Does that mean, to hell with attendance for the rest of the year? The colleges use bribery I hopefully no more) to get certain students to attend their school. To pay incentives to encourage students to attend school, sounds like bribery to me. Superintendent Brown is supposed to have pointed out that some schools are even offering trips. Does that make it right, just because some schools subscribe to this appalling tactic? Is that why we had loc school bond issue to waste money? lf students don’t care to attend school, by all means let them drop out. One would think, however, that the parents should care enough to make the students attend regularly. I heard one local radio announcer read this “little” item and he, too just did not know what to say. Gerda Barker Tax debate may create opportunities To the Editor: The debate in Washington over the President’s proposed tax reform bill has created an opportunity that you should take advantage of! lf the tax reform bill is passed as it has been proposed, many types of projects financed today by using federally tax-exempt municipal bonds would no longer be allowed to use this tax-advantaged method of borrowing money. Because of this potential restriction, many states, cities and counties are issuing municipal bonds now in order to assure the lower cost of financing their projects. This rush to theh market prior to year end has created a temporary over-supply of tax-free bonds. In order to attract dollars away from other types of investments, the interest rates being offered today have risen to high levels. Investors today are now able to lock in federal income tax-free yields of over 9 percent to maturity on fully insured, AAA rated municipal bonds. To compare this return with other taxable investments; a married couple filing a joint Federal Income Tax Return »n 1985 on taxable earnings of $48,000 would find themselves in the 38 percent tax bracket. In order for them to matehh theh return of a 9 percent tax-free bond, they would need to earn over 14.5 percent before paying the IRS! If tax-free income is one of your investment objectives, we recommend you talk to your broker soon to take advantage of these higher tax free rates. Stan Cunningham What's Your Beef?
