B1 Wyoming lawmakers move to block cuts to sheep grazing CHEYENNE (AP) — Some Wyoming lawmakers are pushing to protect domestic sheep in the state from a possible federal effort to remove them from public lands. The U.S. Forest Service recently curtailed domestic sheep grazing on the Payette National Forest in Idaho to protect bighorn sheep from disease. The agency is developing a larger plan to consider whether it needs to curtail domestic sheep in Wyoming and other western states to reduce the JUSTIN SHEELY | THE SHERIDAN PRESS A display of whiskey is seen behind the bar in the former Warehouse 201 building. threat to bighorns. Domestic sheep producers in Idaho and elsewhere last year appealed the Forest Service’s decision to curtail grazing on the Payette National Forest to a federal appeals court in San Francisco. Wool growers’ associations in Wyoming, Colorado and Idaho have joined the fight. Amy Hendrickson, executive director of the Wyoming Wool Growers Association, said Thursday the prospect of coming feder- al cuts to grazing allotments has created great concern among sheep operators in the state. “It’s hard for a lot of our producers to make management decisions, decisions what to do, because they just don’t know whether they’re going to be able to graze or not,” Hendrickson said. SEE SHEEP, PAGE 2 Learning leadership through service So far, 5 applications received for liquor license BY HANNAH SHEELY THE SHERIDAN PRESS SHERIDAN — Today is the final day for advertising the availability of a $1,500 retail liquor license currently owned by the city. To date, five entities have applied for the license, and City Council will soon begin the process of reviewing applicants before choosing a buyer. Applications for the license are due by the end of the day Monday. There is a Council meeting Monday night, but City Clerk Scott Badley said the earliest the applications could be considered by the Council would be its Feb. 16 meeting since a public hearing regarding the applications will need to be advertised for two weeks, as required by state statute. Badley said once applications are received, the clerk’s office will review Badley them to make sure they are complete, send them to the Department of Revenue Liquor Division in Cheyenne for review, advertise the public hearings regarding the applications, give them to Council members for review and then place them on a future agenda for a public hearing and for Council discussion and action. City Council has wrestled with the best way to sell the retail liquor license since midSeptember. At that time, Lou’s, LLC, coowned by Luminous Brewhouse owner Cooley Butler and local business investor Robert Utter, applied for the license to be used in a proposed restaurant at 201 Broadway St. SEE LICENSE, PAGE 2 JUSTIN SHEELY | THE SHERIDAN PRESS Civil Air Patrol Cadet Staff Sgt. Nathaniel Lydic, left, does sit-ups for his physical test as Cadet Senior Airman Ryan Baum help him keep count Thursday evening at the Wyoming National Guard Armory in Sheridan. Civil Air Patrol provides experience, training for local youth BY ALISA BRANTZ THE SHERIDAN PRESS SHERIDAN — Whether your young one plans to enter the U.S. Air Force, wants to take to the skies for fun or to help people or just needs a little more leadership, he or she may find a jumpstart to their dreams in the Civil Air Patrol. CAP is a nonprofit organization that performs 90 percent of the nation's inland search and rescue operations, saving approximately 75 lives each year, according to its website. In the 1930s, more than 150,000 aviators petitioned for an organization to put their planes and flying skills to use in defense of their country. As a result, the Civil Air Patrol Scan with your smartphone for latest weather, news and sports was born one week prior to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Originally assigned to the War Department under the jurisdiction of the Army Air Corps, the Civil Air Patrol continued providing aid to both local and national agencies after World War II. In 1946, President Harry Truman incorporated the Civil Air Patrol as a benevolent, nonprofit organization. In 1948, Congress passed a law permanently establishing Civil Air Patrol as the auxiliary of the new U.S. Air Force. Today the group has about 60,000 members nationwide — including more than 250 in Wyoming — and has three primary mission areas: aerospace education, cadet programs and Civil Air Patrol Cadets salute Cadet Capt.

Larry Hicks, R-Baggs, is sponsoring a bill to codify in Wyoming law a plan that state agencies have used for the past 10 years to resolve possible conflicts between wild and domestic sheep. Recognizing the plan in state law will put the state on firmer legal ground if it has to fight any federal effort to evict domestic sheep producers, he said. State management agencies, hunting groups and grazing interests worked together to devise the Wyoming plan in 2004. It ranks sheep areas in the state according to their value, placing the greatest restrictions on domestic sheep in the prime bighorn areas. “For the last 10 years, we’ve been operating under a handshake,” Hicks said. “In Wyoming it works really well, to the point that the agencies have adopted it.” The Wyoming Wool Growers Association and the Wyoming Wild Sheep Foundation, a wild sheep conservation group, intervened together against environmental groups that filed a federal lawsuit alleging that domestic sheep grazing threatened a small bighorn herd on the Medicine Bow National Forest. A decision in that lawsuit is still pending. Hicks sponsored legislation that became law two years ago specifying that if concern over bighorns in the Medicine Bow National Forest threatened existing domestic sheep operators that the state would remove the wild sheep. Sen. Stan Cooper, R-Kemmerer, is sponsoring similar legislation this year that would specify the state would remove a herd of bighorns from the Darby Mountain area of the Bridger-Teton National Forest if the federal government proposed to cut domestic sheep operations there. FROM 1 Senior member and cadet parent Kristen Marcus said what really sets the program apart from other youth organizations in Sheridan is that this program is putting kids into a situation where they can help someone in an extreme situation. Currently, cadets are being trained to be groundlevel certified in search and rescue missions and hope to be certified in June. Parents are encouraged to sign up either as a sponsor — who goes with on trips and helps out but doesn’t get any training — or as a senior member who receives training in any of 18 different positions. “I signed up just to spend more time with my daughter and found out it was really cool and I want to stay in it,” Marcus said. “I think it’s pretty rigorous. For the three things I wanted to train for I had to complete 117 tasks and I’ve completed 37. And that’s just for the lower level of all of those; to be master rating it takes much more time.” But the hard work could lead to big rewards. If a cadet begins at age 12 and continues through age 18, they could leave the program with a full pilot’s license. Normally a very expensive process, the training they receive is fully covered by the CAP annual fee. If a cadet has an interest in enlisting in the Air Force, they could enter the ranks a grade or two