SEEDA/Forward Sheridan Collaboration Continues To Grow

The Sheridan Economic and Education Development Authority discussed the possibilities that their partnership with Forward Sheridan will provide at their monthly meeting Tuesday. SEEDA Chairman Tom Sachse says the collaboration allows them to broaden their grant opportunities.

Sheridan Mayor Dave Kinskey highlighted one very important aspect of applying for grants through the Wyoming Business Council.

Also as the partnership with Forward Sheridan continues to grow, it was discussed that perhaps the SEEDA Board meet bi-annually instead of on a month-to-month basis. Having the meetings correlate with the Forward Sheridan meetings was another possibility that the board addressed. No action was taken on either topic of discussion.

Ugh!

This thread sure has gone to the dogs.

next

Next we will be comparing sheridan crime stats to detroits! Of course the chief of police has his gun but the chief in detriot has more than one bullet.

Why do we have to hurl

Why do we have to hurl childish insults at the police chief?

So does that mean that only

So does that mean that only males count as humans? By not including whether your grandmother etc. was from Sheridan you are implying they either don't exist, are not important, etc.

I know...

I know its always those darn outsiders

Considering that the local

Considering that the local goverment is made up of nothing but out of town move ins,your position that you have to be from here is flimsy at best.

The sheridan press just did an article on Forward Sheridan.It appears that Forward Sheridan really isn't interested in any business being brought here that might employ people in jobs.

Basically it looks like Forward sheridans real specialty is drawing $100,000.00 from the tax payer to avoid doing anything.

Tom Sachse who moved here from out of town,happens to be married to the person that our wonderful mayor hired to answer a complaint phone line at a salary of $62,000.00 a year and then of course it was discovered that she had two assistants that were being paid to actually answer her phone for $26,000.00 a piece.

I saw an article that our

I saw an article that our new police chief from Detriot lost his gun. I'll stay with Sheridan natives any day.

LOL!

That's right. Sheridan natives never find themselves on the wrong side of the law.

I guess I have to give here,

I guess I have to give here, plenty of Sheridan Natives have been on the wrong side of the law.

I think the character of the

I think the character of the person is much more important than where they were born or where they have lived. Bad seeds can grow anywhere. It's foolish to automatically trust someone just because they were born here or automatically distrust someone just because they weren't.

No it's the exact opposite

No it's the exact opposite here in sheridan.Place all kinds of trust and authority upon people from outside and try to claim nobody from here has the expertise to fill the position.

Of course I agree everyone

Of course I agree everyone should be judged by their actions.... I guess what I was mostly getting at is I don't appreciete those who move here, and right away know we are all a bunch of hillbillies and backwards, and have a better way for us to do things. I guess that is an action and an attitude that some take.

That road goes both ways

..and that road goes both ways. There are those who automatically assume that someone who moves from "the big city" is going to try to push Sheridan in that direction. The truth is that most people move here because they DON'T like the way things are in the big city.

Nothing solidifies the inbred hillbilly stereotype more than asinine comments like "if ya ain't born here ya ain't welcome."

No steve it's more along the lines of "Sheridan doesn't need your ideas or methods that failed you in the last place you moved from".

Move ins are always easily spotted by their insistance on making things just as bad as the last place they lived.Which of course is why they moved.

KLW: "Move ins are always

KLW: "Move ins are always easily spotted by their insistance on making things just as bad as the last place they lived.Which of course is why they moved."

Exactly as I said: "There are those who automatically assume that someone who moves from "the big city" is going to try to push Sheridan in that direction."

And nothing solidifies me

And nothing solidifies me more than someone talking about hearing the theme from "Deliverance" as they walk down main. Personallly I think in general things are pretty good here (no not perfect) and if someone is that repulsed by our communiy, well I90 goes north and south, and we have a functional airport.

This "moved here from out of

This "moved here from out of town" stuff cracks me up, especially since "our wonderful mayor" was born and raised in Sheridan. But, because he moved away for a while and then came back, he is now an "out of town move in."

How far back can we on your family tree before we find one of those dreaded foreigners? Probably not very far.

Ya got a point there. I'm

Ya got a point there. I'm not sure how he keeps getting reelected, a lot of secret admirers I guess.

