(Herald photo by Jon Sherman) Volunteers To Help Children In County Foster Care Continued from Page One care are the second or third generation to be served in this manner. How Does It Work? A CASA volunteer is a trained community member who is appointed by a juvenile or family court judge to speak for children who are brought before the court. They are strictly volunteers from any walk of life: teachers, laborers, cashiers, ministers, bankers, attorneys, nurses, etc. As a child advocate, the CASA volunteer has three main responsibilities: 1.

To serve as a fact-finder for the fudge thoroughly researching the -background of his or her assigned Each volunteer has only ONE 'child's case works on. 2. To speak for the child in the courtroom, representing the child's best interests. Since the case is reviewed every six months, that's. how often the volunteer comes before the court to testify to what facts has gathered.

The volunteer may be cross-examined by other lawyers who may be in court representing the parent or the Children and Youth Services department. 3. To continue to act as a "watchdog" for the child during the life of the case, ensuring that it is brought to a swift and appropriate conclusion. The CASA concept is based on the commitment that every child has the right to a safe, permanent home. The volunteer becomes an official part of the judicial proceedings, working alongside attorneys and social workers as appointed officer of the court.

The CASA volunteer speaks exclusively for the child's best interests. The volunteer talks with the child, parents and family members, neighbors, school officials, doctors, foster parents and others involved in the child's background who might have facts about the case. The volunteer reviews all records and documents pertaining to the child. Then the volunteer sits down with the CASA director who helps prepare an appropriate court report. This report is given to the child's guardia (attorney) and to the judge.

"Become Involved PROTECT is sponsoring the first informal public meeting on CASA on Tuesday, March 23, at 7 p.m. in Courtroom 1 at the Crawford County Courthouse. Speaking will be Marge McConahy, program director for Erie County CASA; Judge Gordon R. Miller; and Joel Tuzynski, director of Crawford County Children and Youth Services. County-wide involvement is very much needed.

Those involved with this project are looking for persons who would be willing to serveon the CASA board. The present steering committee includes Judge Miller, Tuzynski, Gallant, McMunn and Beatty of PROTECT, Sylvia Hood and Deb Ostrofsky. They are looking for CASA volunteers who will be thoroughly trained before the program becomes operational sometime later this year. And they are looking for groups or organizations who would like to hear more about PROTECT CASA. According to Gallant and McMunn, they would be happy to come to the Titusville area to speak on either subject.

Approximately 100 attended the PUC hearing in Erie city council chambers. The 12 speakers told PUC Administrative law Judge Louis G.

The increase would boost the average annual residential heating bill 12.2 percent, from $804 to $902 for a home using 135,000 cubic feet of natural gas per year. At the hearing Springirth stated that the PUC should not grant NFG a gas cost rate increase because wellhead down." prices for gas are "trending Springirth pointed out that in October 1992, major interstate pipeline companies paid about $2.69 pr thousand cubic fect of gas from producers.
