LOCUST, N.C. — During the month of November, the team at City Wide Exterminating worked together to raise just over $1,700 for Team Red White & Blue.They raised money through raffling off a Blackstone Griddle prize pack, selling special-edition apparel, and donating the amount of Veteran’s discounts they give on all new services.
 Team Red White & Blue serves as a solution to isolation and health challenges veterans and service members may face as they transition out of the military. They provide local, consistent, and inclusive opportunities for veterans and the community to connect through physical and social activity within local chapters. Team Red White & Blue has an ongoing need for support, so the City Wide team decided to commit their community focus to raise awareness and funds for this great cause. In addition to fundraising, City Wide Exterminating also matched $500 of all funds raised.
“Giving back has become an important part of who we are here at City Wide. Our team chooses the organizations that matter to them each year, and we incorporate that into our City Wide Cares mission,” president Ashley Morrison says. “Team Red White & Blue was first brought to our attention by Jason Keough, an Army veteran and five-year team member here who is actively involved with the organization. We were all very excited to be able to support Jason and this great program.”
The Charlotte chapter of Team Red White & Blue was presented with a check on December 21. To learn more about them, visit their website at https://www.teamrwb.org.
 
 
Organizers soon anticipate a return to in-person learning.
DAVIS, Calif. – The tenth West Coast Rodent Academy took place virtually in November. It marked the third time the academy was hosted online, with the last in-person event occurring in March 2020.
Niamh Quinn, co-organizer, said the academy’s transition to the online format was slightly stressful. The support and flexibility of trainers and the program support unit at University of California Agriculture and Natural Resources, however, allowed for an “almost flawless transition” from in-person to virtual learning. The online setting also allowed content to be accessible to more people than usual, she added.
In 2021, West Coast Rodent Academy was able to offer multiple scholarships to women in pest management, pest management professionals managing rodents in school environments and to members and associates in Tribes and Nations as far away as Kansas, Quinn said.
The West Coast Rodent Academy shares its successes with others and assists them with the development of their own programs. This year, the academy partnered with Rebecca Maguire, extension coordinator, and the urban IPM and pesticide safety education program at Washington State University, to help assist with the Washington Rodent Academy (WARA). WARA joined on the second day of West Coast Rodent Academy program for a successful multi-state event. 
Academy organizers are excited to return to in-person programming and expect to soon have a full program of both classroom instruction and hands-on activities. The program is slated to take place again on March 16 – 18, 2022, in Irvine, Calif. Registration will open in January.

Here are some bad Christmas jokes you can use to fill up those uncomfortable silences when visiting with family.
What do you call a kid who doesn’t believe in Santa?
A rebel without a Claus.
What do you call an elf who sings?
A wrapper!

Why is Christmas just like your job?
You do all the work and the fat guy with the suit gets all the credit.

Why does Santa Claus go down the chimney on Christmas Eve?
Because it soot’s him
Why are Christmas trees so fond of the past?
Because the present’s beneath them.
What do you call a broke santa? Give up yet?
It’s Saint-NICKEL-LESS
