Raccoon with Distemper

A raccoon in the advanced stages of distemper was seen early Tuesday morning on Park Ave. Animal Control came immediately to get the very sick animal. There is no cure and it will be euthanized. Animal Control said that the raccoon population has exploded in the east end of town and with it, distemper will also be present in a large number of them. Symptoms are: confusion, blindness, mucus discharge, or wandering aimlessly. They will also lose their fear of humans.

While raccoon distemper will not affect humans, it will be contagious to unvaccinated dogs or cats. Keep your pets away from an infected raccoon and do not handle them unless you wear gloves. Call Animal Control immediately.

Clean Sweep 2016

FPNA will once more take to the streets for “trash day” when we participate in the Celebrate CB Clean Sweep on Tuesday, May 17th. Volunteers are asked to meet at the pump house at 5:30 at the top of Glen Ave. to get trash bags and our assignments, all within our own neighborhood. Please bring your own gloves. We will then spread out through every street and alley to find all those unsightly bits of debris. When we’ve finished our rounds, we can place our bags in the vacant lot next to 171 Glen (by one of our poles) for later pickup. Afterwards, we are all invited to Bayliss Park for free hot dogs cooked by our Mayor and members of our City Council, which is due to begin around 7:00 p.m.—a fitting reward for our labors.

All,
The Council Bluffs Parks Dept. has asked landscape architectural students from UNL to study the proposed renovations to Fairmount Park and to present their findings to the public.

Their second presentation will occur on May 4th from 6-8 p.m. in the Harvester Lofts Building and will incorporate the comments they received from the public after their first presentation.

These students value our input and it is important that we attend to show that we’re interested in what happens to our beautiful and historic park. Admission is free. Refreshments will be served.
