Bookmiller fights on for Ossian park fence

Ossian firefighter Ric Bookmiller again approached the Ossian Town Council about lining the Archbold-Wilson park with a fence to prevent possible drownings, and though the board wouldn't commit, it did express possible support for installing a lifeline system, in which a floatation device is attached to a rope and posted around the pond.

Steve Gerber, a former conservation officer, discussed his own lifeline model, pictured below. Learn more in the Tuesday, Nov. 12, News-Banner.

Regardless of the ultimate decision, the Centers for Disease Control has printed the following methods to reduce the risk of drowning.
