Book describes how to find vital records In this age of bureaucratic doc- umentation, everyone has need of copies of records of birth, death, marriage or divorce. An application for benefits from the Veterans Administration or So- cial Security, a passport or mar- riage license requires not only the information in the records but usually copies of the records themselves. All these records are stored permanently by municipalities, counties, states and the Federal government. We all know this, but where each document is kept is frequently unknown. The Consumer Education Re- search Center, (CERC), a na- tional nonproft consumer group, found there was little uniformi- ty on where the records were available and the costs. For this reason CERC has been publish- ing a book entitled Where to Write Worldwide for Vital Records which contains a state- by-state listing of the addresses and telephone numbers of the archive where each record can be found, the cost of a copy of the document and sample form let- ters containing all the informa- tion needed to get these and other vital documents. For those need- ing information from foreign countries, the book contains a list of government offices where you can get help in locating vital records kept in almost every country. CERC has just released an updated 1996 edition. For infor- mation call 1-800-872-0121. More information can be found on the World Wide Web hhtpd/ www.planet.net/cerc. "Pennies from Heaven" fundraiser for B&G Club Cloverdale's third annual "Penny Harvest" will be held the first week of April. Boys and Girls Club members will be go- ing door to door to collect pen- nies set out for them. "There are so many programs out there that are creatively re- cycling products such as metals, plastics, clothing and so on. This fundL##ing drive has struck a wonderful chord with us all, a spokesperson for the project, Jerra Wedge, stated. We all have boxes and jars of pennies collected. They don't seem to give a lot of monetary value on a small scale--however on a larger scale they really add up,  she noted. "This is the children's project. They look at this with eagerness and delight. They go scattering into the neighborhoods to dis- tribute over 2500 flyers and brown bags. The following week you can see them running down the streets with smiles and gig- gleN," Wedge stated. Penny's may also be dropped off at the Boys and Girls Club. An IRA Can Lower Tax Bill For many people who work for companies without a pension plan, setting up an individual retirement arrangement (IRA) can give a dou- ble bonus. It can lower their taxes if they make deductible contributions to the IRA and provides for a more secure retirement. Anyone who has taxable com- pen,ation, such as wages, lips. commissions and taxable alimony. and who win be under age 70 a/_, at the end of the year can set up an IRA. Money can be put into an IRA at any time during the year or by the due date of the tax return for that year, not including extensions. Contributions must be in the form of money, such as cash, check or money order. Property doesn't count. The most that can be con- tributed for any year is $2.000 or taxable compensation, whichever is smaller, For married couples who work. the maximum is $2,000 each. A working spouse can set up a" spousal IRA for'a spouse who has little or no taxable compensation. The maximum combined contribu- tions to the working spouse's IRA and the spousal IRA is $2.250. Publication 590, Individual Retirement A rrangemen ts (IRA.s ). gives more information oa IRAs, including how to compute and report deductible and nontle- ductible contributions, when to start withdrawing money and what actions will result in penalties.

The fishing has been spotty. Most are trolling flash- ers in front of an anchovy down 30-60 feet. The average is still less than one fish per boat. There have been a few boats that have caught and released a few silver salmon while fishing for kings. Please note that king salmon have a black mouth, sil- ver salmon have a light colored mouth (lower gum line). The lim- it for king salmon is two that are 24  or better. All silver salmon must be re- leased safely into the water. Most of the party boats are still book- ing bottom fishing trips, waiting for the salmon fishing to get bet- ter. Salmon fishing opens offthe Sonoma and Matin Coast on March 15. SteelheadlSalmon This may be another weekend to get out and do a little steel, head fishing. The Russian, south fork of the Eel, Mad, and Smith Rivers have all been producing steelhead the Navarro is fish- able but there have not been many fish reported lately. The Garcia and Gualala Riv- ers Reports have been similar. The main Eel and Redwood Creek should be fishable now also. In cloudy water roe and roe imitations are best, in clear- er water spinners, spoons and wigglewarts are effective--as long as you do not spook the fish. Lake Sonoma Bass fishing has been fair to good. Most are throwing spin- ner-baits or slowly fishing rub- berbaits. There have been no reports of catfish this week. Not many have been trolling for trout either. The Yorty Creek boat ramp is closed at this writing and is not scheduled to open until Mar. 15. It is possible to fish this area if you park at the gate and walk in about a quarter of a mile. The main public ramp. is open near the dam with no limitations. The launch fee is $2. Clear Lake .Bass fishinghas been good late- ly. Most are throwing spinner- baits, crankbaits, or tossing jigs and rubberworms into the tules. The catfishing is still fair, espe- cially around the state and coun- ty parks. Most are using nightcrawlers, chicken liver, and anchovies. Upper Blue Lake Fishing remains good at the lake for both fish and shore an- glers. The boat anglers are troll- ing flashers with a worm trailer and size seven rapalas. The shore anglers are using powerbait, salmon eggs and nightcrawlers. Other areas Ice fishing has been excellent at stampede reservoir. Limits of trout have been hitting salmon eggs. A snowmobile or wheeler is required to get in at this writ- ing. Boca reservoir is also pro- ducing trout but only about 1.5 to 2 fish per angler average.
