National Broadband Map

Last week, the FCC came out with updated broadband coverage map; however, there still may be some discrepancies in the maps. Feedback is being requested to ensure that the maps are accurately portraying the data. If you could take five (5) minutes to click the link below and search your address. If the FCC has the incorrect information about your address or type of dwelling, you can submit a "Location Challenge". If they have incorrect information about the coverage options, you can submit an "Availability Challenge". Obtaining this information is imperative to correcting the faults in the maps, so in the future we can ensure that broadband is being placed in the locations where it is unavailable or underserved.

LUNENBURG COUNTY PARTICIPATING IN ‘OPERATION GREEN LIGHT’ IN SUPPORT OF LOCAL VETERANS

LUNENBURG COUNTY – In advance of the upcoming Veterans Day holiday, Lunenburg County announced that the Courthouse will be illuminated green November 7th through the 13th as part of Operation Green Light, a new national collaborative initiative of the National Association of Counties (NACo) to support military veterans, as well as raise awareness about the unique challenges faced by many veterans and the resources that are available at the county, state, and federal level to assist veterans and their families.

The new national collaborative is spearheaded by the National Association of Counties and the National Association of County Veteran Service Officers, building upon the successful efforts of the New York State Association of Counties and the NYS County Veteran Service Officers’ Association in 2021.

Our veterans and their families deserve recognition for their sacrifices and contributions to our nation and assistance to other nations in need. This is a small gesture to let them know we see them and we appreciate them.

In addition to lighting the Courthouse, residents and businesses are encouraged to participate by simply changing one light bulb in their house to a green bulb. This can be an exterior light that neighbors and passersby see, or an interior light that sparks a conversation with friends.

By shining a green light, we let our veterans know that they are seen, appreciated, and supported. While this event is focused around the week of Veterans Day (November 7th -13th), participants are encouraged to continue shining the light year-round. Residents can share their participation on social media using the hashtag .

“Operation Green Light is a simple way to express our collective appreciation for the public service of our veterans,” said NACo President Denise Winfrey. “We encourage everyone to join us in displaying a green light for our veterans and to also reflect on how we, as a nation and at the county level, assist our military service personal back into civilian life upon completion of their service to our country.”

Visit naco.org/operationgreenlight for more information and links to resources available to veterans.

AVIAN INFLUENZA (HPAI) IN VIRGINIA
Avian influenza has been identified in dead fowl in neighboring localities. Please use caution.

RICHMOND, VA — The Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources (DWR) continues to monitor the presence of highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) this year in wild bird populations. HPAI is caused by infection with an influenza virus. It can cause significant illness and death in domestic poultry. Waterfowl, and some shorebird and sea bird species, often do not show any signs of illness when infected. However, these species can still transmit the virus to other birds that may get sick or die from the infection, including domestic poultry, raptors, wild turkey, quail, and grouse. For wild birds in Virginia this year, HPAI has been detected in seven species of waterfowl and raptors. Vultures have been particularly susceptible to HPAI due to their tendency to feed on carcasses.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) considers the transmission risk of avian influenza from wild birds, backyard birds, and commercial poultry to people to be low (see CDC web link below for more information). However, the public is advised to not pick up or handle dead wild birds. If you need to handle or dispose of bird carcasses, wear rubber gloves and other personal protective equipment such as a mask and eye protection, then bury or incinerate the carcass, or double bag the carcass and dispose of it in a landfill. Then wash your clothes and disinfect your shoes if you will be in contact with any backyard poultry or other birds, so you reduce the risk of spreading the virus. Additional information for migratory bird hunters and wildlife rehabilitators for handling waterfowl can be found at our DWR website (https://dwr.virginia.gov/wildlife/diseases/avian-influenza/).

The public can help monitor this emerging wildlife health issue. Please notify DWR via the Virginia Wildlife Conflict Helpline at 855-571-9003 if you observe one of the following wild bird occurrences:

• Five or more dead vultures, waterfowl, shorebirds, or seabirds found in the same area within five days
• Sick or dead eagles, hawks, owls, or turkey, excluding carcasses found on the road
• Ten or more dead birds in the same area for any other wild bird species
