Seventh-grader Bradley Marks, right, got a pretty cool ride to school Friday morning, June 14, the final day of the school year, cruising into the Sweet Home Junior High parking lot in a police cruiser with Officer Sasha McDonald at the wheel and Gemma, Sweet Home Police Department’s drug-detecting dog along for the ride in the back seat. Bradley got the lift after his dad, Brad Marks Sr., won a Turkey Bingo prize last fall, Marks Sr. said. But it ended up not being just a ride to school. McDonald made a stop at Sugar Vibes donut shop for a few refreshments before Bradley had to hit the books for the last time this year.
