At 9:15 Friday morning the last float in the Big Horn Homecoming Parade says it all, "GO RAMS." Most of the Ram football players, except the holders of the banner, are on their last rest break aboard the homecoming float as the coaches and managers stand at the end of the trailer. It won't be long now until the #2 ranked Rams meet the Wheatland Bulldogs on the gridiron.

A year and a half ago a Freshman Taylor Nance, seen here, was playing in the Big Horn/Tongue River Golf Invite and now Taylor is the Wyoming 2A State Champion - what a difference a year makes. Saturday the Big Horn Junior won the Class 2A State Golf Title in Lovell. On Friday she shot a first day 95 and followed that up with a 98 on Saturday to finish a stroke ahead of Sundance's Kacie O'Connor.
The first day of Fall for 2012 began on September 22, at 8:49 am MDT in the Northern Hemisphere. Seeing this display at the home of Marge and Harvey Purcell, just south of the college, reminded me that Fall was on the horizon - a thought worth showing and sharing with you today, now that it has officially arrived. "It's September 22nd - Think Fall."
On Thursday evening the Big Horn Lady Rams made it look easy as they downed the Moorcroft Lady Wolves in three sets: 25-5, 25-9, & 25-12. Here you see Lady Ram Senior Gracie Goldhammer going up to "hammer" the ball between defenders #15 Kimberly VerBurg and #8 Kristen Noyes to put her team up 11 to 3 in game two.
The folks from Sheridan Tent and Awning were busy recovering a wagon in Big Horn Thursday afternoon. Jason Bare was working on the outside as the crew recovered the wagon above the Big Horn Smokehouse & Saloon at 158 Johnson Street in Big Horn - the new covering depicts the new name of the business.
