ill council settle inshine lawsuit?
BY GREG GILES
NEWS EDITOR
The spotlight will be on Venice City Council at its March 10 meeting when it's scheduled to vote on a settlement of the Sunshine lawsuit.
Attorneys for both the plaintiffs and defendants continued discussions this week. As of Friday there were no changes to the proposed settlement, said Andrea Mogensen, the plaintiffs' attorney.
"It appears the city is going to accept it," she said. "But very few things in this case have gone as anticipated. It's been an unusual ride."
Council scheduled a special Feb. 25 meeting to consider the offer but the meeting was adjourned without taking action when Council Member Vicki Noren Taylor didn't show up. That left council without a quorum to conduct the vote since named defendants Sue Lang, Mayor Ed Martin and John Simmonds cannot vote on the suit.
Noren said she will attend Tuesday's meeting.
Under the settlement the city will admit guilt to Sunshine violations and public records law violations, while individually named defendants will admit no guilt.
Council will have to vote on the settlement, however, without knowing exactly which e-mails constituted the violations it's admitting to. That's not spelled out in the proposed settlement and city officials aren't saying, at least not until the settlement is approved by

a judge.
A judge will determine attorney fees and reasonable costs sometime in the future.
A former settlement proposal by the plaintiff for $200,000 in attorney fees and $5,000 for out-of-pocket expenses was turned down in September after the city offered only $50,000. The counteroffer was rejected.
Whether the city will pay the full tab for individual council members is also undetermined.

NEWS EDITOR
The city of Venice made its first official request for stimulus funding recently, totaling $2.15 million for three "ready to go" city infrastructure projects. Then-Interim City Manager Nancy Woodley made the request weeks ago through U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan's office.
The request seeks $650,000 for downtown streetscaping improvements, mostly at the Harbor Drive and Venice Avenue intersection. Funds would come from the FY2010 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development Appropriations bill.
A second grant request tied to the same funding source totals $200,000 to purchase an emergency generator and other technology upgrades for the Venice Community Center, which serves as an emergency shelter.
The city is also seeking $1.3 million in federal funds to help finance the upgrade and rehabilitation of the city's water treatment plant. The project includes the construction of an additional degassifier to increase water production without the adverse impact of additional hydrogen sulfide odor. The rehab would also replace the membranes of four reverse osmosis tanks. Funding could come from the Interior and Environment Appropriations bill's state and tribal assistance grant account.
Process
In December, the city put together an $18 million request for stimulus funds to address infrastructure needs
but it wasn't clear at the time how those requests would be processed. The $1 trillion-plus (including interest) stimulus bill passed by Congress was ultimately structured to tap hundreds of pots of federal money using congressional offices to channel the requests. Each request is processed by the funding agency.
The wish list city staff prepared originally included $5.3 million to rehabilitate one runway at Venice Municipal Airport, but that drew protests from island residents and city council.
Aviation stimulus funds totaling $1.1 billion are being handled directly by the Federal Aviation Administration through its discretionary grant program, according to Buchanan's office.
The city could apply directly to the FAA for the funds, but that isn't likely. Council has stalled action on the runway and numerous other airport projects pending the outcome of long-range planning and a new airport master plan that scales back operations. That could take up to another year or longer.

Correction
According to Council Member Kit McKeon, no discussion of city business between him and Council Member Sue Lang took place at a meeting of the Venice Neighborhoods Coalition meeting they attended. The Gondolier Sun's Feb. 21 editorial stated otherwise.

POLICE BEAT
Skimming device found
PHOTO COURTESY OF SARASOTA COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE
This photo is of the suspect sought for attaching a skimming device into the Bank of America ATM in Venice.
Bank of America notified the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office that on Feb. 16 an ATM skimming device was used at its branch at 1270 Jaca-randa Blvd. Numerous accounts were compromised. The bank has notified all victims as well as other customers who accessed the ATM during the period in question.
Skimming devices are electronic devices that capture account information, such as the name on the account, the account number and the personal identification number embedded in the magnetic strip on the back of debit and credit cards. Once a card is swiped through a skimmer, the information contained in the magnetic strip is stored in the electronic device and eventually downloaded to a computer.
Criminals may then sell the information, use it to order items online, create new counterfeit debit and credit cards and withdraw cash.
A criminal may attach this type of skimmer directly to an ATM. Typically the criminal will insert the device into the ATM slot or place a false faceplate over the key pad and card slot. The device will either trap the card itself or the card information for retrieval at a later time. Criminals also have been known to place a hidden camera in the area by the ATM to capture customers entering their PIN numbers.
Customers should be aware of protruding ATM pads, loose-fitting faceplates or any other suspicious activity, person or vehicles around the ATM after hours. Most skimming operations occur after hours and on weekends so criminals can retrieve the information prior to normal business hours.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the sheriff's office, 861-1719, or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers, 366-8477, online at saraso tasheriff.org or by texting "TIP 109" and a message to 274637.

Venice man cited in licensing sting
BY NATALIE NEYSA ALUND
BRADENTON HERALD
Nine reputed unlicensed building contractors including one from Venice are facing jail time after a recent statewide undercover sting, Manatee County officials announced last week.
The Manatee County Sheriff's Office and the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation conducted a joint operation in which they received job proposals for construction work that required a contractor's license.
The nine suspects cited with misdemeanor charges did not have the required licenses, according to county officials. They are Dale Belden of Bradenton, Harlan Hillenbrand of Sarasota, Peter Hillenbrand of Sarasota, Scott Rosa of North Port, Herbert Prince of Bradenton, Michael J. Ford of North Port, Dan Richards of Venice, Ahmet Ajkic of Sarasota and Ronald L. Sommers of Sarasota.
Some of the suspects' phone numbers had been disconnected. The rest of them declined comment or could not be reached for
"I want to send a clear message to all the unlicensed activity going on out there: We're coming after you."
John Barnott, interim director of the county building department
comment.
Authorities with DBPR said they instructed all nine men to stop work through cease-and-desist orders issued on Feb. 23-24.
A Manatee County Courthouse clerk said the suspects are scheduled to appear for arraignment later this month.
Under state law, contracting without a license is a first-degree misdemeanor. A conviction carries a maximum jail sentence of one year and a $1,000 fine.
Unlicensed contract work has become a serious problem during the current economic downturn as many homeowners turn to the least-expensive option available,
said John Barnott, interim director of the county building department.
"We will continue to crack down, not only with the contractors but with the property owners who knowingly hire them," Barnott said. "I want to send a clear message to all the unlicensed activity going on out there: We're coming after you."
According to a sheriff's report, on Feb. 19, sheriff's Detective Dawn Atkinson and two DBPR investigators posed as project managers for a property in need of repairs in the 4400 block of 37th St. E., Bradenton.
Authorities solicited bids after they said they had already determined the men were not properly licensed to complete the needed work, including plumbing and electrical work.
The suspects were found in newspaper advertisements or on the Internet. Of 25 contractors targeted, 15 of them showed up to bid jobs at the site.
Thinking they were selected for the job, they were called back to the site to start work. Instead, they were cited and ordered to appear in court.

