A homegrown son fulfilled his life's ambition Monday morning as Cory Aukes was sworn in as Hubbard County Sheriff.

The new sheriff, a Park Rapids native, got a hug from mom Gina Aukes and a "Good job!" salutation. His extended family, in-laws, two kids and wife Molly all stood by with digital cameras flashing.


"He worked very hard and we're so proud of him," said aunt Tish Snelling.
