Saw them bashing in the other posts, but I think this is the best one to respond in. Clinton is the first sheriff we've had in a VERY long time that didn't get rich being sheriff. Seems I remember hearing about former deputies being involved in covering up for drug dealers and thieves. Seems they were also credited with sleeping with others wives. Is there anything to that?

Just curious, where does the money come from for all the political signs & newspaper ads in a local election. Do the candidates have to disclose where the money comes from? If so where do you see a list of contributors?

Go down to the courthouse, rather what used to be city hall. It's all there.

No. That would be the ones that had to be let go. Or the cocky ones that pout and quit after being demoted for their stupid mistakes.

Not sure what all the hype is about. The Osborn who is running for sheriff IS NOT the same one who was involved in the incident before. The man running for sheriff is a great person, who is very involved with the community through the FFA (Future Farmers of America for all you move-ins). Him and his wife are very nice, Christian people who work hard daily. Both would be very quick to help anyone who was in need of anything. I have seen firsthand that when they helped the FFA students transport their animals and show equipment to shows all over the state. He gave students who had no means to participate be able to do something that would have been impossible if it had not been for his generosity.
Just because someone has the same last name or even are related to someone who has done wrong does not mean they are as corrupt. If this was so, most of us would be ashamed to show our faces due to the skeletons in our families closets.

With every election, with every opponent hoping to fill the position, there are promises made. Anyone would be foolish to think otherwise.
I would be interested in knowing the sheriff's opponents agenda. What are his intentions? Who has he promised jobs to?

Who are you trying to fool? Ask him what happened to the stolen tractor that he found on Dean's property. That is the same Dean that had his house shot up later. Why was he in Baldwin? He was there for the very same reason that Dean got his house shot up. Eddie, Bear,and Dean are all connected. The only reason he was not involved in the scandal that we just went through was because Eddie sent him packing to keep him away from his woman. Yep, he would bring rutting season back to the Sheriff's office. Fine christian folks these Osborns.

I've just been informed that the sheriffs opponent is no longer working in Baldwin. I wonder if this is fact or fiction.
