Many Disabled Veterans Denied VA Educational Benefits

Many Disabled=Are you a disabled veteran who would love the opportunity to become "rehabilitated" utilizing the infamous VA Vocational Rehabilitation Program? If the answer is "yes", let's hope you fair better than the majority of disabled veterans who are being denied the educational benefits that is being "supposedly" offered by the program.

WFI Launches Petition Drive Against Becker Recess Appointment 

Workforce Fairness Institute Launches Petition Drive Against Becker Recess Appointment

Washington, D.C. (February 11, 2010) – The Workforce Fairness Institute (WFI) today launched a national petition drive in an effort to send a message to President Barack Obama that he should not proceed with a recess appointment of Craig Becker to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), particularly in light of the bipartisan vote against this extreme and activist nominee:

 “The bipartisan vote in the U.S. Senate against Craig Becker sent a message that our nation’s top job creators – small businesses – come before union bosses and their job-killing policies,” said Katie Packer, executive director of the Workforce Fairness Institute. “While there are certainly instances where a recess appointment is appropriate, the appointment of Craig Becker is not one of them. President Obama should understand that a recess appointment of Becker to the National Labor Relations Board would be a complete contradiction to the jobs message he delivered during the State of the Union address and serve as a slap in the face to courageous Senators, including members of his own Party, who opposed this nomination.”

NH DHHS - State Seeking Nominations for Senior Volunteer Awards

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) announces the nomination process is underway for the Joseph D. Vaughan Awards. The Vaughan Awards are an annual effort recognizing outstanding leadership and initiative among New Hampshire senior volunteers.

This year’s awards are a joint effort between EngAGING NH and New Hampshire’s State Committee on Aging (SCOA). The two organizations are currently accepting nominations. A committee will then review all the nominations and select one senior or one couple from each county to be honored.

“There are so many valuable services that senior volunteers provide to communities all over our State” said Vaughan Award Coordinator Roger Vachon. “EngAGING NH and SCOA are proud to be able to honor the hard work these volunteers do to help improve the lives of others.”

Some of the valuable services past Vaughan Award recipients have provided include delivering meals to the homebound, volunteering at hospitals, adult day programs and home health agencies, visiting residents of nursing facilities, working with medication assistance programs, providing transportation, and helping to organize or enhance community resources.

The Vaughan Awards were initiated in 1962 in memory of Joseph D. Vaughan, a New Hampshire legislator and an advocate on behalf of the elderly. Vaughan was instrumental in creating a state agency dedicated to the well being of senior citizens.

To be eligible for consideration, nominees must be: An individual or couple residing in New Hampshire; must be over the age of 60; must have shown outstanding leadership or demonstrated meritorious achievement, as a volunteer, on behalf of the older citizens of New Hampshire. Nominations must be received no later than March 20, 2010. For more information contact Roger Vachon, Vaughan Award Coordinator at engagingnh@yahoo.com

Award recipients will be invited to participate in a ceremony honoring their accomplishments. The ceremony is scheduled for May 13, at the Statehouse in Concord.

Poll:  GOP gains reflect a lack of faith in the incumbent political class
Newsmax - Though the polls show Republicans gaining at the expense of the Democrats, it's not necessarily a sign that voters have a newfound belief that the GOP is more competent - it's largely an indication that Americans have little faith in the incumbent political class and are perhaps ready to make another wholesale change.
