MORRISTOWN, NJ - Two members of the Denville Police Department were among four law enforcement officers honored Friday for helping people in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.

Denville Police Officer Kristian Sandman and Denville Police Officer Peter Grawehr were praised by Morris County Prosecutor Fredric Knapp and by John Speirs, the prosecutor's office chief of investigations. Also honored for their Puerto Rico efforts were Mountain Lakes Police Cpl. Samuel Trimble and Morris Township Police Patrolman Diego Pinheiro.

"These four police officers willingly volunteered their time and energy to ensure that the people of Puerto Rico could get back on their feet as soon as possible, following that devastating storm," said a statement from the prosecutor's office.

Speirs said the officers “fully embody the full meaning of being a civil servant, and were recognized for going above and beyond their daily duties.”

The state sent about 400 state, county and local officers as part of the “NJ Pride” mission to help Puerto Rico. The mission began Sept. 30.

“It is an honor to know that there are members of our county’s law enforcement family who take their civic responsibilities above and beyond what is expected of them," said Knapp. "Their efforts should not and do not go unnoticed in Morris County. We in the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office are pleased to recognize these four volunteers.”

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)

 

How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
