Over the last year 15 events have been produced and the Brewhouse has become the home of Comedy in Modesto. Every Comedian nominated for a Modesto Area Music Award this year has performed at a Brew HA HA which is nominated for Small Event/Series along with the Brewhouse for Venue.

West Nile virus poses special September threat

West Nile virus poses special September threat


SACRAMENTO - The West Nile virus continues to be a problem throughout California with more than twice the number of human cases compared to same time last year.

All month, public health officials have focused on preventive spraying across the region to combat the West Nile virus. One recent target was Oki Park, near Rosemont. That was good news for those gathered at the park Saturday afternoon, especially for Lyn Piegaro who was diagnosed with West Nile virus several years ago.

"It's debilitating. It's very hard, and I'm guessing for the kids and older people it's even worse, which is why I'm very happy that they spray," Piegaro said.

The website FIGHTtheBITE.net shows recently sprayed areas like the section of the American River just north of Oki Park.
