Regarding your June 1 story "Judge's tough love fights drugs":

I was so exhilarated to read of the holistic approach used by Circuit
Judge Janette Dunnigan to help the addicts she has in the Manatee
County drug court program. It is wonderful to see someone who cares,
and who takes the time to teach addicts to care about themselves
physically as well as naturally.

I'm a huge fan of natural cures for the body's problems, and I think
exercise and diet are wonderful avenues for her to explore. I wish
more people in such positions would take the time and to try to help
solve the problems these people face, instead of just seeing them in
court as they fail over and over.

Judge Dunnigan is a woman to be admired! I thank her for her
compassion and caring -- for her big heart for those in need. May she
see amazing results in her efforts -- in going the extra mile.

Sometimes by just showing others that one truly cares about them and
believes in them, one does far more than ever imagined.
