BITS AND PIECES Yes, you can withdraw money from an IRA to buy a first home without incurring an early-withdrawal penalty. You need to use the money to build or buy tile home within 120 days of taking it out. (The rules are a little different for Roths.) And you need to file IRS Fonn 5329 with your tax return that year. *********** Because of severe drought in 27 states, livestock operators get additional time to defer gains on sales made in 2005. Those in areas listed by the IRS as still suffering from drought can buy replacement livestock and defer gains at least to the end of 2010. ***$***$*** If you haven't spent all the money in your Flexible Spending Account, you probably have until March 15 to use it up.

Main St., Quincy 283-0680 Indian Valley CHAMBER UPDATE JOSH HUDDLESTON Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce Our 19th annual Crab Feed and Auction this last weekend went off without a hitch. Thanks so very much to all the volunteers, donors, and of coarse the attendees. As usual, everyone had a wonderful time. More details will be in next week's paper. I should note, however, Chris Meyers was a wonderful auctioneer this year and the eqents success could not have been made possible without his support. Thank you Chris! This year was a bit different than years past with a special donation can circulating the room. The can was for the restoration of the Wells Fargo mural on Highway 89. Mural- ist Mykal Sidenstricker has al- ready sealed and cleaned the mural last fall and intends to come back late this spring to restore it. The IVCC needs approxi- mately $5,000 to complete the project and this year's Crab Feed was a big help. Thank you everyone! But that is not all...
