Of two minds on sheriff issue
Placeholder Image
For half my life, I’ve wondered why in the world we still elect sheriffs in this country. I began wondering about that while working for a radio station 25 years ago in Dahlonega, Ga. Dahlonega sits in the -- no offense to anyone from there -- unfortunately named Lumpkin County. The sheriff while I worked there from the fall of 1987 to late summer 1988 had been sheriff for a whopping 24 years.
