Homer appointed Hubbard County Sheriff
Hubbard County commissioners appointed Chief Deputy Frank Homer the new sheriff in town.
Homer will take office upon the "legal departure" of current Sheriff Gary Mills, which is scheduled for April 30.
Homer and Sgt. Cory Aukes made appearances before the board Wednesday afternoon to state their cases for the appointment to fill out the remainder of Mills' term, about 18 months.
Neither man was present when the board voted.
