INDIO, Ca, June 22, 2018: The Coachella Valley Mosquito and Vector Control District has detected more infected mosquitoes with West Nile virus (WNV). Two samples of mosquitoes tested positive yesterday; one sample of mosquitoes was collected from a trap in Indian Wells near Fairway Drive and Cook Street and the other sample was collected from a trap in Palm Desert near Portola Avenue and Shadow Mountain Drive.
These latest detections of virus activity come after the District reported the first West Nile virus activity of the year earlier this week and brings the total number of WNV-positive samples to four for 2018 in the Coachella Valley. In an effort to reduce the number of mosquitoes, interrupt virus transmission, and protect the public from mosquito-borne diseases, District staff will post disease notification signs in the communities located near the two new trap locations, continue intensified mosquito surveillance with an increase in traps and inspections for mosquito breeding sites, carry out larval and adult control as necessary in the surrounding area, and apply barrier treatments around the trap in Palm Desert.
What is EMS? EMS stands for Emergency Medical Services, and is a vital component to healthcare, public health and public safety. The public counts on EMS to help them in their worst, most harrowing moments, yet few understand exactly what medical services EMS provides. EMS saves lives from heart attacks, strokes and drowings; treats injuries due to motor vehicle collisions, shootings, stabbings and other violence; and provides care for the myraid of other illnesses and injuries that occur daily. CAL FIRE/Riverside County Fire Department want to thank all of our EMS Personnel for all they do to help our community this month, this week, today, and everyday.

?Miramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa, Curio Collection by Hilton, located just outside of Palm Springs, has partnered with award-winning sculptor, C.J. Rench, to create the new Miramonte Sculpture Garden.
The collaboration brings nine of Rench’s sculptures to the resort, each carefully situated throughout the garden for guests and visitors to enjoy. The pieces include large-scale abstract designs like "Caught Up II," an 8ft. tall stainless steel sculpture with a red powder coating, as well as pedestrian scale designs like "Poise," one of Rench’s first sculptures of this scope.
The artist was displaying his work at the La Quinta Arts Festival earlier this year, which lead to the eventual collaboration. "I met C.J. at the La Quinta Arts Festival and was immediately taken aback by the sleekness and beauty of his sculptures," said Matthew La Vine, general manager at Miramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa. "I spoke with the artist and we determined our resort would be a good showcase for his work. We invite people to come by and see it."
Rench, a Hood River, OR-based designer specializing in metal sculptures, aims to invite, inspire, and connect people. "As a former sport industry designer, I would travel the world and see public art in all different settings – it was inspiring," said Rench who chose to leave the corporate world in 2005 to start a family. "There was no way I was going to raise my daughter via Skype, so I decided to try something new."
Today his work includes many large-scale commissions for public and personal collectors throughout the United States ranging from small tabletop hand-painted sculptures to monumental public installations.
