An accident happened in St. Francois County Wednesday morning at 7:55 on Highway 221 about two tenths of a mile south of Henson Road involving a Salem man. According to the highway patrol report, 54-year old Daniel Adams of Salem was driving a 2002 Ford Taurus northbound on Highway 221 when he lost control on the wet pavement. The Taurus went off the right side of the roadway and Adams overcorrected, then the Taurus went off the left side of the roadway and struck two trees. Adams suffered minor injuries and was taken by the St. Francois County ambulance to the Parkland Hospital. The Ford Taurus was totaled in the accident and was towed from the scene. Adams was wearing seat restraints at the time of the accident.

To help motorists prepare for another busy work zone season, the Missouri Department of Transportation has just released its 2007 Missouri Highway Work Zones Map. The free map details 160 major construction sites across the state. Although not a complete listing of all MoDOT construction projects, the map features descriptions of major projects that may affect traffic across the state this year. Insets of the Kansas City and St. Louis areas offer motorists a more in-depth view of urban roadwork. The map is useful for over-the-road truck drivers, visitors planning a trip across Missouri highways and Missouri citizens who want to learn more about roadwork on their routes. MoDOT has an extremely busy year planned for road improve-ments, and this map will help motorists find the easiest, quickest travel route. Up-to-the-minute work zone information can be found on MoDOT’s web site at Free copies of the 2007 Missouri Highway Work Zones Map are available at tourist information centers, rest areas, and at each of the department’s 10 district offices. Request a copy by calling MoDOT’s customer service center toll-free at 1-888-ASK MODOT (275-6636).

There will be a public meeting tonight at the Western Cherokee Nation Tribal Capitol Complex located at 310 East Tenth Street beginning at 6:30 pm. The meeting will attempt to answer the community’s questions and hear comments in regard to many subjects. Everyone is welcome to attend.

This year’s April 16th opening date for spring turkey season, the earliest ever, gives turkey hunters something they have been asking for. Missouri’s spring turkey regulations remain mostly unchanged from last year. The opening date is an exception. During the mating season in April and May, male turkeys advertise their availability to hens with explosive vocal outbursts. Hunters rely on this habit to find them. Spring turkey season suns for three weeks, from April 16th through May 6th. Hunters can take one bearded bird the first week of the season. After that, they are allowed to take one bearded bird per day, up to the season limit of two. Hunting hours are one-half hour before sunrise to 1:00 pm. Full details of turkey hunting regulations are found in the 2007 Spring Turkey Hunting Information book, which is available where hunting permits are sold.
