    He may have appologized publicly, but will he harbor ill feelings towards those who have brought this incident to light.

    uhm……..he had no choice but to apologize……..the News printed an article on this debacle – .am waiting for an apology over the fact tht the elderly are experiencing people invading their homes, calling his office, and not receiving a response

    Sheriff Barber is to be complimented for apologizing. A few in government would attempt to cover up the error, say nothing and hope no one else learned of the error.
