The key word, of course, is 'interact' because we don't necessarily always understand one another. I find it confounding and amusing at the same time which I guess makes me special. For example, when someone asks a question (unless it is a rhetorical question.., but let's not complicate matters) it is because they don't know something and seek to solicit answers. Simple enough, ~ There are questions that are right? But sometimes the one loaded, "Are you really going making the inquiry follows up fishing instead of being with me the answerer with a response in the deliVery room?" There are of "No, I think this is correct." questions that come out of the Confounded? Then why did ~ou blue "Honey, I think a new bass ask the question in the first place if you knew the answer? My other favorite exchange is when someone asks, me for example, a question. "I don't know" is my response. Then you get the look. The one that says "what do you mean you don't know?" No, really just what I said. I don't know is a perfectly cromulent response. "Is cromulent a word?" I don't boat would make a perfect gift for the baby, don't you?" And questions best left unanswered "What do you think will happen' to you when you get back from the lake?" We all have lots of questions and lots of answers but that does not mean we communicate well, does it? I don't know, ask someone else. Did you enjoy this week's an answer from another person, know but I saw it used on an column? Good, I thought so.

Rose legislation to help fire departments save lives and save money signed into law Legislation aimed at saving lives for those suffering life- threatening allergic reactions, as well as helping local fire and rescue departments keep spending in line, was signed into law by Gov. Bruce Rauner Aug. 19. The law goes into effect Jan. 1,2017. State Sen. Chapin Rose (R-Mahomet) sponsored Senate Bill 3335 and credits the Broadlands/Longview Fire Protection District in Champaign County for bringing this issue to him. "Our budget for two rural fire departments is very limited," said Jim Jones, a trustee with the Broadlands/Longview Fire Protection District. "Right now, we are forced to buy four adult Epi-Pens and four junior Epi- Pens every year, which cost us a total of $2,400 a year. This would allow us to purchase vials instead, for less than $50. That's a huge cost savings. This will help immensely, both with our budget and our ability to administer the drug more often, if needed?' "You just never know when a life-threatening allergic reaction may occur," Rose said. "It could be you, your friend, or a stranger. Epinephrine is a critical, first- line defense for making sure an allergic reaction doesn't turn deadly. This legislation expands the tools our emergency responders can use when they need to administer epinephrine, while making it less costly to administer the drug." Senate Bill 3335 will allow Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) to dispense epinephrine using a syringe, drawn from a glass vial or ampule. Under current law, it can only be dispensed using the far more expensive epinephrine auto- injectors. "This common-sense proposal is just another tool our emergency responders can utilize to save lives," Rose said. "It will also save our rural communities a lot of money as vials are less expensive than epinephrine auto-injectors. Additionally, epinephrine auto- injectors have a shorter shelf life, so many times, they have to be disposed of without ever even being used."
