SAFELY WALKING AND BIKING - GUIDELINES FOR WALKING, BIKING AND DRIVING
In all 50 states, bicyclists are accorded the same rights and are expected to obey the same laws as drivers of motor vehicles. Bicyclists fare best when they ride predictably and follow the rules of the road.
The following suggestions are offered from a positive desire to help all to “share the road”.
  • Always leave at least 3 feet between the right side of your vehicle and a bicyclist when passing.
  • Always make sure it is safe ahead before passing a bicyclist. No passing should be attempted on blind curves and near the crest of a hill. READ ON...

OUR BEAR HAS A NAME!
It was a fun process to name our bear. First we posted on our website and got a ton of entries. At the annual BBQ we let people vote on their favorite from all the entries. We had a tie between Hawthorne and Garbagio. We had a runoff on Facebook to choose one of the two.
 
The winner is Hawthorne. We had two people with that entry name so they are both winners. Bill Stahl and Emberley Strong both won a $25 gift card to Build-A-Bear. Thank you all for participating.
 
It was a super fun to see everyone get involved.
