    I am proud to say I didn’t vote for Morgan the 1st or 2nd time around. See, here’s the problem…..not enough national news time in past few years, so he feels there’s nothing for him to do. Well, except showing up on Blab every other week, with the SAME STORIES.

    Sheriff Morgan has pulled all of his officers from all Federal task forces because of a promotion of one individual at the US Attorneys office. Tell me how you expect anything to be accomplished when the chief law enforcement officer for this county acts like a middle school bully who didn’t get his way on the playground. One day the citizens will realize just how much damage this one man has done to the agency. Why doesn’t the media do a story about this? Easy to verify with a couple of phone calls!!

    @ EPenn, With you on this, no pesky ‘Citizens’ and an awful lot of Brass there with Capt’n Crunch.

    Board of County Commissioners, where were YOU when this important meeting was taking place?
