Shirley has warned me about thinking, but sometimes I can't help it. I was thinking that 1 am pretty dang lucky. Other than diabetes, cholesterol, blood pressure, eyesight, and hear- ing, I am in pretty good shape. I'm lucky,. There are people with a heck of a tot more problems than I've got. And they don't have near as much fun! What got me to thinking about this was a calf. I was down in the barn a couple days ago feeding a bottle calf. It was a twin calf that the mama cow forgot when he was a day or so old. But this is a darn nice calf and took right to the bottle. Before I started feeding him 1 had called the saddle horses in and grained them. It was just starting to get a little light and that calf was sucking that bottle and those saddle horses were munching on oats. 1 swear there isn't a sweeter sound than that. Then you add a little rain falling on the barn roof and that must be what heaven sounds like. But I imagine my chances of checking that out are a little slim. Anyway, that's what got me to thinking. I was thinking that Dad al- ways said 1 was lucky. And I guess he was right. So I started thinking about the things I enjoy. 1 enjoy having a beer on the deck with good friends on a warm summer evening. And Shirley would say I enjoy having a drink with friends on a cold winter evening just as well. 1 enjoy friends. I enjoy a good dog that chases cows when I tell him too and some- times stops when I tell him.

Impaired driving enforcement results in 834 citations Law enforcement patrols across the state worked more than 1.300 overtime hours tbr the Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over campaign during the month of March. These extra patrols resulted in 1,336 traffic stops across North Dakota with 158 arrests and/or cita- tions being alcohol or drug-related. These numbers reflect the totals re- ported from 44 of the participating law enforcement agencies, including the North Dakota Highway Patrol. A total of 834 citations were at- tributed to the added patrols with 93 accounting for driving under the in- fluence arrests or refusal of a test. There were another 27 arrests or ci- tations for other alcohol-related vio- lations and 38 drug-related arrests. Tickets Ior speeding were the largest portion of the citations at 270. The traffic stops also resulted in one felony violation arrest. The primary goat of high-visibil- ity enforcement in March was to pre- vent impaired driving, especially during the time period around the St. Patrick's Day holiday.

After all, mortality rates are a key measure of the health of a nation's population. Post reporters found, however, tlvat those dismal stats probably have less to do with healthcare - which we like to define today ,as the latest and greatest technolog~ and i!!suranee coverage albe t wii;h high deductibles - and more to do with what health ex- perts call "the social determinants of health," such basics as food, housing, employment, air quality, and educa- tion. Landmark studies examining the health of British civil servants who all had access to health insurance under Britain's National Health Service have found over the years that those at the lowest job levels had worse health outcomes. Some of those outcomes were related to things like work climate and social influences outside work like stress 701-690-7552 Professionally Managed by Prairie Homes Management 1-888-893-9501 TTY 1-800-366-6888 q' Please support your local merchants National Volunteer Week was April 10- 16, 2016 Farm Credit Services would like to recognize all of the rural volunteer firefighters and ambulance crews that support the well.being of our rural communities. and job uncertainty. In its analysis, the Post found that the benefits of health interventions that increase longevity, things like taking drugs to lower cholesterol and the risk of heart disease, are being overwhelmed by increased opioid use. heavy drinking, smoking and obesity. Some researchers have spec- ulated that such destructive health behaviors may stem from people's struggles to find jobs in small com- munities and the "dashed expecta- tions" hypothesis. White people today are more pessimistic about their opportunities to advance in life than their parents and grandparents were. They are also more pessimistic than their black and Hispanic con- temporaries. A 42-year-old Bakersfield. Cali- fornia, woman who was addicted to painkillers for a decade explained it this way: "This can be a very stifling place. It's culturally barren," she said. There is no place where chil- dren can go and see what it's like to be somewhere else, to be someone else. At first, the drugs are an escape from your problems, from this place. and then you're trapped." she told Post reporters. I recently heard the U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy talk about his upcoming report on substance use. About 2.2 million people need help, he said, but only about one mil- lion are actually getting it. Murthy wants his report to have conse- quences as far reaching as the 1964 surgeon general's report linking to- bacco use to lung cancer. In t964. Murthy noted, 42 percent of Ameri- cans smoked; today fewer than 17 percent do. The Post story concludes that the lethal habits responsible for the in- creasing mortality rates is cresting in small cities where the biggest manu- facturer has moved overseas or in families broken by divorce or sub- stance abuse or in the mind and body of sonleone doing poorly and just bL~rely hangingon. The Surgeon General has taken on an enormous task, but his efforts just mighi help the nation move its life expectancy trends back in the right direction.
