CHUCK CAVALLO EDITOR JOAN LAYNE CIRCU LATION MANAGER Bits & Pieces Know what you're voting for Voter apathy is by far the worst political vice a nation can be afflicted with. I think the foremost reason for this is an attitude like..."well, what will my one vote mean or I'm just one in thousands or it hasn't got anything to do with me." Webster defines apathy as a lack of interest or concern; indifference. This can be applied to the problem in two ways. First, indifference to whether one votes or not. The vote is the single most effective way we have to implement hange. SurelyCin the past months we have seen what apathy towards government brings about. Watergate, cover-ups, corruption and criminal activity in government stems directly from the lack of control the citizens of this country have over its government, the "I can't do a thing about it"" syndrome. Well we can if we do one simple thing...think! Then act! Which brings me to the second part of the problem. For vote, how many take the time the issues, those running for we stop and say "Is this in interest" or "Can he or she us in our best interests?" Think about it. popping up all over. Sureh has come for the people to their country is slipping them. Know who and voting for. Keep America and for the people." Editor, Glenville Democrat: October 26 and 27 more than 30 of our relatives and friends slept in the New Lodge and socialized in the Dining Hall at the Recreation Center. They had been told it was a 4-H Center and probably a little rustic. They were so pleased with what they found they could not believe it. They expected to f'md "Two holes and a path"...they still write us in disbelief. Our relatives are from Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia. Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland, St. Albans, Belle and Parkersburg. No county and few states can approach what we have there for our boys and girls, sings, reunions and Good Will Dinners. It is approaching levy time. When the Revenue Sharing Act was passed it was stipulated that much consideration was to be given to youth and senior citizens. Ten percent of our National Population are senior citizens. A recent otudy showed that less than 4 percent went to the senior citizen program. Gilmer got a nice check from the special coal tax and will get some more and the Revenue Sharing Act is up for renewal. We would like to urge our County Commissions to be as liberal as possible for our senior citizen programs, ambulance service and the Recreation Center so the Park and Recreation Commission may go forward to maintain and improve the services 'there. We know the Commissions have many requests and we would like to thank present and past Commissions for consideration given and hope future ones will be as liberal or ntore so. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Gilbert Reed News for Consumers by Atly. Gem. f00ucoy Ilrowlaul It's a relatively easy matte/" to get a "loan" from a bank or other lending institution - bu to prevent stretching your income too thin, there are several questions you should ask yourself before you borrow money. -Do I really need this loan? You should try to d/stinguish between "want" and "need". An emergency may require the need for a loan. But making expensive purchases just "to keep up with the Joneses" seldom, if ever, constitutes a "need',t, --Can I actually afford to borrow? If you maintain a steady income from a job or other sources, if you are able to make the monthly payments out of take-home pay, and if you do not have several other debts, you may be able to handle it, but take all of these factors into consideration before applyin 8 for a loan. To be sure that you are answering these questions realistically you should have a budget of your actual income and expenditures worked out on paper. The average consumer's total debt payments, excluding mortgage, shouldn't exceed 20O/o of the monthly take-home pay. Actually, in today's economy you' re much safer if you keep the payments down to 17%. -Will ny new loan payments cut into my savings plan? Regular savings should be a basic part of your budget. If you are unable to save with your present income, you shouldn't consider borrowing. Before you borrow, you should try to build a substantial amount in savings in case emergencies occur. -Have I comparison shopped carefully for the loan? We all spend a lot of time shopping for clothes, food and appliances, however many neglect to spend as much time shopping for credit. Loans are just ways to acquire money in order to spend it, and wise consumers shop around for the "cheapest" money they can obtain. To compare interest chsrges, look for the Annual Percentage Rate (APR). Under the Truth in Lending Act, you must be informed of the APR, which includes the basic Fmance charge. In addition, any add-on costs such as credit investigations, service charges and mandatory insurance premiums must be included. -Have I been truthful with the lender about my Fmancial situation? Lenders want you as a customer, however, they don't want any trouble over the repayment. A loan default causes a bad situation for both parties. Be sure to tell your situation frankly. If the lender turns you down it's natural to be disappointed: however. he may see something "dangerous" in your situation and it will be to your advantage if you find out the reassert for the rejection,. -Do I understand the contract? Make sure you read your contract very carefuly and understand every obligation. If you have questions and the lending officer can't answer them to your satisfaction, go elsewhere. If you have any questions concerning loans or any other consumer matter, you may contact the Consumer Protection Division {CPD) by phoning 348-8986: or write the CPD, Office of the Attorney General, State Capitol, Charleston. West Virginia National Nutrition Week to be Govrnor Arch A. Moore has proclaimed the week of March 7-13. 1976 aS National Nutrition Week in West Virginia.

Byrd of West Virginia and six other senators, and Congressman Burleson of Texas and 72 other Congressman. The legislation would increase the federal estate tax exemption from $60.000 to $200.000. increases the marital deduction from 50 percent of the gross estate of $100.000 plus 50 percent of the gross estate, and provide a method for valuing farm estates at their farming values rather than values for highest possible use. The boards action was taken in accordance with the policies of the more than 5.500 family members of West Virginia's largest general farm organization.
