Kim Nation speaks to Kiwanis Club

Kim Bruce introduced her Pilot Club friend Kim Nation to speak to the club about a project that the Pilot Club is starting. It is a project to memorialize veterans in our area. The project involves putting bricks with the veteran’s names and other information about them around the three flagpoles that are located behind the Farmer’s Market.

The Police Jury has given their permission for the Pilot Club to do this. These bricks are epoxy-filled and are weather resistant. If something were to happen to the brick it would be replaced. The bricks would be installed by a professional bricklayer.

Steve Bates speaks to Kiwanis Club, June 9, 2018

Kiwanis President-Elect Steve Bates spoke to the Kiwanis club June 9th about the changes in the tax act. For individuals, the biggest change is in the deductions bracket, down 3% in each bracket. The top rate is 37% for joint filing with over $600,000 of taxable income. The standard deduction increase will keep a lot of people from itemizing because the standard deduction will be more. The standard deduction is $12,000 for single individuals and $24,000 for married. If you itemize, home mortgages are deductible up to $750,000 but no second homes. Charitable contributions are at 60 % of taxable income. There is no state income tax deduction. A concern is that people will no longer be giving to charities if they are not able to itemize.
