High Sierra Animal Rescue is hosting an Open House and Volunteer Appreciation Day Sunday, June 10, from noon to 3 p.m. at its Delleker/Portola facility. Representatives from PAWS (Plumas Animal Wel- fare Society) and Friends of the Plumas County Shelter Animals will also be available to answer questions about their rescue organizations. The backbone of any suc- cessful nonprofit organization is a dedicated group of volun- teers. High Sierra Animal Rescue, PAWS and Friends are no exception. Plumas. County is blessed to have three rescue groups to help the many homeless cats and dogs find their new, and hope- fully forever, homes. An aver- age of more than 400 cats and dogs are placed each year by these three organizations in cooperation with Plumas County Animal Services, .our county shelter. Again, these organizations cannot do this without the help of volun- teers. Of particular interest, High Sierra has developed a unique wellness program focused on human contact and including routine and repetition, a com- bination that has proven to these new ways of helping a dog have a more quality life while in a shelter environ- ment and improve the dog's adoptability and increase his chances of finding that forev- er home! Currently, there • is a need for help in community out- reach at High Sierra. Maybe you have a background in fundraising, advertising vol- unteer programs and/or with social media such as Face- book. There are focus group subcommittees that can use your help with humane edu- cation and our new spay/neuter program in Plumas County. Come by and see how you can put your ex- perience and skills to good use as a community outreach coordinator or simply a sup- port volunteer. HSAR also does an adoption day at Petco in Reno almost every Saturday of the year and transports the dogs and volunteers in the shelter van. And finally, there is a need for help with our fundraising events like the Bow Wow at the Barn in July and the Duf- fers for the Dogs Golf Tourna- ment in October. $6 what are you waiting for? Save the date Sunday, June 10, and come join us! Re- freshments will be provided. High Sierra Animal Rescue, PAWS and Friends are all reg- istered nonprofits and need your help.

Chroni(' Lyme (lisea00:e: )n 00ise at Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, Ill. -- recently re- ported in the Chicago Daily Herald: "Lyme disease is most common in the north- eastern U.S., but the disease- spreading ticks are also HEA HESS states as well as along the Pa found in the north central info@creators corn . cific coast. Lyme disease has explained, "The classic symptom is a rash but also" can have very serious long- term neurological, rheuma- tological and arthritic symp- toms, as well as some cardiac symptoms." Moreover, the National Institutes of Health concluded that Lyme's im- pact upon one's total person- al health can be equal to con- and often-debilitating dis- ease, especially if unchecked, ignored and un- treated. As always, if you experi- ence any of the symptoms above, immediately consult your physician or health practitioner. In the next two columns, I will address how to reduce Q" I understand that May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month. As a mom with chil- dren, I must confess that I'm completely baffled by the dis- ease. What is it?. How do we get it? How can we avoid it? And what are its treatments? •--4anetB. Springfield, Ore. A: You're right. May is Ly- me Disease Awareness Month. There's no better time to address this question and educate people about this often-debilitating dis- ease than now, especially be- cause it's on the rise domes- tically and internationally. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention re- ported that in 2009, Lyme dis- ease surpassed the number of HIV cases. The CDC also confirmed 30,188 probable Lyme cases in 2010. Just.this past week, I found news reports on how Lyme disease is increasing in Kansas, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, vermont and New York. Though ticks infected with the Lyme bacteria are gener- ally more common in the Up- per Midwest and Northeast, their numbers have in- creased in the West, as well. With the ease and increase of domestic and global travel and transport, the migration of these bloodsucking, dis- ease-depositing critters is on the rise. Dr. Helen Minciotti -- a mother of five, a pediatrician and the former chairwoman of the pediatrics department been reported in 49 states. (Connecticut entomologist Kirby) Stafford reports that Lyme disease peaks during the summer months and is most often seen in patients younger than 14 and those older than 40." The staggering aspect about Lyme disease is that it's caused by a bite from a deer tick the size of a freckle or the smallest of Seeds (even much smaller than the more well-known dog tick). And with a mild winter and early heat waves, their population is booming. Claudia Blackburn, Sedg- wick County Health Depart- ment director in Kansas, ex- plained: "Ticks are out there because we've had warmer weather. They're out there earlier than normal." There is a long list of symptoms of Lyme disease, and many of them can be vague. A KSN news special out of Wichita, Kan., report- ed that "ticks carrying Lyme disease leave behind a large 'bulls-eye' shaped rash. Oth- er symptoms include fatigue, chills, fever, headache and muscle aches." The bull's-eye-shaped rash occurs in about 80 percent of those infected, according to Dr. Rajlakshmi Krishna- murthy from Boston Medical Center. The rash can appear one to 30 days after a tick bite and often is followed by the above symptoms. Epidemiologist Megan Saunders, from the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention, further gestive heart failure. Brand-new research also is linking chronic Lyme dis- ease, or CLD, to attention- deficit hyperactivity disor- der in adults, according to principal investigator Joel L. Young, medical director of the Rochester Center for Be- havioral Medicine in Min- nesota: Young told Medscape Medical News, "The associa- tion between ADHD and CLD has not been identified previ- ously." The survey results also corroborated a relationship between CLD and depression and anxiety. (The findings were presented at the Ameri- can Psychiatric Associa- tion's meeting May 8.) Pat Smith, the president of the national nonprofit Lyme Disease Association Inc., ex- plained in a recent press re- lease that CLD "needs to move out of the dark ages .... LDA wants people to know that without proper diagno- sis and treatment, Lyme dis- ease can seriously and chronically affect all systems in the body." CLD's international in- crease is one reasonthat throughout Lyme Disease Awareness Month, the LDA is launching a multiple-week campaign asking, "Chronic Lyme disease, are YOU next?" I don't want to alarm any- one, but like the LDA and health practitioners and ex- perts everywhere, I want to raise awareness and echo the warnings to you and your family about this increasing your risks of being bitten by a deer tick and then discuss the various treatments for Lyme disease at its various stages. I also will share with you the story of a young and courageous woman named Brittany, who contracted CLD and is, even at this mo- ment, fighting it. My wife, Gena, and I en- courage you to read Brit- tany's story at heal- ing4brittany.com and see how easily she was infected with Lyme disease. Then, if you are so moved, please share it with others and even financially help with her roughly $50,000 share • of costs to free her from this progressive disease. For more information about deer ticks and Lyme disease, I recommend the following websites: lyme diseaseassociation.org, ' cdc.gov/ticks, underour skin.com and texaslyme. org/about.htm. Lastly, for a more holistic medical approach to •and treatment of Lyme disease, Gena and I recommend Sierra Integrative Medical Center (SierraIntegra- • tive.com), in Reno, Nev. The people there are pio- neers in integrative medi- cine. They blend the best of conventional medicine with the best alternative therapies.
