2 The Glenvllle Democrat/ Pathfinder December 2, 1976 Letters to Santa Build a nursing home A few weeks ago we printed a news article based on a private study which revealed the need for a nursing home in Gilmer County. It has since come to our attention that various methods of funding such a project are available. The Region 7 Commission on Aging has told us that a county commission, city council or any incorporated group such as a senior citizens or development group can apply through them for funds from various national health programs. There are also reputable naffonal nursing home ctntractors who ca n be induced to build in this area. We are not, of course, advocating simply warehousing our elderly citizens. It is always more desirable for senior citizens to live in homes of their own. However, it is sometimes impossible either for reasons of bad health or extreme poverty for some senior citizens to live in private homes. Studies show senior citizen poplion generally growing in Gilmer County at a rate faster than&apos;!e state as a whole. Approximately 21.3 per cent of the people 65 years old or older in Gilmer County are living below the poverty level. The Region 7 Commission on Aging feels there's a real need for a nursing home in Gilmer County. Perhaps some group in the county can muster the spirit thai brought us a medical and dental clinic and provide an equally fine facility for those in our county who need the services of a nursing home. School bond alternatives To "llm gda While I am concerned about the need for better education of our children and the condition of the present School buildings, I think there's a better way to remodel and renovate them. As you all may very well know it costs quite a large sum of money to hold a special election as proposed to be held December 17th 1976; well, this money could be put into a school fund. Also the money that was spent to build the Glenville Elementary School at Hays City could have been used to remodel and repair existing buildings. Please don't get me wrong, the school is a very fine looking school. Now to get to some other wavs of imvrovin the conditions and appearance of the existing buildings, I will list in numerical order the thing I would propose. -I- Hold benifit dances at the Gilmer County Recreation Center. -2- Hold door to door fund raising campaigns such as the Cancer Society does. -3- Use carnival profit. -4- To improve the appearance, paint the inside and outside of each school some modern color. -5- Have Country Music Stars such as Chafli Pride t the,HighScool from time to tjm,ILwat, donaback in the early fifties, : ' ' ': ', '' -6- If presenVcateCtrical wiring is not sttttttle fOYthe+Od/i'Wnolroiecter and etc, have Mr. Claude Coberly or some other qualified person to rewire them. I'm sure they would give a discount for the betterment of the schools. In closing may I say this. that if you proceed to pass the bond it will not be fair, because it will raise the taxes on the farmers and business people in Gilmer County. The fair way would be the way I have proposed so that everyone would be contributing a little amount at a time throughout the year and not the way the passage of the bond would do.

To take a better iob, I moved to another state 5000 miles away. Are any of the moving costs deductible? A. When you move to work at a new factory, office or other principal work place, you may be able to deduct some of the costs of the move. The cost of travel to the new location, moving of. household goods and personal effects, pre-move house hunting trips and other expenses may be deductible if  i the move meets certain requirements. The distance between your new work place and old residence must be at least 50 miles farther than the distance between your old residence and old work place.
