Rabies vaccina- "on reminder for , Ainnesota residents The Minnesota Board of Animal Health reminds pet owners to vaccinate their ani- mals against rabies, and to make sure to keep the vac- cinations up-to-date as warm weather sets in. Typically, summer and early fall are peak times of the year for human and pet interactions with wildlife, as wildlife movement increases and people and their pets enjoy more time outdoors. This increases the likeli- hood of interactions with wildlife reservoirs for rabies, such as skunks and bats. In 2009, nearly 50 percent of skunks tested in Minnesota were positive for the rabies virus. Rabies vaccination is an easy and inexpensive way to protect both animals and the people who have contact with them. Dogs, cats, and ferrets over the age of 12 weeks should be vaccinated for rabies. Frequent reports of bats within homes should remind owners to vaccinate indoor cats also. Contact your veterinarian to make sure that your animal has been vaccinated and that the vaccination is current. "The rabies vaccination for pets is extremely effec- tive," said Dr. Bill Hartmann, Minnesota Board of Animal Health Executive Director and State Veterinarian. "In order to prevent humans from being exposed to rabies we must make sure that our pets are protected." Rabies exposure occurs most commonly through a bite of an infected animal If you think you or your pet may have been exposed to rabies by a wild animal, contact your veterinarian, to have the animal tested. Follow the recommenda- tions below to reduce the chance of you or your animal being exposed to rabies: Dogs, cats, and ferrets over the age of 12 weeks should be vaccinated for rabies and kept current on the vaccine as recommended by your veterinarian. Animals too young to be vaccinated (less than 12 weeks old) should be kept inside, or away from stray or wild animals. Do not approach or feed wild or stray animals, Wild animals showing abnormal behaviors such as aggression or fearlessness should be reported to local animal control officers. If your pet has contact with a wild animal, espe- cially a skunk or a bat, report it to the Minnesota Board of Animal Health at 651-201- 6808 or to your veterinarian. The Board of Animal Health investigates rabies cases and recommends vaccinations and quarantines as necessary. If you are bitten by an animal, contact your phy- sician and the Minnesota Department of Health at 651- 201-5414. For more information on rabies, visit the Board's web- site at www. bah. us.

Cooking safely for a crowa Deb Botzek-Linn U of MN Ext. If you are hosting or help- ing with a large food event this summer such as a gradu- ation party, family reunion or community event, be sure to keep food safety in mind. The combination of larger quantities of food, sum- mer temperatures, and per- haps outdoor serving could result in unwanted food- borne illness for your guests. Foodborne illness, such as norovirus, with symptoms of nausea, vomiting, and diar- rhea, is of special concern for infants, young children, preg- nant women, older adults and those with weakened immune systems attending your gath- ering. Food safety for a large event begins when plan- ning the menu. Do you have enough refrigerator space for all the salads? How will you keep the deli trays cold when transporting? How will you heat the pulled pork and keep it hot? Plan ahead to ensure that you have suf- ficient refrigeration space, coolers and ice, and hot hold- ing equipment for the types and quantity of food you are serving. Are you serving buffet style? Whether indoors or outdoors hot foods on a buf- fet need to be held above 140oF and cold foods below 41oF. A food. thermometer is needed to check food tem- peratures Ice, plenty of clean ice, is needed to keep salads, fresh fruit and vegetables, and meat and cheese trays cold. One tip is to fill a large clean shallow plastic contain- er with ice and set the serving bowls of cold food on the ice. Serve in smaller bowls and replace when empty. Do not add fresh food to a dish that has been sitting out. Have a serving uten- sil - spoon, fork, spatula or tong for every food item to avoid bare hand contact. Plan to replace them peri- odically as many hands (some unwashed!) have touched them. Wash your hands, wash your hands often with soap and warm water for 20 sec- onds and be sure your helpers do the same! Plan for the leftovers - Have containers (and space) ready to refrigerate or freeze food that has maintained proper temperature. When in doubt - throw out! Be cau- tious on sending food home with guests, especially the elderly, unless you have a cold method of transporting on a warm summer day.

Seriously Heightened Seat Belt Enforcement began May 24; Officers Can Stop Motorists Solely for Belt Violations Drivers, passengers and kids better be buckled up or in the correct child restraint as The Redwood Falls Sheriff's Dept and the Redwood Falls Police Dept, officer and deputies will be ramping up enhanced Click It or Ticket seat belt patrols May 24-June 6. The campaign marks one year since the state's primary seat belt law became effec- tive June 9, 2009, allowing law enforcement to stop and ticket motorists solely for belt violations. The primary law requires passengers in all seating positions, including the back seat, to be buckled up or seated in the correct child restraint. A seat belt fine is $25 but can cost more than $100 with court and admin- istrative fees. The campaign will also include enforcement of Minnesota's strengthened child passenger safety law that requires children to be in the correct restraint until they are age 8 and 4 feet 9 inches tall. This law requires booster seats for kids usually starting at age 4 to ensure adult seat belts fit them cor- rectly. "Our wish is to not have to write any seat belt tickets, but that's not reality," says Deputy Siefkes "Despite progress in increasing belt use it's clear far too many motorists continue to not buckle up and as a result put themselves and others in the vehicle at risk in case of crash." Deputy Siefkes notes that in rollover crashes, unbelted motorists are usually ejected from the vehicle. In most cases, the vehicle will roll- over them. In less severe crashes, unbelted motorists will crack teeth out on steer- ing wheels or break their nose, and even slam into and injure others in the vehicle. "Enforcement of this law starts with you. Insist your passengers are buckled up," says Deputy Sietkes. Each year, unbelted motorists account for more than one-half of all vehicle occupants killed. Belt use is especially an issue in Greater Minnesota communities. Annually, nearly 80 percent of unbelted traffic deaths occur on Greater Minnesota roads. Belt use is especially poor among teens and young adults. Statewide each year, motorists age 15-29 account for 45 percent of all unbelted deaths, yet this group rep- resents only 25 percent of licensed drivers. This same age group accounts for 55 percent of all unbelted seri- ous injuries -- 70 percent occur in Greater Minnesota. Between 2006 and 2008 there were 2 unbelted teen deaths and 1 unbelted teen serious injury. During 2006-2008 in Redwood County, 8 motor- ists were killed in traf- fic crashes and 7 were not belted. Another 7 unbelted motorists were seriously injured. The enforcement effort will also include a nighttime seat belt enforce- ment focus- The Minnesota Department of Public Safety (DPS) reports during 2006- 2008, 277 motorists were killed during nighttime hours (9 p.m. - 3 a.m.) and of those killed, 178 (64 percent) were not belted. In Minnesota during 2006-2008,1,097 motorists were killed in crashes and 539 were unbelted; 1,152 unbelted motorists were seri- ously injured. According to DPS, preliminary 2009 num- bers indicate unbelted deaths accounted for at least 140 deaths, more than one-half of motorists killed. Around 400 law enforce- ment agencies statewide will participate in the effort coor- dinated by DPS as a compo- nent of the state's Toward Zero Death (TZD) initia- tive. TZD is a multi-agency approach to address traffic issues regionally through enforcement, education, engineering and emergency trauma response. minnesota Classified flduerUsing fletworh 1: I :l I'.IW:I [II I :l I1 q :| i'I :l :l,ll DRIVERS NEEDED: Earn up to $45,000 per year +benefits.
