8 The Julian News PET CORNER by Cleo & Brad Conrad As more cases of West Nile virus-associated illness have been diagnosed in people and horses, communities have taken steps to prevent spread of the virus. Mosquito control is the most effective means of preventing spread of the West Nile virus, and many communities are including spray application of pesticides in their control programs Although approved pesticides for mosquito control pose minimal risk when used by professionals, the ASPCA Animal Poison Con- trol Center offers the following tips to help pet owners limit their pets' exposure to these pesticides: Know when pesticides will be sprayed in your community. Keep pets indoors during times when pesticides are being sprayed, Elderly or debilitated animals or those with pre- existing health conditions such as heart disease or asthma may be more sensitive to airborne pesticides and chemicals. Close windows and turn off window-unit air conditioners when spraying is taking place in the immediate area. Bring pet dishes, toys, and other items inside while pesticides are being sprayed. If these items have been accidentally exposed to the spray, wash the items with soap and water and rinse well before reintroducing the items to your pets Horses should be kept in their stalls or in a lean-to during spraying Cover water troughs and water buckets during spraying. Cover fish ponds during spraying as fish can be sensitive to certain pesticides , if you suspect that your pet is experiencing difficulties, contact your veterinarian immediately. West Nile virus is spread by the bite of an infected mosquito and can infect people and animals. Wild birds, horses, and humans are the species most often affected; however, the virus has also been identified in cats, dogs, bats, chipmunks, skunks, squirrels, and domestic rabbits Although these latter species may become infected, they rarely develop clinical signs of disease.

I Nationally Known Locally Owned r:m' [311:] 760 765 1920 Propane Service Howdy from Lake Cuyamaca! We are excited about the new strain of rainbow known as the" California Gold Trout." Five hundred pounds of our 2000-pound delivery from Whitewater were this exotic color variation The body is a golden yellow color with a pink stripe down the side. They are also more catchable and bite better propor- tionately than did the regular rainbows. The weekend bite has been disap- pointing. The trout are the most accom- modating with a few limits at Lone Pine and the dike. The dike seems to be where the "gold" trout are hanging out. Bait is best The crappie and buUheads have not regained their enthusiasm. You really have to hunt for them. Best Trout Bait: Inflated crawlers or Power Bait, 2-foot leader off the bottom Fish an open bail and move it every2 minutes. Best Trout Spot: Dike and Lone Pine Tree. Best Trout Lures: Panther Mar- tins or Trout Teasers. Notable: No fish over 3 Ibs. or limits under 34 minutes. Fly Fishinq: Small streamers (Size 10) are taking some trout. Olive, black, and purple are the preferred colors. The dry fly activity is still limited to crappie at dusk. Check out our innovative web site www.lakecuyamaca.org for a new set of pages that gives GPS coordinates on the structure and habitat in the lake. We also have a GPS printout in the tackle shop. Prognosis: Whitewater will add another 1200 pounds of their great rainbows to the now 65 degree fish soup The trout should be getting happier. This means more trout on the stringer and more happy anglers. STATE'S INCOME TAX RATES DROP FOR 2003 DUE TO INDEXING California taxpayers will pay slightly less in income taxes next year due to indexed tax rates for 2003, announced the Franchise Tax Board " (FTB). "Our tax system is based on , fairness, and indexing the state's tax rates ensures that people do not pay more in taxes year to year simply because of inflation," said State Controller and FTB Chair Steve Westly. The tax rates have been indexed by 2.2 percent for the 2003 tax year, which means that the average family will pay less in state income taxes if their income was unchanged from last year. Indexing takes the inflation rate into account and adjusts tax brackets, filing requirement thresholds, the standard deduction, and certain credits The FTB computes the indexed values using the inflation rate as measured by the California Consumer Price Index for all urban consumers from July 1, 2002, to June 30, 2003. Last year's inflation rate measured 1.5 percent. The FTB designs the minimum filing requirement thresholds to ensure that most people who will not owe taxes are not required to file a tax return. The FTB adjusts these tables each year to include the added senior exemption and the dependent exemption credits. The tax threshold [the amount of income reached where a tax liability is incurred] has risen to $10,177 of adjusted gross income for single and married filing separate taxpayers and $20,302 for married, surviving spouse, and head of household taxpayers. The standard deduction will increase for single or married filing separate taxpayers from $3,004 to $3,070. For married, qualifying widow(er), or head of household taxpayers, the standard deduction increases from $6,008 to $6,140. The personal exemption credit increases for single, married filing separate, or head of household taxpayers from $80 to $82 and for married or surviving spouses from $160 to $164. The dependent exemption credit changes from $251 to $257 for each dependent. Other tax credits affected by indexing include the Joint Custody Head of Household Credit, Dependent Parent Credit, Qualified Senior Head of Household Credit, and the Renter's Tax Credit. HAYNES MEASURE TO CLARIFY RENT CONTROL IN MANUFACTURED HOUSING COMMUNITIES BECOMES LAW Sacramento, Calif. -- Governor Davis signed AB 1173 by Assembly- man Ray Haynes (R-Murietta) which clarifies that a mobile home park space is exempt from rent control if the mobile home owner's principal residence is out of California. Currently, if a Californian has a mobile home they use as a secondary vacation house, it is exempt from rent control; however, out-of-state residents were inadvertently left out of this exemption. Rent control is adminis- tered by local governments and is costly to the taxpayers in those corn- munities. Out-of-state residents are able to use the existing loophole to take advan- tage of a California law designed to assist those who otherwise could not afford a home It is neither fair nor equitable that those who cannot find affordable manufactured housing in their community are forced to subsidize non-Californians who can afford a principal home as well as a beach house or desert property. AB 1173 also addresses nonfull- time residents who have been skirting the intent of the law to have their home "actively held available for sale" to avoid rent increases. This bill more clearly defines what criteria must be met to not include homeowners who just put a sign in their home and never return calls from potential buyers or agents. "Rent control is intended to benefit full-time community residents. Out-of- state part-time residents who meet the expense of a principal residence along- side a manufactured home will no longer be able to unjustly benefit from rent control," explained,Assemblyman Haynes.

This program offers eye exams and care to seniors who are without an ophthalmologist (a medical eye doctor) To see if you, a loved one or a friend 65 and older is eligible to receive a referral for an eye exam and care, call 1-800-222-EYES (3937), 24 hours, seven days a week, year round. "By age 65, one in three Ameri- cans has some form of vision-limiting disease. Unfortunately, many aren't aware they have a disease or believe poor vision is a natural part of the aging process," said David J. Fuerst, MD, president of the California Academy of seniors with the message that proper eye care is a significant component of their overall health care." EyeCare America (ECA), a public service foundation of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, operates the largest public service program in American medicine, including indivi- dual eye care programs for seniors, glaucoma, and diabetes. All eligible callers receive a referral to one of 7,200 ECA volunteer ophthalmo- logists. The seniors program provides a comprehensive eye exam and treat- ment for any condition detected in the initial visit for up to one year at no out- of-pocket cost. Here in California, EyeCare America and its 619 Seniors Program volunteer ophthalmologists have icans nationwide. EyeCare America's Seniors Program has received more than 644,000 calls; provided service to 347,000; and treated more than 180,000 cases of eye disease. Volunteer physicians have agreed to accept Medicare or other insurance as payment in full with no out-of-pocket expense to the patient. Individuals without insurance of any kind are not billed. EyeCare America (ECA) encourages all seniors to have their eyes examined annually. The Seniors Program is designed for seniors without an ophthalmologist and is cosponsored by the Knights Templar Eye Foundation, Inc.
