Of the 314 people who were sick, 246 were adults and 65 were children, while the ages of three were not yet known, the OSDH said. Seventeen people received kidney dialysis treatment for hemolytic uremic syndrome, a potentially fatal condition. The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) said that the last known case-patient fell ill Sep 6 and that it believed the outbreak was over. All the cases have been linked to the Country Cottage restaurant in Locust Grove, Okla., the OSDH said. According to previous reports, most cases occurred in people who ate at the restaurant between Aug 15 and 17. Sep 17, 2008 (CIDRAP News) An outbreak of Escherichia coli O111 infections in Oklahoma seems to have run its course after sickening 314 people, putting 72 in hospitals, and killing one, Oklahoma officials announced yesterday. See also: Investigators have interviewed 1,843 people in connection with the outbreak, the OSDH said, but have not yet identified a specific food vehicle in the outbreak. “Health investigators are reviewing results of interviews with persons who ate at the Country Cottage to determine the possible association of illness to specific food items. This analysis could take several weeks,” the OSDH said. E coli O111 is a fairly unusual strain, far less common than O157:H7, the type identified in most E coli outbreaks, but it causes a similar illness. Oklahoma officials believe the cases there represent the largest O111 outbreak reported in the United States to date. Sep 16 OSDH update Last week a state official said investigators were considering the possibility that the restaurant had an infected employee who handled many different foods, since the investigation hadn’t pointed to any specific foods.

Rescue MissionA graphic artist by trade, Katharine Koehler has always had a “passion for junk.” Her Middletown house and those of friends’ are filled with furniture, knickknacks and assorted items that she has rescued and refurbished.She admits that one of her favorite lines is: “Why are you getting rid of that?”Koehler wanted to turn this obscure talent into a way to help people who may not have the extra money to decorate their homes.“Then Sandy came along and I knew this is where I can help. This is what I feel passionate about,” she said.Koehler recruited friends with decorating, artistic and even garage-sale shopping skills, and started a blog and the arduous paperwork to set up a nonprofit. She then began collecting furniture, odds and ends and called for donations.Although not specifically intended to be a Sandy-relief organization, with 85 percent of Union Beach affected by the storm, Koehler said it made sense to start there. She created Room in Our Hearts to help people in crisis. “This is where our focus is right now.”With a motto: “I can fix that,” Koehler and her volunteers have turned discarded items into treasured pieces.Along with the revamped items, Room in Our Hearts has received generous donations of new items from individuals, corporate sponsors and local businesses. Value City Furniture in Middletown has donated floor models and slightly dinged furniture, and Middletown’s Carpet Value Outlet provided free carpeting for each family’s newly decorated room.“I love to be creative but, it’s good to mix the new with the old,” said Koehler, who stressed the importance of recycling and reusing items and not adding to landfills.When Kathryn Rodgers agreed to be the first recipient of a Room in Our Hearts room redo, she didn’t know what to expect.“Katharine (Koehler) came to my house and we were under construction,” Rodgers said. “We were sitting on buckets while we were spackling. I couldn’t even fathom what could be done with that room.”But the result, she said, was remarkable. Theresa Carbone, the room’s project manager, Koehler and the volunteers created a beautiful space.“Their vision came from a construction site,” Rodgers said. “And now the room is absolutely gorgeous … And they are an amazing group of people.”The family could not move back home until the kitchen and bathroom were functioning and Room in Our Hearts finished the living room at the same time. So after five months, Tyler and family moved back home the day of the “big reveal.”From the terra-cotta bench and the play area designed for Tyler to the simple white coat rack that greets visitors in the entryway, Rodgers said she’s thrilled.“I love it all,” she said. “There’s lots of organization and storage and complementary colors.”There’s still so much to do, inside and outside the home, but the family is reinvigorated by the new living room.“To have at least one finished room gives us this boost,” said Rodgers. “We can push forward to finish our home.”For information or to donate furniture and décor items, visit http://roominourhearts.org/. By Judy O’Gorman AlvarezGroup Offers Hope and a Room RedoFive-year-old Tyler Blewitt and his family were greeted by friends, well-wishers and dignitaries, as they moved back to their Union Beach home last month. The family had fled after Super Storm Sandy roared through their house in late October.Five-year-old Tyler Blewitt, his dad Jay Blewitt and mom Kathryn Rodgers of Union Beach smile in their newly refurbished living room supplied by Room in Our Hearts.Although Tyler’s dad and older siblings worked hard to get their house fit to live in again, the family was overwhelmed and grateful to find a crisp, new, warmly decorated living room, with handsome furniture and a brightly organized play area complete with toys and books to cheer a 5-year-old boy.“The room looks like it belongs in a magazine,” said Kathryn Rodgers, Tyler’s mom.Thanks to some big-hearted and creative volunteers from Room in Our Hearts, a nonprofit organization that creatively and sustainably redesigns a room in the home of people affected by disaster, Tyler and his family had a brand new living room.Each room redesigned by Room in Our Hearts includes furniture, artwork, home décor and other artifacts from recycled or refashioned items. Volunteer decorators, artists and craftspeople create a space – mixing the old with the new – to bring warmth, comfort and a sense of normalcy to a family who has experienced loss and disruption in their lives.Tyler, a pre-kindergartner, was born prematurely with supraventrical tachycardia (SVT), a heart condition that causes the heart to beat abnormally fast. Despite a tough start in life, he has been living without medication for the last few years. When Super Storm Sandy hit Union Beach, the youngster had just celebrated his birthday. The family was forced to evacuate, leaving everything – including Tyler’s birthday presents. When the storm surged through their house, it destroyed the contents of the family’s first floor.Tyler Blewitt, 5, jumps right into his newly designed play area.The stress pushed Tyler into an SVT episode a few days later and he was rushed to the emergency room. Afterward, he wound up in Saint Peter’s University Hospital’s CHOP – Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia – pediatric cardiology unit.Since then, the family has focused on getting Tyler well – he is doing better now on medication – and cleaning out and repairing their home. Tyler’s dad has spent almost every day since the storm repairing the home in preparation for the family’s return.That meant the family was a perfect candidate for a Room in Our Hearts renovation.
