  1. I would like to get some kind of notice for next year’s. I am doing the KCK citizen this year and just learned about this one through them. My great grandfather was a sheriff in the fifties and I know it’s not the same as when he was one. Clyde Morgan was his name. He worked at the court house and one of the prisons.
