Dear Editor and Disabled Citizens,

Metcalfe County Warning

What I am saying here has nothing to do with the run for Sheriff, but I need help.

I am 85 years old and had to put my wife in NHC with Alzheimer’s, so I was staying with my daughter. In June, my house was broken into and the gas was stolen from my truck. I went to see the sheriff. He said he was sorry, but could not help because he only had 3 men. So I asked that when in the area could he could show his presence, again he said he was sorry.

My house has been broken into 4 times during July and August. I have done everything I can to board up the place. If I can’t depend on the law, who can I depend on? If I buy a gun, lay in wait, and shoot them, the law will put me in jail. So what do I do?

Just maybe we need to think about ending the sheriff’s department. What good are they?

Richard C. Preve

    I’m sorry to hear that, Mr. Preve… The Sheriff here in Glasgow is a no-action Sheriff too. But one way I feel that you could end the Sheriffs’ department’s control over the county areas as a separate entity, is to advocate for Edmonton and Metcalfe to consolidate into a Consolidated City-County! This is such the case in both Lexington and Louisville.

    I hope you will be taken seriously, and that those punks who disrespect our cherished elders such as yourself will be brought to justice!

    I wish you the very best, Mr. Preve. Don’t take this disrespect laying down, try to get the state involved and the Sheriff may wish he had done something!
