Quote of the Day “The wages of sin are death, but by the time taxes are taken out, it’s just sort of a tired feeling.”

— Paula Poundstone, comedian


I see by the multi-media……..
Cassidy Belus, Sheridan High School graduate and rising junior at the U. of Montana, is featured in a film. This is part of her studies, reports a proud father.

She’s the daughter of Tom and Holly Belus of Sheridan. Cassidy was the youth reporter for The Sheridan Press for one year, before leaving for Missoula. She’s listed as the locations manager for the movie-making.

The film, “Subterranea,” is about a progressive rock band’s concept album. You can find a clip via Facebook, Twitter and all that other social media.


The local Shriners (Kalif Shrine Center) are selling Vidalia onions, its annual sale of such. Of course, the Notebook’s a big fan and ordered a 10 pound ($10) bag. Susan has a great recipe for Vidalia Onion pie.

Vidalia onions are large, pale yellow onions with a sweet juicy white flesh, according to Southern Living Cookbook. The Vidalia onion took root in Toombs County, Georgia when a farmer named Mose Coleman discovered in the spring of 1931 that the onions he had planted were not hot, but sweet.

The onions were popular and sold so quickly that by the 1970s, they had become a major crop in the area. Georgia’s state Legislature gave Vidalia onions legal status by limiting their production to 20 counties.


Sheridan golfers have had a fitful start to the 2013 season. The local golf courses (Kendrick, The Powder Horn, Hidden Bridge) are open, but golfers have tested their meteorological mettle what with snow, rain, sleet, gusty winds and once in awhile, warm spring sunshine. So it goes.
