New census figures estimate 23.6% of children in West Virginia lived in poverty last year.
The figures released Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau ranks West Virginia 11th highest in child-poverty rates among the states.
Among surrounding states, Kentucky ranked fourth at 25.6%; Ohio was 17th at 21.9%; Pennsylvania was tied for 31st at 17.1%, Virginia was 40th at 13.9% and Maryland was 50th at 11.6%.
The national child-poverty rate was 20%.
About the murderous rampage of U.S. soldiers from the 5th Stryker Combat Brigade who killed and dismembered Afghani civilians, evidently “for sport,” the Santa Rosa Press Democrat reported on September 20th, “Army officials have not disclosed a motive” for the outrage. Let me try.
Violence is puzzling when we can’t see the forest for the trees. If we focus on just this event – and it’s certainly a shocker – we may not realize that it’s part of a much larger pattern, to see which we want to take a step back – in fact, in two – to get the whole picture.
What these men did is only one of many signs of breakdown in both our long-drawn-out wars in the Middle East. In Iraq, for example, from a report filed by McClatchy’s Washington Bureau on September 17th:
Drug and alcohol abuse in the ranks, and the associated misdemeanor offenses, have risen alarmingly in the nine-year course of the war. “Drug and alcohol abuse is [now] a significant health problem in the Army,“ stated a 350-page report the Army released in July. • Sexual assault tripled in the period 2001-2009; and most telling: • So did suicide. There were 148 Army suicides in the first six months of this year and the toll is expected to surpass last year’s grim total of 160.
Moreover, record numbers of veterans from both wars “broken,” dysfunctional, unable to work, to stay in relationships, or out of jail.
At least, the Army is starting to lend some humane attention to these men and women, after a decade of denial and neglect. Said Gen. Peter W. Chiarelli, the vice chief of staff of the Army.
We can’t use these people up, have them develop a problem and then throw them away and not take care of them. There is no way. I can’t be part of an organization like that. Part of the reason they’re having the problem is the situation we put them into.
And what is that situation? These soldiers lose it because they were put into a war that should never have been fought. There were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq – and our leaders knew it. Similarly, it was not necessary to destroy the entire Taliban movement – assuming that military force could accomplish such a thing – to capture Osama bin Laden (which, of course, has not happened anyway).
But to get the final answer, we have to step back yet again. We have to recognize that there is such a thing as moral progress. Slavery was considered normal from the earliest records of history down to the nineteenth century of our era, when a small band of Quakers in London started a movement that broke the spell and suddenly brought to light the horror of enslaving another human being. Slavery still happens, but that’s because of other factors; it was formally abolished in the nineteenth century because the time was right for people to wake up and stop looking on a whole race of human beings as objects, as possessions.
Today we are reaching a similar crisis with the institution of war; despite appearances, people are becoming more aware that we cannot solve problems by waging war on them. If you are not aware that this is happening, you are not alone; watch any news or “entertainment” program and you’ll see that competition, violence, and war are still considered “normal.” It’s rare to spot nonviolent alternative methods, since they are so rarely featured in mainstream media.
It is significant that a good number of the troubled veterans we just mentioned are not suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), exactly, but a variant recently uncovered by psychologist Rachel McNair that she calls PITS: Perpetration Induced Traumatic Stress. Simply put, when we do violence against others we are in some psychological way hurting ourselves – and that pain is becoming more evident as the patina of glory surrounding war wears off. One brigade commander correctly pointed out that the drug problem is “just a symptom of the disease.“ But the name of the disease is not dysfunctional leaders or lax discipline or a particular conflict that should not have been fought; it’s war.
Back when he was campaigning, soon-to-be President Obama said that we must “not only end war (in Iraq) but end the mindset that lead to war.” Of course, he did nothing of the kind. And so it’s up to us.
I encourage anyone who hasn’t already done so to familiarize him- or herself with the alternatives to war that fall into three broad categories:
1) Living more lightly on the earth, since most wars today are fought over its diminishing resources;
2) Diplomacy, mediation, and international institutions that can keep disputes from turning into wars, and
3) Nonviolent mechanisms to deal with the wars that nonetheless break out, like the unarmed interventions just mentioned that are helping to reduce violence in trouble spots all over the world now.
I recommend that we all learn about these things and talk about them with family, friends, and our congressmen or women. You may not get anything but raised eyebrows at first, but remember what Gandhi said about a real innovation: “First they ignore you; then they laugh at you; then they fight you – and then you win.” Provided you have learned to fight nonviolently. That must be the subject of another article.

