! Injured puppy needs help Tramp a.k.a. Bandit is afraid of people. Even caring people. Someone abandoned this young dog. Frightened and in an unfamiliar surroundings. Tramp apparently wan- dered into the road where he was hit by a car. The driver didn't stop. Didn't know or didn't care about the helpless victim. People are trying to help the terrified puppy. A few residents of the Calvada and Highland area feed the dog. He eats the food and runs away. Tramp fears 'people so him. :*: ....... Tramp needs help. They want to help him. He needs it now. His protectors want to take him to a veterinarian to have his badly injured front paw'reat. They want to erase his pain. They offer kindness and caring. Tramp looks at them and sees only the source of his pain. He doesn't know human kindness. Tramp's "Angels" work daily to gain his trust as they have for three weeks. Now, the "An- gels" are sending out and SOS for help. The first plea is to drivers. Please, use caution in the area of Caivada and Highland. Watch for the pup hob- bling across the street. Second, they need help to convince the wary dog to allow people to help him. Last and most important, Tramp needs a permanent "Guardian Angel." Someone to love him ev- eryday. A person who will provide him with a fenced yard, food and massive amounts ofl- i "Operation Tramp Res- cue" is asking for assis- tance.

More force is required to expire a given volumn of air, or emptying of the lungs is slowed, or both. According to Roger Gauthier RRT (Registered Respiratory Therapist) probably the most common pulmonary obstructive diseases are asthma, chronic bronchitis, and emphysema. Because many individuals have both chronic bronchitis and emphysema, these dieases together are often called chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). COPD is second only to heart disease as a cause of disability in adults younger than 65 years of age. More than one third of all patients admitted to VA hospitals have evidence of COPD. Emphysema causes enlargement and destruction of the alveolar walls with loss of elasticility and trapping or air. Chronic brochiutis produces inflammation and thickening of mucous membrane with accumulation of mucus and pus leading to obstruction. Bronchial asthma produces thick mucus, mucosal edema, and smooth muscle spansms causeing obstruction of the small airway, this disease can be acute and chronic. As a result of these conditions there is obstruction of air flow. an impaired air way causes great anxiety, and fright to those experiencing this discomfort Family Crisis Center 24 Hour Hot Line Toll-free Business Information Line livers new business start-up .'. packets, licensing and certi- fication information,.appli- cations and other docu- ments.
