Thanks to the deputy and all the others who were involved

At around the first of the New Year, my home was broken into on Slabtown Road, Mount Savage. My car and some other personal belongings were stolen while I was sleeping.

Deputy Simpson was called and handled the case from beginning to end. My car was found and located on Allegany Street in Frostburg. A gentleman by the name of Tom Pierce found my stolen wallet and called the deputy sheriff who located my car just four days after it was stolen.

Deputy Simpson personally came to my home to tell me my car had been found. I realize that this could have been done by a simple phone call. However, he had the courtesy to let me know personally, which I greatly appreciate.

If I had my way I would have him nominated for Deputy Sheriff of the Year at the Sheriff’s Office. This helped create a great faith in the local sheriff’s department for me.

I want everyone to know that I don’t hate the people who stole from me, and I feel sorry that they have to resort to breaking and entering the home of others.

I do not wish any ill will towards those who stole from me and do not want the Lord to punish them. However, I would hope that He would give them an opportunity for salvation in Christ.

I still believe that even though these crimes happen, that there are still many great people in our nation, whom are law-abiding citizens. Again, I want to thank anyone else involved in this investigation.

  • President and Obamacare: Who needs Congress?

    Being a fellow from a small town like Cumberland I don’t always really understand what’s going on in Washington. But I have watched a few houses being built over the years. I even helped some with one house, but my brother fired me from that work pretty quickly, mainly because it was his house being built.

  • It’s a secret It’s a secret

    Could someone enlighten us about why not even the names of the two entities bidding on development of the Footer Dye Works building can be divulged?
    A Times-News article about the bids included an explanation from a lawyer for the attorney general’s office about the need to keep the names and other information secret at this time. Despite that, the logic of not divulging at least a little more information escapes us.
