        Are chicks, ducks, rabbits really necessary?

            Federal tax burden numbers disturbing

            Did you realize that nearly half of American households will owe nothing to the federal government in income tax for 2010, and some of them will actually get back more money than they paid in because of tax credits?

                There are things parents teach, or attempt to teach, their children. One involves money – earning it, saving it, spending it, giving it to the needy, et cetera. Teaching saving, Editor Don Whitten writes, is getting tougher and tougher, especially with savings producing little to no return that would provide motivation and incentive. (April 11, 2011, Page 4A)
