Sheriff Al Harrison announced this week he will no longer be
operating a "Harrison Hilton" in the Gulf County Jail. "Effective
the first day of June, the Gulf County Jail is going to take on a
new look. It'll be more like the Harrison Boarding House. offering
only room and board to its 'guests'," Sheriff Harrison revealed.
The Sheriff said, '"We're turning over another leaf. We're not
going to coddle our prisoners any longer. From the looks of our
* census, it appears the same ones are coming back again and
again. They seem to like it out here and if we make it a little
more 'primitive' they might think twice before they do something
to cause their return."
NO TOBACCO OR TV
In order to make the jail more 'primitive'. Sheriff Harrison
said that effective June I there will be no more tobacco products
allowed in the jail. '"We're going to 'help' our visitors and guests
to quit chewing, smoking and dipping, 'cold turkey'!" he said.
Sheriff Harrison, himself, has, stopped smoking after many
years of the habit and is now determined to make the jail tobac-
"Not only that," the Sheriff said, "But, we're going to ban all
television sets from the cells where the prisoners are kept. It'll be
a TV-free period in the jail for our inmates for the time they are
here," Harrison said. 'They can have their radios as long as they
listen to them with earphones, but no TV!"
In the past, the Gulf County Jail has allowed the prisoners
inside to pass the time watching TV, as long as they could ob-
tain one. 'The jail has never furnished a TV for the inmates," the
Sheriff said. "Now, they can't even-bring their own to the cells."
AN AUSTERE ENVIRONMENT
"It'll be a no-frills experience 'in the Gulf County Jail from
this moment on. We're going to continue to give them three good
meals a day, a good bed to sleep on and good sanitary facilities,
but otherwise, our prisoners are. going to know they are some-
where other than home," the Sheriff said.
Harrison said he hopes his move will set a pattern for other
jails in Florida- to follow. "I'm sure some of them do the same
thing we are starting, already. I 'just hope the other counties
adopt the same attitude we have here in Gulf County; that jail
should seem like punishment for a person's crimes and not a va-
cation away from work and responsibilities."
Tallahasse Couple and Quincy Man Struck Sunday Afternoon

Sunday just after 'the noon hour,
when a bolt of lightning struck
near the three, jarring them and
burning one of the men.
Richard Hackman, 37, of
Quincy was the most seriously in-
jured of the trio. After the bolt
struck, he was unconsciouss and
suffering convulsions for several
minutes. The other two people,
Bryant and Vickie Beck, of'Talla-

momentarily dazed cbut recovered
in a short while..
The bolt was' said to have
struck 'nearest, Hackman, who
suffered bums about the neck

