Republican Jillian Balow and Democrat Mike Ceballos each say they have the right background and leadership skills to stabilize the department and lead Wyoming’s educational system forward. “We need to heal a pretty broken system and a broken Department of Education, and we need to move education forward,” Balow said. “What we’re just lacking is that ability to step in and really lead and help people understand and get them involved,” Ceballos said. It’s the most competitive of five statewide positions up for election this year. The others are governor, secretary of state, auditor and treasurer. Hill’s tenure featured a bitter fight with the Republicandominated Legislature and GOP Gov. Matt Mead over her administration of the Department of Education. The Legislature and Mead enacted a law in 2013 removing Hill from the agency, but the law was overturned by a divided state Supreme Court as unconstitutional. Hill then challenged Mead for governor, but she finished a distant third in the primary. Balow is a former teacher who now works as an administrator with the Department of Family Services. “So I certainly have that experience and depth of understanding of both education, leadership and government,” she said.

Holy Name to host Remembrance Mass for All Saints’ Day BY ALISA BRANTZ THE SHERIDAN PRESS SHERIDAN — In the Western secular world, Halloween — a time for costumes and candy — is over, but in much of the religious world All Hallows’ Eve, or Hallowe’en for short, is just the beginning of the celebration. Today is the Solemnity of All Saints or All Saints’ Day, a holy day of obligation and a day of feast recognized by the Catholic Church and parts of Western Christianity on Nov. 1 celebrating all saints, known and unknown. In England, saints and holy people are called "hallowed" and the evening (e’en for short) before All Saints Day used to serve as a day of fast before the feast, though this observance is no longer required. In the Roman Catholic Church, Nov. 2 is All Souls' Day, which specifically commemorates the departed who have not yet been purified and reached heaven. Catholics celebrate All Saints' Day and All Souls' Day in the belief that there is a spiritual communion between those who have died and are either being purified in purgatory or are in heaven and the living. Other Christian traditions remember the saints in different ways. According to Trinity Communications, a nonprofit organization that operates CatholicCulture.org, the exact origins of this celebration are uncertain, although, after the legalization of Christianity in A.D. 313, a common commemoration of the saints, especially the martyrs, appeared in various areas throughout the church. The designation of Nov. 1 as the feast of All Saints occurred over time. According to some accounts, Pope Gregory III (731-741) dedicated an oratory in the original St. Peter's Basilica in honor of all the saints on Nov. 1, but according to early Church historian, John Beleth, it was Pope Gregory IV (827-844) who officially declared Nov. 1 the feast of All Saints. Some may question how a religious celebration of saints could have ties to a holiday often linked with paganism, Halloween. In Celtic tradition, Oct. 31 was a time of pagan sacrifice when Samhain, the Celtic lord of death, allowed the soils of the dead to return to earth to harm the people who had wronged them in life. To protect themselves from the spirits, the Druids burned sacrifices in a large bonfire while wearing animal heads and skins. Other groups of origin throughout time and history have developed their own lore with the celebration. With the spread of Christianity and the establishment of All Saints Day, some of these pagan customs remained in the English-speaking world for All Hallows Eve, forming Halloween as we know it today. However, Trinity Communications states that both the feast of All Saints and the feast of All Souls evolved in the life of the church independently of paganism and Halloween, linked by Oct. 31 being recognized as the last day of summer. All Saints’ Day, they say, was deemed necessary and appropriate after a time when the number of martyrs became too numerous too fast for a day in honor of each one. During the persecution of Emperor Diocletion (284-305) many martyrs died in groups and a common feast day for all saints and martyrs was attested to in sermons as early as 373. Today, many churches celebrate the day not just by honoring all saints and martyrs, but also remembering loved one who have passed and praying for the direction of their own souls. Locally, Holy Name Catholic Church celebrates All Saints’ Day with a Remembrance Mass intended to also honor recently deceased parishioners and relatives. All members of the community are invited to attend at 11 a.m. today at 260 E. Loucks St. POSTMASTER: Send address changes to The Sheridan Press, P.O. Box 2006, Sheridan, WY 82801.

Growing up, I had my mother, father, brother and dog. In college, I always had a roommate — some good, some bad. After college, I moved to Sheridan and found a roommate so that I could afford rent. I got lucky; she was a Sheridan native so I got to meet a lot of people and be involved right from the start. Her and I had different styles. I’m kind of a neat freak, she’s more of a free spirit. We both had dogs, though, who liked to get into trouble from time to time. They once chewed up an entire couch, an iPod and a door frame. But, we both cleaned up their messes. Then I EDITOR’S moved in COLUMN with the | man who is now my Kristen Czaban husband. Shortly after we moved in together, he left to spend six months in Antarctica. (I know what you’re thinking, but no, I’m not that awful of a roommate). During those six months, the house was virtually spotless. I cleaned every weekend, always put clothes and dishes away. Clutter like mail and various papers were also kept to a minimum. Clutter and messes tend to stress me out. Then he got back from his time on the ice. Never having lived with a guy before, it took some getting used to. Dirty boots, ash-ridden clothes and towels — my neat-freak alarm sometimes sounded on high alert. Married now for two years (as of Monday), we’ve settled into our routines. For example, he’ll wash every dish in the house, but he never puts them away. So each day at lunch, I unpack our dish rack and stuff plates, cups and silverware back into their proper places. Laundry, though, is sometimes a struggle. Neither one of us minds starting it, but we’re not a big fan of folding it or putting it away. Living with people can be interesting — no matter if you’re married or just friends sharing a crash pad. The quirks of any given person only come out when you see them in their various forms of dress, readiness for the world and cleanliness. Nobody is perfect, but those quirks are what makes us who we are. Just like Robin Williams (one of my favorite actors) once said, “People call these things imperfections, but there not. Ah, that's the good stuff.” Here’s to many more years of “the good stuff.” THE SHERIDAN Press Stephen Woody Publisher Kristen Czaban Managing Editor Phillip Ashley Marketing Director Becky Martini Office Manager Mark Blumenshine Production Manager SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2014 SHERIDAN PRESS EDITORIAL | Exercise your right, judgement Tuesday at the polls I seeking your support.

I A referendum on competence s this election really about nothing? Democrats might like to think so, but it's not. First, like all U.S. elections, it's about the economy. The effect of the weakest recovery in two generations is reflected in President Obama's 13-point underwater ratings for his handling of the economy. Moreover, here is a president who proclaims the reduction of inequality to be the great cause of his administration. Yet it has radically worsened in his six years. The 1 percent are doing splendidly in the Fed-fueled stock market, even as median income has fallCHARLES en. KRAUTHAMMER Second is the question | of competence. The list of disasters is long, highlighted by the Obamacare rollout, the Veterans Affairs scandal and the pratfalls of the once-lionized Secret Service. Beyond mere incompetence is government intrusiveness and corruption, as in the overreach of national security surveillance and IRS targeting of politically disfavored advocacy groups. Ebola has crystallized the collapse of trust in state authorities. The overstated assurances, the ever-changing protocols, the startling contradictions — the Army quarantines soldiers returning from West Africa while the White House denounces governors who did precisely the same with returning health care workers — have undermined government in general, this government in particular. Obama's clumsy attempt to restore confidence by appointing an Ebola czar has turned farcical.

