    Children’s car seats, booster seats, and seat belts make all the difference in keeping us safe. Tragically, on average, 2 children under 13 were killed every day in 2016 while riding in cars, SUVs, pickups, or vans.  But think about this: the same year, there were 328 children under the age of 5 saved because they were in car seats.  Make sure your child is in the correct seat and buckled up - every trip, every time.  It is a life-saving measure.

    I’m putting together numbers for a multi-tiered piece. The part I’m currently looking at is shocking to say the least. The numbers I’m referring involve grades 9-12 involvement in just this current Fall sports season. Participation for boys and girls in our six coverage schools (Fairbury, Wilber-Clatonia, Thayer Central, Tri County, Meridian and Diller-Odell) range a great deal.
