Stick a couple of sprigs under your pillow in the morning and when you lie down that night all your thoughts will be sweet ones as you drift off to sleep. t think I will continue this list in my next column, which will be as unscientific as this one. My dislike of marigolds and gladiolus is not based on anything important. I don't like the metal smell of marigolds or their lack of nuance. Gladiolus remind me of stiff dinner parties where no one means anything they say. I haven't a clue as to why. But what's the point in writing about flowers I don't like when there are so many I do. Yes, t will continue next week with my pet flower list. The newly created Property Vaiu- Training and Procedures Cam- held its first meeting in Mar- last week.

Disabled Workers May Now Have Higher Earnings The Commission will meet again July 10 in Parkersburg. $100 Grand Grant For Job Training Governor Gaston Caperton an- nounced today that an additional $tOO,OO0 in federal job training money has been awarded to the West Virginia Building and Con- struction Trades Council, AFL-CIO. The funds, made availabie through the Job Training Partnersb p Act, "will be used to sponsor job training programs and related sup- port services for workers who have been or are about to be laid off as a result of technological change, for- eign competition, or the permanent closing of a plant of business.

Evans, Social Security manager in Covington, said changes in Social Security regula- tions which became effective this year raised the monthly earnings amount which counts in a "trial work period" from $75 to $200. A trial work period is a nine-mdrITh period during which a disabled person can test returning to work without a loss of benefits. For self-employed people, the work hours that count for a trial work period increased from 15 to 40 hours per month. At the end of a trial work period, work activity is evaluated and a determination is made of the person's ability to con- tinue working. If a person's earnings level is considered "substantial gain- ful activity have increased from $300 to $500 a month. ("[he monthly earnings limit for the blind is $780). "This change means a significant expansion of the opportunities avail- able to disabled people who wish to return to work," according to Mr Evans. People who receive Supple- mental Security Income (SSI) be- cause of disability should contact Social Security for more information about work because thp. rules are different. The Covington Social Security of- rice is located at 214 West Main Street.
