Steve Gladney, Sheriff of Oktibbeha County 

 

"I'm thankful for a lot of things. I'm thankful for these hardworking deputies that we've got that are willing to sacrifice and work holidays and keep the public safe. I'm thankful that 2013 has been a safe year for the sheriff's department and we haven't' had any deputies injured. And I've got a brand new grandson and two little granddaughters. I'm certainly thankful for them and their health. That's been a blessing this year.
