The paint on the window trim at the historic Sumter County Courthouse in Bushnell is weathered and peeling. But thats not the only sign of age at the courthouse that dates back to 1913. The plumbings old, the electrical system is out of date and incapable of handling the electric demands of modern-day equipment. But county commissioners plan to rectify problems with the historic structure. Included in the countys proposed 2010-11 fiscal year budget is a $4million expenditure to renovate the building and erect new signage. County Administrator Bradley Arnold knows all too well about the buildings structural woes. When I came here in 2006 there was water intrusion in the building and the calking was coming out around the windows, he said. Im glad to see the investment in the building. Its our historic courthouse. Its a great building. One of the first things on the list to be repaired is the exterior of the old courthouse. Mortar needs replaced and the windows will be replaced, he said. While the new windows will not open like the existing windows do, the new windows will appear historically correct and should help save on energy costs, he said. Inside, new plumbing 204 E.

Last February, the Sumter County Sheriffs Office received a letter believed to be from an inmate in the Lake County correctional facility claiming to have information about the 1979 murder of Ocala resident David Richard Edwards. Edwards, 21, was shot four times in the back and then left beside a desolate road outside Bushnell. His body was found on Oct. 11, 1979, but investigators believe he was killed a day or two before the discovery. But the letter, while providing unpublicized details about the murder, did not provide enough information for investigators to locate its author or enough information to track down Edwards killer. The letter (included in a photograph with this story) claims that the murder was committed by two inmates who got out of prison the same day that Edwards was murdered. With no signature and prison employees unable to determine who wrote the letter, it remains just another piece of evidence in Edwards murder file. B OB R EICHMAN Editor Clue adds more mystery to murder Preparing for a facelift This is the eighth story in a series of stories featuring 12 unsolved murders contained in the Sumter County Sheriffs Office Cold Case File. During the upcoming weeks, the Sumter County Times will publish information about each of the murders. Sumter came home from Chipley as the state champs last week. The 16 and under state title winners are (back row, left to right) Call Graham, Cameron Hayes, Zach Maddox, Bo Farmer, Clay Simmons, Garrett McMullen, Steven Lozano, Shelly Henderson; (front row, left to right) Zack Sullivan, Jared Lozano, Hayden Fields. State champions. Yes, state champions! For the second time this season, a Sumter County ball team has come home from state tournaments with the championship title. This time is its the 16 and under Pre-Majors team boys that earned the title and the right to compete in the World Series. The Sumter team played at state level last week in Chipley and Coach Fred Popp said they had to win two games on their first day of play. They were originally slated to begin play on Saturday, July 16, but were rained out and their first games were midweek. We played the host team Chipley. In the first game we won 19-2 in 5 innings. Jared Lozano got the win pitching all five innings and only giving up two runs. He said Lozano continued his hot offensive performance going 1 for 2 with a walk and an RBI. It was a complete team effort. In the second game against Chipley, Sumter won 8-0, he said. Jared Lozano got it started with a solo homerun in the first inning and added another hit later in the game. Every player had at least one hit in both games today. Zach Sullivan went 4-4 in the first game and 2-2 in the second game. The World Series for the 15 and 16 year olds will begin Saturday, July 30. We head to Independence Louisiana next Thursday and start the tournament Saturday at 10 a.m. against South Carolina.

It was odd getting the letter last year but theres just no way to trace who wrote it, said sheriffs Major Gary Brannen. I think the letter writer is telling us exactly what they know, but Im sure if we could talk to them maybe wed be able to find out more information. Investigators did attempt to research inmates in state facilities who were released from prisons or jails the day Edwards was murdered, but there were about 154 of them statewide. We didnt know where the writer was when he heard the information. He could have been in any prison or in any jail in the state. No one from a Lake County detention center released the day of Edwards murder matched the information investigators had, Brannen said. Edwards body was discovered just off W. County Road 48, about three miles west of Interstate 75, by passing motorists who called the sheriffs office. He was last seen as he left his home in Ocala on the way to the Super Bowl Bowling Alley also in Ocala on Oct. 8, 1979, according to sheriffs information. The victim's 1979 Silver Pontiac Trans Am was later found parked and abandoned at the Tampa International Airport. The victims credit card was also used in Tampa by two suspects who were present at the time of sale. Someone had purchased a guitar, a knife, a pair of pants and socks using Edwards credit card in different stores in a Tampa shopping center. Investigators believe the murderer may have sold someone the credit card in exchange for cash. Anyone with information can contact Brannen at the Sumter County Sheriffs Office at 352-7930222.

