EMERALD ASH BORER IS HERE - WHAT NOW?


With the recent confirmation by the State of Nebraska Department of Agriculture of the presence of the Emerald Ash Borer in Omaha as well as a second confirmation in Cass County (Greenwood)...Wahoo property owners are strongly encouraged to become well-informed about this invasive pest and the tremendous impact it is expected to have on the City of Wahoo's community forestry.

A recent survey of Wahoo's 'public' trees which includes trees on public property and in the street right-of-way, indicates that ash species comprise the largest single species of trees on public space in our community...nearly 325 trees!  Also keep in mind, this does not include the dozens of ash trees on private property.  Clearly, EAB will have a tremendous impact on Wahoo and our tree canopy.  Now is the time to learn as much as possible about EAB and it's impact so that you can make appropriate decisions regarding your ash trees.

Scroll down to the bottom of this page to find pertinent EAB information and links as well information about the Wahoo Community Forestry program.  Please take the time to review and become an informed property owner.

"Fit Bits"...by April Kassebaum, Certified Personal Trainer
A periodic feature offering timely fitness advice relevant to your Civic Center workout experience.



Looking for a thrilling and challenging way to ignite your "Core 44" muscles?

Try using the Civic Center's "Skittles" (Fitness Balls) located in the weight room to improve your core's stability,
balance, posture, and strength!  The specific exercises shown below are just a sampling of the many fitness ball
exercises available to help you improve your overall health and fitness.  Contact April Kassebaum for more details.

Before you get started, here's a few training tips when using fitness balls:


1)  Pick and choose the size of fitness ball that accompanies your height and more importantly...feels safest.  All of the fitness balls at the Civic Center are labeled with the recommended user height...see photo left (top).

2)  Always perform fitness ball exercises by a wall.

3)  Perform fitness ball exercises after doing 10-45 minutes of cardio.

4)  Never do a core workout on an empty stomach.  Drink at least 20 oz. of water before your core workout.

5)  Perform these exercises with 1-3 sets of 30 repetitions.

6)  Do a 30-second spine stretch between sets...see photo left (bottom).
