The Sheridan Police Department issued a news release Monday, announcing that they'd arrested 29-year-old Anthony Deflavis and charged him with aggravated assault and battery in connection with a fight that happened on Dec. 19 at the Rail's Bar. During the altercation, the victim was cut with a knife and sustained laceration injuries to the face and neck.

Sheridan County School District 2 wants to withdraw from participation in SEEDA, which is the Sheridan Economic Educational Development Authority Joint Powers Board. School trustees have sent letters to the city of Sheridan and the Northern Wyoming Community College District asking them to approve the district's withdrawal.
The college board, which governs Sheridan College and campuses in Gillette and Johnson County, recently approved the school district's withdrawal. The city of Sheridan has not yet acted on the request. The economic and educational development authority was launched to create a workforce and economic development plan for Sheridan in which local education plays a role in helping local businesses and attracting new business and job opportunities.
