THS blood drive today
April 1, at Hitchcock's

Information from LifeSouth Community Blood Centers
Published March 28, 2020 at 1010 a.m.
Updated April 1, 2020 at 8:10 a.m.
     GAINESVILLE --
Like blood centers across the country, LifeSouth Community Blood Centers is experiencing critical blood shortages in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak.
     This sudden drop in blood donations can be attributed, in part, to the cancellation of high school blood drives following the closure of Florida schools. High school donors make up a significant portion of our community’s blood supply, and their absence has made an immediate and severe impact on LifeSouth’s ability to collect blood.
     LifeSouth Community Blood Centers invites all healthy Trenton High School students to keep up their lifesaving habit and give blood at the Trenton Community Blood Drive on April 1.
     Look for the bloodmobile at Hitchcock’s between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Donating at this blood drive will count toward students’ Cords of Courage. Donors also will receive community service hours and a $10 gift card. Students are encouraged to double the lives saved by bringing a friend to donate. Minors must present a signed permission form which can be accessed at lifesouth.org’s donor information page.   
     Amid concerns about the safety of donating blood, LifeSouth assures the public that donating blood is safe and poses no risk of transmission for the donor or the recipient. Respiratory viruses like COVID-19 are not transmitted through the blood. Exposure to the virus occurs through person-to-person contact when an infected person coughs or sneezes, spraying small droplets that land on people or surfaces. COVID-19 enters the body when someone who has come into contact with these respiratory droplets touches their eyes, nose or mouth.
     According to the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), there have been no reported or suspected cases of transfusion-transmitted COVID-19.
     Blood donors must be at least 17 (16 with parental permission), weigh at least 110 pounds and be in good health.  A photo ID is also required. For more information on donating blood, call toll-free 888-795-2707 or visit http://lifesouth.org/.

Tri-County Community
Resource Center remains open

By Jeff M. Hardison © March 18, 2020 at 2:10 p.m.
     CHIEFLAND --
The Tri-County Community Resource Center will remain open, according to Stacy Merritt, director resources centers for the Partnership for Strong Families (PSF).
     "As we all work diligently to support the community during the existing pandemic," Merritt noted in an email at 9:53 a.m. today (Wednesday, March 18) I wanted to make you aware that PSF Resource Centers will continue to be open to the community with minimal limitations in place, at this time. To help ensure public safety, we will be taking additional precautions to include a brief risk screening for patrons before allowing participation with on-site services, limiting group activities involving more than 10 participants and changing the format of some services, to reduce patron contact with one another. Some of our sites may also have limited hours based upon staffing needs."
     The director requests all referring agencies to encourage patrons to call first (see numbers below), to allow the Resource Centers to screen them over the phone and better determine the ability to meet the individual’s need without requiring them to come to the Resource Center.
     As of this email, the following phone numbers apply:
     Tri-County Community Resource Center, Chiefland, 352-507-4000;
     Library Partnership, Gainesville, 352-334-0160;
     Cone Park Library Resource Center, Gainesville, 352-334-0456; and
     SWAG Family Resource Center, Gainesville, 352-505-6823.
     The current hours for the Tri-County Community Resource Center in Chiefland are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each Monday through Thursday with an hour closure for lunch each day from 12 to 1 p.m.
     Tomorrow (Thursday, March 19), however the Tri-County Community Resource Center will be closed due to a previously planned closure. The days and hours of any of the resource centers may change, too.
     Tri-County Community Resource Center Beverly Goodman asks people to call first, because some matters which normally are cared for on-site can be taken care of now via telephone and Internet. Please remember, after 4 p.m. today (March 19), the center will be closed until 9 a.m. on Monday (March 23).
     The Tri-County Community Resource Center is located at 15 N. Main St. (U.S. Highway 19) in Chiefland. That is just north of Park Avenue on the eastern side of the highway.

     CEDAR KEY –
The 2020 Old Florida Celebration of the Arts in Cedar Key (also known as the Cedar Key Art Fest) is cancelled, according to a March 13 press release from event coordinators.
     In accordance with the recent recommendations of Gov. Ron DeSantis that cities and counties in Florida postpone or cancel any mass gatherings over the next 30 days in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19 in Florida, the Cedar Key Arts Center, in consultation with the City of Cedar Key, decided to cancel the 2020 Old Florida Celebration of the Arts, which had been scheduled for April 4 and 5, Arts Center Committee members Bev Ringenberg, Kathy Sturr, Marie Lewis, Gini Barss, Mary Prescott, Dee Miller, Joan Selby, Sue Rosenthal, Eileen Senecal and Donna Bushnell noted.
     This decision was made after careful consideration of what is for the greater good and best for the community overall, the ladies noted.
     Meanwhile in Cedar Key, local restaurants, motels and shops are open for business as residents and visitors use common sense to help reduce the odds of anyone contracting or spreading COVID-19. Best practices include, washing hands, keeping distance between people, not shaking hands, and covering one's mouth in a proper manner if there is a need to sneeze or cough.
     The leaders at the Cedar Key Arts Center noted that they look forward to hosting the festival next spring – on April 17 and 18, 2021.

Woodpecker Visits
Woodpecker in Levy County Florida
As noted in the Audubon Guide to North American Birds, this Pileated Woodpecker is big, with a flaming crest. It is the largest woodpecker in North America (except the Ivory-bill, which is almost certainly extinct). Excavating deep into rotten wood to get at the nests of carpenter ants, the Pileated leaves characteristic rectangular holes in dead trees.

This particular bird was visiting The Ink Pad in the unrecorded subdivision known as Jemlands in Levy County on Monday (March 9).

Wood Storks Confer
Wood Storks Levy County Florida
A group of Wood Storks (Mycteria americana) are seen conferring late Friday afternoon (March 6) near a lake in the Tri-County Area of Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist counties.

Wood Storks Tri-County Area Florida HardisonInk.com
The conference appeared to stop when they may have noticed a human taking their picture from a distance. With the birds’ and bees’ types of activities almost at the starting gate of spring, the storks may be having a confab for their nine-month after-the-fact delivery duties. While the conference is not likely, and storks only deliver babies in a mythological sense, the real scene here is some of the magnificent wildlife that is found in the Tri-County Area.
