    Election letter: Lathim for sheriff

    As election day nears, it seems to me that some vital information is missing for the position of sheriff of Franklin County. The sheriff's position requires a person with administrative abilities. Richard Lathim is that person. He has served successfully for more than two decades in the rural farming...
