We begin our Week in Review series with a look back at some of the week's top stories. The Sheridan Police Department released the name of the driver who plowed through the Fifth Street track crossing and hit a moving train on Monday morning.
27 year-old Piece Ford, of Sheridan, is expected to appear in circuit court on July 9 to face citations of driving under the influence and failing to stop at a railroad crossing. He was treated at Sheridan Memorial Hospital after the crash.
A management council comprised of members from both the House and Senate will meet in July to address Wyoming House Speaker Tom Lubnau's request to investigate a report documenting alleged improprieties made by state superintendent of public instruction, Cindy Hill.
The MacPherson report highlights a number of concerns including the misuse of federal money, improper hiring and firing practices, incomplete accounting for how money was spent, nepotism and bizarre management practices by Hill and her top aides.
The have been grumblings of impeachment by some legislators as a consequence for Hill's alleged violations. Senator Bruce Burns is a member of the management council and says it would be a first in Wyoming.
Officials with Sheridan Memorial Hospital announced that construction on an urgent care facility is slated for July and with a preliminary start date of August 5, Sheridan will have a new urgent care option.
But Hospital CEO, Mike McCafferty, says there are still plenty of things that need to be done before the first urgent care patients can be seen. He says urgent care would be more appropriate for certain patients rather than the emergency room.
