Dear Friends of Orange County Habitat,
We can never say thank you enough for your joyful support, your enthusiastic volunteerism, your generous giving, and your prayers!
  Thank you!  Thank you!   We are excited to announce the launch of the next Student Build Habitat house to begin construction in August on Thornton Street in Paoli!  The foundation is being readied and will serve as a learning laboratory throughout the coming school year for the high school students of the Lost River Career Cooperative.  We acknowledge the assistance of the Smithville Foundation in helping make this build possible.  As we announced at our Annual Dinner, our hope was to have the necessary funding to proceed with our 12th Apostles Build house this fall, as well.  But through careful planning on the part of the Habitat Board, it was decided to postpone the Apostle's Build until the fall of 2018. 
We will miss working with each Apostle Partner this fall and pray that it will not dampen your faithful support!  Please keep you work teams at the ready as we use the year ahead to prepare a partner family and grow our funding sources.  Any contributions you can make this year will have a significant impact on our ministry and can be designated for either the Student Build or the 2018 Apostle's Build. 
We ask that you continue to pray for our ministry to help us serve more low-income Orange County residents.  In addition, we are always looking for qualified Orange County applicants who are able to make low monthly mortgage payments and care for a Habitat home. Applications are available at our office in the Orange County Community Center in Paoli, at the Melton Public Library in French Lick, and the Orleans Public Library in Orleans.  If you know of someone who might make a great new Habitat homeowner, feel free to suggest that they complete an application!  We look forward to introducing to you our newest partner family in the coming months!
With gratitude,
The Orange County Habitat Board, Office:  812-723-3596 or chabitat@yahoo.com

The American Red Cross urges blood donors to give in the final weeks of summer to help overcome a chronic summer blood shortage.  In August, regular donors may delay giving as final summer vacations are planned and back-to-school activities ramp up. To fully meet the needs of hospital patients in the coming days and weeks, donations are urgently needed from new and current donors. Those who donated blood earlier this summer may be eligible to donate again. Blood can be safely donated every 56 days, and Power Red cells can be donated every 112 days.   As a special thank you, those who come out to give blood or platelets with the Red Cross now through Aug. 31 will be emailed a $5 Target eGiftCard™.*   Appointments can be scheduled by downloading the free Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting redcrossblood.org or calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767

Students in southwest Indiana are back in school and Indiana State Police would like to remind everyone the importance of watching for students and for stopping for school buses while they are loading and/or unloading children.  Indiana State Police receive complaints almost daily from school bus drivers, parents and concerned citizens about motorists not stopping for school buses when required. Distracted driving is no doubt a contributing factor, so troopers want to remind all motorists the importance of avoiding distractions while driving, especially near schools.  School bus drivers will activate the buses flashing amber/yellow lights when preparing to stop to load and/or unload children. When motorists observe the flashing amber/yellow lights they should slow down and prepare to stop.  Once the school bus stops and the RED flashing lights are activated and the stop arm is extended, motorists are required to stop and not pass the school bus.  Many motorists are confused when they are required to stop

 

 
On-going reminders: 

 
Dear Fans of Lick Creek Band,

Tick-borne Disease Prevention:   Prevention of tick-borne illness hinges on preventing ticks from attaching and obtaining a blood meal from individuals.  This can be accomplished by avoiding tick habitat, using personal protection methods, and changing the environment to reduce the presence of ticks. Ticks can be found in high grass, low brush, shrubs and depending on life cycle can be found in moist ground litter.  Adult ticks await the passing of a potential host and can recognize them by movement, body heat and exhaled carbon dioxide.   A tick must be attached for several hours to transmit disease.   There are different illnesses that can come from tick bites.   The most common symptoms of tick-related illnesses can include fever-chills, aches and pains, and rash. Early recognition and treatment of the infection decreases the risk of serious complications. Please see your doctor immediately if you have been bitten by a tick and experience any of these symptoms.  The information provided is recommendations from the Indiana State Department of Health and the CDC. If there are any questions or concerns regarding tick-borne illness please contact Lora Sanders, RN at the Orange County Health Department, 1-812-723-7113.

The Orleans Street Department is reminding local residents of the importance of NOT blowing grass clippings out into the town streets, roadways as prohibited by local ordinance. This practice only tends to clog the storm drains, further adding to the town’s flooding problem during periods of heavy rainfall.  Town crews regularly check storm sewer grates, but property and business owners are also encouraged to assist in this endeavor when possible by keeping grates clear of trash items, sticks, limbs in order to allow storm water to run off properly.

Staying safe and independent as you age are goals many of us share. Older adults and individuals with chronic medical conditions risk losing the ability to live safely in their homes due to the increased need of assistance.   Jasper  Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center offers Lifeline, a medical alert assistance serviced for those who wish to live independently in their homes, while maintaining an immediate emergency link to 24/7 Response Center, where trained personnel can talk to the resident immediately and activate the subscriber’s emergency response plan if needed.
With Lifeline, the resident has a communicator unit attached to the telephone and a portable button that is worn around the neck or on the wrist .  When assistance is needed, the portable button is pushed, which sends an electronic message through the telephone to the 24/7 Response Center.    Lifeline has a one-time installation fee of $50.00 and costs starting at $39.00 per month after installation. For more information about these services or to subscribe, please call Jasper Memorial Hospital’s Lifeline Program Facilitator, at (812) 996-2399 option 1 or toll-free at (800) 852-7279, ext. 2399 option 1.
