Hounshell ends basic training

Air Force Airman Clinton G. Hounshell has graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio.

During the six weeks of training, the airman studied the Air Force mission, organization, and customs and received special training in human relations.

In addition, airmen who complete basic training earn credits toward an associate degree through the Community College of the Air Force.

Hounshell is the son of Myrtle S. Coody of Pecos.

He is a 1995 graduate of Pecos High School.

Turn home into poison free zone

It's an alarming statistic. More than one million children were unintentionally poisoned in 1998, and 90 percent of those poisonings occurred in the home.

According to Dr. Joan Shook, director of the emergency center at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston, unintentional poisonings are 100 percent preventable.

"All household products, medication and alcoholic beverages should be locked away and out of reach of children," said Shook. "When they are in use, potentially poisonous items should never be left unattended," she said.

Shook advises parents never to refer to taking medicine as eating candy.

"It's better to say it's medicine so your child can develop a distinction between the two," she said.
