Our Local Red Cross is offering a “Vial for Life” program that is effectively allowing our county residents to have their medical information in an easy and accessible manner. Residents can purchase a vial that will house the resident’s medical conditions, allergies, medication and other essential personal information. The vial is then placed in their refrigerator for easy access for responders such as EMS or the fire departments. This information is also valuable for their family members that don’t know all of their information in case of an emergency. The forms are easy to fill out, but invaluable in a time of emergency when the resident may be incapable to communicate or remember all of the medical information. I would recommend all residents consider the purchase of this vial (at a cost of $5) for their safety and health. The vials can be purchased at our local Red Cross chapter, the Chariton County Ambulance District in Salisbury and the Chariton County Health Department.

For the first time ever, Union Pacific (UP) allowed the public to route where their steam giants will travel in 2011. On January 18, the votes were in, tabulated, and the winner announced . . . The Little Rock Express!
Starting in Kansas City, MO, the The Little Rock Express route will travel through more than 60 Missouri communities with stops in Booneville, Jefferson City, Chamois, St. Louis, Cape Girardeau, Dexter and Poplar Bluff. UP will announce the excursion date and other details in the coming weeks. Follow UP on Facebook and Twitter for the latest information.
Thank you to all those who voted and secured this excursion for Missouri.
You may be asking, “What difference does this make to Brunswick?” Brunswick is included in the “Old Trails Region” and has the potential to benefit from the exposure Old Trails will receive when the Union Pacific steam giants travel The Little Rock Express route. This is a wonderful opportunity for the Old Trails Region and plans are being made for events to capitalize on this opportunity for the Old Trails Region.
