Edith B. Mathis Former St. Joseph resident words that wealthy Americans do not recognize the Lazaruses that abound today. Edelman said the 14 million American children who live in poverty despite a record-high economy is "simply disgraceful." Child poverty is the "longest-running state of emergency" that hasn't been officially declared, she said. She criticized lawmakers, including President Clinton, for wanting to end welfare when the aim, she said, should be ending poverty.

Edelman said states that are saving unspent welfare block grants for a rainy day fund ought to be investing them in ways that help welfare recipients return to work. She praised states such as Maine and Illinois for using block grants to help welfare recipients attend college, and Virginia, for spending $25 million helping 17 communities provide transportation to workers coming off welfare. She touted 10 states for drafting their own earned income tax credit, and nine that have raised the minimum wage above the national. She also praised the state of Washington for regularly indexing its minimum wage according to the cost of living. Edelman sharply criticized Clinton and lawmakers for multi-billion-dollar military expenses when she said the nation seems unwilling to provide safe neighborhoods for its children.

Fund, said the challenge today is the same as when Martin Luther King launched his Poor People's Campaign in the days before he was assassinated in 1968. "He said the real question is 'do we have the As we stand in the dawn of the next century, that is still the real question," Edelman said. "We know how to end hunger. We need the political will." Edelman served as King's counsel for the Poor People's March that he organized before his death. She spoke Sunday at the national conference of Second Harvest, a national food bank network based in Chicago.

Citing the scriptural story of the rich man who ignores the poor Lazarus, she recalled King's 'V MATTHEW HICKSThe (Pittsburg) Morning Sun the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society to become a certified veterinary acupuncturist. Lame, a 4-year-old dachshund, is one of Dr. Painter's patients who has been relieved of pain thanks to the ancient Chinese art. Dr. Mary Sue Painter of Town and Country Animal notorial in Frontenac, is offering a new form of aid to patients with problems not solved by conventional medications veterinary acupuncture.

Painter studied for four months at Marian Wright Edelman speaks at conference of food bank network By CHERYL WITTENAUER Associated Press KANSAS CITY In the 1960s, a young civil rights lawyer persuaded two U.S. senators to go to Mississippi, where people were starving, to see poverty for themselves. More than 30 years later, Marian Wright Edelman called on an audience Sunday in Kansas City to "build a powerful movement" to end poverty in America. Edelman, founder and president of the Children's Defense Chinese healing helping animals By NIKKI PATRICK The (Pittsburg) Morning Sun PITTSBURG, Kan. Lanie suffered from a painful slipped disc, not an uncommon problem for dachshunds.

"She was even paralyzed for a while, and we bought one of those little carts for her, like a wheelchair for dogs," said Lanie's owner, Christy Strahan. "It just tears your heart out when you see your pet suffer and you can't do anything about it." But Lanie is walking again and seems to be in little discomfort, thanks to the ancient Chinese medical treatment of acupuncture the insertion of needles in specific points on the body for a healing effect. "It seems to depend on the individual animal," said Mary Sue Painter, the only certified veterinary acupuncturist in this area. "Lanie and some other patients have had an excellent response to this treatment, while some others have shown less." Painter said she became interested in veterinary acupuncture when a client who lives in Lawrence took her Lhasa Apso, who has suffered from back problems, to a veterinary acupuncturist in that area. "She was desperate, and the only other option for her dog was surgery, which could have cost thousands of dollars and the outcome was not guaranteed," Painter said.

"Fortunately, her dog also had very good results. That got me started thinking about it." In October 1996 she began taking courses in Florida through the International Veterinary Acupuncture Society. Betty J. (Frost) Dassero, 72, St. Joseph, Mass of Christian Burial: 10 a.m.

"Acupuncture the inserting of needles or placing of pressure on specified acupunc ture points is believed to balance this energy." Western research has shown that acupuncture can increase blood circulation, relieve muscle spasm, stimulate nerve regeneration and cause the release of hormones such as endorphins, one of the body's pain control chemicals. Painter learned the appropriate acupuncture points for a host of animals, from hamsters and ger- bils to cows and horses, birds and reptiles. The Chinese, for example, used acupuncture to prevent founder and colic in their horses. Painter, however, confines her practice to small animals. "Nobody has asked me to do acupuncture on a bird or reptile yet, but I'm ready if they do," she said.

"So far I've been treating dogs and cats." She has used the method for a variety of ailments, including seizures, skin diseases, intestinal problems and conditions involving the immune system. "I have a patient with kidney disease who's doing well, and I've had tomcats with urinary tract blockages who've really bounced back," Painter added. She uses very find, almost hairlike needles, and leaves them in the animal about 10 to 15 minutes. "If it's an older patient, I may leave the needles in less time," Painter said. The Planned Parenthood Clinic in Kansas City where no abortions are performed has been the site of many protests by abortion opponents.

In February of this year, the clinic was one of several Planned Parenthood centers around the nation that were targets of hoax threats of biological weapons exposure, forcing staffs and patients to undergo decontamination. "We live in an environment where we have to be eternally vigilant about potential violence. The threat is always there," Brous said shortly after a doctor who performed abortions was killed by a sniper through the window of his home in Amherst, N.Y. KC loses health-care leader Associated Press KANSAS CITY Patricia Brous, who rose from volunteer to president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri, has died at the age of 55. Brous died Friday at North Kansas Hospital after a battle with cancer, her family said.

She had had an earlier bout with breast cancer in 1985. Through the years, Brous became a familiar figure as Planned Parenthood responded to changes in Kansas and Missouri laws on abortion, including annual attempts by the Missouri Legislature to ban state funding for the organization.
