They have signed a lease effective July i with the FRC Foundation, owner of the facility, to take over op- eration of the community fitness center. Merle Trueblood, FRC's athletic director who has been given the long-term oversight responsibility for the business, quickly assembled a citizens adviso- ry group to lay plans for the future of the center. Their first order of business is to hold a commu- nity forum set for June 30 at 5:30 p.m. in Plumas Bank's credit center at 32 Central Ave. (behind Safeway). The group is seeking input from anyone interested in the facility and how it can better serve the community with its equipment, classes and schedules. Past, present and prospective fu- ture members are invited to attend. The facility will be closed July 1-11 for extensive renovations and cleaning. It, along with the pool, will reopen July 12. For more information or if you would like to serve on the steering committee, call Trueblood at 283-0202, ext. 295.

Just ask the folks who retired, planning on the easy life with their Social Security benefits and retirement nest eggs. When the economy flopped, many found that nest egg wasn't enough and went back to work. What happens to their Social Security benefits? There is an earnings test: how much you can earn while getting benefits. For those retired before the normal retirement age, the test starts at $14,160 of earned income; for every $2 earned over that, the individual loses $1 of benefits. At normal retirement age, a person loses $1 of benefits for each $3 earned. At age 70, there is no earning limit. Money lost in reduced benefits will come back in bigger cheeks later. The Social Security Administration does not trim each check by a certain amount. Rather, benefits are withheld until the overage is covered (they ask how much you'll make). In the first year, what you earned before you applied for benefits does not count. Should you apply for Social Security? Did you?
