Hospital Facility Master


Plan suggestions revealed

by Chandler Smith
Tim Casey, Vice President of Architecture at
the Erdman planning rm, revealed the rms
rst suggestions for the Hospital Facility Master Plan during Monday nights public meeting.
The presentation itself lasted only a mere
fteen minutes, while the question and answer
portion consisted of an hour of pertinent questions from the audience, mostly about the plans
themselves.
The plans revealed were
drawn from extensive analysis
of the market environment in Hot
Springs County,
Casey said. Facilities would be added or renovated
according to forecasted need in the community as the countys
population is predicted to remain fairly homogenous in the coming decades.
Casey predicted the hospital facility, as per
studies mentioned above, would need nearly
58,000 square feet to be able to support and
care for Hot Springs aging population. The current hospital is around 43,000 square feet and
was drawn out and constructed almost 50 years
ago when both medical practices and the needs
of the countys citizens were vastly different.
One of the foremost differences between the
last Building Master Plan and Erdmans new
suggestions is the expansion and rehabilitation
of the inpatient services provided by the hospital, which are predicted to become a crucial
service in the future.
Casey rst provided the audiences with

rough plans, which the Vice President of Architecture stressed many times were indeed only
initial plans, for three massing studies, then
three concept studies. Each one of the massing
studies more or less mirrored plans drawn for
the concept studies.
The plans fall into three categories: building
over the existing hospital, rehabilitating existing facilities and remodeling on the hospital
grounds and vacating the road
adjacent to the
hospital to expand the facility onto hospital
deeded land to
the south of the
present facility.
As is expected, some of the
plans are more
feasible than others. Casey, for instance, noted that dividing up the current hospital space
and re-purposing facilities due to current and
future needs as suggested in Massing Study #2
would be, very, very expensive, and he was
not sure the plan would be reasonable.
Concept Study A suggested a new facility
that would be built onto the current hospital.
This plan, like plan B, involves vacating the portion of East Arapahoe Road that runs alongside
the south side of the hospital, involves moving
some homes across the street from the present
facility. Casey noted that, A lot of thought was
put into these [plans], but there is not much
data about feasibility of construction and vacating the road.
Concept Study B suggested plans for vacating a portion of East Arapahoe and build-

ing an extension onto the current facility that


would sufce for the rms future predictions
of necessary facilities. Parking, along with an
emergency room, surgery and imaging facilities
would be built over and across East Arapahoe
into land currently deeded to the hospital. Facilities in the present hospital would be rearranged and expanded to make the facility as
a whole more efcient.
Concept Study C, which involved building facilities onto the hospital and utilizing almost all
of the current hospital grounds, was seemingly
dismissed by Casey and the audience alike during the presentation and question and answer
portions. The plan, which would build an almost
entirely new facility, would be a construction
nightmare. Its going to be noisy and its going
to be dusty [during construction], Casey said,
highlighting the fact that the present facility
must remain open and functional during any
construction process. Concept C would also be
the most expensive and congested, which raised
numerous concerns.
To wrap up his presentation, Casey noted
that extensive studies have to be done to assure
feasibility of suggested plans. Thats whats
fun about this, he said, Theres a lot of what
ifs and ip-ops.
Hospital CEO Robin Roling hoped that hospital board members would be able to narrow
down a suggested course of action at their December 16 board meeting. It is worth noting
that even when a specic plan is chosen, it is
only the rst step of hospital renovation. Plans
presented, although well thought out, were very
basic, and extensive studies will be undertaken
that will shape the facility according to input
from Erdman, hospital staff, the hospital board
of directors and community members.

