Don't Let Me Starve
I've watched with a knot in my stomach, a lump in my throat
and a pain in my heart this week as Terri Schiavo's life has begun
ebbing away. She's been denied the basic necessities of life food
and water which would help her subsist.
It may make some of my readers angry, but I'm against al-
lowing her to die by letting her starve to death. Think about how
you, or I, would feel if it were one of our loved ones going through
what Terri is going through. I would be fighting just as hard for
their lives as the Schindlers are fighting to save Terri's life.
Terri was not hooked on a ventilator that helped her breathe.
She can do that on her own. Her husband lives with another
woman, whom he said he wanted to marry about seven years ago,
when all the trouble began over Terri living off a feeding tube. She
had collapsed several years before and had the feeding tube in-
serted. Nothing was said until her husband wanted the feeding
tube removed so he could get married.
Another question I have is, "Why didn't he just try to divorce
her?" My guess is that he wants the $400,000 worth of life insur-
ance that he has on her.
I don't have a living will, but I'm going to fill one out. Peo-
ple can say that Terri Schiavo said what she wanted done if she
ever got into the state she's in now. I think that since she was a
young woman in her twenties when it happened, she actually had-
n't given a thought to it, nor did she say anything about it.
If I'm hooked up to a ventilator should I get in a state like Ter-
ri Schiavo, I don't care if anyone pulls the plug. If I'm being kept
alive by a feeding tube, however, I ask that nro one let me starve to
I believe that murderers and sexual predators get better treat-
ment that SchLi'.,o is getting. If you have to murder her, stick a
needle in her and give her a lethal injection. It's only humane, if
you have to kill her.

Resurrection Impacts Life
At Every Turn
It's a slim volume, tattered and dog-eared, a pale tan linen,
a book few would notice among other, more colorful offer-
ings. Yet I resurrect it at least twice eact year, and often more
What could such a battered book hold that would merit its
Ah! There you would find incredible, wonderful poetry to
move your soul. The book is God's Trombones, a collection of
sermons in Verse by James Weldon Johnson. During Black
History Month, I read "Let My People Go" to my classes.
Then, just prior to Easter, I read "The Crucifixion."
Those are the public resurrections. On many occasions I
read sections of the book privately. A birthday gift to me in
1965, that book never stays buried for long.
Every person has some item he resurrects from time to
time. The baby pulls out the stuffed duck from a pile of toys.
From her closet floor, a teenage girl retrieves that candy-striped
tee shirt she hasn't worn for months. Dad digs out that Tender-
loin Espanolrecipe he hasn't used since July 4.
You understand. You have something buried that you res-
urrect when you feel the need.
Even without, these minor events, resurrection would still
be part of our lives. From distant times, our lore and literature
have given us beings brought back to life. Lomhies, Vampires.
even Biblical characters, offer the phenomenon of earth life
after death. .
But notice one important aspect of all these resurrections.
In every case, an outside force effects the transformation. The
newly alive does not rise through his own effort or desire,
Not so with the Resurrection that w e ob erse on 'Sunday.
In that case 2,000 years ago, the dead body in the closed cave
became the Living Christ not because someone dragged Him
out and pumped life into Him. Oh, no. Rather, the new life had
its source in the heart of the dead Christ rose by His own pow-
er and at His own will.
Does this not lead us to a basic step toward our own resur-
rection? Our choice for the keeper of our lives should be the
One who generates life. If He is in our hearts, then we will
wake to eternal life.
Repeatedly (as %\ ith my book), we experience resurrections
in our lives. However, the one Resurrection that impacts all our
lives started in the heart of God.

