MISS — We can’t help but wonder what Valley’s Edge developer Bill Brouhard could have done differently. One such claim, published on this page in a recent letter to the editor, may take the modern-day cake. Reflect upon the fact that we already have one of the best snowpacks in recent memory, and still have a few weeks to go. (In the meantime, of course, our health-conscious state would continue to force needle distribution programs into cities that don’t want them.) Like, for example, most farmers — you know, the people responsible for feeding the planet, a good number of whom are still self-employed.
“Ticks love moisture,” said Linda Giampa, executive director of the Bay Area Lyme Foundation. And Lyme disease isn’t the only tick-borne disease of concern. “It doesn’t create the bullseye rash that Lyme disease does, but it creates this really ugly black spot on your arm,” said Michie. “One is as I mentioned before…even if it bites you and the tick has Lyme disease that doesn’t mean that you necessarily are infected with Lyme disease. The Bay Area Lyme Foundation has resources to help patients advocate for themselves.23 days ago The Mercury News

Legislators in Connecticut, Maryland, Minnesota, New Jersey and New Mexico have introduced voting rights measures, while Michigan’s secretary of state is preparing a plan. They seek to implement on a statewide basis many of the protections under the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965, a law that many Democrats and voting rights groups say is being stripped of its most important elements. If the legislation is enacted, the states would join California, New York, Oregon, Washington and Virginia in having comprehensive voting rights laws. Some state voting rights bills also seek to create databases for information that has not always been readily available, such as polling place locations, voting rules and redistricting maps. Passing state voting rights legislation is only half the battle, said state Sen. Jennifer McClellan, a Virginia Democrat who introduced a state voting rights act that passed in 2021 when Democrats controlled both houses of the Legislature and the governor's office.25 days ago The Register Citizen
