  • Valor7: What I tried to say is that the actual money would not be there that quick. But a loan against that would work if they are willing to do that.

  • Lepard LLC: Why so long before it comes online? 911 took out a loan or bond with the known guarantee payment and began building..

  • Valor7: Actually no it is not, a dependable Revenue stream will not come on line until the 4th quarter of 2017 so 2018 budget will be up in the air, not quite sure what they will have. By 2019 budget all will be well.

  • Valor7: You mean that tax that the Commissioners would not put on the ballot for so many years? Strange things happened when the citizens got a chance to vote on that issue.

  • Valor7: I could have worded that better, we talked details, options, the pros and cons of each, in  order to arrive at the best ballot language to present to the voters. Hope that makes this clearer.

  • Valor7: sorry about the typos still working with just one arm in action
    April 13, 2016, 01:10:42 PM
  • Valor7: Yes and no. We talked details and options until we were blue in the face but I never heardbring it over, it was always the time was not right for the issue to pass. Glad to see the time in now right and I for one shall vote yes on the ballot. I would urge all others to do the sameour county is busting at the seams crimewise and no matter how many bad guys we send off there always seems to someone to replace them. The Sheriff's Office needs the help.

  • Lepard LLC: Gene Newkirk Rick I have waited for a Sheriff to bring it to me on what he wanted. I have pushed Mr long for a while to get it to me. He told me he was close to having or done. Now hopefully the people will get to decide on it. I spoke with Steve about this a few times.

“The Sheriff’s View” (#120)


 Last Monday marked yet another step in Pulaski County’s anti-drug campaign. On Tuesday, two individuals that had been participating in Drug Court graduated from the program. Both individuals had participated in this complex program for approximately two years and successfully completed it last week. One thing that I repeatedly hear during these graduation ceremonies from the participants is about how much individual fortitude and work it took each of them to reach this milestone.

The Pulaski County Drug Court is directed by Judge Colin Long, who has an array of professionals that assist him with the participants. They have a rigid multi-step program structured for these individuals who have appeared before Judge Long on criminal cases that were in some way associated with drug addiction. Not all who enter this program successfully graduate, but dozens of lives have been saved who were able to complete Drug Court. So, congratulations to these new graduates and to Judge Long for another successful chapter of Drug Court!

While on the topic of graduations, this week there are numerous schools in Pulaski County that will be celebrating the graduation of their senior classes. I want to stress to these students and the parents the “safety” issues that are at stake during this time. These graduates will be celebrating their accomplishment in many ways, but unfortunately some will make wrong decisions. Parents, please stress to your graduates about the topic of alcohol and drug usage again this week. Wrong decisions made during this time can result in injuries, accidents or criminal arrests, or possibly even something more devastating. Make sure these graduates enter their next step into a positive future by making the correct choices this weekend.

A sight to see is coming to the St.Robert-Ft.Wood area this Thursday. The annual Special Olympics Torch Run begins in the St. James area and will conclude in Pulaski County. The Torch Run participants are law enforcement officers, compiled of City and County officers, State Troopers, Game Wardens and Military Police Officers. There will be over 1000 officers that will be running, with the largest component being MP’s. This is another fund raising endeavor for your law enforcement community to help these Special Olympic athletes. If you wish to view the final leg of this run, the participants leave the St. Robert Community Center at 10:30 AM on Thursday morning. Helping escort the runners will be the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s Motorcycle Unit, along with an anticipated fly-in via helicopter by the Highway Patrol’s new Superintendent.

As mentioned several weeks ago, we now have a date set for the exhuming of Jane Doe’s grave, which will be on the morning of Wednesday, May 27th. We are hoping this initiative will give us additional evidence needed to help identify Jane Doe and resolve her murder case.

I also want to thank the Maranatha Baptist Church for sponsoring the first Pulaski County Blue and White celebration, which was a special event to recognize law enforcement officials in Pulaski County. As some of you may know, last week was National Police Week so my words of appreciation go out to Maranatha for recognizing the officers that protect this community on a daily basis.

Our next Town Hall meeting will be in Laquey on Tuesday, May the 26th, at 6:30 PM. This meeting will be held in the gymnasium of the Laquey High School. The meeting is open to the public, so feel free to come out and visit with your Sheriff and other representatives of the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department.

This concludes another week’s summary as your Pulaski County sheriff, and I hope to see you here again next week. For more information about the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department and other related items of interest, please visit our website (www.pcsheriff2.com), or on Facebook.

As always, stay safe and do something positive for your community.

 Sheriff Ronald Long
