Phoenix New Times:  “There was a chill, and dare I say it, a thrill in the air for some, on this winter Wednesday morning, the first day of a federal grand jury looking into criminal abuses of power by Sheriff Joe Arpaio.   The grand jury spent almost all day questioning three witnesses at the Sandra Day O’Connor Federal Courthouse: Maricopa County Manager David Smith, County Financial Manager Sandi Wilson, and Sheriff Joe’s chief financial officer Loretta Barkell.”
