That brings the total number of confirmed and suspect human cases of the virus in the county to 20–most of which have resulted in uncomplicated fever. Most of the reported cases have been in the Delta and North Fork areas, and on Saturday, the town of Hotchkiss sprayed to kill adult mosquitoes. For KVNF and the iSeeChange project, Julia Kumari Drapkin takes a closer look at why mosquitoes and West Nile Virus are thriving in a DROUGHT year and whether community efforts to spray late in the season will pay off.</p><p></p><p></p><p><font size="3">Produced by Julia Kumari Drapkin, the iSeeChange project at KVNF is part of&nbsp;Localore, a nationwide&nbsp;production of AIR&nbsp;designed to accelerate transformation and extend public service media to all Americans. &nbsp;&nbsp;KVNF was selected as&nbsp;one of &nbsp;only 10 Localore stations across the country—learn more at <a href="http://airmediaworks.org" target="_blank">airmediaworks.org</a>.&nbsp;Localore is&nbsp;funded by the Corporation for Public&nbsp;Broadcasting, the Wyncote Foundation, the John T. and Catherine T.
