Chief Nettleingham and other heroes of that fateful night at Turner Cafe. We just said good-by to the last of the three of you that ended up in Hoisington Hospital that night. My dad, Pat Parks, died in 1995 and we buried Duane Kraft today at Greenwood cemetary.
Chief, you were a true pioneer in the small agency term of a public safety agency. Back in those days there were no conflicts between Fire and Police. We know more now about the chemicals produced in smoke, even at a distance.
