Letter to the Editor

Thanks for the memories

Thursday, May 12, 2016

To the Editor:

I was reading in the May 2 Banner Graphic (in a Putnam County Museum item) that 50 years ago Paul Mason was campaigning for sheriff as a Democrat.

He was my husband, Sheriff Kenneth J. Knauer's first deputy for eight years.

We lived in the old jail on West Washington Street. I was the matron.

The first four years, Kenneth had one deputy, and the last four years he had two. The other one was Percy Rice.

Both were very fine gentlemen.

Thankful for the memories.

Helen Knauer
