We are very concerned about that and we want to do everything we can about that’” he said.From Monday, September 19 to October 1, associated local businesses will be running special offers on handsfree kits for drivers to install and use in their cars.“We want to encourage people to avail of the offers and to cease the practice of holding a phone while driving” Inspector Reidy said after he said that 1,996 people have been detected committing the offence so far in 2016.Chief Superintendent Dave Sheahan said that the Limerick divisional traffic corp had “carried out a number of blitz detections and were catching 40 or 50 people using their mobiles while driving.“That should not be part of our job. We want to get the message across but, for some reason, it is not getting out there.“The aim of the initiative introduced by Inspector Reidy and local mobile phone business affiliated to Limerick Chamber is to create awareness rather than having people getting caught.“We want people to have the information. It is important to convince people that the idea of using a mobile phone while driving is a non-runner and everyone knows how dangerous it is but yet people still try to do it.“If you look at some of the hard hitting advertisements on radio and television that are out there now, it’s hard to understand why the message isn’t getting through” Supt Sheahan said.“I know in my house some people turn the television off because the advertisements are so graphic and hard hitting. What we are trying to do with this initiative is to try and create that extra awareness. We are not out there to try and catch people using their mobile phone. We are out there trying to save their lives.

first_imgWhile our neighbor to the northeast, South Carolina, was left reeling from October’s floods, parts of Georgia were left with less rain than normal. Rainfall amounts varied dramatically across the Southeast. For instance, Charleston, South Carolina, received 18.91 inches during October, while four hours away Savannah, Georgia, received just one-tenth of that. The difference is remarkable and shows how localized the rain from the South Carolina flood event was. Georgia luckily avoided most of the problems associated with the flooding in South Carolina. The heaviest rain in Georgia from this event occurred in the northeastern mountains. Local stream flooding occurred in some locations, but was much less than the extensive flooding that occurred in South Carolina. Farmers were generally thankful for the drier conditions they saw last month. Wet conditions helped ease drought conditions in parts of the state but also caused boll rot in some cotton plants and caused hay to rot in the fields. The rest of the month was quite dry, which allowed farmers to harvest cotton and peanuts and cure hay for the winter. At the end of the month, farmers were waiting for rain to return, so they could start planting winter cover crops and small grains. The highest monthly total precipitation recorded by National Weather Service stations was 6.43 inches in Rome, Georgia — 2.57 inches above normal — and the lowest was in Albany, Georgia, at 0.65 inches — 1.94 inches below normal. Atlanta received 2.55 inches, 0.86 inches below normal; Athens, Georgia, received 5 inches, 1.45 inches above normal; Columbus, Georgia, received 1.07 inches, 1.51 inches below normal; Macon, Georgia, received 1.7 inches, 1.09 inches below normal; Savannah, Georgia, received 1.78 inches, 1.91 inches below normal; Augusta, Georgia, received 4.62 inches, 1.35 inches above normal; Alma, Georgia, received 3.26 inches, 0.23 inches above normal; and Valdosta, Georgia, received 1.73 inches, 1.47 inches below normal. Two daily rainfall records were set in October. Alma received 2.51 inches on Oct. 1, breaking the old record of 0.58 inches set in 1989. Brunswick, Georgia, received 3.38 inches on the same date, surpassing the old record of 0.76 inches set in 1957. The highest single-day rainfall amounts recorded by Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network stations were recorded on Oct. 4 in conjunction with the South Carolina flood event. The highest rainfall amount in the state was 5.2 inches, observed northeast of Hartwell, Georgia, in Hart County on Oct. 4, followed by 5.14 inches received west of Dahlonega, Georgia, in Lumpkin County and 4.91 inches received near Sylvania, Georgia, in Screven County. The highest monthly total rainfall was 14.07 inches, observed northeast of Dillard, Georgia, in Lumpkin County. Only two isolated wind damage reports were made in October, both on the first day of the month, but there were a few unofficial reports of wind damage on Oct. 7 in Athens where wind combined with water-logged soil to topple a handful of trees — damaging houses and causing isolated power outages. Temperatures across the state were close to average compared to the western half of the country, which had well-above-normal temperatures. In Atlanta, the monthly average temperature was 64.1 degrees Fahrenheit, 0.8 degrees above normal; in Athens, 62.2 F, 0.8 degrees below normal; in Columbus, 66.5 F, 0 degrees below normal; in Macon, 64.3 F, 0.6 degrees below normal; in Savannah, 68.2 F, 0.3 degrees above normal; in Brunswick, 70.2 F, 0 degrees below normal; in Alma, 68.3 F, 0.1 degrees below normal; in Augusta, 64 F, 0.4 degrees below normal; in Albany, 69 F, 0.9 degrees above normal; in Rome, 61.8 F, 0.6 degrees above normal; and in Valdosta, 70.2 F, 1.5 degrees above normal. In general, the warmest temperatures were in areas where the precipitation was lowest. One daily temperature record was broken in October. Alma reported a low of 39 F on Oct. 19, breaking the old record of 40 F, set in 2009. Macon also tied a record high of 88 F on Oct. 16, matching the observation from 1971. The outlook for November shows an increased chance of warmer and wetter-than-usual conditions across the state, which should aid in the removal of drought throughout the state.