both his feet. Hackman's feet
were black where ,the electrical

Both the Gulf .County Sher-

injured very bad, though both re-

their bodies and expressed shock

PAGE TWO .-THURSDAY, JUNE 2,1994
We Prayed, Then
MONDAY IS "D" DAY in. the United States; the day the Unit-
ed States observes as the day of the invasion of Europe during
the second World War. Known by the participants as '"The Long-
est Day", it was the lorigest day [as well as the shortest for thou-
sands] in the lives of nearly 375,000 Allied military men. who
took part in the assault which left thousands dead all along a 40
mile stretch of beach in France. ...
Men,were tied down to the beach by machine gun and mor-
tar fire for hours at a time, being chewed up like hamburger be-
fore leadership and desperation set in and the soldiers started to
advance on'the German stronghold.
Paratroopers who were dropped behind the lines to give as-
sistance to the men coming over the beaches, missed their drop*
zone due to fog and clouds-some by as much as several miles.
But the men reorganized and rallied, attacking the Germans
from behind and relieving the beaches churning with men.
BUT ONE OF THE more important parts of the war was tak-
ing place right, here at home. Admittedly, it was considerably
more safe than Omaha, Utah, Gold. Juno or Sword Beaches, but
it, was important to the millions coping with the long and bloody
war at-home. It was important to the ones who had to sit on the
sidelines and wait; loved ones who were dying inside from worry.
At home--on that fateful day--the nation stopped what it
was doing and prayed. The President stopped presiding over the
nation's business and presided over the nation's season of
prayer via radio. Business stopped, the stock -market stopped
trading, professional baseball and horse, racing stopped. Macy's
and Lord & Taylor's closed for the day.'Church bells-even the
Liberty Bell-rang, calling the nation to prayer. The nation DID
pray, fervently, on that fateful day. In Columbus, Ohio, at 7:30
in the evening, all traffic stopped for five minutes, as the occu-
pants of vehicles got in the street and kneeled down for five min-
utes of prayer.
The nation .was doing .the only thing it could to protect the
lives of its sons, husbands and fathers.
THE POINT OF THIS piece is, what would our nation do to-
day in such, a situation if it were to arise? Can we keep it from
arising with our attitude?
We have outlawed prayer to Jehovah God at school func-
tions, in public gatherifigs, at. government events; we have said,
"No more Baccalaureate Services." Reading the Bible can no
longer be tolerated in public gatherings. We would have trouble
with prayer in the stock market today. Stopping all traffic on any
street for five minutes, in order for the vehicle drivers to go to
the Lord in prayer would probably land somebody in jail for ob-
struction of traffic.
And, we wonder why we have so much crime, wars, unrest
and violence in the world, as well as crime in our streets.
During D Day in Europe, miracles were reported every min-
ute along the 40 miles of beach. If it' hadn't been for the "mira-
cles", even military men concede the Allies would have, been
pushed back into the sea.
Prayer worked for D Day; we ignore it now.
IT'S ALL OUT IN THE 6pen and offlTicial, now". A newspaper
stWry by the Associated Press and published in most of the Flori-
da. newspapers has found out, through a poll, that the people of
this state are very angry, disillusioned and concerned about the
state's attention paid to crime, the tide of refugees flooding the
.state, the poor quality of many public schools.and what they see
as eroding values.
The disillusionment has been verified by a survey conducted
by six major newspapers. The survey has revealed that the peo-
ple see the problems as being complicated and some of the elect-
ed leaders can't be trusted to care for anyone but themselves.
IT TOOK A POLL TO show that? If the major newspapers
had to sample the public water with a survey in order to find
that out, they are not very good at sampling the pulse of the
public. Don't these newspapers ever read their "Letters To The
Editor"? Aren't they astute enough, to sift the selfish demands
from the reasonable?
Apparently they .aren't very good feelers of the public pulse

years or so. They have been living in fear, both from the sup-

MY MOUSE DIED 'last week,
right in the middle of the day.. I
was petting it with my right hand
and rubbing its stomach occa-

I have learned since that fatal

have a tendency to die sometimes
with no warning. They're here to-
day at 11:46 and gone today at
11:47. It can be that sudden.
Sometimes their passing can

I began getting upset about a

caust be taught in the state of
Florida. As an educator, I am not
too sure that I wish the good folk
in Tallahassee to be mandating
what must be taught 'in public
schools. I asked myself if the
teaching of the Holocaust is first
mandated by law. to be taught.
what special Interest group will
be next to see that their specific
agenda will also be mandated by
law. It took only a week or so to
find the answer.Now African-
Americah history is afso'going to
-be -mandated by law-to be .tauglit
in the public schools.
Not that either of these two
subjects is unimportant, but I do
think they should be examined in
their proper perspective. After all.
these are the only :two subjects
mandated by law to be taught, all
others remain 'at the discretion of
the instructor. In no particular
order, subjects not mandated by
.law to be taught include: (1)

