Four cases of mumps have been confirmed this week in Garfield County, and at least 34 more suspected cases are under investigation after students in two Enid Public Schools exhibited symptoms of the disease. Those currently affected range in age from less than one-year old to 41 years of age, with the majority of cases being found in middle school and high school students. State and local public health officials are working closely with schools and healthcare providers to rapidly identify suspected cases and exclude affected persons from childcare centers, schools or workplaces during the timeframe they are able to transmit mumps to other persons.

I love animated series. I believe that animation is a fantastic story telling tool that allows the imagination to run wild without the need to worry about budgets and what is in the realm of real physics for scenes. Animation runs in all shapes and sizes with some targeting older audiences, others children. You wouldn’t place South Park with Tom and Jerry just because they’re animated, just like you probably wouldn’t put Alf and Alien in the same category just because they both involve an alien and shenanigans with a cat.
