Jane Dixon stopped by the office on Tuesday. She was bringing in photos and write-ups of her granddaughters who graduated recently. See page 4.

Jane was telling me about being bit by a rattlesnake on her heel on the evening of July 26. She had gone outside to call one of the dogs in and felt a sharp pain in her left heel. Her son Menden was visiting and got his mother to the emergency room as quickly as possible. The E.R. staff started her on anti-venom and kept her in the hospital until July 29.

She is still recovering and wanted to remind everyone to watch for snakes when they are out. The snake that bit her was a baby rattlesnake which meant she got a bigger dose of venom. Be careful and ever watchful for snakes, no matter what size.
