THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1996 Money THE SALINA JOURNAL Y ECONOMY T SAN FRANCISCO Home sales maintain healthy pace cit y mulls insurance for sex-change operations Sales of previously owned homes stay above 4 million mark By The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Existing home sales slowed slightly in August but continued at more than an annualized 4 million pace for the sixth consecutive month despite relatively high mortgage rates. "The housing sector is still healthy," maintained economist David Lereah of the Mortgage Bankers Association. "The housing sector is not being inhibited by mortgage rates." Sales of previously owned homes slipped 0.5 percent, to 4.13 million at a seasonally adjusted annual rate, the National Association of Realtors reported Wednesday. Many analysts had expected a 1 percent drop. Sales have remained above the 4 million mark since March and set a new record, 4.28 million, in May. Sales for all of 1995 totaled just 3.8 million. Since May, sales have softened, declining 2.8 percent in June and 0.2 percent in July. But the 4.15 million rate in July was stronger than the 4.14 million initial estimate. "The nation's housing market has seen unprecedented movement this year and it's only natural that the market will correct itself," said John Tuccillo, a Realtors economist. Lereah attributed the strength to an economy that continues to produce jobs and increase incomes. "Consumers still have the wherewithal to go out and buy homes ... and builders continue to build homes," he said. Indeed, new home sales shot up 7.9 percent in August to the highest level in five months and construction of single-family homes jumped 8.3 percent to a 2%-year high. Many analysts had predicted a sharp fall off in the housing industry as 30-year, fixed-rate mortgages soared, averaging 8.32 percent in June compared to 7.03 percent last January. The monthly payment on a $100,000 mortgage with a 7 percent interest rate is $665, while the payment on the same loan with a 8.5 percent rate is $769 — a difference of $104. Rates have fallen slightly since June and averaged 8 percent in August, according to the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. Many analyst expect rates to level off near the current level, well below the double-digit figures of most of the 1980s. The median price of an existing home was $122,300, up from $121,500 in July and $117,600 a year earlier. The median is the midpoint, meaning half of the homes cost more and half cost less. Sales in the Midwest, where the median price was $104,900, rose 0.9 percent, to 1.07 million.

The idea came from what's known as the "transgender community" in San Francisco, where the Board of Supervisors in recent years has considered such things as legalizing marijuana for the terminally ill and prostitution. Supervisor Tom Ammiano, a gay man, said he will introduce the measure at the request of those who consider gender transformation a medical necessity. "People don't choose to be trans- sexual. They're born that way," said police Sgt. Stephan Thorne, who is undergoing the change from female to male at his own expense. "I haven't 'opted' to do anything. I am taking the medical treatment that is required for my medical condition." No one knows how many of the 28,000 municipal employees might want the procedure. The surgery costs $10,000 to $20,000, not counting psychiatric evaluations and hormone treatments before and after. "This is not a problem for Boise, Idaho," complained Arthur Bruzzone, chairman of the city Republican Party. He called sex reassignment, like breast enhancement, a "lifestyle decision" and said that "special interests" are ignoring more urgent problems like homelessness. San Francisco is believed to have about 6,000 transsexuals. Salina's jobless rate shrinks to 3.3 percent Fewer than 840 people were actively looking for a job in Salina last month, and most of them were expected to land a new job in the near future, a Kansas Department of Human Resources official in Salina said. Salina's unemployment rate fell to 3.3 percent in August, down from 3.4 percent in July, and down from 3.8 percent in August 1995. Ken Dreiling, a research analyst for the department, said a 3.3 percent jobless rate is considered to be close to full employment. "The majority of these people who are looking for a job are in transition between jobs," he said. "They may have been fired or they quit, but they will probably not be out of work for a long time." Dreiling said that low inflation, low interest rates and a strong de- mand for labor will keep Salina'Sj, economy growing. That should *' further cut the jobless rate in the coming months, he said. Corporations fined millions for oil spill WASHINGTON — Three corporations were fined $25 million each in Puerto Rico on Wednesday for spilling 750,000 gallons of oil, causing long-term damage to the region's marine ecosystem, the Justice Department said. The corporations — Bunker Group Puerto Rico, Bunker Group Inc. and new England Marine Services — are part of a group of 50 corporate entities controlled by the Frank family of New York They were convicted by a jury last April of sending out an un- seaworthy vessel and negligently discharging oil.
