etc? Defining trespassing and what the Town can enforce again
becomes a task in itself.

  Deciding Which Legal Form of Business is Best for You
    To do this, an analysis of the various legal and tax-related implications associated with
the forms of business structure must be conducted. In Arizona, as in all states, several busi-
ness structures exist. The four most common are the sole proprietorship, general and limit-
ed partnerships, limited liability partnership, and corporation. The state also recog-
nizes a limited liability partnership among others.
Limited Liability Partnership                                                                    Chairman’s Express
    Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) permits investors to become partners without assuming
unlimited liability. There must be at least one general partner, who retains unlimited liabil-
                                                                                                       Club
ity. A general partner may be a corporation. If it is a corporation, there are certain feder-
al tax law requirements to be considered, but a corporate general partner limits liability.
                                                                                                     Platinum
Limited partners usually risk only their investment in the business.
  Limited partners may not participate in active management of the business, or they run
the risk of forfeiting their limited partner status and thus their limited liability.
  LLP is a recent form of business entity in Arizona. For additional information regarding
      ,
an LLP contact an attorney or Maricopa County Bar Association at (602) 257-4200.
Advantages:                             Disadvantages:
  • Limited liability for investors        • Unlimited liability for general partner
  • Relative ease in raising capital       • Lack of clear legal precedent
  • For the principal, it provides         • Limited partners have less input in manage-
    freedom of decision-making               ment than shareholders in a corporation
    since limited partners have little
    or no say in operational decisions.
  • Limited Partnership is not taxed
    separately from limited or general partners                                                          Silver

                       Lifting
  • Before you lift, look around the area. Decide
    where you will put the load and check the                                                           Copper

    width apart, one foot slightly ahead of the
    other. A firm stance helps your balance dur-
    ing lifting. Arch your back inward and maintain
    the inward lower curve of your back with muscle power. Tuck in your chin
    in and stick out your chest to arch your back; then squat down to the load.
  • Grasp the load securely. Test the load before lifting to get a feel for its
    weight. Keeping your chin tucked, lift smoothly with your legs. Don’t lift with
    a quick pull!
  • Keep the load close and remember to maintain the inward curve of your
    lower back.                                                                                      Rendering by Barry Eline

 UPCOMING EVENTS       Gilbert NOW!
                                  “Insights from an
                                  Out of Sight Guy”
                        Blind since the early 1970’s, Larry Colbert will share
                      his experiences with losing the natural sense of vision,
                      and the resulting knowledge that comes from having to
                      sharpen your intuitive vision. With powerful and
                      humorous examples, he talks of the importance of self-
                      knowledge, setting goals and coping with continual
                      change in the marketplace and in the workplace. Larry
                      will also speak about the importance of keeping a “clear
                      eye” on your potential, of seeing the speed at which sit-
                      uations and circumstances are changing today, and how
                      information and attitude contribute to success.
