Armed Forces Day May 15 Armed Forces Day is Saturday, May 15. With members of the mil- itary involved in Kosovo, Iraq and other deployments, now is the time to say a special 'q~hank You" to them. Yet, you cannot find a greeting card in most stores for Armed Forces Day. That is why The American Legion has created a special card for sending via e-mail. A visit to The American Legion's web site, www.legion.orq is the first step. Just click on the link from the front page, fill in the e- mail information, select the appropriate branch of service song, type your message, click on "Send" and the card is on its way. There is no charge. This is the first time The American Legion has undertaken an Armed Forces Day project. The nation's largest veterans organiza- tion will monitor usage. If the program is successful, the artwork offerings will be expanded in future years. Increasing American forces are being called upon to do more with fewer resources. These deployments to countless spots around the world bring hardships. Legionnaires encourage everyone to let those in the military know that their sacrifice and service are appreciated. Since commercial cards are not readily available, The American Legion established this tribute by e-mail communica- tions.

IIII I I II lUl Horse Liniment Eases Arthritis Pain OCALA, FL -- An ingredient derived from hot peppers that decreases in- flammation in racehorse's legs, is now recognized as safe and effective for human use. The ingredient has been formulatcd into a product called :~ RTH- RxTM and comes in a strength designed for humans. Researchers are excited and say the formula can relieve arthri- tis pain for millions. Developed by the Phillips Gulf Cor- poration, ARTH-Rx is a breakthrough in the treatment of painful disorders ranging from minor aches and pains to more serious conditions such as arthri- tis, bursitis, rheumatism, tendonitis, backache and more. Although the mechanism by which ARTH-Rx works to relieve pain is not totally clear, scientists suggest that pain is relieved because ARTH-Rx in- tercepts the messenger substance that sends pain signals to the brain. ARTH-Rx is available in a conve- nient roll-on applicator without a pre- scription. According to a spokesper- son for the company, due to the over- whelming demand for ARTH-Rx, sup- plies are sometimes limited. ARTH- Rx can also be ordered by calling 1- 800-7294446. ~ap~e ARTH-Rx is available at: BIG BEAR DISCOUNT DRUG 218 W. Lee St. 727-2150 Arth-Rx Oral with Glucosamin and I I AND NOW AVAILABLE...
