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

Illegal immigrants, Social Security cards

Re: Cole letter, Press, Feb. 18 Charles Cole’s letter was well-written and to the point. The punch line was his final paragraph: What are principled representatives in Congress to do regarding the latest presidential “memo” regarding the Social Security numbers for illegal immigrants? Ann Coulter describes it best. “If the Republican majority in both houses Read More

Letter: 17,600 Wyomingites versus 19 senators

February 19, 2015

17,600 Wyomingites versus 19 senators Re: Medicaid expansion There are more than 17,600 Wyoming citizens without health insurance. I’m not sure if I read it right, but it was only 19 state senators who voted against the Medicaid expansion bill. To state Sen. Charlie Scott: we need some numbers from you. Such as how many of Read More

Letter: ‘Perpetual’ war and its expectations

‘Perpetual’ war and its expectations Re: Sheridan Peacemakers American citizens are responsible for their government’s decisions and for holding it accountable.  Because war is so onerous and consequential, some of us have been holding peace vigils to protest the decision for war and to urge peace. These vigils are sometimes challenged by veterans who take Read More

Letter: Goose-stepping Democrats,“left” media in cahoots

February 18, 2015

Goose-stepping Democrats,“left” media in cahoots Re: Possible DHS shutdown Here we go again! On cue, the national “news” media, including even a few conservatives like George Will, are already blaming the Republican Congress for an impending shutdown of the Department of Homeland Security. The partial government shutdown of 2013 was an effort by principled conservatives Read More

Letter: “Crony capitalism;” voters said no in ‘08

February 17, 2015

Re: City shops for leader The city of Sheridan is advertising for a financial and administrative director. The job description for the position states the director will assume management for all administrative departments. The director will be responsible for city finances, purchasing, budget, council agenda, IT services (established IT contracts and IT priorities). The director Read More

Letter: Obama, Iran, Muslims, ISIS, humility, terrorism

February 11, 2015

Obama, Iran, Muslims, ISIS, humility, terrorism Re: National Prayer Breakfast President Obama at the annual prayer breakfast (Feb. 5) compared what is happening with ISIS today to the Crusades (800 years ago) and the Inquisition (400 years ago). He seems more concerned with getting a deal with Iran than protecting our country from terrorists. Obama Read More

Letter: Cyclists, walkers, joggers:

February 10, 2015

Cyclists, walkers, joggers: Be smart and be seen I would like to remind cyclists, walkers and joggers to wear light, bright, reflective clothing. I could have easily had a collision recently with a cyclist dressed in solid black from helmet to toe and riding a dark bike. Be smart and be seen. Cathy Storm Sheridan

Letter: More business ‘deaths’ impact Obama’s ‘recovery’

More business ‘deaths’ impact Obama’s ‘recovery’ Re: State of the Union “truths” In his State of the Union speech, President Barack Obama said that the economy had recovered and it’s time to “turn the page.”  His allies in the national “news” media continue to trumpet the low 5.7 percent unemployment rate.  However, this is the U-3 Read More

Letter: Vaccinations, circumstances

February 5, 2015

Vaccinations, circumstances The parents’ decision of whether or not to vaccinate (their children) can maybe be decided by considering the situation that would exist if vaccines were never available. Richard Kuzara Sheridan

Letter: Kinskey against firefighters, poor

Kinskey against firefighters, poor Re: Sheridan Press, Jan. 27 Will wonders never cease? In the aftermath of many controversial events in the life of Sheridan County politics, our new (state) senator, Dave Kinskey (appointed, and not elected by the people), comes out strongly against our Sheridan Fire Dept. heroes and against the needy people of Wyoming. Read More

Letter: Distasteful’ coverage is unnecessary

Distasteful’ coverage is unnecessary Re: Clemens letter, Press, Jan. 31 To Susan Clemens, I extend my heartfelt sympathy for your tragic loss compounded by the distasteful coverage by The Press. This is not the first time The Press has unnecessarily sensationalized a local tragedy at the expense of family and friends. If you are waiting for Read More

Letter: Legislators, lemmings, and a free market

February 4, 2015

Legislators, lemmings, and a free market Re: Wyoming Medicaid expansion One popular misconception about lemmings is that they mindlessly run off cliffs to their deaths, presumably following a leader with a poor sense of direction.  Lemmings can swim, but do drown when they set out for new habitat lacking the physical capacity to cross a body Read More

