When it comes to children's health, knowing where to turn can mean the difference between finding answers for concerns and going unchecked. An event planned for Wednesday and Thursday is designed to help parents learn where they can turn when health concerns arise.

THE UNION County Children's Health and Safety Fair is planned for Wednesday and Thursday at the Blue Mountain Conference Center. Fifteen organizations that provide services for children will be represented at the fair.

The event will help educate parents of young children about services that are available in the county. The fair will also provide various health-related screenings for children 5 years and younger. Hours will be 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday.

ANYONE WITH children should plan on attending.

The fair will include developmental screenings in a variety of areas: infant development, vision and hearing, physical development, thinking skills, and speech and language. Immunizations will also be available for those age 18 and under.

THE FAIR PROVIDES an excellent way for parents to find out what agencies they can turn to in time of need. Union County's Local Interagency Coordinating Council, which is managed by the Union-Baker Education Service District, is responsible for pulling the resources together.

Parents owe it to their kids to find out the resources that are available for children and families.


Fans of Major League Baseball aren't big on the idea of a strike, especially as the season winds down and heads into the playoffs. Neither are team owners or players.

But a strike is what players have called for if they don't see more movement from owners in contract negotiations.

WHAT WOULD A STRIKE, as the NFL season kicks off, mean for baseball?

It would mean fans turning their attention away from baseball, which would do neither the owners nor players any good. It would deal the majors a second major blow in recent years due to a strike. But it wouldn't be the end of baseball.

The players who called the Aug. 30 strike date know that fans are fickle — that they'll come back eventually. Owners know, too. Players have struck eight times since 1972.

Fans' fickleness is the reason nothing's ever settled in the world of Major League Baseball.
