West Nile positive mosquitoes collected in Webster County The South Heartland Dislrict Health Department (SHDHD) reported mos- quitoes collected in Webster County have tested positive for West Nile vi- rus. The mosquitoes were trapped by South Heartland staffon June 25. These are the first south central Nebraska mosquitoes to test positive for West Nile virus in 2013. They were col- lected from within the city limits in Red Cloud. Health director Michele Bever re- minds people that infected mosquitoes can pass the West Nile virus to humans and other animals including birds and horses. '`There have not yet been any laboratory-confirmed cases of West Nile infedtion reported in humans in NebraskSthis season. However, know- ing that we have positive mosquitoes here in our area is a reminder to take precautions that will reduce your chances of mosquito bites." SHDHD submits mosquitoes for testing from 10-12 sites in Adams and Webster Counties. "Mosquitoes be- come infected with West Nile virus by biting infected birds," said Bever. "In addition to monitoring West Nile virus in mosquitoes, the health department tracks the number of human cases con- firmed with West Nile infection and submits dead birds for testing." So far in 2013, no dead birds submitted from Adams, Clay, Nuckolls or Webster counties have tested positive for West Nile virus. Symptoms of West Nile Virus in- fection can range from mild to severe. While 80 percent of people who are infected with West Nile Virus don't show any symptoms at all, there is no way to know in advance whether you will develop mild symptoms or a more serious, life altering, or even fatal case of the illness. About 20 percent of people who become infected experience mild ill- ness with symptoms such as fever, headache, and rash. Approximately one in every 150 people infected with West Nile virus'will experience more serious symptoms such as high fever, neck stiffness, disorientation, muscle weakness, coma, numbness or paraly- sis. West Nile infection can be fatal. Previously, the highest number of human cases in the South Heartland District (Adams, Clay, Nuckolls, Webster counties) was in the 2003 season, when 179 laboratory-con- ., firmed cases of West Nile infection were reported. Desiree Rinne, health educator for South Heartland, reminds people to practice the "Four Ds" for protection against West Nile infection: • Dusk to dawn - stay inside when mosquitoes are most active. • Dress to protect- by wearing long sleeves and pants when mosquitoes are active. • DEET - Use an approved mos- quito-repellent, such as one containing DEET. • Drainstanding water around your property to discourage mosquitoes from breeding.

Doing for people what they can and ought to do for themselves is a danger- ous experiment. In the last analysis, the welfare of the workers depends up- on their own initiative. Whatever is done under the guise of philanthropy or social morality which in any way lessens initiative is the greatest crime that can be committed against the toil- ers. Let social busybodies and profes- sional "public morals experts" in their fads reflect upon the perils they rashly invite under this pretense of social welfare. Dorris Clark, secretary, and Elaine Madsen, treasurer, gave their reports. LaMira Mueller lead a devotion before the Mites of Mission offering.
