Blackberries are ready to eat when ragweed blossoms. And the season’s second-last wave of wildflowers---- the Joe Pye weed, monkey flower, tall coneflower, clearweed, horseweed, white snakeroot, jumpseed, prickly mallow, virgin's bower, white boneset, field thistle and Japanese knotweed -- come into bloom in the open fields and along the fence rows.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Federal officials say that one person has died from salmonella poisoning that appears to be linked to eating ground turkey.
Seventy-six people in 26 states have been made sick from the same strain of the disease. Ohio and Michigan have had the most illnesses, with 10 cases each.
The salmonella strain is resistant to many commonly prescribed antibiotics. The illnesses date back to March, but there has not yet been a recall of turkey.
The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said yesterday that cultures of ground turkey from four retail locations between March 7th and June 27th showed salmonella contamination. The agency did not name the retailers or the manufacturers.
CINCINNATI - Cincinnati has a shot of breaking a temperature record that has stood for 110 years. Yesterday was the city's 15th straight day of temperatures climbing to at least 90 degrees. The record is 17 consecutive days. The record will fall Wednesday if the hot spell continues.
DAYTON, OH - Heat is going to extremes again in southwest Ohio, a week after the region saw one of its warmest and longest hot spells in years.
The National Weather has issued an excessive heat watch for the counties that include Cincinnati and Dayton, and has posted a heat advisory for surrounding counties. Humidity will also be a big factor today.
The weather service office in Wilmington said earlier this week that the eight days that ended Sunday were Dayton's warmest, on average, since 1940. It was Cincinnati's hottest eight-day stretch since 2007.
