Mussels -- In Tacony Creek?
On the last Friday of August,
Tookany/Tacony Watershed Partnership (TTF) worked with the Partnership
for Delaware Estuary (PDE) to
reintroduce freshwater mussels at
two locations in the Tacony Creek.
Fifty freshly tagged Elliptio
complanata, or Eastern Elliptio, were
tucked into the silty substrate of the
creek. The mussels, which average 2-3"
long, are transplants from healthy
populations farther up the Delaware
River. The mussels were tagged with
a number and small chip so that
scientists can find them on return
visits to monitor their health and
growth.
Freshwater mussels filter the water
in the creek as they feed. Years ago,
streams throughout the region were
loaded with many species of
freshwater mussels. Now, due to
pollution and other environmental
factors, they are the most imperiled
of all plants or animals in America.
Transplanting small groups of mussels
into the creek will help the
Partnership for the Delaware Estuary
determine whether Tacony Creek is
ready for larger scale mussel
reintroduction efforts.
The group has participated in mussel
surveying efforts across the
watershed, after receiving PDE
training, for three years. This mussel
seeding would not have been possible without the
hard work of over 60 volunteers at numerous
surveying events. TTF looks forward to continuing
to work with PDE on this very exciting, important
effort. They were also happy that Karen Young,
Executive Director of theFairmount Water Works,
a key mussel partner, joined in for this special
morning.

Safety Inspection Report 24th Police Garden of Reflection
released on Public Pools District
9/11 Ceremony
City Controller Alan Butkovitz
released the Review of Safety
Measures at Philadelphia’s Public
Pools that found almost 70 percent
of the facilities were maintained in a
safe, secure manner.
The Controller’s Office conducted
the review of the 81 city-operated
pools and spraygrounds to ascertain
whether any hazardous conditions
existed. Of the total water
recreational sites, 27 did contain
conditions that ranged from very
minor to potentially unsafe.
“Many of the issues we observed
can easily be corrected if appropriate
actions are taken by Parks and
Recreation,” said Butkovitz.
Some of the conditions included the
following:
* Uneven or cracked concrete on
pool decking at 15 pools, which could
create possible tripping hazards,
* Blocked drains that caused
standing water at five locations,
which could create slipping hazards,
* At two swimming pools, chlorine
chemicals were in an area where
patrons could access, and
* A broken pool ladder marked
with yellow caution tape blocking
access to a section of the pool was
observed at the Morris Estate pool.
While the Controller’s Office was
conducting the onsite inspections,
there was an incident at the O’Connor
Pool located at 26th and South
Streets where three children
swimming in the pool were shocked
Local Issues Found
Piccoli - Uneven Pavement,
Clogged Drains/Puddling
Scanlon
Pool Fill Pipe Broken
Heitzman
Broken Pavement
by an alleged electrical current at
the facility. Since the investigators
had not examined the facility prior
to the incident, additional information concerning the incident was
requested by investigators from
Parks and Recreation.
According to Controller Butkovitz,
Parks and Recreation responded by
issuing a Pool Plan of Action and
Repair Protocol. These measures
included insulating electrical
equipment around pool motors and
removing unnecessary lighting
circuits in pools areas.
“The Department indicated that
actions would be taken to prevent
any potential electrical issues,” said
Butkovitz. ”More importantly, it
stated that in the case that an
emergency repair is needed during
operating hours, the pool will be
closed until the work is completed.”
“It is also anticipated that the
conditions listed in our report will be
corrected over the year to ensure a
safe swimming season in 2015,” said
Butkovitz.

poems and words from various
guests. A flower will be placed
recognizing the 18 Bucks County
Residents who lost their lives on

Roma, son of Arnie and Rosemary
Roma, died while conducting rescue
operations in the North Tower with
the New York Fire Patrol. Arnie was
part of the recovery process at

“Time is passing. Yet, for the
United States of America, there
will be no forgetting September
the 11th. We will remember
every rescuer who died in honor.
We will remember every family
that lives in grief. We will
remember the fire and ash, the
last phone calls, the funerals
of the children.” - President

