GAME & FISH HUGH GRANT NINE Three Hunter Accidents Re- ported in 1994 Hunters in Wyoming reported three accidents involving firearms during the 1994 season. Unfortu- nately, one resulted in the death of a hunter. The three accidents reported fall well below the state's I 0-year av- erage ofslx. The one fatality equals the 10-year average. The one fatal accident occurred when two Colorado elk hunters strayed about 300 yards into Wyoming. Fog and snow ham- pered visibility as the hunters moved in heavy cover. A 53-year- old father fired the shot that killed his 32-year-old son. The victim was not wearing blaze orange clothing. Both non-fatal accidents Involved antelope hunters. An Illinois hunter shot herself in the right foot while in a vehicle. She lost her fifth toe. A Laramie antelope hunter was crawling through some brush when his rifle apparently became tangled in the brush. He was shot In the thigh. According to Hunter Education Coordinator LarryAdams, the three Incidents reported In 1994 high- light some the most important safety rules. First, hunters must be absolutely sure they can iden- tify the target even in fog, snow or poor light conditions. Adams emphasized that anyone who reads hunter accident reports is Impressed by the number of times a vehicle is mentioned. "Whenever a hunter Is In a vehicle or approaches a vehicle, the action of the rifle should be open. Loaded firearms around vehicles should wave a red flag In the mind of any hunter," Adams said. The third incident occurred be- cause the rifle was pointed at the victIm. "If the muzzle Is always pointed in a safe direction, " Ad- ams said, "no one will get hurt even ifaU the other safety rules fail and a shot is fl~.ed.,, Adams said that despite these three accidents, hunting remains a very safe sport, particularly in Wyoming. %Vyoming residents have one of the highest hunter participation rates in the nation, and Wyoming is also very popular with hunters throughout the country," Adams said. "Safety awareness is a vital part of that popularity." ASKTHE GAME & FISH Q. How can I get into a hunter safety course before next fall's hunting seasons? A. As you are probably aware, hunter safety courses in Wyoming are taught byvolunteer instructors. This means that the scheduling of these courses is done entirely by the volunteers - not the Game and Fish. For upcoming courses in your area, you can contact your local game and fish regional office for names of instructors in your town. You can then check with them to see when they plan on holding a course. You can also contact the G&F Cheyenne headquarters and put your name on a list for the next course in your area. When the Instructor notifies the G&F of plans to hold a course, the G&Fwill send the instructor your name. Keep in mind that hunter safety is required of anyone born on or after Jan. l, 1966 and is also required of all hunters regardless of age, before participating in Grand Teton Na- tlonal Park or the National Elk Refuge special hunts. Regional office numbers are: Sheridan, 672-7418, 1-800-331 - 9834. Casper, 473-3400, 1-800-233- 8544. You can get Both Social Security and SSI by Vickie Honzel Social Security State Manager in Cheyenne Most people are aware that indl- viduals can receive Social Security benefits. Most people are aware that individuals can receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. But many people may not know that under certain circumstances, individuals can get both Social Security and SSI ben- efits at the same time. Let me give you an example of how a person can get both Social Security and SSI benefits at the same time. I'll change the name of the person involved but use her case to ex- plain the programs. Helen Trump, a 65-year-old do- mestic worker, came in to file for her Social Security retirement HAVE YOU CHECKED YOUR HEALTH INSURANCE RATES Monthly Premiums LATELY? 25-Year-Old 35-Year-Old 45-Year-Old Deductible Male Female Male Female Male Female $250 $48.50 $87.50 $65.50 $109.50 $98.50 $130.50 $500 $42.50 $75.50 $56.50 $95.50 $84.50 $112.50 $1000 $37.50 $67.50 $49.50 $83.50 $73.50 $97.50 Rates may very depending on underwriting and company acceptance CALL Security Insurance TODAY 283-1182 benefits. Although she worked regularly for the past 40 years, she never earned much money and sometimes her employers failed to withhold and pay Social Security taxes for her. Those two factors coupled to make her Social secu- rity benefit low--only $366 per month. In Helen's case, the Social Secu- rity claims representative talked to her about the SSI program. The representative explained that SSI pays individuals who are age 65 or disabled indMduals under age 65. In addition, to qualify for SSI, a person must have limited Income and "resources." Resources are things like savings and checking accounts, bonds, and anything else that can be converted Into cash. The home In which you live and the car you drive usually do not count as resources. Helen's only income was her $366 Social Security check. (SSI con- slders her Social Security benefit "unearned" income.) Helen rented a small apartment, had a small bank account and an old car. Since Helen had limited Income and few resources, the claims representa- tive Immediately helped her file for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). As the name suggests, SSI is designed to "supplement" a person's Income up to a certain level. Here in Wyoming, an indi- vidual who has unearned Income up to $466 monthly limit can get SSI. (Some states add to the federal SSI payment level so payment lev- els may be higher In those States.) Now, Helen will receive two ben- efit checks every month--$100 from SSI and $366 from Social Security. Further, since Helen qualified for SSI, she can get Medicaid which will supplement her Medicare coverage. Even ff she did not get Medicare costs through the "Qualified Medicare Beneficiary {QMB} program. {NOTE: To simplify the example in this article, we added the $20 "disregard" to the SSI limit.) {Note: If you hire someone to clean your house, work in your garden, etc., you are legally required to pay Social Security taxes for the per- son. Otherwise, that person will probably face the same situation as Helen Trump--years of hard work and a low retirement benefit that does not reflect her true earnings.) "Futeball and golfe" were banned by the par- liament of King James II of Scotland in 1457 because their popularity threatened the practice of archery for national defense. The Roman Empire lasted over 700 years and at its height extended from northern Britain to the Persian Gulf. 4-H & FFA MEMBERS invite your support of the JUNIOR LIVESTOCK SALE 7P.M.