Ebola after having traversed significant parts of New York City between his return and his infection — the czar essentially disappeared. Perhaps he is practicing self-quarantine. But there's a third factor contributing to the nation's deepening anxiety — a sense of helplessness and confusion abroad as, in the delicate phrase of our secretary of defense, "the world is exploding all over." Most voters don't care about the details of Ukraine, the factions in Libya or the precise battle lines of the Islamic State. But they do have a palpable sense of American weakness. This was brought home most profoundly by the videotaped beheadings of James Foley and Steven Sotloff. It wasn't just the savagery that affected so many Americans but the contempt shown by these savages for America — its power, its resolve. Here is a JV team (Obama's erstwhile phrase) defying the world's great superpower, daring it to engage, confident that America will fail or flee. Obama got a ratings bump when he finally bestirred himself to order airstrikes and vowed to "degrade and ultimately destroy" the Islamic State. Yet almost two months later, there is a realization that the disorganized, halfhearted, ad hoc U.S. reaction has made little difference. The vaunted 60-country coalition is nowhere to be seen. The barbarians are even closer to the gate. Moreover, U.S. flailing is not just demoralizing at home. It is energizing the very worst people abroad. Being perceived as what Osama bin Laden called the "strong horse" is, for a messianic movement on the march, the ultimate recruiting tool. Will this affect the election? While there is widespread dissatisfaction with the administration's handling of the Islamic State, in most races it has not risen to the level of major campaign issue. Its principal effect is to reinforce an underlying, pre-existing sense of drift and disarray. The anemic economy, the revulsion with governmental incompetence and the sense of national decline are, taken together, exacting a heavy toll on Democratic candidates. After all, they represent not just the party now in government but the party of government. This portends a bad night for Democrats on Tuesday. State-by-state polls show continued Democratic control of the Senate to be highly tenuous. With one caveat. Democrats could make it up with the so-called ground game (i.e., getting out the vote on Election Day) that polls do not measure. Just a fraction of the unprecedented success the Democrats enjoyed in 2012 in identifying and turning out their voters (especially young, female and minority) could shift the results by one or two points. That, in turn, could tilt several of the knife-edge, margin-of-error Senate races in their favor and transform what would otherwise be a Republican sweep into something of a stalemate. This could happen. More likely, however, is that the ground-game differential is minor, in which case the current disenchantment — with disorder and diminishment — simply overwhelms the governing Democrats. The stage is set for a major Republican victory. If they cannot pull it off under conditions so politically favorable, perhaps they might consider looking for another line of work.

Or I’ll replace the interrogative, “seriously?” with “cereal?” My friends say they frequently have to consult the Amy Dictionary to translate. You can become fluent pretty quickly though. Ok, so back to pronoia. If you’ve spent any time reading this column, you know that I am a relentless optimist so suffering from (or reveling in) pronoia is pretty easy for me. It’s those whose usual attitude is that the world hates them who make for the best viewing when succumbing to pronoia. Instead of heading down the spiral of negativity and gloom, those who have a case of pronoia (even early onset) will take a deep breath, reframe and say out loud, “This isn’t that bad. It could be so much worse. I am going to consider this a growth experience.” You can’t help but do a double take. Associating with Pronoids (I’m thinking of having satin jackets made for members) is mood-altering. They don’t allow you to wallowor whine (at least not for long). They find the bright side. Pronoids cheerlead and Taxes and pennies; it’s all relative encourage. It’s why this condition is so contagious — when you’re being relentlessly attacked by positivity, it wears down your negative defenses, causes spontaneous snickering and results in rueful smiles. Don’t think you could ever be a candidate for a pronoia transplant? Think again. It’s all about quarantining yourself with those who share the malady you seek. Instead of being a prepper for something that’s going to drive you to an underground bunker of fear, be a prepper for pronoia. Load in large supplies of jokes, fun, inspiration, hilarity and nuttiness. Spend extra for the high quality laughter. It’s worth it. Extend the invite to those who will bring their own super size boxes and bags of silly. Spread this epidemic. Because what if — gasp! — they’re right? What if the universe and its inhabitants really are conspiring to make you happy? Best you be ready for it. AMY ALBRECHT is the executive director of the Center for a Vital Community. Re: $100 gees goes a long way For the fifth penny, Optional One-Cent Sales tax, to cost me a $1,000 per year, I believe I would have to spend $100,000 on taxable items. If I had $100,000 a year to spend on those taxable items, I would be more than happy to spend $1,000 of it on taxes! Also, as it has been pointed out many times, all of the fifth penny comes back to Sheridan County, unlike the first four pennies. Dennis Wagner Dayton TRENDING ON THE WEB | thesheridanpress.com 1.

