Cantrell writes letter of apology to others

I lied and I am sorry.
In a radio interview a few months ago, I was asked how long I have lived in Vincent.
I lied. I said I have lived here for 20 years.
The truth is that I have lived here for only 5 years.
I have never lied in all my 67 years, but I lied then.
I wish I had never said it and I wish I could take it back, but I can’t.
I have embarrassed my family, my friends, my neighbors, and my associates, and I am truly sorry.
I can think of a dozen reasons for my actions, but none of them will justify my lie.
I have also accused Gerald and Robbie Green of being “Shelbycitizen,” one of the posters on the Shelby County Reporter comments section. I was wrong.
To all whom I have hurt, please accept my deepest and most sincere apology.
I am very, very sorry.
