Today a lady called the police on some kids that were playing football. One kid, running from a dog, (scared to death) jumped on her air conditioner! Newton Police Department came, and turned this into a good thing! Officer C.D. Costner stayed with these boys and played ball for an hour!! He also used this ad a learning lesson! He is also starting a program in our area for young children ages 14-21!! Thank you for taking time out with our boys!! This means so much to show them that cops are good people too!!
