Local law
enforcement
responds to
Jackson County
tragedy
JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
Local law enforcement has
joined others throughout the na-
tion in expressing their sympa-
thies for the tragedy on Tuesday,
January 30, in Jackson County.
Chipley Police Chief Kevin
Crews said that one of the first
to respond in the shooting was
a good friend. "There are a lot
of real good friends over there,"
Crews said.
"We all work hand-in-hand
very closely on many cases,"
Crews said. "Something like this
really hits home."
Lionel Sands and Daniel Ray
Brown followed Sheriff John
McDaniel's wife, Mellie, home
Tuesday evening from the gro-
cery store. The pair killed Mellie
McDaniel and Deputy Harold
"Mike" Altman, who was the first
law enforcement officer to arrive
at the sheriff's home.
Sands and Brown were killed
in a shootout involving two re-
sponding deputies and the sheriff.
Authorities have not said if the'
sheriff, who was armed, fired at
the two assailants but acknowl-
edged bullet holes were found in
his car.
Crews said he has worked with
McDaniel and his department for
several years. He said that, unfor-
tunately, such a senseless shooting
may be a sign of the times.
"In the day and age we live
in, we can't take anything for
granted," Crews said. "It makes
everyone in law enforcement
stand up and take notice."
Crews said that everyone in-
volved in the tragedy has the
prayers and support of Chipley
Police Department.

JCSO still protecting
the public despite tragedy
Florida Freedom Newswire
reports that the Jackson County
Sheriff's Office still is handling
calls and is in full operation.
Maj. John Dennis wanted to
-let the citizens of Jackson County
know the Sheriff's Office is ready
and able to protect them.
"You always have to expect
the unknown, and the community
needs to know we are here for
them," Dennis said.
At the Sheriff's Office, Dennis
was somber Thursday afternoon
and said he hasn't slept much in
the past several days.
"It's been a day of planning and
getting the funerals arranged," he
said.
Altman's and Mellie McDan-
iel's funerals will be held Satur-
day. Mellie McDaniel's services
will start at 10 a.m. today at the

The time c year following
football season is often thought
of as the "off season" for the Chi-
pley High School (CHS) Band.
However, the winter months
have been equally as busy for
the student musicians of the Chi-
pley High School "Spirit of the
Tiger" Band. Several members
of the band have recently been
recognized for their excellence
in musicianship.
Florida State University host-
ed the 30th annual Tri-State Band
Festival in December. Three CHS
Band students were selected to
participate in as members of the
Tri-State Honors Band: Senior
Chris Dailey and Juniors Eric
Apgar and AJ Thompson. These
students, along with others from
Florida, Georgia and Alabama
rehearsed over three days and
then performed a concert in Tal-
lahassee.
Florida Bandmasters Associa-
tion All-State Bands were hosted
by the City of Tampa in January.

Sam Toole and David Worley are pictured with Dr. John Southhall,
conductor of the 2007 Florida All-State Small Schools Band, and
Richard Davenport, CHS Band Director after their performance
in Tampa on January 13.


CHS was represented again this
year by two students in the Small
Schools All-State Band. They
were: David Worley, a senior


percussionist; and senior eupho-
nium player Sam Toole. With
the financial help of the Chipley
Band Boosters, these students


traveled to Tampa to rehearse
and perform with this prestigious
group in early January.
The FBA District Two All-
District Bands were selected
and performed inflate January at
Marianna High School. Twenty-
three CHSBand members audi-
tioned for the bands and all were
accepted, with seven students
earning first chair positions.
The first weekend in February,
one CHS student will be perform-
ing as a member of the Southeast-
ern United States Honor Band
at Troy State University. David
Worley auditioned for and was
accepted into this prestigious
regional honor band.
The CHS Band is now prepar-
ing for several performances in
the coming months, including a
solo recital on February 6 at 6:30
p.m. and the District Concert
Band Festivalhosted by CHS on
March 3. Both events will take
place in the CHS Fine Arts Audi-
torium on Brickyard Road.


