As I see it: Dever's death leaves a void in all law-abiding hearts
I want to thank you for the years of allowing those of us who call Cochise County home to have your husband, Larry, as our sheriff.
I first got to know Larry when I came to this newspaper in 1984, a couple of years after the Miracle Valley Shootout, the only title we in the media could come up with. I know he took a lot of heat, which was mostly generated by outsiders who flew in, made accusations, and then flew away.
I left in 1987 for a five year period to work at another Wick paper in North Carolina, but when I returned in 1992, again I made contact with Larry and it seemed as if I had gone on a short vacation, with our relationship continuing.
