N&O photographer Travis Long got this shot of Wake County sheriff Donnie Harrison last night, taking aim while testing the Super Sling Shot game as carnival worker Jason Westmoreland helps steady his sling. Harrison says the sheriff's department checks all carnival games to make sure they are fair and winnable. "If someone asks me if you can win this game, I can say yes you can. Because I can win it myself," assured Harrison. "Is it hard to win? Yes."
Harrison managed to knock down a pig-shaped pin after more than a dozen tries.