The Conference USA schedule is set to get underway for the Marshall Thundering Herd and Southern Miss Golden Eagles, as the two will square off from ‘The Rock’ in Hattiesburg.
Marshall posted its first win of the season last Saturday with a 24-23 victory over Ohio University in the Battle of the Bell. The Thundering Herd’s non- conference slate was certainly no cakewalk, as last week’s victory was preceded by losses to Ohio State, West Virginia and Bowling Green. And even last week, Marshall had to stave off a late surge by the Bobcats.
Southern Miss is coming off last week’s 13-12 win at Louisiana Tech and has won 12 of 14 league openers since joining Conference USA. The Golden Eagles have had even better success at home, having won 10 straight home games dating back to November of 2008. It is the program’s longest home winning streak since reeling off 11 in a row from the 1998-2000 seasons.
USM claimed a 27-20 win over Marshall last November to increase its lead in the all-time series to 4-1.
After four games, Marshall’s offense is still very much a work in progress. The Herd rank 100th in the nation in scoring offense (20 ppg) and are averaging just 332.5 yards per game, which ranks 87th. Brian Anderson is coming off a solid performance under center, as he completed 21-of-30 passes for 295 yards and three touchdowns against Ohio. Two of those TD passes went to Antavious Wilson, who finished with 119 yards on seven catches. The key drive came in the fourth quarter after Marshall had relinquished the lead for the first time. Trailing by one, the Herd put together a 14-play, 70-yard touchdown drive in which they converted three third downs and took nearly seven minutes off the clock. The Herd added a crucial two-point conversion to take an eight-point lead with eight minutes to play.
After reclaiming the lead midway through the fourth quarter, the Marshall defense allowed OU to drive down the field and score on a Hail Mary with no time remaining. The Bobcats then opted to go for the game-winning two-point conversion, but the Herd held strong and the final pass attempt fell incomplete. It was a close call for a defense that has had some problems stopping opponents thus far. The Herd currently rank 101st in the nation in total defense (430.5 ypg) and 105th in scoring defense (34 ppg). But aside from that final drive, Marshall held its own defensively. Ohio converted only 3-of-12 third downs for the game which, for the most part, allowed the Herd defense to get off the field and stay fresh.
The Golden Eagles scored 30-plus points in each of the two games leading up to last Saturday’s contest at Louisiana Tech. But they managed just 13 points in that game, and as it turned out, they needed every one of them. The offense was, in fact, able to move the ball, as Southern Miss notched 23 first downs, 425 yards of total offense, and an all-important 17-minute edge in time of possession. However, the Golden Eagles managed just one field goal in three trips to the red zone. Austin Davis threw for 233 yards with one touchdown and one interception. But the ground attack was another story, as USM was held to a collective 3.6 yards per carry on 54 attempts as a team. Look for the coaching staff to dial up more opportunities for Desmond Johnson, who leads the team in rushing (222 yds, 4.7 ypc, 3 TD) and receiving (13 rec).
For three quarters, Southern Miss stifled Louisiana Tech’s offense at every turn. Then, in the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs came to life and nearly erased a 13-3 deficit. A 19-yard touchdown run with 11:07 remaining trimmed the margin to 13-10, and Tech later added a safety on a blocked punt in the end zone. But redshirt freshman defensive back Deron Wilson came to the rescue for Southern Miss, intercepting a pass at the Golden Eagles’ 20-yard line with 2:31 remaining to seal the victory. On the season, USM is allowing 19 points and 311 total yards per game, both of which rank in the middle of the pack nationally. The Golden Eagles allowed 41 points in a season-opening loss to South Carolina, but in the three games since have allowed only 35 points total.
Both teams are coming off ugly victories, and in both cases, there were lessons to be learned. Whichever team can correct its second-half collapse should come out the winner in this one.

The bright star Fomalhaut is low in the southeast at nightfall and due south around midnight.
It is in a barren patch of sky, making it easy to pick out.
At least one planet orbits the star, and other planets may await discovery.
‘I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.’
Life is comfortable and we can become very material-minded, protective of our creature-comforts, clinging to the things we like.
Stir a fire in us, Lord, so that we will not get distracted with less important things such as five-star living.
There is great news to be shared, and lived, about the God who lavishes gifts upon us and whose promise to love faithfully is experienced in making life for others.
