Page 14 POST-GAZETTE, APRIL 26, 2013 LO SAPEVATE CHE ... "Che vergogna, adesso basta. Vattene via di casa." Sono le parole rivolte da una moglie al marito chela tradiva, non con un'amante ma in qualcosa di piu' profondo che ha a che fare con i principi morali: onesta' Ad assistere alla scena, sbigottiti, i militari del nucleo di Polizia Tributaria della Guardia di Finanza di Novara che avevano appena svelato che quel coniuge, da lei sempre giudicato irreprensibile, era un evasore fiscale. "In tanti anni di attivita' e' la prima volta che accade una cosa del genere," hanno raccontato I finanzieri. Quando hanno suonato il campanello dell'abitazione di un piccolo imprenditore edile, nella zona di Borgomanero, tutti potevano aspettarsi tramite che essere causa di una separazione familiare. Infatti quando hanno contestato all'uomo di essere un evasore fiscale, la moglie si e' scatenata e, detto fatto, he cercato di aUontanare subito il marito. "Siamo riusciti a riportare la calma per qualche momento di difficolta," hanno commentato al commando della Guardia di Finanza, "in modo da compiere iI nostro lavoro senza troppi intralci." Ma poi non hanno potuto fare altro che lasciare i due coniugi soli per cercare di risolvere i loro problema. Alla fine, il piu' grande problema non era quello di dover e' pagare una larga somma per evasion fiscale quanto riportare la pace in famiglia. DID YOU KNOW THAT ... "What a shame: that's enough now! Get out of here." Those words were addressed by a wife to her husband who had betrayed her, not with another woman, but with something more serious which has to do with moral principles: honesty! To witness the argument, totally dumbfounded, were the tax agents of the Fiscal Police in Novara, who had just unveiled that her husband, who she thought was honest, actually was a tax evader! "In many years of service this is the first time we have witnessed such a scene," stated the fiscal agents. When they rang the door bell at the small contractor's residence in the Borgomanero area, they ex- pected anything but the extreme outburst of a conjugal sepa- ration. In fact, when the agents charged the man of being a tax evader, the wife exploded and demanded, at once, that he leave the premises. "We were able to bring about some serenity in a difficult situation," commented the officers at the main station, "to do our job without further inter- ruption." We left the premises leaving the couple alone to try to find a solution to their problems. Ultimately the major problem was the payment of a large sum of money for hav- ing evaded paying taxes for years, raLher than bringing back a peaceful coexistence!

Run date: 4/26/13 News Briefs (Continued from Page 1) Everything was caught on the surveillance tape and seemed to be a good argu- ment for the Second Amend- ment. One of the robbers held a gun to Luis' brother- in-law, a struggle ensued and Luis grabbed a baseball bat and started swinging at the gun with the bat as his brother-in-law tossed a fire extinguisher. Quizhpe was hit in his leg but the injury was minor. Liberals say with univer- sal background checks these bad guys would have been unarmed. Yeah, like these two thugs bought their fire- arms legally to begin with, huh? Our Vice President Joe Biden says these background checks are not a prequel to gun confiscation and a national registry. However, under New York's SAFE Act, it appears that both patient- doctor privilege and the Second Amendment are endangered. Under the SAFE Act, guns can be taken away from owners when a permit-holder or someone applying for a gun permit are receiving mental health ser- vices or taking meds and are likely to engage in con- duct that would result in serious harm to themselves or others." Who defines the word "likely"? Thinking about all this makes me somewhat nervous about Obamacare and the idea of putting our medical records into a national database. George Orwell's "1984" ap- pears to have finally landed in America. Quote to Note "There is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women and there are families." -- Margaret Thatcher Mental Health Laws Need Changing As someone finishing up a 40 year career in both direct care and support service for the State Department of Mental Health the recent shooting tragedies has showed the great need to stop blocking out parents whose children suffer from mental illness when their kids hit 18 years old as ex- plained in a recent piece in USA Today, written by Rachel Pruchno, who is director of research at the New Jersey Institute for Successful Aging. She is also the author of a soon to be released memoir, "Surrounded by Madness" which should be "must reading" for our law- makers up on Capitol Hill who too often can't see the forest for the trees. Her daughter was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at 16 and borderline disorder at 18. For this mother, her daugh-ter's 18 th birthday turned her "from valued member of the health care team into its pariah." I agree that too often the health care system is in crisis be- cause families get excluded from being an active part of their adult children's recov- ery. The parents of Jared Loughner, Amy and Randy, have said they told their son to get help but couldn't make him do so because of the laws preventing them from taking action. They were turned into helpless by- standers because of the law. Did you know that accord- ing to the National Institute of Mental Health there are an estimated 114 million Americans suffering from serious mental illness and about half of them lack awareness about their ill- ness and thus compromise their abilities to make informed decisions. Yet at 18 years old they have full control of their healthcare and in many states treat- ment can't begin until some- one exhibits dangerous be- havior or commits an act of violence like many recent shooters. The law in effect protects them from help until those individuals kill people and then the law wants to lock them up. We need pro-active not reactive systems in play or these mass shootings and deaths will continue. Jared Loughner needed help the weeks leading up to the day he killed 16 and in- jured 19 others at the strip mall in Arizona. His parents reportedly pleaded with him to get help but he ignored their pleas. I agree with Rachel Pruchno who stated, "Laws should take a more reasoned ap- proach that empower fami- lies who know when there are problems and want what is best for all involved. It is time to realign laws with science and compassion." Freeway Says (Continued from Page 7) ing for the foilowing features in a wheelchair/cart device for your dog: Sturdy construction. Ease of mobility. Comfortable surfaces and materials, including bind- ings and/or straps that aren't too tight. Inability to tip over. Appropriate wheels de- signed to handle the surface areas of your indoor and out- door living environment An acceptable weight and bulk that won't overexert your pet. "The ease of fit and the owner's ability, possibly by him or herself, to put the pet in the cart are also big fac- tors to consider," Bolger said. Contrary to popular belief, Evans said that dogs con- fined to a cart or wheelchair usually don't try to chew their way out of it unless they experience discomfort. "The more uncomfortable they feel, the more likely they are to try to get away from it," he said. Normally, the dog should accept the device like a glove within about two or three days. If the dog is chewing on it, check the pressure points. Is the animal resting on the bindings or straps? Have any sores developed? Has the dog been left in one position too long? Bolger said that all pets confined to a cart or wheel- chair should be monitored often to ensure that they don't chew it apart or become dislodged from it. THE PATH TO HAPPINESS Having a bum leg or two doesn't necessarily mean that your dog can't have fun while strapped to a wheelchair or cart. Normal walking, playing and exer- cising can actually be quite beneficial toward rehabilita- tion goals. Ask your vet what activity levels are safe and acceptable based on your pet's condition. "If your pet is recovering from surgery, you should always follow your vet's ad- vice on movement allowed," Bolger said. In addition, a dog fitted with a mobility-assistance device needs a home environment conducive to wheeling. Evans and Bolger offered the follow- ing suggestions. Provide as much open space as possible indoors and outdoors, carts and wheel- chairs often have wide turn- ing circles that require a lot of clearance to turn properly. Remove as many obstacles as possible, including coffee tables, indoor furniture and outdoor rocks that can block the dog's access. Be sure that wires and cords are not in the dog's path, which can trip or tip your pet. Consider installing a tem- porary ramp to allow your dog to clear doorway thresholds and slightly raised levels between rooms. I would like to add that car- ing and loving your pet is what unconditional love is really about. Making your pets comfortable to whatever quality of life they have so you can enjoy us as much as we enjoy being with you. I only remember once see- ing a dog in a wheelchair and I was amazed at how this little guy got around and was so happy he could walk. What pet owners wouldn't do for their pets? That's all for now ...
