26 Gabber August 29 September 4, 2013 By Holiday Mathis The week starts off on an auspicious note with the sun and Pluto arranging themselves as cheerleaders for positive change. Thursday brings the new moon in Virgo and the ideal day to rid your pantry and refrigerator of anything and everything that might run goals. Together in the sign of vitality, the sun and the moon ask: What do you have to lose, besides a bit of extra weight? VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Its easy for people to say that humans are responsible for their own fate when they are in a good place in life. Yes, people get what they give to some extent, but there are also factors that are beyond our control. Youre determined to take the reins of control wherever possible, but dont fret if fate wont give them up. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Youll plan carefully what to say and do. Some people are good at self-monitoring, because they are sensitive to how others see them. You self-monitor because you care about how others are feeling and want them to have a good experience, not because you are overly concerned with how you are being perceived. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you are in an unfamiliar circumstance and dont know how to behave, others. Unfortunately, the others involved may not know what they are doing or why. Youll go far using your moral compass and all of your powers of reason to navigate toward those who can really help you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The natural human response is to back away from a failure and take credit for a hit. The superhuman response is to own whatever contribution is yours, whether the end result is a winner or a loser. Its all a learning process, and this is CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). To believe another person is right and to follow suit is one thing. To comply with a person because youre afraid of ridicule or rejection is another thing entirely. Knowing the difference in the moment will be important to this weeks outcome. When in doubt, take a step back and think things out for yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Everyone loves a genesis story. Thats why theyll ask, What gave you this idea? How did the two of you meet? and How did you come to work here? Beginnings are exciting. Nothing exists, and then suddenly something does -brilliant! What youll be starting this week will later make an excellent story. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You often will agree to help a loved one out, but you still like to take things on a case-by-case basis. Saying no a few times this week will be good for your relationship, too. As soon as someone thinks youll do whatever he or she wants, youre in a down position. Draw boundaries and take back your power. ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you were to be completely honest with a certain someone about your feelings, the result might be spirit-crushing. Sometimes a be cruel to be kind philosophy never quite gets around to the being kind part. Your feelings will change over time, so theres no need to air them completely. Choose compassion. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The early week sees you piecing together dissociated knowledge that wont make any more sense to you as the week progresses -but at least youll feel good about the process. Building your creative and emotional muscle tone will help you grow into the person you want to be. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Youre inner demons, youll wind up on the same side: their side. But youd be surprised at the true nature of these psychic creatures. They dont want to devour you. They only want understanding and forgiveness. Stop them to work for and not against you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). French existentialist John-Paul Sartre said, In love, one and one are one. And yet you feel a growing resistance to melding spirit, intention and identity with another. A driving need to be your own person will take over, making the idea of giving up yourself in the name of love seem repugnant. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You dont want your work to fall into the who cares category. Thats why you take around you need and want. And yet, if you totally cater to them, youll lose the art. Youll have to navigate the line between doing something serviceable and doing what best expresses you. This Week's Birthdays: Your birthday comes like a rainbow after the storm. In September, success in and content that you wont be able to keep from succeeding in business, too. You divide your time well between both in October, but as the end of the year grows nearer, it will get harder to balance your many responsibilities. Still, your social life should be the priority. How you show up in this regard will affect bottom line, too.

Using common a garden tool, a couple pry bars, a bucket truck from Yutzy Tree Service, and his secret spray, Rick McChesney of the Gulfport Bug Man removes a bee hive nearly two stories high hanging in a laurel oak over 27th Ave. at 53rd Street. According to McChesney, 87% of bees have an Africanized Bee gene. Because of the inter breeding there is no shortage of bees. As a result, the hybrid bees swarm new queens 4-6 times a year, rather than the typical once a year.

