Please Be Careful

I’ve been hosting the morning news on either KNCO Newstalk 830 or Star 94FM (Remember Michelle and Tom in the Morning?) for the better part of two decades.  And too many years, we have an accidental drowning at the Yuba River ..maybe outside South Fork…or the town of Washington.  It is supposed to get toasty hot this weekend, and my wife, Roxanne, and I just took a road trip for Mother’s Day and cruised the Yuba from Sierra City back to town.  It is wide..it is fast…and very dangerous right now.  Please be safe and use extra caution around the rivers right now…and for that matter, all year long.  No need to put the lives of your friends and family in danger, along with first responders.
