  • 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” (#127)

It’s back in the saddle for your Sheriff, after taking some time off last week to relax and visit some family members. The trilogy of the previous sentence should have also contained “fishing our Pulaski County rivers” but Mother Nature diverted my plans with the excessive rains. As you know, the rivers are dangerously high, which means that no one should challenge them, or try to navigate these waterways. Common sense and past experiences prevail with most regarding floods, but there always seems to be those who intentionally try to test the waters.

Point being, just last night (Saturday) two men moved some barricades and attempted to drive across a flooded roadway. The Gasconade River had also washed away the gravel road-bed under the water, so their vehicle immediately sank, leaving the men in a dangerous situation. This resulted in yet another water rescue by local fire departments, where firemen risked their lives to rescue these men from the raging Gasconade. This scenario could have easily resulted in a horrible ending for these men but they were fortunate, thanks to the heroic efforts of our local firemen.

On an exciting note for your Sheriff, this week the local Missouri Sheriff’s Academy will be hosting yet another graduation ceremony at the Parker Fine Arts Center in Waynesville, where dozens of men and women will be graduating. With this comes numerous new deputies to the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department. A female jailer that just completed the academy is being promoted to Road Deputy, and will be undertaking an approximate four month field training program before working solo. Several other graduates will be taking a Reserve Deputy position, with hopes of becoming a full-time deputy in the future. This is a proud moment for these graduates, their families and sponsoring agencies. The graduation is a public event, so I invite anyone who wishes to attend and support these future law enforcement officials.

Fraud, fraud, fraud; we see and hear about it almost constantly. Each week individuals contact the Sheriff’s Department to report some type of fraud in which they were victims. Resulting from an investigation involving local and Federal law enforcement officials, last year three county residents were arrested for partaking in a large-scale telephone and internet fraud scam, where they were stealing thousands of dollars from individuals on a monthly basis. Two weeks ago Federal agents notified the Sheriff’s Department that the last of these three criminals pled guilty to fraud charges in Federal Court, and will be spending some time in prison. The bleak side of this story is that there are many other fraudsters to take their place, so please wisely protect your assets!

I won’t go into a lot of detail since we have covered this topic on many past occasions, but once again I need to ask all dog owners to be responsible for their canines. Recently, there has been a large increase in the number of dog complaints and attacks; many that could have been easily prevented. With these attacks numerous individuals and pets have been injured, which includes deadly force having to be applied to the aggressive animals. In summary, if you own a vicious dog, be responsible and keep the animal properly contained. Remember, if your dog does attack another person or animal, by Missouri State Statute you may be criminally and/or civilly responsible!

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
