VERSAILLES, Ind. – State troopers are offering a few safety tips during the Halloween holiday.Parents and children will be out in full force over the next few days trick-or-treating and police would like to remind residents to observe a few rules that endorse a fun and safe evening:Try make-up instead of a mask. Masks often obstruct a child’s vision, which makes tasks like crossing the street and going up and down stairs dangerous.Make sure children wear light colors or put reflective tape on their costumes.Make sure older children trick-or-treat with friends. Together, map out a safe route so parents know where they will be.Instruct children to stop only at familiar homes where the outside lights are on.Encourage children to trick-or-treat while it’s still light out. If children are out after dark, make sure they have flashlights and travel on well lighted streets.Remind children not to enter the homes or cars of strangers.Remind children not to eat any of their treats until they get home.Check out all treats at home in a well-lighted place.Only eat unopened candies and other treats that are in original wrappers. Remember to inspect fruits for anything suspicious.Motorists are reminded that they should also do their part in making Halloween safe for children.
Yesterday I wrote about a potential Indiana All-Star in Josh Speidel, and today my blog is about another Indiana All-Star who is having a tough year. All of you are familiar with the ACL injury that Bryan Hoeing suffered in basketball early in the season. Fortunately, he was able to start playing baseball after a short delay.Things seemed to be going fine for Bryan until one May afternoon when he had to leave the mound in the 3rd inning of a ball game. It has been determined that he suffered an elbow injury that usually requires Tommy John surgery. I am not sure when this is going to occur and whether it will be Tommy John surgery or not, but he will require some form of surgery.I understand that he will take himself out of the baseball draft this year and go to Louisville as planned. I understand the surgery is to be taken care of by the university and he will red-shirt this baseball season. Because of major league baseball rules, I believe he must play for the Louisville Cardinals before he is eligible to re-enter the draft. We will just have to wait and see how this comes out.
