2A The Mountain Messenger, Thursday Mav 10. 1990 Vl,, Continued from Page 1-A and tutor neighbor children out of the goodness of her heart. At school, where she taught sec- ond grade for the past 15 years, she was always asked by her peers to take problem students into her classes to straighten them out; there was never one she couldn't, While her time has not been her own throughout most of her lifetime, she has always made time for her five children and husband, taking care to ensure that it was/is quality time. She has instilled a strong sense of moral values in each of us children, each student she taught and each person she knows; this was evidenced by the cards, calls, visits and kindnesses extended re- cently when her husband of nearly forty years, our father, passed away. Although it's a shame that Dad is gone so soon after her retirement, she has maintained a positive out- look on life and continues to set ex- amples for all of us to follow. To everyone whose life she has touched, Mom has become a mom, a sister, a friend and the pot of gold at the rainbow's end who's reward is the privilege of getting to know her. For these reasons and manY, many more Morn is the winner with me. --- Nancy Rose Lemons... Continued from Page 1-A to do their part. I think in wonder how she could have lived with her own parents who became as dependent on her as two more children. I think of her becom- ing a parent again when she offered her home to two teenage grandsons from a divorced home, I think of her unselfishness when she stayed for months with Cousin Arthur and Uncle Weller when they were dying with cancer and had no children of their own to take care of them. She could have enjoyed the carefree life of retirement, fulfilling her dream of touring the country with no sched- ules to keep, but instead she gave her time to other people. I laugh when I think of her un- usual hobbies of plumbing old bro- ken water pipes, repairing vacuum cleaners and lawn mowers, hauling compost to her garden. Only those who personally know her would real- ize she is for real, not a Super Mom from a cartoon strip, but truly a multi-talented, hard-working woman. Because my mother has given of herself to not only her family, but also to her church and community, I feel my mother deserved to be rec- ognized on Mother's Day. -- Doris Ann Taylor Duggan . . . Continued from Page 1-A Her motto is "If you can't do it, it grandchildren. Thank you for provid- can't be done." I hope to be half the ing me this opportunity to thank her mother she is to my children and for everything she has done. -- Sandra McClung K1000 w/50 MM f/2.0 95 PC505 95 Photo 120E.

You probably have already sent your's in by the time you read this. Peter Von Payne, Assistant Di- rector of the Census, made the fol- lowing remarks on Tom Snyder's Radio Show. Three hundred thou- sand workers, making from $5 to $8 per hour are busy taking the census. It takes seven years of planning to get the official census on the road. It tells the government where we live, the way we live, our life style. There is a $100 fine if you don't answer. Your answer will give you proper representation in Con- gress. There is no reason to be skit- tish about it. The information is con- fidential and secure. The total data is shared with municipal and state governments. Not personal data or personal information. This is the first census taken where the homeless will be counted! So now we go to a person in charge of a homeless Health Care Facility in Los Angeles for his input! He says they (the homeless) are families, younger men looking for jobs, many are black and latinos. The homeless in California came out of the north- east, "Rust Belts," to the west look- ing for work. There is a group called the "Hid- den Homeless," those who work, but live with friends or relatives. They cannot afford a place to live, al- though they are employed. Some of the hidden homeless will save enough to rent a place. The problem is that affordable housing is not easy to come by, even if they have the funds! Emergency shelter, transitional housing, drug treatment and primary health programs are provided, Since 1987, $46 million of Federal money has been appropriated for this pro- gram. However, congress cut the appropriation by $11 million this year just when, the director says, the program was beginning to bear fruit. A caller suggested empty hospi- tal space be used for the homeless and welfare recipients could provide From qualified, expernenced teacher.
