A Washington man who cut his foot was refused surgery at a Delaware hospital and taken by helicopter to Washington when he was unable to prove he did not have AIDS. Dr. Robert Spicer, an orthopedic surgeon at Beebe Hospital in Lewes, Del., acknowledged refusing to operate on Rod Miller, 38, without proof that Miller did not have AIDS. Spicer said he suspected Miller might be a homosexual because of "his demeanor." Miller said he told the doctor that there is no reason to think he has AIDS.

Ventura County Jail inmates performed an estimated $2 million worth of work last year. On Tuesday, the Board of Supervisors launched a program that could triple that production, putting even more prisoners to work in jail kitchens, laundries and vegetable gardens. The county already leads the state in the percentage of inmates involved in formal work programs, said Sheriff's Cmdr. Donald R. Lanquist.
