Ranger sets the pace



Ranger, the K-9 officer of the Forest Lake Police Department, was the pace-setter in Saturday’s first Ranger Run, a 5K run/walk which raised $700 for the Forest Lake Area Youth Service Bureau. Some 30 walkers and runners were registered. Above: Canine officer Nick Kent covered the course with his partner. The event was won by Paul Madden of Minneapolis in 19:26. Madden is a lifelong friend of Kent. Below: The morning event was just another nice stroll for Olivia Majeski, who enjoyed the ride with her father, Chris, a deputy with the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. (Photos by Cliff Buchan)
