Janice Anne Straley, a hometown girl and country music artist, will perform with her band Country Heart from 7 to 9 p.m. First Friday coordinator Paula Bowman said Straley - maiden name Keeton - grew up in Warsaw. In her 20s, Straley went to Nashville and worked with Barbara Mandrell and Dottie West. When she had children, she moved back to northern Indiana. After her children grew up, Bowman said Straley decided to get back in the country music busi ness. "She's very excited about coming back," Bowman said. Before or while Straley takes the stage, enjoy free hot dogs and water melon from 5 to 9 p.m. or until they're gone. They are provided by Owen's Supermarket and Old National Bank.

Due to warmer weather, there is a large population of larvae that will soon hatch, according to a news release from the city. Mosquito spraying is being conducted. The city is divided into four sections (north, north side additions, south and south side addi tions). The spraying crew rotates to a different section on a daily basis, weather per mitting. However, rain, wind or temperatures below 60 degrees will prevent them from spraying and, thus, delay the schedule. Spraying is typically con ducted around sunset or later. It may also be conduct ed in the morning between 5 and 7 a.m. All trucks are equipped with smart flow systems that enable them to spray the lowest necessary concentration to treat the current mosquito conditions. According to the Center for Disease Control, when applied correctly, truck spraying will not harm peo ple, animals or the environ ment. Residents do not need to leave an area when truck spraying takes place. Spraying dissipates quickly, and there are no re entry precautions or limitations. It degrades quickly in the envi ronment and does not bio accumulate. While the fog makes the spray appear greater, amounts as low as six tenths of an ounce may be used per acre (approxi mately the size of a football field). City crews are also treat ing catch basins with bri quettes that activate when the basin is flooded and deactivate when the basin is dry. Areas with stagnant water are also treated with granules that provide three to four weeks of larvae con trol. While West Nile has not yet been detected in Kosciusko County this year, it has been detected in neigh boring areas, such as Elkhart County. Residents are encouraged to take preventative meas ures on their own property to help control the mosquito population. Dispose of unused con tainers that collect water in your yard, such as old buck ets, cans, bottles or jars. Repair leaky pipes and outside faucets, and keep drains and gutters unclogged so the water does not collect in those areas. Change the water and scrub the sides of bird baths, animal troughs and pet watering dishes often to get rid of mosquito larvae. Properly discard of unused tires, make holes in them, or store them in a cov ered area, so that water can City Providing Mosquito Control; Residents Encouraged To Help STAFF REPORT See CITY- Page 2A
