Do You Still Text & Drive?

   From the first of the 2011 till February 7th a total of twelve tickets have been issued in the Commonwealth of KY for texting while driving. Nine of those 12 were 18 years old or younger. Ten of those tickets were issued to men, while only two were given to women.
   Kentucky’s new law prohibits the following: Reading, writing, and sending email or text messages by all drivers. All cell phone usage is prohibited by drivers under the age of 18, regardless of license type. There are exceptions for emergencies, and for GPS use that does not involve data entry.
   Warnings were given until January 1, 2011, after that date a first offense fine in the amount of $25 and $50 for subsequent offenses. For drivers under the age of 18 on restricted licenses, mandatory 180-day waiting period from the time of offense before graduating to the next license level. This applies from the laws effective date. Drivers 18 and over are allowed to read, select, and enter phone numbers or names in order to make a call. All drivers are allowed to use GPS features, and drivers 18 and over are allowed to enter data for GPS purposes at all times.

The video below is a powerful reminder of what texting and driving can do.

Valentines and the Lonely Heart

Howard Baker, RN BSN
Howard Baker, RN BSN

February is national heart month and with an abundance of good and important heart topics to discuss, it wasn’t easy to pick one to spotlight. Valentine’s Day is usually surrounded by commercial images of romance and little cherubs with their bow and arrows spreading love. I believe cupid’s real message to us is to take it easy on the bubblies and chocolates as he seems to have overindulged in the spirit of love. Cupid may actually be the first poster child for childhood obesity—but that’s another story.
When our preconceived expectations are fueled by commercials and the views of social norms there are Continue reading Valentines and the Lonely Heart

Beware of the Dangers from Alternative Heating Sources

EMA/CSEPP

 

   Richmond, Ky. (January 10, 2011) The Madison County Emergency Management Agency/CSEP Program reminds you that alternative power sources such as generators and kerosene heaters are commonly used during electrical power outages. Improper usage of these devices can cause carbon monoxide to build up in homes or garages, resulting in sudden illness and death.
   Seek medical attention if you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning and are experiencing symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. Early symptoms include headache, fatigue, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, chest pain and confusion. Individuals who are sleeping or who have been drinking alcohol may die from carbon monoxide poisoning before ever experiencing symptoms.

Safety Steps to Take When Using Portable Generators
• Properly follow manufacturer’s instructions carefully for Continue reading Beware of the Dangers from Alternative Heating Sources

What About That New Year’s Resolution?

Howard Baker, RN BSN
Howard Baker, RN BSN

   The holiday season brings excitement, cheer, and joy to me and my family as we kick off the holiday season with Thanksgiving. The season seems to go full steam ahead with endless comfort foods, family gatherings, and social commitments that last about forty days until we bring it to a close by ringing in the New Year. Most of us kick off the holiday celebrations by overindulging with all the things that bring us joy like our favorite foods, entertainment, and shopping. Holidays can leave us feeling sluggish, depressed, as we bring a close to the season. During the holidays we usually pack on a few extra pounds, expands our waist lines, and about the time we think we can get a little rest—we jump back into life as we try to catch up on job, school, and family as fatigue settles in.
   As many of us are running out of holiday cheer and the realities of Continue reading What About That New Year’s Resolution?
