For many folks, the Christmas season is all about giving back to the community. For the attorneys and staff at Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, that sentiment holds true every single year. I’m proud of just how much everyone at the firm dedicates themselves to giving back in some way. In fact, giving back is a big part of our overall culture within the firm. We send out internal surveys asking members of the teamwhy they enjoy working here. One answer I see time and time again comes back to helping people and giving back within the community. I’m glad we’ve been able to create a firmwhere everyone wants to be involved locally. It’s no secret that when you give back to the community, whether through volunteering or donating, you leave a lasting effect. Not only do you help people who genuinely need it, but you set a positive example that others can follow. What does that look like? Throughout the year, the firm sponsors a Blessing Box near the office. A Blessing Box is a small pantry that people in need have free access to. It’s like a small food bank, and all year long, members of our team do what they can to ensure the Blessing Box is stocked with food and toiletries.

it’s a small way to keep people safe during the holidays.

As a firm, we also adopt “littles”with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Through this program, we buy Christmas gifts for kids who might not otherwise get anything during the holidays. It’s another small way to give back that can often have a lasting impact on that child. This small gesture can really make their Christmas. These are just a few examples of how our team gives back during the holiday. Chances are you’ll run into one of our teammembers ringing the Salvation Army bell. We’re also out serving up food at local homeless shelters, building ramps for disabled folks, and supporting any number of food or clothing drives. If there’s an opportunity to give back, our team is going to take it! I can’t say enough about how proud each and every one of themmakes me. Our staff genuinely loves being a part of the community and making a difference. They certainly epitomize the seasonal spirit of giving. With that, and from all of us at Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin, we want to wish you a Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a wonderful NewYear.

Another yearly tradition is to ensure people get home safely after a night of fun, which often includes drinking. We sponsor Safe and Sober Cab Rides and post signs at establishments —

bars, pubs, and restaurants —with the contact information of a local cab

Sometimes we get a little too much of the sweet stuff. Between Halloween and New Year’s Day, candy is everywhere. It’s at home, at work, and on store shelves. Then, as the year comes to an end, many people start thinking about eating right and losing weight. When those are your New Year’s resolutions, you have to do something about all the leftover candy so it’s not around come Jan. 1.

Here are a few ways to get rid of your leftover candy ASAP. Donate it. While you may have an abundance of sweets, not everyone does. Consider donating wrapped and packaged candy to your local food bank or other nonprofits, including local homeless or women’s shelters. You can also look into donating candy to nearby schools. Many teachers will gladly take candy off your hands to reward students (or themselves) with treats throughout the rest of the school year. Bake with it. Whether you have an excess of candy corn or candy bars, you can bake with your sweet leftovers. The next time you make chocolate chip cookies, swap out the chocolate chips for candy corn. Or the next time you make brownies, chop up leftover candy bars and add them to the batter. From peanut butter cups to

mint patties, there are so many different types of candies that can take traditional baked goods to the next level. Store it. Although not great for you, candy is fine to eat in moderation. A good way to moderate your holiday treat intake is to store your leftover sweets in the freezer. That way, you can pull a little from your supply each month to make sure you aren’t overdoing it. That said, be sure to check the expiration dates on all candy you save.

After an Accident You’re Not At-Fault —Will Your Premium Go Up?

When it comes to auto insurance, nearly everyone has a deductible. This is the amount your policy requires you to pay toward the cost of any repairs whenever those repairs are needed — often after a collision. In most cases, the higher your deductible, the lower your premium is for collision coverage. All too often, people worry about the cost of their premiums when they make claims. They are concerned their premiums will go up, whether or not they are at fault. Some people even avoid filing a claim and continue to drive a damaged vehicle or pay out-of-pocket.

premium should not increase if you were not at-fault. If another driver runs into you, this does not demonstrate that you are an unsafe driver and should not reflect what you pay for insurance.

If an insurance company raised the premium of the driver who is not at fault, they would lose customers. It’s a horrible business practice and poor marketing. There is always another insurance company out there willing to take your business.

However, there is no guarantee that your insurance carrier won’t raise your rates, even if you are 100 percent not at fault. If this happens, open a dialogue with your carrier to see if you can avoid the rate increase. Alternatively, start shopping around for a new insurance provider. Ask any potential new carrier if they raise rates on their customers following an accident, when they are not at fault.

When you are in a collision, you should do what you can to get the insurance information from the other party, and you should file a claim. Realistically, your

It remains lit from November to early January, so you have plenty of time to check it out.
