Don’t Forget To Pay Your Use Tax

As California consumers load up online shopping carts this holiday season, they might not realize these purchases are taxed to support vital public services. Online shoppers who are not charged sales tax may owe use tax, which has been imposed on purchases from out-of-state retailers since 1935. Like sales tax, use tax helps fund public safety, education and more.

Fishing Report

It's been a long time since I've actually planned a fishing trip. Usually, I decide the night before, or the morning of, and am in a mad scramble to get everything ready for a day of fishing. Consequently, that leaves me a lot of times, making last minute phone calls to friends and family searching for someone to fish with. When I realized Veterans' Day was going to be celebrated on a Tuesday this year, I immediately decided that I was going to go fishing that day. The day couldn't have worked out better for me, I ...

OID Farmers Get Full Rebate

In a 4-1 vote at the Tuesday, Aug. 18 regular meeting, the Oakdale Irrigation District Board of Directors approved a 100 percent rebate equal to the 2010 water year taxes for farmers in the district. Director Jack Alpers was the dissenting vote, stating that he supported a 50 percent rebate but felt that anything above that was "outrageous."
The vote was part of an action item that called for the board to decide how to allocate $5 million from a water sale to the Westside farmers earlier this year. The rebate equates to approximately $1.2 million. While the rebate ...

My Friend Jason

Distinguishing the difference between friend and acquaintance has often been my downfall.
The word 'friend' is defined by Webster's New World Dictionary as: a person whom one knows well and is fond of; an ally, supporter or sympathizer.
Relationships built through everyday life bring with it a variety of titles. Other than the aforementioned titles, we often refer to a person as a co-worker, neighbor, fellow volunteer or business associate. Most recently I have come to realize that as these types of relationships end and our lives move in different directions the relationship of friend or acquaintance quickly becomes ...
