Be said that there was going to be another meeting with Bill Rupp of Billie 's this month, and at that time matters should be settled. We will have more on this next month. • I AGREE WITH people who think that paying the interim president of the Junior College $75 a day in addition to his normal $150'a day consulting fee to come to Key West is an outrage. If Monroe County costs about 10% more than other counties t o live in, then this new man should receive $165 daily (10% of $150 is $15, not $75). Even so, $165 is part'icularly high, and especially 80 since he will .receive pay for a seven-day week. I can 't imagine that a lot of perfectly qualified people wouldn't be willing to come here for a lot less than this man is going to make. And;, in the meantime, the. .ao.l.l.eg\e. -is. go~ing. to h&&.p the~-ex~president of the college on payroll at full salary as a consultant to the Fine Arts Building until August! IRONICALLY, AT THE same time that the college is pouring out all this money for twomenj more than 3 0, 00&-Dade~ and Monroe County families will lose part or all of their food stamp benefits beginning Marah l^.Ao.oal Department .of Health, and. Rehabilitative Services officials said. Everyone seems to feel that this will work an unfortunate hardship on 'a lot of people. Well, it will. Rather than huff and puff about the few who take advantage of food stamps, how about considering the enormous number of people for whom this has been a great blessing? Local HRS officials have expressed concern over possible hardships to low-income senior citizens due to the elimination of deductions for those medical expenses not covered by Medicaid and Medicare. Also, the working poor paying for child care may face reductions. This program should be brought back up to where it was before this recent cutback. CONGRATULATIONS TO Curt Blair, County Commissioner, for his recent appointment to the State Association of County Commissioners Legislative Committee on. Health and Social Services. The appointment, which is not given generally to freshman Commissioners, was made as a result of Blair's experience with health .and social services, Also, congratula-,. tions to Bil Butler on his appointment to the Civil Service Board and to Gus Perez on hie appointment as Fire Chief.