higher than a non-CAP enlistee, meaning higher pay and higher rank at a younger age. Other interests that would benefit from participation are EMTs, life flight pilots, private or small aircraft pilots or even somebody who just wants to learn leadership skills, JUSTIN SHEELY | THE SHERIDAN PRESS Civil Air Patrol Cadet Airman Brie Marcus, center, guards the goal as the cadets play broomball for a physical training exercise Thursday evening at the Wyoming National Guard Armory in Sheridan. Pictured, from left, are Nathaniel Lydic, Talon Heatley and Bryce Lydic. Marcus said. Under the direction of Capt. Jeffrey Baum, a commercial airline pilot of 30 years, cadets get to take flight and even take the yoke during flight. Some members of the community have expressed concerns regarding the cadets taking flight after an accident in 2007 killed CAP senior members from Sheridan. Three members were out in a Cessna 182R aircraft searching for a teen who went missing while fishing, and were killed when their plane crashed in the Bighorn National Forest. The plane went down on a Monday evening and on Tuesday, rescuers reached the remote crash site and recovered the bodies of the crew members, Lt. Col. James Henderson of Cowley and Senior Member James Meyer and Capt. Patricia Larson, both of Sheridan. The missing teen, Keith Bellack of Gillette, was found alive. “Since then, the community has had a foul taste in their mouths for us,” Marcus said. “It was horrible and it should not have ever happened. Accidents happen and we have worked to rectify the problem. The problem that caused the crash is that orders were not followed to the letter. We have a new wing commander who will not put up with any person not fulfilling any order no matter how inconsequential it may seem. If he gives an order and it is not followed then you will not fly.” But to Marcus, it is all about the personal benefits both her and her daughter have received. Marcus has seen a marked improvement in the attitude of her daughter, who she said is a typical pre-teen. “She is 12 going on 13 and she has that attitude, but she’s learning a lot of restraint with the Civil Air Patrol because she has to follow orders,” Marcus said. “Everybody works as a team so everybody knows what is expected of them and when they are expected to do it.” As a senior member, Marcus appreciates the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. “I’ve always been in civil service; I’ve been a Girl Scout leader and things throughout my life,” she said. “So to be a part of potentially making real changes, potentially churning out a cadet who could go out and save someone’s life is excellent,” she added. “I think it is an amazing opportunity for the youth and the adults to not only get involved in the community but also do something that has a much bigger picture.” LICENSE: Council won’t consider issue until mid-Feb. expressed frustration at the long delay.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 30, 2015 www.thesheridanpress.com Sheridan man enters not guilty plea in district court for child endangerment FROM STAFF REPORTS SHERIDAN — A Sheridan man pleaded not guilty to one charge of child endangerment Thursday in 4th Judicial District Court. Kyle Nelson, 26, was charged after a Nov. 25 search warrant executed on his home resulted in his arrest. Police searching the home discovered drug paraphernalia, some with methamphetamine residue, littering the basement in a room with two beds. The drug was found hidden in the laundry room. Also hidden in the home were several firearms and a large amount of ammunition. Police discovered that Nelson lives in the basement of his family’s home, where children also either lived or regularly stayed. According to an affidavit of probable cause, police had been tipped off by someone who claimed to have been in the house and was worried about the chil- dren. The Department of Family Services interviewed the family at the time the search warrant was executed and determined the children in the home had access to the basement where the drugs were kept and used. The agency declared the home unfit for children. If convicted, Nelson faces up to five years in prison, up to $5,000 in fines or both. His trial has been scheduled for June.

WYOMING BRIEFS | House holds first vote on religious freedom bill CHEYENNE (AP) — A bill regarding the religious rights of people has received initial approval in the state House of Representatives. House Bill 83 won preliminary approval on Thursday. It faces two more votes in the chamber before it can be sent on to the Senate for further debate. Supporters say the bill protects the religious rights of people who don’t want to participate in activities they find morally objectionable. Opponents argue the bill would curtail the rights of others. The bill comes after Wyoming was forced by a federal court to recognize gay marriage. The bill’s main sponsor is Republican Rep. Nathan Winters, of Thermopolis. Winters says the measure aims to defend religious freedom from government overreach. But Democratic Rep. James Byrd, of Cheyenne, says the bill would legalize discrimination. House panel OKs resolution on wild horse population CHEYENNE (AP) — The state House Agriculture Committee has endorsed a resolution calling on Congress to address the over population of wild horses in Wyoming and other western states. The resolution passed the committee on a 9-0 vote Thursday and now goes to the full House for debate. There are some 3,000 wild horses roaming Wyoming on federal land. But some landowners say there are too many wild horses that stress the available food resources and cause damage to ranch operations. The Bureau of Land Management manages the wild horse herds but hasn’t been able to keep up. The proposed resolution has the support of Wyoming farming and ranching organizations. Poll shows giant gap between what public, scientists think WASHINGTON (AP) — The American public and U.S. scientists are light-years apart on science issues. And 98 percent of surveyed scientists say it’s a problem that we don’t know what they’re talking about. Scientists are far less worried about genetically modified food, pesticide use and nuclear power than is the general public, according to matching polls of both the general public and the country’s largest general science organization. Scientists were more certain that global warming is caused by man, evolution is real, overpopulation is a danger and mandatory vaccination against childhood diseases is needed. In eight of 13 science-oriented issues, there was a 20-percentage-point or higher gap separating the opinions of the public and members of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, according to survey work by the Pew Research Center. The gaps didn’t correlate to any liberal-conservative split; the scientists at times take more traditionally conservative views and at times more liberal. “These are big and notable gaps,” said Lee Rainie, director of Pew’s internet, science and technology research. He said they are “pretty powerful indicators of the public and the scientific community seeing the world differently.” In the most dramatic split, 88 percent of the scientists surveyed said it is safe to eat genetically modified foods, while only 37 percent of the public say it is safe and 57 percent say it is unsafe.

