Story coming  Wednesday  ilfffF  llev, Sound Off:  I would like to respond to the people w ho complain about the smoking at the front of the hospital.  There are very few who smoke at the front o " the hospital at any given time. Most of the smokers have family in ICU and we run outside to grab a quick smoke because we're waiting for the doctor to come out and talk to us.  Doctors make rounds at different times of the day, so we arc watching for them all day.  They don't come to the smoking area to find us. Some patients have two, three and four doctors at a time, and we try to see them all, if possible.  ■More Sound Off Valley, 5A  Get the news w ith  your morning coffee  Subscribe to The \eu's-0tuner  232-2720  Index     Classified    . . .4-6C      Comics .    ... 3B      Ledger .....    .....ЗА      Valley......    ..., 5A      Movie Listing    ЗА      Obituaries...    .....2A     James “Bo” Meadows Eugene Reyer Sallie Mae Taylor  Sports  .1B  Daily Bible Moment  ocl u'orks all things according to the counsel of His will.
