Tierra Madre Horse Sanctuary celebrates ASPCA Help-A-Horse Day on Saturday, April 23

CAVE CREEK — Tierra Madre Horse Sanctuary will be celebrating the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) national Help-A-Horse Day on Saturday, April 23 and competing for a chance to win up to $25,000 in grant prizes to assist with their efforts to make the best forever home for horses who literally have nowhere else to go.
In honor of the ASPCA’s 150th Anniversary celebration this year, the contest has been expanded to include a total of $100,000 in grant prizes, including a grand prize of $25,000.
This nationwide competition is for equine rescues and sanctuaries to raise awareness about the lifesaving work they do year-round to care for at-risk horses in their community who have often been abused or neglected. Horses have been central to the ASPCA’s work since its founding 150 years ago, when Henry Bergh stopped a cart driver from beating his horse, resulting in the first successful arrest for the mistreatment of a horse on April 26, 1866.

How did something as personal as medicine become so impersonal?

I first started practicing medicine in 1969 as a family practitioner. I became one of those rare people who by chance had a mentor who was the chief of pathology, urology and general surgery for most of his life at Bethesda Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota. Dr. Arthur Lundholm was at my side and taught me tirelessly in all of those specialties for five years. I guess you could call it the greatest multispecialty residency available. He also taught me how important it was to know your patient.


Who keeps their eyes on the bad guys?

A better title might be "Who keeps their peeps on the creeps?" When government leaders are corrupt or the equivalent of congenital liars, it's reassuring to know there is a courageous nonpartisan entity whose special mission is discovering what the scumbags are hiding. One of the most ethical, reliable sources of information providing a discovery process to penetrate the darkness of current government wrong doing, corruption, concealment and cover-ups is a dogged watchdog called Judicial Watch. It is a privately funded organization that labors incessantly on behalf of the American public, digging out government misconduct and corruption under the legal auspices of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and other means available.
