Community Bulletin Board 'Jeans for Joy'campaign will benefit area youth "Jeans for Joy" is an opportunity for businesses to allow their employees a casual day while raising money to supplement the Toys for Tots Angel Tree Program. In 2001, TUFT spent $2,000 to $3,000 to purchase gifts and clothing to make sure every child received a toy and item of clothing. Area businesses can help with the organization's financial void. Participating businesses will need to encourage employees to wear jeans in exchange for a $2 donation to the Jeans for Joy Campaign. A business can have as few or as many designated "Jean Days" as it deems appropriate between now and Christmas. The money that accumulates from now until December will be used to purchase gifts when an Angel is not returned.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Colin Powell is resuming talks on Iraq with U.N. Security Council members as Bush administration officials press for swift action from both Congress and the United Nations to show resolve against Saddam Hussein. Members of Congress, however, are split on whether it is wise to act within Powell's timetable of four weeks on an as-yet undefined resolution on Iraq. There were signs of a possible stalemate before November's congressional elections. "We don't know what this administration wants to do," Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle said Sunday on ABC's "This Week." He said President Bush had yet to ask for a resolution on Iraq. Bush's national security adviser, Condoleezza Rice, countered: "Obviously, it is up to the Congress to offer resolutions, nut to the administration." Several leading lawmakers made clear they will consider such resolutions on their own schedule. On the diplomatic front, Powell, who planned to be in New York tpday, said he hoped that intensive work on drafting a resolution for the Security Council could begin by the end of this week. He was optimistic about a council vote within a few weeks. The measure should give Iraq "a matter of weeks" to comply with long-standing U.N. resolutions on its weapons program, Powell said. He met with council members last week to win support for a tough resolution and was returning to New York to resume the effort.