Dave Kinskey was born in

Dave Kinskey was born in Ohio.His old man bought the creamery here in sheridan in 1964.Dave loves more then anything to portray himself as Sheridans lost son.

Sheridan has always had a fixation with hiring and electing out of town people.Just what you need is somebody who ruined the last place they moved from,place them into a position where they can ruin sheridan and try to make it just like where they came from and couldn't wait to leave....

You are correct. He was not

You are correct. He was not born here but he did grow up here. I was not born here, but my family moved here when I was still in grade school and I definitely consider this to be my hometown. Now that we have established this, how about your history? How far back can we go on your family tree before we find someone who wasn't born here?

Three generations

Three generations Steve.Sheridan wasn't even a city or county yet.

Three generations without a

Three generations without a single out-of-towner?

That means:

1 - Both of your parents were born in Sheridan
2 - All four of your grandparents were also born in Sheridan
3 - All eight of your great grandparents were also born in Sheridan

That's the only way you could go back three generations without finding someone from out of town.

Sorry, I'm not buying it.

Could care less wether you

Could care less wether you buy it or not steve.My Grandfather was born in sheridan,my father was born in sheridan and I was born in sheridan.

Still doesn't change the fact that sheridan has a track record of placing out of town people with checkered backgrounds,into key positions and then wondering why the results are less then stellar.Kinskey being but one of these examples.

So in other words you can't

So in other words you can't even go back one generation because your mother was from out of town.

In typical RJones fashion you are lumping disparate things together as if they have some relevance. Hiring people from out of town isn't a problem. Hiring people with questionable backgrounds is. However, one does not automatically come with the other.

Couldn't comment on this

Couldn't comment on this Rjones you mention steve,sounds like some kind of conspiracy thing your making up.

I do agree,there is a larger amount of move ins with questionable backgrounds then there are residents with same problemed backgrounds.

Perhaps one factor is the

Perhaps one factor is the shorter resume' of someone who has never left town. It's hard to have a questionable background if you don't have much of a background to begin with.

However, I don't deny that there is truth in what you've said. Most of us have seen the damaging effect of someone who blows into town thinking they're going to show us ignorant folk how it's done. Whether they are hiding from their past or genuinely trying to do something good, that know-it-all attitude often does more harm than good.

On the other hand, I have also worked with people who contribute positively to the group by bringing useful outside experience to the table.

The important thing is the character of the person, not where they've lived. It's certainly not fair to prejudge someone just because they haven't been under the Sheridan microscope their whole life.

I find the "sheridan

I find the "sheridan microscope" comment interesting,not that it applies to you steve.That comment is usually thrown out by individuals who have moved to sheridan and haven't been able to ingratiate themselves into every aspect of social life or better themselves economically.Of course it's never that individuals fault,it's always the "Sheridan cliche" or "good ol'boy club" keeping them out.

On the subject of shorter resume',what really hinders an honest local resident from being eligible for many of the city or county goverment jobs,is being too honest.A local who has no intention of moving away or burning bridges has to much of a conscience to go along with things such as fee increases or say Bridgecreek PUD.On the other hand some move in that will move on in a couple years can be counted on to go along with whatever someone like Kinskey tells them to do.

I've lived here for 30

I've lived here for 30 years, and didn't inherit a ranch or business. I'm kinda surprised to hear how evil we are here. I came here as an 11 year old, yes sometimes people are guarded towards outsiders. But it's no wonder if the attitude you reflect is representative of them. I'm glad I live in this area, great place to do the things I like to do, lots of personal freedom, good schools, not much crime (at least I always feel safe), and a great place to raise kids. I think if our lifestyle and values don't appeal to you than perhaps you would be happier elsewhere.

interesting

What I have seen here is mostly some arrogant 30somethings who are in business because they inherited it from their parents or grandparents. They now have the business, law firm or ranch and think they are truely business people and grand leaders of our community. Actually they are spoiled brats who have never worked a day in their life.

First the people in this city would not support a business opend by an "outsider" because of the rudeness and fear of outsiders. To think that a business from the "outside" would come here is insane! It woudl not last a month. It is not how good your business plan might be but you first have to pass the ultimate question "are you from here??"
