Eureka Casino Resort is proud to continue the tradition of “Rockets Over the Red Mesa” on Monday, July 4.

Steve Lippia has been delighting sold-out Symphony audiences across North America and is considered the “Singers Singer”.

“The Eureka Community Initiative is thrilled to bring a Sinatra flare to this year’s festivities. Fireworks, Sinatra, and an orchestra the size of the Nevada Pops is the perfect combination to celebrate America’s independence. We feel this will be our best year yet.” said Greg Lee, President of Eureka Casino.

 

This free event will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a community vendor village and DJ. The celebration continues with a live performance from the Nevada POPS Orchestra at 8:00 p.m., followed by fireworks at 9:00 p.m. The orchestra will accompany the fireworks show to celebrate Independence Day in true American style. Eureka’s own Town Square will be hosting a Great American Backyard BBQ themed Buffet from 4 – 7 p.m. featuring BBQ Ribs, BBQ Chicken, Hamburgers, Sweet Corn on the cob and more. This is a family friendly event and everyone is invited to attend. Guests are encouraged to bring their own chairs to the viewing area, which will be set up behind the Eureka Casino Resort.

Defining Heat Disorders and Warning Signs

posted Jun 5, 2016, 1:08 PM by Joy Eastwood   [ updated Jun 5, 2016, 1:08 PM ]


There is several ways in which heat can affect a worker. Some of the effects of heat on the body are more serious than others; thus, it is essential to know the signs and symptoms of the various heat-related disorders, starting with the most severe. Please be aware of the symptoms and stay hydrated at all times!  Heat stroke is the most serious health problem for all in hot environments, is caused by the failure of the body internal mechanism to regulate its core temperature. Sweating stops and the body can no longer rid itself of excess heat. Signs of heat stroke include:

·         Mental confusion, delirium. loss of consciousness, convulsions or coma

·         A body temperature of 106 degree Farenheight or higher

·         Hot dry skin which may be red, blotted or bluish

·         Throwing up, Dizziness & Stomach Cramps.  

Victims of Heat Stoke will die unless treated promptly. While medical help should be called, the victim must be removed immediately to a cool area and his or her clothing soaked with a cool water. He or she should be fanned vigorously to increase cooling. Prompt first aid can prevent permanent injury to the brain and other vital organs.

Heat exhaustion develops as a result of loss of fluid through sweating when a worker has failed to drink enough fluids. The worker with heat exhaustion still sweats, but experiences extreme weakness or fatigue, giddiness, nausea, or headache. The skin is clammy and moist, the complexion pale or flushed, and the body temperature normal or slightly higher. Treatment is usually simple: the victim should rest in a cool place and drink plenty of an electrolyte drink or water.

Heat cramps frequently occur in the extremities. They abruptly appear as a sudden charlie horse and limit movement of the involved arm or leg. Heat cramps may be painful, but spontaneously resolve over time. Heat cramps are caused by salt losses with sweating and are treated with electrolyte-balanced fluids, such as Gatorade, PowerAde and other electrolyte drinks.

Heat syncope occurs when a worker suddenly faints after standing for a long period. This fainting results from blood pooling in the legs, causing less blood to be delivered to the brain. Heat syncope may be treated by lying down or prevented by moving around while working.

Heat rash, also known as prickly heat, may occur in hot and humid environments where sweat is not easily removed from the surface of the skin by evaporation. When extensive or complicated by infection, heat rash can be so uncomfortable that it inhibits sleep and impedes a workers performance or even results in temporary total disability. It can be prevented by resting in a cool place and allowing the skin to dry.

I-15 paving update: Motorists traveling north of Mesquite should be prepared for delays of up to an hour through June 10

posted Jun 2, 2016, 3:31 PM by Joy Eastwood   [ updated Jun 2, 2016, 5:23 PM by Tyson Kennedy ]


Crews are on schedule to complete a majority of a 13-mile paving project along Interstate 15, from just north of Mesquite to the Nevada state line, by the end of next week. This work will require construction delays of up to an hour Friday(June 3) and Monday (June 6) through Friday (June 10),  from 5 a.m. to 6 p.m. One travel lane will remain open overnight in each direction, according to the Arizona Department of Transportation.

Paving will continue along the shoulders, off the main roadway, June 13 through June 17. Motorists should expect delays of up to 15 minutes for this work. The final lane striping will take place in mid- July.

With limited alternate routes through this corridor, drivers should plan ahead, allow extra travel time, slow down and drive carefully through the work zone, and be alert for construction equipment and personnel.

The $10.4 million project includes paving a 13-mile stretch of roadway (mileposts 0 to 13), replacing a bridge barrier, sealing the existing bridge deck and installing new guardrail.

To stay up to date with the latest highway conditions around the state, visit the ADOT Traveler Information Center ataz511.gov or call 511; outside of Arizona dial 1.888.411.ROAD (7623).
