Hero Week Day 3

Trooper Paul Richey, 40, was shot and killed January 13, 2010 when he and another trooper responded to a domestic disturbance call. Both troopers arrived at the scene and exited their vehicles. As they approached the house, a male voice called from a window for the Troopers to return to their cars. At that point Trooper Richey was hit in the neck with a .30-30 rifle round fired from the window of the residence. He is survived by his wife and two children.

“When you give a eulogy, you’re supposed say good things. In this case, that’s easy because Paul symbolized all that was good in life.”
“He was never one to step away. He’d step forward.”
“Paul did not have to go on that call. … It was not his zone. … It was not his call. Paul gave his life fulfilling the core of his calling. … Trooper Paul Richey upheld the honor of the force.”

Trooper Richey’s Capt. will be a guest at the 530pm class.

    If you get to a point where you need a performance boost during Hero Week then for all you Phreaks who are do it yourselfers try this on, cuz it works! And don’t worry you will burn up the ingredients during a one-hour class…you need the following:
    1/4 cup of sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup of orange juice
    2 tablespoons of lemon juice

    In a 1-quart pitcher, dissolve the sugar and salt in 1/4 cup of HOT WATER. Add the orange and lemon juice and 3-1/2 cups of COLD WATER. This mix gives endurance athletes the 2:1 glucose to fructose mix REQUIRED for PEAK PERFORMANCE and not the 1:1 of sport drinks made with high-fructose-corn-syrups!!
