Beatrice Daily Sun Wednesday, OctOber 3, 2018 | A5 00 1 BDS_BEAT-10-3-A5_1 SCRAPBOOK SUBMITTED TO THE DAILY SUN The VFW’s annual poppy campaign begins Oct. 12. Poppies are made by dis- abled veterans in hospi- tals and veterans homes throughout the country and used to raise funds for veterans’ causes. Members will start dis- tributing poppies on Oct. 12 and accepting donations to be used to benefit dis- abled veterans, widows and orphans of deceased vet- erans, funding for veterans rehabilitation services and for direct relief to the fam- ilies of needy and deceased veterans. The poppies also serve as a memorial to the fallen of all wars in which the U.S. has been involved. The VFW has been distributing pop- pies nationwide since May 1922. The 2018 Buddy Poppy Girl for the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1077 and Auxiliary in Beatrice is 11-year-old Sara Dodge. Sara is the daughter of Dennis and Salome Dodge. She is a fifth-grader at St. Paul’s Lutheran School. VFW’s poppy campaign kicks off next week COURTESY PHOTO 2018 buddy Poppy Girl sara dodge, center, is pictured with Leon Hagan, left, commander of the VFW and Faye Hagan, president of the VFW auxiliary. SUBMITTED TO THE DAILY SUN Gwenith Closs-Colgrove, president of the Great Plains Welsh Heritage Centre in Wymore, participated in a vocal contest in association with the North American Festival of Wales over the Labor Day weekend. Closs-Colgrove was awarded first place in the Adult Solo competition. The contest was held in conjunction with the North American Festival of Wales in Alexandria, Virginia. While in attendance at the festival, Closs-Colgrove was nominated to serve on the Board of Trustees for the Welsh National Association of America. She will serve a three-year term. “This will bring more rec- ognition to our wonderful museum located in Wymore, Nebraska,” said Closs-Col- grove in a press release.

Dear Doctor: Be-tween my sister and me, we have three kids with serious aller- gies (two peanut and one bee sting), and each of their schools requires us to provide them with an EpiPen for emergencies. Now there’s a shortage and we can’t find even one EpiPen, let alone three. What’s going on? Are there any other op- tions for us? Dear Reader: As any- one with a serious allergy knows, an EpiPen can save your life. Whether the trigger is a food, a drug, an insect sting or bite, or another kind of allergen, the result can range from serious dis- comfort all the way to anaphylaxis, a severe and potentially life-threaten- ing reaction that requires immediate treatment. In- jecting the contents of an EpiPen into the thigh re- leases a calibrated dose of epinephrine, a chemical that eases the symptoms of an allergic reaction by narrowing blood vessels and opening the airways of the lungs. Although the relief from symptoms is swift, it’s not prolonged. That’s why, after an aller- gic reaction that requires the use of an EpiPen, it’s important to immediately seek medical care. Since last spring, there has been a national short- age of EpiPens available. According to Mylan, the company that markets the EpiPen, this is due to a variety of production and delivery issues. At the same time, with mil- lions of kids headed back to school in late August and early September, pharmacies have seen a marked spike in demand. As you noted in your letter, schools require parents to provide one — and often two — EpiPens for children with known allergies. Add in sports teams and after-school programs, as well as the ones needed at home, and the demand is far out- stripping the supply. Parents are reporting that despite calls to phar- macies throughout their areas, they are unable to fill their prescriptions. According to data col- lected by patient advo- cacy groups, up to 80 percent of parents in 43 states have been either unable to fill their EpiPen prescriptions or were able to purchase only part of what they needed. A ge- neric (and less expensive) version of the EpiPen, manufactured by Mylan, is also in short supply. Meanwhile, another ge- neric ephedrine auto-in- jector, to be produced by the Israeli company Teva Pharmaceuticals, is not yet available. The EpiPen shortage has resulted in action from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. In late August, the agency extended the expiration dates of specific lots of EpiPens by four months. Although EpiPen is by far the best-selling epineph- rine auto-injector on the market at this time, there are several other FDA-ap- proved brands available, including Adrenaclick and Auvi-Q. Each re- quires its own prescrip- tion, so a visit to the family doctor or a clinic is necessary. However, these alternative versions may not be covered by insur- ance. For information on pharmacies that still have a stock of EpiPens available, Mylan has asked patients to call its customer relations department at 1-800- 796-9526.

EpiPen shortage has parents scrambling Dear Annie: My niece, “Becky,” is getting married next month, and according to my younger brother “John,” I can’t attend the wedding because I have a beard. Personally, I think I look like Hem- ingway. I am a food writer and photo journalist. My barber always says, “Don’t shave! You look good with your beard.” My family has about 40 members, and if I started shaving off my beard for each one, I would never wear a beard again. I am also known for my beard and have a travel and food blog named after it. My niece invited me by formal invitation, and I replied affirmatively. So, do I shave the beard and feast with my big Italian fam- ily? Or do I not shave and spend the day home alone as in the past? — Gray- beard Dear Graybeard: It sounds as if you’re the gray sheep of the family. So be it. You don’t need to shear your wool for anyone. Your niece invited you — all of you, including your beard — and you said yes. Go to the wedding. Eat and dance, and look out for clippers. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Perception vs. Truth,” the woman who wrote about her husband’s flying into a jealous rage because she danced with another man. I am afraid that when you wrote “everyone makes mistakes,” the woman may have taken that to imply that she was the one who’d made a mistake. Please clarify that. (As a victim of controlling behavior, she is probably conditioned by the controller to see prob- lems as being her fault.) What experienced do- mestic violence profes- sionals say about rages like the one she described is this: These rages are al- ways about control. Even when jealousy is commu- nicated in a more reason- able manner, it is about control. It’s an easy and effective way to control someone without accept- ing any responsibility at all for being controlling. It puts all the responsibility on the victim to behave in the way the controller de- fines as OK. She accepted that re- sponsibility when she vowed, “Of course, I will no longer dance with any- one else.” From the view- point of the abuser, that means “mission accom- plished.” Control in place. To accept that responsi- bility (never dancing with anyone else) acknowledges that the problem here is her dancing with someone else, as opposed to being that her husband is using unfair methods to control her. It sets up a precedent. Rages work to control her behavior. I believe she should try to continue dancing with others, assuming she’s in an environment where casual exchanging of partners is the norm. — Domestic Violence Advocate Dear Domestic Vio- lence Advocate: The line about how everyone makes mistakes was unclear, and I appreciate your bringing that to my attention. That was meant to be about her husband, as the letter writer was not at all in the wrong. Thank you for your advocacy on behalf of victims and survivors of domestic violence. I’d like to take this opportunity to publish the number for The National Domestic Violence Hotline: 800- 799-7233. Forced to shave for a wedding?
