Car accidents can be devastating. They can be made up of mangled metal, calls to the police and hospital, injuries, blood and maybe even death. A common cause of accidents is drunk drivers. For some Central Illinois high schoolers, they are getting more than just words, photos, and lectures from their teacher about drinking and driving. They are witnessing the dangers firsthand.

Every year since 1994 the America Red Cross Central Illinois Chapter has teamed with the Illinois Department of Transportation and area high schools to put together an event called Prom Night Crashes.

It is a reenactment featuring real life high school students acting out a prom night drunk driving accident. The experience can be intense for those watching and those involved. Andriana Sphmidgall, a Dee-Mack High School junior who played a dead body in the reenactment, found it difficult to even listen to the event.

FVPD, volunteers help in efforts in recovery of bluebird populations 

We are all bird-watchers in some way. Even if you don’t carry a field guide and binoculars, you can’t help but notice the graceful, winged creatures that swirl around us.

And, if you’ve ever witnessed an Eastern Bluebird, it was certainly a memorable sighting – a brilliant flash of blue, contrasted by bright, glowing orange – much like the warm glow of the sun set against the cool, blue sky.
