"Beagles Need Special Care" Says Nittany Beagle Rescue

Beagles Need Special Care
This February, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John McCain and Pervez Musharraf dominated the headlines. But for a moment their personalities were upstaged by 15 inches of floppy-eared cuteness. Uno the 15-inch beagle charmed his way to victory at the 132nd Westminster Dog Show in Madison Square Garden, becoming the first ever beagle to win Westminster’s Best in Show honors. Uno’s triumph and subsequent media tour has lifted the profile of the beagle to the point where it could become the next "hot" dog breed.

New Coalition Calls for Fair Funding of Nursing Home Residents in PA Budget

HARRISBURG (Feb. 20, 2008) – A new coalition, “Pennsylvanians for Quality Care,” today launched a statewide campaign against the Rendell administration’s proposed 2008-09 state budget, which includes no increase in Medical Assitance rates for the care of Pennsylvania’s most ill and elderly residents in nursing homes.

Ron Barth, president and CEO of PANPHA, said cuts translate into tax increases for some of Pennsylvania’s most vulnerable families.

“The dirty little secret is this Administration expects nursing home residents and their families who pay for their own care to pay extra – a hidden tax if you will – to make up the shortfall of the Medicaid rate,” Barth said.  “Or they expect the hard working staff of nursing homes and personal care facilities to be paid less than other health care providers or to get fewer benefits.”

In the coming weeks, coalition members will be discussing Rendell’s failure to adequately fund nursing home costs at venues across the state.  Event, news and the latest information is available at: www.PaForQualityCare.org.
