CBS 7 was kind enough to do an article on this. Today we say goodbye to a very long time community servant. Growing up in the basin, Sheriff Painter has been Midland County Sheriff for literally as long as I can remember. With him, a large part of this community's history has passed away. If you'd like to say goodbye and watch the service, CBS 7 has included a link so you can stream it live.

Thank you for your service Sheriff Painter. You will be missed.
