GREASY HAIR HELPS SAVE ENVIRONMENT

 

With the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, word is spreading of a way you can help clean up the oil.  Inspired by the Exxon-Valdez oil spill in Alaska, hair stylist Phil McCrory invented the hair mat in 1989, made of human hair.   More than 370,000 hair salons in the US collect an average of one pound of hair a day and ship it to specific US manufacturers who weave it into hair mats that can soak up oil and clean our beaches and harbors.  Hair is also stuffed into recycled nylons that are used as booms to encircle and contain oil spills.  Locally, hair is being collected at Shear Madness in Greenville.  To see what you can do to assist this worthwhile effort, contact Shear Madness, at 664-9290. 

 

 

 

 


PROM AND GRADUATION SEASON DANGEROUS FOR TEEN DRIVERS

 

At prom and graduation time, many high school students feel pressure to celebrate using alcohol or drugs and then will likely get behind the wheel and drive.  Consequently, car crashes kill more teens during the weekends of prom and graduation than at any other time of the year.  Illinois State Police will be doing their part to make this a safe prom and graduation season.  Troopers will aggressively enforce distracted driving laws and the “fatal five,” DUI, speeding, seat belt, improper lane usage, and following too closely.  You can do your part to help ensure pleasant memories of this year’s prom and graduation by not using drugs or alcohol and always buckling up.  Stay alive, focus on the drive.