Bob and I M were 28 and 29 years old. Raw threats from the former attorney general, the official closest to Nixon, was not normal in the course of business as we knew it. ... Ben didn’t miss a beat. He was not just cool, but ‘hey this is a great story, get it in the paper fast.’ — Former Washington Post journalist Carl Bernstein remembering Bradlee’s leadership of the newspaper’s Watergate coverage. “He was a journalistic warrior, unequaled and probably never to be matched. He had the courage of an army, a lion in all seasons. He wanted his newspaper to be like the Navy destroyer he served on in World War II. ... Not chronologically but psychologically, Ben’s passing is in some respects and in some very clear ways marks the end of the 20th century. He is gone, and for that we are diminished, and the world is smaller. I will never forget the leadership and the smile of this man we loved so much.” — Bob Woodward, now an associate editor at The Washington Post. Fortify yourself for Tuesday’s election returns ix a pitcher of martinis Tuesday evening to fortify yourself against the torrent of election returns painting a pointillist portrait of the nation's mind. Before you become too mellow to care, consider some indexes of our civic tendencies. Voting began, and "persuasion campaigning" receded, weeks ago. Mobilization measures became more important than ads. Saturation spending on ads makes for a steep decline in the utility of the last dollars spent on them. In the 2012 presidential race, $46 million was spent on 56,837 ads in Las Vegas; $30 million was spent on 39,259 in Columbus, Ohio. Ads become audible wallpaper, there but not really noticed. Future campaign money may increasingly be spent on the expensive, because GEORGE labor-intensive, business of identifying WILL and prodding to the polls likely supporters. Tammany Hall did this 150 years | ago, although its infantry did not carry smartphones with apps sending data about voters to the campaigns. In midterm elections, turnout usually is "frail and pale," meaning older and whiter than in presidential elections, when three Democratic-leaning constituencies — minorities, young people and unmarried women — are more apt to vote. If Democratic candidates run ahead of their endof-campaign polls, this will indicate that their party retains its mobilization advantage. If Republicans narrowly win Senate control, their joy should be tempered by this fact: In 2016, they will be defending 24 of the 34 seats at issue. These will include three in states that are among the 18 that have voted Democratic in at least six consecutive presidential elections. These Republican seats are Pat Toomey's in Pennsylvania, Ron Johnson's in Wisconsin and Mark Kirk's in Illinois. Because Senate control is at issue, insufficient attention has been paid to 2014's most important election, which is in the worst-governed state. Illinois' incumbent governor is Pat Quinn, a compliant time-server who floated up from lieutenant governor when Rod Blagojevich became the fourth of the previous nine governors to be imprisoned. The state has high unemployment, low growth and more than $100 billion in unfunded pension liabilities. If voters ratify the state's trajectory by re-electing Quinn, he will accelerate the downward spiral by continuing policies that have produced it, beginning by making permanent the "temporary" tax increases. Republicans will win if their candidate, businessman Bruce Rauner, wins and delivers, among other things, a campaign to term limit the state legislators who, collaborating with government employees unions, buy job permanence using money looted from taxpayers. Republicans also will win if Quinn wins, thereby making Illinois a scary example to the nation of the terrible toll taken by the "blue model" of governance. Although U.S. law allows a one-party city like Detroit to go bankrupt, there is no provision for state bankruptcies. Hence a Quinn victory would provide, perhaps within his next term, hair-raising excitement for Illinois' masochistic electorate as lenders recoil from America's Argentina. Kansas' Republican governor Sam Brownback is in a close race with a Democrat who is severely critical of Brownback's tax cuts — but who does not say he would repeal them. Wisconsin's Republican governor Scott Walker is in a close race with a Democrat who is severely critical of Walker's limitations on government workers unions — but who does not say she would completely repeal them. Tuesday will tell if these unheroic straddles succeed. We govern through parties and this autumn President Obama's has repudiated him. Tuesday will supply evidence of not only how little pulse Obama's presidency still has, but how much damage he has done to his party. Before he led it to its 2010 debacle, it controlled 62 state legislative chambers to the Republicans' 36. Entering Tuesday Republicans led Democrats, 59-39. (Subtract two chambers because Nebraska's Legislature is unicameral and nonpartisan.) Can Democrats stop the hemorrhaging? Earnest improvers, eager to tightly wrap the regulatory state's tentacles around the democratic process, say the Republic is ruined because about $1 billion has been spent on ads in the 2014 cycle electing governors, senators and representatives. Considering the enormous consequences the political class has as it sloshes trillions of dollars hither and yon, it is strange that in selecting the 2015 members of this class Americans spent less than half the $2.2 billion they spent last month on Halloween candy. In this autumn of antic rhetoric, Hillary Clinton achieved almost sublime silliness: "Don't let anybody tell you ... it's corporations and businesses that create jobs." Her subsequent clarification was that this "short-handed" her economic thinking. We are going to need a lot more gin and vermouth. GEORGE F.

A6 THE SHERIDAN PRESS PAGE SIX www.thesheridanpress.com SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2014 HEALTH WATCH | TODAY IN HISTORY | From fin to fork FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A shopping guide for sheridan fish F ish is an excellent health choice for many reasons. It is 20-40 percent lower in calories than most beef and pork cuts, averages just as much protein, and is the best healthy animal source of conditionally essential fats docosohexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). These fats are commonly called omega-3 fats. Omega-3 is a very difficult nutrient to get in the typical Sheridan diet. In fact, for the past five years teaching nutrition at Sheridan College and reviewing over 240 student intakes of this nutrient, I saw very few diets that actually met the recommendations without supplements. The adult USDA suggested average daily intake of omega-3 is 1.6 grams for males and 1.1 grams a day for females. This is roughly the amount GEORGIA in 3 ounces of wild BOLEY Alaskan salmon (3 ounces is the size of a | deck of cards), or 6 ounces of wild caught rainbow trout. Though the standard recommendations are to have 4 ounces of fish two times a week, you can see that this only puts a dent in meeting your average daily needs. Many people reach for supplements to assure this nutrient is met. By increasing certain plant foods, you can also greatly increase your average omega-3 intake. Considering we are land-locked, our grocery stores are full of an amazing fresh, frozen and canned fish selection. All these choices can be difficult to navigate, especially when following all the cautionary ‘fish tails’ like mercury and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB) contaminate exposure, and the need to support sustainable fishing practices. To help Sheridanites put the best fish on their plate, I made a top five fish list. The choices are based on omega-3 content, contamination ratings, sustainable fishing practices and affordability. Resources used include the USDA nutrient database, Environmental Working Group (EWG), The Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch app, Wyoming Game and Fish and Sheridan grocery store prices. Top five fish list 1. Anything locally caught, (except bottom feeders like carp and Walleye out of Big Horn Reservoir greater than 15 inches) especially rainbow trout: This is the freshest choice and requires the bonus of outdoor exercise to get it. Price: I like to think of the $24 a year fishing license and tackle as an investment. 2. Pacific sardines packed in water or olive oil: For some great sardine recipes, check out www.chow.com. Price: 0.80 cents for 3 ounces. 3. U.S. rainbow trout (farmed): EWG rated farmed rainbow trout as a ‘Best Choice’ because it typically has higher omega-3 content than wild caught and has a low contaminate rating. Monterey Bay’s Health Watch rates it as a ‘Best Choice’ because it’s farmed in an ecologically sustainable way. Price: $1.12 for 3 ounces. 4. Canned wild Alaska salmon: Though fresh frozen is also just as great, it is not as affordable. Both are rated ‘Best Choice’ by EWG and Health Watch. Price: $1.50 for 3 ounces canned, $1.69 for 3 ounces fresh frozen. 5. Farmed mussels (not trawled) – EWG and Health Watch both consider farmed mussels a ‘Best Choice.’ Price: $0.75 cents for 3 ounces (weight includes shell).

