GOST B-I-N-G-O was a Success!

The proceeds of the bingo went to North Baltimore Cub Scout Pack #372 ….

Numbers being called! Chips flying everywhere!  Prizes and money awarded to the winners.  Bingo was brought back to Good Ole Summertime.

North Baltimore Gleaners Life Insurance Arbor #461 ran the Bingo along with donating prizes from local area businesses and Gleaner memorabilia.  The proceeds of the bingo went to North Baltimore Cub Scout Pack #372 who had parents and cubs on hand to help when needed.

Good Ole Summertime BINGO

We ended the bingo with the final game being a blackout or coverall for a 50 inch LED flat screen television.  The final game was fairly intense as we sold out of all 200 bingo cards.  Two people tied the final coverall game.  So one final game was played between the two individuals with Zoey Beaupry winning the playoff game and the 50 inch television.

Overall bringing back Bingo to GOST was a success.  We hope you will join us again next year at GOST for more Bingo, cards and chips.  We heard nothing but praise from all the participating players.  Thank you.

WEST NILE VIRUS CONFIRMED IN OHIO HORSES

Diseases spread by mosquitoes are preventable in horses with proper vaccination

Diseases spread by mosquitoes are preventable in horses with proper vaccination

(REYNOLDSBURG, OH) August 21, 2018– The Ohio Department of Agriculture recently confirmed the first positive cases of West Nile Virus (WNV) in Ohio horses for 2018. Two cases in Northeast Ohio have been confirmed and the animals had not been vaccinated. The spread of WNV in horses is preventable with proper vaccination and horse owners are urged to ensure their animal’s vaccine and boosters are up to date.

West Nile Virus is transmitted to horses via bites from infected mosquitoes. Clinical signs for WNV include flu-like symptoms, where the horse seems mildly anorexic and depressed. Changes in mentality, drowsiness, driving or pushing forward (often without control) and asymmetrical weakness may be observed. Mortality rate from WNV can be as high as 30-40 percent in horses. Infection with WNV does not always lead to signs of illness in people or animals. WNV is endemic in the United States and Ohio has reported positive cases in horses each of the last few years. There were 14 confirmed cases of WNV in Ohio in 2017.

“My message to horse owners is simple: vaccinate your animals and you can protect against West Nile Virus,” said State Veterinarian Dr. Tony Forshey. “Vaccines are a proven and effective prevention tool and I encourage all owners to talk to their veterinarian to learn how they can easily keep their animals healthy.”

In addition to vaccinations, horse owners should work to reduce the mosquito population and eliminate possible breeding areas. Recommendations include: removing stagnant water sources; keeping animals inside during the bugs’ feeding times, which are typically early in the morning and evening; and using mosquito repellents.

Sweet, Simple After-School Snacking

Smoothie bowls work well as a snack….

 

(Family Features) With school back in full swing, the days will be full, packed with classes, homework and after-school sports, music and other extracurricular activities. To make the most of all these endeavors, it’s important to eat well to sustain the critical energy and focus required throughout the day.

Smart fueling includes keeping nourishing snacks such as heart-healthy grapes on-hand – whether at home, in the car or coming off the field. Fresh California grapes – simple, convenient and nutritious – can make for a delicious snack on their own.

Available in three appealing colors – red, green and black – crisp, juicy grapes can add a tasty touch when hunger calls for an afternoon energy boost. Grapes also pair well with crackers, cheese and nuts for other snack combos.

Yet another way to enjoy fresh grapes is to blend them with other fruits and vegetables to create smoothie bowls, a nutritious option to help ensure that a variety of healthy ingredients are part of a balanced day.

Smoothie bowls work well as a snack or even a quick breakfast, and also provide a way for parents to introduce their kids to new, healthier bites.

This Grape Smoothie Bowl is fresh, flavorful and full of sweet grape taste for a quick fix that can leave bodies fueled and ready to take on the rest of the day.
