What some of us call a daring act of self-sacrifice, of putting another’s welfare above our own, of going above and beyond the call of duty, a few local public servants called “just another day.” That’s how California Highway Patrol Officers Lisa Beaudette and Robert Nevins described their role on Aug. 1 when they helped save Evan Bright’s life. El Dorado County Sheriff’s Deputy Todd Crawford arrived at the rescue in progress.
