Possible N RA grant for range viewed by Byron Town Council BY BOB RODRIGUEZ A planned presenta- tion before the Byron Town Council meeting by a Na- tional Rifle Association rep- resentative misfired due to his being snowbound in Newcastle on Tuesday night, Jan. 14. However, Mayor Pam Hopkinson stated that a special meeting will be held to include an NRA program about helping the town es- tablish a shooting range. The date will be announced. Plans for the range are op- posed by some. Several citi- zens who came Tuesday left the council chamber when advised that the NRA talk was postponed. The possibility of gain- ing an NRA grant of ap- proximately $20,000 led to the council tacitly giving Hopkinson the OK to ex- pend $475 for Sherri Rag- ath, president of the By- ron Recreation Department Board of Directors, to reg- ister for the March 15-18 NRA Range Development & Operations Conference in New Orleans, La. She will pay for her airline tickets, accommodations and meals. Presentations on range de- velopment will be given by America's top experts, ac- cording to NRA's website, and conference material will be provided. The wide-ranging top- ics overall are aimed at en- suring that "the public has a safe and convenient place to shoot in order to exercise their Second Amendment rights," NRA said. The council is aware of a State of Wyoming grant, also for some $20,000, that might be obtained in con- nection with the proposed range. However, Councilor Sydney Hessenthaler noted that only one of the grants can be obtained per year. Fee free day at Bighorn Canyon NRA Monday Looking for something fun to do this than B.

Interviews next week for new ag educator BY KARLA POMEROY Interviews for a new University of Wyoming Co- operative Extrension Ser- vice ag educator for Big Horn County will be Jan. 23. County Extension Co- ordinator and 4-H Educa- tor Gretchen Gasvoda told the commissioners at the Jan. 7 meeting that UW is finishing the review process and determining how many candidates to interview. "We've had a good pool of candidates. There's some great candidates and our county should have a great ag educator in the next month or two," Gasvoda said. She said advertising will begin in April for the secretary position. The position is being advertised with the coun- ty having the contract changed to make the em- ployee a University of Wyo- ming CES employee rather than a county employee, al- though the county will help fund the position. In other Extension news, Gasvoda said she is already over budget with the purchase at the start of the fiscal year in July of a new copy machine that was not included in the budget. She said overtime during fair week has also made the budget about $8,000 to $10,000 over. Chairman Jerry Ewen asked them to watch the budget but noted the coun- ty could not leave the bud- get "in the red" at the end of the fiscal year.

It causes a mild to severe illness, depending on the individual.Though rare, it can cause death. Symptoms usually begin suddenly, progress rapidly, but the recovery period can last days to weeks. Flu symptoms consist of fever, although Richard Jay, MD not always, cough, sore throat, runny nose, congestion, muscle and body aches, headache, and/or fatigue. Some people, usually the very young or very old, may experience diarrhea and/or vomiting. Influenza complications range from mild to life threatening, such as pneumonia, bronchitis and ear infections. The young and elderly are at higher risk. Influenza can also make conditions worse for those with chronic illness. Those with COPD, or CHF, are at higher risk for pulmonary complications and death. Prevention is difficult due to the fact that individuals can spread the virus even before they are aware that they are infected. The universal precautions of good hand washing and covering your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough are paramount. Avoidance of crowds and people that are known to be ill is also advised unless one is willing to wear a mask and wash carefully. Of course everyone who does not have a contraindication to the immunizations should get a flu shot. Who Should get Vaccinated? The CDC says that while everyone should get a flu vaccine each flu season, it's especially important that the following groups get vaccinated either because they are at high risk of having seri- ous flu-related complications or because they live with or care for people at high risk for developing flu-related complications: 1. Pregnant women 2. Children younger than 5, but especially children younger than 2 years old 3. People 50 years of age and older 4. People of any age with certain chronic medical conditions 5. People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities 6. People who live with or care for those at high risk for complications from flu, including: 1. Health care workers 2. Household contacts of persons at high risk for complications from the flu 3. Household contacts and out of home caregivers of children less than 6 months of age (these children are too young to be vaccinated) Who Should Not get Vaccinated? The following people should not get a flu vaccine without first consulting a physician. People who have a severe allergy to chicken eggs. People who have had a severe reaction to an influenza vaccination. People who developed Guillain-Barr syndrome (GBS) within 6 weeks of getting an influenza vaccine. Children less than 6 months of age (influenza vaccine is not approved for this age group), and People who have a moderate-to-severe illness with a fever (they should wait until they recover to get vaccinated.) Possible Vaccine Side Effects The viruses in the flu shot are killed (inactivated), so you can- not get the flu from a flu shot. Some minor side effects that could occur are soreness, redness, or swelling where the shot was given, a low grade fever, or aches. If these problems occur, they begin soon after the shot and usually last only a day or two. Almost all people who receive an influenza vaccine have no serious problems from it. However, on rare occasions, flu vaccination can cause serious problems, such as severe allergic reactions. North Big Horn Hospital Clinic still has flu vaccine available for $20 and no appointment is needed for adults, NORTH BIG HORN HOSPITAL CLINIC 1115 Lane 12 Lovell, WY 82431 www.nbhh,com 548-5201
