Orman Wilson
Orman WilsonFive years ago, car-wash owner Orman Wilson set up a pension plan for himself and six employees. For that, he may owe the IRS a $1.2 million tax penalty.Mr. Wilson, the owner of 19 coin-operated car washes in Houston, says he relied on four advisers, including a certified public accountant, to set up a plan that received approval from the Internal Revenue Service. Then, in late 2007, the IRS found fault with the plan and assessed it $250,000 -- plus special penalties of $1.2 million.The penalties "would wipe us out," Mr. Wilson says.

Meredith Blackwelder
Meredith BlackwelderMeredith Blackwelder, 24, had her first ACL tear as a soccer player when she was in 8th grade. "I was in a small scrimmage for the ball," Blackwelder said. "I did a step-over move … it was like my tibia (shin) and ankle stayed planted on the ground but my femur (thigh) and knee caved in."Blackwelder had torn her ACL. The anterior cruciate ligament is one of four major ligaments in the knee and is the main stabilizer of the knee. Females are more likely to suffer tears than males."It was a terrible thing I heard about all the time but kept thinking, 'Oh it will never happen to me,' " said Blackwelder, now 24. "Then you realize it happens to tons and tons of people."
