We will be happy to provide a speaker on se- vere weather safety for a school or group meeting. It is especially important that all school officials understand the severe local storm warning service and the value of regular torna- do drills. The primary purpose of the National Weather Ser- vice is to warn of impend- ing hazardous 'weather. However, a warning may not be enough and at times, there will be no advance warning when we are dealing with something as volatile as tornadoes. Storm spotters, radar and satellite reports all help in our efforts to issue advance warnings. But, there is no guarantee that warn- ings will be issued for all severe storms. Also, the advance warning time is, at best, measured in minutes. Being prepared is the key to success in dealing with severe thun- derstorms and tornadoes.

Beginning on Jan. 1, 1990, men who were re- quired to register with Selective Service in 1982 will be turning 26 and will no longer be eligible for induction should a draft be reinstituted. Selective Service does not have the authority to accept late registrations after a man reaches his 26th birthday. The Selective Service System warned that with few exceptions, a man who fails to register before turn- ing 26 will permanently forfeit his eligibility for certain benefits, such as federal student aid, job training, and most fed- eral employment in addi- tion to facing possible prosecution as a felon. Some states also require registration for state stu- dent aid, entrance to state- supported colleges and uni- versities, state employ- ment and permission to practice law. Men age 18 and through 25 who have not yet regis- tered can avoid the risk of prosecution and loss of benefits by registering promptly at any local post office. Failure to register is a felony punishable by-a fine of up to $250,000, up to five years in prison or both. Over 14 million men, age 18 through 25 are cur- rently registered with Selective Service. Of those, 376,384 are from Georgia. , Heat Sealed 600 to 850 / resists Cold Cranking Amps vibration for of Starting Power. long life. Ubpto 2 hours and minutes of _...
