On the Go With Joe Hutter

Yes, time does go by. 2010 will be gone in a few days.

Recently 50+ Lifestyles became a magazine. What do you think of the new magazine?

This column usually mentions things you need to be on the lookout for, so that you don’t lose what you have saved during your lifetime. With buying items over the internet, remember to only do business with sites that display the “lock” security symbol, which indicates they are a secure website.

If you want to give to a national charity, check the charity out on the Better Business Bureau “wise giving” site at Some charities do not release information of how much goes to programs and the amount their CEO receives annually for their salary. Many CEO’s make over $300,000 a year and some make close to a million dollars.

Now a little off the main topic of S.A.L.T. programs….
50+ Lifestyles for seniors has been around since 1987. It has always been like a newspaper. No matter what it looks like or feels like, it is like a person – what is in the inside is what
really counts. If you read 50+ Lifestyles from cover to cover, there are many columns and advertising that can help you.

In the last month’s issue, you could read about what to do when a loved one passes away, information from the Iowa Driver’s License Bureau, Social Security information, advice on getting hearing aids, programs on home care, and on and on. The publishers of the 50+ Magazine did not encourage me to write this, but if you know of a business or location at which you would like the magazine to become available, let them know by email at

Enjoy all your holiday activities and from our Senior And Law enforcement Together (S.A.L.T.) group, have a very Merry Christmas and a great and happy New Year. We meet again on January 26th at CASI. For more information call the Scott County Sheriff’s Office for Pam at 326-8217.
Take care.
