A simpler time

Here is my take on the law escort fee for funerals. I agree there should be a fee, just not as much as proposed. It was stated that it takes deputies away from their patrol. If this is the case the school board has to be charged for the traffic control before and after school, because we have more schools in this county than SROs to handle this task so that takes deputies away from their patrol. There has been times when there are two or three deputies in the highway at Jackson School in the afternoon just standing around. 

Also, local businesses have to be charged for the escorts to and from the bank when they call for one. If we have to charge for one, lets charge for all. I remember as a child the late Sheriff Hector DeBruhl would lead most of the processions himself as a respectful gesture from the KCSO. I guess those were simpler times.
