Beating the heat

Shea Daniels attempts to block the sun with her lemonade stand sign Thursday while selling the popular summertime refreshment along Highway 59 with Kyrra Lindberg as midday temperatures topped 90 degrees.

Gillette has been feeling the heat this week with temperatures spiking in the high 90s, which helps convince 12-year-old Khyler Cowley to visit the Gillette City Pool regularly.

"I come here, like, two or three times a week," Cowley said Thursday afternoon. "I like the hot weather though. I'm from North Dakota, I don't like the cold."
