UNMARRIED COUPLES AND MONEY Married couples have it relatively easy: they can purchase jointly, file taxes jointly, and when one dies, the other may get the assets, even without a will. For couples who don't marry - or can't - it's more difficult. What may be automatic for mmTied couples nmst be put down in writing for the umved. They need durable powers of attorney for each other, including health-care power of attorney. They need a will. A cohabitation contract formalizes the relationship now and protects like a prenuptial agreement ifa couple breaks up. Unmarried couples do not qualify tbr joint tenancy for the entirety, but they can have tenancy with the right of survivorship and tenancy in common. The first avoids probate in case of death; the other lets owners share unequal amounts, depending on what each invested. So far, umnarried couples nmst file taxes as singles but can allocate deductions to maximize the tax benefit. Many families need to put their financial planning in writing.

UPDATE AUDREY ELLIS Eastern Plumas Chamber of Commerce Fall colors, fall festivals, Halloween, are all part of au- tumn in Plumas County. We had so many visitors to the chamber looking for fall colors and giving out the leaf peepers package. It's so good to chat to everyone, we even had people from England coming to visit and they were in awe of all the colors and the area. We had a great Fall Festival in Portola and raised much- needed funds for the Feather Arts Community Center and Portola Family Resource Cen- ter. The kids loved the bounce house, courtesy of the Railroad Days Committee. NASCAR # 24, Jeff Gordon, was on display for families to have their pic- tures taken; Pete Rhodes PA & Sound entertained us all after- noon with his music and karaoke and Irina Elliot did a season great job in piano playing in the art center. We had some great tabletop displays in the community arts center, Oregano donated a tabletop display in a silent auction. Look out for a bigger and bet- ter Fall Festival next year! Grizzly Creek Ranch, cour- tesy of Sierra Nevada Jour- neys, hosted a Safe Trick of Treat night, more than 500 people attended the free-for- kids night, with games, candy, haunted hay ride, drawings, costume competitions and cabins decorated indifferent themes for Halloween. The chamber sponsored a cabin and dressed it as a witches' coven. We were 'Hap- py Witches;' check out our Facebook page and see the pic- tures from that event. It is def- initely going to be an annual event for the community. I would like to welcome new members to the chamber: Dol- lards-Sierra Energy Station in Portola; New Auto's Inc., Chico; and Plumas Rural Set- vices- Community Connec- tions and R & R Computer So- lutions in Portola.