32 Gabber August 29 September 4, 2013 Everyday Cheap$kateBy Mary HuntPay-As-You-Earn Repayment Plan May Offer Relief Dear Mary: At age 46, I went back to school and chose University of Phoenix because I could go to school online and continue to work full time. Five years later I received my bachelors degree at age 51. I was proud of myself, but I work at a grain elevator in a small town and discovered that my new degree meant nothing to my employer. So it has done me no good. Now I face all the student loans. I just discovered that it will take 30 years to pay off my $71,000 in school loans. The current $236 monthly payment is already stretching me. I cant afford to pay more each month, and the thought of throwing away all that money on interest and paying till I die has me super-stressed. Is there any way that I can get at least some of this debt forgiven? I just dont know where to turn. -Susie, Illinois Dear Susie: Reading your letter made my heart hurt. Oh, how I wish youd written before you made the decision to take on so much student debt. I would have offered you my Rule of Thumb for student debt: Do not borrow more for college than you school. I can tell you that repayment plans for federal student loans have become more generous recently, as some new rules have gone into effect. Ask your loan servicer about the Pay as You Earn option, which became available to borrowers at the end of December 2012. This plan improves on the current income-based repayment program, pegging the amount you pay to your discretionary income (the amount by which your income exceeds the poverty line), and lowers the percentage of income you pay from 15 percent to 10 percent and the number of years over which you pay from 25 to 20 years. At the end of that period, any remaining amount is forgiven. To qualify, you must have taken after Sept. 30, 2007 and received a disbursement from at least one loan after Sept. 30, 2011. Only direct loans are covered. You can learn more about whether you are eligible for this at StudentAid.ed.gov. Type, Pay as you earn, in the search box. Dear Mary: I currently have $37,000 in credit card debt. All of the accounts are current, and Ive stopped using the cards. Settling is not an option for me. I am close to signing with a DMP (debt management program), which would resolve this in four years. I have $10,000 that I can apply to these balances now. Can you suggest a better way? Thanks. -Rick, email. Dear Rick: From what youve told me, it appears the steps youre taking are exactly what I would advise: Keep your payments current, stop using the cards, buckle down, and do whatever you must do to get these things paid off as quickly as possible. My only caution is that the DMP youre considering should be with a reputable credit counseling NFCC (National Foundation for Credit Counseling). I want to make sure you understand that once youre accepted into the DMP, your counselor will work with your creditors to reduce your interest rates and get you onto a plan that will get your debt paid off quickly -in your case, four years. Thats good. While enrolled in the DMP, you will make your payments to the DMP, who will in turn send the agreedupon payments to your creditors. This is why you want to make sure youre working with a reputable DMP that has a good track record and of its management program. Good luck!

Name withheld A: Gulfport City Manager Jim O'Reilly tells us that the Gulfport Arts Center/City of Imagination (COI) uses one room the front one of the Gulfport Arts Center/City of Imagination has a use agreement, approved by the 2009 city council, which stipulates that the Arts Center/ City of Imagination may use the site "for purposes consistent with the Gulfport Arts Center/City of Imagination mission for projects and activities only, activities forth in the initial use agreement; such as meetings to conduct fundraising and the sale and display of member created art projects and activities." COI must clean and maintain the space as well as pay its own electricity, water and sewer bills. COI pays the city a fee of $25.00 monthly for that portion of those services," O'Reilly says. As for oversight, he tells us that the city has two forms: it can choose not to renew the agreement scheduled for renewal at the end of this month at a council meeting, or, with notice, the city may terminate the agreement. "The city expects that the City of Imagination will conduct themselves in an appropriate manner," O'Reilly says, adding that Gulfport has not received any complaints as to the group's activities.

