Attention Deer Hunters

DEER HUNTERS: Our conservation agents remind deer hunters to do their part to protect the image of hunters by not dumping deer carcasses at bridges, in waterways, or along roads. 

Not only is it unsightly, but it’s also illegal. Hunters who process their own deer can help slow the spread of Chronic Wasting Disease by placing carcass parts in trash bags and placing them in a trash service or landfill. Thanks. – Joe@MDC

From the city of Archie





From the Clinton Police Department

The Clinton Police Department would like to announce that the department has been chosen as the recipient of a very generous donation from the Lindon Q. Skidmore Foundation. The grant, in the amount of $15,000, was awarded to aid the department in making technology upgrades. In the ever-changing world of electronics, upgrades are inevitable, but they come at a price and small-town law enforcement usually lags behind in acquiring these valuable investigative tools. Chief Miller and the members of the Clinton Police Department would like to thank the Lindon Q. Skidmore Charitable Foundation for continuing to support law enforcement, especially the efforts of Kyle Sisney and Tony Twyman of the foundation.
