(10:31; 11:7,14,21c)800 Congress Provides River Funding Congress is providing full funding to continue com- mercial barge traffic on the Flint, Chattahoochee and Apalachicola Rivers, avert- ing attempts earlier in the year to try to shut it down, U.S. Representative Sanford Bishop said Thursday (November 1). Under an agreement reached between the U.S. House and Senate, $8 million is earmarked in the fiscal 2002 Energy and Water Appropriations Bill for U.S. Corps of Engineers dredging and other maintenance oper- ations to continue navigation on the river system serving southwest Georgia, the Second District Congressman announced. This is $6.2 million more than was proposed for this pur- pose by the Bush Administration, which earli- er wanted to shift the funds to other priorities, he point- ed out. IN ADDITION, the Congressman said, the meas- ure includes $4.9 million to begin removing sand deposits on the banks of the Apalachicola River caused by the dredging, and to trans- port the material to "envi- ronmentally acceptable ben- efici uses" in coastal areas of Florida. Florida lawmak- ers had expressed strong concern about the spillage along their river. "I pushed hard for fund- ing to keep barge traffic mov- ing, and we got it," Representative Bishop said. "Members of Congress understand it would be wasteful to abandon this eco- nomic asset, and the govern- ment investment already made in it, without adequate- ly exploring the possible environmental solutions acceptable to everyone." He said the navigable river system, served by inland ports in Bainbridge and Columbus, generates more than $40 million a year in revenue, including more than $15 million in wages. Community, state, and feder- al governments have invest- ed many millions of dollars in the barge system, he noted. EARLIER IN THE year, several members of the U.S. House and Senate called for the elimination or drastic reduction in funding for the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee, Flint Rivers Navigation Project because of environmental problems and the impact it has on water levels in recreational lakes. When this threat emerged, Representative Bishop organized meetings and on- site visits involving mem- bers of Congress; federal, state and community gov- ernment officials, and corn- RWSIR's Bernstein to Speak At Conference in Bahamas Dr. Brent Bemstein, podiatrist at the Roosevelt Warm  I fcr Rehabilitatn's Diabe Foot Center, has been selected as one of eight speakers for the prestigious Rhode Island PodiaMc's Conference in the Bahamas, Jan. 17- 20, 2002. The conference, which will deal wth the latest techniques in foot surgery, wound care and den'natotogy, will be held atthe Nassau Mamott Resort. Bemstein is in his second year at RWSIR and resides in NewP, an. He will speak to an audi- ence of podiatnc surgeons from allovertbe wodd.

An agreement was subse- quently reached, and it was included in the Energy and Water Appropriations Bill approved by a House and Senate conference commit- tee and passed in the House of Representatives Thursday (November 1). Members of the confer- ence committee pointed out that the states of Georgia, Florida and Alabama, which have been engaged in water allocation negotiations since 1997, might be close to reach- ing an agreement on new allo- cation formulas for water storage in federal reservoirs on the river system. Representative Bishop said he remained optimistic that the issue of recreational water levels could be resolved without disruption of barge traffic. U00omi00.

Congregations and clergy of various faiths will unite for this special weekend that includes the distribution of informational and education- al packets by the Georgia Coalition on Donation to reli- gious denomination leaders across the state. Special pro- gram elements also are included for African- American congregations and Jewish synagogues. The Jewish community will cele- brate with Share Your Life Shabbat. The Georgia Coalition is asking clergy members and congregations to get involved in Share Your Life Weekend in various ways including: • Featuring organ and tis- sue donation as part of a ser- mon to members the week- end of Nov. 9-11. • Including an announce- ment in the bulletin or newsletter about donation. • Arranging for congre- gation mgmbcrs who are donor families, transplant recipients or health-care providers to share a brief message with the congrega- tion. • Providing uniform donor cards and information to members. • Including information about donation on outdoor signage or marquee. • Encouraging adult and youth education leaders to start a discussion on organ and tissue donation. "It is our hope that faith leaders will use Share Your Life Weekend as an opportu- nity to discuss their faiths' support of donation and encourage their congrega- tions to discuss organ, tissue and eye donation with their families," said Jeff AI-Mashat, chairperson of the Georgia Coalition on Donation. %Ve know that aside from medical professionals, most people seek advice about donation from their clergy members. This weekend sets aside a spe- cial time for clergy and con- gregations to talk about dona- tion." A CNN/USA Today Gallup poll found that 93 per- cent of people in the United States are affiliated with a religious institution, and 43 percent attend a religious meeting almost every week. However, another Gallup poll shows that fewer than 10 per- cent of people in the United States know their religion has doctrines regarding organ and tissue donation. "Although these beliefs differ between denomina- tions, the underlying theme is the same: organ and tissue donation represents one of the highest forms of loving, giving and caring," said A1 Mashat. "And those are the principles upon which all reli- gions are based." Currently, nearly 80,000 people -1,200 in Georgia - are on the national waiting list for organ transplants. Thousands more need tissue or corneal transplants to dra- matically improve their qual- ity of life or even restore sight. Tragically, nearly 6,000 people die each year while waiting for an organ trans- plant because demand con- tinues to exceed supply. "Clergy are in a unique position to be a part of the miracle of transplantation by encouraging congregations to consider organ and tissue donation," said AI-Mashat. "We hope that during Share Your Life Weekend leaders will facilitate the discussion with their memlers and that in turn families will share their feelings about donation and sign donor cards togeth- er." The Georgia Coalition on Donation is one of 50 non- profit local coalitions dedi- cated to educating the public about organ and tissue dona- tion, correcting misconcep- tions and creating a greater willingness to donate life.
