More rain last night. That is a good thing. The heat was broken anyway, and the cool feels good. .Cool is, of course, relative.

The general elections are coming. Our local political scene is shifting. The present sheriff is not running again, he’s after a State Police job. Five deputies are gearing up to make a run on the office.

One of the deputies, a Captain in rank, has moved into the Under-Sheriff’s job. Which is somewhat akin to Vice-President. It is un-clear, as a while back I asked the Captain if he wanted to be sheriff and he said no.

Times change.

The recent rash of solutions to crimes in a couple of areas have been subscribed to two  of the deputies considering running.

Those are to their credit, as they should be, but I’m a skeptic. Even so the solutions and charges have come in over the past year, it is still, mmmm, convenient. Generally speaking I’d say if the dudes had that information and waited to act until politically considered, then hell will freeze before a citizen gets action on mundane things as the political winds whistle.

There are a couple running that probably don’t have the money nor the influence of family in the area; and one that hasn’t the formal education one might hope to see. He does have some experience as law enforcement and some time in the community.

Well, it’s time to start talking to people about it. That Sheriff’s job is crucial in a limited community like our county.

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
