Sheridan Wyo Rodeo week is officially underway and the first of four PRCA rodeo performances is set to kick off this Wednesday night at the fairgrounds. While there are many events throughout rodeo week that are geared for all ages, one event in particular isn't necessarily kid friendly.
Wyoming's Fourth Judicial District (Sheridan and Johnson Counties) now has a second District Judge that will be seated in Buffalo/Johnson County.

You could hear the music blocks away, but being there, you felt the electricity. It was the first of its kind in Wyoming; it was the 1st annual Cowboy State Strongman Classic held in front of PUREENERGY Fitness on Riverside.
