We want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. Now we know many folks are looking forward to the New Year but we have a few requests to start the year off right.

If you choose to do anything that might impair your abilty to drive or get so impaired you can't operate a wheel barrow PLEASE get a ride. Call Uber, Lyft, a cab, your cousin or better yet just crash on your friends couch. Trust us when we say we haven't met anyone that just loves to ride in the back of one of our cars handcuffed after a long night of partying. Save us the time and yourself alot of problems.

We also know that we have some folks that just HAVE to shoot off fireworks. We get it they are awesome to watch and everyone in the neighborhood expects you to shoot them off. Just be respectful and limit the amount you shoot for the sake of your neighbors and pets who run into the next county over when the loud booms go off.

We apprecite all the support you give and we look foward to an awesome New Year. Oh and GO DAWGS!!!!!!!!!!!!
