22 Thursday, September l |, 199"/Pahrump Valley Gazette Senior News I I I I I i i iH iiii HH PAHRUMP SENIOR N ......... (702) 727-5008 " by Jean Halley What an eventful week it has been. The storm, yesterday lovely day and now it's Friday already. Some of you probably do not know that the center is an emergency shelter in time of need. The Red Cross was here in force, set up for evacuees but none came. There were some long hours put in. Actually we have to say we're glad this time that none had to take advantage of our shelter. But we would like you to come regularly mad partake of our excellent lunches and warm atmosphere. You will make some wonderful friends. Marcia is recovering and hopes to be back soon. I want to thank Karen Williams for the donation of squash, cantaloupe, cucumbers and tomatoes. They will be put to good use. Thought for today "You know you're getting older when your children begin to look middle-aged." Whereas: County officials have decided to go forth with their effort to enact the unconstitutional Animal Control Ordinance (People Control) in an effort to further enslave the people, Whereas: They are, as in the past, trying to stifle the efforts of the people to stop enactment of said ordinance, Whereas: Animal Control personnel, part of the Sheriff's Department, in several instances have, prior to enactment of this ordinance, enforced it as if it is already law. All this in violation of many Constitutional guarantees, Whereas: All of these activities, being blatant attempts to control us and our private property, I hereby pledge $200,000 toward the recall or prosecution of any public official who promotes or attempts to formulate any law or enforce in any way legislation that would deprive any individual of his or her rights.

I SENIOR SF00RVlCE LINE (702) 727-5008 by Matilda Charles HMOs were supposed to be exactly what their name implied: Health Maintenance Organizations. People were encouraged to sign up because they would be able to get regular checkups that could detect and diagnose problems early enough to initiate therapies that would not only save lives, but also money. In recent years, many HMOs have concentrated more on the money-saving factor and, as a result, patients have begun to complain that they're getting dangerously short shrift from their HMOs. Indeed, many people have some sort of horror story to tell about their organizatiorr, impli- cating anyone from administration to receptionists to mem- bers of the medical staff. Although I don't encourage the mentality that sees lawsuits as the only way to handle problems, it's often the threat of a lawsuit that will keep a doctor or hospital alert to the kind of negligence that can lead to physical problems and a subsequent turn to the law courts. The trouble is, HMOs are pretty much immune from lawsuits, thanks to a legislative loophole that was never intended to immunize them, but did. However, all statu- tory laws are relatively easy to change. Perhaps if the HMOs don't get the message, it might be time to send another message to Congress to make the necessary legis- lative change s that will restore Americans' faith in their health delivery system.
