West Nile virus poses special September threat

West Nile virus poses special September threat


SACRAMENTO - The West Nile virus continues to be a problem throughout California with more than twice the number of human cases compared to same time last year.

All month, public health officials have focused on preventive spraying across the region to combat the West Nile virus. One recent target was Oki Park, near Rosemont. That was good news for those gathered at the park Saturday afternoon, especially for Lyn Piegaro who was diagnosed with West Nile virus several years ago.

"It's debilitating. It's very hard, and I'm guessing for the kids and older people it's even worse, which is why I'm very happy that they spray," Piegaro said.

The website FIGHTtheBITE.net shows recently sprayed areas like the section of the American River just north of Oki Park.

Local Assyrian-Americans encouraged by Obama's plan against ISIS


The Assyrian-American community in Turlock has been outspoken about the need to help those terrorized by Islamic State militants.

In the conference room of the Assyrian-American Civic Club of Turlock, members watched closely as Pres. Obama outlined his four-point plan Wednesday evening to degrade and destroy the terrorist group ISIS.

"It has been frustrating as an Assyrian-American to see the lack of action up until this point," club member Matthew Jacob said.

In addition to Sunni and Shia Muslims, Assyrian Christians are among the tens of thousands of religious minorities Obama said were at grave risk from ISIS.

"He mentioned the Christian minorities that are being displaced right now and the humanitarian aid that needs to be sent to them. That's very comforting for me to hear," Jacob said.

Club member Bella Daniel welcomed the focus on local Iraqi security forces.

“My brother took over dad’s dairy operation and because I didn’t want to see the beef cows go, I got a loan – which wasn’t easy – and bought them,” Henriquez remembered. “I’ve been running cattle since 1987: Holstein steers, cows, calves, stockers and Holstein feeders.”
