The once common disease is now a rarity in United States, but that progress may be threatened by the high incidence of measles elsewhere in the world and insufficient levels of immunizations in some commu- nities. "Measles is highly contagious and is by no means a trivial disease. It can result in hospitalization, pneumonia, en- cephalitis, and death," said Dr. MatthewDavis, Chief Medi- cal Executive with the Michigan Department of Commu- nity Health (MDCH). "We need to achieve and sustain high levels of vaccination in Michigan and across the United States. Vaccination is the best way to prevent measles outbreaks from occurring and to prevent this disease from spreading widely in our communities." According to the CDC, there were 159 cases reported nationally as of Aug. 24, 2013. From 2001-2012, the average number of measles cases reported nationally per year was 60. Michigan reported two of the cases this year, and is currently investigating another. Of the two Michigan cases, both involved infants who were exposed to the disease when they traveled out of the country. They have since recovered. Both of Michigan's cases involved infants younger than 12 months of age. The first of two routine childhoodmeasles vaccine doses is given at 12 months of age, but current recommendations call for infants as young as 6 months who will be traveling outside of the U.S. to be vaccinated against measles. This recommendation means that par- ents can begin protecting their children as early as 6 months of age if they have plans to travel internationally. Nearly all of the 159 cases nationally were "import-asso- ciated," meaning that theywere directly or indirectly linked to a case or an exposure in another country. The majorityof cases, 82 percent, occurred among persons who were not vaccinated, with another 8 percent in persons with an unknown vaccination status. Measles vaccine has been routinelyin use and recommended for children in the U.S. since the 1960s. The CDC report also identified 8 outbreaks among the 159 cases, including one involving 58 cases, the largest outbreak nationally since 1996. "Measles vaccine is highly effective and very safe, as numerous studies have confirmed the vaccine's effective- ness and safety record," continued Dr. Davis. "People who vaccinate themselves and their children are not only pro- tecting the health their families, but also the community and state of Michigan as a whole."

I [HE~ISIONCOUNCIL Wednesday, October 16, 2013 The Montmorency County Tribune Kenneth Edward Kolver, Sr. Kenneth Edward Kolver was born in Romulus, MI on October 18, 1937. He was the son of the late Otto and Lydia (Frommert) Kolver. Kenneth attended Romulus schools. He married Judith Ann Remick in 1958 and from this union came the birth of two children. Kenneth would marry the love of his life, Beverly Ruth Burkey on March 13, 1971. He was an extremely hard worker and supported his family as a Crane Operator for Walbridge Aldinger. He was a proud member of the Operating Engineers for forty-five years. For more than fifteen years, Ken had been sand blasting for Guardian Industries. Ken was a heck of a man and a great person. He was kind and generous, with a great sense of humor. He enjoyed "pulling others chains." Kenneth never seemed to sit still and loved the outdoors. In his down time, Ken could be found tending to his vegetable garden or choppingwood, which he never seemed to have enough of, obsessively. In the past Kenneth had enjoyed farming as well. Ken- neth had a passion for his "Up North" home often trav- eling for four wheeling and tractor tiding. Also, ff there was a rainy day, you can bet he would be at a casino. Kenneth and his sidekick, "Peanut," were constant com- pardons. Kenneth was a lifetime member of the Brest Bay Gun Club in Newport and the Lewiston Moose Lodge. Kenneth Edward Kolver Sr., age 75 of Newport, passed away at his Lewiston home on Thursday, October 3, 2013. In addition to his parents his passing was preceded by a brother, Wesley Kolver.
