When wealth passes within a family it can be bittersweet. Beyond the sadness for a lost loved one, is the newfound obligation to make smart decisions with what has been inherited. While these aspects can be challenging, having additional assets to support your goals is also a gift. Let’s use an example to show what your options are. You’ve just inherited shares of stock from your grandfather in the amount of 50,000 shares of XYZ Bank with a value of $2,500,000. Your grandfather was president of the bank and he had owned the stock for years. You are thinking, “Wow, this is great….now I can retire or work by choice.” The problem is that the stock is now your major investment asset. You ask yourself, “What if XYZ Bank goes out of business? What if they are bought out by another bank? What might happen to the value of my stock and retirement plans if this were to occur?”

The solution to the problem is to diversify. But how do you do this? You may be emotionally attached to the stock because your grandfather bequeathed it to you upon his death and you feel an obligation to “keep the investment within your family.” Let’s examine some solutions to the problem.

Sell your shares This obviously frees up funds that can be used to diversify your portfolio. You might consider selling shares over time. This approach will not trigger a huge tax impact in one year and will allow you to participate in future growth with your remaining shares. For most working Americans, capital gains are taxed at

much lower rates than ordinary income, so paying the taxes may not be such a bad thing.

gives the purchaser of your call the future right to purchase the stock at a price that is higher than the current market price of the stock. The proceeds you receive from selling this call can be treated as income, which helps offset a potential price decline in the stock. If the stock price rises above the current value, the owner of the call will most likely exercise it, forcing you to then sell your shares at the agreed upon price. Your participation in the upside appreciation is limited by the strike price named in the covered call.

Sell a covered call Selling a “covered call”

See MONEY, page 15

Purchase a put You may want to protect yourself in the short term against the risk of a substantial drop in price. You can do this by purchasing a form of insurance called “options.” Purchasing a “put option” places a minimum price under the value of your shares that you have the right to sell your shares at even if the stock price declines below it. As a “floor” price that is locked in, you can limit the amount of loss you could incur.

Collar A “collar” combines the above 2 strategies. You purchase a protective put and sell call options. Each option specifies a certain share price (called the “strike” price) at which a holder may exercise the option. The proceeds from selling the covered calls would offset the cost of purchasing the protective puts. The strike prices of a collar should not be too close to your stock’s current market price. A financial professional can help you select strike

TAKE 2 / It’s a dog’s world LIFESTYLE

Patrice Serrani’s career has gone to the dogs and she couldn’t be happier. She is the creator and owner of a new product called Puppy Dust and tails are wagging. Serrani, a mother of two, is a New York transplant who moved to California 20 years ago. She would be described in some circles as a ‘tall glass of water’ —attractive, leggy, great hair and clothes — if she weren’t so incredibly nice, it would be easy for me to hate her. But she’s terrific: smart, and right on target with her latest venture. Her creativity and entrepreneurial skills led to careers as disparate as an editor of GQ magazine in New York and presently a mortgage broker here in Montecito. But even these weren’t enough for this energetic and enterprising woman: Along with her husband Dale, she created Brand X, a company designed to incorporate all her additional projects from jewelry design to clothing production. Makes me tired just to think of it. Did I mention that she’s an avid gardener as well? Patrice credits her industriousness with a mind that is always thinking of “why hasn’t someone invented that or created this?” Her new product is the result of dealing

to defining the brand. Puppy Dust has truly captured her heart as evidenced in the slogan “sprinkling a little dust of love.” She is passionate about the product and credits some of her confidence to her age and experience. “Had I had this much confidence when I was 25 years old, I would’ve conquered the world,” she said. Then she smiled, “But hey, it’s not too late.” I sprinkle a little Puppy Dust on his chow, Henry cleans his plate and I think, “Where was this when I was trying to get my kids to eat broccoli?”

