Considering that Marco Island is as close to Gods waiting room as one may get, a sore shoulder is some what minor.

Hopefully it is minor although it required hospitalization?However, he's the Chief of Police and a fine one so his health and welfare should be important to all citizens.

I have neighbors and friends battling cancer and strokes. They are FAR more important to me. Either you are a fool or the chiefs PR person. What's more, if I were the chief, this injury is not news worthy.

Very sorry to hear of your neighbors health issues and they are very important.But, if a public official, hired or appointed has an issue, obviously it's news?
Again, this does not deminish anyone's problems so please, take your medicine.

I'm sorry to hear about his injury and wish him a speedy recovery. But, really, let's be honest he is in the office so infrequently, will anyone notice his absence?

Im sorry Hunter is in the Hospital, and I don't mean this in a bad way, but maybe he needs a job closer to home, that daily commute is bound to be hard on him.
