National Child Passenger Safety Week

Every parent wants the best for their child’s future, and one of the best ways to make sure your child will have a bright future is to be sure that you are correctly using the right car seat for your child and that the seat is correctly installed in your vehicle every time. The problem is that keeping them safe in vehicles isn’t as easy as it might appear. Most parents think they are using their car seat correctly, but unfortunately, at least three out of four car seats are used incorrectly. For a car seat to best protect your child, it must be the one that fits your child, your vehicle, and one that you will use correctly every time you travel.

Bullock Museum honors Shane Turner

Even though he has a binder full of awards and commendations -- and even received a Bronze Star medal -- Sergeant First Class Shane Turner is still quietly modest when discussing his military career, which took him to Operation Desert Shield, Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan). But while the pages and pages of certificates are carefully tucked away in plastic sleeves in a binder, Turner’s US Army uniform, Bronze Star, and helmet are currently on display for public viewing at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin. “It’s a privilege and an honor,” Turner said. “There’s displays from World War II and Vietnam. I’m one of the first soldiers to be on display from Desert Storm, Desert Shield, Iraq and Afghanistan.” Turner said the items will be on display at the museum for 14 months.
