The Sheridan Community Land Trust will be hosting the clean-up of local trails and parks virtually.

City and county officials have entered into an agreement to support the Sheridan area's air service.

In August 2019, Sheridan County and the Wyoming Department of Transportation (WYDOT) brought in SkyWest as the Sheridan County Airport's service provider. That's part of the state's capacity purchase agreement, and the bigger idea to bring more reliable air service across the state.

Update 3/18/20 at 3 p.m.: Sleeping Giant announced on its Facebook page Wednesday afternoon, March 18, that it will close.

"Due to new information and the most recent update from the Park County Health Officer, Sleeping Giant Ski Area has decided to suspend operations for the remainder of the season. This decision was not made lightly, but we must put the health of the community first. Please keep yourself and your loved ones safe. Thank you for your continued support, have an enjoyable summer and hope to see you next winter." 

As of this time Anteloppe Butte lifts remain open six days a week and all food operations are closed.

The Sheridan VA Medical Center will now be able to better address the needs of older veterans with mental health or age-related dementia challenges. That's thanks to its new geriatric behavioral health unit, which will be used to stabilize patients and allow them to return to their lives whether that's at home, assisted living center or other places of care.

On a cloudless February morning, Sheridan residents and visitors packed onto Broadway Street's sidewalks behind bright orange barricades that blocked a long ice path down the street. Skijoring Horses, riders and skiers, lined up around the start line at the north end of the road.

On the eastern edge of the Sheridan VA Medical Center campus sits a peaceful view over northern Sheridan. In the winter, the grass is dead and the mud is thick when there isn't any snow covering it. Along a path, there are signs marking a sacred circle.

On an unusually warm Saturday at the Antelope Butte Mountain Recreation Area, I'm on top of the ski hill located in the middle of the Bighorn Mountain Range between Greybull and Sheridan, where the elevation is 9,400 feet. An avid skier, I start down a powdery run with evergreens and big boulders surrounding me.

Destiny and Taylor are both 17 years old and from Rock Springs. In 2019 both attended a disciplinary school in Sheridan called the Wyoming Girls School. They say there are good parts of Wyoming, but difficult experiences are pushing them to leave. For our "Belonging" series, the two sat down to discuss how their experiences in and out of Rock Springs have shaped them and their ideas of community. Destiny starts the conversation off.

Sheridan residents have voted to uphold the new law that seeks to update the responsibilities of the city administrator.

Catherine Wheeler

For years, Sheridan has debated whether or not it should employ a city administrator to handle day-to-day operations for the city. In July, the City Council passed an ordinance that updates a previous law that established the job. That new law has been challenged by a citizen petition, bringing the city to a special election on the topic. Wyoming Public Radio's Bob Beck spoke with Northeast reporter Catherine Wheeler to learn more about the election.

It's a fall morning in Sheridan as orange and yellow leaves are blowing around the streets. The sun is shining, there's a little chill in the air, and I'm out collecting garbage.

Solid waste operator Tony Trangmoe is taking me in his truck as he goes through his normal Friday collection route. He's driving through skinny alleys and his truck is picking up giant trash cans with a mechanical arm and dumping the contents in to be smashed and hauled away to the landfill.
