The "West Point of Law Enforcement" was where my candidate for sheriff was appointed, accepted, completed and graduated from in December of 2017. The FBI Academy has been recognized as the highest level of law enforcement training in the world. In our rapidly changing society, it's nice to know that the man in charge of our county law enforcement has had the best training possible.
I don't know any of the three candidates that are running for sheriff, but I do know Sheriff Todd Dahl and if he is supporting deputy Scott Goddard then that is who Kathy and I will be voting for. Don T. O'Brien Baxter
We are supporting Eric Klang for Crow Wing County Sheriff in next Tuesday's primary election. Eric has experience in actually running law enforcement agencies and being accountable to the public. He is currently chief of police in Pequot Lakes and has done a great job there. Prior to being chief in Pequot Lakes, he was Crow Wing County Sheriff for four years. In addition to having a degree in law enforcement, Eric also attended to FBI Academy which is very rigorous and in-depth training. Great education and experience. Vote Klang on Tuesday, Aug. 14.

"Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other." Psalm 85:10 Sounds intriguing? In my American Patriot Bible is an article titled, "The Privilege and Responsibility for Voting." It's why we, as Americans should pray, vote, pray.
I will share my observations of candidates running from both political parties for Tuesday's primary election. For attorney general, I have known DFLer Tom Foley for 40 years. In 1989, Foley was the only elected official who testified in support of my stiffer-penalties bill for violent crime. Foley would make an excellent attorney general. Republican Doug Wardlow would also be an excellent attorney general. He has an exemplary record of legislative service. Wardlow believes in the rule of law.
It's fun for some people to read sci-fi magazines and books on topics such as nuclear particle physics, the bits and things that make up the atoms everything's made of. Some enjoy investigations of deep space, quantum mechanics, or black holes. Amateurs sometimes gather to discuss these things from a layperson's interpretation. Everyone has their own mental picture and point of view, interpreting what they've read. That's fine; it's fun, good exercise for the mind, and no harm done. Whatever they allow their fantasies and imaginations to come up with, no one is harmed or killed.
As a parent and business person in the community, I have become increasingly concerned about the safety of children in our schools. I was most impressed to learn that Capt. Scott Goddard, candidate for Crow Wing County Sheriff, implemented the ALICE program to teach students and teachers how to respond if faced with an active shooter event. He is a lead instructor in the Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate program and has offered this information to county employees, community partners, businesses and citizen groups.
I should like to write in support of Eric Klang for sheriff of Crow Wing County. His experience as both chief of police in Pequot Lakes and former sheriff is impressive, but an even more compelling reason to vote for him is his educational background in law enforcement and particularly his recent graduation from the FBI Academy. He is aware of the latest tools to use to keep us safe and he has the connections and knowledge to work with other branches of law enforcement locally, regionally and nationally. Vote for the most qualified candidate—Eric Klang. Sally Ihne
I've known Scott Goddard my entire life. We started the law enforcement explorers in Pequot Lakes with the help of local law enforcement. Scott has always conducted himself with the utmost integrity. I've also had the pleasure of volunteer coaching trap with Scott the last couple years, his demeanor is always the same and gladly helps with a smile. What I'm saying is Scott gives of himself to his family and to the community as a whole and it is my belief he is the best candidate for the job.
