VIRGINIA STATE POLICE URGES MOTORISTS TO DRIVE SOBER AND DO THEIR PART ‘TOWARD ZERO DEATHS’ THIS HOLIDAY SEASON

RICHMOND – Over the next week, thousands of Virginians will take to the highway to travel for the holidays. This weekend – Life Saver Weekend – signifies the start of the Christmas travel period and serves as a reminder to motorists to #Drive2SaveLives and celebrate safely so everyone will #ArriveAlive.

Since Dec. 1, 2018, traffic crashes in Virginia have claimed the lives of 23 people, including 15 drivers, two passengers, three pedestrians, two motorcyclists and one bicyclist. Despite a grim start to the month, preliminary reports indicate traffic fatalities are down 3.5 percent to date in 2018 (Jan. 1, 2018 - Nov. 12, 2018) compared to the same period last year, falling from 799 deaths in 2017 to 771 so far this year. 

Last year, 248 individuals were killed in alcohol-related crashes on Virginia highways.* Since Nov. 18, 2018 (Thanksgiving week), Virginia State Police has decorated its virtual “Lifesaving Tree” with 99 stars, each of which represents a DUI arrest and a potential life saved because an impaired driver was taken off the road. A star will be added to the “Lifesaving Tree” for every impaired driving arrest through the end of December, which is National Drunk and Drugged Driving Prevention Month.

“The holidays are a time to celebrate, but if the celebration involves alcohol you need to do it responsibly – hand over the keys, call for a ride or simply stay where you are,” said Col. Gary T. Settle, Virginia State Police Superintendent. “When you choose to drive drunk, you not only put your own life at risk, you risk the lives of others on the road with you. Make the smart, sober choice and help Virginia move toward zero roadway deaths.”

The “Toward Zero Deaths Virginia” website, an in-depth resource for online traffic safety content, was launched in late November and announced in a press release from Governor Ralph S. Northam.

To help prevent traffic deaths and injuries during the Life Saver Weekend, the Virginia State Police will once again be participating in Operation C.A.R.E., an acronym for the Crash Awareness and Reduction Effort. Operation C.A.R.E. is a state-sponsored, national program designed to reduce crashes, fatalities and injuries caused by speeding, impaired driving and failure to use occupant restraints. As a participating agency, state police will increase its visibility and traffic enforcement efforts throughout the Commonwealth beginning Friday, Dec. 14, 2018, at 12:01 a.m. and continuing through midnight, Sunday, Dec. 16, 2018.

During last year’s Life Saver Weekend (Friday, Dec. 15, 2017 – Sunday, Dec. 17, 2018), Virginia State Police troopers:

  • Cited 1,499 speeders
  • Cited 428 reckless drivers
  • Arrested 31 drunken drivers
  • Cited 147 safety belt violations & 49 child restraint violations
  • Investigated 493 traffic crashes (None of which were fatal.)

With additional troopers and other law enforcement working on Virginia’s highways this holiday weekend, Virginia State Police also reminds drivers to comply with Virginia’s “Move Over” law. A life-saving law intended to protect public safety responders and others who have a responsibility to work the roads. Drivers are required to change to another travel lane or, when unable to, to cautiously pass emergency personnel stopped on the side of the road. The law also includes highway maintenance vehicles and tow trucks equipped with flashing amber lights.

National Driver of the Year to Speak at SVCC Truck Driving Graduation Events

Trucking’s National Driver of the Year, David Boyer, is the guest speaker for the next two graduations of the Southside Virginia Community College’s Truck Driver Training School.  Students will complete the program with ceremonies at the Fort Pickett site on December 13 at 9 a.m. and at the South Boston site on December 20 at 9 a.m. 

Boyer, a professional truck driver with ABF Freight and an America’s Road Team Captain, was honored as trucking’s 2018 National Driver of the Year at American Trucking Associations Safety Management Council’s meeting in Long Beach California on November 14, 2018.  He is a 40-year veteran with ABF Freight and has worked for only one other company in his career.  He regularly operates twin trailers over the road between Wytheville, Virginia and Memphis, Tennessee.

Being named for this award recognizes drivers for noteworthy and career-long professional achievements, holding a stellar safety record and maintaining dedication to keeping the roads safe.  As a part of his award, Boyer attended a White House event in October alongside Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao in which she told President Trump about his achievements. 