In Barry Switzer’s second season as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys in 1995, they went 12-4. Pundits, NFL coaches and others disrespected Switzer the year before because he had taken over Jimmy Johnson’s two Super Bowl winning teams and was seen as a go-along-lackey type of coach for owner Jerry Jones. Johnson and Jones had a tempestuous marriage and breakup as coach and owner. Jones hired Switzer who had previously won three national championships as coach of the Oklahoma Sooners. In preparing for Super Bowl XXX against the Steelers, Switzer checked into the team’s Tempe, Arizona, hotel and took a two-bedroom suite with a living room in the middle. In one bedroom was Switzer’s ex-wife; in the other, his girlfriend. The news of Switzer’s suite mates leaked to media. Jones was asked by a horde of Super Bowl reporters about the unusual living arrangement of his Cowboys coach. “See,” Jones replied, “I told you he could coach.” The Cowboys won, 27-17. THE SHERIDAN Press Stephen Woody Publisher Kristen Czaban Managing Editor Phillip Ashley Marketing Director Becky Martini Office Manager Mark Blumenshine Production Manager A Nuclear Iran is new Auschwitz mid the ritual expressions of regret and the pledges of "never again" on Tuesday's 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, a bitter irony was noted: Anti-Semitism has returned to Europe. With a vengeance. It has become routine. If the koshergrocery massacre in Paris hadn't happened in conjunction with Charlie Hebdo, how much worldwide notice would it have received? As little as did the murder of a rabbi and three children at a Jewish school in Toulouse. As little as did the CHARLES terror attack that KRAUTHAMMER killed four at the Jewish Museum in | Brussels. The rise of European anti-Semitism is in reality just a return to the norm. For a millennium, virulent Jew-hatred — persecution, expulsions, massacres — was the norm in Europe until the shame of the Holocaust created a temporary anomaly wherein anti-Semitism became socially unacceptable. The hiatus is over. Jew-hatred is back, recapitulating the past with impressive zeal. Italians protesting Gaza handed out leaflets calling for a boycott of Jewish merchants. As in the 1930s. A widely popular French comedian has introduced a variant of the Nazi salute. In Berlin, Gaza brought out a mob chanting, "Jew, Jew, cowardly pig, come out and fight alone!" Berlin, mind you. European anti-Semitism is not a Jewish problem, however. It's a European problem, a stain, a disease of which Europe is congenitally unable to rid itself.

Email delivery of letters into the Press works best and have the best chance of being published. From the Jewish point of view, European anti-Semitism is a sideshow. The story of European Jewry is over. It died at Auschwitz. Europe's place as the center and fulcrum of the Jewish world has been inherited by Israel, now the largest Jewish community on earth. The threat to the Jewish future lies not in Europe but in the Muslim Middle East, today the heart of global antiSemitism, a veritable factory of antiJewish literature, films, blood libels and calls for violence, indeed for another genocide. The founding charter of Hamas calls not just for the eradication of Israel but for the killing of Jews everywhere. Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah welcomes Jewish emigration to Israel — because it makes the killing easier: ''If Jews all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.'' And, of course, Iran openly declares as its sacred mission the annihilation of Israel. For America, Europe and the moderate Arabs there are powerful reasons having nothing to do with Israel for trying to prevent an apocalyptic, fanatically antiWestern clerical regime in Tehran from getting the bomb: Iranian hegemony, nuclear proliferation (including to terror groups) and elemental national security. For Israel, however, the threat is of a different order. Direct, immediate and mortal. The sophisticates cozily assure us not to worry. Deterrence will work. Didn't it work against the Soviets? Well, just 17 years into the atomic age, we came harrowingly close to deterrence failure and all-out nuclear war. Moreover, godless communists anticipate no reward in heaven. Atheists calculate differently from jihadists with their cult of death. Name one Soviet suicide bomber. Former Iranian President Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani once characterized tiny Israel as a one-bomb country. He acknowledged Israel's deterrent capacity but noted the asymmetry: "Application of an atomic bomb would not leave anything in Israel but the same thing would just produce damages in the Muslim world." Result? Israel eradicated, Islam vindicated. So much for deterrence. And even if deterrence worked with Tehran, that's not where the story ends. Iran's very acquisition of nukes would set off a nuclear arms race with half a dozen Muslim countries from Turkey to Egypt to the Gulf states — in the most unstable part of the world. A place where, say, a moderate pro-American Yemen can fall to pro-Iranian rebels overnight. The idea that some kind of six-sided deterrence would work in this roiling cauldron of instability the way it did in the frozen bipolarity of the Cold War is simply ridiculous. The Iranian bomb is a national security issue, an alliance issue and a regional Middle East issue. But it is also a uniquely Jewish issue because of Israel's situation as the only state on earth overtly threatened with extinction, facing a potential nuclear power overtly threatening that extinction. On the 70th anniversary of Auschwitz, mourning dead Jews is easy. And, forgive me, cheap. Want to truly honor the dead? Show solidarity with the living — Israel and its 6 million Jews. Make "never again" more than an empty phrase. It took Nazi Germany seven years to kill 6 million Jews. It would take a nuclear Iran one day.

