Article Photos: Oil boom and a kidnapping alter Montana town 2/8

  This Feb. 28, 2012 photo shows Ron Whited looking on, as his wife, Sharon, goes through a basket of condolence cards and notes the couple has received since their daughter Sherry Arnold was kidnapped and apparently murdered, in Sidney, Mont. More than 16 million barrels of crude are now being pumped every month from the massive Bakken oil field beneath eastern Montana. But Sidney's new-found prosperity doesn't dull the sting of the recent kidnapping and apparent murder of local teacher, Arnold, who authorities allege was snatched from a Sidney street. .(AP Photo/Matthew Brown)
