Page 2A — Herald-Zeitung — Wednesday, November 30, 2005Bush honors El Paso volunteer, tours border
EL PASO (AP) — Moments after arriving in El Paso tor a tour of the Texas-Mexico border Tuesday, President Bush met with a local police volunteer and thanked him for his efforts.
Bush, who launched a Freedom Corps Volunteer Program after the Sept 11,2001, terrorist attacks, gave El Paso resident Dale Baugh the Presidential Call To Service Award—a small lapel pin emblazoned with a gold eagle.
Baugh, a 63-year-old semi-retired software analyst, said he started volunteering with the police department in 2002, helping to maintain the agency’s sex-offender registration database and organizing die citizen’s police academy courses.
Baugh said meeting Bush was “just like meeting a lost cousin or sometliing.’’
“He just said, Thanks for volunteering, thanks for all the work’,’’ Baugh said of his brief encounter with the president at the foot of Air Force One.
Baugh and said the presidential pin would quickly take the place of one from the police department that adorned his jacket lapel Tuesday.
Bush, who also was greeted Tuesday by Texas Gov. Rick Perry, was in El Paso as part of a southwest swing to promote his immigration policy proposals and to take a brief tour of the U.S.-Mexico border.
The president checked out border security operations in El Paso. He drove on a road along the Rio Grande river and was accompanied by border patrol agents, including some on horseback.

AMERICAN LEGION POST, AUXILIARY HELPING VETS DURING CHRISTMAS SEASON - Time is closing in rapidly when people will be preparing for the Christmas season. Many stores even now are selling their wares at 50 percent off the original price.
Having friends over for dinner, singing Christmas carols and decorating houses inside and out, eating good food are just around the comer.
However, there are many veterans confined to Veteran’s Affairs hospitals who will not have many of those options from which to choose.
Guadalupe Valley American Legion Post 35 and Auxiliary has pledged to do its best to even up those odds by concentrating on the hospitalized veterans during the Christmas season.
Post members will shop for family members, many of whom are located in different parts of the United States. Veterans select from a multitude of gifts suitable for their own family members. Volunteers from auxiliary units then will wrap selections with no charge to the veterans.
Items that are very popular include cans of coffee, boxes of tea bags, packages of hot chocolate mix, popcorn, new paperback books, new toothbrushes, wall and pocket calendars, large-print crossword puzzlebooks, nuts, coffee creamer, sweeteners, new jigsaw puzzles, writing tablets, writing stationary, all-occasion cards and Christmas cards (a few postage stamps for the cards would be appreciated), boxes of tissues (both pocket-size and box), packages of Kook Aid and lemonade. lite auxiliary will also accept cash donations.
Checks can be made payable to American legion Auxiliary Unit 35.

Snowstorm leaves thousands without power, roads closed
BISMARCK. N.D. (AP) — Crews on Tuesday gradually reopened major highways that had been closed by the Plains’ first blizzard of the season, stranding post-Thanksgiving travelers. Thousands of people remained without electricity.
Five deaths were blamed on slippery
roads in Minnesota, South Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas. A sixth person was killed by a tornado spun off by the huge storm system in Arkansas.
Remnants of the system headed over the upper Great Lakes on Tuesday after the storm dumped snow as far south
as the Texas Panhandle.
