Jackson Town Council Discusses Cell Phones

While it may not evolve into a city ordinance like the one in Rock Springs which prohibits the use of cell phones when driving, the Jackson Town Council last night discussed the concern.  Mayor Mark Barron says it has become enough of an issue that it warrants discussion by the town’s leaders.  Barron says there currently is a “preponderance of cell phone use” including texting and talking and generally not paying attention to the role of driving a vehicle.  He said he believed the best way of dealing with it at this time was to bring it up in a public setting and have a public discussion about this.  Barron says he would not be in favor of placing further restrictions on the books.  However, he says it needs to be brought to the public’s attention that too often, looking up numbers or checking who is calling, and to a degree simply talking on the cell phone causes a serious distraction for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians.

Things like, “If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor isn’t strong enough to rotate a 42-pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, […]
  • Shoot some skeet if you’re feeling like a crack shot - July 18, 2014
    I shot at a lot of clay pigeons when I was a kid, but I never did it at an organized trap or skeet club. And I’ve shot at a lot of birds, both upland and waterfowl. I may not have been born with a shotgun in my hand, but I picked one up not […]
