Harold Hinkle Gets into Bondage
Valley Township Clerk-Treasurer Harold Hinkle has had to seek out an insurance company willing to put up a bond that would enable him to serve the township in his capacity. This is because a new state law requires that of township officials that write checks. It cost the township $100 for a $25,000 bond. If Harold does do something illegal, the township will cash in big time. Of course, Harold would be moved to the Gray Bar Hotel. Something he would not enjoy at all.

Terri Schiavo Supporters Wonder
Why Congress Chooses Not to Act
by Jody Brown and Bill Fancher
Of the Agape Press
Christian activists are appealing to God and to Congress to save the life of Terri Schiavo, who because of a court-imposed order is preparing to enter her twelfth day without food and water. A bioethics analyst says, while it may be difficult for Terri's supporters to face, time may have run out for the 41-year-old Florida woman. Christian activists on the scene and across the country believe Congress can play a role in the ultimate outcome and should enforce its subpoena ordering that Terri be brought to Washington. Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, tells Family News In Focus that Congress has the option to exercise some legal actions. "Congress still has this outstanding subpoena to Ms. Schiavo, and they were going to hold a hearing on the issue," Fitton points out. "And Judge Greer ignored the subpoena. Congress has it within its power to vote Judge Greer in contempt to enforce its own subpoena, and refer it to the Justice Department for action, and they haven't done that." Fitton believes the lawmakers on Capitol Hill are afraid to act. He says they appear to be wary of the "political blowback" that may result from any efforts they expend to save Terri Schiavo.
