Pomona, NY - The fist pools of mosquitoes testing positive for West Nile virus this year in Rockland County have been confirmed by the State Health Department, County Health Commissioner Dr. Joan Facelle said Monday.

Four pools of adult mosquito samples tested positive for the virus – one in the Town of Ramapo, one in the Town of Haverstraw and two in the Town of Clarkstown.

The mosquitoes were collected during the week of July 18 as part of the county’s ongoing West Nile virus surveillance efforts.

There have been no human cases of the virus in Rockland.

Facelle said health department mosquito control teams will continue to treat all known mosquito breeding sites, including those near those positive pools. Larval control activities will continue throughout the rest of the summer.

"Treating", in this instance, means spraying the pools, ponds and puddles where the mosquitoes lay their eggs, thereby killing them.

Now you may consider yourself enlightened, Miri!

Don't go to the country.

Now we have another good reason to remain in the city.

There are far less fatal car accidents, pool drownings, lack of tnizus in the country, never mind the ruchnius'dik 'negative impact on the men', who remain in the city without their wives, all week long...... now we have another good reason why not to go to the country and live a far healthier and happier lifstyle, B'Ruchnius and BeGashmius, in the city.

"Don't go to the country.

Which city do YOU live in, Ubacharta Bachayim #5? Chelm?

"never mind the ruchnius'dik 'negative impact on the men' "

If a man cannot control himself while his wife is away then he is no Man (capital letter intentional).

" now we have another good reason why not to go to the country and live a far healthier and happier lifstyle [sic]"

Yes, I am sure you are quite correct in what you have stated there. But I think you will find that the air is fresher, and loaded with less pollutants and noxious chemicals, in the country. But hey! If YOU want to miss an opportunity to live as HaShem intended you go right ahead. We won't stop you.

A. N., comment # 6 is wrong.

If you want to stick your head in the sand and pretend nothing is happening, enjoy your dream but it's well known that there are unspeakable events which regularly take place as a direct result of the Men not being home all week for 8 weeks in a row, except for once a week on the weekend.

It's true that there is some benefit to going to the country but those in the know are all too well aware of the all too high price to pay, Beruchnius.

It's true that there is never any justification for any Man, to sin, ever.

However the reality of life, is a fact and not a theory, as you wish it to be.

You are ignoring the facts of what actually happens unfotunately, all too often.

We pray every day "Al Tevienu Leyedey Nisayon" and Torah demands that every Man is absolutely required to make sure he does not deliberately and intentianlay, bring himslef to any situation which brings on any additinal Nisayon.

There is nothing worse in that realm than the Nisayon brought on, for 8 weeks, week after week.

The results are well known unfortunately , although shamefull and unspeakable, so we pretend the problem doesn't exist.
