SGT Dan Thom popped into studio today.  He offered a thank you to the people of Magic Valley from law enforcement.  This is one of the few places in the country where there is still an old fashioned respect for the men and women behind the badge.

Some of the local law enforcers were pouring coffee just as I walked in and I told them how it made me feel safe to see them.

I can remember a day many years ago on the Atlantic Coast when I was driving to a remote broadcast at 4:30 A.M. and stopped at a convenience store for a cup of coffee.  Some of the local law enforcers were pouring coffee just as I walked in and I told them how it made me feel safe to see them.  They seemed surprised.  22-hundred miles to the west and I think they would be pleasantly surprised by the reception they would get from the general public.
