BRUNSWICK COUNTY -- One day after Brunswick County sheriff Ron Hewett resigned about 18 people have expressed interest in his old job. Brunswick County Democratic Party spokesman Robert Epstein told us an executive committee will hear from each interested candidate at 10:00 a.m. on May 10. It's still unclear who will be on that committee but Epstein says the party is committed to having an open process, and plans on taking its time to make sure the process is done correctly.

Sheriff

I think it would be in the best interest of the county and everyone involved if someone from the outside is elected the new Sheriff. The county does not need a new Sheriff that comes with a lot of baggage. The county does not need to hire someone that was involved in any way to this case. Also, relatives of a Sheriff and relatives of employees of the Sheriff's office should not be hired. That only causes more problems. TL Ocean Isle Beach

sheriff

well i know alot of people that use to work for sheriff's office and some that still does...telling you people right now better open your eyes and bring someone in there from outside noway from inside

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly AND I'm a Citizen Doing My Job

There a number of fine young officers at the BCSD doing their job. They were not part of the rotten apple surrounding Sheriff Hewett. They take their jobs and families very serious. There names have not shown up in any of these reports because they were the ones out serving and protecting the public. You just keep a low profile and do your job and avoid the best you can the rotten CLICK.....God bless these young men and women and now they will get a chance to do a even better job.

Hewett and Complex Corruption

I sure hope the 18 candidates aren't from the BCSD. As for social services, someone needs to check on corruption in that department. How many fathers are made to pay child support for their children and can't get social services to put their name on the birth certificates of the minor children. They have all the proof they need to send the information to the register of deeds, but aren't following guidelines. As for the social services department, it needs to be investigated for the family members that get all the help and elderly families are having to do with out. How can a department continue to give benefits to a so called mother that abandoned not one but two children. Just because the second father is afraid, she will take the child away because his name isn't on the birth certificate. Justice is for the corrupt and not the honest citizens. Who goes to jail for not paying child support, definitely not the man that they won't take his name off the birth certificate. It is the father that paternity has been proven. So get a life.

He Can't Do That!

He can't do that Thunder; he has too many duties around the house to do yardwork and all now that he has lost his free clean up crew! I am sure he has a VERY long honey do list now! He better enjoy his freedom at his gateway village soon he will be behind his own set of bars!

So long Ron. We will miss

So long Ron. We will miss your ugly mug on the tv and Beacon. By the way, why don't you apply at the Beacon for a job until you are put away for a while?

You got it!

And take that fella whose letter appeared in the Beacon who kept hollering "I want my sheriff back!" with him.

Heck Yeah!

Heck Yeah; who wouldn't be interested in a $108K a year job here in Brunswick County????? That's more than a 2 person family a year! All the benefits he had too along with a Wal-Mart Credit Card and BB&T Credit Card along with the list of items that were turned in....WOW what did he EVER pay for; his mortgage or did us citizens pay that also on his BB&T card????? Our Good Ole' tax dollars paid for him and his family to live it up on the hog! I guess that carpet has been snatched out from under them.....What the life he had and HE screwed it up himself he has nobody to Thank but himself; I don't feel a damn bit sorry for him at all! His wife and kids yeah maybe a bit because of all the hell he put them through but he is a grown adult and knew what he was doing when he wasn't intoxicated!

Isn't that the reason an

Isn't that the reason an investigation began in the first place? Let's be real. LOL

Welcome Sheriff Backstabber

OK so let's appoint one of those who turned in their best friend and ally to save their own neck. Ingram, Crocker, Caison, Cummings. Yeah that wouldn't be a mistake. One of them traitors would fit Brunswicked just fine. I say bring in an outsider to run things temporarily and then let the public vote on a new sheriff in November. But this mess of the same old same old getting stuffed in and rewarding the backstabbers aint right.

RE: Welcom Sheriff Backstabber

First, Ingram had little to do with anyone at the sheriff's dept, he provided information that he had. Cummings is gone, but he did the right thing too. Caison and Crocker are still around and they did the right thing as well. It's terrible that you can't accept that people did the right thing. They did nothing wrong but try and help clean up our county's law. Ingram is a fair, stable, knowledgable, and respectable man. He is also a great LEADER. If you are going to call someone names or sling mud to those who are in the picture now - look at Smith - he is the one you don't want from the inside. He is no different than Ronald. A wolf in sheeps clothing.

Sure they did the right

Sure they did the right thing...I find if odd that these taped conversations only came after the Feds started their investigation. Why didn't Caison record conversations before the Feds arrived? Maybe he is trying to save his own butt. I really hope Hewett throws everyone under the rug

He should

Hewett is not the only dirty one. No one should be stupid enough to believe that. And they're not just in his department, either. I hope he does some healthy singing.

Turning On Each Other

Come On Gene Allen I thought you and Keith were buddies

BUDDIES ???

CAISON,HOLDEN,SMITH. YOU KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE DONE. YOU MUST HAVE FORGOTTEN ALL ABOUT SHALLOTTE 727.

I figured it out myself

You have a lot of nerve talking about how Masons are supposed to treat each other when you have a Mason behaving like Hewett has, Mr. Brunswick County Master Mason from Shallotte Chapter 727. Just shows you once again how far Hewett has fallen from what he was supposed to be - if he ever was. Masons don't cover up messes like this -if they're truly living up to their vows.

COVER UP????

WELL ARE YOU COVERING UP SOMETHING? SOUND'S LIKE TO ME THAT YOU BELONG TO SHALLOTTE 727 AND THAT MAYBE YOU TURNED ON RONALD.

Cover Up???

Not hardly, since I'm a female. What has that got to do with what I said. If you were anything, you would have explained it yourself but I figured it out. Sounds like a threat to someone to me.

I'll bite

Ok, I'll bite. To what are you referring?

Backstabbers?

Yeah backstabbers... that's what you should call the people who actually did some good and ended the corruption.

Backstabber

What do you call someone who breaks the law for 4 years and then turns on the person that gave them a job ?... the best job they ever had. wow they impress the h@@@ out of me... when are you people going to realise. when hitler was brought down did we let the generals go, when enron fell did we go after just the CEOs no, So why should we not prosecute these deputies who broke the law and spent tax payers dollars.....why didnt they just quite, Oh thats right they were to scared to do what they have done now, how is they all of a sudden found a pair,,,,

THE LAW

I AM A FORMER LEO AND WITH THAT BEING SAID I SAY THIS. IT IS OUR JOB TO UP HOLD THE LAW AND THAT INCULDES ORDERS FROM OUR SUPERVISORS. IF THEY ORDER A BAD ORDER THAT IS AGAINST THE LAW IT IS OUR JOB TO REPORT OR ARREST THE OFFICER. NOW WITH THAT BEINE SAID IN THE CASE THAT WE DO NOT REPORT IT OR TAKE ACTION AGAINST THE ORDER IT IS US WHO IS HELD RESPONSIBLE ASWELL AS THE ORDERING OFFICER. MY VIEW IS THAT MANY DEPUTIES BROKE THE LAW AND THE CREED OF JUSTICE. FOR THE DEPUTIES THAT BROKE THE LAW ALONG WITH HEWETT I WOULD LIKE NO MORE THAN JUSTICE TO BE SERVED ON ALL.

I'm with you

That's what my family and I are waiting for.
