This weekend marks the official beginning of Jackson Hole’s summer tourist season.  As such, life will change slightly for local residents with the influx of hundreds of thousands of visitors.  Sergeant Cole Nethercott of the Jackson Police Department saysthe watch word needs to be patience.  He says there will be an increase in traffic, and with that, an increase in drivers who have never been here before and don’t always know where they’re going.  Those of who live here, he says, sometimes get in a hurry to be places sometimes.  Says Nethercott:  “The best prevention of accidents often times at this time of year is to just slow down.”  This year, even more patience and vigilance will be needed along Broadway near the intersection with Flat Creek due to traffic being limited to a single lane each direction which is causing a significant bottleneck through that area.

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
