Sports, B1 Staff, steps or stuff: What will SCSD1 fund? BY ALISA BRANTZ [email protected] RANCHESTER — With an external cost adjustment in hand and preliminary budgets for the 2015-16 school year estimated, officials at Sheridan County School District 1 began early discussions Thursday afternoon on how to spend the money coming in. The district has been the site of much turmoil as of late as Smith financial difficulties led to two years of no raises for teachers and cutbacks in overall staff. Following the approval of the ECA by the Wyoming Legislature, district administrators solicited wish lists from each school’s administrator for what they need most next year. The requests were consistent: more staff. “That is something we’ve heard loud and clear: they’re being overworked because we’ve taken staff away,” SCSD1 business manager Jeremy Smith said. Specific requests included a full-time math interventionist, a media secretary for Big Horn Middle School and High School and special education support. However, throughout recent school board and other meetings, another request has been trumpeted: the staff want raises. Teachers in the district are on a salary schedule with horizontal movements in pay possible through furthering their education and vertical movements through annual raises. The movements through the schedule are called “steps” and members of the board of trustees expressed concerns during the work session Thursday that if the staff doesn’t get a step, nothing else will matter. Though the district will not experience the overall cuts and budgetary restraints they feared had an ECA not been passed, a reduction in their Regional Cost Adjustment has left them with an overall budget that will not allow for all requests and desires to be funded. Other high-cost items under review are the district’s technology needs and how staff insurance and retirement plans are funded.

Three people will be laid off and another staff member who works on gay and transgender rights issues under a grant will stay with the organization, although it’s unclear where she will work, Burt said. “I think Wyoming will be the only state without an office,” she said. “I’m not aware of any other cuts in offices.” The Wyoming office had a $360,000 budget for the fiscal year that ended in March. It was not able to raise the money needed to be self-sustaining and needed help from the national office in New York, said Marsha Zeesman, deputy communications director for the national ACLU. Burt told the Casper StarTribune that it’s difficult to support an organization such as the ACLU in a small state like Wyoming. Zeesman said in a statement that the ACLU will still have a presence in the state with restructured staffing.

The Labor Department said Friday that the unemployment rate remained at 5.5 percent. The March jobs report raised uncertainties about the world’s largest economy, which for months has been the envy of other industrialized nations for its steadily robust hiring and growth. Employers now appear wary about the economy, especially as a strong dollar has slowed U.S. exports, home sales have sputtered and cheaper gasoline has yet to unleash more consumer spending. Some of the weakness may prove temporary: An unseasonably cold March followed a brutal winter that slowed key sectors of the economy. Last month’s subpar job growth could make the Federal Reserve less likely to start raising interest rates from record lows in June, as some have been anticipating. The Fed may decide that the economy still needs the benefit of low borrowing costs to generate healthy growth. www.thesheridanpress.com FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 2015 Obama’s quest for Iran deal set to collide with Capitol Hill WASHINGTON (AP) — After securing a surprisingly broad and detailed framework for a nuclear agreement with Iran, President Barack Obama must now subject his signature foreign policy pursuit to the gauntlet of partisan American politics. A blueprint finalized Thursday after marathon negotiations in Switzerland did little to ease the standoff between Obama and some lawmakers over Congress’ role in a final accord. The president has vowed to veto legislation giving Congress the ability to approve or reject a deal, and he made a fresh appeal for lawmakers to give the U.S. and its international partners space to hammer out a comprehensive agreement ahead of a June 30 deadline. “The issues at stake here are bigger than politics,” Obama said. “These are matters of war and peace.” But Republican leaders reaffirmed their intent to vote on legislation giving Congress the last word. Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, said the panel will vote on such a measure when lawmakers return from a spring recess on April 14. “The administration first should seek the input of the American people,” Corker said. Some Democrats have backed Corker’s quest for a congressional vote on an Iran deal, raising the possibility that lawmakers could override a presidential veto. New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez, who is stepping down as top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee after his indictment on corruption charges, is among those who backs congressional action. ‘The issues at stake here are bigger than politics. These are matters of war and peace.’ Barack Obama U.S. President “If diplomats can negotiate for two years on this issue, then certainly Congress is entitled to a review period of an agreement that will fundamentally alter our relationship with Iran and the sanctions imposed by Congress,” Menendez said in a statement Thursday. For Obama, achieving a nuclear deal with Iran would be a crowning foreign policy achievement and a validation of his pursuit of diplomacy. His overtures to Iran date back to his first presidential campaign in 2008, when he said he would be willing to talk with Tehran’s leaders without preconditions. As president, he has staked enormous political capital on the nuclear negotiations, including secretly approving backchannel talks with Iran largely without the knowledge of Congress and key allies. Senior aides said Thursday that Obama has devoted more time to Iran in recent weeks than any other foreign policy issue, a striking acknowledgment given the upheaval in Yemen and U.S. military engagement in Iraq and Syria. With Congress in the midst of a two-week recess, the Obama administration has time to wage a campaign to get lawmakers to hold off on legislative action. The president called congressional leaders Thursday afternoon and administration officials planned extensive briefings for lawmakers on the details of the framework. Senior administration officials said Obama is open to discussions about how Congress can play an oversight role, though they reiterated Obama’s opposition to any legislative action occurring while negotiators try to hammer out a final agreement ahead of a June 30 deadline. Officials also did not specify what kind of oversight role they envisioned for lawmakers.

