By Judy Hoelzeman Parish members involved in Grant County 4-H awards Young members of Holy Cross Parish in Sheridan were recently involved in the Grant County 4-H Clubs awards cer- emony. Gretchen Hall and Joel Hess pre- sented awards to the 4-H Outstanding Leader and Rookie of the Year, as well as district and state achievement awards. Both also received officer pins and achievement awards, Hess for citizenship and Hall for clothing. Expectant mothers and their children benefit from program "Motherhood" a service of Blessed Sac- rament Parish in Jonesboro, provides clothing and other help to pregnant mothers and their children. After salvag- ing two big boxes of heavy cotton denim that were to be thrown away by a factory, the group completed a sewing project which yielded 13 pairs of maternity jeans, 13 pairs of children's jeans and jumpers and tops. According to Agatha Tarver, there is still denim fabric left. Tarver's son-in-law, a fabric purchaser, offered her the fabric. She pre-cut the jeans, copied the instructions, then printed a bulletin notice asking parishio- ners to pick up and sew up one of the kits. Tarver said about eight people re- sponded. The group has received a sec- ond fabric donation and is now working on sewing maternity tops. Tarver said that Motherhood wants to encourage moth- ers to give birth to their children by pro- viding them with clothing and other re- sources. For more information, call Tarver, 932-5254. College students receive stipends from parish The Social Concerns Committee of Our Lady of the Holy Souls Parish in Little Rock recently awarded $1,000 in stipends to college freshmen who were active in the parish Catholic Youth Ministry. The stipends, to be used for textbooks, were awarded to Emily Eden Callahan, Sarah Elizabeth Lang, Kristi Hart and Maggie Mclntyre. continued from page 1 *m Network, Operation Rescue and their fob lowers illegally conspired to dose abortion clinics and benefited financially from doing so. NOW seeks prosecution of the protest- ers under laws intended to control orga- nized crime. Scheidler and his supporters contended that in order to be prosecuted under the anti-racketeering statutes, there had to be proof of economic gain. But the court dis, agreed, saying that nowhere in the RICO statute is there any indication that an eco- nomic motive is required. Lower courts that ruled in favor of Scheidler overlooked the fact that while certain activities may not benefit the pro- testers financially, they still may drain money from bufinesses like the clinics, said the opinion written by Chief Justice w'flliam Rehnquist. In a separate concurring opinion, Jus- tices David Souter and Anthony Kennedy said the ruling does not bar First Amend- ment challenges to the apph'cation of RICO. Proving economic motive is unnecessary "oecause legitimate freespeech claims may be raised and addressed in individual RICO cases as they arise," wrote Souter. "Accord- ingly, it is importantto stress that nothing in the court's opinion precludes a RICO defendant from raising the Fast Amend- ment in its defense in a particular case." Sourer went on to say conduct that oth- erwise might amount to extortion under RICO may well be fully protected under the Fast Amendment- Souter added that he had no view on the possibility of a Ftrst Amendment claim by Scheidler and his co- respondents, but warned courts that apply RICO to bear in mind that Fast Amend- ment interests could be at stake. Just three days before the NOW vs. Schek//er ruling the court agreed to take a, case in which anti-abortion protesters chal- lenged a judge's order prohibiting demon- , strations near an abortion clinic in Melbourne, Fla. In that case, a state trial court judge re- quired that antiabortion protesters stay at least 36 feet away from a clinic or face fines of up to $500. The judge also barred pro- testers from approaching patients within 300 feet of the clinic and banned picketing within 300 feet of the homes of clinic staff. A federal appeals court in Atlanta struck down the order, but the Florida Supreme Court upheld its constitutionality.
