Sheridan suspends lawn watering

SHERIDAN - On Sunday July 15, the Sheridan Public Works Director Curtis Green contacted Mayor Bob Stump to inform him that the potable water storage tank level had dropped to a critical level.

The storage tank was barely half full and that level would be inadequate to support any structure firefighting efforts in the town.

Healthcare Foundation charts course for Sheridan real estate donations

SHERIDAN—At the end of May, the Ruby Valley Healthcare Foundation received the deeds to two properties in downtown Sheridan, an enormous donation in support of the Ruby Valley Hospital and the larger community. It was a transfer that had been in the works since the fall of 2017, says Foundation President Les Gilman.

What’s the buzz?

ENNIS—When Esther Warburton left her home to run some errands on Thursday, July 12, there wasn’t a bee in sight.

By later that afternoon, a huge hive had built itself in the tree in her front yard. 

“When I left I didn’t hear a thing,” she says. “And when I came back a couple hours later, the whole tree was buzzing.”