The purpose of this letter is
to recognize and honor three indi-
viduals, [now deceased], each of
whom had a profound effect on
my life and the lives of many oth-
er boys and girls who grew up in
Port St. Joe during the nineteen
fifties and sixties..
John Simpson, H. W. "Buck"
Griffin and Coach Marion Craig,
each took of their resources and
talents, giving unselfishly of
themselves to guide, encourage,
and protect kids who might have
fallen through society's cracks
without their intervention. Each.
of these men on numerous occa- ;I
sions and without regard for a
'child's family position, has exhib-
ited an unlimited capacity for car-
ing and 'compassion, a willing-
ness to become involved, and to
make an emotional investment in
a kid's life. '.' *
Your community is indeed a
much better place today as a re-
.sult of the contributions and sac-
rifices that these men made for
many of us. As we honor our nat-
ural fathers on this Father's Day.
I hope you will join with me in a
loving and heartfelt "thanks" to
the memory of three wonderful
men who cared.

With a flurry of chickenpox in the area. It might be good to review
some of what we-know now.about the disease-and its management.
A primary case of Varicella-Zoster Virus disease is chickenpox.
Most people are exposed to thIs In childhood and have a relatively une-
ventful Illness.' "
After the primary illness, the virus remains around but dormant. If
the virus becomes activated in later life the person develops shingles.
You will hear about children developing chickenpox after an adult has
shingles --- -same disease.
The incubation period for chickenpox in a susceptible person is
usually 14-16days.'It can be as.early as 11 days or as late as 20 days.
If you know your child has been exposed to chickenpox you begin
watching for signs of symptoms of disease about two weeks after expo-
sure. These signs and symptoms do not usually amount to much a
slight fever and then a few red spots. The spots begin up around. the
head and neck and spread outward and down -along the body extremi-
ties. The skin lesions are red spots about the size of the tips of your lit-
tle fingers. In the center of the red spot is a tiny blister that may not be
obvious unless you look at the red spot at an angle. The spots itch. The
children scratch and shortly there are red crusting sores.
Baths with cornstarch, baking soda. and oatmeal, bave all been
tried to help -the itching. Calomine lotion will often help the itching and
some people find Benadryl by mouth to help. You can keep an older
child occupied by giving him a watercolor brush and letting him paint
the sores with calomine lotion as they itch. This gives him something to
do besides scratch.
People with chickenpox are contagious until they are no longer get-
ting sores and all the lesions are crusted over. Children can return to
activities with all sores crusted, but often they feel strange about doing
so and feel that other children will poke fun at them. They may elect to
remain at home until all the crusts are gone.
Patients with chickenpox should not receive aspirin because there
is an increased Incidence of Reye's Syndrome in chickenpox patients re-
ceiving aspirin. Instead of aspirin, Acetominophen (Tylenol) may be giv-
en for fever or comfort.
Healthy children will usually not have complications after chicken-
pox. Problems can arise in several situations. The baby born to a wom-
an who was ill with chickenpox in the first and early second trimester of
the pregnancy may -be born with several different birth defects. If the
mother develops the disease Just before or just after delivery the baby
can be very ill and some lle. The most common complication of chick-
enpox in adults is pneumonia.
Immunocompromised patients (children being treated for leukemi-
as, cancers, arthritis, and Aids) can become deathly ill with chickenpox.
Fortunately, there are currently treatments that can be used in these
There is currently a vaccine being licensed for use in the United
States. This vaccine was developed and has been used for years in Ja-
pan. The vaccine is anticipated to be licensed soon and we expect chick-
enpox to go the way of diptheria, whooping cough, and tetanus and dis-

leiy killed the snake Monday morning near his home at St. Joe
Beach on Alabama Street. Other snake sightifigs have been re-

