Health briefs: Take precautions with West Nile virus 11.8.2014 Steamboat Pilot
Precautions to take against West Nile virus include the “Four D’s”: • Drain standing water around the house weekly since that’s where mosquitoes lay eggs. Be sure to empty old tires, cans, flowerpots, clogged rain gutters, rain barrels and toys where puddles can occur. • Dusk and dawn are when mosquitoes that carry the virus are most active, so limit outdoor activities or take precautions to prevent mosquito bites. • DEET is an effective ingredient to look for in insect repellents. Always follow label instructions carefully. • Dress in long sleeves and pants during dawn and dusk or in areas where mosquitoes are active. West Nile virus disease is rare, but if you have symptoms including high fever, severe headache and stiff neck, contact your health care provider immediately.

Libby Foster: Community effort 11.7.2014 Steamboat Pilot
The Routt County Bridges Initiative, a collaborative effort between the Routt County Department of Human Services, Routt County United Way and LIFT-UP of Routt County, recently crafted a vision statement for our local Bridges Out of Poverty Initiative. After quite a bit of contemplation and wordsmithing, the executive committee members and I agreed that: “We envision a vibrant community united to improve the lives of people living in poverty.” While we were sharpening our vision, we also were celebrating the graduation of 17 Getting Ahead “investigators.” These investigators are Routt County residents who are motivated to break the cycle of poverty in their lives.
