MfrUncaHw PwrrUnfl, Saturday, November 27, 1993 Grange Calls For Reform Of Act WASHINGTON, D.C. The National Grange has called on the President and Congress to make reform of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) a major priority in 1994. Grange members believe that ESA reform should balance human costs with ecological bene fits. Grange delegates, meeting in Cleveland, Ohio recently at the 127 th annual convention of the National Grange, adopted several Stores, Shoppers Help Fight Hunger LANCASTER (Lan ,-caster Co.) Four of Lancaster County’s largest independent grocers—Shady Maple Farm Market, Willow Valley Market, Fergu son and Hassler, and Oregon Dairy Farm Market have joined with Water Street Res cue Mission to help Feed the Hunggry. Beginning November 22 and concluding at Christmas, these stores will offer shoppers a convenient way to do nate the cost of one meal for a homeless person at Water Street Rescue Mission. At the cash registers of each store, customers will find a sign encour aging them to “Feed the Hungry” and a tablet of coupons. Those who want to give can tear off a bar- or number-coded coupon and hand it to the cashier along with their other groceries. The cashier will scan the coupon into the cash register (or enter several numbers) and $1.46 the average cost of one meal at Water Street Rescue Mission will be added to the custom er’s grocery bill. Shoppers who wish to give- more than the cost of one meal can ask the cashier to multiply $1.46 by as much as they want, just as simp ly as if they were pur chasing two or more bottles of soda or cans of soup. The coupon along with the grocery receipt can be used to prove that the gift was made to the mission. The Rescue Mission of Syracuse, New York originated the program last year in connection with Wegmans, a gro cery chain in the Syra cuse area. The money raised to feed the hungry in Syra cuse exceeded the pro gram organizers’ ex pectations, and this year Wegmans encouraged the Syracuse Rescue Mission to plan on rais ing $lOO,OOO. guidelines to reform the ESA. They called for focusing on key stone species that are critical to the stability of the ecosystem. They opposed the adoption of the Bio logical Survey Act to And and catalogue new endangered spe cies. They called on the federal government to rely primarily on public lands to maintain critical habitats. They opposed the auto matic designation of any water source that supports a population Bugher, Director of De velopment at Water Street Rescue Mission, “the program is just be ginning in Lancaster County, but we expect a lot of.shoppers will take advantage of the oppor tunity to help.