36 Gabber August 29 September 4, 2013 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northr op B_Northr op@theGabber. com Changing Hearts, Minds and Soul Sometimes, as a reporter, you stumble into historical events. Like being in the right place at the right time. It was that way 50 years ago (a 100 years since the Emancipation Proclamation), when I and a fellow photographer decided to cover the March on Washington in which Dr. Martin Luther King gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. (See Sunday's Tampa Bay Times edition). I was in Beaver Falls, Pa. at the time and went because my mother lived in nearby Alexandria, Va. and we had a place to stay; it wasn't too long a drive; talk around our town and the rest of the country was that a march on Washington by Negroes, as they were referred to then, couldn't be done peacefully, particularly prodded by white agitators; and local civil rights leaders were going. Based on personal experiences in both the South and the North, I did not expect trouble and as I noted in the Times article, there wasn't any in spite of some outside agitation. That was the "news" aspect as well as the fact that the crowd was civil, cheerful and well-dressed. If I recall, we left before Dr. King's speech, but heard it on television. In that sense, we blew it as did most of media outlets. As it turned out, while the march itself was an historic event, the speech was the impetus and became the spiritual basis of the civil rights movement. This was a time when Jim Crow still lived in the South with its separate facilities and "whites only" signs even after the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision banning school segregation. In the North, segregation was more subtle. Not all public accommodations like restaurants and motels and hotels would accept Negroes. Public swimming pools often wouldn't accept people of color, nor would the Young Men's (or Women's) Christian Association. Real estate, rental and owner, was segregated and private clubs including the veterans and fraternal organizations were very subtly closed. Treatment by police was a particular sore spot. But it wasn't just the March and speech that precipitated the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or supportive acts human decency by whites in the deep South had its consequences. The turning point, in my opinion, was the Birmingham, Ala. church bombing in which four young children were The absurd "no school integration" posturing of Gov. George Wallace also in Alabama and the courage of rallied the nation, too. Finally, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in November of 1963, while not related directly to the issue, brought into power a powerful, manipulative, determined and ruthless Lyndon B. Johnson, who, although a southerner, latched on to the issue and rammed through the 1964 legislation. That's the backdrop for today's very much changed world of many new laws and regulations and government and non-government organizations all vying to sustain and preserve equality and opportunity for all. Fifty years ago the prime movers were what we now call the AfricanAmerican community sometimes allied with or competing with the women's movement. Today, there are a myriad of causes and movements, pushing the original group to the back of the bus, to use a pre-1960s phrase. There's enough material for dozens of columns and thousands of words about that theme, but here's one observation that might draw some thought: The basic laws for equality have been written and movements and causes and government institutions have grown up to enforce them. That's been change the human hearts and mind and soul. These can't be legislated. Displa y Ad ve r tising? Call Gina at321-6965Deadline T ues 5pmtheG a b b e r

Pet Pal Animal Shelter The Tropics Heat up in August Hurricane Andrew. Hurricane Charley. Hurricane Katrina. What does each of these storms have in common? landfall in August. This is the month when tropical activity begins to ramp up in earnest before reaching its peak in midSeptember. Thats why it is critical that residents take this time to ensure all of their preparations for a potential hurricane impact are done. Some items to consider include: coolers can help keep perishable items cold for a longer period thanks to improved insulation. Residents should evaluate the age and insulation of their coolers, as well as their size. Smaller coolers are easy to tote to the beach, but can they hold a substantial amount of ice and food should power go out? best ways to help prevent damage outdoors is to bring in lawn furniture, grills, bird baths and other outdoor furniture. Residents should take the time to review what items need to be brought into a protected area, and exactly where that will be. This can save a tremendous amount of time during the stressful approach of a hurricane. tablet computers and other electronics can provide vital links to friends and relatives both before and after a storm. Chargers that work on regular power, a car charger and by other means are vital to keep the batteries juiced up. Simple changes such as adjusting screen brightness, deleting unnecessary applications and using better saving applications can help extend the life of the battery for when you need it most.

46 Gabber August 29 September 4, 2013 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. What is Disclaimer of Interest? Disclaimer of interest, in the law of inheritance, wills and trusts, is a term that describes an attempt by a person to give up their legal right to under a will or through intestacy) or through a trust. A disclaimer of interest cannot be changed. There are a number of reasons why a person might wish to avoid an inheritance, particularly if the proceeds would only go to their creditors, or if it would drastically affect their income tax liabilities. Under the common law, a person who disclaimed their interest would be treated as though they had died before the trust or will came into effect. This was a sensible option if the disclaiming party was an heir by descent, whose own children would then take in his place and without the imposition of a gift tax. Disclaimer of interest is also called a renunciation. A disclaimer of interest must be complete, and not a partial disclaimer. Such a disclaimer can be made by a legal guardian on behalf of a person who lacks the capacity to make the disclaimer themselves, but Probate Court that the disclaimer is in the wards best interest. The disclaimer must be in writing and submitted to the Probate Court overseeing the administration of time period, which is usually twelve months after the death of the person from whom the disclaiming party stands to inherit, or twelve months after the creation of a trust by a living in which the disclaiming party must swear that he or she has not received any compensation for the disclaimer. The disclaimer must also take place before the disclaiming party has inheritance. In addition to the more typical disclaimer under wills, an individual may also be able to disclaim his life insurance policy or employee concurrent interests in real property that automatically transfer after death by operation of law rather than by the rules of inheritance (such as joint tenancies or tenancies by the entirety).

