Summer’s Here – Watch For Pedestrians (posted 6/11/2021)
Sublette County Sheriff’s Office
Busy summer months have arrived, and the amount of people in town have as well. The Sublette County Sheriff’s Office is reminding citizens and tourists alike to use caution at all crosswalks. Due to the influx of traffic during our high tourist season we ask that motorists AND pedestrians use caution and follow the below safety tips. In 2019 alone, a pedestrian was killed every 85 minutes in the United States.

Walking Safety Tips:
1. Be predictable. Follow the rules of the road and obey signs and signals.
2. Walk on sidewalks whenever they are available.
3. If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic and as far from traffic as possible.
4. Keep alert at all times; don’t be distracted by electronic devices that take your eyes (and ears) off the road.
5. Whenever possible you should always cross streets at crosswalks or intersections, where drivers expect pedestrians. Look for cars in all directions, including those turning left or right. Wait for vehicles to come to a complete stop before crossing.
6. Never assume a driver sees you. Make eye contact with drivers as they approach to make sure you are seen.
7. Be visible at all times. Wear bright clothing during the day, and wear reflective materials or use a flashlight at night.
8. Watch for cars entering or exiting driveways, or backing up in parking lots.
9. Avoid alcohol and drugs when walking; they impair your abilities and your judgment.

Driving Safety Tips:
1. Look out for pedestrians everywhere, at all times. Safety is a shared responsibility.
2. Be alert for children and animals who may unexpectedly cross without warning.
3. Use extra caution when driving in hard-to-see conditions, such as nighttime or bad weather.
4. Slow down and be prepared to stop when turning or otherwise entering a crosswalk.
5. Yield to pedestrians in crosswalks and stop well back from the cross-walk to give other vehicles an opportunity
to see the crossing pedestrians so they can stop too.
6. Never pass vehicles stopped at a crosswalk. There may be people crossing that you can’t see.
7.N ever drive under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs.
8. Follow the speed limit, especially around people on the street.
9. Follow slower speed limits in school zones and in neighborhoods where children are present.
10. Be extra cautious when backing up—pedestrians can move into your path.

As always stay Safe Sublette County!

Flag Day June 14
Flag Day ceremony in Pinedale June 14 (posted 6/10/2021)

Flag Day USA, Monday, June 14
By Michael Edison, Commander, Pinedale American Legion Post 47

In the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States on June 14, 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. The United States Army also celebrates the U.S. Army birthday on this date; Congress adopted "the American Continental Army" after reaching a consensus position in the Committee of the Whole on June 14, 1775.

In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson issued a proclamation that officially established June 14 as Flag Day; 0n August 3, 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

Flag Day; however, it is at the president's discretion to officially proclaim the observance.

The flag of the United States of America is our nation's symbol and identifies us as Americans. It is the umbrella which represents every underlying aspect of our country. It actually takes on a different context or meaning wherever it is displayed; Public buildings, private homes, sports stadiums, Olympic events, caskets or even the moon. Like any other nation’s flag it does not stand for anything specific. Ask any citizen what our flag means to them and you will get a dozen different responses. Does it represent sacrifice? Absolutely! However, the American flag also stands for our constitution, the unity of our people, the diversity of our nation, the triumph of our accomplishments and the right to protest or to be burned. It is the symbol of freedom many die to defend, rather than a tangible emblem to specifically honor those who gave their lives.

Our sons and daughters, throughout history, died to preserve its meaning but it does not particularly represent them, they represent the flag, which represents our entire country.

"The colors of the pales (the vertical stripes) are those used in the flag of the United States of America; White signifies purity and innocence, Red, hardiness & valor, and Blue, the color of the Chief (the broad band above the stripes) signifies vigilance, perseverance & justice."

The 50 stars stand for America's 50 states, while the 13 red and white stripes represent the 13 colonies.

The current flag, with 50 stars and 13 stripes, was designed in 1958 by 17-year-old high school student, Robert G. Heft, of Lancaster, Ohio. President Dwight D. Eisenhower chose his design out of 1,500 entries.

According to Federal flag laws and regulations, the flag should be displayed from sunrise to sunset, except during inclement weather. It may be displayed 24 hours a day as long as it’s "properly illuminated" while it’s dark out.

If a flag can no longer be used or repaired, it must be destroyed in a respectful manner, such as by burning. It can be washed and dry cleaned if it gets dirty or if it touches the ground and is soiled.

Our local American Legion in Pinedale will have a flag disposal ceremony at the American Legion Park by the Veterans Memorial on Monday, June 14, at 6:00 pm. Please bring your old, tattered or torn flags for proper disposal.
