I want to recognize Deputy Frank Hardin for an outstanding job. I was driving eastbound on Main Street when I saw an officer pushing another vehicle up and over the railroad bridge to the gas station. I pulled over and asked the deputy's name then applauded him on the good deed.

The last time I saw an officer do that, it was over 20 years ago.  It may or not be standard procedure but when I called Mayor Smith he also said that it was rare to see an officer do that anymore. I agreed with Smitty's suggestion to recognize deputy Hardin at the next City Council meeting.

I would also like to give gratitude to Capt. Lance Clark for an outstanding job protecting us and training honest and caring officers.
