Residents in this area are advised to stay indoors, keep pets inside, and cover fish ponds during those times. Spraying will be rescheduled if wind speeds are above 10 mph or in the event of rain.

“We want our residents to know the mosquitoes that carry West Nile virus are here and they’re active,” said Zachary Thompson, DCHHS director. “Our mosquito surveillance program and the county and municipal abatement teams are taking appropriate actions to ensure the safety of our residents. However, it is important for residents to take the necessary precautions.”

Residents are asked to help eliminate the areas that mosquitoes need to breed by emptying, removing or covering any receptacle that can hold water. To prevent mosquito bites, residents are advised to use an insect repellent containing at least 30 percent DEET (lower concentration for children) and stay indoors at dawn and dusk.

Dallas County conducts regular tests on mosquito samples throughout the city as part of its West Nile Virus surveillance program.The pesticide used by Dallas County is applied at extremely low dosages designed only to affect mosquitoes and other pests their size.

Dallas County Mosquito Season Runs From May-October

West Nile Virus (WNV) is a preventable condition. Humans commonly get West Nile Virus by being bitten by infected mosquitoes. Mosquito season in Dallas County typically runs from May to October with peak activity in August. Residents should be on heightened alert during these months of the dangers of West Nile Virus.

WNV is one of a group of viruses spread by mosquito bites. The most severe type of West Nile Virus is sometimes called “neuroinvasive disease” because it affects a person’s nervous system. Specific types of neuroinvasive disease include: West Nile Encephalitis, West Nile Meningitis or West Nile Meningoencephalitis.

West Nile Fever is another type of illness that can occur in people who become infected with the virus. Symptoms of West Nile virus in humans may include fever, headache, tiredness, muscle aches, confusion, stiff neck, nausea, and sometimes a rash.

Although the illness commonly has affected older individuals, even healthy younger people have been sick with West Nile Disease this year. The incubation period for WNV (the period between being bitten by an infected mosquito and showing the first symptoms) varies from 3-15 days.

Anyone who experiences symptoms consistent with WNV should see a physician as soon as possible. Health officials are still urging the public to take protective measures in preventing the illness. In Dallas County West Nile infections reached epidemic levels.

Because of this, residents are urged to take precautions even in areas where the virus has yet to be detected. County health officials warn the threat of the virus exists in North Texas.

D-fend Against West Nile Virus:

Drain, Dress & wear DEET. DCHHS urges the public to defend yourself against West Nile virus:

Drain: Get rid of ALL standing water. Empty, remove, cover or turn upside down any containers that will hold standing water (bottles, cans, tires, buckets, flower pots, etc.) Change water in pet dishes, wading pools and birdbaths several times a week. Cover trash containers so they will not collect water.

Dress: Wear long, loose and light-colored clothing to avoid mosquito bites when outside.

Deet: Use insect repellent products with “DEET” or other FDA approved repellents and follow product instructions.

“While all ‘4Ds’ are important, stopping mosquitoes where they breed is especially crucial,” said Dr. Christopher Perkins, DCHHS medical director/health authority.

Grand Prairie Summer Reading Program

By Elisabeth McMahon

The Grand Prairie Libraries end their Summer Reading Club with a Full Steam Ahead Closing Ceremony for kids on Saturday, August 13 from 10 am to noon at the Main Library. Our end of summer celebration explores the wide world of science in a STEAM extravaganza. Kids will enjoy hands-on activities with our special guests, the Perot Museum of Nature & Science Tech Truck, and the wacky docs of Mad Science. Summer Reading

The TECH Truck is a mobile extension of the Perot Museum that travels throughout North and Central Texas. T.E.C.H. stands for Tinker – Engineer – Create – Hack. The TECH Truck engages kids in hands-on, maker-based, science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) experiences that foster creativity and confidence. Kids share the thrill of discovery that’s so essential to fostering confidence and creativity in STEAM subjects.

Mad Science has thrilled kids with exciting, learning-based presentations in Grand Prairie and around the metroplex. Kids will take turns exploring five different scientific concepts:
• Dry Ice: Learn about states of matter and physical reactions through bubbling potions, dry ice in a glove, spooky effects and best of all – a Dry Ice Bubble Shower!
• Fun-damental Forces: Find out just how much fun physics can be with some of our favorite forces. Try our gyroscope bike wheel, coin vortex, tornado tubes, and more!
• Marvelous Magnets: See an electromagnetic catapult, magnets in motion and a “magna” doodle.
• Optical Illusions: Experience a variety of cool optical illusions, a camera obscura, and periscopes.
• Watts Up: Discover how and why static electricity is such a shock! We’ll demonstrate with Plasma Balls, Static Tubes, Circuit Boards and our VanDeGraff Generator.

Kids will get a take-home craft, and can capture the moment in the library photobooth. Remember to bring in those Summer Reading Club logs! Libraries will accept logs through the end of August.

The Grand Prairie Main Library is located at 901 Conover Dr. Information on the library is available at gptx.org/library.

Texas Prepaid Tuition Program Enrollment Deadline Approaches

Texas Prepaid Tuition

Texas Prepaid Tuition Program

Texas Prepaid Tuition Program Deadline Is July 31st

Texas Tuition Promise Fund is a prepaid tuition plan that opened September 2008. It allows individuals to lock in the cost of undergraduate resident college tuition and required fees at today’s college prices. With the Texas Tuition Promise Fund, an individual buys tuition units that represent a fixed portion of resident undergraduate tuition and required fees (1 unit = 1 percent of a 30 semester-hour academic year). Participants must purchase a minimum of one unit to establish an account. Thereafter, contributions can be as little as $15 per payment.

The Board invests payments received from plan participants and uses the investment earnings and purchaser payments to pay college tuition and required fees for plan beneficiaries in accordance with their plan benefits.

The deadline is July 31 for Texas families to enroll their newborns in the Texas Tuition Promise Fund® and prepay for all or some future tuition and school-wide required fees at Texas public colleges and universities. Newborns are children younger than one year at the time of enrollment.

Under the Texas Tuition Promise Fund, the state’s prepaid college tuition program, participants can purchase tuition units and lock in costs based on today’s prices.

“For Texas families concerned about rising tuition costs, now is a good time to start planning early and consider enrolling your newborn in this program,” Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar said.

Enrollment at 2015-16 prices closed Feb. 29 for children older than one. The next annual enrollment period begins on Sept. 1 and is based on Texas public college and university tuition and school-wide required fees for the 2016-17 school year.

Complete plan information, including plan description and agreement, current prices, enrollment forms and more is available online at Tuition Promise , or by calling 1-800-445-GRAD (4723), Option 5.

Purchasers should carefully consider the risks, administrative fees, service and other charges and expenses associated with the contracts, including plan termination and decreased transfer or refund value. Purchasers should read these documents carefully before purchasing a contract. Participation in the plan does not guarantee admission to any college or university.
