Scooter is a loving 1-year-old neutered Domestic Shorthair Special Needs cat. He arrived at the shelter with a broken pelvis from an old injury, and impressed everyone with his sweet, happy disposition. Since Scooter cannot walk, he 'scoots' like a pro on his hind end. He has no problem keeping up with his best buddy Slinky, an active 6-month old Neutered kitten with spine and leg deformities. If you have the dedication and love to care for this pair of sweeties, please inquire at the lobby Staff desk for further information. Scooter ID#A1252810 Tag#C018, Slinky ID#A1253549 Tag#CK59. The Julian News 5 [ Y ThollghbyMicheleHarvey I POPE TREE SERVICE Cuba All Your Tree Serwce Needs Commercial I seldom write political columns. This week is an exception, I spoke with about a half dozen Cuban American women recently, women who ranged in age from 40 to 60 years and who had come to the U.S. at different ages. I asked these women how they feel about reopening communications between the U.S. and Cuba. On the surface, according to U. S. media, many Cuban Americans like the idea. These women are totally against it. They say that in Cuba there are no human rights. One told me that children don't belong to their parents in Cuba; they belong to the country, the government. One woman told me that as soon as her brother turned 17, he was jailed for being a Catholic. Just for being a Catholic. He is still in jail. All the women told me that his is not an isolated incident. People who do nothing except live their lives in a way that the government objects to, get put in jail. Now I think this is a good object lesson. Those of us, who may think opening up to Cuba is a good idea, need to look deeper. These women I spoke with say that they are telling everyone who will listen, why they don't want Cuba to be recognized by the U.S., but no one that matters is listening. The media that I have seen and heard says that Cuban Americans are all in favor of lifting the embargo and widening communications between the U.S. and Cuba. Apparently this isn't completely true. The U.S. has had a trade embargo against Cuba since the early 1960s. Our country was and is against Communism and the trade embargo reflects that. President Obama's administration is quietly moving toward reopening channels of communication with Cuba, seeing if it's possible to hold formal talks about migration, drug trafficking and any pertinent security issues. Maybe this is a good idea. Having a Communist country so close to the U.S. and constantly patrolling for drug traffickers and illegal migrants must cost our government a huge amount of money. I think our federal government is trying to gain cooperation from Cuba in its fight against drug traffickers and illegal immigrants. So what's most important? Gaining cooperation from Cuba to fight drug traffickers and perhaps gain some security? Or is it more important to keep the embargo in plce because otherwise we wilt be opening up talks with a government that doesn't practice or recognise human rights? It's very important for us all to look in to all sides of issues before making decisions. We can listen to talk radio. We can read newspapers and news magazines. We can gather then digest information. What's necessary is for us all to research important issues before forming opinions and speaking them as if they are truth. These are my thoughts. What Does The Swine Flu Man For You? By Jenna Madeyski, student JHS You've seen the scary news reports on TV, Internet, and radio: this swine flu could be the big one. The CDC is currently at alert stage 5, and it is likely that this will be increased to the maximum (stage 6) in the days and weeks to follow. But how nervous should we be? Other countries are taking extreme measures to prevent spreading, but are you personally at risk? Considering the fact that we are in southern California, we should be concerned, but nowhere near panicked. Less people have been reported to be infected with the swine flu in the U.S. than there are students in two grades at Julian High School (a mere 66 infections). So far, we've seen one infant death, but everyone else in the US has recovered without complications. For us, this is hardly any different from ordinary flu infections. In Mexico, where the environment is perfect for the spreading of infection, people should be far more worried. Officials are saying that they will be able to come up with a vaccine in a week or two, but the big concern is mass-producing it. We already have stockpiles of antivirus injections prepared should the need arise, and the US will readily use them. If the problem gets any worse in Mexico, we will likely see trade bans and travel ban to and from our southern neighbor in order to contain the infection. This tactic would help to isolate us from the source, but we've already seen a few scattered (albeit mild) infections across the U.S. President Obama has used the analogy of "shutting the barn door after the horse has bolted" to describe the ineffectuality such actions would hold. Start with a Rabobank checking account With the bird flu scare a few years ago, the US was able to iiii!!ilili!ii!iiiiiliiiii!i!iiiiiiiii!ziiiiiiii!iiiii!i!i!i!iii prepare itself for another such iiiiiiiii!iiiiiiiiiiiii!i!iiiiiiiiiiiiii i ii iiiiii event. And we are prepared. So ........... far, the CDC has handled the situation as well as they can, given the knowledge that their Nigel is an 8-years-young neutered Australian Cattle Dog/ actions may negatively affect Rottweiler Mix. This handsome guy arrived at the shelter as a stray our already unstable economic and is looking for loyal pet parents who don't mind the addition of an situation. Right now, we should enderly gentleman into the house. Nigel enjoys hanging out with the be more worried about school volunteers wether its laying out on a blanket in the sun or struttin' his being shut down during the AP stuff around the shelter facility to show off his good leash walking tests next week than actually skills. In either case he will be a very loyal friend to the lucky family becoming infected. that has it in there heart and home to adopt Nigel. He can be adopted And what can we as citizens do for the Senior Fee of just $35. ID#A0719650 Tag#C629 to prevent this from spreading? All adoption fees include vaccinations, spaying/neutering (upon Right now, the only measures adoption), a microchip and free Vet visit. Dog fees also include a 1 we can take against spreading is year license. Scooter, Slinky, and Nigel are at our Central County to help with sanitation. Washing Shelter, 5480 Gaines Street, San Diego. The Shelter hours are 9:30AM to 5:30PM, Tuesday through Saturday or visit www.sddac, your hands frequently and com for more information, coughing into your elbow can actually do more than you think at this point. Though there is only a mild cause for concern, the best reaction is a rational reaction. It's the flu. I think we can handle it.
