You deserve to have all the news

-A A +A
By Lou Elliott Jones, Editor

Let's see, it was late July and I was still new on the job.

I asked a Sheriff's Office spokesperson about air conditioner burglaries in the county and I also noted my street alone had an AC stolen that was almost turned into a home burglary. And the same road also had a home invasion that resulted in the suspect's death and an armed robbery.

Like a mantra he said crime was down and pointed to 2007 figures showing crime went down in Levy County.

With all due respect the guy who had bugged me asking why I didn't write about all this crime on our street didn't much care about 2007. What he, and I was sure Levy County citizens cared about, was the crime happening this year-today.

Crime is down. The sheriff is doing a good job, he said.

The night Sheriff Johnny Smith won his come from behind, at the last minute, from the last ballot box to tally its votes victory he also mentioned crime was down in the county - in 2007.

And he said he had some ideas for streamlining the job his office did and changes he would make.

There was a reason the sheriff was parsing his mantra about the crime in Levy County.

That was Aug. 26.
