Kent and Avis Lundine of Casper with their 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air 2-door hard top took home the coveted "Best of Show" at the 2012 KARZ Rod Run held on Main Street on Saturday. The 126 entries were narrowed to but one and Kent and Avis were presented the - one of a kind - award (made by Adler Welding of Sheridan) during the banquet held at the Kalif Shrine Auditorium Saturday evening.

Former Mayor Jim Wilson is about 7 miles into the 10-mile round trip between South Park to North Park and back to South Park on Saturday morning. He was seen zooming down Alger Avenue on the return trip aboard his Western Flyer. You could run, bike, walk or stroll on today's outing and dogs were welcome.

Sheridan's 100 degrees on Sunday was the first 100 of the year, Monday's 100 set a new record and Tuesday's 102 was 3 degrees below the record of 105 set in 1988. As for Wednesday's forecast of 88 - enjoy the cool down 'cause it won't last - it's back in the 90's for Thursday and beyond.

Summer officially started in the Sheridan area at 5:09 pm Wednesday - and this is what it looked like just an hour later. While most of the nation was sweltering it out with temperatures above 90 we peaked out at 78 degrees. Temperatures are headed up however, with Thursday expected to hit 84, Friday 90, Saturday 91 and - get ready for this - 102 on Sunday.
