Letters to the Editor

Letter: Commander in chief totally out of line

March 26, 2015

Re: Senators disrespect commander in chief, Donna Robbins letter “It is both disappointing and shocking that a former constitutional law professor (President Obama) thinks he can avoid the constitutional checks and balances on the branches of government on a technicality, especially when it involves one of the most significant foreign policy issues of our time.” Read More

Letter: Heed the lessons of the past

March 24, 2015

Heed the lessons of the past Re: Sowell column, March 23 I sincerely hope that my fellow Sheridan Press readers read Thomas Sowell’s column in Saturday’s edition. He made an excellent case for heeding the lessons of the past in approaching today’s dangers. Citing Winston Churchill’s famous warnings about the existential threat Adolf Hitler posed Read More

Unexpected mentors

March 20, 2015

I’ve been to a lot of conferences. Wyoming Press Association, Inland Press Association, women’s conferences, sports conferences — a lot of things are different about each event, but one things is consistent. At each of those conferences, at least one speaker talks about the importance of finding a mentor. Even for the FAB (For. About. Read More

Letter: Secret ballots a disservice to voters

Secret ballots a disservice to voters Re: Council decision on liquor license After sitting through the Sheridan City Council Meeting on March 15, I was so disappointed that the Council made its decision pertaining to the available retail liquor license under a series of secret ballots. In today’s political environment nationwide, I was astounded that our Read More

Letter: White House ‘nincompoops’ keep informed via TV

Thank heavens for television, or the White House would be in the dark about world affairs. Never in this history of the Republic have we had such a motley lot of petty nincompoops steering the ship of state. There are not enough adjectives to describe contempt many have for this administration. With the Rev. Al Read More

Letter: Go Cowboys!, Re: Lack of UW coverage

March 19, 2015

I realize that you have a small space to devote to sports and that local sports take precedence, but Sheridan is a Wyoming town and many of the residents have attended the University of Wyoming or their children have. I find that the Press’ coverage of the University of Wyoming basketball has been spotty at Read More

Letter: Senators disrespect Commander-in-chief, Re: Iran nuclear talks

It is a sad day for our country when 47 U.S. senators, of any political party, believe it shows strength and maturity to go behind any president, duly elected by the people, and threaten another nation in the midst of treaty negotiations. They are wrong! This childish behavior is even more shameful that our Wyoming Read More

Letter: Keep commercial use out of ag land, Re: Kinnison proposal

March 18, 2015

On April 7, the Board of County Commissioners will hear the Kinnison conditional use permit expansion. The Kinnisons currently host an event called “Born in a Barn” on their property, off U.S. Highway 14. The event is limited to four days a year. In 2014, the Kinnisons constructed a 60-by-100 foot barn on this property. Read More

Letter: Obama, Kerry negotiations put world at nuclear risk

March 13, 2015

Obama, Kerry negotiations put world at nuclear risk Re: Milbank column, Press, Mar 12 Dana Milbank writes,  “… 47 Republican senators did their level best to bring us closer to war by writing a letter to Iran’s mullahs.”  He and other leftwing ideologues are irate that these Republican senators dared to intervene in American statecraft Read More

Exit circus elephants; big cats, horses next

March 12, 2015

Re: Ringling Bros., animal rights Ringling Brothers has bowed to animal-rights pressure and announced the end of the participation of elephants in its circus by 2018. Count on the big cats to go next from the center ring, then the horses, finally the atrocity of little dogs walking on hind legs. Rodeo is likely to Read More

Letter: City “cover up” benefits the few

March 11, 2015

Sheridan seems to be in the midst of the “Big Cover-Up,” needing to put a cover on event facilities just to provide a few with the excuse not to get out and enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors? We live in close proximity to over 2 million acres of the Bighorn National Forest but Read More

Letter: One way out: death; ISIS angry with everyone

March 10, 2015

The following is a quote from the Life and Religion of Mohammad, the Prophet of Arabia. Published 1912. Rev. J. L. Menezes, author and religious scholar and historian. “It may be fairly assumed that during his early longings after a more spiritual faith and his searching’s after the knowledge of the one true God were Read More

Letter: Support competitive pool in Sheridan Re: Aquatic center

March 7, 2015

Imagine driving four hours on icy roads, just to swim three races. That’s my reality. Since Wyoming only has two 50-meter pools, my team usually has to go out of state to compete in most of our swim meets. Wouldn’t it be great to have a 50-meter pool in Sheridan? Wouldn’t it be nice to Read More

