On Monday, Mayor Tom Arthur proclaimed May 20-26 Safe Boating Week. Looking on as he reads the proclamation aloud are Richard Modesitt, Ken Hauptli and Don Moon of the Wabash Valley Power Squadron and Indiana Conservation Officer Paul Harden.

The proclamation urges boaters to know and practice the law, not drink alcohol or take drugs while operating a boat and to wear a life jacket. Life jackets alone could reduce the number of boating deaths by 80 percent, the proclamation reads.
