Memorial Day To Be Observed Here

Memorial Day

Over the years, Memorial Day has come to represent a lot of things: the beginning of the summer tourist season, the first major summer holiday for outdoor recreation, a major event for auto racing…but we need to never forget the true purpose of the national holiday.  That, of course, is to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we could continue to live our American way of life.  To that end, the American Legion Post in Jackson will lead a series of observances in the valley where they will pay respects at the various cemeteries and at the bridge over the Snake River to remember those lost at sea.  The primary focus of the morning observances, however, will be at the town square at 10:00 am where Legionnaire David Bentlage says veterans, dignitaries and the public will gather.  He says usually there is a proclamation by the mayor and other dignitaries, and sometimes there are letters from other individuals like the Governor or a senator which are read.  There will be a bagpiper, 21 gun salute and a bugler playing taps. Bentlage urges area residents and visitors to join them on the square for the event.

You can set up your decoys to minimize the risk of shooting at birds when they’re too far […]
  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