Nadal pulls out of big tennis match

Rafa Nadal was forced to pull out of his semi-final against Andy Murray at the Sony Ericsson Open because of a recurrence of a knee injury. Nadal, who has had problems with his knees before on the American hardcourts, apologised for withdrawing from the Masters series event, but said he had to. "I am not ready to compete today. I am very sorry for the fans. I'm very sorry for the tournament. I'm very sorry for everybody who were ready to watch the match on the television," Nadal told a news conference. "I take no pleasure from this but I cannot do anything else. I am not ready to compete, and I cannot go on court and lie to everybody." Murray, the Miami champion in 2009, was gifted his second walkover of the tournament after Canadian Milos Raonic pulled out of their third round match with an ankle injury.

VERY BRIDE wants to look her best on the big day but working out and eating right are easier said than done under the stress of wedding planning. Personal trainers have joined florists, caterers and DJs as staples in the wedding planning process. CrossFit Pacific Coast created a specialty program designed to provide any bride with tools to reach her fitness goals in the healthiest way possible over eight weeks. This program includes nutrition planning, meal planning, training sessions and more. “We know this program will have an extremely high success rate, because we’ve removed the variables and potential excuses,” said CrossFit Pacific Coast co-owner and programmer Eric Malzone. The program begins with a com-

plete fitness assessment of the brideto-be with her personal certified CrossFit trainers. They review her background in fitness and nutrition, log measurements and determine her goals and expectations. “We know from our experience training women at our gym that brides who go through this program will leave looking and feeling their best on their wedding day,” said Malzone. Many of the current athletes at CrossFit were introduced to the sport while getting in shape for their wed-

ding and continued their training afterward. The eight-week program includes a customized fitness and nutrition plan, four private training sessions per week, one nutrition review per week, phone and email support, a high-powered juicer and two meals per day delivered to the bride’s door. Every aspect of the program is customized to the individual, including daily meals prepared to the bride’s specifications by local culinary chef Jean Paul Luvanvi. Traver Boehm and Eric Malzone founded CrossFit Pacific Coast in June 2009. CrossFit recently moved to a new facility at 220 E. Cota St., featuring over 3,000 square feet of workout space and a team of six certified coaches.

Payton to appeal suspension

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton will appeal his one season suspension for his role in the team's "bounty" scandal, the National Football League's (NFL) network said on Friday. The network, citing an unnamed source, said Payton was expected to "seek guidance on the amount of time he will have to prepare his appeal, and will attempt to obtain the full reports from NFL security regarding the bounty evidence against him." The report said former Saints defensive coach Gregg Willliams, now with the St. Louis Rams, would not appeal his penalty. He was suspended indefinitely in the wake of the payfor-pain scandal. The NFL would not comment on the report.

Golf’s Michelson surges into tie

Defending champion Phil Mickelson rocketed into a threeway tie for the lead at the Houston Open in Humble, Texas on Friday when the rain-delayed first round was finally completed. The American left-hander, one under with 15 holes remaining when play was suspended on Thursday after thunderstorms swept across Redstone Golf Club, carded a seven-under-par 65 to join Carl Pettersson and Angel Cabrera at the top. Swede Pettersson and Argentina's Cabrera had both completed their rounds in calm, overcast conditions on Thursday before play was halted for the day. "I played really well," Mickelson told reporters after mixing eight birdies with a lone bogey. "There was no wind. The conditions were ideal. The greens were immaculate. "If you could get it on the surface, you felt like you could make some putts," added the four-times major winner, who totalled only 22 putts in the opening round.

From meeting to marriage

As spring approaches in Santa Barbara there’s just no hiding the glorious romanticism of our lustrous paradise. And with the first blossoms of spring comes what I like to call Wedding Fever. And my bride and I have it big time. With just three weeks to JERAMY go until our big day it seems quite surreal to ponder everything that still needs to be done to make sure our wedding goes off without a hitch. Between our parents, caterers, florists, decorators and photographers, our heads are spinning. Thankfully, our wedding coordinator, Maria Long, is doubly skilled at reining us in and making sure we’re all on track. In order to fully understand our story, I need to start at the beginning. Meeting Kelsi and I met for our first date at Arch Rock Fish in downtown Santa Barbara in January 2011. We adhered to the typical blind date formalities of “What do you do for a living?” and “What’s your favorite color?” Etc. We had a great time getting to know each other and once we finished our meal we realized we weren’t quite ready for the night to end. We continued to talk over a cocktail and eventually made our way to Dargan’s where we challenged a duo to a game of

