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.

    Where did that good old, brown, tan and black camo pattern go? You know what I mean. The pattern duck and goose hunters used to wear all the time. It was just splotches of dark brown, light brown and a little bit of black. Big splotches. I’ve been complaining for years that you can’t find […]
