From the Dec. 15, 1916 Gillette News:
Wyatt, the 10-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. J.Y. Lucas, residing in the southeast part of the county, met with an accident one day last week which terminated in his death last Saturday. The little fellow had saddled up his horse preparatory to starting for school. The weather was rather cold and the horse, evidently in a playful mood, started kicking and jumping about and in kicking, one of its hoofs struck the boy in the forehead, badly bruising him and rendering him unconscious. A doctor was called from Moorcroft, but his treatment failed results and when this was noted, other physicians were sent for but before their arrival death had relieved the little fellow of his sufferings.
From the Dec. 6, 1928 News Record:
With the barrel of a German luger pointing at her and the command “fork over the change” ringing in her ears, Mrs. Sherard, who was on duty in the dining room of the Sage Cafe, was forced to give up the contents of a cash register to a solitary hold-up man who entered the cafe about 1:30 o’clock on Wednesday morning. The loot amounted to $15.60, the bandit overlooking another cash register in the front part of the cafe. At the time of the hold-up there were only two employees on duty, Mrs. Sherard and Mrs. Newland, who at the time was in the kitchen. Geo. Firestone was seated at the long lunch counter eating a midnight lunch. The robber entered and pausing to make a passing remark to Firestone. Mrs. Sherard came in from the kitchen and approaching the unknown man asked him what he would have. It was then that he drew his revolver and told her to “fork over the change.” The intruder disappeared after telling both Mrs. Sherard and Mr. Firestone not to make a move for 30 minutes.
From the Dec. 20, 1935 News Record:
Death yesterday ended the career of one of Campbell County’s best known and most highly esteemed citizens, John A. Osborne. News of his death brought sadness to the whole community and disheartened holiday preparations. He was making a motor trip to the southern part of the county yesterday morning, his car becoming stalled in a snowdrift and being unable to free the car alone he walked to the Kenneth Harrod ranch, about one-half mile north. Lonnie Harrod and Harry Goerke were accompanying him back to the car when he suddenly stopped, told the boys he couldn’t go any farther and collapsed. A heart attack is given the cause of his demise.
