Fire Prevention Week just ended and National Volunteer Week is not until April but volunteers such as the members of the Big Horn Volunteer Fire Department shown here should be recognized for what they do throughout the year.
On Friday afternoon in Dayton it was no match as the unbeaten #2 ranked Big Horn Rams trounced the winless Tongue River Eagles 49 to 8. The TD's came early and often - this one near the 4:50 mark of the 1st quarter was a hand off from Connor McCafferty to Scott Passini. Scott took the hand off, plowed through a trio of eagles, burst into the open at the 40 and ran in for the score.
The #3 ranked Lady Eagles from Tongue River may have arrived in Big Horn by bus but then they took to the air and soared over the Lady Rams in three sets 25-13, 25-16, 25-13. When the final point was scored in the third set the TR players and fans simultaneously erupted in celebration - they had not only swept the Lady Rams on the day but almost on the year.
The Library Mezzanine of the Sheridan County Fulmer Public Library is literally decked out in wall-to-wall quilts for all to admire. You may have missed the opening reception but you have until the end of October to view these works of art. At the desk at the top of the stairs is a binder of photos and clippings going back to the first fiber show: July-August 1998.
A media release issued by the Sheridan Police Department states that at approximately 1330 hrs on October 9, 2012, the Sheridan Police Department received a report of a Golden Eagle perched on a house on the 1600 block of South Thurmond Ave.
Midway through Fire Prevention Week, October 7 through October 13, 2012, as we learn and work on ways to prevent fires it is perhaps fitting to pause and remember two Sheridan Firefighters, Edward N. Green (1940 -2007) and Fred W. Tossie (1887-1929).
