HELP TAKE A BITE OUT OF LYME

Pennsylvania has led the nation in confirmed cases of Lyme disease for three straight years, and for the first time, deer ticks have been found in all of its 67 counties, the state Department of Health reports.

Lyme disease is called the "THE GREAT IMITATOR" because its symptoms mimic many other diseases.  For instance, patients with Lyme disease are frequently misdiagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis and various psychiatric illnesses, including depression. 

The best defense again tick borne illness is to avoid contact with ticks in the first place, but when that's not possible, take the following steps - know where ticks live (near the ground, in leaf litter, grasses, bushes and fallen logs) and dress defensively - wear shoes, sock, long pants and long sleeves and tie back long hair and wear a hat.  Light colored clothing can help you spot ticks!  Use repellent on exposed skin and periodically inspect your clothing and skin for ticks!

Spring Township Encourages Pennsylvania Residents to Dial 8-1-1 Before Digging
April Marks the Ninth Annual National Safe Digging Month

With homeowners and businesses tackling spring and summer projects, Spring Township reminds its Pennsylvania utility customers to always dial 8-1-1 before digging to avoid hitting underground electrical cables and other utility installations.

Homeowners and contractors should contact 8-1-1 three days before beginning a job to be connected to the Pennsylvania One Call Center, which then will notify the appropriate utility companies about the work being planned. Professional locators are then sent to the requested digging site to mark the approximate locations of underground lines with flags, paint or both. Every digging project even something as simple as installing a mailbox, building a deck or planting a tree warrants a call to Pennsylvania 8-1-1 before the first shovelful of dirt is turned. Waiting to start a project until lines are located and marked makes good sense, because striking a single line can lead to injury, cause outages, and result in costly repairs or fines.

The depth of utility lines can vary for many reasons, such as erosion, previous digging projects and uneven surfaces. Utility lines need to be properly marked because even when digging only a few inches, the risk of striking an underground utility line still exists. Pennsylvania 8-1-1 encourages area residents to visit www.pa811.org or www.pa1call.org for more information about digging safely.
