Page Ten N/Warren Town and County News Thursday, August 8, 2019 Start Smart Conference to Focus on Financial Strategies for Your Farm The Coalition to Support Iowa's Farmers (CSIF) and Accu-Steel Fabric Covered Buildings will co-host Start Smart: Tools for Beginning Farmers Conference on August 15th from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m. at Penningroth Media Center in the Cattle Barn at the Iowa State Fair. The conference features a dynamic line-up of speakers who will help livestock farmers under-stand the financial programs available to them, provide strategies on ways to manage risk, and provide insight on how to develop a business plan and set up a farm business. There will also be two expert panels moderated by Delaney Howell, host of Iowa Public Television's Market to Market; one that will provide an ag marketing outlook and the other will answer questions about financ-ing and the lending process. "The coalition received a number of calls from livestock farmers over the past year - many from young people wanting to get into farming, but weren't sure where to start or how to secure financing," said Brian Waddingham, executive director of CSIF. "We also heard from many well-established livestock farmers looking for assistance to diversify their farms due to ongoing low commodity prices and relatively high land costs. This event will provide insight to help all of Iowa's livestock farmers better understand ways to manage risk and succeed in the long-run." Registration for the event is free if completed by August 14th; however, participants will need to purchase admission tickets to the Iowa State Fair. For more information about the conference and to register, visit www.supportfarmers.com/startsmart or call 1-800-932-2436. Space is limited. The Coalition to Support Iowa's Farmers was created by farmers to help farmers raise livestock successfully and responsibly. It's a joint partnership involving the Iowa Beef Industry Council, Iowa Cattlemen's Association, Iowa Corn Growers Association, Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, Iowa Pork Producers Association, Iowa Poultry Association, Iowa Soybean Association, Iowa Turkey Federation, and Midwest Dairy Association. The non-profit, non-partisan organization provides assistance to farmers at no cost. CSIF does not lobby or develop policy. Farm families wanting a helping hand can contact the coalition at 1-800-932-2436.

Vos ; Fraud Alert: Genetic (DNA) Testing Scam The Office of Inspector General (OIG) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has issued a fraud alert warning the public about a preventive genetic (DNA) testing scare. Iowans have reported being contacted about this testing scare. "Scammers are promoting a so-called free genetic (or DNA) test to Iowans on Medicare. People are falsely told that Medicare will pay for a preventive genetic test to check for cancer," said Kris Gross, director of the Iowa Senior Medicare Patrol. "Iowans are being targeted in a wide variety of ways including at health fairs, door to door, and through telemarketing calls." Scammers ask for a cheek swab to send to a lab for analysis. The individual is then asked for their Medicare number to cover the costs of the test. Don't become a victim to this scare. Medicare does not cover genetic testing, except in very rare circumstances and such a test must be medically necessary and ordered by your own doctor. 'WValk away from this scam and hang up on any calls that attempt to secure your Medicare number," encourages Gross. Iowans can report suspected Medicare fraud, including the genetic (DNA) test scam, to the Iowa Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP) by calling 1-800-351- 4664 (TTY800-735-2942) or visiting https:// iid.iowa.gov/iowa- smp-fraud-reporting-form. More information regarding current scams can be found at http://smp.iowa.gov. The Senior Medicare Patrol is a service of the state of Iowa Insurance Division. Attorney General Bars 'Pyramid Scheme' That Cost Iowans $51,000 A Florida man accused of operating a "pure pyramid scheme" and taking more than $51,000 from older Iowans must make refunds to the victims and .stop his solicitations under a settlement with the Iowa Attorney General's Office. Attorney General Tom Miller accused Jhon Palacio, a.k.a. Richard Diamond Sr of Lake Worth, FL, and his company, Reliable Data Solutions, Inc. (DBA "RDS Success Team"), of violating the Iowa Consumer Fraud Act and Older Iowans Act. Palacio sent Iowans verbose mailers that were headlined "$5,000 a week cash and gold generator!" For an investment of at least $750, the mailer recipient could become an "independent dealer", and the company promised to send out more mailers for him or her. Every time someone joined the offer, the recipient was promised to receive $250 and a gram of gold =to infinity". ' elcome to the easiest money-maker on the entire face of the planet," the mailer read. Consumers paid thousands of dollars to Palacio and received no returns, according to interviews of some of the participants conducted by the Attorney General's Office. Palacio lied to consumers by claiming that participation in the scheme would result in "guaranteed income", and his actions financially harmed older Iowans in particular, the Attorney General alleged. Palacio denied the allegations but agreed to a consent judgment. He sent out 6,000 pieces of mail to at least 300 Iowans documents show. At least 17 Iowans gave him more than $51,000 and most were age 60 or older. As a result of the consent judgment, Palacio is prohibited from participating in any business operation involving mail or phone solicitations in Iowa. He agreed to refund $43,017.50 to consumers. (The balance had been previously refunded to a consumer in response to the Attorney General's investigation of Palacio.) He also agreed to pay $5,000 to the state's Consumer Education and Litigation Fund. Seniors are frequent targets of scammers, according to a U.S. Senate report released in January. The Special Committee on Aging found that older adults lose an estimated $2.9 billion each year to financial scams. Businesses that commit fraud against the elderly can face additional civil penalties under the Older Iowans Act. If you receive questionable mailings or calls, contact the Iowa Attorney General's Office on their website at www.IowaAttorneyGeneral.gov, by e-mail at consumer@ag.iowa.gov, or by phone at 515-281-5926 (outside the Des Moines area, call toll-free: 888-777- 4590). Hooking Summer Catfish Fishing for catfish is a summer tradition for many Iowa families. Invite someone new to come along this year to share the fun and memories! When the bite for other fish slows down in the heat of Iowa summers, you can always count on channel catfish. They are biting in every stream of any size, in all lakes, and many farm ponds. "Catfish will bite most of the time, no matter what the water temperature," explains Daniel Voge]er, Iowa DNR fisheries technician. "They're just as available from shore as boat." Bring along two coolers with ice, one to keep your bait firm and fresh and another to keep your catch cold and preserve that great taste. Catfish have a great sense of smell and taste. Try prepared dip baits, chicken livers, minnows or chubs, green sunfish, bluegill, crawdads, frogs, night crawlers, or dead, but fresh, gizzard shad. Lakes stratify, or form layers, this time of year, with cool, oxygen- deprived waters sinking to the bottom. Do not fish in water deeper than eight to ten feet. Look for areas with vegetation, brush piles, or rock. Fish the upper ends of the larger reservoirs where the water is shallower and baitfish like gizzard shad gather. Use baits fished on the bottom or suspended off the bottom with a bobber and let current or breeze move the bait to find active catfish. Iowa rivers are loaded with catfish. Look for fish around downed trees and brush piles, but don't overlook rock piles or other objects that deflect water and form a current seam. Position your bait just upstream of brush piles so the scent of the bait is carried down-" stream into the structure c. to draw the catfish out. Anchor the bait with a heavy weight so it doesn't drift into snags. If fishing the big rivers, try upstream and on the tips of wing dykes and wing dams on the Missouri and Mississippi rivers.