All School District
Students Eligible for
Free School Meals
Families will no longer need to complete paper
applications under new program requirements
All students in The School District
of Philadelphia can receive school
breakfast and lunch free of charge
starting this fall.
Paper applications will no longer
be needed for students to receive
school meals as the District’s Division
of Food Services transitions to the
U.S. Department of Agriculture’s
(USDA) Community Eligibility
Provision (CEP) for the 2014-15
school year. Anticipated benefits
include better access to school meals
by easing the strain on household
budgets, reducing the paperwork
burden on families and eliminating
the stigma associated with the free
lunch program.
“Our goal is to provide as many
students as possible with access to
healthy, nutritious meals,” said Dr.
William R. Hite, Superintendent.
“We want to keep students’ focus on
learning, not hunger.”
Removing the meal application and
the need for cash payments will
reduce internal administrative costs
and reallocate some existing Food
Services personnel. The increased
efficiencies will help the Food
Page 5
215-435-3909
Services division financially as it
works towards the goal of increasing
the number of full-service kitchens
in District schools.
The District has offered breakfast
at no cost to all schools for the past
four years. Since 1991, approximately 175 schools have participated in a
universal lunch program where all
students were able to receive free
lunch without completing paperwork.
Under the new program, an estimated
85 schools will join their ranks.
Approximately 80 percent of
Philadelphia public and charter
school students meet income guidelines for school meals. More than
143,000 students in Philadelphia
are served annually. During the 201314 school year, more than 27 million
meals were served, including dinner
as part of afterschool programs at
approximately 100 school meal sites.
The USDA Food and Nutrition
Service administers the National
School Lunch Program and School
Breakfast Program among other
initiatives to address hunger and
obesity.

CONSERVATORSHIP CHECKLIST
Representative John Taylor has prepared common sense checklists for his constituents on how to handle situations dealing with bad neighbors, as well as possible
Conservatorship properties and those parcels that have been neglected due to a deceased owner. These checklists demonstrate how Rep. Taylor’s office can assist the
community in resolving any issues that arise in reference to these problems. Last week the Juniata News published Taylor’s “Bad Neighbor/Tenant Checklist”. Below you
will find Rep. Taylor’s “Conservatorship Checklist”, and in next week’s editionwill be his “Deceased Owner/Vacant Property Checklist”. Rep. Taylor’s office is sharing this
information not only to show what their staff can do to help, but more importantly, to empower community members to help themselves.
CONSERVATORSHIP CHECKLIST (Act 135)
1). Identify vacant property (must be vacant for at least the past twelve
months):
a). Check owner contact information, as well as real estate tax
status, on the Office of Property Assessment website, www.phila.gov.
2). Take pictures of the existing condition of the subject property.
3). Contact L&I to report current violations (open windows and doors,
debris, unstable structure and foundation), as well as to determine prior
violations. The best manner to report is Philly 311, or by e-mail at
[email protected]. Make sure to include pictures as the City will be more
likely to act after viewing the blighted conditions. Please allow up to thirty
(30) days for inspection and notice of any action. The property must pose a
danger to the community and/or have violations of Section 300 of the
Philadelphia Property Maintenance Code.
4). Contact Representative John Taylor (215-744-2600), who will forward
a letter to owner outlining all complaints, as well as informing the owner of
the penalties for violation of the Code.
5). Check with local realtors, or at www.zillow.com, to make sure that
property has not been actively marketed for sale within past sixty (60) days.
6). Upon receipt of violations against the property, determine Conservator
(statute states it must be person or entity that has performed work on a
property within a mile of the real estate subject to the Conservatorship
action. The most likely Conservators are Community Development
Corporations, but can also be other groups whose goal is neighborhood
revitalization. Representative Taylor has also met with a non-profit
organization, Scioli Turco, who will act as a Conservator for certain properties.
However, this entity will perform the work to bring the parcel up to Code,
then turn it over to a developer. Contact Marc Collazzo (215-744-2600) for
further information or to serve as liaison to Scioli Turco.
a). It is important to note that our office will handle the preparation
and filing of the Conservatorship petition. However, the proposed Conservator
is responsible for all costs.

*Call
b). The Conservator must submit a renovation plan to the Court,
which is included in the Petition, should said Conservator must have access
to local contractors to provide estimates. Should we need to gain access to
the interior of the property prior to filing, contact Scott Mulderig at L&I at
scot[email protected].
7). Find buyer BEFORE filing: The purpose of this legislation is to take
blighted, abandoned properties and return them to productive use.
Accordingly, we want to get these properties into the hands of families who
want to live in the area, not someone who simply wants to rent the premises
or sell the rehabilitated property for a profit. This is best achieved by “word
of mouth” through local civic associations.
8). File Petition (electronically through the Philadelphia Courts website).
The property owner must be served with the Petition and any subsequent
hearing dates as the owner has the ability at any time to either agree to
appointment of a Conservator, make the proposed repairs under Court
supervision or take the property at the end of the process and reimburse the
proposed Conservator for any and all work performed on the property. The
process, after filing, is 120 days. Contact Marc (215-744-2600) for copy of
pleading and tutorial if necessary.