Fifth St. Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 1, 1950, two Puerto Rican nationalists tried to force their way into Blair House in Washington, D.C. to assassinate President Harry S. Truman. The attempt failed, and one of the pair was killed, along with a White House police officer. On this date: In 1512, Michelangelo finished painting the ceiling of the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel. In 1765, the Stamp Act went into effect, prompting stiff resistance from American colonists. In 1861, during the Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln named Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan General-in-Chief of the Union armies, succeeding Lt. Gen. Winfield Scott. In 1870, the United States Weather Bureau made its first meteorological observations. In 1936, in a speech in Milan, Italy, Benito Mussolini described the alliance between his country and Nazi Germany as an “axis” running between Rome and Berlin. In 1944, “Harvey,” a comedy by Mary Chase about a man and his friend, an invisible six-foot-tall rabbit, opened on Broadway. In 1949, an Eastern Airlines DC-4 collided in midair with a Lockheed P-38 fighter plane near Washington National Airport, killing all 55 people aboard the DC-4 and seriously injuring the pilot of the P-38. In 1952, the United States exploded the first hydrogen bomb, code-named “Ivy Mike,” at Enewetak Atoll in the Marshall Islands. In 1968, the Motion Picture Association of America unveiled its new voluntary film rating system: G for general, M for mature (later changed to GP, then PG), R for restricted and X (later changed to NC-17) for adults only. In 1973, following the “Saturday Night Massacre,” Acting Attorney General Robert H. Bork appointed Leon Jaworski to be the new Watergate special prosecutor, succeeding Archibald Cox. In 1979, former first lady Mamie Eisenhower died in Washington, D.C. at age 82. In 1989, East Germany reopened its border with Czechoslovakia, prompting tens of thousands of refugees to flee to the West. Ten years ago: Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean stirred controversy within his party by telling the Des Moines Register he wanted to be “the candidate for guys with Confederate flags in their pickup trucks.” (The former Vermont governor explained that he intended to encourage the return of Southern voters who had abandoned the Democrats for decades but were disaffected with the Republicans.) Five years ago: Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain plunged through the final weekend of their marathon race for the White House; McCain poked fun at his campaign’s financial shortcomings and his reputation as a political maverick in an appearance on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live.” Machinists union members ratified a new contract with The Boeing Co., ending an eight-week strike. One year ago: President Barack Obama returned to the campaign trail, after canceling campaign appearances to focus on Superstorm Sandy. Motorists in the New York City area and in New Jersey faced a second day of enormous lines at gas stations; many stations were still shut down in the aftermath of the storm because they didn’t have gasoline or were without power to run the pumps. Five days before the election, figures were released showing that new unemployment claims were down, worker productivity was up, auto sales and retail sales were rising and consumer confidence was at the highest level since a year before Obama took office.

(AP) — A church youth leader has been barred from volunteering at a Salem public school after a student said he was promoting Christianity and insulted her for being an atheist. The principal at Straub Middle School, Laura Perez, said that Tim Saffeels will not be allowed back as a volunteer for the remainder of the school year, the Salem Statesman Journal reported Friday. Saffeels, director of student ministries at Salem Heights Church, said students initiated a conversation about religion, but he denied insulting the student who complained about an Oct. 23 lunch conversation. Eighth-grader Shelby Conway said in an email that Saffeels asked students for their religious beliefs and, when she said she is an atheist, told her that atheism is “wrong,” ‘’bad,” ‘’stupid” and “evil.” Perez said that violates school policy, which prohibits visitors from “promotion or inhibition of religion in any form ...” “I decided that I’m not going to allow him in because to me there was a breach of trust there,” Perez said. Volunteers supervise students during lunch and serve as role models. They make sure students are picking up after themselves, Perez said. The student said she was “very uncomfortable and personally offended with the way he was speaking to both me and other non-Christians around the lunch room.” Saffeels said he sat down at a table with a student from the church when students started asking about religion. “I wasn’t in any way trying to force any of those things,” Saffeels said. “They actually did literally ask me ‘Who is Jesus?’ “ He denied making the comments Conway attributed to him about atheism. Perez said she that after the current school year, she would revisit whether to allow Saffeels back into Straub. Jury rules for ex-university official in lawsuit SCRANTON, Pa. (AP) — A former state university administrator in northeastern Pennsylvania is not guilty of allegations that he sexually harassed or assaulted students, a jury ruled Friday. The verdict in the federal civil rights trial was issued in favor of Isaac Sanders, the former vice president of advancement at East Stroudsburg University. The Pocono Record said Sanders’ lawyer reported that he was elated and considers it the first step toward vindicating his reputation. Sanders was not in the courtroom when the verdict was announced. “A lot of terrible, terrible things have been written about Dr. Sanders. Rumors, gossip, whispers have been circulated and printed, but when the time came for these accusers to prove their allegations, they failed,” said the lawyer, Harry Coleman. “Dr. Sanders, through the jury’s verdict, has been vindicated, and a lot of people owe Dr. Sanders an apology.” Three former university students claimed Sanders offered them campus jobs and paid some of their tuition in order to groom them for sexual advances. They alleged he groped them, and one said Sanders forced the student to perform oral sex on several occasions. Sanders was never charged with a crime, but the school fired him in 2008. The lawsuit followed a year later. The newspaper reported that the three plaintiffs were consoled after the verdict by friends outside the courtroom. They had alleged Sanders was a predator who targeted emotionally fragile young black men.

Family spokesman Jonathan Franks told The Associated Press on Friday that the judge decided to release retired Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. Franks said the judge released him without making a determination on the charge against him. The 26-year-old Florida man said he got lost on a California freeway ramp that sent him across the border with no way to turn back. His long detention brought calls for his freedom from U.S. politicians, veterans groups and social media campaigns. Mexico says he broke the law. His lawyer argued the judge should order his release on humanitarian grounds because Mexico has no experience in treating post-traumatic stress. Lake Michigan waves slam Chicago lakeshore CHICAGO (AP) — Winds gusting up to 65 mph caused Lake Michigan waves to slam into the Chicago shoreline, sending water onto part of Lake Shore Drive. The waves slowed traffic and prompted the cancellation of a Halloween attraction. Parts of the scenic highway were flooded Friday, leading to some lane closures. Traffic was backed up for miles. The high waves prompted Navy Pier, one of Chicago’s top tourist attractions, to close its eastern end. Navy Pier officials also canceled a haunted house that’s located on a barge. Officials say the attraction will reopen Saturday. The National Weather Service issued a lakeshore flood advisory to remain in effect until 4 a.m. Saturday. The warning is forecasting winds of up to 50 mph and 23-foot waves.

Montana governor announces Ebola virus protocols HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montana Gov. Steve Bullock said Friday health officials will monitor people returning to the state from areas of West Africa affected by the Ebola virus and those who may have been in contact with an Ebola patient. “These new protocols will help ensure the safety of those potentially exposed to Ebola, and the safety of Montanans as a whole,” Bullock said in a news release. Currently five people in Montana are being monitored for the virus, said Tim Crowe, spokesman for the state’s Disaster and Emergency Services. Crowe said he couldn’t disclose where in Montana the five people live. Two others have completed the monitoring process with no signs of the virus, he said. The procedures include a twice-a-day review of symptoms for 21 days. Those being monitored must disclose their plans for work, travel or visiting public places to determine whether those activities will be allowed. The costs to the state for monitoring are minimal, and the money for the effort is coming from the Department of Public Health and Human Services’ budget, Crowe said. No automatic quarantines will be mandated in the state, Bullock’s spokesman, Mike Wessler, said. People infected with Ebola are not contagious until they have symptoms. The virus is not spread through casual contact. If anyone is found to have Ebola, full medical treatment would begin immediately, Crowe said. He said he couldn’t comment on whether anyone found to have the virus would be quarantined at that point, saying each case is individual. “If anyone should develop any symptoms, the health department will focus on patient safety, medical-provider safety and public safety throughout the course of treatment,” Crowe said. Governors in New Jersey and New York have been criticized for ordering mandatory quarantines for people arriving from West African countries where the outbreak has sickened more than 13,000 people and killed nearly 5,000. Earlier this month, Bullock appointed a team to coordinate Ebola-preparedness activities. It’s headed by Major General Matt Quinn, who oversees emergency preparedness for the state, and includes representatives from the Department of Public Health and Human Services, Montana Department of Environmental Quality, Montana Department of Transportation and the Governor’s Office of Indian Affairs. 2 arrested as people flock to Hawaii lava PAHOA, Hawaii (AP) — Two Hawaii residents have been arrested for trespassing to see lava, police said Friday amid growing interest from people eager to witness the slow-moving flow. Hawaii County police said officers saw a man and a woman on county property Thursday taking photos within 5 feet of the lava in the small town of Pahoa. The 65-year-old woman and 59-year-old man had two golf clubs that had been dipped in lava, which had hardened on the clubs, police said. They crossed private property to get to the spot where they watched the lava. Hawaii County Civil Defense Director Darryl Oliveira said the county is restricting the public’s access to the lava flow to keep people safe. “It’s unfortunate. We would hope we wouldn’t have to take steps to enforce the rules,” Oliveira told reporters. He said the lava is currently in people’s backyards. The county may be able to enable public viewing if and when it enters public land, he said.

