Use caution A motorist had a particularly bad scare on Sprtlce Street this week as she stopped for a pedestrian to cross in the crosswalk and watched the approaching vehicle from behind go around her narrowly missing the pedestrian crossing. The motorist said she has observed the same oc- currence on Magnolia Street - either the people don't realize the car is stopped for a pedestrian and maybe thinking they are going to be making a right or what - drivers must be aware of the surroundings before passing on the right. While it is legal to pass a car on the right if the road is wide enough without entering into the bike lane, it is not legal if the other vehicle is waiting for a pedestrian to cross. Drivers who pass on the right when a pedestrian is crossing can be cited for Unsafe Turning or Failure to Yield to a Pedestrian. If a police officer observes a driver passing on the right with a pedestrian in the crosswalk the driver will be stopped. It is worth mentioning also, if you are the pedes- trian waiting to cross don't start crossing the street until you are absolutely sure the driver of the ap- proaching vehicle sees you.

Letter to Dear Editor, The Gridley Area Chamber of Commerce looked into placing the American flags in the downtown area for Memorial Day and discovered that the previous holes to place the flags are no longer available with the downtown street beautification project completed two years ago. Once the Daddow Park renovation is completed the Chamber of Commerce will look into the possibil- ity of establishing places to display the flags for future holidays.

Heat illness prevention starts with avoiding excess ex- posure to hot temperatures. Complete outdoor tasks in the cooler morning hours and stay indoors during the afternoon heat. Keep in mind health and fitness influences as well as exogenous factors (medications, drugs, alcohol, etc.) can contribute to heat illness. Proper hydration is achieved by drink- ing water throughout the day and limiting caffein- ated energy drinks and soda which dehydrate the body.
