Letter: Life, memories before and after Santa’s visits

December 24, 2014

Re: The season’s wealth It’s the season of Christmas so let’s not consider bursting Santa’s bubble. For children everywhere who come to believe in Santa Claus, their entire universe appears wonderfully transformed. From within their perspective, this is the time when the world takes on new meaning and significance. It’s a rosy, magical place and Read More

Letter: Jaycees shopping tour celebrates 50 years

Re: 30 families, 65 children What a wonderful community we live in! This time of year, we read in the paper and hear on the radio many stories of community members helping out others. I would like to take this time to share one more story and say a generous thank you to the individuals Read More

Letter: Trail End activity sparks holiday spirit

December 20, 2014

Trail End activity sparks holiday spirit Re: Largest turnout ever I would like to thank the Trail End Museum (Kendrick Mansion) for the wonderful Christmas Open House they put on every year for the community.  It is such a treat to go to the mansion and see the beautiful decorations, listen to all the great Read More

Letter: Gollings art ‘historical,’ should stay with schools

December 19, 2014

Gollings art ‘historical,’ should stay with schools Re: Sheridan Press, Dec. 15 I was very disappointed when reading how Sheridan School District No. 2 school board is contemplating the sale of (William) Gollings paintings which I believe were given to the Sheridan public schools many years ago. I truly don’t know what our current school Read More

Letter: Citizen falls on ice; citizens come to rescue

Citizen falls on ice; citizens come to rescue I feel blessed to live in the community I do, where people are considerate and kind and see to their fellow man or woman in this case. Wednesday, I fell — hard! — on the ice, landing on my back, by the Sheridan post office. One woman Read More

Letter: Who’s paying for the fluoride push?

December 17, 2014

Re: Water changes coming The mayor’s decision to put fluoride in the water supply on Jan. 1 has not been democratically approved by the community of Sheridan and Sheridan County. Why haven’t city leaders considered the right to vote on this issue? The citizens of Sheridan County voted fluoride out of the water in 1953. Read More

Letter: Fluoride coming; representing people

December 16, 2014

Fluoride coming; representing people Re: Press, Dec. 10 On Jan. 1, four days before he swears in the newly elected city council members, Mayor John Heath will flip the switch, dumping fluorosilicic into our public water system — four days before those who spoke loudly against fluoridation during their campaign have even had a chance Read More

Letter: Not the Democrats’ first anti-CIA rodeo

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

Letter: Story home for sale; what’s going on Cheyenne?

December 11, 2014

Story home for sale; what’s going on Cheyenne? Re: Gov. Mead, tax laws, UW, Somalis, debt, proliferate spending, liberal (imported) professors, “forced charity,” the Constitution and other crap Dear Gov. Mead: I regret to say I am selling my dream home and leaving Wyoming because I cannot afford the government rent (property taxes) you (Czar Read More

Letter: Promote ambition, early graduation

December 9, 2014

Promote ambition, early graduation Re: SCSD#2 graduation coach It is great to see the community of Sheridan address the issue of school drop-outs, however, one group of students is being ignored — those who do not wish to be there. Young adults are amazingly capable. They have the energy, the ambition, brain-power and the time Read More

Fuel prices dropping everywhere but here

December 5, 2014

Re: $1.99 in OKC Thursday evening (Dec. 3), all of the network newscasts showed Oklahoma City to be the first city in the U.S. in four years to be selling fuel (87 octane/regular) for $1.99 per gallon. The same day, Sheridan’s gas stations were selling 85 octane/regular for $2.97 a gallon. We’re paying  98 cents Read More

Letter: ‘Great Christmas Stroll’, visitor enjoys Sheridan cheer

December 3, 2014

‘Great Christmas Stroll’, visitor enjoys Sheridan cheer Re: Downtown event, Nov. 29 I was able to attend this year’s Christmas Stroll on Main Street in Sheridan. The businesses and residents of the area really support the Stroll as you can tell from stores that were open and the people attending the event. I was lucky Read More

Letter: Remember Pearl Harbor; Mead declares remembrance

December 2, 2014

Remember Pearl Harbor; Mead declares remembrance Re: Dec. 7, 1941 The governor of the great state of Wyoming, the Hon. Matthew H. Mead, has proclaimed Sunday, Dec. 7, 2014, as “Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.” It is earnestly recommended by the few remaining veterans in Wyoming of the attack on Sunday, Dec. 7, 1941, that we Read More

