Young Drivers and Being Prepared on the Road

Young Drivers and Being Prepared on the Road

So Taylor turned 16 this past December and is out on the road by himself sometimes. Granted right now it is not that far from home, but as he gets older he will go farther I’m sure.

Water safety is always important. That’s me in the front as a little girl (mid 70’s) – I LOVED my striped life jacket (because everyone else had those plain orange ones).

Change Your Clock Change Your Battery

The end of daylight-savings time is almost here. On November 7 it will be time to fall back. For years now we have been changing our smoke alarm batteries each time we change the clocks.

Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving

Buzzed Driving Is Drunk Driving

Another holiday weekend is here and that means, sadly, that there will be people drinking and driving. How many times have you heard someone say “oh I’m not drunk, I’ve just got a little buzz” – well folks, that is the same thing!  Did you know that in 2008, just over the Labor Day holiday weekend, 194 people were killed … Continue Reading →