McCullough died Thursday in a hospital on remote Norfolk Island, HarperCollins Australia publishing director Shona Martyn said in a statement. McCullough had continued producing books despite a string of health and eyesight problems by using dictation, Martyn said. “Ever quick-witted and direct, we looked forward to her visits from Norfolk Island and the arrival of each new manuscript delivered in hard copy in custom-made maroon manuscript boxes inscribed with her name,” Martyn said. McCullough wrote 25 novels throughout her career. Her final book “Bittersweet” was released in 2013. Her first novel “Tim” was published in 1974. It became a movie starring Mel Gibson, who played a young, intellectually disabled handyman who had a romance with a middle-aged woman. Her second novel, “The Thorn Birds,” published in 1977, became a U.S. television mini-series in 1983 starring Richard Chamberlain, Rachel Ward and Christopher Plummer. The Outback melodrama about a priest’s struggle between church and love won four Golden Globe awards. NEW YORK (AP) — Helen Eustis, an Edgar Award-winning mystery writer who later translated works by Georges Simenon and other European authors, has died. She was 98. Eustis’ son, Adam Fisher, said Thursday that she died Jan. 11 at the Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City of natural causes. Eustis’ “The Horizontal Man” was a crime story about a murdered English professor that won the Edgar in 1947 for best debut novel. “Horizontal Man” will be included this fall in a Library of America anthology of 1940s-’50s crime fiction by women. She also wrote “The Fool Killer,” adapted into a 1965 movie of the same name starring Anthony Perkins, and the children’s story “Mr. Death and the Redheaded Woman.” She received an O’Henry Prize for the short story “An American Home,” published in 1947. Her translations include Simenon’s “When I Was Old” and Edmond Charles-Roux’s “To Forget Palermo.” A native of Cincinnati, she attended Smith College as an undergraduate and based “The Horizontal Man” in part on her time there. Eustis was married and divorced twice. She is survived by her son, her daughter-in-law, Elizabeth, and by three grandchildren. Today’s Highlights in History: On Jan. 30, 1945, during World War II, more than 500 Allied captives held at the Japanese prison camp in Cabanatuan in the Philippines were liberated by U.S. Army Rangers, Alamo Scouts and Filipino guerrilla fighters. Adolf Hitler marked the 12th anniversary of his appointment as Germany’s chancellor with his last public speech in which he called on Germans to keep resisting until victory. On this date: In 1615, Thomas Rolfe, the only child of John Rolfe and his wife, Rebecca (the former Pocahontas), was born in Jamestown in the Virginia Colony. In 1815, the U.S. House of Representatives joined the Senate in agreeing to purchase the personal book collection of former President Thomas Jefferson to replace volumes lost when the British burned the U.S. Capitol and its congressional library during the War of 1812. In 1882, the 32nd president of the United States, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, was born in Hyde Park, New York. In 1933, Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany. The first episode of the “Lone Ranger” radio program was broadcast on station WXYZ in Detroit. In 1948, Indian political and spiritual leader Mohandas K. Gandhi, 78, was shot and killed in New Delhi by Nathuram Godse, a Hindu extremist. (Godse and a coconspirator were later executed.) Aviation pioneer Orville Wright, 76, died in Dayton, Ohio. In 1962, two members of “The Flying Wallendas” high-wire act were killed when their seven-person pyramid collapsed during a performance at the State Fair Coliseum in Detroit. In 1968, the Tet Offensive began during the Vietnam War as Communist forces launched surprise attacks against South Vietnamese provincial capitals. In 1969, The Beatles staged an impromptu concert atop Apple headquarters in London; it was the group’s last public performance. In 1972, 13 Roman Catholic civil rights marchers were shot to death by British soldiers in Northern Ireland on what became known as “Bloody Sunday.” Ten years ago: Iraqis voted in their country’s first free election in a half-century; President George W. Bush called the balloting a resounding success. The downing of a C-130 military transport plane north of Baghdad killed all 10 British servicemen on board; the militant group Ansar alIslam claimed responsibility. Five years ago: China suspended military exchange visits with the United States in protest over $6.4 billion in planned U.S. arms sales to Taiwan. (Those exchanges were reinstated in Jan. 2011.) One year ago: An appeals court in Florence, Italy, reinstated the guilty verdict against U.S. student Amanda Knox and her ex-boyfriend for the 2007 murder of her British roommate, Meredith Kercher. (Knox was sentenced to 28 1/2 years in prison, raising the specter of a long legal battle over her extradition from the U.S. should the conviction be upheld.)

ALMANAC FRIDAY, JANUARY 30, 2015 www.thesheridanpress.com THE SHERIDAN PRESS A7 Ex-museum director now charged with misdemeanor RIVERTON (AP) — Prosecutors have reduced charges against former Pioneer Museum director Carol Thiesse from a felony to a misdemeanor. Prosecutors say they didn’t have enough evidence to prove the felony charges because they could not determine the value of items taken from the museum. Thiesse pleaded not guilty to the new charges. According to the Riverton Ranger, Thiesse now faces one count of larceny by bailee. Prosecutors say she stole property from the museum. The maximum penalty for the misdemeanor is six months in prison and a fine of $750. The felony charges car2146 Coffeen Ave. • 673-1100 ried a maximum penalty 2590 N.

Senate passes bill approving Keystone XL oil pipeline WASHINGTON (AP) — The Republicancontrolled Senate on Thursday approved a bipartisan bill to construct the Keystone XL oil pipeline, defying a presidential veto threat and setting up the first of many battles with the White House over energy and the environment. The 62-36 vote advanced a top priority of the newly empowered GOP, and marked the first time the Senate passed a bill authorizing the pipeline, despite numerous attempts to force President Barack Obama’s hand on the issue. Nine Democrats joined with 53 Republicans to back the measure. This bill “is an important accomplishment for the country,” said Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky. “We are hoping the president upon reflection will agree to sign on to a bill that the State Department said could create up to 42,000 jobs and the State Department said creates little to no impact on the environment.” Still the vote was short of the threshold needed to override a veto, and the legislation still must be reconciled with the version the House passed. “We hope President Obama will now drop his threat to veto this common-sense bill that would strengthen our energy security and create thousands and thousands of new, good-paying American jobs,” said House Speaker John Boehner. Most Democrats framed the bill as a gift to a foreign oil company that would have little benefit for the American people, because much of the oil would be exported. They tried and failed to get amendments on the bill to construct the pipeline with U.S. steel, ban exports of the oil and the products refined from it, and protect water resources. The Senate agreed to add an energy efficiency measure, and went on the record saying climate change was not a hoax and the oil sands should be subject to a tax that helps pay for oil spill cleanups. Oil sands are currently exempt. The Biggest Game of the Year! IT’S NOT A BIG GAME WITHOUT KILLY’S WINGS! Make Killy’s Smokehouse Deli your Party Headquarters!

