    a chick died around here from the same thing several months back. nothing you can do i suppose (freak accident?); simple dip in the ravr. it was a young chick, maybe high school or younger. sad story but i didn't see any steps proposed how to avoid that bacteria

    yes this stuff happens. The town covering it up is a bigger issue to me. Instead of doing the hard work to clean up the town, they just suppress bad news.

    "Clean the town"??? And how, pray tell, does one "clean the town" of commensal bacteria?? i.e....strep, staph, etc,?? btw...commensal bacteria are part of your normal bacteria that live on you and within you.....
    Aerial spray?? Helicopters loaded with dis-infectant, napalm? Agent orange??
    Just curious......

    speaking in a metaphor. This is a symptom of a larger issue in OC where the town is on a downward spiral. Rising violent crime and out of control petty crime. The town prefers do gloss over these with cheesy marketing and avoidance/suppression of bad press.

    agree with Barry here, not an easy fix. when zika was all over the news, they did aerial sprays to prevent mosquito hatchings. mission accomplished sorta- no zika started here. bad news - spray killed a buncha bees. ppls love their honey - i like mine on a bagel. glad they didn't put a buncha chemicals in the ravr or sumtin stupid without thinking it all the way thru. it's not like this bacteria stuff is a simple fix; glad we didn't go overboard with it
