Highway heroes: IDOT workers find, return stolen jewelry box

Great story about a couple of guys who went above and beyond their job descriptions to return some precious keepsakes one couple thought they’d never see again.

Blowing Up a Bridge

(That title got your attention, didn’t it?)

Had to share this – it is the demolition of the westbound span of the old Chain of Rocks Canal bridge in Granite City, IL.

I had the opportunity to get video and photos of this event when it happened a couple of weeks ago. It was really cool! Enjoy.

Winter Driving Tips

Well, it’s winter and after getting about half a foot of snow dumped on us last night, it seems appropriate to share this video for anyone who’s interested. It’s narrated by someone you know. 🙂

Take a look at some helpful winter driving tips from the Illinois Department of Transportation and please be careful out there, friends!

Have a great day.

Yellow Dot Program

Yes, I work for the agency that runs this program and yes, I produced this video…but I’m writing this post with my PR hat off, because I really think it’s a worthwhile program and one that is worth sharing here.

You pick up a free yellow dot sticker and put it on the back window of your car. You fill out a card with your medical information. That’s it.

Why do this? If you are in a crash and have any medical conditions or special needs or restrictions, paramedics will know by seeing that yellow dot to look for the card in your glove compartment to make sure they get you what you need – and equally important, that they don’t get you what you don’t need. The minutes or even seconds saved by having that information handy could potentially save lives.
