Sheridan County

According to a news release from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, the 167 acre Lodge Grass Basin fire has not
grown for several days now on the jumbled walls
of Lodge Grass canyon. About 30 firefighters are
on Tepee Pole Ridge north of the fire, but cannot
safely climb down to extinguish the smokes and
embers that remain.

Sheridan police have decided that, owing to the difficulty in getting a car onto the street that is parked between two vehicles lengthwise, drivers will be permitted to park their cars on the right side of the street at an angle.

The Sheridan County Fairgrounds came into the county's possession through a sheriff's sale in September 1918.
