Iowa All-Academy Ball December 29, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad and Iowa's First Lady, Christine Branstad are opening the doors to To'- race Hill to welcome b- wans who have graduatt from, or are currently at- tending one of the five United States Service Academies. A precursor to the an- nual Iowa All-Academy Ball, the Governor's Re- ception is an opportunity for current and past cadets and midshipmen to be rec- ognized by Governor Branstad and the state of Iowa. "These men and women have worked in- credibly hard for our country," explains Gover- nor Branstad. "We could not be more grateful tto these Iowans, who bring an enormous amount of pride to the state," he adds. The event typically boasts around 50 cadets and midshipmen, plus their families, however this year, event organizers predict a record-breaking year. "Iowans are among the most dedicated and hard-working folks in the country, so it is no surprise that so many young men and women from our state have been accepted to thhe United States Service Academies and have sub- sequently gone on to very successful careers in the military," says Governor Branstad. The reception will be held from 2 to 4 p.m. and will include snacks, bever- ages and a meet-and-greet with Governor Bransta.d. Following the Governor's Reception, the Iowa All- Academy Ball will be held at 6:30 pm at the Sheraton Hotel in West Des Moines.

It's Not Too Late to Get a Flu Vaccination As flu season swings into full gear, producers and those who work with pigs are reminded that it's not too late to get a sea- sonal flu vaccination. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach swine vet- erinarian James McKean said the vaccination helps protect both people and animals. "Seasonal influenza is making an early appear- ance in the United States this year, so getting vacci- nated soon is vital," McKean said. "Make sure you and your employees are vaccinated." In addition to getting vaccinated, the use of good ventilation and hygiene practices can help reduce transmission of flu and other viruses on the farm. McKean, who is also Asso- ciate Director of the Iowa Pork Industry Center at Iowa State, stated that people who are shedding the virus can transmit the virus to animals, so poli- cies to keep acutely in- fected humans apart from pigs should be considered. People can remain conta- gious for up to a week af- ter being sick, making it imperative for everyone over the age of six months to receive an annual flu vaccination. General flu-related in- formation is available on the Center for Diseas Control website at www. cdc.gov/flu and the Pork Checkoff website at www. pork.org/flu. Clinophobia is the fear of beds.