children to be on the look-out.
Heat, Humidity Means
Mosquitoes Aren't Far
*Florida's pleasant spring con-
' editions, and showers invariably
give way to summer's hot temper-
atures and high humidity. And
that means Florida's annual mos-
quito season Isnt'far behffid. -
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Bob Crawford Is urging the
public to eliminate mosquito
breeding grounds and reduce
contact with the bothersome pest.
He is asking home owners to
eliminate standing water on their
property to curtail Florida's mos-
quito population and reduce
health risks to humans and ani-
"Cdonditions are right this
year for a bumper crop of mosqui-
toes,", Crawford said. "Since mos-.
quitoes generally don't travel
great distances from their breed-
ing ground, people who eliminate
breeding grounds in their neigh-
borhoods can reduce the likeli-
hood of contracting a mosquito-
Crawford noted that children,
adults over age 55, and people
who spend a,lot of time outdoors
are at greater fisk and should
take special precautions.
.... "Masquitges- can. breedr-_tfta-
very small amount of still -water.
We are urging homeowners to
look around their property and
eliminate sources of standing wa-
ter, such as old tires, trash can
lids, kiddie pools, or birdbaths,"
Crawford noted that a breed
'of mosquito, named the Asian Ti-
ger Mosquito because of its mark-
ings, came into Florida In 1986 in
a boatload of used tires from the
Far East: Because standing water
in improperly discarded or stored
tires is a major breeding ground.
the pest is sometimes called "the
tire mosquito". Unlike many other
strains found ifi Florida. this
mosquito is active during daylight
hours, -so eliminating breeding
grounds is the best defense.
Crawford also is urging own-
ers to vaccinate' their animals
against Eastern Equine Enceph-
alitis, an often-fatal viral disease
that attacks the -nervous system.
of horses. Last year, veterinarians
reported 53 cases of the disease
In Florida. Health officials esti-
mate that three to four times that
number went unreported.
The, Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Servic-
es, which oversees the state's
mosquito control efforts, recom-
mends that people avoid mosqui-
to-plagued areas, particularly at
night, reduce mosquito breeding
grounds, wear protective clothing,
and use insect repellents.
By Dr. Charles Mahan, State
Each year in Florida, more
than one-fourth of 'our infants
and preschool children do not re-
ceive all the iitiiimizamtions they
need by their second birthday. In
1993, only 73 percent of Florida's
two-year-old children were ade-
quately immunized, leaving more
than 50,000 children vulnerable
to vaccine-preventable diseases
such as measles, muimps, rubel-
la, pertussis, diphtheria, polio
and hepatitis B. The sLite and."
national goal for the year 1996 is
to increase to 90 percent' the
'number of children fully immu-
nized by age two. .
Part of the reason for low im-
munization levels among infants .
and preschool children is compla-
cency. No longer do we see chil-
dren trapped in iron lungs or lug-
ging heavy braces, and because
we do not routinely witness the
devastating consequences of vac-
.cine-preventable diseases, there
is a tendency to believe that these
diseases are no linger'a threat.
This is 'not true. ,.Vaccine-
preventable diseases, still pose a
significant threat to infants and'
preschool children. The, cost of
failing to immunize children can-
be death, even today.
What '. parents can do:
*Parents can keep immunizations
records on hands,-keep up with
scheduled iImmniunizations and al-
ways take records to the doctor or
clinic when making a visit. *When
children visit the doctor or clinic,
immunizations may', be over-
looked because the visit is for an-
othUer reason. While children are
at the doctor or clinic for any rea-
son, it is important for. parents to
ask about inmhunizations. *Even
if children are ill,- they still may
be able to receive immunizations
that will protect them: from vac-
cine-preventable childhood dis-
eases which can complicate other,
There is no charge for child-
hood Immunizations at ',local
county public health units. In ad-
dition, Florida law requires com-
panies providing health' insu-
rance to pay immunizations. For
more information about infant
immunizations, contact your doc-
tor or local health clinic.

