He Should Have Changed His Name to Dan Rhodes

St. Paul Pioneer Press | 10/18/2006 | Mayberry, not Dodge City, inspires Wisconsin sheriff candidate: "PLATTEVILLE, Wis. (AP) — A local music store co-owner is putting a touch of Mayberry in the race for sheriff in western Wisconsin's Grant County.

The former William Fenrick changed his name earlier this year to Andy Griffith — the name of the actor who portrayed the fictional Sheriff Andy Taylor of Mayberry on TV's 'The Andy Griffith Show' in the 1960s.

He said his goal was to focus attention on a sheriff's race that otherwise gets little.

'Nobody knows who's running or what the issues are, if there are any issues, or how the people differ,' Griffith said."

Platteville -- that's where my Mom, may she rest in peace, was born and raised. A great little college town.

If not Rhodes, Boss Napier would work.
