Sheriff's office salutes Konar

Humboldt County Sheriff's Office personnel gathered to take a picture for Konar Davenport, a boy stricken with brain cancer. Local law enforcement officers are helping to cheer up 9-year-old Konar Davenport, who had plans to do a ride along with a Humboldt County sheriff's deputy before being diagnosed. The severity of his illness has prevented the youngster from meeting with deputies, so on Monday, officials with the Deputy Sheriff's Organization met at the Carson Mansion for a photo opportunity to pose for a picture they will all sign and send to Konar, who undergoing treatment at the UC Davis Medical Center.
