Groups sock sod lo air faro report
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Transportation Department’s lengthy reports on airline fares are misleading and should be discontinued, a group of consumer and public policy analysts said Thursday.
“DOT’s report is seriously flawed,’’ Darryl Jenkins, president of The Aviation Foundation, charged. He contended that reporting average fares is misleading and added that the information is out of date when it is made public.
Department spokesman Bill Mosley responded that the reports “help alleviate fare confusion in the marketplace.”

Workshop addresses retirement finances
Session to take place Tuesday at Treetops
Most retirees do not have an endless supply of money. As the years go by, the expenses add up and retirement sources of savings and investments start to become depleted.
Bob Barber of New Braunfels will instruct an “educational only” workshop from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Tuesday at Treetops Restaurant, 444 E. San Antonio St.
At this workshop, each attendee will be given a 20-page, generic workbook that will consist of essential information, exercises and questions designed to help attendees
make sound financial decisions.
Barber said, “In this workshop, I will discuss how to:
■ “calculate the cost of retirement,
■ “understand the various tax laws with regard to retirees’ savings and investments,
■ “invest for growth, income and stability by taking a balanced approach to investing and achieving goals and
■ “prepare for a more
comfortable and rewarding retirement lifestyle.”
There will be no mention of financial products or investment companies at this workshop, Barber said.

Plans are entering their final stages for the second annual Seguin Housing Fair on Sept. 23 from 1:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Seguin-Guadalupe County Coliseum.
The event is co-sponsored by the City of Seguin, the Seguin Board of Realtors and the Seguin Housing Authority. The idea is simple—to help make dreams of home ownership come true for area residents from all income groups.
Last year's fair brought local lenders, builders, real estate firms, home remodelers and an array of housing-related businesses together for the general public's convenience. Building on last year’s success, the number of exhibitors has been increased this year, and organizers anticipate 300-400 potential homeowners/homebuyers to attend.
Admission to the second annual Seguin Housing Fair is free, and many of the exhibitors as well as other local businesses will be donating gifts for door prize drawings.
A representative from the regional FHA/HUD office will conduct seminars on FHA qualifications at 1:45, 3:45 and 5:45 p.m. Each session will be followed by a question and answer period. New this year will be information on Hood plains and the FEMA Flood Insurance Program.
