So because its biggest in population, the sheriff should focus more on the town (which is city cops Job) over the rest of the county? What about all the people that live in the county? Did you mean county seat? I think that's what you meant, but I'm not sure. Heber is the biggest city in cleburne county... But seeing as its a tiny town, it doesn't take up a lot I land mass. So maybe you should get your facts straight, because of deputies are focusing on the city, what's going to happen to the rural areas?
From the dam to the Eden isle is a pretty big area for a smart town.15-20 minute drive

That's because Marty's son doesn't live with him nor does he have custody of him.
Lets see, if he's such a great guy and capable of restoring peace and enforcing the law, why can't he control his child who doesn't live with him? Why doesn't he have custody? If he can only control and enforce laws on those who live with him, is the whole county going to move into his house? Just wondering.

Fact is, the county deputies should spend their time patrolling out in the county. Let the city police handle the city unless they need help. There are far more roads and neighborhoods to patrol outside the city that need attention. When's the last time you saw a deputy drive through your neighborhood with his windows down, listening, smelling, greeting people and being a public servant? Things need to change for the better.

Do you people really think Josh will be able to fix a thing. Not only because he has no experience but also because just like now with Marty in charge he will still be short handed. So lets analyze that problem being a deputy is a low paying job were men and women put there safety at risk. And for what so all of you whining people can complain that they didn't respond to your call of a barking dog, or what ever other issue you may have quick enough. In addition there is typically very few deputies on for the entire county. Now tell me this all of you people complaining tell me are you willing to pay more taxes so more deputies can be hired or wow maybe even earn a better living for there families. I find it sad that if a deputy doesn't respond fast enough or god forbid they don't arrest your dope dealing neighbor simply because you call and tell them that you just know they deal dope they are worthless and it's poor leadership. However let them show up to your house because your neighbor complains or the write you a speeding ticket. They are aholes who harass you because they are on a power trip and they need better leadership. Marty has done a good job as sheriff and I hope he wins and continues to do just that. If for whatever reason Marty does not win all you people who think Josh is the next great thing get exactly what you deserve for voting someone with no experience into that position.

What part is being so neglected? Everyone complains that deputies are around heber which is where there office is the courts are the gas pumps they fill there cars at. Everybody says heber has police officers but what surrounds heber? The county! Now Greersferry has officers so does quitman and concord so I guess the deputies should avoid those places as well as heber or at least according to everyone complaining. So somebody let the deputies know they just need to stay in between all these areas or in prim so they don't help out in areas that have officers already. I swear sometimes I question the thoughts of some

Let's see? How about the neighborhoods around Mt. Aire, Ridgecrest, Down Hwy 5, Old Hwy 25, Green Forrest, West Pangburn, I can go on but I suppose you are too busy thinking your thoughts are superior to ours.

I heard the same thing. Mike Green I believe was the name. Our paper has gone down hill since Louis Short left. At least he wasn't afraid to report the goings on. I'm not sure why we even have a paper anymore. It's more of a community center newsletter if you ask me.

Marty tried and failed to keep his family intact. His kids are reckless and have absolutely no direction. His police force is a joke. While they do let people off easy sometimes when they cooperate, they abuse their power, get nothing done, and will pull anyone over just to steal a gram of weed or get a better look at the 19 year old female driver. Time for a change. They aren't serving the town, they're out for tickets and nothing else.

We had a chance to have the very best sheriff that anyone could ask for. His name was David smith and we could have voted him into office, he served over 30 yrs to our fair community inside and outside of the city limits. We the people didn't vote him in as sheriff so we could have a safer county instead we voted in Marty so David got the boot as chief of police and demoted to city works director only to have Jackie fire him. Most of you people are clueless to everything that surrounds you! I hope you get who you vote for but the obvious choice was not voted in so stop all of your complaining and ask the right person to run instead of voting for the lesser of two crooks!!

I agree with you! It's sad that we don't realize til after election that a mistake was made! I myself thought that David would have been a damn good sheriff! The experience and people he knows that could get stuff done!! To bad he probably won't run again. If he does he's got my vote!!

I doubt if we could talk David in to running again. He was pretty disenchanted with the last results and has said he wouldn't do it again. Sometimes people change their minds over time. It wouldn't hurt to start working on him for 2014. No matter who wins this one David would be a great replacement for them.

I agree with David for sheriff, but Marty needs to go! Things in the department need an overhaul and needs to be shaken back to reality a bit! David will have a much better chance in two years if Marty's foothold is taken away now! He's got all the druggies and idiots pulling for him. We need to show those people they are not welcome here and we want our county back! We want professional law enforcement! We want public servants, not non thinking puppets on a power trip who gossip all over town and chase teenager girls! Look to the future people!

Marty Moss has got to go. And he will because the only reason he's still there is because he has been unopposed for way to long. Goodbye Moss and start packing your bags cause your days are numbered as sheriff. See ya! Josh will make us proud just watch. Any things better than who we have!

If it is an ongoing investigation, they cannot release any details. That's just standard procedure in any town.
Besides, with the way rumors fly round here, who knows if it's even true?!
