The changing leaves have been attracting more and more photographers and photo clubs who post their pictures online via web- sites, blogs and Facebook, thereby adding to the viral marketing effort. Through Google alerts, the Visitors Bureau is able to track these photographers and make contact, which has led to various photo sharing arrangements or purchases, future photo shoots and even friendships. Tony Mindling is a great ex- ample. Mindling is a talented amateur photographer-geolo- gist who was discovered by lo- cal photographer Richard Mc- Cutcheon when both were out shooting fall foliage in Indian Valley a few years ago. We contacted Mindling, who lives a few hours away, and asked if he could come back up to shoot some images with mod- els. Mindling's productive vis- its have resulted in cover shots for the Plumas County Visitors Guide for the past three years. Mindling's shots also were featured in VIA magazine and led Tom Stien- stra's outdoors column in the San Francisco Chronicle this month. In exchange for Min- dling's talent, we've offered modest compensation and a couple of free RV camp spots donated by local businesses. Last year, we found another photographer through Google, Marichu Pereira, who donated some images used in the Visi- tors Guide. In exchange, we arranged for a cabin (donated by Chalet View) last weekend, which she shared with two other photographers she brought along from her Liver- more Valley camera club. Pereira is a delightful, talent- ed photographer that we had Antique store opens Marilu Dillard, Linda Westwood, Linda Brennan and San- dra Lee have joined forces under one roof and opened Village Antiques, Collectibles and Gifts.

It's simply informational, though. You will not owe income tax on that amount; it will not be added to your taxable wages on the form. (The value of the health coverage is the same as that used to determine the allowable premium for COBRA coverage.) Companies will have to hustle, though, to get the new forms; they do not have until the end of the year. That's because workers :"" ,: who leave the company can request the W-2 within 30 days of their final paycheck, or when the request is made, whichever is later. ',' " :: On a similar note, companies will have to amend their flexible spending programs by the end of this year to allow for coverage ,,,, of the workers' children under age 27; they cannot be excluded from the company's plan. ........ When small business firms need tax know-how, they come to the experts at: o UrlSm the pleasure of meeting in per- son last weekend. Her fellow photographers - one of whom is a "master" (in the photo competition world) - shot im- ages across the county all weekend, and will likely be back, perhaps even as a club field trip. Photography is a huge social network, and turns out there are some 30 camera clubs just in Northern California! Meanwhile, Pereira, who works in a Stanford Hospital laboratory, herself used social media to spread the word about Plumas County. She was so ex- cited to become an "official photographer" for us that she blogged and Facebooked the news, linked the online Visi- tors Guide, and encouraged her hundreds of friends and fans to visit Plumas County. This upcoming weekend, two photo groups are coming to Lake Almanor/Lassen Park as the result of a web-based tool known as "meet up." This worldwide social network al- lows people with common in- terests to organize group func- tions, in this case, a photo trip to Plumas County. The invite is illustrated with Pereira's photos, so we know that's how they got the idea. We've al- ready been in touch with the group leader from Sacramento who's gathering 30 photogra- phers; the other group from Tehama County is bringing seven. Local tourism busi- nesses will benefit of course, but we're hoping to form some new relationships with pho- tographers as well. YOU'VE SPENT A LIFETIME PREPARING FOR RETIREMENT. NOW WHAT?
