ON Independence Day, suggestions for financial independence: "When buying Treasuries, divide your investments by maturity dates. This way you'll always have funds maturing so if you need the money you'll get full face value, or close to it." (Dick Davis Income Digest, June)"Fed up with your bank's numerous fees and low rates on deposits? If so, America's brokerage firms are eager to sign you up for an asset-management account. You may do better banking with your broker." (Money, July)If you're looking for utilities, BGE and Potomac Electric Power stand in the highest quality categories in Argus' latest "Electric Utility Rankings."

Bravo named tonight's episode “Scream Therapy,” but there isn't much screaming and there is only a tiny bit of therapy. But there is 'unloading,' some non-sequiturs disguised as logical conclusions, and despite all of that, two of the Housewives earn my respect! And one of them is not the 'Wife you think. Tonight we have shock and some situations that will make you want to do a double take, so for the sake of accuracy, I am going to rename this episode “Back the Truck Up. " First up, while discussing her rift with Briana, Vicki says, “I never thought I was the perfect person, but I thought I was the perfect mom.” Wow. Maybe I shouldn't believe every woman's magazine article I read, or every Lifetime movie I see, but I think calling yourself a “perfect mom” is a no-no.

Digex Inc. said yesterday that it is laying off 200 employees, about 20 percent of its work force, in an effort to become less dependent on its biggest shareholder, bankrupt telephone giant WorldCom Inc. The Beltsville company, which hosts Web sites and other business applications, such as e-mail, said the job cuts are part of a plan to become financially independent. Digex borrowed $9 million from WorldCom during the second quarter. Digex spokeswoman Secret Wherrett said the amount of cash Digex has to borrow from WorldCom "is decreasing quarter over quarter, but the goal is to not need to borrow and to be self-sustaining."

LAST MONTH I got a call at home from a man I did not know. He told me he had an initial public offering that was going to be just as successful as the recent IPO of the restaurant chain Planet Hollywood, which did well and got a lot of press.He said he knew I was a ''discerning investor,'' and he wanted me to know about this opportunity so I could enrich myself, with his assistance. What a nice guy.I asked him, what made him think I was a discerning investor? There was no answer. I asked where he got my name, but I must have overstepped my ''discerning investor'' question limit, because he hung up.A few days later, I'm at a party.

Many parents who beamed with pride at their child's graduation this spring now are facing a new problem.After decades raising your child, you probably dreamed of the day when that young adult joined the working world and you had more money to spend on yourself.Not so fast. With today's tough job market and companies lopping off workers like a hairdresser snipping split ends, you might find the freshly minted graduate isn't exactly packing up a suitcase to leave the nest.Now you may well have to do something tougher than pay tuition bills -- you have to help your child go off on his or her own.It's common to help children when they start working.

Dawn Nee recalls how her father insisted that she start doing her own taxes at age 14, and her tears of frustration as she tried to figure out the capital gains tax on her custodial account. That was one of many financial lessons she had growing up. Nee, now 26, and her husband recently bought a three-story Cape Cod home in Massachusetts and are building savings. She sees peers at work who still live with their parents or are steeped in credit-card debt. That makes the Maryland native appreciate what her parents taught her. "My husband is more grateful.

"DO YOU THINK the bear market is over, just getting started, or aren't you sure?" asks Richard Lehmann, president, Income Securities Adviser Inc., in Forbes, May 14. "No matter how you answer this question, you should consider adding some convertible securities to your portfolio."`Converts,' as they are called, are made for markets like this. The advantage of convertibles is that they pay a substantial fixed rate of return while participating in some of the upside potential of the underlying stock.