Letter: End Eaton ‘saga’ in ’15; shoot him, string him up Re: Wyoming’s only death row inmate

End Eaton ‘saga’ in ’15; shoot him, string him up Re: Wyoming’s only death row inmate I am generally against the death penalty, but am making an exception for Wayne Eaton. I am tired of reading about the “Great Saga of Wayne Eaton.” I want to volunteer to take part in ending it. Let’s list Read More

Letter: A new opportunity for Sheridan Re: Support the new aquatic center

A new opportunity for Sheridan Re: Support the new aquatic center A new opportunity has presented itself for the Sheridan community to create a brand new, indoor aquatic center. This new center might include equipment like large slides, a lazy river, a small lap pool for exercising and many other elements that could possibly be Read More

Letter: Need help getting the word out Re: Aquatic center

Need help getting the word out Re: Aquatic center I’m a seventh-grader at Sheridan Junior High School. Many seventh-graders, including myself, are thinking about a new aquatic center in Sheridan and I need your help to get the word out. The aquatic center should be built in Sheridan because it would be a way better Read More

The denigration of patriots Re: Parker column, Press, Mar. 4

March 6, 2015

Kathleen Parker, assuming the role of adjudicator of congressional pragmatism, excoriated some 50 conservative members of the Republican House majority, opined that “principles defended at the expense of pragmatic application is the business of priests.” So, officials whom the American people elected to stand up to an out-of-control president should just apply “pragmatism” and cave Read More

NSI Wolves show teamwork, pride Re: State 1A tournament

March 5, 2015

It is with great pleasure that we take the time to recognize one of your county’s finest programs. As avid activities and high school sports followers, we are blessed with getting to travel the state and watch our young men and women participate in a wide variety of contests that will hopefully help them as Read More

Congrats to coach Moser; not the only head coach Re: Press article, Feb. 23

March 4, 2015

We would like to congratulate Diane Moser as she retires from her coaching career at Tongue River High School. Her dedication and achievements for 41 years as head coach of the Lady Eagles is remarkable. The Press published a very nice write-up regarding her many years of service. It also stated that she was “the Read More

‘Concealed carry’ talks not realistic Re: Gun laws ineffective

March 3, 2015

With the recent discussion in the Legislature about “concealed carry” at the University of Wyoming, let’s remember past events. Did the “gun-free school” signs prevent the carnage at Columbine, Virgina Tech or Sandy Hook? No. They served to exacerbate the slaughter. The signs ensured the murder victims would be unarmed and helpless. How many murderers, Read More

When is a contract not a contract? Re: City ambulance services

The city of Sheridan entered into a contract with the Sheridan firefighters union and apparently hasn’t been living up to the agreement. Even the (appointed, not elected) senator has joined the battle from Cheyenne with his phony arbitration bill. The arbitrator who is supposed to be neutral can be anybody that the group chooses, even Read More

Letter: Failure of Great Lakes result of service

February 27, 2015

Re: Surveys needed A Feb. 24 article in The Sheridan Press read, “Great Lakes, the only airline serving Sheridan, is losing money on the flights, adding the airport won’t reach the 10,000-passenger mark this year.” If Great Lakes will not reach the 10,000 mark (approximately 14 departures and 14 returns per day), I contend this Read More

Letter: No more knee-jerk reactions

Re: Second Amendment rights, HB114 I think that the only way to ensure the safety of people in this great state of Wyoming is to quit taking away our constitutional rights. Knee-jerk response to emotionally charged issues such as school shootings is claiming our rights at an alarming rate. Any citizen who has gone through Read More

Letter: Cities ripe for history, recreation tourism

February 21, 2015

Cities ripe for history, recreation tourism Re: Advertise, promote I read that grant funds are now available for a new air carrier for the city. I do hope that we can get a very reliable carrier for this area, and have more than one flight in and out a day. The Chamber of Commerce should Read More

Predators, livestock, grazing on public land

February 20, 2015

Re: Respect mountain water Killing predators is the saddest aspect of grazing livestock in this area. The predators are noble, exquisite creatures, unlike the over-bred livestock that is often smeared with its own excrement polluting our watershed.  The mountain water deserves more respect.  It is a treasure, as are the predators. At the top of Read More
