Never forget:

Ingleside Police Chief Tammy Burr holds a framed proclamation honoring Peace Officers’ Memorial Day that coincides with National Police Week May 15-22 before the permanent memorial in the lobby of the police station on 8th St. to the city’s only patrolman ever killed in the line of duty. Raymond E. Cooper’s ‘End of Watch’ – as it’s called – was January 15, 1978. He was killed in an automobile accident during the pursuit of a female suspect. According to a plaque, the chase began near Aransas Pass and was headed towards Gregory, ending in a crash at the intersection of 4th St. and US 181. After an investigation, it was learned the suspect had a history of leading officers on pursuits. Cooper had served with IPD four years and left behind a wife and child. A wooden chair, part of his memorial includes the words, ‘Saving a Hero’s Place’, and below it the inscription, ‘The wicked flee when no one pursueth. But the righteous are bold as a lion.’ Ingleside Index

Bargains galore

Ingleside on the Bay’s Parks and Recreation Dept. hosted a community-wide rummage sale Saturday, May 14th, with 23 homeowners participating. Maps included in this month’s water bills helped everyone navigate locations where the sale items could be found. Organizers say it was a great way to empty out some garages and storage sheds while giving neighbors a chance to meet one another and pick up some great deals, too. Courtesy: Ann Nyberg