BIG HORN — Both the Big Horn boys and girls basketball teams kicked off their three-game weekend with wins over Riverside last night, albeit in two varying styles. In the opening game, the Lady Rams (11-5) were off and running, leaving the Lady Rebels (1-12) to eat their dust as they stormed to a 66-21 win. The Riverside girls team is one of the youngest in the state. Just one junior stood out in a group of freshmen and sophomores, and it was evident in the team’s style of play. As shots ricocheted off the backboard and weak passes fell into the arms of Big Horn defenders, the Lady Rams took full advantage. Of Big Horn’s 28 made field goals, 25 of them came from with- in 5 feet of the basket. The emphasis was on passing, specifically up the court, and it paid off. The Lady Rams jumped to a commanding 20-5 lead in the first quarter, and 18 of those points came in the paint or at the free-throw line. It wasn’t until two 3-pointers late in the fourth quarter that Big Horn hit a shot from deep, but it didn’t matter. By that point the Lady Rams had stretched their lead to 40, starting a running clock to end the game. An even-scoring night across the Big Horn stat sheet was led by Kayla Crouse’s 12 points. She also brought down six rebounds, five on the offensive end of the floor. Abby Buckingham finished with 10 points, Ashton Koltiska had nine and Mollie Caiola had eight. Where defensive stops led to fastbreak points for the Lady Rams, it was the same broken record on the Marshawn Lynch talks about why he doesn't talk to the media PHOENIX (AP) — Marshawn Lynch changed the script and fired back at his critics. After two days of giving only scripted answers, the Seattle Seahawks' star running back gave his most extensive comments of Super Bowl week, mostly telling reporters why he won't talk to them. "I don't know what story y'all trying to get out of me. I don't know what image y'all trying to portray of me," Lynch said Thursday. "But it don't matter what y'all think, what y'all say about me because when I go home at night, the same people that I look in the face — my family that I love, that's all that really matter to me. So y'all can go make up whatever y'all want to make up because I don't say enough for y'all to go and put anything out on me." When Lynch arrived at the podium, a man with a reporter's credential who said he was a teacher asked him to give his students a "shoutout." But Lynch wouldn't bite and began his unscripted statement. "Y'all shove cameras and microphones down my throat," Lynch continued. "But when I'm at home in my environment, I don't see y'all, but y'all mad at me.” turntable for the boys team: a slow start. Big Horn (7-9) ended up controlling the game and winning 55-41, but another rough first quarter left head coach Ryan Alley with plenty to harp on as they roll into the weekend. “We’ve had a lot of talks about it,” Alley said of the slow start. “One of these times we’re going to find a team that that’s not going to work. Moving forward with conference we can’t have these kind of let downs where we let a team stay with us longer than they should.” It was the defense that struggled in the first quarter, allowing Riverside (6-7) ball handlers to penetrate and get to the basket uncontested.

SEE MEDIA, PAGE B8 SHS swimmers can’t keep up with Camels FROM STAFF REPORTS SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Broncs had another rough outing in the pool during their home dual against Campbell County High School. In the 12 events, Sheridan managed only 65 points against Campbell County’s 121 team points. However, the Broncs had some notable individual performances. This week’s Sheridan Press Athlete of the Week Presley Felker continued his strong performance from last weekend, winning the only event for the Broncs in the 100-meter butterfly with a time of 1:06.86. Felker also took second in the 200-meter freestyle and was part of the second-place teams in the 200meter medley relay, the 200-meter freestyle relay and the 400-meter freestyle relay. Additionally, Sheridan’s Zach Ahlstrom took second out of 10 competitors in the 50-meter freestyle. The Broncs will head to Casper today to take on swimming powerhouse Kelly Walsh High School. SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Four holes into his first tournament of the year, Tiger Woods already was 4over par and 10 shots out of the lead in the Phoenix Open. When he reached his tee shot on the par-4 fifth hole, he saw the golf ball partially sunken in a divot. Woods put his hands on his hips, closed his eyes and shook his head, wondering what else could possibly go wrong. He couldn't chip. He made only one putt over 6 feet, which is misleading only because Woods had just three birdie attempts on the green from inside 20 feet. He hit one tee shot off the wall of someone's backyard, another in the desert that was marked by a hazard, and yet another that sailed into the gallery on a hill. This was not the same Tiger Woods the crowd in Phoenix saw 14 years ago. His last time at this tournament, Woods was No. 1 in the world by a mile and working his way toward Augusta National and a chance to sweep the majors, which he did. Now he is No. 47 in the world, coming off another injury-laden season, without a major in eight years. He is 39. And he needs time. "This is my second tournament in six months, so I just need tournament rounds like this where I can fight through it, turn it around, grind through it and make adjustments on the fly," Woods said.

(AP) — Kyle Larson, flashing his new Rolex watch, was unfazed Thursday after learning Chase Elliott was going to replace Jeff Gordon in the iconic No. 24. Many NASCAR fans have believed that Larson was the heir apparent to the fourtime champion, a notion Gordon fueled with constant praise of the reigning Sprint Cup Series rookie of the year. Only Larson drives for Chip Ganassi Racing, and says he is happy right where he is behind the wheel of the No. 42 Chevrolet. Gordon announced last week that 2015 will be his last in the car, and Hendrick Motorsports has named 19year-old Elliott has his replacement. “That’s cool for him,” Larson said. “I’m happy where I’m at. Just flip-flop the number, I’m good.” Larson was part of Ganassi’s four-driver lineup that won Sunday’s prestigious Rolex 24 at Daytona, where the victors receive special-edition timepieces. He also won a sprint car race this month in Arizona, a midget race in Oklahoma, and he’s riding a wave of momentum into next month’s start of his second Cup season. Although he grew up a Gordon fan, he said he never dreamed of driving Gordon’s car. “When I was a kid, Jeff Gordon was invincible and I probably thought he was going to race the rest of his life,” the 22-year-old Larson said. He cheered for Gordon as he won his four titles and climbed to third on the alltime victories list, and now believes he’s got the chance to make his own mark in NASCAR while driving for Ganassi. “A lot of people have told me that the 24 then was what the 42 is now where they weren’t the biggest team in NASCAR and Jeff kind of took that and made it into what it is,” said Larson. “I like that possibility to be the guy to make Chip Ganassi Racing a championship team year in and year out. I look forward to hopefully spending a long time with Chip and win a lot of races.” FRIDAY, JANUARY 30, 2015 No. 4 Blue Devils dismiss junior Rasheed Sulaimon from team DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke dismissed junior guard Rasheed Sulaimon from the team on Thursday. Coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a statement that Sulaimon "has been unable to consistently live up to the standards required to be a member of our program. "It is a privilege to represent Duke University and with that privilege comes the responsibility to conduct oneself in a certain manner," he said. "After Rasheed repeatedly struggled to meet the necessary obligations, it became apparent that it was time to dismiss him from the program." Krzyewski didn't not give any details as to what standards or conduct Sulaimon failed to meet, but university spokesman Matt Plizga said that Sulaimon, a junior from Houston, remains in good academic standing and is expected to finish the spring semester. Sulaimon was averaging 7.5 points, 2 rebounds and 1.8 assists this year, coming off the bench in every game. The move comes a day after the fourth-ranked Blue Devils (17-3, 4-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) lost at No. 8 Notre Dame. They visit unbeaten and No. 2 Virginia on Saturday night. Sulaimon's playing time steadily declined during his three seasons. He started 33 of 36 games as a freshman in 2012-13 before bouncing in and out of the starting lineup last year. He averaged 29.2 minutes during his first year while playing at least 15 minutes in every game, but averaged 25.6 as a sophomore. He's playing just 19.3 minutes per game this season. During one two-game stretch last season, he was held out of a home win against Michigan, then played just five minutes against GardnerWebb.

