Miller in area, tours downtown Chipley

Managing Editor

Republican U.S. Rep. Jeff
Miller was in town Thursday
and Friday, not only to get some
feedback from community lead-
ers and citizens, but also to give
updates on a number of issues.
Miller was in Bonifay Thursday
before visiting District 3, Florida
Department of Transportation and
Pals Park. Miller and Gary Clark
planned a morning of turkey hunt-
ing before making a walking tour
of Chipley.
Miller, who represents the First
District in the House of Represen-
tatives, met with interim District
3 Director Larry Kelley and other
DOT officials and discussed sev-
eral transportation issues, includ-
ing obtaining right of way, work
to repair major storm damage in
recent years, and other issues.

Miller also got an overview of

Miller noted the increasing

rate of development throughout
Holmes and Washington coun-
ties. "Folks are looking at this
place every single day," he said.

Miller said that in several cases
developers are looking at major
projects of 3-4,000 acres with all

Manatee County Sheriff Wells retires

62-year-old Charlie Wells
closed the last chapter of his 41-
year law enforcement career April
2 by announcing his retirement.
He had held the post of Sheriff of
Manatee County since his election
in 1984.
He enjoyed four re-elections
during his tenure as the longest-
serving sheriff in Manatee County
While spending his last morn-
ing in office cleaning out his desk
and getting a haircut, he made his
last official statement as sheriff.
"It's just time for me to do some-
thing else," Wells said.
Prior to becoming sheriff, Wells
served 15 years as a Florida

Highway Patrol Trooper. He was
also an investigator with the state
and was
chief of
police in

time in

office, an ie
new jail
was built
and the
agency y Charlie Wells
nationally accredited in both cor-
rections and law enforcement.
Among the programs started dur-

ing Wells' tenure were the School
Resource Deputy Program and
Victims First.
Wells, known to his family as
Charlie Brown, was born in Boni-
fay Nov. 20, 1944, and lived on
the family's Washington County
farm until the age of 12.
He began his schooling in Ver-
non. His parents, John and Willie
Mae Bush Wells, moved to Tampa
in 1956.
The story of Wells is told in
the recently printed Heritage of
Washington County book under
the heading of "One of Washing-
ton County's Favorites."
The retiring sheriff and his
wife, Leslie, had five children.
The oldest daughter, Michelle,
was killed at the age of 19 when

she was struck while walking on
the Courtney Campbell Cause-
way in Tampa. Sheriff Wells had
the honor of pinning the Florida
Highway Patrol badge on his son,
Rick, who continues to serve in
that agency.
His other children include three
daughters, Logan, and twins,
Madison and Reagan.
Wells has numerous kinfolk on
both sides of his family living in
Washington and Holmes counties,
including this reporter and Max
Wells of Chipley and Hazel Wells
Tison of Bonifay.
Governor Charlie Crist has ap-
pointed Sheriff Wells' right-hand
man, Colonel Brad Stuebe, as In-
terim Sheriff of Manatee County
until the 2008 election.

and Miller said much of

*Military retirees. There

are about 34,000 military
retirees in Miller's district,
and one issue discussed is
the lack of a VA clinic in
the area. Miller agreed this
is a problem.
"Okaloosa County has
the largest veteran popula-
tion in the district and there
is no clinic there," Miller
He did note the joint ef-
fort between the Pensacola
Naval Hospital and the
VA, as well as that at Eglin
AFB. However, veterans
have no VA clinic between
Pensacola and Tallahassee.

said. "It's not as easy as

As regards supplemen-
tal funding for the war
in Iraq, Miller suggested
that Speaker of the House
Nancy Pelosi is hesitant to
bring a "clear" bill to the
floor, because it would pass

with Republican votes.
Pelosi has to deal with
seven or eight large Dem-
ocratic factions ranging
from extreme left to con-
servatives, and try and sat-
isfy each.
He voted against a re-
cent supplemental bill be-
cause it was "cluttered"
with non-defense pork-
barrel projects.
Miller noted that despite
differences on some issue,
that he and Democratic
Rep. Allen Boys from the
Second House district work
closely on issues of com-
mon interest to Florida.

he's looking forward to

how she's been able to ma-

plicated land acquisition
process involving so many
land owners, investors,
and government agencies.
I'm also touched by her
willingness to sacrifice so

much of her own resources
to secure the land for Jim

She's committed to bring-

Freedom News Service
Has your situation changed from
last year? That's the question
most tax preparers lead with,
and there's a good reason.
Taxes are dynamic. They're supposed
to grow as you do, rising and falling with
your fortunes. Every life has its share of
milestones, and many of them throw a
wrinkle on your 1040 form. Too often,
folks fall asleep on the tax changes, and
it can cost them.

