While motorcycles are a fun, fuel efficient method of transportation, it is important to be aware of the safety risks that come with riding these bikes.

You’re giving back to the community. When you volunteer you are helping those who really need it.  You are helping strengthen your community.

Summer is a great chance to have a get together, be it sitting around the pool during the day or even around a fire at night. It’s a great time for weddings, reunions, and all things in between.   If you’re an adult these events will sometimes have alcohol involved, and if you’re the host, then you are responsible for your guests. What exactly does this mean?  It means that if you are the host and your guests are drinking, it is your responsibility to ensure they do not drive or drink too much.  Here are a few suggestions on how to ensure your event goes off without any issues. 1)      Have anyone that has driven to the event location leave their keys with an attendant if they are having a drink or two. 2)      Arrange to have a couple designated drivers / or taxi’s to bring people home when they need 3)      Have snacks around so that people are not drinking on an empty stomach.  ...