Show yourself to us as a God who is a community, and help us live that spirit with our neighbor.
Grant us the grace to be able to identify our extra baggage.
It’s a big heart we want, Lord—don’t let us get weighed down with trivia.
Job 19:21-27. I believe I shall see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living—Ps 26(27):7-9, 13-14. Luke 10:1-12.

Thought for Today: “The average man does not know what to do with this life, yet wants another one which will last forever.“ — Anatole France, French author (1844-1924).
Today’s Highlight in History:
On Sept. 30, 1938, after co-signing the Munich Agreement allowing Nazi annexation of Czechoslovakia’s Sudetenland, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain praised the accord on his return home, saying, “I believe it is peace for our time.“
On this date:
In 1777, the Continental Congress — forced to flee in the face of advancing British forces — moved to York, Pa.
In 1791, Mozart’s opera “The Magic Flute” premiered in Vienna, Austria.
In 1809, a treaty was signed by Indiana Territory Gov. William Henry Harrison and representatives of four Indian tribes under which the Indians sold some 3 million acres of land to be used for U.S. settlements.
In 1846, Boston dentist William Morton used ether as an anesthetic for the first time as he extracted an ulcerated tooth from merchant Eben Frost.

Voicing his discontent with the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling in United States v. Pineda-Moreno, which declared the warrantless use of a GPS tracking device to be constitutional, Chief Judge Alex Kozinski warned, “We are taking a giant leap into the unknown, and the consequences for ourselves and our children may be dire and irreversible. Some day, soon, we may wake up and find we’re living in Oceania.”
Indeed, we are already living in George Orwell’s totalitarian state known as Oceania, where the all-seeing government sees and tracks everything we do. By asserting that the police can constitutionally sneak onto a private driveway without a warrant and stick a GPS tag on your car so that they can remotely track you, the Ninth Circuit didn’t necessarily break any new ground. Rather, they merely confirmed what we have suspected all along: that the concept of private property is dead and along with it, the right against unreasonable searches and seizures once protected by the Fourth Amendment.
Having outstripped our ability as humans to control it, technology has become our Frankenstein’s monster. Delighted with technology’s conveniences, its ability to make our lives easier by doing an endless array of tasks faster and more efficiently, we have given it free rein in our lives, with little thought to the legal or moral ramifications of doing so. Thus, we have no one but ourselves to blame for the fact that technology now operates virtually autonomously according to its own invasive code, respecting no one’s intimate moments or privacy and impervious to the foibles of human beings and human relationships.
For example, consider how enthusiastically we welcomed Global Positioning System (GPS) devices into our lives. We’ve installed this satellite-based technology in everything from our phones to our cars to our pets. Yet by ensuring that we never get lost, never lose our loved ones and never lose our wireless signals, we are also making it possible for the government to never lose sight of us, as well.
GPS, originally known as Navstar, is funded and operated by none other than the U.S. Department of Defense. The U.S. military controls the satellites used by GPS devices and transmits signals to ground GPS receivers. The U.S Air Force, by means of ground stations, sustains 24 operational GPS satellites at all times. These synchronized satellites emit signals at the same time. A GPS receiver located on earth collects the signals that travel at the speed of light. The receiver calculates the distance to the satellites by determining the time it takes for the emitted signal to reach the GPS receiver. Once a time is determined for at least four of the GPS satellites, the receiver can pinpoint your location in three dimensions, including latitude, longitude, and altitude.
While many Americans are literally lost without their GPS devices, it has also become a ubiquitous convenience for law enforcement agencies. For example, in 2009, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) introduced a prototype “smart” police car. This smart cruiser is the most advanced of its kind, equipped with license plate cameras, computers, a GPS projectile launcher, and even a heat detector in the front grill to differentiate between people and animals. The license plate reader can scan and download five to eight thousand license plates per shift. It saves the information it collects and can access the information instantaneously through the computer system installed in the car. If a stolen or wanted vehicle comes up in the scan, the license plate reader will automatically label the vehicle as a threat and a camera will take a colored picture of the vehicle and send the GPS coordinates of the vehicle to the police station.
