Ith all the fuss over the Bloomfield Hdls school bond vote and school board electIOn, an Important event was passed over SIr Graves Ghastly has died Adnuttedly, I thought he had died years ago, but I have smce learned that he passed on recently at age 94 OffiCIally he was Lawson Demmg, but to all of us Saturday afternoon fans from the late 1960s to early 1980s he WIll always be SIr Graves - or as m~ then-young nephew used to say, Sir Grapes SIr Graves delJghted hIS fans WIth some of the cormest TV ever seen on TV Interspersel:! WIth ancient horror films, hke The Mummy and The WolfMan, Sir Graves wolJid entertllIn us WIth songs and Jokes WIth the aId of an Greg assortment of helpers hke Cool GholJi, TillIe Trollhouse, The Glob and Barnba. Kowalski -All of them looked suspICIously i1ke SIr Graves The Jokes were awful The songs dreadful And the set - a cardboard coffin m a httle graveyard - was about as cheesy as you could get No matter SIr Graves was fun He was a gentle vampIre He had good manners and never spoke 111 of anyone He was campy m hIS own way, but he never attempted to be hip or sly He even preferred to show the clasSICold horror mOVIes,where nary a drop of blood was shown and there was no such thmg a senal kIller They had class So dId he And look what we've got now Sir Graves used to be on Saturday afternoons m a TV land that eXisted long before cable Now we have dozens of channels that essentially show nothmg These Saturday afternoons, I mJght fhp over to Fox news, or MSNBC or CNN, as I am a news JunkIe But for the most part the shows featore people yelilng at each other or otherwise engaging m verbal mudfests There doesn t seem to be any room anymore for honest debate oflegltlmate dIsagreement Now, many shows are JUst


What a waste of tlme At least WIth SIr Graves you got entert",ned No one could Croon a tune hke TIllIe Trollhouse who warbled hke a mghtmgale, or perhaps a SICkmoose Some horror film aficIOnados prefer the much hIpper GholJi as theIr favonte horror mOVIehost We must also give due respect to the WItty Count Scary And does anybody still remember Morgus? They have made theIr own mark on the local TV scene and are - or were - great m their own way But none of them can generate the affectIOn that SIr Graves There hardly ISany local TV anymore Celebntles ilke George Plerrot, Bul Kennedy and a host of others are long gone and replaced by well, by nobody As a rule, I try to aVOIdnostalgia It colors realIstic VIews of hIstory as we tend to remember the great thmgs about the good 01 days, ilke plaYIng baseball m the street when you were a kId, whl1e forgettmg the reason you were out there - school had closed because of a poilo outbreak. I WIll,however, look back on SIr Graves WIth fondness and nostalgia Good mght sweet vampIre

Cost basis important for calculating your taxes Dear Rick: Can you tell me what cost basIs means? Cost basIs IS what you pald for en Investment For example, If you purchased 100 shares of stock at $10 a share, your cost basIS would be $1,000 Cost baSIS IS an Important number, partICularly when It comes to taxes If your cost basiS m an mvestment was $1,000 and you sold that mvestment for $1,500, you would have a $500 gam to report on your

tax return Cost basiS IS a httle dIfferent for mutual funds In thiS case, It s what you paid for the fund plus all the dlVldends and capItal gam distributIOns you remvested For example, If you paid $1,000 for a mutual fund and over the years you had $100 of dIVIdends remvested and $ 200 of capital gam distributIOns reInvested, your cost basIS would be $1,300 If you sold that mvestment for $1,100

you would be able to take a $200 loss on your tax return If you mherlted an Investment, then your cost Money basiS IS the fau market value Matters of the Investment on Rick the date of Bloom death of the decedent On the other hand, If you have an mvestment that was gIfted to

you can contact the company and they can assist m determInmg your baSIS On the other hand, for mdlVlduai stocks It IS often dIfficult or nearly Impossible When you conSider some of the corporate mergers that have occurred over the last number of years, determmmg baSIS IS sometimes difficult In those cases, I generally recommend contactmg the mvestor serVIce department at the mdlVlduai company for assIstance In cases where you can not get assIstance the only alternative IS to take a fair guesstimate and to document how the calculatIOn was done

you, your cost baSIS IS a transfer baSIS In other words, you now have the same cost baSISas the person who gIfted you the mvestment SometImes It IS very difficult, partICularly If you have owned an mvestrnent for a long period of time, to know what the basiS IS For mutual fund mvestors, It IS eaSIer because

skIlls can look to busmess and mdustry for employment Some 'more esoterIc' fields hke phIlosophy are less related to the busmess world 'It's not an easy group to put one label on Some WIll go on to graduate school, he sald, "those type. of areas that typIcally reqUIre a master's degree,' hke sOCIal work Some go to law school or even medIcme I thmk there IS SOme apprehensIOn' Graduates aren t gettmgJobs as qUIckly, or as hIgh a level as m the past 'Some of them get underemployed" m posts not related to theIr major A career-related mternshlp or co-op work whIle m school IS a boon 'They re less apprehenSIve because they've already been out there," Thomas said, addmg students can even get hIred by the mternshlp employer Thomas sees more attentIOn to career areas, such as In bUSIness, engIneermg educatIOn, those that are most dIrectly related to career areas Even ilberal arts faculty and admmIstrators know students are
