Closing his eyes, the boy would share danger and dusty trails with Jesse James. He could not only walk, but he could ride. The stories were far more than flights of fancy for Ross. They were family history. His grandfather was Jesse Edwards James, son of the notorious outlaw, and the tales were firsthand accounts.

The association, which is seeking a preliminary injunction, alleges that the reductions "are not necessitated by a legitimate financial emergency."