OFFICE: Legal work consisted primarily of advocacy FROM 1 A Wyoming-based ACLU staff member will continue ongoing advocacy work, supported by staff at the national headquarters, she said. Zeesman did not say whether people from the national headquarters would lobby for issues before the Wyoming Legislature, as the staff in Wyoming did. Burt said she’s proud of the work of the Wyoming ACLU, particularly in juvenile justice reform and helping prisoners practice their religion and obtain medical treatment. “We were also some of the first people in the state to work on LGBT rights,” she said. The Wyoming ACLU didn’t file as many splashy lawsuits as other ACLU chapters, Burt said. Its legal work has been mostly advocacy, answering thousands of phone calls and letters from people about civil rights issues. Steve Klein of the Wyoming Liberty Group, a libertarian group, said he frequently disagreed with the Wyoming ACLU, but he acknowledged that local staff members had high standards, integrity and zeal for their work. “This is a guy who allegedly works in an extreme rightwing organization saying this about an extreme left-wing organization,” Klein said. “I think this is a big loss for Wyoming.” With the closing of the ACLU office, a voice will be missing from policy discussions at the state Capitol, said Rep. Tyler Lindholm, R-Sundance. “I personally don’t agree with them 100 percent of the time, probably not even 50 percent of the time,” Lindholm said. “The fact of the matter is when you’re making these policy decisions, any type of voice, any type of testimony is wanted and needed.” Rep. Mary Throne, D-Cheyenne, said she got to know ACLU positions during the six years she served on a judiciary panel. “Like all national organizations, it had Wyoming people there, Wyoming people speaking,” she said. “We won’t have that Wyoming ACLU perspective anymore, particularly on issues like juvenile justice. They were really valued.” FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 2015 www.thesheridanpress.com LOCAL COURT BRIEFS | FROM STAFF REPORTS SHERIDAN — Richard Alford, 36, appeared before Judge William Edelman Thursday in 4th Judicial District Court for a pre-trial conference, entering a not guilty plea to a third felony the state has filed against him. The charges stem from an October 2014 incident in which Alford is accused of breaking into a home and attempting to sexually assault a woman who was there. He was initially charged with first degree attempted sexual assault and burglary, both felonies. On Thursday, Sheridan County Deputy and Prosecuting Attorney Christopher LaRosa asked Edelman to approve the amended charges. The amended charges lessen the first degree sexual assault to attempted third degree sexual assault. The changes also make the burglary charge aggravated burglary and adds a second count of aggravated burglary. Third degree sexual assault is punishable by up to 15 years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both. Each of the aggravated burglary charges carry a penalty of 5-25 years in prison, a $50,000 fine or both. Alford entered a not guilty plea to the second count of aggravated burglary Thursday and had previously pleaded not guilty to the other two counts. Alford’s jury trial is set for May 4-5, though LaRosa said he thought a third day could be needed. “We spend over $1 million on health insurance in this district,” Smith said. “So maybe we relook at that and ask if that allocation is right?” Depending on the employee’s selection of plan coverage, some staff of the district pay nothing for their health insurance. The district also pays 100 percent of retirement plans. The current retirement system in place does not ask for contributions from employees but legislation stating employees are required to make part of the investment from their annual salary will likely change that structure in the future. “If we weren’t experiencing the 1 percent reduction in the The board answered that the staff has been very clear, the step needs to come first. “If the step is the priority, take out the technology, take out all the additional staff, throw the step in there, then if we’ve Jeremy Smith got money left after that, work SCSD1 business manager with that toward what the secondary goals are,” trustee Mary Schilling said. purchases, additional staffing Smith will generate multiple and assumed continuation of sample budgets for the board to 100 percent retirement coverreview, showing with each what age. can and can’t be funded. “Of those three things — The board members will additional staffing, steps or select the budget they feel ‘stuff,’ meaning tech and retire- should be adopted during the ment — of those three buckets, regular monthly board meeting what order do you want to tack- on April 14, after which time it le them?” Smith asked the will be referred to the Interest board of trustees. “I went with Based Negotiations Committee additional staff, then stuff, then comprised of district staff and the step.” one trustee for review. ‘Of those three things — additional staffing, steps or ‘stuff,’ meaning tech and retirement — of those three buckets, what order do you want to tackle them?’ regional cost, we’d be able to do all this and have $150,000 for a step, roughly,” Smith said. “That’s the travesty of the whole thing is that we don’t get a full ECA adjustment that some other districts are going to get because we had a reduction in the RCA.” Of the $15,088,000 anticipated budget, preliminary distributions totaling $15,075,000 incorporated additional technology Land’s End performs Cellist Beth Root-Sandvoss performs during the Land’s End Ensemble concert Thursday evening at First Baptist Church. JUSTIN SHEELY | THE SHERIDAN PRESS Fauber trial to be rescheduled SHERIDAN — The May 4-5 jury trial dates set for the case of Joseph Fauber, 42, will likely be rescheduled if a settlement is not reached. Fauber’s trial is stacked behind another trial on those days and Judge William Edelman of 4th Judicial District Court said he would look for other days the trial could be held. Fauber has been charged with felony child abuse and misdemeanor endangering children.The felony charge has a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. The misdemeanor charge could include up to 1 year in prison and a $1,000 fine. Fauber has been accused of causing burns to a child’s head with a cigarette and taping a pacifier into a child’s mouth. 20-year-old enters into plea agreement on fraud, forgery charges SHERIDAN — Jacob Kethman, 20, entered into a plea agreement with the state Thursday in 4th Judicial District Court. Kethman has been charged with two counts of felony unlawful use of a credit card and two counts of felony forgery. Each of the counts carries a potential penalty of up to 10 years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both. Kethman is accused of using a credit card belonging to Mountain View Building company to purchase fuel. He has also been accused of forging a signature in order to obtain automobile parts from Napa Auto Parts. In conjunction with a plea agreement, Kethman changed his plea to guilty on all four counts Thursday. According to the plea agreement, the state will recommend a sentence of two to five years in prison for each count to be served consecutively, suspended in lieu of four years of supervised probation. Judge William Edelman is not bound by that agreement. A sentencing hearing will be set once the presentence investigation is completed. Woman pleads not guilty to nine counts of felony forgery SHERIDAN — Destiny Pyke pleaded not guilty to nine counts of felony forgery Thursday in 4th Judicial District Court. Pyke has been accused of forging checks on an account belonging to the Tunnel Inn. The checks allegedly totaled more than $6,500. Each of the nine counts carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison, a $10,000 fine or both. Judge William Edelman explained all of the charges and noted that a scheduling document would be drafted to include Pyke’s pretrial conference date and trial date.

Publication #0493-920 SUBSCRIPTION RATES Wyoming Board of Education begins work on science standards CHEYENNE (AP) — The Wyoming Board of Education has reopened and expanded the task force assigned to review the state’s K-12 science standards. This the second attempt at reviewing the standards. The first attempt was halted last year when a budget footnote ended all financial support for the state to consider the Next Generation Science Standards. That footnote was removed during the recent legislative session. Although task force members had previously been selected, board members Wednesday decided during a teleconference they would give the public the opportunity to weigh in by reopening seats on the task force. The board is looking to put together a 36member task force made up of educators, parents and business leaders. Though there was work in the spring of 2014 to gauge public interest in being on the review committee, that search is being restarted. “I’d personally like to start a new process so our community and parents know they’re being included and asked to participate,” board member Kathryn Sessions said. “I know it’s a tight timeline, but I think in the whole scheme of things it would be a good thing to do.” Along with restarting the process to gauge public interest in being on the committee, other public outreach is being planned, Education Department chief policy officer Brent Young said. “We can gather from the community their thoughts on what’s important for science education, and we can deliver it back to the committee, and they can see where it fits,” he said. The task force’s first meeting is scheduled for June 1 in Casper. While the board can now consider the Next Generation Science Standards, state law requires it to independently examine them. The debate over the Next Generation Science Standards has largely centered on how the standards treat human influence on climate change. Fossil fuels extraction is the main industry in the state’s economy. 1 Mo. 3 Mos. 6 Mos. 1 Yr.

FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 2015 LETTER | Parenting, treatment essential in remedies Re: Pot access in Colorado Because of our proximity to Colorado, Wyoming residents presently have a heightened awareness as to the pros and cons of legalizing marijuana. As with any substance, there are many concerns regarding the potential abuse of marijuana, regardless of whether it is legal, decriminalized or otherwise. But it is imperative we don’t lose sight of substances that have historically inflicted the greatest costs to society. For the foreseeable future, alcohol and tobacco will continue to cause significantly more problems than all other substances combined in terms of disease, death, addiction, accidents, crime, violence and lost productivity. Methamphetamine use is alive and well in our state, continuing to ruin countless lives and families. Much of the public has become desensitized to its presence, especially in contrast to the media’s fascination and interest 15 to 20 years ago. Doctors have made highly potent and addictive opiatebased pain meds a common item in many people’s medicine cabinets, substances with their own novel and unique set of problems.