Search for ivory-bills along Choctawhatchee River continues


MLADEN RUDMAN

Two loosely concerted efforts
are now unfolding to rediscover
the "Lord God Bird." Research
teams from Auburn University and
University of Windsor in Canada
are patrolling Choctawhatchee

dling Walton and Washington
counties in search of ivory-billed
woodpeckers.
Nokuse Plantation, a private
land preserve near Bruce in Wal-
ton, is hosting amateur teams of
accomplished birders also seeking
ivory-bills. The preserve's effort,
focused on bottomlands south
of State Road 20, complements
Auburn's search.
"Some of our folks have re-
ported hearing the characteristic
double-knocks of the ivory-bills,"
said volunteer coordinator Mark
Bailey, a consulting conservation
biologist for Nokuse.
Woodpeckers also have been
spotted at distances or amid cover
that have made it impossible to
conclude they were ivory-bills. Pi-
leated woodpeckers that also live
in bottomlands look very similar
to the "Lord God Birds", as ivory-
bills are sometimes called.
Bailey said Tuesday that re-


cent cold temperatures haven't
deterred volunteers from trekking
through swamps.
Rain has been more trouble-
some. Bailey said sporadic
heavy rain has caused the Choc-
tawhatchee to overflow its banks
and then retreat. Unpredictable
water levels make it tough to
plan a day's search. Despite
weather-induced uncertainty and
no irrefutable evidence to date
that ivory-bills still exist, Bailey
said the mood among birders re-
mains hopeful. "We're extremely
upbeat," he said. "We know the
bird is out there."
Auburn and Windsor research-
ers have returned to the Choc-
tawhatchee because of tantalizing
evidence uncovered during their
first expedition from December
2005 to May 2006. The effort
yielded 14 supposed sightings,
among other signs.
The second expedition's goal is


finding proof, a clear photograph
or video or DNA sample from,
say, a feather, that ivorybills are
still among us.
Auburn scientists are keeping
ornithologists and birders updated

Two wrecks, one fatal
Florida Highway patrol reports two wrecks in Jackson
County on Thursday, Feb. 1.
The first wreck occurred about 9:50 a.m., on County
Road 165, 2.4 miles north of Greenwood.
Harold P. Rhodes, age 60, of Bascom, was driving a
2005 Nissan Frontier north on CR 165 when the accident
occurred. The vehicle traveled onto the east shoulder of
the road and rotated in a clockwise direction about 35
degrees. It continued about 78 feet on the shoulder of
the road and struck a tree with the front of the vehicle,
rebounded from the tree and came to a final stop about
four feet from the tree.
Rhodes was not wearing a seat belt and was propelled
forward striking the steering wheel, dash and windshield
resulting fatal injuries. He was pronounced by the attend-
ing paramedics.
Wreck two occurred at approximately 2:28 p.m. on State
Road 273, four miles south of Campbellton.
Joe F. Dent, age 69, of Graceville, was driving a 2003
Isuzu Rodeo southwest on SR273 when for unknown
reasons the vehicle veered off the roadway onto the
south shoulder rotating clockwise and hit a pine tree 30
feet south of the roadway. The vehicle then rotated two
more times and came to rest on the south shoulder facing
north.
Dent, who was not wearing his seat belt, was criti-
cally injured and the passenger Jeanette Dent, 68, also
of Graceville received only minor injuries. The Dents
were both taken to Southeast Alabama Medical Center in
Dothan, Ala.

