My story on the California Highway Patrol Academy in West Sacramento has just been published by the West Sacramento News-Ledger. Photos were taken by the Editor, Steve Marschke. I enjoyed this assignment. Besides receiving a comprehensive tour, I was allowed to pilot a CHP vehicle around a flooded skid pad, which helps recruits practice their wet weather driving techniques. I will post the full text and photos once the article goes on-line, probably in a week or so.

Update: I’ve written at least 15 articles for the News-Ledger since the CHP piece came out. Click here (internal link) for a list of articles.
