Rear-facing safety seats still best protection for youngest passengers

Using rear-facing safety seats for small children in vehicles is still the “best and safest” practice for parents and other caregivers, according to a TexasA&MAgriLife Extension Service program manager based in College Station.

Bev Kellner said although a new rear-facing law passed by this year’s state legislature was vetoed, the best way to protect young children in vehicles remains keeping them in a rearfacing safety seat for as long as the child is within the weight and height limit of the seat.

The Bend News

The rain did come down last Friday night amid thunder, lightning and wind. Some places around the Bend received over three inches, some a little less, but everyone received rain. It was needed very badly.

It came at a good time. There might even be a chance for some more and we are all very thankful for what we received.

School is back in session and of course there is always some who are happy about it and then there is also some who had just as soon it had not. Be sure and watch out for kids getting to school either by walking, driving or riding a bus. Stop for all buses that are loading kids or letting them off and observe the speed limits around the schools. Football will be in full swing again this year as will the band. Attend the games and support your team.

A Wildlife Wife

A couple of weeks ago I posted on my social media accounts some pictures of dead insects my husband brought to me and added the caption, “That’s what it’s like to love and be loved by a wildlife biologist.” Now, these were not just any insects—one was a Hercules rhinoceros beetle and the other was a cicada with its cellophane looking wings. Besides insects, he has brought home or shown me snakes, lizards, turtles, tortoises, various sorts of birds, and a wide variety of four-legged mammalian creatures. Hehas also brought in various parts to show me—hearts, eyeballs, eggs, etc.

The Richland Springs Report

Ready, set, here we go… are you ready for some students? Teachers will start with four days of in-service and students will show up on Friday. I love the excitement of that first day. The kids are bright and perky; looking around for changes and new parking spots. They want their lockers labeled and books put in order.

Everything is a new adventure. That of course wears off, but for those first few weeks; it is a picnic. Please remember, parents, that if you need supplies, most of us have donations from folks in the community.

Nature is not Neat

We have a term, "human nature," that is usually used to describe certain characteristics or traits of humans. It also sort of implies that "human nature" and "Nature" are different. And, although we are undeniably part of "Nature" and the "Natural World" or biosphere along with all other living things, we do have some traits that nothing else in "Nature" does.

The trait that I am thinking of right now is that humans have a thing for neatness or orderliness that nothing else in Nature does.
