"We've always been KO involved with seniors, and we needed u place for I he senior citizens center," she said, A campaign drive initialed in November 1997 for a new PrimeTime Place center generated $500,000. The Gibraltar historic renovation project crowns downtown revi- talizution efforts and the city's establishment as u Graduate Texas Main Street City. The hospital will seek grant funding for historic renovation ideas.-. "Part of the stipulation on getting some of the historical grant money is that we don't change the appearance at all," said Terry Davis, director of community outreach and PrimeTime, Future goals of the Gibraltar, not funded by ihe hospital, include renovating die other five floors into apartments and office space. Investors are needed to develop the rest of the building, Ragan said. As PrimeTime membership grow to 3,300, ihe board considered several options for a facility, "PriweTmie was looking for a place, ll was known that we had to find a place because PrimeTime has outgrown everything in Paris, Texas, to meet in," Mrs. Parkman said. Ragan commended the hospital hoard for initiating renovation of the Gibraltar. "As you stand there and look at that old dilapidated building, it takes a lot of vision and a lot of intestinal fortitude for our board to stand in there and see what can be done to that building," he said. "We really hope that this will be the spark for downtown," Mrs. Parkman said. "I see this as the beginning of transforming the whole downtown area, with the YWCA down there, the pubic library, the park, our beautiful fountain, the peristyle at the park. "It's just going to make that whole area a thing of beauty." Time running out in case of woman's maiming As&ru-Ufari PTMC ».., ..

' Stephanie Booker was left permanently scarred in the collision after midnight on June 18, 1995, in n no-wake zone near Pier 121 Marina. Ms. Booker, now 35, of Carrollton has since had 17 surgeries to receive new lips, teeth. skin and a new nose. (She takes50>pills a day to fight the swelling ancMo kill the pain, which she describes as feeling tike her face is covered with fiie urns, according to her attorney, Larry Rolle. "We've had all types of agencies in the slate of Texas checking out leads for us," Ramon told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "We've tried everything humanly possible to bring a suspect forward, but we've just had no luck." While Ms. Booker was silting with two friends in their boat, a cigarette-style speedboat ran over their craft. The companions, Sabru Scott ami Kim Colvin, were noi seriously injured. But Ms. Booker struggled (u hold pieces of her mangled face together as the speeding boat left. " Among the crowd of about 1,500 people on the lake that night near the marina were Rodman and friends who were using his boat, which resembled (lie one that struck Ms. Booker. Bin their alibis checked out and they were cleared as suspects, Ramon said. Although the case has been on "Unsolved Mysteries" and Texas Rangers have aided the investigation, no arrests were ever made. Under state law, a person must be formally charged within three years of the date of offense for most crimes except those .such as murder and manslaughter. The case prompted a $63 million negligence lawsuit that will probably go to trial this fall. Sen.

The rule announced Wednesday shifts responsibility to identify medically suitable donors from hospitals to the local organ procurement organizations. For the first time, it also requires that people who approach families to request consent have special training in organ donation. Hospitals generally oppose the new rule but must abide by it to continue receiving payments from Medicare. Experts estimate that 12,000 to 15,000 people die each year from whom organs could be used, but there were fewer than 5,500 donors in 1997. A 1996 study found about half the families asked to'donate organs said yes, but. 27 percent of potential donor families never were asked. At the same ..time, 4,000 Can you A lot of people can't. That is where you come in.