Part Three of Three
How Do We Fix It?
.y Joe Boyles
This is part 3 of an editor-
al series on Social Security
md examines how the system
night be modernized to meet
he needs of 21st Century
Probably the best way to
look at Social Security reform
is to address the problems one-
by-one. Any comprehensive
solution will be a dynamic
problem in that many different
factors come into play. While Joe Boyles
the first problem to be resolved is solvency, the formula for a
solvent Social Security system is highly dependent on the types
.of reforms that are adopted. Do not confuse solvency with re-
form; solvency addresses the fiscal shortcomings of the system
to make it financially sound while reform, on the other hand, ad-
dresses the inherent weaknesses of the current system.
The first problem to confront is the original design of Social
Security as a pay-as-you-go system. As we move toward a 2:1
ratio of workers to beneficiaries, we must move away from the
original design to build a sustainable system. The idea that in
only 25 years there will be only two people working to support
each retiree, in addition to their own families, is nothing short of
ridiculous. No one in their right mind would advocate such a,
tremendous burden on the American workforce, let alone the,
drag on our economy.
Anothermajor malfunction with Social Security is owner-
ship. Under the current system, despite having, paid tens of
thousands of dollars over decades, no one owns any part of their
contribution. If the lp shou d die before reaching retirement age,-
their contribution is lost, with the possible exception of ha% ing2
an eligible survivor. Any remaining funds that have not been
drawn cannot be transferred to heirs because there is no rioh t Iof
ownership. Any reform to Social Securit to make it a 21st Cen-
tury model must address the issue of ownership.
Personal ownership of one's Social Security also indirectlI
addressestwo problems with the current system. First, person-
al ownership would help each individual tailor their retirement
program for changes in their family structure such as divorce,
fewer children, working spouse, etc. Second, personal owner-
ship would put.power in the h-inds of the individual andtake it
away trom politicians w.ho w fe ote, tcmpltd i misuse LICua
power. The question I would pose to every, American' \ho pays
FICA taxes is this: who do you trust more to manage your mon-
ey yourself or some politician?
Another chromec problem that besets Social Security in its
present configuration, is low rate of return. Ultra-conservative
Treasury Bills average only'1.8 percent grow% th. often below the
rate of inflation. In contrast, almost every tr pe of private in-
vestment means easily beats .that of T Bills. Historically, stocks
have averaged 9 percent growth over the past 80 years, five.
times the rate of return of Social Security. A worker investing
the retirement portion of his paycheck using a proven invest-
ment technique known as dollar cost averaging can ahlI a s count
on exceeding the rate of return' that Social Secunti generates.
But even more fundamentally, would you rather invest your So-
cial Security contributions in the American economic or in go\-
So let's summarize the things that should be fixed \%ith So-
cial Security reform. The pay -as-you-go ssten.; flawed from
the start, has to be replaced. Secondly, ow nership must be ad-
dressed paying into a retirement system for so long must cre-.
ate personal ownership. Third. %we have no hope of resold ing
solvency without improving the rate of return.
Each of these problems can and should be addressed, to-
gether with insolvency, to transform Social Security from a De-
pression-era model to a modern 21st CenturN s- stemn. For peo-
ple who are currently enrolled in Social Security and for those
soon to be enrolled, we must guarantee the current rate of bene-
fits. For our younger \v workers how\ ever. we can de\ elop a better
model that will prove both less burdensome and more reward-
We cannot ignore nor should \we be afraid of transition costs,
to an updated. 21st Century Social Seeurity system. *Even if we
apply a 'band-aid' to the current system. the cost to fix the loom--
ing train-wreck is huge. And each two-year election cycle that
we put off addressing the problem costs an additional $320 bil-
lion to correct the shortfall. Kicking the proverbial can down the
road is not only political.cowardice but fiscally irresponsible.
Keep this foremost in your mind when discussing either fix-
ing or reforming Sopial Security: it was created during the De-
pression some 70 years ago. It was flawed from the start. We
cannot nor should we do. away with Social Securit.y, but we
should hate the courage and resolution to correct it for the cur-
rent world we live in apd the future we expect. Today. Social
Security is a 70-year-;old jalopy, limping along and leaking oil.
A "tune up' \\ill not make it competitive in the fast-paced world
of the 21st Century. The answ er is not to raise taxes or cut ben-
efits we can do better.
What is necessary to accomplish true Social Security reform
is to move a. ay from partisanship. Rather than our elected de-
cision makers deciding to do what is in the best interests of their
party, wve need to be served by statesmen thalt are more con-
cerned with doing what is right for the American citizen.
In the end, we need more political decision makers \\ ho un-
derstand the underlying formula for success in business: if you
do what is right for the customer, you will be rewarded by more
business. In this case, the 'customer' is the American citizen -
workers who are paying FICA taxes every paycheck and retirees
who are beneficiaries of Social Security. It is unfortunate that
politicians look at this issue, like so many others, from the stand-
point of political advantage.

