Salute To Sheriff Parsons

(01/10/2005)

Dear Editor,

I would like to extend to my cousin, now retired Sheriff Allen Parsons, a hearty congratulations.

He has been excellent for Calhoun County as a whole. I remember him working at Stump's Funeral Home and attempting to stop a run away AMC Gremlin that went into a flower shop window. The drivers door was locked. That car belonged to me.

I also remember his father Paul Parsons being Sheriff after Park Richards was so brutally murdered near Grantsville.

I think he has been a great asset to Calhoun County. The new Sheriff has big shoes to fill, but I also know him well and he will do just fine.

Sincerely
Jim McCracken
