Rehearsals will be Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays throughout " September and early October. "We will be rehearsing three times a week from now through the second FDtt week of October," Dunbar said. "The last set of rehearsals will be of the dress variety with lighting and sound also coming into play." • Work on the set for the play contin- ues, but has passed the midway point. Combining with RWSIR's Maintenance Department, the Institute's 75th Anniversary Committee has pitched in to help with set preparation and con- struction, and will continue in this role until completion later this month.

Barnes, Chairman (9:11) Hunters Warned About Mosquitoes Many sportsmen and women have expressed con- cern about the risk of con- tracting West Nile Virus (WNV) while dove hunting. Although it is possible that mourning doves could be infected with West Nile Virus, the possibility of trans- mission of the virus to a dove hunter is very remote. According to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division (WRD), hunters should not worry as much about contracting WNV'from handling doves, as they should about getting bitten by an infected mos- quito while hunting. "The Division recom- mends that hunters use basic precautions when handling game birds, such as wearing rubber gloves," says WRD Chief. of Game Management Todd Holbrook. "However, the best advice is to use com- mon senseandheedthe warn- ings about mosquitoes pro- vided by the Georgia Department of Human Resources in order to avoid contracting the virus." West Nile Virus is a close relative of other types of mosquito-borne via'uses that circulate in Georgia every year. Prior to August 1999, WNV had never been report- ed in the Western Hemisphere. Most people who are infected with WNV do not even get sick. However, a small proportion of infected people - mostly people over age 50 - may become ill with symptoms of encephalitis (inflammation of the brain) and require hos- pitalization. Mosquitoes spread the virus by feeding on the blood of infected birds. The disease cannot be spread from person to person. It is highly unlikely that healthy-looking wild birds are infected with WNV. An unhealthy bird would appear disoriented and unable to fly. As with all wild game, body fluid from.the andmal should not contact open wounds on the hunter's hands or the hunter's mucous membranes (eyes, nose, mouth). Rubber or latex gloves should be worn while cleaning game birds or game animals to limit contact with bodily fluids. Since thorough cooking will inactivate the virus, as well as most pathogens people can acquire from wild game birds, consuming properly cooked dove meat (not rare) is safe. Be sure to wash hands and utensils thoroughly. For more information about mosquito control around your home or to report a dead bird, call your county health department.
