With all of the fun and new things that have been experienced at Boys’ State so far, few have taken time to consider some of the work that goes on behind the scenes in the program. One vital member of the staff is Bill Montz, Chief Medical Officer. In an interview, Mr. Montz was happy to report that so far no major injuries have been reported. Mr. Montz generally deals with sprains, strains, cuts, and bruises. Most of these injuries seem to somehow mysteriously coincide with the 4 o’clock sports practice… Despite the obvious injuries he must attend to, Mr. Montz was concerned about one health issue enough to personally request its presence in this article. With temperatures pushing 90 degrees Fahrenheit, it is essential to stay hydrated throughout the day. Mr. Montz recommends drinking one liter of water every 2 hours, even if you are not thirsty. To those reading this and groaning with thinly veiled annoyance, Mr. Montz leaves these words: “Our goal is for everybody to have a safe and fun stay at Boys’ State.” So, in words of our Chief Medical Officer, “Hydrate or Die!”
