"We believe we do a good'job and give good care as far as the building will allow us to." McIntyre said currently they have problems with "overcrowding and occupancy," especially in the early parts of the week. Patients who are scheduled for elective surgery sometimes have to be placed on a waiting list, he explained, noting one patient had to wait six weeks before he could be scheduled for surgery. While the site of the proposed hospital is "presently outside the city limits" of Athens, McIntyre said the area "will be incorporated prior to construction." Construction is estimated to take two years to complete. "If everything goes as we plan, we'll move in around December of 1985," McIntyre said, adding the current facility would be used for "a nursing school and offices." Project architect Richard Hildebrand with the Minnesota firm of Ellerbe Architects noted the site is "adequate to support future facilities such as a mental health facility." He said the building would be situated in a north-to-south direction for "solar control," which would eliminate glaring sunlight in patients' rooms. Others testifying Friday in support of the project included Dr. James S. Cox, chief of staff at LMC, Dr. Joe Ed Smith, chief of surgical services at the center, and Sally Lee, director of nursing at LMC. Hearings examiner Danny Hardesty said his recommendation would be released in September or October and a final decision by the commmission would probably be made by late Oc- tober. There was no formal opposition to the proposal during Friday's hearing.

Special patrols could curb accidents involving stalled cars Special courtesy patrols drawn from city police officers or licensed private firms may be needed to combat the growing number of accidents involving stalled or parked cars on inter-state highways, say two transportation researchers. Such patrols could carry gasoline to sell as well as flares or reflection gear to mark abandoned vehicles. Tow trucks could be called rapidly to remove stalled cars, explained Nancy Hatfield and Cherry Kugle of Austin, accident analysis specialists with the Texas Transportation Institute, an agency of the Texas A&M University System. In 1980, the period studied by the researchers, expressway wrecks in- volving stalled cars killed 37 people and injured 451 others--about twice the rate for other interstate accidents.
