No set starter yet at safety for Packers Submitted: 08/06/2014
Story By Newswatch 12

GREEN BAY - Ha Ha Clinton-Dix was drafted in the first round by the Green Bay Packers to help shore up the safety position, but second-year pro Micah Hyde appears to have the early edge to start in the secondary.

Either way, the Packers hope they will have two young impact players at a position that failed to get an interception in 2013.

Veteran Morgan Burnett is the starter at one of the safety positions, though he has missed some time with ankle and oblique injuries. That has allowed Hyde and Clinton-Dix to see some snaps together on the first team in training camp.

Hyde has impressed the coaches quickly with his versatility. He made a nice interception on a red zone drill on Wednesday. Clinton-Dix was a two-year starter at Alabama.

NORTHWOODS - Children went back to school across the Northwoods Tuesday. That's why it's important to make sure you're prepared for anything.

Emergency workers say it's important to have a plan in place for all possible emergency situations. That plan should include emergency contacts, safe meeting locations, and emergency kits in homes and cars. Officials say taking time to plan and practice is crucial.

"Look at things before it happens," says Dawn Robinson, Oneida County Emergency Management Program Assistant. "Make sure your family, your loved ones, your neighbors, make sure everyone has a plan and practice those plans. That way when something does happen, it becomes more, that you know what to do, so be prepared as much as possible, and practice."

Part of being prepared is communication and knowing who to contact. Officials encourage parents to make sure that schools have up-to-date emergency contact information, especially for small children.
