With this story being printed...alot of us would like to know what happened with the Rogers County Jail Administrator that just resigned? This was the top person that actually ran the jail. Why did he resign and were there any reasons provided to the county commisioners? Was this another Walton casualty? With this jail money shortfall, seems that the jail administrator would be the key person to ask questions to but he is gone....What Happened??

Who is in charge of the Rogers County Jail now? Was this administrator just a paper pusher or was he actually running the jail? Anyone know?? The Claremore Progress sure didn't report on any of this major change in the jail administration.

Tom Howse is his name and he was fine for the administration when he was dumping mail that Starkey was sending to inmates. Now, 3 years later, he is let go for "overspending" interesting.... COME ON 2012 Election Year!!!

Just another cluster by the Walton administration. He can't seem to make much of anything run smooth. You would think after over two years in office he might have this figured out. But wait....his godfather, Jerry Prather, isn't there to hold his hand....oh well......just another cluster!
