Keith Kitts

Public Works – Street Division

On Thursday, March 2, 2023, a Public Works crew was working on the sidewalk near Minnie’s Restaurant. As the crew worked, a visually impaired gentleman approached to cross the street and enter Minnie’s Restaurant. As the gentleman approached the work area, Keith Kitts with Public Works/Street Division immediately noticed the danger of the situation. Without hesitation, Keith approached the gentleman and guided him around the work area and proceeded to have the man place his hand on Keith’s shoulder so that he can safely guide him around the work area. Keith could have let him find his way to Minnie’s from there, but Keith went an extra step and guided him to the door of the restaurant. Keith’s actions lived up to the Columbus Consolidated Government motto, “WE DO AMAZING”! Thank you, Keith, for showing excellent safety practices and being a part of the Columbus Consolidated Government!

April Health Observance

While national figures show a downward trend in the number of young people who use alcohol, alcohol remains the number one drug of choice for America’s youth, and is more likely to kill young people than all illegal drugs combined. That’s why it’s important to get involved in Alcohol Awareness Month, observed annually throughout April.

April is Distracted Driving Awareness Month

Did you know at least eight people a day are killed by distracted driving? Distracted Driving can occur when you take your mind off driving, take your hands off the wheel, or take your eyes off the road. Personal grooming, eating, trying to find the perfect radio station, or reading a text message are all common driving distractions that should be avoided.

Avoid these distractions while driving:

  • making or taking calls
  •  taking photos
  •  reading or sending text messages or emails
  •  looking at any app on your phone
  •  browsing the internet
  •  eating
  •  scanning social media
  •  daydreaming or zoning out
  •  programming your GPS or maps app
  • opening food or drinks
  •  personal grooming
  •  smoking
  •  reaching into the back seat for an item
  • allowing pets on your lap


Workplace Safety Tip:

Make Regular Breaks a Habit - Being over-tired leads to mistakes that lead to injuries; prevent them by taking regularly scheduled breaks. It's hard to stay alert during repetitive tasks, but it's crucial to do so. One tip to consider: schedule the most potentially dangerous jobs when you're fresh, like upon morning arrival or just after a break.

April is Autism Awareness Month, a nationwide effort started by the Autism Society. One in 68 children in the U.S. is born with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ASD is a developmental disability that can cause significant social, emotional, communication, and behavioral challenges. Many people with ASD also repeat certain behaviors, or have difficulty with change in their daily activities. Autistic disorder, Asperger syndrome, and PDD-NOS are conditions that were once diagnosed separately, but are now all considered Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Common reactions to a stressful event can include:

• Disbelief, shock and numbness

• Feeling sad, frustrated and helpless

• Difficulty concentrating and making decisions

• Headaches, back pains and stomach problems

• Smoking or the use of alcohol or drugs

Here are some basic ideas to help you cope with stress:

• Take care of yourself – eat healthy, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep, give yourself a break if you feel stressed.

• Share your problems and how you are feeling and coping with a family member, friend, doctor, pastor or counselor.

• Avoid drugs and alcohol. These can create additional problems and increase the stress you are already feeling.

• Recognize when you need more help – know when to talk to a psychologist, social worker or counselor if things continue.
