File to receive stimulus check

Residents still have time to file the necessary tax return documents to claim President Bush's economic stimulus check, aimed at revving up a stagnant economy through increased spending.

Residents need to file a return before Oct. 15 to claim the benefit. Those that qualify for the payment, upwards of $300, can expect a letter in the mail from the Internal Revenue Service reminding them to file a return.

Fountain Hills earns grant

Fountain Hills was awarded $19,000 by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality to fund a recycling program.

The grant is for a household hazardous waste collection event. The money will be used to hire a contractor to conduct the event.

The town, which has grown to about 25,000 residents, has never held a household hazardous waste event.

The grant is part of $370,386 awarded by ADEQ to fund recycling programs in Maricopa County, including Mesa and Tempe. Nearly half the money will be spent to provide recycling in rural and unincorporated areas of the county.