Local man wanted for JC robbery
Jackson County authorities have identified a suspect
in the armed robbery of a Campbellton store clerk last
week, and are hoping the public can help investigators
find him.
Around 9 a.m. that day, a man came into the Camp-
bellton BP store at 5256 U.S. 231 and quickly produced
a silver-colored handgun.
He told the clerk "give it to me," and she handed over
cash from the register. He left and police have been un-
able to find him.
Sheriff John McDaniel said video surveillance helped
lead officers to Jimmy Dean Prather, of Chipley, as a sus-
pect in the Jan. 25 crime.
Authorities here took store video tape to police in Chi-
pley, where three officers familiar with Prather identified
him as the man in the video.
A warrant has been issued for Prather's arrest on an
armed robbery charge.
He is also known by the nickname "Black." Prather's
most recent known address is 598 Martin Luther King
Drive in Chipley.
On a Department of Corrections Web site, Prather is
listed as living at a different but nearby residence on the
same street. According to the DOC website, Prather has
also spent time in prison for grand theft out of Washington
County.
Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked
to call CrimeStoppers at 526-5000, the Jackson County
Sheriff's Office at 482-9624, or the nearest other law
enforcement agency.

THROUGHOUT THE AREA


The first call went to 911, and shortly Bonifay Police Department, Holmes County Sheriff's Department, Bonifay
Fire and Rescue and Holmes County EMS were on the scene at a bomb threat in Bonifay.


'I'm not joking, there's a bomb!'


Daycare
evacuated due
to bomb threat

JAY FELSBERG
Managing Editor
Mike Lee took a phone
call at about 8:20 a.m.
Thursday, January 25 at
Littlest Angels Daycare in
Bonifay. It was by no means
a routine call.
"You need to evacuate
the building," the female
caller said. Lee was sur-
prised, to say the least. "I
asked her is this for real, and
she said, 'I'm not joking,
there's a bomb."
Lee wasted no time wor-
rying if the call was a sick
prank or a real threat. "The
safety of'the children, was
most important," she said.
She and her husband,
Washington County School
District Official Bill Lee,
had an evacuation plan in
place based on Bill's years
of experience in public edu-
cation. The first call went
to 911, and shortly Bonifay
Police Department, Holmes
County Sheriff's Depart-
ment, Bonifay Fire and
Rescue and Holmes County
EMS were on the scene.


A search found nothing suspicious. There was nothing
out of the ordinary when staff came in that morning,
and there was no evidence of forced or any other kind
of entry at all before anyone arrived.


Law enforcement set up a
*perimeter while vans from
Tri-County Community
Council and First Baptist
Church took the children
and staff (and snacks) to a
designated "safe haven."
The fast evacuation went
smoothly, Chief Ronnie
Bennett said. "At no time
were the children in any
danger," he said.
Once the children were
evacuated police, firefight-
ers and staff began a me-
thodical search of the facil-

Report card on education
Over the past 20 years education funding in America
has increased by almost 80 percent so that today school
systems spend an average of more than $9,000 per student.
Despite this record of growth, student achievement has
remained stagnant.
Florida ranks in the top 12 in terms of spending but its
test scores remain in the bottom 10, according to a news
release. However, pockets of success do exist and can help
guide policy makers and educators in the right direction
towards better schools.
The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC)
has recently released the 13th edition of the Report Card on
American Education: A State by State Analysis: 1983-1984
to 2003-2004, which ranks the educational performance
of the school systems in the states, and the District of
Columbia according to several criteria including National
Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), SAT, and
ACT scores.
"Raising student achievement levels and improving our
schools is not a matter of spending more money doing the
same things as before but rather using the resources we
have available in better and more innovative ways," said
ALEC Education Task Force Chairman, U.S. Rep. Jane
Cunningham from Missouri.
"We need to hold our schools accountable and demand
results, and we need to give parents more choices when it
comes to their children's education," she added.
The ALEC 2006 Report Card on American Education
found, among other indicators, that 71 percent of eighth
graders taking the NAEP mathematics exam in 2005 per-
formed below the "proficiency" level. ALEC also found
no direct correlation between spending per pupil or teacher
salaries and achievement.
To obtain an electronic copy of ALEC's 2006 Report
Card on American Education or to schedule an interview
on the report's findings, please contact Jorge Amselle at
(202) 742-8536 or email jamselle@alec.org.

