"Cover Story" piece questioning the wisdom of Maine Bureau of Health chief, Dr. Dora Mills' plan on how to best spend the millions Maine is receiving from the tobacco-settlement money. This fall Mills will begin to distribute $22 million a year in health-promotion funds, which will be spent primarily on health-related educational and intervention programs focusing on the hazards of smoking and poor nutrition. But Will Everitt of Portland's Toxics Action Center wants more effort put into dealing with unhealthy substances in the environment. Peter Wilk, a Portland psychiatrist and co-president of the activist Physicians for Social Responsibility, also feels more should be done by state health authorities to warn the public about environmental contaminants. With special focus on health problems in Portland, and in Dr. Mills rural home county, Franklin County.
