Beware of holiday spiritsPosted Wednesday, December 14, 2011, at 8:34 AM
This is the season to be merry.
Unfortunately, some people get a little too merry, their good cheer artificially created by intoxicants.
Which is why law enforcement agencies across the state are stepping up patrols to nail drunken drivers.
Don't spend your holiday in jail and your January paychecks on court costs and fines. You should be wearing a Santa suit on Christmas Eve, not an orange county inmate jumpsuit.
If you are going to drink, do so responsibly. Make absolutely certain, if you're going to have more than one, that you have a designated driver available. Or call a cab.
Don't let people leave your party intoxicated. Don't let your friends get in a car when they've had too much.
At the Mountain Home News, we want everyone to have a happy holiday season.
Don't mar it with a mistake by alcohol.
