You make Houck sound a lot like Buchanan. I hope that's not the case......for everyone's sake.

Ever seen the original Joe Don Baker movie "Walking Tall"? Law enforcement officials are supposed to have character and pride and walk a certain line. Deputies/Policeman/Highway Patrol all have a certain standard! Why should our Detention/Jailers be any different? Some Ashe Jailers are pathetic, why do you ask? Look at the Head Jailer/Captain WAFJ....

Sheriff Howell will only have success in his office if he surrounds himself with officers who walk tall. His chief deputy Houck knows all about that being a military man, hope he personally gives high and tight cuts, clean shaved instructions first thing. And for goodness sakes get some dental insurance for the county employees.

I'M Starting To Get MAD Again!

I agree NoMore-MadMax, first thing he needs to do when he steps in his role is remove the toothless one. Her and the others pictured have tarnished the jail and the department.

When the Colorado state legislature banned 30rd ammunition magazines in that state, who stood up and refused to enforce that unconstitutional law? A few sheriffs. ALL of the sheriff’s who refused were Republican sheriff’s. None were Democrats.

This made gun owners in one county have to drive several counties away to a jurisdiction with a Republican Sheriff just to go to the shooting range with their previously-legal guns.

Ask those gun owners if the party of their Sheriff mattered.

Same thing has happened in Mass and NY

I voted for Howell. The guy owns a federal firearms license. I know where he stands.

Sure Bucky likes his guns. But he doesn’t think the public should have them


Posted 3:30 pm, 11/06/2018

Bluebird stop trying to make something up that’s not true at all. Bucky likes his guns and is an avid outdoorsman like most in the county. You’re obviously out of touch and don’t know him at all. My vote went to Bucky, trusted experience and he deserves the position.

Let's not forget what the Ashe County Jail looks like under a Bucky administration. Just remember, those pictures have been out for a while and to this day, Bucky refuses to address or deal with ANY of the issues. If he is elected, undoubtedly he will be in for a rough ride and Ashe voters will undoubtedly pay the price dealing with another Buchanan scenario. Let's get off to a fresh start and vote for someone that will end the misconduct of the past & take us into a fresh new future! Go Howell!

I do want to remind the candidates, thst whoever wins, we will be watching. We will hold the winner accountable once in office. Don’t expect to be able to sit on your *** and get by.

Voters have a moral responsibility to vote for change in how things operate within our Department's. If you don't support Jailers and inmates breaking laws, today is the day to vote for change!



Posted 10:44 am, 11/06/2018

5 or 6 years ago, Voters paid over $11,500,000.00 for a nice, brand new, state of art jail and today it's laughed at and joked about across the State of NC. Today, it is left up to voter's to decide if they want their jail to be ran by Inmates or by 'real' law enforcement.

And remember, if you haven’t voted yet, make sure to vote for Howell. That is the topic that you’ve worked so hard to distract from.
