PAGE 4A - The Malakoff News - Friday, July 28, 2006 Citizen changes vote Dear Editor, I have had a neurological disorder for over 25 years. The prospect of wider embryonic stem cell research has offered the possibility of relief for those like me sometime in the future. It seems an easy enough decision: Use embryos destined to be discarded to try to find ways to help those with otherwise incurable diseases. The argument that these embryos are viable human lives is not valid, since they will be destroyed anyway. Unfortunately, there are those in positions of power who refuse to allow the govern- ment to fund this type of research, in spite of the expressed will of the majority of Americans, including a majority in the Senate and the House of Representatives. I note with sadness and disappointment that Representative Hensarling and Senator Coming helped to stop this promising effort. A change of 4 votes in the Senate and 50 votes in the House would have allowed this law to go into effect. We need a change. That's one reason I will be voting for Charlie Thompson for Representative for my district. Ann White Malakoff erican spirit By Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison Our nation's spirit is captured in the mission of NASA, to ex- to discover and to under- of Space plore, stand. The launch Shuttle Discovery on July 4-the first-ever Fourth of Julylaunch - allowed for a simul- taneous celebration of our past and our future. For 13 days, Discovery's crew confirmed the strength of NASA, and when the shuttle Hutchison of Earth's atmosphere and grav- ity, scientists can conduct experi- ments leading to advancements in areas ranging from fire control to potential souw of energy, as well as medical technologies and physi- ology that will benefit all of us on Earth. NASA has led humankind's explora- tion of space, but also has helped lead in sci- entific exploration of all kinds.

Discovery's six,person crew - a seventh astronaut remained aboard the International Space Station- included mission special- ists Mike Fossum and Stephanie Wdson, who followed in the foot- steps of 39 other brave graduates from Texas colleges and univer- sities to Wavel into space. Spe- cialist Fossum earned an under- graduate degree from Texas A&M and a master's degree from the University of Houston at Clear Lake, while Specialist Wilson earned her master's de- gree from the University of Texas. Space Shuttle Discovery's suc- cessful mission took place in the wake of improved shuttle safety procedures, and the program is now in position to complete the assembly of the International Space Station over the next 18 launches.

In August, the Space Shuttle Atlantis will deliver another major part of the space station slructure, an additional so- lar array to provide more power for scientific experiments. Research conducted on the In- ternational Space Station and on shuttle missions over the past 25 years has proven the benefits of the unique scientific laboratory of space. Freed from the reswaints flora, which will see us replace the Space Shuttle with a new Crew Exploration Vehicle (CEV) that could transport our astronauts to the moon and eventually to Mars. We must continue our crucial leadership in the field of space ex- ploration and scientific research, as well as intelligence gathering and use of satellites for national defense. On July 13, Ijo'med with Sena- tor Barbara Mikulski in passing a bipartisan amendment to provide NASA with emergency appro- priations. This will allow NASA to implement recommendations of the ColumbiaAccident Investiga- tion Board and provide relief for NASA facilities damaged by Hur- ricane Katrina. Vital research was being cut to fund emergency repairs, and this funding will re- store core scientific missions for science. We must keep the dream of ex- ploralionofotlaerworlds alive. With the help of increased funding, NASA can continue to expand our base of scientific knowledge while inspiring Americans - and espe- cially our young people - to go into science professions. Just as mani- fest destiny led American settlers into the West, our thirst for scien- tific knowledge will lead us into the far reaches of space.
