PAGE 4 WALTON COUNTY DEMOCRAT ton County FROM THE BOTTOM OF A GRATEFUL HEART I want to thank each of you for the wonderful vote you gave me on October 3. I need your help again on November 7. I WOULD LIKE TO EXPRESS MY APPRECIATION to Mr. M. M. (Junior) Adkinson for the manner in which he conducted himself in both campaigns,, and, to: ,again~ thank the candidates who lost out in the first primary for the honest, clean, campaign they ran. This speaks well for Walton County by looking at the mud sling- ing and trouble this election year created in some of the surround- ing counties. I would appreciate each of ya'lls personal help and support on November 7. I WANT TO BE YOUR NEXT SHERIFF and if honored with this most important office, I will use my experience and qualifica- tions to try and solve the murder case in the Darlington area, which is unsolved and also to investigate each death of any person which is questionable, to the fullest extent. 1 will try and stop the stealing and breaking and entering we are having in our county. If you call the sheriff's office, someone will come to your aid immediately, not wait several hoursor not come at all. 1 WILL HIRE DEPUTIES who are old enough and settled enough in life to know what a struggle life is, deputies who have good common sense and if you have violated the law, will make an arrest for what you have done, not to just hear your name broad- cast over the radio the next day. I AM OPPOSED TO PRINTING OR BROADCASTING anyones name that has been arrested before their conviction. By the law we all live under, any person is presumed innocent until proven guilty. 1 WILL STRIVE TO HALT ALL DOPE TRAFFIC in our county, not to just break a few limbs from the tree, but to find the roots of the dope problem and cut them so these awful drugs will be swept from our county. ! will assist and help our young people of the county who have drug problems and will strive to get them started on the right road in life. THERE ARE ENOUGH TAX DOLLARS appropriated to operate the sheriff's department on a good sound basis. I will train an investigator from our own county, or will do it myself, and as the present sheriff is doing, will not have to wait for someone to come from some other city to investigate a crime. 1 WILL STRIVE HARD TO CLEAN UP the county jail and to keep it clean. It is suprising what a little soap and water and a good coat of paint will do. I WILL GIVE THE BONDING BUSINESS back to the people of the county, so a person can be released from jail without the help of a professional bondsman. I WANT AND NEED YOUR VOTE AND SUPPORT. i need you talking for me now. GO TO THE POLLS ON NOVEMBER 7 and vote for the man who you think will make you the best sheriff for the next four years. Carry a friend or neighbor with you. THANK YOU I M II I II Economic Stabilisstion -- I i Internal Revenue Service in- vestigators are checking rents in Alabama buildings in a na- tional Rent Watch to prevent landlords from boosting rents to take advantage of tenants' .acreased Social Security pay- ments. "This month, 28 million Social Security recipients will receive a 20 percent increase in their payments," Grover Worth, Jr., IRS District Sta- bilization Manager in Alabama, said. "We are urging land- lords not to raise rents unless they are certain such increases are legal." "In many cases, landlords have already raised rents this year and must wait until 12 months have elapsed since that increase before raising rents again," Worth said. Landlords must not raise rents beyond a maximum g.5 percent a year increase plus prorated passthroughs of in- creased taxes, municipal fees, services and capital improve- ments. Tenants also should re- ceive a detailed 30 day notice. The Cost of Living Council has given the IRS new adminis- B.J.

THE FLORALA NEWS - THURSDAY, OCTOBER II I III IIIII I I II I _ L. :ratlve sanction powers to pro- tect tenants from illegal rent increases. Now the IRS can order landlords violating re- gulations to restore overpay- ments to tenants, roll back rents to legal limits and impose penalties of double the over- charged rent. The Revenue Service will re- fer to the Justice Department for prosecution cases of fla- grant and willful violation of rent rules, the district Sta- btliMtion manager said. Worth urged tenants to re- port rent increases which they consider illegal. The IR$ gives priority handling to rent com- plaints from Social Security re- cipients, "Tot insure their complaints receive handling priority, citi- zens should identify themselves as Social Security recipients when they contact us, especially by telephone or letter," Worth said. All residential rental units under controls are covered by Rent Watch. This generally includes all units owned by landlords with an interest in more than four units. Ex- clnded are landlords with less than four units and housing controlled by the Federal, state and local governments. IRS offices have copies of Form S-38, which shows the de- tailed information landlords must supply in notifying tenants of proposed increases. "Use of the form, however, does not mean the IRS has ap- proved a rent increase. If the landlord does not give the tenant proper notice, any increase, even one justifiable under the rules, is illegal," Worth said. Landlords who evict or harass tenants in retaliation for protesting allegedly illegal rent increases to the IRS violate rent regulations and face possible criminal or civil penalties. "Tenants who are harassed or receive eviction notices after complaining about a rent in- crease should contact their IRS office, continue to pay rent and keep records of payments thought to be excessive, "Worth said.

Our schools use hundreds of things that are made from oil: deaf and fiberglass seats, educational films, tapes and records, paint, even the erasers on pencils. But most of all, schools use energy. For heat, light and trans 75% of all our energy comes from oil and natural gas (inc of our electricity). But today, we're using these petroleum fuels faster than We finding them.