We call it Easter. The word appears only once in the Bible and
it is not referring to the event we celebrate this Sunday. A better ti-
tle for this Sunday would be "Resurrection Day." It is one of my
most favorite days of the year.
He is alive.
And everything is different because of it.
Education is great. But no one ever educated someone to walk
out of a tomb. Medical science is wonderful. But it has limits. Even
the best doctors and nurses can only keep us alive for a few years.
Death seems so final. We talk about final expenses and final illness
and final wishes. Philosophies are often nice, but no one ever
thought his way out of a grave. Diplomacy is often impressive. No
one ever agreed to rise from the dead. Military power is sometimes
awesome. But no army or navy ever freed a dead person. And con-
gresses and parliaments don't have the power to conquer death.
Did it really happen? The evidence is overwhelming. And the
wild theories giving other choices are really weak alternatives.
Wrong tomb? The authorities could go the right one and produce
the body. Animals stole the body? Sure, a few animals got together
and rolled away a two-ton stone and overpowered the guards. Try
again. The followers stole it? Hardly. They had forsaken Him in a
cowardly way. And if they stole it, they would not have been will-
-ing to die for a hoax.
Great legal and historical scholars have studied the facts and
decided Christ did indeed rise. Lawyer Frank Morison set out to re-
fute the evidence and ended up writing a book.called, Who Moved
the Stone?, supporting the resurrection. Simon Greenleaf of Har-
vard Law School concluded that the resurrection was one of the
best-supported events in history, according to the laws of legal evi-
dence administered in courts of justice.

Easter Eggs 101.
Easter is this weekend and that means many households will be
dyeing egg for decoration and egg hunts. Each time you handle an
egg, it increases the chances of contact with bacteria. Following
food safer guidelines will keep eggs from ruining your holiday cel-
'If .ou are having an Easter egg hunt.' it is best to use plastic
eggs. There are many food safety issues %with using real eggs. They
should not be out of the refrigerator for longer than two hours, and
if you hide them outside there is the issue of warmer temperatures
and the problem of avoiding areas where they may come into con-
tact with pet. wild life, insects and lawn chemicals. So you can see
why, I'm not even going there. '
Plastic eggs are colorful, easy to hide and you can hide surpris-
es inside each egg. They don't present a food safety issues and when
the hunt is oxer. you can go inside and enjoy eating the refrigerated
hard cooked eggs you decorated.
When handling eggs. you should thoroughly wash your hands
each step of the way. Whether you are cooking, cooling or dyeing
eggs -- wash your hands. If you won't be colonng your eggs right
after cooking them. store them in their original carton in the refrig-
erator. Inspect eggs for cracks before and after coloring. Allcracked
eggs need to be thrown away.
If you use cooked eggs for a centerpiece or other decoration.
and know they will be at room temperature for a day or two. discard
them after use.
According to the Egg Board, there is a correct way to prepare
hard cooked eggs, and it is not boiling. If your eggs have a green
ring around the yolk. you have cooked them too long. Follow these
1. Place eggs in a single layer in a saucepan. Add enough tap
water to come at least 1 inch above the eggs.
2. Cover. Quickly bring the water to a boil and turn off the heat.
3. If necessary, remove the pan from the burner to prevent fur-
ther boiling. For hard-cooked eggs. let eggs stand covered in the hot
water for 15 minutes for large, 12 minutes for medium and 18 min-
utes for extra large.
4. Immediately run cold water over eggs or place them in ice
water until completely cooled.
5. To remove the shell. crack it by tapping gently all over.
6. Roll the egg between your hands to loosen the shell.

You can build small fires in it,

cook vegetables, bread, or
pitas," said Williams.
All the furniture in the

On Saturday, April 2nd, all roads will be leading to Lee -
some of us still remember the traffic jam we had for our first one
in '88. Under the caution light at U.S. 90 and C.R. 255, traffic
was backed up turning north to the town hall. Poke McHenry,
well-known columnist, was a special guest. Man, Shriners came,
for the continental breakfast and were disappointed that it was-
n't a hearty southern meal continental is definitely not south-
That breakfast has been replaced with a southern pancake
and sausage meal served by the Lee Methodist Church. Don't
miss it. But if you do, the Lee Senior Citizens will gladly, serve
you coffee and doughnuts from their booth on the festival
grounds. Be sure to see all the lovely things they have to offer.
The Seniors Club has been busily preparing for their big
fundraiser of the year their booth will be filled with quilts, lap
robes, cookies, coffee and cold drinks. They will also have one
quilt for raffle and one for auction. Be sure to stop by any
money you spend there-will return to the county in the form of
lap robes. and other items for nursing homes and blankets for
children going into adoptive homes.
You will enjoy ihe parade everyone loves a parade. The
kids will squeal with delight as Coo Coo the Clow n rolls by in
his clown car. Coo Coo will also put on shows during the day
at the McMullen Homestead. We have lots of great entertain-
ment planned for you. a variety of mouth-\\ watering food and a
plethora of arts and crafts and special exhibits. .The Creative

