By Mamie Eisenstadt Staff writer Rick and Tina Fitzgerald have been married for 17 years. They have jobs. They dream about having their own home. They also need someone to help them with tasks others barely give a thought to. Both have cerebral palsy that keeps them in wheelchairs. Rick's day starts with someone lifting him out of bed, putting him in his wheel- chair and getting him into the shower. If he has an assignment that day, the free- lance writer for The Catholic Sun has an- other helper who goes with him to set up his tape recorder and take notes on any- thing that can't be recorded. That person also meets with him twice a month to talk about his job goals. And the couple has someone helping them find the home they want: a little ranch-style house with a yard. When they find the home, they'll need help to make it accessible. Medicaid pays the annual bill for all of those people who help the Fitzgeralds. The couple has private insur- ance and Medicare, but Medicaid fills the considerable gaps left by both. "To me, what we get is absolutely priceless because I can't imagine going back to a time when we couldn't or didn't have these Tina said. "It N.Y.

The Associated Press Washington The days of buying some cold rem- edies off the shelf in drugstores soon may be gone, a casualty of the methamphetamine epidemic. Already more than a dozen states have laws that re- quire retailers to sell Sudafed, Nyquil and other med- icines only from behind the pharmacy counter. Now Congress is working on legislation intended to make it tougher for people to get the ingredients needed to manufacture the highly addictive drug. Retailers once resisted the idea, saying it would in- convenience consumers. Today, stores seem ready to go along with a federal law in hopes of avoiding a tangle of state regulations. This month, a Senate committee plans hearings on a bill that sharply restricts the sale of cold and allergy pills containing pseudoephedrine. This ingredient is used to "cook" meth in makeshift labs across the coun- try. "There's a lot of public pressure to do said Sen. Jim Talent, D-Mo. He has joined with Sen. Diane Feinstein, D-Calif-, on a bill to limit the sale of cold medicines. "I think retailers most of them do not want to sell their products to meth cooks and they know they have to do Talent said. The pharmaceutical industry has not raised major ob- jections, Pfizer Inc., which makes Sudafed, supports a national standard that would put pseudoephedrine behind EMINENT DOMAIN Top court ruling could affect Destiny plan PRO Why should eminent domain be used?

Government agencies use eminent domain to take private property, compen- sate the owner and give it to someone else. And it may happen in Salina. Eminent domain has been used and threatened locaJJy before. But few people know what eminent domain is and how it works. Even business owners knew little until now.
