Building Inspector To

LAZARO ALEMAN
Senior Staff Writer

Building Inspector Wallace
Bullock may soon be working
part of the time in Madison
County.
Or more precisely, he will be
working there under a more
formal agreement.
Bullock, in fact, has been
helping run the Madison
County Building Inspections
Department for the last couple
of months, ever since the
building inspector there re-
signed.
Now, Madison County offi-
cials want to make the arrange-
ment permanent.
Two weeks ago, they ap-
proved an inter-local agree-
ment calling for the two coun-
ties to formally share Bullock's
services as a way of cutting
costs and strengthening ties.
"By sharing resources, we're
hoping to strengthen the bond

life on.the streets can lead to
more dangerous and damaging
activities such as' drug abuse,
gang affiliation prostitution
and panhandling.
SFortunately for these young
people, Covenant House ad-
ministers a program called
Rights of Passage that's de-
signed to assist motivated
young people ages 18 to 21
who need a place to stay while
they train for a job with a fu-
ture.
Celebrating its 20th anniver-,
sary this year, the Rights of
Passage program enables
young people to live at Cove-
nant House for up to 18
months while they learn a vo-
cation, earn a GED, work a
steady job or take college
courses.
When these young people
graduate from the program,
most are in a position to live
stable and productive lives:off
the streets.
In 2005, Covenant House en-
abled nearly 60,000 young
people throughout the U.S..to
take their first steps toward a


brighter future thanks to
Rights ,of Passage and the
'many other programs offered
by Covenant House a non-
profit child welfare 'agency
\lthi 15 sites in the United
States.
"For Rights of Passage to
reach this historic mark is a
-er special moment for Cove-
nant House." said Bruce J.
Henry, Executile Director of
Covenant House New York
and a Founder of.the Covenant
House Rights of Passage Pro-
gram.
"During the past 20 years,
thousands of youths at Cove-
nant House sites throughout
the U.S. and Canada have
graduated from ROP and en-
tered the' world as self-
sufficient adults. Their'
individual stories of struggle
and ultimate achievement are
the reason Covenant House
means so much to all of us."
While some young people
only went to a Covenant
House site for short-term crisis
care such as a hot meal, a bed
and new clothes others worked
with counselors and eventually
enrolled in the Rights of Pas-
sage program.
Covenant House has ROP
programs in Alaska,
California, Florida, Michigan,
New Jersey, New York, Lou-
isiana, Pennsylvania, Texas,
Toronto, Vancouver and
Washington, D.C.
Approximately 85 percent of
the funding for Covenant
House programs comes from
private 'donors. Their contin-
ued financial support is
crucial.
In addition, volunteers serve
as mentors to young people in
_the ROP program.

UN Failing In Mission


By DENNIS FOGGY
Columnist

I looked up the word "worth-
less in the dictionary and
found the following words or
expressions; "of no use or
value, unproductive, good-for-
nothing, lacking in value and
useless."
I was wondering if there is a
word or expression in the Eng-
lish language I could use that
was strong enough or capable
of accurately describing the
United Nations. In effect, all
of the definitions fit that or-
ganization quite nicely.
The United Nations was cre-
ated after World War II with
the intention of providing an
international body that would
develop positive relationships
between countries thereby pro-


moting peace and security
around the world.
The noble concept of estab-
:lishing international coopera-
tion to deal with economic, so-
cial, cultural, and humanitarian
'problems was very sound. Un-
fortunately, what we have
ended up with in 2006 is a cor-
rupt and incompetent bureau-
Scratic organization totally
incapable of accomplishing
even the most simple of tasks.
The very fact that the United
States is at war in Iraq and
shedding the blood of our val-
iant service members can be
. traced' directly back to the
United Nations.
While that prominent group
was pumping out resolution af-
ter resolution threatening se-
vere consequences for Saddam
Hussein and Iraq if he did not
comply, member of that same


Security Council were violat-
ing the UN's (their own) own
sanctions and resolutions.
With the powerful members
countries Russia, France and
Germany secretly dealing with
Saddam to violate the food for
oil sanctions, he felt confident
that he wouldn't be invaded
without their consent. Thus
with his Security Council
friends in his back pocket, he
continued to thumb his nose at
us and ultimately got
surprised.
Likewise, no wonder those
same countries were adamant
in their strength of unity
against the United States in-
vading Iraq, and allow the
world to discover their under-
handed dealings with Saddam.
Any poker game is impossible
to win with a stacked and
crooked deck.


