Infant Immunization Week

Vaccines are among the most successful and cost-effective public health tools for preventing disease and death…

Wood County Health Department encouraging vaccines during National Infant Immunization Week

Appointments available for children whose doctors don’t offer immunizations

BOWLING GREEN — Parents should begin making plans now for vaccines that their children will need when they return to school in the fall.

Physician offices often become busy with immunization appointments, so Wood County Health Department is encouraging parents during National Infant Immunization Week (April 23-29) to begin making their vaccine plans now.

Vaccines are among the most successful and cost-effective public health tools for preventing disease and death. They help protect vaccinated individuals as well as entire communities by preventing and reducing the spread of infectious diseases.

Giving babies their recommended immunizations by age 2 and throughout childhood is the best way to protect them from many serious diseases, such as whooping cough and measles. Parents should ask their child’s doctor about what vaccines are recommended for their age.

Wood County Health Department provides immunizations to children ages 0 through 18 whose doctors do not offer them. Appointments are available from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on May 8 and June 4, and from 1-3:30 p.m. on May 23 and June 20.

For more information or to make an appointment, call 419-352-8402. Most insurance and Medicaid is accepted, and the cost without insurance is $20 per vaccine. If you or your child does not have a medical provider, Wood County Community Health Center is accepting new patients. Call 419-354-9049 to schedule an appointment.

The mission of Wood County Health Department is to prevent disease, promote healthy lifestyles and protect the health of everyone in Wood County. Our Community Health Center provides comprehensive medical services for men, women and children. We welcome all patients, including uninsured or underinsured clients, regardless of their ability to pay, and we accept most third-party insurance. For more information, visit


An Easter devotion by Pastor Ralph J. Mineo

An Easter devotion by Pastor Ralph J. Mineo

I get surprised all the time, especially by God. It’s not unusual for me use an expression like this when God surprises me: “The Holy Spirit slapped me up side of the head to get my attention.” This happens most often when I make a firm decision, but God has something else in mind.

Such divine nudges don’t really hurt, but they ARE surprising. Truth be told, this happens all the time. Sometimes, part of the surprise is realizing I’ve relied too much on myself. Trusting God, relying on God, is basic to the call of being a follower of Jesus.

So, God shows up and surprises! There’s nothing more beautiful in this life when God shows up!

In a few days, no one will be surprised it’s Easter Sunday. Not really. But the first Easter was a HUGE surprise! The first disciples weren’t expecting the resurrection. Jesus died on the day we call “Good Friday.” He really, truly, actually died. As an ancient Christian hymn (quoted by Paul in Philippians chapter 2) says, “he was obedient to death.” Jesus died.

The first disciples weren’t waiting around to see it happen! They certainly wouldn’t bring embalming spices for a dead body if they were expecting a resurrection. No, death happened. When they arrived at the tomb, they were surprised by LIFE! They were REALLY surprised!

We have many images of resurrection, eternal life, heaven: pearly gates (some envision St. Peter there to greet them), clouds and angels, golden streets (as in the Book of Revelation), a huge mansion with many rooms (as described by Jesus), and so on. It’s very helpful for our human minds to have practical images of heaven. That’s why they’re in the Bible for us. They help our finite minds focus on the infinite gift. But we should never forget that every human image falls short of what the reality will be. We can’t fathom eternity!

There’s a popular contemporary song by Lutheran composer, John Ylvisaker, titled “Borning Cry.” God is the speaker, promising to be with us at every moment of life’s journey. When the song talks about the moment of death, we hear God say, “I’ll be there with just one more surprise.” I LOVE that phrase! It’s my favorite phrase to use about eternity, “just one more surprise.”

Just as the resurrection of Jesus was a surprise to the first disciples, our entrance into eternal life will be nothing less than a huge, glorious, divine God-surprise! No matter how much we think we have it figured out now, it will be a divine surprise.

In the meantime, as we journey through our lives, God gives us glimpses of the eternal surprise. God gives us holy moments and experiences. God is all about surprising us!

I close with a blessing: May God’s Holy Spirit slap you up the side of the head this Easter, and SURPRISE you with amazing grace, love, forgiveness, healing, peace, joy, and all that you need to appreciate God’s gift of eternal life.