Healthy Habits


Washington County News, Page 5


Study: Many high school linemen overweight


Many of the offensive
and defensive linemen on
high school football teams
may be overweight or
obese, putting them at risk
for health problems down
the road.
A study published in the
Journal of the American
Medical Association found
that nearly half of the line-
men on Iowa high school
teams qualified as over-
weight, and 10 percent met
the medical standards for
severe obesity. The finding
mirrors the trend in college
and professional football,
where heavy, strong line-
men are sought-after.
In the study, the research-
ers gathered height and
weight data on nearly 3,700
varsity linemen from all
classes of Iowa high school
football teams, and used the
data to calculate body mass
index for the players. They
found that 28 percent of the
players were at risk of being
overweight and 45 percent
were overweight, including
nine percent who met adult
obesity standards.
The researchers say they
believe their findings are
not unique to Iowa. They
acknowledge that the study
had flaws - the data were
obtained in the preseason
period before athletes had a
chance to get in shape, and
the BMI formula itself can
be deceptive since it does
not account for muscle mass
and lean tissue, The Associ-
ated Press reports.

Blood pressure better
controlled in the U.S.
High blood pressure is under better control in the
United States than in some European countries. A study
published in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that
hypertensive patients showed better blood pressure control
in the United States compared to France, Germany, Italy,
Spain and Britain. The researchers attributed this to U.S.
doctors' earlier, more aggressive prescribing of blood
pressure medications.
In the study, researchers looked at doctors' reports on
more than 21,000 patients treated for hypertension. They
found that post-treatment blood pressure was lowest on
average in the United States, at 134/79, and highest in Brit-
ain at 144/82. The researchers also found that American
patients were more likely to be prescribed more than one
blood pressure drug than European patients. Researchers
hailed the findings as evidence that more aggressive treat-
ment works; they say the cost of medications is probably
lower than the cost of the heart attacks and strokes they
prevent.
But The Associated Press quotes other experts who say
that may only be true for very high-risk people. They also
say the study does not consider the potentially harmful
side effects of the drugs.

For those who like to live in the center of things


DONNA DYKES
Staff Writer
Those who like to live
in the center of things, may
want to consider a one- or
two-bedroom apartment
in Chipley's downtown
area. The 948 Main Street
address is within walking
distance of churches, con-
venience stores, service
stations, and banks.
Other amenities - post of-
fice, restaurants, newspaper
offices and a grocery store
- are just a couple of blocks
away.
Rebecca and Robert
Cousson own TAMRA
properties where two two-
bedroom apartments and
one one-bedroom unit are
available for rent. They
have furnished one of the
apartments and are current-
ly staying there although
their home address is listed
as Crestview.
In addition to self-clean-
ing oven, central heat/air,
refrigerator/freezer and gar-
bage disposal, each apart-
ment features a stacked
washer and dryer, carpet
and tile flooring, built-in
microwave, dishwasher,
blinds in all windows, out-
side security lights, walk-in
showers with grab bars and
high comodes.


Executive Director Ted Everett of Washington County Chamber of Commerce watches as Becky and Robert
Cousson cut the ribbon officially opening Tamra Properties for view. There are three rental units on Main
Street in Chipley offering many amenities in a downtown location.


