Dayton

A halo of silence surrounded Holy Name Church in Sheridan Thursday. Approximately 300 people stood in reverence and as a shield of "protection" for the mourners attending the service of Private Jesse Cerwick.

In no particular order, the finalists are:

Martin Kobza, a superintendent in Thermopolis, WY. He will visit District 1 February 7th and 8th to be interviewed by the School Board, tour all the schools in Big Horn, Ranchester and Dayton, and speak on both sides of the district to the public.

"Johnson County's Got Talent." That's the name of the variety show and the proof will be evident this weekend at the Buffalo High School Auditorium as performers of all types entertain the crowds all to benefit Susie Bowling Lawrence Hospice.

Since the story broke that members of the Westboro Church might be protesting at several memorial services in Sheridan this week, there has been much talk about protesting the protesters

The Sheridan Police Department is aware of claims by this group [the Westboro Baptist Church] that they will be in Sheridan to protest at this funeral. This group has made that claim previously for funerals of Wyoming Veterans and has not shown up. There is a state statute that requires that any protesters must stay 300 feet away from any funeral or cemetery. The Police Department intends to enforce that.

Dismay, sadness and horror are just a few of the reactions expressed by community members and those “of faith” in reaction to the news that protesters from the Westboro Church may attend services in Sheridan this week.

Legislation that is moving through the Wyoming Legislature has to do with strengthening the law regarding seat belt use.

Today in Sheridan, the VA Medical Center and the Sheridan Police Department are teaming up on a unique project. Will Banks is a Social Worker and Homeless Grant and Per Diem Liaison at the VAMC. He explains.
