     In about a month, Outagamie county children who are abused and neglected
will have someone acting in their best interests.  Court-Appointed Special
Advocates are trained to work with the child and family in court-related matters.
     There are 15 trained advocates, all of whom have undergone rigorous
background checks, who will be assigned to 15 children.  Two of them, Susan
Sykes and Mitch Vesaas, are anxious to get started.
     CASA Executive Director Maria Turner will make the assignments to insure the
advocate is matched correctly with the child.
     Judge John DesJardins, a strong supporter of the program, says advocates
reportiing to the court will help judges make decisions in the best interest
of the child.
