Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, March 25, 2015 7B Plan ahead for care of valuable animal family members It's really heartbreaking-- the many calls we get from people who want to rehome adult animals because a loved one has died or life circumstances have changed and the animals do not have a home anymore. It's tragic. Social, healthy animals who have done "their part" by giving affection, attention and love to a parent or Spouse and now have no home come to our rescue and are frightened, confused and withdrawn. It takes the volunteers many days and weeks to reassure these animals that they are OK and that, although their life may be changed, they are still going to be handled with care and affection until another permanent home is found. If you have an elderly parent who has pets please be sure there is a plan is in place for the animals if Morn or Dad should die. These important cats and dogs are members of the family and should not just be disposable beings. Please plan ahead and have family members and/or friends ready to assume care and responsibility for the animals. Our rescue does what it can to house and rehome as many adults as we can, but space and resources are limited. It is not unusual to have an adult cat for months or a year before finding it a new home and rescues should not be a dumping ground for abandoned pets because it is easier or cheaper to drop them off than deal with rehoming them. Friends has seven adult cats -- wonderful, gorgeous animals -- who have come to our rescue from these ANIMAL TALES FRIENDS OF PLUMAS COUNTY ANIMALS circumstances and we have had to turn away at least two calls for help in the last week because of space limitations. Our lovely animals are all very social, affectionate and healthy. Some are truly comical and will make you laugh -- all will lower your blood pressure and help you to live a fuller, more healthy life. There are many reasons to adopt an adult animal rather than a baby and we hope you will consider coming in to Friends' adoption site and visiting Babe, Gala, Shelby, Einstein, Lilly, One-Eyed Jack and Bailey. Let's give these deserving adults a new stable home. We also have three very active younger cats, about 8 months old, who would love to be catching mice or living an indoor/outdoor life. Spay, neuter, adopt! Friends of Plumas County Animals is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation and all donations are tax-deductible.

Meet the April 15th deadline and make an appointment today. L Helping with limits Question: We do a lot of ocean fishing and spearfshing and have a question: Do anglers or spearfshers have to stop fshing once they reach their bag limit even if they are with another licensed angler or spearfsher without their limit? For example, ifI am on my boat fishing for rockfish with a friend and I catch my limit but my licensed friend is having a slow day, can.I legally gift him some of my limit and continue fishing?The same with spearflshing. I know in years past I have been on boats where fishing was not stopped until the boat had limits for everyone fishing. This seems like a gray area to me and I just want to make sure I am following legal and ethical methods while diving and fishing. Thank you. --Charlie C. Answer: You can help your friends who are having a slow fishing day only if you are fishing from a boat on the ocean. "Boat limits" are allowed only for ocean anglers fishing for finflsh while aboard a boat. This does not apply for divers or for people fishing for invertebrates (e.g., lobsters and crab) or for anglers fishing in freshwater lakes and streams. Boat limits mean that all licensed anglers (and anglers under 16) may keep fishing until enough fish have been caught to fill all the anglers' collective bag limits. It doesn't matter who caught the fish as long as nobody is over-limit when they depart the boat. This provision is allowed only in this situation for saltwater anglers fishing with hook and line. It does not extend to divers or to shore anglers or to people fishing in inland waters (California Code of Regulations, Title 14, section 27.60(c)). GPS collars Question: I am training hunting dogs for raccoon and pig hunting and need to buy new tracking coilars that I can also hunt with. I've always used these old radio frequency collars but want to replace them with some good global positioning system collars. One of my hunting buddies says he thinks these GPS collars are CALIFORNIA OUTDOORS CARRIE WILSON California Dept. of Fish & Wildlife going to be illegal to hunt with. Is that true? --Bart H. Merced Answer: Yes, it's true. GPS collars and collars with treeing switches are prohibited when using dogs for the pursuit/take of mammals (CCR Title 14, section 265(d)). GPS retrieval collars employ electronics that utilize satellite transmissions. Collars with treeing switches utilize a mercury switch mechanism that changes the collars' signal transmission when the dog raises its head toward a treed animal. High tide line Question: In MPA zone mapping, who determines what is the "mean high tide" boundary? How is it determined? How is this enforceable to determine if you are in the MPA zone or not? --Anonymous Answer: The shoreline shown on nautical charts represents the line of contact between the land and water at a selected vertical datum. In areas affected by tidal fluctuations, this is usually the mean high-water line. In conf'med coastal waters of diminished tidal influence, a mean water level line may be used. The shoreline of interior waters (rivers, lakes) is usually a line representing a specified elevation above a selected datum. A shoreline is symbolized by a heavy line.

In self-improvement circles it's often referred to as being centered or finding your own personal balance point. In ancient religions, and certainly central to the martial arts and other similar practices, it is commonly referred to as discovering your life force, the flow of energy that sustains all living beings. In health, that source point is the gut, and not just as a predictor of our physical health, but our mental health as well. This linkage between our gut and our state of mind has been referenced as early as the 19th century. Many early scientists were making a connection between accumulated waste and toxins emanating from the gut, which were producing infections that they linked with depression, anxiety and psychosis. Today, this connection is being rediscovered by a current scientific study that may soon bring the link between the gut and the brain into clearer focus. While cautioning that much more research into the mechanisms by which gut bacteria interact with the brain needs to be done, early f'mdings suggest that future development of probiotic treatments could well prove to affect brain function in beneficial ways. As encouraging as this may sound, those knowledgeable about this field of study admit that the gut microbe system remains little understood in current general attacking root causes, caused by a leaky gut, says All chronic diseases share UCLA gastroenterologist one common condition-- Kirsten Tillisch, in an article inflammation, in the April edition of Men's Once inflammation was Journal.
