From the Feb. 13, 1941 News Record:
Highway patrolmen in this district were searching last weekend for a man driving a 1940 or 1941 Cadillac coupe with Idaho license plates who nearly wrecked a state highway car driven by E.C. Morgan, about midnight Thursday near Newcastle. Morgan, according to the reports, took the keys from the man’s car after he appeared to be drinking heavily. The stranger apparently had another set of keys, for he was able to start his machine. Patrolman Morgan tried to stop him, but just managed to get out of the way. Morgan then gave chase, but each time he pulled along-side the fleeing car, the man tried to run him into the ditch. The patrolman stopped to telephone Gillette officers to head off the culprit, but was met a short time later near Moorcroft by Sheriff Tex Martin and Deputy Sheriff John Mulder. The man had escaped somewhere between Osage and Newcastle. The patrolman fired at the tires of the fleeing car, suspected of being involved in a recent holdup at Midwest, but failed to stop it.
From the Feb. 10, 1955 News Record:
A petrified rock formation, declared by geologists to be a dinosaur egg, has been on display at the county sheriff’s office for the past 10 days. Sheriff Ted Holdeman said that N.A. Worman, local trucker of Gillette, brought the prehistoric specimen to his office for public viewing. Already a school group and many people have seen it there. The rock formation is like a round ball broken exactly in half. It is about 8 inches in diameter and has a dark colored outer rim, which could have been the shell to the egg. This is immediately followed by a reddish colored rock, which would represent the yolk. Inside this is a snail shaped, dark yellowish object that geologists claim is the forming dinosaur in the egg.
From the Feb. 13, 1964 News Record:
A perfect hand in cribbage is hard to experience since only four cards are held in the player’s hand and the fifth must be turned up on the deck to make the perfect combination. But Frank Butler enjoyed this rare experience in a game with C.P. McClelland, Rex Niswender and Carl Persson last week at the Eagle’s lodge. Butler held three fives and the jack of hearts in his hand. In order to make the maximum of 29 points (product of the perfect hands) the five of hearts had to turn up on the deck. It did.
