Updates for our Community

Good Morning Neighbor:

Earth Day was a great success and I am including a link to some of the pictures taken that day.  http://www.eiog.org/ed-photogallery.htm

Also, there is a an upcoming West Fayetteville Bypass meeting and I am including a link for that article and meeting time.  If you live in North Fayette and South Fulton, this is a meeting you will want to attend.  This road will impact Hwy 92, West Bridge,  Rivers Road subdivisions, Lees Mill and Sandy Creek area.  Many in our community will be losing their homes in the very near future.  The county can take their homes without all of the transportation and environmnental permits in place.  And, as you know - if this can happen in your neighbor's backyard it can happen in yours.  http://www.thecitizen.com/~citizen0/node/36341

And lastly, I subscribe to FDA updates and since this is about the Swine Flu - I felt you all should be updated as well.

FDA Authorizes Emergency Use of Influenza Medicines, Diagnostic Test in Response to Swine Flu Outbreak in Humans
Mon, 27 Apr 2009 18:57:00 -0500

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, in response to requests from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, has issued Emergency Use Authorizations (EUAs) to make available to public health and medical personnel important diagnostic and therapeutic tools to identify and respond to the swine flu virus under certain circumstances. The agency issued these EUAs for the use of certain Relenza and Tamiflu antiviral products, and for the rRT-PCR Swine Flu Panel diagnostic test.

Your neighbor,

South Fulton and Fayette Community Task Force

As Margaret Mead once said:

Never underestimate the power of a few committed people to change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
