    Union celebrates Labor Day - By Erin Murphy, Peoria Journal Star, IL
    The purpose of the United Auto Workers Local 974's Labor Day family picnic Saturday was to celebrate labor unions and the hard-working individuals who comprise them.

    But several other issues weighed on the minds of those in attendance - specifically, Hurricane Katrina and staggering gas prices at the gas pumps.
    ===========
    'I'm sure it's on people's minds,' said East Peorian Don Barker, a Caterpillar Inc. employee. 'They're down there looking for food and water, and we're trying to celebrate.'
