Mrs. Fisher was widely quoted about the plight of steelworkers who lost jobs in the 1980s.In a 1983 Baltimore Sun article, she said that when she applied for food stamps, she was told she was ineligible because her 1981 Oldsmobile was worth too much."We were used to doing pretty well.

Then it goes on and on."Mrs. Fisher was called to testify at congressional hearings. She appeared on NBC's "Today," where host Bryant Gumbel called her a local hero.She stopped working in the 1990s.

This Bot Files FOIA Requests to the FBI Whenever The New York Times Posts an Obituary - Newsweek

Monday, March 13, 2017

On the project’s Twitter account (@foiathedead), Higgins posts ephemera from the files, things like odd FBI stamps (“Do Not Destroy”) and assorted black-and-white pics of stern men.The inspiration for the project grew out of a routine. “For a long time before starting the project, I had sort of internalized the act of sending a FOIA request as a marker of an admired celebrity's death,” says Higgins. “I think it was after Lou Reed died that I thought: I should really be doing this in a more standardized way, because the really surprising FBI file is naturally going to be the one that nobody expects exists.”So: automation. The Times obituaries section, while far from perfect, provides a reliable dataset. Those covered by it are both dead and usually notable enough to have earned a file. It’s especially likely considering the average age of those covered by the section at this point in time. “A lot of the people who are showing up in the obituaries pages were active during eras of what we now consider real FBI overreach: the Red Scare, to civil rights crackdowns, to COINTELPRO and similar. In many cases, all of the above,” says Higgins. “So it's actually pretty plausible that anybody who appears in a New York Times obituary in 2017 could have a file for no good reason.”The files typically include large blank sections of redacted information, scraps from news articles about the subjects, and any other notes or documents the FBI was able to collect on the subject. The record for literary critic Daniel Aaron (who died on May 3, 2016, at 103 years old) focuses largely on his study of the role of Communism in American life. It also notes that in 1938 he “was reported to have suggested that a petition be circulated requesting the extension of a teaching contract for a teacher alleged to be a Communist Party member.” Another record, for journalist Morley Safer (who died on May 19, 2016, at 84 years old) features an all-caps letter from FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, requesting “information re: subject which can be passed to Marine Corps” because “recently he has been giving particularly unfavorable radio accounts of Marine Corps activities in South Vietnam,” including an “account of recent killings of innocent victims in several South Vietnam Villages.”If there’s an ideal type of record to uncover, it would be something like what Vollman unearthed. The author discovered, after filing an FOIA request for himself, that for a brief period, unbeknownst to him, he was suspected to be the Unabomber. “I always think, like, What if he hadn't gone through with filing his own FOIA request and getting that information out himself?” says Higgins. “That's really where this project would prove itself, is in uncovering the unknown surveillance that nobody would even think to look for.”The documents have an interesting aesthetic appeal. “The old-fashioned typewritten pages with stamps and redactions give all the documents I get a real look-and-feel that's a bonus over and above any of the information they provide.” But more than that, there’s also a meta-voyeuristic element to the project. This isn’t just about the subjects, b

Transition to UHIP state benefits system has also impacted burial payments - The Providence Journal

Monday, December 19, 2016

Medicaid to food stamps.The number of new burial-benefit applications that contributed to this backlog grew by one or two a week until late October. Since then it has grown by as many as 39 in a single week.As a starting point, Department of Administration spokeswoman Brenna McCabe stresses there are no bodies in a morgue awaiting a sign off by a state worker. "This is a reimbursement program. Payments are made after the burial/cremation services take place,'' she explained. "We do not know how much is owed to a funeral home until an application has been approved for payment."Elaborating, she said: "Of the 100 applications currently pending payment, there are 11 individuals that have yet to be buried. The State is going through the process of identifying next-of-kin for six of those 11 deceased. Family members are in the process of making funeral arrangements for the remaining individuals and those recently deceased are expected to be buried soon."Delays in burials are typically caused by one of two circumstances: the deceased has not yet been identified or the next of kin cannot be located.'' Payment delays may also result from the state awaiting basic documentation, such as a death certificate.Asked who is awaiting these payments, McCabe said: "Generally, family members submit the applications. However, we do in some circumstances receive applications from friends of the deceased, funeral homes or [the Department of Human Services]."Once the burial services have been completed and applications are approved for payment, reimbursements are sent directly to the funeral homes."She did not have readily available a list of funeral homes awaiting payment or the length of time they have been waiting, or comparative figures to any given period before the launch of the new computer system that has, in some reported cases, frustrated workers trying to enter new information and access old information.The upside: "Prior to the launch of UHIP in September...The GPA burial benefits program was mostly a paper-based system,'' she said."DHS did not have an accurate way to track th
