Todd Bennett

Todd is a very fine person who I have known for 30+ years. I was best friends with his Dad... I've never had a better friend and sadly he left too soon. But when I see Todd, his Dad comes to me, and I reassure Terry that I keep an eye on him. We can all be proud of Todd Bennett. He is the best person to represent our fine city. Sincerely, his other Dad.

Elizabeth Skelding (2)

I nominate Elizabeth Skelding for police hero of the year. I believe that, when she was faced with having to save a woman from a horrible domestic violence situation, she had to make a quick decision about when and what to do without much time. Her training allowed her to react appropriately...she went beyond the call of duty to protect the victim and also herself.