Symphony Board President Nancy Lacy said Wednesday. "The children love him. He was a teacher and is very dedicated to children."
Money to support the symphony's education programs came from a bequest and grants as well as from annual variety shows by local song-and-dance man Eric Watters, who produced them to benefit the symphony. Watters went so far as to teach dance routines to Schumacher, who became part of the Dum-Do-Wahs with Watters, Watters' brother, Carl, and Jim Magero.
"I can't imagine the symphony without Maestro Wesley John Schumacher with baton
in hand," local TV celebrity Vee Garry-Chiulli said. "When I look at the line drawing on the symphony program that's Wes."
Schumacher was a regular guest on Garry-Chiulli's show, "Vee on Venice."
Schumacher also was the longtime musical director of the Venice-Nokomis Methodist Church.
"I feel blessed to be surrounded by such fine musicians and the staff who are really working for the community" Schumacher said following the final concert last season. "I credit the community and the individuals that make it happen."
When Schumacher came on board, the smaller orches-
tra presented one performance of each of four concerts in the Venice High School auditorium. Today's concerts usually pack the 600-seat Church of the Nazarene for presentations of each of the season's five concerts. An annual free concert for the community fills Blalock Park; the 2008 concert drew an estimated 5,000 people.
In addition to increasing the number of concerts and performances, Schumacher also added a Sunday series.
"He is a prince of a fellow and there are so many things he has brought here and done," Lacy said. "The community certainly has a lot to thank him for."

Jenna Druzs, also a third-grader, said Beechy is "very nice and helps us with our reading and checking out our books."
Laura Breeze, advancement director with the Education Foundation of Sarasota County Inc., said Beechy fit the qualifications for the award, which include passion for teaching, commitment to the profession and meeting instructional goals. Beechy teaches English for speakers of other languages and helps with data for schools in the district matching teaching tools to learning needs.
Beechy was selected from a field of 23 elementary teachers.
"The selection committee said it was a tough decision this year; there were so many highly qualified candidates," Breeze said.
Ellington said she was extremely pleased that Beechy was chosen.
"She is an amazing colleague and a master teacher. She really knows what she is doing, is knowledgeable about pedagogy and ActivBoard technology. She teaches the students and also teaches the teachers, and she keeps the students at the center of all her decisions," she said.

Beechy received some surprise gifts with her honor from former teachers of the year, Breeze said. But huge gifts will be handed out at the Teacher of the Year luncheon April 1 at Michael's On East in Sarasota.

Nunca aprendere hablar espanol

1 .


STEPHEN BAUMANN
GUEST COLUMNIST
I will never learn Spanish.
That reality smacked me between the ears the other day when I heard a radio interview with a Spanish-speaking man.
It was gibberish to me.
For years, I've toyed with the idea of learning Spanish. I have listened to Spanish tapes, tried basic "how-to" books.
Nada.
It's clear that I am no closer to understanding this language now than I was when I was 10. Learning Spanish is never going to happen. Period.
The problem could be just me and languages. In
school, I studied German (Ach du meine Gutte, why?), but it was a constant, bloody struggle. Apparently, I don't do non-English.
There is more to it, though.
It's an easy aphorism that "We can do anything we put our minds to." When is it we first realize this is simply not true?
When did it dawn on me I would never play for the Giants? That I would not become a senator? That Harvard would not be opening its ivied doors to the likes of me?
When I couldn't get off the bench in junior high football? When I failed to get a single vote running for sixth-grade vice president? When I couldn't do better than a "C" in German?
Sooner or later it hits us: Que pasa?
Maturity is learning to deal with the disappointment of our own limitations and moving on. We sift reality from the foam of fantasy and grow up.
(Still, embedded in our brain is a speck that
clings to possibilities, however far-fetched, until the adult ego ejects the flittering fancy.) Get real!
I will never learn Spanish.
(Unless, perhaps, I am air-dropped into a remote village in Peru and left for a year, just me and the Spanish-speaking villagers. That could happen, so maybe never say never, just 99.9999 percent unlikely.)
(See? I've done it again: cracked open the door of delusion, if only .0001 percent.)
Reality checks are healthy. They keep us grounded. It's an exercise we should engage in regularly, like New Year's resolutions.
Here are some more I've come up with:
I'll never write the Great American Novel. I'll never write a lousy one either, for that matter.
I'll never learn ballroom dancing. Sorry, dear.
I'll never own a new BMW If I can afford a
Hyundai someday, I will be thrilled.
I'll never read half the books on my bookshelf. Of course, that won't stop me from buying new ones.
I'll never play guitar any better than I did at age 16. I've hit a four-decade plateau of musical mediocrity. Adios, guitar hero.
I'll never date a movie star. (Paris Hilton doesn't count.)
I'll never sail around the world. I never wanted to do that in the first place, so it's no big whup. Include on that list parachuting, deep-sea diving, dancing the hokey-pokey and bagging a charging wildebeest on a safari.
I'll never retire. That's OK. I like working. Really.
No big deal. At this point, I don't think of this exercise as limiting potential, just redefining goals.
And as they say in Barcelona, c'est la vie.

Velez has tried other sports such as softball, which was "too passive for her," and gymnastics, but "she didn't like the outfit."
"She just took off in soccer. The instinct," her mom said.
Velez still plays volleyball and will tryout for the high school team next year as well as the girls soccer team.
Velez started playing soccer when she was 5 years old and competitively since the fourth grade.
She now plays club soccer for FC Sarasota and U14 team.
"They have very good coaching," Velez said.
Velez has high aspirations when it comes to soccer, including playing in college and becoming a professional.
"She wants to be
another Mia Hamm. That is her inspiration," Betzy said.

At 4-4, Maxwell held his serve to take a 5-4 lead. Le came back and held his serve for just the second time in the set for a 5-5 deadlock.
Maxwell kept his record unbeaten by holding his serve then breaking Le's serve for the 7-5 victory.
"I just have to work on my physical strength now and start running more," Le said. "I got a little tired in the end."
Venice's only win in the boys match was at No. 4 singles as senior Chandler Grieco defeated Steven Yoder, 6-2, 6-2.
In the boys, only the No. 2 doubles match was played because of time constraints.
In the girls, Cassandra Johnson pushed Jordan Yates at No. 4 singles before losing the first set, 7-5.
"We are pleased with Cassandra Johnson's effort in her singles match," Ginn said.
At No. 3 singles, Venice got Elisa Hevia back for her first match of the season. Hevia was out with an injury.
"She is coming back so I thought she did well," Ginn said.
At No. 5 singles, Janelle King lost 8-6 in a pro set.

