Slow down, kids at play

Posted by Lucy

Residents in Presho with small children have expressed concerns with regards to vehicles traveling too fast along streets used by children walking to and from the Presho City Park and Pool.  
At the May city council meeting, it was discussed that another 15 mph speed limit sign needed  to be added to Willow Street at the alley west of the Methodist Church to remind drivers of the reduced speed limit by the park and pool.  Signs are already posted on Fir Ave., north and south of the pool, but families and day care providers along Fir Ave., are still witnessing vehicles traveling too fast along the street.
According to statue, the speed limit on all residential streets within the city limits is 25 mph unless posted.  School zones and other areas where children are present such as parks, ball fields and pools are 15 mph.
Presho City Council member Angela Ehlers, who also lives on Fir Ave, said drivers need to be aware of the reduced speed zones in areas where children gather.
“Kids are going to the pool or park to play, and drivers need to be aware and extra alert,” Ehlers said.  
The city of Presho doesn’t have a law enforcement officer to enforce the posted speed limits but residents can still call the Lyman County Sheriff’s office to report drivers not obeying traffic laws.
“If they can identify the vehicle or the driver, we can visit with them and if that doesn’t stop the problem, residents can also file an official complaint against the driver,” said Sheriff Steve Manger.  “Many times once we talk to the offender the issue will stop.”
With the wheat harvest getting underway, Ehlers also wanted to remind producers that they are encouraged to use the truck route to the local elevator and avoid Presho’s Main Street.  
“Fully loaded trucks are hard on Main Street and are also difficult to stop,” said Ehlers.  “You never know when a kid will dart out into the street.”
The truck route is located on the west side of Presho and turns onto Railway Street near the cemetery.  Truckers can also access the elevator on the east side of Presho using 2nd street, then N. Maple to Railway Street.

Posted by Lucy

Ryan and Lorlen Husman’s son Raylan, age 1, didn’t stand still long enough to determine the height of the corn in a field at Husman’s farm southwest of Kennebec Sunday night, but brothers
Griffin (5), who is shorter than the corn,  and Easton (10), demonstrate that the 2016 corn crop is more than knee high by the 4th of July!
Note the steel post  with black marks, on the left-hand side of the photo.  The Husman brothers are tracking the growth of the corn by marking the height every Sunday evening.  The corn grew a foot from June 18th to June 25th.