In 1990, when lava poured into Kalapana on the Big Island’s southern coast, parked cars lined the roads and people crowded in to watch. Tourists and Big Island residents have been streaming into Pahoa for a glimpse of the lava since the flow edged closer to the town’s main road. The influx of people has been giving restaurants extra business. Glen Bousquet, a tree trimmer from the nearby community of Nanawale, said he hiked to the flow multiple times since the weekend and trespassed to do so. He followed the glow through 6-foot-tall grass, he said. “‘It’s so interesting to see nature unfolding. It’s like a once in a lifetime chance to actually see it up close and personal without having to wait for it to be on TV,” he said. “You kind of get the real deal.” Though he trespassed, he said he did so with “the utmost respect” and didn’t break any fences or otherwise harm anyone’s property. But he said won’t go back because he doesn’t want to get arrested. Josiah Hunt, of the coastal town of Kapoho, said he hiked to see the lava before it crossed Apaa Street, a country road on the edge of Pahoa last week. He wanted a look because the molten rock was affecting life in the town and the larger surrounding community of about 10,000 people. “Somehow it helped me to come to grips . and feel a sense of closure, to some degree,” he said. “It helps put an image to it in your mind’s eye.” He doesn’t think now is a good time to gather to see the lava because it’s threatening homes.

On the opening kickoff in the Broncs victory on Oct. 10, Dontae Crow handed the ball off to Joe Shassetz, who took the ball to the house for a touchdown. Last night, it was Shassetz handing the ball off to Crow, and it looked like Crow was going to mimic his teammate’s performance. As Crow tiptoed up the sideline in front of the Sheridan bench, he was sprinting away from any and all Central tacklers until a referee whistled the play dead, signaling Crow stepped out of bounds. “It was right in front of us,” head coach Don Julian said of the out-ofbounds call. “We didn’t think he stepped out of bounds.” It was the big plays that separated the Broncs from the Indians in their earlier matchup, but Crow’s almost-big play wasn’t enough to get Sheridan going early in Friday’s contest that ended in a 28-7 Bronc victory. Both teams started out slow. After the out-of-bounds call, the Broncs marched into Central territory, but an offensive facemask penalty forced them to punt. The punt was a sign of things to come, at least for the first half.

MIKE PRUDEN | THE SHERIDAN PRESS Lady Broncs move to No. 4 seed with win over Cheyenne South FROM STAFF REPORTS SHERIDAN — The Sheridan High School volleyball team got off to a slow start in their opening round matchup in the 4A East regional tournament Friday, but still only needed three sets to take down fifth-seeded Laramie. The Lady Broncs had trouble stretching their lead to open the match until a timeout by head coach Maureen McEwen sparked a big scoring run to win the first set. Hanging onto a 16-13 lead, the Lady Broncs came out of the timeout and went on a 9-1 run to closeout the set. Senior Megan Myers carried Sheridan through the scoring spectacle with a handful of kills to help her team win the set 25-14. Sheridan was unable to string together any long runs in the next two games, but they were able to pull it out in the end to escape with two close victories. The score was tied at 22 in the second set before a Dylan Wright spike gave the Lady Broncs the lead and forced a Laramie timeout. Sheridan came out of the timeout and was able to hold of the Plainsmen to win 25-23. The final set was similar to the second, with neither team extending their lead more than a few points until Sheridan ran away with the final three points of the match. Leading 22-21, Sheridan won the next two points before Robbi Ryan and Myers teamed up for a match winning block to advance the Lady Broncs to the second round of the tournament.

MIKE PRUDEN | THE SHERIDAN PRESS Big Horn Rams earn win against Lovell FROM STAFF REPORTS THE SHERIDAN PRESS JUSTIN SHEELY | THE SHERIDAN PRESS Big Horn Ram Seth Kite is tackled during the game Friday night at Big Horn. The Rams defeated Lovell 23-12. SHERIDAN — It was closer than most people expected, but the Big Horn Rams squeaked out a win against Lovell to advance in the 2A playoffs. In the Rams first-ever home playoff night game, it was a back-andforth battle for the 24 minutes of play before Big Horn was able to pull ahead in the second half. Lovell was only one of two teams to hold Big Horn under 30 points in the regular season, a 25-0 weekone Rams victory. The team’s defense proved to be even tougher last night, holding Big Horn to 16 first-half points. The Rams led 10-6 before a 51yard score put the Bulldogs on top 12-10. The Rams responded with a Kerry Powers touchdown with less than a minute left in the half to put the Rams on top again, this time for good. It took another 18 and a half minutes for either team to score, but it was a Christian Mayer touchdown that helped Big Horn secure the 23-12 victory and advance to a semifinal rematch with 7-2 Wheatland, the other team to hold Big Horn under 30 points this season. The Big Horn versus Wheatland matchup will be played at Big Horn High School next week, but the date and time has yet to be determined.

