All I have heard about Diestmann is that he is an alocoholic and all of the guys at Cabool PD do not like him.

I hope you have your facts right, because starting something about a person, could cause you some problems. Names and times if you can !!!!

wORKING IN THE P.A. OFFICE AND HAVING A FOOT IN THE DOOR DOESN'T QUAILIFY A PERSON TO HOLD THE OFFICE OF SHERIFF. AN AS FOR YOU, YOU REALLY LOW TO TALK ABOUT A MANS WIFE, VOTE FOR " WOLF "

thats not low its the truth, a middle aged woman has no buiness dressing like a hooker especially when her husband is trying to be the next sheriff. and as for the experience of shannon he is a better man than anyone in this race, he doesnt fill ppl full of crap just for a vote, and he sure as heck doesn't reek of alcohol everytime he's around. and it doesnt say much when the people who know wolf want to get rid of him! VOTE SHANNON

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INFORMATION FROM? GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU WRITE IT. AS FOR WOLFS WIFE SHE IS A GREAT PERSON AND A DEVOTED WIFE AND MOTHER. WHY WOULD YOU WRITE THAT ABOUT HER?

i didn't say anything about her character, i said she dresses like a hooker, and that is the truth, anyone knows if you are going to be in the public eye, you have no buisness being middle aged and acting and dressing like a teenager. she may be a great mom or whatever but i dont want wolf in office if him and his family can not even set a good example. to me she made a bad first impression....

and it is pretty sad when you have to post comments on here defending your husband and yourself because there are plenty of comments here and elsewhere that are obviously from wolf or his wife one of the two.

Mike Shannon is a nice guy. The sheriff is not a "trainee" position. I wouldnt want a intern doing open heart surgery on me. At least demand basic qualifications from the law enforcement leader of the county. This is no place to learn. Experience is what we need. Hedlesten is fair, honest, dependable, and the most qualified for the job. Hands on experience and leadership is what we need. The people finally have a chance to improve the law enforcement in this county and Hedlesten is the right man for the job.
whatever

I have known the Dietsmanns from the time they moved here from California. To call Wolf an alcoholic is a laugh. Have I ever seen him drink? Answer is yes. I don't recall ever seeing him drunk. As for whether he is liked at the Cabool PD, I have no idea.

You are stooping pretty by saying that Tina Dietsmann dresses like a hooker. You obviously have not seen too many hookers. She is an attractive woman with a good figure that can dress as she darn well pleases. Can you explain what her attire has to do with the sheriff's race?

Good grief.......grow up and quit the mud slinging.

stooping pretty low? no i'm speaking the truth which most of you seem to be ignoring. and as for the dress code,,,it says alot about a person, and i dont want that example for our county...as as for a trainee position, shannon is just as experienced as the rest, being in law enforcement for a little time doesnt make you an expert, however being in for 20 plus years doesnt make you one either!

O.K. I have lived here in Howell County all my life so I do have an honest opinion on the matter.

Dietsmann - never been a officer in Howell County one minute in his life.

Hedelsten - worked in the highway patrol flying airplanes in Iowa or Idaho and is trying to buy the election.

Shannon - Good guy home grown. Yes he works out of the PA's office but he has never worked in and out of a police car. He has not put in the time it takes to climb to the sheriffs job. He just has no experience except being a court baliff and bad check chaser.

Reid - another home grown guy. I know R.D.'s family and through them I have met R.D. he has the experience he has worked as a jailor, dispatched, a police officer, and a detective. If I needed help from a police officer he would be the one I call because he just knows the people and knows what he is doing.

My vote will be for Reid he has worked his way through the ranks and he should be our next sheriff.

You almost had everything right. Except.....I like RD and I like RC. Every since they took over the sheriffs department has sucked. Sorry, and unless you ride a bike you are not going to get promoted. Right now to many chiefs not enough indians. If RD gets in same ol story. I agree with every other opinion you have but you left out two, guess you think they don't have a chance. Probably don't.

I think R.D. will run the sheriff's office as a type that will not be a yes man to the courthouse and the quill.

i have a comment and some will not like it. 1st. why doesn't wolf use his full name? second: when it comes to a sheriff experience is important, but just putting up years doesn't tell the whole story of the experience. what did they do in those years of experience. be specific not vague. also i would like a sheriff that puts his heart into it. not one that beefs up his retirement or wants to bring other far off believes to our part of the country. be sure who you are voting for, your life may depend on it.

Talking about someone'w wife is pretty low. She is not running for office. The radio stations have sponsored a debate and forum for the canditates. Lets see who participates and what their answers are. You as voters need to know facts, not slanted put-up opinions and mud slinging. Listen to what they have to say and be smart enough to think and vote for the right man for the job. Everybody has friends in high places. What if they are better friends than you are. Things won't go your way. Lets get someone who is fair, honest and knows what they are doing. Let us not be led by the so-called powers that be that think they run this county, and have a candidate who is not qualified shoved down our throats but can be controlled by those who think they are in power. Judge Evans showed the "powers" at the last election that the people are in control. Lets not loose control now. There are only two candidates that are qualified for the job. Pick one of them. The only thing better would be if Hedlesten would choose Diestman as his Chief Deputy. Then maybe things could turn around. Use your head people ! Vote Hedlesten.