PUBLISHER’S NOTEBOOK | •••••• Recommended reading… … Norman Lear’s memoir, Stephen Woody “Even This I Get to Experience,” is an engaging accounting of his successes and failures — most notably his television show “All in the Family” and its spinoffs — and of his love of country. He fought a war to champion gender equality, gay rights, First Amendment freedoms to advance progress in the American home. En route, he was poor, he was rich, he was broke; he was rich again. Multiple marriages, divorces, children. He always considered himself a writer, then a director and a producer. He’s produced Frank Sinatra and Chris Rock and much in between. He’s a bigtime liberal and financier of progressive causes. He doesn’t hold much back in this book. During WWII, he was the radio man and top turret gunner on B-24s flying dangerous bombing runs over Germany, protected by the Tuskegee Airmen fighter pilots. The last third of the book is a bit overwritten, too much with the lifestyles-of-the-rich-andfamous mien, but it’s a good read altogether. His fights with CBS’s “program practices” over race, language and presentation during his heyday as a TV producer are rich; quaint in comparison of what’s on TV these days. One of Lear’s mostly-overlooked gems of a movie is “Cold Turkey” where a small, destitute town in Iowa gives up smoking in order to land an Air Force base. The story is a clever collision of morality, prejudice, media, politics and a changing society. It’s from 1970.

THE SHERIDAN Press Stephen Woody Publisher Kristen Czaban Managing Editor Phillip Ashley Marketing Director Becky Martini Office Manager Mark Blumenshine Production Manager Daniel Lindly Sheridan A For John Bolton, war is the answer fter the horrors of the Iraq War, some former Bush administration officials pursued healing activities. Donald Rumsfeld set up a foundation, and White House chief of staff Josh Bolten has done philanthropic work overseas. Iraq viceroy Jerry Bremer took up painting, as did his old boss, George W. Bush. But John Bolton's avocation is exactly what his vocation was: He makes war. The former State Department official, U.N. ambassador and champion of the Iraq War is exceptionally good at his hobby. At the moment, the Obama administration is trying to nail down a nuclear agreement with Iran, and hawks in Congress are pushDANA ing instead for tougher MILBANK sanctions. But Bolton, | now at the conservative American Enterprise Institute, is leading the charge for a third alternative: immediate bombing. For the mustachioed man of war, force is the option of first resort. The military option isn't just on the table — it's the only thing on the menu. "The inescapable conclusion is that Iran will not negotiate away its nuclear program," Bolton wrote last week in a New York Times op-ed. "Nor will sanctions block its building a broad and deep weapons infrastructure. The inconvenient truth is that only military action" like Israel's previous strikes on reactors in Iraq and Syria "can accomplish what is required." He suggested that "the United States could do a thorough job of destruction, but Israel alone can do what's necessary." DROP US A LINE | The Sheridan Press welcomes letters to the editor.

Control of those controlled substances is improving. A logical, but perhaps unanticipated, consequence of greater restriction to pain meds is the rise in availability and use of heroin. That product is also in Wyoming and relatively affordable. Residents of Wyoming will hopefully continue to value the ongoing need for accessible and affordable treatment options for those suffering from substance abuse and dependency. Our lawmakers will certainly have future opportunities to support appropriate legislation and policy regarding this critical issue. Finally, it should be noted that parents have the greatest opportunity and responsibility to prevent, or at least minimize, the myriad problems associated with substance use. To assume “Everyone is doing it,” “It’s a normal rite-of-passage,” or the always inane “I’m OK with them using in my house because that way I know they’ll be safe,” only teaches our kids how to behave irresponsibly, while increasing their risk of addiction to tobacco, alcohol and any other number of licit and illicit drugs. That could buy three to five years to work on "regime change in Tehran." Bombs and regime change? It sounds so 2003. But there's something refreshing and honest about Bolton's assessment of the situation. Even if one doesn't share his skepticism that a diplomatic solution in Iran is possible, he is almost certainly correct that the alternative to a negotiated settlement is not stronger sanctions — it's war. On Wednesday, I went over to AEI to hear Bolton expand on his views at a forum asking "Is Iran the new North Korea?" The answer, from Bolton's perspective, was obvious: Iran should be the next Iraq — a war Bolton evidently is still fighting. "Now, what about the case of Iraq?" Bolton asked rhetorically after discussing North Korea. "The sanctions have been imposed in light of Security Council decisions by the European Union and others ... " Fellow panelist George Perkovich of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace interrupted Bolton. "You mean Iran," he said. "You said Iraq." "Thank you. Appreciate it," Bolton responded. "In the case of Iran ..." Other than Perkovich, the other panelists, AEI's Nicholas Eberstadt and Michael Rubin, were as dismissive as Bolton was of the Obama administration's negotiations with Tehran. Eberstadt, borrowing some imagery from last week's Germanwings crash, said Obama was trying to "lock the Congress out of the cockpit in the negotiations that are ongoing now." But Bolton, his trademark bushy mustache now white, had no use for that conservative complaint, pointing out that at least 90 percent of international agreements since World War II have not been subject to Senate ratification. "I don't think it's so important that the Senate actually gets a shot at this," he said. "I think in many respects it's a diversion from where I think [attention] should be, which is what a wretched deal this is." Also wretched, he argued, was the call in Congress for new sanctions. "Many people who oppose the Obama administration's negotiations with the ayatollahs over the nuclear weapons issue have said that economic sanctions can solve the problem of a nuclear Iran. This is fundamentally false," he said. That leaves one violent alternative — a conclusion Bolton's AEI colleague Rubin didn't share. Rubin said it would just delay Iran's nuclear ambitions. "Without having a policy in place to take advantage of that delay, it's an irresponsible use of the U.S. military to kick the can down the road," he said. During the question time, I noted their different views on bombing, and Bolton interrupted. "So you can write a story about disagreement at AEI — congratulations," he retorted, before letting me finish. "What is the solution — if negotiations don't work and sanctions don't work and maybe even military power doesn't work — other than hide under our desks?" I asked. Rubin gave a thoughtful answer about a comprehensive effort to undermine the Iranian regime. Bolton didn't answer — and when the session ended, he bolted from the room, two steps ahead of a pursuing camera crew. It probably didn't matter what the question was. For Bolton, war is the answer.