The 15th annual Christmas Tree Festival raised over


$20,000 Dec. 3 for the Thermopolis Community Fund.
The festival, held at the Wyoming Dinosaur Center for the
second consecutive year, was
well attended.
Auctioneer Gary Nash was
in charge of auctioning off the
trees and wreaths.
The bidding action was fast
and furious Thursday night as
community members bid on
trees with titles like Wooly Winter Wonderland and Have a
Very Merry Bobcat Christmas.
Thermopolis Hardware, Red
Rock Family Practice and Mortimore Funeral Home were some
of the most frequent bidders of
the night, with a dozen trees
purchased between the three
groups.
The most touching moment of
the night came late in the bidding, when a special tree decorated by the Wyoming Dinosaur
Center and entitled A Tribute
to Glenda Ramsey, was purchased then donated to Brenna
Rankins family.
Ramsey recently passed away
after ghting a long battle with
cancer.
Brenna is a young community
member who is suffering from
a rare form cancer. The Make
a Wish Foundation is sending
Brenna to Walt Disney World,
and those in attendance Thursday night donated over $4,000
for Brenna and her family to
enjoy their very special trip to
Florida.

Travel and Tourism


hears from Booster
Club about 3-on-3

by Durward D. Jones
The Travel and Tourism
Board met for an all day session Tuesday. The rst part
of the day involved a work
session in which many issues were addressed and resolved. At 2 p.m. the board
began their regular monthly
meeting.
The meeting focused largely on the 3-on-3 tournament.
Guests Ernie Mecca and
Brandon Deromedi from the
Booster Club discussed the
club taking over the tournament and plans for the future.
The Booster Clubs plan is
to utilize the school grounds
and clubs to put on the annual tournament. After the
decline in numbers and
struggles with a negative atmosphere the chamber felt it
was time for a change.
Mecca and Deromedi feel
the club will be able to take
over the event and make it
a success. Setting up in the
parking lots around the high
school and utilizing coaching staff from the county and
neighboring counties, it will
become a cleaner tournament
and more of a family fun
event. Also, letting local vendors in to support the event
will keep most of the money

within the community. The


tournament will have a new
identity and will be a better,
quality event.
Following the discussion
over 3-on-3, the board moved
on to the rest of the meeting. Under new business the
board talked about updating
a couple of billboards. They
voted in favor for the update
of one billboard outside of
Worland and it will have a
dinosaur theme.
Under the directors report,
Amanda Moeller reported
she was working with the
company that is making a
tourism app for the county
it should be completed and
ready by May.
Moeller mentioned there
have been some issues with
the Keys to the City promotion. Some local residents
have obtained the keys and
have been demanding a discount from local stores, which
are not participating in the
program. The Keys to the City
promotion is designed for
tourists to encourage them to
visit local retailers. Moeller
reported overall the promotion is going well.
The next meeting of the
Travel and Tourism Board
will be January 19, 2016.

Thermopolis, along with refreshments, make it
and take it art ornaments and demonstrations.
New artist Paul Bleicher, of Ten Sleep, has
been carving cottonwood bark for the past twelve
years. Because each piece of bark is unique, no
two carvings are the same. All of his pieces are
hand carved with a variety of knives and chisels.
While Bleicher has carved many things, he tends
to focus on whimsical houses, Santas, and sh.
Sherry Stottler, of Worland, enrolled in a oneday pastel class and that is all it took to create
a passion and a purpose upon her retirement as
a Presbyterian minister. Stottler has taken several workshops since then and continues to love
the absorbing and stimulating feeling she gets as
she approaches a blank sheet of sanded paper.
Jeanette Porter, of Worland, learned to do dough
ornaments from a friend while living in Kenai,
Alaska. Porter says dough art is fun and therapeutic. Porter is now teaching her art to Kristin
Buckman, of Worland. They will have their dough
ornaments on display.
Diana Scranton, of Worland, will also be displaying beadwork including bracelets, necklaces and
earrings. Scranton stopped doing beadwork and
for many years she collected a variety of beads to
use in the future. She now has several creations
available.

hand carved wooden caricatures. New artists Tracy Linko and Susan Linko will also join the show.

work. She creates and designs earrings and bracelets. She will be demonstrating her jewelry and

will custom make jewelry for strollers.


Belinda Daugherty, of Ten Sleep, will be offering variety in multimedia.
Phyllis Baker will feature her handmade goose
egg ornaments. The ornaments will be sold as
a fundraiser for the Hot Springs County Museum. The museum staff has many ideas for improving displays, like the Hot Springs State Park section. One of their goals is to raise money to make
the needed changes in time for the 100th Year of
the Buffalo in Hot Springs State Park.
Timothy T. Wesaw and Kelli A. Wesaw from Ft.
Washakie will have ne art Christmas gifts and
ornaments for sale.

