MINUTES OF THE REGULAR MEETING OF THE VIENNA PLANNING BOARD HELD APRIL 27, 2016 The meeting convened at 7:00 PM at the Town House. Regular members present were Waine Whittier, Alan Williams, Creston Gaither and Ed Lawless. Also present were Russ Burtt and his father, Vaughn Burtt. Minutes of the March 23 meeting were read and accepted. Russ Burtt would like an after-the fact permit for a camp and a bridge on his property depicted on tax map 7 as Lot 27 (See also minutes of the March 23 meeting). These structures lie within the Stream Protection District in the Shoreland Zone. The bridge is critical to the entire project so it is his priority. He has applied to D.E.P. for a permit but has not received one, it being a Permit By Rule situation. He believes that D.E.P.’s nonresponse constitutes a Permit By Rule, as they have not sent any sort of refusal of the project. Alan said that his experience is that a nonresponse constituting a Permit By Rule is quite typical of D.E.P. Waine noted that the application Russ presented said that D.E.P. would notify the Town of the application. At 7:35 the Board went with the Burtts to the site. On site they indicated an intent to replace the wooden ramp they’ve built at the bridge with stone. Creston was authorized to issue the usual permit by letter for the bridge on these conditions:

2). he will provide evidence that his soil erosion plan is acceptable to Code Enforcement Officer John Archard. As daylight was waning the Board did not visit the camp itself and thus has not formally deliberated on the issuance of a permit for it. The meeting adjourned at 8:00

FROM THE HEALTH OFFICER Bites, Big and Small Dan Onion, MD, MPH Mt. Vernon/Vienna Health Officer 293-2076; [email protected] May, 2016 Spring is here, when bugs, dogs and people are out and interact more. So let’s talk about how to avoid and/or handle the plague of dog, tick, and mosquito bites. Dogs: The two most common victims of dog bites are little children and runners, kids because they don’t have dog manners and put their hands on places dogs don’t like, and runners because as they run by houses, in a dog’s view, they are invading the dog’s territory. There are two sets of issues with a dog bite. First, could the dog have rabies? Unlikely but possible. If the dog’s owner can assure you that the dog has had a rabies vaccination recently, then there is little concern about this rare disease. But if it is a stray dog and can’t be captured (could it be a coyote?) to quarantine for a couple weeks, or if the dog and/or the owner are not around, then the victim may need the 8-shot rabies vaccine series. Shots are paid for by the state Center for Disease Control, though you may have to pay for a clinic to "

FROM THE HEALTH OFFICER CONTINUED administer the shot. And by the way, bats in Maine, can carry rabies and transmit it in saliva wiped to your mouth or eyes, without a bite. The second problem is treatment of the bite wound. Most animals, like humans, carry germs in their mouths that can cause bad wound infections. So a short course of antibiotics needs to be given at the time of initial treatment to decrease this likelihood. And bite wounds often require some tricky stitching to prevent too much scarring, if a chunk of tissue is bitten out. At the same time, neat, tight wound closure can lead to a higher chance of infection; so often some open areas are left. In short, get thee to a doctor for repair and antibiotics. Ticks: I’ve written about deer ticks before, but their increasing prevalence after this mild winter, and the Lyme disease germ they carry (as well as other rarer, exotically named disease: ehrlichiosis, babesiosis, and anaplasmosis) warrant repetition. There are two common types of ticks here, the benign common dog tick (apple seed-sized), and deer ticks, which are sometimes (not always) carriers of these diseases. Deer ticks are half the size of dog ticks, and lack the latters’ white "racing stripes" down the back. Deer tick nymphs (babies), more common this time of year, are as small as poppy seeds. Ticks attach to people or animals and fill with blood to 10 times their size over several days. If a tick carries Lyme (fewer than 10% do), the longer it stays on a person, the more likely it is to transmit it. If the tick is attached for less than 24 hours, disease rarely follows; most patients with Lyme disease have had a tick on for over a week. The disease itself causes a circular (usually over 3 inches in diameter), non-tender rash in 90%, called erythema chronicum migrans, which resembles a red "ringworm" rash around a red bite site or a bull’s eye, and follows the bite one to several weeks later. Fever, aching body and joints, and headache also occur as the rash reaches its peak and begins to fade. If not treated, later complications involving heart, nerves, brain, and joints can occur weeks and months later. Don’t be alarmed by the small mosquito bite-like red spot appearing at the site of the bite itself within a day or two; it just reflects the bite injury, not a Lyme infection. So how can you avoid these troubles? First, the most important thing is to use DEET-containing bug dope to discourage ticks from climbing on you. Secondly, you should check yourself and your children for ticks every day in the spring through early fall, after being outside. This can be hard in places difficult to see, like the back sides of your knees or trunk. I thought I'd grown a big skin tag behind my knee for several days until I looked with a mirror and saw it was an engorged (swollen) tick. And wash, or at least heat in a dryer, clothes worn outside that may or do have ticks on them. If you find a tick buried in your skin, it isn’t swollen, and you are pretty sure it hasn't been on for more than a couple days, just remove it; your chances of developing disease are very small. Slow steady pressure to pull it off usually works. Don't try to burn it off. Use tweezers, a leatherman, or very effective, inexpensive “tick spoons” (available at local stores), to pull steadily but gently for the "

