S. Boylan Foundation
A group of approximately twenty
people stood on stage during the Carthage
Acoustic Music Festival to give tribute to the
Helen S. Boylan Foundation.
The group was a partial
representation of the over fifty local
organizations that have received direct benefits
from the foundation over the last several years.
A plaque of appreciation was
presented to local foundation board member Jim
Spradling as a token of the communities
recognition of the funds value to Carthage.
Several of the attendees, including Mayor Mike
Harris, spoke of the many projects that were made
possible by the organization.

1982 to continue the family tradition of
commitment to enhancing the quality of life of

the Foundation considers a wide range of
proposals within the following areas: arts,
education, health, human services, environment,
and public interest.
The Carthage community is
blessed with several organizations that
contribute to the overall standard of living
that we enjoy. There is a fairly long list.
Sometimes it is easy to take those
organizations for granted.

evening was a personal pleasure because of
the support the Foundation has given the

will be appropriately recognized on future

Boylan foundation was singled out. A small
but honest gesture of thanks.

To Your Good
By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.
Not Always Painful
DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Please write
something about bladder infections. Can you have
a bladder infection with no symptoms? -- A.
ANSWER: The signs and symptoms
of bladder infections are the same for men and
women. The irritated, infected bladder demands
frequent, urgent trips to the bathroom so it can
be emptied. People have a burning sensation when
passing urine. Pain is felt in the bladder area.
Sometimes blood appears in the urine.
Men have far fewer bladder
infections than women. Women have a shorter
urethra than men. The urethra is the tube that
empties the bladder of urine. Womens
urethras open in an area that has a large
bacterial population. Bacteria can ascend the
female urethra without trouble. Its harder
for them to climb the male urethra. And
mens prostate glands secrete substances
that have antibacterial properties.
The presence of bacteria in the
urine without any signs of bladder infection is
called asymptomatic bacteriuria. Doctors treat
pregnant women with asymptomatic bacteriuria to
prevent symptoms from arising, as they often do
during pregnancy. Infected urine, even without
symptoms, can lower the birth weight of babies
who were in the uterus during that period.
bacteriuria in women or men, at any age, usually
does not require treatment. In women, bacteria in
the bladder are often transiently there. They
disappear many times on their own. Treatment can
lead to the development of resistant bacteria and
can produce side effects. Furthermore, it is
costly. The guidance from most experts,
therefore, is not to treat asymptomatic
Exceptions exist. Diabetics
might benefit from treatment.
