Letter: ‘Progressive citizenry’ is envy of Wyoming

‘Progressive citizenry’  is envy of Wyoming Re: Simpsons, ‘On Golden Pond’ We wish to acknowledge and thank all the citizens who made our return to Sheridan, brief as it was, so rewarding and heartwarming. The production of “On Golden Pond” would not have been possible without the leadership of Rebecca Leibinger, our director, and the… Continue Reading

Democrats ‘banging oatmeal spoons’ regarding Court

Re: Press cartoon, Mar. 15 A cartoon recently published in The Sheridan Press visually presented the Democratic Party talking points by showing President Obama holding up a sign reading “2008 and 2012” and a tag line of his saying that actually the country had voted twice. The implication was that Senate Republicans were thwarting the… Continue Reading

Letter: City friendly towards elderly, dementia

City friendly towards elderly, dementia Re: Albrecht column, Feb. 27, Press I love this town! Specifically, I love that we live in a community that doesn’t give up on the elderly and embraces the idea of creating dementia-friendly communities. I am referencing Amy Albrecht’s article in the Feb. 27 edition of The Sheridan Press and… Continue Reading

Letter: Oil conflicts bedevil U.S.

Oil conflicts bedevil U.S. Re: Republicans, Democrats, Israel, Iraq, Wall Street, Rockefellers, Rothschild, Clinton, Bush, Cheney, Obama, taxpayers. The U.S.’ conflict of interest by both Republicans and Democrats with the banking cartel is revealed in Israel and Iraq. First reported on Feb. 24, 2013, by, Vice President Dick Cheney and Clinton administration cabinet officers… Continue Reading

Cartoon disrespects Scalia legacy

Re: Press opinion page, Feb. 16 The late Justice Antonin Scalia hasn’t even been buried yet, and the left is already impugning his reputation. In addition to being highly disrespectful and inconsiderate of the memory of a well-liked and highly respected Supreme Court justice, the cartoon on The Sheridan Press’ editorial page shows the depths… Continue Reading

Letter: Cheney pandering; ‘pay-at-gate’ Bighorns

Cheney pandering; ‘pay-at-gate’ Bighorns Re: Clabaugh letter, Press, Feb. 11 Patricia Clabaugh’s letter, “Cheney BLM claim wrong,” was spot on. When the notion of Wyoming taking over much of the federal land in the state first popped up and was endorsed by some of our lawmakers, it sounded like a good idea. Then reality set in.… Continue Reading

Letter: ‘Heart’ versus ‘head;’ Legislature muffs it

‘Heart’ versus ‘head;’ Legislature muffs it Re: Medicaid expansion Last year we joined with other concerned Wyoming citizens to encourage the Wyoming Legislature to approve expansion of Medicaid coverage to help meet the health-care needs of approximately 20,000 people in the State of Wyoming. There were plenty of numbers to support a responsible fiscal accounting as… Continue Reading

Cheney BLM claim wrong, fuels hate

Re: Sheridan Press story, Feb. 3 Liz Cheney asserted that the Bureau of Land Management is “devoted” to eliminating all human use on land. The BLM’s mission is: “To sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations.  It administers more public land — over… Continue Reading

Letter: Public lands to suffer with Cheney

Public lands to suffer with Cheney Re: Candidacy, Press, Feb. 3 Liz Cheney announced in the Feb. 3 Sheridan Press her intent to run for Congress representing Wyoming.  One of the first issues she highlighted was that the Bureau of Land Management was supposedly eliminating all human use of public lands in Wyoming and that funding… Continue Reading

Letter: Legislators letting underserved suffer

Legislators letting underserved suffer Re: Medicaid expansion refusal When you eat out at the restaurant, did you know there is a high probability the server does not have health insurance?  The same is true for day care workers, lodging workers, home industry workers and other workers whom you know by name.  Are you aware that approximately… Continue Reading

Veteran urges veterans to vote

Re: Be informed, vigilante When I enlisted in the U.S. Air Force in 1950, I took an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic. When I received that DD214, nothing in that document or any other I have received ever relieved me of that duty. This letter is to remind… Continue Reading

Press protects its ‘master,’ Obama

Re: Liberal media, censorship, Easter Bunny It’s strange. When the liberal media, including The Sheridan Press, publish an editorial, it is unfettered and uncensored. Yet, when we conservatives attempt to publish a letter to the editor, our letter is often butchered, as was my letter of Jan. 22. We are told this is “editing.” Having been… Continue Reading

