Jobless claims unexpectedly plunge

WASHINGTON - New applications for jobless benefits plunged to the lowest level in 14 weeks, a possible sign that the massive wave of layoffs has peaked. Still, the number of unemployed workers getting benefits climbed to a new record.

The Labor Department reported Thursday that the number newly laid off workers applying for benefits dropped to 601,000 last week. That was far better than the rise to 635,000 claims that economists expected.

Perdue signs tax assessment freeze

ATLANTA - Property assessments in Georgia cannot rise until 2011 under a bill signed into law on Wednesday by Gov. Sonny Perdue.

Supporters say the new law will prevent local governments from hiking assessments during an economic downturn that has driven many property values down. But critics say it could lead counties and cities to boost millage rates instead, meaning tax bills will rise either way.

The true costs of major appliances

The true price of a major appliance is what it costs to take out of the store, plus what it costs to run it once you get it home. Since appliances can account for a hefty portion of your monthly power bill, the lower price of an appliance on sale might not be much of a bargain if you end up paying higher electric bills for the next 10 years.

Change is constant in Congress

We think of Congress as immutable, a steadfast presence in American life since its first session in 1789. The inspiration we draw from the dome of the Capitol, the pull of a congressional hearing we know will change the course of history, the lofty statements on the floor of the House or Senate - these were as much a part of our grandparents' time as they are of ours.
