A message from Sheriff Bob Davis

In the Montgomery County fair parade I was in front of the Veteran of Foreign Wars Honor Guard. It was inspiring to see that most people still stand and put their hand over their heart as the American flag goes by.

A message from Montgomery City Police Chief Phil Ahern - Scammers who want to get in your wallet

Something for nothing.  Sounds good, doesn’t it?  But, it’s hardly ever true.  You can’t win the lottery, any lottery, if you don’t play.  Everything costs; whether you pay or someone else pays.  This is a topic I’ve written about on past occasions but it may bear repeating.