Theres some very old cast iron piping that needs to be replaced. Air conditioning and heating systems are also scheduled for replacement along with the addition of a fire suppression system. Following the renovation work, a portion of the first floor of the building will become the headquarters for the state attorneys office. Additional work will be done for offices of the clerk of the circuit court. The county plans to request bid proposals for the project in August and expects construction to begin early next year, Arnold said. Also included in the project will be a jail renovation plan that was included in a 1988 bond construction fund for an additional criminal courtroom and other jail modifications estimated to cost $1.3 million. Capping off the projects will be new signage for the courthouse that will coordinate with the City of Bushnells upcoming enhancement project, Arnold said.

Willie Ebe Wofford Jr., 50, was arrested on one count of animal cruelty. He was placed in the Sumter County Detention Center with bond set at $25,000. Wofford was arrested last Tuesday and had a strong odor of alcohol on him, according to sheriffs Capt. Kevin Hofecker. The incident was reported by the pig owners sister who heard the pigs screaming in their pen, according to Hofecker. When she went to the pen to see what was happening, she found Wofford inside with a chain wrapped around his arm attached to a gray pit bull. At the time, the dog was attacking the larger of the two pigs in the pen, according to a deputys report. The smaller hog was on the ground and had been mauled to death. The woman reportedly asked Wofford why he was letting the dog attack the animals. Because your brother owes me $50, he reportedly said. I feed these hogs and Im going to get my money one way or the other. Hofecker said the surviving pig was injured from the attack and the dog was taken into custody by Sumter County Animal Control.

P AGE 4S UMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ULY 28, 2011 Positive changes for Bushnell and courthouse T he face of Bushnell is about to change.With the city slated for an enhancement project in the downtown area and the county making plans to upgrade the look of the historical county courthouse, Bushnells main center of activity will begin looking very different soon. The improvements should be an asset to both the city and the county. The transformation will begin with the city. In a few weeks, groundbreaking is expected to start on a town square park across from City Hall that will include a 35-foot gazebo and a decorative fountain, bicycle paths and new sidewalks. A 50-slot parking area is also planned with decorative pavers, trees and other landscaping near the gazebo. The design work will model the nearby historic Sumter County Courthouse which is also proposed for some renovation work. County commissioners plan to make some changes to the historic building during the upcoming fiscal year. Included in the countys proposed budget is a $4-million expenditure to renovate the building and erect new signage. The outside of the building should have a fresher look with mortar repairs and replacement windows included on the list of projects. Inside, new plumbing and electrical systems are planned as well as an upgrade to the buildings air conditioning and heating system. In order to meet code, installation of a fire suppression system for the older portion of the building is planned The county plans to request bid proposals for the project in August and expects construction to begin early next year. Between both government projects, the area surrounding Bushnell City Hall and the courthouse should have a better image and its needed. Volunteers to help out with pre-school?In these times of not enough money to fund all the preschool programs and services that are necessary to help the less fortunate children in our society, it is important that parents and grandparents step up and volunteer their help. What kind of help are we talking about? In the beginning, the teacher will orient the parent volunteer to the daily routine in the classroom, differentiate between teacher responsibilities and volunteer responsibilities, familiarize the volunteer with the classroom behavior policy, the special needs of the children, the school safety procedures, and the school emergency procedures. The teacher will show the volunteer the physical layout of the school. The volunteer needs to know where the restrooms are, where the office is, where the break room is, and where the emergency exits and fire extinguishers are. She also needs to know where the nurses office is and where the safety kit is. Finally, the teacher will set boundaries for the volunteer. She will tell the volunteer what to call her, first name, last name, etc. and she will say what she will call the volunteer in front of the children. She will let the volunteer know what sorts of tasks she can help the students with and what sorts of tasks, such as grading and assigning discipline, the volunteer should reserve to the teacher. The teacher will acquaint the volunteer with the schools and the classrooms behavior plan. The volunteer needs to know what the rules and procedures are so that she will not be giving misleading information to children. She needs to know what methods the teacher will use to handle both positive and negative behaviors. Moreover, the teacher needs to make the volunteer aware of which students in the classroom have special needs, whether the special needs are the result of behavior problems, learning disabilities, personality problems, and then she will put the volunteer in the picture as to how she will address these special needs. In conclusion, the teacher can be more effective if she has the help and cooperation of some good volunteers. What do you say? Do you want to volunteer for some very worthwhile work? The volunteering will also look good on your record when you apply for jobs.

