Matt Klukas is the newest officer on the Morris Police Department. Morris Mayor Sheldon Giese administered the oath of office to Klukas at the Oct. 25 meeting. Klukas is from Victoria. He was most recently a community service officer for Carver County, Morris Police Chief Ross Tiegs said. "He did some patrol and responded non-criminal events in Carver County," Tiegs said. "It's relatable experience (to regular patrol) but it's not quite the same."

We want to thank our volunteer firemen from the Morris and Hancock departments, the unflappable 911 employee who took my call, and the police department for setting up barriers so that the fire crew could get to our address so quickly. We are so appreciative of the professional and compassionate response on Sept.18. early morning garage fire. We don't know all the names of the fireman who came — but we will be forever grateful to all these wonderful men. Because of their rapid response they saved our house, which was six feet away from the garage.
