I an hoping that with God and Curtis we will gain controll of the drug problem in our town. Curtis please do not let 8 deputies sit aroud all day and let the night life take over the few deputies that brave the night shift and weekends. Bob is a wonderful man, but has not proven to do anything for this county other than to sit around the office and talk about things. Talk is cheap so please lets rally together to overcome drugs that are destroying our families.
