We recognize we’ve had a lot of posts lately about members of the community bringing us food, but we think this story is particularly noteworthy.
This morning, 12-year-old Bella and her two sisters, Sophie, 8, and Daenerys, 3, delivered 10 dozen Krispy Kreme Doughnuts to the Weld County Sheriff’s Office. The girls paid for the donuts with their own money.
Bella, Sophie and Daenerys receive a regular allowance from their parents. A portion of that allowance goes into their savings. They’re allowed to spend another portion of that money on themselves. A third portion is reserved for spending on gifts for other people.
In the spring, Bella, Sophie and Daenerys’ parents asked them how they wanted to spend their gift money. They said they wanted to do something special for their local police officers. It took them four months of saving their gift money to be able to afford the donuts they delivered this morning.
It goes without saying that we were touched by the sweet and thoughtful gesture. And all kidding and stereotypes aside…we really do love our donuts over here (they were still warm when the girls arrived)!
Thank you Bella, Sophie and Daenerys for thinking of us.

NATIONAL PREPAREDNESS MONTH: When an emergency hits, it’s important to have a kit with all necessary items to help you and your family respond and recover. It’s a good idea to have an emergency preparedness kit in your house and car. Include water, nonperishable food, first aid kit, a battery-powered radio with extra batteries, flashlight, pet supplies and food, extra clothes, etc. Make sure you have these kits put together before a disaster strikes — don’t get caught in a tornado or flood without the necessary resources for yourself and your family.

The Weld County Sheriff's Office received today an impressive collection of law enforcement badges from the family of Randy Brauchler. Unfortunately, Randy passed away Aug. 31 at the age of 60 after a long battle with cancer.
Randy, who resided in Evans, worked for 33 years as a retail clerk for the United States Postal Service in Greeley. He was an avid collector of police and military memorabilia, and was an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment.
The Brauchler family decided after Randy's passing to donate some of his collection to local organizations and agencies that might appreciate them.
Thank you, Brauchler family for thinking of us. We appreciate you entrusting us with Randy's collection and will soon incorporate these badges into a new display.
