Longtime Travis crossing guard, General McKenzie, returned to duty Thursday, September 6. Mr. McKenzie and his daughter, Kim, were hospitalized for more than two months after suffering smoke inhalation during a house fire last December. 

Mr. McKenzie is a Travis fixture, having protected pedestrians around Travis for 18 years, the last eight on the corner of Florence and Highland Streets. He is currently stationed at the intersection of Norma and Beauchamp Streets, but hopes to return to his old post soon. Be sure to say hello and welcome him back when you see him!
