Bosque County’s new deputy dog

Sheriff’s office retires canine officer Buck, welcomes Ace By Simone Wichers-Voss On average dogs live to be about 10 to 13 years, so retiring at 10 years old after a full life of service is pretty darn acceptable. Recently the Bosque County Sheriff’s Office retired their canine officer Buck, certified and with honors. He will be able to live out the rest of his life in his handler Danny Ragsdale’s family home. Thanks to a generous donation by Clifton’s Dr. Trotter the BCSO was able purchase a new deputy dog – a one-and-a-half year old young gun – Ace. Like Buck, Ace is a black and tan brindle Dutch Sheppard. Like Buck, Ace is a dual service dog, trained to be a drug dog and serve as protection for his handler. He is trained to sniff out the most common drugs like marijuana, methamphetamine, heroin and cocaine. Ace is about the same size as Buck, maybe a bit bigger, but he will be able to utilize the protective vest purchased for Buck last year.

By Nathan Diebenow

 

It began to sound a lot like Christmas in Clifton on the evenings of Monday, December 12, and Thursday, December 15.

That’s because the award winning Clifton High School and Middle School bands performed their annual Christmas concerts.

The high school cafeteria was packed with parents, grandparents, students, teachers, friends, and perennial band supporters for generous helpings of holiday music.

The incredible high school concert on Monday opened with “A Christmas Festival” by Leroy Anderson, arranged by Robert W. Smith.

The student-musicians effortlessly blended a medley of long-time favorite Christmas carols: “Hark! The Harold Angels Sing,” “Deck The Halls,” “God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen,” “Silent Night,” “Jingle Bells,” “O Come All Ye Faithful,” and “Joy To The World.”
