Pointing out that the city's Water Plant is located below these leaks, this an- nounced biologist continued, "I've seen the amount of sewage coming out of that line from the prison, l'm concerned about the amount of raw sewage coming from there." "We don't want the prison's sewage in Glenville's water supply!," he asserted, that debris live lizet in the air." As a result, he recommended, "I think that the citizens of Glenville ought to be put on a water alert, and told about this, whenever it happens." Third Ward Councilperson Dennis Fitzpatrick, who sits on Glenville Utility's Board of Directors, reported, "I'm told that we have had 12 leaks in that line, and this past month, had to replace 3,600 feet of pipe." Mr. Ftizpatrick said that he would take these concerns back to the Utility's Board, and would make an effort to Attorney tees Citing the high cost of the city's attorney's charges, First Ward Coun- cilman Carl Armour -- for a second time in two meetings-- made a motion to get competitive bids on legal ser- vices for the city.

In a never-ending quest to obtain a dazzling smile, more and more North Americans are opting for costly cos- metic dental procedures. Unfortu- nately, many of these procedures fail to address underlying dental prob- lems that may compromise a patient's long-term dental health down the line. The American Association of Orth- odontists I AAO) is urging people who are unhappy with the appearance of their teeth, or the state of their oral health, to get to the root of the prob- lem and correct it rather than simply seek a quick cosmetic fix. Considering A Cosmetic Dental Procedure? "Adults considering cosmetic den- tal procedures to cover unsightly teeth should consult an orthodontist, who can work with the patient's gen- eral dentist and other dental special- ists to produce a healthy, beautiful smile." says William Gaylord, DDS, MSD. orthodontist and president of AAO. "Patients may be pleasantly surprised to learn that what they per- ceive as unattractive teeth are gener- ally healthy, just misaligned." Veneers or bonding may not be advisable when teeth are out of align- ment because they do not correct underl) ing dental problems. In fact. "quick fixes" may lead to unintended consequences, such as increased risk of periodontal disease and expen- sive. invasive restorations. Howe ver. veneers or bonding pro- cedures may be appropriate after orthodontic treatment to make bro- ken or misshapen teeth look and function better. Such cosmetic en hancements may be easier to place and last longer after teeth are properly aligned. Recent studies have shown a pos- sine correlation between periodontal disease and heart disease. The mes- sage is clear: Good oral health is es- sential for good overall health. Dr. Gaylord advises patients wfio want a healthy, beautiful smile that mvaslve cosmetic procedures alone may not be in their best interest. "'Patients shouldn't have to trade health for beauty-and they don't need to. They can have it all.'" Given today's technologmal ad- vances, orthodontic treatment has become a much more comfortable and simplified process. "Maj or orth- odontic advances include titanmm alloy wires, smaller brackets applied directly to the tooth surface, high- tech adhesives, and computer soft- ware that aids in diagflosis, which permits the orthodontist to plan the most appropriate treatment for each patient," says Dr. Gaylord Although orthodontic treatment does not produce same-day results, some patients may only reqmre lim- ited treatment. In additi o n. ort hodon- tic treatment ts affordable and is of_ ten covered by dental insurance plans.
