Twin Falls County Sheriff Tom Carter made a surprise appearance on Top Story today. He and Captain Tim Miller shared their thoughts on the potential crisis in Oregon where a group of ranchers are occupying some buildings at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge as a demonstration against the jailing of Dwight and Steve Hammond.