Call For Business OrganizationBy Gulfport Mayor, Sam HendersonI want to take the opportunity to discuss one of Gulfports strengths with regards to our business community. While many cities are lucky to have their own Chamber of Commerce, we are fortunate enough to have three different groups representing businesses in the Gulfport area: the Gulfport Area Chamber of Commerce, the Gulfport Merchants Association (GMA) and the South 49th Street Business Association (So49). All of these groups work hard to support their member businesses, and even to recruit additional membership. All of these groups do good work in the community and give of themselves to build economic prosperity in our city. I have been fortunate enough to work with all of our business associations on multiple their dedication in action. As mayor, I want to make a request of the Chamber, GMA and So49. It is my belief that council and city staff will be in a better position to assist in your endeavors if we are hearing a common message from each of you. To this end, I would like to see one representative from each of our three business associations meet quarterly in order to keep one another apprised of your plans, ideas and directions. Subsequently, it would be valuable to have this representative trio See Business, page 45 Diabetes Prevention Class Did you know that reducing your body weight by just 7% and increasing your physical activity can greatly reduce your risk of developing a host of chronic diseases?

26 Gabber August 29 September 4, 2013 By Holiday Mathis The week starts off on an auspicious note with the sun and Pluto arranging themselves as cheerleaders for positive change. Thursday brings the new moon in Virgo and the ideal day to rid your pantry and refrigerator of anything and everything that might run goals. Together in the sign of vitality, the sun and the moon ask: What do you have to lose, besides a bit of extra weight? VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Its easy for people to say that humans are responsible for their own fate when they are in a good place in life. Yes, people get what they give to some extent, but there are also factors that are beyond our control. Youre determined to take the reins of control wherever possible, but dont fret if fate wont give them up. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Youll plan carefully what to say and do. Some people are good at self-monitoring, because they are sensitive to how others see them. You self-monitor because you care about how others are feeling and want them to have a good experience, not because you are overly concerned with how you are being perceived. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you are in an unfamiliar circumstance and dont know how to behave, others. Unfortunately, the others involved may not know what they are doing or why. Youll go far using your moral compass and all of your powers of reason to navigate toward those who can really help you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). The natural human response is to back away from a failure and take credit for a hit. The superhuman response is to own whatever contribution is yours, whether the end result is a winner or a loser. Its all a learning process, and this is CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). To believe another person is right and to follow suit is one thing. To comply with a person because youre afraid of ridicule or rejection is another thing entirely. Knowing the difference in the moment will be important to this weeks outcome. When in doubt, take a step back and think things out for yourself. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Everyone loves a genesis story. Thats why theyll ask, What gave you this idea? How did the two of you meet? and How did you come to work here? Beginnings are exciting. Nothing exists, and then suddenly something does -brilliant! What youll be starting this week will later make an excellent story. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You often will agree to help a loved one out, but you still like to take things on a case-by-case basis. Saying no a few times this week will be good for your relationship, too. As soon as someone thinks youll do whatever he or she wants, youre in a down position. Draw boundaries and take back your power. ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you were to be completely honest with a certain someone about your feelings, the result might be spirit-crushing. Sometimes a be cruel to be kind philosophy never quite gets around to the being kind part. Your feelings will change over time, so theres no need to air them completely. Choose compassion. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The early week sees you piecing together dissociated knowledge that wont make any more sense to you as the week progresses -but at least youll feel good about the process. Building your creative and emotional muscle tone will help you grow into the person you want to be. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Youre inner demons, youll wind up on the same side: their side. But youd be surprised at the true nature of these psychic creatures. They dont want to devour you. They only want understanding and forgiveness. Stop them to work for and not against you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). French existentialist John-Paul Sartre said, In love, one and one are one. And yet you feel a growing resistance to melding spirit, intention and identity with another. A driving need to be your own person will take over, making the idea of giving up yourself in the name of love seem repugnant. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You dont want your work to fall into the who cares category. Thats why you take around you need and want. And yet, if you totally cater to them, youll lose the art. Youll have to navigate the line between doing something serviceable and doing what best expresses you. This Week's Birthdays: Your birthday comes like a rainbow after the storm. In September, success in and content that you wont be able to keep from succeeding in business, too. You divide your time well between both in October, but as the end of the year grows nearer, it will get harder to balance your many responsibilities. Still, your social life should be the priority. How you show up in this regard will affect bottom line, too.

