News Briefs – June 21, 2013

BWBAHC clinics, services closure

All clinics and services for Raymond W. Bliss Army Health Center will be closed on Thursday from 1 – 5 p.m. to conduct mandatory training. Clinics and services will resume normal business hours on Friday.

Bear activity noted on post

Bears are out and actively searching for food and water. This is the hottest, driest time of the year, and the drought is making it even harder on wildlife.

Do not feed wildlife anywhere, or leave human or pet food outside. All refuse should be kept in a hard-sided roofed area, such as a garage. Take trash cans outside and to the curb on the scheduled morning for trash pick-up to help keep wildlife away from your house or block, advises Sheridan Stone, Fort Huachuca wildlife biologist.

Waiting until morning also may keep people from picking up scattered trash from nighttime animal visits when animals are out and active.

The Cochise County Highway/Floodplain Department is reconstructing and chipsealing Moson Road from State Route 90 to Milepost 7 from 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Work should end on or about July 3, weather conditions permitting.
