Quad Ci~ Herald Dec 13:2001 Pnoe 5 The Wenatchee office of the De- partment of Revenue is holding a free New Business Outreach workshop to help new and small businesses un- derstand how to report their state taxes. The workshop will be held on January 15, from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Douglas county Fire Sta- tion, 377 Eastmont Ave, East Wenatchee. Revenue staff members will explain the states excise taxes and par- ticipants will have the opportu- nity to ask questions about how taxes specifically apply to their businesses. Tax reporting classi- fications, deductions, and sales tax collection and record keeping requirements will also be discussed. Participants will receive a work- book, which answers, the most common questions asked by busi- nesses as well as copies of de- partment rules and regulations. New businesses will also have the opportunity to volunteer for tax consultation visits to ensure that they are reporting properly.

The liaisons are close to the patients, Dunmead said, and can pass their concerns on to the TRCA members. In addition, it is important to know what the workers are thinking, and the li- aisons can help with that, too. Dunmead said part of TRCA's job is to encourage more coopera- tion between its member facilities. Better coordination in operation and procedures, things from purchas- ing to continuing education, would benefit everyone, she said. People want a hospital and doc- tors readily available in case of emergencies, she said, but many hospital district residents go out of the area for non-emergency care. But neither hospitals nor doctors can survive on emergencies alone. Patients need to know that. In addi- tion, there is an erroneous percep- tion, Dunmead said, that rural health care is not as good as that in cities. Patient education is an important part of TRCA's job; the ultimate goal is to provide superior care. About t51 kids (and most of the Brewster cops) came to the Rio The- ater in Brewster on Saturday after- noon for a movie, a visit with Santa and a lot of fun at the annual Cops and Kids Christmas Party. "'The cops had fun. I don't know about the kids," said Sergeant Tim Rieb. Cops and kids alike watched the movie (the kids said it was a really good movie, Rieb said); Santa came along later to hand out candy. Many children entered the winter safety poster contest and "'some of the post- ers were just awesome," Rieb said, showing a lot of creativity. About 54 sleds were awarded. Someofthe post- ers will be on display in the window at Hometown Pizza. "The kids were very well-be- haved," he said. "They just made it so easy and so fun." But it also took help from a number of teen and adult vol- unteers, including the owners of Rio Theater, 7 Street Market, Brewster Ace Hardware and Brewster Market- place. Brewster High School students from Pat Shelton's class helped stuff the candy, and made it possible to finish the candy-stuffing-in-bags project in about 45 minutes. Okanogan County Fire District No. 5 ambulance personnel allowed the candy-stuffing crew to use their hall. e Santa made an appearance at the Cope and Kids Party Saturday in Brewstar. Wm. E.

Can a creature touch anything that takes i Place in heaven? What voice of man has greater authority, greater knowledge, and has more impact then the voice's of all these heavenly entities? Like John, we ought to be listening to what heaven is saying; more importantly what the LAMB says. "This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; he, ar jm him." Matt. 17: 5. "This is my be! o,v, ed Son: hear h/mY Mark 9: 7. "This is my beloved Son: h/m Luke 9: 35.

A small entrance hall tree, placed on a table, could be embellished with holiday cards tied with yarn. A family room tree, adorned with family photos, children's creations and family heir- loom pieces, will help preserve memories for years to come.
