It’s that time of year again. The time when those who are more fortunate start thinking about ways in which they can give back to the community. Of course, I’m speaking of property tax time. That biannual festival when the lucky home owners of America pay a small percentage of our hard-earned money back to the government so that things like schools, roads and social services can function for the good of everyone. For the record, I’m one of those liberals who neither resented nor felt the extra tax was unfair.

Josh Kleinbaum The Glendale Redevelopment Agency hit the interest-rate jackpot. Thanks to low interest rates and a competitive market, the agency will save $405,000 a year during the next 17 years -- $5.5 million total -- after refinancing its 1993 Tax Allocation bonds. "It's almost double the estimated savings from last month," Director of Development Services Jeanne Armstrong said. The bonds, used primarily to purchase and refurbish the Alex Theatre and to build the Hilton Glendale, were originally purchased in 1990 and refinanced in 1993 at a 5.67% interest rate.

Handing high school students $35,000 with which to play the stock market might not seem like the best way to boost a school endowment, but in 1997, that is what trustees at Flintridge Preparatory School did. The gamble has paid off. Over the years, students in Assistant Headmaster Peter Vaughan's investments class have turned the $35,000 grubstake into a $188,000 portfolio that helps support school arts and athletic programs. When Vaughn launched the class, he half expected his students to gamble away the principal - $35,000 cobbled together by school trustees - on penny stocks.

Smokers should quit for them, us Regarding “Smoking ban goes back to council,” Tuesday: I have a neighbor who smokes. He cares for his family, he smokes outside. Every morning I wake to cigarette smoke in our bedroom. The air carries it into our house. Every evening it wafts into our living room. I close the windows, close the doors. We live in the suburbs in nice houses that are spaced apart. Yet I’m a prisoner while he smokes. My mom and dad both died of cigarette-induced lung cancer and heart diseases.
