Herald staff

LYNNWOOD — KSER’s "Getting Your Dough to Rise," with host Chuck Noel, airs today from 4:30 to 5 p.m.

Court Carter, president of the local chapter of the Washington Society of CPAs, will discuss recent tax changes and year-end tax tips. Mike Pattison of the Snohomish-Island Counties Association of Realtors will talk about residential real estate and mortgages. They will take calls at 425-742-4541.

  • T-bills drop: Interest rates on short-term Treasury bills fell Monday. Three-month bills sold at a discount rate of 6.160 percent, down from 6.175 percent last week. The six-month rate of 6.045 percent was down from 6.050 percent last week. The new rates understate the actual return to investors — 6.344 percent for three-month and 6.322 percent for six-month bills. In a separate report, the Federal Reserve said the average yield for one-year Treasury bills, the most popular index for making changes in adjustable rate mortgages, was unchanged at 6.09 percent.

  • New GE leader named: General Electric Co. anointed 44-year-old company man Jeffrey Immelt on Monday as successor to one of the business world’s most fabled CEO’s, Jack Welch, who will step down at the end of 2001.

  • Escape sales halted: Ford Motor Co. told its dealers for the fifth time in about a year to stop selling its new Escape sport utility vehicles while they’re checked for safety-related problems, this time for windshield wiper link ball sockets.
