Roberts County Sheriff-Elect Korey Ware faces assault charges in Brown County

Although facing no opposition in the General Election, Roberts County Sheriff-Elect Korey Ware finds himself caught up in controversy of a non-political nature. News broke last week regarding assault charges filed in Brown County against Ware, a former Sisseton Police officer.
The charges arise from an alleged incident that occurred on Saturday, Oct. 6, in Aberdeen. Ware, 28, is charged in Brown County with one count of aggravated assault, or in the alternative, two counts of simple assault. He was arrested on Thursday, Oct. 25 in Britton, but is free on bond under conditions imposed by the court.
It is alleged that an altercation between Ware and an unnamed 30-year-old man resulted in serious injury to the other man. Ware is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
Ware won the Republican primary last June, defeating rival Tim Farmen, and because he faces no opposition in the General Election, is already the Sheriff-Elect of Roberts County.
Should Ware be convicted of a felony, it may affect his ability to serve in the position to which he has been elected. In the meantime, he is presumed innocent and remains Sheriff-Elect. He is set to take over as Roberts County Sheriff on Jan. 1.

World War II -The Greatest Generation highlighted

by Katy Heinecke
Courier Staff Writer

With Veterans Day upon us, it is a time to pay tribute and respect to all of our military personnel who have fought, along with those that continue to fight for our freedoms. The willingness of American Veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the use of nuclear weapons. World War II lasted six years and one day -- beginning September 1, 1939 and ending September 2, 1945.For more on this story please purchase a copy of this weeks Sisseton Courier on news stands now.
