ARNOLD PRESIDENT/PUBLISHER CHUCK CAVALLO EDITOR JOAN LAYNE OFFIC Bits and Pieces by Chuck CavaIlo Once again, Gilmer County has the chance to have an 'Instant Library' within its boundaries. The difference in the new proposal is, now, the Library Commission is able to provide funds for total construction and equipment of the proposed library. More than a year ago, the same proposal was made, except, this time, the state would provide total funding for the project. Under the new proposal, Gilmer Countians would only provide funds for yearly operating cost. (Estimated at around $7,500} Unemployment rate drops As a result of a decrease in the rate of insured unemployment in the state, the current duration of West Virginian's Federal Supplemental Benefits {FSB}, Federally-funded com- pensation payable to individuals exhausting other unemployment bene- fits, is being reduced from 26 weeks to 13, Clement R. Bassett, Commissioner of the West Virginia Department of Employment Security, announced. The reduction, required by Federal Law, limits the number of weeks beginning on or after May 16. 1976 for which unemployed West Virginians may receive FSB and will affect individuals fding new claims for Federal Supplemental Benefits after that date, as well as those having more than 13 weeks of benefits remaining on previously established claims. The availability and duration of Federal Supplemental Benefits depend upon the state's insured unemployment rate {IUR} for a moving 13 - week average, Commissioner Bassett ex- plained. If the rate equals or exceeds six percent, an eligible individual may receive Federal Supplemental Benefits equal to 100 percent of his regular benefits {up to 26 weeks). If the rate is less than six percent, but equals or exceeds  five percent, the FSB program will pay only 50 percent of the claimant's regular benefits {up to 13 weeks}. West Virginia's rate, above 6 percent since January, fell to 5.89 percent recently, triggering the 13-week reduction in current entitle- ment effective May 16. Should the rate drop below five percent, the FSB program would terminate in the state after a 13-week phase-out period. To be eligible for Federal Supplemental Benefits, a claimant must be totally or partially unemployed and meet the requirements of the West 000000OOOOOOOO Originally, if approved, operating costs would be shared between the County Commission and the city of Glenville. Sources indicate that Glenville City Fathers are still willing to consider this ff the County Commission will do the same. The library is for Gilmer County. Some people don't seem to realize that the Glenville State College Library cannot hope to meet the varied needs of all the people in the county. It is a college library for college students. The monthly bookmobile visit is almost phased out of existence. Virginia Unemployment Compensation Law, including being able to work, available for full-time work, and registered for work with the Employment Service. A claimant may be disqualified from receiving Federal Supplemental Benefits for voluntarily leaving employment, being discharged for misconduct, or other reasons cited in the state Unemployment Compensa- tion Law. Federal Supplemental Benefits, payable to an eligible claimant at the same weekly rate as his exhausted regular claim, are funded entirely by the Federal government. Claims for Federal Supplemental Benefits may be filed at the nearest unemployment compensation office of the West Virginia Department of Employment Security. The FSB program will end in all states on March 31, 1977: SUBURBIA "It's your broker. Do you want to take the call here, or on the extension in the study?" News for Consumers Atty. Gen. Chauncey Brewinj Dne out of every five people changes residence each year, and 20% of those who move file damage or loss claims. It is therefore very important for consumers to know how to prepare for a move so that problems can be kept to a minimum. The secret to a good move is good planning. It is best to choose a moving company a month or two before your desired moving date. Have several companies send a representative to your home for an estimate. In order to help you make a selection, each mover is rtluired to furnish a report of its performance along with "Summary of Information for Shippers of Household Goods", a pamphlet prepared by the Interstate Commerce Commission. You should remember that the exact cost of your move cannot be determined until your household goods are weighed after the van is loaded. Keep this in mind when the representative gives you an estimate - it may cost more or less depending on the actual weight. Beware of companies that may offer an unrealistically low figure in order to secure your business. You may want the mover to pack your household goods before the transfer: however, this may mean an additional charge. Even though they do the packing and unpacking for you, there are certain preparations which are your responsibflib/. Major appliances require disconnecting and special services to protect them during shipment. Any items attached to walls or floors, such as draperies or tacked-down carpeting should be removed. Never pack money, jewelry or important documents with the rest of the shipment because the mover may not be liable for their loss or damage. It is essential that you understand how much the shipper is responsible for in the event your goods are lost or damaged. Unless you purchase additional coverage, you will be reimbursed 60 cents par pound per article for each item damaged or lost. If you wish to be paid full value for lost or damaged articles, you must declare a lump-sum value for the entire shipment and pay an extra charge depending  the value you declare. At the time of pickup, the mover will issue you a bill of lading which is the contract of transportation between you and the mover. This is an important document since it serves as a receipt for your goods. On the bill of lading you should find the weight of the van before loading {tare weight), the correct destination address, and information on bow to notify you of any costs and delays. As a final note, before the movers leave, check the inventory of your goods and be sure that you agree with them on the condition of the items packed. There are several agencies you may contact if you have any questions about moving. The Interstate Commerce Commission, 3103 Federal Building, 500 Quarrier Street, Charleston, W. Va. 25301, handles questions concerning moves from one state to another. The Public Service Comission, Motor Carrier Division, State Capital/ Charleston, W. Va. 25305, handles matters involving moves within West Virginia. Or you may call our Consumer Prbection Division in Charleston at 348-8986 for further information.

FmHA available to assist development J. Kenton Lambert, State Director of the Farmers Home Administration, recently pointed out that there are many ways his Agency's authorities and available assistance can be used to provide severely needed public utilities and other essential community facilities for West Virginia communi- ties which have populations less than 10,000. This fiscal year has already seen more water and sewer dollars made available through FmHA to assist more West Virginians in acquiring new or improved water or sewer service than in any previous year. Lambert revealed that during the first 9 months of this Pineal year more than $15,600,00 has been made available in the form of loans and grants for 26 projects which serve over 94,000 people. The Farmers Home Administra- tion makes its loans and grants for water and sewer available to public bodies and nonprofit organizations, which are rural in nature and serve primarily rural residents, to develop or improve domestic water supply systems and waste disposal systems. The term "rural" is defined as any area not having a city or town of more than 10.000 population located within it. A borrower's total indebtedness for these loans, together with any assistance in the form of a grant, cannot exceed $4,000,000 at any one time. The maximum term or length of time for the loans is 40 years and the present interest rate is 5%. Grants can be made up to 50o/0 of the total eligible cost of a project and are sub}act to Grants are extent individual lion to debt equal to 10 income for specific 'New ments and closely projects." values up enough to grant in a short concluded.

Experts p r e d i c t that, from a material stand- point, the future looks bright for the United States. By the year 2000, for example, our gross na- tional product will have more than doubled to at least $3 trillion, and, with a projected population of 250 million persons, the average family income is expected to be about $23,- 000 annually. The trend toward small- er families is expected to continue, which will help to balance the increased costs of education for the American family.
