Wow, Waldo. What a distinguished career you had. Prayers for the family you
left behind. It was good knowing you and I so enjoyed your writings on the Elk County Forum.

Whomever called Wilma about these dishes, they have not been sold. If you are still interested, please call 620-515-4716 and talk to Janet. Mother got the set of dishes mixed up about what was sold. Thanks.

I noticed that, too. No idea and no idea who is in charge of that grave.

Ross, Sheriff elections happen every four years just like the Presidential elections. Elk County has had many, many Sheriffs. I held that office for 17 years.  I would love to tell you exactly how many have held that office in Elk County, but that would require me to dig around in file boxes I have put away. You could step into the entryway at the sheriff's office and there should be pictures of person who has held the office of Elk County Sheriff.

Most of the posts have been great. I have enjoyed reading them. The posts have also made me glad I am no longer in public office. There is just no winning with a few of you. All I can say is this, make sure you get out and vote in November.

The rumor of a Chinese restaurant coming to Howard was just that, a rumor.

KLETC is established by legislation and owned by the State of Kansas. The education part is governed by KU. That is the short answer without going into statutes.  Part of the fine money that is paid from traffic tickets supports KLETC, I believe.

Here is the Kansas State Statute for qualifications for office of sheriffsheriff

19-801b. Qualifications for office; attendance at law enforcement center required; exception; status and salary while in attendance. (a) No person shall be eligible for nomination, election or appointment to the office of sheriff unless such person:

(1) Is a citizen of the United States and a qualified elector of the county;

(2) possesses a high-school education or its recognized equivalent; and

(3) has never been convicted of or pleaded guilty or entered a plea of nolo contendere to any felony charge, a misdemeanor crime of domestic violence as defined in K.S.A. 74-5602, and amendments thereto, or to any violation of any federal or state laws or city ordinances relating to gambling, liquor or narcotics.

(b) Every person elected to the office of sheriff for the first time, or anyone reelected or appointed to the office after having been out of the office for five years or more shall be required to attend the law enforcement training center as established by K.S.A. 74-5601 et seq., and amendments thereto, and satisfactorily complete the required training course of not less than 320 hours, unless such person has satisfactorily completed such training course within the five years prior to election or appointment, passes a written competency test and firearms proficiency qualification course developed and administered by the Kansas law enforcement training center or unless the commission, as defined in subsection (b) of K.S.A. 74-5602, and amendments thereto, waives the requirements of this subsection as provided in K.S.A. 74-5608a, and amendments thereto. Unless the requirements are waived, any person elected or appointed to the office of sheriff who has not attended the law enforcement training center shall hold office on a provisional basis, and such person shall attend the next scheduled training program at the law enforcement training center and satisfactorily complete such training program or the one subsequent to it, or shall forfeit such office.

(c) Each newly elected sheriff of each county who is required to attend the law enforcement training center shall be hired as a deputy sheriff and shall be paid a salary as deputy sheriff while attending the law enforcement training center. The tuition, board, room and travel expense for the sheriff-elect at the law enforcement training center shall be paid by the county.

History: L. 1972, ch. 75, § 2; L. 1974, ch. 114, § 1; L. 1975, ch. 157, § 1; L. 1977, ch. 89, § 1; L. 1982, ch. 322, § 1; L. 1983, ch. 93, § 1; L. 1995, ch. 180, § 5; L. 1997, ch. 168, § 1; L. 2012, ch. 89, § 11; July 1.

I am pretty sure this will answer your question. I'm not sure what you are meaning by "government approved", but as long as you have the above qualifications, you can run for the office of Sheriff.  Mike Cordell has all the requirements.

All newly elected sheriffs in Kansas are required to attend a Sheriff's training that is held at the Kansas Law Enforcement Training Center usually the last part of November or the first part of December after the general election. Hanks was required to go to this after he won the election against me in 2004.  I was required to attend this when I won my first election in 1989.  In the later elections that I ran in and won, the state statute did not require me to attend sheriff's training again.

Does that explain what you were asking?

Happy Birthday my mother.
