But they did say that they think the city has a lot of potential and that its problems are not unsolvable. Community Development Di- rector Carol Lewis said that she, City Manager Craig Martin and SHEDG President Ron Moore have decided to "move ahead with downtown busi- ness owners and interested people." "We came out of the downtown assessment with fairly negative, though realistic, input," Lewis said. The first meeting will be held from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, March 4, at the Community Center.

He called Chief Mike Beaver at the Sweet Home Fire and Ambulance District to discuss the situation. They decided to visit Safeway and Thrift- way where store officials were "very cooperative," he said and agreed to revise store policies as to who could buy Benadryl (limited to those over 18) and, at one store, keeping the products behind the counter. Trahan and SHFAD Battalion Chief Doug Emmert visited an assem- bly at the high school last Wednesday, Feb. 20, to talk to the students about the problem. "I really just talked to the kids about the dangers of drug overdoses, SH estimated at 8,995 residents According to Portland State University population estimates re- leased to the city of Sweet Home in December, Sweet Home's population was 8,995 as of July 1. In 2006, Sweet Home had an estimated population of 8,790. In 2000, the U.S. census counted 8,016 residents, while the PSU estimate was 8,085. In 1998, PSU estimated the population at 7,815. The population estimates are based on the number of housing starts and demolitions in the city each year, city Community Development Direc- tor Carol Lewis said. Weddings Portraits And More department at :: i period," Emmert said. "I threw in Benadryl in particular." He said Banadryl is just the latest example of"different little crazes that come through. Somebody figures out that some usually benign drug will do something different than it's sup- posed to do." Benadryl is an antihistamine used to treat allergies, congestion and bee stings. Emmert said it is used in "a lot of the sleeping pills that you can buy over the counter." In high doses, he said, "it kind of works the opposite of what it normally does." Symptoms in an overdose can include excitability, heart rhythm changes, hallucinations, seizures, extreme chills, insomnia, dry mouth, flushing, fever, confu- sion, and long-lasting effects such as kidney or liver damage.
