Letters to the Editor

No respect for voters’ wishes

July 25, 2014

Re: chief of staff appointment   I read in Saturdays paper that police chief Adriaens was going to be appointed as interim Chief of Staff. This position really sounds like a city manager. A few years ago we the voters voted down the city manager position. Really, is Sheridan big enough for a chief of Read More

Adriaens appointment a ‘put’

Re: new chief of staff   The “memo” has created a new job at city hall. City officials have said the city is in a “transition” period. The acting mayor, John Heath, is silent. Perhaps he is lying in a dark room, with a cool cloth on his head. City hall is now run by Read More

‘Fatality fine’

Re: Time to get serious about worker safety   This letter is to the citizens of Wyoming and elected officials in the state and is in response to the worker safety statistics addressed by the Casper Star-Tribune editorial board in its May 19 editorial (“Time for lawmakers to restart worker safety conversation”). Its wake-up call Read More

Don’t want an administrator

July 22, 2014

Re: City’s chief of staff   Amazing; The Sheridan Press’ articles on the “new” chief of staff position in Friday’s and Saturday’s editions of the paper came at a surprise. Saturday morning’s edition article is correct. The title of chief of staff is a name only change for city administrator. Although the residents of Sheridan Read More

Couldn’t have said it better

Re: July 17, Kinskey column   I’m writing in response to the July 17, 2014, Publishers Notebook by Stephen Woody, “Column about Kinskey, no need to say more.” Your graceful commentary could not have framed it any better. No thinking person can deny that Mayor Kinskey provided outstanding leadership and acted in Sheridan’s best interest. Read More

Rock quarries good for local uses, economy

July 16, 2014

Re: County commission decision   Recent letters in The Sheridan Press indicate that some of our citizens have a problem with the operations of rock quarries and the transporting of such on some of the Sheridan roads. The question is: Do these residents fully understand the demand for all the products that a rock quarry Read More

Leftist tactics, whoppers; opinions versus facts

July 15, 2014

Re: Milbank column, Press, July 12   In his column published in Saturday’s Sheridan Press, Dana Milbank once again put the tactics of the left on full display, constructing a straw man of an attention deficit disorder affliction in today’s politics, then weaving into his destruction of that straw man some subtle, yet quite illuminating, Read More

Supports Pete Carroll

Re: Aug. primary   Under the leadership of Pete Carroll, the Sheridan County Treasurer’s office runs efficiently and effectively.  If you ask Pete why that is, he’ll tell you that it’s because he has a great staff who are dedicated to serving the people of Sheridan County — and that’s true. But a great team Read More

Pay off mortgage; accountability needed Re: SCSD1 rec center proposal I have been a citizen of the Tongue River Valley for 31 years. I received my college education in recreation leadership, and therapeutic recreation from Central Michigan University in 1982.  I am very proud to be one of the original founders of the very successful Read More

Inept administration causes needless deaths Re: Rath letter, Press, June 20   I couldn’t agree more than with letter writer Dale Rath’s letter. Coincidentally, Charles Krauthammer’s column, “Abdication has a price – return of insurgency” which also appeared in the same issue was in total accord with Rath’s letter. You’re in excellent company, Mr. Rath. Read More

Returning to Sheridan Re: Bighotn Mountain Wild and Senic Trail Run   This last weekend I had the distinct pleasure (yes, pleasure!) of returning to Sheridan to run in the 22nd Annual Bighorn Mountain Wild and Scenic Trail Run. While the mountains served up a not-unexpected dose of fickle weather, the unflappable spirit and support Read More

Follow our county plan Re: Say ‘no’ to quarry I wish to call the community’s attention to a proposal before the county commissioners. The proposal is for a permit to mine gravel on Bird Farm Road. The Planning and Zoning Commission voted it down twice and it comes to the county commissioners for a final Read More

VA fiasco Re: Obamacare   The Veterans Affair medical fiasco gives us insight on what Obamacare is going to be. Scary, isn’t it?   Charles Vickery Sheridan   Ramaco not newsworthy; story is more about ‘hope’ Re: Press, June 17   Ramaco hopes to mine coal between Sheridan and Ranchester. The company holdings are 90 Read More