In an effort to keep the
units nice, no pets or smok-
ing will be allowed.
Each apartment has its
own back door and there
is a bonus room across the


front of the building for the
residents to use. Couches
and chairs offer comfort-
able places to sit and visit
with friends. In one corner,
there is a cabinet with cof-


fee makers and storage for
cups, creamer and sugar. An
ornate faucet on the nearby
wall is convenient for filling
coffee pots.
Becky Hartzog Cousson


Florida among best at providing jobs


was born and raised in Chi-
pley. She says she lived on
Fifth Street, directly behind
the new apartment building,
from her 12th birthday until
she moved from Chipley
three years ago.
The name TAMRA is
an amalgam using the
first letter of the names
of Becky and Robert's
five children: T=Teresa
Brown; A=Angelia Mar-
tin; M=Michele Williams;
R=Rob Cousson and
A=Aletha Nguyen.
The Rev. Michael Orr led
the devotional at the ribbon-
cutting ceremony hosted by
Washington County Cham-
ber of Commerce. Ted Ev-
erett, the chambers execu-
tive director, introduced
members and presented the
framed first dollar of pure
profit to the owners.
The Coussons were
pleased with Tuesday's
turnout at the open house,
and Robert thanked every-
one "who helped us in the
process of building these
units."


Monesia T. Brown, Di-
rector, Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation, re-
cently released Florida's
.labor market statistics for
-Deceriber 2006. Based on
the latest nationwide data,
Florida had the fastest job
growth rate and lowest
unemployment rate of the
ten most populous states.
Florida's unemployment
rate continued to be below
the national average.

FLORIDA'S UNEM-
PLOYMENT (Seasonally
Adjusted)
* Florida's December
2006 unemployment rate
was 3.3 percent, unchanged
from the November 2006
rate. The rate was down
slightly from 3.4 percent a
year ago.
* Out of a civilian labor
force of 9,170,000, there
were 8,866,000 employed
and 304,000 unemployed
Floridians.
* Florida's December
2006 unemployment rate
was 1.2 percentage points
lower than the national rate
of 4.5 percent. Florida's rate
has been below the national
average since mid-2002.

FLORIDA'S NONAGRI-
CULTURAL EMPLOY-
MENT BY INDUSTRY
(Seasonally Adjusted)
* In December 2006,
Florida's nonagricultural
employment expanded by
2.7 percent over the year,
totaling 8,156,100 jobs. In
comparison, nonagricultur-
al employment grew nation-
ally at a rate of 1.4 percent.
Florida's job growth rate
has slowed most of this year
due primarily to weaker
growth in construction.
* Florida added 212,600
jobs since December 2005.
Professional and business
services and leisure and
hospitality accounted for
45.1 percent of the new jobs
in the state.

FLORIDA'S NONAGRI-
CULTURAL EMPLOY-
MENT BY INDUSTRY
(Not Seasonally Adjust-
ed)
* Florida's total nonag-


ricultural employment has
expanded steadily since
September 2002. In De-
cember 2006, there were
8,247,000 nonagricultural
jobs, an increase of 2.7
percent (+215,200 jobs)
over the year. Most of Flor-
ida's major industry sectors,
which are described below,
added jobs over the year ex-
cept manufacturing which
lost 3,700 jobs.
* Professional and busi-
ness services led Florida's
industry sectors in employ-
ment growth over the year,
adding 63,100 jobs (+4.6
percent). Employment ser-
vices (+18,000 jobs, +3.7
percent) continued to lead
job growth within this in-
dustry sector.
* Leisure and hospitality,
gaining the second highest
number of new jobs, contin-
ued to exhibit steady over-
the-yearjob gains (+33,600
jobs, +3.7 percent). This
industry has had positive
growth since mid-2002.
Most of the job gains were
in food services and drink-
ing places (+23,600 jobs,
+4.1 percent).
* The education and
health services sector
ranked third and grew by
31,900 jobs (+3.3 percent)
over the year. Health care
and social assistance added
the most jobs (+27,000 jobs,
+3.2 percent) in this indus-
try sector. The strongest
growth within health care
and social assistance was
in ambulatory health care
services (+11,800 jobs, +3.4
percent).
* The trade, transporta-
tion, and utilities industry
ranked fourth in adding
the most jobs in the state.
The industry continued to
exhibit growth over the
year (+25,200 jobs, +1.5
percent), with nearly half
of the job gains in retail
trade (+12,400 jobs, +1.2
percent). Clothing and ac-
cessory stores (+8,300 jobs,
+7.3 percent) was the fast-
est growing subsector in
this industry.
* Government ranked
fifth in adding the most
jobs in the state, primarily
in local government. Total