The SVCC Truck Driver Training School opened in 1996.  There have been approximately 2300 graduates.

VIRGINIA STATE POLICE LAUNCH NEW INSTAGRAM SITE WITH K-9 “NAME REVEAL”

RICHMOND – The Virginia State Police is expanding its digital footprint in the social media environment with the launch of an official Instagram account. The Virginia State Police account at instagram.com/virginia_state_police is now “live” on the photo-sharing app platform and at 11 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 13, 2018, featured as its first post - a sneak preview of the names selected for the Department’s two newest bloodhounds.

The Virginia State Police established itself on YouTube in 2009 and Facebook in 2010. A @VSPPIO Twitter page followed five years later. Today, the state police engages with more than 180,000 Facebook followers, approximately 13,500 Twitter followers and 1,500 YouTube viewers worldwide.

“Adding Instagram to the Virginia State Police social media portfolio enables us to reach a much greater audience with our key traffic safety messaging, crime prevention outreach, investigative alerts and recruitment efforts…and, of course, more photos of our canines,” said Colonel Gary T. Settle, Virginia State Police Superintendent. “We look forward to engaging with the public via Instagram and sharing even more about the state police and our mission in service and safety to others.”

Instagram followers who connect with state police by 11 a.m. Thursday will be the first to find out the winning names for the 11-week-old brother and sister bloodhounds as pictured with Colonel Settle. In mid-November, state police invited the public to send in via Facebook their favorite names for the floppy-eared siblings. The Department’s K9 Training Unit deliberated the more than 3,300 pairs of suggested names and narrowed them down to five for final consideration. Just shy of 1,500 Facebook followers cast their votes and the winning pair of names will be revealed on all three state police social media platforms by noon Thursday.

Big Comeback Leads to Cool Job for Hawkes

Sometimes a big setback leads to an even bigger comeback.  This was the case for Cedric Hawkes whose rebound has landed him in the cool job of teaching at Nottoway Middle School where he impacts lives. 

When his fiancée and mother of his two children passed away and he found himself a single father of two boys, ages five months and 15 months, Hawkes knew some things in his life had to change.  Hawkes had attended Old Dominion University but not finished and was working at Southside Virginia Community College as a restaurant manager for the Farley Experience.  Working in the college environment, he was interested in returning to school and found encouragement from Dr. John Hicks, counselor.

“Working at the café was the perfect scenario,” he said. “It jump-started me back on track, it was a home place with a fun-oriented atmosphere.”

He told the he Longwood College publication The Lancer, “It had been on my mind for a while so one day I took my apron off and went to talk to one of the counselors there (at SVCC).”

After taking some classes at SVCC, he was able to in get into Longwood University through the guaranteed acceptance agreement. He joined the Call Me MISTER program, a national teacher leadership program, where he excelled and was the eldest MISTER so he was role model to others. 

Asked why his job as a teacher is cool, he said the first word that comes to mind is satisfying. 

“I am able to give back to so many people, to give so much of myself, to offer selfless service.  When I see the looks on these kids’ faces, when you relate to them on their level, I see growth and change in their lives,” Hawkes said.

“I try to reach ‘em before I teach ‘em,” he said.

He does not just change lives and act as a role model during the school day, but he also coaches varsity football at Nottoway high school in the afternoons and is on the field leading the players during practice and games. 

“I never thought I would be a teacher but the experiences I had and the people I met influenced me,” he said.

One way he influences his students is by giving them a sense of pride in their appearance.  He sponsors Tie Tuesday for the gentlemen in his class and Step It Up for the ladies as they sport their dressier clothes on these days.

Besides teaching and coaching, Hawkes is also a volunteer firefighter in Crewe.  He is certified to teach Fire I and 2 and Hazmat training. 

Hawkes wants to be a role model for his own children, ages, 10, 9, 8 and 14 months.   He and his fiancé’ are both school teachers and he is encouraging her to return to school to complete her Master’s degree.   His philosophy is to keep trying and never give up.  And this certainly shows as he impacts many lives at all levels in Southside Virginia.