Teddy Bears Being Collected at Fortaleza Fitness
and Rehab in Port Richmond and Hunting Park
Fortazela Fitness and Rehab is
again joining seven other collection
sites to try to gather bears to donate
to a local nonprofit — the Philadelphia
Children’s Alliance (PCA). The drive
begins today on National Teddy Bear
Day, September 9 th and runs
throughout the month of September. PCA, which cares for children who
are victims of sexual abuse, gives a
teddy bear to every child who visits
their facility at 300 E. Hunting Park
Ave. While it doesn’t take away the
pain they are going through, it
provides a little comfort after these
kids bravely share the story of what
happened to them. As PCA prepares
to see close to 3,000 cases this year,
these teddy bear drives are crucial
to ensure that every child gets to
leave with a stuffed animal.
This is the second year that
Fortaleza Fitness and Rehabilitation
Centers is joining in this effort.

General Manager at Fortaleza. “Luckily for me I never knew the PCA
existed because I had never been a
victim and in need of such a
resource. However, it’s sad to know
how many victims there are in the
Philadelphia area. An astonishing
2,400 reports of child sexual abuse
are made, and after learning about
this, the only thing we can do as
human beings is make sure our
community knows.”
Rivera said that it’s important to
make it known that there is a
resource nearby staffed by some
pretty amazing people that will assist
families suffering from these horrific
crimes. “Everyone needs to know
PCA exists and we will do our best to
make sure our 2,700 members

as we travel from these humble beginnings
and into the 21th Century.

T - Transforming lives yet also being transformed by major historical events
J - Joachim, Patron Saint of families, saw economic booms and busts affect Church families
O - Opening missions in northeast Philadelphia that would later become parishes
A - Always faithful to God, to those assigned to administer the parish and to each other
C - Changes would test those of the parish - immigrants, disease, a fire, flight from the city

I - Industrial growth figured prominently in the growth of the church and the area
M - Many mileposts along the road of the 169-year history of St. Joachim

Taylor to Introduce Legislation to
Decriminalize Out-of-State Liquor Sales
Rep. John Taylor (R-Philadelphia)
will introduce legislation to
decriminalize the purchase of out-ofstate wine and liquor.
“For decades people have driven
into New Jersey and Delaware to
purchase wines and spirits not
available in Pennsylvania, which is
illegal, though rarely enforced. When it is enforced, the consequences can be great and often
unfair,” Taylor said.
Taylor cited the case of Arthur
Goldman, a lawyer who purchased
more than 2,400 bottles of premium
wines purchased out of state that
were unavailable through the
Pennsylvania system. Goldman was
charged with selling liquor from his
home, though he was making
purchases for friends and family who
had requested a specific wine and
reimbursed him.

“These valuable wines, which
represent a significant investment by
the purchaser, were confiscated by
the Bureau of Liquor Control
Enforcement and could be
destroyed,” Taylor said. “If he is
willing to pay the necessary state
taxes, he should have his wines
returned to him.”
To make sure this does not happen
again, Taylor will introduce legislation
to decriminalize this activity as long
as the person making the purchase
pays the Pennsylvania taxes owed on
the product. “My bill will specifically allow
residents of Pennsylvania to
purchase wine, spirits and beer
outside of the Commonwealth and
bring those purchases home with
them without fear of criminal
prosecution,” Taylor said.
Furthermore, Taylor’s legislation
would allow a Pennsylvania resident
to be reimbursed by a friend or family
member for alcohol purchased
outside of Pennsylvania. “It’s time to reform this system,”
Taylor said.
New Credit Cards Add Security Chip
If you’ve recently received a new
credit card, either because you
applied for an account or because
your current one expired, your card
might have an additional feature: the
security chip.
Dozens of companies around the
world have been using “smart chip”
credit cards for years, but the U.S.
has lagged behind (hence the millions
of stolen card numbers and
incidences of fraud). Now, one at a
time, American companies are
getting on board, spending the few
extra dollars to produce a card with
upgraded security. While the chip
won’t deter all fraud, it will make it
much more difficult for thieves to
vacuum up information as it goes
through the terminal.
At this point there are a two types
of EMV (which stands for Europay,
MasterCard and Visa) cards: chip plus
PIN, and chip plus signature. The card
requiring a PIN is rare in the U.S. By
2015, most card companies will issue
only the chip cards, and a signature
will be required during the
transaction as a security step.
Eventually the cards might require an
additional step, the PIN.
Getting your chip card doesn’t
necessarily mean you’ll be able to
use it right away. It will depend on
the terminals where you shop. The
special slot for the chip card is on
the bottom of the terminal at check
out. You’ll likely need to bend down
to see it, or raise the whole unit. Slide
the card in chip-end first, and leave
it there. If the terminal is chipenabled, the transaction will be
completed in approximately 10-15
seconds, and you’ll be instructed to
remove your card. If you slide the card
in and nothing happens, remove it and
swipe as usual.

