Prayers appreciated

This young woman provided day care for our daughter for about a year. Very very nice young lady. I am sure any thoughts and prayers for her and her family would be greatly appreciated.

A 25-year-old Fargo woman died Wednesday of bacterial meningitis, and authorities Thursday were notifying people who had contact with her to take antibiotics as a precaution, including the youths who attend the child-care center where she worked.

The woman – identified as Erin Mae Bye by Gilbertson Funeral Home of Devils Lake, N.D. – went to the emergency room at Fargo’s Innovis Health on Wednesday complaining of a rash, vomiting and a high fever, Fargo Cass Public Health officials said.

Treatment with antibiotics was attempted, but she died a short while later of an overwhelming illness, said Roberto Patron, a specialist in infectious disease at Innovis.

Patron said the situation is cause for concern but not panic, stating it is rare for people who carry the bacteria to become ill and even rarer for people to die from the disease.

Health officials have notified Here We Grow Child Care Center in Fargo of Bye’s death and are advising employees and parents to contact their doctors to obtain antibiotics.

Nancy Bangsund, director of the center, said letters are going out to the approximately 150 families served by the center and parents were being notified in person when they show up at the center.

Bangsund said she believed all of the families will have been notified by this morning.

Health officials said Bye went camping with a group of about half a dozen people during last weekend’s WE Fest in Detroit Lakes, Minn.

Those who came into close contact with Bye are being warned to take antibiotics as a precaution, said Dr. John Baird, health officer with Fargo Cass County Public Health.

Officials said the bacteria are typically spread through contact with nose or throat secretions, such as sharing a drinking glass or kissing a person who carries the contagion.

North Dakota State Epidemiologist Kirby Kruger said cases of meningococcal meningitis are rare in the state, with his office seeing between one and eight cases a year.

Officials said they don’t know how or when Bye contracted the disease.

She started showing symptoms a few days before her death, Baird said.

In many cases, symptoms begin to show up one to 10 days after exposure, officials said. In addition to the symptoms Bye displayed when she went to the emergency room, signs of meningitis can include a sore neck, leading to confusion, and in extreme cases seizures.

Baird said anyone concerned about whether they have been exposed to the disease should contact their physician.

There will be a memorial service for Bye at 2 p.m. Saturday at the home of her parents – Bob and Joyce Bye –in rural Devils Lake.

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?
