    Wow! that’s great! I don’t think our emergency services get enough pats on the back or gratitude for all the training they do and the emergencies they handle, so they can keep us safer. Thank you to Scott and all of the firemen, ambulance people and police officers in Sheldon.

    Congrats, Man! I agree with Le Ann. They were there in my time of need a few years back, and I can’t say it enough, that I am Grateful for them. But, back on topic, Great Job Scott!!!

    Well, well, well….. seems two readers are “thumbs-down” over something…..

    Do they dislike Scott? Do they dislike the posters? Do they dislike something the posters posted? Or, are they just meanies who dislike everything???

    Perhaps there is some plausible explanation; ideas anyone???

      I know. How dare we congradulate someone for thier accomplishments. It so not fair for someone to work thier butt off, and get an award, or reconized for doing so. “Spread the wealth”, after all in pre school if one gets a snack with milk, so does everyone else. (Being Sarcastic). Just a few who only get enjoyment in trying to bring someone down for thier achievments. Probably won’t amount to much anyway.

    CONGRATS Scott! You are a great person and a great instructor. You do so much for the community and you deserved this award. The people that dislike it are most likely jealous of your accomplishments! We can all say, with certainty, we are glad to know someone like you is calling shots on emergency scenes. Thank you for all of your dedication to even complete strangers.
