Kelley's final curtain call

May 1, 2012

Outgoing Sweetwater Police Chief Jim Kelley has taken a phrase from the popular TV police drama ADAM-12, "to protect and serve", and has embraced that mindset in his past 35 years of local law enforcement service.

But on May 1, 2012, he officially steps out of the police chief role toward a new journey — retirement.

The final outcome of Sat-urday’s Class 3A bi-district softball playoff in Graham may not have been satisfy-ing for Sweetwater fans, but the 9-0 loss to Iowa Park told only part of the story.
Those who (like me) have followed the local high school sports scene in recent years have no doubt noticed how little success Sweetwater has had, especially in the “team” sports. But the school’s softball program, which had endured the longest playoff drought — 15 years — of any of them, at least did its part to change that.

Responsible land management and care of our soil makes it possible to feed a population that is increasing, while agricultural land is decreasing.
