So, I have come to a conclusion. When I am down to my final year of my job and the school year is winding down, there won't be a need for me to wait until Memorial Day weekend to say goodbye. One weekend in March I will just pack up everything, leave a note, and never return. I am sure a sub can fill my place for those three months. I mean, what is the problem? I won't ever be back there again. What are they going to do? Fire me? Sounds like a great plan, right?
Well, that is exactly what Lawrence County Sherrif Ed Weisacosky did this week. Just three months before his term ended as sherrif, he skipped town. He pulled up stakes and moved to Florida. What wonderful character!! This is a man we voted into office? It would be one thing if health issues forced him to resign, but from all media reports I have seen this wasn't the case.
And the best part of all... one of the candidates running to replace him is named the interim sherrif. I would say *cough cough* that is a little bit of an unfair advantage. But, who am I to judge? After all, I won't care who my substitute is (in 28 years) when I leave the schoolhouse doors forever.