Even fiscal conservatives have to admire that sly old turkey hunting
governor of ours and thus under-estimate him at their own peril.
Gov. Walkin' Lawton Chiles, of Lakeland, has done it again. His new-
est scheme (which he denies setting up of course) has him sitting with
Florida's $28-million budget in his lap next week as he cuts a deal with
legislators on his health care reform package.
Either by design or accident, the whopping budget has not yet been
signed by House Speaker Bo Johnson, D-Milton, one of Chiles' top allies,
whose aides say. has been out of town a lot. Although Johnson has
signed every other major piece of legislation passed this year, the 371-
page appropriations bill passed April 15 that contains numerous line-
item expenditures for local projects back home dearly loved by legislators
has still not been signed.
It's unusual. Last year the budget bill was signed 15 days after it was
passed. By law it must be signed by the Senate President and Speaker of
the House before It Is sent to the governor who has the power to veto any
item and send it back to the legislature for a rare override vote.
It means Chiles has another chip to use in bargaining with legisla-
tors on why they should support .his ambitious health care bill that al-
most preempts what Democratic President Bill Clinton is hoping to pass
through Congress this year.
Some of the items (if you're impolite you might call them turkeys)
, are: "A $400,000 appropriation to promote Florida wineries sponsored by
Sen. W D. Childers, D-Pensacola, a key player on the health care issue.
*A $500,000 Department of State appropriation to renovate the Gadsden
County Courthouse at Quiney, hometown of Senate President Pat Thom-:
as. *A $325,900 appropriation for a new roof and renovations to the pri-
vate,Bolles School of Jacksonville in the, district of Republican Sen. An-
der Grenshaw, another key player in the health reform debate. This one
is interesting. It goes to a private school because the building is of histor-
ic value. .
There are many more throughout the state.
This latest backroom victory of Chiles comes on the heels of his coup
in the public campaign financing law that allows him to travel around at
state expense campaigning as part of his ollicial duties, matches in pub-
lic money any amount that his opponent spends over the limitations, and
still allows him to appear pious by limiting campaign contributions. Be-
hold; the power of the incumbent
Chiles' opponents say he slipped the tobacco stealth bill through the
Legislature in the closing hours without debate and without most mem-
bers knowing what was in it just for another bargaining chip to have in
the special session on health care this month.
Maybe so, but I'm Inclined to think Senator Childers did that mostly
on him own. The tobacco-chewing North Florida veteran just doesn't like
the tobacco industry. A lot of fair-minded legislators are going to insist it
be re-addressed and I wouldn't be surprised if it passes again with a few
AN APOLOGY? Sen. Charles Williams, D-Tallahassee lately of Bran-
dord. said he was sorry and apologized to a group of South Florida Jew-
ish Senators who took offense to his statements in a National Day of
prayer ceremony in Lake City on May 6.
But he said his statement that one of the main reasons his school
prayer bill didn't get on the floor in the closing day in the Senate was be-
cause of opposition from the Jewish senators was true.
He could (but didn't) have said that the other reason the bill didn't
get the necessary votes to get on the floor was the eight senators were ab-
sent when the vote was taken and all five black senators in the senate
voted against its consideration.
I'm with Uncle Clem Redneck over there of Flat Creek in Gadsden
County who said this week that he is wondering what is being taught In
'the schools that won't even allow a voluntary prayer to be said on the
'"The holocaust and black history. but no prayer ... that doesn't
sound right to me. We're all in this country together and somewhere in
there dey's got to have some Christians," Uncle Clem said.
The eight members who didn't vote that evening were: Senate Presi-
dent Pat Thomas, D-Quincy: Senators Jim Scott, R-Fort Lauderdale; Bill
Bankhead, R-Jacksonville: Rick Dantzler, D-Winter Haven (he was con-
ferring with Gov. Chiles); Patti Grogran, D-Merritt Island; Al Gutman. R-
