the lack of flow will result in loss of service and no heat. Either situation is serious. Outside meter and service regulator sets should be kept clear of dripping water and snow accumulation. Snow re- moved from driveways, walks, streets or parking lots should not be placed near a meter set, service regular or other gas facility. And if your regulator does become covered with ice, don't try to remove the ice by yourself, because you could damage the equipment. Call your natural gas supplier and have it done safely. Contractors, residents and building owners should exercise caution when removing ice and snow from areas around a building, as well. Neither the blown snow nor snow removal equipment itself should come in contact with utilities. If you smell gas, lose service, or your appliances are mal- functioning, leave your home, go to a neighbor's and call your natural gas supplier immediately. i i f
