Sheridan Press tidings……
• The Sheridan Press will launch the first-ever FAB Women’s Conference at Sheridan College, Oct. 4-5. (FAB: For. About. By. Women.)
The Press’ managing editor, Kristen Czaban, is coordinating the event and there is also a planning committee involved as well: Elaine Henry, Wendy Smith, Susan Woody, Amy Albrecht, Rhonda Weber and Jenny Craft. The event will feature educational sessions with guest speakers, an expo and a “Woman of the Year” banquet. For more info, contact Ms. Czaban, 672-2431.
• The Press has partnered with Legacy.com to complement our print edition of paid obituaries. Check out these life stories on www.thesheridanpress.com, then click on the obituaries link. Also included are postings of national obituaries. In May, the Press added to its online-only content AP Digital photos to expand its website features.
Also online are videos from The Associated Press. We’re test-driving them (videos) for two months to determine interest to keep them.
There was a nice crowd at the Sheridan County Museum last Saturday welcoming Cynde Georgen’s new book, “Snippets of Sheridan County History.” It’s a year-by-year compilation of brief, newsy stories from the archival pages of The Sheridan Post, The Sheridan Enterprise and The Sheridan Press. It’s on sale at the museum and was published by the Sheridan County Historical Society.
School’s out, so here’s a dose of teacher humor. (My mother taught school for 24 years.)
• A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of blood.
Trying to make the matter clearer, she said, “Now, class, if I stood on my head, the blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn red in the face.”
“Yes,” the class said.
“Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position the blood doesn’t run into my feet?’”
A little fellow shouted, “ ‘Cause your feet ain’t empty!”
• The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic elementary school for lunch.
At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note and posted on the apple tray: “Take only ONE. God is watching.”
Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies. A child had written a note, “Take all you want. God is watching the apples.”
