Adventures in news releases

This one from the RCMP in Placentia/ Whitbourne:

"One might think if you assist someone giving birth in extreme conditions that they may name their child after you or if you save a person from sure harm they may do something nice but police officers rarely expect anything. That is their job!
But this week under extreme conditions a member of the RCMP in Placentia saved a dog from sure death during an ongoing investigation and turned over this animal to the SPCA. The SPCA, in honor of the work of this fine young member, has renamed the doggie "Josh."
Cst. Josh TOWER couldn't be reached for comment but the RCMP are sure he is humbled as the Constable is an animal owner and was certainly affected by this file."
