Vehicle accident results in fatality

On April 21, a call came into the Emery County Sheriff's Office about a missing person in the Cedar Mountain area. A deputy responded and searched the area but due to darkness he was limited to main roads. The search resumed Friday morning.

Emery County Sheriff's Office received a call on Friday morning stating that friends of the victim had located the vehicle. Deputies responded and confirmed it was a fatality. The name of the victim is not being released until the family is notified. This appears to be a single vehicle accident, alcohol seems to be a factor and no seat belts were used.

Committee says thanks for Every 15 Minutes program

We would like to send out a huge thank you for all those in the community who helped out with the "Every 15 Minutes" activity on April 7, at Emery High School. This activity took a lot of time, energy, and effort from many committed individuals to make it amazingly effective. Emery County is such a great place to live, and this just proved to us once more how much we love to call Emery County our home.

New AARP driver safety class

AARP and the Castle Dale Senior Center have scheduled the next driver safety class on May 3. The new four hour class will be held at the Senior Center, 160 East 100 North from 1-5 p.m.

Students who have taken the driver safety classes in the past have found the material presented informative and useful in assisting them in their driving. Topics to be addressed include: the importance of vision and the changes that take place as people age, also how reaction time and flexibility is affected as people age, the impact and importance of hearing while driving, and how the older driver may compensate for these changes.

The course, for drivers older than 50, also includes: information on defensive driving techniques, newest traffic laws, how to handle potential problem situations while performing right and left turns, right-of-way laws freeway driving, driving around trucks and buses, and what to do if confronted by aggressive drivers or drivers committing road rage. The proper use of ABS (anti-lock brakes), airbags and safety belts(remember they are safety belts if you use them or seat belts if you sit on them), how to assess one's own and other's driving abilities will also be included. No tests will be given. There is a nominal fee for both AARP members and those not belonging to AARP. Even though the class has been reduced to four hours, those completing the course will still be eligible to receive a discount on the auto insurance premium.

A CarFit program will be taught in conjunction with the driver safety class. This program will be held from 10 a.m.-noon in the Senior Center parking lot. This free interactive and educational program was developed by the American Society of Aging, in collaboration with AAA, AARP and the American Occupational Therapy Association is designed to improve driver safety for the older driver.

There will be an occupational therapist and trained technicians to provide information to ensure the safest fit for older drivers and their personal vehicles. Each participant will be given a 12-point checklist with their own vehicle and give recommended car adjustments, and adaptations that could make their car "fit" better to enhance driver safety. Participants are asked to pre-register for a convenient time slot in order to have as many as possible to complete the two hour session. Lunch to follow.