Simple Holiday Hams

Ideas for an easy Easter menu

(Family Features) Whether you’re new to hosting or simply looking for ideas to make Easter entertaining easier than ever, there are plenty of ways to save time and stress in the kitchen.

Go with what you know. Trying out new recipes is fun, but it can also add stress when they don’t turn out like you expected. Stick to tried and true dishes you can prepare and serve with confidence and save the experimenting for another time.

Take shortcuts. At the center of many Easter feasts is a ham that has been expertly cured and cooked to perfection. Even so, starting with a full-cooked ham is a shortcut that no one is likely to notice, especially if you heat it properly. For exceptional quality and a variety of flavor profile options to choose from, turn to America’s Original Butcher, Omaha Steaks. The meats are fully cooked then frozen before being delivered to your door for maximum convenience.

Work ahead. Plan your menu to incorporate items you can make ahead of time so you’re under less pressure the day of your dinner. Even handling the prep work like slicing veggies the night before can buy back precious minutes, that way when guests begin arriving, you can step out of the kitchen and enjoy the day right along with them.

Whether your ham came from our local butcher shop NB Custom Cuts or another place, Easter is a favorite time to serve ham……

How to Heat a Frozen Ham

Many frozen hams are fully cooked and can be served as soon as they’re properly thawed, which is an ideal solution for a casual brunch with mini sandwiches on the menu. However, if you’re serving an elegant holiday dinner, you’re more likely to prefer a warm centerpiece dish. A fully cooked ham is still a time-saving option; you’ll just need to allot time to heat it in the oven once it’s thawed.

Start by thawing a fully cooked ham in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours.

To keep your ham extra moist, always put the cut-side down. You might also consider placing a baking rack in the pan and adding a quarter-inch of water before placing the ham on the rack.

For a spiral-cut, bone-in ham, heat the oven to 325° F. Remove ham from film and foil. Place ham cut-side down on a raised edge baking pan lined with foil. Heat uncovered 60-75 minutes for the entire ham or 10 minutes per pound for smaller portions.

For a boneless ham, heat the oven to 350° F. Place the ham, cut-side down, on a raised edge baking pan lined with foil. Cover the ham tightly with foil and heat 35-40 minutes.

Another option for adding extra juicy flavor is a glaze, which can be as simple as dissolving three parts brown sugar into one part honey in a small saucepan. Or for a more elegant affair, consider a fruit-infused glaze to complement the savory pork.

A Host of Hams

If you always thought a ham is a ham is a ham, it’s time to think again. From the type of meat to the smoking preparation to specialized slicing that makes serving easy, there are plenty of options to consider from a supplier like Omaha Steaks when choosing the right ham.

For an elegant gathering that demands premium ingredients, an all-natural Duroc Boneless Country Ham may be the answer. These hams tend to feature more marbling for an exceptionally rich flavor and texture, making for a tender, savory and juicy main course with no basting or injection needed.

Put a little flair in your Easter meal with a uniquely flavored ham like the Pecanwood Smoked Flank Ham, smoked with real pecan wood for 8 hours to add a rich yet mellow smoky flavor. This tender, juicy uncured whole-muscle ham earns its place of distinction on your holiday table. Complementary sides with subtle nutty notes, such as a sweet potato casserole, can enhance the menu even more.

Each Spiral-Sliced Ham is slowly smoked with real wood up to 24 hours to infuse flavor and maximize juiciness then generously brushed with a sweet and sticky brown-sugar crust that is torch-glazed to create a flavorful, crunchy crust. It’s spiral-sliced before delivery, so once it’s thawed and heated, it’s ready for quick service to your guests.

Easy Fruit-Infused Glazes

Apricot Glaze

  • 1          teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2       teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 cup apricot nectar, canned

Cranberry Orange Glaze

  • 1          can (16 ounces) cranberry sauce
  • 1          cup brown sugar
  • 1/2       cup orange juice
  • 1/2       teaspoon cloves, ground
  • 1/4       teaspoon cinnamon, ground
  • 1/4       teaspoon allspice
  1. In small saucepan over low heat, combine cranberry sauce, brown sugar, orange juice, cloves, cinnamon and allspice; simmer 5 minutes, before serving.
