Knowing whom you want to make decisions for you and providing instructions to your decision-makers helps reduce future questions and conflicts. When naming a health care agent, select someone who is at least 18 years of age and, when possible, someone who you trust, who has sim- ilar beliefs and values about medical care and death or dying OR is willing to carry out your wishes even if they are different from his or her own. This person should not be easily intimidat- ed by family members, friends, or health care providers, should be an advocate for your interests, can cope with making difficult life and death decisions including making decisions which would allow you to die and can make decisions under stress. Always remember to talk with your health care agent before naming him/her. Talk with each person to be sure that he or she is willing to: serve as your health care agent; take time to understand and talk about your wish- es, and follow your instructions or act in your best interest. There are several other key points to remember with a health care direc- tive. Once a health care directive is written, it can be changed or revoked as long as you have capacity. It is just as important for an individual who wants to initiate or continue medical treatment to leave written instructions as it is for individuals who have other preferences. A health care directive does not require an attorney to com- plete. A suggested form and sugges- tions for completing are available to help you put your wishes in writing. It is illegal for a health care provider to require you to complete an advance directive. Health care providers are required to tell you about advance directive laws in Minnesota and note whether or not you have an advance directive in your medical file. Laws regarding advance directives are not the same in all fifty U.S. states. If you spend time in another state, or move to another state, be sure you under- stand the laws. For a free health care directive information packet, contact the University of Minnesota Extension Service - Big Stone County at 320/839-2518 or 1-800-279-2518. If you have questions regarding the new Minnesota Health Care Directive, contact Sara Croymans at the Chippewa County Extension Office at 1-800-247-0412. Asian beetle found in trees .......... -- Inspectors from Minnesota's Department of Agriculture have dis- covered a species of Asian wood-bor- "ing beetle not previously found in the United States. The insects apparently entered the country hidden inside artificial Christmas trees constructed with real tree trunks, shipped from China and distributed to stores and gift shops across the state. Although MDA quickly banned further sales of the trees, some had already been sold. The beetles, identified as Callidiellum villosulum are small (about 3/4% red- dish-brown beetles with long anten- nae. They live inside the tree trunk as larvae and emerge when mature. They were discovered by the MDA thanks to a tip from federal officials. The MDA is responsible for protect- ing the state of Minnesota from exot- ic terrestrial pests like these beetles. The beetles are a potential threat to Minnesota trees because similar species attack conifers such as pines, junipers, arborvitae and cedars. Like other harmful exotics such as the Gypsy moth and the Japanese beetle, these insects arrived without natural predators. With no controls in the new ecosystem, the beetles' numbers can swell quickly. According to MDA Commissioner Gene Hugoson, the beetles are a sobering reminder of the escalating threat posed to local ecosystems by exotic pests. "Increased global trade is bringing harmful exotic pests to our environ- ment in increasing numbers, despite fumigation and inspections in the countries of origin," Commissioner Hugoson said. "The trees had the required paperwork, but somehow the beetles survived. "The MDA is working closely with USDA to determine the best way to contain and eliminate this pest," Commissioner Hugoson said. "The distributor of the trees and the shop owners who received them have been very cooperative. The government agencies and private parties involved are working together to stop this bee- tle from getting loose into our homes, tree nurseries and landscapes." Anyone who may have purchased artificial Christmas trees with real tree trunks is asked to contact MDA at 651-296-3343 or USDA at 612-334- 4194 for more information.
