"New Boater Safety Law"

Late summer, the DNR passed an ordinance that allows dogs over 1-year-old to drive a PWC. They can do so without a Boater Safety Certificate, if wearing an approved life jacket and accompanied by an adult. Here is Stout (as in Guinness Stout) – the first dog to qualify accompanied by Jack Byrne whose father, John, lives on East Lakeshore Drive.

The Sheriff’s Department was asked if this law really made sense. The response was that, "Dogs surely couldn’t drive worse than some of those we have seen out there." (This is all tongue in cheek, but it seems that the quote from the Sheriff’s Department makes sense!)
