These are some of the work related items Sheriff Pennington has accomplished.  It hs taken time to do alot of this ground work and NOW is NOT the time to switch gears with someone who has LIMITED knowledge, skills, training or experience.  Please ask yourself a question...IF the opponent wants to become Sheriff so bad WHY in the world hasn't he attempted to gain law enforcement knowlege, training, experience or sometype of classes in law enforcement to better himself to becoma a viable opponent?  WHY?  Four years--2 elections and NO attempt to better himself.


The Sheriff's position is one of understanding the US Constitution, the Federal, State and local laws because he is dealing with peoples liberties & lives.  To have a person SURROUND HIMSELF with so called experts is a disaster waiting to happen to Saline County Citizens.  We do not need to regress but be allowed to move forward in a positive manner and grow. 


Sheriff Bruce Pennington has worked very hard for you, please afford him the opportunity to continue serving the Citizens of Saline County.

I completely agree, Evan! I think there should be a "time-out" automatically assigned to anyone that constantly posts negative, inflammatory, or comments otherwise determined to be jackassery. Maybe they should be treated as if they were children since they are acting as such...?
Comment by Evan Prickett on May 2, 2012 at 11:43pm
No problem here Mr. Duck bill, ill let Mr. Publius' constant bashing and negativitey speak for itself sir.
Comment by John Publius on May 2, 2012 at 11:31pm

So Bill, I just noticed that there were no posts for crimes solved between 12.2.2010 and 2.3.2012. I guess they were off line? These guys are tired.

Comment by John Publius on May 2, 2012 at 11:26pm

MAYBE he should have kept some of the money to catch theives who plague the county. Actually investigate crimes. Send a deputy not a phone call. Press 1 if they stole your T.V.  Press 2 if they stole your camera

Evan, what is your problem?  John just posted a FACT that was not negative at all. 

Comment by Evan Prickett on May 2, 2012 at 10:42pm
Mr Publius sir, do you ever have anything positive to say other than bad mouth people and throw mud? Please sir, I dont support any canidate, but you clearly have a motive here based upon the fact thats all you post about. Try something positive sir, you will find it refreshing.
