HEALTH CENTRE NEWS
WALK-IN SICK CLINIC:
Why do supermarkets make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front?
Monday to Friday 8:30 to 11:30 am 3:00 to 4:00 pm
PUBLIC HEALTH HOURS (Please make appointment) Monday to Friday 1:00 to 3:00 pm Only EMERGENCY needs will be seen after regular hours or on holidays. Call 994-4444 or 811
Why do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, and a diet coke? Why do banks leave vault doors open and then chain the pens to the counters? Why do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in our driveways and put our useless junk in the garage?
EVER WONDER... Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?
Call 994-4444 to book appointments.
Why can't women put on mascara with their mouth closed?
Dr. Bousquet – October 7th, 9th, 10th, 21st, 23rd, & 24th Please bring your Health Care Card. ***NOTE: People who have an appointment will be expected to bring ALL of their current medications with them when they see the doctor. When managing your medications, please renew your prescription in plenty of time so that you DO NOT RUN OUT!!!! Regulations have changed and only seeing a doctor will get your prescription renewed. It takes time because doctors’ clinics only happen every 2 weeks, are frequently fully booked, and takes 1 week to come from Whitehorse by mail.

Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'? Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word? Why is it that doctors and attorneys call what they do 'practice'? Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavoring, and dish washing liquid made with real lemons? Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker? Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour? Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food? Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes? Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections? You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?? Why don't sheep shrink when it rains? Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together? If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?

Department of Environment The 2014 fall Hunting Season seems to be going quite well in the Faro District. Winter is fast approaching, and we are all getting settled in for the cold months ahead. Reminder! Moose and Caribou: November 15th is the deadline for kill reports for licenced hunters who harvested a moose or caribou in October. Wood Bison, Sheep, Goats, Grizzly or Black Bears, and Wolves: Compulsory submissions for anyone who harvested wood bison, sheep, goats, grizzly or black bears, and wolves are due no later than 15 days after the end of the month in which the animal was killed. Deer and Elk: Deer and elk hides, and elk heads, must be submitted to an Environment Yukon office within 72 hours of the kill. The deer incisor bar and the antlers â€“ with all or part of the skull attached â€“ must be brought in within 15 days after the month in which the deer was killed. Detailed information about compulsory submissions, biological samples and kill reports is available in the 2014-2015 Yukon Hunting Regulations Summary available where hunting licences are sold and on the Environment Yukon website. Your harvest information is important and helps future wildlife management decisions. For those of you who have had a successful hunt, please be sure to care and store your meat properly as to not waste any or attract bears or other wildlife. We would like to remind all people of the importance of reporting violations they may witness during the hunting season, or at any time of year for that matter. To report violations, visit a Conservation Officer or call our office at 994-2862. If someone wishes to remain anonymous, they may do so by phoning the Turn-In-Poachers toll free hotline at 1-800-661-0525, available 24 hours a day.
Good luck with the wood gathering and we wish everyone a great winter ahead! Stay Warm! TJ & Leithe
