Head out to http://www.countryshowdown.com/app/NewsDisplay.php?id=514. I need the top image to resize with the dimension of the screen. Right now, on a mobile device, while the width works as far as it not bleeding beyond the perimeter of the screen, it looks like what I've got attached.

How can I manipulate the height via css so the "max-width" setting doesn't result in something that's been stretched?

You can set the width and height 100% and set a max width. In this case it would be 600px;

width: 100%;
height: 100%;
max-width: 600px;

Bruce, while acrab's solution does work in that it resizes the image, it may not be readable or degrade as it sizes.  You might consider using media queries https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/Guide/CSS/Media_queries and use different images for different viewports.

@media (max-width: 300px) {
    img.header_image_small{display:inline}
    img.header_image_large {diplay:none}
 }
@media (min-width: 300px) {
    img.header_image_small{display:none}
    img.header_image_large {diplay:inline}
 }
