Meals on Wheels is one of 14 agencies that will be able to keep on helping the less fortunate long after Christmas has passed. FROMA1 CHRISTMAS: Passionate about changing people's lives I grew up enjoying the outdoors with my parents and family. Today, my wife Lynda and our three sons can be found every weekend in the mountains and, especially in winter, on the ski slopes. Yet thousands of others in our society have neither the family, the resources, nor the opportunity to enjoy the majesty of the Canadian Rockies or to be brutally frank to enjoy anything. They are the homeless, tie abused, the mentally ill, the addicted, and the abandoned children of broken families. To these people, young and old, the Calgary Herald Christmas Fund has made a significant and continuing difference. Unlike most yuletide initiatives, the fund is not focused simply on providing a few days of happiness over a short period of time. It provides much-needed resources to passionate organizations trying to change people's lives on a year-round basis. It is a capacity builder, where the impact is designed to be sustainable. It provides resources, for example, for the Calgary Inter-Faith Food Bank to replenish its empty shelves in the cold of February, long after Christmas giving has passed. Albertans are renowned for their compassion, for looking after those less fortunate. Give to the Christmas Fund, where every penny flows directly to the organizations that are helping people. The Calgary Herald and its partners deserve the heartfelt thanks of the community for leading this unique effort. In the end, all our families are the beneficiaries. Merry Christmas. Ken Read is president of Alpine Canada, the national organization for alpine skiing in Canada. He was a member of the Crazy Canucks from 1974 to 1983.

Hillary's Obama jab backfires Clinton campaign takes hit in polls after attack SHELDON ALBERTS CanWest News Service WASHINGTON Hillary Clinton's bad week began innocently enough, with a news release Sunday that many political reporters initially assumed had been written in jest. The 550-word missive from Clinton's campaign headquarters accused rival Barack Obama of "rewriting history" by claiming he didn't always want to be president of the United States. The evidence of Obama's longstanding White House dreams was documented in a bold headline, to emphasize its scandalous nature: "In kindergarten, Senator Obama wrote an essay titled 'I Want to Become President.' " When it quickly became clear Clinton wasn't joking she subsequently cast Obama as a power-thirsty rookie senator during several campaign appearances her opponents pounced. "I want to confess to all of you right now," fellow Democratic candidate John Edwards said in Iowa, "In third grade, I wanted to be two things: I wanted to be a cowboy, and I wanted to be Superman." Quipped Obama: "It's silly season. I understand (Hillary) has been quoting my kindergarten teacher in Indonesia." That Clinton is suddenly being mocked for making novice political mistakes signals a marked shift in fortune for a front-running presidential candidate who, only a month ago, was viewed as the inevitable Democratic nominee. A series of recent polls shows Clin- Hillary Clinton ton's comfortable lead over Obama once more than 30 percentage points, according to Gallup has begun to slip sharply in the runup to the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 3. The latest USA TodayGallup survey, released Tuesday, shows Clinton's support nationally among Democrats has fallen from 50 per cent at the start of November to 39 per cent at the beginning of this month. But the bad-news polls have triggered a shift in campaign strategy for Clinton. After months of complaining AGING DISGRACEFULLY: Are you prepared to care tor your parents?

D SPORTS: The Philadelphia Flyers , the franchise that spawned the NHL's most violent era, is ready to bully again. she'd been the target of personal attacks, Clinton has grown worried enough to engage in some negative campaigning of her own. She characterized her decision to place increased focus on her opponents as "the fun part" of campaigning. "You decide which makes more sense: entrust our country to someone who is ready on Day 1," she told voters in Clear Lake, Iowa, "or to put America in the hands of someone with Little national or international experience, who started running for president the day he arrived in the U.S. Senate." Obama's campaign has responded with something close to delight at the renewed concern Clinton is showing toward the Illinois senator. Obama has set up a new website, hillaryattacks.barackobama.com, to chart Clinton's campaign criticisms. It is also using the harsher Clinton tone as a fundraising tool, asking for donations every time an Obama supporter hears a Clinton attack. Obama's strategists maintain Clinton has become "panicked" by the new polls. "As the momentum continues to build ... we can expect the frequency and severity of these attacks to increase," Sam Graham-Felsen, an Obama aide, wrote in a campaign blog.