Divided America; loyalty needed

Re: Both parties at fault Rotten cabbage stinks. I’m an American and darn proud of it. Who started this African America, Irish American, Italian American, Polish American, etc., garbage as a division tactic. It has made huge divisions in our country. United we stand, divided we fall has grown way too faint in our memories.… Continue Reading

Letter: ‘Confident, exceptional’

‘Confident, exceptional’ Re: health care at SMH I have heard folks say Sheridan Memorial Hospital is pretty good. You never really know until you have to stay awhile.  I had that chance last week. I’m pretty healthy, but by the third morning of not feeling well, I got the order to “put on your coat… Continue Reading

Letter: Benghazi film faithful to book

Benghazi film faithful to book Re: “13 hours” Kudos to the Centennial Theatre for booking the movie “13 Hours” which is currently showing. This is a movie every American should watch as it depicts the ordeal the defenders of the American compounds in Benghazi endured during the terrorist attacks there in 2012. While the language… Continue Reading

Letter: Redle’s work is ‘outstanding’

Redle’s work is ‘outstanding’ Re: Charges, Jan. 12, Press Regarding the Matt Redle story, the remaining question is: what did she say? If it is not fit for print, is she liable to council? As for me, I’ve seen only two sides of Matthew Redle: straightforward and hard working. I’m behind his sterling and outstanding… Continue Reading

Letter: City administrative position justified

City administrative position justified Re: Complex job, efficiencies Some of us citizens of the city of Sheridan question the wisdom of some decisions made by our mayor and city council. One of those decisions has been the hiring of a city administrator. Admittedly, I was among those who questioned the need for this position. After watching… Continue Reading

Letter: Legislator peers don’t address accountability

Legislator peers don’t address accountability Re: ‘Tax-and-spend mentality’ I’m concerned about what I see as progressive liberal ideas — more and new taxes — coming to Wyoming. In the 2015 General Session, I saw several attempts at this while on the revenue committee, and most of the time, a majority of us voted those bills down.… Continue Reading

Letter: Hitler ‘would be proud’ of U.S. government

Hitler ‘would be proud’ of U.S. government Re:  El Chapo? It’s Obama’s fault Recently, Fox News showed their viewers the weapons seized from drug lord “El Chapo” following his arrest by Mexican authorities. His weapons stash included Russian-made rocket propelled grenades and a Barrett .50 caliber sniper rifle from President Barack Obama’s “fast and furious” gun… Continue Reading

Letter: Election rejection

Election rejection; 13 signatures Re: City administrator job The county has given me the clerk’s tally of the disqualified signatures on our referendum petition. (To put Sheridan’s city administrator position to a public vote.) The county clerk denied 36 signatures. The clerk rejected 33 signatures because the people were not on the voter rolls. Three people… Continue Reading

Letter: National Mentoring Month celebrated

National Mentoring Month celebrated: Re: One adult, one child January is National Mentoring Month and Jan. 15 was national “Thank Your Mentor” Day.  This month is a great time to reflect back on those that have been mentors in our lives, and essentially helped shaped who we are today.  But now isn’t just the time to… Continue Reading

Trump, Cruz and citizenship

Re: Constitutional requirement Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has raised the issue as to whether one of his rivals, Canadian-born U.S. citizen Sen. Ted Cruz, qualifies for the presidency under the constitutional requirement of being a “natural born” American citizen. Trump has stated that he is relying on the professional legal opinion of Harvard Law… Continue Reading

Letter: Wall Street’s odd behavior

Wall Street’s odd behavior Re: Oil prices, stocks The stock market is irrational. It dropped substantially, leaving a fear of greater decline. Reassuring voices in financial reports agree it was caused by a crude oil price decline. The next day the opinions were verified when stock prices rose along with crude prices. (They were quick… Continue Reading

Letter: Climate change’s cash cow — the NSF

Climate change’s cash cow — the NSF Re: Explosions, solar cycles, sheep camp raid The Spring Creek Raid on a sheep camp near Ten Sleep, Wyoming, by cattlemen the night of April 2, 1909, was probably aided somewhat by the Tunguska Event of June 30, 1908. Unintended consequences? I’ll explain. The latest general consensus about CME’s,… Continue Reading

‘Fuddy Duddys’ rule; ATV recreation limited

Re: Red Grade road, commissioners This is the third winter that I have experienced denied access to the Big Horn Mountains using Red Grade via my ATV.  My anger continues to burn red hot towards the Sheridan County Commissioners for their reckless and irresponsible condemnation of ATV travel up Red Grade based on the complaints of… Continue Reading
