FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

April 7‐13 is National Public Health Week

“Public Health:  Start Here”

The Sarpy/Cass Department of Health & Wellness recognizes National Public Health

Week 2014 (April 7‐13) by promoting this year’s theme, “Public Health:  Start Here.” 

The focus is on raising awareness about the changing world of public health and

prevention in our lives. National Public Health Week is an important way to recognize

the contributions of public health and highlight issues that are important to improving

the public’s health. 

Each day this week, the Health Department will be highlighting different preparedness

and prevention activities and providing valuable resources and education on our

website at www.sarpycasshealthdepartment.org/publichealthweek.html and Facebook

page.

Public health is all around us.  It’s the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we

eat, and the places where we live, learn, work and play.  We need public health to

monitor diseases and implement prevention strategies; make sure new moms have the

resources and knowledge they need to have healthy babies; enforce food safety rules

and investigate food‐borne illness outbreaks; respond to and prepare communities for

natural disasters and emergencies; provide access to vaccines; and so much more. 

National Public Health Week is the perfect time to begin thinking about the critical role

that public health and prevention play in keeping our communities healthy.

The Sarpy/Cass Department of Health & Wellness serves the population of Sarpy and

Cass Counties.  The Health Department can be reached at 402‐339‐4334,

www.sarpycasshealthdepartment.org, or on Facebook.

Just a note from old Computer John of Louisville My guess is that if you own an "old" desktop type computer, you probably have an operating system called Windows XP that makes it run.
You may have heard, or seen something on the Internet about the Death of WINXP on 4/8/2014 - yet you are using that computer and it works just fine.

My recommendation is that you do nothing, and stop worrying about it. God knows you have lots of other things to worry about.

Here is Microsoft's (the creator of the software) statement on the Death of WINXP 4/8/2014
If you continue to use Windows XP after support ends, (04/08/2014) your computer will still work but it might become more vulnerable to security risks and viruses. Also, as more software and hardware manufacturers continue to optimize for more recent versions of Windows, you can expect to encounter greater numbers of apps and devices that do not work with Windows XP.
 
In fairness it is a 12 year old operating system (piece of software) and my guess is that it was expected to have a 10 year life, but the economy and other factors added 2 years to it's official life, and Microsoft deserves a chance to move on a sell you new stuff.
If you are concerned and want to get something new; you can upgrade Read Here buy the Windows 7 Operating System  http://goo.gl/Z80MsB for $100 or for $200 look for a new or "refurb" computer that is running Windows 7 (try www.Walmart.com search for Windows 7) or EBay) probably a better option but avoid Windows 8 for a variety of reasons .....but I stand by my recommendation to do nothing.
 
Ok, I changed my mind..do 3 things free:
1) on the bottom/left of you screen is the "Start" button
Click that, then Click Run... it will drop a little dialog box and type:  msconfig
Click OK, look for where it says Startup and Click that.
Then tell it to Disable All - Click Apply and then re-start your computer. That step eliminates all the nasty stuff that starts every time you start your computer "for your convenience" even though you never asked it to do that for you.
 
get some free malware protection. They support XP and plan to continue
3) Do a DEFRAG
Get a friend to teach you do a DEFRAG of you computer hard drive, or Type DEFRAG in your Start / Search for instructions. It is a very simple task - one that you should do from time to time.
Do the following 3 free tasks, and then relax and enjoy your "Old" computer running Windows XP for another 10 years!

On Sunday, April 13, at 3 PM, the Hastings Symphony will be performing a world premiere: the world's first concerto for nyckelharpa and orchestra.  The piece is composed by Dr. Christopher Stanichar, and will be performed by multi-instrumentalist, Deborah Greenblatt.  The piece is in three movements, each one reflecting a story by Hans Christian Anderson: "The Brave Tin Soldier", "The Ugly Duckling", and "The Emperor's New Clothes".

The nyckelharpa is the official fiddle of Sweden.  The instrument has 16 strings in all.  There are 3 melody strings, manipulated by keys, one droning string, and 12 strings that vibrate sympathetically.

For more information about the nyckelharpa, contact the American Nyckelharpa Association (www.nyckelhapra.org/).

What haunts owners of old homes?

Plattsmouth Conservancy to again offer free seminars on restoration of historic homes

They may not manifest right away and the problems that arise vary from hot water or HVAC

systems to siding, windows or a horde of issues that threaten all old home owners, leading

them to wonder, “What have I gotten myself into?”

 In Plattsmouth, 50 percent or more of the homes are at least 50 years old, prompting

Plattsmouth Conservancy to put together a series of seminars designed to help with the

choosing, restoring and maintaining an older home, whether the style is mid-century,

Craftsman, bungalow or Victorian.

There will be a series of 4 seminars. The dates are March 11, April 8, May 6 and June 10 at the

Conservancy office, located at 437-1 Main Street. The time is 6:30-8:30 PM. There will be a

drawing for a door prize at each seminar.

The first in the series will be an overview of things to look for and what to do about them. The

next three seminars will delve into specifics associated with the restoration and maintenance of

the older home. At the end of each presentation, there will be a question and answer period.

Mark your calendars and plan to attend.

Starting the week of March 31, if you plan to drive on Highway 75 between Union and Nebraska City, you will probably need to add at least a half hour to your trip.  

A six-mile stretch of highway south of the Union corner will be shut down until September while crews rebuild the road.   

 Either plan to detour west on Hwy 34 to Hwy 50, then south to Hwy 2, or go across the Plattsmouth toll bridge to I-29 and down the interstate.  

Plan accordingly, so you don't have to hurry!
 
BE SAFE AND THAT KEEPS OTHERS SAFE, TOO!