Over and over in our Sun-

perfect was used. As this Holy
Week is passing and services
are being held, and messages
are preached about Jesus, the
Prefect One who left the per-
fect place in glory to be born
the perfect baby to accomplish
the perfect work of the Father
which was to redeem every
imperfect sinner which was
His Purpose for His Life! And
how we do thank Him and
pray as He did that all the
world would come to know
Him and He was crucified and
Jesus is the Perfect Lamb
and in God prepared the per-
fect place of birth for His
Lamb the stable, the birth-
place of most sacrifices (a new
thought to me) and brought to

"CREATED FOR PURPOSE"
"Many are the plans in a
man's heart, but it is the
LORD's purpose that pre-
vails." Proverbs 19:20-22
For three days last week, I
had the opportunity to attend
an Intercessory Prayer Confer-
ence in Tallahassee. It was
truly time well-spent, and aYre-
freshing spiritual breeze for
my mind, body, and spirit.
During the course of the con-
ference, we were reminded in-
dividually and collectively
that we are each created by
God for divine purpose. Pur-
pose, we were reminded is de-
fined as God's 'initial intent'
for the person He created.
The Word of God tells us
that even before the earth was
formed, each of us was in the
mind of God. The Word fur-
ther says that we were each
given talents and gifts that
were given to us to accom-
plish the purpose (initial in-
tent) for which we were creat-
ed. None of us were born by
chance and none of us are ac-
cidents. God is a God of di-
vine order and He never creat-
ed anybody or anything with-
out first equipping it with all.
that is needed to be whole.
Each of us is equipped to per-
form that for which we were
created. So, how do we identi-
fy the purpose (initial intent)
for which we were created?
When do we know that we are
walking in the purpose for
which we were created?
When we purchase items
that we are not familiar with,
we typically go to the manu-
facturer's guide or handbook.
That same principle applies
when there are things we want
or need to know about our-
selves, a phenomenal creation
made in the likeness and im-
age of God himself. We
should consult the manufac-
turer's guide (the Word of
God). Therein are the answers
to all of our questions for
every facet of our lives. There
is not a 'section' in the Word
identified as 'God's Purpose
For My Life', but if we study
the Word, digest it, and allow
it to come alive in us, we can
begin to accomplish all things
aligned with God's purpose
.(initial intent) for our lives.
We were designed and di-
vinely created by God so that
He could receive the glory out
of our lives. When He does
not receive glory out of how
we live, walk, talk, and wor-
.ship .......we are certainly not
walking 'in purpose'. We cer-
tainly cannot do things to be
well-spoken of by man and
think that God is receiving the
glory. The Word says that
God will not share His glory.
All that we do and all that we
strive to do or become should
be because we have such an
intense love for God that we
want to please Him, and want
for Him to get ALL THE
GLORY from our lives. That
is walking in purpose!! Our
daily desire should be that self
(the flesh) should die daily,
because the Word says that no
man can please God in the
flesh. FLESH DIE so; that I
may daily offer my body a liv-
ing, holy, acceptable sacrifice
to God....each day this should
be our heart's desire in prayer.
This allows us to walk in pur-
If we choose to walk in a
path that is not the path of pur-
pose (initial intent) that is de-
signed by God for our lives,
we will not experience the
fullness of all that God has for
us. He loves to bless us; and
the Word tells us that it gives
Him great pleasure to bless us,
perfect those things that relate
to us, and there will even be
times ,when He will overtake
us with blessings. Let us each
seek to please Him ... walk in
purpose and allow the win-
dows of Heaven to be open
Life without defined and
Godly purpose is meaningless
and unfulfilled. Our divine
purpose can only be realized
through our relationship with
the Father. Our relationship
with Him can only be estab-
lished by spending time with
Him..:.talking, listening, pray-
ing, and sharing with the Fa-
ther. This time allows us to
GET TO KNOW HIM in a
very personal and intimate
way. Knowing Him gives us
the blessed assurance of who
He is, whose we are, and what
He desires for our lives.
Walking in purpose can only
be accomplished when we are
walking with God and allow-
ing Him to lead. Allow Him
to lead ....follow His lead. Liv-
ing and walking in His pur-
pose will lead each of us into
the divine purpose and destiny
for which we were created.

