Assignment Fox Cities

Monday, Dec, 22 2014

     Law enforcement agencies, firefighters, medical officials, social
workers and others in Winnebago county are working to launch a
CART program.   CART is an acronym for Child Abduction
Response Team, organized to make a quick response if a child
is abducted from anywhere in Winnegago county.
   Town of Menasha police officer Jason Weber says about 100
members from participating agencies would be part of CART.
They hope to have the program up-and-running in the spring
and be certified by summer.
   Although CART resembles the well-established Amber Alert,
Weber says they would not compete but complement.
   There are about 100 CART programs nationwide; only 19 have
met certification standards.
   Learn more about CART on our website, whby.com.  You'll find it
under Audio Vault and Assignment Fox Cities.

     Winnebago county parents and their teenage drivers have signed contracts
spelling-out rules of the road when behind the wheel.  The program is called
Parents Are The Key, a program designed to ensure young drivers practice
safe driving habits.
     The contract provides no drinking and driving, no texting while driving,
staying within the speed limits, wearing a seat belt and a lot more.  Parents
agree to be good role models when they are behind the wheel.

department Lt. Lori Seiler discuss Parents Are The Key in an Assignment

     Several thousand Fox Valley area high school students attended a
PARTY recently at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton.
There was no music nor food, only wholesome advice on how to
avoid impaired driving.
     PARTY is an acronym for Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma
In Youth, a program sponsored by Theda Clark Medical Center
Foundation.
     One of the presenters was PaKou Xiong of Appleton, convicted of
homicide by negligent use of a motor vehicle.   The charge was
leveled after Xiong struck and killed a bicyclist while texting and driving.
     In a voice cracking with emotion, Xiong urges her young audience
to avoid similar behavior.
     You'll find the story on our website, whby.com, under Audio Vault
and Assignment Fox Cities.