government increased over
the year by 23,800 jobs
(+2.1 percent).
* Manufacturing was the
only major industry that de-
clined over the year, losing
3,700 jobs (-0.9 percent).
Declines in durable goods
manufacturing (-2,100 jobs,
-0.8 percent) accompanied
losses in the nondurable
goods sector (-1,600 jobs,
-1.2 percent). The major-
ity of job loss in durable
goods was in nonmetallic
mineral product manufac-
turing (-1,400 jobs), while
the majority of the job loss
in nondurable goods was
in textile products and ap-
parel manufacturing (-1,800
jobs). Machinery manu-
facturing (+900 jobs, +3.5
percent) added more jobs
over the year than any other
manufacturing subsector.

LOCAL AREA UNEM-
PLOYMENT STATIS-
TICS (Not Seasonally Ad-
justed)
* In December 2006,
Walton County had the
state's lowest unemploy-
ment rate (2.1 percent), fol-
lowed by Wakulla County
(2.2 percent) and Alachua
and Monroe counties (2.3
percent each). Collier, Oka-
loosa, and Sarasota counties
were the next lowest (2.4
percent).
* Madison County, at
7.1 percent, had the high-
est unemployment rate in
Florida in December, fol-
lowed by Hendry County
(5.2 percent) and Hamilton
County (4.3 percent). Madi-
son County's relatively high
unemployment rate was due
to the continuing effects of a
layoff in manufacturing.
* The counties having
the largest over-the-year in-
creases in their unemploy-
ment rates were Madison
(+3.0 percentage points):
Flagler and Jackson (+0.9
percentage point); and Ham-
ilton and Indian River (+0.6
percentage point). Forty-six
counties increased, eleven
decreased, and ten were
unchanged.over half of
the total job growth in the
state.
*Holmes County had


an unemployment rate for
December of 3.1 percent.
Washington County had an
unemployment rate of 3.6
percent.
Note: All data are sub-
ject to revision due to late
reporting from participants
and the annual benchmark-
ing process.

(pronounced "kay-lee") at
the Chautauqua Theater in
DeFuniak Springs on Feb-
ruary 16.
He's a native Scot, with
the charm, rugged good
looks and soft burr of the
Old Country. She's pure
Southern American, with
a voice which interprets a
ballad as if she's lived it
herself. He says he married
her because she was young
enough to keep up with
him! She says she married
him to get a resident expert!
Together, their passion for
Scottish history comes alive
through songs, stories, and
dances as they entertain
as well as educate. This
dynamic duo, known world-
wide, combines their talents
to bring you an evening you
won't forget.
John Dall is a native
Scot, whose love of the
Old Country and pride in it


touch with its heritage. In
addition to being the Direc-
tor of Music for the Grand-
father Mountain Highland
Games, she makes concert
performances, lectures in
Scottish history, and is ac-
tive in promoting Scottish
heritage in schools.
Gammon is an honorary
member of Celtic Wom-
en International and is on
the Board of Directors of
Folkmoot USA, the North
Carolina International Folk
Dance Festival. A natural
love of history, a delight
in the songs and ballads
of Scotland, and the desire'
to share these with others,
makes her performances
an enjoyable way to learn
about history.
Both performers have
been elected as Fellows of
the Society of Antiquaries,
Scotland (FSA Scot).

