Ernie's Drug and Gifts i)honc762-5800 ErnicKcilh, l)harmacist Your liomcto~vn pharmacy LOCATED BESIDE FOOD CITY 2. Lowered Rate Necessary to Offset Increased Assessment: The tax rate which would levy the same amount of real estate tax as last year, when multiplied by the new total assessed value of real estate with the exclusions mentioned above, would be 15.4 cents per $100 of assessed value. This rate will be known as the "lowered tax rate." 3. Effective Rate Increase: The Town of St. Paul proposes to adopt its current tax rate of 18 cents per $100 of assessed value. The difference between the lowered tax rate and the proposed rate would be 2.6 cents per $100, or 16.9 percent. This difference will be known as the "effective tax rate increase." Individual property taxes may, however, increase at a percentage greater than or less than the above percentage. 4. Proposed Total Budget Increase: Based on the proposed real property tax rate and changes in other revenues, the total budget of the Town of St. Paul will exceed last year's by more than 13 percent. A pubhc- hearing on the increase will be held on Monday, July 20, 2009 at 5:45 p.m. in Council Chambers at the St. Paul Town Hall located at 16531 Russell St., St. Paul, VA.

This condition necessitates insulin replacement therapy. Children who have increased thirst, frequent urination, extreme hunger, and unexplained weight loss may have symptoms of this condition. Type 1 diabetes occurs in children as a result of an autoimmune process in which the immune system targets for destruction, special cells in the pancreas called islet cells. The insulin produced is secreted into the bloodstream. When insulin is not produced in adequate amounts, Sugar builds up in the bloodstream. This can lead to complications that may affect the heart, blood vessels, eyes, and kidneys, if blood sugar levels are not controlled. Treatment of type 1 diabetes in childhood consists of regularly monitoring blood sugar, irmulin therapy, healthy diet, and adequate exercise. There are a variety of insulin therapies available for the treatment of type 1 diabetes. Insulin lispro (Humalog) and insulin aspart (NovoLog) are rapid-acting. Regular insulin, such as human insulin (Humulin R, Novolin R) begins working within 30 minutes. Intermediate-acting insulin, such as NPH insulin (Humufin N, Novolin N), begins working within 2 to 4 hours. Insulin glargine (Lantus) provides an effect for up to 24 hours. ’~'t We Now Carry $1 -~ a Great Selection of $t.00 items! $'! • 1 See us for all your health and beauty needs PUBLIC FAX # 276-762-0213 announces their annual picnic scheduled June 25 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Bullitt Park in Big Stone Gap.
