3 Senior Health Care Solution From Judy Cavestani So you're a senior citizen, healthcare got you down? What do you do? " First. Give anyone 65 years or older a gun and 4 bullets. You're allowed to shoot 2 senators and 2 representatives. Of course, this means you will be Kent to prison, where you will get 3 meals a  day, a roof over your head, and all the  health care you need! 9 New teeth? No problem. Need glasses? Great. New hip, knees, ,1 kidney, lung.% and heart? All covered. And who will be paying for all of this? The same government that just told you i that you is too old for health care. Plus. Because you are a prisoner, you ' don't have to pay any income taxes anymore. ,f , From Jane DeWitt If you can start the day without caffeine, If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains, If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles, If you can eat the .same food every day and be grateful for it, If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you time, If you can take criticism and blame without resentment, If you can conquer tension without medical help, If you can relax without liquor, If you can sleep without the aid of drugs, Then You Are Probably The Family Dog! A 4-year-old was listening to a Bible story. His dad read: 'The man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city but his wife looked back and was turned to salt.' Con- cerned, James asked: 'What happened to the flea?' Why we love children While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church, a minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased. The minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought his father always said; 'Glory be unto the Faaather, and unto the Sonnn, and into the hole he goooes.' Health Tip - James Borger- son, retired MD, has a tip for walkers. While walking you should always walk with your hands in your pockets. Espe- cially when walking on snow or ice. In the event of a fall, you will go clown on your shoulder. If you have your hands out of your pockets, your instinct is to put out your hands to break the fall. The potential is your break a bone in your hand. And, interestingly, you will instinctively put out your favored hand. Your, left-hand if you're left-handed or your, right-hand if you're right- handed. So any injury is dou- bling disabling. Jim says a shoulder injury will heal faster than a hand injury and you won't lose the use of your dominant hand. Jim learned this health tip, not in medical school, but from a circus tra- peze artist when he was .just a "kiddie" out in the "Wild West". The first full week of January brought in frigid weather that made any temperature over zero seem down right balmy. Local contractor once com- mented that, insulation around a door to your house is best done in January. That's when you know where the leaks are. Unfortunately, headded, while insulating your doors in Janu- ary Will snug you up for winter there's a downside. By July, those same doors might not even close, because you insu- lated so well. Just part of that "you can't win factor" called life. If you know someone that drives a snow plow as part of their job, it's best not ask them if they've been busy. Trust me on that one. One thing that Illinois Dem- ocrats and Republicans, run- ning for Governor, have in common is Veni, Vedi, Clinti--I came, I saw, I lied. Just watch their commercials: Any candi- date for governor, that even has a clue about Illinois' financial condition, that says he won't raise taxes, won't get my vote. No one can straighten out this financial mess without raising taxes. And if they claim they can cut what has become enti- tlements; they need to give us specifics and dollars that go with it.

New Cemetery Regulations The Illinois General Assem- bly approved legislation chang- ing the way cemeteries are reg- ulated. House Bill 1188, if signed into law, requires cemetery owners, managers and employ- ees to be licensed through the state. The legislation also permits audits on cemeteries and imposes new requirements that extend from meeting certain grounds maintenance standards, to controlling traf- fic outside the cemetery during funeral processions. Failure to comply with these new require- ments could result in a fine, criminalpenalties and revoca- tion of licensure. As a result, it's likely that private cemeteries will be sub- jected to millions of dollars in new fees and regulations.
