I *uiqneu000 I National U .CrveUnn AdgninscytiOn' a I Moran sponsors bill to move pipeline forward U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) has sponsored legislation that would reqmre a construction permit to be issued for the Keystone XL pipeline within 60 days of passage. The North America Energy Security Act would reverse President Obama's announce- ment earlier this month that he will delay his decision on the permit until after the 2012 election, despite the administration taking three years re- wewing the Keystone XL permit and conducting two comprehensive envi- ronmental evaluations of the project. "Recent events in the Middle East continue to demonstrate the vital im- portance of having access to a reliable and secure energy supply," Sen. Moran said. "Allowing the Keystone XL pipe- line to move forward would create approximately 20,000 new jobs, bring hbout $7 billion in new investment, and provide 700,000 new barrels ofoii a day to the United States. Kansas is especially impacted by the project's delay because municipal utilities across the state have already invested in elec- trical infrastructure to supply power to the pumping stations along the length of the pipeline. Further delaying this project will only'stall job ereiti0h'and' economic growth at a time when we need it most." Moran said. "The North America Energy Security Act would: .Establish Congressional affirmation that Key- stone XL is good for job creation, economic growth and national secu- rity; Require the secretary of state to issue a permit within 60 days to allow the Keystone XL project to move ahead, unless thg President publicly deter- mines that it is not in the national interest; .Require the permit for Key- stone XL to contain strong and specific environmental protections and protect states' rights; .Require the federal per- mit to recognize an altemanve route approved by Nebraska, protecting their ability to shift the route of the pipeline to avoid the Sand Hills while not hold- ing up construction elsewhere; and Conclude more than three years of federal review by deeming the Final Environmental Impact Statement to be adequate." RHHS to hold all- county food drive The students at Rock Hills High School in Mankato are again conduct- ing a community service project. Be- tween Dec. 5 and Dec. 16, they will conduct an all-school, all-county food drive. The goal is to collect as much food as they can to give to the Jewell County Food Pantry. The Rock Hills student council will act as the organiz- ing group. "Last year was our first attempt to conduct a food drive that involved all the students at Rock Hills High School," said Terry Bailey, Rock Hills High School student council sponsor. "In past years we have had one group or organization conduct a food drive. This would only involve a small part of the student body. We realized that Jewell County has only one high school, Rock Hills, and students are from all over the county. The idea of an all-school all- county undertaking for our local food pantry made sense. As you might imag- ine, we started slowly because such an undertaking was new to everyone. The longer we went, the better we got." This time of year seems to be a good time to conduct a food drive. Families in need tend to struggle much more during this time of the year. The old adage, "it is better to give than to receive," seems appropriate here. The student council is hoping to create some friendly competition be- tween various groups with the end re- sult being more food collected. Sev- eral group and individual activisties are planned throughout the course of the food drive. Citizens of Jewell County are all encouraged to donate a little or a lot. When questioned about the goal for this second food drive, Bailey said, "We weren't sure what to expect last year. We had never tried anything like this before. Our goal this year is to surpass last year's total."
