Adjournment The Appel Report I By Staci Appel, State Senator Rebuild Iowa, Eco- nomic Se.arity top my 2009 agenda: During the upcoming 2009 session, I'll focus on strengthening Iowa% economy and help- mg Iowans rebuild their communities after last summer% floods and tor- nadoes. Due to tle national re- cession, thousands of Io- wans are truggling to make ends ,neet. I'm look- ing for wavsto provide more economic security !or families through good- !)aying jobs, energy inde- pendence and a world- lass edu, c,tion for our i,ids. More than 2,300 new green" jobs for Iowans !ave been created in the .ast two years. That's why vmewable and alternative vnergy continue to be im- .ortant paints of Iowa's conomic development lans. There is a biparti- -an push to make Iowa =aergy independent and lore energ efficient. According to the Re- build Iowa Office, more than $1.3 billion has al- ready been approved this year for storm-recovery efforts. In addition to pro- viding matching funds for local governments to re- ceive federal assistance, the state has put $40 mil- lion into the Jumpstart Iowa initiative for homeowners and busi- nesses. However, many Iowans are still piecing their lives back together. To get the job done, I'm working across party lines and en- couraging strong partner- ships with local commu- nities. The 2009 session begins Monda Jan. 12. I welcome your suggestions as I make the difficult decisions nec- essary to maintain a fis- cally responsible state budget. You can call me during the week at the Senate switchboard, 515-281- 3371. On weekends, I can be reached at home, 515- 961-6982. E-mail me at staci.appel@legis.state.ia.us. SUBSCRIBE TODAY!

Making The Most Of Taste Tempters (NAPS)--More sweet taste, less sugar. That's an increas- ingly appealing idea, as the cost of raw sugar is expected to rise in the coming years. One reason is that, more and more, America's other major source of natural sweeteners llcorn--is being devoted to making biofuels. This is likely to force higher the price of such sugary treats as pastries, sodas and snack foods. Fortunately, for everyone with a sweet tooth, there's a sweet solution. New taste amplifi- cation technologies are being developed by American com- panies, including Redpoint Bio, for healthier, better-tast- ing foods, beverages and pharmaceuticals. The idea is to preserve a product's desired sweetness with 30 to 40 per- cent less sugar than is currently used. How sweet is that? Learn more at www.redpointbio.com.
