MOUNT GILEAD — Dixie has turned in her badge and finished her final shift. The Morrow County Sheriff’s Office held a retirement party, including punch and cookies, for the 8-year-old K9 officer on Friday afternoon. “She has been on the road now since the end of 2010, beginning of 2011. She has lived with me and served with me,” said Sgt. Brian Newsome, Dixie’s handler. “We have another canine coming up, so it’s her time to retire.”Newsome bought Dixie from the county for $1.
