Family's Dream Continues, Even After Deputy's Death

It was one month ago today that Deputy Bruce Evans lost his life in the line of duty with the Jackson County Sheriff's department. Evans left behind a wife and two children... and the dream of building their own home. Following his death, plans to finish the home were in doubt when the contractor appeared to back out.

Since we brought you this story three weeks ago the Evans family has received an amazing amount of support from the community. The Family's house is now framed and ready to be roofed with all the electrical work complete. So far most of the materials and labor has been donated by the community. Despite the progress the house still needs a lot of work.

Next weekend, friends of the family are planning a benefit for the slain deputy's wife and two children.
