Officer Scott Barnes (white shirt) and Michael Burgess talk to fourth grade Cub Scouts about the rules of the road. The police department stresses the importance of wearing helmets. According to department literature, a helmet reduces the risk of serious head and brain injury by as much as 88 percent. Unfortunately, fewer than 20 percent of bicyclists nationwide report wearing helmets. More on bike safety on page 9. (Photo courtesy of Sue Struss)