Miami: John McKay, R-Bradenton; and W.D. Childers, D-Pensacola.
PUBLIC CANING, as on the American in Singapore that several legis-
latures around this country are looking at as a solution to some inner-
city graffiti problems might be a good punishment for a certain legislator
from South Florida. He is State Rep. Carlos Valdes R-Miami Springs. who
is charged with scrawling graffiti on a wall of a condo will almost perfect
quality VCR pictures confirming it.
Valdes, a mortgage and real estate broker, has a civil lawsuit against
the condo association.
Let the courts find him guilty first, of course, but hold the flogging
up here in Tallahassee on the state capitol grounds.
Uncle Clem said he'd even come over from Flat Creek for that.
Environmentalists were criticized for trying to act as "judge and jury"
by the Florida.Supreme Court last week when it struck down their con-,
-.stitutional amendment proposal to tax the sugar industry a penny a
pound to pay for the cleanup of the Everglades. -..
The justices ruled 6-0 the measure violates the state Constitution by
addressing more than one subject. There is little hope of a revision of th'e'
language in time for the November ballot.
The Save Our Everglades Committee had raised about $1 million and
collected some 600.000 signatures to get the measure opposed by Gov.
Lawton Chiles and the Florida Legislature on the 1994 ballot.
"It is as though the drafters drew up their plan to restore the Ever-
Sglades, then stepped outside their role as planners. donned judicial robes
and made factual finding and determinations of liabilities and damrags,"
wrote Justice Leander Shaw in the unanimous ruling.
The Legislature passed a bill setting up a $685 million cleanup prb-
gram than includes establishing 40,000 acres of filtering marshes. The
restoration plan is to be financed by contributions from agriculture of
$230 million to $320 million over the next 20 years, with Florida taxpay-
ers picking up the rest of the tab. :
CHILES STILL BEHIND: Polls still show Gov. Lawton Chiles with less
than 50 percent of the statewide votes if an election was held in Florida
this week an ominous factor for a well-known incumbent.
He would defeat each of his Republican opponents, but the crucial
undecided vote which often goes against the well-known office holder
could deny him a second term in the November election. -, ''
The official entrance of Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher into
the race lasL.week helped Gov'. Chiles' chances, according to the polls, It
almost certainly assures a run off of Republicans to see who gets their
party's nomination, leaving Chiles-- with no serious opposition in his
own party to sit back and watch the Republicans cut themselves tip
Sand empty' their campaign chest. .
G allagher resigned from his Citizens for a Safe Florida.constitutional
amendment drivethat seeks a pehny sales tax for prisons when he an-
nounced for governor last week. ,
He denied charges that the amendment drive he started was a dodge.
Sto avoid the $500 limit on contributions under a public campaign financ-
ing law sponsored by Gov. Chiles and.held constitutional by the Florida
Front-i-running. Republican candidate Jeb Bush, of Miami, and Sen.
Ander Grenshaw, D-Jacksonville, still insist they will not accept taxpayer
money to campaign on. Gallagher and Secretary of State Jim Smith say
they are rethinking their positions. Ken Connor, a lesser known Republi-
can'candidate of Tallahassee, has announced he will accept the public fi-
,nancinig of his campaign.
BILLS SIGNED, VETOED: "This law sends a loud and clear message
,to the tobacco giants that they will be held accountable for sponsoring
sickness-and death. "Gov. Lawton Chiles said last week when he signed
,into -law a bill that requires the state to sue businesses it deems respon-
sible for illnesses of Medicaid patients.
, The bill slipped through :the Legislature with little debate, in the
closing hours of the special session is sure to be contested in court and
will probably be taken up again at the June 7 session on health care.
Chiles vetoed another bill that was passed in the closiI ii minutes
- without ample hearing that threatened to derail the state's growth ma'n-
agement act, declaring it would weaken the role of the state in mandating
comprehensive plans for counties and cities.

