Faith Zdziarski, age 2, from Sheridan wants to remind you to get your Sheridan WYO Rodeo tickets soon as Rodeo Week starts July 8th. Faith was recently at the Sheridan County High School Rodeo where she had a front row seat but still elected to lean over the rail to get a better view of her brother, Jeffery Zdziarski who was about to come out of the saddle bronc riding chute across the arena.

Just days after the groundbreaking crews from Excel Construction were busy at the corner of Wyoming Avenue and Burkitt Street, aka "malfunction junction," on Thursday morning.The asphalt was being removed in the 100 block of Wyoming Avenue as were several elder cedar trees in the immediate vicinity.

Gary Small & The Coyote Bros kicked off the 4th of July evening playing from the deck of the Big Horn Equestrian Center Club House prior to the big fireworks show at 10:00 pm. The weather was perfect, food was in abundance and the music was great as a steady stream of vehicles filled the polo field. For more on the band see: www.coyotebros.net

Dale Allen of Mills Wyoming and his 1940 Ford Super Deluxe Convertible took home top honors at the annual KARZ Rod Run Car Show Saturday evening during the banquet held at the Kalif Shrine Auditorium. Nearly 200 vehicles in numerous categories shined up Main Street Saturday and it was Dale who received the top award from KARZ Club president Scott Calkins.

From 10:30 am until 2:00 pm Saturday over 150 hot rods, muscle and classic cars and trucks will invade Sheridan's Historic Main Street - from Brundage to Alger - for all to see. There will be awards to winners in kids, women and men categories - as judged by attendees, so show up and vote for your favorite. The one shown here is from the Black Hills and is owned by Bruce Peterson.

At precisely 2:02 pm Friday, Shelli Vits of 4 Seasons Lawn Care drives the first non-construction vehicle east bound on 5th Street through the Main Street intersection as she follows the Anderson Sign truck that carries the street barricade signs that have long stood at 5th and Val Vista - 5th Street is now officially open for two-way traffic, again.
