Living in the land of birding, I have been getting somewhat interested in the activity, but after taking a “bird walk,” I realized I have not even scratched the surface of birding.

LOWER TOWNSHIP – Halloween is quickly approaching, which for many people means celebrating with alcohol. As you carve your pumpkin or pick out a costume this year, keep in mind that one of the best choices you can make is to drive sober or designate a sober driver to get you home safely. 

The Lower Township Police Department is reminding all drivers that “Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving” because every Halloween there are still some people who think they can drive after drinking. Before you take your first sip of alcohol on Oct. 31, figure out who your designated sober driver will be. If you wait until you’re “buzzed” to make a decision, you may decide to drive.
