Thoughts for life I Information Provided By Local MCCL Written By Carol Kareb If you should hear a discussion on abortion listen closely and you will note the issue actually is a woman's right vs. when life begins. Who knows when life begins, doctors must. Why don't they tell us instead of letting this insane argument go on that it is simply a blab of tissue. Don't they care? Who does care/ Does anyone care? Are you comfortable in your life and the pressure of people telling you that abortion is killing a human being bothers you and those people should just shut up. Are they doing it just for money? Surely when it is all over they will just write a book. After all there are bigger issues to concern the country, not just what is right and wrong.

Wilfred C. Hansen PASTOR AT LARGE "Humble yourself before the Lord and He will exalt you.",,..."And you will know the truth and the truth will make you free. James 4:10 and John 8:32 I grieve for America and for all of our people. Truly these are dif- ficult days...dangerous days...some of the worst of my lifetime. Those carrying on the discussion at the national level seem largely partisan. I find-it all confusing, tragic and heartbreaking. President of the UCC, Dr. Paul Sherry, recently issued a state- ment to the press which adds some perspective to the discussion. ! find it helpful: "This is a sad week for our country and its people. President Clinton's infidelity and the partisan nature of the ongoing puonc investigation are a source of deep hurt for his family, injures friends andcolleagues, including Monica Lewinsky, and further undermines public confidence in the integrity of all leaders. Both the President's actions and the investigation have distracted our government from its most central concerns - care for the poor, justice for the oppressed, protection of the environment and the promotion of peace. "I am grateful to those who have been able to extend Dastora care to the President and his family, and hope that they can nno healing and reconciliation in the midst of God s forgiveness and grace. As we pray for the Clinton family, may we all recommit our- selves to the personal discipline and compassionate vision required for effective and faithful leadership in our society." Further, I suggest that you reflect on the following observation by Rev. Betty Clark of the MN Conference UCC staff: "Thomas Merton understood that in times of trial, prayer is the necessity. Merton's words remind us of a truth we know to be the foundation of our faith. His words are.,.'It (prayer) is a kind of hid- den, secret, unknown stabilizer, and a compass too.' May our prayers include all those struggling with fear and uncer- tainty in this time. And may your prayers and mine stabilize us in God's grace and provide us the compass we all need as we seek to find our way.' Pray! God can and will "heal our land." Extension report Jean Kvols, County Extension Educator STRESS. FATIGUE ARE MAJOR FARM SAFETY RISK FACTORS Stress and fatigue are major factors in making farming the country's second most hazardous occupation. Several research studies show this, according to John Shutske, farm safety and health specialist with the University of Minnesota Extension Service."Farming ranks second on the list of hazardous occupations compiled by the National Safety Council, just behind mining," says Shutske. "So far this year 15 Minnesota farmers, workers, and children have died in the farm workplace." While stress is part of everyday life, farmers and their families need to recognize that too much stress can by deadly, says Shutske. Frequently, people think if they "work harder" problems will eventually go away. This can lead to a vicious cycle of more stress and more fatigue, and eventually something or somebody breaks down. Suggestions Shutske offers for reducing farm stress and fatigue are: * Ask for help from people who have access to information or services that can help you through tough times. Often, people have difficulty realizing they are not alone in dealing with high stress levels. Helpful groups include churches, local technical schools and colleges, extension educators, health professionals, and social services. * Take time to make purposeful, concrete changes to reduce farm hazards. It's impossible to be stress free, so make sure you have backup measures in place. These include machinery guards, rollover protection on tractors, and machinery lighting and marking for road travel. Tractor rollovers and roadway collisions are among the greatest fanning hazards. Wear seatbelts when driving any vehicle. * Take care of yourself. Get regular medical checkups. Let your doctor know how you feel physically and emotionally. Take the time to eat right. No producer would dream of putting poor, low-grade fuel in a tractor. Yet during the busy harvest season, we may eat junk food or high-fat food on the run, or worse yet, not eat at all. * Use exercise and humor, which are natural stress relievers. Stress is caused in part by measurable chemical changes inside the body. Exercising (if your doctor approves) and laughter can interrupt these chemical changes and lead to a more positive outlook. * Be extremely careful with your kids! Of Minnesota's 15 farm work deaths this year, five have been children. Make sure young kids have a safe, out-of-the-way place to play. Take precautions to insure that teens operating equipment or doing chores have, the apprropriat.raeatal and physical maqu/ity to do the job safely, * Communicate as a family. Planning during stressful times is extremely important. Set personal, financial and family goals, and use the variety of community resources wisely. Too often, producers think, "things will simply work out." Sometimes they do, but it usually takes a pro-active, planned approach. "We are concerned about the health and safety of farm families as we look at the tough times that may lie ahead," says Shutske.