Well, her spy brain is at it again. She is the quiet type. Always thinking and watching. She is suspicious of everything. Mom likes to dive below the surface. Either, she is a very good spy, or has a vivid imagination. Here is a snippet of a recent conversation we shared. Mom: Why is Frank (my nephew) going to Asia? Kathleen: To visit friends. Mom: Thats his cover story. Kathleen: Huh? His what? Mom: That is what he tells you. I think your cousin Sherry recruited him for the C.I.A. Kathleen: Mom, for the last time Sherry is not in the C.I.A. Mom: Bah! Then explain why she lived in every war zone as a teacher. Kathleen: It was pure coincidence? I am not sure either one of us believed that. Could Frank possibly be a spy? He is 29 and very well traveled. He and his wife, Uma, went to Peru on their honeymoon. They traveled to India, Turkey and Istanbul for vacations. They could have gone to those places at Epcot for half the price. I guess Disney isnt their style. Uma is a doctor and went to China to teach for a month. They backpacked through Italy and France. For the past three weeks, Frank has been in Cambodia, Vietnam and Bangkok. He was visiting friends from college. Really! There are posts on his Facebook Page. In one photo, he is in a shop being fitted for a suit. He looks very James Bondish. Oops, maybe that isnt a good example. Ill say he looks very dapper. Does all this traveling to exotic places make him a spy or is he just a tourist? In the photo of him and his friends at a restaurant, he sure looks like he knows how to handle chopsticks! Boy that is all the proof you need. I admit I like to travel. That doesnt make me a spy. Although, Vietnam is not high on my list of places to visit, Hawaii is more like it. I would love to retrace some of the steps my Dad took when he served in World War II. I grew up during the Vietnam War era. I saw enough of it on the nightly news. I am sure Franks visit was extremely different than my brothers, Kevin, time that he spent there as a Marine. What a world! One relative goes to Vietnam to fight a war and 30 years later another goes there on vacation. I wonder who had more fun. My brother, Kevin, never talks about the war. Never, ever! I would be curious to know if her would ever go back to visit. These days the only traveling he does is to exotic California to see his grandchildren.

OPINIONS INVITED A step beyond Sumter County Times O pinion Letters to the editor Janey Thornton Deputy Undersecretary USDA Food Nutrition and Consumer Services During the regular school year, nearly 21 million kids from low-income households get free and reduced-price meals at school through USDAs National School Lunch Program healthy meals that provide the nutrition they need to grow and thrive. Summer is a different story Though hunger doesnt take a summer vacation, fewer than 3 million kids are fed through USDAs Summer Food Service Program when the weather turns warm and school doors are closed. Thats why we need to redouble our efforts to make sure that the doors to healthy nutrition stay open in schools and parks and community centers, and all the other wonderful places where local sponsors offer USDAs Summer Food Service Program to kids in low-income areas. Kids who might otherwise go hungry We need to ensure that the other 18 million kids who receive healthy meals at school during the regular school year have access to the nutrition they need through the balmy days of summer. So they can return to school in the fall healthy and ready to learn. The good news is everyone can help. In fact, USDA relies on our partners folks like you to highlight the important nutrition benefits provided by the SFSP and other healthy meal options available for low-income children across the country. Whether you are part of an organization or an individual, there is something that everyone can do. Here are a few ways you or your organization can help this summer: Conduct Community Outreach with the National Hunger Hotline. Help ensure families know about the Summer Food Service Program and where kids can go to receive a nutritious meal. They can contact the National Hunger Hotline at 1-866-3-HUNGRY or 1877-8-HAMBRE, or contact their local Summer Food Service Program state agency to find a participating site in their community. Summer Food Service Program state agency contacts can be found at www.summerfood.usda.gov. Encourage sites and sponsors in your community to register and promote their site using the National Hunger Hotline. Volunteer Many Summer Food Service Program Sponsors and Sites need volunteers to help make their proFood thats in, when school is out!

Another great school year at Wildwood Elementary Were proud to announce that Wildwood Elementary received a grade of an A based on the Florida A++ Plan and met 85 percent of the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) targets for 2010. Were excited about the new school year and cant wait to celebrate our sustained success. We continue to treasure the positive atmosphere at our school, and are appreciative of our dedicated staff, eager students, and supportive parents. We look forward to seeing our students at our annual Meet Your Teacher Day on Tuesday, Aug. 9 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. This will provide ample time for students and families to meet teachers, collect class supply lists, and tour our facilities.