World War II veteran honored by the French
BY AUDREY BLACKWELL
STAFF WRITER
It was a long time coming and rather unexpected.
Robert Gilliatte, 82, was one of 16 World War II veterans to receive a French Legion of Honor medal in Oldsmar, Fla., recently for helping to liberate France from the grip of Nazi Germany in 1944.
Even though he applied for the honor, he didn't learn it existed until 2006, many years after the Battle of the Bulge.
He was humbled, proud and honored to receive the award, he said during a recent interview in his Venice home.
He was wounded at the Battle of the Bulge in December 1944, said by some to be one of the worst battles of the war, after having broken through Metz and the Siegfried Line of France with fellow soldiers, all under the direction of Gen. George Patton.
"I liked him (Patton). He could fight a war. He knew what he was doing," Gilliatte said.
Gilliatte was recognized by the United States for his efforts during the war. He holds a Purple Heart, Bronze Star, Combat Infantry Badge, European Campaign Medal, two Battle Stars for Metz and Battle of the Bulge, World War II Victory Medal, World War II Lapel Button, the Presidential Citation and Special Citation for the Liberation of France.
Although he is the most proud of his Combat Infantry Badge, because only a small percentage of soldiers actually fought on the front lines, he is very impressed with having been named "Chevalier." That is the title that accompanies the French Legion of Honor medal and equates to being a knight, according to Gilliatte.
"It (the honor) is impressive because you're recognized from another country," he said. "A little boy from Muncie, Ind., got this award for something he did when he was 18 years old," he added, shaking his head in wonder.
Medal
The French Legion of Honor medal is a French order established by Napoleon Bonaparte, First Consul of the First Republic, on May 19, 1802, according to Wikipedia. The order is the highest decoration in France and is divided into five degrees: Chevalier (Knight), Officier, Commandeur, Grand Officier and Grand-Croix (Grand-Cross).
The president of the French Republic, currently Nicolas Sarkozy is the Grand Master of the Order and as such appoints all other members.
The Chevalier badge is worn on a red ribbon on the left chest. The badge is a five-armed Maltese Asterisk (similar to the Maltese Cross) in silver, enameled white with an enameled laurel and oak wreath between the arms. The badge is suspended by an enameled laurel and oak wreath.
More than 10,000 Americans have received the Legion d'Honneur, including Army Gens. Dwight Eisenhower and Douglas MacArthur, Quincy Jones, Clint Eastwood, Steven Spielberg and American investment banker Richard Jenrette. Canadian singer

WALLET
While the current state
economy gives many people good reason to keep their wallets in their back pockets, this money-saving strategy may still take a toll on the "bottom line." The fact is that, since the 1970s, chiropractors and other healthcare practitioners have identified a syndrome known as 'Svallet sciatica." As thick wallets in back pants' pockets press on the sciatic nerve, they produce a sharp pain in the buttock that can radiate down the leg on that side, Unfortunately, the rear pockets in pants are located close to the sciatica nerve's most vulnerable areas, Fortunately, this wallet-related problem can be easily averted by relocating the wallet to another pocket or using a money clip,
P.S. Sitting on a fatwallet can also raise one hip and throw the spine out of alignment, which can potentially lead to back (and other) pain,

FINE WHINES
A spork of inspiration
BY BOB MUDGE
EDITOR
Once upon a time I believed that the spork that marvelous marriage of the spoon and fork in one convenient, space-saving utensil was the ultimate product of human ingenuity.
How naive I was.
For I now have in my possession a creation so unbelievably ingenious that it surely represents the pinnacle of man's efforts to bend the physical world to his will. Yes, I'm talking about the folding spork.
Now, I'm as appreciative of creativity as the next guy. Shoot, I even try to be creative myself on occasion. But did we really need to sink the time and money into "improving" something that we arguably didn't need in the first place?
This is, I suppose, one of those examples of supply and demand that some people are always holding up to defend the magic of the marketplace: See a niche, fill it and the world will beat a path to your door.
But who exactly saw the huge gap in the eating utensil field left by the nonexistence of the spork, and who later decided that its only flaw was that it didn't bend in the middle?
It may surprise you, as it did me, that both the thing itself and the name "spork" actually go back decades. (It can also be referred to as a "foon," but that's just silly.) I guess not everyone could be working on the internal combustion engine or the airplane, so they turned their talent elsewhere. I just don't know why it was to the spork instead of, say, a grocery cart with four functional wheels.
I kid, of course. I like the spork. I use the spork. But that's my real point. Even as I write this, American companies are churning out perfectly useful, perfectly unnecessary gadgets on which we will spend billions of dollars this year. I knowI buy lots of them, because I'm a guy.
It just seems to me we'd be better off if there were some way to channel at least some of that time and money and brainpower into something more worthwhile. I'm not even talking about a cure for cancer or an energy source to replace oil, though those would be nice. I'd settle for a biodegradable disposable diaper or water bottle.
Shoot, some days I'd even settle for that grocery cart.

JUNE CASAGRANDE A WORD, PLEASE
Years ago, I used to hang out with people who liked to say, "Would you rather be right ... or happy?" The point was that certain types (perhaps present company included) needed too badly to be right.
It didn't matter about what. Steve Guttenberg would make the best lames Bond. Corvettes are better family cars than station wagons. Kajagoogoo is going to be big. The idea was that, once you've made a statement, you had to defend it to the death even if you didn't really mean what you said in the first place. Admitting wrongness was not an option. And proving others' wrongness was a calling.
Though I don't hang around with the same people anymore (it drove me nuts how wrong they were about so many other things), I took this one piece of wisdom to heart.
I suppose that's why I've always steered clear of the language issue that irks more people than any other: misplaced apostrophes. Sure, "Merry Christmas from the Smith's" could get my goat. Sure "Sale on Sweater's" could irk me to no end. But the new-and-improved bigger person I've become can let them slide.
But the other day I saw a sign that made me change my tune. It said, "Violator's cars will be towed." I realized that whoever wrote this sign was really trying. Clearly, he or she understood that a possessive was in play but just didn't know how to use it.
For all the people who really want to get their possessives straight, I have good news. Possessives aren't hard. They're just a little confusing. Relax and take them step by step and you can get them right.
Step 1: Identify the singular and plural forms of your noun, and choose which one you want. One violator, singular. Two violators, plural. Notice
gram geared toward babies from newborn to 18 months is offered. The 45-minute program will include nursery rhymes, songs, baby sign language, a book and playtime. Space is limited. Older siblings are welcome.
Movie Matinee
On Tuesday March 10, 2 to 5 p.m., when the older brothers in a family publishing company want to give baby brother an easy author, he should feel useful, not overwhelmed. This free film tells how Beatrix Potter became a bestselling children's author.
Writer's Group
Tuesday March 10,5:30 to 7:30 p.m., here is your chance to meet with people who like to write and talk about writing. Share ideas and critiques.
Junior Bridge Club
Children in fourth and fifth grade are invited to
that there's no apostrophe in the plural. We just added "s."
Step 2: Ask whether you want to make your noun possessive and, if so, remember the two basic rules for forming possessives. For most singular nouns, add apostrophe and "s": the violator's car. For most plural nouns, just add the apostrophe: violators' cars.
Step 3: Remember the two big exceptions singular nouns like "boss" that end in "s" and plurals like "men" that don't end in "s." Plurals that don't end in "s" you treat just like garden-variety singulars. Add both an apostrophe and an "s": men's shoes. Style guides disagree on how to handle singular words that end in "s," including names. Many newspaper styles say no extra "s" after the apostrophe: Thomas' coat. Many book editors disagree: Thomas's coat. Either way, you can't lose.
So our sign that talked about the cars of multiple violators should have read violators' cars. The Christmas card greeting required a plural, Smiths. But it was not possessive it was talking about the Smiths but not about something owned by them. So "Merry Christmas from the Smiths" requires no apostrophe. The Smiths' house, on the other hand, shows possession by more than one Smith.
Don't let words that end in vowels scare you. They're no different. The Medicis are in the Med-icis' house. DeVito's family, the DeVitos, are in the DeVitos' house.
Don't get scared when you notice stuff like kids' bikes versus children's bikes, fust remember that that "kid" follows the standard rules: Add "s" to make the plural then add an apostrophe to make it possessive. But "child" is irregular. Its plural form, "children," doesn't end in "s." So to make it possessive add both an apostrophe and an extra "s."
I hope that some of you find value in this lesson because I, too, have learned a valuable lesson: I can be happy and right.

