Jackson Police Department is cautioning against behaviors through the upcoming holiday period that set residents up for home burglaries.  They advise don’t have deliveries made at your home and left on your doorstep while you are gone, don’t announce your new high-dollar purchases after the holidays by leaving boxes for new TVs, stereos or computers outside your trashcan, don’t talk about an upcoming trip on the social network, avoid leaving valuables inside your vehicle while shopping, and if you put presents under the Christmas tree, place them there at the last minute.  Among the advice of things to do that will discourage burglaries is having exterior holiday lights that not only make the home look festive, but illuminate areas around windows and doors where burglars may otherwise seek entry.  Finally, if you do plan on going somewhere, the police department urges residents to have a neighbor look after items that may appear on your doorstep like newspapers or other deliveries – and let the police department know you will be away.

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 […]
