4--HOGANSVILLE HERALDDTHURSDAY. FEBRUARY 18, 1999 Tax Forms Federal and State tax forms are available at Hogansville Library. Legislation took on new chal- lenges with a different focus this week. HB 331 was passed which would allow people to sell up to four of their own tickets to events such as concerts and sporting events. As of now, this is considered ticket scalp- ing, and is illegal. This bill also de- fines exactly what constitutes a ticket broker. The new regulations include provisions that ticket brokers must maintain a permanent office with a post office box. They must also ob- tain a local business license and be able to post a bond of $150,000 to ensure that they can reimburse cus- tomers. At their office, they must post the refund policy and the face value of tickets. Charitable organiza- tions are exempt under this bill. HB 37, which we also passed this week, declares that any inmate convicted of a sexual offense of a minor would not be allowed visitation by a person under the age of 18. However, the bill does allow visiting of siblings and children of the inmate. We will create the Joint Highway Study Committee to examine chal- lenges brought on by population growth and increasing traffic through- out our great state with the passage of HB 82. The Committee will conduct an overall study of driver safety with a thorough examination of an entire range of issues relating to highway safety and the smooth flow of traffic, freight and passengers through Geor- gia. Georgia has more than 280,000 accidents reported each year. I have introduced what I consider a significant piece of legislation with the potential for having a great im- pact on our families. House Bill 583 will allow a state tax credit for quality child-care expenses that will not ex- ceed 10 percent of the total amount expended for qualified'child care expenses per qualifying child or $1500 per qualifying child, which- ever is less. No taxpayer under this proposal will be entitled to such credit with respect to the same qualified child-care expenses claimed by ,in- other taxpayer. This will most cer- tainly help the parents who struggle to pay child-care along with their other expenses. This bill will require a fiscal note to indicate the actual cost to the State of Georgia. I made the official request in early January to the budget office with no response at the time of this report. Companion legislation that is part of Governor Barnes' agenda was con- sidered and passed the House this week. HB 278 and HB 279 :ire de- signed to reinforce the Georgia Sun- shine Law. HB 278 would require officials to stale under oath their rea- sons for closing government meet- ings and HB 279 would allow a fine of $100 for violations of the state law requiring governments to make their records available to the public. Both bills are designed to force govern- ment agencies to cooperate with the public and the press when either wants more access to the information. HB 181, the Georgia Teen Smok- ing Act, also received quite a bit of discussion this week but was tabled by a vote of 109 to 53. This legislation would make it a misdemeanor for any- one under the age of 18 attempting to buy cigarettes. Originally, the bill would have suspended u person's driver's license; however, after going through the committee process, the penalty was c hun gad so a person would have to do 20 hours of community service and attend an anti-smoking lecture. To be considered again by the House, the bill has to be voted off of the table which does not happen very, often.

Sunday School is at 10 a.m. At the 11 o'clock worship service, Rev. Prescott's message was taken from Romans 1:15,16, Hebrews 3:7- 8, Isaiah 55:6, 1st Corinthians 2:2-6. Today is the day, for tomorrow never comes. We had 20 visitors. Evening services are at 7 p.m. His text was taken from Psalms 34:3-6, God is a big God. The service began with atestim, :rvice bcforeRev. Prescott's message. We enjoyed a very spiritual meeting.

A POEM ANO OelmON By M. Rosser Lunsford (Poet Laureate Putnam County) Shadows That Walk There are shadows that walk my floor at night, sometimes bringing anxiety and fright; I know in my mind they are kin passed on, for who could forget one of their own... Even from their graves I know they still care, for no love was dead when we put them there; every single day they are still around, for love doesn't die with six feet of ground... I still try in vain to speak to them all, but death is final on earth with his call; happy I ant the shadows never balk, for the time will come when our shadows will walk... Goodwill needs donations!