"It isn't always in penalties," says
Bill Brunson, the Internal Revenue
Service's media relations expert. People
can miss opportunities, as well. "If you
don't look at your financial situation, and
how the tax law affects you for that
accounting period, you may be paying
too much tax."
We took Brunson through a hypotheti-
cal life, discussing changes that might
affect taxes. At each juncture, the IRS
has forms, a Web site (www.irs.gov) and
a toll-free number, (800) 829-1040, to
help you more.

"When a person buys a home, they pay mortgage interest," says Brunson. "Generally
speaking, the traditional 15- to 30-year mortgage is going to allow (homeowners) to start
itemizing beyond their standard deduction." Good news But remember: Those nifty
homeowner deductions for car tags, charitable contributions, state income tax and
the like are designed to offset mortgage interest. "Twenty-nine years down the line,
after you've basically paid the interest off, you may not be able to itemize," he says.
"That can cause a change in your tax liability, resulting in more tax owed." See
Publication 936.
Bad times!
The tax man can actually have your back if times turn tough. "Let's say you're a single
parent, a couple of kids in the house, and you don't make a lot of money, say $35,000 a
year," he says. "The Earned Income Tax Credit allows individuals to receive money if
they file under a particular status." Designed to assist struggling families, the EITC can
award money above a refund. "If your yearly income is around $39,000 or less, it can be
as much as $4,600." "Between 20 percent and 25 percent of the people eligible for this
credit neglect to claim it each year," says Brunson. See Form 1040, Publication 596.
Wedding bells
Newlyweds are prone to a very common mistake. If you married in the previous year -
Jan. 1, July 4 or Dec. 31 you're married for that year, as far as the IRS is concerned.
Couples must change their filing status to married, filing singly or married, filing jointly.
"You want to find which allows.you to pay the least tax, of course." says Brunson. "The
only way to know that is to crunch the numbers both ways." In a community property
state, filing jointly is usually the better deal. And the common mistake? "When a newly
married couple files jointly, sometimes the wife uses her married name without formally
changing it." This will cause a delay, to verify identity. "If you want to use your maiden
name, fine," he says. "But if you use your married name, make sure you change it first
with the Social Security Administration." (www.socialsecurity.gov)
If you're divorcing, it isn't just the children who suffer. Your tax profile takes a hit, too.
"You would look at what your status is at the end of the year," says Brunson. "So you
could be filing as the head of household or single. Divorce could cause you to pay
alimony or child support." There's a vast distinction between the two. There is no tax
benefit for child support. It is strictly for the benefit of the child. Alimony is a different
story. "When you pay alimony, and it meets the requirements for alimony, it is a deduc-
tion from your return, as well as an inclusion to the recipient's return. Line 31A on the
1040 form. See Publication 504.
Joe college
Your child may become the big man on campus, but to the IRS, he's -.
still your little deduction. "Generally speaking, you can still claim a
child as a dependent up until the age of 23, if they are a full-
time student. This applies to technical schools, too." But
other deductions are also available to take the edge off
education. "You can deduct as much as $4,000 for
tuition and fees. And you can claim various credits, like
interest paid on student loans. A whole host of deductions
depend on the student's status." See Publication 970.
Retirees, well-schooled in the rhythm of filing returns,
sometimes don't know they can stop. "These are people
who have filed year after year after year," says Brunson.
The minimum taxable amountfor married couples, filing
jointly, is $16,900. "With an elderly couple that may be
higher because of additional exemptions for age and
other factors." Retirees should revisit "Do You Have to '
File?" and see if they still need to bother. "If they fall
below the statutory requirement, but still submit a return, b
there's no refund, no benefit to the taxpayer, but there is a
(processing) cost to the government," he says. "We don't want
those folks to file if there's no need." See Form 1040 instructions.

"If students are into
something, go with it," said
Iles. "I introduced how to
write a business letter and
they didn't even know it."
The class wrote rough
and final drafts using a
proper business letter for-
mat, then mailed them as a
set. In less than two weeks,
they received a letter from
a Lady-in-Waiting, who
explained that the Queen
is unable to answer all of
her correspondence person-
The Lady-in-Waiting
wrote that the Queen said
to thank them for "the well-
composed letters" and en-
closed materials that an-
swered all of the student's
questions. Iles made sure
each student asked a unique
question during the revision
Diane Jenks wanted to
know if the Queen had to
wear her crown all day.
