By Elizabeth Lowe
BURTON, Mich. — A Carman-Ainsworth High School graduate has been named as the Burton Rotary's Police Officer of the Year.
John Owens, who graduated from Carman-Ainsworth High School in 1989 and earned a bachelor's degree in criminal justice at Ferris State University, doesn't talk much about the mentally ill man who charged him with a hunting knife three years ago at the Burton Meijer store, chopping it into his skull so forcefully it chipped bone.
