Drowsy Driving Week November 5-11

This week is National Drowsy Driving week. The main message of drowsy driving week is simple: drowsy driving can be prevented. Here are some tips from the National Sleep Foundation:

•    Make sleep a priority!
•    Sleep is as important as diet and exercise, only easier!
•    Be good to yourself and make time for sleep. Experts recommend 8 1/2 –91/2 hours of sleep for teens and many young adults, and 7-9 hours for adults.
•    Sleep is a necessity, not a luxury. A good night’s sleep should be a regular part of everyone’s daily schedule.
•    When a person doesn’t get enough sleep, a “sleep debt” accumulates that must be repaid—often at unexpected times, such as behind the wheel of a car.
•    Sleep affects every part of one’s life, including health, safety, mood, learning, appearance, relationships, and productivity.
•    Sleep is as vital to our well being as food and water, yet many put it last on their list of priorities.
•    Sleep represents 1/3 of our lives and it has a tremendous impact on how we live, function, perform, and think during the other 2/3 of our lives.
•    Also, learn how to recognize sleep problems. Problems sleeping and daytime sleepiness can signal a sleep disorder, which usually can be treated, or another medical condition. If so, talk to your doctor.

Fall Story Hour
The Weeping Water public library would like to invite all preschoolers and their parents to attend story hour at the Weeping Water public library.

Every Monday morning from 10:00-11:00 a.m.

Story hour is a very informal time that gets parents and their young children out of the house and also gives the children a chance to learn at a young age that reading is fun!

Safe Driver Seminar
      Posted by Terri Scholting on Tuesday, October 23, 2007
American Family Insurance Agent, Terri Scholting is sponsoring a Teen
Safe Driver seminar for Louisville and surrounding communities at
Louisville High School on November 27, 2007, 6:30PM in the commons area.
     The program employs DriveCam technology to capture audiovisual data
both inside and outside the vehicle whenever an incident of high risk
driving behavior occurs-sudden braking or acceleration, swerving, etc.
You may have seen this on Good Morning America, or the Today show as
we introduced it in other states. Now, it's coming to Nebraska.
      An actual vehicle will be on display to demonstrate DriveCam throughout the evening.
      The teen safe driver program is free to all American Family auto
policyholders. We'll even pay for the quick and easy installation.
