With the levy results as of December 13 a third factor faces the legislature for this county and that is the cost of utilities, transportation, textbooks, etc. All interested parents, persons and teachers should monitor the legislative proposals very carefully. With all the furor over the 22,500 former college students owing the federal government over $400,000,000 in student loans, Jefferson County can record a plus. Shepherd College was a participant in this program and does have students with unpaid loans but at our college the percentage is much lower than the national average. Our Shepherd College Foun- dation has provided matching monies on the one to nine basis and we are getting our monies hack on a regular basis or in another way money coming hack just about takes care of the annual matching need. The government does not allow garnisheeing of pay so persons owing the government and working for the government have an "escape clause". It is understood that at many colleges the loan officers treated the loans as scholarships in-so- far as impressing the repayment plan with students. Now we come to welfare. It has been reported that 1253 West Virginia employees are also drawing some welfare checks. Aid to Dependent Children goes to about 200 and some 400 are eligible and do receive food stamps. When you consider the Comprehensive Education Training Act 'CETA' which is federally funded at minimum CE wages it is understandable that because of family size many ,o o, y .. would qualify for food stamps OC,or"Pa"Y according to the U.S. Depart- ..,. , ---------- ment of Agriculture.
