'SEE YOU IN COURT'

“I’m done with you guys,” Hessmer Police Chief Kenneth Smith tells the Village Council on April 1 during discussion on proposed ordinances to cut the police budget and to authorize making the police chief position an appointive post. "I'll see you in court," Smith threatened as he stormed out of the meeting. The council approved both measures and is expected to put a proposition on the Nov. 16 ballot to let voters decide whether to keep an elected police chief or change to an appointed one. {Photo by Raymond L.
