  • Always handle firearms with care

    Fall brings with it hunting season, and Trimble County residents are urged to follow these gun-safety tips to prevent accidents at home or out in the field.

    Store ammunition and firearms in separate, locked cabinets or in closets that are inaccessible to children.

    Never store a firearm that is loaded. It is best to store it with the action open, or taken down when possible.

    Always handle a firearm as if it were loaded, but always check to see if it is loaded when handling it.

    Although the anticipated fall color was somewhat mixed, the season still brings piles of leaves from our trees and spent shoots from our gardens and flower beds. 

    The way you address this yard waste can have a significant impact on your garden and the environment.
