Robert Paoletti used to be the Redding Chief of Police, but his first love is the Army National Guard. This Thursday Colonel Paoletti will take part in an informational event at Simpson University, as a program is launched that allows students to continue their college education while also serving in the National Guard. The event runs from 5PM to 8:30PM, with representatives handing out T-shirts and water bottles. Paoletti will make a presentation during halftime of a basketball game taking place at Simpson Thursday evening. Information is available at simpsonu.edu.
