the van and buy something in the store or make a  monetary donation.

NB/MCTN-Nasty punk

A psychiatric evaluation on a teen who attacked a nurse at the Dr. Georges L.
Dumont Hospital last month was presented in court yesterday. It said the 15
year old boy does not suffer from any mental disorder which would make him
not criminally responsible for the attack.

The Times and Transcript reports some documents were not available so the
judge delayed a decision on releasing the teen until at least tomorrow.

A 34 year old nurse at the hospital was cut by a piece of glass June
10th…but is recovering.
