BARSTOW • Each year the Barstow Optimists Club sets aside a week to honor and appreciate those in law enforcement by recognizing a police officer and a firefighter of the year.
This year the Optimists Club recognized Nick DiNapoli as firefighter
of the year and Tim Heiden as police officer of the year. Both were
lauded for their contributions to the local community — a quality
Optimist Club leaders look for in each recipient.
