Buffalo

The Grouse Mountain Trail, which runs from Mosier Gulch west to the Bighorn National Forest will be officially dedicated in a ceremony Saturday morning.

The multi-use trail was completed last fall, but the Buffalo Trails Board decided to hold the dedication this summer.

The Johnson County School District One Board of Trustees, at their meeting this week, awarded a contract for a drainage project at Meadowlark Elementary School to Hot Iron Incorporated of Gillette.

The Hunter Trailhead and Campground, approximately 15 miles west of Buffalo on Highway 16, is open now that construction on the site has been completed.

The project relocated the trailhead and campground facilities to a new area adjacent to the old areas.

Decker Coal Company General Manager, Tim Fagley, said his company plans to double mine production in the next year.

Sheridan firemen were called to North Heights Avenue Tuesday afternoon to extinguish a residential fire. Dustin Shaw, an observant neighbor, saw the flames and notified the homeowner of the situation.

Friday is the deadline to sign up for this year's Big Horn Mountain Bluegrass Camp for Kids.

The camp will be held at the Johnson County Fairgrounds July 4th through the 6th.

A prisoner, James Friesen, was last seen leaving the Wyoming Honor Conservation Camp in Newcastle Monday morning and has not yet been located, though there have been confirmed sightings.

Several areas in Wyoming are slated to see increases in their electric rates for the sixth year in a row, but luckily, Sheridan's rates are projected to remain stable.
