Ponte High School @ Bartram Trail

It was a night of High School Basketball. I have decided basketball is like doing shuttle runs up and down the court while dribbling a ball. It is non-stop. I enjoyed shooting my first basketball game. It was fun. You can't blink or you might miss something!

Deputy Anderson

Today was a sad day for those who remain but a day of Homegoing for a fellow deputy. The world of law enforcement is different than any other profession. The people you work with become more than just your co-workers, they become your family. The deputies and their families have a bond that is often times difficult to explain. So, when the deputies of St. Johns County lost one of their co-workers, they lost their "brother."
Deputy James Anderson was killed in a car crash on January 14, 2010. He leaves behind his wife, and four children. His life was marked by a life of service to his family, his church and his country. Not only was he a deputy he was a Marine. He was passionate about his relationship with Jesus Christ and shared his faith with those who would listen. He was a loving husband and father. And, he was a brother to his fellow deputies. During his funeral service the pastor stated that this service is not a funeral but a homegoing service. It was a day to celebrate the life James lived and a celebration that he now lives with his Savior. I can't help to think that in his death others might see the life James lived and be challenged to live for the Lord.

SJSO Motor Unit

It was picture day for the SJSO Motor Unit. And a beautiful day at that! The deputies acted like they did not want their picture made but once we got started they were all into it.
Thank you SJSO for all you do to serve our county!!
