Sheriff’s Message, Week of November 20th

Community Friends,

An old adage wrongfully attributed to Winston Churchill states a pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. What he did say was “For myself I am an optimist—it does not seem to be much use being anything else….” A life filled with optimism produces less life stresses, which has shown to prevent chronic disease, and helped people live longer, happier, and more productive lives. The recent election results, regardless of the chosen candidate or ballot question has produced many pessimists on both sides; I however, have chosen to be an optimist. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of November 13th

Community Friends,

Our Search & Rescue need to be our heroes this month. On Nov 4th they searched for 77 year old Larry Hyatt in Silver Springs.  That ended tragically; on Nov 14th it was a missing person in the Como Mountains who was left abandoned by friends. He was found safe after a cold night and arrested for warrants; Nov 16th was the 16 year old Silver Springs’ female who was found the next day; and on Nov 18th, it was the 11 year old insulin dependent boy search who was found about 1:00 a.m. Read more ›

Tennant, Laura

“When the law no longer protects you from the corrupt, but protects the corrupt from you – you know our nation is doomed,” wrote Ayn Rand, “Atlas Shrugged.”

Community Friends,

We dealt with some serious juvenile issues this week. It seems that two separate underage drivers decided to take their parent’s vehicles and elude law enforcement. Fortunately, in Fernley, none of the four juveniles, including the driver, was seriously hurt after it rolled over on a dirt road at about 3:00 a.m. In Silver Springs, we were able to safely stop another eluding vehicle as a second patrol vehicle came from Fernley to stop it. You can’t out run a radio. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of October 9th

Community Friends,

We recovered a firearm this week. Its story is simple, at least in the eyes of law enforcement. This firearm was stolen from its lawful owner by a convicted felon who broke into the home. Then this convicted felon had the audacity to transfer the firearm to his drug dealer without first doing a background check. Now, it gets worse.  Because of the “drug dealer loop hole,” the dealer transferred the firearm to another convicted felon without a background check. It was here that we recovered the firearm in a hidden home cache. Read more ›

Sheriff’s Message, Week of October 2nd

Community Friends,

A three war veteran (WWII, Korea, and Vietnam) came in this week with copies of email conversations with someone from “Bank of America.” George wanted to find them. Explaining why it was impossible, I asked the heart wrenching question: “Did you send them money?” George sent $4,500, which is a substantial amount for him. I showed him the email address is a luxury New York City apartment building and not a corporate office, the phone number is in Texas, which is probably an untraceable router to an overseas number, and the email writer lacks proper English grammar skills.
