On July 19, Haley Albertson, daughter of  Barry and Toni Albertson, was on the back of an ATV her girl friend was driving when she fell off. The fall caused her to strike the back of her head, causing a blood clot in her brain.
Haley is a freshman at Eastern and her brother Trey is a senior.
She was transported by air ambulance to Kosair Children’s Hospital in Louisville for emergency brain surgery.
She was initially listed in critical condition but has been showing slow improvement.
According to her brother’s facebook page she was awake, eating and talking with everyone.
Haley is manager of the Eastern football team. She always has a smile and is real fighter.
Anyone wishing to help, may make donations at PNC bank in an account in Haley’s name.
Haley’s injury came just less than three weeks after a 10-year-old Borden girl died in an off-road vehicle accident.    
Melissa Jeremiah, RN with Hoosier Uplands, released a list of things people should know about 4-wheel safety tips:
#1- Before riding an ATV, if you are new to this form of recreation take a rider training
course. Most ATV manufacturers offer free hands-on training to those who have
purchased a new ATV.
#2- Do not ride alone. Have someone with you so that if something goes wrong there is
someone who will be able to call for help. Also let someone besides the people who
will be with you know where approximately you will be going and an approximate
time you expect to return.
#3- Carry a first aid kit on your ATV at all times, in the event of an emergency.
#4- Discuss safety with your children before allowing them to ride with you on a trail.
#5- Never drive an ATV when under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
#6- Read all the directions and safety instructions that came with your ATV and follow
#7- Never ride on paved surfaces.
#8- Wear the right safety gear, including a helmet.
#9- Wear clothing and shoes that will adequately protect you from objects that you may
encounter such as brush.
#10- Use common sense when riding. This includes riding at a speed appropriate for the
terrain that you are riding in.
#11- Have prior approval of the landowner before riding on someone elses land.
#12- Learn about the area you are riding in. Be on the lookout for downed power lines,
fences, low lying branches and other hazards.
#13- Stay on the designated trails when you are riding.
#14- Keep your ATV’s quiet to avoid stressing wildlife and upsetting landowners.
#15- Approach wildlife and livestock on a trail slowly. If you startle them they may run
directly into your path. Give them time to react and plenty of room.
#16- If you inadvertently stumble onto someones land that you do not have permission
to be on, remove your helmet, before speaking to the landowner. Wearing the helmet
makes you appear to be intimidating and unfriendly. Be honest with the landowner
about how you came to be on his land.

Step through the doors at Delaney Park’s new restaurant and your senses are filled with the smell of Louisiana cooking; Cajun cooking that is.
In May, Perry and Dawn Tyler opened Koozan’s, a restaurant serving authentic Cajun cooking. And before you say, “I don’t like hot food!” Perry wants you to know, “It’s not about the heat; it’s about the flavor.”
He said Cajun food cooked right isn’t necessarily spicy hot, it’s very flavorful.

For nearly 40 years now, volunteers from the local churches have been going into Washington County Prison to teach, befriend and minister to the inmates locked away in solitude there. Different volunteer groups enter the jail at various times: some minister once a month, others go in on a weekly basis. Typically, mens groups go in during every 2nd and 4th week of the month and ladies enter the prisons every 1st and 3rd week.
