— An ingredi-ent often used to treat inflamma-tion in racehorse’s legs, is now back on the market in its originaldoctor recommended formula.According to a national drugstore survey, the formula at onetime became so popular that it roseto the top of pharmacy sales for topical pain relievers. But the com- pany marketing the product at thetime changed the formula and sales plummeted. One of the inventorsof the original formula has broughtit back to the market under thetrade name ARTH ARREST andsays it can relieve pain for millions.ARTH ARREST works by adual mechanism whereby one in-gredient relieves pain immediately,while a second ingredient seeks outand destroys the pain messenger signal before it can be sent to the brain.

House passes far-reachinganti-abortion bill
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republican-led House onTuesday passed a far-reaching anti-abortion bill that conserva-tives saw as a milestone in their 40-year campaign against legal-ized abortion and Democrats condemned as yet another exampleof the GOP war on women.The legislation, sparked by the murder conviction of aPhiladelphia late-term abortion provider, would restrict almostall abortions to the first 20 weeks after conception, defying lawsin most states that allow abortions up to when the fetus becomesviable, usually considered to be around 24 weeks.It mirrors 20-week abortion ban laws passed by some states,and lays further groundwork for the ongoing legal battle thatabortion foes hope will eventually result in forcing the SupremeCourt to reconsider the 1973 Supreme Court decision, Roe v.Wade, that made abortion legal.It passed 228-196, with 6 Democrats voting for it and 6Republicans voting against it.In the short term, the bill will go nowhere. The Democratic-controlled Senate will ignore it and the White House says thepresident would veto it if it ever reached his desk. The WhiteHouse said the measure was “an assault on a woman’s right tochoose” and “a direct challenge to Roe v. Wade.”But it was a banner day for social conservatives who havegenerally seen their priorities overshadowed by economic andbudgetary issues since Republicans recaptured the House in2010.Penny Nance, president of Concerned Women for America,called it “the most important pro-life bill to be considered by theU.S. Congress in the last 10 years.”Marjorie Dannenfeiser, president of the Susan B. AnthonyList — a group that seeks to eliminate abortion — said the leg-islation differed significantly from past abortion measures in thatit restricts, rather than merely controls, the abortion procedure.Democrats chided Republicans for taking up a dead-endabortion bill when Congress is doing little to promote jobs andeconomic growth. Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi called it “yetanother Republican attempt to endanger women. It is disrespect-ful to women. It is unsafe for families and it is unconstitutional.”Democrats also said the decision by GOP leaders to appeasetheir restless base with the abortion vote could backfire onRepublican efforts to improve their standing among women.Corn $6.94Wheat $6.63Soybeans $15.29

Answers in Thursday’s
A fellow bought a new Mercedes and was out on theinterstate for a nice evening drive. The top was down, the breeze was blowing through what was left of his hair and he decided to open her up. As the needle jumped upto 80 mph, he suddenly saw flashing red and blue lightsbehind him.“There’s no way they can catch a Mercedes,” hethought to himself and opened her up further. The needlehit 90, 100…. Then the reality of the situation hit him.“What am I doing?” he thought and pulled over.The cop came up to him, took his license without aword and examined it and the car. “It’s been a long day, this is the end of my shift and it’s Friday the 13th. I don’t feel like more paperwork, so if you can give me an excuse for your driving that I haven’t heard before, you can go.”
The guy thinks for a second and says, “Last week mywife ran off with a cop. I was afraid you were trying togive her back!”“Have a nice weekend,” said the officer.
