By Rachel Dissell, The Plain Dealer | Posted July 22, 2018 at 06:00 AM | Updated July 22, 2018 at 10:26 AM The national Stop the Bleed effort in Northeast Ohio has led to the training of thousands of citizens to treat uncontrolled bleeding from gunshot, puncture or other traumatic injuries. Teaching citizens to properly apply pressure and tourniquets has the potential to reduce deaths during mass casualty incidents and as a response to more common traffic crashes, workplace accidents and shootings or stabbings. Those behind the effort hope the knowledge will someday be as commonplace as CPR or the Heimlich maneuver, used to help people who are choking. Below read about how the movement started almost 25 years ago during a military battle in Somalia is now being used as a response to gunshot wound victims in Northeast Ohio. US Army Somalia Kathy Willens/AP US Army Somalia In 1993, during the Battle of Mogadishu in Somalia (pictured above), the United States … [Read more...] about Stop the Bleed: How battlefield first aid got to U.S. streets
Stop the traffic
By Tim Grobaty | [email protected] | Press-Telegram PUBLISHED: September 12, 2011 at 12:00 am | UPDATED: September 1, 2017 at 5:02 am THE CIRCLE GAME: We promised we’d be back with more street name origins, but we got seriously bogged down in Belmont Shore, with Naples historian Stan Poe trying to help us out of our haplessness. What a mess the Shore was back in its early days when it was rising out of the swampland of the San Gabriel River wetlands. Here’s one thing: Division Street, which runs parallel to Second Street and Ocean Boulevard in the Shore, used to be a drainage canal. But more on that later. For now, we’re all tied up with another favorite among readers: The Traffic Circle. Why’s it there? Did its designer die on it? Stuff like that. Work began on the Los Alamitos Traffic Circle – its official name, though it hardly needs the burdensome nomenclature as it’s the only major one in the state – in 1932, to assist the large … [Read more...] about Tim Grobaty: The Traffic Circle’s roundabout history

Taylor Goebel Salisbury Daily Times Published 10:58 p.m. UTC Jun 19, 2018 When Sussex County councilman George Cole told a roomful of homeowners he voted against their community, it wasn't because he didn't like them. The Peninsula, a sprawling 800-acre community of over 1,400 homes in Millsboro, was a "great community," Cole said in a recent phone interview, but too dense and out of character with the area, "larger than three-fourths of the small towns in this county." He told the property owners earlier this year, "Folks, I wish half of you weren't here." Cole is at the center of a debate — one that could have lasting effects on southern Delaware's upsurge in traffic — as the council plans for Sussex County's next 27 years in its comprehensive plan: Should the council allow more housing units per acre to reduce sprawl, or stick to the low-density status quo? Sussex is the fastest growing county in Delaware. The population … [Read more...] about ‘The traffic is us’: Sussex grapples with density debate as county housing grows
