After six consecutive terms with the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office, Sheriff Keith Cain will not run for re-election in 2022.

Sheriff Cain has served continuously in the Daviess County Sheriff’s Office since 1974.

He has held various roles and won several different awards throughout his years of service in Owensboro.

Sheriff Cain says his retirement was not an easy decision, but he is confident that it is the right one.

Sheriff Cain says, "I found nothing more satisfying nor more worthwhile than to give back to the people who have given so very much to me and my family. Over these past 24 years, we've been able to build on the achievements of some great men who came before me. And we've had some significant successes of our own that future leaders, I hope, will be able to build on also."

Along with the announcement of his retirement, Sheriff Cain announced he is endorsing Chief Deputy Sheriff Barry Smith in the upcoming election.

Sheriff Cain says he believes nobody is more prepared to take on the role.

As of Wednesday, Chief Deputy Smith has officially announced his candidacy for the 2022 election.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