BOOT CAMP DEATH: It's
truly amazing how. slow
authorities are moving to .get
an investigation underway into
the death of a 14 year-old at a
Bay County Boot Camp. The
case has been remoii'ted from
FDLE and. assigned to the
Duval County Sheriffs office.
HARRIS CAMPAIGN: The
Senate campaign of Republi-
Scan candidate Katherine Harris
seems to irmplode e ern couple
Sof weeks. Last week Go ernor
Jeb Bush said, as leader of the:
Republicans in Florida, he was
very concerned about the
chaos in her campaign.
S, CLERK'S .OFFICE. iMy.:
guess is we'll have at least four
to six candidates vying for the-
Clerk of Court job being va-
cated by Dale Boatr\ right.
SHERIFF'S DEPART-
MENT: The $2 million
awarded by a jury to three ped-
ple stopped by Jefferson depu-
ties back in 2001 is an embar-
rassment for our county.
LAND USE: Will decisions
by .planners and the County
Commission be a factor in
County Commission races this
year?






Now the worthless UN is ex-
pected to deal with the serious
nuclear threat coming from
oke of the host dangerous to-
talitarian oppressive regimes in
the world Iran. After months
of debates, committee hearings
and security council meetings,
all the UN is capable of doing
is sending out a worhtless re-
quest for Iran to stop.
Iran has already'said they
were not going to quit their nu-
clear research and Russia and
China have made it clear that
they will not support any sanc-
tions against Iran, their big oil
supplier.
The UN offers the venue for
third world nations to stand as
equals to the United States.
Many, if not most of these
countries are totalitarian dicta-

Wash Hands For Health


Good hand washing techniques
are essential, not only in the
wake of cleanup after natural
disasters but also in everyday
life.
Personal hygiene and meas-
ures to prevent disease spread
have been encouraged by nu-
merous health-oriented organi-
zations, including the Centers
for Disease Control.
"Good had washing tech-
niques are important for every-
one, every day. It seems so
simple, yet it is acknowledged


by experts in infectious disease
as the single most important
thing you can do to reduce the
spread of infection." Says
SCarolyn Twomey, RN, director
of clinical affairs, Regent
Medical.
As a guide, Twomey recom-
mends singing four stanzas of
the childhood song "Row,
Row, Row Your Boat." That
should take about 20 seconds,
which is how long your hand
washing should last.
Twomey points out that only


S33 percent of the general pub-
Slic washes their hands in pub-
lic rest rooms according to a
recent survey by the Bayer
Pharmaceutical Division and
Wirthlin Worldwide Research.
"The single greatest influ-
ence to wash is whether or not
others are washing. Individu-
als feel peer pressure when
they exit the lavatory area.
But when individuals don't
wash, what is the first thing
they touch on their way out?
The doorknob of the rest room.


Even if you wash, what's the
first thing you touch on your
way out? The doorknob," She
adds.
Here are some tips to avoid
transmitting or acquiring infec-
tions related to hand contami-
nation.
They're especially important
to those working in areas
where communicable diseases
are highly suspect and also im-
portant during cold and flu
season.

In my family, learning is everything.

A good education is one of the most important things
we can give our children. And we will, with the help of U.S.
Savings Bonds. The Payroll Savings Plan lets us put aside some-















thing for college every payday. Savings Bonds have been impor-
tant to our past, but they'll be even more important to our future.
That's what makes our investment so valuable.

Ask your employer or banker about saving with
U.S. Savings Bonds. For all the right reasons.

Unsurpassed as an appetite

appetite but increases the sense

Significant weight loss should

Hog Heaven Barbecue

Serves 400 Bikers


FRAN HUNT
Staff Writer

Despite the issued tornado
watches and heavy rains, the-
Sixth Annual 2006 Hog
Heaven Biker Barbecue and
Rally held Saturday, coordi-
nators fed some, 300-400.
"We got a lot of heavy rain
at about 2 p.m., and the sound
equipment had to be loaded
up.to avoid electrocution, so
there wasn't much afternoon
entertainment, but that didn't
stop us from feeding and
sharing fellowship with each
other," said Spokesman
George Potter.
"The rain did put a damper
on the event, but it couldn't
stop it from happening."
The rally was a joint effort
realized through the sponsor-
ship of both United Methodist
Churches and Regional Chris-
tian Motorcycle groups.
Potter said that it's through
the generous support of local
businesses, churches and
community that meals and en-


tertainment are free to bikers.
The meal included barbecue
chicken, baked beans, Cole
slaw, potato salad, bread, bev-
erage and desert.
Both biker and Christian
musical groups provided en-
tertainment, jamming a little
bit of everything from Blue
Grass, Country, Christian,
Gospel and Rock.

Following the event, all ex-
tra food was donated and
transported to the Children's
Light House Home. "They
were thrilled to get. it," said
Potter. He added that coordi-
nators are already looking for-
ward to next year's Hog
Heaven Biker Rally.
Churches joined in this event
are Lloyd United Methodist
Church (UMC), Sardis UMC,
Mt. Lebanon at Lament
UMC, Wacissa UMC and
Waukeenah UMC and biker
participants included Spirit
Riders Motorcycle Ministries,
Christian Motorcycle Asso-
ciation and Spirit Riders Mo-
torcycle Ministries.
