Preventing the Sting

Summertime can bring the sting. The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology recommend tips to ensure a sting-free summer:  Remove old tree stumps, fallen trees, or piles of debris that stinging insects could nest in. Be aware when drinking sweet beverages (soda, juice, etc.) outside, as they can attract insects. Avoid leaving food uncovered, especially sugary and sweet foods. Typical symptoms of a non-allergic insect sting can include redness, swelling and/or itching at the site of the sting. Symptoms of an allergic reaction may include: itching and hives, swelling in the throat or tongue, difficulty breathing, dizziness, stomach cramps, nausea or diarrhea. If a serious reaction occurs, seek medical treatment immediately or call 911.

Last week as the 55th session of the NC Governor's School opens, the NC General Assembly's joint House-Senate Conference Committee released a final budget proposal that preserves funding for the NC Governor's School. The General Assembly's decision to abandon the NC Senate's initial proposal to defund Governor's School comes after a statewide campaign organized by the NC Governor's School Foundation to encourage legislators to save the state's premier summer enrichment program. The final version of the budget allocates $800,000 to Governor's School for the fiscal years 2017-18 and 2018-19.
