Always put stickers in the shredder between two layers of 3-4 plain paper sheets. That's for future.
Now I would suggest getting some "Label Off", "Label Killer" or similar spray product, that will dissolve the glue, spraying the cutters and stuck labels with it several times, trying to remove them with tweezers or thin long-nose pliers. Be gentle, try not to blunt the cutters' edges.
When you get rid of the labels, spray more of the stuff on the cutters and clean them with a brush, to remove glue residue between them. Do it several times, rotating the cutters to remove the glue all around.
Then lubricate the cutters as per manufacturer's recommendations.

What is the recommended tire pressure for a 2009 Saturn Aura? It has 40 PSI on the tires, but that sounds high.

You are right. That is to high. 40psi is most likely the maximum pressure that those tires can handle. Your car has a sticker on it somewhere. This sticker will tell you the proper air pressure for your tires. On a 2009, your sticker should be in good, readable condition. Common places for the sticker are: in the jamb of the driver's door, on the inside of the trunk lid, or inside the fuel filler door. If you cannot find the tire pressure sticker in one of these locations, it should also be in your owner's manual. Those numbers should be near the rear of the book in a section called 'specifications' or something similar. Good luck. Proper tire pressure is extremely important is winter weather.

My swingline electric stapler model 42130 is jammed is there a manual release button the one on the back doesnt work

Taking the stapler apart is a complex task if you can figure how to do that.To dismantle the stapler, slide back the top, remove two small screws on both sides, six on the bottom, four of the screws are under the sticker so you must peel off the sticker, you must also remove the sticker on top. There two tiny shinny screws at the bottom once you are inside. Now you have access to more screws you can take off to get to the staples place where the jam is. Watch cables where they are plugged to in case they come off. If you are are a mechanical technician or technically inclined you might be able to fix this yourself but you must be very patient.
