Snakes, Spiders, Ticks and Poison Ivy

There are many dangers people can face during the summer months. Good knowledge and preparation can make all the difference between a safe or dangerous summer. 
There are three known venomous snakes found in Jefferson County, but all are very rare, such as Copperheads, the Western Massasauga Rattlesnake, and Timber Rattlesnake. 
Mike Fritz, a Zoologist, that is part of Wildlife Division at the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission stated, that the Wildlife Division has had reports of Timber Rattlesnakes being spotted in the Jefferson County area, but that they are very rare and keep to themselves.
There are also Copperheads and Massasauga Rattlesnakes found in Jefferson County and they are very rare as well, there are no Cottonmouths found in Nebraska. 
“The Water Snake is usually mistaken for being a Cottonmouth and is more aggressive, but non-venomous,” Fritz said.

Senior Center Offers More Than Just Lunch

Fairbury’s Senior Center is more than a lunch spot where senior citizens come for a hot meal. The center offers everything from tai chi on Monday mornings to pitch on Friday afternoons, and senior center manager Gail Ward said the budget at the center is so tight that much of what is done there is done with donations and volunteers. 
About 25 volunteers take turns delivering meals to seniors at home – about 40 people request the home meal delivery – and all of those volunteers donate their time, vehicles and fuel. There are “a few main volunteers” who deliver the two volunteer routes, Ward said. A third route is delivered by a paid employee.
Ward got her start at the senior center back when she was a stay-at-home mother who saw a church bulletin request for volunteers. Her children would sometimes accompany her on the meal deliveries; her grandchildren beg to help now, she said.
