In what appears to be the latest “shot across the bow” between Johnson County Attorney Ken DeCock and County Assessor Cindy Rogers, the two offices squared off in a verbal exchange at the county commissioner's meeting Tuesday.

Officials with the National Incident Management Team have confirmed the Gilead fire, which is burning in the Big Horn National Forest approximately 10 miles northeast from Buffalo and 8 miles from Story, has now reached 1720 acres.

Last week, 24 people were arrested in or around Sheridan for charges related to distribution of methamphetamine.

The Sheridan Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the first ever Sheridan Brewfest at Whitney Plaza from 2-8 p.m. Saturday, and tickets purchased in advance are $10 off.

At the Johnson County School District One Board of Trustees meeting last week, the board heard a mostly positive update from District Business Manager Matt Ramey on construction and remodeling at the district's schools.

The Johnson County Commissioners will have their first meeting of September on Tuesday and according to their Agenda, will discuss the OJJDP Grant Application with County Attorney Ken DeCock, as well as the proposed county fuel depot, both of which have been issues at the heart of recent “bad blood” between the commission and the attorney's office.
