Adair County School District
Today was the 10th presentation of the Safety Zone DUI Awareness Program that Ellen Zornes coordinates for the junior class just prior to Prom each year.
This year as always there was huge support provided by the community. All the local fire departments helped with the "Crash Site" as well as the Adair County Ambulance Service, PHI Life Flight, Air Evac Life Flight, Adair County Rescue Squad, Columbia City Police, Adair County Sheriff's Department, Todd Akin, Adair County Coroner, David Martin with Grissom Martin Funeral Home, Susan Minton, Lindsey Wilson College Instructor, and Josh Gibson - Lindsey Wilson College Admission Officer. The Adair County Regional Jail, Jude Mike Loy, KY State Prosecutor - Angie Capps, and local attorney J.D. Zornes conducted the Preliminary Hearing.
Each year a student is picked at random to be the drunk driver who caused the crash.
This year Sarah McQuaide was the guilty party. The students witnessed the extraction from the scene and life flight along with the legal consequences. The hope of all those involved in the day was to make students aware of the dangers and consequences of drinking and distracted driving.
Also presentations where made concerning different aspects of safety. Presenters included Breeding Volunteer Fire Department, Jelaine Harlow - Health Educator for the Lake Cumberland Area District Health Department, Jaime White - Youth Services Center Director, Columbia City Police, Greg Mendendorp - Bank of Columbia, Jason Rector - Constable, Aimee Weddle - Adanta Regional Prevention Center, and Tiffany Quarles - Alcoholic Beverage Control - Frankfort, Kentucky.
The wrecked cars were donated by Sherman Burton at Burton Salvage and Recycling, Inc.
Ellen would like to thank everyone involved in the 10th presentation of the Safety Zone DUI Awareness Program with a special shout out to Terry and Brandon Harvey for coordinating all the emergency and disaster services, the Breeding Fire Department are lucky to have them. - Shamarie Claiborne