In addition, new student registration will be held in the guidance suite during Meet Your Teacher Day. Several documents are required for enrollment: an official birth certificate, a physical examination completed within a year from the opening date of school, an immunization record, and a Social Security card (if available).

P AGE 10SUMTER C OUNTY (FL) T IMES T HURSDAY J ULY 28, 2011 I n the last couple of years resident Ron Berrys interests have led to some new projects on the acreage he and his wife Jan own, just south of Bushnell. The Berrys have become successful gardeners, raising crops of corn, beans, tomatoes, okra and more. While theyve gone the traditional route, with a large patch in the center of the property, Berrys also trying something else. Hes been growing his crops in hay bales. It takes less water and you can put it on concrete, Berry said, explaining that it takes less fertilizer, doesnt leach out, there are less weeds and bugs and the nutrients stay with the plant. The bales can even be used more than once by fencing them to support them. He uses chicken wire to support the bales, but also relies on the old, disintegrating bales to serve as compost for the new plants. For Berry its also a solution. In recent years he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and has been confined to a wheelchair for the past two years, which makes it impossible for him to do traditional gardening. He credits is son Adam with that work, pointing out how much the young man does around the property for him. They carry a pretty heavy load especially my son, Berry said of his wife Jan and his son Adam. But by using the hay bales as foundation, his wife and son can help him get it started and then because the plants are elevated, Berry can maneuver his chair down the center aisle to care for the garden himself. He said he got the idea from a church member who had a stroke and was doing the hay bale gardening at his home. Berry said hes actually even noticed an increase in yield by using the hay bales. He said the number of plants per bale depends on what hes planting. Hes gotten up to six okra plants in one bale. Along with the patch in the back and Berrys hay bale garden, just outside the back door of their home, they have a collection of daylilies for sale out near the front of the property. The Berrys owned a very successful cellular telephone business in past years, but Berry notes the change in his health has affected family finances. Everything I can do to supplement my income, I do, he said, explaining that the vegetables have more than one benefit. They also supplement the food we eat. And they taste better and cost less. Theyre using one room of their barn as storage for lawn items and homegrown onions Florida Sweets dozens of them hanging from the ceiling. He said it will be a long time before he has to purchase an onion. Gardening has been a learning experience for Berry, even though his family grew crops in his youth. Thats because as a teenager I just did what daddy said to do. Im learning as I go. And Berrys added some new flavor to an old standby hes mixed turned soil, water, fertilizer and seed with technology relying on the Internet and YouTube for farming information and how-tos. Hay bales and YouTube producing crops BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesThe hay bale garden is yielding tomatoes and okra. The Berrys have grown several different types of produce including peppers, onions, corn, squash and more. BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesThe hay bales can be reused, even becoming compost as new bales are placed on top of the old. As the structure weakens, Berry uses chicken wire to add support and keep the shape. BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesBerry checks his hay bale garden with a little help from some his most loyal friends, Cody and Jake. The garden includes a pathway that allows Berrys wheelchair to roll through with ease. B RENDAL OCKLEAR Staff Writer BRENDA LOCKLEAR/Sumter County TimesThe Berrys grew Florida sweet onions, hanging the yield in an arid barn for storage. Berry said the crop is expected to last th e family months.

First it was Franklin County with a final score of 13-2. In that game, Cornelius Patterson pitched three innings and he had five strikeouts, said Coach Mike Eastburn. During that same game, Dionte Grant pitched two innings and had three strikeouts, while on the offense, Grant and Nathan Eastburn hit a homerun. Diego Arredondo and Debo Grant made three runs each. The Sumter team took their second win against East Lakeland, winning 95. Patterson pitched for three with five strikeouts, with Diego Arredondo closing the game. In that game, Chandler Lake was three for three with a double and a homerun and it was Austin Legg who hit a homerun in the beginning to break open the game for us, Eastburn said. On Monday night, Bushnell took on DeSoto, taking the win 15-0. Going into the third inning the score was 0-0, he said. Austin Denman got a hit and Austin Legg got a single, then Eastburn hit a homerun which started the hitting for us. He was three for four with two homeruns last night. On the defense, Legg pitched three innings and had four strikeouts He pitched an outstanding game, Eastburn said, adding that some of the other key defense came from Denman and Grant. They were slated to play East Lake on Tuesday afternoon. Our bats have come alive in the state tournament. The team, overall, is just playing very, very well. Eastburn said it was notable because they were such a young team. While most of the players at the tournament were 12, with few 11 year olds, Bushnell has more 11 year-old players and fewer 12 year olds. He said theyve also had a lot of community support. I see a lot of people out there from around the community. Not just from Bushnell, but Wildwood, Webster, Center Hill the whole of Sumter County. Through the week the kids have been busy having fun, doing batting practice during the day and playing games at night. Bushnell has been averaging two homeruns per games, he said.

