TODAY'S SCRIPTURE For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. — Ephesians2:18(NIV) DUI / It's worth it if one gets message FROM PAGE B1 based on what emergency workers have seen. After it was over, Kerry Hoen, 18, an Ell-Saline student, said she takes these things very seriously but "I don't know how serious they take it," she said of the other students. S"he said, unfortunately, it will take some of them to actually see the real thing before they get it. • Jennifer Williams, 17, a Central student, said one demonstration wasn't going to change the ways of youthful ignorance. Another Central student, Jennifer Burse, 17, agreed. "It's worth trying, but it's not going to do anything," Burse said. Central student Nadia Terente, 16, said, "If it helped one person ... it was a good thing." Terente's statement was echoed by many other students and Greg Brockway the Salina firefighter who coordinated the event. He said some students "If it helped one person ... it was a good thing." Nadia Terente Central High School student would fool around during the re-enactment, and unfortunately, it wouldn't sink in for all of them. But, he said, if only a few — even just one — let the reality of the re-enactment sink in and used it to make the right decision, it was worth the effort. A video of the re-enactment — underwritten by St. Francis Academy 5097 W. Cloud, and Green Lantern, 500 Graves — was made so schools can use it as a prevention tool. • Reporter Tana Thomson can be reached at 823-6464, Ext. 173, or by e-mail at sjtthomson @saljournal.com..

Ward said. Ward said the dealership already had started on its building plans before Ford originated the program. However, the old facility would not have met Ford's standards without a lot of work. "Ford wants its dealerships to be standardized," Ward said. "They're just raising the bar a little bit. They're eliminating bad dealers and re- • PAROLE BOARD HEARINGS warding the good ones." Long McArthur already.has passed three of the four criteria needed to become a Blue Oval Dealer, Ward said. The only criteria left is an on-site inspection that, if passed, should allow the dealership to become certified as of May 30. "It's never been a matter of if, it's when," Ward said. West McArthur said there have been some inquiries about purchasing the dealership's old building, though not for use as a vehicle dealership, from parties he declined to identify • Reporter David Clouston can be reached at 823-6464, Ext. 131, or by e-mail at sjdclouston @saljounial.com.
