Annika Halvorson, left, Carli Bloom and Claire Fontaine are sounding an alert on two crosswalks in Thomson Township they consider unsafe. They recently stood on the Canosia Road crosswalk by Northridge Park.

Three Esko Girl Scouts are hoping to make the world a safer place for pedestrians, starting in their own backyard.

Annika Halvorson, Claire Fontaine and Carli Bloom, along with Troop 4079 leaders Sybil Halvorson and Joe Fontaine, reached out to the Thomson Township Board of Supervisors in a letter last week, asking for the board's support to make two particular crosswalks safer.
