A family in need of prayer

Family is special and loving. It’s what makes us who we are, through the good and the bad.

Family is in our hearts.

Today our rodeo family is hurting. We’ve lost one of our own, a precious little life that had shared her vibrant personality with us for just a few months. Her momma and daddy, big brother and big sister will forever have a void, and no words will provide them comfort – they just need our love and prayers.

They need family, and ours in rodeo is quite large. As word spread across this great land this morning, thousands upon thousands of prayers were launched. Tears are being shed and hearts are breaking; virtual hugs are shared between friends who are hundreds of miles apart.

That’s family. In the best of times, family is your greatest cheerleader. In the worst, it is your support system. That’s where the rodeo family excels.

I ask you to join us in praying for our rodeo family, and this family in particular. We’re not supposed to bury our children, no matter their age.

This family needs our love now more than ever.

Be on the Lookout for These Invasive Species

Lifestyles - Fri, 10/17/2014 - 09:40
Five words or less

(NewsUSA) - Insects originating in foreign countries, commonly called invasive species, are a major concern in the U.S. because they often don't have natural predators, allowing their populations to grow quickly. The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) reminds homeowners that several of these invasive species can be a threat or a nuisance to families or properties.

According to the NPMA, here are the five most common invasive species that homeowners encounter:

1. Brown marmorated stink bugs arrived in Pennsylvania in 1996 from Asia. The stink bug earned its name from its tendency to release an odor when disturbed or when crushed. While quite harmful to the agricultural industry, stink bugs do not pose a threat to people's health, but their tendency to invade homes in high numbers can be a nuisance.

2. Red imported fire ants (also known as RIFAs) are an invasive species from Brazil that are found throughout the South and in parts of California and other western states. RIFAs will attack humans who disturb or threaten their nests, inflicting painful bites and stings. Those allergic to insect stings will react more severely.

3. Formosan termites were brought into the U.S. from China in military cargo shipments after World War II. This termite species is one of the most destructive, forming huge underground colonies, and is more aggressive in nature, consuming more wood, flooring and wallpaper at much faster rates than other species. Formosan termites are difficult to control once they infest an area and can cause severe structural damage to a home in as little as six months.

4. Rasberry crazy ants are spreading rapidly throughout the Southwest. First found in Texas in 2002, its common name comes from the workers' habit of running in an erratic, jerky manner when searching for food. The ants can bite humans and feed on plants, other insects and even small animals.

5. Conehead termites, an invasive species native to the Caribbean, were first introduced to the U.S. in 2001 and are currently found in Florida. Unlike most termites, the conehead termite does not rely on underground tunneling to travel. Instead, they forage on the ground like ants, allowing them to spread rapidly. As an extremely aggressive species, they are known to cause widespread property damage in a short amount of time.
