TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law." — Romans 13:10 Amy says Bcnoit never lived in her home and claims the incorrect address was the result of a misunderstanding between Benoit and law enforcement officers. A single mother, Amy, 26, became afraid she and her 16-month- old daughter were going to lose their new home after waiting half a year to be placed there. Before Amy received her new home in February, she was living in a one-bedroom home, and the rent was taking up half of her income. She said she only met Benoit three weeks before his arrest, and they were not much more than acquaintances. She said she did not know anything about the alleged drug activity in which he was involved. Police Chief Jim Hill said the officers did not pull the address listed on Benoit's arrest report out of the air. He said Benoit gave Amy's address to the officers at the time of his arrest. "I don't know who to believe," Amy said. "He doesn't live with me and never has." Amy said she would have never done anything to knowingly violate her lease. "I would never have risked my safety and the well-being of my daughter," she said. Despite Amy's insistence of her innocence, she had to try to prove that Benoit did not and had not lived with her. She obtained a signed statement from Benoit saying he did not live in her home. She obtained a notarized letter from Benoit's sister claiming that Benoit had been paying his sister $100 a month to stay in her home. . Amy obtained a third letter from the Saline County Sheriffs Office, saying Benoit used a different address than Amy's when he was booked into the Saline County Jail. Stierwalt would not comment on Amy's case because of confidentiality issues. However, he said signed letters were usually not sufficient proof. The information must be verifiable, such as a lease or rent receipt or information from the police department, Stierwalt said. People He to police The police department does not T HEALTH attempt to verify addresses individuals give at the times of their arrests. Hill said. The police department makes about 5,000 arrests a year, and it would not be feasible for the officers to chock all addresses, ho said. Although Hill said most of the addresses people give are correct, he said, "People Ho to us all of the time." Police have been providing the housing authority with information on people convicted of crimes for about 1 Vi years, Hill said. However, housing authority officials arc entitled as much as anyone to research public records like arrest reports for more information, he said. Hill said the police department has no control over the addresses that suspects give them or what the housing authority does with the information it receives. Amy is anxiously waiting to see if she will be allowed to stay in her home. "It has been a very stressful time," she said. "I'm still waiting to see what will happen. This could happen to anybody. This happens all the time. People don't tell the truth about their background or where they live. What happened to innocent until proven guilty?" Stierwalt said the housing authority is not held to the same standards as courts. "This is not a court of law. We are trying to provide housing to as many people as possible with dwindling funds," Stierwalt said. "To protect those dwindling funds, we are going to run this business in a fashion that the government indicates we should." Stierwalt said he thought the policy has been effective in keeping problems and crime to a minimum among housing authority residents, but he always had an open door to accept comments or questions on housing authority policies. All tenants receive information about the housing authority policies before signing their leases, a process that takes about an hour and a half, Stierwalt said. "This is not an entitlement issue," Stierwalt said. "We are honored to be able to assist people, but we expect them to live in the community in an appropriate fashion. I don't think that we are asking too much."

The guidelines maintain that monthly breast self-examination, annual mammograms, and frequent physicals will detect recurring cancer just as soon as the battery of tests. "You don't influence survival by doing these tests, and don't detect recurrence that much earlier. Mainly because they're not that sensitive," Dr. David Schapira, co- chair of the committee appointed to write the guidelines for the American Society of Clinical Oncology, said Thursday. "If you didn't do them, you would probably save close to $1 billion a year." The ASCO guidelines do not mention the dollar savings. Schapira said the figure was based on the cost of those tests for the 140,000 women diagnosed each year with breast cancer. The guidelines are the first for women who have had breast cancer. or KIUSTA MARIE JOHNSON Dec. 24, 1995 May 3, 1996 AND FWDAY'8 OfUWVMG DAILY PICK 3 8-8-9 LOTTERY SCENE Category 4866 MARJORIE MARIE KING May 4, 1927 - May 7, 1927 Like a (lower that blooms ui .sunrise Sheds ils fragrance for a day Then at evening shuts its. ponaU 'lakes on wings and (lies away Thus out darling came and led us In the early dawn of May Thai some day we'll lie united Sheds on life its brightest ray. -Jay King r (Marjorie's grandlather and KrisiaVj gieat, great, great grandfather) Greatly loved and missed by Daddy, Mommy, (itacia, Victoria and Jacob and by Mai'joiie's sister, Doris and all out families