Yiddish Revival at Jewish Center of Venice
FROM THE JEWISH CENTER OF VENICE
Yiddish has experienced a revival at the Jewish Center of Venice this February with a series of four programs on Yiddish history and culture presented by local speaker, Baila Miller. Topics included Yiddish words and expressions in American speech, Yiddish literature, movies, radio programs and klezmer music. No previous knowledge of Yiddish was required to enjoy these multimedia presentations with readings, recorded music, slide shows and movie clips; however, Miller's use ofYiddish expressions evoked warm memories of parents and grandparents for many in the audience.
Yiddish, which unified Jews throughout Eastern Europe, is sometimes considered a jargon or debased form of German, However, Yiddish is actually similar to the language of medieval Germany, Miller explained. When Jews first arrived in Europe during the Middle Ages they tried to learn the German language of that time while mixing in many Hebrew words.
PHOTO COURTESY OFTHE JEWISH CENTER OF VENICE
Baila Miller presents a Yiddish program at the Jewish Center of Venice.
At first a language of kitchen and nursery, Yiddish grew into powerful literary expression during the 19th and 20th centuries, with the works of I.L. Peretz, Sholem Aleichem, and Nobel Prize winner Isaac Bashevis Singer. Miller emphasized that laughter and song are the essence ofYiddish culture, a positive way to cope with hardship and persecution. Today, the humor and soul ofYiddish stories, theater, and music are recognized and enjoyed by new generations of Jews everywhere.

Venice to celebrate Jewish holiday of Purim
FROM THE CHABAD OF VENICE AND NORTH PORT JEWISH CENTER
"Purim in Persia," this year's community Purim celebration, will feature a Persian-style dinner, games, trivia and a child-friendly reading of the biblical scroll of Esther, known in Hebrew as the Megillah, from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, March 10, at the Chabad Jewish Center, 2169 South Tamiami Trail, Venice.
In the spirit of Purim, participants are encouraged to
come in costume and be included in the competition, which will award prizes to contestants with the most innovative or funny costumes. The event is a com-munitywide program and all are welcome to join, regardless of Jewish affiliation or background.
The festival of Purim commemorates the salvation of the Jewish people in ancient Persia from Haman's plot "to destroy, kill and annihilate all the Jews, young and old, infants and women, in a sin-
gle day." The name of the holiday, Purim, literally means "lots," for Haman determined the day of the annihilation by drawing a lottery. It is observed by public readings of the Megillah, or Scroll of Esther, to recount the story of the Purim miracle, sending food gifts to friends, giving gifts of money to the poor and enjoying a festive Purim meal.
The cost is $15 for adults; $10 for children; sponsor, $180. To RSVP call 493-2770 or visit www.chabadofvenice.com.

Jokes about psychiatrist's couch arent amusing to wife
ABBY COLUMNIST
DEAR ABBY: Will you
please explain to your readers that doctors do not practice medicine 24 hours a day? Each time we reveal to people that my husband is a psychiatrist, we have to put up with unfunny jokes about how he's going to analyze them, or insinuations that all
he does is sit on a couch and ask, "And how do you feel about that?" How should we respond to these misconceptions? NOT LAUGHING IN IOWA
DEAR NOT LAUGHING: The attempts at humor are not a reflection on your husband or the psychiatric profession. They are a clue that the person may be afraid that if he or she opens up and talks with him, he may realize that he or she is "crazy."
Your question takes me back to my childhood, when our family lived in the Midwest and the first psychiatrist moved to the city and opened a practice. For months, no one would
talk to the poor man for exactly that reason.
When people "joke" that your husband is going to analyze them, he should smile and say, "Don't worry I'm off duty." (If I were in his shoes, I'd be tempted to ask, "... and how do you feel about that?")
DEAR ABBY: I am being marred in the fall. Ever since I was 11, I have had a wonderful beagle. She sleeps in my bed and I take her everywhere. She cuddles with me and has been there for me during some of the most terrible times in my life. I treat her like she's my baby.
Abby I want my dog to attend my wedding. One
of my best friends one of my bridesmaids says a dog shouldn't be allowed to attend the wedding. I say she should be. Who is right?
BRIDE-TO-BE IN ALABAMA
DEAR BRIDE-TO-BE: I have heard of dogs not only attending weddings, but also being part of the bridal party. However, whether your four-legged companion will be welcomed at your wedding may depend on how the person who officiates feels about it
and that is the person you should consult.
DEAR ABBY: I am at a loss as to how to deal with family members who constantly text others while supposed-
ly visiting us or when we're having dinner out together.
I personally find it rude, but I am reluctant to ask them to put it away. Do you have a snappy comment for me? NON-TEXTER IN ATEXTING WORLD
DEAR NON-TEXTER: What your family members are doing is extremely rude. The message it sends to you is that your company is boring and the person would rather be elsewhere. (Indeed, the person who is texting IS elsewhere.) Tell your family members that when they visit, you would prefer they keep their electronic devices off until they leave. (If
this happened while I was hosting a meal, I think I'd ask for separate check and tell them why.)
DEAR READERS: For
those of you who live where Daylight Saving Time is observed, I offer a gentle reminder. Don't forget to turn your clocks forward one hour before you go to bed tonight because Daylight Saving Time begins at 2 a.m. tomorrow.
Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