The channel said Thursday they play a couple who befriend a pregnant woman in hopes of adopting her child. The film’s ominous title is “A Deadly Adoption.” The actors and former “Saturday Night Live” stars are unlikely actors for the Lifetime movie franchise, which tends to strike a serious tone. Ferrell and Wiig appeared together in the big-screen movie “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues,” playing it strictly for laughs. Lifetime has kept “A Deadly Adoption” under wraps but says it already has been taped. A debut date hasn’t been announced, but the channel is aiming for early summer. THE SHERIDAN PRESS A5 Playwright David Adjmi wins New York infringement court case NEW YORK (AP) — A playwright who was accused of copyright infringement by lawyers representing the TV show “Three’s Company” over his parody of 1970s sitcoms has won a victory in court. Loretta A. Preska, chief judge of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, ruled Tuesday that David Adjmi, whose play “3C” had a run at Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre in 2012, is protected under the doctrine of fair use. “The play is a highly transformative parody of the television series that, although it appropriates a substantial amount of ‘Three’s Company,’ is a drastic departure from the original that poses little risk to the market for the original,” the judge wrote, noting that copyright law “is designed to foster creativity.” Adjmi had the backing of many theater community heavyweights, including Jon Robin Baitz, Stephen Sondheim, Tony Kushner, John Guare and Terrence McNally. The play is about two girls — one a tomboy, the other a sexy ditz — and a guy who spontaneously become roommates in a rundown Santa Monica apartment after a wild party. They clash with a dislikable landlord who makes offensive, homophobic jokes. The playwright is exploring the idea of a culture avoiding difficult issues and problems by retreating into sex and drugs. The law firm Kenyon & Kenyon, which represents DLT Entertainment, the owners of the TV sitcom “Three’s Company,” sent Adjmi a letter demanding that he cease further performances of the play anywhere. The lawyers claimed that “3C” was damaging to a proposed stage version of “Three’s Company.” After the ruling, Adjmi tweeted: “Come and knock on my door...” A6 PAGE SIX THE SHERIDAN PRESS www.thesheridanpress.com FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 2015 10 things to know today TODAY IN HISTORY | FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS FROM THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Your daily look at latebreaking news, upcoming events and the stories that will be talked about today: 1.

(AP) — Writer Tom Koch, who created sketches for the comedy team Bob and Ray and invented a nonsensical, nearly impossible-to-play sport called squamish, has died at age 89. Koch (pronounced Cook) died March 22 at his Laguna Woods home, his son John told The New York Times. The cause was pulmonary failure. The funny man, who received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Northwestern University, began his career writing for future “Today” show host Dave Garroway’s NBC radio program “Monitor.” He tired of that work, however, and was living with his wife’s family in St. Louis in 1955 when Bob Elliott and Ray Goulding approached him about writing for them. Over the next 33 years he turned out thousands of uncredited sketches for the pair. “He certainly contributed a big part of the Bob and Ray repertoire on radio,” Elliott told the Times. The sketches always arrived by mail. Elliott recalled meeting Koch in person only three times and believed his late partner saw Koch only once. Segueing into television, Koch also wrote for “The Lucy Show,” “My Mother the Car” and other programs. He might be best remembered, however, for inventing the ridiculously complicated game of squamish for a 1965 Mad Magazine story lampooning professionalism in college sports. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 3, 1865, Union forces occupied the Confederate capital of Richmond, Virginia. On this date: In 1860, the legendary Pony Express began carrying mail between St. Joseph, Missouri, and Sacramento, California. (The delivery system lasted only 18 months before giving way to the transcontinental telegraph.) In 1882, outlaw Jesse James was shot to death in St. Joseph, Missouri, by Robert Ford, a member of James’ gang. In 1936, Bruno Hauptmann was electrocuted in Trenton, New Jersey, for the kidnapmurder of Charles Lindbergh Jr. In 1946, Lt. Gen. Masaharu Homma, the Japanese commander held responsible for the Bataan Death March, was executed by firing squad outside Manila. In 1948, President Harry S. Truman signed the Marshall Plan, designed to help European allies rebuild after World War II and resist communism. In 1965, the United States launched the SNAP-10A nuclear power system into Earth orbit; it was the first nuclear reactor sent into space. In 1968, the day before he was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his famous “mountaintop” speech to a rally of striking sanitation workers. In 1974, deadly tornadoes began hitting wide parts of the South and Midwest before jumping across the border into Canada; more than 300 fatalities resulted from what became known as the Super Outbreak. In 1985, the landmark Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant closed after 56 years in business. In 1995, former United Way of America President William Aramony was convicted in Alexandria, Virginia, of 25 counts of fraud, conspiracy and money laundering for stealing nearly $600,000 from the charity. (Aramony ended up serving six years of a seven-year prison sentence.) In 1996, an Air Force jetliner carrying Commerce Secretary Ron Brown and American business executives crashed in Croatia, killing all 35 people aboard. Ten years ago: A day after the death of Pope John Paul II, the body of the pontiff lay in state. Millions prayed and wept at services across the globe, as the Vatican prepared for the ritual-filled funeral and conclave that would choose a successor. Five years ago: The leader of the Anglican church, Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams, said in remarks released by the BBC that the Roman Catholic church in Ireland had lost all credibility because of its mishandling of abuse by priests. White supremacist Eugene TerreBlanche, 68, was bludgeoned to death on his South African farm in a dispute with black farm workers over wages. One year ago: The Associated Press reported that the U.S. government had masterminded the creation of a “Cuban Twitter” designed to undermine the communist government in Havana. Serial killer Tommy Lynn Sells was put to death in Texas after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected his lawyers’ demand that the state release information about where it had gotten its lethal injection drug.

JUSTIN SHEELY | THE SHERIDAN PRESS AWARD: Helped others switch over to digital files FROM 1 His father Ross owned several Sheridan theaters such as the WYO Theatre, the Orpheus Theatre, the Skyline DriveIn then the Centennial Theatre, which was built in 1976. During most of his youth, Campbell spent his time working under his father, helping in any way he could. Campbell went to Montana State University and took over the family business after graduation in 1985. “I always knew I would be in the movie business somehow,” Campbell said. “… It’s a big part of my life. I was born and raised into it; it’s the only business I’ve really ever known.” As the nostalgia of the drive-in theater declined nationwide, Campbell eventually closed down the Skyline DriveIn in 2004. He used the funds from the land to build another screen and remodel the Centennial Theatre downtown. Running a theater is unlike any other business. Between the equipment and infrastructure, it’s capital intensive to start. Working with studios to get the latest movies is always a challenge for a small independent theater. A good portion of Campbell’s job is sifting through film royalties — if a film has fantastic box office sales, it actually costs him more to keep the movie in his theater. Campbell is always at the mercy of studios putting out a quality product. A season with less-than-stellar movies means his business takes a hit along with the studios. Plus, technology is always changing in the theater business. A portion of why Campbell received his award was that he volunteered his time with other members of NATO to help independent theaters across the nation transition from film projection to digital. Digital film keeps theaters competitive with the largest chains in the nation. “The film would degrade every time you ran it through a projector. Now with a digital file, it’s as pristine as it was from day one,” he said. With Campbell’s and NATO’s efforts, 457 theaters featuring just under 3,000 screens nationwide have switched to digital cinema. “The future still looks good [for theaters],” Campbell said. “There is always some new technology and some different way to watch, but the biggest thing is that people always want to watch movies … with a big screen in a dark room where no one is talking; that’s still the way many people like to watch movies.” While it’s always nice to be rewarded for his efforts, most of Campbell’s satisfaction from his job comes from his customers. “It’s a happy business; everyone is always walking out happy,” Campbell said. “It’s almost like running Disney Land — people enjoy the experience.” QUARRY: For interchange ephemeral drainages. • The site should be staked WYDOT resident engineer prior to commercial materiJerry Buckley explained al excavation. that the property sits adja• No site signage would be cent to the future construcpermitted other than direction site and provides two tional signs and those private gravel roads conrequired by the Wyoming necting directly to Department of Interstate 90.

