Rumor has it

Folks, rumor has it that some of the candidates for sheriff have gone to the jail to talk to employees about their platform for sheriff.

Our sources tell us that Owens did a pretty good job on his platform until he broke one of the Sheriff's Golden Rules.  We hear he mentioned the big B word.  Budget.  You can imagine that the mention of the finance and financial records made Ana's hair stand on end.

Our sources say Ana turned into a fire throwing dragon.



Speaking of sheriff our sources tell us that Cavnar has already declared victory.  Victory over Puckett snubbing his nose at Childers, Owens, and Clairday.

We believe it is way too premature to count any of the candidates out.

Folks, when you go to the polls, remember this:  Darrell Childres nor any of the other candidates have made frivolous promises they can't keep.  We can only imagine what kind of shape the sheriff's office is in.  Our sources tell us it's a mess.  A big mess.  First and foremost the majority of the candidate's agenda is evaluation and assessment of the weaknesses and vulnerabilities within the SO.  Not unrealistic campaign promises.  Remember Bones Wilson, Ron Livingston, and Blake Robinson was also campaign promises. 



Please make your vote count.  We do not need four more years of the same.

  1. Cavnar is only wishing. According to a online poll...cavnar is in front of owens by a little over300 points which is not much. Cavnar is. Not sheriff material. Puckett will make a great sheriff

  2. Didn't Cavnar say 4 years ago he thought Ana was doing a great job? How am I supposed to trust him to hire deputies of character when he couldn't see the slime that has infested the Office the last 8 years, Mr. I Tell It Like It Is?

    1. We have some great deputies in MCSO. But, a few need to go, including some reserve deputies. A certain candidate has attached himself with Ana followers and the good ole boy system. It's a major concern because if we want change this candidate does not need to be elected.

    2. Tell us who you believe this candidate is please. I cannot believe any one would consider hiring these lying crooks.

    3. Puckett has been seen having lunch meetings with Larry Berzett and Ron Livingston. Berzett has even went to the extreme of sending his minions out to employees houses and if they have a political sign that doesn’t support Puckett those employees are notified that if they don’t remove their sign then they are no longer employed at MCSO. Sounds to me like Puckett is wanting to keep the good ole boy system going and that will only give the SO 4 more years of the hell they are already in if he’s elected.

    4. Obviously this comment was posted by a Cavnar supporter. Just like the rest of his campaign it is steeped in rumor and enuendo against one other candidate. This campaign has unfortunately cause me to lose respect for Sergeant Cavnar. Also, if you are not a law enforcement officer don’t make your Facebook page look like you are.

    5. Funny how Cavnar supporters are getting labeled yet every candidate has supports bashing other candidates except the one they support

    6. Have yet to hear a single negative word from the supporters of the other candidates. Clairday, Moore, Owens, and Puckett seem to run on their own merit. I have personally heard two stalwart Cavnar supporters knowingly tell untruths about candidates, one candidate in particular. A few weeks ago I viewed a post by one of Cavnar's supporters bashing another candidate in the Facebook page What's Happening in Hartselle.

    7. Ah yes What’s Happening in Hartselle. Did you know that Mr Swafford whom is on Puckett’s campaign committee is a moderator of that page. Did you also know that Mr Swafford is the reason the admin had to make the post about politics being that Mr Swafford wouldn’t allow any candidates to share their post on that page except the one he supports. There are a lot of things that are said on that page so I wouldn’t take it to heart. I guess Childers supporters bash other candidates since you didn’t name him in your list. It’s not hard to tell you’re a Puckett supporter without saying a name. I have personally had Puckett supports verbally degrade me for having a different candidates magnet on my car. I’ve even had snide remarks made to me by Owens supporters because I don’t support their candidate. One thing you have to remember is just because it’s not being put on Facebook doesn’t mean it’s not happening. When you surround yourself with like minded people no one ever hears anything bad about someone but the moment you step out of that circle here comes the Calvary. I like you was a Puckett supporter till I seen who was supporting him. I’ve seen the SO slowly crumble because of the last 2 sheriffs in office and those men and women don’t deserve to have that continue on in those conditions. They deserve a sheriff that will put them first and a sheriff that isn’t worried about which friend they can hire for this position and that position. This person and that person doesn’t know the struggle the employees know so how does it make any sense for a sheriff to bring their own people in to run the show?

    8. As an admin on What's Happening in Hartselle I can attest that the above comment is incorrect. Mr. Swafford suggested in January that we prohibit political posts as several other facebook groups have done. We decided to leave it up to each admin as to what they approve or deny. However two weeks ago the group was being flooded by political posts.... one in particular (14 in one day). At that point we as a group decided to prohibit ALL political posts...to the approval of most members of the group.

    9. Sam do I need to go back and pull admin records to show that Swafford was the main moderator on the page deleting pending post from other candidates supporters all the while he was approving Puckett’s son sharing his Dad post. I mean I know who I support but that doesn’t mean being a moderator or admin over a page I’m going to deny someone else the ability to share their candidates post

    10. What's the point? It was posted on May 14th that all political posts are not allowed, Sam has made that apparent. Why argue and prove your point when it is moot now? Let's all be grown ups, use your own pages for your candidate and be respectful. Is that so hard? Geesh.

  3. Cavnar does not like the word Transparency. As a voter that's concerning to me when he says he keeps his word. Additionally, he's not taking a salary. This is troublesome because Ana Franklin didn't apparently need one either. She skimmed off of everything.

    If you don't like the word transparent because others abuse it THAN;

    Use the word, but prove your dislike by your actions. That is a promise you can make.

    Can you promise that you won't take ANY funds and post a quarterly report that's not cooked?

    1. What a goober post. He did say transparency is the most abused word in politics he prefers the word honesty. He didn’t say that he wouldn’t accept a salary he said he wouldn’t accept Ray longs huge $25,000.00 pay raise. Get it right and stop spreading lies.

  4. Puckett has already tapped BsrtleBa to be his Chief Deputy. Corndogs will be served at the victory party.

    1. That’s just rumor since Puckett stated on his Facebook political page that his chief deputy wasn’t a former sheriff

    2. See another lie!

  5. The Cavnar folks have become a group of bullies. He's wanted Sheriff for too long. His campaign consists of 2 things: start rumors and offer anyone a position. Sad

    1. Cavnar isn’t the only one starting rumors and promising anyone positions. Each candidate has their own group of people they want helping run the sheriff office if elected. Each candidate has their supporters saying this or that about another candidate. Personally Cavnar has some supporters that are way more passionate about him being sheriff than others but you have that in every single campaign group not just the sheriffs race. Just look at the Governors race. Look at how the senate race went. Look at how the county commission District 1 race is going. Look at how the district 9 representatives race is going. See this whole campaign season has been ugly so to label it down to just 1 candidate and his supporters is a ridiculous.

    2. The difference is...if one particular candidate is elected we are back to square one. Do you know how many people want this candidate to win so they continue "pretending" they are law enforcement. The ones that run around with uniforms and mean mug anyone. You know who you are. It's degrading to the good, hard working deputies at the MCSO, who have training, and experience. I ask the new Sheriff to make sure we have experienced, trained, respectable law enforcement.

    3. Uncle Ron Puckett is by far the best man for the job. You can lie and try to pretend and make stuff up but come June 5 you will see what everyone else is gonna see. As far as hiring Bartlett back into law enforcement you can forget that to. He is done in that field. Never again will he be involved.