Gleanings From My GM
"C' ahead, make my day!" The words of Dirty .Harry (a.k.a.
Clint Eastwood), right? Wrong! As I listened to a recording of a
very popular Christian artist, thousands of young people
screamed and applauded with a frenzy. Jesus wap rebuking Sa-
tan with the infamous diction of tastwood. At the climactic mo-
ment of the struggle, Jesus exclaimed "Go ahead, make my
day!" Such is the gospel according to Carmen. But far be it from
the Gospel of the New Testament. jesus never said these words.
They contradict everything the Bible teaches about Him. Once
again, I explained to my son that much contemporary Christian
music barely qualifies as music and hardly at all as Christian.
But such an image of our Lord is very popular in our day.
Such a Rambo Christology plays well to our culture. Examples
of an "in your face" Christianity abound. Protest turns to mur-
der, killing abortionists becomes Justified homicide. The litany of

this malediction is appalling: servanthood becomes sarcasm.
truth-telling becomes axe-grinding. faithfulness becomes furor,
righteousness becomes rage., ministry becomes ,madness, and
compassion becomes cynicism., Herein is the. great dilemma of'
the conflict between good and evil: How can we .oppose evil with-
out becoming evil ourselves? Wedive in a day when there' aired fe
healthy models of social protest. We seem to be either rabid ex-
tremists or embarrassed passivists. And neither extreme has a
Biblical basis. I suspect that both extremes have a theological
foundation. The extremists are comfortable with a "Go ahead
make my day" Christ. Still others take no stand at all, retreating
into a piety of privacy saying to the world, "have it your way."
But neither the Rambo or the Burger King Christianity is a solid.
basis for a vigorous Christian apologetic.
The Bible teaches that Jesus, "when He was reviled, but not
revile in return; when He suffered; He did not threaten, but com-
mitted Himself to Him who judges righteously" (1 Peter 2:23
NKJV). In the same letter, the Apostle Peter appeals to us to "al-
ways be ready to give a defense to everyone who. asks you a rea-
son for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear, having
a good conscience, that when they defame you as evildoers,
those who revile your good conduct in Christ may be ashamed:
(1 Peter 3:15-16 NKJV) "Meekness and fear" is rendered "gentle-
ness and respect in the NIV. These two words modify "give a de-
fense." And "give a defense" is the word from which we get our
word apologetics. An apologist is one who does not apologize for
being a Chrsitian, rather he rationally and reasonably argues for
the truths of the Faith. Sometimes I think we get angry because,
we know our ideas are both ill conceived and poorly presented.
We get tough when we ought to get it right. But our cause will,
never be advanced much with big placards or defiant words.,
Christian activities and apologists badly need to embrace
"gentleness and respect" 'once again. It is rooted in an under- -
standing of Christ who is our righteous example and not a Ram-
bo extremist. This is not the easy way, but it happens to be the
right way. Christ's example reminds us that sacrifice is beastly
business. But it is dynamite to touch.

Hospice Helps Deal
with Terminal Illness;
Avoid 'Suicide 'Desire
"As a society we should be
concentrating on relieving suffer-
ing rather than killing the suffer-
er," says Anne Thai, President of
Florida Hospices, Inc. and Chair
of the Ethic Subcommittee on Eu-
thanasia arid Assisted Suicide for
the National Hospice Organiza-
The assisted-suilcide alterna-
tive became more visible when
both Michigan and Washington
confirmed the right of mentally-
competent terminally-ill patients
to ask physicians to help then
end their lives. Advocates of phy-
sician-assisted suicide have said
they will challenge other state's
laws as well.
"Hospice takes a strong stand'
against .physician-assisted sui-
cide," says Thai. "Studies' have
shown.that there are three rea-
sons why terminally-Ill people
look to suicide: 1) they, fear a
painful death, 2) they fear loss of
control and 3) they don't want to
be burden to their families. Hos-
pice deals with all of these issues.
Hospice supports the patient
and the family so the final part of
life, is pain free, comfortable and
rewarding. Once these. concerns
are dealt with the desire for sui-
cide usually disappears."
The hospice industry fears
that people are making choices
about assisted suicide when they
are in a state of depression and
without knowing what all of the
option truly are. ,
'. The answer to depression
should be coijnselihi not death,"
says Thai. Hospice leads the way
in helping both families and the
patient cope. 'Through bereave-
ment programs we also work with
the families after the patient has
died. wv.hich Is a comfort to the
patient as well."
,.e. '"The problem today' is that
trying to help people. die in com-
fort is taking a back seat the
movement to legalize euthanasia
'and assisted suicide. We can't let
the right to die become the obliga-
tion to die like it has in the Neth-
erlands, where assisted suicide is
decriminalized. We must put our
