Speeding To An Early Grave I don't think it was such a good idea to raise the speed limit on stretches of interstate and rural areas to 65. The reason is when people get behind the wheel of a car, they immediately develop a criminal mind. Most of us won't steal, kill, deal in drugs or make a tape of a movie we rented, which would get us on the FBI most wanted list. But when we get into our cars, we might as well be Bonnie or Clyde. In the first place, I'd say 90 percent of the nation's drivers speed, which is against the law. If the speed limit signs say "55," nobody goes 55. We figure we've got a cushion there and if we push it up to, say, 65, the cops won't bother us. So we drive 65. Others, of course, go even faster if they have one of those machines that makes chirping noises when there is police Lewis Grizzard radar around. They call these things "fuzzbusters." You can go 120 if you want to if you own one of those things. When the chirping starts, you simply slow down. It doesn't take a criminal mind to operate one of those things: Of course it does. What's the difference between a fuzzbuster and a lookout? "I'll go in the bank and take the money and shoot the security guard," criminal No. 1 says, "and you look out for the cops." "What should I do if I see one?" criminal No. 2 asks. "Make a chirping noise." There are all sorts of other ways people can break the law when they drive. For instance, nobody really comes to a full stop at a stop sign if they're in a hurry and there are no other cars around. Stopping completely at a stop sign could cost you a half second. With that precious amount of time saved, maybe you could learn to speak French. Other drivers don't wait their turn at four-way stops. They also make illegal lane changes, neglect to flip on their turn signals, speed up through yellow caution lights, tailgate, and put obscene stickers on their bumpers. Throw in those who still drink and drive, and we've got a nation full of people who make driving terribly risky to your well-being as well as to your sanity. And now, we go and make driving even more of a crap shoot by raising the speed limit to 65 on rural interstates. Nobody will go 65, of course. They'll go 75 and 80 through the boonies and we'll soon get the automobile death rate back up there where it belongs. Also, Farmer Brown will never know the answer to that ageless question: Why did the chicken cross the road? Some fool who thought he was Richard Petty ran over it. Pharos Flashes The number of Indiana residents age 85 and over will double between now and the year 2020, according to Indiana University and the Indiana State Board of Health. The state's population is expected to remain at its current level over the next 32 years. Dr. Woodrow Myers, the state's health commissioner, said the rapid increase in the over 85 age group will put a tremendous burden on the health services in the state. *** If you're bored with singles life and wondering how to cope, a new college course may be just the thing for you.

Fevers are warning signals that your body is at war, the Indiana State Medical Association reports. The association says that the extra energy the body requires to fight invaders comes from stored energy in the body. The fighting activity releases heat and speeds up the cellular warfare, elevating body temperature. How high a fever gets is not necessarily an indication of how severe a disease is. A serious disease can cause only a low fever while a trivial infection may have a high fever. Any fever that reaches 104° in children and 103° in adults warrants a trip to the doctor. Although body temperature is 98.6°, the body's actual normal temperature fluctuates, between 97° and 99° during the day. It's lower after midnight and higher in late afternoon. Exercise, eating and hot weather can elevate body temperature. Dehydration is one of the dangers resulting from a fever. Get A Free Hearing Evaluation.
