Onslow County Sheriff Ed Brown told his department he'll be in and out of the office starting Wednesday all the way through February 3rd. He tells WITN he's using stored up vacation time to visit family and he has confidence in his good staff to be able to get away for about a month.

Chief Deputy Colonel David West will be in charge of the department while Sheriff Brown is gone.

    I would rather trust this man with my life than any I have see around vying for his job. You will never see him chase skirts, he will listen as long as it takes, and uses his time wisely. If all the griping is about his written words, maybe some advice can be used from them. As for moral turpitude, I agree with the sheriff, get rid of immoral workers. Professional only need apply. Enjoy your vacation Sheriff Brown!!

      You will never see him chasing skirts. However, the one he left in charge...really scary! I wouldn't trust David West with my pet turtle, if I had one!

    maybe he is using the vacation time that he tells the County not to pay to his employees when they leave his department.

    Maybe he's taking a voluntary paid suspension for his religious political ads.

    Sure hope someone else in the department knows how to use a divining rod to find bodies. Bet your Sheriff doesn't know how to do it.

    May as well use up those vacation days. He'll loose them at some point otherwise. He needs to rest up in order to deal with the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

    Notice the words in the "news" story...stored up vacation time. That means he hasn't taken vacation days allotted to him. I'd say he can take them any time he pleases. It is smart to take them in the "slower" winter months rather than Onslow's busy summer ones. Enjoy Sheriff Brown!!

    The reason this is news is because the liberal hack media is out to get this man.
