The Brown County Peace Keepers shows that DW is too busy trying to get his 15 minutes of fame. Go JB.

josh black should have been appointed chief of police in mt. orab instead of brian mount. josh is a good guy and fair which is more than can be said about the current cheif of police who you can't trust to be fair & impartial with anyone.

Hell D.w. is to busy doing side jobs thru out the week to make any peace in the county. i had a matter a few months back over someone breaking into my garage and we knew wh it was, they did'nt do shit. i called D.W. and left several message's and no resonse, a few of them were pretty nasty and shit did'nt get a call back. Chicken Sh!$ is what he is. If you need him i guess u can find him at the local lumber yard.

OK so everyone has an opinion and seems many of you don't want DW Or JB as sheriff? So who would you suggest run and you could get behind.

I think both have several years of LE experience behind them. Sheriff Wenninger, has had to fight many battles in court over the years to stay in office and each time the courts ruled in his favor. He has been the sitting Sheriff since 2000.
Sheriff Wenninger also has 20 plus years in LE and also has attended many years of training.

On a side note Brown county peacekeepers was not meant to be a show like COPS Or any other show. It was the producers hope to show LE In a Rural/Farm setting and the lives of those who were in LE not the arrest per say. Plus unless you are blind one could say Brown County has a huge drug problem that probably sucks up most of the money thru enforcement and incarceration. That did seem to be a theme in the few shows that aired. I think the Sheriff came across as a personable and fair man in dealing with many he did come across. I know some will disagree. But this is what this is about we can disagree to agree but at the end of the day I will respect your thoughts. Please show me the same courtesy.

Lt. Josh Black has been in LE for 20years and in public safety 30 years as both a firefighter and EMT.He is also an instructor with several schools in physical fitness and defensive tactics used to keep those in LE alive. He also has been trained by the FBI,DEA and Dept of Homeland Security.

The mayor of Sardinia is also running for the democratic nod for Sheriff. He is not in LE currently but I am not sure? He has many years of experience and much advanced training. His name is Todd Bumbalough.

So for those who say Brown county is doomed I think for once you have a choice of 3 very qualified persons running for the office.

The Sheriff's dept no matter if Sheriff Wenninger is re-elected or a new person gets in. They will always face budget restraints and have to do what they can with the limited amount of funds the county can provide. In 2006 the budget was cut drastically. The Sheriff can only do so much.

I will also say that some of the comments and name calling might indicate that some of you have had a run in with the Sheriff and Lt Black. How about we keep this discussion on point without the name calling etc. I really would like to hear who you think can do a good job.

I would also like opinions of the 2 running for prosecutor current Jessica Little and former prosecutor Thomas Grennan. I personally think Jessica Little is doing a good job. Grennan was the prosecutor who had an opponent in the last election to get the democratic nomination to run and he didn't win. So 4 years have passed and he is back do you think it'd be good, or a step backwards?

Looking for valid clean cut and common sense opinions? Would you like to see all the candidates have a debate and have the public present to ask questions and get to know them better? I think that would be awesome. Maybe we could ask the News democrat to provide that forum.

I will stand corrected If I am wrong. The Sheriff may have 15 years in LE not 20. Does anyone know?



PS I will call the News Democrat tomorrow to ask what is the possibility of a debate being set up.

Ok so, AJ you make some good points however having worked in the county and being from here I know both candidates and to be honest Dwayne Weninnger is a nice guy however I see that their is alot of times that he only has one deputy out in the county at a time. While you have other deputy's setting at the office doing nothing and the Sheriff you hear the road guy out runing his but off. I believe in a small county if the sheriff is not busy he needs to be out there picking up calls along with his chief deputy. This is not Hamilton county or Franklin county the sheriff is not to busy to be out handling calls. I went in one day to speak with Weninnger and his vehicle was outside he is the hardest person to speak with and I also dont like that. On the part about Josh Black he has never worked at anyother departments than Mount Orab Police dept. I dont know that he realizes as the Sheriff your first responsibilites by law are maintaining a jail and serving the courts, you can not go out an write speeding tickets to make money for the department like the village of Mount Orab does. How ever all I know is im happy eaither way this race does not effect me because I now work in clermont county.

The job of the sheriff is to be the jailer. They are not for patrolling.

The office of the Sheriff is responsible for running the county jail,serving subpeonas,warrants,writs etc.He is also responsible for Courthouse security in 2 of the 3 courthouses.Patrolling and crime investigation/prevention is secondary.The department has consistantly made more arrests with less personel/assets than in 2002 before budget cuts hit.Training and equipment are paid for within budget constraints,or with grant assistance.There are times when there may be one deputy out on the road,but that's what happens when you have people in court,or off sick,or on vacation.The Sheriff is the person whom is the figurehead of the department.If he has competent supervisors in place,(and he does)then papers get served,order is maintained in the court,prisoners are transported,calls get handled in order of priority,cases get solved,people go to jail.This is taking place.You cannot make everyone happy,some people are not satisfied no matter what.The Sheriff is working well within the budget allowed to him,although some things cannot be anticipated.Some people will claim I am biased.I am not of his political party.I have not always seen eye to eye with the Sheriff,but I support him 100%.We used to have a saying when I was a youngster.If it's not broken,then don't fix it.

All I know is half of all Brown County Deputies are fat lazy old and worthless.. Hopefully Josh Black can make a change in the whole department.. I know they are short staffed, but when one of the arrive, and its hard for old fat ass Deputy Stamper to get out of his car.. What in the Hell can he protect.. Police officers shouldn't have to call for back up, just because need help once they get to scene..
