Post Haste: A website wants to remind you Pat Kelly's still in prison; Morning Sech's is on the horizon

For details, visit

Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016:

Lest we forget former Athens County Sheriff Pat Kelly is in prison, someone took a few minutes — and a few dollars — to let anyone with access to the Internet confirm this fact themselves.

At about 5 p.m. Sunday, someone registered, which displays a boldfaced word: “YES.” The Post was made aware of the page via the OU College Republicans’ Twitter feed.

The page also features a video of the student section at an OU basketball game engaging in its classic “winning team—losing team” basketball chant.

Kelly was convicted in February 2014 on 18 counts related to corruption.
