Milan teachers find ways to impact youth

Everyone has a ‘small world’ type of story to tell; for example, when we meet someone we know in a far away place. Often we seem to find random connections to others we didn’t know we had.

It seems that every path they travel in life, they continue to meet. Read the entire story by Jared Rogers on page 7 of The Versailles Republican. Pick up a copy at your local newsstand.

Tips for healthy, safe swimming

The week before Memorial Day has been designated as “Healthy and Safe Swimming Week.” The goal is to encourage the benefits of swimming by promoting healthy and safe swimming practices. Just two and a half hours of water-based or other physical activity per week has health benefits for everyone. In 2011–2012, which are the last years for which national data are available, 90 outbreaks were linked to swimming with almost half of these outbreaks caused by cryptosporidium parasite (or “crypto” for short). Chlorine can kill most germs within minutes at concentrations recommended by CDC. Read more on page 7 of The Versailles Republican.
