2010 Census

As I was flying over the other day, I noticed your quaint town. I decided to make a quick trip into some of the shops to see what I could find. As you may know Christmas is getting close and I am starting to run short of toys, tools, computers, computer gadgets, and big screen TVs, and stuff for moms. I walked up and down the streets and in the mall; I could see the things I needed for all. As I began to shop my helpers (elves) carried the bags of treasures, the clerks in the stores were extremely helpful. The wide range of great products and gifts at reasonable prices were fantastic. The distinctiveness of some of the items I will never find in any other area but here.

At each store everyone helped me pick out what I needed, if they didn’t have it they suggested they would order it in special or maybe the neighbor down the street may have it. Neighbors helping neighbors pick out just the right present for families and friends. This town of Dickinson is friendly, courteous, and willing to help each of their customers. I will certainly come back next year and shop for all of my holiday shopping.

Congress Debates Health Reform Congress continues to debate the question of whether all employers should be required to provide health care coverage to their employees. Congress would make the option simple: either buy coverage or pay a new tax. On the surface it may appear that paying the tax would be cheaper than purchasing coverage. However, under this option overall employer taxes may increase dramatically. Consider the following: The new tax is in addition to all other taxes paid by the employer - no credits are given against other taxes. Employers providing health care coverage receive a tax deduction that lowers overall taxes. Employers do not get the same dollar value from paying a tax as they do receiving a tax deduction To help employers evaluate the tax ramifications of this proposal, we encourage you to use this simple, tax calculator. In just a few minutes, the calculator can give you a rough estimate of how the options will affect your company's bottom line. Unfortunately, the work doesn't end here. None of the reform efforts proposed in Congress will lower the overall cost of health care or reduce health insurance premiums, meaning employers who continue to provide coverage will be trapped in a system of everincreasing costs. These issues must be addressed and we need your help! Tell Congress to drop the employer mandate before it cripples employers nationwide -- and tell them to refocus their efforts on ways to reduce overall health care and premium costs before it's too late .

From the office of: Tasha Gartner & Dream O’Brien 46 1st St W Dickinson, ND 58601 701-456-3390 ROTH IRA CONVERSIONS FOR 2010 A unique opportunity for IRA owners. In 2010, anyone may convert a traditional IRA to a Roth IRA. No income limits will stand in the way of the conversion.1 Should you do it? Here’s why it may (or may not) make sense for you to go Roth next year. Why you might want to consider it. A Roth IRA permits tax-free growth and tax-free income distributions in retirement (assuming you are age 59½ or older and have held your Roth account for 5 years or longer). You can contribute to a Roth IRA after age 70½, without having to take mandatory withdrawals. While contributions to a Roth IRA aren’t tax-deductible, the younger you are, the more attractive a Roth IRA may seem.2 However, older investors have reason to go Roth as well – especially if they don’t really need to withdraw IRA assets. Under present tax law, converting an untapped traditional IRA to a Roth will shrink the size of your taxable estate, and careful estate planning could foster decades of tax-free growth for those IRA assets.3 Currently, if you name your spouse as the beneficiary of your Roth IRA, your spouse can treat the inherited IRA as his or her own after you die and forego withdrawals. So those Roth IRA assets can keep compounding untaxed across the rest of your spouse’s life. If your spouse then names a son or daughter as a beneficiary, that heir has the choice to make minimum withdrawals according to his or her life expectancy, all while the assets continue to compound tax-free. Currently, withdrawals from an inherited Roth IRA are not subject to income tax.3

Why you may want to think twice about it. The IRS regards a traditional IRA-to-Roth IRA conversion as a distribution from a traditional IRA – a taxable event.4 You’ll need to pay taxes on the entire amount of the conversion. Do you have the money to do that? Keep in mind, however: with the market down, many IRA values are lower than they have been for years. That translates to paying less tax on gains. It is also worth remembering that tax rates could increase in the years ahead – another reason why now may be a good time to convert. (You could simply do a partial Roth IRA conversion if converting the full amount would send you into a higher tax bracket.)4 You may be tempted to use the current IRA assets to pay the conversion tax, but should you? If you’re younger than 59½, you’re looking at a 10% penalty on the amount you withdraw, and you’ll lose the chance for tax-free compounding of those assets within the Roth IRA.5 Why you might want to fund a Roth IRA this year. In 2009, any withdrawals from a traditional IRA can be used to fund a Roth IRA.6 Interesting. Why is this so? In years past, mandatory withdrawals from a traditional IRA typically couldn’t be deposited into a Roth IRA. But the federal government has suspended mandatory IRA withdrawals for 2009.7 Any IRA withdrawals made in 2009 are thereby elective withdrawals. So, if your adjusted gross income (AGI) is $100,000 or less, you have an option to fund a Roth IRA with a withdrawal from a traditional IRA – at least through the end of 2009.6 In 2009, you can fund a Roth IRA with after-tax contributions to a 401(k), 403(b) or 457 retirement savings plan. This year, you can take those contributions and convert them to a Roth IRA tax-free, provided your AGI is $100,000 or less. More good news: there is no limit to the conversion amount.1 A potential tax break for those who convert in 2010. If you do a Roth conversion during 2010, you can choose to divide the taxes on the conversion between your 2011 and 2012 federal returns.8 Be sure to consult your tax advisor before you convert. This is a very good idea before you arrange any rollover, trustee-totrustee transfer, or same-trustee transfer of your IRA assets. In any year, you should fully understand the potential tax impact of a Roth conversion on your finances and your estate. Also, remember that while the income limit on Roth IRA conversions will go away in 2010, the income limits on Roth IRA contributions still apply next year and for the foreseeable future.8 These are the views of Peter Montoya Inc., not the named Representative nor Broker/Dealer, and should not be construed as investment advice.

