Henderson Man Drops Out Of Race For Rusk County Sheriff

He says it was a difficult decision, but Ricky Turner has decided to drop out of the Rusk County Sheriff's race.  The former Henderson police officer was injured and left wheel chair bound in a car crash in August of 2006.  Turner says he wanted to give back to the community that gave him so much after his accident, but his health has changed over the last two months.  Turner has lost mobility in his arm and right hand, and says he's now planning a trip to China for experimental stem cell treatment and therapy.