Thermopolis

by Bryan Golden
Among other things, the holidays are a time of
giving and receiving gifts. The question most often asked of people is, "what did you get?" Much
less frequently asked is, "what did you give?" Invariably, the inquiries concern material gifts.
Purchasing a gift can certainly be thoughtful
and a wonderful gesture, especially when it's
backed up by your actions.
However, the most valuable presents are those
that aren't sold in stores. When you give your
love, your time, help someone in need, aid another in solving a problem or overcoming an obstacle, you give something priceless.
The true spirit of the holidays is giving. When
you give, you receive. You can get anything in
life you want by helping enough others get what
they want. But only if you give without expecting
anything in return. The impact of giving isn't
limited to just the holiday season, it's something
that has value all year.
The power of giving is often underestimated.
When you give unconditionally, you don't just
impact the recipient; you start a chain reaction.
By brightening the life of one person you also
affect all those who they then touch.
No gesture of giving or kindness is too small.
Holding the door open at a store, helping someone carry groceries to their car, letting another car in front of you, saying please and thank
you, and saying hello to a stranger you pass on
the sidewalk, are some of the many things you
can do daily.
For family and friends, your time is one of
the most precious gifts you can offer. Are you
there for others when they need you? Do you offer a hand without being asked? Do you help out
when asked?
Too often, people get caught up in their own
desires, thus losing sight of the needs of others.
A person who tries to get through life by looking
out for himself or herself first is invariably frustrated. Often this person views life as a competition to determine who can accumulate more.
On the other hand, those who are concerned for
the well being of others are happier, more content,
and more satisfied. By giving without expecting,
they in turn receive the things they need.
Giving is a simple concept that works every
time it is applied. There will be people who don't
appreciate what you do, but it doesn't matter. You
are giving without anticipating anything in return. Besides, there will be many more who are
thankful for your efforts.
If you don't treat others well, buying a gift
won't compensate for your behavior. The recipient
might like what you give them but it won't make
up for your actions. You can't bribe someone to
forgive the way you treat them with a present.
The best gift you can receive is the joy of making someone else happy. Being unselfish is a
wonderful way to live. When you give with no
ulterior motives, your actions are seen as genuine. Should you expect something in return, your
behavior is always suspect. We all know people
who do nice things only when they want something in return.
Make giving a daily routine. Don't start and
end with the holiday season. Every day is a good
day to do something nice. When people feel good
due to your actions, you can't help but feel happy yourself. And that is priceless. The most significant action you can take is having a positive
impact on the lives of others.

Glenda Ramsey

Glenda A. Ramsey, 61, succumbed to cancer Saturday, December 5, 2015, at 9:00 p.m. She fought valiantly to the end. When her
Master called, she closed her eyes and went home.
Glenda was born in Billings, Mont. on March 16, 1954. She attended public schools there and graduated from Billings Senior
High School in 1972. She served as a short-term missionary in
both Honduras and in Guatemala. She graduated from Montana
Institute of the Bible with an Associates Degree in 1976. During
that time she met and fell in love with Lonny Ramsey. The couple married on July 2, 1977, and moved to Thermopolis to make their home. On June 17, 1978,
Stepheny Robin blessed Glenda and Lonny with
her birth and on April 25, 1980, Audra Michelle
blessed the family with her birth.
After a few years, they moved to Bismarck, N.D.
There the girls started school. Two years later
they moved to Billings. The girls graduated from
high school there. In Billings, Glenda began her
art career and developed her music. Her email
name was Bluegrass Artist, indicating her great
talents. The couple always continued to be active in their church.
In 2004, Lonny and Glenda moved to Jacksonville, Fla. to be near
their only and beloved granddaughter Camille. They lived there eight
years. They returned to Thermopolis, Wyo. to care for Lonnys mom
and remained there. From about the age of nine years old, Glenda
loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and sought opportunities
to serve Him. She was an encouragement and guide to those God
sent her way. She will be missed by many, especially her family.
Glenda is survived by her husband, Lonny, of 38 years; daughters, Stepheny (Darren) Butcher of Thermopolis and Audra Elliott
of Jacksonville, Fla.; granddaughter Camille Elliott of Jacksonville, Fla.; mother JoeDee Shellenberger of Billings, Mont., sister Sherry (Bob) Swanson of Cody, Wyo.; brother Dennis (Jeanie)
Shellenberger of Reed Point, Mont., nephews Jeremiah, Jonathon,
Jeffrey; and niece Brittany.

