Readers' forum: Promote water safety

Published: Tuesday, Aug. 9 2011 12:00 a.m. MDT

On the front page of the local section on Aug. 8 there is a photo of 13 folks from the Outdoor Retailers Convention trying out a giant stand up paddleboard on Jordanelle Reservoir. None of them are wearing life jackets.

Utah has had too many accidental drownings this year. Outdoor retailers should promote safety.