In addition to the high tech license plate readers and cameras, the smart car is equipped with GPS-enabled projectiles. The device is similar to a dart launcher and is near the front bumper of the vehicle. The projectile is three inches in diameter. When engaged, the device shoots the GPS projectile at the target vehicle. The law enforcement agent inside the car arms and fires the projectile. With the aid of a military grade laser, the law enforcement agent can aim with tremendous precision. Once attached to the target, the projectiles have the capability of tracking the target in real time for days. The LAPD is currently shopping for a manufacturer willing to mass produce these cars in order to make them available to law enforcement agencies across the country.
Frankly, given how attached Americans have become to their cell phones—and how easily trackable, as a result, it’s a wonder the government even bothers with any other technologies. Currently, cell phone service providers have the ability to pinpoint a phone’s location to an area as small as a city block. (It should come as no surprise that government agents have wasted little time in adding this technology to their bag of tricks, employing GPS on multiple occasions to track individuals without establishing probable cause or obtaining a search warrant.) Most corporate cell phone providers can also store vast amounts of data containing the location of the cell phone and its specific uses (such as the contents of text messages and websites visited), sometimes even in real time.
In an effort to handle the massive amount of requests from federal agents for access to the GPS data, several cell phone providers now offer automated services for obtaining internal cell phone data. Sprint Nextel, for example, has an entire website devoted to cell phone records that law enforcement officers can access. Called the Mobile Locator, the system allows law enforcement to access information, such as call history, without a search warrant, thus completely bypassing the protections afforded us by the Fourth Amendment. It also enables government agents to monitor an individual in real-time on a zoomable, online map.
A recent study by Indiana University reveals the extent to which government agents are making use of this resource. According to the study, over a period of 13 months, Sprint responded to eight million requests from law enforcement for GPS data. In addition to GPS data, Sprint also stores IP data and URL web history for a two-year period, which it also makes available to law enforcement upon request.
Intelligence and law enforcement agencies insist that a search warrant is not required to access the information because cell phone users, having disclosed their information to a third party, have no reasonable expectation of privacy anyhow. All the while, the American people remain clueless about the existence of these databases, the ease with which law enforcement agents can access them, and their overall loss of privacy.
The bottom line: there really is no place to hide in the American Oceania. As Judge Kozinski concludes:
You can preserve your anonymity from prying eyes, even in public, by traveling at night, through heavy traffic, in crowds, by using a circuitous route, disguising your appearance, passing in and out of buildings and being careful not to be followed. But there’s no hiding from the all-seeing network of GPS satellites that hover overhead, which never sleep, never blink, never get confused and never lose attention. Nor is there respite from the dense network of cell towers that honeycomb the inhabited United States. Acting together these two technologies alone can provide law enforcement with a swift, efficient, silent, invisible and cheap way of tracking the movements of virtually anyone and everyone they choose. Most targets won’t know they need to disguise their movements or turn off their cell phones because they’ll have no reason to suspect that Big Brother is watching them.

West Virginia’s fall forest fire season starts October 01, 2010 and runs through December 31, 2010.
During the months of October, November and December, all outdoor burning is prohibited from 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM throughout the state.
However, for the eight counties of the state’s Eastern Panhandle an outdoor burning ban is still in effect and supersedes the legislated fall fire season requirements. Those eight counties where all outdoor burning is prohibited are Berkeley, Grant, Hampshire, Hardy, Jefferson, Mineral, Morgan and Pendleton. This ban, issued by Governor Joe Manchin in early September, prohibits all fires built for camping, the burning of debris and for warming purposes. Severe lack of rain and drought conditions prompted the governor’s proclamation.
“I have many reasons to be concerned going into this fall fire season,” said Director/State Forester Randy Dye. “We have severe drought conditions and thus extreme fire danger in the Eastern Panhandle. Other areas of the state are also dry, and when you add moderate to high winds, warm temperatures and low humidity levels to the equation a very bad fire season is a real possibility.”
Residents in counties outside the Eastern Panhandle may burn vegetative materials, including brush, leaves and limbs, but only after 4:00 PM. Anyone who conducts outdoor burning must supervise the fire until it is completely extinguished, create a 10-foot perimeter around the fire and complete all burning before 7:00 AM. Dye suggests keeping a rake, shovel and water source nearby in case a fire does escape, but he warns that if a fire breaks out into the woods, you should call 911 immediately.
In the case of an escaped fire, the person who set it is liable for the costs of fighting the fire, and also may face a misdemeanor charge and a fine up to $300. Landowners whose property is damaged by another person’s fire may seek damages in civil court from the person who set the fire.