FROM 1 SPORTS FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 2015 Shaka Smart leaving VCU to coach Texas basketball RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Shaka Smart has been a hot coaching commodity since leading Virginia Commonwealth to the Final Four in 2011. He had reportedly shunned several bigtime offers, but the lure of Texas was finally too much to turn down. VCU sports information director Scott Day confirmed Thursday night Smart that Smart was leaving the Richmond university to take over the program in Austin. Smart met with VCU players earlier in the evening at the Siegel Center, the team’s home arena, and at least one player was seen crying when he left. Smart, who has won at least 26 games in each of his six seasons at VCU, is bolting for a Texas program that hasn’t been able to unseat Kansas atop the Big 12. But the Longhorns also boast the wealthiest athletic department in the country and easy access to some of the nation’s most fertile recruiting grounds in Dallas and Houston. Terms of Smart’s contract were not immediately released and VCU said a statement would be released Friday. Barnes made $2.62 million last season, while Smart made $1.8 million with the Rams. Texas athletic director Steve Patterson had zeroed in on bringing Smart to Texas immediately after firing former Longhorns coach Rick Barnes last weekend. Patterson flew to Richmond on Thursday to close the deal. Texas officials did not have any immediate comment on the hire. Smart did not speak to the media gathered Thursday and VCU players were escorted from the building by university public relations without offering comments. That Barnes was pushed out shows Patterson, a former NBA executive, expects big things from basketball. Barnes won three Big 12 titles and recruited elite talent to Austin. Former Longhorns T.J. Ford (2003) and Kevin Durant (2007) won national player of the year honors. But the program had plateaued and the early-round exits in the NCAA Tournament started to mount, despite rosters full of future NBA talent. SEE SMART, PAGE B8 www.thesheridanpress.com THE SHERIDAN PRESS Cruising past the Camels B1 Bowling Green fires head men’s basketball coach Chris Jans BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — Bowling Green has fired coach Chris Jans after “an investigation into his recent public conduct,” the university said in a statement on Thursday. He led the Falcons to a 2112 record — a nine-game improvement — in his first year at Bowling Green. The Falcons went 1-1 in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament after an 11-7 mark in the Mid-American Conference. In the statement issued by the athletic department, the university said “Jans’ public conduct failed to meet his obligations as a head coach.” The university didn’t specify what the conduct was. Assistant Mark Downey is taking over dayto-day operations of the program while a search for a replacement begins. Mountain West teams to play MVC teams JUSTIN SHEELY | THE SHERIDAN PRESS Sheridan Bronc Dontae Crow scores his second goal against Gillette Thursday at Sheridan High School. Sheridan defeated the Camels 3-0. Crow’s two goals lead Broncs to win over Gillette BY MIKE PRUDEN [email protected] SHERIDAN — Senior midfielder Joe Shassetz told his mom that in his first three years at Sheridan High School, he had never beaten Gillette on the soccer field. That changed last night when the Broncs dominated the Camels in a 3-0 victory at Scott Field. It didn’t take long for Dontae Crow to get his head on the ball and send it to the back of the net, and Sheridan was in control for the rest of the game. In the early going, Gillette pushed the ball. They spent four minutes and some change putting pressure on the Sheridan defense, controlling the ball and getting it inside the box at will. But Sheridan never flinched. Goalkeeper Jess Edens barked out orders to his defenders as the group sent balls away from the net. That’s when Crow struck. The speedy forward broke away from the defense as AJ Kassen booted the ball downfield. With a little help from the wind, the ball bounced beautifully right to Crow’s head, and then, without hesitation, to the back of the net. “(Gillette) controlled it,” Sheridan head coach Matt Johnson said. “Once we got that goal, I think we kind of woke up and thought we can play with these guys and any sort of nervousness went away.” The Camels got one decent look with 13 minutes left in the first half but missed long. They wouldn’t come that close again, and another Gillette miscue gave the Broncs a 2-0 halftime lead. SEE CROW, PAGE B8 LARAMIE (AP) — The Mountain West and Missouri Valley conferences are renewing their agreement for men’s basketball. The agreement features head-to-head competition between 10 Mountain West and 10 Missouri Valley teams annually, with each conference hosting five games apiece each season. The two conferences had a similar agreement during the 2009-10 through 2012-13 seasons. In the 2015 season, games will be played in November and December. In future seasons, contests will primarily be played during a nine-day window beginning the weekend after Thanksgiving. Under the agreement, Wyoming will play at Indiana State on Nov. 16 next season. Stagnant Lady Broncs fall 1-0 to Gillette BY MIKE PRUDEN [email protected] SHERIDAN — After the Sheridan girls soccer team was held scoreless by the Gillette Lady Camels last night, head coach Mallery Marshall was admittedly surprised. Of all the things her Lady Broncs do well, their offensive prowess is typically the best. So a 1-0 loss to third-ranked Gillette was not what the coach had in mind. “We struggled really offensively,” Marshall said. Robbi Ryan (21) battles with Gillette's Molly Kihbacher for possession of the ball inside the box Thursday at Scott Field. MIKE PRUDEN | THE SHERIDAN PRESS “Typically things that we’re really good at — having a really quick attack, good possession in the midfield and working it out to the flanks. All those things have been kind of natural for us were just not there tonight.” Despite the struggle offensively, Sheridan did a good job keeping Gillette off of the board as well. Specifically, freshman goalkeeper Zoie Jones was in control of the box. Anytime the Camels pressured, she was there for the save. The score was nil-nil heading into halftime. While the offense wasn’t much more productive for either team in the second half, all it took was one, and Gillette got one that was nearly impossible for the Lady Broncs to stop. SEE GOAL, PAGE B8 B2 THE SHERIDAN PRESS www.thesheridanpress.com FRIDAY, APRIL 3, 2015 Paltry snowpack forces skiers to higher ground amid drought BRIAN MELLEY ASSOCIATED PRESS SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) — We've trudged through deep powder, braved icy slopes and weathered rain, wind and snow in an annual quest to reach a ski cabin in the wilderness of Sequoia National Park for the past 13 years. We always had skis on our feet — until this year. The fourth year of the devastating drought that has dried up wells, forced mandatory rationing and jeopardized California crops has also put a burden on backcountry skiers in search of their powdery fix. So it was that seven friends hit a dusty trail in hiking shoes Sunday, toting good food, tolerable wine and hefty skis and boots strapped to our backpacks, on a hopeful quest for a few good runs. Snow lovers who win the November lottery for a bunk at the Pear Lake Ski Hut dream for months of the winter wonderland that lies 6 miles up a tough trail. Even in spring, you can expect smooth turns on the white blanket covering the steep, dramatic granite ridges, cirques and peaks. A year ago, we skied from our cars to the hut in fresh snow. Then it dumped for two more days, and we hooted as we shot through the trees in knee-deep powder toward the Marble Fork of the Kaweah River. This year, we hoofed through a forest carpeted in brown to reach a view of exposed gray granite in the alpine zone. Ski wear was out of the question in the hot sun. Three in our party wore shorts, and one wore a skirt. It's never an easy trek in the thinner air above 7,000 feet, but the unwieldy 60-pound packs, with ski tips soaring 3 feet overhead, snagging branches, added a challenge. Hikers, usually rare, were abundant and warned us there wasn't much snow up ahead. Thanks, but we didn't need to hear it a dozen times. After huffing up 2,000 feet in the first 4 miles, the trail lurched downhill to Heather Lake. A sometimes treacherous descent on skis was now a welcome respite from the relentless climb. Ice we usually cross as a shortcut was melted along the edge of the lake, forcing us to clamber over two little hills and wind around the shore. Snow was still hanging on in places around 9,000 feet above sea level, but it was too patchy and icy for skis and too soft to trust with your full weight. We moved slowly, trying not to slip and stepping gingerly to avoid the dreaded posthole — the unexpected plunge through the crusty snow. It didn't help. We all broke through several times, sometimes sinking crotch-deep and needing help to get out. It was nearly sunset when we finally reached the cabin, a rustic, granite-and-timber structure built by the Civilian Conservation Corps that opened to skiers in 1941 and serves as a summer ranger station. The next morning, after a good meal and a good rest, we optimistically buckled on our skis and searched for a route to higher ground and better snow. Several times we were thwarted and had to take off our skis — first, to cross a rushing creek and then to scramble awkwardly in ski boots hundreds of feet up a steep, rocky incline. When we crested the ridge around noon, somewhere around 10,000 feet, we were finally looking at a sea of white. The sun had softened the snow. It was perfect for skiing.

