REVERSE MORTGAGE: YES OR NO? d A reverse mortgage lets homeowners 62 and older converl home equity into cash. The mortgage pays the homeowner, instead of the other way around, and need not be repaid until the house is sold or the owner dies. Is it a good choice? Maybe not. You may not get to borrow a lot. The formula for determining loan amounts considers the age of the owner, the value of the property, and current interest rates. Upfront loan fees are usually high. Look into other options before you decide; consider downsizing your home, or taking a home- equity line of credit. Now there's a new kind of reverse mortgage - within the family. A child or children give the parents a formal loan, backed by the equity in their house. Payment can be a lump sum or a monthly check, for a set number of years or even indefinitely. Ideal for keeping the house in the fmnily, it also offers estate-planning benefits: The estate is diminished by the loan payments. This is not a do-it-yourself project.

Main St., Quincy 283-0680 4 State Senator (:ox and assemblyman Logue each earned perfect ratings business group On a regular basis, the Na- tional Federation of Indepen- dent Business, America's leading small business asso- ciation, tracks the voting records of each member of the state Assembly and Senate. The voting record provides a critically impor- tant evaluation of a legisla- tor's attitude toward small business. Selecting key bills pro- posed by the Legislature that affect small businesses devel- ops the NFIB/California Vat- ing Record. The votes on those bills are recorded and a percentage is determined for each member of the Assem- bly and Senate. In 2009, more than 18 mem- bers of the Assembly and more than 15 members of the Senate had voting records of 80 percent or better. Plumas County's two rep- resentatives, Sen. Dave Cox and Assemblyman Dan Logue, each received a rating of 100 percent from the busi- ness association. "The proof is in the pud- ding," said NFIB/California executive director John Ka- bateck. "To those legislators who proved their support for the more than 700,000 small employers and more than 3 million small businesses in California, we offer our sin- cere gratitude. "For those legislators whose support could use im- provement, we offer an open door, attentive ear and strong support to assist them in making California a better place for our job creators." "California cannot afford the empty talk of well-inten- tioned and honorable elected leaders. Elected leaders will never create a single job in the private sector, only Cali- fornia employers, the vast majority of whom employ a handful of workers, will ever have that honor. However, the Governor and legislators do have the opportunity and responsibility to create an environment that allows small business owners to prosper and fulfill the role of creating nearly three-quar- ters of new jobs in the Great State of California." New owners The new owner of Nellz Towne Pump in Greenville is Pete Singh and his wife, Jasveer Bains. They purchased the ser- vice station and convenience store from Renee Hall, who now owns and operates Morning Thunder in Quincy. Pete has eight years experience operating mini marts and ser- vice stations, most recently in Yuba City. Since taking over he has made several changes, including devoting one sec- tion of the store for fishing tackle and supplies. The couple has two young children..: Valerie Chisholm .
