Yep, its that time of the year. We have seen farmers in their fields cutting silage and picking beans. With this time of the season comes several hazards. As the farmers begin their work in the fields, it forces deer on to our roadways. It also increases the amount of combines and other large farm machinery on our roadways. Please slow down, when approaching machinery on the roadways and use caution while passing. Watch for deer primarily around dusk and at night.

Wednesday evening August 1, 2018, an active shooter drill was done at the East Sac County High School in Lake View. Participants in this drill included around 50 people. Participants were teachers, students and community members; fire departments from Lake View, Wall Lake, Sac City, Auburn, Early, Odebolt and Lytton as well as 2- ambulances from Sac City. Ambulances from Lake View, Odebolt, Lake City and the Mercy Air Life helicopter from Sioux City. Law enforcement included the Sac County Sheriff’s Office, Lake View Police Sac City Police and the Buena Vista / Sac County Sheriff’s Emergency Response Team. During the drill, an active shooter was simulated in the high school with 25 victims who were either wounded or deceased. Law enforcement trained on clearing the school, locating the shooter, and then worked with local fire fighters on removing the injured to a triage area located in the large gym. EMS personnel then treated the simulated injuries and transported the injured to the UCC Church in Lake View which acted as a hospital. The drill was a collaborative effort by all emergency services in Sac County. We wish to thank East Sac County Schools for opening their school for us to train in and finding our volunteers. We also want to thank the many people who volunteered their time to serve as our roll players.

These were found north of Lake View 290th east of M-68 sitting in a field drive Thursday night June 7th. Contact us if you know who they belong to.
