Artists and medical personnel both know the importance of art.

Each room had a different, deliberately chosen theme. One "v‘t‘s‘r‘r‘y~v"’w_v‘r‘1,Y V,vvr‘§.v :‘nv‘v, :zo‘on‘aszze! g. ‘Q‘A‘ K‘G‘ 5‘? Q'fi -‘. ‘ theme was photographs of the Grand Tetons and Canyon De Chelle taken by Ansel Adams.,Canyon De Chelle is on the Navajo reservation where I did a rotation as a-resident. Another room was filled with an Asian mural and photographs of my time in South Korea when I was a student ambas— sador for South Dakota State Univer- sity at their sister school in Taejon, South Korea. My third exam room had circus posters and pictures of Baraboo, Wisconsin, hometown of the Ringling Brothers, and the loca- tion where I did my residency train- mg. The art helped break the ice with patients and allowed me to share a special part of myself and my life with them. It also provided my pa- tients with something to look at while waiting for me to come into the room. It gave us something to talk about other than their illness or why they came to the doctor that day. As R) Dr. .lill Kl'LISC part of the discussion, I learned about ,, my patignts’ travels, their love of “photography”, or of gomg to the circus as a child} Each pieture ’wa‘san opportunity to share a com- mon bond. COVID forced those pictures off the walls and into storage. The rooms were stripped of anything extraneous that could potentially become con— - taminated. My exam room walls are new blank and sterile; the rooms seem a little colder and less inviting. There is less color and joy in the rooms. Without art, we tend to jump into the clinic visit topic without first connecting as people. I didn’t realize what a big difference the loss of art on the walls could make until it was gone. Dr. Rachel Naomi Remen said, “At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer: a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foun- dation of your work and its integrity.” Photographer Prakash Ghai ex- plained it much more succinctly when he stated, “Art heals both the creator and the viewer.” I miss my art and cannot wait until I can once again hang some healing on my exam room walls.

Dear Savvy Senior, Is there an easy way to figure out how much I will need to save for re- tirement? My wife and I are both in ,our late fifties and want to figure out about how much we’ll need in order to retire comfortably. Ready to Retire Dear Ready, How much money you need to retire comfortably is a great question that all working adults should ask themselves. Unfortunately, far too few ever bother thinking about it. But calculating an approximate number of how much you’ll need to have saved for retirement is actually pretty easy and doesn’t take long to do. It’s a simple, three-step process that includes estimating your future living expenses, tallying up your re- tirement income and calculating the difference. Estimate Living Expenses The first step — estimating your future retirement living expenses — is the most difficult. If you want a quick ballpark estimate, figure around 75 to 85 percent of your cur- rent gross income. That’s what most people find they need to maintain ’1 By Jim Miller their current lifestyle in retirement. If you want a more precise esti— mate, track your current living ex- penses on a worksheet and deduct any costs you expect to go away or decline when you retire, and add whatever new ones you anticipate. Costs you can scratch off your list include work-related expenses like commuting or lunches out, as well as the amount you’re socking away for retirement. You may also be able to deduct your mortgage if you expect to have it paid off by retirement, and your kid’s college expenses. Your in- come taxes should also be less. On the other hand, some costs will probably go up when you retire, like health care, and depending on your interests you may spend a lot more on travel, golf or other hob— bies. And, if you’re going to be re- tired for 20 or 30 years you also need to factor in some occasional big budget items like a new roof, heat- ing/air conditioning system or vehi- cle. Tally Retirement Income Step two is to calculate your re- tirement income. If you and/or your wife contribute to Social Security, go to SSA.gov/MyAccount to get your personalized statement that es- timates what your retirement bene— fits will be at age 62, full retirement age and when you turn 70. In addition to Social Security, if you or your wife has a traditional pension plan from an employer, find out from the plan administrator how much you are likely to get when you retire. And figure in any other in- come from other sources you expect to have, such as rental properties, part-time work, etc. Calculate the Difference The final step is to do the calcu- lations. Subtract your annual living expenses from your annual retire- ment income. If your income alone can cover your bills, .you’re all set. If not, you’ll need to tap your sav- ings,,including your 401(k) plans, ,IRAs, or other investments to maKe up the difference. So, let’s say for example you need around $60,000 a year to meet your living and retirement expenses and pay taxes, and you and your wife expect to receive $35,000 a year from Social Security and other income. That leaves a $25,000 short— fall that you’ll need to pull from your nest egg each year ($60,000 - $35,000 $25,000). Then, depending on what age you want to retire, you need to multiply your shortfall by at least 25 if you want to retire at 60, 20 to retire at 65, and 17 to retire at 70 — or in this case that would equate to $625,000, $500,000 and $425,000, respec- tively. Why 25, 20 and 17? Because that would allow you to pull 4 percent a year from your saVings, which is a safe withdrawal strategy that in most cases will let your money last as long as you do.