The Phase I order is intended as an alert to prepare for worsening conditions. Under Phase I, residents are asked to check their irrigation systems to ensure they are working properly. This means testing and repairing broken pipes and leaks, and damaged or tilted sprinkler heads. Residents should also check their irrigation timer to ensure the settings are correct and the rain sensor is working properly in accordance with state law. There are no changes to watering days or times in a Phase I water shortage compared to the Districts year-round water conservation measures. This means lawn and landscape watering remains limited to a two-day-per-week schedule, and residents may only water before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. Some local governments have stricter local ordinances limiting lawn watering to one day per week or using different watering hours, so residents should always check with their local government or utility. Our rainy season has gotten off to a slow start, said Lois Sorensen, District demand management program manager. The regions public water supplies are in relatively good shape for now, but we may need to consider stricter measures if the rest of the rainy season isnt more consistently productive. When Phase I first went into effect, water utilities and their local governments were expected to review and revise their watering restriction enforcement procedures. The extension means they must continue to report enforcement activity to the District on a monthly basis. For additional information about water restrictions and water conservation, please contact your local utility or visit the Districts website at www.WaterMatters.org/con servation/. To report a possible violation, call 1-800848-0499 or email Water.Restrictions@WaterMatters.org/. Residents urged to check their irrigation system Municipal electric utility managers from throughout Florida elected six of their own to lead a statewide power agency in 2011-2012, and heading up the agency is Bushnell City Manager Vince Ruano. Elections for the Florida Municipal Power Agencys board of directors and AllRequirements Project Executive Committee took place at the Agencys annual meeting held recently in Palm Beach. Members of FMPA reelected Vince Ruano, as chairman of the board of directors for 2011-2012. This is Ruanos third consecutive term as chairman. Ruano has served as a member of FMPAs board of directors since 1985. Previously, he served five years as vice chairman, nine years as secretary and four years as assistant secretary-treasurer. FMPAs board of directors makes policy decisions for the power supply projects of FMPA, except the All-Requirements Project. Each of FMPAs 30 members appoints one representative to the board of directors, and board officers are elected by popular vote of the members. FMPAs Executive Committee includes one appointed representative from each member of FMPAs All-Requirements Project. The Executive Committee independently governs and manages the business affairs of the AllRequirements Project. FMPAs All-Requirements Project provides all the wholesale power needs of 14 Florida cities, including Bushnell, Clewiston, Fort Meade, Fort Pierce, Green Cove Springs, Town of Havana, Jacksonville Beach, Key West, Kissimmee, Lake Worth, Leesburg, Newberry, Ocala and Starke. All-Requirements enables municipal utilities of all sizes to become owners not just customers of an efficient statewide power system. Bushnell city manager elected to lead statewide agency Vince Ruano Air Force Airman Corey J. Osborne graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas. The airman completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills. Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force. He is the son of Donna Fredericks of County Road 128D, Wildwood. Osborne graduated in 2010 from The Villages Charter High School, Oxford. IN THE SERVICE Now that construction has begun on Veterans Memorial at Fountain Park, the largest such memorial in Florida honoring those who have served our country, the organization has made room to include veterans from Sumter County and the Villages. When we conceived the project we originally planned to include Sumter County, according to Executive Director Don Van Beck, but we were afraid there would not be room. By adjusting how we place names on the walls we are able to accommodate a lot more vets, so we are no longer restricting participants to just Lake County. The memorial is being constructed alongside Fountain Lake near downtown Leesburg. It will have 7-foot-high granite walls and be 60 feet in diameter. The center monolith is currently on display on Main Street in Leesburg. Men and women who have served during wartime are eligible to have their names engraved on the walls with a donation of $15 to cover the cost of engraving. A touch screen computer will provide a convenient way to locate the names and provide information about the persons service. Residents of Lake and Sumter counties and the Villages simply need to provide discharge papers (normally a DD214) and proof of residency, such as a voters registration card. Relatives of deceased veterans may provide such information, and those still active will need to show proof of service. A person need not have been sent overseas. Bricks are available for $60 to honor those who are not residents or who did not serve during war time. For more information contact the office, 411 W. Main Street in downtown Leesburg, 314-2100, or visit the website at www.lakeveterans.com. The memorial is being constructed alongside Fountain Lake near downtown Leesburg.

