Caution a requirement during this time of year
After bidding farewell to summer, our community's young people have picked up their school supplies, tossed their backpacks over their shoulders and returned to the classroom.
As they hop on their bicycles or walk down the sidewalk or cruise in their vehicle on their way to class, we all must be a little more aware. We must watch out for their safety, regardless of whether they're on bicycles, on foot or in cars.
Often, youngsters aren't paying attention despite our repeated warnings that they should so it's up to all of us to help them be safe.
Let's work to ensure that this school year is a safe and productive one for all of our children.
