Too set in his ways? Strength of his convictions? Close to retirement age anyway? Well, whatever the reason, Sublette County, Wyoming, has lost a sheriff's deputy to retirement because he doesn't like the new uniform requirements. County Sheriff Stephen Haskell has ordered deputies not to wear cowboy hats or boots while on duty. So, Deputy Gene Bryson decided to retire rather than change, saying the new look just isn't for him.

Did the sheriff think cowboy boots and hats looked out of place in Wyoming, or.....?
