The Welch Cancer Center Patient Entrance door that has opened to welcome many since 1993 will soon fall prey to the jaws of the John Deere excavator of Sheridan's SSR Construction, Inc. - perhaps before the sun sets on Wednesday. Hospital oncologists have started treating patients in the new facility and it is time to tear down the old digs to make room for Phase 2 construction.

Six Sheridan Bronc Soccer players are soon to be Hardrockers as in South Dakota School of Mines & Technology Hardrockers. Cody Schellinger who graduated from SHS in 2010 will be joined by SHS 2012 graduates-to-be Hunter Reece, Sam LeTempt, Cole Smith, Gabe Dahmke and Braydon Drell in attending school and playing soccer for the School of Mines.

It must "run" in the family as this brother/sister pair paired up for a pair of distance running wins at the Wyoming Track Classic held in Casper on Monday afternoon.

Prom preparations are underway in the small gym at the Sheridan High School. Yes, it is that time of year again - time for the prom. From this sneak preview it has all the makings to be the "World's Greatest Prom" under the big top. I'll say no more except that the Grand March will begin at 7:00 pm Saturday, May 5th in the main gym.

In a pond near Big Horn on Monday afternoon follow the leader appeared to be the lesson of the day. The five young goslings were showing off their skills as mom led the clutch with dad bringing up the rear. These five goslings are only days old. At the age of 1-2 days they can walk, swim, feed and even dive. One even started to "swim away from home" only to be rounded up by mom.

On the last day of April this robin, perhaps a male, may be scouting out a May nest building site. Robins are one of our earliest birds to nest. The male arrives first and picks out an area an acre in size. When the females arrive and join their mates the final size of the mating area is reduced to about 1/3 of an acre.

To some folks "Grazing in the Grass" is a single that hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1968 or was in the soundtrack of "The Lion King 1 1/2" in 2004 but to this buffalo in the elk pasture above Kendrick Park it is a way of life in 2012. It doesn't seem to mind the overcast sky and rainy conditions that have dampened the spirits of some this weekend.
