Jackson Police Urge Caution Tonight

October 31, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Town of Jackson No Comments
trick-or-treat

Halloween is a night of “goulies and ghosties and things that go bump in the night.”  Lieutenant Cole Nethercott says it is that latter fright the police department would like to avoid – particularly when it involves young trick-or-treaters.  He points out that the children often get very excited as they are out after dark and they sometimes cannot see well out of some of their costumes.  He adds, “Most importantly, we are concerned with kids darting into traffic; so we just ask motorists to be extra vigilant.” Nethercott urges parents to be sure the costumes their children are wearing do not impair their ability to see where they are going.  He also says children should be advised not to eat any of the goodies they collect until it has been screened at home. He suggests it is a good idea to make sure your children either have a snack or they’re well fed before going out to prevent them from wanting to get into their candy before you’re able to inspect it. Nethercott suggests costumes should have some sort of reflective material incorporated into them, and children should carry some sort of a flashlight or glow stick to make them more easily seen as they make their rounds.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    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 […]
