Everyone in Knox County who has ever known Sheriff John Pickard has described him as a man of few words, and Tuesday was no exception.

When Sheriff John Pickard heard he was having a ‘surprise’ birthday party at the Forcht Bank in Barbourville, he was counting on a few friends and family members and a potluck lunch. What the sheriff did not expect was to walk into a room full of his own deputies, Barbourville City police officers, detectives, state troopers, city and county officials and several prominent members of the Knox County Community, all waiting to shake his hand.
