AL.COM reporter Connor Sheets (we've quoted him a lot) did a great job digging into this story and uncovered even more alleged crimes. Up here we like to think that the Daily's Eric Fleishauer did a terrific job with the whole sordid Sheriff's shenanigans and not just the inmate food fund hijacking. Perhaps a Pulitzer?
Happy Tuesday, Reckon crew. We’ll start this week off with a huge congrats to our investigative reporter, Connor Sheets, who has been named a finalist for the Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting for his stories on Alabama’s “Beach House Sheriff.” It’s a tremendous honor for a series that made a big difference in Alabama last year.
Oh and, uh, turns out he is also a finalist for the Selden Ring Award too. He's kind of a big deal.
