Detective Jay Cooksey of the Livingston County Sheriff’s Office shared information and photographs of a project he and son Casen (age 7) have completed. The two made a pine wood derby car for Casen’s entry to the Pine Wood Derby on Saturday, January 21, 2016 for Cub Scout Pack 120 Den #2.

Their worked is highly detailed and a striking replica of the Dodge Charger Police Package vehicle primarily assigned to Deputy Chris Mueller who is also our K-9 officer.

We are proud of the work Jay and Casen did and their willingness to share this with us. We wish you the best of luck in the upcoming Derby.

A big Thank You to Amy Supple, Doug Long, Chillicothe Area Chamber of Commerce, Chief Darrell Wright, Bam Volunteers, the ambulance staff, Wheeling Fire, Dawn First Responders, Chula Fire First Responders, Chillicothe Parks and Chillicothe Street Departments, MoDOT, and the police, troopers, dispatchers, and deputies, and everyone else who worked the 2-day BAM Event.

This event brought hundreds of people through our area. I/we heard many positive comments from participants, supporters, organizers, businesses, and citizens. I saw quite a few of the participants enjoying Chillicothe and taking photos of the murals.

There was a great deal of responsibility and organization which took place for months and weeks ahead of BAM. Those involved did an excellent job.
