Tragedy struck our community last week when Adams County Sheriff’s Deputy Heath Gumm was shot and killed while pursuing a suspect. My flags have been flying at half-mast since then in honor of this young man who gave his life in service to his fellow man.
Today, Deputy Gumm was laid to rest and tomorrow, my flags will once again fly high. I hope to never have to lower them again but, sadly, I know I will.
All we can do is say a prayer for the brave men and women that serve on that thin blue line and their families and let them know we appreciate them and support them.
