This Vintage MN DNR Ice Safety Video Still Applies Today [VIDEO]

I'm guessing this video might be back from the early 1990's and I had to laugh a bit when I first started watching it.  But believe it or not, I actually learned a few things from it.  It's a good overview for ice safety and guidlines for getting out there.  A lot of people are anxious to get out soon, but remember, we need a solid 4" before walking out!

Parents, Take Some Time With Your Children To Talk About Safety and Visit The Jacob Wetterling Resource Center Here

I didn't think we would ever get an answer about what happened to Jacob Wetterling.  When we first heard that his remains were found this weekend, a lot of emotions came back from years ago.  It's even sadder now knowing the truth, but at least the family finally has closure.   It's a good time to sit down with your kids and go over different scenarios and teach them to be safe.
