Please be aware that due to the slow moving warm front coming our way, black ice may be a factor. The weather channel defines black ice as "a thin coat of highly transparent ice. The reason it is transparent is because it blends in with road pavements since it is so thin, making it nearly impossible to see. It's called black ice since it looks black, like the color of the road pavement it forms on." If you encounter black ice, remain calm and avoid overreacting. The general rule is to do as little as possible and allow the car to pass over the ice. Do not hit the brakes, and try to keep the steering wheel straight. Below is a video of a vehicle that encountered black ice and slid into a Park Hills police cruiser. We are glad both driver's in this video are ok.

Please use caution today and this evening. If you do not have to travel, stay home. Hopefully, everyone got their bread and milk.

Wilder Police night shift officer catches video of Santa's sleigh last night over Wilder.

Is your house number clearly visible at night? Is it visible during the day? Do you have a house number? Many people do not have house numbers at all, never mind have house numbers that are clearly visible from the street. This makes it very tough for Police, Fire and EMS vehicles to find your house in an emergency and can delay a needed response. Here are some tips to properly display your house number: •Place large, easy to read numbers on an area of your house most visible from the street. •If your house is set back from the street, make sure you have numbers on a mailbox, post, or fence etc. •Make sure the material you use will not fade or wear easily from weather. •Choose colors that will not blend into the background they are displayed on. Can you read the number on the third picture? Please consider the above tips! Thank you!
