WARNING: You don’t want me to find your pet trapped in a hot car. Seriously.
If you’re lucky, your license plate will be announced over the PA.
If you’re not so lucky, we’ll let the local constabulary settle the matter of whether removal of the overheated animal constitutes trespass or you get charged with animal cruelty.

National Institutes of Health: Rethinking inhaled steroids for mild persistent asthma
June 4, 2019 - In a short-term clinical trial, many patients with mild persistent asthma didn’t respond any better to inhaled steroids than placebo.
FTC: June 10, 2019 - One Ring Scam Returns With A New Twist
A while back, we warned you about the “one ring” scam. That’s when you get a phone call from a number you don’t know, and the call stops after just one ring. The scammer is hoping you’ll call back, because it’s really an international toll number and will appear as a charge on your phone bill — with most of the money going to the scammer. Well, the scam is back with a vengeance, and the FCC just issued a new advisory about it. Read the FCC’s advisory for more detail, but the advice from both agencies remains the same if you get one of these calls: https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/…/get-one-ring-call-dont-call-…
Washington State Fire Wire: We Are No Longer Awaiting Fire Season… It’s Here.
2019 FIRE SEASON - WASHINGTON STATE: With climbing temperatures, no precipitation in the forecast and most of western Washington facing drought level conditions already, we are no longer awaiting Fire Season... it’s here.
Washington State Department of Natural Resources posted a video: link here.
Hot, dry weather is heading our way. No rain in the forecast for the next 7 days, and 71 percent of Washington is already in a drought. DNR Meteorologist Josh Clark and Wildfire Fuels Specialist Vaughn Cork talk about what this means for our fire danger risk.
Lewis County Solid Waste Utility: Open House June 15 - Compost Demonstration Site
MEDFORD, Ore. - Throughout the United States and Europe beekeepers have been reporting annual hive losses of 20 percent or higher. One in four bee species in the U.S. is at risk of extinction.
On Wednesday, a local Medford couple had a tree that has been in their front yard for decades removed due to an upcoming road widening project. That tree is also home to around 80,000 honey bees. Instead of killing the bees or destroying their habitat they contacted an arborist that worked with a beekeeper to relocate the entire hive; an 8 ft. 500-600 lb. hive.

Pam Peak Meade says: ATTENTION all parents and guardians!
Monday and Tuesday are days for you to come into the school and look through the Lost and Found clothing racks.
Unclaimed items will be set out Thursday and Friday for anyone to take.
The remainder will either go to the Kids Closet or to a local charity.
There are some very nice items that we're sure you'd like to have back.
You can stop by the office during school hours to let us know that you'd like to go through the racks.

Tech Tuesday: How to Build a DIY Air Conditioner in Minutes for Less Than $10
Reprinted from July 2018
I couldn’t decide whether this project belonged in Tech Tuesday (even though it’s very low-tech) or in Thursday’s Health Column. Since it’s hotter than blazes, I opted for sooner than later.
Even healthy folks can protect themselves from the toll high temps take on their system; those with health conditions, advanced years, and the very young are more susceptible to extreme heat.
The Mayo Clinic explains why hot weather puts extra stress on your body:
“To help cool itself, your body sends more blood to circulate through your skin. This leaves less blood for your muscles, which in turn increases your heart rate. … Under normal conditions, your skin, blood vessels and perspiration level adjust to the heat. But these natural cooling systems may fail if you’re exposed to high temperatures and humidity for too long …”
