Sheriff's Report, November 10, 2016
It was Beau Renfro, Gary Howell and Mark Hake to the rescue when a dog and his owner were separated near Hornstra Beach. The tide came in a little faster than expected and the dog got stuck on a log in a marshy area. Renfro had to go for a cold swim, but the dog and his grateful owner were happily reunited.
