Is your house number clearly visible from the street? Seconds count in an emergency! That’s why it’s important that your house is clearly marked for emergency personnel.
* Protect your family and your property by having large house numbers with a contrasting background. Firefighters, police officers, and paramedics will be able to find you faster when your home is properly marked.
* Attach numbers to the home and NOT a door. Doors can be opened which will make the markings n...o longer visible.
* If your driveway is long, also post your house number on BOTH sides of a mailbox or sign pole at the end of the driveway near the road.
* Be sure to keep the numbers visible by trimming trees and bushes.
Simply put, ensure that assistance coming from any direction is easily able to identify your house number!
** School Bus Safety **
Recently, we have been receiving complaints about people passing school buses which are actively picking up or dropping off kids (stop s...ign out, red lights on, etc). As a reminder, courtesy of the Wisconsin DOT:
Drivers must stop on the street or highway 20 feet or more from any school bus that has stopped and is flashing red warning lights.
• This applies both to vehicles approaching from the rear and from the opposing lanes.
• All lanes of traffic must stop for the school bus, except in opposing lanes if the highway is divided with a center median.
• No vehicle may proceed until the bus resumes motion and has turned off the red warning lights.
• The stop arm on the bus is an added communication to other drivers, but the lack of an extended stop arm is not reason to pass a bus whose red lights are flashing.
A vehicle owner can be cited when the driver of a car passes a school bus illegally. A law enforcement officer need not witness this violation if the school bus driver reports it to the law enforcement agency within 24 hours. Fines can be quite high for illegally passing a school bus, but the risk of hitting a child is even higher.
As an example, on Woodale Av between Cardinal Ln and Velp Av, there is an eastbound lane, a westbound lane and a center lane with no median divider. If a school bus is actively picking up or dropping off (stop sign, red lights, etc), you must stop.
Remember, these rules are in place for a reason. Help us keep everyone safe!

The good news is that the Pinewood Park ice rink is ready to use! The bad news is the bitter cold means that the rink will be open limited hours for the remainder of the winter break. Beginning tomorrow (Thursday), the warming shelter will be open Noon to 5:00 p.m. Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The shelter will be closed New Year's Day. The rink will re-open for regular hours (pending weather and ice conditions) after the holiday. For location and information, visit:
Winter break is here, and the fresh snow means plenty of opportunities for fun while the kids are out of school.
