Thank you for editing the article headline. Very cool of Sheridan Media.

very sad

my condolences to the families.. for a small town sheridan sure seems to have alot of DUI incidents. I wonder how it compares to the rest of wyoming per capita??

Thrown from Jeep? I think

Thrown from Jeep? I think thats a bit much to put in such a sensitive article. This family could use a bit more respect from the media at a time like this.

My heart goes out to this man's family and his beautiful new wife.
