"Some of the responsibilities of the Maintenance Foreman aside from maintaining the security of the institution, are to make repairs, to include in the areas of plumbing, air conditioning, basic carpentry and welding," said Franco.

Seibert quicky responds to any emergency situation and, has saved the institution money by providing quality service, according to Franco.

"Mark Seibert is an extremely hard worker and willing to learn from others as well as assit any officer when needed," said Franco.

"We are proud of Mr. Seibert for his contributions to the Reeves County DetentionCenter and he is very deserving of this award," he said. "We wish him continued success in his career," he said.

New lice product proves to be safer, more effective

Lice products containing pesticides have been getting a lot of negative press recently. The pesticides are not safe and are proving to be very dangerous. The pesticides cure is much worst than the lice infestation. Many children have become sick from the treatments, which are believed to have led to learning disabilities, physical impairment (such as cancer and blindness) and even death.

And although the pesticide treatment is causing harm to humans, lice are gradually becoming immune to this conventional method of extermination.

A revolutionary, non-toxic and pesticide free enzyme solution has been developed. Enzymes are very effective in eliminating head lice, body lice, scabies and crabs. (The solution actually works on almost all insects).

Enzymes are used in cleaning solutions such as contact lens cleaners and pool supplies. The combination of enzymes, including Protease, Lipase, Cellulase and Amylase, has proven to safely eliminate most insects. These enzymes will not harm humans, animals or the environment.

How the enzymes work is quite amazing and interesting. The enzymes cause the exoskeletons of the bugs to become "unglued" and fall apart. In a way it "digests" the insects. It also loosens the eggs and nits, which the adults have laid. This causes the eggs and nits to fall away easily and not allow the young to hatch.

Lice will not become immune to enzymes. Enzymes are used in the insect's systems to aid in their growing and molting process. Since the enzymes are already in their systems, but not in such a large dose, lice cannot build up a resistance. They would have to become immune to themselves.

The enzymes can be found in Lice Arrest. The enzymes are exclusive and a patent is pending on the use of these enzymes.