Now hes letting others in on his secrets as he teams up with Hellmanns and Best Foods to help America build the perfect sandwich. Everyone has an opinion about how to make the perfect sandwich, from the must-have ingredients to the highly personal sandwich architecture, said Flay. No matter the sandwich recipe, I always use Hellmanns mayonnaise to bring out the best in my sandwich, plus I have to cut the bread diagonally to make it just right. Thats my idea of a perfect sandwich. Here are some of Flays tips on how he adds his personal touch to sandwiches: Thick, crusty breads like ciabatta are great for sandwiches to help comple ment softer ingredients like tomatoes and cheese. Bring a crunch to your sandwich with vegetables like sliced cucumber or fennel. Not only do they add a fresh taste, they wont wilt when they come in contact with condiments. Add bright colors to the sandwich with parsley leaves, finely diced red onions, or green, yellow and red peppers. Dont be afraid to experiment with new flavors. Jazz up your sandwich with a little cranberry relish, chopped, toasted nuts, lemon-basil or even a little thousand island coleslaw the skys the limit.

A lifelong educator, Brogan began his career as a classroom teacher before serving as a dean of students, assistant principal, principal, superintendent, Floridas Commissioner of Education and as Floridas Lieutenant Governor overseeing education policy for Governor Jeb Bush. I am really humbled by this award. When you start a mission, youre not thinking about what you can get out of the mission but what that mission can provide for others. Actually while being presented the award, I was thinking we start Summer feeding and activities on Tuesday, the 21st. We need program supplies, travel monies to pick up the meals from Leesburg and how will we get this accomplish. I had to force myself to focus on the moment. This wouldnt have been possible without the help of the YPAs, Inc. sponsors, supporters, board, volunteers and my family support. said Steele. YPAs, Inc. has three summer projects: 1) Summer feeding and activities, a collaboration with the Royal Library Association, in the Community Of Royal with approx. 60 youth being fed. 2) Golf For Art youth tournament, July 14, Continental Country Club Wildwood Middle and High students, $25 registration, with guest appearance by NFL Super Star, Darrell Jackson. 3) Scholarship dollars for Brenton McNeil, accepted at Alvin Ailey Dance School, NYC and Julissa Culbreth, accepted at University of Florida; two of YPAs, Inc. dance members.

(352) 547-7276 P rogressive veterinarians are integrating alternative or complimentary therapies with conventional veterinarian care for their clients who are seeking more options to help their pets. A revolutionary technology that offers significant benefits for animals is Lazer Therapy. This relatively new therapy uses a penetrating light on damaged tissue that creates a soothing warmth during treatment. It increases blood flow to the afflicted area, thereby decreasing pain while promoting healing. The non-invasive therapy is used in a wide range of applications. When used after many types of surgery, it speeds post recovery time. It is used to reduce inflammation due to arthritis, and will stimulate and promote healing to soft tissue injuries, such as ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Laser therapy brought relief to animals the have suffered from back injuries, back pain, disc disease, lameness, hip and elbow dysplasia, ulcers, and burns. Some local veterinarians are now using this technology in their practices. When a pet is not responding to traditional pain medications, or an alternative treatment is preferred, a client may search for a veterinarian that performs acupuncture in his practice. The ancient Chinese technique uses small gauge needles that are applied to various points on the body. The needles can be used with or without an electric current. It can be an effective non-steroidal pain reliever, without the side effects caused by steroids. A variety of animal ailments, from arthritis, nerve damage, muscle spasms, and nausea are treated successfully with acupuncture. There are many more non-traditional treatments that are now available to our furry family members, such as chiropractic manipulation, herbal medicines, homeopathy, massage therapies, etc. Research your options, and seek out only certified professionals. Regularly veterinarian check ups and preventative care will hopefully be all your pet will need to live a long and healthy life. But when conventional medicine is not enough, ask your veterinarian about alternative options. Together, both you and your veterinarian can make decisions that will improve your pets quality of life.
