Jackson Police Urge Caution Tonight

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 lunar eclipse, and me without my camera - April 18, 2014
    Monday night, or more accurately early Tuesday morning, there was a total lunar eclipse. And being the experienced nature photographer I am, you’d think I was ready with my camera. But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