Clerk of the Circuit Court to Retire after 51 Years of Service

"After 51 years of serving Greensville County as its Circuit Court Clerk, I will retire effective March 1, 2019.  I wish to thank the citizens who have supported me throughout the years, and the loyal employees who have served alongside me in the Clerk’s Office.  When I first took office in 1968, we were still making entries with pen and ink, and we have now advanced to a mostly digital office.  Though there have been many changes through the years, this office has kept up with the advances in technology, and continued to serve the public in the same courteous and efficient manner they have come to expect," wrote Bobby Wrenn in an email.

Beach Mold & Tool, Inc., Growing Skilled Workers through Apprenticeship

Celebrating a successful Apprenticeship Program at Beach Mold and Tool, Inc. are (l to r)Maynard Stowe, Department of Labor- Office of Apprenticeship, Joey Sims, Beach Mold and Tool HR Manager, Bryan Floyd, Apprentice, Edward (POP) Clements, Apprentice, Clarence Logan, Apprentice, David Batliner, Beach Mold and Tool VP of Operations, Mike Brockway, Beach Mold and Tool Operations Manager, Kelly Arnold, Apprenticeship Coordinator at Southside Virginia Community College.

In the fast-paced world of manufacturing, training skilled workers can be a challenge. For Beach Mold and Tool, Inc., located in Emporia, VA, this challenge was especially true. The company, which is currently expanding, was struggling to find qualified industrial maintenance technicians. With the current manufacturing boom, addressing this issue and formulating a solution was paramount.

For years, trade jobs were not promoted as viable career choices. While this is one factor, another contributor to the deficiency is an aging workforce entering retirement.

Joey Sims, Human Resource Manager, weighed his options and chose to look internally at a training strategy for the skilled worker shortage. To be successful, Joey collaborated with Southside Virginia Community College (SVCC) to implement an industrial maintenance apprenticeship program. The company selected employees who were willing to attend classes one night per week at the Emporia training facility located at the Southside Virginia Education Center (SVEC).   Through hands-on lab work and instruction, the employees are mastering electrical and mechanical concepts. The hard work recently paid off for three employees as they proudly received their machine operator apprenticeship certificate.

David Batliner, Vice President of Operations, for Beach Mold and Tool, congratulated each recipient and spoke proudly of the level of commitment the group had displayed. Speaking from experience, he noted that working full time and attending school is demanding but the rewards are life changing.

Evidence of the employees’ level of commitment occurred right after Maynard Stowe, Department of Labor, presented the certificates at the apprenticeship awards ceremony. Each employee signed up to embark on the next level of training as an Industrial Maintenance Technician.

This is confirmation that the apprenticeship model is the perfect training program to fix the shortage of skilled workers, stated, Kelly Arnold, apprenticeship coordinator for SVCC.  When you combine on-the-job training with a few educational classes, the results are always positive and life changing.

Being able to train locally began when Dr. Chad Patton, Dean, for SVCC, started offering electrical classes at the SVEC in Emporia. Recently, SVCC collaborated with CCAM for a GO Virginia grant to outfit a mechatronics’ lab for workforce training. This lab has simulators that replicate a real-world scenario in an industrial facility. Classes are available every semester to fill the skills trade shortage.

Apprenticeship is the solution. Therefore, while others are sounding the alarm of a skilled labor shortage, Beach Mold and Tool is actively taking steps necessary to fill the gap, said Arnold.

ATTORNEY GENERAL HERRING COMBATS OPIOID CRISIS WITH INNOVATIVE NEW PROGRAM FOR TEENS

~ Herring has partnered with the Preventum Initiative to implement FEND, an opioid education and prevention campaign for teenagers; FEND will be an addition to the AG’s existing approach to the opioid epidemic ~

RICHMOND (December 10, 2018) – Attorney General Mark R. Herring today announced a partnership between his office and the Preventum Initiative to implement FEND (Full Energy, No Drugs), an opioid education and prevention campaign for Virginia teenagers. FEND will engage youth by rewarding them for learning and taking action against opioids and other drugs. The program will be implemented in conjunction with the Attorney General’s existing multifaceted approach to the opioid crisis.

“The opioid epidemic has taken a devastating toll on communities across Virginia,”said Attorney General Herring. “Partnerships like this one with Preventum Initiative and programs like FEND are critical tools we can use to teach young people about the dangers of addiction, opioids, and prescription drugs so they are better equipped to handle situations. I will continue to make combating the heroin and opioid epidemic a top priority and I look forward to working with Preventum Initiative to help make our communities safer.”

