Yep! Ladies, you are SO right. 'Specially when 'Offser Dan' does a foot pursuit! Unless he's chasin' HUMPTY DUMPTY!

Wasn't impressed with Kelliher and his condescending attitude, especially when no one was looking. Wall did the right thing cleaning house. What the heck is Steamboat P.D. thinking hiring Kelliher?? They should of asked around a bit more. We got a great Sheriff's Department now in which I believe will only get better serving the people with our Sheriff Gary Wall, leading.

Well, let's ee here. The other candidat for Sheriff was a Steamboat Springs Officer, correct? The Steamboatians rejected hime and elected Sheriff Wall. Depitty Dan is on the Routt County force, and Sheriff Wall releases him. (With me so far?) Now he winds up on the 'Boat's' force. Hmmmm Birds of a feather..... Very Interesting!
