Letter To The Editor Sept. 8, 1983 Dear Summers County Citizen, I think the theme of this letter will be " reflections of a Ch- amber President". I took the office of President in Feb. of this year and at the time I accepted, I presented the board members a letter saying I would accept if I had their involvement in whatever way needed. I find myself now in needing not only their involve- ment but all of Summers Co- unty too. This job is much too big for such a few people. I am finding people willing to serve on committees and willing to give their ideas but when a chairman is needed to take charge and see that committee from start to finish - this help is not available! Now is the time to get busy and I am more than willing to do my share, but I say again it is going to take total committment from Summers County people. The 1980 cen- sus stated there are 15.875 people in our county and I know the leadership is available to take care of any project we would have. We are going to need involvement from all the clubs and from old and young. I hear the older citizens say I have done my share and I'm tired - let the younger ones carry the load now. The young- er ones say they have small children and do not have the finances because of their family. I say each group has something to offer and if ev- eryone pulls together we would have a much better county for all to live m. I attended the WV Chamber of Commerce Convention m White Sulphur last week and became aware of areas the State Chamber is working in. They, of course, are working in a much bigger way than we are. but broken down it is not all that different. One of the sad realities for me was big bus- iness has top priority. I think this could be changed if the small business people would organize themselves and join the state chamber : then they would have an input as to what would serve their needs best, I should explain about the membership letter everyone received. The letter was not meant to bring dues from those who had already paid as it clearly stated a thank you to those who are current memb- ers. My system of getting the newsletter out consists of pre typed mailing lists which I run on a copier. It would have taken considerable time to have re- moved the current members names from the list before running the labels. Please accept my apology for the con- fusion and the next time it happens bear with me. Mr. Oral Mann. Greenville. WV. is interested in starting a Ruritan Club here in Hinton. He has a meeting scheduled Sept. 13, '83. 7:30 p.m in City Hall. Any person (men) interested or if you know someone who may be interested pass the word to them and try to attend. I see this club as a valuable asset to our community. Mr. and Mrs. Mann attended one of our board meetings and after the meeting Mrs. Mann said '" you need a Ruritan Club to help with some of the projects dis- cussed". Let's see if she is correct ! The caboose was a huge su- ccess in attendance. People just wanted to see what it looked like inside. We did have a problem staffing it with vol- unteers and I would like to thank those who did - some- times more than once or twice; Odessa Bowman, Sims Wicker. J. C. Alderson, Margaret Boe- ttcher, Nell Miller, Margaret Peaco, Elsie Hayslette, Doro- rthy Bowies, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Rushford, Nathan Tickle, Mrs. A.C. Petrey, and Scott Briers, We were con- cerned about Labor Day think- ing we needed someone there and Miss Helen Turman and Irene Lilly came through for us. They spent the entire day there and Miss Turman even paid a taxi to bring her from Sandstone. If we had more peo- ple with this type of dedication, there would be no holding Sum- mers County back: Also, I would like to give a big thanks to our Green Thumb workers in the Chamber office. Mrs. Mar- garet Peaco and Mrs. Edith Huffman. They took the res- ponsibility of transporting workers who had no other means of getting there and I really appreciated it. We have hopes of getting the outside painting started next week. Mr. Sims Wicker has agreed to help us be sure we are getting the authenic look. "-/our Chamber will be co - sponsoring a seminar titled " Starting & Managing A Small Business" with the CEA and Small Business Administrat. ion. This seminar will be held Sept. 22, '83 in the Memorial Building from 8:30 - 4:30. There is no cost to those who want to attend. My understanding is the agenda will cover six different facets of the business world and would be very helpful to some- one