Letter: Not the Democrats’ first anti-CIA rodeo

December 16, 2014

Not the Democrats’ first anti-CIA rodeo Re: Senate CIA report Kudos to Charles Krauthammer whose column in Friday’s Sheridan Press correctly excoriated the report of the Senate Special Committee on Intelligence panning the so-called “torture” administered by CIA personnel after the 9/11 attack. As Krauthammer correctly notes, the chair of the SCCI, Dianne Feinstein, D-California, Read More

Changes in Sheridan College placement structure pays off

December 13, 2014

SHERIDAN — Sheridan College’s efforts to get their students in college-level English and math courses faster seems to be paying off.

Column: The joy of Christmas cards

One of my favorite times of year is right now. It isn’t the lights, the cheer or the overall feeling of fellowship — though I enjoy those too — that gets me going, though. I’ve said before how much I enjoy a good hand-written note, and this time of year gives me the opportunity to Read More

Column: How looking back allows you to move forward

December 5, 2014

There is something about this time of year that makes me look back. Maybe it’s the early darkness that falls each evening and keeps me indoors poring over good books and journaling. Maybe it’s the copious amounts of food that lull me into a sleepy satisfaction. Better yet, it could be all of the holiday Read More

Column: A family history

November 22, 2014

When I was younger, a couple of my family members dabbled in genealogy. We didn’t find a whole lot, but we found a little bit of information on our ancestors. I always found the hobby fascinating.

Sheridan couple discusses making marriage official

October 24, 2014

SHERIDAN — Two years ago, it would have been hard for Marcus Jackson and Jason Brown to imagine Wyoming joining the ranks of states to legalize same-sex marriage.
