Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed Senate Bill 288: making distracted driving a primary offense under Ohio law.

The law takes effect in April 3rd, 2023.  After that, officers can issue written warnings only for six months. Following the warning period, the penalties include:

● A fine of up to $150 and two points on your license for the first offense. ** Individuals can avoid the fine and points for a first offense by taking an approved distracted driving course instead. Fines are doubled for those who use cellphones while driving in a construction zone.

● A fine of up to $250 and three points on your license for a second offense within two years.

● A fine of up to $500, four points on your license and a 90-day driver’s license suspension for a third offense within two years.

The law has several exceptions, which include:

● Making an emergency call to police, fire department or the hospital.

● Using a phone while stopped on the side of the road, at a red light or because of an emergency or road closure.

● Holding a phone near your ear for a call.

● Using speakerphone.

● Using navigation services as long as you’re not typing in a destination or holding the phone.

● Using a single touch or swipe to end a call, for example.

How to Protect Your Church from 

Severe Weather

Severe weather goes hand in hand with spring and summer. Lightning, strong winds, flash flooding, hail, or tornadoes could quickly strike your ministry. Take steps now to plan for how your ministry will protect the people or property in your care

Preparing ahead of time can help ensure adequate shelter and supplies are in place and reduce panic.

To begin planning, make a list of how your responses should address:

•Type of emergency: How would your response differ with a weather emergency compared to a threatening person?

•Communication: How will you inform parents that their children are being kept for a shelter in place? How will you reunite families after the danger has passed?

•Number of people present on ministry property: How would you direct and accommodate a full Sunday congregation. How would that plan change with a small Wednesday night Bible study?

•Location at time of emergency: Who will move to another part of the building, and who will stay where they are? Is there a plan for each location on your campus?

•Supplies: What items might you need? Where are they stored?

Emergencies can be unpredictable, but putting a plan in place before danger arrives will help keep people safe and calm.

Watches Vs. Warnings

It’s important to understand the differences between various weather advisories. The National Weather Service can issue the following alerts:

• A severe thunderstorm watch is issued when severe thunderstorms are possible in and near the watch area. It does not mean that they will occur.

• A tornado watch is given when conditions are ideal for a tornado to form. This is the time to start preparing supplies and know where you can take shelter in case a warning is given.

•A severe thunderstorm warning is issued when thunderstorms with high winds, hail, or both are occurring or imminent.

•A tornado warning means that a tornado has been sighted or touched down, and you should seek shelter immediately. A warning may be issued only a minute or two before the storm arrives, so it is important to make your safety preparations once a watch has been issued.


Big Darby Baptist Church caught on fire on 7/2/2020.

The bell in the bell tower is the original bell dating back to 1865 and weighs about 600 pounds.

The cross on the front of the church is made from the original beams that were salvaged from the fire. The beams are also from 1865

Because of their insurance coverage with Thomas Alexander Insurance they had enough building coverage to rebuild and to even buy some extra things the church needed. 

It was our pleasure helping them and we want to help you! Please reach out to us to talk about how we can help you today!
