Bolinske Sr., 338 No: 512 bi l BISMARCK - In conjunction with Get Smart About Antibiotics Week, Nov. 14-20, the North Dakota Department of Health (NDDoH) wants to create aware- ness that "antibiotics aren't always the answer," says Faye Salzer, a NDDoH coordinator. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the NDDoH reminds residents this cold and flu season that antibiotics don't work on viruses. "This isn't new news. It's a long-documented med- ical fact. Antibiotics can only treat illnesses caused by bacteria. Colds, the flu, most sore throats, bronchi- tis, and many sinus and ear infec- tions are caused by viruses, not bacteria," said Salzer. In fact, antibiotics can even be harmful. Taking antibiotics when they are not needed is fueling an in- crease in drug-resistant bacteria, which cause infections that are haore difficult, and sometimes even impossible, to cure. Almost all types of bacteria have become less responsive to antibiotic treatment. These "superbugs" can quickly spread to family members, school- ing. An example is Clostridium dif- mates, and co-workers, and threaten ficile (C. difficile or C. diff) infec- communities with illnesses that tions - these are bacterial were once easily treatable.

After was intended for Christmas dinner, he pardoned the turkey." President Obama's first turkey pardon in 2009, one commentator found that the chief executive "did not seem all that thrilled with his role." Seven years before, when a female turkey - a thirty-pound gobbler named Katie -- was pardoned for the first time, George W. Bush absentmindedly twice called the bird "he." While many researchers credit Lincoln as the first president to issue a turkey pardon, others cite Harry S. Truman, who was the first to receive a gift bird from the National Turkey Federation in 1947. However, offi- cials at the Truman Presidential Li- brary in Missouri have found no evidence of any pardons given by Truman to a turkey. His successor, Dwight D.
