The Dent County Commissioners met for their regular meeting Thursday morning at the Dent County Courthouse. Dent County Treasurer Denita Williams reported that the CART tax received by the county in the month of October was up $1,607.13 from the month of September, and that put the county ahead $480.97 over the same 10-month collection period as last year. In the road report, District 1 Commissioner Dennis Purcell said that grading was going to be done on Dent County Roads 5600, 6010, 6580 and 6585.

An accident happened Thursday morning at 11:15 in Dent County on county road 4210 about three miles northeast of Salem. According to the highway patrol report, a 1991 Chevrolet S-10 driven southbound by 22-year old Buck Prater of Salem, failed to negotiate a curve, the vehicle struck a tree and came to rest on its side. Prater suffered minor injuries and was taken to the Salem Memorial District Hospital for treatment. Prater was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of accident and the Chevy S-10 sustained extensive damage and was taken from the scene.

Two of The Doe Run Company’s (Doe Run) Southeast Missouri Mining and Milling Division (SEMO) mines have earned the highly coveted Sentinels of Safety award, the most prestigious mine safety award in the nation. The Buick Mine won for outstanding safety performance in the Large Underground Metal Mine category, and the #29 Mine was honored in the Small Underground Metal Mine category. This is the sixth Sentinels of Safety award for Buick Mine and the first for #29 Mine. Doe Run and its predecessor companies have now won the Sentinels of Safety award 27 times since 1971. Co-sponsored by the National Mining Association (NMA), the Sentinels of Safety awards were developed in part by President Herbert Hoover more than 75 years ago and are recognized as one of the nation’s oldest and most admired occupational safety awards. The awards honor the safest large and small underground mines in the country for 2012, based on employee safety data provided to the Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). The company credits these awards to employees’ commitment to continuous improvement through proactive safety training and programs. SEMO employees complete daily mobile equipment and work area inspections, and report any potential hazards. Supervisors use the Behavior Based Safety (BBS) program to observe employee behavior, reward safe actions or provide one-on-one coaching to correct unsafe behaviors. SEMO employees also receive 40 hours of in-depth training on MSHA guidelines upon hire, as well as annual safety training throughout their careers. Doe Run’s Casteel Mine and Brushy Creek Mine also finished in the top five for the Large Underground Metal Mine category. Earlier this year, SEMO reached 2.75 million safe work hours without a lost-time injury. Prior to this accomplishment, SEMO’s highest achievement on record was 1.25 million safe hours.
