My interest in Crime Stoppers extends back many years. As a citizen of Liberty County since 1977 and a member of the broadcast news media, I have had a chance to report on Crime Stoppers' development and mission for a long time. I was on the committee that formed the Liberty County Crime Stoppers organization some 20 – 25 years ago.It is now part of the Multi-County Crime Stoppers.
Since Liberty County became a part of the MCCS, my radio station, KSHN, has done publicity urging Liberty County listeners to be aware of Crime Stoppers and report crimes. We have also had Multi-County active participants on a KSHN interview program called The Party Line on a few occasions.
After 57 years in broadcasting and 43 years as an owner at KSHN, I have semi-retired. I was married to the brightest light in my life for 58 years – Jana, who passed away in 2020. I have two children and three grandchildren.
One of my very close friends, dating back some 35 years is Liberty County Sheriff's, Captain Ken Defoor. When approached by Captain Defoor to
consider joining the MCCS board, I recall a lesson I learned many years
ago, "You don't say no when Ken calls."
I look forward to contributing to the MCCS and can be reached via mobile/text at 936-334-2400 and email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Half of the gift certificate ($25) is funded by MCCS, with matching funds ($25) from the Top Cop Shop. The award announcment will be made on KSTAR radio.
