School’s Out, Watch Out

school out

Today is the day that most of the valley’s young people have been looking forward to – it’s the first day of summer vacation.  Now that school is out, Jackson Police Chief Todd Smith says drivers on the town’s streets will need to be more attentive for children to be almost anywhere. Smith urges parents to provide their children with some guidance about safe summer behavior.  Among those cautions should be avoiding those areas that are heavily congested with people who may be on vacation here and unfamiliar with roadways so not always as aware as they should of children on bikes or skateboards.  Speaking of skateboards Smith reminds the areas youth that city ordinances prohibit the riding of skateboards on sidewalks within two blocks of the town square in the interest of safety and potential wear to the wooden sidewalks.  Smith suggests that we can prevent someone getting hurt if parents can spend a little time encouraging preventative behaviors.

If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]

  • Tame that recoil - November 25, 2014
    You don’t have to put up with nasty recoil when you’re hunting. Even if you’re hunting our state’s bigger animals, like elk, moose, or even bison, today’s technology can take a lot of the sting out of your hunting rifle. A friend told me he developed a bad flinch while sighting in his .300 Win […]
