August 7, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com Brown County Resident First WNV Death Of Season PIERRE, S.D. – The Department of Health reported today a Brown County resident died of West Nile virus (WNV) associated causes, the state’s first WNV related death this season. The individual was in the 80 to 89 age group. “Our sympathy is with the family. We only hope their tragic loss will encourage others to take the threat of West Nile virus seriously,” said Dr. Joshua Clayton, state epidemiologist for the department. “We can’t emphasize enough how important it is for people to protect themselves and their families by using repellent and avoiding the outdoors when mosquitoes are most active.” To date this season, South Dakota has reported 10 cases of human WNV and three hospitalizations. Nationally, 39 cases and one West Nile-associated death have been reported. Clayton said weekly surveillance updates will show cases continuing to climb. South Dakotans can reduce their risk with the following precautions: •Apply mosquito repellents (DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, para-menthane-diol, 2-undecanone or IR3535) to clothes and exposed skin. •Reduce mosquito exposure by wearing pants and long sleeves when outdoors. •Limit time outdoors from dusk to dawn when Culex mosquitoes, the primary carrier of WNV in South Dakota, are most active. •Get rid of standing water that gives mosquitoes a place to breed. •Regularly change water in bird baths, ornamental fountains and pet dishes. •Drain water from flower pots and garden containers. •Discard old tires, buckets, cans or other containers that can hold water. •Clean rain gutters to allow water to flow freely. •Support local mosquito control efforts. These precautions are especially important for people at high risk for WNV, including individuals over 50, pregnant women, organ transplant patients, individuals with cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure or kidney disease, and those with a history of alcohol abuse. People with severe or unusual headaches should see their clinician. Visit the department’s website at westnile.sd.gov for more information. Broadcaster Press 3 Department Of Revenue Warns Of Potential Scam In Trucking Industry PIERRE, S.D. — The South Dakota Department of Revenue urges consumers to take caution when doing business with a fictitious trucking dealership by the name of South Dakota Trucks. According to its website, South Dakota Trucks is located in Rapid City, but the Department of Revenue’s investigation has concluded that there is no such business at the address listed. The company’s website features an inventory of trucks, trailers and more. The Department of Revenue’s motor vehicle division determined that this inventory is already titled in other states through various motor vehicle dealers. If you have questions about the validity of a vehicle featured on the website, contact the motor vehicle division by phone at 605-773-3541. Anyone who has fallen victim to this scam is encouraged to contact the Consumer Protection Division in their respective state. South Dakota’s Consumer Protection division may be reached by phone at 605-773-4400. DPS Encourages Motorists To Be Patient During Sturgis Rally PIERRE, S.D. – Patience will be a virtue for motorists this week as more traffic is expected on South Dakota highways with the start of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. The 78th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally begins Friday, Aug. 3, and runs through Sunday, Aug. 12. That means more motorists on the highways driving different kinds of vehicles, especially in the Black Hills. Officials with the South Dakota Department of Public Safety say that means drivers need to focus on safety. “South Dakota has had eight motorcycle fatalities so far this year; that’s two more than at the same time last year,” says Highway Patrol Superintendent Col. Price. “A majority of the 2018 deaths so far have been due to inexperienced riders. Five of the eight fatalities weren’t wearing helmets.” August is traditionally the state’s highest vehicle fatality month each year. In the last five years, statistics show that most crashes in the Black Hills occur between 12 p.m. and 5 p.m. during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. “We want every motorcyclist to be safe and that’s why we offer both new and experienced rider courses,” says Office of Highway Safety Director Lee Axdahl. “Safe riders know their skill level, their equipment and what needs to be done to increase the odds of returning home safe and sound.” Axdahl says through the Office of Highway Safety’s partnership with the South Dakota Safety Council, both new and experienced riders can take safety courses statewide. Visit https:// southdakotarides.com and follow the link for Rider Safety Courses. The website also offers information needed to negotiate roads in the Black Hills. Rally attendees looking for real-time public safety information about the Sturgis Rally can also follow four Twitter sites at @SDPublicSafety, @ SDHighwayPatrol, @ SouthDakotaDOT and @ RallyTraffic. Motorcyclists and motorists alike are reminded of the rules for sharing the road: *** Motorcyclists should ride in single-file lines and avoid crowding the center line or crowding motorists; *** Motorists should remember not to crowd cycles. Motorcycles have the same rights on the road as motorists; *** Motorists and cyclists should follow the recommended speed limits. Motorcyclists should be especially aware of speed limits on curves; *** It is against the law to drink and drive. Motorists and cyclists should make sure they have sober drivers; *** Motorists should remember to buckle up, it’s the law; and, *** Motorcyclists are encouraged to wear helmets.