FROM THE HEALTH OFFICER CONTINUED several minutes it takes to get the tick to release. Breaking the body off, leaving the head, has some small residual risk of infection. If the tick is engorged and/or may have been on for several days, taking a single preventive dose of prescription doxycycline, will reduce your chances of getting Lyme from 3% to 0.6%. If you develop a ring rash around the bite site weeks later, or in a place where you weren't aware you'd been bitten, then you should be given a course of antibiotics for 2-3 weeks, doxycycline/ tetracycline for most, amoxicillin or cefuroxime for pregnant women and children. The downside of the latter alternative antibiotics is that they don't also cover the rare co-infections with ehrlichiosis and babesiosis. You will need to see a doctor to evaluate the rash; ask for an urgent appointment. The rare late complications are also treated with antibiotics if proven due to Lyme by blood tests. Mosquitos: Risks from mosquitos, beside their bother-someness, are very small. But we do have Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus in many local birds (like crows), which can be transmitted to horses (hence “equine) and humans. Encephalitis is, like meningitis, a brain infection, and can be very serious. Everybody is now hearing about the Zika virus in Brazil; it could come to the Southern US soon carried by anopheles mosquitos, which we don’t have but may, if global warming gets worse. That mosquito also carries malaria. Let’s hope they stay where they are. Still, getting used to long sleeves and using DEET regularly would be wise.

NEWS FROM THE 30 MILE RIVER WATERSHED News from the 30 Mile River Watershed Association 30MRWA is gearing up for its busiest summer yet! This season will be an exciting one, with an expanded water quality monitoring program, our first-ever intern, and lots of new events (as well as all the old favorites). Read on to find out more about what’s in store this season. Courtesy Boat Inspections Underway We’ve hired five staff for our Courtesy Boat Inspection (CBI) program this summer. Look for our CBIs at the Parker Pond and Flying Pond boat launches, as well as down on Androscoggin Lake. Although we have paid staff, they aren’t on duty all the time. As such, volunteer CBIs play an important role in educating boaters and protecting our lakes from invasive aquatic plants. If you are interested in volunteering as a CBI this summer, please contact [email protected] Youth Conservation Corps  Our Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) projects are quickly lining up for summer! We already have two booked on Flying Pond and one on Parker Pond, along with seven others throughout the watershed. We still have room to accommodate new requests, so if you are interested in learning more about our YCC program, which helps landowners reduce erosion and make their properties more lake-friendly, visit the YCC page on our website or call 860-4043. Water Quality Monitoring The biggest addition to our programs this season is our newly expanded water quality monitoring program. In addition to coordinating Invasive Plant Patrol (IPP) teams throughout the watershed, we are now the Regional Coordinator for water quality monitoring as well. Both of these programs work in partnership with the Maine Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program (VLMP). The goal for this season is to support the dedicated volunteer monitors of the region, fill in the gaps of missing data collection, and to recruit volunteers for lakes that don't yet have volunteer monitors. Upcoming Summer Events: July 3rd, 6th Annual Classical Meets Pop concert, 7:30 PM in Mt. Vernon, to benefit 30MRWA and the Parker Pond Association. Fireworks to follow. July 8th, Invasive Plant Patrol 101. This free workshop, presented by the Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program, will provide all the basics for new volunteers and a great refresher for experienced ones. For more information, contact [email protected]org. July 12th, Camp Road Maintenance Workshop at the Maine Lakes Resource Center in Belgrade. Details coming soon. July 14th, Loons, Eagles and Osprey on Androscoggin Lake, 5-7:30 PM, presented in partnership with the Kennebec Land Trust and MDIFW. This is a popular boat trip, so register early!

I just finished Annie Barrows’ new novel, The Truth According to Us, about a young woman who joins the Federal Writers Project in the 1930s, moves to a town in West Virginia, and becomes acquainted with the various characters and their own struggles. Much of the story is told from the point of view of a young girl, Willa, who is trying to figure out her family’s past. Now, as Roald Dahl’s character, Matilda, said: “I’m wondering what to read next.” -Mary Anne Libby RECURRING COMMUNITY EVENTS Mill Stream Grange - Every Thursday 10:00 AM - 3 PM -Games Galore - cribbage, dominoes, card and board games, jigsaw puzzles etc. Refreshments and coffee - Lots of fun for all!

TWO GREAT SHOWS IN JUNE AT THE UNION HALL On Saturday, June 11, at 7:00 PM, Kyle Knuppel and Matt Davis will return to the Union Hall for the third time with the American Songbook Continues. For this performance, they will be joined by friend, Peter Gaudioso, a vocalist, composer and arranger who has worked with Kyle and Matt since the late 90’s. This show is always very popular. Get tickets early. Next, a special treat for blues fans happens on Friday, June 24, 2016 at 7:00 PM at the hall. "Poor Howard" Stith and Mike “Bullfrog” Rogers will take the stage. Poor Howard has been performing 12string barrelhouse blues for over forty years. Over the years, Poor Howard has performed across the U.S., Europe and Japan, entertaining audiences in coffeehouses, bars and at festivals with his dazzling guitar, heartfelt voice, and seemingly

endless supply of anecdotes, puns and shaggy dog stories. Mike "Bullfrog" Rogers has been a professional musician most of his life. Heavily influenced by the great Sonny Terry, Bullfrog has his own blend of Country and Blues harp that translates to both electric and acoustic styles.
