THE BAYTOVW SUN Beach Gity studies municipal court Wednesday, August 26. 1987 3-A By LOUISE SHAW BEACH CITY - City officials will continue to look into the feasibility of a municipal court, it was decided at a council meeting Tuesday night at the West Chambers County Community Building. Council members have passed a number of ordinances, including an animal control law and an ordinance regulating the installation of sewer facilities, Without a city court, however, there is no means of enforcing ordinances. Discussion of a municipal court arose when; Mayor Rusty Senac reported several residents were ignoring the sewer regulations and that raw sewage was flowing on the ground. "I feel that it is lime that council start formulating a plan of enforcing ordinances," said Danny Jackson, city attorney. Jackson explained that, in the past, Houston Lighting & Power Co. had tried to help the city enforce health and safety ordinances by refusing to turn on electricity to a new home which did not meet the requirements. However, the company backed down from this policy when several residents have threatened to file suit against the company. '"11 is time to consider a municipal court. This is important to the city's health and welfare," Jackson said. •'Word will, get around and they will stop it (breaking ordinances)," Jackson said. Alderman Dan Johnson commented that the ordinances were merely pieces of paper with no enforcement. "We're kidding ourselves if they don't want to cooperate," Johnson said. Bill Reedy, city marshal, also voiced an opinion in favor of the court. "All I can do now is bluff," Reedy said. The question was raised about Cut down on blubber intake, Eskimos told NUUK, Greenland (AP) — Greenland's Eskimos, stars of television:ads promoting fish-oil capsules to Americans, are being advised by their own doctors to go easy on the whale blubber, seal and other meat that provides the oil. The doctors agree the fish oil is probably beneficial to the circulatory .system, as the advertisements claim! What troubles them is the high level of toxic mercury being found in the meat of marine mammals in far- northern waters. "Among people in northern Greenland.' we. : are. finding serum mercury levels two. three or four times higher than recommended by the World Health Organization," said Dr. Jens Peter Brangstrup Hansen. deputy chief medical officer for this Danish island territory. Brangstrup Hansen and other physicians also pointed out thai although the Eskimos seldom suffer heart disease, as noted in TV commercials showing them heartily paddling kayaks, they have high incidences of stroke and other illnesses, including arthritis, probably brought on by long years cramped in those very kayaks Two L'.S drugmakers have mounted majo^ advertising campaigns to sell diet supplements based on omega-3 fatty acids, substances found in oily, cold-water fish and in the seals. whales, walruses and other mammals that eat them. Studies of Greenland Eskimos, whose diet is heavy with such foods, found that they suffered heart attacks at only one-tenth the rate of European Danes. That discovery and subsequent research elsewhere led scientists to theorize that omega-3 fatty acids protect the human heart by lowering levels of blood fat that causes hardening of arteries, and by slowing the clotting of blood. Some specialists balk at all- out endorsement of the concen- trates, however, noting that research is only in its preliminary stages. Some suggest the oil is beneficial only when fish is substituted for red meat in the diet, and would do little goodlf simply taken as capsules along with a diet heavy in red meat. : • . . . . In his latest review of the studies, a key Danish researcher. Dr. Joern Dyerberg. went no further than to endorse seafood generally in the diet, "while awaiting the results of controlled clinical trials" on omega-3 fatty acids themselves.