Using common a garden tool, a couple pry bars, a bucket truck from Yutzy Tree Service, and his secret spray, Rick McChesney of the Gulfport Bug Man removes a bee hive nearly two stories high hanging in a laurel oak over 27th Ave. at 53rd Street. According to McChesney, 87% of bees have an Africanized Bee gene. Because of the inter breeding there is no shortage of bees. As a result, the hybrid bees swarm new queens 4-6 times a year, rather than the typical once a year.

32 Gabber August 29 September 4, 2013 Everyday Cheap$kateBy Mary HuntPay-As-You-Earn Repayment Plan May Offer Relief Dear Mary: At age 46, I went back to school and chose University of Phoenix because I could go to school online and continue to work full time. Five years later I received my bachelors degree at age 51. I was proud of myself, but I work at a grain elevator in a small town and discovered that my new degree meant nothing to my employer. So it has done me no good. Now I face all the student loans. I just discovered that it will take 30 years to pay off my $71,000 in school loans. The current $236 monthly payment is already stretching me. I cant afford to pay more each month, and the thought of throwing away all that money on interest and paying till I die has me super-stressed. Is there any way that I can get at least some of this debt forgiven? I just dont know where to turn. -Susie, Illinois Dear Susie: Reading your letter made my heart hurt. Oh, how I wish youd written before you made the decision to take on so much student debt. I would have offered you my Rule of Thumb for student debt: Do not borrow more for college than you school. I can tell you that repayment plans for federal student loans have become more generous recently, as some new rules have gone into effect. Ask your loan servicer about the Pay as You Earn option, which became available to borrowers at the end of December 2012. This plan improves on the current income-based repayment program, pegging the amount you pay to your discretionary income (the amount by which your income exceeds the poverty line), and lowers the percentage of income you pay from 15 percent to 10 percent and the number of years over which you pay from 25 to 20 years. At the end of that period, any remaining amount is forgiven. To qualify, you must have taken after Sept. 30, 2007 and received a disbursement from at least one loan after Sept. 30, 2011. Only direct loans are covered. You can learn more about whether you are eligible for this at StudentAid.ed.gov. Type, Pay as you earn, in the search box. Dear Mary: I currently have $37,000 in credit card debt. All of the accounts are current, and Ive stopped using the cards. Settling is not an option for me. I am close to signing with a DMP (debt management program), which would resolve this in four years. I have $10,000 that I can apply to these balances now. Can you suggest a better way? Thanks. -Rick, email. Dear Rick: From what youve told me, it appears the steps youre taking are exactly what I would advise: Keep your payments current, stop using the cards, buckle down, and do whatever you must do to get these things paid off as quickly as possible. My only caution is that the DMP youre considering should be with a reputable credit counseling NFCC (National Foundation for Credit Counseling). I want to make sure you understand that once youre accepted into the DMP, your counselor will work with your creditors to reduce your interest rates and get you onto a plan that will get your debt paid off quickly -in your case, four years. Thats good. While enrolled in the DMP, you will make your payments to the DMP, who will in turn send the agreedupon payments to your creditors. This is why you want to make sure youre working with a reputable DMP that has a good track record and of its management program. Good luck!