going into a new business or having just started one in the last year or so. I think they are hopeful of having at least 25 people in attendance and I might add different local people will be in charge of relating the topics on the- agenda. One new committee recently formed has concerned citizens interest. Those citizens are Mr. Sam Mclean. Mr. Bob Rich- mond, Mr. Tom Coffman, Mr. Jim Jackson. Mr. Jim Hutch- inson. Mr. Billy Ray Honaker, Mr. Steve Trail, Mr. Billy Joe Edwards. Mr. Jim Leslie. and Mr. Scott Briers. Mr. Jack Holt has been very interested in helping us with this committee. Their objective is to come up with a bluepla'nt concerning future development of Sum- mers County and I think we are in very capable hands. This committees findings will work right along with the retirement committee and the I - 64 ex- change committee. The statement I hear most often when I ask the question " What do you see happening for or in our county?" the answer is "' People are not willing to work together in our county -- it has always been that way and it is not going to change!" I have come to dislike that statement immensely and I believe the majority of people are willing to work for the betterment of all. Prove it by giving The Chamber a call and say " How Can I Help"? We need every- one's involvement. Sincerely, Emily K Briers Letter To The Editor September 9, 1983 Dear Editor: Recently my husband, Bruce, and I had the great pleasure to return home to West Virginia after living out of state for several years when he accepted an appointment of a United Methodist minister in Talcott: When we moved, however, I was nine month plus pregnant. After careful examination, my doctor where I previously liv- ed ascertained that I could make the trip successfully if care was taken. We arrived here on July 25rd. On MOnday mormng July 25th, I went to see Dr. Bahman Payman at the Summers Community Clinic as I was overdue and was feeling severe discomfort. He imm- ediately discovered that my condition could jeopardize my. life and my unborn child's. I was immediately hospitalized, surgery was performed that evening and I gave birth to a "beautiful. bouncing, baby boy Ill My husband and I firmly believe had it not been for the expedient expertise of Dr. Bah- man Payman and the medical staff of Summers County Hos- pital, my son Matthew and I would have lost our lives. Our first praise goes to the Great Physician for His tender mercy and secondly to the above ment- ioned. They went above and beyond the call of duty. They showed love ( yes, love) and concern not only for me but for my entire family. I realize that Summers Co- unty Hospital is no UVA Med- ical Center or Duke Univer- sity, but I will not and do not hestitate to highly recommend this facility to anyone. Thank you ! Thank you !

I would most small towns, such as Hinton, would endeavor to build business rather than dlamiss it. I would like to call the town's attention to an incident which occured Saturday, September 10th. My wife and I were visiting Hinton and I went down- town to supposedly get a hair- cut. As I was getting change in the ~re, I inquired and the lady directed me just down the street to a barber- shop. The blinds were closed, but I did try the doorknob and found it to be open. I stepped in and the conversation went as follows. One individual, not the barber, rudely said " Closed"! and as I turned to go, he re- peated himself very hastily. I slammed the door in leaving and he then followed me out and yelled" Come back here !" and asked me why I had .slammed the door. !told him he needn't have repeated himself - I had indeed heard him! Al- though he did not identify him- self in any manner, he then informed me he was a police officer. After I explained to him that I was a barber from out of town, he told me to come back in, the barber might cut my hair. Being very angry by now, I told him I didn't need a damn haircut that badly. As I was again leaving, he yelled "Come back here !" and added " Smart - a ." My wife and I were planning to do some shopping; but then decided just to leave. In closing, I would like to guarantee any potential cust- omers, whether from out of town or not, that they wiK receive a haircut and be treat,: ed as I would like to have bee~ if they decide to visit my bar-~ bershop. Also, my blinds ar~ never closed during bus~ hours, and our police office~~ 'are hre to do their jobs as the~g. should - to enforce the law, but more importantly, to lend a' friendly helping hand.