pool and won. It was instantaneously obvious that this girl was the one for me. Eight months later I found myself shopping for an engagement ring. Beside a car or a house, it’s probably one of the largest purchases of your lifetime and is no GORDON easy feat. I decided that there was no store-bought engagement ring that could come close to matching Kelsi’s beauty so I commissioned Corrine (www.corrinejewelry to design a one-of-a-kind ring that was sure to knock her socks off. I called Kelsi’s parents and invited them out to dinner, just the three of us. I explained to them how much I loved their daughter and asked for their blessing for us to be married. They were delighted and we talked about future plans, the possibility of children and our religious views. The Proposal On September 15, 2011, I packed a picnic basket of fruit, cheese and champagne and Kelsi and I headed to Hendry’s beach for a sunset stroll. We walked down the beach and set up our blanket, popped open the bottle of Veuve and reminisced on the past nine months together. I knew then and there that I had made the right decision and I pulled

out the ring and asked my best friend to be my wife. A tear came to her eye as she grabbed me and held me tight. “Oh my gosh, oh my gosh,” she repeated. I smiled and asked politely “Is that a ‘Yes’?” It was. As the sun drifted slowly into the Pacific Ocean, I asked Kelsi if she wanted to grab a drink at the Boat House. As an added surprise, I asked several of our closest friends to meet us there to celebrate the momentous occasion and as we walked into the restaurant we were greeted with their warmth and love. It was truly a special day. But it was only the beginning.

The Wedding Almost immediately we began planning the wedding. We both knew we didn’t want a super long engagement so we booked our venue and selected April 21 as our date. Since then we’ve laughed, cried and argued about almost every aspect: The guest list, location, decorations, invitations and, of course, booze. The only thing we actually agreed on and have stuck to was the menu: Mexican food. We quickly realized that what mattered the most is that we will be spending the rest of our lives together.

The perfect proposal

GOOD PROPOSAL already has the “Who,” “What,” and “Why” sorted, so let’s talk “Where.” Between the city’s almost mandated beauty standards for all new buildings and the natural environment there’s no shortage of romantic places, public or private, to pop the question. Let’s go through what are just a few of the highlights. East, West, and Ledbetter beaches are all conveniently on Cabrillo Boulevard, but they also have the highest concentration of tourists. Butterfly Beach across from the Four Seasons can be crowded but, being the only beach to face west, you can sit on the sand and watch the sun set on your last day of singlehood. For something a little more off the beaten path, try Mesa Lane beach, take a walk down the 240 steps. If you go between tides you can find yourself a nice cove along the cliffs. If you don’t mind walking above a


cliff, the Douglas Family Preserve (aka: Wilcox Property) has excellent walks. Pathways along the edge offer spectacular views of the ocean. There’s the occasional grove of trees for those who want a little shade while they’re down on one knee. There’s also beach access. Mind the nudists if you head toward More Mesa on the right (or don’t). A ways further out is the Butterfly Preserve. If you’re in town in December or January, a short walk will get you to this Monarch Butterfly migration site. Come out in the sun and the orange beauties will be flying above your head while you’re down on one knee. Then there are the Santa Barbara Classics. The Courthouse can serve as a one-stop shop for all those narrowing down their nuptials. Walk through the lower levels and take in the Spanish architecture in the most photographed building in the city. Then head up the stairs to the Clock Tower. If the climb hasn’t taken her breath away, the panoramic view

of the city should do the trick while still giving her enough air to say “Yes.” Afterwards you can head straight down to the Hall of Records and apply for a marriage license (between 8 a.m and 4:30 p.m —another “When?” for you), and even reserve one of the Courthouse’s three venues. When all that’s finished, celebrate

As the months turn into weeks and the weeks into days, I am more and more excited to begin this next stage of my life. I love you, Kelsi.

