It's tough to think about keep- ing a glass of cool water near while busy doing dai- ly tasks, but when it's scorching hot, like summer days in northeast- ern Mon- tana usual- ly are, we must find the disci- Lefs chat pline to hy- drate, hy- Deniece Schwob - drate, hy- drate. It takes a while to come out of heat stroke. INFORMATION BY WWW.MEDICINENET.COM Heat stroke is a form of hyperthermia, an abnor- mally elevated body tem- perature with accompany- ing physical and neurolog- ical symptoms. Unlike heat cramps and heat ex- haustion, two forms of hy- perthermia that are less severe, heat stroke is a true medical emergency that can be fatal if not properly and promptly treated. The body normally gen- erates heat as a result of metabolism and is usually able to dissipate the heat by either radiation of heat through the skin or by evaporation of sweat. However, in extreme heat, high humidity or vigorous exertion under the sun, the body may not be able to dissipate the heat and the body temperature rises, sometimes up to 106F (41.1C) Qr higher. Another cause of heat stroke is de- hydration. A dehydrated person may not be able to sweat fast enough to dissi- pate heat, which causes the body temperature to rise. Those most susceptible to heart strokes include: infants, the elderly (often with associated heart dis- eases, lung diseases, kid- ney diseases or who are taking medications that make them vulnerable to heat strokes), athletes and outdoor workers physical- ly exerting themselves un- der the sun. Symptoms of heat stroke can sometimes mimic those of heart at- tack or other conditions. Sometimes a person expe- riences symptoms of heat exhaustion before pro-' gressing to heat strokes. If only we had that per- son fanning our brow or bringing us a glass of wa- ter at least one every hour - that would be the ticket, aye? Keep a cooler in your rig while traveling - even when you're close to home. And, don't forget about man's best friend, who sometimes Comes along for the ride, also needs water!

Hackberry nipple galls make appearance in Richland County BY BEN LARSON RICHLAND COUNTY MSU'EXTENSION AGENT Local homeowners in Richland County who are fortunate to have a Hack- berry tree in their land- scape may sometimes find odd shaped growths on the underside of the leaves. The growths look like round blisters or tear drop shaped bumps on the leaves and are called nip- ple galls. The galls are caused by a small insect called a psyllid (pro- nounced sigh-lid). The adults emerge from cre- vasses in tree bark in early spring to mate and lay eggs on developing leaves of hackberry trees. The eggs SUBMITTED Bumps on the leaves are called nipple galls. hatch in about a week. The nymphs feed on the leaves and induce the leaves to grow around it until the nymph is completely en- closed by the gall.The galls are not lethal to the tree SUBMITTED The adult psyllid insect resemble small cicadas with a reddish brown color and mottled wings. but can cause early leaf high enough. After the drop if the populations are nymphs complete their de- velopment inside the gall, the insects will emerge from the galls as adults in September and look for lo- cations to spend the win- ter. The adults resemble small cicadas with a red- dish brown color and mot- tled wings. They often will try to enter homes in the fall as they search for warmer protected areas. Control measures are not considered necessary. There are natural enemies that often prey on the psyl- lids and keep them at lev- els that are not a threat. However, the insects are' susceptible to applications of insecticides such as imi- dacloprid and pyrethroids, among others. Engagements I .............................
