Social Security Recipients WILL get Stimulus Checks
 
WASHINGTON, DC, Mar 31 — “It’s the ONE question nearly all Social Security recipients are asking: Will I get a Coronavirus stimulus check? If yes, do I get one even if I haven’t filed a tax return in recent years? The answers are YES and YES!, says Jeff Szymanski, political analyst at the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC].
 
The “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act” (CARES Act) passed by Congress provides for substantial stabilization of America’s economy during the unprecedented medical crisis now sweeping the country. The Act provides critically needed funding in key areas like expanded unemployment benefits and specific aid to many business segments facing extraordinary disruption, along with financial relief payments to most Americans, subject to income guidelines below.
 
“Under the Act’s provisions, Americans having a valid Social Security number will receive direct cash assistance, specifically including those who receive welfare and Social Security benefits. Relief payments will be $1,200 for individuals, $2,400 for couples, and $500 per child, for individuals with incomes at or below $75,000 ($112,500 for heads of household) and couples with income at or below $150,000. Individuals earning up to $99,000 and couples up to $198,000 will receive a reduced payment, prorated according their higher income level,” according to Szymanski.
 
The procedural details on how the approved payments will get into the hands of recipients are still being finalized, but these are the general elements:
 
·      According to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, most payments should be in the hands of recipients within three weeks
 
·      Eligibility for cash payments is based on income as reported in your most recent income tax return (note: adjusted gross income is the figure used)
 
·      If you did not file tax returns and are receiving Social Security payments, the IRS can use your Form SSA-1099 Social Security Benefit Statement or your Form RRB-1099 Social Security Equivalent Benefit Statement to send your check
 
·      If you have received a tax refund in the last two years by direct deposit, that’s where your money will be sent. If not, the IRS will mail a check to your “last known address”
 
·      The IRS will mail a notice confirming distribution of your payment, along with IRS contact information if you haven’t actually received the confirmed payment
 
·      You do not need to do anything in advance. For many recipients, the IRS has your banking information and will likely execute direct transfers to your account
 
AMAC’s sister organization, The AMAC Foundation, updates a site five days a week entitled The Social Security Report. For the absolute latest daily information on this vital program, visit www.socialsecurityreport.org. Many of this week’s headline and latest news posts on The Social Security Report deal specifically with The CARES Act (Stimulus Bill), and those seeking more detailed information will find it a valuable resource.
 
But to reiterate, reports Szymanski, “YES, Social Security recipients are eligible and need do nothing at all to receive their $1,200 per person relief payments due them. If you are required to file a tax form, it is likely that having done so already may speed up delivery of the payment.”

Recycle Plastic Caps for Pack #372 Community Project

Cub Scout Pack #372, boys and girls, have put it to a vote and they want to start collecting caps to keep them out of the landfill.

from Eric Trout, Cut Scout Leader Pack #372

What to Recycle or not to Recycle?

As of March, 2020 the NB Recycling Center is CLOSED due to COVID-19

A lot of community members of North Baltimore pull up to the recycling center south of the Village Park on Saturday mornings. Some get out of their cars while others wait for someone to help them get their recyclings out of their car. There are a half dozen dedicated men that run the recycling center every week. They take almost everything for recycling, almost everything.

Cub Scout Pack #372 has helped them out numerous times throughout the year and the boys and girls of our pack always enjoy helping sort the cans, bottles and magazines into the different bins.

This last time that a few of us were up there we learned something new. There is one item that many recycling centers will not accept, PLASTIC CAPS. Many of you probably didn’t know that. The helpers at the recycling center normally take any of the caps off of the bottles and containers before they sort them. The plastic cap is something that gets tossed in a separate bag to go to the landfill or if someone else needs them they are set aside.

Well it has been brought to my attention through one of the village’s recyclers that there is an organization that will take plastic caps and turn them into benches, trash receptacles, planters, picnic tables, etc. This organization is Green Tree Plastics located in Evansville, Indiana. Cub Scout Pack #372, boys and girls, have put it to a vote and they want to start collecting caps to keep them out of the landfill and make something useful.

Currently, I think the pack is leaning towards a bench or a trash receptacle that could be given back to the community. Below is the amount of caps that we need to collect to transport to Evansville:

6 feet long bench with back – 200 lbs caps

Trash Receptacle – 250 lbs caps

There is a fee associated with the manufacturing of each bench, but our concern right now is collecting the significant amount of caps needed. We will be setting up locations around town for you to drop off the caps, but for now continue to take them to the recycling center on Saturday mornings and the pack will get them from them. We will keep you updated on our collection and future drop points set up.

NB Schools Update – March 30

Dear Families, and Community Leaders:

Dear Families, and Community Leaders:

It is my hope that you and your families are all doing well. In the last week, Ohio residents have begun to comply with Governor DeWine’s “Stay-at-Home” Order. Also, late Wednesday, the Ohio General Assembly passed House Bill (HB) 197 that provides relief and changes necessary for the state to better respond to COVID-19 pandemic.

We are grateful to the Governor and the Ohio Senate and House for working together to respond to this crisis. In the bill there were many K-12 education-related provisions that provide school districts with more flexibility.

What does this mean to the North Baltimore Local Schools? There is a great deal of uncertainty in our own lives as well as in the schools. I wish there were much more we could plan for and share with our families. Like you, we are moving from day to day, adapting to each new change. As much as we have taken steps to cover as much as we can for students, families and employees, we are learning of those things that we can do better to help during this time.

At this time, we are continuing with online and home “packet” learning through May 1, 2020. After May 1st the Governor will reevaluate the potential opening of Ohio schools. Schooling after spring break will look the same as it has been over the last 3 weeks.

For our faculty and staff members, we have adapted to this Stay-at-Home Order. – Head custodians at each building will only perform building checks – Tech department as needed to support network and to troubleshoot – Central Office staff as needed Faculty and staff members have been working hard to strike the right balance between what is needed to maintain for further learning while respecting the challenges this creates for families.

Graduation – Class of 2020 & Next School Year There is no doubt that the hardest hit class is the senior class. The excitement, traditions and rite of passage events have all been put on hold. Mr. Kiser ( New MS/HS Principal) and the NBHS counseling staff will begin to review each senior’s status and communicate to families about meeting the requirements for graduation.

HB 197 gives principals and staff members a great deal of latitude on working with students to help with graduation. Mr. Kiser has been in talks with me in regards to possible dates for the NBHS Class of 2020 Commencement Ceremony. We appreciate your flexibility on moving the date of the ceremony. Mr. Kiser and myself hope to share with families a specific date and time in the near future.

Plans for next school year are under way. Yes, there will be a next school year, and nearly every family and student would readily admit that this is something we all can look forward to. Student schedules, class assignments, creating bus routes and securing classroom supplies are all important steps that faculty and staff members are working on today.

Stay safe and healthy! If you need anything please give me a call 419-257-3531.
