No doubt, many parents and Halloween revelers themselves will be putting last-minute touches on their costumes for tomorrow night.  Jackson Hole Fire Marshal Kathy Clay urges those putting together costumes to be sure they are designed with fire safety in mind.  She says children should not have costumes that have long billowing fabric or a trail behind their costumes. She advises revelers to “recognize the fact that we can use candles that are powered by batteries rather than live fire.”  However, she says a lot of people will still have jack-o-lanterns with candles inside. She says if a costume comes in contact with that open flame in the jack-o-lantern, “we’ve got children’s Halloween costumes that are on fire.” Clay urges parents not to send children out with billowing or trailing costumes, and remind there could be jack-o-lanterns with candles in them by their feet.  Clay advises parents to coach their children that should there be a fire incident they should stop, drop and roll.

    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • 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 […]
