There's a new captain in town. A new captain in the Crow Wing County Sheriff's Office - that is, Capt. Scott Goddard. Goddard, of Breezy Point, is not new to the sheriff's office, housed in the Law Enforcement Center in Brainerd. He has been with the sheriff's office for 22 years. "This is incredible," Goddard said after a recent pinning ceremony at the LEC where Crow Wing County Sheriff Todd Dahl promoted Goddard from lieutenant to captain. Dahl also promoted Deputy Tyler Burke to patrol sergeant.

A motorist found out the hard way Monday night that no ice is safe. Ben Olmscheid of Breezy Point was driving his full-size Ford pickup on the ice in the channel of Halverson Bay, on the north end of Pelican Lake in Pelican Township near Breezy Point, when the ice gave way and the truck dropped into the water. Olmscheid and a passenger in the truck escaped uninjured through the sunroof of the truck. Olmscheid called his father's friend, who was fishing on Pelican Lake at the time, to come help them.
