Rabies Cases Confirmed in DeSoto Parish

RABIES ! ALERT

DeSoto Parish Animal Services Director Connie Philipp reported that two cases of rabies have been confirmed in the last week in DeSoto Parish. While there were 3 cases reported only 2 of those tested positive for rabies. The locations that the skunks were captured from for testing were in the Keachi/Gloster/Grand Cane areas.

While skunks are the main carriers of rabies in this area, any kind of mammal can carry it. Phillip recommends vaccinating cats, dogs, and horses, adding that the fee is usually around $15.00 to $20.00 for a yearly shot. It is important to vaccinate cats and dogs because rabies symptoms are harder to recognize in them than in other mammals.

Logansport High School’s Kyle Deas Scores 35 on ACT

Many of us have taken the American College Testing or ACT during our senior year of high school, and were happy when we scored in the mid 20’s. Those scores are in the average percentile nationwide, and are nothing to be ashamed of. If the mid 20’s are good scores, what would be an amazing ACT score? It seems that if you score 34 or higher you are in the 99th percentile, and are in the 1% of testers. When you get to a 33 score and above you are in Ivy League and competitive college territory.
