  • Carnival company will take part in county fair

    Caitlin Sievers|May 12, 2014

    After some negotiation, Sun Valley Rides made an agreement with the Cheyenne County Fair Board to participate in this year’s fair. The fair board announced last month that the carnival was not returning to the event this year. Board members were worried that without a carnival, it would have a hard time drawing visitors to the fair, which has been a concern in past years even with the carnival in action. The carnival company claimed that it previously backed out due to financial issues. Sun Valley Rides blamed horrible weather last summer, whic...

  • Letter to the Editor: Doing Sidney right

    C.J. Cornelius|May 12, 2014

    Our community should be right proud of our city manager’s testimony before a US Senatorial audience recently. It sort of put our city in the national limelight for a short time and certainly a lot of the credit accrues to our own Gary Person. I have known Gary since he first appeared on the scene as a reporter for the Scottsbluff Star Herald and have worked with him on many of his projects over the years. He has exemplified the traits that have identified those of vision and common sense which are more often seen in the midwest. We are f... Full story

  • No Till Notes: 'Cheat grass'

    Mark Watson, Resources Conservationist|May 12, 2014

    I wish I had all the money I’ve spent over the years trying to control cheat grass on our farm. Cheat grass has been a problematic weed in winter wheat production for as long as anyone can remember. My grandfather and father were battling cheat grass when I was a young boy starting out farming. We were conventionally tilling our ground in a winter wheat/summer fallow cropping rotation. Dad would use a stubble mulch farming practice to maintain more residues on the soil surface. This would usually involve a couple of early season disking of t...

The boys took the title with 142 points to top runner-up Mitchell (112.5) by nearly 30 points. In the girls competition, Sidney (116...

  • One tough inning knocks Peetz from state tourney

    Stephen McKay|May 12, 2014

    Jumping out to a 6-1 lead in the Class 1A 2014 CHSAA State Baseball Championships at All-Star Park in Lakewood, Colorado Saturday, Peetz had plenty of reason to feel optimistic about moving on. But then the fourth inning happened. Powered by five runs in the bottom of the fourth, the Dove Creek Bulldogs turned back the local 'Dogs in a first-round game 9-7. Although he held Dove Creek hitless through two innings and scoreless through three, Bradey Holtz was removed during a shaky fourth. Cody...
