9781481708135: Cow County Chip: T. R. “Ticket Ted” Shannon # 4409 California Highway Patrol Officer (retired)

T.R. Shannon joined the San Jose California Highway Patrol in July 1966, and transferred to the San Andreas Area Chp office two years later, where he'd stay for the next twenty-one years. During that time, he drove about 750,000 miles on state highways and county roads, patrolling the most varied climate and terrain in California. Through hot summers, freezing winters, in the mountains, and in the grasslands, he thought fast, navigated ethical quandaries, and believed in and always strived to enforce the law without fear or favor. In this collection of 128 short stories, he looks back at high-speed pursuits, heart-breaking traffic accidents, physical confrontations, unsolved murders, and other events-from the routine to the unbelievable. Some of the people he arrested-and some of the people he saw die-he shed no tears for, but others-like the first person he arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol, earned his sympathy. An officer's job involves much more than writing tickets, investigating sometimes minor-but too often tragic-traffic accidents, and helping disabled motorists-although all those things are critical parts of the job highlighted in Cow County Chip.

About the Author :

The third of five children, Theodore (Ted) Shannon's values were influenced by a rural lifestyle, as a result of his father being a logging contractor. During the early years, wood stoves for cooking and heating were the norm, lighting was by kerosene lamps, and sanitary needs necessitated a walk to an outhouse. The children had chores: bringing in firewood and weeding the garden were assigned to Ted and his two brothers, while helping with household duties such as washing dishes and scrubbing clothes by hand were the responsibilities of his two sisters. Spare time activities included exploring rivers and forested hills, and unorganized team sports when there were enough “kids” available. Unlike his older brother, who seldom cracked a book unless it involved something mechanical, Ted loved to read, mostly adventure stories . . . and school homework assignments in his earlier years. T. R. “Ticket Ted” Shannon followed an erratic life's path prior to becoming a California Highway Patrol officer at thirty-one years of age: some college, seven years as a logger, one year as an apprentice mechanic, and five years as a City of Eureka firefighter. Almost all of the 128 short stories in “Cow County Chip” were gleaned from his twenty-three and one-half year CHP career, twenty-one of which were served in rural Calaveras County in California's Sierra Nevada foothills. Ted and Rosalie were married in 1956, have four children, four grandchildren and two great grandsons. They still live in the Mokelumne Hill house they purchased in 1968, and remain active in local organizations.

Description du livre AUTHORHOUSE, United States, 2013. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.One hundred and twenty-eight short stories of high-speed pursuits, heart-breaking traffic accidents, drunk drivers, physical confrontations, unsolved murders, character studies of police officers and civilians, ethical quandaries, humor, and other events that went well beyond routine activities are included in Cow County Chip. For the most part, other police officers would have similar stories to relate, but the circumstances would vary, and there are a few episodes here that almost certainly would be uniquely T. R. Ticket Ted Shannon s. The majority of the events took place in the pastoral Sierra Nevada county of Calaveras. Due to supporting vast herds of cattle, many of California s rural counties are referred to as cow counties, and one nickname for CHP officers is Chips, thus the title of this book. T. R. Shannon Productions. N° de réf. du libraire AAV9781481708135
