It took me a few days to respond to this because I was so peeved by the obnoxiously ignorant comments made on this article. The presumptions that have been made about Mr. Wise's retirement are completely false, and unless you have the facts on the statements that you are making, you should take your opinions elsewhere.

Also, I think it's safe to say that none of you have devoted 30 years of your life to anything worthwhile like serving your community faithfully. Is this a false accusation? Oh, I guess I'm making presumptions about your life too.

Regardless of the disgust I have at some of these comments, I'd like to take a paragraph to really tell you that I know Mr. Wise personally. He has never given me any reason to believe that his life is not completely dedicated to the church, his family, and the community. I have known him in each of the hats he wears, and I have never met a man of his caliber since. There is not a single bone in his body that reflects bad intent.

I am so sorry that Chief Wise even has to come under these kind of accusations. I think people who have spoken negatively about him and his career should really reflect on what kind of man you think that he is. I hope the previous comments will attest to his integrity and faithful spirit to everything that he does.

Congratulations on your retirement Mr.Wise! I know there are plenty more things in store for you!

Seems to me that everyone thinks Joe Wise is a great guy except some dilbert from Powell who has never met him or probably been to Grove City.

My only wish is he would stay on as Chief for 10 - 15 more years.

Enjoy your well deserved retirement, and may your successor believe in "Protect and Serve" and not Hassle and harrass.

Count me among those wishing Chief Wise a happy retirement. He is a good guy and is just playing by the rules. Those rules need to change before our cities and states all go broke! Retirement is for when you are too old to work. That description does not fit Chief Wise or most public employees in their mid 50's. Obviously, I am not a public employee. Your 50's is typically when you are most productive in your career. We've created a system where just when our workers become most productive, we let them go. Such a system is not sustainable in its current form.

All of this Christian talk makes me sick. He was Chief for 2 years then decided to retire with a full pension? Sound like GREED to me. If I am wrong, why is the the securit manager at Polaris Fashion Place Mall? He has his full pension and needs a full time job? Must really be helping the church out. By the way, because of incompetence he is about to be separated from the payroll at Polaris.

Joe spends his afternoon locked in his office making personal phone calls. The only reason he got the job is because of a hookup from the Glimcher corporate security manager, who by the way is a former police chief in Grove City.

Please, leave the do-gooder Christian part out of this.

Joe couldn't handle being chief. That is why he has a job rolling 18 year old kids. That's about all he can intimidate. Guy is a loser in my view.
