St Patrick’s To
Serve Dinner
To The Needy
By Jeri Harvey
Post Staff Writer
For the second year in a row
the Vincent de Paul Society of
St Patrick's Cathedral will
serve dinner to the needy of
the city on Christmas Day.
Equally as important, they
will seek to nurture the spirit
of the lonely and friendless by
offering fellowship and an
atmosphere of love, according
to A! Kopka, president of the
16 member society. .
The meal, consisting of tur
key. corn, green beans, rice
and scores of homemade des
serts, will be 10a.m. -5 p.m. in
the church's school cafeteria,
1125 Buchanan St.
There will be free gifts,
entertainment by the Char
lotte-Mecklenburg Youth
Council and a lot of good
conversation.
oume ui uie year round
projects coordinated by the
Vincent de Paul Society of St.
Patrick’s and sponsored and
carried out by the church’s
members, include working
with the prison-release pro
gram, helping needy families,
working in hospitals, prisons
and coordinating project with
other public service organiza
tions.
Describing St. Patrick’s as
“an inner-city parish, Kopka
said the church feels a respon
sibility to the whole communi
ty. regardless to religious
boundaries.
Hoping to draw twice the
number of guests that attend
ed last year (300), the society
is ek tending an - invitation
through the media to all who
care to come. There will be
limited bus service.
Reservations for the free
dinner may be made by call
ing Sister Bessie McCarthy at
334-1958 Monday through Fri
day until December 23. For
more information about the
dinner or the Vincent de Paul
Society, call A1 Kopka, 527

Mecklenburg County Commissioners Move Was Hard Core Politics
d) oacquit- i.evister
Post Staff Writer
Much i or little i has been
said of the recent change of
guard among our county com
missioners Yet, to date, no
analytical perspective has be
en spouted
What transpired on Monday,
De^^g^^^^h^County
v vimiiisMun vnamoers was a
case of hard core politics
Nothing illegal, just amoral.
Of the five commissioners
participating in the scenario,
only one walked away a win
ner
Mrs. Hair lost her seat as
the commission chairperson
Ed Peacock supported a loser
and thus gained no immediate
favor Pete Foley became cha
irperson by adverse posses
sion, thus alienating segments
of the voting populus. Bob
W alton became vice chairman
under a stigmed cloud of
oubious vote bargaining. And,
who, but Booe, is left?
Let's theorize about what
happened. Dissension began
surfacing on every front The
need to maintain Strieker con
trol became an issue. The
yearly election date approa
ches to elect a chairperson.
Sides began to take shape
Suppose amid this body the
re existed persons of high
personal ambitions who saw
this moment as a chance for
advancement (however hack
neve).
This charade, though per
haps not planned in every
detail, could conceivably been
orchestrated by an astute yet
shrewd mind. Unaware of pos
sible manipulation, the wheels
began its motion.
Further suppose the deter
mining vote in this election
decides to seek a return for his
nod. The issue then would
become who can deliver the
necessary return votes. The
evidence indicates that Mrs
Hair could not.
If suppositions one and two
will withstand scrutiny the
hypothetical theorem could
read: Liz Hair's mo6t vocal
opponent helps get her ousted
and simultaneously helps ele
vate his most ardent adversa
ry to a very precarious posi
tion