The No.-1 ranked team in the 1A West, topped the team from Dayton 55-0. “They were everything I thought they would be,” Eagles coach John Scott said about Cokeville Friday night. “We try to convey that to the kids throughout the week that it will take a giant effort to offset that, but Cokeville is physical, fast and really dominated us in every aspect of the game.” Scott added, though, that the game wasn’t all bad news for his young squad. Players at all levels hung in there, he said. “We didn’t concede anything,” Scott said. “What they got, they got by going over top of us.” Dayton will graduate five seniors this year, but Scott said that his young players got to see first-hand what a championship team looks like. He noted that his team got better preparing for the game. “The next step is to continue to build on what we’ve done and develop physically and mentally,” Scott said. “If we can have a commitment to that, we’ll find ourselves getting better each year and going deeper into the playoffs.” The Eagles finish the season 5-4. HIGH SCHOOL VOLLEYBALL | FROM STAFF REPORTS Lady Rams head to regional championship game BIG HORN — The Lady Rams volleyball team won two matches Friday night to move into the 2A East regional championship game, set for 4 p.m. today. The Lady Rams will face Wright, a team that also earned two wins Friday. Big Horn topped Pine Bluffs in their first matchup of the evening, winning in three sets (25-12, 25-12, 25-16). “Our goal was to go in and take control right away, and the girls did a great job of doing that,” McLaughlin said Friday night. “We were ahead the whole game, and really dominated them at the end.” The coach noted that her team has been working on maintaining focus and intensity throughout the match, something that paid off in the team’s matchups Friday. In the second matchup of the evening, the Lady Rams faced a little better competition against Southeast. But, it wasn’t enough to keep Big Horn from winning in three sets (25-17, 25-19, 25-23). McLaughlin noted that Southeast is a scrappy team that hung with the Lady Rams the entire time. She said her team maintained its intensity in the first two sets, but lost a little focus in the third. “We made some critical errors and didn’t play our best defense, so they caught up,” McLaughlin said. “But we got our heads in the right place and we were able to put them away.” The Lady Rams will face Wright in the regional championship today at 4 p.m. in Torrington. Big Horn has lost to Wright three times this season, but each match has gotten closer. Just last week it took Wright five sets to put the Lady Rams away. Lady Eagles to battle in consolation bracket today DAYTON — The Tongue River Lady Eagles volleyball team opened the 2A East regional tournament with a four-set loss to Burns Friday night (25-11, 25-22, 25-22). Coach Michelle Nielsen said her team struggled to get started Friday, which resulted in the loss. “We had some good things happen, we just weren’t finishing our rallies,” Nielsen said. She noted that the Lady Eagles had a tough time getting started against Saratoga too, losing the first set before gaining some momentum through the next three. The scores of that match were 21-25, 25-17, 25-19, 2513. “They finally turned the coner and it was go time,” Nielsen said of her team’s ability to get going against Saratoga. “They knew it was now or never and defensively they really picked up.” She added that everyone contributed in the last three sets and it was a nice way to end the day. Top contributors for the day included Amanda Buller, who had 14 kills and went 22-22 in serving against Saratoga. Neci Sundquist contributed to the team’s success with 22 kills, while teammate LeeAnna Mitchell added 11 kills and two stuff blocks. Eryn Aksamit went 20-21 in serving against Saratoga and had six kills. Sarah Bacon helped out on defense with 10 digs for the day, and Maddie Boll chipped in with 34 assists. In the next round, the Lady Eagles will face Southeast today at 11 a.m. in Torrington. This will be the first time the teams have met this season. “We had a great talk tonight and they know what they have to do,” Nielsen said of her girls’ preparation for Saturday. Saratoga covers the net well, so Nielsen said the Lady Eagles will have to move and be strategic in placing the ball. “They are beatable, though,” Nielsen added. Lady Generals top Eastern in three sets Sheridan’s Courtney Smith, right, taps the ball over the net against Eastern Wyoming College during the game Friday in the Sheridan College Bruce Hoffman Golden Dome.

BRONCS: Head to Natrona for next round of playoffs FROM B1 Arvada-Clearmont drops two at 1A East regional tourney JUSTIN SHEELY | THE SHERIDAN PRESS The Sheridan defense forced a three-and-out and a Central punt on their first possession, and Central returned the favor. After the Sheridan punt, the two teams combined for seven more punts in the half, and the Broncs threw in an interception for good measure. Luckily for Sheridan, two big runs, the second a Riley Sessions 25-yarder, put the Broncs on the scoreboard first. Sheridan took a 7-0 lead into the locker room at halftime. “That’s more punts than we’ve punted for the year,” Julian joked of the first-half stat line. The big play that was missing in the first half finally came in the second half, and it put the game away for good. After Sessions added a 35-yard touchdown run, Central answered with a 46-yard pass to bring them within one score of the Broncs in the third quarter. Sheridan missed a 28-yard field goal but forced a punt on the next possession before their game-changing play. It was a short pass that Crow took 89 yards to the house to put the Broncs up two scores late in the game. Shassetz, who had an interception slip through his fingertips on the earlier Central touchdown, put the icing on the cake with a pick immediately following Crow’s score. The Broncs went on to win the game, 28-7. The win advances Sheridan to the quarterfinals, where they will face off in a rematch of top-seeded Natrona. The Mustangs beat Sheridan 24-0 in the regular season. “Here’s the deal, everybody in this whole community, in this whole school, in this whole town needs to believe that we can go do this,” Julian said of the rematch with Natrona. “If anybody doubts, it won’t happen. Our team’s not going to doubt; we’re going to go battle.” The Broncs will travel to Natrona for a Saturday matchup next week. The time has not yet been set. Basketball season is right around the corner. Compete and have fun with a reenergized league this year.

