Notes of thanks

Dear Sheriff Al Nienhuis,

Your department has been an absolute blessing to our school. At a time when tragedy struck not only Newtown, Conn., but also the entire nation, your agency chose to step in without financial concern and provide the parents of Hernando County with a feeling of safety and security. This was embraced especially by school administrators who felt helpless to immediately ease parents' fears.

Christmas break provided a buffer between the event and the beginnings of recovery. Then to have your deputies arrive as the students returned to school was just a double portion of the blessing. You have instilled a true sense of community and hope where there was beginning to be a decline.

Thank you, Sheriff Nienhuis, for the godly decisions you have made and are making on our behalf. Thank you, deputies, for caring enough to go the extra mile for our community.

Marti Covert, administrator, West Hernando Christian School, Spring Hill
