Alleghany Ave. Covington, VA i-703-962-8400 VADC RED OAKS SHOPPING CENTER - FAIRLEA Only m recent hmes has there b~en any distinction between plants u-:ed as lood or medicine. Through- oJt history people have used wild w~getables to nourish themselves as they have always provided important dietary vitamins and minerals. Exca- vahons in Neotittlic lake villages in Western England and Switzerland ~how that even our very early an- ces~tors t~ad diets that were ex- tremely w~ried. Inside pots and waste pits remains of crab apple, mustard, strawberry, wild rose and a spinach-like plant called orache have been discovered. All of these nutritious foods also serve as uses in culinary flavorings, cosmetics and medicinal remedies recommended by herbalists. No wonder the long- term objective of herbal medicine is to provide good nutrition by correct- in(.] vitamin and mineral deficiencies in order to promote good health. [ven the animal kingdom has by in- stinct been observed eating large doses of various plants either for prevention or as a cure just like our domestic animals. For example, dogs will eat grass whcn a problem develops. If health 3s a constant vac- illation around a certain point of ref- erence (physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual) in an effort to achieve balance looking to the world of ph:mts provides us with many alter- nahves. Carolyn Hutchison is an herbal Helen Woodward pathfinder m Massachusetts. She feels that modern science has re- moved much of the mysteTy sur- rounding herbs by chemically bIeak- ing down various pkmts acco[dir/g to their vitamin and rmnerat content. In order to rnake this chemical balance aw~ilable to our systems she sug- gests tqer "Feeling fine Tea Blend" For this mlxture she combines 2 ounces each of the following dried herbs: alfalfa, catnip, chamomile, chickweed, cornfrey leaf, fennel, horsetail, lemon balm, mullein, nettle, oatstraw, parsley, pepper- mint, raspberry, rose hips, red clo- ver, shepherd's-purse, spearmint. strawberry leaf wintergreen and yarrow. To this she mixes 1 ounce each of dried kelp, hish moss and thyme. Mix all ingredients and store tn a glass jar away from the light.

SOLIDS & PRINTS 45"-60" WIDE Teenagers working at most sum- mer jobs will be paying Social Secu- rity taxes, Roger B Evans Social Security manager m Covington, said. "Almost all employment in the United States is covered by the So- cial Security system. This means that part of the earmngs from work are withheld as Social Security taxes finance benefits for people currently recewing Social Security. In return, eactq worker earns protec- tion for his or her own future retire- ment as well as protection against the risks ot die, ability or death," Mr Evans said. Social Security taxes this year are 7.65 per cent, Mr Evans said. Employers pay an additional 7.65 per cent for their employees. "Usu- ally an employer takes withholding taxes from each employee's pay- check, but work paid in cash re- quires an employee to take a more active part. Cash tips of $20 or more in a month are subject to Social Se- aunty tax. An employee must make a written report to his or her em- ployer after the end of each month on the amount of hps earned during the prewous month," stated Mr Evans. "Household work paid in cash is often not reported correctly to Social Security. Household work may include babysitting, lawn mow- ing, and other chores. Teenagers should be aware that, if they are paid $50 or rnore by one employer in a calendar quarter, this work is covered by Social Security. Social Security taxes must be deducted from the wages paid and reported by the householder," Mr Evans said. "Under some cucumstances, a person who does household work may be self-employed. For addi- tional information about paying So- cial Security taxes, call the Internal Revenue Service's toll-free phone number, 1-800-424-1040$' Mr Evans added. Questions about Social Security programs may be answered by call- ing Social Security. Greenbrier County residents may call toll-free by dialing '00" and asking for Enter- prise 1135 or 1-800-2345772. The Covington office is located at 214 West Main Street. Small Business Many banks and financial institu- tions will soon be getting notices from the IRS about information re- turns they filed for 1988 that were missing taxpayer identification num- bers ([iNs) or had TINs that did not match those in IRS records. The numbers needed are either the cus- tomers social security number or their employer identification number. The notices, being mailed later this month, will ask the payers to certify that they exercised due dili- gence in getting correct TINs from those to whom they paid interest, dividends or other types of pay- ments. Legislation enacted in 1983 re- quires banks and financial institu- tions (payers) to obtain these num- bers. This is usually done with Form W-9, Request for Taxpayer Identifi- cation Number and Certification, at the time accounts are opened. Pay- ers include TINs on information re- turns, such as Form 1099, they send to the IRS for reporting pay- ments made. With the TINs, the IRa is able to match information returns against tax returns to ensure that the in- come has been correctly reported on the tax returns. later this year, the IRS plans to contact payers about TINs on 1989 information returns that are different from those in IRS records. At that time payers will notify those custom- ers where a discrepancy exists to provide within 30 days a TIN certi- fied as correct. If TIN certification is not provided, payers are required to begin "backup:" withholding of fed- eral income tax at a 20 per cent rate on all future payments. . Taxpayers who get such a notice later this year should review it care- fully as it will explain how to resolve TIN discrepancies.

Extension Fliers -- If you are one of the taxpayers who used the auto- matic four month extension on or prior to April 16 of this year to post- pone the filing of your federal tax re- turn, you have until midnight, August 15 to file your return. Those who fail to file by the Au- gust 15 deadline will face a failure to file penalty plus a penalty and inter- est on whatever tax may be due. Extensions of time to file beyond the four month automatic extension are only granted in extreme hard- ship situations. Remember to note your Social Security number, date of payment and the tax year on your check or money order.. Estimated Tax Payments -- Tax- payers who make estimated tax payments are reminded that their third 1990 payment is due Septem- ber 17. Generally, you must make estimated tax payments quarterly during 1990 if you expect to owe, after subtracting your withholding and credits, at least $500 in tax at the end of the year and your with- holding and credits will be less than the smaller of: (1) 90 per cent of the tax shown on your 1990 return, or (2) 100 per cent of the tax shown on your 1989 return. In addition to the upcoming third quarter payment due September 17, the final quarterly payment is due January 15, 1991.
