Thanks to those who protect, serve

— — I would like to thank Deputy C.K. Lester and Sgt. G.W. Woods of Mercer County Sheriff’s office. Thank you for responding quickly to the incident in Brushfork on New Year’s Eve/New Year’s morning. You both were very supportive, professional and kind. I believe in giving credit where it is due and you both are due with the credit of taking care of the situation. Thank you for your advice and respect.

Every law enforcement officer puts his or her own life at risk every time they go on duty. So I thank you for your service, each and every one of you, each and every day. Thank you Deputy Lester and Sgt. Woods.

I cannot leave out our fire departments and EMTs. They also put their lives on the line daily so thank you. May this new year be a true blessing to each and every one of you who serve our county and state.

Tammy Byers
