Excerpts

Powers Trace

This great land has many places with people who knew what the word neighbor means, who always put hand over heart as the flag passes during the Fourth of July parade, and raise a ruckus with their hymn signing in church on a Sunday morning. 

-----------------------------------------------------

The five person police force of Powers Trace wore nice uniforms but Sophie preferred blue jeans, work shirts, and boots. She monitored the radio and answered the phone during the day as well as tracking the paperwork. Her filing system wasn’t neat but she could find anything of value. If the request was routine, it was held until she got around to it.

Powers Trace II

The night wind came in from the north, bitter cold but its February, and the last month of winter in Dixie. The fragrant smell of hickory fills the air as hardwood burns in fireplaces throughout the small town and families huddle together in their homes to stay warm. Powers Trace, a town of 1,200 people located in the southwest corner of Georgia, is ready to bed down for the night under the protection of their police force.

-----------------------------------------------------

Vern Post is the number two man on the force, the gold shield detective under the Chief, and a veteran of twelve years in law enforcement. He will move up to his new job as the lead investigator when one of the new officers is qualified to take his place on night patrol.

Powers Trace III

South Georgia is hard country. The summers are hot, humid, and dry with some years that never bring enough rain to raise crops to provide a proper income for the families who work the small farms, in the dust, from daylight to dark tending fields that may wither and die at harvest time. Despair is foreign to these people. They will stay on the family farm, and start over every spring, no matter what success they had the previous year. These good folks raise strong children with character. Laughter is part of their day. Concern for their neighbor’s welfare is part of their life. The community is the core that binds neighbor to neighbor, and Powers Trace is where they choose to live.

-----------------------------------------------------

Peaceful living, no other description fits. Criminal activity is rare, mainly misdemeanors, domestic disturbances, and youth problems. Nothing major has occurred in the last five years, which is fine with the police. Some would call it boring but no one complains.
