OSKALOOSA, Kan. (AP) _ Jefferson County Sheriff Roy Dunnaway is retiring after 25 years.
One of his favorite moment came in 2005 when he had not yet mastered handling his department's new air boat when he heard the screams of a woman trapped in floodwaters and saved her.
Dunnaway worked in law enforcement for 39 years as marshal of Perry, a lake officer, a Jefferson County sheriff's deputy and sheriff.
In 2005, Dunnaway purchased a used air boat with a 500-cubic-inch engine for the sheriff's department a week before a flood and didn't have much experience handling the craft.
When he and two other officers found the woman clinging to some brush and pulled her from the chilly waters, her temperature had dropped due to chilling. Her car had been swept off the road.
