Dec 13 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm

SHERIDAN — In less than three years Sheridan native Mike Sweeney launched Summit Energy Services and Liquid Logistics, grew the companies to over 175 employees with almost $40 million in annual revenue, and then sold both businesses to Waste Management, Inc.

Prior to launching Summit, Sweeney worked as a regional manager for an oil and gas construction company. It was this position that brought him to the Williston Basin in 2009. He has extensive management experience in the energy industry as well as in engineering, banking, and international business start-up.

Civic Theatre Guild to present ‘Bakersfield Mist’ @ Carriage House Theater
Jan 20 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Civic Theatre Guild will present the third show of its season beginning Jan. 20 at the Carriage House Theater.

“Bakersfield Mist” is a comedy written by Stephen Sachs and directed by Gene Davis.

The play was inspired by a true story that eventually was the subject of a documentary by 60 Minutes. Maude, an unemployed bartender living in a trailer park, buys a painting for $5 at a thrift store. The local art teacher sees it and thinks it could be a lost abstract masterpiece by Jackson Pollock worth millions. After careful research, eventually the International Foundation for Art Research gets involved and sends out its expert Lionel Percy to authenticate the painting. 

The result is a classic culture clash over who defines what art is and what determines its worth. 

The play stars CTG veterans Aaron Odom as Lionel and Erin Kranz as Maude.

Performance dates are Jan. 20-22, Jan. 27-29 and Feb. 2-4. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinées will begin at 2 p.m. 

 Tickets are available at WYO Theater box office, wyotheater.com or at the Carriage House Theater one hour before the performance. Tickets cost $15 per adult and $12 per senior, military member or student.

This play is rated MA for mature audiences due to adult language.

The Carriage House Theater is located at 419 Delphi Ave.

SC to host presentation on fossil discovery @ Sheridan College
Mar 8 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

SHERIDAN — The Sheridan College Museum of Discovery lecture series will feature a presentation titled “Grasslands to Well Pad — Fossil Discovery During Construction Monitoring” on March 8 at 7 p.m.

The lecture is free and open to the public.

Paleontologists from SWCA Environmental Consultants conducted initial surveys for a proposed well pad development in eastern Wyoming. The survey area was nearly entirely vegetated, and it presented few bedrock exposures. Though sparse, observed fossils consisted of heavily weathered bone fragments. A year later a paleontologist was on site full time to monitor ground disturbing activities.

Initial discoveries included isolated skeletal elements from hadrosaur and ceratopsian dinosaurs and turtles. Then three closely associated bones were exposed in a channel sandstone horizon. An exploratory excavation revealed that the elements were really one specimen — a partially complete skull of cf. Triceratops horridus.

Because this project followed proper mitigation protocol, a new specimen of Triceratops and associated geographic and stratigraphic data will be available for study.

Georgia Knauss, who will give the presentation, is the paleontology lead at SWCA Environmental Consultants based in Sheridan; and works as a mitigation paleontologist.

Sheridan College is located at 3059 Coffeen Ave.