Dr. Brock Anderson thought about staying in California after finishing
his training. But he chose to return to Casper and to Wyoming Medical
Center, where he grew up and where his father is a surgeon. Brock
knew firsthand that the doctors at Wyoming Medical Center are as good
as any in a big city. When he or a loved one needs surgery, they can
go anywhere. But they choose to come to Wyoming Medical Center.
Everything we do, including providing the best surgical care, is

Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commissions (Commission) Procedural Rules and Special Regulations, notice is hereby given of the application of Rocky Mountain Power (RMP or the
Company), to modify Rule 12 and cancel Schedule
Nos. 71 and 94.
RMP is a public utility as dened in W.S. 371-101(a)(vi)(C), subject to the Commissions jurisdiction pursuant to W.S. 37-2-112.
On November 20, 2015, RMP led its application requesting authority to modify Rule 12 (Line
Extension Policy), cancel Schedule No. 71 (Energy
Exchange Program), and cancel Schedule No. 94
(Demand Side Management Credit).
RMP states its proposal is to modify Rule 12
to allow customers the option to provide an additional form of non-cash security from a surety
or nancial institution, which can be irrevocable
letters of credit. The modied language will allow the customer three options: i] pay the cash
advance, ii] obtain a bond, or iii] obtain letters of
credit. This will allow for additional exibility to
customers that need a network upgrade. Schedule 71 is proposed to be canceled because of low
customer participation and Schedule 94 is proposed to be canceled because the one-time credit
beginning on February 1, 2015, was completed by
March 31, 2015. RMP requests an effective date
of January 1, 2016.

in this notice shall be construed as relieving the


Contractor and the Sureties on its bond from any
claim or claims for the work or labor done or materials or supplies furnished in the execution of
the Agreement. All persons having claims for labor and materials furnished the Contractor shall
present a veried statement of the amount due
and unpaid on account of the same to the District
prior to the day specied for nal payment. Failure on the part of the claimant to le each statement will relieve the District from any and all liability on such claim.

Pride to dene boys


basketball this season

basketball team has been practicing hard for their season opener Friday.

by Chandler Smith
The Hot Springs County High School Bobcats
basketball team will head to Wright for the Coal
Miners Classic this Friday, marking both the start
of the 2015-2016 season as well as the rst game
of coach Kevin Gerbers run at the helm of the varsity team.
Coach Kevin Gerber noted that his teams excitement for the beginning of the season is matched by his
own anticipation: Honestly, its awesome, he said.
This is my fth year coaching, my rst year taking over as varsity coach, he added. The energy
is as high as Ive ever seen it. Its been incredible.
Gerber said his team has been practicing hard
all week in preparation for their tournaments this
weekend.
We do a drill called pride drill. Its my favorite;
its a really high energy, fast-paced little drill, he
said, adding that the name of the drill, pride, is what
he hopes this season will be all about. To me, it is
what our team will signify. The fact that it is called
pride is really important to me.
Gerber has another single word to describe his
defense: chaos. Its a y around, sprint defense that
is hopefully going to cause chaos and really get the
other team turning the ball over. Defense is a huge
thing were talking about.
Although this season will mark Gerbers rst as

