  • Cooler months means rethinking alcohol choices

    As summer ends and the impending cooler months arrive, so does the season to consume alcohol. If we are aware of the seasonal influences then our consumption can be less risky. We are fond of football, fall festivals, and parades. Picking pumpkins, having hayrides, or watching football should remain family fun activities. The planners of these events should take care to assure that when alcohol is allowed, there are policies in place to prevent underage drinking and adult over consumption.

The cost, compared to the benefit, would be small indeed. It is estimated that $3 per lineal foot would be the expense. The street would last twenty years and prove of immense advantage to that section of the business district.”’
