It was NOT James Shanks in the forklift accident. It was JAY SHANKS. Get it right for God's sake. this is a total mess and then to name Ben Affleck and this Garner girl or whoever the heck she is. Who cares that they live where the accident happened. You are truly idiots

I looked this article up to read it, and it has been removed, as have the previous comments that have been posted regarding this tragic story. I believe that an apology to the family of Jay Shanks is in order. You simply cannot erase these painful words, hoping that it does not come across as a total disregard to the hurt feelings of all involved. It is what it is, but if this newspaper does not take the proper actions to rectify this in the eyes of Jay's obviously loving family and friends,(and believe me, you are vastly outnumbered!) that would be the biggest crime of all

Once again, poor report by people who can't do their jobs. I hope ths news outlet will have an offical apology to the Shanks family.

This will be my second comment to this pathetic attempt at reporting. Jay Shanks did not fall from 35 feet as you continue to report. I know for a fact that the height was 12-15 feet. Since you have continually misreported the incident, it is really having a negative effect on the entire Shanks family. Better hire some new fact checkers and get your crap straight! I agree entirely with Frank and Kendra, that you owe a HUGE apology to the Shanks family, and you should start a fund to help them out during this terrible ordeal!

Did you ever apologize to the Shanks family? I certainly so. Your reporting leaves a lot to be desired!
