Big game hunt area season setting @ Wyoming Game and Fish Department regional office
Mar 14 @ 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — Wyoming Game and Fish Department officials are encouraging hunters who pursue big game in the hunt areas around Sheridan to attend a season setting open house Monday from 4-7 p.m. at the Game and Fish Regional Office.

“We are proposing some significant changes to the hunting season structure for deer and elk in some hunt areas, particularly those areas west of Sheridan,” WGFD wildlife biologist Tim Thomas said. “The open house on March 14 provides an opportunity for hunters and the public to learn about local wildlife populations, ask questions and visit with local Game and Fish biologists and game wardens about the proposed upcoming hunting seasons.  We really encourage sportsmen to take advantage of this open house to provide input.”

The following changes are being considered:

• Areas 24 deer: To reduce regulation complexity, WGFD proposes closing the general license deer season on Nov. 30 with no extension into December. Antlerless deer harvest in December will only be on Type 6 and Type 8 doe/fawn licenses.

• Area 25 deer: Consider options for changing the deer season, with potential changes starting in 2017.

• Area 27 deer: WGFD proposes changing the general license deer season during October from “any deer” to “antlered mule deer or any white-tailed deer.” WGFD also proposes closing the general license deer season Nov. 30 with no extension into December. Antlerless white-tailed deer harvest in December will only be on Type 8 licenses.

• Area 37 elk: WGFD proposes eliminating the Type 6 September early cow elk season on national forest north of Wolf Creek Trail. This season is no longer meeting objectives. Cow elk hunting would still be allowed off national forest in September. Additionally, WGFD proposes closing the Area 37 Elk Type 6 season Nov. 30.

• Implement an Area 37 Elk Type 7 cow/calf season Dec. 1–31 off national forest. This season is intended to address damage issues on private lands with a limited number of hunters. This license type and season structure will be closely monitored to see if it addresses our goals.

Area 38 elk: Due to high elk numbers observed this year, WGFD proposes the Area 38 Type 4 license be valid in the entire area during the whole season. WGFD will likely return to the traditional restriction on this license type in subsequent years.

If you are unable to attend the open house, written comments may also be mailed to:  Wyoming Game and Fish Department, Attn: Regulations, 3030 Energy Lane, Casper, WY 82604. Individuals may also provide comments by going online at: wgfd.wyo.gov and clicking on “Get Involved” and the “Public Meetings” tab. All written comments must be received by 5 p.m. March 25 and are provided to the Wyoming Game and Fish Commission and field personnel for review.

City meeting on water meter replacements @ Sheridan County YMCA
Apr 6 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

SHERIDAN — City staff will host a public meeting on Wednesday from 6-7 p.m. at the Sheridan County YMCA youth room to discuss a water meter replacement project.

The project will begin this fall. Most water meters in Sheridan County are about 20 years old and in need of replacement.

Later this year the city of Sheridan and the Sheridan Area Water Supply Joint Powers Board will begin installing new water meters in approximately 9,000 locations across the county. Meter-reading infrastructure within the water service area also will be updated.

State grants will cover half of the project costs. The remaining cost of the project will be managed with a 20-year, zero-percent state loan.

According to city officials, installing meters all at once also allows for bulk purchasing, efficient use of city resources and convenient/consistent installation for citizens.

The next steps include the city hiring a vendor to design the infrastructure and to procure and install the meters.

City officials estimate that the project will begin by the end of this year. Customers will be notified when installations begin in their area so that they may schedule a convenient time for meter replacement.

To learn more, see www.sheridanwy.net or email Chad Lynn at clynn@ridgepointwyo.com.

The Sheridan County YMCA is located at 417 N. Jefferson St.

Wyoming Baroque @ Sheridan College
Apr 6 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

SHERIDAN — Wyoming Baroque will perform in the atrium of the Edward A. Whitney Academic Center at Sheridan College on Wednesday from 7-8:30 p.m.

Wyoming Baroque brings together the country’s most dynamic, historically informed instrumentalists to Wyoming. They will play instruments set up to baroque-era specifications, including the use of natural gut strings and lower-pitched tuning. Performers are coming from San Francisco, Indianapolis, Washington, D.C., and North Carolina, to present a free concert at Sheridan College.

The repertoire for the concert explores tensions between Italian and French aesthetics of the 17th century and Francois Couperin’s reconciliation of the rift with his allegorical composition “L’Apotheose de Lully” (1725). The program concludes with a performance of an original composition by Dr. Mark Bergman, director of strings at Sheridan College, entitled “Steampunk Baroque.” In the spirit of “L’Apotheose de Lully,” this work synthesizes the diverse aesthetics of European baroque music, punk rock and 19th century art songs.

The concert is free and open to the public.

For more information, call Bergman at 674-6446, ext. 3010 or by email to mbergman@sheridan.edu.