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error NBA player Jason Collins, who has yet to sign a free-agent contract with a team, and former Dodger Billy Bean threw out the ceremonial first pitch on LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi,transgender) night. Amber Riley of “Glee” sang the National Anthem along with the Gay Men’s Chorus of L.A.Collins was the first athlete in the four major sports to announce he was gay while still playing.“I was amazed and humbled at the tremendous support I received,” Collins said in a one-question on-field pre-game interview on the Dodgers JumboTron.This was the first LGBT night of its kind at Dodger Stadium. Injury reportAndre Ethier (ankle) took 15 at-bats at the Dodgers training facility in Arizona … Hanley Ramirez (pinched nerve in back) still was out of the lineup Friday but is in Los Angeles. He might not play the remaining two games of the regular season, either, but Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he’s not worried about timing issues at the plate … Nick Punto was scratched from Friday’s lineup with a right in-grown toenail.Walter weighs inDodgers owner and chairman Mark Walter issued a statement about MLB commissioner Bud Selig’s recent retirement announcement. He is set to retire after the 2014 season. “Speaking as a life-long fan of the game, Bud Selig’s love of baseball, its players and fans had always been obvious. Now, as an owner of one of the sport’s most storied franchises, I can see that his respect for the integrity of the sport, its beauty and nuances are even more evident in every carefully considered decision he’s made.“Baseball’s popularity, sweeping economic growth, labor peace and unity are a direct result of Bud’s tireless efforts and leadership, which have had a significant impact on franchise values in every market …” Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers can call that a brilliant tuneup for the postseason.Kershaw pitched a four-hit gem, and Adrian Gonzalez, Carl Crawford and A.J. Ellis all homered to lead the Dodgers to an 11-0 lead Friday through seven innings at Dodger Stadium. Fans beckoned for a curtain call from their ace, and Kershaw obliged after he shut out the Rockies through six innings. He struck out eight and walked none in a masterful 82-pitch outing. This was the last regular-season start for Kershaw, but if this had been the regular season, he probably could’ve thrown a complete game shutout. Kershaw will start Game 1 of the National League Division Series on Thursday against an undetermined opponent. He enters the postseason with a 1.83 ERA and maybe a Cy Young Award on the horizon. center_img The Dodgers scored four runs in the first inning as Gonzalez started things with a two-run homer to right-center field off Colorado starter Collin McHugh. The Dodgers continued to sizzle offensively and take advantage of the hapless Rockies pitching staff. Perhaps of concern is that star rookie Yasiel Puig was hobbling around after fouling a pitch off his left leg in the fifth inning. His night was done after the at-bat. X-rays on his shin were negative. Puig is not likely to be in the lineup for Saturday’s game but is expected to play in the regular-season finale on Sunday. Honoring DenverThere was a moment of silence before the game to honor Jonathan Denver, 24, who was stabbed to death in an alleged fight over the Dodgers-Giants rivalry in San Francisco over the weekend. Denver is the son of a Dodgers security guard. During the moment of silence, the JumboTrons faded to black. Afterward, fans applauded as a sign of respect.LGBT nightlast_img read more