HOROSCOPES FOR MARCH 7-13
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You're usually careful to present yourself in the best light. Right now you're not worried about such things. Informality is appropriate. When you feel free and comfortable you make people laugh.
TAURUS (April 20-May
20) Though of course it's ideal to feel wonderful about yourself regardless of the reaction you elicit from the rest of the world, it might be fun to turn a few heads this week. Spiff up. Put in an extra effort and wear some color.
GEMINI (May21-June
21) You're in an individualistic mode, certain that you can do more alone than you could as a team. You're right. Your vision is so specific, only you can accomplish it your way.
CANCER (June 22-My
22) When outsiders look at your social set, they may see it as a clique. However, you do make an effort to include anyone who seems like they want to be included. Double up on that kind of an effort this week.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Even if you think you have nothing you want to sell and there is nothing you really need from people, you will be promoting yourself. You can't help but do so. You just show up and people will buy into your you-ness.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Seeing someone else live what is supposed to be your dream will kick-start your motivation. You quickly change your internal vocabulary from "that should be me..." to "What's the next step?"
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Creating a rendezvous to remember takes equal parts planning and spontaneity. Can you plan to be spontaneous? Things will work brilliantly if you make room to explore the unexpected.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). It's your aim to do good deeds that's just how you are. This week, it's important that you forget your acts of kindness once they are done. Wracking up benevolent karma is about not keeping score.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are unraveling a problem bit by bit. That's why your dreams have been so lively lately. Can you remember them? There are wise insights to be gleaned from tracking the journey of your subconscious.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You love to get the finer things in life at a bargain price. Such deals come your way if you venture out. One stylish purchase could change the way you are perceived by others.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). To worry about being rejected is a normal part of being human. Go ahead and put yourself out there anyway. You will be so happy that you followed your more courageous impulses.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Raw charisma might make people look your way, but it's refined manners that will draw others into your realm of influence. With your gracious charm you will make new and interesting friends.

Venice Gondolier Sun
One man's promise kept
t's hard to believe one year has gone by since I wrote my first column Feb. 29, 2008. That title "Welcome to First Day of Old Car Hobby Class 101" seemed to wake up the auto enthusiasts and general readership that the Sun was interested in informing people what's going on in the hobby and about some of the owners of special vehicles. It sure caught on and the articles attracted a lot of attention in collector car circles. The response and enthusiasm certainly encouraged me to, as one reader said, "Keep that stuff coming," which I have done with the backing and cooperation of the Sun staff and my wife, Lee, who takes most of the photos and types from my handwritten copy. Thank you, readers, for your support.
For you sports car fans, the photos seen here are of a 1970 Triumph TR6. The owner Robert "Bob" Taylor of Punta Gorda wrote most of the story of this auto and his personal background. It goes as follows:
"I was born and raised in Madison, Wisconsin, and had been a car nut since a kid building models of exotics and sports cars. One of my favorite models was an MG TD. My love of cars was certainly helped by my Dad, who was a part-time mechanic at our neighborhood Texaco station following (World
War II), and he let me'help out in the bays on weekends. When I got a paper route at age 12,1 bought a subscription to Motor Trend magazine and became more hooked than ever on my fascination with sports and muscle cars.
"I learned a lesson in British impracticality when my older brother, after graduating from college, bought an MGA Roadster that had sliding Plexiglas panels, which had to be opened in order to get into the car. The unlockable boot (trunk) was filled by a spare tire, which he often had to leave in his apartment so he could get a small suitcase out of sight.
"I vowed that someday I would own a 'better' British sports car that would have roll-up windows, outside door handles and a lockable boot that could easily accommodate the spare tire, a small suitcase, cooler and picnic supplies. My dream came true when Triumph rolled outtheTR6 in 1969.1 ordered one with every option I could get from Pride Motors, a
local dealer, and took delivery April 15,1970. From the day I got behind the wheel, I knew I would keep my little BRG (British Racing Green) TR until I could no longer get in and out of my pride and joy. My beautiful wife, Mary Ellen, married me and my car in 1971. (She thought I was a tad crazy when I told her I was planning on keeping myTR 6 forever!) Of course, living in Wisconsin limited my enjoyment to the warmer months of April through October. I stored myTR in the winter so that I could protect my little baby from all the de-icing chemicals and salt spread on the roadways duringthe cold season I
"After 28 years with the Wisconsin Education Association as the negotiator specialist and Mary Ellen from teaching elementary school, we retired with warm weather on our minds.
"When we moved to Punta Gorda in September 2000,1 knew that I could finally enjoy myTR year-round and I do! In all the years that I have had my little gem, I have babied it with TLC and have always had mechanics who loved my car like their own (currently Steve's Auto Shoppe takes care of me). The only 'major' mechanical problem that I have had in 38 (-plus) years was some broker
wires in the distributor cap, an easy fix. Not bad for and automobile with 75,000 miles on the odometer. By the way the speedometer has numbers going up to 140.
"Lastly, myTR survived Hurricane Charley better than most of us did!"
What an interesting story written by a true Sports car buff. Same wife and same "Wheels" both rare in this day and age.
Here are the specifications my records show for a standard 1970 Triumph TR 6: length, 156 inches; wheel base, 88 inches; weight 2,390 pounds; engine, 2,498 cc OHC 6 cylinder; horsepow-
er, 106; transmission, four-speed plus electric overdrive; performance, 0 to 60 in 10.8 seconds; base price in late 1969, $3,275.
Regarding Muscle Car City Museum in Punta Gorda, once again there has been an unexpected delay due to licensing and permitting matter. Per Rick Treworgy, owner, the new official "soft" opening will be Tuesday, with hours from
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. for now. However, they may open prior to that date. Call to double check at 941-575-5959. The diner, gift shop and parts store will be open as well.

The address is 3811 Tamiami Trail, Punta Gorda, which is the former Walmart building. Off Interstate 75, take exit 161 (Jones Loop Road) and go west to U.S. 41. Turn north 1/3 mile on the left. Admittance cost is $10 per person per visit, or $30 for an unlimited annual pass, which might prove to be the best way to go. From the interest in this first-class place, it would be advantageous to make arrangements to buy the pass now. Auto fanciers from all over are coming, thus be prompt if you don't like lines.

