Safety first

Sergeant Buzz Hodges of the Maple Park Police Department hands Zack Gould, 13, an unloaded weapon to examine. Hodges and Officer Andy Rissman, along with Ted and Theo Mikrut of the National Rifle Association, held gun safety classes for kids on Dec. 29 at the Village Hall. There were classes for older as well as younger kids. They learned things to do and what not to do when coming in contact with guns. It is part of an ongoing program to protect families from gun-related injuries or death. Photo by John DiDonna
