Have You Paid Your Entry Fees?
Rodeo participants (and their parents) know what I’m talking about when I reference entry fees. Other things have entry fees: road races, athletic competitions and other things of this nature. Today though, I am talking about life, success and the road before you, those kind of entry fees. People these days seem to be in […]

National Vietnam War Veterans Day
The Vietnam war was ongoing for the first 12 years of my life. I watched the war on the CBS Evening News with Walter Cronkite. That was the news source which my family followed while we were growing up. I watched the war go from black and white to “in color” as the 60’s passed […]

With Expanding Technology, Perpetrators of Violent Crime Are More Likely to Get Caught in KCMO
Within eight hours last week, detectives solved the murder of an innocent 71-year-old woman who was driving home from work. Had her murder occurred five years ago, it may never have been solved.

Working Together with Public Works
A favor from Chief Sjolander… I just had a conversation with our Public Works Director here in town. We live and work in a small town where everybody knows one another. I remember our Public Works Director back when he was in high school and I was a rookie officer. I remember him as a […]

Struggling for Words in 2019
This nation has had seven law enforcement officers killed in 2019. Reading this headline from Alabama this morning got me thinking as I sit here in disbelief. I don’t know what to say anymore. I am struggling for the words. Perhaps a thought on why some of us made the decision to work in law […]