To find out which companies offer
the chip card, check www.credit
cardinsider.com and put “chip cards”
in the search box. (Look on the far
right for the magnifying glass and
click that.)
If you want a chipped card, call your
credit-card company. There shouldn’t
be any charge for the new card.
If you’re about to travel in Europe,
request a chip card before you go.
Most chip-card terminals in Europe
won’t even take the swipe-type cards
anymore. Be sure to set up your PIN
before you go.Best bet: Ask your card
company for a chip card that requires
both signature and PIN for
transactions.

* On Sept. 10, 1813,
in the first unqualified defeat of a
British naval squadron in history,
U.S. naval commander Oliver
Hazard Perry leads a fleet of nine
American ships to victory over a
squadron of six British warships.
After the battle, Perry sent a
famous dispatch to U.S. Gen.
William Henry Harrison that read,
“We have met the enemy, and they
are ours.”
* On Sept. 14, 1959,
a Soviet rocket bearing a Russian
flag crashes into the moon’s
surface. Vice President Richard
Nixon expressed some sour grapes
by noting that it took the Soviets
four tries to hit the moon and
reassured Americans that “We are
way ahead” in the space race.
* On Sept. 9, 1966,
President Lyndon Johnson signs the
National Traffic and Motor Vehicle
Safety Act and the Highway Safety
Act into law. The two bills made
the
federal
government
responsible for setting and
enforcing safety standards for cars
and roads.
* On Sept. 12, 1972,
after nearly 40 years of riding
across millions of American TV and
movie screens, the cowboy actor
William Boyd, best known for his
role as Hopalong Cassidy, dies at
the age of 77. Boyd was to be the
first cowboy actor to make the
transition from movies to television.
* On Sept. 13, 1980,
country music artist Willie Nelson
and his band perform at the White
House with President Jimmy Carter
in attendance. Later that night,
unbeknownst to the president,
Nelson allegedly retired to the
White House roof to smoke a
marijuana cigarette.
* On Sept. 8, 1998,
St. Louis Cardinals slugger Mark
McGwire hits his 62nd home run
of the year, breaking Roger Maris’
record. McGwire was celebrated
as a hero, though allegations that
he used performance-enhancing
substances have since led some to
question the legitimacy of his
accomplishments.

