On a perfect day 106 plungers plunged into Lake DeSmet for the 26th Annual Polar Bear Plunge starting at 1:00 pm, Sunday, January 1, 2013. This 5-photo collage of organizer Rob Forister, who has had lot's of plunging experience, shows off style points on entry, under the water and a smile upon exit from the chilly dip.

On Saturday in the Story/Big Horn area the Christmas bird count will be taking place. I wonder if this Bohemian Waxwing will be included. Last year's Wyoming/Utah count of Bohemian Waxwings was down with only 12 counted on 3-counts in Utah and 1329 counted on 5-counts in Wyoming. For more see: http://birds.audubon.org/sites/d...

Terry Richards, Oglala Lakota, and Bob Wilson, retired Fort Phil Kearny Superintendent, stand near the Bozeman Trail just north of the Fetterman Monument on Friday as they wait for tour members to gather for Part II of the annual December 21st tour. Terry and Bob each described the battle and heroic moments from each side of the engagement as the group walked along Massacre Hill.

How many can say they've "Strolled All 17 Years?" At least one resident of Sheridan can claim the honor of Strolling all 17 as witnessed by the decorative Christmas display hanging in her house that shows all of the Stroll Buttons - 1996 to 2012.

Wednesday evening in the Sue Henry Auditorium Sheridan High School presented the SHS Choir Winter Concert to a standing room only audience in the final concert of the year.

The Sheridan High School wrestlers took on Billings Senior Tuesday evening in their first home match of the year. Sheridan's Colin Harnish, shown here, won over Evan Turnquist in the 126# weight class by a fall at 1:40 to give Sheridan 6-points. Sheridan also won by falls in the 160# and 195# weight classes with Alex Smiley winning at :40 and Tory Music winning at 3:30.

Saturday the annual Sheridan area Christmas bird count was underway by the Bighorn Chapter of the Audubon Society when these Bohemian Waxwings were seen in Big Horn. But how do you count 'em when there are so many? This year's count is being headed up by Peter Mohseni and will include a 15-mile circle around the city of Sheridan.
