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… Continue Reading

Letter: Obamacare doesn’t fit ‘Wyoming values’

Re: Expansion before Legislature Several bills were brought for Obamacare Medicaid Expansion in 2014 Legislature, and when all failed, plans were put into the budget anyway pending 2015 legislative approval. Wyoming voters said a loud and clear “No!” to Obamacare two years ago when voting on the health care amendment. Those who have had a… Continue Reading

Letter: City councilman, conflict of interest

Re: Sheridan Press, Jan. 5 It sure didn’t take long for Sheridan City Councilman Alex Lee to start pushing his agenda: use taxpayer dollars to upgrade the Internet for me and my “six figure” customers. With his seeming disregard for conflict of interest rules, Lee will make a swell politician! Charles Vickery Sheridan Continue Reading

Letter: Al Qaeda not on the run after all

Re: Paris terrorism, Press, Jan. 15 Al Qaeda in Yemen has claimed responsibility for the murder of the 12 French journalists, despite President Obama’s claim during his re-election campaign in 2012 that “Al Qaeda is on the run.”  And now we have witnessed a wholesale slaughter of 2,000 innocents in Nigeria at the hands of… Continue Reading

New GOP Congress “should do their duty”

Re: Resolutions and leadership It’s traditional New Year’s resolution time. Hopefully the 114th Congress, which will convene early in January under Republican leadership in both houses, will adopt some resolutions based on the voters’ desire to actively oppose the current president’s leftwing executive orders and “memos.”  If the public wanted Congress to simply “get things… Continue Reading

Letter: County practicing selected enforcement

County practicing selected enforcement Re: Garage removal I had built a $17,000 new construction detached storage building on my property this summer in Story. I built this building not only for my personal items, construction tools and equipment; I also built this garage to clean up the property for a fire lane and to promote… Continue Reading

Letter: Friendliest city in the West

Re: Trip in Story On July 9, our son Jeff and family, who were visiting from Tennessee, and ourselves went to a favorite spot, the Story Fish Hatchery, in their car with Tennessee license plates. After a lovely morning of picnic brunch, tour of the facility and viewing of the fish in their various stages… Continue Reading

Letter: Blessed by our community

Re: Support after a loss My kids and I have been through rough times with losing my husband and their dad at the end of August to cancer. The community of Sheridan has been amazing to us, from the support while Kevin was battling cancer to helping us cope afterward. I cannot say enough good… Continue Reading

Obama’s unnecessary move in Cuba

Re: Reopening of U.S. relations For some reason, President Barack Obama has reached out to the Castros in a completely one-sided “deal” with American taxpayers’ dollars to replace the money the Cuban government used to get from the old Soviet Union and, later, from Venezuela until the latter’s petro dollars dried up. And what exactly… Continue Reading

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

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… Continue Reading

Letter: Trail End activity sparks holiday spirit

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… Continue Reading

Letter: Who’s paying for the fluoride push?

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.… Continue Reading

Letter: Fluoride coming; representing people

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… Continue Reading

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,… Continue Reading

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

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… Continue Reading

Letter: Promote ambition, early graduation

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… Continue Reading

Fuel prices dropping everywhere but here

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… Continue Reading
