When a potential health threat surfaces, Orange County epidemiologist Dr. Hildy Meyers often finds herself trying to do two seemingly contradictory things: Warn the public and prevent panic. "I always wrestle with the idea that when we're going to make a public announcement about something, it can have negative consequences," said Meyers, the 39-year-old medical director of Communicable Disease Control & Epidemiology for the Orange County Health Care Agency.

The origin of hundreds of needles that washed ashore along Huntington Beach last week is still being sought, Orange County's top health officer said Monday. Dr. Hildy Meyers said an environmental health investigator on her staff had spoken with dental companies and determined that the two-pronged hypodermics were of the type used to administer anesthesia. The needles are often recapped on one side while dentists wait to see if more of the drug needs to be administered to the same patient.

A Health Care Agency official said Monday that her office has been unable to confirm the cause of death of 16-year-old Silverado Canyon resident Brittany Lynn Madore. Officials suspect rare meningococcal bacteria caused the flu-like symptoms and purple splotches that sent the El Modena High School junior to the hospital Oct. 8 before she died.

Re "Texas cheerleaders may use biblical banners - for now," Oct. 19 Aside from the very real issue of separation of church and state, the Kountze High School cheerleaders' use of Bible verses at football games is an unseemly use of religion that I hope any serious person of faith would find objectionable. It seems petty and absurd to call upon one's God to take sides in a high school football game. I would think there are equally believing and possibly worthy Christians on the opposing team, creating a difficult conundrum for their God. The only appropriate uses of religion in such a setting would be to pray (privately)

Health officials Thursday reopened all but a small stretch of the Huntington Beach surf that had been closed because of pollution for much of the summer. City leaders and merchants were hoping that crowds will return for the Labor Day weekend. The Orange County Health Care Agency acted after tests of ocean water showed a rapid and continuing reduction in bacteria levels.

Each year, the county receives several hundred telephone calls from people who report that they became sick from food they ate. Food-borne illnesses may range from mild nausea to vomiting and diarrhea, according to Dr. Hildy Meyers, epidemiologist for the county's Disease Prevention and Control Division.
