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?

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!
