December is Safe Toys and Gifts Month

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, hospital emergency rooms treated an estimated 251,700 toy-related injuries in 2010 throughout the United States.  72% were to people less than 15 years of age. Additionally, in 2007 alone, toymakers recalled over 19 million toys worldwide because of safety concerns such as lead paint and small magnets.

The First Annual Roof of the Rockies Jeep Jamboree

There are always a collection of good stories from every Jeep Jamboree that has taken place since 1953, when Mark A. Smith and a group of Rotarians started taking Jeep trips across the legendary Rubicon Trail. And so it was six decades on with the first annual Roof of the Rockies Jeep Jamboree, held in Snowmass, Colorado, earlier this year. This was one of 32 Jeep Jamborees Smith's company led in 2013, in locations across the USA.

As 129 Jeep vehicles took to the high country trails in the Snowmass/Aspen region southwest of Denver, close to 300 participants…

2014 Ram 1500 is Motor Trend's 2014 Truck of the Year for the Second Consecutive Year!!

One of the questions we ponder at any Motor Trend "of the Year" event is whether a vehicle is a game-changer. While that term?that little bit of corporate execu-babble?is overused and slightly sickening, it really is significant. For years, truck manufacturers did what was safe and didn't upset the status quo. But two years ago Ford rocked the boat with the twin-turbo V-6 EcoBoost. Last year, Ram rocked it again with air suspension and an eight-speed automatic. We were hoping GM would continue the trend and blow us away with something even bigger. We simply weren't…

Children should be able to sit with their back against the seat, knees bending at the edge of the seat and feet touching the floor. The lap belt should be positioned low across their hips and upper thighs with the shoulder belt across their chest and collarbone. Depending…
