2 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, APRIL 6, 2012 AmeriC0rps h01d garden day The Lordsburg AmeriCorps Team spent a sunny afternoon during spring break working in their community garden, located at the Lordsburg Elks Lodge.

Many of the cases were in youn, g children. The Department also discourages families from buying small turtles (less than 4 inches) sold at flea markets and roadside stands because they are also known to carry. Salmonella that could infect people and their children. "While there are many good reasons to purchase baby Wash your hands thor- oughly with soap and water im- mediately after touching live baby poultry or anything in fine area where they live and roam. Use hand sanitizer if soap and water are not readily available. Adults should supervise hand washing for young chil- dren. Don't snuggle or kiss the birds, touch your mouth, or eat or drink around live baby poultry. Do not let live baby poultry inside the house or in areas where food or drink is pre- pared, served, or stored, such as kitchens, pantries, or outdoor pa- tios. DO not clean any equip- ment or materials associated with raising or caring for live poultry, such as cages or feed or water con- tainers, in the house. Do not let children younger than 5 touch chicks. ducklings, or other live poultry. Observe same precau- tions for small turtles. Visit your physician if you experience abdominal pain, fever and/or diarrhea. To learn more about Salmonella infection from live baby poultry, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website at: Features/SalmonellaB abyBirds/ N0thin' to do? What a c0p-0ut chicks, we are asking feed' stores around the state to strongly dis- courage people from buying baby chicks as pets, especially if they have young children." said Department of Health Cabinet Secretary, Dr. Catherine Torres. Many chicks and young birds carry Salmonella in their droppings, and it is difficult to know if animals are carrying Salmonella because they will not usually show signs of illness. Early symptoms of Salmonella in people include fever. diarrhea and abdominal pain. These symptoms develop within one to three days after exposure to baby chicks and their drop- pings. Other symptoms might be nausea, chills or headaches. "Children have become in- fected with Salmonella when parents keep the baby birds in- side the house and allow their small children to handle and snuggle with them," said Dr. Paul Ettestad, state public health veterinarian at the Department of Health. "In other cases, par- ents did not wash thgir hands properly after handlinthe birds and gave the infectioia to their children indirectly." The Department of Health also recommends the following preventive measures: Seni0r Citizens " ;enter LunCh ....

I am here to tell you- that excuse is a cop- O U t There are plenty of things to do with O U t drinking alcohol. Of course, sports is one thing and PAL has gone to great lengths to offer sports throughout the year for our younger children. What if your teen is not in to sports? There are still a multitude of activities to do. How about a party without alcohol? There are many games and activities young people can do without drinking. For in- stance, play Volleyball out in the yard, play a card game, the WIL pop popcorn and watch a movie. go bowling, have a street party (just make sure it is ok with local enforcement), go on a scavenger hunt .... The ideas are endless It just takes a little bit of imagina- tion and planning , It is time for us to change our thinking and stop accepting the fallacy that teens drink because there is nothing else to do. As soon as we adults stop giving teens that excuse and start get- ting serious about changing the status quo, the sooner our chil- dren will be held accountable for their actions by all of us. Parents. be prepared to host healthy par- ties. Get together and plan a party and offer healthy appetizers and non-alcoholic beverages. Or how about getting together to do a "Random Act of Kind- ness"? Contrary to popular be- lief, the natural endorphins that are pro- duced in the body when we are hav- ing a good time feel much better than when we drink al- cohol. which is a depressant. Our bodies a r e equipped with this Natural High mecha- nism that is actually suppressed by alcohol or other drugs.

NOTICE The City of Lordsburg is committed to providing or citizens With safe drinking water. We make every eff6rt to ensure this practice.

We did, however, submit a sample on Feb. 14, at a personal residence at their request. The sample results were negative for the presence of total coliform. On Feb. 15, w'e resumed daily monitoring for the presence Of Chlorine in the drinking water. As always, our water analysis results are open, to the public by request at any time.
