.3 The Tribune Saturday, March 20, 1993 Kno-Ho-Co out of recycling Briefs Holmes County operation losing too much money By ROSA A. DAVIS Tribune Staff Writer GLENMONT The Kno-Ho-Co Board of Directors has told its KMC Development branch to get out of the recycling business. While KHC transportation services are doing well, the recy-cling business in Holmes County has continued to lose money, board members said. In fact, Kno-Ho-Co must loan KHC $135,000 to offset debt from the recycling operation and improve cash flow. Both Kno-Ho-Co and its KHC branch are non-profit. KHC is to repay the $135,000 in for annual installments of $40,000. A stipulation of the loan is that KHC remove itself from the recycling business by March 31. the board, which met Wednesday, went into a closed, executive session to discuss personnel. At the conclusion of the session, board members agreed to begin evaluating Phil Brown, chief executive Officer of Kno-Ho-Co, on a yearly basis. The board had not evaluated Brown until this year. The board gave the following permission to apply for fundings for their 1993-1994 operating expenses. The following grants were applied for: Lois O'hara will apply for $377,505 for the Foster Grand- The recommendations on road and bridge repair projects pass through two more levels of review before money is awarded. Countywide, more than $2 million has been provided through the state program begun in the late 1980s. While the rest of the organization is well-defined by state regulations, the local committee is put together as each county chooses. The local review group recently came under fire from county Engineer Fred Wach-tel who complained poor communication keep the county from getting the most out of the program. Commissioners and trustees in at least one township have supported his position. Mayor Turner, on the other hand, has defended the committee. But when commissioners Harold Turner and Dick Owens made their call, in the company of Wachtel, Friday their positions seemed even more divergent. The county officials had come to discuss the committee. Mayor Turner announced he would prefer not to participate in the joint review. Mayor Turner did take steps to make the meeting an Doctors From Page 1 official one. Noting that two commissioners represented a quorum of the three-member body, he said he wouldn't meet with the county officials until notifying the media. The Tribune was already in the mayor's office. Other news agencies were contacted. Wachtel held to his position that the local committee failed to communicate with county and other governments. Grier suggested a different view. "It's not our job to go out to each of the villages, township or the county engineer and get the projects they want. It is up to them to get them to us," Grier said. "You know you have to have an engineer to sign each of the projects," Grier said. "We have our own engineer who does our work for us." For all the debate, there was some agreement. Grier said he would take the initiate to report the local committee's recommendations to townships. The commissioners said they would ask former commissioner Dennis Bahmer, who has also been serving as a local committee member, to keep them advised of decisions. Ibuprofen works partly by decreasing blood flow. But constricting blood flow to the kidneys, which depend on a high rate of blood to work properly, can be risky, Kant said. Kant said he sees 15 to 20 patients a month with some underlying kidney problem that has worsened because of taking ibuprofen. A study published in 1990 supports Kant's concerns. The study found that patients suffering from kidney disease so mild they don't know they have it run a serious risk of kidney failure from using ibuprofen. The three-year study, conducted by researchers at Johns Hopkins University, found the change caused by ibuprofen poses little risk if the drug is used for a short period. But for those whose blood (low to the kidneys is already reduced by kidney, heart or liver damage, the flu, or aging, ibuprofen could trigger acute kidney failure. Researchers said over-the-counter use of ibuprofen was of special concern because, without monitoring, people may not know their kidneys are failing. A 1991 study done by Van-derbilt University researchers, found that ibuprofen doubles the risk of ulcers. Ibuprofen, available without a prescription since 1985, From Pago 1 has captured nearly 30 percent of the $2.5 billion nonpre-scription pain-reliever market. In 1985 it had only a 5 percent share. Physicians routinely prescribe ibuprofen for arthritis, menstrual cramps and joint inflammation. The label suggests taking one or two tablets every four to six hours, but physicians often prescribe twice that much. Dr. Charles Margolis, a family physician, said some patients, especially those, suffering from arthritis, take 12 to 15 tablets a day indefinitely. He said he usually knows their medical histories. Margolis said the drug should be better labeled. "It should be on there in bold print that it causes ulcers and could cause significant kidney damage," he said. Ibuprofen manufacturers say the current warnings are adequate. The label for bestseller Advil says to consult a doctor before taking if under a doctor's care "for any serious condition." That covers anyone who has high blood pressure or kidney problems, said Karen Richards, spokeswoman for Whitehall Laboratories, maker of Advil. She said the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommended general terms rather than a list of possible side effects.

At least 25 of 50 dead door found in the last four months were killed by gunfire or arrows, Ranger Urian McIIugh said. The others were probably killed accidentally, most likely struck by passing cars, he said. In addition to the dead deer discovered by rangers, many others may have been killed and the carcasses removed, Mcl high said. Hunting is banned in the park. The problem of poaching is a new one for the recreation area, said McIIugh, director of security for the park. Last year, there was so little poaching that officials didn't bother to keep statistics. Commercial poaching may be relatively new to the 32,000-acre preserve that sprawls across Cuyahoga and Summit counties in northeast Ohio. Hut other state and national parks see the problem more regularly. Nine Toledo-area men were arrested last month and charged with poaching door in southern Ohio, Ohio Division of Wildlife agents collected 97 doer. Mcl lufch said he finds the presence of the abandoned carcasses most troubling. "I don't understand how people can come in here, kill the deer and just let them lie there," he said. "I can understand a person going after a deer because he is hungry, because his family needs food, hut I can't understand this." Deer in the park arc accustomed to humans and probably are being shot as they stand n ml watch their killers. "We're finding dead deer right on our towpaths,' McIIugh said ported the theft of a pager from his vehicle.
