    The Scariest Duty - Part 3

    Welcome once again to the Chaplain’s Corner. I’m glad it’s April again. Spring Break is history one more time, and the bluebonnets are blooming, and we’ve had a little rain. I’m always glad to see it green up in the Spring… specially when everything turns brown in late August due to the lack of water. The Scariest Duty – Part 3. ...

    Chaplain's Corner: GOA and UTL

    “763, Llano. The subject is GOA. I’ll be in the area looking.” “763, Llano. Show me UTL.” Welcome back to the Chaplain’s Corner. As my dear old Grandpa used to say: pull up a chair and sit down beside it. I’m glad it’s April again. Spring Break is history one more time, and the bluebonnets are starting to bloom here and ...

    Thanksgiving Prayers from PoliceLink's Chaplains

    Thanksgiving Prayers from PoliceLink's Chaplains
    Hello, and welcome once again to the Thanksgiving edition of the Chaplain’s Corner. Since Thanksgiving is the time specially designated to giving God thanks, I thought I’d open this up and let a couple of my PL Chaplain friends share their thanks and prayers. *A Prayer from Chaplain Tom, Hampton, VA* Thank You, Lord, for letting me roam far and wide. ...

    Chaplain's Corner: Introducing Chaplain Bill Wolfe

    763 - Llano. I'm 10-41, 10-8. For nearly nine years now that's been my standard greeting to dispatch as I start a new shift as Deputy Wolfe, Llano County Sheriff's Department. So it seemed fitting somehow that I use it as I start this new "shift" - writing for PoliceLink. Welcome to the PoliceLink Chaplain's Corner. I contacted PoliceLink about writing ...

    Don't Give Up

    Don't Give Up
    Hi and welcome once again to the Chaplain’s Corner. Here we are already into the third month of 2011. I started seeing the grass greening and growing about the third week of January. Going to have go get busy about yard work pretty soon now, I reckon. Last month I attended a three-day seminar presented by the Concerns of Police Survivors ...

    The Greatest Gift

    Hello, and welcome to the Chaplain’s Corner. Here it is December again. The election is behind us, as is Thanksgiving, and the New Year is rushing at us. I’m ready for life to slow down a little… Christmas shopping’s got to get done again and my 56th birthday coming at me next February - about 20 years too soon. Perhaps it ...

    Getting Your Attention: The Voice

    Getting Your Attention: The Voice
    Hello and welcome to the March, 2011 edition of the Chaplain’s Corner. Glad to see you again. Hey, I’ve started seeing lots of bluebonnet plants germinating. Spring IS coming. I just hope we get some rain before all the bluebonnets dry up and wither away. I want to talk a little about “The Voice” this time out. I don’t know if ...

    Reflecting on the Meaning of Thanksgiving

    Reflecting on the Meaning of Thanksgiving
    Hi, and thanks for joining me one more time in this November’s edition of The Chaplain’s Corner. The big election is history and Thanksgiving is soon upon us again and then my 36th wedding anniversary. Where DID the year go? No… the question I should be asking myself is “When will the Christmas tree get put up this year?” -- you’ve ...

    Chaplain's Corner: Here Am I, Send Me

    Chaplain's Corner: Here Am I, Send Me
    Hi and welcome once again to the Chaplain’s Corner. Probably a lot of you have heard the NetFlix commercials on the radio, so you’ll get the joke when I say “I’m going to have company, but no one is coming to the house. Who is it?” The answer is Chaplain Dave Gardner is coming to join us at The Chaplain’s Corner ...

    Chaplain's Corner: Some Things Don’t Change

    Hello, and welcome once again to the February Chaplain’s Corner. It keeps trying to be Spring here in the Highland Lakes area…highs go from the 40s to 70s to 50s then back to 70s; gives some of us Spring Fever and others “cedar fever.” I just wish it would bring us some r-a-i-n. This drought keeps up, and the birds and ...

    Chaplain's Corner: Ramblings

    Hello, and welcome again to the Chaplain’s Corner. When I wrote my column for this month it was just days after Hurricane Ike hit the Houston area and my focus was directed mostly towards the survivors of that disaster. But when you think about it for a minute, the thoughts I present are applicable regardless of the disaster be it a ...

    Chaplain’s Corner: How Wonderful Is Love like This?

    Chaplain’s Corner: How Wonderful Is Love like This?
    Hey! You came back for more of the Chaplain’s Corner. I must of said something right. Last time I wrote about love as described in the book of I Corinthians in the New Testament of the Bible and question: “Does our love measure up?” I went on to open my Bible to the concordance in the back and looked at the ...

    Chaplain's Corner: The Roads to Jericho and Emmaus

    Hello, and welcome to this September’s edition of the Chaplain’s Corner. Friday night…September…and Texas…that means all roads lead to Jacket Stadium. Sting ’em, Jackets! Oh, sorry, got a little carried away there. I’m glad it’s September. That means it will start cooling down in a few weeks and our chances of rain should be going up. Hot and dry gets old ...

    Do You See What I See?

    Hello, and welcome to another Christmas Edition of the Chaplain’s Corner. My December 2005 article, “Christmas on the Dog Watch,” started with my musing about a bright star that I’d see each night. As I write this year, I’m still on the day watch, but that article and that star came back to my memory when I worked on patrol well ...

    Elen Sila Lumenn': Chaplain Bill Says Merry Christmas

    Elen Sila Lumenn': Chaplain Bill Says Merry Christmas
    Hello, and welcome to the annual Christmas Edition of the Chaplain’s Corner. No, my fingers didn’t get on the wrong keys when I typed the title of my article, and no, it’s not supposed to be Spanish either. My inspiration this year comes from the Elves. Not the Christmas elves of legend and cartoon lore, but the High Elves of Middle ...

    Chaplain’s Corner: Does a Cop's Love Measure Up?

    Chaplain’s Corner: Does a Cop's Love Measure Up?
    Hello, and welcome to February and to the Chaplain’s Corner. Oh, before I get started, something I think I forgot to mention in my intro…I write from a decidedly Christian (but not a denominational) perspective and will mention the name and person of Jesus in some articles. Now that I’ve gotten that little disclaimer out of the way… February brings some ...

    You Have Received a Hit Confirmation

    Hello, and welcome once again to the Chaplain’s Corner. Boy, here it is July already, the part of the year when most everyone focuses a bit closer on patriotism. At least until the fireworks are over. (That’s because they aren’t wearing body armor in the Texas sun. We just think about staying in the car where it’s cool, well… cooler anyway.) ...

    Chaplain's Corner: What If Daniel Had Been a Cop?

    Hello, and welcome to the Chaplain’s Corner. My last column took a look at the Old Testament character of Jonah and the whale and speculated how that might have gone down had Jonah been a LEO. In much the same vein, I want to try relating the account of Daniel in the lion’s den. (Again, let me make the disclaimer that ...

    The Gospel According to the Kelly Blue Book

    Hi, and welcome once again to the August edition of the Chaplain’s Corner. Here it is almost football season again and, as I write, the last rain we had has long since evaporated. It’s gittin’ mighty dusty out there on those unpaved county roads – not a lot of point in washing the patrol car when you raise a dust cloud ...

    The Death Notification

    Got your attention, didn’t I? Greetings from the Bluebonnet Capital of Texas and welcome to this edition of the Chaplain’s Corner. Okay, Okay…Llano is “officially” the Deer Capital of Texas, but we’ve got so many bluebonnets up and blooming already this year it could go the other way. Well, on to “business.” This is something that’s been on my heart for ...
