COUNTY SHERIFF AWOL; CHALLENGER WINS POST
NEWSPAPER OF THE FICTIONAL TOWN OF HALO, OREGON
After attacks on two local women, county sheriff Reid Weston has disappeared. With crime exploding in the small town of Halo, in addition to normal law enforcement responsibilities in the rest of the county, the lack of leadership left deputies struggling to perform their duties.
Voters obviously recognized the need for strong leadership, and overwhelmingly elected challenger Collin O'Shea as sheriff. O'Shea has been with the Oregon State Police for almost twenty years, his latest assignment as a senior trooper on the SWAT team.
In other news, Marly O'Shea and Deputy Dawson Browning were married in a quiet ceremony with family present. Her parents: Tallie O'Shea, Ruby Solomon, and Pierce Stratford were present, as were her seven brothers, one sister-in-law, and close friends.
