United Way Campaign Kicks Off LaGmn tly Charlotte Lunsford Berry her volunteering in middle school when dime from all peers for the Junior Red yearsand national awards she's still asking people help. And she's not going quit, she told a crowd of afternoon dur- the United Way "Kickoff" "There's a great opportu- this year to do great for your community - a challenge but fun," said Berry, a United volunteer and founding for the American "I think if we truly understood (all it does) we'd give even more, make it a sac- rificial gift." Berry echoed sentiments of Dr. George Sinclair, invo- cation speaker, who urged United Way supporters to "choose care, not fear." Campaign Chairman Lou Dekmar reminded the Callaway Center audience that America is the "greatest volunteer country in the world" and Berry added that - despite a sagging economy and the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks - the U.S. can show "the way" to other countries to begin volunteer efforts of their own. "Our world has changed now and many realities we thought were never possible are here," she said. "Every community in America has been affected by the attacks. But we have become a nation- al community as never before. "Within minutes after that first plane struck the World Trade Center, people were placing phone calls to" United Way offices and ask- ing how they could help." Nov,,, though, with $1 bil- lion expected to go to the United Way's Sept. 11 Fund, the help should be shifted toward local communities, United Way officials said. ,And within the next few weeks the various divisions of the United Way of West Georgia will begin various fund-raising programs, including raffles, charity drives and a golf tournament. The local United Way wants to raise $1,460,000, according to Campaign Chair Lou Dekmar. Last year's cam- paign raised $1,392,504. Already the 2001 cam- paign has received pledges of more than $900,000 - 26 percent of the goal - from the Pacesetters, eight local organizations that conduct pre-kickoff campaigns to jumpstart the funds drive. This year's Pacesetters include the Callaway Foundation, Fuller E. Callaway Foundation, Duracell, ITW, LaGrange Police Department, Publix, Troup County Sheriff's Department and Wal-Mart. The various youth pro- grams affiliated with the United Way, including the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and Literacy Volunteers of America will receive the largest portion- about 45 per- cent - of the money donated to the United Way.

I hope that I have served the majority of the people in Hogansville well. It has always been my intention to do the best for the most, as long as it was legal and moral. Many times I have stood alone on issues, especially when they involved the sale of alco- hol. I don't want to be a part of anything that gets anyone hurt or killed, nor do I understand why the sale is allowed and then you are disallowed to participate in the same society that allowed you to buy it. Akohol is just one of the drags that we face. There are more out there than we can name. Everyone except the drug dealers and users want them abolished. Unless we make a stand on these issues, then like alcohol, some day they all may be allowed into our sockty. There have been issues that I voted on that certainly didn't gain me any popty, such as utility hikes. I for one did not do it because I wanted to. It was certainly the last resort. The comment was made "IT'S EASY FOR Y'ALL TO SET UP THERE ON THAT BENCH AND RAISE THE UTILITIES ON THE OLD FOLKS AND SHUT-INS". Well let me tell you that nothing could be farther from the truth. Those choices are the hardest ones I have to deal with, but hard choices have to be made to keep the debts paid and the City operating. I have been and still am working with the State Forestry Division and the local County Extension Agent on ways and means for possibly planting the City Spray Field in pine trees, This will not make the payments or pay off the debt, but will certainly be a lot better than nothing. It is kinda like having a retirement plan, it's better to have a little when you get there than not have anything at all. The day is coming soon when you the VOTING CITIZENS have toface a decision. Let me urge all of you to get out and vote. This is one of the freedoms we still have. ** VOTE ** LARRY DORROUGH POST #1
