Newly confirmed Police Chief John Miller was introduced to the Winters City Council at the July 19 meeting, prior to being officially sworn-in on Monday, July 25. From a pool of 34 hopeful officers, Miller came out on top through multiple interviews with staff and community panels, and final selection by city manager John Donlevy.
“He is the type of chief our officers absolutely deserve. We have a younger, less experienced police force. (Miller) is somebody that is going to stand with them and lead them,” said Donlevy.
Miller was one of three Vacaville police officers to receive the city’s first Medals of Valor for his involvement in a murder-suicide committed by Air Force Major Lloyd Moody in 1996, where Moody reportedly opened semi-automatic fire on the officers. . . .

Records fall at Championship meet

Express sports

Performing at your highest level at the championship meet is what every coach works for and last weekend the Winters Swim Team did just that.
Winters played host to the Golden Valley Swim League Championships that brought nearly 800 people to the Bobbie Greenwood Pool and broke five meet records along the way.
It was a busy weekend for everybody and a very successful meet for the Winters Swim Team overall, but some stood high above the rest.
It’s a great day to place at the championship meet and an even better day to win your event. But when you do it in record-breaking style, it doesn’t get any better.
Winters broke five different meet records over the weekend four individuals and one relay.
Jules Jiminez broke the 50 yard breaststroke in the 15-18 girls with a time of 33.98. In the same age group, Casey Cox broke the 50 free with a time of 26.28.
Lane Brown set a new record in the boys 7-8 50 free with a time of 36.09 and Lyla Anello broke the mixed 6 and under 25 free kickboard record with a time of 30.80.
In the girls 9-10 medley relay, Kalyssa Grinbergs, Amelia Doran, Emily Dodic and Anne Rodriguez teamed up to break the meet record with a time of 1:12.23. . . .
