STAFFING 20 Baker Rd., Suite 10 Newnan, Ga 770-252-2202 Fax Resumes 770-252-2421 www.chasestaffing.com to celebrate "Red ribbon Week." The first Red Ribbon Campaign was organized in 1986 by a grassroots organi- zation of parents concerned about the destruction caused by alcohol and drug abuse. The red ribbon was adopted as a symbol of the movement in honor of Enrique Camarena, an agent with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration who was kid- napped, tortured and killed while investigating drug traf- fickers. Drug addiction is a terri- ble thing. It robs people of their happiness, their liveli- hood, their will to live. It tears apart families, destabilizes communities and places a tremendous burden on soci- ety as a whole. Meriwether County, America, and the world, should never relax their vigilance against drug addiction. The United States is sum- moning the world to a no- holds-barred fight against terrorism and drug traffick- ing. By the recent "Attack on America" it has become increasingly clear that the ongoing prohibition of nar- cotics has not only failed to stem the flow of drugs into our country but is now plac- ing the life of every single U.S. citizen in jeopardy. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, international terror- ism is no longer funded prin- cipaUy by rogue states seek- ing to further political aims. Rather, most organizations now operate independently from any one nation and are held together by fundamen- tal religious or ideological beliefs, with their primary support coming from inter- national narcotics trafficking and other illegal operations. One prime example is the organization headed by Osama bin laden, believed to be responsible for the recent School System Prepares For Educaiton Week American Education Week is November 11-17 and the Troup County School System is planning activities throughout the week to cele- brate the history of Southwest LaGrange School and Berta Weathersbee School.

"Southwest LaGrange School has a rich heritage," said Jerrie Holmes, Public Relations Coordinator for the Troup County School System. "We want the students cur- rently enrolled in Berta Weathersbee and their par- ents to learn about the histo- ry of their school." The school system wants everyone who has had a con- nection with these schools to help celebrate a proud past and a bright future. Please contact Jerrie Holmes at 812- 7900 to share copies of pho- tos, old textbooks, mementos and stories. September 11 attack on America. Bin Laden is based in Afghanistan, the world's leading-R(oducer of poppy, the basic irlgredient in hero- ill. The knee-jerk reaction to his most recent attack has been to put more police on the streets, more security, mandate stiffer sentences for traffickers, increase inter- diction efforts and just plain old stay inside and bury your head till it goes away. Pathways Center and local law enforcement are encouraging each and every citizen in Meriwether County to do his/her part in helping to eradicate drug traffick- ing/abuse and its terrorism against us, our children, fam- ilies, and friends. If we fail to act, we need not look very far for the source behind the next major terrorist attack. We merely have to go to our own mirrors and take a long hard look.

Campaign Signs Spoil Town's DEAR EDITOR: issue? Do the candidates care if Like most Hogansville residents, I am thrilled at all the work that has gone into putting the Hummingbird Festival together. The City of HogansviUe is tny a beautiful city and it's time for the city to shine. Nonetheless, I have to bring to the attention of the festival committee as well as all the residents the unsightly clutter of campaign signs placed throughout the city. I realize the elec- tion is very important but do they have to clutter up our corners with these ugly signs? How many signs can be on one intersection? Are there any city ordinances on this unsightly at a time when visitors guests are expected into the city? I believe my vote would go to candidates who choose to keep the of HogansviUe clean and beautiful. Thanks for letting me get this my chest. D.K.
