COLUMBUS - Millions of toys are out there, and hundreds of new ones hit the stores each year. Toys are supposed to be fun and are an important part of any child’s development. But each year, scores of kids are treated in hospital emergency departments for toy-related injuries.

While toy shopping for your favorite child or children, choose toys to suit the age, abilities, skills and interest level of the intended child.

“Simple toys that stimulate imaginative play are often better than the more expensive, electronic toys,” said Sarah Sams, M.D., associate director for Grant Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program, Columbus, Ohio.
Social Security has good tidings this holiday season

As the holidays approach, Social Security has good tidings to share with Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) beneficiaries: they will receive a 5.8 percent increase in benefit payments beginning with the January payments.

The 5.8 percent Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) will begin with benefits that over 50 million Social Security beneficiaries receive in January 2009. Increased payments to more than 7 million SSI beneficiaries will begin Dec. 31.

Social Security and Supplemental Security Income benefits increase automatically each year based on the rise in the Bureau of Labor Statistics' Consumer Price Index for Urban Wage Earners and Clerical Workers (CPI-W), from the third quarter of the prior year to the corresponding period of the current year. This 5.8 percent increase is the largest since 1982.
