GRAND FORKS -- Jim Hewitt, a Kittson County deputy sheriff who spent a year in Iraq helping to train Iraqi border police, is on his way overseas again -- to Haiti, for a working reunion with daughter Lacey.


Lacey Hewitt, 26, has worked since August with Haitian orphans and lived through last week's earthquake. Her father has taken a leave from work to help rebuild the orphanage and, with an experienced lawman's eye, assess security around his daughter.
