An incident involving Hillsboro's only doctor has thrown this Western Indiana community of 500 persons into turmoil. The controversy has been marked by a partial boycott of the Hillsboro State Bank, a threatenind phone call and feaers the town may lose the services of the physician.  Last April, a 21-year-old loan officer of the bank, Jay Allen and his wife, Lisa took their 6-month old son to see the physician, Dr. Jack Furr.  The couple's family doctor, whose office is at nearby Attica, was out of town at the time. Allen said he and his wife had waited about 30 minutes past their appointment time when his wife remarked to him that she wished they had waited until their regular doctor was available. Dr. Furr heard the comment, stepped into the waiting room where the Allens were sitting and told them to leave.  When Mrs. Allen said, "Fine," the doctor allegedly struck her, also hitting the baby, whom Mrs. Allen was holding.  Mrs. Allen filed criminal charges against the doctor. Dr. Furr pleaded guilty of battery - for striking Mrs. Allen and was found guilty of a second count of battery - striking the baby - at a trial in Attica City Court. The doctor was fined $356.  The State Medical Licensing Board subsequently informed Dr. Furr it would conduct a hearing Oct 16 on the incident. Dr. Furr who said he was taking care of another patient while the ALlens waited their turn, claimed Mrs. Allen was "huffing and puffing" in the waiting room, causing discomfort to the patient he was treating. When he asked them to leave, Dr. Furr said, Mrs. Allen made an obscene gesture and "I lost my cool and slapped her."  Dr. Furr said he believes Don Hesler, president of Hillsboro State Bank has been "pushing" the case all along, contending Hesler has a "grudge against me for putting a stop to his efforts to literallyh wreck the emergency ambulance service in the county."  
"This has blossomed into something that is unbelievalbe, the doctor said. Some Hillsboro residents, who ... sorry, continued on next page but newspapers.com wouldn't let me go to it :(
