March 2015 Voice of Morgan County -

 Franklin can you tell the good citizens of Morgan County how much of the rodeo proceeds you have used to supplement the cost of equipment and supplies for the MCSO?  Can you share with us how much of the Posse/Rodeo funds actually go to the Special Needs?  We realize you put on a show which is great.  However, we want to know how much money you have donated to the Special Needs and other local charities.  We have seen the lavish parties you put  on for your cronies and the river boat rides.  We want to see what proceeds "REALLY" went to the charities.  Your words not ours....


March 2015 The Voice of Morgan County—11 Merit The sheriff also presented the Almon-Biles Award to law enforcement officers who put their lives at risk by saving others in the line of duty. The recipients of that award were: State Trooper Joe McDonald, Lieut. Robert “Bones” Wilson and Special Agent Mike McCoy. Not pictured is DEA Agent Jim England, a former member of the sheriff’s staff. Sheriff honored Franklin, who received the Humanitarian Award from the PCA National Rodeo Association, said she appreciates her staff and was glad to award them for their service. “I am so proud of all the sheriff’s office staff and all the community volunteers who help make this special day happen each year,” she said of her annual rodeo. “The proceeds from the rodeo allow us to supplement the cost of equipment and supplies for the office, but it also allows us to help local charities each year and to provide the Special Needs Rodeo to over 1,000 special people each year. The PCA Board and rodeo committees throughout the southeast recognize Morgan County as the wonderful place it is. It makes me proud to be your sheriff. Winning the Humanitarian Award for the second year is such an honor.” Franklin received the award in January in Biloxi, Miss. during a PCA national event.

Continued from page 10 The sheriff says she plans to assist with PCA’s efforts to help others begin Special Needs rodeos. “Therefore, this can be done for as many challenged people as possible throughout the PCA organization,” Franklin said. “It would even be a greater blessing to see next year’s Humanitarian Award go to another organization that we help. I am also grateful to all of our sponsors for their support each year.”
