Veterans Eligible For GI Dividends
Congress recently passed a bill that entitles veterans to a dividend on GI insurance (SGLI) which military personnel held while in the service. Any current or former military service man or woman is entitled to this dividend regardless of whether they still carry the insurance.
The Veterans Administration will not be reviewing each case individually to determine eligibility. However, the general schedule of dividends earned is: for two years of service, $261.00; for three years of service, $391; for four years of service, $528.
If you think you are eligible, you must apply for the dividend. To apply for your disbursement, send your name, address, GI number (if you know it), and branch of service to: Veterans Center, P.O. Box 8079, Philadelphia, PA 19101. If you still have your copy of you DD Form 214, attach a copy of that with your letter of application.
Remember, you need to apply for this, otherwise, the Veterans Administration WILL NOT ISSUE THE MONEY TO YOU.

Woman Shopping at Tuttle Mall
Read this, it will be good for you..................
Ladies, This is for you !! This happened in Columbus:
A woman was shopping at the Tuttle Mall in Columbus. She came out to her car and saw she had a flat. She got her jack, spare out of the trunk. A man in a business suit came up and started to help her.
When the tire had been replaced, he asked for a ride to his car on the opposite side of the Mall. Feeling uncomfortable about doing this, she stalled for a while, but he kept pressing her. She finally asked why he was on this side of the Mall if his car was on the other. He claimed he had been talking to friends. Still uncomfortable, she told him that she had just remembered something she had forgotten to pick up at the mall and she left him and went back inside the mall. She reported the incident to the mall security and they went out to her car.The man was nowhere in sight. Opening her trunk, she discovered a brief case the man had set inside her trunk while helping her with the tire. Inside was rope and a butcher knife! When she took the tire to be fixed, the mechanic informed her that there was nothing wrong with her tire, that it was flat because the air had been let out of it!
The moral of this story... learn to change your own tire, call someone you know and trust to help you or call mall security in the first place to assist you. Please Be Safe... and not sorry.
[ Editor's Note: Tuttle Mall officials want the public to know that a story about a man threatening a woman in the parking lot is a work of fiction. ]
Check the ingredients listed on your shampoo bottle, and see if they have this substance by the name of Sodium Laureth Sulfate, or simply SLS. This substance is found in most shampoos, and the manufactures use it because it produces a lot of foam and it is cheap.
BUT the fact is that SLS is used to scrub garage floors, and it is very strong. It is also proven that it can cause cancer in the long run. I went home and checked my shampoo (Vidal Sasoon), it doesn't contain it; however, others such as Vo5, Palmolive, Paul Mitchell, the new Hemp shampoo, etc. Contains this substance.
So I called one company, and I told them their product contains a substance that will cause people to have cancer. They said "Yeah, we know about it but there is nothing we can do because we need that substance to produce foam.
By the way, Colgate toothpaste also contains the same substance to produce the "bubbles." They said they are going to send me some info. Research has shown that in the 1980s, the chance of getting cancer is 1 out of 8000 and now, in the 1990s, the chances of getting cancer is 1 out of 3, which is very serious.
So I hope that you will take this seriously and pass this on to all the people you know, and hopefully, we can stop giving ourselves the cancer virus.
Check your bottles and toothpaste!