OZ & ROIZEN Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen MARY WORTH by Karen Moy and Joe Giella BORN LOSER® by Art and Chip Sansom "Godzilla 2" is set for release in 2018, but talk about it is all over the blogosphere. Seems in the movie, scientist Nick Tatopoulos is determined to show his colleagues that the much-hunted crea- ture is gentle. But when Nick nuzzles up to the big G, its " roar is so odorific that it knocks him off his feet. (No spoiler alert needed; that's not the whole plot.) As a scientist, Nick should've expected that, because having a revved-up stress response can cause serious bad breath -- and that creature is stressed! Stress hormones help oral bacteria produce stinky sulfuric compounds, and dry mouth, which is also associated with stress, makes things worse. But bad breath isn't the only sneaky sign of stress. Researchers at CarnegieMellon found that stress makes you almost twice as likely to catch a cold. If you're constantly battling that nighttime-coughing-sniffling-aching feeling, try a chill pill instead of a cold pill. Dropping things also can signal you're under stress, because stress disrupts focus. So if you're constantly dropping stuff, pick up our advice for busting your stress response. 1. Mindful meditation 10-30 minutes daily: instructions at sharecare.com. 2. Move it. Physical activity clears stress hormones and your mind, reduces inflammation and relaxes muscles. We suggest a walking program, aiming for 10,000 steps a day. 3. Avoid inflammation-producing foods; they compound the inflammation stress causes (which leads to greater risk for everything from heart and kidney problems to some cancers). Skip added sugars and syrups, most saturated fat, all trans fats and any grain that isn't 100 percent whole. DEAR ABBY Pauline Phillips and Jeanne Phillips GARFIELD by Jim Davis FRANK & ERNEST® by Bob Thaves 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 DEAR ABBY: Last week, I had a seizure in front of my fourth-grade students. This has never happened to me before, so I had never spoken to my students about such a thing. I want to write them and their families a letter expressing my apologies, thanking them for their kind thoughts and giving basic advice on how to handle a seizure. Is this appropriate? If so, how do I start the letter? -APPROPRIATE IN NEW JERSEY DEAR APPROPRIATE: Before writing the letter, check with the principal of your school. Because you now know that you are prone to having seizures, I think it makes sense that your students should know what one is, and what to do in case it happens again in the classroom. Some seizures can be almost unnoticeable, while others can be quite severe. If yours are severe, a student should immediately inform another adult and ask for help. P.S. While you may want to thank everyone for their kindness, it should not be necessary to apologize to anybody for something you couldn't control. DEAR ABBY: My daughter has always been very independent. She had a normal childhood with the usual friends and events, nothing traumatic that I know of. She is a pretty girl with a funny personality and is very bright. The issue is, she is 18 and has been on only two dates. She shows no interest in forming any sort of romantic relationship. She has never had a boyfriend, though many boys have expressed interest in her. The two dates she did go on, one in high school and one in college, she called "duds." She says she's not gay, and has commented on good-looking guys. I don't know what to think. Do you? -- WONDERING MOM DEAR WONDERING MOM: You say your daughter has always been independent. It's possible she has enough selfassurance that she doesn't think she needs a man in her life right now. It may also be that before becoming emotionally involved with anyone she would prefer to focus on her education or career path. Whatever her reasons, you would be making a mistake to push her in any direction she doesn't feel ready for, or make her uncomfortable about being the way she is. DEAR ABBY: Mom passed away five years ago, and Dad died four months ago. For the last years of his life Dad was hoping we'd move into their home. It's a beautiful place in a country setting with lots of trees, including pecan trees. We were undecided. After Dad died, my husband and I were at home making all the funeral arrangements and we were both emotionally exhausted. While I tried to stay busy inside the house, my husband decided to go outside to clear his head. While walking around the yard, he found a pecan in the grass! Abby, there are no pecan trees in this entire neighborhood. We knew the rational answer was that a squirrel must have dropped it, but in our hearts we felt it was Dad giving us the hug we needed so badly, and his way of telling us that everything will work out. We will be moving into my parents' home in the near future. -- AT PEACE IN LOUISIANA DEAR AT PEACE: There's nothing nutty about your experience.

