Yesterday I drove with Logan to Logan, OH to check out Hocking College. For some unknown reason he has changed his plans to go to the Police Academy this fall and then get a job next April with a Police Dept. and has now decided that he's "not mature enough to be a cop" and needs another year to mature. Hmm ... I don't know, to me that sounds like a pretty mature conclusion to come to. But if he wants to go to college, who can argue?
So we went to Hocking College to see this school that has a recommended Police Science program that includes the Police Academy.
What to say ... its a little bitty school in a little bitty town. I think the best way to describe the feel of it is to quote the advisor that we met with when she told Logan that there were 4 dorms on the campus, 2 on the main campus and 2 across the river. "You can walk down the railroad tracks to get back and forth from there. Don't worry, you won't get hit by a train - they go 15 miles an hour and blow their whistle and have lights so if you get hit, its your own fault. I tell the guys that if they've had a rough night that the train has a cattle catcher on it to just grab a hold of it and hold on tight".
