Avoid tragedies

Friday, December 20, 2013

Dear Editor,

December is here and it is time to put up the Christmas decorations. Make sure your ladder is safe.

Never plug in a 6,000-volt wire into a 2 volt receptacle. This could damage power lines and set your hair on fire.

Use common sense when attaching ornaments to the tree. Too much weight could make the whole project fall over and you could be suffocated.

Do not leave strands of tinsel laying around on the floor. The cat could try to eat them and choke to death.

Never drink and hang decorations at the same time.

By thinking logically, holiday tragedies can be avoided.

Steve Stramel,

McCook, Nebraska
