Seasonal Odd-Even Parking Impacts Portions Of Vermillion Odd-Even Parking seasonally impacts the following areas: East/West streets between Dakota and Plum (Cedar & National); North/South streets between Clark and Main (Harvard, Yale, University, Willow & Pine). This protocol allows for the streets to be plowed from curb-to-curb. Plowing curb-to-curb is crucial, because when snow is allowed to accumulate in the street, the freeze-thaw cycle can be very damaging to the pavement. Drainage problems also occur when the gutter area is clogged by snow and ice. The most important factor is safety. Many streets are bordered by parking spaces. Allowing snow to pile up in these areas can create a hazard by forcing parked cars closer and closer to traffic as subsequent storms deposit more snow. Be mindful of months that have 31 days. This results in two consecutive days of no parking. Free Exercise Class At Vermillion Public Library Folks are invited to a free exercise class at the Vermillion Public Library! Every week, USD Health Care Students and volunteers are in the Kozak Room leading healthy movement classes that emphasize reducing fall risk. While these exercises are especially helpful for senior citizens, participants of all ages are welcome. They are held Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9 to 9:30 am. The Edith B. Siegrist Vermillion Public Library is located at 18 Church Street, Vermillion SD. For more information please email Robert at robertceckman@gmail.com.

Group Seeks To Stop Falls Among Older Adults In South Dakota BROOKINGS, S.D. - Between 2007 and 2016, South Dakota was ranked fifth in the nation for death from falls among adults ages 65 and older. Beyond the risk of death, a fall can have a significant impact on individuals, families, and communities. According to the South Dakota Association of Healthcare Organizations, hospital discharge data from 2014-2018 shows the rate of hospitalizations due to falls in individuals age 65 and older is 1,628.8 per 100,000. In 2015, the estimated medical cost of falls across the nation was $95,000 per minute. Organizations across the state recognize the detrimental impact of falls and are taking steps to reduce the risk of a fall among the people they serve. A group of individuals representing Meals on Wheels Western S.D., South Dakota Association of Health Care Organizations, Faulkton Area Medical Center, Service to the Blind and Visually Impaired, Long Term Services and Support, Reinecke Chiropractic, Health Connect of South Dakota, Inc., Sanford Health USD Medical Center, Winner Regional Health, Good Samaritan Society and many more are working together to develop a statewide fall prevention coalition. This group seeks to increase the identification of individuals at risk of a fall and is working to develop a referral structure to connect those individuals with services and resources that may be available. In addition, the group hopes to identify gaps in services and resources to ensure all South Dakotans have access to the support needed to reduce fall risk for themselves or their loved ones.
