News Notes

Tillery - Ryan Aycock, a correctional officer at Caledonia was recently recognized by Asst. Supt. Ricky Duke for his fast thinking and quick action. While driving home, Aycock noticed smoke coming from the roof of a house. A small boy was standing at the front door looking inside the home. Aycock quickly pulled over and ran towards the burning house and child. The boy told Aycock that his mother and sister were inside the house. Without regard for his own safety, Aycock searched until he found the other two victims and helped them outside. Even after this heroic feat, Aycock stayed an hour longer to assist the fire department.
