Justin Martini and Wyatt Line select a free dino snack tray, courtesy of Premiere Theatres, on Monday as part of an annual outing for first-graders from Churchhill and Washington Elementary schools, as well as all of the special education students (kindergarten through 12) in Cloquet Public Schools. The event is courtesy of Federated Co-ops, Inc., Land O’ Lakes, Inc. and a private donor who wishes to remain anonymous. After everyone was settled in the theater, Bruce Munter of Federated Co-ops presented special education teacher and event organizer Deb Roach with two $400 checks from each company while Premiere staff members Alexis Woods, Marissa Manty and Taylor Stowell looked on.
My name is Kyle Burton and I am a Deputy Sheriff with the Mille Lacs County Sheriff's Office. I have served you as a Mille Lacs County Deputy Sheriff for 6 years and it has been my career goal to be a K9 handler. The Sheriff's Office had to put our K9 "Tracker" down in 2010 due to health reasons. K9 Tracker had many years of dedicated service to all residents of Mille Lacs County. Since then, there has been a great void within the Law Enforcement Community in Mille Lacs County because no other agencies in our county have K9 units. We have been calling other counties to come over into Mille Lacs County with a K9 to assist us in locating narcotics and fleeing suspects. However, the communities that these other agencies serve take first priority and often times they are not available to come into Mille Lacs County to assist us.
I worked with former K9 Deputy Terry Boltjes for many years while he had Tracker and assisted him in training of the dog. I personally witnessed the benefits of having a K9 and saw K9 Tracker locate and apprehend many suspects. Sheriff Lindgren realizes the tremendous resource that a K9 is to Mille Lacs County and has decided to replace our K9 unit. Sheriff Lindgren has appointed me to be the new K9 handler. I now have the task of raising money in the form of donations. Your donations will go towards the purchase of a new dog and sending the K9 and I to an intense 10 week training course. Once trained and certified, the K9 will be able to locate and detect illegal narcotics as well as locate and apprehend fleeing suspects. It will also be utilized to assist law enforcement and search and rescue in locating lost persons and children.
A donation was given this past February to the Kinship Youth Mentoring Program. This donation was matched by the Land O’Lakes, Inc. Foundation which Federated Co-ops is a member of. The Kinship is a mentoring program to help children that need a mentor in their life whether it be for social skills or educational skills.