Like family, they age, but unfortunately dogs age more rapidly. Older dogs and cats face many of the same medical problems humans do. Having had the privilege of many, many dogs in our lives (plus birds, ferrets, cats and others, too), we have learned some hints along the way. Our second mini schnauzer, Sauvignon (Savvi for short), became diabetic at about 11 years and required insulin shots. We all learned how to do this (even my husband, David, who hated needles!) without it being a big deal. After all, it prolonged her life (in pretty good health, too) for a year or so. She turned blind a year later, and we all learned how to cope with this also. She went to doggie Valhalla when she was 13 years old. Here are some helpful hints from Heloise and family to help you and your pet deal with blindness: * Your dog can't see someone approaching, so talk before touching or petting your pet, who can hear you. I used a calm voice and would say, "Savvi, I'm in the room" or "Savvi, want to have dinner?" * Leave things in place until your pooch learns where the furniture is and how to navigate a room. Your pet knows your scent and will follow it through the house! * If there is something dangerous your pet might bump into (sharp corners on a glass table), pad the item, if needed. Like a person, a pet who is going blind will take some time to adjust. Be patient and talk more when moving about. Your pet can still hear and smell, so these senses are heightened. -Hugs, Heloise P.S.: Our longtime friend and Savvi's vet, Dr. Tom Vice, kindly reminded me: "She doesn't read the newspaper or watch TV. She will adapt better than you think." He was right! Visit www.Heloise.com to see photos and read Savvi's story. SEND A GREAT HINT TO: Heloise P.O. Box 795000 San Antonio, TX 78279-5000 Fax: 1-210-HELOISE Email: Heloise(at)Heloise.com BABY-SITTER NOTES Dear Heloise: Before we used a baby sitter, I listed important information on paper and laminated it: Our phone numbers, close family numbers, closest hospital, etc. The sheet is posted on the refrigerator whenever we go out. I use a dry-erase marker to note where we will be. It wipes off and is ready for our next night out. -Sammie E., via email CAT CRATE Dear Heloise: We have an outside cat I feed regularly. He is domesticated enough to bring in when the weather is much colder. I got a large plastic tub with a lid, cut a hole in the side and placed old towels and blankets in the bottom. This is his spot to sleep. -- Pat I., Ames, Iowa Bridge Phillip Alder NOT ONLY LEADS, BUT ALSO SIGNALS Albert Einstein, when asked to describe radio, said, "You see, wire telegraph is like a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York, and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. And radio operates exactly the same way: You send signals here; they receive them there. The only difference: There is no cat." A bridge defender sends a signal from his hand and hopes it is received by his partner, sitting over yon. But will that information prove useful and be acted upon? How should the defenders card to defeat this three-no-trump contract after West leads the spade king? The auction was simple and straightforward. North knew that everyone would admire his lovely club suit when he put it down in the dummy. East has no spade honor, so he signals with his three. Then, when South ducks, hoping to pull off the Bath Coup, West must realize that he has to shift at trick two, leading the heart six if he thinks partner has that ace, or the diamond eight if he hopes partner holds that instant winner. Given dummy's holdings, most players would play the diamond, which works perfectly here. East wins with his ace and returns a spade, establishing West's suit while West still has an entry in the club ace. Omarr’s Daily Astrological Forecast BIRTHDAY GAL: Actress Kerry Washington was born in New York City on this date in 1977. This birthday gal has starred as Olivia Pope on "Scandal" since 2012, earning a 2013 Emmy nomination for her work. She's also appeared on episodes of "Psych," "Wonderfalls" and "Boston Legal." On the big screen, Washington's film resume includes roles in "Peeples," "Django Unchained' and "The Last King of Scotland." The actress has been married to NFL star Nnamdi Asomugha since 2013. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Ivory towers hold little appeal. Get conversations rolling that deal with the ordinary and you may discover the extraordinary. Your efforts to be enticing will pay off with a congenial partner. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Create calibrated moves. Move the thermostat up a few degrees where a certain romantic relationship is concerned. Something lovely might happen if you provide warmth and comfort. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Spend quality time with a significant other. Sometimes all a person needs is a hand to hold. Someone may find you attractive and desirable and it isn't wise to argue with a fate like that. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Water seeks its own level. Locate the most comfortable place within the pecking order to better deal with family dynamics. Gather relatives under one roof or get in touch with distant loved ones. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Love and affection is not a spectator sport. Show you're a willing participant and creative about pleasing a romantic partner. You and your special someone need a break from the usual places. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be guided by gut reactions. You're sensitive to subtle shifts in surroundings and the thoughts of loved ones. You may find time to find an item of lasting value or to express tender feelings. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Stubborn mules can be induced to budge. You might make progress and head- Autos-Accessories Finally, if South wins the first trick and attacks clubs, West should duck one round and take note of East's discard of the diamond 10 on the second round. West shifts to that suit, and a spade through South results in a satisfying down two. Jeraldine Saunders way with a certain immovable object. You can agree to disagree, or find a tactful way to compromise. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Anticipation isn't just a feeling reserved for pouring ketchup. Your inner clock is counting down to a time you can hook up with a certain someone. Your intuition is right on target. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): Personal relationships take on a romantic luster. Harmony is restored once a minor spat becomes a thing of the past. Surmount interpersonal challenges by being understanding and forgiving. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Recycling has come into vogue. You know deep in your heart that new isn't necessarily better, but you may still want to throw out or replace something that's outlived its usefulness. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Consenting adults may consent in imaginative ways this weekend. One obstacle that bars a romance may be alleviated. You may be inspired to succeed in a new project. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A conversation might spark a new feeling of permanence in a relationship. With Venus in your sign, you're more appealing and attractive than ever. Take advantage of someone's good opinion. IF JANUARY 31 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Romance and committed relationships might take center stage in the year ahead. Because you're in love with the idea of love, you might not be able to discriminate between wishful thinking and the real thing during the next three to four weeks. The period between now and the end of March, however, is a good time to pursue new friendships, whether for business or pleasure, and a fabulous time to make long-range plans and key decisions. By May, you may be sure enough of a relationship or the desire for a career change to make a firm commitment or launch crucial plans.

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. PUBLIC NOTICE The Wyoming Public Service Commission (Commission) has given Montana-Dakota Utilities Co. (MDU) authority pass on a wholesale gas cost increase of $0.246 per dekatherm (Dth) to its Residential, Firm General Service, and Small and Large Interruptible customers, and an increase of $0.376 to its Seasonal customers, through its Commodity Balancing Account, effective on and after January 1, 2015. The average Residential and Firm General Service customers using approximately 15.6 Dth in January 2015 may expect a monthly gas bill increase of approximately $3.84 or 3.66%, before taxes. Actual bills will vary with usage. The proposed retail rate increases result in a projected dollar-for-dollar increase in the Company’s January 2015 total revenues of approximately $102,336 using projected sales volumes. The increases do not change the Company’s authorized rate of return. Under Commission Rule §§ 249 and 250 a utility may apply to pass on to its customers known or prospective wholesale commodity cost increases or decreases on a dollar-for-dollar basis and subject to public notice, opportunity for hearing and refund. MDU’s application is on ﬁle at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and in the Company’s Sheridan, Wyoming, business office, and may be inspected by any interested person during regular business hours. Anyone who wants to ﬁle an intervention petition, request for a public hearing, or a statement, public comment or protest in this matter must ﬁle in writing with the Commission on or before February 20, 2015. A proposed intervention or request for hearing must set forth the grounds under which they are made and the position and interest of the petitioner in this proceeding. If you want to intervene in this matter or request a public hearing that you will attend, or want to make a statement, a protest or a public comment, and you require reasonable accommodation for a disability, please contact the Commission at (307) 777-7427, or write to the Commission at 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82002, to make arrangements. Communications impaired persons may also contact the Commission by accessing Wyoming Relay at 711. Please mention Docket No. 30013-300-GP14 in your communications. Dated: January 20, 2015.

