SEC trails only ACC in Pro Bowl players - SEC Blog - ESPN

SEC trails only ACC in Pro Bowl players - SEC Blog - ESPN: "Turns out the SEC isn't No. 1 in everything when it comes to football. OK, just kidding around, so no reason to flood me with e-mails, Big Ten and Pac-10 fans. I realize quality football is played in other parts of the country over and above the SEC. It's just that the trophy cases are a little dusty and barren in those other parts of the country. With that said, would you believe that the ACC leads the way this season in producing Pro Bowl players? Actually, it's the third straight year that the ACC has sent the most players to the NFL's all-star event. The ACC has 19 former players in the game this season. The SEC is second with 13 and the Pac-10 third with 12. " 'via Blog this'

ACC's Pro Bowl selections - ACC Blog - ESPN: "For the third straight year, the ACC leads all conferences in the number of former players selected from its current schools to play in the NFL's Pro Bowl, which will be held on Jan. 30 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii, and will be nationally televised by Fox. The ACC had 19 former players selected to play in this year’s Pro Bowl. The SEC was second with 13 selections and the Pac-10 was third with 12. The Big Ten and the Big 12 had nine each. The ACC also led all conferences in number of starting players named to the Pro Bowl, with 12 of its 19 selections projected as starters. The Big Ten was second with seven starters, followed by the Pac-10 (5), the SEC (4) and the Big East, Big 12, Conference USA and the Mid-American Conference with three starters each. Miami led all individual schools with nine of its former standouts playing in the Pro Bowl. Tennessee was next with five followed by USC and California each with three selections. A total of 11 schools had two selections, including three ACC schools in NC State, Boston College and Virginia Tech. Four other ACC schools had one selection each including Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Virginia and Wake Forest." 'via Blog this'

Wis. woman who saved good Samaritan: God helped (AP)

Editor: Everywhere you look an Angel appears.
Wis. woman who saved good Samaritan: God helped (AP): "Victor and Ann Geisbrecht, a Canadian couple from Winnipeg, pulled over Saturday evening to help Berg and Meier change a flat on a highway near Menomonie, in western Wisconsin. Ann Geisbrecht said her husband "always wants to stop" and help stranded motorists. "He's the type of person who gives you 100 percent and worries about himself later," she said in a statement Monday. Nearly immediately after driving off, Giesbrecht went into cardiac arrest and his wife helped bring their pickup truck to a stop. Berg said she and Meier followed behind them a few minutes later, talking about how thankful they were that the couple stopped, when they saw their truck along the side of the road. Berg said she saw Ann waving her hands and Meier and Berg ran over and started performing CPR on Victor Giesbrecht until emergency personnel arrived." 'via Blog this'

There's a Full Beaver Moon Out Tonight

I didn't know that Full Moon's have names




Tonight it is the Full Beaver Moon – November


This was the time to set beaver traps before the swamps 


froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. Another 


interpretation suggests that the name Full Beaver Moon 


comes from the fact that the beavers are now actively 


preparing for winter. It is sometimes also referred to as the 


Frosty Moon.

SUMTER POLICE DEPARTMENT PRESS RELEASE

October 26, 2011

Children throughout Sumter are preparing for one of the most anticipated and fun holidays of the year. Halloween can be a scream and it is important for parents and caregivers to take safety precautions so children can enjoy a safe celebration. The Sumter Police Department offers these simple tips to keep your ghosts and goblins safe:

  • - Be bright at night; use reflective tape on costumes and treat bags, wear light colors, and carry flashlights with fresh batteries for extra visibility.
  • - Costume should not obstruct your child’s vision.
  • - Look all ways and listen for traffic before crossing.
  • - Cross at corners, not between parked cars or mid-block.
  • If there are no sidewalks, always walk facing traffic, on the left side of the road.
  • - Talk to your children about safety issues, such as not getting into cars or talking to strangers, walking not running, looking both ways before crossing the street and not approaching houses that don’t have outside lights on or dogs in a fenced yard.
  • - Younger children should always be accompanied by an adult or trustworthy teen;
  • older children should be given boundaries and should communicate with their
  • parents along the way.
  • - Parents should inspect all treats before allowing children to eat, do not eat anything
  • that appears to have been tampered with.
  • - Parents should ensure that children trick–or-treating door to door stay in areas they are familiar with and stick to friends and neighbors they know personally; Parents are encouraged to check the Sumter County Sex Offender Registry www.sumtercountysc.org/departments/sheriff/SOR.htm if planning to Trick-or-Treat in unfamiliar areas.

Sumter Police Chief Russell Roark said his department will assign additional marked and unmarked police patrols while children are out trick-or treating on residential streets and in neighborhoods. “We want to remind motorists to watch carefully for pedestrians and pay close attention to their speed. Kids will be outside after dark, walking along and crossing streets that are many times unfamiliar to them,” said Roark.

Halloween revelers looking for an alternative to door-to-door trick or treating are encouraged to join the Sumter Police Department and Sumter County Sheriff’s Office on Monday October 31st
from 6pm-8pm at the Sumter Mall located at 1057 Broad Street

Officers will partner with mall merchants to offer a spooktacular Halloween event with candy, movies, games and a costume contest with prizes. Chief Russell Roark and Sheriff Anthony Dennis want to ensure that every child in Sumter has the opportunity to enjoy Halloween in a fun and safe environment.

“HALLOWEEN IN SUMTER”


Halloween for many is a fun time of the year for children and adults.  The holiday of festive activities is also known for the traditional “Trick-or-Treating” from house to house in search of the delicious pieces of candy and praise for the best dress costume.   The Sumter Police Department is asking that all “Trick-or-Treating” on Monday, October 31, 2011 take place between the hours of 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.   Safety is a primary concern for all, and the City of Sumter officials encourage all parents to support the various school or church planned events also made available as safe alternatives to “Trick-or-Treating”.   Due to the downtown revitalization construction underway and new construction to start and continue into first quarter, the 2011 Halloween on Main event has been cancelled. 

Though there are Halloween events planned all over the city, many children will still trick-or-treat this October 31st. If your child is going to engage in this traditional Halloween activity, here are some safety tips they should keep in mind.

Costumes and Dress Up

  • Costumes are always fun but should be at a length that children cannot trip over them.  Try to have costumes above the ankle or shorter.
  • When decorating your face, makeup is always a fun alternative.  Halloween masks can make it difficult to see through the eyeholes or provide sufficient air flow through the nose and mouth holes.
  • Wear bright colored costumes and decorate with bright colored or reflective tape, markers and paints easily seen in the dark.
  • Avoid sharp objects with your costume when possible to make sure you and your fellow Trick-or-Treaters are safe.

Tips for Door to Door
  • A parent or responsible adult should always accompany young children on their neighborhood rounds.
  • If your older children are going alone, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when they should return home.
  • Only go to homes with a porch light on and never enter a home or car for a treat.
  • Because pedestrian injuries are the most common injuries to children on Halloween, remind Trick-or-Treaters:
  • Stay in a group and communicate where they will be going.
  • Carry a cell phone for quick communication.
  • Remain on well-lit streets and always use the sidewalk.
  • If no sidewalk is available, walk at the far edge of the roadway facing traffic.
  • Never cut across yards or use alleys.
  • Only cross the street as a group in established crosswalks (as recognized by local custom).  Never cross between parked cars or out driveways.
  • Don't assume the right of way. Motorists may have trouble seeing Trick-or-Treaters. Just because one car stops, doesn't mean others will!
  • Law enforcement authorities should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity.
