Sheridan County

The Wyoming Supreme Court has endorsed a 2011 state law allowing judges to grant authority to police over the telephone to force motorists to submit to DUI testing.

In news coming from the governor's office, we've learned that 233 state employees will be furloughed Monday as part of the federal government shutdown.

Most roads in the northeaster part of the state were re-opened by 6 last night, according to Ronda Holwell of the Wyoming Department of Transportation regional office in Sheridan.

By the end of the day Saturday, all roads leading in and out of Sheridan were open, but still wet and slick in some spots.

Anyone driving through Sheridan Friday morning as the storm was dropping heavy, wet snow in some places up to a foot, could see what kind of toll the blizzard was taking on the town, just from the number of tree branches downed on houses, trees and cars.

Everyone escaped injury Friday night and a home was saved due to quick work by local firefighters.

Revenues are up and expenses are down at the Sheridan Memorial Hospital, compared to the same time last year.

An early winter storm dropped into Idaho overnight Thursday to Friday and rotated through Wyoming leaving about a foot of snow covering the foothills of the Big Horns of the Rocky Mountains.
