Dr. Gerry Diethelm of Marathon Veterinary Hospital presented a commendation to Sheriff’s Sgt. Spenser Bryan, Communications Officer Amanda Robinson and Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Christine Gracy. The group was responsible for saving a dog’s life. The owners of the dog were rushing the dog to the Vet hos-pital because it was dying. They became stuck in a lengthy traffic delay due to a serious accident on the Seven Mile Bridge. Working together these three got the dog through traffic and to the hospital in time to save the dog’s life. In the photo, left to right, Diethelm, Bryan, Robinson, Gracy and Sheriff Rick Ramsay.
