SATURDAY, 6crOB§fU(>, 1956 ALtON EVENING TfcLfcG&APH McMoniglc and Moss Special Deputies Serve Cottage Hills And Forrest Homes Without Monetary Pay By NORMAN BROWN Telegraph Staff Writer COTTAGE HILLS - Two of the unsung civic minded residents of Cottage Hills and Forrest Homes are Lee Moss and Howfcfd Me- Monigle. county-wide special deputy sheriffs. To a lot of the population in this region the two men, who are familiar sights together, during the late afternoon and evening hours have the idea that they are "out to get" law violators just for the fun of it. This is far from the truth about the thankless job of trying to do the law enforcement work of the unincorporated area. Anytime, day or night that someone is in trouble the telephone rings at one or the other of their homes. Many people think that the men •who wear badges are on the city, county or stale pay roll, but this is far from the case, The pair do have commissions from the sheriff's office, but they are acting without pay and there is no incorporated village or city in Cottage Hills or Forrest Homes to pick up the tab for expenses. Many hours are spent chasing wild rumors as well us the complaints of residents. Some hours are spent keeping an eye on the speeders racing through the main highway, but there are other duties that are not so routine. When some families have a disagreement and the result is a spat, with fists involved, it is reported to "Lee" or "Mac" as the community knows them. Other cases of break-ins, robbery, rape and tights are on the docket throughout the year.- A weekend just passed had a variety of activities all camming on the same night. The night started out slow as the pair put on their badges to wait for calls to heip the community keep peace. A speeder was taken before a justice of the peace to start the bail rolling. Just after tb* men finished with that case, a car weaving across Hie road, came to their attention. While Lee was taking care of this offender, another car in a different direction was having trouble finding the proper lane to drive in. At the same time a woman was filing * charge of assault and battery which had just happened in the area, so there was a man to find after the warrent had been Issued. This was all taken in stride. A» tfw tiepudes were entering the East Alton polife station, whert they keep prisoners overnight on occasion, they volunteered to help the East Alton police in a search for a spe«k?r who had decided to park his car in the middle of an alfalfa field after a hard chase at a high rate of speod through the streets of East Alton and on into the country. By this time the wee hours of tl>« morning had crapt up and with A tbort coffee break it was bm« to return to East Alton, see the judge and dispose of the law vioiators. One was without tl>e necessary cash for the fine allotted, to » trip to the county jail in Edwardsville was next on the list. At 11 a.m. Sunday the night's business was pretty well cleared up. Then it was time to sleep after the all night venture. That is if no calls came in in the meantime. Both men have other jobs lor their income, but the public spirit and interest in their home communities keep them on the go when ever anyone calls for their assistance.