Letter: ‘No place for public’ with state agencies

February 3, 2015

‘No place for public’ with state agencies Re: Land rules, conflicts House Bill 209, the transfer of federal lands that cleared the House Judiciary Committee, sets Dec. 31, 2017, as the day the federal government shall extinguish title to all public lands. The day that Wyoming would receive that title would be day the public loses Read More

Letter: Recycling beneficial nationally, locally

January 31, 2015

Recycling beneficial nationally, locally Re: Environment, employment Currently less than 35 percent of households and less than 10 percent of businesses in the U.S. recycle.  Improving and increasing recycling is one of the greatest opportunities for our environment, our natural resources, and our economy. If U.S. recycling levels can reach 75 percent, it will be Read More

Letter: ‘Appointed’ Sen. Kinskey’s arbitration legislation

‘Appointed’ Sen. Kinskey’s arbitration legislation Re: Press, Jan. 27 I take exception to the word “firefighter” in the headline. Rather, “Kinskey Sponsors an Arbitration Bill” would be more accurate. Kinskey, as mayor, could not negotiate with the city firefighters for nine years. The city spent funds to arbitrate six times. Sen. Kinskey wants to eliminate Read More

Letter: Press coverage hurtful

Press coverage hurtful Re: Clemens death I must commend you on your bold reporting. My daughter was killed on Jan. 16. You published the article in the Press. I get that. She had a DUI on Jan. 11, which you printed in the report. I get that as well. What I do not get is Read More

Remembering a friend; knowing a safety need

January 30, 2015

Re: Press editorial, Jan. 24 Larry Hurst was a great friend and an incredible mentor. He had the ability to make something positive out of even the most negative situations. His death should be no different. Last Saturday, I read with great interest The Sheridan Press editorial on new bicycle safety efforts being undertaken within Read More

Letter: Beware! Meteorologists a threat to public safety

January 29, 2015

Beware! Meteorologists a threat to public safety Re: ‘Movie star’ fear mongering Meteorology is a very serious science. For centuries, man has tried to predict the weather in order to save lives and property. Yet, we now have people claiming to be meteorologists who are a discredit to the profession and a threat to public safety. Read More

Letter: The “wow!” factor; Sheridan arts scene

January 27, 2015

The “wow!” factor; Sheridan arts scene Re: Local concerts, theater Wow! What a treat for the performing arts we have had here in Sheridan. Last week, the Senior Theater Players presented “Fast Train to the Poorhouse” to a packed house. Then on Saturday evening at the WYO Theater, our Sheridan youth presented the play, “13” Read More

Letter: Classical concert draws large crowd

Classical concert draws large crowd Re: Strong community support A huge “thanks” to the Sheridan Press for their coverage of pianist Josh Wright in the newspaper. Your articles and pictures were a big part of why we had 450-plus at the First Baptist Church Friday evening for Wright’s outstanding solo performance. Thanks to John Craft Read More

Letter: Learning from the wisdom of the past

January 22, 2015

Learning from the wisdom of the past Re: Obama ‘Union’ speech The President, in his usual eloquent and highly rhetorically-gifted style, after listing all the glorious accomplishments of his administration and this year’s Santa list of wonderful goodies, stated that we should “look to our future, not to our past.”  A quote from British philosopher Read More

Letter: ‘If I were Mayor…’ city priorities

January 21, 2015

‘If I were Mayor…’ city priorities Re: Taxes, fluoride, other If I were mayor Sheridan, I would: • not put fluoride in our water ever. • cut the vehicle registration by 10 percent. • put a four-year freeze on all property taxes. If a home-owner or business does any upgrades to their property, they should Read More

Mentoring good for both lives

Re: National mentoring month January is National Mentoring Month, and January 15 is National Thank Your Mentor Day. Big Brothers Big Sisters is celebrating by thanking our mentors and the impact they have had on youth in our community. If you have had a mentor in your life that impacted who you are today, this Read More

Why close Red Grade?

Re: ATVs singled out This is the second year that ATVs have been outlawed from Red Grade Road during the winter months. The privilege was taken away from ATV riders by the county commissioners to satisfy a small group of snowmobile riders who I suppose own cabins up Red Grade. The ridiculous part about this Read More
