"Another Chance To Vote" School Levy Dear Editor: We are sothankful we have another chance to vote for the school levy. We are not so confused as we were in the February school levy election. We have learned more about the benefits the school levy offers to our young people's future education, and you can bet your boots we Summers County citizens have our young people best interest first in our hearts. They are the future of our country and we would like to be a part in giving them a chance to have a first class education. For give us boys and girls if some of us got scared that our taxes would be inc-r eased if the levy passed. We just forgot to consider the fact that the school levy tax is a continuation of the school levy that is about to Phase out. No matter if some of us have a chip on our houlder at someone else's in he system, we have your best interest at heart ana we are sorry we lashed out at the school levy. We plan to go to the polls and vote for the school levey April the 12th. Beqause we krtow unless the economy picks up, a lot of parents will be caught between a hard place and a rook if the levy fails to pass, and we will face the fact that we willhave to pay for all our children's text books and school Engagement Announced Mr. and Mrs. Hobert Crook of Hinton our proud to announce the engagement of their daugh- ter, Edith Crook to Kenneth E.

Wi- thout the levy we feel sure some of our school building would probably be abandoned be.-.. cause we could not meet the fire marshall's requirements. Each school age, more stip- ulations have to be met. I remember when school run without a levy. I don't know if we could stand the burden of all our kids school books and supp- lies.

After all the school board and teacher's motives in working for the School levy is simply to provide our children in our community with the best possible education and we all know that is not possible without the excess levy.

Social Security SSA's Monthly "Payroll" Is $12.1 Million .Figures recently released show that as of June 30, 1980 the Social Security Administration's Beckley District ( served by the Beckley and Oak Hill SSA offices) is responsible for dis- trituting 49,588 checks totalling $12,121,282 per month to approximately 40,000 beneficiaries residing in Raleigh and Summers Counties, the plateau area of Fayette County,a nd the Whitesville area of Boone County, Carl Stewart, SSA mana- ger in Beckley, announced today. .These figures represent $8,788,832 in monthly social security retirement, survivor and disability benefits to 32,363 bene- ficiaries, $500,550 in 'monthly supplemental security income payments to 3,329 needy aged, blind and disabled persons, and $2,831,900 in monthly black lung benefits to 13,896 miners and - or widows and their dependents. . .Since many of those persons receiving supplemental securitY income payments or black lung benefits are also receiving social security benefits, Stewart explained, it is not accurate to conclude that there are actually 49,588 separate beneficiaries in the District. Instead, he conservatively estimated the number to be 40,000. .Nationally, after 44 years of operation ( from January 1, 1937 through June 30, 1980), Social Security has grown into the nation's primary income maintenance program. As of June 1980, there were 35.2 million retirement, survivor and disability insur- ance beneficiaries receiving nearly $10.5 billion in monthly checks...In January 1974 SSA began administering the Su- pplemental Security Income program, making monthly pay- ments to people with little or no income and limited resour- ces who are 65 or older, blind or disabled. As of June 1980, there were nearly 4.2 million persons, nationally, receiving $ 610.2 million a month in SSI payments, which come out of general revenues. .From December 30, 1969 through December 31, 1973, the local Social Security Offices were responsible for taking black lung claims from miners and their survivors. As of June 1980, these beneficiaries numbered 410,294, nationally, and they were receiving $84.7 million in monthly checks. The local SSA offices are still involved in this program, taking claims for pay- ment under the jurisdiction of the Department of Labor. ..Statewide, Stewart advised, the Beckley District is res- ponsible for paying 9.98 percent of the total Social Secur- ity, SSI and black lung monthly benefits, combined, and 18.63 percent of the State's black lung benefits. Nationally, the District is responsible for paying .08 percent of the total monthly benelfts, combined, and 3.34 percent of the Nation's black lung bene-. fits. ..With an annual " payroll" or source of income exceed- ing $145.4 million ( SSA $105,465,980, SS! $6,006,600, and black lung $33,982,800), the Beckley District is second only to the coal industry in its economic impact upon this area.

( NYSE symbol FDO), has ann- ounced the opening in Bruns- wick, Georgia, of the 500th variety discount store in the rapidly expanding chain. In remarks delivered at the Grand Opening ceremonies in Brunswick, Leon Levine, Chairman and founder of the Company, stated that: " The opening of the 500th Family Dollar store today is a mom- entous and exciting occasion for our Company. When the first family Dollar store op- ened in Charlotte, North Car- olina, 23 years ago we had ambitious plans, but even I did not foresee, this day. Starting with that one store we have expanded from our base in North Carolina outward in all directions throughout the Southeast. Our plan has been to follow what we call the ink - blotter approach -- opening st- ores in cities and towns in close proximity to existing stores. This permits us to gradually expand the perimeter of our market coverage. With this app- roach we are clustering stores in an ever expanding but com- pact geographic area and rea- lizing efficiencies in advertis- ing, merchandise replenish- ment, and supervisory controls. The opening of our 500th store attests to the success of our retailing concept and the st- rength of the people of Family Dollar who make that concept work. A major reason we are in a position to open this store is that during our 23 - year his- tory we have applied and re- fined our original retailing con- cept -- that is to operate un- der long - term leases, rel- atively small self - service stores -- typically having 6,000 to 8,000 square feet -- with no frills and low overhead, and to sell, on cash and carry basis at reasonably modest prices, good quality, low - cost basic mer- chandise for family and home needs. We have never lost sight of this concept, and today more than ever Family Dollar meets the needs of value - conscious consumers" In commenting at the Grand Opening cermeonies on Family Dollar's store expansion plans, Lewis E. Levinel Presiden tof the Company, stated that: "aS we open our 500th store and i I look to the future, our plans are more ambitious than they have been at any time in Family Dollar's history. The Brunsw- ick store represents the 45th new store opening since the beginning of our fiscal year on September I, 1981. By the end of the fiscal year on August 31, 1982, we plan to begin operat- ions in approximately 20 add- itional stores. This is the type of growth that has produced 26 consecutive quarters of record sales and earnings on a com- 'parable basis. The Company's record of growth -- in good economic times and bad -- gives us confidence that Family Do- llar can continue to expand rapidly and profitably in the years ahead throughout the Southeast and beyond." The 500 Family Dollar stores now operating are located in the ten Southeastern states of North Carolina, South Carol- ina. Georgia, Virginia, Alab- ama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Fl- orida, West Virginia and Miss- issippi.
