November 7, 2007 Overton Era over in Franklin Co. Many thought that Billy Overton would be a shoe-in as the next Sheriff of Franklin County since his father is considered a legend as sheriff.

I hope that the county enforcement will remain the same with the newly elected sheriff Hunt. Our county under the Overton Era has been excellent, and having being helped personally by the Overton's like many other's in our community, it's sad to see the reign end. Many of us have experienced the respect of the office through many of their good deed's; namely their attendence through times of death of our loved one's, attention to the people and their need's, and the constant comfort knowing that the office makes our county safe. Good luck Sheriff Hunt, and may you and the office you control, continue to support, and help us through all the worries of this world we live in today.

I think it's great to see a change in management in the sheriff's office. Although Sheriff Overton has done a wonderful job through the years, it is time for someone else to lead the county into the twenty first century. Sheriff Hunt in my opinion has greater insight on the illegal activity throughout the county because he was out there in the trenches every day doing old fashioned police work......investigating, not sitting at a desk all day like his opponent did. At any rate the county has spoken and good luck Sheriff Hunt!!