E TOWN OF LEE
GET uITS NAME
By Mike Moore
Greene Publishing, Inc.
lace names do not just happen. No early settlers discovered rivers, mountains,
J or other features w ith names already) supplied. That is. unless the settlers found
out that Natie Americans had placed a name on the ri er or lake or area. The\
often just decided to keep it. They frequently used the Indian name e\en though
it might hae been difficult to pronounce or curious-sounding. \Ve see many\ of these in
Florida The map wkas blank and those \Mho came first \%ere the ones w\ho named the
rivers, mountains, and lakes. It is also true ith tons and cities. Those w ho liked there
attached the names. Often the names stuck, but sometimes the names were changed.
In Madison Count\. the To wn of Lee boasts that it is "Little But Proud." The 20011
census reported that Lee had 352 residents. B 2005)(. the population has gro\ wn to about
390. Lee holds the distinction as the smallest incorporated tow n in Florida.
Lee has been named "Lee" as Iong as its current residents can remember.
When the Cil il War. or War Between the States. ended in 1865. Confederate Gen-
eral Robert E. Lee \as unsure of lthai he would d do or w hat his future would hold. He
\%as offered the presidency of Washington College in Lexington. Virginia. and accept-
ed the position. The college is know n today as Washington and Lee in honor of George
Washington and General Lee
Community\ leaders in a small North Florida settlement named their tow n. Lee. in
the general's honor. Later, General Lee got word that a Florida to\n had been named
after him. The old gentleman w\as deeply mo\ed and made a visit to the tow\ii.
The commander of the Arms of Northern Virginia. and later of all Confederate
armies, had aged greatlI during the \\ar -\cars. He died in 1870.
Today. the cita limits of Lee cover a little more than one square mile The well-kept
community has several historic locations. Lee Methodist Church \ as built in 1900. Oth-
er historic buildings are City Hall. the library. Blanton House. and the Old Ha\en Home.
Lee is a quiet tow n set in a rural count\. Folks %% ho live there enjoy the place A. his-
tory of the to\w n. compiled set eral ears ago, show s that man\ of the earl \ residents still
ha\e descendants living there.
Many honors came to Robert E. Lee in his later life and after his death. Indi' idual

Pictured .Above Confederate General Robert E. Lee is shown in
full uniform. It is one of the war's best-known photographs. Lee
was %er) pleased when lie heard that citizens had named a town in
Pictured Left This is the oldest building in Lee. It now serves as the
Lee Librari and was the Kinsey Barber shop in )ears past.
citizens raised funds for a large statue of Lee and his horse, Traveler, which
was placed on Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia, the former Confed-
erate capital. Over 100,000 people attended the dedication and unveiling of
the statue in the late 1800s. For many years, former Rebel soldiers saluted the
monument as they passed by.
The only word on the statue is "Lee."
HISTORY TIDBIT: An unusual fact about names in the American Civil
War shows that Confederate and Union armies frequently had different names
for the same battle. Confederates usually named the battle after a nearby town
while the Yankees named the same conflict after a river or stream. -
To the Confederates it was Sharpsburg, to the North it was Antietam.
Southerner.- referred to First and Second Manassas, while Union folks called
the battles First and Second Bull Run. The South talked about Murfreesboro
and the North spoke of Stone's River.,
Many battles have two names and it has confused historians for over 100
years. There is Shiloh or Pittsburg Landing, Seven Pines or Fair Oaks, Brice's
Crosroads, or Gunt.i n, Olustee or Qcean Pond, Pea Ridge or Elkhorn Tav-
And of course, the two sides could not agree on a name for the war. There
are at least 20 different names for the conflict of 1861-1865.

