I would like to correct your staff writer first: I am a paid Lincoln County sheriff's deputy, not an elected constable.
More importantly, I am writing concerning the article about some members of the Junction City Council calling the medals we received "ridiculous."
I would like to thank Mayor Harmon and Chief of Police Gipson for this honor. If it is possible for the city to receive their money back for the award, I will gladly turn it back over to the city council members. I understand the city is in financial despair, and I will even reimburse them for the money they were out.