Timing belt should be changed by a pro
ear Tom CLICK and CLACK
have a 2002 TALK CARS
Hyundai tr^tR*^ Elantra with
97,000 miles. During the state inspection this week, the mechanic told me that I will soon need to replace my timing chain. He also said that the hose running from the pump housing to the rack-and-pinion steering has a small leak. But he said the timing chain is a top priority. My son worked as an apprentice auto mechanic in a former life, and has taken helicopter-engine repair in the military. He does all his own work on his Jeeps, past and present. He feels that he can do this job for me, and told me to buy the repair manual. Since I cannot afford the more than $900 that the mechanic wants for both jobs, I'm considering his offer. Bottom line: Should I let my son do this? And how long would my car be "in the shop" if I let him do this for me? -Arlene
RAY: Well, your car doesn't have a timing chain, Arlene; it has a timing belt. And that's unfortunate, because a timing chain which is supposed to last the life of the engine -would have been covered by your 10-year 100,000-mile warranty.
TOM: The belt, on the other hand, was supposed to be changed at 60,000 miles by you, as part of your regular maintenance. And if you neglected to change it back then, you can't reasonably expect Hyundai to cover its failure at 97,000 miles.
RAY: So the question is, Can your son handle this job? I'd say there's a 75 percent likelihood that he can do it that is, complete the job in about a weekend, and do it so your car will still run when you get it back.
TOM: Those aren't bad odds, Arlene. Our percentage is only 80!
RAY: But there are two reasons why you might not want your son to tackle this. First the parts for this job are relatively expensive, and there's at least one special tool (a puller) he may need to buy to remove the camshaft pulley. So even if you get the labor for free, this job is still going to cost you several hundred dollars.
TOM: But more importantly, because of the nature of this repair, there's a risk of catastrophic failure if he happens to do it wrong. So, in the worst-case scenario, you save $300, but he bends all of the valves, and it costs you $3,000 to rebuild the engine so you can drive the car again. Plus it costs you $300 in legal fees to write him out of your will.
RAY: So here's what we'd recommend: Bite the bullet and have the dealer (or an independent, professional mechanic, who will be cheaper but will still guarantee the work) do the timing belt.
TOM: While he's at it, make sure he changes the belt tensioner, and have him replace your water pump, too. Those are inexpensive parts that require almost no additional labor to replace while the timing belt is off. And they can ruin your engine if they fail down the road.
RAY: Then, have your son fix the power-steering leak, which certainly is well within his abilities. And make him a nice spaghetti dinner, which surely will soothe any bruised feelings. Good luck, Arlene.

Carroll and Paul are self-proclaimed golf nuts. The couple work hard all day at their high-tech jobs, so when they have time off they like to relax on the links.
Ten years ago, they bought a traditional home on a wooded lot that is very close to their favorite golf and country club, and guests are always coming by to play a round or two with the couple or just hang out and watch (more) golf on television. While most of the decor in the house has been updated over the years, the living room the biggest entertainment space in the house was left untouched. The room looked like aVictorian tearoom, complete with old finishes, outdated lighting and prim furnishings. It was so lacking in style that Paul had even haphazardly fashioned a sheet on the wall that served as a television to screen golf games. The couple desperately wanted a room that was comfort-

AFTER: Thanks to elegant fixtures, traditional finishes and comfortable furniture, this room got a casual yet elegant makeover and got out of
its Victorian rut,
able and elegant, one where they could relax and entertain friends and family. So I gathered together my crew and got set to turn "grandma's living room" into the ultimate golf watching and entertainment space. I started from the top down. I took out the room's anaglyptic paper and dated ceiling and replaced them with new drywall. I also tore down Paul's large "TV sheet," painted the whole room a rich chocolate brown and contrasted that with
crisp white trim. I then chose a rich color palette inspired by the area rug in the home's dining room of succulent raspberry, cream, chocolate and tan. Next, I divided the room into two main areas: a fireside lounge and a patio-side sitting area. In the fireside lounge, I refreshed the existing fireplace and installed a big-screen television above it. For a bit of style, I added a remote-controlled piece of abstract art that covers
the screen when not in use. I flanked either side of the fireplace with creamy white cabinetry, complete with elegant mirrored backing and a mix of glass and wood shelves. In front of the fireplace, I put a big comfy raspberry-colored sofa, two patterned chairs, a glass-topped table and a beautiful area rug in brown and cream. On the other side of the room, I created a second furniture grouping that includes a beautiful round dark wood table
with striped chairs, a desk and a huge mirror. These all sit near a whole wall of windows, which look out onto the couple's beautiful back yard. On these windows I put up wispy sheers, dummy panels in creamy linen and a 14-foot tailored valance. On the doors that lead out onto the patio, I put up a frosted, vinyl graphic film that gives the appearance of etched glass. To lighten up the space, I put in new recessed lighting, a
crystal chandelier above the table and two matching sconces by the fireplace.
After some final accents and accessories including throw pillows, lamps and artwork this room was ready. Thanks to elegant fixtures, traditional finishes and comfortable furniture, this room got a casual yet elegant makeover and got out of its Victorian rut. Now it's goodbye "teatime" and hello "tee time."
Now that's divine!
Expert tips on growing tomatoes at home
By BETH BOTTS
Chicago Tribune
Sure, lettuce is easy. Radishes are fast. But if you're only going to grow one vegetable, chances are it will be tomatoes.
Americans love tomatoes. We ate more than 20 pounds of fresh tomatoes per capita in 2007, according to the Agricultural Marketing Resource Center, and the USDA estimates we consumed almost three times that much processed into pizza, pasta sauce, ketchup, salsa and other things that come in cans and bottles.
What makes a tomato worth growing at home, though, is that it's nothing like a canned one. Even the most mundane variety, plucked warm from the vine under the summer sun, has a rich, complex flavor that sneers at supermarket tomatoes. And if you grow tomatoes at home, you can plunge into a rainbow world of tastes, shapes, colors and pedigrees.
Yet though the tomato is the first vegetable most gardeners want to try, it isn't the easiest one in the world to grow. Tomatoes can be tricky.
Let's start with basic knowledge:
TOMATOES ARE TROPICAL
Domesticated tomatoes originated far south of here, in Central America, where the days are long, sunlight is ample
throughout the year and the soil always is warm. Growing in regions where the season is shorter doesn't come naturally to them. They need considerable help.
TOMATOES ARE VINES
In their natural form, they can sprawl wildly for 10 feet or more on the ground. Some cultivated varieties have been bred for a more bushy form that's easier to control; there even are dwarf kinds for growing in pots. Butyou need to choose carefully and be prepared to cope with your variety's size and straggle.
SUN AND SOIL
The most important part of tomato growing is selecting and preparing the site before you plant. Your spot, whether garden bed or large container, must get at least eight hours of sun a day all season. It's essential to have rich, well-drained soil that includes plenty of organic matter such as compost or shredded leaves. That will let air and water flow freely and support beneficial microorganisms so the tomato roots are part of a healthy nutritious, lively ecosystem.
WATER
Consistent soil moisture not too wet, not too dry, not swinging back and forth, even when the plants get big and thirsty is key to
success with tomatoes. "How are you going to get water to the plants?" says Stephanie Turner, director of seed product at Park Seed Co. (park-seed.com). "That needs to be planned out strategically beforehand."
SPACE AND SIZE
It's easy to underestimate how large an 8-inch-tall seedling will grow to be and how heavy it will get when it is laden with ripening fruit. Allow at least 3 feet between plants; crowded plants without enough air circulation don't dry off and are more vulnerable to disease, says Duane Mieland, tomato grower for Sid's Greenhouses in Palos Hills, III, and Bolingbrook, 111., (sids-
greenhouse.com). A container must be at least 2 feet in diameter to allow enough space for a tomato plant's roots and the soil and water for it. Plan for sturdy support in the form of stakes, a trellis, a porch railing or a cage of stout wire fencing.
IT'S EASY TO GET IN TOO DEEP
Tomatoes need regular attention watering, pruning off unwanted sprouts and stems, inspecting the plants for insects and disease, tying the vines to their supports, harvesting, and dealing with wrinkles such as cucumber beetles and cutworms. If you take on too many tomatoes too soon, you may get

