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.

    In my opinion, everybody should go hunting each weekend of the hunting season. You don’t have to go after elk or deer every time. Change it up a little. Hunt doves on the first weekend, then try to get a blue grouse or two the next. Later in the fall, you can start working duck […]