Corner of “K” & Lycoming Streets
Who Deserves Hell?
Several years ago, I happened to
be listening to radio talk show host
Michael Medved. Mr. Medved was
asking callers if they agreed with Sir
Elton John’s statement that,
“organized religion doesn’t seem to
work. It turns people into hateful
lemmings [those who blindly follow
one another until they are all
destroyed] and it’s not really
compassionate.” Elton John’s
solution would be to “ban religion
completely.”
Before long, a man called in and
asked Mr. Medved if he believed that
God would send homosexuals like
Elton John to hell. Michael Medved
(a practicing Jew) referred to
Leviticus 18:22 where God said, “You
shall not lie with a male as one lies
with a female; it is an abomination.”
He then said that, although homosexuality is an abomination to God,
this does not mean that gays as
people are an abomination. Michael
Medved’s perspective was interesting, but he did not answer the man’s
question.
Let’s look at the Bible for an answer
to that caller’s question. First of all,
the New Testament, as well as the
Old Testament, teaches that
homosexuality is a sin. For example,
in Romans 1:26-31 and I Corinthians
6:9-10, God includes homosexual
behavior among the sins that
characterize those who are bound for
hell. Keep reading, this will all make
sense in a minute.
Homosexual acts are listed in both
of those passages, but it is important
to note that many other sins are
named in the same category as
homosexuality. Observe what some
of them are: greed, envy, murder,
strife, lying, gossiping, boasting,
disobeying parents, and being
unloving are in the same list as
homosexuality in Romans 1:29-31.
In I Corinthians 6:9-10, in addition
to homosexuality, we find (among
others) the sins of fornication,
adultery, stealing, drunkenness, and
dishonesty. The Bible, you notice,
doesn’t paint homosexuality as being
any worse than many other sins –
some of which we may not even think
of as sinful.
When we look at those lists of sins
(as well as at the Ten Commandments, like I pointed out last week)
we must conclude that we all deserve
God’s wrath: “For the wrath of God is
revealed from heaven against all
ungodliness” (Romans 1:18). We all
deserve God’s wrath because we fail
to give God the honor and the
adoration that He deserves (see
UP TO $1,100 CASH
Page 14
Romans 1:19-21).
Have you ever wondered why God
hates sin? It’s because God deserves,
and demands, that we worship Him
and Him alone: “That they may know
that You alone, whose name is the
LORD, are the Most High over all the
earth” (Psalm 83:18). The Lord has
made it very clear that He will not
share the spotlight with anyone or
anything else: “I am the LORD, that is
My name; I will not give My glory to
another….” (Isaiah 42:8).
Now let’s answer the caller’s
question. Gays do deserve hell—right
along with all the rest of us. We all
have a self-centered focus that robs
God of His glory, and only God can
change the inclinations of our heart.
All sin is a cancer that robs us of real
peace and any hope of eternal joy.
Thankfully, there is more to this
story than just sin and punishment.
Christ endured the punishment that
we deserve so we could be changed
on the inside and experience
complete forgiveness.
What a joy to know that our sins
can actually be completely gone!
After the Bible gives us those sample
lists of sins (mentioned above) it
boldly says, “Such were some of you;
but you were washed, but you were
sanctified, but you were justified in
the name of the Lord Jesus Christ
and in the Spirit of our God” (1
Corinthians 6:11). We can be made
into new people no matter what sins
have controlled our lives in the past.
What a thrill to know that Christ’s
death on the Cross is enough to pay
for any and all sin when we turn from
it and follow Him. “As a result of the
anguish of His soul [Christ’s death
on the Cross], He [God the Father]
will see it and be satisfied; by His
knowledge [i.e. knowing Jesus
personally] the Righteous One
[Christ], My Servant, will justify the
many, as He will bear their iniquities
[sins]” (Isaiah 53:11).

“Words and Pictures” (PG-13)
— In an leafy and enchanting New
England prep school, teacher Jack
Marcus (Clive Owen) acts as a bit of
a renegade academic, daring his
students to truly experience
literature. See, he’s a washed-up
author who’s become quite a drinker
and an even bigger windbag. Enter
the new art teacher, Dina (Juliette
Binoche), a tight-lipped fine-art
painter who left the big city. Jack and
Dina have lots of pseudo-intellectual
banter before falling in love.
The movie’s ongoing debate over
the superior artistic medium — words
or pictures — seems more than a little
forced. We’re watching a movie, so
clearly both are just as important,
right? For a movie about a witty
romance between smart people, it
sure takes the slow and obvious route.
“Brick Mansions” (PG-13) — A
brutal crime lord has acquired a
weapon of mass destruction, and it’s
up to two hardcore dudes to shut it
down with as many awesome stunts
as possible. Paul Walker, in his last
215-435-3909
Page 16
complete film, stars as a narcotics
detective in a near-future version of
Detroit. He’s paired with Lino (David
Belle), an acrobatic ex-con who’s
dedicated to getting gangs and drugs
out of his neighborhood.The action is
downright impressive: Belle is a
legend in the world of Parkour, the
sport of moving rapidly over
obstacles using only momentum.
Without wires or computer
assistance, this guy leaps across
rooftops and bounces around faster
than Daffy Duck. Though it’s no fault
of Walker’s, this movie doesn’t stack
up to its source, a 2004 French flick
called “District B-13.”
“The Hornet’s Nest” (R) — Real
footage from the front lines shows
the chaos of war in this documentary
made by directors David Salzburg and
Christian Turead, using video from
journalist Mike Boettcher. In a
mountainous region of Afghanistan,
along the Pakistani border, the 101st
Airborne descends into the Kunar
valley to fight Taliban forces running
the area. It was predicted to be a
day-long mission, but it turned into
nine days of fighting. This
documentary doesn’t go into causes
or impacts of the war, but focuses on
the astounding experiences of the
troops in the thick of it.
“Palo Alto” (R) — Dreamy and
disaffected teenagers in a nice
takes his three daughters to the same
resort in South Africa as Barrymore
and her two sons. Then it’s a safari
through dense patches of Sandlerhumor and sappy bogs of Sandlerschmultz.
There are some moments of dry
humor, or genuine wit — but each
time it’s a surprise in the regular
routine of poop jokes, bouncing
bodies and make-fun-of-the-weirdo
gags. There’s also the backdrop of
troublesome African stereotypes. If
you want an easy night of lowbrow
laughs with the family, look
elsewhere. “Blended” might give you
the boring and uncomfortable
evening you were trying to avoid.
Clive Owen, Juliette Binoche in “Words and Pictures”
California suburb emote all of the
angst, longing and confusion in this
film about wasted youth. April (Emma
Roberts) is a high-school girl who is
occasionally teased as the class
virgin, and frequently teased for
being the favorite of her super-cute
soccer coach, Mr. B (James Franco).
Teddy (Jack Kilmer) is interested in
April, but he keeps getting caught in
the bad decisions of his best friend,
Fred — a human vortex of disturbing
teen recklessness. First-time director
Gia Coppola (yes, related) adapted
the movie from a series of short
stories by Franco.
“Blended” (PG-13) — Adam
Sandler and Drew Barrymore play
single parents who can’t stand each
other after going on a disastrous blind
date. By sheer coincidence, Sandler

