MORRIS - In the two months since Sheriff Randy Willis announced he would be resigning at the end of 2012, he has gotten many phone calls and e-mails from residents saying thanks for the little things - opening a car door or quieting a neighbor's dog.


In his 12 years as sheriff, Willis has overseen some big office changes and high-profile cases, but still appreciates the ability to take care of the small problems for the citizens of Stevens County.
