From the Dec. 20, 1934 News Record:
Sheriff Tex Martin made a trip last week to Texas and brought Claude Moore back to face charges that connected him with the operations late last summer of a wool theft ring. Moore is now an inmate in the county jail in Sundance, having waived extradition from Texas. He had been at liberty since the latter part of September when he escaped from the county jail here in company with Tom Rich, who is still at large. Moore was staying at the home of his uncle Pete Enis in Justin, Texas. Sheriff Martin wired to authorities there to arrest him last Thursday and started immediately after the fugitive. Moore’s case, which should have been tried in October in district court, will probably be heard in February at the spring term.
From the Dec. 23, 1982 Campbell County Record:
Gillette bicycle riders may some day have a system of bike lanes allowing them to travel without danger from cars. The city Council on Monday night selected Joseph A. Racine and Associates, a local planning firm, to prepare a bikeway master plan for the city. The city parks and beautification board has identified a bicycle path system as one of its long-range projects. The master plan will help the city determine where paths would best be utilized, said Karin Cyrus-Strid, director of the Gillette Parks Department. Existing streets and drainage ways will be studied and ranked as potential bike paths, Cyrus-Strid said.
From the Dec. 1, 1921 News Record:
Charles Yarroll, of Spokane and other places, paid a visit to Gillette last week, and shortly after the Thanksgiving day fire he left town, which didn’t attract any vast amount of attention. About that time Lew Jenne missed some of the working tools of his profession, among them being a gun, a pair of bracelets of the handcuff type and some other trinkets. No clue as to the whereabouts of the missing articles was obtained until the Sheridan papers printed a story of how two vagrants had robbed a third member of their party, in a box car traveling west on the other side of Sheridan. Yarrol fell in with a pair of buddies of his profession and confided to them how he had fell heir to the trophies he carried. The pair concluded that since he had carried stolen property they had as good a claim to it as he did, and they proceeded to slug their new found friend and appropriate the said property. Yarroll reported the “robbery” and the men were apprehended. At their hearing it was brought out that the articles were originally “lifted” in Gillette and the authorities were notified. Deputy Jenne brought Yarrol to Gillette, and he has admitted his guilt, and when Judge Ilsley visits Gillette, he will probably be sent down to the state hotel for the holidays.