Jada Williams talks to the Excel students on the importance of presentation, and "howl
you feel inside" determines how you interact with people. (Greene Publishing Inc. Photo by
Bill McCrea, March 16, 2005)
"The way to present your-
self is not so much in how you
react to what's on the outside,
but how you feel inside, and
how it sho%% s in the way you
interact \ ith people," said ed-
ucator Jada Williams who
teaches at the Excel school.
One of the highlights of
the ceremony, was the recita-
tion of Martin Luther King's "I
Have a Dream" speech that
\\as read by 8th grader Slater
Rashanda Denson graced
the crowd with her golden
voice. She belted out a few
gospel songs while her fingers

It might not be a good idea to give
$ money to your local church!
The group might be against God!
"Doing more harm than good" Rev. 3:16
Jesus said, "If Nou are not with me, you are
against Me; and he who does not gather with me
scatters." (Matthei\ 12:30) If you asked the group
onu give $ money to for everyone to name by name
the people they gathered for Christ in the last 5
years, how many could remember even one person?
If only a small minority, the group is scattering.
iAgainst Godi Do you think it is good to give $
money to a group against God?
What are you, a gatherer or scatterer? If Jesus
were to have a talk with you as a Christian. He
would talk to you about reaching the lost! If you are
not hearing the message. you don't know Him. If
Nyou are not gathering. you don't trust Him which is
a combination for a ticket to Hell. -
Please discuss this with \our pastor and church

Nigerian Christians Killed
by Muslim Militants
Muslim militants recently attacked a Christian community,
killing 36 people and displacing about 3,000 others. The attack
!occurred last month in Demsa village, located in the African na-
tion's northern region of Adamawa State, Compass Direct re-
The surviving Christians have taken refuge in Mayolope
village in the neighboring state
of Taraba. While visiting the
displaced Christians, the Rev.
Jolly Nyame, governor of the
state of Taraba, expressed sad-
ness over the attacks and said
the country could progress only
through peaceful coexistence.
"No community can move
forward while crisis takes the
center stage. It is only peace
that can usher in development in the country," he told the
refugees. "Only tolerance and forgiveness can bring about
peaceful co-existence among people of different religious back-
Nyame added that the Nigerian government needs to check
the activities of Muslim militants, who have provoked crises in
different parts of the country.
The attack on Demsa village by Muslim militants is the sec-
ond in Adamawa State. Numan, also in Adamawa, has been un-
der siege since a religious crisis erupted there two years ago
over the killing of pastor Esther Ethan Jinkai. The situation
worsened in January when another Christian woman was killed
by soldiers deployed to keep peace, Compass reported.
According to the 2005 annual report by Open Doors Inter-
national, Nigeria is ranked 25th among the world's worst perse-
cutor of Christians.
Christians Denied Permit for
National Day of Prayer Event
For the past ten years, Christians in Troy, Michigan, have
joined hundreds of thousands of believers nationwide in Na-
tional Day of Prayer observances on the first Thursday in May.
But this year, Troy city officials refused to.issue a permit for the
event. Why? According to local coordinator Lori Wagner, this
year's planned meeting was challenged by the Jewish, Muslim,
and Indian community.
"We're not being divisive, we're not being exclusionary,"
Wagner says. "The whole focus [according to those opposing
the event] is that [the event is] ---- -------.
about diversity but diversity
does not amalgamate our faith. -- : ..:--
It does not force us to be one in
our belief on anm subject. but it
allows us the freedom to func-
ti p \ NitJin.qpu ,upprpinite. wib,-, : ,
Wagner says she has con-
tacted the Michigan-bused .. -
Thomas More Law Center and
may take legal action against the city. "[City officials'] basis for
denying this was that the city has not established the area in
front of city hall as a public forum so therefore they can con-
trol who meets there," she explains.
But according to Wagner, the city attorney has informed her
group it could argue that even though the area has not officially
been designated a public forum, it is a public forum. "It has been
used by different groups that aren't city groups for functions
ever since it's been there," she says.
Fifty-three churches are trying to sponsor the Troy event on
May 5. The theme for this year's national observance is "God
Shed His Grace on Thee." The chairman for National Day of
Prayer is Shirley Dobson, wife of Focus on the Family founder
Representative Says State Must
Regulate Abortion Clinic Safety
A Kansas lawmaker is proposing a bill to hold abortion clin-
ics to a required level of sanitation in order to operate.
State Representative Peggy Long-Mast says Planned Par-
enthood released quality standards in 1999, and it is from those
standards that House Bill 20-53 takes its wording. The legisla-
tion states that abortion clinics must have adequate lighting,
sterilized instruments, and doors wide enough to let a gurney
pass through, among other requirements.
Unfortunately, Long-Mast says the bill has been proven
necessary, especially after some recent and disturbing discover-
ies by police in her state upon entering a number of abortion
providers' facilities. "The clin-
ics in Kansas looked more like
back-alley abortion clinics,"
"As a matter of fact," the
roach-infested place where State Representative reveals,

