GALT - Josh Ochoa was riding down a Galt street Wednesday afternoon when he saw a car spin three doughnuts and then speed off.

Ochoa's first instinct was to go after the car and pull it over. But at age 15, the Galt police cadet has a number of years to go until he can get into a patrol car and conduct traffic stops. He tried to get the license plate, but only got three numbers before the vehicle was gone, and he isn't yet allowed to chase after bad drivers.

    Hi Galt cadets! You all sure make a fine photo for this page. Good of Sgt. Chuck to get you a write up at Layla's hand. I know you live in a fine place there, but maybe , rarely, some good citizen, gets out of sorts and needs help. I have had a bad day on occasion myself, and getting that pointed out to me by a uniformed guardian was a good thing. .. "reflecting" .. Enjoy and fully participate in this learning process. Dealing with people on their rare bad days is a great skill to learn. I hope all your young friends there realize they are included in respect and vigilance to community. The simplest of kind and gentle handling, or a firm concise request can aid someone more than you realize, or them saying a thank you. Fidelity to service of people with your accepted responsibility will surely make you a champion of people. .. As a reader here from Vancouver Canada, i hear you have scorching weather near a hundred and six!F. i wonder if that means you all get to wear shorts!
