Safety lesson



Safety City program Coordinator Perry McLeod on Thursday shows Logan Grimes, 6, (left) and Sasha Santiago, 6, how they should listen for trains at a railroad crossing. Safety City, a portable, hands-on safety education playground allowed first-graders and kindergartners to learn fundamental safety lessons.

Mr. McLeod, who is with the South Carolina Department of Public Safety, was at Clearwater Elementary School teaching pupils safety at home and when riding bicycles.
