    How awful. It says he was just remarried in July and leaves 3 children and a stepdaughter. It also says he was a very compassionate sheriff.

    Very sad indeed; BUT I can't help but feel that it was an incredibly STUPID event to start with and am surprised a Sherrif's Department would be participating in such a dangerous event to start with. Aren't they well aware of the dangers of racing?!!! Don't they see enough accidents without setting up events likely to cause more? Shame on the school district as well!

    Sheromom....I thought the exact same thing! It was and IS an incredibly stupid event!!! A reporter got injured in the same event just last year, and they STILL think it's a good idea to put this thing on??? Honestly, for the life of me, I cannot even fathom LE or rescue personnel in my state staging and participating in such a ridiculous production! What were they thinking!!!! STUPID STUPID STUPID!
