September 11th has come and gone and once again we watched the video that so changed all our lives.....It is still amazing to watch such a scheme unfold with such precision.
Friday in the Village of Dexter we learned that 9/11 has been of note there for some 22 years. It was on that late summer day in 1987 that the village's police chief was killed while responding to a shooting on Pillar Point.
The loss of Sam Johnson was also a loss for the City of Watertown as Chief Johnson was a city employee at the hydro plant.
For Dexter residents that crazy 1987 shootout that took two lives including the Chief showed how evil can occur in an instant and without warning.
It was a nice service today including a bagpiper provided by the Syracuse PD. The Fish Island Pavillion was dedicated in Chief Johnson's name.
It was a moving ceremony that reminds of the beauty of small town America where everyone feels the loss of one.