The legislation increases rail- road retirement and unemploy- ment insurance taxes, defers certain cost - of - living in- creases, modifies early retire- ment provisions, subjects rail- road retirement annuities to Federal income taxes, and provides other measures des- igned to place railroad retire- ment and unemployment insur- ance programs on a sound financial basis. Without the an- funded by general revenue app- ropriations, is also added to the annuities of those who had vested rights to both social security and railroad retire- ment benefits before 1975. -o The Annual Wills Reunion was held on Sunday September 4, 1983 at Bass Lake Park near Hinton. All but three of the nine (9) children of the late Hubert and Mrs." Rosalie Wills of Hinton House were present. A day of conversation, fun, and games was enjoyed by the following: Mr. and Mrs. Donald Wills and Ricky of Reidsville, N.C.; Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Wills of Greensboro, N.C.; Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Wills, Mike, actment of this legislation, the Jeanette and Tiffany, of Col- umbus, Ohio; Mr. and Mrs. Bill Wills, Mr. and Mrs Mike Wills, Melissa and Todd, Mr. and Mrs Billy Joe Wills, Lorrie and Shellie , Mr. and Mrs. Arnold Armstrong, Eric, and Kathy , all of Clifton Forge, Virginia; Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Wills, Board would have been req- uired by law to substantially reduce railroad retirement annuities beginning October 1, 1983. Social security amendments enacted earlier this year had already effected changes in railroad retirement taxes and benefits through coordinating provisions in the Railroad Re- tirement Act. Under the 2 - tier railroad retirement system, the tier I portion of a railroad retirement annuity is generally equivalent to a social security benefit and based on both rail- road earnings and nonrallroad wage credits. Tier I railroad retirement taxes are at the same rate as social security taxes and increase when social security taxes rise. The tier II annuity portion is computed The following is a su/nmary of the major changes in road retirement benefits and taxes effected by both the rail. road retirement and social sec, urity. e Ken, Jr. and Denny, Mr. and Mrs Luther Wills, Mr. and Mrs., Estil Gill, James and Adam, all'. of Hinton; Mr. and Mrs. David~ Allen, Philip, Jennifer, and~~ Jonathan of St. Alhans, West: Virginia; Mrs. Bonnie Smith,: Pete, Virginia, and Joey, of- Hinton; Also Mr. and Mrs. Charles~ Willey of Akron, Ohio; Mrs.i Genevieve Davis of Asbury, W.i Va. ; Mr. and Mrs. Russel Br-i agg and Mrs. Gladys Bragg of Sandstone, W.

Social Security EARNINGS ABOVE THE ANNUAL LIMIT Social Security benefits are designed to replace in part loss of earnings as a result of disabi~ty, retirement, or death, Carl Stewart, SSA manager in Beckley, said. This means that for all beneficiaries expect those" receiving.i checks because of their own disability, there is a limit to how much they canearn and still be due all of their checks. ~ For every $2 in earnings above the limit ( called the annual i exempt amountL $I in Social Security benefits must be withheld. sad on railroad service alone and funded by additional ret- irement taxes.

Benefits are payable for : all months a per=on is 70 or older, regardless of the amount of his : or her earnings for the entire year. A special rule applies to the first year of retirement, Stewart : advised. A person whose annual earnings exceed the exempt : amount during the first year of retirement can still get a full benefit for any month he or she did not earn more than the monthly exempt amount ( $550 for people 65 and over, $410 for .: those under 65) and did not perform substantial services in self - employment. A person who works more than 45 hours a month in serf employment is considered to be providing substantial ser-: vices. Services may also be considered substantial even ff the : person works less than 45 hours ff the work requires con-: siderable skill or involves substantial respotmibilities. How-: ever, services are never considered substantial if the p~rson works less than 15 hours a month. Those who receive benefits because of their own disability are : required to report to Social Security any and all earnings from : work. If a disabled person works, he may be eligible for a 9 - month trial work period, Stewart explained, after which a new decision would have to be made as to whether he or she was still due disability benefits. Additional information about the a~nual exempt amount can be obtained from the Bcklcy Social Security office, 214 N. Kanawba Street ( P.O. Box Y).
