    There once was a sheriff named Obie,
    Rob Weber was known as his toby,
    they fired the girl,
    and then in a whirl.
    lost both of their jobs to a “probie” !

    Get it ? got it…GOOD !

      Karma is what happened. I am positive it isn’t done calling either.

    I am hopeful that Sheriff Braun and Undersheriff Moriarty (has a great ring to it!) will take a long hard look at this department from the top down! It is needed desperately! This would help this community heal from the prior administrations and maybe restore some faith from the community and show them what a professional Sheriff’s Department should be like.

        HaHaHa, good one, but I thought Sean Penn got to pick Bridgeport’s Luxury Bed and Breakfast jail for something he did else where?

          Trouble, I think you are right. It was just the first thing that popped into my head 🙂

    Glad to see this new administration coming together! The new Elected Sheriff Braun now has an undersheriff with experience and an impressive resume! At least we know this undersheriff won’t pull a stress claim! Unlike the last one!

  8. Wonderful News January 28, 2015 at 2:15 pm #

    This is wonderful news. I have read his resume and it is very impressive! Just what Mono County needs. Ingrid made a great choice.

    The first two cancers have been cleared from the department and now we have someone that has the know how to clear out the rest. He sure has his work cut out for him though. I am hopeful that between Moriarty and Ingrid they can restore some dignity and lawfulness to this department. It is shameful how it has been run in the past. Hopefully Mono County can soon be proud of their Sheriff’s Department.
