FAREWELL and best wishes to long-time panel speaker Jim Covert of Oak Harbor who is moving out of state. A retired police officer who served with several island law enforcement agencies during his career, Jim spoke passionately about dealing with the aftermath of DUI on 35 of IDIPIC’s panels since 2001. We’re going to miss you Jim. Keep in touch!
