CENTER STAGE Cloggers entertained at the market on Saturday. --Mine disaster--- From Page 1 When train No. 4 pulled into the depot Mrs. Barrowman alighted buoyantly, while all the porters were eager to assist with her luggage. She looked around the depot Platform expecting every minute to see her husband rushing to her, as she had not seen any of the papers and was not informed of the accident which had cost him his life. Finally she became resigned to the fact that her hus- band was not at the station and she went directly to the Altamont Hotel, after giving her luggage to a porter. Arriving at the hotel she went to the desk and asked if Mr. Barrowman was stopping at the hotel. The clerk, Mr. Banner, said he only knew one man by that name and he lived in Bluefield. Mrs. Barrowman said that her husband lived at Tacoma. The clerk then told the woman that a Mr. Taylor, of Coeburn, was stopping at the hotel, and he asked if Mrs. Barrowman called to tell her that he would be in to see her in a short time. When Mrs. Barrowman received this message she asked to have a bell boy call Mr. Taylor, but it was found that he was not at the hotel, having just stepped out. Mrs. Barrowman evidently suspected something was wrong and she suddenly said that she wanted to register and go to a room. She registered as Mrs. James Barrowman and was assigned a room. After her baggage was deposited in the room she started to the entrance of the hotel on her way out and was met at the door by Mr. Taylor, who had missed her at the train. She was taken into the hotel parlor by Mr. Taylor who broke the news of her husband's tragic death. Christmas will mean little to the new-made widow, who is childless and whose parents are dead. She wired Mr. Barrowman on Tuesday aftemoon to meet her in Bluefield yesterday morning, and he had made all arrangements for the meeting to which he looked forward to such an extent that he had told all of his men he was going to Bluefield in the afternoon, so as to be there to meet his wife who was coming home. It was while mak- ing a last trip over the mine to see that everything was all right that the explosion which cost his life and that of nine other men occurred.

Each school and/or central school nutri- tion office has a copy of the policy, which may be reviewed by any interested party. Household size and income will be used to determine eligibility for free or reduced price meal benefits. Children from households whose income is at or below the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines, shown in the chart below, may be eligi- ble for either free or reduced price meals. Children who are members of households receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly the Food Stamp Program) or who receive Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) may be automatically eligible for free meals. Children who are homeless, migrant, or runaway may also be auto- matically eligible for free meals. Foster children, who are the legal responsi- bility of a welfare agency or court, are eligible for free meals regardless of the income of the household with whom they reside. Children who are members of households participating in W-IC may also be eligi- ble 'for free or reduced- price meals based on the household's income. Application forms are being distributed to all households with a letter informing households of the availability of free or reduced price meals for their children. Applications are also avail- able at the principal's office in each school and at the central office. To apply for free or reduced price meals, households must only fill out one applica- tion per household and return it to the school divi- sion. Applications may be submitted at any time dur- ing the school year. The information households provide on the application will be used for determin- ing eligibility and verifica- tion of data. Applications may be verified at any time during the school year by school or other program officials. For school offi- cials to determine eligibili- ty for free or reduced price benefits, households receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly the Food Stamp Program) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) only have to list their child(ren)'s name and SNAP or TANF case number and an adult household member must sign the application. Households who do not list a SNAP or TANF case number, including WIC households, must list the names of all household members, the amount and frequency of the income received by each house- hold member, .and the last four digits of the social security number of the adult household member who signs the application. If the household member does not have a social secu- rity number, the household member must indicate that a social security number is not available. The applica- tion must be signed by an adult household member in order to be approved. Under the provisions of the free and reduced price meal policy, Kim Hooker P.O. Box 8 Lebanon, VA 24266 (276) 889-6500 will review applications and determine eligibility. An application for free or reduced price meals cannot be approved unless it is complete. Households dissatisfied with the ruling of the eligi- bility determining official may wish to discuss the decision with the official on an informal basis. Households wishing to make a formal appeal for a hearing on the decision may make a request either verbally or in writing to: Scotty Fletcher P.O. Box 8 Lebanon, VA 24266 (276) 889-6500 Households may apply for free or reduced price meals at any time during the school year. If a house- hold is not eligible now but has a change, such as a decrease in household income, an increase in household size, becomes unemployed or qualifies for SNAP or TANF, the household should contact the school for an applica- tion. Such changes may make the children of the household eligible for ben- efits if the household's income falls at or below the Federal Income Eligibility Guidelines.. Households that receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits (formerly the Food Stamp Program) or Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) may not have to complete an application for free or reduced price stu- dent meals. School offi- cials will determine eligi- bility for free meals based on documentation, obtained directly from the Virginia Department of Social Services, that a child is a member of a household currently receiving SNAP or TANF. School officials will notify these house- holds in writing of their eli- gibility. Households who are notifiedof their eligi- bility, but who do not want their children to receive free meals, must contact the school. SNAP and TANF households must complete an application if they are not notified in writing of their automatic eligibility within the first 10 days of the new school year.