You have Homestead protections
ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT ADVERTISEMENT

THE 411
WHO: James W. Mallonee, RA., Attorney at Law practicing in probate, wills and trusts, guardianships, real estate and construction. LOCATION: 946 Tamiami Trail, #206, Port Charlotte, FL 33953-3108 CONTACT: 941-206-2223
Arecent case out of Dade County, Florida, answers another probate issue regarding the protections provided by Florida's Article X, Section 4 constitution concerning homestead property. The facts of the case are fairly routine and simple. The decedent owned property and devised it to one of his children and stated in his will, "when the house is sold by my son, he will divide the proceeds equally among my children. My son is not to be forced to sell the house against his will."
The decedent's son did sell the property during the course of the probate proceedings and placed the funds from the sale into an estate account pending closure of the administration of the estate. The court determined that even though the sale of the residence took place during the estate proceedings, the proceeds were protected from creditors. In essence, the son's sale of the property did not change the legal consequences of the bequest from the decedent to the heir. The court also stated that following the decedent's death, the son had legal ownership of the property and such ownership places the property into the son's name, which takes it out of reach to any expense or creditor claim incurred by or for the decedent.
The twist of this case is that the court ruled that not only were the proceeds protected from creditors, but they were also protected from attorney fees and admin-
istrative expenses incurred by the estate. It is well known in Florida that homestead property passes outside of the administrative proceedings of probate. As a result, the court specifically ruled that the proceeds from the sale of homestead property must not be subject to any of the administrative expenses of the estate, [which includes attorney fees), because homestead property is not part of the estate proceedings. The court went on to state that homestead property can never be forced to fund the administrative expenses of probate.
Historically, many practitioners believed that the funds from the sale of homestead property could be used for probate administrative expenses. However, the Dade County Circuit Court clarifies the issue that such funds cannot generically be used for such purpose.
By contrast, Florida law does provide that a personal representative can lien homestead property for those administrative expenses incurred while maintaining the property prior to and during administration of an estate. The key here is that the expenses are limited to the preservation or maintenance of the homestead property and not for such expenses as publication of the Notice to Creditors.
The message of this case should be clear, that one of the most important assets a Florida resident possesses is his or her homestead property. It is protected against creditor claims [except for taxes, mortgages and claim of liens under Chapter 713, Florida Statutes) and now it is protected against claims for administrative expenses that were not for the benefit of the homestead property
In today's current market meltdown, if you are not sure whether your property is protected against certain creditors, take the time to visit with an attorney of your choice and discuss whether your property is protected. It may well be the best consultation you make.

Too good a rate could spell trouble with IRS
DEAR BENNY:
We are in our late 70s and have moved out of our house. We are
selling the house to our daughter for approximately $338,000 and we are taking back the mortgage.
We have been told the minimal interest rate we can charge her is 1.61 percent without getting in trouble with the IRS. And, it must be renewed each year. Is this correct? Please advise. Louise
DEAR LOUISE:
You are referring to what the IRS calls the "applicable federal rate" (AFR). This is the rate that is a safe-harbor. If you go below the stated rate, you will be hit with imputed interest. The IRS breaks this down into three categories: (1) short-term loans no longer than three
years; (2) mid-term loans over three years but not over nine, and (3) long-term loans over nine years.
Let me provide you with an example. The long-term rate for February 2009 was 2.96 percent. If this will be the term of your daughter's loan, you can safely lend the money to her at 2.96 percent annual interest. (Of course, she can always pay it off sooner, and you have the right to gift her a portion of the loan on an annual basis).
If you were to lend at 2 percent, the IRS will require you to declare and pay as if you actually received the full 2.96 percent of interest. This is known
as an "imputed interest."
You can find the applicable AFR on the IRS Web site for the month in which you will be making the loan.
FIGURING TAX ON MULTIPLE SALES
DEAR BENNY:
Recently, you addressed the issue of combining the gain from a sale made under the old rollover rale with the gain on a home being sold under the new $500,000 exemption rale. The article raised two questions:
If I had a gain on a sale in 2000 of $250,000 and a gain of $300,000 on a sale in 2008, and all the residency criteria
were met, would I owe tax on $50,000 gain ($250,000 + $300,000 -$500,000 = $50,000)?
If I have, over the course of years, sold several homes under the rollover rale, and now sell my current home, do I need to add the gains from each sale to determine the total gain before applying the $500,000 exemption?
I read your column every week and cannot remember ever seeing the issue of "accumulated gains" being explained. Frank
DEAR FRANK:
May 6,1997, is the target date. For sales that took place after that date, you are eligible to exclude up to
$500,000 of your gain if you are married and file a joint income tax return (or up to $250,000 of gain if you file a separate tax return).
You can take the exclusion every two years, although you are eligible only if you have owned and lived in the house for two out of the five years before it is sold. This is called the "use and ownership" tests.
Thus, the answer to your first question is that you would owe no tax. The sales took place after the target date, and since you meet the use and ownership tests and you file a joint income tax return with

Homeowners stand to gain from energy-efficiency stimulus
By JIM DOWNING
McClatchy Newspapers
SACRAMENTO, Calif. In Santos Espinosa's small beige house near Arden Fair mall last week, a crew installed fluorescent lightbulbs, swapped out an old water heater and filled drafty gaps beneath doors.
For thousands of Sacramento-area households, this sort of work stands to be the biggest direct benefit of the federal economic stimulus package. The bill pumps at least $20 billion into energy efficiency, by far the largest such investment in U.S. history.
Many details of how the stimulus funds will be spent have yet to be finalized, but the bill outlines a bonanza for homes, businesses and the public sector.
Grants targeting low-income households like Espinosa's will jump at least fivefold. All homeowners will get a tax credit [up to $1,500) that's worth up to 30 percent of a project's cost three times
Economists say an investment in efficiency delivers a double benefit. Spending on
installation boosts manufacturers, hardware suppliers and construction workers. Lower utility bills give households and businesses more money to pour back into the local economy.
as much as is currently offered. Cities and counties will get millions to cut waste in their buildings and fund efficiency initiatives. Sacramento-area universities are hoping for grants to expand efficiency research. Local venture capitalists say the funding should help new green-tech companies get off the ground.
Economists say an investment in efficiency delivers a double benefit. Spending on installation boosts manufacturers, hardware suppliers and construction workers. Lower utility bills give households and busi-
nesses more money to pour back into the local economy. And that local spending, said David Roland-Hoist, a professor of economics at the University of California, Berkeley, delivers far more job-creating punch than money spent on energy, much of which flows out of the state to buy fossil fuels.
"It really is a potent stimulus," he said.
Espinosa, a 51-year-old drug and alcohol counselor who lives with his daughter, is hoping the efficiency gains will cut his $250 monthly utility bill by $100 or more.
"I'm pretty sure it's going to be a lot," he said. "When
I shut the heater off, (the house) just sucks the cold air in." He said he plans to spend the savings on car repairs and food.
The crew at the house works for Community Resource Project Inc., a Sacramento nonprofit that administers federal low-income weatherization funds in Sacramento, Sutter and Yuba counties.
Deputy Director Joan Graham said the group hired 20 installation workers in January to keep up with a federal funding increase passed last fall and expects to add more once it's clear how much the stimulus package will deliver.

