Award Nominee


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.

As always, send us your feedback and tips at


  1. Great job Connor! Tell the truth.

  2. Conner you are more than welcome in Morgan County. We have a shitstorm going on. Ashley Rempkus can tell ya all about it. Go get them

  3. Previous Sheriff lies to honorable Judge Thompson...then her money hungry lawyer turns around and sued the victims. Break it wide open.

  4. A little tip Connor. She has the estate but his it. Nothing in her name.

  5. Nobody else seems to want to step up. Note handoff to Pence. Dig...get them

  6. She and Huey Sharp are owners of a home in Decatur according to report last week