FINANCIAL FOCUS Have You Built Your Investment Pyramid? Article 11— Nov. 16, 2009 Of the “Seven Wonders of the Ancient World,” the only one still in existence is the Great Pyramid of Giza. This tells you something about the strength of the pyramid structure, but it also suggests that the pyramid may be a good metaphor for other endeavors that you wish to endure — such as your investment strategy. In fact, by creating an appropriate “investment pyramid,” you could address your key financial needs and goals. What might this pyramid look like? Consider the following “layers”: • Cash and cash equivalents — The “base” of your pyramid should consist of cash and cash equivalents — short-term investment vehicles that are highly liquid. Without sufficient cash available, the rest of your pyramid could crumble because you might be forced to liquidate longer-term investments to pay for short-term or emergency needs. • Income — The next level up of your pyramid might contain income-oriented investments, such as bonds and Certificates of Deposit (CDs). While these investments may not offer sizable rates of return, they can offer reliable income. • Growth and income — The middle layer of your pyramid should include investments, such as dividend-paying stocks, that offer the potential for both growth and income. (Keep in mind, though, that companies are not obligated to pay dividends and can reduce or eliminate them at any time.) • Growth — The second layer from the top of your pyramid is reserved for growth-oriented investments, such as the stocks of companies whose earnings are expected to grow at an above average rate, relative to the rest of the financial market. As you’ll note, though, the key word is “expected,” because growth stocks can, and do, produce negative returns as well as positive ones. • Aggressive — At the very top of your pyramid are the most aggressive investments. While these investments may offer the highest growth potential, they also usually carry the greatest risk level.

Your total investment mix may include investments

from every part of the pyramid, but how much should go into each layer? There’s no one right answer for everyone. In filling out your investment pyramid, you’ll need to consider your risk tolerance, time horizon, short- and long-term goals and other factors. So, if you are a fairly conservative investor, you might place fewer investment dollars in the “aggressive” layer than someone who was willing to take more chances in exchange for potentially higher returns. However, the various weightings within your investment pyramid will likely change over time. As you near retirement, for example, you may want to move some — but certainly not all — of your investments from the “growth” layer to the "growth and income" or “income” layers. An investment professional can help you review your evolving family and financial situations and make recommendations on what changes you may need to make to your pyramid. Pyramids last a long time. And if you build and maintain your investment pyramid with care, you can keep it working efficiently for many years to come.

Sviata Vechera Holy Supper –

Wheat with honey & poppy seed

Christmas Eve Supper Sviata Vechera begins when the first star appears in the sky on Christmas Eve. Father brings in a sheaf of grain called “didukh” – grandfather. He places it in a corner under the icons. The didukh unites the living and the deceased members of the family. The center piece on the Christmas Eve table is threee kolachi with a candle in the center. A meal of twelve dishes is served. These dishes are: kutia (wheat with honey and poppy seed); meatless borshch; fish; pickled herring; varenyky/pyrohy with potato, sauerkraut, and fruit filling; holubtsi with rice; mushroom gravy; compote with stewed dry fruit; kolach and beverage.

2 cups wheat, picked and washed and dried in the oven for about 45 minutes at 200 degrees ½ cup or more poppy seeds ½ cup honey or a mixture of honey and sugar ¼ cup chopped walnuts Soak wheat in water to cover overnight. Next day simmer for approximately six hours stirring occasionally until desired tenderness. Add additional water if necessary. Season with salt. Sweeten to taste with honey or honey and sugar. Prepare the poppy seed by rinsing until water is clear. Poppy seed can be added whole or ground. To grind, soak poppy seed about 30 minutes in warm water. Drain and grind with finest blade of food chopper or in blender. Stir in poppy seed and chopped nuts. Kutia may be served wither warm or cold.
