4E4=70??84AC0??8=6 Thank you for your article on EFT (â€œHappy Tapping,â€? Green Zone, Nov. 4). I can personally attest to the power of emotional freedom techniques (EFT). As a psychologist, I have helped people overcome childhood traumas, panic attacks, phobias, fear of public speaking, financial issues and much, much more, using this simple meridian-based tapping technique. In fact, I was just at the Grand Canyon a few weeks ago, and helped a woman with a lifelong fear of heights walk out onto Matherâ€™s Point, with its breathtaking views, after only 10 minutes of tapping. I wish I could show you the picture I took of her smiling face, as she leaned over the railing, taking in the spectacular views! While EFT is an extremely powerful technique, people vary in how many sessions they may need. I myself overcame overwhelming obstacles, after being hit by a drunk motorcyclist and being declared completely disabled, by using EFT. It helped me overcome my fears and hopelessness, and regain my sense of optimism and possibilities.

340A<A?A4B834=C Dear Mr. President: These are hard times for many, maybe even most of our fellow countrymen/ women. I know that youâ€™re aware of it, and I believe that you care about us, but we all need
reminders, especially when weâ€™re inundated with other serious, vital concerns. You, and by extension we, inherited a helluva mess comparable in scope and difficulty only to a few other times in our nationâ€™s history: our fight for independence, our Civil War and WW II. We face two ongoing wars and a Middle East in turmoil; two very dangerous nuclear hot spots that must be addressed; an economy so destroyed and disabled it harks back to the Great Depression; a climate-change crisis that will affect billions of lives, and perhaps the life of the planet itself to sustain many of its species. Those are just a few of the top choices from column A. What I want to bring your attention back to is that yourâ€”ourâ€”country is hurting. This country is drowning in a sea of unemployment, lost homes, healthcare-cost bankruptcies, credit-interest bankruptcies and legal usury that has so stunned the once burgeoning middle class as to threaten its very existence. What was once the pride of our economic machine is and has been dwindling since the supplyside, free market, deregulation-banner-waving gurus came on the scene. And because of Wall Street and the banking industryâ€™s notorious misdeeds, the threat to our middle-class economic stability is exacerbated and could prove fatal. But itâ€™s not enough to stabilize the banks and certain giant investment corporations, because as a result of their failures and immoral activities, tens of millions of people are suffering or face imminent economic demise. People are fearful and angry, and rightly so. This dire situation has to be addressed, and it has to happen now. Healthcare reform, as important as it is, is not going to put people back to work, and itâ€™s not going to stop home foreclosures. Only jobs and programs that create huge numbers of jobs will alleviate the enormous suffering and get this country back on safe economic ground. The wars can wait. But those without jobs, the people who canâ€™t afford healthcare or to help their kids advance through good schools and higher educationâ€”they canâ€™t wait. First things first, sir. Turn the economy around by getting people back to work. You donâ€™t offer a hungry person rhetoric or rationales. Your nation needs jobs first and help not losing their homes. Put the resources, i.e., money, there. Feed those needs first, Mr. Obama, and the rest will fall into place.

4867C30HB0F44: Workers choose not to use the local hiring hall for a number of reasons, crowding downtown Graton each morning in the hopes of getting a dayâ€™s paid labor.
New no â€˜Street Hiringâ€™ signs in Graton point to continued conflict between concept of hiring hall and reality of day laborers By Dani Burlison
he presence of migrant workers in the west Sonoma County town of Graton has a long history, beginning with Chinese immigrants at the turn of the 20th century and then again when the black roller clouds of the dustbowl forced farmers west during the Great Depression. Unlike the unemployed men in urban areas who sold apples on street corners to support their families, men who found themselves migrating west to places like Graton were most likely waiting on street corners for work picking the apples that were for sale elsewhere. A perfect destination when whatâ€™s needed at the end of the week is a fancy cocktail and quick escape from the grind,
Graton has evolved vastly over the last decade. What was once considered a roughand-tumble backwoods town was transformed into a wine country hot spot with the help of developer Orrin Thiessen and his Downtown Graton Revitalization project. Nestled at an intersection of Sonoma Countyâ€™s vineyards, apple orchards and redwood trees, Gratonâ€™s downtown now provides visitors three blocks of awardwinning dining, gallery openings and local businesses. Despite the outward appearance of the townâ€™s relative calm, however, is the behind-the-scenes, hushed murmur of its residents, discussing what to do with the problem of day laborersâ€™ continued presence on the streets which, some argue, clashes greatly with the charming image Graton would like to maintain.
During recent morning visits, a dozen men casually stood on street corners, appearing to be patiently waiting for employers to stop and offer them a dayâ€™s work. Just down Bowen Street, however, the majority of day laborers congregated at the grounds of the Graton Day Labor Center (GDL) in hopes of connecting with local employers through the services that the center has been providing, with community support, for over five years. According to the townâ€™s community e-letter, that some workers do not utilize the new centerâ€”which recently celebrated its two-year anniversary at the permanent siteâ€”and continue to â€œloiterâ€? in this otherwise quiet town has been the focus of concern. After many adamantly rejected the idea of handing out cards & %
