It was announced on the local news that the CDC is putting out mosquito traps and researching/investigating the encephalitis scare here as more cases of the deadly disease continue to mount! So far, nearly 50 cases have been reported in Northern Louisiana and the CDC has issued advisories for folks to stay indoors this Labor Day weekend if possible or at least wear long sleeved clothing, cover up well, and spray with bug/mosquito repellent! Been getting an unusual amount of rain and much cooler tempertatures for here, to add to the dillema! Will keep ya'll posted...more news at 11. Blessings all, Joanne ^j^ P.S. Funny, how all of a sudden, all this West-Nile" business and such going on and we are being told to spray ourselves even more...feel like a "bug" already from the chem junk! J.