The Lady Broncs fell 1-0 to Gillette. Hanson named All-American Honorable Mention FROM STAFF REPORTS SHERIDAN — Sheridan College sophomore Tiana Hanson has been named a National Junior College Athletic Association All-American Honorable Mention for the 2014-15 women’s basketball season. Hanson finished the season with 20.2 points and 10.5 rebounds a game, both team highs. Her 288 freethrow attempts were the most in the coun- Hanson try, and she was 11th in the nation in points and 18th in rebounds. She led the Lady Generals to a 25-7 record and thirdplace finish in the conference. Hanson was named to the Region IX All-Region team and received the most votes amongst honorees. She was recently named the Sheridan Press’ Female Winter Sports Athlete of the Year. Randle, Stanford beat Miami 66-64 in OT in NIT title game NEW YORK (AP) — Chasson Randle hit two free throws with 3.4 seconds left in overtime, and Stanford won the second NIT title of his career, edging Miami 66-64 on Thursday. Sheldon McClellan’s doublepumping 3-point attempt that would have won it at the buzzer wasn’t close to going in. The short-handed Hurricanes had rallied from a 13-point second-half deficit to force the extra period and led 64-61 with less than a minute left. But Randle twice got to the line, making four straight foul shots for the victory. The senior, who became the Cardinal’s all-time leading scorer in Tuesday’s semifinals, finished with 25 points Thursday to end his career with 2,375. McClellan led Miami with 17 points. The experimental 30-second shot clock being used in the NIT proved critical after Randle’s free throws pulled Stanford to 64-63 with 38.9 seconds left. With the regular 35second clock, the Cardinal (2413) probably would have needed to foul. Instead, they played defense, and Deandre Burnett missed a 3-point attempt that might have clinched it. Randle then leaned into Davon Reed on a jumper to draw a foul and the chance to put Stanford in front. Miami (25-13) threw the ball away on the ensuing inbounds pass, and after Brown made a free throw with 3.1 seconds to go, the Hurricanes appeared to do it again. But the officials went to the monitor and reversed the call, ruling Stanford touched the ball last. That gave Miami one last chance with the ball under the basket and 1.8 seconds left. With the scored tied 55-all and just over a minute left in regulation, the game became a contest of the teams’ top scorers driving to the hoop. Twice Randle hit shots to put Stanford in the lead only for McClellan to draw a foul on the other end and hit both free throws to tie it. After McClellan made it 59-59 with 16.8 seconds to go, Stanford worked the ball around for an open 3-point attempt by Marcus Allen, who had made some big second-half shots. But he missed it at the buzzer to send the game to overtime. Stanford center Stefan Nastic had fouled out late in regulation, and McClellan finally started to find room in the paint in OT. He drove the lane for a dunk to give Miami its first lead since nearly seven minutes remained in the first half, then dished to Reed for a layup and the three-point lead. McClellan shot just 5 of 16 from the floor with Brown playing tough defense on him, but he was 6 of 7 from the foul line. With the score tied at 18 and less than six minutes left before halftime, Randle had eight points, an assist and a steal as Stanford closed the half on a 143 run. The Cardinal quickly extended the lead to 13 early in the second half. They were up 10 with under 13 minutes left, but the Hurricanes wouldn’t go away. Omar Sherman hit both ends of a one-and-one with 3:27 remaining to tie the score at 53-53. TIP-INS Miami: The Hurricanes were without starting point guard Angel Rodriguez (wrist) and center Tonye Jekiri (concussion). Backup point guard Manu Lecomte (knee) played only five minutes. SHERIDAN — Fighting both gusting winds and some of the top competition in the region, Sheridan County track and field athletes put up fantastic earlyseason performances at the Susan Windham Memorial Invitational in Gillette Thursday. Sheridan’s Peyton Bomar grabbed a handful of firstplace finishes in the 300meter hurdles, long jump and the triple jump. Bomar also finished second in the 100-meter dash. Pippen Robison and Janika Sweeney took second and third in the 800-meter run, respectively. The Broncs’ Dayton Bruney took first in the long jump with a massive leap of 20 feet, 2.75 inches, while Jered McCafferty took second in the 1600-meter run and third in the 800-meter run. Joe Klebba’s 127-foot, 1inch toss in the discus event was good enough for second place. Dillon Lyons led the Tongue River Eagles with a second-place finish in the boys long jump and Austen Scammon took fifth in both the 110-meter hurdles and 300-meter hurdles. The Lady Eagles’ LeAnna Mitchell crossed the line in fourth place in the 100-meter dash and Micaiah Huff took third in the 110-meter hurdles. Garrett Allen of Big Horn took the top spot out of 46 competitors in the boys shot put with a toss of 47 feet, 1 inch. The Rams’ Mason Lube threw his way into third in both shot put and discus events and Christian Mayer had a third-place finish in the 100-meter dash. Bailey Bard had a pair of fourth-place performances for the Lady Rams in both the 200-meter dash and 300meter hurdles. Emily Blainey took fourth in the long jump and fifth in the triple jump. Sheridan County schools will have this weekend off but will resume action next weekend. Tongue River will play host to Big Horn and other schools at the Pre-Prom Invitational on April 10. The Broncs head down to Casper on April 10 to participate in the Kelly Walsh Trojan Invitational.

