OPD to take part in ‘booze and belts’ campaign Dec. 13-21
The Oregon Police Department will take part in a statewide anti-drunk driving and pro-seatbelt campaign Dec. 13-21.The initiative, “Booze and Belts,” will focus on “cracking down on impaired and unbuckled motorists,” according to an OPD news release.“Fatal and serious injuries caused by traf-fic crashes are tragic any time of year, but they are even more devastat-ing especially for fami-lies during the holiday season,” said OPD chief Doug Pettit. “To pre-vent needless deaths and injuries, our officers will be out in force dur-ing the Booze and Belts mobilization looking for unbuckled and impaired motorists along with other unsafe driving behavior.” The news release said there were 27,000 drunk driving convictions and 105,000 convictions for failure to wear a seat belt last year in Wisconsin.“If you drive drunk, you are seriously jeopardizing your life and the lives of others on the road. Even if you’re lucky enough to avoid a crash, you still are risking an arrest that will cause humiliation, huge fines, possibly hav-ing to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicles, and perhaps even jail time,” Pettit said. “We also take safety belt enforcement serious-ly. Too many drivers and passengers are seriously injured or killed while being ejected from their vehicles or tossed around violently inside them dur-ing a crash.” The eight days of mobi-lization on the issue are part of a statewide effort to reduce “preventable traffic deaths” to zero throughout Wisconsin, the release said.“Our goal is voluntary compliance with traf-fic laws, so we urge you to make the responsible decision to buckle up and drive sober,” Pettit said. “But if you make an irresponsible decision, we will stop you and we won’t give you a warning or a second chance.”
Man dies in town of Rutland crash
A 27-year-old man died in a van versus semitruck accident Tuesday morning on Hwy. 14 in the town of Rutland.The crash occurred at 10:45 a.m., just north of Hwy. 92, according to a release from the Dane County Sheriff’s Office.Public Information Offi-cer Elise Schaffer said in the release the male driver of a conversion van crossed the centerline and hit the semitruck head-on.The county medical examiner pronounced the 27-year-old driver dead at the scene.The semitruck driver, a 33-year-old Baraboo man, sustained minor injuries and was taken to UW Hos-pital, the release said.Officials have not released the name of the deceased at this time.years of service. Village President Steve Staton joined Olson in praising Blanchard’s work on behalf of the village. Olson said Blanchard brought “certain values and attributes” to the Park Board that set a tone of respect and patience at its meetings.“One of his notable attri-butes was his patience,” Olson said. “He exhibited not only patience with new members on the board and was very respectful of differing points of view, but more important than that, I think, is simply the patience that he exhibited with people who came before the Park Board.“Jon always made peo-ple feel comfortable,” he added. “The meetings were and still are pretty infor-mal, and I think that’s to Jon’s credit.”Blanchard and the rest of the board began talking about developing a fenced dog park – the village’s first – a few years ago but put the idea on hold while the county considered building a dog park as a component to the Lyman Anderson County Park, a mile or two south of the village. But when it became apparent that the develop-ment would not happen for several years, Blanchard re-introduced the concept about last fall. The Vil-lage Board approved it last December, and Blanchard oversaw the park’s steady progress, including the decision to add a separate area for small dogs within the park, until he resigned from the board in May.The 12.5-acre park is located on Park Street and is bordered on the north by the Oregon branch of Badfish Creek, on the east by U.S. Hwy. 14, on the south by Park Street and on the west where North Perry Parkway will even-tually be extended to con-nect with South Perry Parkway.The park is open from dawn to dusk daily. Use of the park is currently free, but users will have to purchase a daily or annu-al permit at Village Hall beginning Jan. 1.Olson pointed out that the timing to name the park in Blanchard’s honor “was just right” because it had been unnamed before last Saturday.“We thought it more than appropriate to name the park after Jon since a lot of the vision for that park and its development in the village was certainly his,” Olson said.
