To the Editor,

In response to the letter by Kip Adams, I moved to this great little area about 12 years ago. I came here with an ego the size of Mount Snow and a mouth even bigger.

I had a horrible attitude and terrible work ethic. My big mouth eventually caught up with me and I had a few run-ins with our local law enforcement, both Dover and Wilmington. I was always very vocal, loud, obnoxious, and out of control.

Both departments, whether it was in Dover or Wilmington, were not only professional they were very caring as well. Over the years I have learned to keep my big mouth shut, drive the speed limit, and never get in the car if I have had too much to drink. I have, on many occasions, gotten advice from Mark Denault in Wilmington. Bobby Edwards has always lent me his ear and his advice when I needed it. These guys put on a bulletproof vest to go to work, they are always there when one of us needs them, when the community has a natural disaster they are always there in whatever form they are needed. I still have a big mouth but I have learned to use it in a different way.

My point is this, if you don’t want a speeding ticket, don’t speed - or take the MOOver. If you don’t want a DWI, don’t drink and drive. These men and women are doing exactly what they are supposed to do.

Now that I am older and a small business owner in this valley I am very proud of not only the job they all do, but the role models they are as well.

From my business partner and myself, we both want to thank both departments for all they do for this valley. Keep up the good work.
