Department of Transportation PETS OF THE WEEK Lancelot is a handsome 1.5 year old neutered black kitty who arrived at the shelter as a stray. He is an outgoing character who will stick his paws through the bars of his cage to "wave" you to come over and visit with him. Lancelot doesn't mind being held by his human pals and gobbles up as much attention as he possibly can from his 2-legged friends. Still a youngster, he enjoys playing with his toys while showing off how quickly he can subdue a catnip mouse. He would probably do well in a multiple cat household as he has only shown positive behavior towards the other cats in his cattery. If you are looking for a feline who enjoys being petted, held, and teased with toys, then come to the shelter and meet Lancelot today. He can be adopted for $58. ID#A1154053 Tag#C997 Glenda is a 3 year old female Pit Mix who came to the shelter as a stray and is a favorite among the volunteers. This friendly gal is looking for a home with a large yard to play in and fun pet parents to use positive reinforcement techniques to continue her training. Indicative of her breed, Glenda is a quick learner and very loyal toward her human pals. With a smile that can light up your day and a tail that doesn't stop wagging, Glenda will be a great addition to a dog savvy family looking for a four-legged pal who can look past the breed's negative history and see Glenda for the wonderful companion she is. Glenda can be adopted for $69. ID#A1311633 Tag#C496 All adoption fees include vaccinations, spaying/neutering (upon adoption), a microchip and free Vet visit. Dog fees also include a 1 year license. Lancelot and Glenda are at our Central County Shelter, 5480 Gaines Street, San Diego. The Shelter hours are 9:30AM to 5:30PM, Tuesday through Saturday or visit for more information. Strange But True by Samantha Weaver It was American humorist Evan Esar who came up the following definition: "Statistics: The only science that enables different experts using the same figures to draw different conclusions." The Emperor Charlemagne, who conquered much of Western and Central Europe during the first century, had an unusual relationship with his daughters. He refused to allow them to get married, but he evidently had no objections to their forming, shall we say, less formal relationships. He doted on his illegitimate grandchildren and even gave money and gifts to their fathers. If you look at a list of the names of the 50 states, you'll find every letter of the alphabet except Q. For reasons unknown, a law in New Jersey forbids the sale of cabbage on Sunday. You won't be surprised to learn that the most dangerous device that is common in the modern world is the automobile. You might be surprised to learn, though, that the second most dangerous is the stair step. You've probably never heard of Countess Rosa Branicka, but she accomplished an amazing feat. In the mid-19th century, at the age of 63, the wealthy Polish noblewoman became ill. The diagnosis given by experts in Germany was breast cancer, and immediate surgery was recommended. For reasons unknown, the countess declined the treatment, then set about purchasing her own surgical instruments. Once all the tools were assembled, Branicka checked into a hotel in Paris and removed the tumor herself. Reports indicate that she healed well and quickly, and lived to the ripe old age cf 82.

Thought for the Day: "1 have not fai/ec/. /'ve just found 10,000 ways that won't work."-- Thomas A. Edison (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc. Understanding And Coping With Low Back Pain (NAPSA)-If you're one of the estimated 26 million Americans dealing with frequent or persistent back pain, being able to work, participating in your favorite activities or just taking long walks can be difficult or even impossible. Many conditions can cause low back pain. As people age, normal wear and tear on the body can result in muscle and bone deterioration. Injuries and trauma can also cause low back pain-even something as simple as lifting a heavy suitcase into the trunk of a car can strain the back. Low back pain can also be a sign of a more serious underlying problem, such as arthritis, osteoporosis or a herniated disc. That's why it's important to seek medical attention if you're experiencing low back pain-it shouldn't be ignored. "At some point, almost everyone experiences low back pain. The key is to treat it correctly so that it doesn't become a recurring or chronic problem," said Dr. Perry G. Fine of the American Pain Foundation. "It's important to find a health care provider who can properly assess your condition. Communicating effectively about your pain is critical-where and when does it hurt, what makes it feel better or worse, does it come and go or is it continuous? This information will help your health care provider develop an appropriate, individualized treatment plan." Coping with chronic low back pain can be frustrating, but there are many things-alone or in combination-that your health care provider may suggest that can help: Rest-but only for a short time: Resting sore muscles can help to ease pain, but remain active. Staying in bed more than one or two days can actually make your pain worse and lead to other problems such as stiff joints and muscle weakness. Medication: A combination of prescription and over-the- counter medications is often used as part of a treatment plan for low back pain. Your doctor will decide which option (if any) is best based on your medical history, allergies and other medications you may be taking. Everyone's pain is unique and different. Your doctor may switch your medication-or try a combination of medications-to find the right fit for you. Exercise: Exercise that strengthens back and abdominal muscles can help with recovery and prevent pain in the future, These core muscles support the spine, and building them up can improve posture, maintain balance and decrease your chance of injury. Your health care provider can provide a list of exercises to fit your needs. Massage therapy: Massage therapy can be used as part of a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to treatment and may be combined with physical therapy, acupuncture and medication. Dr. Fine recommends that caregivers and those battling low back pain should learn as much as they can and be actively involved in their own treatment plan. One of the resources available to learn more is Partners Against Pain(r), www. partnersagainstpain, com. The Web site contains a wide variety of information on painful conditions, resources such as pain assessment and measurement tools, and links to pain education and advocacy groups. The Web site can help people with low back pain and their caregivers better understand the condition and improve their ability to talk about pain with their health care provider. People can also find information about low back pain through the American Pain Foundation's Web site, www. or by calling (888) 615-PAIN (7246).

Realistically alcohol problems are individual faults and not the fault of the manufacturer or seller just as gun problems are not the fault of the manufacturer or seller.

Now, we would like our newspaper to include a report from our law enforcement office about the crimes committed in our town and include names of suspects. We feel this may be a deterrent to break-ins, etc. Vee Lumpkins for us Senior Citizens Editors Note - We have attempted in the past five years to include just such a "Police Blotter" with no support from the Sheriff's Office or the Highway Patrol. We have also had interested community members volunteer to compile this information, without Success. To The Editor - I have noticed several letters that have expressed displeasure at the signs on the gas station. First, they are clean and neat looking, and second, they look fine to me. Finally I can't tell you how glad I am that there isn't a "Closed for Business" hanging on the door. We are very grateful that they are there. Even nicer is the way they treat their customers. They behave as though they are happy to see me and help in any way they can. I have a "disabled" plate on my car and I have never had to ask for help and if I buy something heavier than a newspaper they carry it out for me. The station is clean and neat, they are clean and neat, and I am delighted by their service.
