Recently, I read about a bill that would raise the pay of Maine’s State Troopers. I think they certainly deserve it.

During the past, while deer hunting at my friend’s camp in Albany, the State Trooper in town, Don Shedd, would  come over and hunt with us. He was one of the nicest guys that I have ever met.

Every morning, when they go to work, they put their lives on the line, not knowing what idiot is carrying a loaded gun with no regard for human life they might have to deal with.

I certainly hope they get a raise in pay, and more respect from everyone.
