From a recent email received to the website:

101414_OfficerSmithMy name is Jay Rusch and I am the General Manager at Woodside Plantation Country Club in Aiken, SC.

Earlier this evening, I was reading an article about Ben Roethlisberger and it pertained to Aiken, SC.

I was a little surprised and excited especially after I finished the article. I am a HUGE Steeler fan (born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA) and I currently live in Aiken, SC, I thought to myself, this is awesome!

A close friend of mine, Clark Smith is a K-9 Narcotics Officer for Aiken Department of Public Safety and his K-9 partner, Fox (Belgium Malinois – photo attached) are an amazing team and asset to our community.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Ben Roethlisberger for the grant to ADPS. — Best regards, Jay Rusch, PGA.

Thank you to Jay for taking the time to send us the email and the photo of your friend and his partner!
