Shot officer in need

On Dec. 20, 2006, Idaho State Police Trooper Chris Glenn was shot in the line of duty. He came in contact with a robbery suspect while making a traffic stop. Chris is a childhood friend of mine, and I have known him almost 30 years. I began a friendship with Chris when we began kindergarten together and then later graduated from high school.

Chris is a well-respected officer, not only in the law enforcement community but in other public agencies and his community as well. You will often find Chris donating his time to school sports and other community activities. Chris has served as law enforcement not only in the Magic Valley but as an officer in our community. He has patrolled our streets, making them safer, and last assisted local agencies in the eradication of 2,000 marijuana plants. Having the privilege of knowing Chris throughout my life, I know him to be a kind and generous man, always wanting to help his community.

Formerly, Chris was a teacher at Kimberly High School. He then decided to pursue his career in law enforcement. Chris is a great husband, father and, last but not least, a great man who deserves our community's help and appreciation.

On behalf of the civil servants of our community and beyond, please join us in the effort to help the Glenn family in this time of need. A donation account has been established at any Wells Fargo Bank. I would ask you to either make your contributions there or send a much-appreciated donation in care of me at the following address to be deposited into this account:
