Bill Crocker June 15, 1941 - March 6, 2012 Bill Crocker passed away after a 5 month battle with cancer. Bill grew up in Pacific Beach, California and graduated from Mission Bay High School. He went on to graduate from San Diego State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree. While in the United States military, Bill served in Da Nang Vietnam and received his Bronze Star. He often said he was proud to be an American and to have served his country. After returning from Vietnam, Bill was employed by Scripps Institute of Oceanography in La Jolla. While there, he had the .wonderful opportunity to use his cartography skills at two separate times on Scripps exploratory ships to South America. After working for Scripps he wanted to work in his beloved Julian. He opened his gem store and loved it. Then economic bad times came around. He then became a cook in a couple of Julian restaurants. Later he worked at Dudley's Bakery as a baker. Bill made some good friends at Dudley's and they became his second family. They loved rock hounding. With Bill's wide knowledge of the desert and Nevada Mountains, they took quite a few trips to rock hound in these areas. In the 1980s Bill earned his Certificate in Gemology. Over the years he became well known in San Diego County for his beautiful faceted gems. Along with that talent Bill was also a talented oil painter. Bill was always painting beautiful scenes of the mountains and deserts. His artwork has been displayed in the Santa Ysabel and Ramona art galleries. Bill was a great son, brother and uncle. He is survived by his Mom, Marge Crocker (Paul Chorbagean), sisters Ginny Babcock (Bill Babcock), Linda Stuart (Bob Stuart), niece, nephews, and great nephews: Dayna, Chad, Bryan, Cole and Trevor Ferrara, and Michael and Daniel Gemeroy. The family wants to thank the La Jolla Veterans' Hospital and Horizon Hospice in Poway. The care given to Bill was so incredible and added to the remaining days of his life. A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. HARD CIDER WIldE COUNTRY CEDARS 6 BEER TASTING PABINC ][Y]ENTS APPLE Ralph Waldo Emerson YESI"ERYEAItS The Julian News 7 Taxes 2013 By Tim Taschler, CMT, CFP Senior Vice President/investments Stifel Nicolaus As tax day approaches and 2011 filings are submitted, it's worth taking a look at what is in store for us in 2013. Taxes are a complex topic as everyone's unique circumstances make generalities difficult. But since they are always with us, and in fact almost always increasing, it's worth paying attention to the changes as they come our way, even if it is done with broad brush strokes. The Congressional Budget Office predicts that, under current law, ihe revenue of the federal government will rise from $2.46 trillion in the current fiscal year, which ends in September, to $2.97 trillion in the following fiscal year. That increase of over a half a trillion dollars is equivalent to 2.9 percent of gross domestic product (GDP), bringing federal revenue as a share of GDP from 15.8 percent this year to 18.7 percent next year. Revenue would continue to rise in future years - as a share of GDP it would increase to 19.8 percent in 2014 and would stay above 20 percent for the remainder of the decade. From where does this higher revenue come? Mostly from you and me as there is an increase in personal tax rates, higher payroll taxes, and increased taxes on dividends and capital gains. Examples include: Top marginal brackets will be going from 35% to 39.6%. The limit on the amount of itemized deductions that can be taken adds another 1.2%.. There is a new 0.9% Medicare tax on single fliers earning $200,000 or more and joint fliers earning $250,000 or more. Capital gains tax rate jumps from 15% to 20%. The tax on dividends goes from 15% to whatever your marginal rate is (as high as 39.6%) A new 3.8% tax is added for Obamacare (for single fliers earning $200,000 or more and married fliers earning $250,000 or more). The estate tax, which is currently is 35%, becomes 55%, and the exemption falls from $5 million to $1 million. So, the Iottom line is that there are large tax increases that will occur next year unless there is legislation to block it. And with this being an election year, it's difficult to handicap the odds for anything to stop the pending changes. Therefore it is best to be aware of, and plan for, the coming changes.

It is in perfect condition. -- Theresa, Surprise, Ariz. A: There were dozens of Goldwater pins issued during his campaign. Some of the most popular ones were a red and blue button with a white arrow pointing to the right, "AU H20 1964," and an elephant with Goldwater's trademark black eye glasses.

Q: In 1991, Kenner had a toy line called the Savage Mondo Blitzers, which was pulled from the shelves after being available for only a very short time. It seemed that parents were upset, not only by the characters looks but also their names. I have four of the sets of four and wonder if they are worth anything. --Ruth, Orlando, Fla. A: The Toy Stable has one of the largest inventories of the Savage Mondo Blitzers figures. They seem to sell for less than $5 each, for example, Bad Audience, $4.99, Bad to the Bone, $2.99, and Aping Wound, $4.99. You can check out others at its website, www.toystable. com.

How much do you think they are worth? -- Josie, Ormond Beach, Fla. A: The New York World's Fair was one of this country's most popular such events. Souvenirs from that fair are fairly common and quite collectible. I contacted several collectors, and they seem to agree that your postcards are probably worth in the $15 to $25 range.
