Laurel Hurst residents were very upset by the passing of the Polk County Sheriff Office’s K-9, Trixie. Trixie’s handler’s wife, Amy Russell, is an employee of Laurel Hurst and residents wanted to do something to show their support. So, they took up a collection and made a donation to the sheriff’s office for a new K-9. One resident said that it’s always good to give especially if it’s to someone local.
