School’s Out, Watch Out

school out

Today is the day that most of the valley’s young people have been looking forward to – last half- day of school before summer vacation.  Now that school is out, Jackson Police Chief Todd Smith says drivers on the town’s streets will need to be more attentive for children to be almost anywhere.  Smith says the youngsters will be on and off the sidewalk and occasionally on the streets; and he says motorists need to take a little extra time and be aware that there could be a child who runs out in front of them in residential areas. Smith urges parents to provide their children with some guidance about safe summer behavior.  Among those cautions should be avoiding those areas that are heavily congested with people who may be on vacation here and unfamiliar with roadways so not always as aware as they should of children on bikes or skateboards.  Speaking of skateboards, Smith says skateboarders should not be riding within two blocks of the town square by town ordinance. Smith suggests that we can prevent someone getting hurt if parents can spend a little time encouraging preventative behaviors.

    Each year, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department sends out a reminder of the right way to release fish when you turn them back into the water. Al Langston of the Game and Fish recently sent out that reminder, so I thought I’d pass it along to you. When the water gets warm this time […]
  • Hauling hay makes me consider ATVs - July 28, 2014
    In my days in the mountains, I’ve seen some horse wrecks that probably should have turned my hair gray prematurely. I’ve had horses go lame on me deep in the backcountry. And I’ve been awakened in the night to the sound of thundering hooves receding down the trail toward the trailer. None of those situations […]
