I would like to express my deepest gratitude and appreciation for the courteous and compassionate service provided by a Marysville Police Officer, Rick Sparr. I was stranded at the Marysville YMCA with a flat tire on Feb. 12. Officer Sparr was there patrolling the area and he kindly offered to change my tire. Big kudos to him for making me feel safe and helping me without hesitation. He was truly a godsend and I believed that he went above and beyond his duty as a public servant. I had so much respect for him that I needed to tell the community and his colleagues of his outstanding dedication to help people. Again, thank you very much, Officer Rick Sparr, God bless you.
