01/31/2014 – Decatur’s Mardi Gras Celebration set for March 1

leave a comment »

mardi-gras-backgrounds--2Decatur, Ala. – In January, the Carnegie Visual Arts Center held its Twelfth Night Dinner, in preparation for the 2014 Carnegie Carnival, a day-long event where downtown Decatur transforms into a Mardi Gras-style celebration. Set for the first Saturday in March, Carnegie Carnival fills Decatur’s historic downtown area with parades, a red beans and rice cook-off, and other family-friendly activities.

Promoting art and creativity and family fun, the third annual Carnegie Carnival returns to Decatur March 1, 2014. The event gets underway at 8 a.m. with the Mardi Gras 5K sponsored by the Junior League of Morgan County, and throughout the day, a variety of activities geared for adults and children are planned. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Carnegie Visual Arts Center will host a photography exhibit “Captions of Carnegie Carnival.” The first parade of the day, sponsored by Animal Friends Humane Society, is the Carnival Canines on Parade. Starting at 11 a.m., four-legged friends will trot through downtown Decatur beginning on 2nd Avenue at Gordon Drive and ending at Founder’s Park.

The Red Beans and Rice Cook-off is set for 11 a.m. at Casa Grande Park on 2nd Avenue with the award presentation at 4 p.m. The tasty event is open to professional and amateur Cookin’ Crewes. There will be first, second, and third place winners and the team with the most “tips” in the Tip Jar will be presented the People’s Choice award.

From noon to 4 p.m. the Kiwanis of Decatur Creation Station art area will be set up at Founders Park with free hands-on art activities for children, and on 2nd Avenue, adjacent to the Alabama Center for the Arts, a children’s play area sponsored by Morgan County CAC will provide family-friendly entertainment.

At 2 p.m., the Prince and Princess Parade for children takes to the streets of downtown Decatur beginning at Founders Park and ending in front of the Princess Theatre. The parade, for tots through teens, is sponsored by the Princess Theatre.

The grand finale is the Carnegie Carnival Parade at 6 p.m. Crewes will proceed in a traditional Mardi Gras-style, complete with themed floats, costumes, “throws”, and music with the route beginning on 2nd Avenue at Gordon Drive, continuing onto Lee Street/Bank Street, and ending at Founder’s Park near the Old State Bank. The parade will be led by 2014 Carnegie Carnival King Jimmy Dawes and Queen Juanita Healy.  The evening will conclude with the crowning of the 2015 Carnegie Carnival King and Queen at the Carnegie Carnival Crewe Party at Ingalls Harbor.

During Carnegie Carnival, downtown merchants will be open and shoppers can browse for locally made and one-of-a-kind items and participate in the Carnival Crawl. From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., shoppers can visit merchants and collect stickers for a chance to win a prize.

Parade registration forms and activity information are available at www.carnegiecarnival.org. Proceeds benefit the Carnegie Visual Arts Center and other non-profits organizations in the Decatur area. For additional information, call the Carnegie Visual Arts Center at 256.341.0562.

01/05/2014 – Weather Advisory and Precautions From: Marion County, AL EMA Director Jimmy Mills

leave a comment »

From: Marion County, AL EMA Director Jimmy Mills:

This is the Sunday, 3 p.m. update from the NWS in Birmingham: Rain starting now in northwest Alabama. The cold front will enter the area in the 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. time frame. Little wintry mix expected; however, any remaining moisture from earlier precipitation which doesn’t dry off will turn to ice. Temperatures are expected to drop drastically. Tonight’s low is forecast at 12 degrees. The high tomorrow is forecast at 16 with winds 15 to 25 mph and gusts to 35 mph which will drop the wind chill to below zero. The temperature tomorrow night is forecast at 4 degrees. We do not expect to climb above the freezing mark until at least mid-day on Wednesday.

Reminders of immediate actions which need to be taken:

We would strongly suggest conducting tests of all fire detectors and carbon monoxide detectors and replacing old batteries with new batteries and make sure all detectors are working properly.

Please remember to check on the elderly and those individuals who are in questionable housing conditions, and those who are mentally challenged to make sure they have adequate heat. Very simply, be a good neighbor! If you find a situation where someone needs access to a warming station, please contact the Marion County EMA office at (205) 921-4555.

Also, please remember to provide shelter for all outdoor animals, to include access to food, water, shelter, and heat.

Winter Safety

What is frostbite? It is injury or destruction of skin and underlying tissue, most often that of the nose, ears, fingers or toes, resulting from prolonged exposure to freezing or subfreezing temperatures.

What is hypothermia? It is an abnormally low body temperature, often caused by prolonged exposure to cold.

What is wind chill? As wind speeds increase during the winter months, they can make the temperature outside feel even colder than it actually reads on a thermometer. This cooling factor is given a name-the wind chill effect.

SAFETY TIPS:

Keep ahead of winter weather by listening to the latest weather warnings and bulletins on NOAA Weather Radio,

local radio or television. Be alert to changing conditions and avoid unnecessary travel.

IN YOUR HOME (AND BUSINESSES):

Check battery powered equipment, and stock extra batteries for flashlights and a portable television or radio.

Also, check emergency cooking facilities.

Check your food/water supply and stock extra if needed. Your supplies should include food that requires no cooking or refrigeration in case of power failures. Consider high energy foods such as dried fruit or candy.

Don’t forget prescription medicines, first aid supplies, and other specialty items.

Check your supply of heating fuel, but prevent fire hazards due to overheated coal or oil-burning stoves, fireplaces, heaters, or furnaces. Emergency responders can be hampered by extreme weather conditions and may not be able to respond quickly-arrange for emergency heat in case of an extended power failure.

Stay indoors during storms and cold snaps. Elderly persons, children, and those in bad health may be especially susceptible to cold weather. Avoid overexertion, especially if shoveling snow.

Dress to fit the season. Loose, layered clothing will keep your body warm, and a hat and mittens will protect your extremities.

Don’t forget your pets or livestock. Move animals to sheltered areas. For pets, bring them indoors or provide some form of heat. Provide fresh water since many pets die from dehydration in winter storms.

IN YOUR VEHICLE:

Be sure your vehicle is winterized by the end of November. Check oil, belts, tires and battery to ensure good working condition.

Carry a winter storm car kit, especially if you anticipate travel in north Alabama. Items to consider include

blankets/sleeping bags, flashlights and batteries, first aid kit, non-perishable foods, extra clothing, ice scraper water, road maps, small shovel, rope, kitty litter or sand for traction and a cell phone car charger.

If the storm exceeds or even tests your driving limitations, seek available shelter immediately. Plan your travel and select primary and alternate routes. Check the latest weather information before departing, and drive carefully and defensively. Avoid traveling alone, and be sure someone knows your travel plans and route of travel.
