Sheriff Larry Blanton is throwing his hat into the ring again. Balancing a budget and getting a tax rate reduction for the law enforcement tax are just a few of the things Blanton says he's accomplished during his tenure. "I think one of the biggest challenges as Sheriff, upcoming will be the same as any business or any household sitting around the dining room table and that is trying to make it work with what you have and we are very proud to serve the public and you won't us complain. We’ll just to the best with what we have, because that's what people expect of us." Blanton says he has not heard if anyone else is interested in running against him. He was serving as undersheriff in 2007 when then Sheriff Les Stiles retired and the County Commission appointed him to serve out the term. He then ran for Sheriff successfully in 2009, and now hopes to win the publics' support for another term in 2012.
