The History Channel • On Feb. 12, 1809, Abraham Lincoln is born in Hodgenville, Ky. As an adult, Lincoln's sense of humor may have helped him hide recurring bouts of depression. He admitted to friends and colleagues that he suffered from intense melancholia and hypochondria most of his adult life. • On Feb. 10, 1846, Brigham Young leaves Nauvoo, Ill., and begins leading 1,600 Mormons west across the frozen Mississippi River to a temporary refuge at Sugar Grove, Iowa. It was their first stop in a westward migra- tion that eventually brought them to the Great Salt Lake in Utah. By fall nearly 12,000 Mormons had made the trek. • On Feb. 7, 1914, the silent film "Kid Auto Races at Venice" premieres in theaters, featuring actor Charlie Chaplin in his first screen appearance as the "Little Tramp." Movies converted to sound in the late 1920s, but Chaplin held out until his film "Modern Times" (1936). • On Feb. 13, 1945, a series of Allied firebombing raids begins against the German city of Dresden, reducing the town to rubble and killing as many as 135,000 people. It was the most destructive bombing of the war. Little, if anything, was accomplished strategically, since the Germans were about to surrender. • On Feb. 9, 1964, the Beatles are introduced to America on "The Ed Sullivan Show," singing "All My Lovin'," "Til There Was You" and "She Loves You." It is estimated that 73 million Americans watched the show. • On Feb. 8, 1983, gunmen steal the champion Irish racehorse Shergar from a stud farm owned by the Aga Khan in County Kildare, Ireland. The 5- year-old thoroughbred stallion was worth $13.5 million. Despite a high- ly publicized search by authorities, Shergar was never seen again and no ransom was paid. • On Feb. 11, 1990, in a major upset, Buster Douglas defeats Mike Tyson, the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, in 10 rounds at a box- ing match in Tokyo. The loss to Douglas was the beginning of a long, downward spiral for Tyson, which included jail time and boxing license revocation in Nevada.

I -- II L-----SS-E ] LAFF- A- DAY I)00IRECTORY TO By David Uffington I1 II The amount you pay for Social Security will tem- porarily drop for 2011, In the past you and your employer have both paid 6.2 percent of your annual gross income into the Social Security fund. This year your portion goes down to 4.2 percent. Here's how that looks in real numbers: --If you make $30,000, your Social Security tax will fall from $1,860 to $1>260, thus saving you $600. That's $50 per month. --If you make $40,000, your Social Security tax will fall from $2,480 to $1,680, thus saving you $800. That's $66 per month. --If you make $50,000, your Social Security tax will fall from $3,100 to $2,100, thus saving you $1,000. That's $83 per month. --If you're self-employed you have been paying 12.4 percent of your income to Social Security. For this year, that will drop to 10.4 percent. The government, one assumes, wants you to spend that extra money out in the marketplace to help the economy get back on its feet by creating other jobs. A better plan is to use it to help yourself. Here are a few things you can do with that (albeit small) amount of money: • If you have credit-card debt, pick a card and in- crease your monthly payment by that amount, per- haps even rounding up to the next $10 increment. • Catch up on past due accounts that have been costing you extra in fees and interest. • Add the extra as a principal payment on an exist- ing loan, thereby shortening the life of that loan. • If you habitually run up debt at Christmas, once that debt is paid off, put the extra money in a Christmas savings account at the bank. By the end of this year you'll have enough to pay cash for all your purchases. Whatever you do, don't take on new payments on the assumption that you'll continue to have that increased amount in your pocket over the long haul. NOTE: If you usually file early and itemize your deductions, the Internal Revenue Service doesn't want your tax return yet. It's not ready. The reason is that computers haven't been programmed to accom- modate a few new changes in laws. Aim for the second half of February. If you use computer soft- ware, be sure to get the latest updates. (c) 2011 King Features Synd., Inc. Weekly SUDOKU I-Id i Cleveland, Ohio L led :" www.g/eatbJghomeandgarden.com f.

World rights reserved. "You give that package right back to the lady!" SENIOR NEWSLINE By Matilda Charles Social Security numbers were first issued to identi- fy those who were getting benefits. Now it's become a national ID number, and far too many people have access to it. Theft of Social Security numbers is big business. With that little number, plus your name and ad- dress, thieves can steal your identity and take your money or run up debt in your name. At the very least, it can mean spending untold hours straightening out the mess when your credit report has errors. With that number, someone can get medical services in your name, and at your expense, or refinance your mortgage and take the profits. For those who've put together a nice nest egg, it can mean losing every- thing you've worked for over the years. McAfee, a computer security company, put togeth- er a list of the Top 10 places where our Social Securi- ty numbers are most likely to be stolen. Starting with the riskiest places, they are: universities and colleg- es, banks and financial institutions, hospitals, state governments, local governments, federal govern- ments, medical businesses that provide equipment or billing services, nonprofit organizations, technol- ogy companies, medical insurance and medical of- rices. While it's often necessary to give your Social Secu- rity number to get services, cut your risk by being careful. Send for a free copy of your credit report every year to make sure it doesn't have errors. Invest in a shredder, or share one with friends. Shred any mail (unless you need to file it away) that has your personal information on it. If you're hunting for a job, don't automatically put your Social Security number on the application. Those applications often end up in dumpsters be- hind the business. Instead, wait until they hire you and provide the number to the appropriate person in Human Resources.