have asked for many favors. This
time, I ask you this very special one.
(mention favor). Take it dear Jesus,
and place it within your own broken

Then, in your merciful eyes, it will

Amen. Say this prayer for 3 days,
promise publication and your favor
will be granted. Never known to

Read Contracts Carefully Before Signing
By Jason Alderman
If you always stop to read the fine
print before signing anything,
congratulations – your parents
trained you well. If you don’t, beware:
Your signature could commit you to a
long-term gym membership you don’t
really want, an apartment you can’t
afford or worst of all, paying off
someone else’s loan you cosigned.
Broadly defined, contracts are
mutually binding agreements
between two or more parties to do –
or not do – something. It could be as
simple as buying coffee (you pay $3
and the restaurant agrees to serve
you a drinkable beverage), or as
complex as signing a 30-year
mortgage.
Once a contract is in force it
generally cannot be altered unless
all parties agree. And, with very few
exceptions (e.g., if deception or fraud
took place), contracts cannot easily
be broken.
Before you enter a contractual
agreement, try to anticipate
everything that might possibly go
wrong. For example:
• After you’ve leased an apartment
you decide you can’t afford the rent
or don’t like the neighborhood.
• Your roommate moves out,
leaving you responsible for the rest
of the lease.
• You finance a car you can’t
afford, but when you try to sell, it’s
worth less than your outstanding loan
balance.
• You buy a car and only later
notice that the sales agreement
includes an extended warranty or
other features you didn’t verbally
authorize.
• You sign a payday loan without
fully understanding the terms and
end up owing many times the original
loan amount.
• You buy something on sale and
don’t notice the store’s “No returns
on sale items” policy.
• You click “I agree” to a website’s
privacy policy and later realize you’ve
given permission to share your
personal information.
• You buy a two-year cellphone
plan, but after the grace period ends,
discover that you have spotty
reception and it will costs hundreds
of dollars to buy your way out.
Cosigning a loan can be
particularly risky. If the other person
stops making payments, you’re
responsible for the full amount,
including late fees or collection
costs. Not only will your credit rating
suffer, but the creditor can use the
same collection methods against you
as against the primary borrower,
including suing you or garnishing your
wages.
Still, there may be times you want
to cosign a loan to help out a relative
or friend. The Federal Trade
Commission’s handy guide, “Cosigning a Loan,” shows precautions
to take before entering such
agreements (www.consumer.ftc.gov).
A few additional reminders:
• Ensure that everything you were
promised verbally appears in writing.
• Make sure all blank spaces are
filled in or crossed out before signing
any documents –including the tip line
on restaurant and hotel bills.
• Don’t be afraid to ask to take a
contract home for more careful
analysis or to get a second opinion. A
lawyer or financial advisor can help.
• Don’t be pressured into signing
anything. If salespeople try that
tactic, walk away. (Be particularly
wary at timeshare rental meetings.)
• Keep copies of every document
you sign. This will be especially
important for contested rental
deposits, damaged merchandise,
insurance claims, extended
warranties, etc.
• Take along a “wingman” if you’re
making an important decision like
renting an apartment or buying a car
to help ask questions and protect your
interests.
• Be wary of “free trial” offers.
Read all terms and conditions and
pay particular attention to pre-
checked boxes in online offers.
Bottom line: Contracts protect
both parties. Just make sure you fully
understand all details before signing
on the dotted line.
