What is Swine Flu? What should we do?

By Dr. Phil Aaron

Swine Flu is one of the "A" flu viruses; it is spread through the air when people cough or sneeze.

The symptoms are 1) sudden onset of fever (usually high) 2) headaches 3) cough 4) sore throat 5) nausea 6) dizziness ) 7) chills 8) sensitivity to light and sound. If a person has several of these symptoms, there is a need for concern.

Swine Flu is not spread by eating pork or food. This flu is spreading globally; a confirmed case has already been made in Bowling Green.

If you have several of the above symptoms and they are mild 1) merely stay at home 2) Wash your hands 3) Cover your sneezes.

If you have no symptoms, simply avoid contact with those who are sick.

If you have severe symptoms don't panic! This flu is treatable. 1) Seek medical care 2) Obtain nasal swabbing 3) your provider will treat you if indicated 4) there are two excellent antivirals available: Tamiflu and Relenza.

There are several unknowns about how severe this flu outbreak will be. Using Public Health's three "S's" it depends upon the public's susceptibility whether we can withstand this strain of flu 2) the speed in which the virus is spread 3) and the severity of the cases the Swine Flu virus produces. In this situation it pays to stay updated with a changing situation.

These foreigners need our help.

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife can be contacted (through local officer) and they will help with pond stocking. Check out Fish and Wildlife at: www.fw.ky.gov

s/Old Coddger

Thanks for the kind assistance. But Holy Salvation on Butterp'int Ridge! This man is no longer a "foreigner." He's a born again Adair Countian, with inalienable rights just as if he'd been delivered by Dr. Salato at Adair Memorial Hospital. He's eaten pickle dog. He can drive a tractor. He can whittle and spit. He wants fresh fish on the farm. What more can one ask? -EW

About: A traffic light needs to be installed, CWB traveler says

To ColumbiaMagazine.com:

I avoid that area: However everyone I talk to comments on how dangerous that intersection is. With so many accidents at that intersection one would think the State would put up a caution light. It is a highly traveled road with only more accidents waiting to happen.