In Espinosa's kitchen, Juan Mendoza worked his way along the wall, installing gaskets behind the cover plates on the electrical outlets to stop air leaks. Mendoza, hired last summer, said the work is a step up from his previous position installing office cubicles. "You learn so much," he said.
Graham said she received more than a thousand applications in her last round of hiring. Many applicants were experienced construction workers who in better times made more than the $13 to $18 per hour, plus benefits, that Community Resource Project pays new hires.
"There were a lot of very skilled people out there," she said. "Usually we don't get that."
The federal low-income weatherization program gets $5 billion under the stimulus bill. California will see about $216 million, according to one estimate, and the Sacramento area will likely get more than $10 million. That's enough
to cover a few thousand homes, likely only a fraction of those eligible, Graham said. The Department of Energy hasn't released income qualification standards.
Local heating and air-conditioning contractors stand to get new business from the increased homeowner's tax credit for efficiency upgrades.
"Everybody's starved for cash right now, so this is some pretty exciting stuff," said RickWylie, president of Sacramento's Beutler Corp.
New incentives, though, will have to reverse consumers' recent cutbacks in spending. The Sacramento Municipal Utility District lopped $10 million, or 22 percent, off the 2009 budget for its efficiency-incentive program after demand fell in the second half of 2008. Among other things, the program provides rebates on energy-efficient appliances and air-conditioners.

/i/f s. Elizabeth M. Hornbeck, Port C y rLy Charlotte resident and snowbird for 23 years, called the Sun asking for a daily feature called, "Why I love living here."
Ms. Hornbeck wanted to be the first, of hopefully many more, to give thanks for our many blessings. So, she begins the feature with:
"I'm 93 and live alone. I have wonderful, dear neighbors watching over me. You, the Sun, have been delivering your paper to my front door for the last 22 years. I'm sure many people will want to tell why they love living here, too."
Send the reasons you love living here to Donna Davidson, Features Editor, 23170 Harborview Road, Port Charlotte, FL 33980 or e-mail me at ddavidson@sun-herald.com. I can't promise they will run daily, although Ms. Hornbeck advises it, but I look forward to your cheerful contributions.
MAILBAG: Don't sign 4506 form

your spouse you can exclude the profit from both houses.
The answer to your second question is more complicated. Let's take this example: In 1990, you bought a house for $100,000, and sold it in 1992 for $200,000. In that same year, you bought a second house for $300,000. However, since you were able to take advantage of the old rollover rules, the $100,000 profit was deferred; although you paid $300,000 for the new house, your basis for tax purposes became $200,000 ($300,000 $100,000).
In 1996, you sold the second home for $500,000 and bought a new one for $600,000. Although it would appear on paper that you made a profit of $200,000 on this sale, because the rollover reduced the tax basis, in fact you made a profit for tax purposes of $300,000 ($500,000 -$200,000).
NOTE: For purposes of this discussion, I am ignoring any improvements that would increase your tax basis, as well as any costs that you paid associated with your purchase and sale, such as closing costs and real estate commissions.
So, in our example, your third house (that you paid $600,000) now has a tax basis of $300,000 ($600,000 -$300,000).
We are no longer using the rollover. If you subsequently sell the current house for $800,000 or less (and if you file a joint tax return and meet the use and ownership tests), you will not have to pay any profit. However, once the sales price exceeds $800,000, you will have to pay a capital gains tax on that difference and the current federal rate is 15 percent.
This example clearly shows the value and the benefits of keeping accurate
records of all improvements that you have made over the years. Every dollar of capital improvements will add a dollar to your tax basis. This also makes it clear that you should keep all of your settlement statements (HUD-1), because some of the items on those documents can be used to reduce your tax liability.
DO NOT SIGN AN OLD IRS FORM 4506
DEAR BENNY:
In a Bob Brass article years ago, he stated that if you have an undated IRS Form 4506 in the file with no lender's name on it, that is a virtual invitation to the eventual loan owner to pry into your private tax returns.
I called my loan company and they sent back this response: "As for the 4506 form, I have spoken with our legal department. The reason the 4506 form remains blank is if we sell your loan. If the page is not signed, we would not be able to provide the loan to you. They have told me that the privacy statement (opt-out document) you signed does not extend to providing information to our investors, and the privacy statement explains if and when we will disclose nonpublic personal information. We can disclose information to an investor at any time because it is part of providing the loan for which you applied."
My question: We did sign and date the Form 4506, but they left the lender name off. Is this a normal practice? Dean
DEAR DEAN:
In my opinion, there are just too many legal forms that potential homebuyers (and refinancers) have to sign in order to get a mortgage loan. And, in my opinion, the most objectionable is IRS Form 4506, entitled "Request for Copy of
Tax Return."
You and Bob Brass (my predecessor on the Mailbag) are correct. By signing this form, you have given a blank check to the holder of the document to have complete access to your federal income tax return(s).
Which year? Well, paragraph 7 of the form specifically asks the signer to list the tax years. But most mortgage lenders want you to leave this blank so that they can fill in the years if they ever want or need to have access to your tax returns.
In fact, the IRS specifically states on the form that "if you are requesting more than eight years or periods, you must attach another Form 4506."
The IRS makes it clear on the top of the form that you must "not sign this form unless all applicable lines have been completed." Once again, lenders want you to leave this form blank and just write your Social Security number and sign your name.
1 understand the reason why lenders insist that you sign the form. There are fraud cases, and lenders want to be able to investigate your situation if they feel that you have misled them about your income, assets and expenses.
When I conduct real estate closings, I generally fill in the year that settlement takes place in paragraph 7. Thus far, no lender has ever challenged this.
But the bottom line is that if you want that mortgage loan, you have to comply with all of the lender's requirements, be they reasonable or not.

The mimic octopus scares off predators by imitating dangerous sea creatures. It spreads out its arms to look like a lionfish, or pulls them together to look like a flatfish. It can also bury itself in the sand, leaving two of its tentacles showing. Predators mistake these for sea snakes!
Tropical stick insects change color to imitate leaves. During the day, they remain camouflaged and completely motionless.
jebut$TMMI
Chameleons are lizards that can change their skin's color and pattern to blend into their surroundings. Can you find any examples in today's newspaper about a person who is adapting to a new situation or environment? People that can easily change to fit new situations are often referred to as "chameleons."
