Forum—In a week, on Tuesday night from 7-9pm, our church (www.uufn.org) is hosting a forum for candidates for
Countdown—The mid-term election is 21 days away. What will you do in the next 3 weeks to help Democrats reclaim the state House, the US House, and the US Senate? Do you have time to volunteer? Can you contribute some money to pay for signs, literature, advertisements? Do you have a yard in which to put up a sign? Times a wasting!
The New Castle Democratic Party is holding literature drops on October 19, 21, 24, 26, and 28, and phone banking on October 17, 23, and 29. For more information, contact Kristin Dwyer at email@example.com Kristin also has a signup sheet for many, many opportunities from November 4th to 7th, which I have attached. If you are able to help out, provide your interest and availability to Kristin. By the way, ‘drive time visibility’ is going to areas with high traffic during rush hour and displaying effective campaign signage (and a smile).

Yes, I know that Democrats Tom Carper, Jack Markell, Terry Schooley, and Stephanie McClellan are running for election. I don’t consider any of them to be in danger of losing (two have no opponents), so I’d rather direct my efforts elsewhere.
Current Expectations—The New York Times current projects that the election will bring 49 Republicans in the Senate, 48 Democrats, with 3 undecided races (including
Contributions—If you haven’t yet contributed to a candidate’s campaign yet, why not? They only have three more weeks to get their message out, and this costs money. You can use the email addresses above to ask about contributing. It will be greatly appreciated. Last night I read one person explain that they voted ‘because Pat Robertson votes’. Why do I contribute to campaigns? Because Rush Limbaugh contributes to campaigns.
Films—My church (www.uufn.org) is running a film series. We will be showing TransAmerica at 7pm on Saturday 11/4, and What the Bleep Do We Know on Sunday November 19th at noon (there is a chance that we’ll show Iraq for Sale in its place).
Global Water Needs--Troubled Waters, an hour-long documentary, will be aired nationally on ABC television beginning on October 22, 2006. It portrays some of the challenges faced by people and nations everywhere with regard to access to clean, safe drinking water and adequate sanitation. The film addresses the increasing privatization of water resources around the world and raises disturbing questions about who has access to this precious resource. "Water is a gift from God and a human right," affirms executive producer Wally Ryan Kuroiwa, "not a commodity available only to those who can pay for it."