ally had 'Northrup Construc-all.
Long-Mast says Plannedtion' [written] on the door, and
when detectives wen toutin in Sep-
tember of 2003, they found a
roach-infested place where there was carpeting on the surgical-
floor." And in the same clinic, she adds, they found medications
that were not labeled and an entire staff that had no medical ex-
pertise at all.
Long-Mast says Planned Parenthood talks about legalized
abortion creating greater safety for women, often touting the re-
sult of Roe v. Wade as having contributed toward an America in
which abortion is safe, legal, and rare. But sadly, she asserts, al-
though aborn ition is now legal in the U.S, it is still not safe and
definitely not rare.
about the safety of women, the Kansas lawmaker observes that
many continue to resist external regulation of safety standards.
She says it is amazing how fiercely pro-abortionists are fighting
to keep from having minimum safety requirements imposed on
abortion facilities, especially after recent serious incidents in-
volving an infamous Kansas abortionist.
"George Tiller, who's well known throughout the nation for
his late-term abortions has had six ambulance calls to his abor-
tion clinic in the last six months, and there is one confirmed
death," Long-Mast points out. And now, she says victims of his
dangerous operation are coming forward, ready to talk.
"This is the first year," the State Representative says, "that
I've ever had individuals come to me who have actually suf-
fered from botched abortions and are willing to come forward
now and speak, letting the public know that [abortion] is not
Rep. Peggy Long-Mast is hopeful that House Bill 20-53
will pass on Friday (March 18) and proceed to the Senate. She
is urging Kansas citizens who care about women's health and,
safety to call their state lawmakers and ask them to support this
important bill. .
Social Security Will
Go Broke in 2041
The trust fund for Social Security will go broke in 2041 Ai
year earlier thapreviousl) esrimated-the trustees reported this
week. Trustees also said that Medicare, the giant health care,
program for the elderly and disabled, faces insolvency in 2020.
The new projections made in the trustees annual report were
certain to be cited by both sides in the massive battle to overhaul
Social Security, which President Bush has made the top domes-
tic priority of his second term.
The go-broke date for Medicare was delayed by one year,
compared to the estimate that
trustees gave a year ago.
The insolvency dates repre-
sent when both trust funds will
have exhausted the government"
bonds that have been building
up to take care of the pending
retirement of 78 million baby
Equally important are when
benefits paid to the elderly start
exceeding the payroll taxes des-
ignated to support the two pro-
grams. That's when the govern- -
ment will have to increase its
borrowing on financial markets,
raise taxes or divert money from
other government programs to C o
sustain Medicare and Social Se-
curity at current levels. Carnival
For Medicare, the threshold
when benefits exceed program
income occurred last year. For
Social Security, that threshold
will be crossed in 2017, one year
earlier than the 2018 date pro-
jected in last year's report.
The administration cited that
change as a sign of the urgency
to act to deal with Social Secun-
ty's funding woes.
"The reason we are dealing
with Social Security no\ is that

Won't Meet Recruiting Goals
The Army expects to miss its recruiting goals again this
month and next, Army Secretary Francis J. Harvey 'said this
week, and it is developing a new sales pitch that appeals to the
patriotism of parents who have been reluctant to steer their chil-
dren toward the Army.
"There is a forecast that we will not meet the monthly goal"
for March and April, Harvey said at his first Pentagon news con-
ference since becoming the'Army's top civilian official last No-
In February the Army missed its monthly recruiting goal by
27 percent. That was the first time it had fallen short for any
month since May 2000, and it underscored the difficulty the
Army faces in signing up young men and women during time of
Harvey said he was not particularly concerned about
monthly results, so long as the Army reaches its full-year target
of enlisting 80,000 people. It has not missed its full-year goal
"I'm clearly not going to give up," Harvey said. "At this
stage we still have six months to go" before the recruiting year
ends Sept. 30. "I've challenged our'human resource people to
get as innovative as they can. And even as we speak we've got
a number of new ideas."
One of those is designed to persuade more parents to steer
their children to the Army. "We're going to appeal to patrio-
tism," he said.
