Special attention will be directed toward drivers speeding, making illegal turns, failing to stop for signs and signals, failing to yield to pedestrians in cross walks or any other dangerous violation.Additionally, enforcement will be taken for observed violations when pedestrians cross the street illegally or fail to yield to drivers who have the right of way. Bike riders will be stopped and citations issued when they fail to follow the same traffic laws that apply to motorists. All riders are reminded to always wear a helmet – those under 18 years of age must wear helmets by law. Pedestrians should cross the street only in marked crosswalks or at corners.Bicycle and pedestrian fatalities are rising in California as more people use these non-motorized means of transportation. Locally, Pasadena Police Department has investigated 539 fatal and injury collisions involving pedestrians and bicyclists during the past three (3) years. In 2012, California witnessed 612 pedestrian and 124 bicyclists killed that year while nationally 4,743 pedestrians and 726 bicyclists were killed.Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

This award-winning, family-owned and operated company provides customers with a single source for all packaging and shipping supplies—from corrugated boxes to folding cartons and protective packaging. GLBC customers range from consumer goods producers to aerospace manufacturers.The company is growing rapidly and needed a better way to respond to customer demands, create innovative designs, improve production efficiency, and precisely manage inventory and deliveries. To meet these needs, GLBC turned to their long-time partner, Dell EMC. The Dell EMC team spent time with the company leaders to better understand the group’s unique challenges and requirements and develop a solution to meet their needs now and into the future. The teams realized that in order to support the company’s growth requirements, GLBC needed major performance enhancements to the existing multi-vendor IT infrastructure.The manufacturer looked at various options including HPE and IBM before choosing the PowerEdge MX platform. This integrated, modular solution enabled GLBC to upgrade not only its computing, but also other critical data center assets including storage and networking resources in the same chassis.“Dell EMC PowerEdge MX was the best fit for us,” said IT Manager, Sorel Apreutesei. “PowerEdge MX has delivered performance increases of up to 100 percent—for both our ERP implementation and other key applications. We rely on it day to day to streamline our business processes from sales to the factory floor. We’re excited that we can grow into the solution and stay with it over the next five to seven years.”With its previous infrastructure consisting of standalone servers and storage, GLBC also faced increasing power and cooling demands. “With everything in the same box, PowerEdge MX substantially decreases our power and cooling costs and enhances our commitment to sustainability,” adds Apreutesei.With Dell EMC OpenManage Modular and iDRAC, the rollout was greatly simplified, providing E2E visibility from a single pane of glass“Our entire focus is to provide customers with absolutely the best packaging products that support their vision and business,” says Doree Quayle, Vice President of Sales. “We have to make sure that we’re evolving alongside our customers. That’s where our new ERP system and PowerEdge MX come into play—ensuring that our people have the tools needed to do their jobs.”Check out the Great Little Box Company case study for complete details on their upgraded IT infrastructure, and the crucial role the PowerEdge MX plays in it.To learn more about the PowerEdge MX modular platform, and our breakthrough kinetic architecture, visit dellemc.com and follow @DellEMCservers.
Although signs are posted at Liberty Park, an ordinance is not in place.The proposed ordinance to ban smoking at Liberty Park was struck down by Batesville City Council Monday.Before council weighed in on the issue, a revised draft excluding information on who would enforce the ordinance was introduced by City Attorney Lynn Fledderman.Several council members indicated that while they themselves may not be smokers, enforcing the ordinance may not be a good use of police time nor government policy.District 2 Council Member Kevin Chaffee said he routinely walks through the park and rarely sees anyone smoking.Fellow council member Bob Narwold said, “I still think were going overboard, its open air, you don’t like someone smoking walk away from that person, I just think were getting carried away.”After council voted against the ordinance, Mayor Rick Fledderman said he would like to meet with organizations that utilize the park to attempt to cut down on smoking and littering. The ordinance could be revisited this summer.
