A "living valentine" but not for you deer

As the common name suggests, bleeding heart plants, bear heart-shaped flowers such as these, from which a little "drop of blood" dangles at the bottom. Bleeding heart plants are perennials that can withstand the cold of the Sheridan area, grow 2 to 3 feet high and as the title suggests they are deer-resistant - perhaps because all parts of the plant are poisonous if ingested in large quantity.

Gunning for Montana

Between views of "The Gun" Wyoming All-Star, Colby Wollenman from Big Horn, hones his shooting skills, using the Gun, in preparation for the Wyoming v/s Montana All-Star Basketball Series that will kick-off Friday night in the Bruce Hoffman Golden Dome at Sheridan College.

The Sheridan Main Street reconstruction project makes this spot of beauty inaccessible for viewing by vehicle this year. But for pedestrians, adjacent to the reconstruction zone is this cluster of beautiful fragrant lilacs in front of Taylor Place, the former John S. Taylor School.

At the Big Horn Campus last Friday everyone was having a bubbly good time as the teachers bid farewell to the departing students. Big Horn Elementary 3rd Grade teacher Nan Wallach was having lots of success getting her bubbles to blow as the teachers bid their students farewell on the last day of school.

One Worm + Four Mouths = More Work

The "More Work" means that both robin parents are full time haulers of a lot of food during the 9 - 16 days the babies will spend in the nest after hatching. Robins usually lay four eggs and then stop so what you see here is typical. Like most birds, they lay one egg a day until their clutch is complete. Likewise, the eggs usually hatch a day apart in the order in which they were laid.

Serving Pie at Junior High

Perhaps this is why counselors don't work in the school cafeteria on a regular basis. Look at how Counselor Mary Barbula serves pie to Assistant Principal Kim Anderson on the last day of school at Sheridan Junior High. During the last minutes of the school year most students were in the stands as a circle of students and faculty members tossed stuffed toys around until the music stopped.

As the early morning sun peered through the new leaves of spring Debbie Bakel and her husband Richard from Loveland, Colorado were busy spring cleaning statues in the Sheridan Area. Here they are busy cleaning "Summit CEO's" by J. C. Dye that is part of Sheridan's permanent public art display thanks to a donation by Sheridan Media and the Sheridan Public Arts Committee.

Fun is not measured by the length of the slide

Minutes after opening for the season at 12:30 pm on Monday 4th grader Corey Hansford goes down the 170-foot slide into 59-degree water on the left while Kindergartner-to-be Ty Miller goes down the 6-foot slide out of a frogs mouth into much warmer water. You be the judge as to who is having the most fun.