OZ & ROIZEN Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen MARY WORTH by Karen Moy and Joe Giella BORN LOSER® by Art and Chip Sansom GARFIELD by Jim Davis FRANK & ERNEST® by Bob Thaves Until recently, only 10 percent to 20 percent of people diagnosed with advanced melanoma -- the deadliest of skin cancers -- could expect to be alive in five years. Now, cutting-edge cancer drugs are unleashing the power of the human immune system against this and other toughto-treat cancers. In other words, these new drugs are allowing the immune system to do the job it was designed to do: protect us from harmful disease. These exciting, life-saving medicines are called checkpoint inhibitors (CIs). They outsmart cancer cells in a brand-new way. They take the blinders off the immune system so that it can recognize, attack and destroy cancer cells. One big reason that cancer gains a foothold in the body is that it's really good at hiding from the immune system. In fact, scientists recently reported that lung cancer has NINE ways of dodging attack! That happens because cancer cells often disguise their surfaces with proteins designed to show the immune system that the cell is healthy -- something your body's real healthy cells actually do to keep the immune system from attacking the wrong ones. Checkpoint inhibitors unmask the cancer cells so they can be KO'd. Just two CIs, ipilimumab (Yervoy) and pembrolizumab (Keytruda), are FDAapproved. In September, Health Canada approved its first CI, Yervoy, for skin cancer. In addition to treating melanoma, these cutting-edge drugs are producing exciting results in clinical trials against cancers of the lung, kidney, blood, colon, stomach, breast, bladder, head, neck and brain. Based on some early evidence, scientists are even speculating that CIs can help the immune system "remember" cancer cells, so it can fight them off in the future if they reappear. Cancer docs and researchers, usually cautious when talking about the potential of new treatments, are calling CIs "remarkable" and "a breakthrough." We're even more thrilled by what cancer survivors themselves have to say: "I did not expect to celebrate another birthday, Christmas or even experience another summer," says one melanoma survivor from Canada who received ipilimumab in a clinical trial. "This treatment didn't just save my life, it gave me my life back." In fact, CIs are so promising that this week the Cleveland Clinic put them into its list of the Top 10 Medical Innovations for 2015. (Dr. Mike helps lead the panel of experts that reviewed over 100 up-and-coming health technologies to find those that will have the biggest impact on health care -- and our lives -- in 2015.) These drugs don't work for everyone, and they can cause serious (though controllable) side effects, but they are effective for a large percentage of the population and are conveying astounding benefits. For skin cancer: CIs help some people with advanced melanoma, who typically live 6-18 months after diagnosis, live longer. When Dana Farber Cancer Institute researchers tracked 4,868 people with this cancer who received the CI ipilimumab, they found that 21 percent were still alive after three years, and 17 percent were still alive after seven years. In a study of the CI pembrolizumab, also used for treating melanoma, 69 percent of those receiving it were alive after one year. For kidney cancer: Still an experimental treatment, these drugs helped 65 percent of people with renal cell carcinomas live without any cancer progression for at least 24 weeks in one study. One in five responded to the drug, as did nearly one in two when it was combined with another checkpoint inhibitor. For lung cancer: Still in clinical trials, a number of CIs show promise against this killer cancer. So far, tumors in up to 25 percent of people with lung cancer respond to these drugs, but up to 71 percent get benefits when the CI is combined with conventional chemotherapy. Learn more: Checkpoint inhibitors are currently approved only for melanoma, but in clinical trials they are being tested against several other cancers. To find clinical trials for your cancer type or location, go to www.cancer.gov/clinicaltrials/search or search for clinical trials by drug type at www.clinicaltrials.gov. DEAR ABBY Pauline Phillips and Jeanne Phillips DEAR ABBY: For the past year and a half, I have worked a full-time and a parttime job while attending REX MORGAN, M.D. by Woody Wilson and Tony DiPreta ZITS® by Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman DILBERT by S. Adams ALLEY OOP® by Dave Graue and Jack Bender school. I recently graduated from college and now have a career that has put me into a better financial position. My problem is, I'm still working my part-time job. My boyfriend, "Jared," and I get into arguments over whether or not I should keep it. I enjoy the extra cash, but I'm starting to feel like life is passing me by because I'm working seven days a week, usually 10 hours a day. I am exhausted, but Jared doesn't want me to quit. Jared doesn't seem to understand that I feel left out when I work this much. I don't have time to see my family or visit friends, something I feel he takes for granted. Should I keep this job and keep Jared happy, or stand my ground and live life my way? -- EXHAUSTED IN IOWA DEAR EXHAUSTED: At the rate you're going, Jared will work you into a state of collapse. I could understand his not wanting you to quit your part-time job if the two of you were saving for something special, but because you didn't mention that, I am assuming it isn't the case. In order to have a happy, successful life, people need to achieve a balance between work and time to themselves. If Jared wants the extra income, then my view is that Jared should earn it.

Saki, a Scottish shortstory author who died in 1916, said, "I think she must have been very strictly brought up, she's so desperately anxious to do the wrong thing correctly." This week we have had a series of deals in which the bidding has not been either clear-cut or accurate. And on some, the opening lead has been weird. Here is one more in which the right final contract was not reached. How should the auction have gone? North might have rebid three clubs with such a strong suit and seven playing tricks. South's sensible two-diamond rebid was forcing for one round. Note Help Wanted Phillip Alder also that this guaranteed at least five spades and denied four hearts; with 5-4-4-0 distribution, he would have rebid two hearts -- we love majors and dislike minors. Then maybe North should have continued with two hearts (hoping partner could bid no-trump) or two no-trump (hoping it would not wrongside the contract). However, when North bid two spades, South should not have jumped to four spades. He should have bid three no-trump to offer a choice of games. Here, North would have passed, but if he had held three spades, he would have corrected back to four spades. As you will have seen, there are 10 top tricks in no-trump: one spade, two hearts, one diamond and six clubs. But four spades had no chance. And even if spades had been 3-3, careful defense could have defeated that game. Always try to keep your options open. And remember that partner will not forget your earlier bids and their meanings. Hints from Heloise Poster Painting Dear Heloise: When trying to decide what color we wanted to PAINT our walls, the small paint chips didn't help much. They are so small, and we didn't want to paint large swatches on the wall. Here is our hint: We bought large, white poster boards and painted each color we were thinking about. We pushpinned them on the walls and looked at them for a few days. -- K.J. in New Orleans Better to live with a few painted posters than paint a whole room and hate it! -Heloise MELTED PLASTIC Dear Heloise: I accidentally melted some plastic on the top of my toaster. Do you have any hints on how I can get the plastic off? -- Hal- SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2014 lie, via email Hallie, don't worry -- this happens. Get an old washcloth or towel and some rubbing alcohol or acetone-based nail-polish remover. Be sure the toaster is UNPLUGGED! Pour a little of the liquid onto the washcloth. Rub it over the area. You should start to see the plastic peel away. You may need to repeat to get it all off. When done, wipe the area with a clean, damp cloth. -- Heloise PET PAL Dear Readers: Claudia Parks of Texas sent in a photo, via email, of her 8year-old standard poodle, Sammy, posing for a photo in a hat. Claudia said that Sammy loves posing for photos. To see Sammy's photo, go to my website, www.Heloise.com, and click on "Pets." -- Heloise AFTER-SUMMER SALES Dear Heloise: I love endof-summer sales. You usually can find great deals on Heloise summer products right after school starts. I got an inflatable pool for the backyard for 70 percent off! I live in South Texas, so it is still warm enough to use it well into fall. You also can get great deals on barbecues and school supplies. I often go and buy crayons, etc., when they are on sale after school starts. -- Lisa M., Lubbock, Texas PESKY PIGEONS Dear Heloise: I live in New York City, where pigeons always are a problem. Recently, a neighbor put a bird feeder on her terrace, and we were "bombarded" with pigeons. I found a rubber snake and put it on the edge of the terrace barrier. Result: no more pigeons. -Fred Jacobs in New York Pigeons can be a problem, and many readers use fake snakes to keep the pigeons away. Since owls hunt birds, locate a few fake owls and use them to ward off the pigeons. -- Heloise WE ARE currently seeking vacuum truck drivers to join our team in Wyoming. We provide 24/7 service.

