CHICKASHA — Grady County Sheriff Jim Weir is "a little ticked."

Weir was notified this week that his salary was being cut by about $20,000 a year.

That would be enough to tick off most people, but Weir says that's not what has upset him most.

What has Weir irritated is the damage to his reputation — damage that he says is unfair.

Weir was one of eight Grady County elected officials notified this week that their salaries were being cut from about $80,000 a year to $60,775 a year.
