“Hope Heads Les Roark’s
~ Cleveland County Campaign
James R. Hope, 35,
Polkville farmer and apple
grower and president of the
Upper Cleveland County
Chamber of Commerce, will
head Les Roark’s Cleveland
County campaign for a seat
in the U.S. House of
Representatives from the
10th Congressional District.
A Democrat, Roark, native
of Grover, seeks the seat now
held by Republican Jim
Broyhill, who is a candidate
for the U.S. Senate seat being
vacated by John East.
Hope is a lifelong resident
of Polkville, son of Mr. and
Mrs. Calvin Hope. He is also
a wholesale dealer in hor-
‘ticulture chemicals for a five
county area. He is a 1972
graduate of N.C. State
University and is married to
a Casar schoolteacher and
they are parents of two
“Jim Hope is simply a good
citizen,” said Roark in an-
nouncing that he will chair
his Cleveland County cam-
poly for Congress. ‘‘He is
onest, works hard, loves our
country and our institutions
of government. More ime -
tantly, perhaps, he is willing
to roll up his sleeves and
work to make things better.
He is fully committed to this
campaign and I am delighted
to have his considerable
talents and abilities involved
in this effort.”
Hope said, ‘“‘Les Roark
relates well to the average
citizen. He grew up on a farm
and has broad experience in
business and an outstanding
record in public service at the
city, county, state, and na-
tional levels. He has strong
convictions about honesty
and openness in government
and has the ability to find
common sense solutions to
most problems. I feel Les will
make an outstanding
member of Congress for the
people of the 10th District and
am pleased to be able to help
in his campaign.”

Seat Belt Law Good
North Carolina’s mandatory seat belt law went into effect
in October of 1985. Already many hundreds of North Caroli-
nians are alive and healthy to enjoy this new year because the
General Assembly passed that law.
The mandatory seat belt law is as fine a step as our state
has taken in a long time to show that we care for each other.
» From a hard, cold economic standpoint, an individual’s
decision not to wear a seat belt affects all of us through in-
creased payments for social security, medical care and lost
job productivity. On that basis alone, society has a legitimate
interest in increasing use of seat belts. Bhan
* From a very human standpoint, the enclosed letter from a
mother who lost her son because he wasn’t wearing a seat
belt makes it clear again how an individual’s decision has
deep and long lasting impact on many others.
Some examples of benefits from use of seat belts since the
Near Hendersonville a car overturned and landed in two
feet of water. The driver, with a seat belt on, remained con-
scious and was able to pu) the unconscious passenger, who
was not wearing a seat belt, out of the car and water.
In Wilmington there are two recent stories. In one accident,
a mother and her four children—all belted—survived. In |
another, a mother credited publicity about the law as a
reason her daughter and three other teens were wearing belts
Bill Belk, a candidate for U.S. Senate, never wore a seat
belt until the new law. He survived a serious accident because
“he was wearing his seat belt.s
Amy Pickett writes saying the law was a ‘‘lifesaver for my
Thus, thanks to the law and seat belts, these people and
[any others will be able to continue on as mothers and
children, as community leaders and friends to others. Those
are our greatest rewards for passage of the law.

a Presidential candidate.
In December 1959, Mr.
Reese was an insurance
broker and Democratic ac-
tivist in Huntington, W.Va.
One day a representative of
John F. Kennedy’s campaign