By M. J. Alvarez |You don’t need any special equipment to enjoy an escape from the heat of the sun during summer. A pair of running shoes will be enough to help you enjoy the canopy-covered trails of our area. Here are just a few trails Monmouth County Park System offers.Hartshorne Woods contains trails that provide a more vigorous workout. The Grand Tour Trail running through the Monmouth Hills when combined with the contiguous Rocky Point Trail provides a challenging 5.4-mile hike with a number of ups and downs in a remote part of the park. The Rocky Point Trail will reward hikers with numerous elevated views of the Shrewsbury River and Sea Bright. The Cuesta Ridge and Laurel Ridge trails provide easier walks. Hartshorne trails are multiuse trails. Hikers should expect to share them with mountain bikers.The Pond Walk is a half-mile wooded walk in Holmdel Park. Photo courtesy MCPSHolmdel Park offers a number of trails for both casual walkers and serious runners. The Cross Country Trail is a 3.1-mile trail that is especially suited for runners and includes a challenging uphill stretch known locally as “The Bowl.” This trail is also the site of many high school cross-country races. For a more balanced workout, try the 0.8-mile Fitness Trail, a loop trail that includes exercise stations. Families can enjoy the 0.4-mile Pond Walk trail around the lower pond and Beech Glen an approximately half-mile wooded walk.The southern section of Holmdel Park, also known as the Ramanessin section, includes three trails of moderate difficulty – the Ramanessin Trail which runs along the Ramanessin Brook, the Steeplechase trail and the Homestead Trail and Fern Path. These trails cross less developed parts of the park through fields and wooded areas and are little used.Huber Woods in Rumson provides a number of moderate trails through wooded fields and mountain laurel valleys. Valley View, Claypit Run and Meadow Ramble are all moderate wooded trails. The Many Log Run Trail located in the northwest section of the park off of the Meadow Ramble Trail is a challenging 1.2 mile trail with a number of sharp hills to get your heart pumping. As with Hartshorne Woods, all of the Huber woods trails are multiuse trails so expect to share them with mountain bikers.Manasquan Reservoir in Howell contains the Perimeter Trail, a 5.1-mile flat, dirt trail popular with joggers, walkers and bikers, looping around the entire perimeter of the reservoir and crossing a number of wetland areas. This trail will give the walker a sense of the breadth of the reservoir and may even reward with a view of the bald eagles nest which is alleged to exist near the northwest corner of the reservoir. A shorter 1.1-mile scenic nature trail around the Environmental Center is suitable for families with young children.Thompson Park, located in the Lincroft section of Middletown, contains both paved trails for bikers and walkers, dirt trails traversing fields and wooded areas and a track loop around a rugby pitch. The Reservoir Loop is the longest trail in the park at 4.8 miles and runs along Marlu Luke located in the northwest section of the park and loops around the Swimming River Reservoir. The Paved Trail is a popular trail for walkers, runners and bikers that runs around the perimeter of the park along Longbridge Road, Cross Road and Route 520.Experienced hikers and trail runners know that tick season is in full swing in the Two River area. When venturing into any wooded area, stay on the maintained trails, wear loose clothing with long sleeves and pants and inspect arms and legs after a walk in the woods. Be especially careful inspecting children and pets for ticks. Sunscreen and a bottle of water in a small backpack will also make your day more enjoyable.And hit the trails on June 3 – National Trails Day.This article was first published Summer Kickoff section in the May 25-June 1, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.
