Bo Knows Better

Bo Trout, president of the National Association of Show Trucks and owner of Bogie’s Express Inc., knows what the best looking fleets are wearing

Bandagram VOLUME 33 – 4TH QUARTER 2008


The lyric “I’m Proud to be an American” in Lee Greenwood’s mega-hit, “God Bless The U.S.A.” could probably serve as an anthem for a high percentage of the men and women in the trucking industry, who ride the concrete highways to keep our economy moving. Bo Trout, the president and owner of Bogie’s Express Inc., in Tecumseh, Michigan, is among the most patriotic of those truckers. He reinvested some of his company’s profits to keep his trucks beautiful artistically, while saluting the men and women in the armed forces and those who gave their lives on 9/11, with murals painted on the area firefighters on motorcycle.

Emergency Drill Thank you


To the editor,

I want to publicly thank the Adrian police and fire departments, Addison, Clayton, Madison, Raisin Township, Tecumseh fire departments and Lenawee Community EMS which all took part in the full-scale exercise this past Wednesday.

In addition, I want to recognize the contributions of Anderson Development for the use of their properties where the exercise took place. Thank you Chemtura management and staff, particularly Mr. Joe Thatcher {Safety Director} for his time in assisting in the planning of this exercise. The Lenawee Intermediate School District proved to be invaluable to the exercise as they provided students to fill the role of “victims” for the event and police explorers who provided perimeter security. The LISD media classes provided videographers at each site so that all the activity could be captured and used by all as an educational tool.

My thanks to ProMedica Health System for their role in the exercise, providing decontamination sites at both Herrick and Bixby medical centers as well as providing an air transport unit. Thank you to Bogies Express for providing the chemical tanker which added realism to the drill.

An event of this nature is a massive undertaking requiring months of planning and would be impossible without the shared vision, partnering and collaboration from the various public safety and health care sectors. This was an outstanding educational experience that would not have been possible without you. I sincerely thank all those who participated in the exercise and many more who gave of their time behind the scenes during the planning stages and to those who worked in support functions during the exercise.

Curtis Parsons

Lenawee County Emergency Coordinator