Whether he is spouting the
poetry of Robert Burns
(which he loves to interpret
for Americans), teaching
Scottish country dancing to
beginners, singing the songs
of yore, or making Scot-
tish Highland weapons and
clothing accessories, he is
right at home with his own
heritage.
In addition to being ac-
tively involved with the
Grandfather Mountain
Highland Games as Direc-


tor of the Kirkin' and Parade
of Tartans, plus participat-
ing in the Ceilidhs, John
is the announcer for the

PET TALK


Fido can be a health hazard to humans


From Petey the parakeet
to Roger the rabbit, almost
every animal is capable of
passing some type of disease
or sickness to humans. Dr.
Leon Russell, a veterinarian
in Texas A&M University's
College of Veterinary Medi-
cine & Biomedical Sciences
who teaches a course on
the subject, says ailments
range from near harmless
to downright deadly.
The technical term for
such a transfer is zoonosis,
which means any disease
that is communicable from
animals to humans.
One of the worst: salmo-
nella.
It's a bacterial disease
found in poultry and eggs
and uncooked meat. World-
wide, it kills thousands of
people every year but can be
one of the most preventable,
Russell says. It's bacte-
rial cousin, campylobacter,
can also be acquired from
poultry, but young puppies
have been known to pass
the disease.
"If you cut up chicken
and then use the same knife
to cut the bread or salad,
you're asking for trouble,"
Russell believes. "And it's
best to clean off a cutting
board you're using, too. Just
one drop can make a person
very sick."
"Also," he adds, "you
must wash your hands af-
ter handling raw meat or
poultry to prevent transfer
of these bacteria to other
food items."
Snakes and other reptiles
are capable of passing sal-
monella, too, he says. "If
a youngster has handled a
snake or other reptile and
then eats without washing
his hands, it gives salmo-
nella an open door to invade
the body," he says.
Being pregnant is not the
best time to be cleaning out
the cat's litter box, either.
Russell says toxoplas-


mosis is sometimes passed
from cats to humans and
can harm a woman's fetus
during pregnancy, possibly
leading to birth defects.
"It's best to let someone
else change. the kitty lit-
ter if you're pregnant," he
advises.
Cows, and dogs, can
pass along leptospirosis
to their owners. It affects
the liver and kidneys and
can become very serious. It
can be similar to infectious
viral hepatitis in humans,
Russell points out. Animals
urinating in surface water
such as ponds, tanks or even
small puddles is a hazard,
he says.
Brucellosis can also be
passed from cattle to hu-
mans, and although it is not
as common in the United
States and it used to be,
other countries still are
dealing with the problem.
It often comes from impure
raw milk and can cause a
high fever and affect bone


development.
Children who ingest dirt
that is used by dogs who
have roundworms can get
roundworms and can get
ill, and hookworms from
an uncovered cat's sand
box cause skin lesions on
humans, Russell adds.
Cat Scratch Fever is not a
myth, it's real and when kit-
ty's claws come into contact
with skin and blood, it can
result in flu-like symptoms
and swollen lymph glands,
Russell says.
"Nationally, about 1 per-
cent of all emergency room
hospital admissions are due
to animal bites or scratch-
es," Russell explains. "That
figure may sound low, but it
adds up to between 1 and 2
million people a year."
The dreaded disease of
rabies has been around
for hundreds of years, and
skunks and solitary bats
are the most frequent car-
riers, Russell says. The
best advice: "Use common


sense and stay away from
wild animals, and if you
see a bat on the ground or
a wall, leave it alone. And
remember that rabies is
transmitted by animal bites,
not by skunk scent or flying
bats."
If you're a bird lover,
watch out for histoplas-
mosis. It comes from bird
droppings that are often
seen on the sidewalk or
on cars, and if you inhale
it long enough, it causes
conditions that resemble
tuberculosis, Russell says,
and can become very seri-
ous. Parakeets can give
humans Psittacosis, com-
monly called Parrot Fever,
which can cause flu-like
illness and eventually may
affect the heart and lungs.
And what about the re-
verse? Can animals get
diseases from humans?
"Tuberculosis can be
passed both ways, from
animals to humans and vice
versa," Russell explains.
