Reminder: Take care to avoid hitting deer
Next week, after daylight-saving time expires on Sunday, commuters and other county residents who must take trips will be traveling at a different time of day than usual.
So they should be aware that they could be in danger of running into deer.
These days, deer are a danger every month of the year. But the months of October, November and December are the most perilous.
Drivers should follow the advice offered by Leavenworth County sheriff's officers to scan the road in front of their vehicles, and be particularly vigilant at dusk and dawn.