(Reuters Health) - Many tasks can be tackled more quickly now than 50 years ago, but delivering a baby is not one of them, a new U.S. government study finds. Compared with the 1960s, U.S. women have in recent years spent two to three hours longer in labor, according to researchers at the U.S. National Institutes of Health. The extra time is spent in the first stage of labor -- the longest part of the labor process, before the "pushing" Sudoku #1 8 6 3 5 1 9 3 2 4 7 5 8 5 8 6 1 7 9 1 2 3 4 2 7 9 3 7 6 6 5 4 9 1 2 8 4 Sudoku #3 3 8 5 2 2 6 9 5 1 4 7 8 7 5 4 9 8 9 1 6 6 3 2 7 5 1 6 4 4 2 8 3 9 7 3 1

don’t count them out. There’s everyone’s favorite Alice Keck Park Memorial Gardens. It tends to bring in the crowds, but it’s easy enough to find a secluded corner amid all the native shrubbery. Elings Park isn’t for weddings only if you’re up for a little hike. There’s a myriad of trails, picnic tables, and spectacular views. Franceschi Park up on Mission Ridge is yet another park that holds a breathtaking view of the city. For a real taste of ocean nature, go to Shoreline Park

at low tide. Head down to the beach and scramble out on the tidal pools (but bring some gear if you’re a down on one-knee type—oh and there’s another “When?” for you). If you’re up for something a little more unusual, try the Zoo at off hours. It’s not too difficult to find some secluded spot after a little animal voyeurism or a ride on the train (however if squealing ensues it may not go unnoticed). You’ve got a small taste of the “Wheres” of Santa

stage. New moms, themselves, are different now than 50 years ago; on average, they're older and weigh more, and their newborns are bigger too. "But even when we take these changing demographics into account, labor is still longer," lead researcher Dr. Katherine Laughon, of the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, said in an interview. "We weren't able to fully

address the potential reasons with this study," Laughon said. One partial explanation may be epidural pain relief, which is far more common now than 50 years ago. Epidurals are known to slow labor down by about 40 to 90 minutes, Laughon said. And many women may gladly trade the extra time in labor for the pain relief. From there, the explanations get more speculative. Laughon noted that many

more women now have labor inductions or planned cesarean sections versus decades ago. So women who actually go into spontaneous labor these days may differ somehow from their counterparts of 50 years ago. But whatever the underlying reasons, Laughon said the findings suggest that doctors may need to rethink the definition of "normal" labor -- a concept that's based on what was the norm for women a half-century ago.

prices that avoid triggering adverse tax consequences.

Prepaid variable forward agreement Do you want immediate liquidity? You can sign a contract to sell your shares later at a minimum specified price at a future date. You receive most of the payment (typically 80% to 90%) today, when the contract is signed. When the maturity date is reached, you have 2 options: (1) settle the agreement with a cash payment, or (2) surrender the appropriate number of shares, which will vary depending on the stock’s price at the time of delivery. In the meantime, your stock is held as collateral, and you can use the upfront payment to purchase other securities to help diversify. A tax professional should be consulted before using this strategy. Exchange your shares You could trade some of

your shares in an “exchange fund.” This is a private placement limited partnership that pools your shares with those contributed by other investors who also may have concentrated stock positions. After a set period (usually 7 years), each of the exchange fund’s shareholders is entitled to a prorated portion of its portfolio. Taxes are postponed until you sell those shares. Result – you can exchange your shares in XYZ Bank for a diversified basket of other stocks, while minimizing taxes. Charitable remainder trust Do you want income rather than growth? Consider transferring your shares to a Charitable Remainder Trust (CRT). You receive a tax deduction when you make the contribution. The trustee can sell the stock without paying capital gain taxes and invest the proceeds in income-producing securities. The income that is generated from these investments will be paid out to you. When the trust is terminated (at a future date


specified in trust document), the assets are retained by the charity. This option allows you to convert your bank stock into an income stream for a period of years, gain a tax deduction, and help out a charity you are passionate about. The old adage is true; never have your eggs in one basket. Concentrated stock positions can be managed in ways that reduce your risk exposure while still providing income and growth for your future goals. With the complexities of investment, tax and legal considerations, it is best to consult professionals who can help you navigate a path that is best for your situation.
