The concert will start at 7 p.m. and will feature Wylie and the Wild West and special guest, cowboy poet and hu- morist Andy Nelson. Wylie is the well-known voice behind the Yahoo yodeler. He has appeared on the Grand Ole Opry more than 50 times and was featured on Late Night with Conan O'Brian. In 2006, Nelson was named the West- ern Music Association's "Male Poet of the Year" and in 2009 was awarded the "Skinny Roland Humor Award" from the Academy of Western Artists. He performs frequently throughout the U.S. This is the second event supported by the Parents of the Blue Jackets, a new parent support group coordinating events and fundraisers to support the program. Maryann Bischoff, the group's president, said the group will also be coordinating the sale of Christmas trees in the com- ing months to raise additional funds for the chapter. The parent group will hold its next meeting on, Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 7:30 p.m., at the Bischoff Residence. Bischoff said the group will have the second read- ing on a set of by-laws, and will be work- ing on their mission statement. "Our group will also be talking about what items to add to the by-laws such as re-elections, what a quorum will con- sist of, exactly what our duties will look like in the future, to name a few," said Bischoff. For more information about the par- ent group or directions to the meeting call Bischoff at 272-0976. Town council approves liquor licenses, talks pool fees BY DAVID PECK It was the briefest of public hearings Monday night when the Town of Lovell held its annual hearing on community liquor licenses. Except for an employee of the Maverik store in Lovell, there were no members of the public present, Lovell Clerk/Treasur- er Valerie Beal said, and the hearing took about one minute after no comments were made. Opening a special meeting, the council voted 3-0 to approve the liquor license re- newals with Brian Dickson, Bruce Wolsey and Mayor Bruce Morrison voting in favor and Kevin Jones and Scott Allred absent. The council discussed possible changes to pricing at the Lovell swimming pool af- ter a request from the Lovell Recreation Dis- trict. Ideas discussed including increasing the single session fee from $1 to $2, selling a 25-visit punch card for $40 and allowing en- titles to reserve the pool for $25 per hour for one to 25 people, then $10 for each addition- al hour, adding the cost of an additional life- guard for groups of more than 25 people. Ultimately, the council voted to table the agenda item. "We're talking about it, discussing ideas," Beal said. "We'll bring it to the agen- da on October 8." In other action Monday, the council ap- proved a waiver of conflict of interest in re- gard to future pool negotiations since attor- ney Sandra Kitchen represents the town and her law partner Tracy Copenhaver rep- resents School District No. 2. The council also approved a payment to Harddrive Construction for the recent chip and crack seal project for $285,059.89. Beal said the funding for the project had come through from the State Loan and Invest- ment Board. There will be one more pay- ment for retainage,Bealsaid..: - Wednesday, Oct. 2 from 9am-6pm Thursday, Oct. 3 from lOam-4pm Also available: ,An Coats Gloves  Mittens, Scarves, Caps, Boots, Just Tees and Halloween Itemsl In the basement of ...

Well, it's that time of year again. Flu time. If you've ever had the flu you know how miserable it can be. One minute you feel okay and the next you have a high fever, runny nose, headache, sore throat and you feel like you've been run over by a truck. Each year the flu makes millions of Americans ill and causes the death of 5,000- I0,000 people. The best thing to do about the flu is to never get it in the first place. Flu is spread best by aerosol droplets in our breath, that Brendan Fitzsimmons means by breathing, coughing and sneez- MD ing on each other, so it's important not to sneeze or cough (as well as bad manners) on each other and if someone knows they have the flu they should stay home and not share the same airspace with other people until they're well. It's also spread by contact, so it's very important to wash your hands often and not share things like tableware or eat or drink from the same plate or cup. But the best way to avoid getting the flu is to get a flu shot. Each year a vaccination is produced that targets the three or four most likely strains of flu expected that year.This is made available towards the end of September in the hopes of maxi- mizing it's effectiveness during flu season. There are some people who shouldn't get the flu shot, such as children less than 6 months old, people who have had a se- vere allergic reaction to a previous flu shot or a severe allergy to eggs, or a history of having developed Guillian-Barre Syndrome within 6 weeks of getting an flu shot, or are immunosuppressed either by disease (such as AIDS) or immunosuppressive drugs. We also don't want to give you the flu shot if you're sick at the time with a high fever, but after you're recovered, then you should come in for your shot. But for the rest of us getting the flu shot is highly recom- mended and is far and away the best way to avoid getting the flu. It's especially important for pregnant women, people in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, people over 50 years of age, and people with chronic illness (especially COPD/ Asthma and Diabetes). Although we don't want to vaccinate children less than 6 months old, we do especially and strongly recommend that children from that age up to 5 years old receive the vaccination. For those who can't receive the flu shot, the best way to protect them is to have those around them get the flu shot. So if you have some little babies or are taking care of some very sick people who are immunosuppressed, the best thing you can do for them is to get your flu shot.