Preventum Initiative developed the FEND Movement to educate young adults about the dangers of heroin and opioid use. FEND will roll out in three stages over a two-year period beginning in 2019. The first stage will engage youth across the state, the second will roll out into high schools with a school-based competition model, and the third will empower youth to take the messages of FEND into their local communities. Additionally, the FEND app, which will be freely available in the Apple and Google Play stores, will reward youth for engaging with the app with streetwear, concert tickets, athletic events and other experiences. 

“FEND gives young people the facts about opioids, prescription drugs, and addiction so they can make informed choices about their health,” said Jacquii Burgess, Executive Director of the Preventum Initiative. “Understanding what an opioid is, why they’re so addictive, and how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose can potentially save a life. We are thrilled to partner with Attorney General Herring to educate Virginia’s young people about opioids and other drugs.”

Attorney General Herring has made combating the heroin and prescription opioid epidemic a top priority, attacking the problem with a multifaceted approach that includes enforcementeducation, prevention, and legislation to encourage reporting of overdoses in progress, expand the availability of naloxone, and expand access to the Prescription Monitoring Program. He has supported federal efforts to improve the availability of treatment and recovery resources and made prescription drug disposal kits available across the Commonwealth. Attorney General Herring recently outlined his recommended next steps for combating the crisis, focusing on law enforcement initiatives, support from the medical community, and recovery, treatment, prevention and education. He is also participating in a multistate investigation into the practices of drug manufacturers and distributors to determine what role they may have played in creating or prolonging the crisis. Most recently, Attorney General Herring announced he was suing Purdue Pharma for their role in helping to create and prolong the opioid epidemic in Virginia.

The Preventum Initiative is a 501(c)(3) that brings together technologists and researchers to solve complex public health problems.

Seasonal work can empower you

By Jacqueline Weisgarber

Social Security Public Affairs Specialist in Richmond, Virginia

Soon after school begins in the fall, many businesses begin advertising for seasonal workers.  It’s a good way for people to make some extra income during the busy holiday season or ease back into working.

The diversity of jobs appeals to many people. Each year, companies also hire for seasonal work-from-home positions. These jobs include: customer service, sales, tech support, call center representatives, healthcare support, order taking/review, and more. Seasonal positions may help bridge employment gaps on your resume. They show proven experience and that you are ready, willing, and able to succeed. They also can help you to develop new or strengthen existing skills through training.

If you receive Social Security disability benefits or Supplemental Security Income (SSI), special rules make it possible for people to work and still receive monthly payments. If you want to try working again, seasonal work may help you ease back into the work force. ReadWorking While Disabled at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/EN-05-10095.pdf or visit our Ticket to Work website at https://choosework.ssa.gov for more information.

Keep in mind that you must report all earnings, including your seasonal earnings, to Social Security; however, they also count toward your future benefits. You earn Social Security credits when you work in a job and pay Social Security taxes. We use your total yearly earnings to figure your Social Security credits. You can learn more at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/EN-05-10072.pdf.

You can also get Social Security retirement or survivors benefits and work at the same time. But if you’re younger than full retirement age and earn more than certain amounts, your benefits will be reduced, although not dollar for dollar. Your benefits may increase when you reach full retirement age. You can read more about working while retired at www.socialsecurity.gov/planners/retire/whileworking.html.

Getting back to work can empower you in a number of ways. Social Security is here for you throughout your life’s journey — at each step of your working life and beyond.

Greensville Memorial Foundation Helps Jackson-Feild

Recognizing the importance of doing all they can to improve the quality of life and health of the community, the Greensville Memorial Foundation recently awarded grant funding to Jackson-Feild Behavioral Health (JFBHS) Services to purchase a new eight-passenger van.

On average, residents at JFBHS are driven 20,000 miles per year for medical and dental appointments. Replacing a 2010 minivan with more than 200,000 miles on the odometer, this new vehicle is expected to provide reliable transportation of the children for a number of years.

The board and staff of JFBHS are most grateful to Executive Director Jill Slate and the board of the Greensville Memorial Foundation for this wonderful gift.
