DSHS promotes awareness of harmful bacteria in coastal waters

Warm weather in Texas brings a higher risk of marine water-related infections, including those caused by the Vibrio bacteria which are naturally found in coastal water. Most infections occur between May and October, when the warmer water temperatures in the Gulf of Mexico promote the growth of these bacteria. Texas has averaged 90 Vibrio infections per year for the last 10 years.

People can become ill after eating raw or undercooked contaminated seafood, particularly oysters, or when a person has an open wound that is exposed to seawater. Illness due to eating raw or undercooked seafood usually includes gastrointestinal symptoms such as vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, nausea, fever, and chills.

Texas firefighters head to California to help fight deadly wildfires

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Some 98 firefighters from 29 Texas fire departments in 20 counties will head to California this week to fight wildfires that have burned more than 750,000 acres. The deployment is an activation of the Texas Intrastate Fire Mutual Aid System (TIFMAS) for wildfire suppression in Texas and beyond.

“It’s about neighbors helping neighbors,” said Tom Boggus, Texas A&M Forest Service director. “We call TIFMAS our ‘surge capacity’ for Texas. Guess this time their reach is a bit farther away but we hope to make a big impact in people’s lives.”

Ray Lubke reaches 50-year milestone for GM dealer

By Amanda Howell, Brady Standard-Herald

Hard work, loyalty and a genuine love for what you do in your chosen career are hard to come by these days. People's perspective and career ambitions can change at the drop of a hat, so when you find someone with the desire to stick with it, you give credit where credit is due.

After working for half a century as a GM dealer, a career that originated with his first business in Eden, Ray Lubke was recognized for 50 years of service to General Motors last Thursday. Members of the community attended a private ceremony and luncheon to witness the monumental event and share fond memories of Ray over the years.
