Police officer retiresp
Wouter de Vries was seen on tv for years as a police advisor. Now he has quit doing that. He got involved with the police in his late working life. First he was a police officer and later got into advising. As police spokesman the work isn't always easy. It's about finding a balance between giving the right information and not saying too much that could cause damage in the research. But he also had to be there when an accident happened to talk to the press. In those moments it's hard to stay professional.
Nederlandsche Tram Maatschappij
Once dozens of steam- or diesel trains rode around in the north of the Netherlands. They were small trains who maintained the connections between the smaller places. All those train lines were replaced by bus lines during the years. Frank Hemkes has always been a big fan of trains but when he moved to the tram dike in Lemmer his curiosity took over him and he went out looking for information on these tram lines. Especially the ones that went from Lemmer to Sneek. He goes out to give readings
about it regularly.
