(NYT44) SAUK CENTRE, Minn. -- Nov. 7, 2005 -- AMISH-POLIO-3 -- Dr. Susan Rutten, a physician from nearby Sauk Centre, Minn., who makes house calls in four Amish communities, gets an update on the day's schedule from her nurse, Monday, October 24, 2005 in Sauk Centre, Minn. Polio was pronounced dead in the Western Hemisphere years ago, after one of the most successful public health campaigns in history. But now it is stealing through the tiny Amish community of Long Prairie in central Minnesota, spreading from an 8-month-old girl to four children on two neighboring farms. So far, no one has been crippled by the disease; only 1 in 200 cases of polio results in paralysis. But worried public health officials say it may be only a matter of time.
