    MOSQUITOES TEST POSITIVE FOR WEST NILE VIRUS

    The City of Sugar Land has confirmed the presence of West Nile virus at mosquito traps located in the Sugar Land Business Park and the Sugar Creek subdivision.

    The mosquitoes tested positive for West Nile on Sept. 9.

    The City increased mosquito spraying to twice per week this summer and has been working closely with the Texas Department of State Health Services to trap and test mosquitos for the presence of the West Nile virus. The traps supplement the City’s larvicide and mosquito spraying operations.

    Humans can contract West Nile virus from a mosquito bite. Infected mosquitoes get the virus from feeding on infected birds. The virus can cause serious illness or death. There have been three confirmed cases of people with West Nile virus in Fort Bend County since July 30.

    Dr. Joe Anzaldua, the City’s medical director and health authority, urges residents to take precautions to reduce West Nile exposure.

    “Residents should use insect repellent whenever they are outdoors and avoid going outside at dusk and dawn,” said Anzaldua. “People over 50 years old and those with compromised immune systems are at a higher risk of becoming seriously ill if infected with the virus. If people have symptoms that cause them concern, they should contact their healthcare provider immediately.”

    There are no medications to treat or vaccines to prevent West Nile virus infection. Symptoms may include a stiff neck, vision problems, body tremors, mental confusion, memory loss and seizures. The milder form of the illness is West Nile Fever. Symptoms may include fever, headache, muscle and bone aches, nausea and drowsiness. People with the milder form of the illness typically recover on their own, although symptoms may last for several weeks. Up to 80 percent of people infected with West Nile virus will have no symptoms and will recover on their own. Anyone with questions or concerns should contact their doctor.

    The Texas Department of State Health Services recommends practicing the "Four Ds":

  • Use insect repellent containing DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus.
  • Dress in long sleeves and long pants when you are outside.
  • Stay indoors at dusk and dawn when mosquitoes are most active.
  • Drain standing water where mosquitoes breed. Common breeding sites include old tires, flowerpots and clogged rain gutters.



    A LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

    As all or most of you know, a new church, ALPHA-OMEGA INTERNATIONAL, has moved into the old Gateway Church property on Alston across from Barrington Place Elementary. The resulting traffic has been a nightmare for the residents of Barrington Place, particularly those on Alston and other streets in the vicinity. You may have asked yourself what the Association has been doing about this situation.

    Unfortunately we have absolutely no control over the situation since the church is not on HOA property. We have done everything we can legally do. We have sent them letters and invited them to board meetings to discuss the situation and try to resolve it. The church rejected our request that they hire a police officer to direct traffic.

    The church pastor assured the HOA that its parking lot would be completed by August 19. Judge for yourself whether that will happen as you drive by the church.

    We have also talked to Sugar Land police and city council to try and get some help.

    There ARE things you as residents can do. If you see a dangerous traffic or parking situation involving the church, call SLPD at 281-275-2525. File complaints. Also call or email our city councilman, Steve R. Porter. His phone numbers are 281-275-2313 or 281-275-2721. His email address is sporter@sugarlandtx.gov. Finally if you feel the need to document problems photographically or through video, have other residents with you as witnesses.

    Most importantly, they are creating the problem, not us. We must maintain the upper ground. Do not do anything that will get yourself in trouble or reflect badly on you or Barrington Place.

    Phillip H. Rippenhagen, President, Barrington Place HOA