‘Limp-wristed’ policies causing Iraqi chaos

June 20, 2014

Re: Bennett cartoon, Press, June 17   I gazed at another disgusting political cartoon from the political hack (Clay) Bennett (Chattanooga Times Free Press).  The obvious lack of thoughtful evaluation versus pure leftist spite is all it projected. This past week, we have seen the disastrous effects of the totally inept foreign policy that was Read More

Concerts, music, dancing

June 13, 2014

Re: Nuisance overstated In response to the June 11 letter form Ms. Pricilla Schraudner, regarding the audacity of the Trails End Concert Park bringing in live music to Sheridan, I’ll offer this; with you living near Sheridan High School, a few miles away from the Concert Park, the noise can only be a light echo Read More

‘Fakes’ clog VA process; time to overhaul system Re: VA care scandal in U.S.   Accountability, otherwise called “doing the right thing” in a social context, according to a scientific study of toddlers, indicates that most humans are born with that trait.  So where does that natural tendency get sidetracked? Parents? Teachers? Peers? Or like Read More

Don’t impose on neighbors

May 16, 2014

Re: Sales tax vote One more reason for lower taxes: more freedom. Since most of us must sacrifice our time working for a living and paying taxes with the money we earn, the less we pay in taxes, means more free time. Lower taxes equal more freedom. If we vote for a lower sales tax Read More

‘Tah- dah’ vs. ‘Ta do’

Re: City’s new fiber diet The city of Sheridan has provided a report titled, “Fiber connection initiative Oct. 15, 2013, update.” The consultant for the update was Joe Sharkey. He was paid $20,256.42. The update is 10 pages. It has three pages of text. Page one is 274 words, page two is 269 words and Read More

Strong ‘odor’ throughout city

May 9, 2014

Re: Voting, data centers, other There is a strong, disgusting odor in the air in Sheridan. The recent questionable activities of our elected officials, as reported in the Press, only magnifies the “what’s in it for me?” concept that plagues our country. There was no great public outburst when the ground rules were changed on Read More

Animal care critical for growing community

Re: Supports optional tax I strongly support the inclusion of nonprofits in the distribution of the Optional One-Cent Sales Tax. I am especially interested in seeing significant funding provided to the Sheridan Dog and Cat Shelter and Second Chance Sheridan Cat Rescue for the care of animals and low cost/free spay and neuter programs. The Read More

Benghazi attack downplayed, mocked

Re: Milbank column, Press, May 7   In the face of incontrovertible evidence that high officials in the Obama White House promoted (and perhaps concocted) an alibi for the Benghazi tragedy (the infamous “internet video”), columnist Dana Milbank persists in downplaying the seriousness of this matter.  He continues his ad hominem attacks on Republicans in Read More

SCSD2 ignores open government statutes ER: Lawsuit, Press vs school district A transparent and open governing body is a basic requirement for any local government.  Sheridan School District 2’s board does not meet this requirement nor does it appear they feel there is any need to follow the laws for open government. Being an open Read More

Entangled alliances

May 2, 2014

Re: Rocky Mountain Fiber The city of Sheridan hired Joe Sharkey under two contracts to do two fiber assessment reports. Sharkey signed both contracts on Oct. 10, 2013. One contract was titled, “Fiber connection investigation.” This contract was for $4,000 and travel costs. The travel costs were split with two other cities. Per this contract, Read More

Fluoride in water is ongoing health benefit Re: City of Sheridan plans Adding fluoride to our drinking water is a good thing. I am a dental hygienist with 30 years of experience and a master’s degree in oral biology. I have seen the pain and suffering tooth decay can cause. For this reason, I am Read More

Dislikes Press coverage Of SCSD2 board actions Re: Documents, open meetings violations I am disappointed in the recent Press coverage of events related to Sheridan County School District 2. In the April 11 edition, two front page articles accused the school district of illegal activities. One of the articles deemed worthy of front page news Read More