36 Gabber August 29 September 4, 2013 Somethin on my mind Somethin on my mindBy Bill Northrop B_Northrop@theGabber. com Changing Hearts, Minds and Soul Sometimes, as a reporter, you stumble into historical events. Like being in the right place at the right time. It was that way 50 years ago (a 100 years since the Emancipation Proclamation), when I and a fellow photographer decided to cover the March on Washington in which Dr. Martin Luther King gave his famous "I Have a Dream" speech. (See Sunday's Tampa Bay Times edition). I was in Beaver Falls, Pa. at the time and went because my mother lived in nearby Alexandria, Va. and we had a place to stay; it wasn't too long a drive; talk around our town and the rest of the country was that a march on Washington by Negroes, as they were referred to then, couldn't be done peacefully, particularly prodded by white agitators; and local civil rights leaders were going. Based on personal experiences in both the South and the North, I did not expect trouble and as I noted in the Times article, there wasn't any in spite of some outside agitation. That was the "news" aspect as well as the fact that the crowd was civil, cheerful and well-dressed. If I recall, we left before Dr. King's speech, but heard it on television. In that sense, we blew it as did most of media outlets. As it turned out, while the march itself was an historic event, the speech was the impetus and became the spiritual basis of the civil rights movement. This was a time when Jim Crow still lived in the South with its separate facilities and "whites only" signs even after the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court decision banning school segregation. In the North, segregation was more subtle. Not all public accommodations like restaurants and motels and hotels would accept Negroes. Public swimming pools often wouldn't accept people of color, nor would the Young Men's (or Women's) Christian Association. Real estate, rental and owner, was segregated and private clubs including the veterans and fraternal organizations were very subtly closed. Treatment by police was a particular sore spot. But it wasn't just the March and speech that precipitated the Civil Rights Act of 1964 or supportive acts human decency by whites in the deep South had its consequences. The turning point, in my opinion, was the Birmingham, Ala. church bombing in which four young children were The absurd "no school integration" posturing of Gov. George Wallace also in Alabama and the courage of rallied the nation, too. Finally, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in November of 1963, while not related directly to the issue, brought into power a powerful, manipulative, determined and ruthless Lyndon B. Johnson, who, although a southerner, latched on to the issue and rammed through the 1964 legislation. That's the backdrop for today's very much changed world of many new laws and regulations and government and non-government organizations all vying to sustain and preserve equality and opportunity for all. Fifty years ago the prime movers were what we now call the AfricanAmerican community sometimes allied with or competing with the women's movement. Today, there are a myriad of causes and movements, pushing the original group to the back of the bus, to use a pre-1960s phrase. There's enough material for dozens of columns and thousands of words about that theme, but here's one observation that might draw some thought: The basic laws for equality have been written and movements and causes and government institutions have grown up to enforce them. That's been change the human hearts and mind and soul. These can't be legislated. Display Ad ve rtising? Call Gina at321-6965Deadline Tues 5pmtheG a b b e r

Pet Pal Animal Shelter The Tropics Heat up in August Hurricane Andrew. Hurricane Charley. Hurricane Katrina. What does each of these storms have in common? landfall in August. This is the month when tropical activity begins to ramp up in earnest before reaching its peak in midSeptember. Thats why it is critical that residents take this time to ensure all of their preparations for a potential hurricane impact are done. Some items to consider include: coolers can help keep perishable items cold for a longer period thanks to improved insulation. Residents should evaluate the age and insulation of their coolers, as well as their size. Smaller coolers are easy to tote to the beach, but can they hold a substantial amount of ice and food should power go out? best ways to help prevent damage outdoors is to bring in lawn furniture, grills, bird baths and other outdoor furniture. Residents should take the time to review what items need to be brought into a protected area, and exactly where that will be. This can save a tremendous amount of time during the stressful approach of a hurricane. tablet computers and other electronics can provide vital links to friends and relatives both before and after a storm. Chargers that work on regular power, a car charger and by other means are vital to keep the batteries juiced up. Simple changes such as adjusting screen brightness, deleting unnecessary applications and using better saving applications can help extend the life of the battery for when you need it most.

46 Gabber August 29 September 4, 2013 By Robert J. Myers, Esq. What is Disclaimer of Interest? Disclaimer of interest, in the law of inheritance, wills and trusts, is a term that describes an attempt by a person to give up their legal right to under a will or through intestacy) or through a trust. A disclaimer of interest cannot be changed. There are a number of reasons why a person might wish to avoid an inheritance, particularly if the proceeds would only go to their creditors, or if it would drastically affect their income tax liabilities. Under the common law, a person who disclaimed their interest would be treated as though they had died before the trust or will came into effect. This was a sensible option if the disclaiming party was an heir by descent, whose own children would then take in his place and without the imposition of a gift tax. Disclaimer of interest is also called a renunciation. A disclaimer of interest must be complete, and not a partial disclaimer. Such a disclaimer can be made by a legal guardian on behalf of a person who lacks the capacity to make the disclaimer themselves, but Probate Court that the disclaimer is in the wards best interest. The disclaimer must be in writing and submitted to the Probate Court overseeing the administration of time period, which is usually twelve months after the death of the person from whom the disclaiming party stands to inherit, or twelve months after the creation of a trust by a living in which the disclaiming party must swear that he or she has not received any compensation for the disclaimer. The disclaimer must also take place before the disclaiming party has inheritance. In addition to the more typical disclaimer under wills, an individual may also be able to disclaim his life insurance policy or employee concurrent interests in real property that automatically transfer after death by operation of law rather than by the rules of inheritance (such as joint tenancies or tenancies by the entirety).
