As the weather warms up and new leaves start to grow on the trees, wild animals become very active. Springtime is a great time to see birds returning from migration, animals searching for mates and nesting sites, and the arrival of young.
A wild animal’s chief concern is survival. They need food, water, space and shelter. Any available area that provides these things is an opportunity for them to create a home. In order to happily co-exist with native wildlife so that we can enjoy watching them without creating problems for them or ourselves, there are a few simple things to keep in mind.

Sometimes it’s difficult to keep up with housecleaning chores. But imagine staying on top of laundry, dishes and floors without the time-saving appliances we often take for granted. Simple maintenance on your washers and dryers, dishwashers, and vacuum cleaners ensures you get the most life out of these indispensable helpers. Read on for a few tips:
Vacuums collect dust. It may sound obvious, but both bag and bagless vacuums need periodic attention to work properly. Once the bag or receptacle is full, running the vacuum cleaner only stresses its motor, grinds dirt more deeply into the carpet, and stirs up dust. Be careful where and what you vacuum, too — damp surfaces and debris with moisture (like food) collect inside the vacuum hose, causing dust to stick and potentially clog the pathway to the holding receptacle. Once inside, damp material can also mold, which may cause a mildew smell when you vacuum later.
House Bill 13, introduced last month, would permit a mother who is breastfeeding her baby to be excused from jury service. State Rep. Anne Gonzales (R-Westerville) proposed the bill after a constituent told her about an experience while serving on a jury while breastfeeding. ...
For years, parents of kids diagnosed with celiac disease, or those given a more obscure diagnosis of non-celiac gluten sensitivity, have spent time and money restructuring their meal plans to ensure that the food they eat only includes gluten-free ingredients.
It’s easier for some people to understand the term “food allergy” than it is for them to understand having to avoid certain foods because
of a disease like celiac. Unlike those with a wheat allergy, kids with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity can have symptoms like the inability
to properly digest gluten; bloating
or pain in the abdomen; vomiting; constipation; irritability and behavioral issues; pale, foul-smelling or fatty stool; delayed growth and puberty; and many others, according to the Celiac Disease Foundation. Eating gluten-free — for those with celiac disease, non-celiac gluten sensitivity or a wheat allergy — is a medical intervention for conditions to which there is no cure.
