• A benefit dinner will be held from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Wednesday at Ponderosa Steakhouse, 6727 S. Cedar St., Lansing, with proceeds going to the family of Tampa police officer Jeffrey Kocab, who was killed in the line of duty Tuesday.
Jeff Kocab was born and raised in Lansing (MI) and has lots of ties here. He was murdered while on-duty as a Tampa, Florida police officer.
He leaves and wife and child and his former employer, the local Pondersoa is donating the total proceeds from supper this Wednesday to go the family.
We will be there and I hope the rest of Lansing will be there also. We DO need to support widows and orphans just like God says in the Bible.
