LANSING, Mich. — Sen. Dale Zorn, R-Ida, joined the daughter of the late Michigan State Police Trooper Calvin Jones on Tuesday for a bill signing ceremony with Gov. Rick Snyder for Zorn’s legislation to designate a portion of M-52 from Carleton Road to the Ohio border as the Trooper Calvin R. Jones Memorial Highway. Jones was the first state trooper to be killed in the line of duty in Lenawee County.
Jones’ daughter Patricia Rowley and her husband Claude Rowley attended a Senate committee meeting in February in support of Zorn’s bill. Lenawee County Commissioner Jim Driskill knew Trooper Jones, who was a close friend of his father, and testified in support of the measure.
