Event Held To Honor Fallen Smith County Constable

It's been almost three months since Smith County Constable Dale Geddie was shot and killed after responding to a domestic disturbance call. Since then, support has come from all over East Texas.   The Northeast Smith County Neighborhood Crime Watch Committee held Dale Geddie Day. The event was to honor him and show support for law enforcement officers. Awards were given out to the different agencies, and a check was presented to Geddie's family. The money was collected through First Baptist Church in Winona shortly after Geddie was killed.  

"It's just so overwhelming, so overwhelming and we do appreciate all that everybody has done for us," said Dale Geddie's wife, Lisa Geddie. "He (Geddie) actually truly did his job, and he did it with honor and that citizens of this precinct appreciated what he did."  

Today's event ended with the unveiling of the Geddie Memorial, which sits in front of the Precinct 4 office. The monument was donated by Tyler Memorial Park. Congressman Louie Gohmert also presented an American Flag to Geddie's family that was flown over the U.S. Capitol in Washington D.C.   The money raised through raffles and a silent auction will go towards the Dale Geddie Scholarship Fund.

    At this time last year, a guy by the name of Dak Prescott was still on the draft board. In fact, the Mississippi State star didn't hear his named called until Saturday during the fourth round. Luckily for the Cowboys, Prescott turned out to be the hidden gem of the 2016 draft class. The NFL AP rookie of the year was in Longview Friday night for a fundraiser supporting the Boys and Girls Clubs of the Big Pines.
