Can anyone explain why our Sheriffs dept is so far over budget? I mean the deputies do look good in thief old uniforms. Why were they given a uniform allowance when they are way over budget. I think if the the judges are gonna give them a uniform allowance every office in the courthouse should be given the same. I think the sheriffs dept needs a federal auditor to come in and examine thief books. Something is not right!

Who says the Sheriffs Dept is over budget? Haven't heard that one. The WHOLE county budget is low but I'm sure it's not as low as you are claiming. The Sheriffs Dept IS the only department that brought IN $400,000 in profit from holding prisoners from all over the state, however. Wherever you are getting your information probably has this information as well. Perhaps you didn't read far enough. There are MANY ways all offices could cut probably. Clay County doesn't need two courthouses for one thing. That is costing taxpayers a lot more money than any uniform allowance you are complaining about. Fuel for elected officials to drive back and forth, electricity and heat, upkeep, etc.

How is that a bad answer? It's a monthly report. Public information. If they are curious....the information is there.

Go to the courthouse and askto see the buget spending for the Sheriff's Dept. It is public record. Gerald is not even running the dept. His Chief Deputy is so he can spend more time with his girl friend down in Paragould. And his poor wife is very ill and that is the respect she gets for putting up with all his beatings and screaming matches and loosing her home. She could walk away but chooses to stay. I kninda feel sorry for her but she has the options and chooses to stay.

feel sorry for her? we reap what we sew. for yrs Kay had men on the side everyone knew it. if he has a gf now at least she knows how he felt back then. I don't know why any one would want to date the a- hole. the entire family is a bunch of losers and the daughter in laws are the county whores.
