God Bless. November declared National Family Caregivers Month President George W. Bush has declared November as National Family Caregivers Month. Millions of Americans make extraordinary efforts every day to care for loved ones who are elderly, chronically ill, or dis- abled. These caregivers make many sacrifices to improve the lives of their loved ones. Through their love, dedication, and courage, these compassion- ate children, parents, spouses, grandparents, and extended family members strengthen and preserve the importance of family and reflect the true character of our Nation and community. The Bush Administration is supporting family caregivers in their efforts to provide comfort to their loved ones. The National Family Caregiver Support Program, managed by the Administration on Aging of the Department of Health and Human Services, gives family caregivers counseling, information, respite care, and supplemental services. To date, several families in the community surrounding the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma have taken advantage of the Tribe's Caregiver Program and have used it to provide care for their loved ones. Our salute goes out to these care- giver families this month and throughout the year! For more information on how to take advantage of the Tribe's program contact Linda Big Soldier, Caregiver Program Coordinator, 405/547-2402. l)atabases available the public You may access the following online databases and catalogs through the Library's website at www.t-w.lib.ok.us (adult services/online databases) or through the Oklahoma Depart- ment of Libraries website, www.odl.state.ok.us.

Lucas offers spring Washington internships OKLAHOMA CITY -- U.S. but applications must be "lhe young people in the Third Congressional District inter- ested in government to gain valuable work experience as interns in one of his congres- sional offices. Lucas is now accepting applications for college-age Oklahoma students to work next spring as interns in either his Washington, D.C. or Oklahoma offices. "There's no better opportu- nity for young people inter- ested in the legislative pro- cess than through firsthand experiences as a congressio- nal intern," Lucas said. Along with assisting staff members with general admin- istrative tasks such as direct- ing phone calls and distrib- uting mail. students selected as interns will also have the opportunity to accompany staff to congressional com- mittee meetings and con- stituent events, give Capitol VIP tours to Oklahoma constituents, and assist staff with legislative or constituent research projects. "Our interns are an impor- tant part of my staff," Lucas said. "We rely on them to help keep the office running smoothly and to represent our state to visitors of our congressional office." There is still time to apply, I I I Thank you! On behalf of the Perkins Tryon 4-H and FFA students, parents, and Ag Boosters we would like to express our appreciation to the individuals, businesses, .and commun,0000or,ourcont,nu,00 support of the 4-H and FFA I! and application forms can be viewed and downloaded from www.house.gov/lucas. Or to receive a Washington internship application by mail, contact the Washing- ton Congressional office at (202) 225-5565. To receive an Oklahoma internship application, call the Cana- dian County office at (405) 373-1958. "It's a great opportunity in either office," Lucas said. "In Washington, interns experi- ence legislation's progres- sion - from the Member's office, to the committee room, to the House floor. In the Oklahoma offices, students can see firsthand the different ways a member of congress works to forge a positive working relationship with his or her constituents. "Being an Intern is the pre- ferred first step in the career route of a legislative aide. Most of my staff, including all of my Washington staff, got their start as an intern." The Spring internship session lasts for 14 weeks from January to early May. If necessary the office can accommodate students' other internships or work respon- sibilities. Along with their applica- tion form, students must submit a resume and two letters of recommendation. Although the internship is an unpaid position, students are encouraged to contact their college advisor to inquire about receiving course credit or financial assistance in exchange for their service and learning experience in the office. More information about Frank Lucas' internship program is available on his website, or potential interns can call the Washington or Canadian County offices and ask to speak with the Internship Coordinator.
