Prior director not forgotten

I feel compelled to make a correction to an article written Oct. 18, which stated I was appointed to probation director in January 2013 to succeed longtime former director Warren Greene. I was actually appointed director upon the retirement of Michael Kirkpatrick, who began his probation career in 1982.

In 1988, Mike was promoted to probation supervisor and in January 2010, he was appointed to probation director upon Warren Greene’s retirement.

Mike always joked that he was going to be a “flash in the pan.” I just wanted Mike to know he is not forgotten.
