In Your Opinion: Beers tournament was fun, worthwhile

The Daily Star

---- — Hi, my name is Alex Funk. I am a member of Boy Scouts Troop 49 in Hobart. I was a participant in the Walton basketball tournament for Roland Beers. “Rollie” passed on Jan. 25, 2013. He worked part-time in in the Walton Police Department but wanted to be full-time. He quit his job in Breakstones and became a full-time police officer in 1979. Even after he retired he still served the people. In 1993, he became a village justice. In his honor, we raised money to students pursuing criminal justice. Not only was it helpful for students it was also very fun to play and watch. Though after the tournament I was very sore, I would do it over any time.
