have nose, will hunt

It's not often that you get to know someone before they decide to run for office. When Larry Hunter declared his candidacy for sheriff, I knew immediately that I would vote for him. He's a good guy and I have respect for him. He was challenging his former boss, a popular incumbent. Larry's brother, David, wrote on a blog that has since been deleted (but lives on in Google's cache) that Larry "intended to run a clean campaign, not against Tim Hutchison but for the job of Sheriff of Knox County."

Hunter was a regular caller to the "Ashley & Murphy" morning show and helped us when we needed a radar gun for a radio bit. Yesterday he withdrew from the race due to his wife's health. I'm disappointed that I won't be able to vote for him but I wish Larry and his wife all the best.