“Payment for reimbursement for suppression costs is not an empty threat,” Dye said. “This past April we had a landowner who accidently allowed his fire to escape and it went on to burn acreage on 25 different landowners’ properties.”
The landowner, who Dye declined to name, paid nearly $10,000 for the costs associated with extinguishing the fire. Ten local Volunteer Fire Departments responded to the fire and six Division of Forestry personnel were required to lead on-site suppression activities.
Already the state has seen 62 forest fires since July 1 and more than 200 acres burned.
The income gap between the richest and poorest Americans grew last year to its widest amount on record as young adults and children in particular struggled to stay afloat in the recession.
The top-earning 20% of Americans - those making more than $100,000 each year - received 49.4% of all income generated in the U.S., compared with the 3.4% earned by those below the poverty line, according to newly released census figures.
That ratio of 14.5-to-1 was an increase from 13.6 in 2008 and nearly double a low of 7.69 in 1968.
A different measure, the international Gini index, found U.S. income inequality at its highest level since the Census Bureau began tracking household income in 1967.
The U.S. also has the greatest disparity among Western industrialized nations.
At the top, the wealthiest 5% of Americans, who earn more than $180,000, added slightly to their annual incomes last year, census data show.
Families at the $50,000 median level slipped lower.
“Income inequality is rising, and if we took into account tax data, it would be even more,“ said a University of Wisconsin-Madison professor who specializes in poverty. “More than other countries, we have a very unequal income distribution where compensation goes to the top in a winner-takes-all economy.“
Lower-skilled adults ages 18 to 34 had the largest jumps in poverty last year as employers kept or hired older workers for the dwindling jobs available.
The declining economic fortunes have caused many unemployed young Americans to double-up in housing with parents, friends and loved ones, with potential problems for the labor market if they don’t get needed training for future jobs.
A senior policy analyst at The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, agreed that census data show families of all income levels had tepid earnings in 2009, with poorer Americans taking a larger hit. “It’s certainly going to take a while for people to recover,“ he said.
The findings are part of a broad array of U.S. census data being released this month that highlight the far-reaching impact of the recent economic meltdown.
The effects have ranged from near-historic declines in U.S. mobility and birth rates to delayed marriage and the first drop in the number of illegal immigrants in two decades.
The census figures also come amid heated political debate in the run-up to the November 02, 2010 elections over whether Congress should extend expiring Bush-era tax cuts.
President Barack Obama wants to extend the tax cuts for individuals making less than $200,000 and joint filers making less than $250,000; Republicans are pushing for tax cuts for everyone, including wealthy Americans.
The 2009 census tabulations, which are based on pre-tax income and exclude capital gains, are adjusted for household size where data are available.
Prior analyses of after-tax income made by the wealthiest 1% compared to middle- and low-income Americans have also pointed to a widening inequality gap, but only reflect U.S. data as of 2007.
Among the 2009 findings:
• The poorest poor are at record highs. The share of Americans below half the poverty line - $10,977 for a family of four - rose from 5.7% in 2008 to 6.3%. It was the highest level since the government began tracking that group in 1975.
• The poverty gap between young and old has doubled since 2000, due partly to the strength of Social Security in helping buoy Americans 65 and over. Child poverty is now 21% compared with 9% for older Americans. In 2000, when child poverty was at 16%, elderly poverty stood at 10%.
• Safety nets are helping fill health gaps. The%age of children covered by government-sponsored health insurance such as Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program jumped to 37%, or 27.6 million, from 24% in 2000. That helped offset steady losses in employer-sponsored insurance.
The 2009 poverty level was set at $21,954 for a family of four, based on an official government calculation that includes only cash income. It excludes noncash aid such as food stamps.
A senior researcher at the left-leaning Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, noted the effects of expanded government programs in cushioning the impact of skyrocketing unemployment. For example, the Census Bureau estimates that 3.6 million people would have been lifted above the poverty line if food stamps were counted - a number that would have reduced the 2009 poverty rate from the official 14.3% to 13.2%.
A University of Michigan public policy professor, said while the U.S. has developed policies to combat poverty, it has trouble addressing ever-widening income inequality - even with a growing federal deficit and previous warnings by former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan about soaring executive pay.
An Associated Press-GfK Poll this month found that by 54% to 44%, most Americans support raising taxes on the highest U.S. earners. Still, many congressional Democrats have expressed wariness about provoking the 44% minority so close to Election Day.
