West Nile virus poses special September threat

West Nile virus poses special September threat


SACRAMENTO - The West Nile virus continues to be a problem throughout California with more than twice the number of human cases compared to same time last year.

All month, public health officials have focused on preventive spraying across the region to combat the West Nile virus. One recent target was Oki Park, near Rosemont. That was good news for those gathered at the park Saturday afternoon, especially for Lyn Piegaro who was diagnosed with West Nile virus several years ago.

"It's debilitating. It's very hard, and I'm guessing for the kids and older people it's even worse, which is why I'm very happy that they spray," Piegaro said.

The website FIGHTtheBITE.net shows recently sprayed areas like the section of the American River just north of Oki Park.

Construction on Hwy. 50 caused traffic delays Saturday


For more than three hours, construction on westbound Highway 50 in Sacramento caused a major traffic back up Saturday afternoon.


Caltrans tweeted
Pioneer Bridge was open around 5:30 p.m. It also said road work would resume at 10 p.m. Saturday until 5 a.m. Monday.

At it's peak, traffic was backed up on Hwy. 50 from 39th Street to Westacre Road. Drivers were also seeing a backup on northbound Interstate 5 and Highway 99.

The traffic was due to the "Sac Decked Out" construction project, which started in the spring and is expected to last 17 months.

There are a lot of Farm-to-Fork events about to start this weekend. One I will promote is a free event - the Food Literacy Fair happening on Sunday at 9 a.m. at Southside Park.

What's nice is that it is happening at the same time as the farmers market under the freeway. You can get some education on produce and then go buy it across the street!
