All hell broke loose," Scott recalled I'Yiday. a day alter being honored at Kt. Benning.
About two hours later, the resting

Moments after the attack was
launched, Scott was hit by two bullets from an AK-47. fired by a sniper.

me and gave me morphine to stop
the pain." he said.

Seeding or surgery?

than removing gland,

impotence,
GOOD NEWS FOR INSULIN USERS!
By Tara Meyer
The Associated Press
t? RCVCO, Invites YouTo Say Goodbye To The Vial And Syringe
ATLANTA
When Wallace
Black found out he had prostate cancer, he thought it was the end of a
normal life.
Doctors told the 55-year-old Federal Express worker they would remove his prostate, and he'd probably end up impotent and with little
or no control of his bladder.
Instead, he chose .to have the cancer treated by injecting it.with radioactive pellets, -a procedure that
has slowly, gained favor since the
first such operation in the 1970s;
Skeptics, say there's not enough
evidence to prove that the procedure, called seed implantation, is as
effective as surgery for prostate

hardware chain, !the Atlanta Jpurnal-Constitution reported Saturclay.
• The battery was part of a lot distributed to more than 200 retailers
nationwide, the newspaper said.
Reports last month said that the
FBI traced the battery to the 11stqre Sewell Hardware chain based
in West Palm Beach. At the time, investigators thought it might have
been in-a shipment of 24 batteries
delivered to the chain earlier this
year, the newspaper said.
FBI spokesman Jay Spadafore
said Saturday that his agency had
never confirmed that the battery
was only linked to the Florida chain,
Richard Jewell, the., former
Olympic security guard who became
the focus of the FBI investigation
within days of the July 27 bombing,
has proclaimed his innocence. He
gave authorities a six-hour interview Sunday after refusing for two
months to discuss the case with authorities.
