As 2015 came to a close, we found out that one of Duluth's finest would be leaving our town to take a new job in Kansas. Police Chief Gordon Ramsay took to Facebook to announce he would be taking on the role of Wichita's Chief of Police in early 2016.

While there is excitement for Chief Ramsay's new opportunity, it'll be sad to see him leave the area and his post as Duluth's top officer. Matching that sentiment of mixed emotion, Duluth's own Red Bear, an individual Chief Ramsay is very familiar, wanted to offer a parting gift by which to remember Duluth. Of course, Ramsay became familiar with Red Bear in a Spring 2015 incident with another bear in Downtown Duluth. Following the scene, Chief Ramsay commented on the two bears downtown on his Facebook page (as seen below).

Red Bear offered a little gift basket that included some Duluth memorabilia, a little bear, and some of his favorite snack, honey. You can see the whole exchange in the video above.

Chief Ramsay, good luck in your new job from all of us here at MIX 108 - and, of course, Red Bear!
