Preventing forest fires

Posted

A TEDDY bear has a special place on the back of Eugene “Tex” Bain’s Yamaha motorcycle. Although his name is not Smokey Bear, “Teddy” also promotes “preventing forest fires,” as Bain helps the forest rangers and some local fire departments — “Always be careful with fire,” he says. A deer named Antlers claims the front fender of Bain’s bike, along with a pair of six-point antlers plus many stickers on the windshield — one that reads, “Salute Troops Every Day.” Fur decorates Bain’s helmet as another reference to Smokey Bear’s motto: “Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires.”
