Tonight we honor and thank Sgt John Gonzalez who is retiring after 32 years of service with the Department of Public Safety. Sgt Gonzalez spent 24 years as a public information officer for DPS. For most of us, John Gonzalez is the face of the DPS on the South Plains.
I want to invite you to come out to Mackenzie Park baseball fields this Saturday, Sept. 22 at 8 a.m., and join me in the American Diabetes Association's 25th Anniversary "Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes."
We can never forget the lessons of 9/11. The images of the Twin Towers being struck, the devastation at the Pentagon and the wreckage of American flight 93 are chilling reminders of the attack on our nation that day.
Yesterday KCBD reported the story of Lubbock resident Ken Harris who was stopped by a DPS Trooper for expired registration but didn't get a ticket. Thank you, to Trooper Welsh and to Ken Harris for reminding us our world is made better one act of kindness at a time.
