Investments like today's are not only sound, they leverage the dickens out of other funding. Rural Development has invested $51 million in water and sewer and leveraged another $51 million from that. ARC, in just four years invested some $350 million to leverage $4.3 Billion additional public and private dollars. That, as they say, just isn't chicken feed. We can't stop the progress we have made when we have more work to do. We have more water extensions to dig and wastewater lines to run. J In this world economy, now is not the time to give up on what we have worked so hard to build. With China and India investing in their countries' infrastructures, we must maintain America's competitive edge. Nor should we leave unfinished the job of extending water service throughout the county. In fact, Rural Development has invested approximately $29 million in loans and grants for water and wastewater projects across Mingo County. When we grow our economy with projects like Marrowbone and Jennies Cre~ek, we create jobs, shrink the deficit and help balance the budget. And you can be sure, I darn well know what all that and clean water mean to the 300 plus families these projects will serve. That's the message we have to get through some thick-headed people in Washington. *** You have succeeded in life when all you really want is only what you really need. ---Vernon Howard *** (NAPS)--Kellogg's and Scho- lastic Book Clubs are teaming up to help families by providing a coupon for free Scholastic books valued up to $5 with the purchase of two specially marked Kellogg's products at Walmart.
