Taking the oath of office

Warren County Coroner John Thomason, right, and deputy coroner Larry A. Chisley are sworn in by Chancery Clerk Dot McGee Friday morning in the Warren County Courthouse. Thomason was elected Nov. 21 in a runoff against former deputy coroner Ronald C. Regan. He replaces longtime county coroner L.W. “Bump” Callaway III, who was appointed in August as director of the county’s emergency management agency. (The Vicksburg Post/MELANIE DUNCAN)
