Senior citizen tax Eastern Star relief deadline nears According to Okanogan age or older last January 1 Assessor Bain Crofoot, or be retired from gainful senior citizens and retired disabled persons eligible for property tax exemption benefits must submit claims to the assessor's office by June 30 in order to receive property tax savings in 1982. Eligibility for tax relief requires that applicants must have been 61 years of employment because of physical disability at any age. Combined family in- come cannot exceed $14,000 a year and an applicant must be the owner and occupant of the house or mobile home as of January 1, 1981. Owner- ship can include life estates, and confinement in a Olympia Report By Earl F. Troy One reads almost daily a story in the newspaper about families or children who have had their public assistance cut and are desperately in need of help. Usually, however, if we read further, some of these people may be employable. These people will not be receiving public assistance because the Legislature, in keeping with the wishes of the voting public, had to tighten up eligibility requirements and remove some of these people from welfare rolls. Hopefully, they will end up on payrolls. But there are those who are needy, but have suf- ficient income to eliminate them from participation in the various public assistance programs. There are some very real answers to these problems which I think many OF us have overlooked. It was not an easy decision to simply say, "No, you can- not receive supplemental in- come or chore services." Cutting is never easy, but we did our best to do so fairly and humanely. Still, there will be people, including some we know, who will need assistance. This is where you and I come in. In the days before the automobile separated us so far from our immediate families or close circle of life-long friends, we all pit- ched in to help one another. Why, barn ralsings are a perfect example, and we participated not so very long ago. When the new family came to the area, or a neigh- bet needed help repairing the barn, everyone pitched in. Some people brought skills, other their food, and some their entertainment. Everyone added what they could to help. Where have those days gone? Today, when there are people who need help, must we shake our heads and sim- ply look the other way? I hope not. It is my hope that we could bring back that tradition of helping our neighbor. It is not a difficult one. We all have skills, we can pitch in and help. In fact, this very subject - volunteerism- is the subject of a House State Govern- ment Committee meeting scheduled for this weekend. Because we have people who need our help, it is up to us, as people, as members of churches or civic and social organizations to help those less fortunate than we. Persons interested can at- tend this meeting, which is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. on Friday, July 12, in House Of- fice Building, Room 334 in Olympia. Or give me a call and I will relay your input If you like, a letter may be submitted to the committee for consideration. Please feel free to Join us in our ef- fort to help one another. hospital or nursing home will not disqualify claim of exemption. Persons qualifying for these tax benefits, or desiring further information as to elgibility require- manta, should contact the Okanogan County Assessors Office.

As an added surprise to all and especially to caller Wos Holman, there was a very strange 'couple' who also came to graduate. As it turned out the couple was Billy Gfllham, who looked like an old man from the mountains and Chuck Fuller who dressed up as his 'wife' who had come from a little farther back in the moan- tainsl I l It was great fun and lot a laughs. Onr nest dm was with the Bridgeport Denim and Ginghams with Billy Gfltham as the caller. Billy did an all singing call dance which was very en- Joyable. Wos and Murilyn Hoiman were guest callers. Once again there was an ODD COUPLE, this time it was Chuck Fuller and Wes Holman who gave Billy a BIG surprise with their arrival. You Just never know what you might see at a square dance anymorel I I t I l Saturday, May 30 found us headed for River s/de with well over a square in our motorhome. We all en- Joyed the super calling of Doug Davis of Spokane. The 6th of June found us up bright and early (and I do mean early) and on our way to Bridgeport for the Bridgeport Daze Parade. Af- ter breakfast in Bridgeport it Robin did the driving and Vera and LaRDy 8orensen, Chuck Fuller, Bert and Florence Lehman, Larry Miller, Pete and Gert Davis and Art and Dora Adams did the dancing. After the parade we enjoyed "the delicious Bar-B-Q dinner in the park. After a little more dancing in the park we headed for home. Later that night we put our tired feet back in our dancin' shoes and went to hear the ex- ceHent oalling of Bob Wright Jr. at the Chelan Grade School as he called for the Swingln' Lakers. The next big event will be the National Square Dance Convention in Seattle. This will be June 25 to 27.
