Spring, 2013 – The Wasco County Sheriff’s Office held
their annual awards banquet on January
12th, 2013. Our attendance this year was
overwhelming with approximately 100 people
in attendance. We were honored by retired
Sheriff Darrell Hill and his wife, Dee, and
County Commissioners Rod Runyon, Steve
Kramer, and Scott Hege.
The award recipients are selected by their
peers from each discipline within the
Sheriff Office. This year’s award winners were
Deputy Jeremy Dutton from the Patrol Division.
Parole and Probation selected Probation
Officer Shawn Sorenson as Employee of the
Year. Dispatch selected Kathy Evinger as
Dispatcher of the Year. Volunteer persons
receiving awards this year were Lance and
Keri Kublic from Search and Rescue, Captain
William Getz from the Wasco County
Mounted Posse, and Captain Tonya Harth
from the Wasco County reserve unit. I would
like to extend my sincere gratitude and appreciation
for the dedication and commitment
that each of these individuals has given to
Wasco County Sheriff Office.
Civil Deputy Sonja (Sunny) Talatzko will be
retiring on March 1st, 2013, after 14-years
of service with Wasco County. Sunny was
responsible for all of the civil papers, sheriff
sales concealed handgun permits and many
other duties. The knowledge and skills that
Sunny has acquired during this time will
truly be missed by the private business sector,
as well as the citizens of the county. I would
like to wish all the best to Sunny in her
