unemployment the better pre pared they are to deal with its impacts on our community U rnemployment statis tics often fail to arouse interest from readers unless of course you happen to be one of those individuals out of work But joblessness has a face a human face And sharing that humanity with citizens so they can better understand the impacts of unemployment is a major goal behind a new program called New Braunfels Werks The initiative was officially launched Friday after months of discussion The premise is simple The more people know about unemployment the better prepared they are to deal with its impacts on our community The dissemination of helpful information is a major component of New Braunfels Werks Theres a wealth of data available to employers and workers alike but many businesses and citi zens dont know where to go for that information The HeraldZeitung will offer monthly a digest of the most important of these statistics Theres also a lot of help available for those who find themselves out of work Stories will explain how the unemployed can use the services of the Texas Workforce Commission and other groups to look for employment opportunities Those involved with New Braunfels Werks believe the broader dissemination of information will prove invaluable to community residents and decision makers Most of all it will held shed the cold impersonal

in the current issue of The New Yorker in a long detailed account aBout our intelli gence failures and the politically motivat ed stovepiping shooting unconfirm ed intelligence reports without analysis up to decisionmakers Among the horrific results reports Hersh By March 2002 a former White House official told me it was understood by many in the White House mat the president had decided in his own mind to go tq war The undeclared decision had a devastating impact on the continu ing war against terrorismThe Bush ad rninistration took many intelligence operations that had been aimed at al Qaida and other terrorist groups around the world and redirected them to the Per sian Gulf Linguists and special opera tives were reassigned and several ongo ing antiterrorism intelligence programs were While it is certainly not in the same category as the deceptions described above there was something so sad about the episode last week in which it was dis covered that 500 letters had been sent to American newspapers jn the names of serving soldiers without their knowledge or permission Thats not so much toftf ic as it is low The faked letters said to Identical lan guage was over there in