(AP) — Richard Childress Racing has appealed the penalties NASCAR levied against Ryan Newman’s team for allegedly manipulating tires. NASCAR this week said tires taken from Newman after the March 22 race in California failed an independent inspection and had been altered to intentionally release air pressure during the race. Crew chief Luke Lambert was fined $125,000 and suspended for the next six races. The suspension also includes the All-Star race in May. Lambert was also placed on probation through the end of the year. PICKLES NON SEQUITUR Tire technician James Bender and engineer Philip Surgen also were suspended six races and placed on probation through Dec. 31. Newman and car owner Childress were docked 75 points each. No date for the appeal was set Thursday. NASCAR said RCR requested to have all the penalties deferred while the appeal takes place. The sanctioning body granted the deferral for the suspensions and fines, but did not reinstate the points for Newman and Childress. NASCAR said the points would be reinstated if RCR wins the appeal.

OZ & ROIZEN Dr. Mehmet Oz and Dr. Michael Roizen MARY WORTH by Karen Moy and Joe Giella BORN LOSER® by Art and Chip Sansom The heavy metal band Manowar became the Guinness World Records' "World's Loudest Band" when they hit 129.5 decibels in a live concert in 1994. And why isn't that cool? Because permanent hearing loss can hap- pen from listening to 85 dBs for an extended period of time, and it takes only 15 minutes of 100 dBs for that kind of damage to be done. (A typical conversation is about 60 dBs.) According to a new World Health Organization report, hearing loss is a life-changing health issue that threatens 1.1 BILLION teens and young adults around the world. And it's mostly caused by "unsafe use of personal audio devices, including smartphones, and exposure to damaging levels of sound at noisy entertainment venues such as nightclubs, bars and sporting events." If young folks become partially or severely deaf, the report points out, they'll pay a big price in mental and physical health issues, not to mention lost employment opportunities and social difficulties. So listen up, Mom and Dad! Protect your kids' hearing by making them aware of the risks associated with earbuds (1 hour a day at a low volume is optimal); loud concerts (very uncool, but they should wear earplugs); and deafening sporting events (earplugs again). Convince them by downloading a decibel meter app to their smartphone: Have them measure the volume in their earbuds (keep it around 70) and at any venue, so decades from now they can hear the sounds of nature, their children's voices and the music they love.

Her first therapist arrives at 7:30 a.m. and leaves at 11:30 a.m. Some days, she will pick up something to eat on the way. Most days, I suspect she hasn't eaten breakfast. About once a week she'll call out for me, asking for a snack -- usually a breakfast sandwich -- which I make for her. Last week, she asked for some chocolate-covered nuts I had offered her once. I told her we had eaten them. I finally put out a bowl of old hard candy to stop her from asking. She has been eating it for a while now and joking that I'm making her gain weight. Must I continue providing her snacks or say something about her bringing her own? I am grateful for the work she does for our daughter and hope I'm not sounding petty. -UNSURE IN KANSAS DEAR UNSURE: You should not be responsible for feeding your daughter's therapist. Have a talk with the therapist and suggest that if she's "out of fuel" at the end of your daughter's session that she bring some individually wrapped cheese sticks or fruit with her. It would be a lot healthier than what you're giving her and probably better for her. DEAR ABBY: My 18-yearold son and his fiancee have been kicked out of a few apartments and have asked to live with me. Wanting to help him, I agreed. When they moved in, I gave them four rules to follow: No drugs in the house, no sex, no coming upstairs after 10 p.m., and the dishes must be done every night or they will pay $400 a month rent. Well, a week ago I caught them doing drugs, so I called the cops. They were arrested that night. They are now asking to come back. I refuse to allow it because I have an 11year-old at home with me and another 18-year-old who I want to keep away from this kind of influence. My son keeps texting me and trying to guilt me into changing my mind because he got his fiancee pregnant. Where I live it gets very cold, but I need to show my other children it's not OK to do drugs. Am I doing the right thing by not letting them come back, or am I a heartless mother like he says? -- MOM OF TOUGH LOVE DEAR MOM: Regardless of what your son says, you are not heartless. You took him in with certain conditions. He and his girlfriend abused your trust, and you handled the situation wisely. If the girl is really pregnant, she should not be using drugs. If she's hooked on something, she needs to get into a rehabilitation program ASAP. If she has parents, perhaps they will take her in. But you have done your part, and if you allow your son and his girlfriend to stay with you, they will continue to break your rules and you'll wind up responsible for them and the baby -- or two or three. I advise against it.

EOE Bridge Phillip Alder IF YOU BID UP, PLAY UP ALSO Khalil Gibran, a Lebanese artist, poet and writer, said, "The teacher who is indeed wise does not bid you to enter the house of his wisdom, but rather leads you to the threshold of your mind." That is so true. At the bridge table, after bidding, you must apply your mind to winning the requisite number of tricks. In today's deal, South pushes into six hearts. West leads the spade 10 to South's ace. How should declarer continue? In the auction, South's twoheart rebid was forcing, since North's two-over-one response guaranteed a rebid. When South heard about respectable heart support, he plunged into Blackwood. He upgraded for his secondary club fit. If trumps are 2-2, there will be no problems. If they are 4-0, the contract has no chance. But what if they are 3-1? Then it looks as if declarer would need the club finesse to work. However, there is another possibility. South cashes his heart ace, plays a diamond to dummy's ace, ruffs a diamond in his hand, leads a heart to dummy's king (getting the bad news), and ruffs the last diamond. Then declarer plays off his other two spade winners. With his preparations complete, South exits with a trump, giving East the lead. Here, East has only clubs left in his hand, so must play away from his queen into dummy's ace-jack. Note, though, that if East still has a spade or diamond in his hand, declarer would ruff and take the club finesse.

You won't struggle to make ends meet if you use a little imagination. Someone might give you a clue, an idea, a small gratuity, or just some plain old-fashioned advice. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Concentrate on being original and innovative without upsetting anyone's applecart. Voicing your opinions in the wrong venue might stir up controversy or cause a rift.

Someone might share the same goals as you and provide the knowledge or skill you need to make your sad little piggy bank smile. Enlist support from new-found allies. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21): A one-of-a-kind purchase might be tempting. If you're a shopaholic you may be attracted to a vintage item or a homemade knickknack from an exotic location. Be sure you don't end up with a white elephant. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't issue ultimatums and don't back down. Minor irritations and unexpected opposition to your plans will fade in a few days. Just stick to your guns and wait for the mood to change. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You're known by your friends. True friends are always there by your side through thick and thin. Make the best of the current conditions by concentrating on what your companions really want and need. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There's safety in numbers. Participate in a group discussion, visit a local gathering place, or go out on a double date. The friendlier you are toward others, the more likely you'll get friendly feedback in return. IF APRIL 4 IS YOUR BIRTHDAY: Reach for your dreams during the next 4-6 weeks. Anything that's good for you'll achieve with ease. However, you may be protected from getting what's not in your best interest. Ambition may drive you to burn the candle at both ends for the next several months, and starting any new business plan might be an uphill battle. If you work hard and fulfill your obligations you can win the stardom you crave or the kudos you deserve in September. Circumstances may force you to prove yourself again and again, but rewards will come.

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.

