A good-natured deputy

-A A +A

Dear Sheriff Smith,
As we were driving through Chiefland on Feb. 19, around 2:30 p.m., we experienced a blowout on our right front tire. Well, you can imagine our concern driving from Wisconsin (Packer country) to Orlando with not only our luggage but our children's luggage, as well. Just think about the unpacking of the trunk, alone.
My husband flagged down Sgt, Carl Rogers, who stopped to help, and help he did. He certainly went the extra mile for us. He unloaded our trunk, changed the tire and called dispatch to see if they knew where to get a replacement tire for us. A tire was located in Ocala. Thanks to the efforts of all involved.
We tried to compensate him for his time, but he refused the offer. Therefore, we would like to donate $50 to any fundraiser or charity that Sgt. Rogers recommends. We were very impressed with his professionalism, as well as his good nature. What an asset he is to you and your community.
We will be driving through your beautiful and friendly city next year, stopping at one of our favorite Bealles Outlet Stores, and, hopefully, only waving at Sgt. Rogers as he patrols Chiefland.
Thank you,
