  • Exceptional sanctuary needs help

    Updated Jun 28, 2012

    Last week I took some cat food to the Fallbrook Animal Sanctuary. What an eye-opener! There were so many cats and kittens and dogs too, but mostly older cats needing a home. The volunteers are doing an admirable job caring for them. I said to one of the volunteers, “I imagine that each one of these babies has a story.” She said, “I’m afraid so.” This Fallbrook “exceptional” sanctuary is a blessing for our community and they need help; pet food, litter, and money. Please help this special group. Orolie Gubser...

  • I loved the water

    Updated Jun 28, 2012

    We just returned from a weeklong cruise to Alaska. It was wonderful and amazing. Water was on my mind as it is everywhere. Fresh water also served 2,300 cruisers and 1,250 crew members. It did not come from the glaciers. It was sea water that was desalinated. They also have a backup system of reverse osmosis and they can buy fresh water in port, but that is too expensive. It’s time for desalinization. My hair was squeaky clean and my skin liked it also. Time for action, not words Joe Bator...

  • Not all cholesterol is bad

    Updated Jun 28, 2012

    There are two types of cholesterol, one that can make the arteries less flexible and therefore make a person more susceptible to heart attack or stroke; and the other that actually protects against heart attack. Cholesterol cannot dissolve in the blood, which means it has to be transported to and from the cells by carriers known as lipoproteins. Low-density lipoproteins, or LDL, are considered “bad” cholesterol. When too much bad cholesterol is circulating in the blood, LDL can slowly build up on the inner walls of the art...
