WHAT DEFINES A DROUGHT? “Drought does not necessarily mean no rain, just less than the average rainfall. The greater the severity of the drought, the lower than average rainfall. We have had rainfall events and the last rainfall event of significance corresponds with the gestation period of a mosquito, resulting in the current outbreak.” (Courtesy of Scott Elmer/Public Works)
MOSQUITO SPRAYING: “An environmentally friendly pesticide, Kontrol 30-30, is used by the City. Special attention is given to locations where mosquitoes swarm, including public drainage areas and parks. The City will continue to monitor the issue and may repeat the extra sprayings, if necessary.” (Courtesy of Public Works)
YOUR HOME? “Spray inside your home using a “flying insect spray”. Be sure to follow directions on the label.”

THE BRIGHT STAR? In the western sky just after sunset is the planet Venus. It is really bright because it is “close” to earth. It is the brightest natural object in night time sky aside the Moon. It also appears in the East before sunrise. This means Venus is either the evening star or the morning star because Venus is orbiting the sun like the earth.
IS THERE A “SOUTH” STAR? Look for the answer and a fact about the “North” star you may not know in the October 2nd HOTLINE.
