Moreover, Alpha Chi will pay expenses for a student and their sponsor to attend their national conference.

Matthew 11:28: "Come unto ME, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." Also Isaiah 1 .:18: "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow, though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." This Is the WELCOME of Godl John 1:12 "But as many as received Him, to them He gave the power to BECOME the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name." Also in I John 3:1 "Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed on us, that we should be celled the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not." This is the WITNESS of Godl I John 5:4 "For whosoever, is born of God OVERCoMETH the world: and this is the victory that OVERCoMETH the world, even ou;" faith."

This is the fourth in a series of columns that I've published in THE HINTON NEWS to discuss my candidacy for Prosecuting Attorney. What is the job of prosecuting attorney? I believe the job can be outlined as follows: - a prosecutor represents the interests of the citizens in decisions as to the charging, prosecution and resolution of criminal matters. Since a prosecutor has wide discretion in such matters, the quality of the person in that job is critical to effective law enforcement; - to build respect for the prosecutor's office and use public resources efficiently, a prosecutor must be able and willing to effectively bring criminal cases to trial using the "in-house" attorneys and staff of the prosecutor's office, and without the assistance of special prosecutors; These are the kinds of issues I will actively and energetically address as your new Prosecuting Attorney. I can get the job done. I have a record of nearly 30 years of proven, effective service to Summers County and West Virginia in a variety of roles, including educator, state legislator, public administrator, Viet-Nam veteran/W.Va. National Guard officer, and attorney practicing in state and federal trial and appellate courts. I also have experience as a City Police Judge and as a hearing examiner conducting administrative hearings for state agencies. With those qualifications and experience, I am confident that I can work with the current staff, of the prosecutor's office to give Summers County a Prosecuting Attorney it can be proud of and have confidence in. With your vote and your support, I can go to work for you as Prosecuting Attorney of Summers County. - a prosecuting attorney provides legal assistance as requested toother county offices and agencies in the area of administrative law. If those offices/agencies have confidence in the prosecutor, the outside counsel fees they pay may be reduced; and, Jim McNeely Your mm-Rool=, Door-To-Door, Cndldm for Promulln!
