A6 WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30, 1997 NATION THE SALINA JOURNAL V PRESIDENTS' SUMMIT The Associated Press First lady Hillary Rodham Clinton (from left), former President George Bush and retired Gen. Colin Powell applaud the Philadelphia Orchestra Tuesday during closing ceremonies of the Presidents' Summit for America's Future In Philadelphia. Real volunteer work left up to the troops Three-day summit ends with charge to make good on pledges By The Associated Press PHILADELPHIA — With marching orders from Gen. Colin Powell and first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, Gary St. Peter and thousands of others left the volunteer summit Tuesday with plans to stop talking and start doing. "The hard work begins tomorrow morning," said St. Peter, 47, an attorney from Providence, R.I., who plans to set up safe havens for children to spend their after-school hours. With Independence Hall as a backdrop, Hillary Clinton, former President Bush and Powell, general chairman of the Presidents' Summit for America's Future, lauded the delegates in a sun-drenched sendoff. "You are the real troops," said Powell. "It was the work that you did yesterday and this morning that is giving life, that is giving a pulse to this effort of ours that will make it successful." Powell assured the skeptics that "we're'going to glue this together and make reality" out of the hundreds of pledges that have been made to improve the lives of 2 million of the nation's 15 million disadvantaged children by 2000. Some delegates were ready to begin work and others were planning local versions of the national summit. An ABC News-Washington Post poll released Monday showed the importance of asking for volunteers. Three in four Americans said most people they know would volunteer if asked. Of the 55 percent who said they've volunteered in the last year, 42 percent said they got involved because someone invited them. T LOS ANGELES RIOTS Woman donates $2,000 to each flooded family By The Associated Press BISMARCK, N.D. — A woman has made an anonymous pledge to give $2,000 to each household in flood-ravaged Grand Forks and neighboring East Grand Forks, Minn., state and city officials said Tuesday. Grand Forks Mayor Pat Owens called the donation a gift from heaven. Kevin Dvorak, president of the North Dakota Community Foundation, a nonprofit corporation which is distributing the money, said the donor transferred more than $2 million into its account Tuesday. He said between 300 and 500 payments were made Tuesday, totaling $600,000 to $1 million. The donor reportedly has no ties to North Dakota, and neither she nor any of her relatives ever lived in the state. 341 Center | Flowers For All Occasions.

Community leaders unveiled the site of a new supermarket as proof of their efforts to replace some of the more than 1,000 buildings destroyed in the three days of looting and violence that left 55 dead. "It's the fastest rebound of any urban civil disturbance in the nation ... and yet, in my view, it's still too slow," said City Councilman Mark Ridley-Thomas, whose inner city district suffered $100 million worth of damage. "It's tough, methodical, tedious work to rebuild a community." As he spoke, crews prepared to demolish a shopping center on south Western Avenue that was looted and destroyed in the rioting. The $10 million Superior Warehouse — one of five supermarkets rebuilt or under construction in the area — will open in its place this year and provide 150 jobs, Ridley-Thomas said. Elsewhere, the African-American Unity Center held its annual April 29 commemoration of the rioting. The center held ceremonies for 80 graduates of its free and highly successful job training classes. "It shows us where we come from, where we are now and where we must now go," said Jarvis Stewart, the center's resource developer and program manager. so you ^ can pour on ~[ the J$ S A ^^~ ^iwinnw A V t BARBECUE SAUCE 50< OFF THE PURCHASE OF 2 BOTTLES CURLEY'S FAMOUS BARBEQUE SAUCE WEDNESDAY NIGHT SPECIAL EVERY WEDNESDAY 5-9 PM 3 Piece Fried Chicken Dinner $325 Includes tossed salad, soup or tomato juice, baked potato, french bread, coffee or tea.
