The property, located on Johnsville Road near the Mo- hawk Cafe, belongs to Ann Sherrard and her two sons, Tom and William. According to Public Works Director Tom Hunter, the county needs the property to elimi- nate a dangerous curve, as part of the rehabilitation of the Johnsville Road between Highway 89 and Poplar Val- ley Road. Deputy Counsel Julia Cole- man told the board of super- im nresponslve visors during its Nov. 20 meeting that she has been un- able to get a response from the family members. "I have made many, many attempts to contact the Sher- rards and have received no response at all," she said. Coleman said she sent sever- al written offers to all three of the Sherrards. On one occasion, Coleman said she reached the wife of" Tom Sherrard, who said the family didn't object to selling the property. But, Coleman said, she couldn't confirm that fact with any of the three actual owners. Coleman asked the board to approve "the fin'st step in the process of condemning the property." The first step is a "resolu- tion of necessity." According to the county counsel's office, "A resolution of necessity es- tablishes the specific use for which a property may be pos- sessed through eminent do- main and lists the statutory authority for the taking, among other things." The Sherrards will have a chance to respond at a public hearing scheduled for Dec. 11. Supervisor Robert Meacher wanted to know why the su- pervisors would be willing to take this step on the Mohawk property, when it was unwill. ing to do so to obtain the ani- mal shelter property in Greenville. "The difference here is eight years," Hunter said. The supervisors unanimous- ly voted to support the coun- W counsel's request.

More than 40 million Americans will wheeze sneeze, cough and hack their way through the winter months, think- ing they have a chronic cold. In actuality, they don't. What many are experiencing is a result of something much more sinister - indoor allergens. These minute panicles are the cul- prits that can cause debilitating allergic reactions. One out of five Americans will experience an allergy- related illness at some time, and indoor allergens will be the cause for many of these cases. Moreover, deaths from serious allergy-related illnesses, like asthma, have increased 33% over the last decade, with treatment for asthma-related ill- nesses costing more than $6 billion a year. Winter Allergies. As the weather gets colder, people tend to spend more time indoors with windows sealed shut. This decreases air circulation and incre es the buildup of indoor allergens, like particles from dust mites, cockroaches, rodents and certain chemicals, as well as mold spores and animal dander, which is the dead skin and dried saliva from pets. Allergy Avoidance Tips. Completely ridding an indoor environment of dust mites and other allergens is virtually impossible but there are ways to maintain a low level of these assailants. Change and clean cooling and heating system filters once a month. For cars, there is the auto air purifier that plugs into the cigarette lighter. Have your home, care and office vacuumed and dusted frequently. Use a vacuum that features a high efficienc particulate air type filtration. This reduces allergens by more than 90%. Also, for dusting, use specially designed fabric like the Dustbunny from Allergy-Free, Inc. The Dustbunny has a magnetic charge that picks up dust par- ticles. If you do your own dusting, use a dust mask. Reduce humidity in damp areas by using a dehumidifer set between 25 to 50%. This will help conl;rol dust mites, which cannot live at low humidity levels. Clean dehumidi- tiers once a week. Keep bathroom and kitchen surfaces dry, fix leaky plumbing, and seal cracks where water can seep in to avoid mold buildup. Wash blankets and bedspreads weekly and sheets and pillowcases more often. Regularly wash curtains. Be sure that the water is above 130F, because dust mites cannot live above this temperature. Use a dryer, because pollen clings to fabrics dried outdoors. Regularly treat carpeting and upholstered furniture with an anti-allergen dust spray that will neutralize dust mites, pet dander and certain pollens. If you have a cat or dog, reduce household allergens by washing your pet once a week. It has been shown that simply pouring a pitcher of lukewarm water over your pet once every week greatly reduces indoor allergen levels. Certain soaps, as well as flea powders, can cause allergic reactions. Sleeping with your pet, long or short-haired, greatly increases the amount of contact with unwanted allergens. Make the bedroom a pet-free zone, If you have questions regarding allergies, always contact.your medical professional today!
