ONE SMILE AT A TIME Millions of children in developing countries are in desperate need of cleft lip and palate surgery.

ROLL OVER P OLD 401(k)? - Some workers have left theft old jobs but not the 401 (k) that went with it. Whether the funds stayed there for better investment opportunities or simple inertia doesn't matter. It's never too late to roll over the money to another retirement vehicle. One option is to move it to the 401(k) of your current employer - if that plan's rules allow such relievers. Most do. Another is to move it to an IRA, which offers greater investment choices but may have higher fees. You'll need to Compare. Still another choice is a Roth IRA. New rules let you roll over the money directly without going through an ordinary IRA. But it will cost you. If you've made only pretax contributions to the 401(k), you will probably owe income taxes on the entire conversion. If, on the other hand, you made after-tax contributions and are rolling over only those contributions, you can avoid the tax. When decisions have tax consequences, talk them over with the know-how people at: Floberta Alien, CPA John A. Kimmel, CPA Bequette & Kimmel Accountancy Corporation C PA ?" r.e CPA.

Main St., Quincy 283-0680 Chester chamber CHAMBER UPDATE The Chester-Lake Almanor Chamber of Commerce wel- comed four interns from Feather River Community College's nationally recog- nized Students in Free Enter- prise club. The interns are part of a collaborative effort to devel- op and promote local cham- ber member websites, while encouraging community sus- tainability through environ- mental awareness and efficiency The SIFE interns -- re- named "The Green Team', -- will utilize the Chamber Na- tion digital network of Traf- fic Catcher Websites devel- oped by Quincy local Richard Scully. Scully has mentored the students, providing his assis- tance with website design for Quincy local businesses and allowed the students a free space in his Quincy office to develop directory pages for the Chester-Lake Almanor Chamber of Commerce members. The FRC team is already has big aspirations planning for next year's com- petition, hoping the state of California will recognize its collaboration with the Chester-Lake Almanor Chamber as a best practice example of community sus- tainability. The program will be valu- able to the Almanor commu- nity through its impact on the success of the local economy. The interns receive assis- tance through a federally funded grant that targets en- ergy efficiency. In addition to development, operations and maintenance of the directory sites, the stu- dents will assist business owners with their own digi- tal networking and social me- dia skills. They will also guide busi- nesses on simple "green" steps, such as unplugging un- used appliances, switching to fluorescent light bulbs and recycling. Pacific, Gas and Electric Company has also volun- teered to assist in the cham- ber's effort by offering a free energy audit to members. The audits will help ensure environmental efficiency and community sustainability. The joint effort will be a much-needed rejuvenation of reputation, with a desired re- sult to put the Almanor Basin and eventually all of Plumas County on the map as a uni- fied, aware and environmen- tally savvy network of com- munities. Over the course of the sum- mer, The Green Team will ride bicycles to businesses for interviews to compile a baseline of data that will ver- ify measurable results at the end of the project The students are eager and enthusiastic to participate in a project that could impact the entire community in such a positive light.
