MICHIGAN CITY | May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month. In collaboration with the La Porte County Health Department, La Porte County Public Library will show the documentary "Under Our Skin" on Monday, May 12th at 6pm in the Large Meeting Room at the Main Library location.
VALPARAISO | The Porter County Health Department is cautioning area residents to protect themselves from ticks as they spend time outside this summer.
The prime season for tick bites is underway, and people in the region have the highest odds in the state of becoming a meal and contracting the illness Lyme disease.
OGDEN DUNES | Managing Ogden Dunes' deer population continues to be a divisive issue locally.
Ann Spence, 49, shows off the hat she wears to keep ticks off her hair at her home in Normal, Ill.
Ann Spence enjoys a walk outside her home in Normal, Ill., with the help of trekking poles that help her keep her balance. After a lengthy bout with Lyme disease following a 2003 infection, Spence has returned to work and resumed some of her outdoor activities.
For more than a dozen years communities have wrangled with what to do with the white-tailed deer.

As Johnnie Cochrane, the late attorney of O.J. Simpson trial fame, might say: "If the deer have ticks, you must kill them quick."
In small lakefront communities along the Lake Michigan shoreline, the beauty of nature is a prime selling point. But residents' health must be a bigger concern than the welfare of wild animals.
When it comes to bloodsucking pests, the deer tick is a lot smaller than your average Wall Street banker, and it doesn't want a government bailout.
Facing an outbreak of Lyme disease, the Ogden Dunes Town Council decided Nov. 7 to avail itself of a full menu of options to gain control of the situation -- including the right to have trained marksmen use firearms in a secluded park for the purpose of culling its large deer population.
OGDEN DUNES | An effort to cull about 40 deer from this community could begin as early as Nov. 23.
It's tough to figure out if Ogden Dunes residents are in greater danger from Lyme disease or high-velocity lead poisoning.
OGDEN DUNES | A group of residents has filed a petition to review the town's deer control permit.
OGDEN DUNES | Town officials could authorize a hunt to kill up to 40 deer roaming the lakefront community.