Disaster for the Constitution: Flawed assertions of sovereignty No doctrine has posed a greater threat to the US. Constitution than , the flawed assertion of state sover- eignty. It represented the extreme versions of the Virginia and Ken- tucky Resolutions of 1798 that as- serted the authority of states to nullify federal laws, which would have eviscerated the Supremacy Clause and turned the Constitution on its head. It fueled the secession of southern states from the Union, and plunged the nation into the Civil War. And, it has been invoked to deny enforcement of the Bill of the Rights and 14th Amendment protec- tions, including the Equal Protection Clause. We have observed that the framers of the Constitution sought to relegate to the ash can of history the Articles of Confederation and its fea- “ture'd' principle of state sovereignty. That principle had' resulted in disas- ter for the fledgling nation, and del- egates to the Constitutional Convention replaced the concept of “state” sovereignty with the newly minted governing principle of popu- lar sovereignty. In essence, the framers designed a system in which all government power — federal and state alike — would flow from the sovereign people. As ChiefJustice John Marshall declared, the Consti— tution established, “emphatically and truly, a government of the people. In form and substance, it emanates from them.” The Constitution, contrary to the claims of John Calhoun and seces- David Adler, The Alturas Institute David Adler answers your Constitution questions.

Justice James Wil- son, as a member of the Constitu- tional Convention, rebuked the premise: “This system is not a com- pact. The introduction to the work [the Preamble] is not a meaningless flourish; the system tells us what it ig, an'bfdinance‘; an establishnieht-bf the people’.” ‘And James Madison, justly regarded as the Father of the Constitution, observed, “the objects of the Union could not be secured by any system founded on the principle of a confederation of sovereign states.” The Supreme Court, in Chisholm v. Georgia (1793), firmly rejected the concept of state sover- eignty and the claim that the Consti— tution was a “compact” among the states. The great mischief in the asser- tion of state sovereignty and the compact theory of the Constitution lies in its logical implications. If the states are sovereign and can form the Union, then they may leave it, that is, secede from it. That doctrine set fire to the nation when confederate states claimed the right to secede from the Union. That claim, without support in history and law, was re- jected by the Supreme Court, in 1869, in Texas v. White. In 1871, Justice Bradley, speaking for the court, dismissed the indefensible state compact theory and the perni- cious doctrine of secession as “defi— nitely and forever overthrown.” So, what is the source of the con— fusion that lies behind the assertion of states as sovereign and independ— ent communities, a doctrine that con- tains the seeds of the destruction of the Constitution and the United States, as we know it? The term, “sovereignty,” as it evolved over the centuries, came to be known as the ultimate legal and phlitidafl‘lauthoiityin a‘niitioribfiegal‘r and political authority must emanate from a single source; otherwise, it is not the ultimate source of power. In some nations, the sovereign is a king or queen; in others, it may be Parlia- ment. America’s strhggle for inde- pendence and, later, stability, necessarily involved the rejection of monarchical and parliamentary sov— ereignty; it also required, as we have seen in the abysmal performance of the Articles of Confederation, the dismissal of state sovereignty, in favor of popular sovereignty. State governments, like the fed- eral government, could not, by defi- nition, enjoy the attributes of sovereignty since they were created by the Constitution, which is the lone source of their respective pow- ers. Moreover, the Supremacy Clause of Article VI subordinates states to the Constitution, treaties and federal laws, a legal arrange— ment that would be impossible if states were sovereign. Chief Justice John Jay brought clarity to the mat- ter in Chisholm: “Here we see the people acting as sovereigns of the whole country; and in the language of sovereignty, establishing a consti- tution by which it was their will, that the state governments should be bound, and to which state constitu- tions should be made to conform.” In truth, some or much of the con— fusion associated with the term, sov- ereignty, lies in its use or misuse. It is cast about, as. Justice Joseph Story said, “in different senses, which ' often leads to a confusion'ofliddas, and sometimes to very mischievous and unfounded conclusions.” We should, in our public dialogue, speak a little more precisely when the issue of federalism is before us. Properly speaking, the federal government has limited authority or jurisdiction or dominion over particular matters, but certainly not sovereignty. We can say the same for state governments. If we employ in our discourse such precision, or something close to it, then we can examine the real question that puzzles Americans: Which powers are granted to the na- tional government, and which to the states? We turn next week to that great question. Ag department: Make sure trees hardy before planting BISMARCK — Agriculture Com- missioner Doug Goehring is en- couraging homeowners to research products before buying and planting nursery stock for their property. Goehring said the North Dakota Department of Agriculture receives numerous complaints every year from both consumers and dealers about non-hardy stock being sold in the state. North Dakota is in plant hardiness zones 3 and 4. State law requires that all trees and shrubs, designated by the agri- culture commissioner as non-hardy must be labeled “non-hardy in North Dakota.” The penalty for vi- olating the law is up to $500 per in- cident. Repeated violations can result in denial of a nurserylicense. “Some plants are not adapted to surviving our North Dakota winters when the temperature can drop to 25 degrees below zero and colder,” Goehring said. “Some plants may May 26, 2003) not tolerate our soil types or dry winter conditions. Plants not adapted to our environment can also make them more susceptible to plant pests and diseases.” The most common, non-hardy trees and shrubs offered for sale in North Dakota include emerald ar— borvitae, dwarf Alberta spruce, eastern redbud, oakleaf hydrangea, Japanese snowball (Viburnum pli- catum), dappled willow and certain varieties of fruit trees. Emerald ar— borvitae and dwarf Alberta spruce are sometimes labeled as hardy from 30 to 40 degrees below zero, but they tend to winter burn 'badly Golden Valley News PO.
