Folks, we hear that Ron Puckett is ready to hit the ground running on the day he is sworn in. We encourage all of our readers to get in line and support Morgan Counties Top Cop. Puckett is going to need all the help he can get from the employees that have been brave enough to stick it out. There are some really good folks left in the SO to help soften the blow. There are a lot of folks that Ana couldn't break. That's good. Others had no choice but to leave.
Now it is time the county looks forward to our new sheriff. We will continue to blog on current events involving Sheriff Franklin and the others but in the scheme of things they can do no harm to the employees, citizens, inmates, or others at this point. You may ask as Hillary did "at this point what does it matter". Folks, it matters a lot. We would love to see justice played out on this earth but there are no guarantees. Our justice may just be that Sheriff Ana Franklin is no longer our top cop. Why she or others sent Private Investigator Dawn Dixon down to Georgia is a disgrace, unethical, and unconscionable. In our opinion. Why would you try and talk someone into changing their statement? It is an uncomforting thought that people do those kinds of things to a witness but it is really no different than those who watched the FBI office to see who was going across the river.
One day at a time, wait and see what happens next, and look at each day as a new challenge and not as a disappointment. We realize that the next few months and years are going to be as difficult as the past few years but for different purposes. We will continue our positive hopes that our county will be restored to a better place to live, new jobs and growth comes to our county, and citizens return and or choose to move to our county.
Keep your head held high. Look forward to the future and find an adventure in each day. We are...
