It would do so by imposing an annual $50 assessment on every registered investment adviser; the assessment could rise if the payout from the fund increases.Here was one of the arguments that Mr. Doyle, who represents IDS Financial Services, used against the bill before the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee last week:"In a year like this, when the legislature doesn't know how to handle, or what to do with the taxes it does have, or how to raise new ones, this is the worst time to be considering an experiment like this."

A reader from Baltimore said that two rowhouses next to his home were foreclosed on a few months ago and he can't find out who is maintaining the properties, which have collected debris, grass and other materials outside the home. He wants information on the best way to track down the owners to discuss maintenance. Dear reader: The record owner of foreclosed property is responsible for complying with building code requirements until the court ratifies the foreclosure sale.

Simpson double-murder trial set to begin this week.Dave Nagle, an ESPN spokesman, said the networks will continue to cover the trial on "SportsCenter" and "SportsNight," their respective sports news programs, but will not televise coverage unless "there's a compelling reason, say if O. J. himself takes the stand.""It's going to be available in plenty of other locations. We didn't feel we needed to add to that," said Nagle.