B8 THE SHERIDAN PRESS www.thesheridanpress.com FRIDAY, JANUARY 30, 2015 WOODS: Salvages an opening-round 2-over 73, nine back from the leader Palmer hit 5-iron to tap-in range for eagle. With water down the Woods came up with two left side and a perilous chip big shots on the back nine to shot awaiting for anything salvage a 2-over 73. That left to the right — the last thing him nine shots behind Ryan he needed — Woods smoked Palmer, who had a 64. a tee shot on the par-4 17th It was the first time in his onto the green, pin-high to career that Woods shot over right, setting up a two-putt par in his first round of the birdie. year. And he made it through There were a few bright the par-3 16th hole without spots. too much of an incident. He was toward the bottom As he settled over his tee of the leaderboard at 5 over shot and was about to pull through 12 holes when he the trigger, someone in the FROM B1 stands screamed out, "Knock it in the tooth!" That was a reference to that photograph last week of Woods at a World Cup ski race in Italy missing his front tooth. On his next try, someone else shouted, "Everybody quiet." Woods never lost his poise, hit the middle of the green and made par. Even so, the focus shifted quickly from the chipped tooth to simply his chip- ping. Woods twice chipped with a 4-iron, opting to bump the ball instead of loft it. Both came up dreadfully short. One led to bogey, the other a double bogey when he three-putted from 20 feet on the fringe. He clanked a routine chip some 15 feet by the hole for a bogey. He bladed one across the green at No. 9 and chose to use his putter to go back a slope. Perhaps the greater indication of the state of his game is that no one was terribly surprised by the struggle, although the chipping is becoming a topic. Woods is working with a new swing consultant, trying to fashion a swing similar to his glory days. He says the change means trying to get rid of the old swing, even in his chipping. This could be a process. "It's not the first time I have gone through this. It takes time," Woods said. "It's just a frustrating thing where I just need to get through competitive rounds. I need to get rounds out of my belt and get a feel for it. Eventually I start trusting it, start shaping shots, and then you just go play. Don't worry about it a whole lot." His game was anything but super, but the atmosphere sure was. The attendance was estimated at 118,461, breaking the Thursday record at the Waste Management Phoenix Open by just over 30,000. Woods and the Super Bowl in town are the reason for that. And while so much attention was on Woods for the opening round, other players benefited from the high-charged atmosphere. Keegan Bradley and Masters champion Bubba Watson each shot 65, one shot out of the lead. Watson hit a drive on the 17th that rolled inches by the hole. He missed the 5foot eagle putt, but picked up an eagle on the third hole. There was a big crowd for that one, for Watson played in the group behind Woods. "I could feel his crowd was really big," Watson said. "You could feel it, the energy, even with the weather the way it was. People still showed up. People still had a blast. And obviously, Tiger created a lot of that." Bradley could sense it, too, even though he played on the opposite side of the draw. Bradley finished his round on No. 9 and hit what he thought was a great approach, except that he wasn't sure because no one was clapping. He turned to his caddie and asked him if it went over the green, or maybe even short of the green. And then he walked up to the green and saw it was 10 feet away. That's when the light came on. "Tiger was on the second green. No one was watching me," Bradley said with a laugh. "It's just amazing to see the draw that Tiger has. Wow, there was a lot of people." They saw some good golf — just not very often from Woods. DEFENSE: Rams up energy in second quarter FROM B1 Alley said the team’s focus over the last few weeks has been stopping quicker guards and getting better help-side defense. Neither seemed to be working early last night. Big Horn’s defensive struggles carried over to the other end of the floor, as well. It took the Rams more than three minutes to score their first point, a Seth Kite free throw, and the Rebels led 16-12 after the first quarter. The energy shifted in the second quarter, and a whole knew Big Horn team appeared to have surfaced. The tides had turned, and the Rams’ defense held Riverside scoreless for the first 4:22 of the second quarter. Big Horn took a 19-18 lead and never looked back. Collin Powers was the leading scorer for the Rams with 17. Seth Kite had 15 and Colton Bates added 13. Both Big Horn teams are vying for top spots in the conference, so the weekend is just getting started. The Rams and Lady Rams will battle 2A Northeast opponents Moorcroft and Sundance tonight and tomorrow, respectively. Tonight’s matchup with Moorcroft will be at home. The girls tipoff at 5:30 p.m. with the boys immediately following. MEDIA: Lynch had lots to praise, just not reporters FROM B1 “And if you ain't mad at me, then what y'all here for? I ain't got nothing for y'all, though. I told y'all that." Lynch, who had spurned reporters' efforts to get him to talk at mandatory news conferences Tuesday and Wednesday, seemed frustrated that they were still trying. "I'm here preparing for a game. And y'all want to ask me these questions, which is understandable. I could get down with that. But I told y'all. I'm not about to say nothing. ... All of my requirements are fulfilled." Lynch praised his teammates, his hometown of Oakland, California, and his Family First Foundation. When asked who the best player on the Seahawks was, he said: "All of them." As he has all week, Lynch stayed five minutes before leaving. At Media Day on Tuesday, Lynch repeated: "I'm just here so I don't get fined" while talking to reporters. On Wednesday, he replied to all questions with: "You know why I'm here." Singer Katy Perry borrowed Lynch's catchphrase during her news conference to discuss her halftime performance. Asked which player she has her eye on, Perry said: "I'm just here so I don't get fined." Lynch has a history of avoiding reporters. In November, the NFL fined him $50,000 for violations of the league's media policy in addition to collecting the $50,000 fine that was imposed against Lynch for violations last season. The fine from 2013 was held in anticipation of future cooperation from Lynch. The Professional Football Writers of America complained to the league about Tuesday's session and Lynch had been apprised of a potential fine. A league spokesman declined comment. Lynch again wore a "Beast Mode" baseball cap and told everyone where they could buy one. The two hats he already wore this week have sold out on Lynch's website, where they're part of his Beast Mode apparel line.
