NDG&F's summer Understandin safety reminders The North Dakota Game and Fish Department urges boaters to keep safety in mind when enjoying time on the water. A boat should have enough life jackets on board for all passengers. North Dakota law requires all chil- dren ages 10 and younger to wear a personal flotation device while in boats of less than 27 feet in length. The law also requires all personal watercraft users to wear a life jacket, as well as anyone towed on skis, tubes, boards or other similar de- vices. However, state law allows an individual who is at least 16 years of age to Windsurf or boardsail without wearing a PFD. Water users should make sure to wear life jackets that are the appro— priate size, and in good condition. Water skiers and tubers should wear a life jacket with four nylon straps rather than one with a zipper, be— cause straps are stronger than zippers upon impact with water. Anglers or persons paddling a canoe should opt for a PFD that is comfortable enough to wear for an entire outing. It is also important that children wear a PFD while swimming. Swim- mers should know the water’s depth, as serious injuries can occur from diving into water. Large objects hid- den below the water’s surface can lead to significant injury. Failure to wear a personal flota- tion device is the main reason people lose their lives in water recreation ac- cidents. North Dakota boaters also are re— minded that marine VHF radios are an important part of boat safety that should not be improperly used by op- erators. These radios are intended for boat operators who are in distress and facing an emergency situation. Regulations to help ensure safe boating this summer are found in the 2018-20 North Dakota Fishing Guide. A more comprehensive listing is available in the North Dakota Boat and Water Safety Guide or the Boat North Dakota education book. Test information can help parents, Baesler says BISMARCK ~ State Superin- tendent Kirsten Baesler says student results from the North Dakota State Assessment for English and mathe- matics are now available for parents to request from their childrens’ schools. Baesler said they offer help- ful information about the progress of each student’s learning. The results are called Individual Student Reports. The North Dakota State Assessment itself was given from March 18 through May 10 to students in grades three through eight, and to students in the 10th grade. Making assessment scores quickly available have made the re— sults more valuable to parents and teachers, Baesler said. Parents who wish to see the reports should request them from their child’s school prin— cipal, the superintendent said. Printed copies could be sent to parents, or they could posted on a se— cure website that would allow par— ents to look at their childrens’ reports, Bauer said. Teachers may also find them useful in deciding how to change instruction for indi- vidual students, and to make instruc— tional plans for the next school year. The North Dakota State Assess- ment’s website has information that is tailored for parents and students at: https://ndsa.portal.airast.org/re— sources/students-and-families/. The site has guides for interpreting the English and mathematics reports. 6 ways to stay solicitor safe With spring and summer in full swing, Better Business Bureau® of Minnesota and North Dakota wants consumers to be mindful of dishon- est door-to-door sales tactics. Though many door—to-door sales- people operate honestly and repre- sent trustworthy businesses, there are others who want to make a quick buck and move on as quickly as pos- sible, sometimes leaving customers wondering if they’ve just been scammed. . Door-to-door salespeople could be pitching anything from alarm sys- tems and landscaping services to cut- lery and food storage. Some charitable organizations conduct door-to-door fundraisers, too. Before buying anything, though, make sure to follow these guidelines as recom— mended by BBB: Ask for identification: A reputable seller won’t be afraid to provide you with all requested information, in— cluding a photo ID and business card. Inquire about licensing: Many city ordinances require door-tosdoor salespeople to have a solicitor’s li— cense. Ask the salesperson if they’ve obtained proper licensing or'checked in with City Hall. Verify the person and the busi— ness: Ask for the seller’s offer in writing and research the business after the seller is gone. Contact them directly to verify the salesperson is an employee and research the com- pany at www.bbb.org. You can al- ways wait to make a purchase. Read the contract: Don’t skip the fine print! Make sure you understand the terms and conditions before sign- ing anything. You can always say no, even in the face of high-pressure sales tactics. Know your rights: The Federal Trade Commission’s Three—Day Cooling-Off Rule gives consumers three days to cancel purchases more than $25 that are made in their home or at a location that’s not the seller’s permanent place of business. By law, salespeople should give the customer a receipt and a cancellation form that can be sent to the business to cancel the agreement. Businesses must give customers a refund within 10 days of receiving the cancellation notice. It’s OK to be skeptical: Some consumers feel bad not giving sellers the benefit of the doubt, but if some— thing seems not-quite-right, don't be afraid to ask clarifying questions or pass on the offer altogether. Don’t forget, BBB is here to sup- port consumers before and after making a purchase. Along with re- searching a business on www.bbb.org or by calling 800—646- 6222, people who have been scammed or think they may have been scammed should report their experience on our Scam Tracker at wwwbbb.org/scamtracker/us. v DEADLINES V The deadline for submitted copy and stories and all ad orders is noon on Fridays.

Thursday Few 5131in Golden Valley News NEWS Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about the different enrollment periods for Medicare? I’m planning to work past age 65 and understand Medicare of— fers Initial, Special and General pe— riods in which I can enroll. How does this work? Medicare Illiterate Dear Medicare, The rules for signing up for Medicare can be quite confusing, es- pecially if you plan to work past age 65. But it’s critical to understand the ins and outs of enrolling because the consequences of missing a deadline can be costly and last a lifetime. Here’s what you should know about Medicare’s three different enrollment periods. Initial Enrollment Period At age 65, the Initial Enrollment Period is the first opportunity that most people are eligible to enroll in Medicare. If you’re already claiming Social Security benefits at least 4 months before age 65, you are automatically enrolled in Medicare, with coverage starting the first day of month you turn 65. If you’re not receiving So- cial Security benefits, it’s up to you to enroll in Medicare either online at SSA.gov/Medicare, over the phone at 800-772-1213 or through your local Social Security office. You can enroll any time during the Initial Enrollment Period, which is a seven—month period that includes the three months before, the month of, and the three months after your 65th birthday. It’s best to enroll three months be- fore your birth month to ensure your coverage starts when you turn 65. If, ,however, you plan to keep working and have health coverage from your employer, or from a spouse’s employer, you may want to delay Medicare Part B , which covers outpatient services, and Part D, which covers prescription drugs. But first check with the human resources department to see how your em- ployer insurance works with Medicare. Typically, if your employer has fewer than 20 employees, Medicare will be your primary insurer and you should enroll. But if you work for a company that has 20 or more em- ployees, your employer’s group health plan will be your primary in- surer as long as you remain an active employee. If this is the case, you I’IIBIIII TRANSPORTATION Van or Bus Service Billings County Golden Valley County Distance of 160 Miles CALL: 701 -872-3836 Our board meets at 9:30 am, first Tuesday of each month at 22 S.

By Jim Miller You can enroll any time during the Ini- tial Enrollment Pe- riod, which is a seven-month period that includes the three months be- fore, the month of, and the three months after your 65th'birthday. don’t need to enroll in Part B or Part D when you turn 65 if you’re satis~ fied with the coverage you are get- ting through your job. But in most cases, unless you’re contributing to a Health Savings Account, you should at least sign-up for Medicare Part A, which is free and covers hospital services. Special Enrollment Period If you delay Part B and Part D past age 65, you can sign up for Medicare during the Special Enroll— ment Period. Once you (or your spouse) stop working and you no longer have group health coverage, you have eight months to enroll in Part B. But if you miss that deadline, you’ll pay a late-enrollment penalty for the rest of yoUr life. The penalty increases your premiums by 10 per- cent for each 12-month period that you don’t have coverage. The window for Part D is shorter. You must sign up for Part D within two months of losing drug coverage. If you go 63 days or more without drug coverage, you’ll pay a lifetime Golden Valley News PO. Box 156, Beach, ND 58621 (uses.
