Hutchence committed suicide _ by hanging himself in a hotel GELDOF room in Sydney, Australia, in 1997. Yates was found dead at her London home in September. A British judge awarded Geldof, Yates' former husband, temporary custody of Tiger Lily, ruling in December that he should care for her for a year so she could remain in Britain with his other children, her three half-sisters. Geldof, one-time lead singer of the Boomtown Rats and organizer of the 1980s famine relief fund-raiser Live Aid, said the four girls were horrified when one of his old songs came on the radio. "The next song coincidentally was Michael's," he recalled. "Tiger was listening intently. At the end she said, 'My real dad's a better singer thatn you, Dad.' " Yeoh fights for local filmmakers TAIPEI, Taiwan — Michelle Yeoh, the first Asian to ever star in a James Bond movie, said Tuesday it was time to help local filmmakers and show off "the new general tion of talents" in the region. "We can do it, and we should do it ourselves," said the Malaysian-born actress who shot to Hollywood fame after the 1997 Bond movie "Tomorrow Never Dies." Yeoh was in Taiwan to launch a foundation for young overseas Chinese filmmakers. Yeoh's most recent hit was the Oscar-winning "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" directed by Taiwan-born Ang Lee. Subject of speech was a spectacle LONDON — "I have an important announcement tp make to you," Prime Minister Tony Blair told the London Press Club. "This is something I have been struggling with for a very long time." Addressing an awards lunch Monday, the 47-year-old Blair admitted to a laughing audience that he now needs to wear eyeglasses when making public speeches. . ;, He then retrieved a pair of fine-rimmed spectacles from his pocket and put them on. He has occasionally been photographed wearing eyeglasses to consult private papers but never to deliver an address. YEOH BLAIR Ann fans say counting pills is good medieine Dear Ann Landers: Thank you for printing the letter about counting pills received from the pharmacy Serious issues are involved here. First ^_ and foremost is that people might not get aU the medication they need. This is particularly important for those with life- threatening illnesses or those on maintenance medications. It is also important for those on antibiotics to take the entire number of pills prescribed. Those who do not take all their medication risk a recurrence or. contribute to an increase in resistant strains of bacteria. Second, most pharmacies that short-fill (or partial-fill) a prescription will bill the consumer or insurer for the full amount. .5 ft- " ANN LANDERS Creators Syndicate Inc. # If the consumer does not return for the remaining piUs, the bill is never adjusted. In 1998, Tennessee, as part of a nationwide monetary settlement, required Wal- greens pharmacies bill for the amount actually dispensed. Within the past year, Tennessee has pursued several other nationwide pharmacy chains. While pharmacists have a special duty to patients, we must also remember they are human and can make mistakes. If your readers see' this happening more than once at the same pharmacy, they should contact the consumer division of their state attorney general's office. Sincerely — Paul G. Summers, Attorney General, Tennessee Dear Attorney General Summers: It's always good to get word from "the top." Thank you for taking the time and trouble to write. Here's more: From Pueblo, Colo.: You asked if any of your readers had received too many pills and returned them. I received too many on one occasion, but I did not return them. Normally I would have, but the prescription was for Viagra, and my HMO limits me to four pills a month. If I get an extra pill, you can bet I will hang on to it. Sterling, Va.: When I worked for the mentally handicapped, we had to dispense pills. We often discovered pharmacies had added a couple extra. It was such a pain in the neck to fill out the forms to return the pills that we kept them. Durham,. N.C.: No pharmacist 1 know would deliberately short-coimt a patient. Mistakes happen, but usually it's due to a machine miscount. You would be surprised how many people drop their medicine down the drain, in their car or behind the sofa and then blame the shortage on the pharmacy Seattle: When I had a root canal recently, my dentist prescribed pain medication. The pharmacist accidentally gave me 100 pills instead of 20. I returned them. The pharmacist said he was indebted to me for being so honest because those piUs could easily have been sold on the black market for $20 apiece. Dallas: I received too many pills and tried to return them to my pharmacy I was told, "Keep them, because we cannot resell pills once they leave our hands." West Hempstead, N.Y.: My pharmacist accidentally gave me 100 pills instead of 12. Did I take them back? No, I did not, and I never felt guilty Medicine costs enough these days. His loss was my gain. Calvert City, Ky.: I once received 120 Valium instead of my usual 100. I returned them, and the pharmacist gave me a store coupon, as a refund. Now when I say I've been short-changed, the pharmacist knows he can believe me. East Texas: I was supposed to get 100 pills at 60 mg. each. Instead, I'received 60 pills at 100 mg. each. Such mistakes can be fatal. Tell your readers to be vigilant. Write to Ann Landers at P.O. Box 11562, Chicago, IL 60611.
