"A friend's dad was a Pierce County deputy, and he just kind of turned me onto it in junior high. He just said it was the best job you could have." He completed an internship with the Cheney, Wash., Police Department in a community about 30 yrs. experience Free estimates Locally owned , Tear-offs with no mess , Hand nailed, architect & 3-tab shingles , Snap-lock, Hi-rib metal &fiat roofs . All workmanship guaranteed CCB 110950 the size of Lebanon. During his career, "I would like to move up as far as I can," Hanni said. "That's why I went to school." As an officer, he thinks he will enjoy most "just getting out and just being able to contact people and see how things are going in- stead of going call to call like big- ger cities," he said. "Friday was his first day on the road, he said. Among the calls were a dispute over an iPod, an eviction and a couple of alarms that were accidental. Hanni enjoys camping, hunt- ing and fishing, he said. He was a volunteer coach at Sumner High School for the past three years, and he'd like to get back into coach- ing. He is married to Janelle. They have no children, but they have two dogs. He is enjoying Sweet Home so far, he said. "I think it's a nice little city. I haven't seen all that much of it. As of now, I like it." And the other officers he has met so far seem like good people, he said. Johnson grew up in Newburg; Olympia, Wash.; and North Plains. He graduated from high school in 541-367-2293 REAL ESTATE Rocky Hanni Hillsboro. He served four years as an infantryman in the Marine Corps, which included seven- month deployments to eastern Asia and Afghanistan. He was based at Camp Pend- leton, Calif. In his deployment to Asia, he trained with military per- sonnel in Japan, South Korea and the Philippines. He visited a vari- ety of other countries on liberty, including Hang Kong. His second deployment was to Afghanistan where he spent time on foot patrols and saw a lot of contact with the en- emy during the first few months. After his discharge from the Marines, he settled in Albany and attended Oregon State University, where he studied industrial engi- neering. Matt Johnson He decided that was boring and switched to sociology, crime and justice, Johnson said. Sweet Home Police Department hired him before he started those courses. "I thought I was going to love an office job after four years in the Marines," Johnson said. "I kind of felt like when I was doing indus- trial engineering, everyone was in it just to make money." He said he felt stagnant, but he didn't want to re-enlist. He talked to a few people and went on a ridealong with an officer in Bea- verton. The officer in Beaverton "did a lot of behavioral profiling," Johnson said, adding that he found that interesting because he had been through some similar training in the Marines in a combat hunt- ers course. The course included biometrics, profiling, facial tics to help detect lying and more, he said. "Officers use that a lot. It re- ally appealed." He started looking for work in law enforcement and learned that Sweet Home was hiring. He researched Sweet Home and ap- plied. He is most interested in the investigation side of police work and would like to work as a de[ec- tive eventually, Johnson said. He had driven through Sweet Home before on the way to Hoo- doo, he said. "I like it. It's a nice small town, kind of like North Plains, where I grew up." He likes how the officers know so many people on a first-name ba- sis, he said. "It's nice to get back to a small town." He enjoys skiing, he said. He enjoyed sailing in California and he's looking forward to boating on the local lakes. He also enjoys fish- ing and camping. His first day on the road was also Friday, he said. "I basically just shadowed Sgt. (Jeff) Lynn. It was fun to get out there and start doing what I'm doing with the rest of my life." He also enjoyed familiarizing himself with Sweet Home. Johnson is married to Veroni- ca. They have no children, but they have one dog. Reduced again!

She expects the same basic layout as last year, Frick said - "drags, bog holes and probably the same basic structure as last year as far as I know." The annual event draws ap- proximately 1,500 people, with 500 to 600 rigs, Frick said. Originally held in January, the event started in 1969 as an informal gathering on the bed of Foster Lake, which was drawn down during the winter. After the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers closed the Foster mud fiat, the event moved to Berlin Road as the Mountain Mud Festival. i Cable From page 1 Under the program, families that have children who qualify for free lunch at school may pay $9.95 per month for Internet ser- vice that normally costs $30, Goodman said. Comcast also will cover about two-thirds of the cost of a laptop for those families. Par- ticipants pay approximately $150 for the laptop. The Essentials program in- cludes online training, Goodman said. About 40 percent of Oregon students qualify for this program, he said, and about 59.4 percent - 1,299 - of Sweet Home students qualify.

In other business, the coun- cil: Approved a three-year lease agreement to purchase a new patrol car. The vehicle, a 2012 Dodge Charger, will cost $33,252 in three annual payments. The Police Department used the Chevrolet Caprice in the 1990s before switching to the Ford Crown Victoria and then the Chevrolet Impala, Martin said. When the Impala was discon- tinued, the city switched back to the Crown Victoria. That also has been discontinued, so the depart- ment has turned to the Charger. After completion of the three- year lease, the department pays $1 to purchase the vehicle, said Po- lice Chief Bob Burford.
