Part one three about HABs in Ohio's fresh water BY ANNE COBURN-GRIFFIS DHI Media Editor agriffts@pntnamsentinelxom PUTNAM COUNTY �?" Last week, the residents of Hancock County�?Ts McComb turned on their taps to find that their water glasses, sinks and tubs were filling with brown water. While authorities assured them that the manganese-rich water, taken in from Rader Creek and treats by the village�?Ts water treatment plant, is safe to drink, many of McComb�?Ts water customers are taking the village up on its current offer of two cases of bottled water a week. While the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency assures this village that their brown water is safe to drink, the same is not always said for water that has been tinted green from the presence of algae. There is no generally accepted definition of algae. Algae are not garden variety plants. They lack the various structures that characterize land plants. Most ate aquat> ic, with the largest and most complex known as marine seaweeds. Algae comes in a variety of colors, including purple and gold, although most blooms are green algae and are not harmful when ingested. Other types of algae are blue-gteen (cyanobacteria), and while not all of t¿sc are harmful, some have the ability to produce toxins. Sec WATER, page 11 100 percent of Ohio�?Ts lice found to be �?~super lice�?T BY STEVEN COBURN- . GRIFFIS DHI Media Staff Writer sgriffls@delphosherald.com Fall. It�?Ts just around the corner. With it comes the harvest, football games, bonfires in the evenings...and a booming crop of head lice. "When we�?Tve seen (lice) around here is in the fall,�?T�?T commented Jean Gemmer, RN, and school nurse at St. John�?Ts. �?oThis is the time of year when kids play with each other�?Ts hair and they go to sleep overs. The transmission is through contact; it�?Ts head to head.�?T�?T Gemmer was quick to add that, thankfully, there�?Ts been no issue so far at her school �?�- "I�?Tm hoping that we have a really good year and we don�?Tt have that proUem," she whispered, fingers crossed �?" but if there is, it could well prove more of a hardship than in years past. This year, the lice are bigger and badder than ever before, resistant to traditional treatment methods and hard as nails. This is the year of the super louse. Head lice are obligate parasites, meaning that they require a particular kind of host; in this case, human beings. It�?Ts not possible to acquire head lice ftom dogs, cats, birds or any other animal aside from another person. And the presence or absence of lice is not an indication of hygiene. Even the most scrupulously clean children (and head lice are most commo^y found on children aged 10 and under) are susceptible. Although this basic understanding is universal in the healthcare field, bias persists among the uninitiated and many believe that the presence of head lice indicates poverty, poor hygiene and a slovenly lifestyle. "That�?Ts so untrue,�?� Gemmer insisted. "It�?Ts not from that. Nof atáll.�?� While annoying �?" head lice feed on blood and their bites often itch �?" head lice are not dam gerous and don�?Tt carry diseaser. They can, however, prove difficult to deal with, particularly the; newer, resistant strains.    ; See LICE, page 11 Clnssifieds 10 j Country 5 J Entortainnionf 11 | bor Tho Record 2 | local State 3 4 | Ohituanes 2 | Sports 6 8 | Weatl|Or The Delphos Kiwanis and Rotary clubs will offer the 36th annual Blood Screening Program from 7-9 a.m. Sept. 26 and Oct. 3 at Jefferson High School.
