Activities promoting Sun Week are taking shape all over the nation. In the Charles Town- Middleway area, members of the Middleway 4-H Climbers Club have been busy preparing for Sun Week. Members of this energetic group urge you to become aware of alternate energy sources. Solar energy is virtually non-polluting, inexhaustible, available everywhere, terrorist-resistant, and free.

Improvement Work On Highways He/e CHARLESTON --.

SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE THURSDAY, MAY 4,1978 Social Security Amendments Contain Beneficiary Change The 1977 Social Security amendments included a change in law which affects all beneficiaries, but may affect" "students" most of all, ac- cording to Gary Wolfsheimer, Branch Manager, Martinsburg Social SEcurity Office. In the past, Social Security recipients were allowed to receive benefits due during a year if they either did not earn over $3,000; or if they earned over $3,000 beneficiaires could receive benefits for those months in which the parson did not earn over $250. As of 1978, the second part of this rule, known as the "monthly retirement test" no longer applies (except in the first year of entitlement). Thus, those people who receive Social Security checks monthly In announcing the work, Rockefeller commended Delegate Bianca James and State Senator William Oates, Jr., for their aggressive support of the administration's ac- celerated highway program. Bids will be opened for resurfacing 2.12 miles of Old Furnace Road on County 28 and 2.05 miles of Country Club Road on County 24. 9 will only be entitled to a full year's benefit if they earn less than $3240 in a_ year. Students are particularly affected because they may earn wages while going to school and then work full-time upon graduation. The "monthly retirement test" allowed Social Security to pay benefits for those months during which the student earned less than $250. This usually meant the student received payment until he graduated and started working full-time. However, because the "monthly test" no longer is applicable, a student may noi be entitled to benefits for the months he attended school if the total yearly wages are much higher than $3240. All "student" beneficiaries should report to Social Security immediately if it is expected that they will earn over $3240 between January and Decem- ber. This early report will assure that the beneficiary's rights are protected as well as preventing a possible overpayment in Social Security payments. The Social Security Office is located at 615 W. King St., Martinsburg. The telephone number is 263-6911. TEX'S MERCHANDISE MART ROUTE 7- ONE MILE WEST BERRYVILLE, Va.
