Midview Blue Ribbon Crew: students who have great homework records.
On Friday, October 30, approximately 60 sixth grade students from Midview East Intermediate School’s Blue Ribbon Crew enjoyed an afternoon of carnival
activities and refreshments. The afternoon was a reward for missing no more than two homework assignments throughout the ?rst quarter.This makes them
members of the Blue Ribbon Crew. They enjoyed activities such as marshmallow munch, Frisbee toss, ?sh bowl, corn hole and face painting. They were also
treated to a hot dog lunch which included apple slices, caramel with popcorn on the side and a slushy to drink.

Highway Patrol reminds motorists
that safety belts save lives

There is no disputing that wearing a safety belt can save your life. The Ohio State
Highway Patrol is encouraging all motorists to buckle up this upcoming holiday sea-
son and continue to do so throughout the new year. From 2012-2014, 1,157 people
were killed in crashes across Ohio who were not wearing an available safety belt.

“It’s simple – safety belts save lives and reduce injury in crashes,” said Lt. Antonio
Matos, commander of the Ravenna Post. “It is the easiest and most effective action
you can take to protect yourself, your family and your friends.”

The National Highway Traf?c Safety Administration estimates 361 lives were
saved in Ohio and 12,584 were saved nationwide in 2013 as a direct result of motor-
ists buckling up.

According to Ohio’s 2014 Observational Seatbelt Survey, 85% of motorists were
found to be in compliance with Ohio’s safety belt law. This is the highest usage rate
seen since observational studies began in 1991. While these rates appear high, far too
many Ohioans still do not buckle up.

Ohio’s safety belt law remains a secondary violation; however, troopers continue
zero tolerance enforcement when motorists are stopped for other violations and are
found unbuckled. Troopers wrote 121,945 citations last year for failure to wear a
safety belt.

Troopers ask that you wear your safety belt every time and insist that those who
travel with you buckle up as well. For a complete statistical analysis of safety belt
violations please visit

The public is encouraged to call #677 to report impaired drivers and drug activ-
