“Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War,” a special presentation and program, will begin Monday at the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library. There will be an opening reception from 5 to 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
For a schedule/info: 675-8585; or, www.sheridanwyolibrary.org.
Speaking of books…….
Judy Musgrave of the Sheridan County Historical Museum reports how “thanks to your (Sheridan Press) wonderful publicity,” the museum has pre-sold enough cookbooks to pay for more than half of its printing.
Judy is the chairman of the museum’s cookbook committee. The book: “Recipes from the Kitchens of Yesterday and Today: Celebrating the 125th Anniversary of Sheridan County Wyoming.”
To date, these cookbooks are being sent to homes in Montana, North Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Texas, New York, Oregon, Florida, Washington, Kansas and of course, throughout Wyoming.
Judy confirms how the cookbook is “the perfect Mother’s Day gift.”
You can purchase them at the museum (Tuesdays-Saturdays, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. until May 1 when expanded hours take place) or order via phone (675-1150; or, info@SheridanCountyHistory.org.)
First week of major league baseball (Hallelujah!) stuff………..
• The injured and embattled N.Y. Yankee infielder, Alex Rodriquez, has been riding the pine at $172,839 per game, according to a story in The Wall Street Journal. Someone has figured out that given A-Rod’s contract and his penchant for sunflower seeds, while he sits and watches the games, is $900 per seed.
• Another early-season hope is how when the Yankees and the Red Sox play, they can keep it under four hours. Watching those guys is akin to a “Lord of the Rings/Hobbit” sequel, but with more people on injured reserve.
• A company called Baseball Prospectus has taken talent, schedules, histories and odds into play to determine at the season’s outset which teams have the best shot of making the playoffs: Tigers, Angels, Rangers, Reds, Dodgers, Nationals. Least favored: Twins, Astros, Rockies, Marlins.
How to Hold an Election
“Voting for the pope is a great system; they don’t allow everybody to vote, like those just out of a sanitarium. The popes, if you’ve studied them, are all comparatively great men with brilliant ideas, whereas the American presidents, if you’ve studied them, were a bunch of schmucks.”
— Jackie Mason, in The New York Times
