We all know that April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, but this year it seems as if we just keep having more rain. So, how about a little information about highway safety and avoiding car accidents through proper use of our headlights.
Did you know that in Minnesota, you can get a ticket for not having your headlights on any time that it is raining, snowing, sleeting, or hailing? This might seem obvious, and it does make a lot of sense toward preventing unnecessary automobile collisions, but let me tell you how this might come up in a way you are not expecting. I know, because it happened to me.
Unions put focus on workplace safety
Labor unions observe Worker's Memorial Day as a way to remember workers who have been injured or killed on the job. A memorial service was held outside the Labor Temple in Duluth and a tree was planted in honor of those workers who were injured and killed on the job. This year focused on the life and work of Kelsey Hagenson, 18, who was killed in a forklift accident on the Bong Bridge between Duluth and Superior last September. Labor advocate Ed Kranz, 68, who died suddenly last November was also honored.
A Hennepin County jury awarded plaintiff Jesse Bukal a significant monetary verdict after a five-day trial. After asking for help from restaurant employees and management, Bukal was struck in the head by another restaurant patron on Aug. 11, 2012, and suffered permanent hearing loss in his right ear from the assault.
