A 23-year-old Afton man is in the hospital, after an accident Thursday night in Waynesboro.  Just before 7pm, witnesses told police that a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by the victim was heading westbound on W.Main Street, when it suddenly swerved over the eastbound lane, colliding with a utility pole and fire hydrant at the intersection of W. Main Street and Locust Street. Sgt. Brian Edwards with the Waynesboro Police Department said the impact caused the jeep to flip and the driver, who wasn't wearing a seat belt, had to be cut out of the vehicle.

It's a time to prepare, not panic

It started half a world away from America. There were conflicting reports as to how the outbreak started, but the panic was very real. Here in the Valley and throughout the nation, hospitals and health departments held press conferences to outline what plans were in place to combat the virus. The year was 2002 and at that point, the West Nile virus was public enemy number one. By 2005, that panic had ended, replaced with a fear that the bird flu would travel from Asia and create problems in the United States. In 2009, it was Swine Flu and now, we have the threat of Ebola. The reality is that every few years, we see new viruses and different strains of old ones come up. It’s an ongoing cycle that we seem to be caught in. The lesson here however is that it’s wise to prepare, but there’s no need to panic.