Letter: ‘Shop With a Cop’ builds trust, friendship

‘Shop With a Cop’ builds trust, friendship Re: Dec. 20 at Kmart This is the time of the year when great stories are told. This is about our “Shop With a Cop” program that began 11 years ago here. The program allows any child in the area to spend the morning between 7 a.m. and Read More

Letter: Snow dump puts citizens, wildlife at health risk

November 29, 2014

Snow dump puts citizens, wildlife at health risk Re: South Park Natural Area The Hunter Draw area of South Park Natural Area in Sheridan is being used as a waste disposal site for the snow from streets, lots and other traffic areas.  The snow is laden with waste from motor vehicles, road agents, soils and Read More

Letter: “Home/Range” director appreciates city, “stars”

“Home/Range” director appreciates city, “stars” Re: Film debut at WYO I first discovered your community while working on the Meade Creek Ranch in Story during the summer of 1955. Dr. Pete Schunk, father of Diana, represented for me then the caring community that I would grow to love. Though I carried a small instamatic camera Read More

Letter: Gruber lies, disrespects citizens via Obamacare

November 22, 2014

Gruber lies, disrespects citizens via Obamacare Re: Health costs hit home In August of this year, we were informed that our retirement medical insurance was being cancelled due to the rising cost of health care and the requirements of ObamaCare. After working professionally for 54 years, we were counting on our promised health insurance. On Read More

Letter: Liberty, leadership, policy; citizen input, majority rules

November 21, 2014

Liberty, leadership, policy; citizen input, majority rules Re: Democracy in Sheridan Mr. Mayor, what do you have against public self-governance? How could you ethically hire an interim city manager, when the public voted to not have one? If your abilities are inadequate for the responsibilities of the appointment, then step down. Mr. Interim City Manager, Read More

Letter: WYO Theater part of memories

November 20, 2014

WYO Theater part of memories Re: Wyo 25th celebration Last Saturday, my husband and I had the great pleasure of attending the WYO Theater’s 25th anniversary celebration. The first time I ever set foot in the WYO Theater, it was as a performer. Selected as one of a handful of area elementary school students to Read More

Letter: Woodward reporting perpetuates myth

November 19, 2014

Woodward reporting perpetuates myth Re: Czaban column, Press, Nov. 15 In Sheridan Press managing editor Kristen Czaban’s recent opinion page column, she virtually deified Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward for his stellar journalistic coverage of Watergate which led to President Richard Nixon’s resignation. In passing, I must note that Woodward himself said in a PBS Read More

Letter: Keystone Pipeline, Wyoming coal income

November 18, 2014

Keystone Pipeline, Wyoming coal income Re: “Tar sand” issues The pipeline is to transport “oil” from Canadian tar sands from Alberta to the Gulf Coast for refining and export. How will this cause Wyoming oil to be more marketable? Oil from tar sands is not the same as Wyoming’s oil. Extraction of oil from tar Read More

Letter: ‘Mr. Wonderful’ act unappealing at home, abroad

‘Mr. Wonderful’ act unappealing at home, abroad Re: Vera Cole letter, Press, Nov. 14 Vera Cole has every right to be deeply concerned with the obfuscation of the       “transparent” Obama administration. She outlines the snake oil tactics orchestrated by M.I.T. professor Jonathan Gruber who blithely admitted that the ACA (Obamacare) was purposely Read More

No doubt remaining about media bias

November 14, 2014

Re: Gruber, ACA revelation This week proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the so-called mainstream “news” media will go to any length to protect the Democratic Party and its programs. Thanks only to Internet watchdogs, several video clips have been discovered showing one of the chief architects of Obamacare, M.I.T. Professor Jonathan Gruber Read More

Letter: Meaning of the midterm election

November 7, 2014

Meaning of the midterm election Re: Deliver what was promised The ink wasn’t dry on the reports from the Nov. 4 midterm election when the pundits in the so-called “news” media took up damage control to explain to us lackwits the “meaning” of the Republican victory, conforming as they do with every Republican win to Read More

Making less sense

Re: Fluoride choice? The more I think about fluoridation of our municipal water supply the less sense it makes to me. From a practical perspective just consider what tiny percentage of total water usage is actually consumed. For that which is consumed, I suspect uniform application to the teeth would be extremely inefficient. Additionally, I Read More