This is an excellent time to seek professional advice from experts. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Be a realist in your own reality show. Although you might fall prey to wishful thinking, you'll find your interests are best served by going along with the crowd. This is a good time to ask for favors or a loan extension. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Wear your true colors. You can be kind to your loved ones, but treat the world well, too. Feed a stray kitten, recycle grocery bags, or make a charitable dona- tion. Act on your ideals and do some good for Mother Earth. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A warm and friendly attitude will open doors. Press forward to achieve your career objectives and put your passions to work in moneymaking activities. Steer clear of controversial issues when in public. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): If you've been expecting the worst, you may be in for a pleasant surprise. A thorny situation may play out much differently than anticipated. This could be a good time to turn over a new leaf or launch a project. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): The advice you receive might be golden. Even a casual encounter could prove beneficial. You might read an article that answers a key question, or hear about a money making opportunity while waiting at the checkout counter. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Dress for success; the spotlight might be on you today. Other people will be drawn to your charm, friendliness and outgoing personality. Think hard and thoroughly about improving your finances or acquiring new possessions. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Radiate a positive attitude and you'll attract good people, things and opportunities. Know exactly what your goals are and who your friends are. A good friend could provide sound advice or encouragement. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Put plenty of purpose into your pleasures. You have the right instincts to succeed at anything that tickles your fancy. Investments and hard work could pay off and a romantic partner is yours for the asking. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Romance and socializing could be at the top of your personal agenda. You're more attractive than usual, but don't let your guard down or get caught up in inappropriate situations. Keep your career and love life separate. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A change of tactics can change outcomes. Share what you know and let yourself be known. Join a group, sign up for a class, or take an interest in community affairs. You can make new friends in the blink of an eye. IF NOVEMBER 3 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: You may be riding on a wave of inspiration during the upcoming 3-4 weeks. Since you might feel like the apple of someone's eye, or because you've gained the trust of someone powerful, it may be tempting to make a commitment when an offer or proposal is made. You can be fooled by appearances but have a knack for seeing the advantages and disadvantages. You might be wiser than usual now, as well as in December, so aren't likely to get in over your head. April is when you have the best chance of making the shrewdest financial and business decisions. 110114Legals_Layout 1 10/31/14 10:17 PM Page 1 YOUR ELECTED OFFICIALS | CITY John Heath Mayor 307-675-4223 Public Notices SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2014 www.thesheridanpress.com WHY PUBLIC NOTICES ARE IMPORTANT | Kristin Kelly Councilor 307-673-4751 Shelleen Smith Councilor 307-461-7082 Robert Webster Councilor 307-674-4206 Alex Lee Councilor 307-752-8804 Jesus Rios Councilor 307-461-9565 COUNTY Pete Carroll Treasurer 307-674-2520 Eda Thompson Clerk 307-674-2500 Nickie Arney Clerk of District Court 307-674-2960 John Fenn 4th Judicial District Court Judge 307-674-2960 Shelley Cundiff Sheridan County Circut Court Judge 307-674-2940 William Edelman 4th Judicial District Court Judge 307-674-2960 P.J.

Independent newspapers assist in this cause by carrying out their partnership with the people’s right to know through public notices. By offering an independent and archived record of public notices, newspapers foster a more trusting relationship between government and its citizens. Newspapers have the experience and expertise in publishing public notices and have done so since the Revolutionary War. Today, they remain an established, trustworthy and neutral source that ably transfers information between government and the people. Public notices are the lasting record of how the public’s resources are used and are presented in the most efficient and effective means possible.

Johnson was among 16 drivers who initially made the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. He’s already out of contention for his seventh season title even with three wins and 1,119 laps led this year. Fourtime race winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. also can’t win the title after the first two championship rounds cut the field to eight drivers. “It has seemed bizarre since the onset. I, though, feel that I need to take a different approach and think of it differently and think of what is good for the sport,” Johnson said Friday. “This is really being put back in the fans’ hands. At the end of the day, if there are more people tuning in and watching, we are creating the drama, sponsorship is in the sport, then it is what we need to do. I made that conscious decision when Brian France called me and told me where things were going for this year.” Among the eight drivers still in contention are Ryan Newman and Matt Kenseth, neither of whom has won a race this season. Newman, who has led only 41 laps all season, was in 16th place when the chase started — two spots ahead of Kenseth. After Texas and then Phoenix next week, only the top four drivers in the standings will be eligible to win the season title in the finale at Homestead. “I understand that from an economic standpoint (that) tracks, NASCAR, the race teams for sure, are in a bind and we are in a tough situation,” Johnson said. “So we need to make some change. “This is the decision they made and we have certainly seen the drama. It seems like attendance is going in the right way, ad buys are going the right way and TV viewership is up,” he said. “Is it what we all as racers think should happen and is it the best way to go about, falling back on the history of our sport in determining a champion? No, but we have to pay attention to who is sitting out in the stands, in my opinion.” MIKE PRUDEN | THE SHERIDAN PRESS Lady Broncs still in running at regional tournament Malia Smiley pushes the ball over the net Friday at Sheridan High School in the Lady Broncs’ win over Laramie.

UP NEXT Memphis visits Charlotte on Saturday. 49ers LB Willis to be game time decision SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Patrick Willis will be a game-time decision Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers host the St. Louis Rams. The playmaking linebacker missed the 49ers’ loss in Denver two weeks ago with a big toe injury. Willis, third on the team with 49 tackles, said he still feels pain but is getting better every day. “It’s all about being able to know how much pain you can endure and still perform,” Willis said Friday. “I won’t go out unless I know I can help the defense.” Willis does not suffer from turf toe, a severe injury that sidelined cornerback Tramaine Brock for five games and who remains questionable this week, but the injury does affect Willis every time he takes a step. “Over time, you understand the big toe is important for the body,” Willis said. “It’s not like a broken middle finger, which you can put a cast on and still go. My feet are everything.” The seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker is one of the reasons the 49ers remain in the upper echelon of the NFL in defensive rankings despite missing two key linebackers in the injured NaVarro Bowman and the suspended Aldon Smith. Rookie linebacker Chris Borland started in place of Willis against the Broncos and will fill the void again should Willis be unable to go. Rookie Aaron Lynch has also seen his playing time increase the past few weeks. “I can handle the pain, but this is a little more,” Willis said. “It’s taking a little time. I want to be at my peak any time I step on the field.” Willis spent the bye week receiving treatment for the injury at the 49ers’ headquar- ters. “At this point, the bye week is a chance to relax and get my mind back focused,” Willis said. “For me, that meant being here and getting better. We have great trainers here who are working to help me.” Rookie center Marcus Martin gets his opportunity to start against the Rams due to a season-ending injury to Daniel Kilgore. Martin will be making his NFL debut. “He’s sure of himself naturally, so he’s just being himself,” 49ers veteran left tackle Joe Staley said. “He’s been sharp and on top of it all year. He takes notes like an old veteran. His notebook is filled with details. He’s ready to get on the field.” The 49ers will be using their fifth starting combination along the offensive line after two years of relative stability. “Our guys have looked good,” 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said. “In terms of practice, they have improved noticeably.” Staley said it’s all part of doing business. “We have been very fortunate the past couple of years,” Staley said. “Injuries are part of the game and we adjust. I feel confident with the guys we play. We can always do better. We’ve done a lot of things well, but the whole thing is a process and we continue to improve.” NOTES: Harbaugh gave a visual in response to what makes WR Stevie Johnson elusive to defensive backs. “He’s got a shake, a wiggle. It’s different,” Harbaugh said while looking like he was poking his head around the corner while running in place. “If you see it enough and watch it, you can read the body language. That’s probably a good description: His body language being tough to read is an asset for him.” ... Willis and Brock are the only two listed as questionable for Sunday.