Despite the two-goal advantage, though, Johnson knew how quickly the tides could turn, especially with the wind blowing like it was last night. “We were a little more defensive minded,” Johnson said of the second half adjustments. “But we didn’t want to give up that pressure. We didn’t want to just come back and play to not lose. We wanted to play to win.” The Broncs never let up. They nearly struck just as early in the second half as they did in the first, but a shot bounced off the post and the ground and somehow didn’t go in the net. It was Crow, this time with some fancy footwork, who closed the game just as he had opened it. One-on-one with his defender, Crow froze his defender with moves that Michael Flatley may borrow. He shook the defender, tapped the ball to Shassetz, and Shassetz gave it right back. Crow finished the highlight-reel play with a low kick in the bottom corner of the goal. 3-0. Broncs win. It may have been their first win over Gillette in a while, but Johnson doesn’t want to focus too much on the Camels. Sheridan travels to Laramie next week where they will take on the defending state champs. “This is not even close to the highlight of our season,” he said. “We want to start this and say, ‘What did we do that made us successful in this game, and how can we replicate that?’ It’s going to be a tough test for us.” The Broncs will be on the road next weekend to take on Laramie and Cheyenne South. Sheridan’s Cody Williams takes a shot at the goal during the game against Gillette Thursday at Sheridan High School. JUSTIN SHEELY | THE SHERIDAN PRESS SMART: Owes VCU $500,000 buyout FROM B1 At VCU, Smart took over a program that had had great success under Jeff Capel, and then Anthony Grant. He hopes to avoid the pitfalls at Texas that his predecessors encountered when they left to take over programs at universities considered “football schools.” Capel lasted five years at Oklahoma before being fired, and Grant spent six at Alabama before he was dismissed. By leaving before May 1, Smart owes VCU a $500,000 buyout. His contract also contains a provision that if he became a head coach at another institution, that school would have to play VCU in a home-and-home series, or pay VCU $250,000. Barnes led Texas to 16 NCAA Tournaments in 17 seasons but his teams haven’t made it out of the first weekend since 2008. His best years came from 2003-2008, when Texas made its first Final Four in more than 50 years and twice more reached the tournament’s final eight. Texas also earned the program’s first No. 1 ranking in the 2009-2010 season. Smart had some success right away at VCU when the Rams won the CBI postseason tournament in his first year. But it was VCU’s monumental run in the NCAA Tournament the following year that really got Smart noticed. The Rams went from being a questionable selection, barely getting a bid and playing in the First Four in Dayton, Ohio, to beating five major-conference schools to reach the Final Four. The Rams have been back in the NCAA Tournament each of the past four seasons, but were eliminated in the round of 32 in 2012 and 2013 and lost their first game in overtime each of the past two seasons. Beyond the Final Four run, this year might have been Smart’s best coaching job at VCU. The Rams lost Briante Weber, the leader of their “havoc” defensive style, on Jan. 31 to a knee injury, and played the last month and a half with scoring leader Treveon Graham bothered by a high left ankle sprain, sometimes even sidelined. VCU (26-10) lost six of 10 late in the season, enduring its first three-game slide in Smart’s six seasons, before winning five straight, including four in four days, to win the Atlantic 10 title. Smart’s 26 wins in six consecutive seasons is a feat matched only by Duke. With the interest he has generated in basketball, a $25 million basketball practice facility is under construction and scheduled to be ready for use in the fall. GOAL: Gillette capitalizes on free kick FROM B1 Just five minutes into the half, a bump from a Sheridan defender allowed Gillette a free kick, some 40 yards out. The Lady Broncs formed their typical wall and readied the defense. That’s when Gillette’s Emma Jurewicz booted the free kick around the wall and past any and all defenders. Jones had no shot. The goalie stretched her arms as far as they could go, but it was no use. That ball was headed right for the upper 90, and nobody was stopping it. The Lady Broncs came close to an equalizer only once, but a scrum for the ball in the box resulted in a Robbi Ryan yellow card rather than a goal. Sheridan never recovered. “We still have people playing positions they haven’t played yet ever before, and we’re still working on combinations,” Marshall said. “But still, with that being said, it was flat tonight. I’m not sure why. We had a great week of practice. It just, unfortunately, didn’t work out for us tonight.” The Lady Broncs will look to bounce back from last night’s loss when they take on Laramie and Cheyenne South next weekend. Both games will be played at Scott Field. Manfred: MLB’s decision on Hamilton probably after opener NEW YORK (AP) — Commissioner Rob Manfred says a decision on possible discipline against Los Angeles Angels star Josh Hamilton likely will happen after opening day. Manfred had been hoping for a decision before the Angels start play Monday at Seattle. “I think that we’ll have something on Hamilton in relatively short order — probably has been a little slower just because he’s not available to play,” Manfred said Wednesday on SiriusXM radio. Asked whether it would be before opening day, Manfred responded: “shortly after, probably.” Hamilton has had a long history of drug and alcohol abuse, and has been suspended in the past. The Angels said Hamilton met with baseball officials last month, but neither side provided details on the reason for the session. He is recovering from shoulder surgery and his status for opening day was in jeopardy even before the meeting with MLB. Hamilton is going into the third season of a $125 million, five-year contract with the Angels. No paws to Hank craze: Brewers pup items are hot sellers MILWAUKEE (AP) — The fascination with Hank the dog has legs. The stray pup wandered into the Milwaukee Brewers’ spring training facility in Arizona last year. Later adopted by a team executive, the fluffy white pooch remains a top fan favorite. In time for Monday’s home opener, a kiosk of Hank-related items has been erected on the field level concourse at Miller Park. It features a variety of items for sale, including Hank T-shirts, plush toys and dog leashes. A locked display case features an array of expensive collectibles for the most dedicated Hank fans. A Hank-worn All-Star game jersey, made especially for him, can be purchased for a whopping $1,200. The dog’s bowl, with food residue still visible, has a $100 price tag. A bed on which Hank once slept can be had for $250. Want a framed picture of Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy with the precious pup that includes swatches of jerseys worn by each? Shell out $175 and take it home. “This is just of function of the demand for Hank merchandise,” Brewers chief operating officer Rick Schlesinger said Thursday. The Wisconsin Humane Society receives 20 percent of revenue from the sale of Hank merchandise. To date, more than $200,000 has been raised, the team said. Hank again will be honored with a bobblehead doll, which will be adorned in pink and doled out to fans attending a Mother’s Day game. “It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Hank is extremely popular,” Schlesinger said. Hank visited the Maryvale Baseball Park in Phoenix last week to raise awareness for pet adoption programs at the Arizona Humane Society. He will make appearances for charitable causes in the Milwaukee area during the season, and return for several visits to Miller Park, too. Otherwise, Schlesinger said things are also looking up with ticket sales, which are up more than 15 percent from the same time a year ago despite the team’s lateseason collapse. The Brewers missed the playoffs for a third straight year. “Our fans shared our disappointment the finish last year but they are committed to this team and are showing it with ticket purchases,” he said. To date, the Brewers have sold about 1.6 million tickets. The Brewers also unveiled a variety of unusual food options during a sneak preview Thursday at Miller Park, including nachos on a stick and an 18-inch bratwurst topped with shoestring fries, gravy, cheese curds, fried sauerkraut, cheese sauce, fried jalapenos, sour cream and chives. Buffalo-based Delaware North Cos., the stadium’s food vendor, developed the items.
