Newsmaker of 2018: Sheriff Ana Franklin's tumultuous year began with earlier actions

Blogger Comments:  Folks, for some of us it has been 8 long hard years dealing with the likes of Sheriff Ana Franklin.  From the moment she took office she had big plans to change the SO and change it she did.  The whistleblower met Doug Key shortly after the sheriff terminated him.  The whistleblower went to the hearings after hearing some of the actions Franklin had taken.  It was clear early on that the sheriff had her favorites and unless you were part of the "in group" you didn't mean much to the sheriff as many deputies and SO employees past and present could attest to.

During the Key hearings, Franklin testified that she had an almost BS degree.  It was an almost BS; it was 100% percent BS as in Bull****.  Franklin could not recall any of the classes she had taken.  Folks, when you go to school long enough to earn an "almost" Bachelor of Science Degree, you remember the classes.  Love to see her transcript.  The whistleblower doesn't have a college degree.  Working your way through the ranks and taking every class you are offered to get ahead sticks in your memory.  It isn't college but you dang sure remember where you were when you started and the level of success those classes afforded you.  

The hearing was painful but the one thing the whistleblower came away with was the sheriff was arrogant.  She did not like to be challenged, and if you got in her way she would (this is a joke) run over you with a bush hog, a bus, or (no joke) make you pay dearly for your actions.  Our opinions over the years did not change much.

The more we worked on getting the word out to the citizens, who at the time believed the sheriff was nothing fighting crime and getting the job done, the more obstacles we ran into.

All being said.  The sheriff may never spend time in jail for her actions and with misdemeanors, she feels that she won.  Folks, nobody won.  The sheriff likes to claim victory each time a misdemeanor comes her way.  That isn't winning.  The sheriff should feel embarrassed and humiliated.  

What we have at hand is a new year, a new beginning, and a bright future.  Sheriff-elect Ron Puckett has a great bunch of deputies despite everything the sheriff put them through.  It's almost over folks.  We believe Puckett to be a fair man and will run the sheriff's office in a manner that the employees will not feel humiliated, the inmates will eat food that is nutritious and healthy, and the SO office personnel and clerks will be able to relax and do their jobs without worry of retaliation.  

We really haven't discussed the article in the Daily we encourage you to read it and go through the history of Sheriff Ana Franklin while in office.  It's a miracle we all survived.

  2. Ana always wanted to be famous, first female sheriff in Alabama, thought everyone adored her, thought she could even get away with murder, she could break every law, just because she is Ana Franklin. She thought she would be Sheriff as long as she desired, like her buddy Blakely. Well Ana, you are famous, but not in the way you thought it would be. Haha. Number 1 story of 2018, crooked, stealing, lying, sheriff of Morgan County. Thanks for giving Morgan County and Alabama a black eye.

    1. She was not first female sheriff in Alabama. There have been several before her. She may have been the first in Morgan County.

  4. photographed and posted on this blog and represented to belong to Ana Franklin!

    This property has been in my family for almost 80 years! I have written the blogger and asked that she remove the photographs and publish a statement that she misled you followers. she has done nothing to correct the information! I do not know anyone on either side of this mess and have no idea how they targetted our place in Saraland.

    How can you believe anything published by people who charter a plane and publish 550 photos of a persons private property then claim it belongs to a sherriff at the other end of the state? please! This is craziness!!!!

  7. You just described Lawrence County Sheriff Gene Mitchell to a T. If you challenge him or stand up to him your ass will be arrested. There has to be a class, it is not possible that everyone of these sheriffs are the same, someone has to be training them this way.
