The lawsuit names the a trustee and 36 association mem- bers as defendants. Protection against such lawsuits is becoming harder to find for commu- nity Ebersberger said.

That may be because of the 1 quart canteens that became part of their marching uniform this he said. After 15 or 20 minutes of plebes take a break and are ordered to drink some Evert said.

Navy doctors believe drinking a little water frequently fights heat problems better than drinking a lot of water at once.

The board's decision last week did not affect restrictions on smoking by patients and employees. Patients confined to bed for longer than a week may smoke in bed if supervised by a hospital worker or family member. Other patients can smoke only in lounge areas.

Hammond. who is running for the General proposed es- tablishing a residents-only nighttime parking rule on downtowni streets from 6 p.m. to 6 seven days a week. The Ward 1 Republican also has proposed extending the hours of the two-hour daytime parking limit now in place for non-residents. The current limit restricts non- residents to two hours in one parking space from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays only. Hammond would make the limit apply from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week. The Hammond proposal has met with but is widely ac- knowledged as a legitimate expres- sion of downtown residents' frustrations with their continuing parking nightmare. Mayor Dennis Callahan said he supports Hammond's proposal in concept. who lives in Annapolis and pays taxes should have the right to come home at night and be able to park on his own the mayor said.