head coach, he was able to work with current seniors


on the team while they were playing on the freshman
team. There are six seniors and four juniors on the
varsity roster this season, which makes this team
the most seasoned with which Gerber has worked.
Theres a lot of experience, and theyve been playing together a lot, Gerber said of the upper classmen on this years team. You can see the chemistry on the court.
The chemistry is also due to the fact that the
team only graduated two seniors last year, one of
whom was a starter.
The varsity and junior varsity teams will both
be competing in this weekends Coal Miners Classic. The freshman team will travel to Lovell to compete in their rst games this Friday and Saturday.
Varsity players returning for their nal season
are seniors Grant Byrd, Dominic Jensen, Tyler Cornwell, Michael Meier, Cameron Igou and Eric Herold.
Juniors are Jake Maksin, William DeVries,
Keegan Robbins and Logan Bartholomew.
Hudson Roling and Noah Schwalbe are the only
underclassmen both sophomores, on the team.
The junior varsity team is comprised of juniors
Ryan Johnson, Brett Nicodemus, Trey Davis, Alex
Jensen, Josh Burrows and Cameron Burrows. Sophomores Liam Whitt, Strite Daniels, Clemens Abbott
and Cade Zupan are also on the team.

Lady Cats open at Glenrock

by Durward D. Jones
The Lady Cats are heading
into basketball season by gearing up for their rst tournament Friday and Saturday in
Glenrock.
With just a few weeks of practice under their belt, Coach Cory
Sova has twenty-four girls for
the varsity, junior varsity and
freshman teams.
The Lady Cats lost six seniors
to graduation who played a signicant role for the cats last year.

After getting beat in overtime in the seminals at state


last year, Sova has a plan. We
will spend the rst half of the
year looking at different combinations on the oor and getting
everyone varsity experience,
he said.
Boasting on the skills the girls
have and the leadership of the
seniors, Sova said the teams may
be small but they are quick.
Many of the younger girls who
improved over the last season,

put in some time and effort in


the gym and have demonstrated improvement this summer.
Sova remarked We will have
a to play extremely hard and
get better during every drill as
there are a number of very good
2A teams this year.
Returning for their last year,
senior players on the varsity
team are Jessica Schierkolk,
Randi Elisson, Melissa Ward,
and Janell Harvey.
The juniors are Lizzy Lonk,

Jules Ward, Ashlynn Weber,


Makayla George, Korey Smith.

Even missing a couple of their
peers, Tyson Tobar and Mike
Wilkinson, they seemed ready
to take on the task of making
Bobcat wrestling a force to be
reckoned with in the future.
The major challenge for the
coaching staff this season will be
to channel the youthful enthusiasm into sound and aggressive
technique coupled with the hard,
exhausting work of wrestling.
With the absence of the traditional Bobcat Invitational this
year, there will be only two home
appearances for the Bobcats.
Early February will see them
in action in a Quadrangle with
Worland, Lovell and Douglas.
The following week Lovell visits.
Seven tournaments are on the
schedule before the regional at
Rocky Mountain and the state
at Casper.
Leading off the competition is
the Powell Invitational on Friday and Saturday. A dual with
Greybull on Dec. 17, and Worlands Battle of the Big Horns
follows on De. 18-19. Competition will then resume after the
new year dawns.

Jessica Schierkolk named to All-State Band


by Chandler Smith
Hot Springs County High School senior
Jessica Schierkolk has been named to the
Wyoming State band, becoming the rst
HSCHS student in eight years to receive the
prestigious honor.
Schierkolk started playing trumpet eight
years ago and has been playing with teacher
Dustin Olsen the entire time.
The talented trumpet player practiced her
audition piece daily for the months leading
up her audition and beat out over 280 other
players to be named one of the 19 trumpets
on the ensemble.
When he [Olsen] initially told me, I was in
basketball practice. He walked in and I saw
him, and we were doing dribbling drills. He
looked really upset, so I was like, oh crap,
He seriously looked mad, so I went over
and talked to him and he raised his hand,
and I dont even remember what he said,
Schierkolk remembered.
Congratulations, Olsen reminded her.

I almost cried, I jumped around and


hugged him, Schierkolk continued. To be
honest, Id rather make All-State in trumpet
than state in basketball.
Schierkolks years of hard work have paid
off. I feel really accomplished, she said, noting that she worked with Olsen every day
for over an hour just for her audition, even
through the countys rst power outage of
the winter.
Once shes chosen, thats the hardest part.
Now you just work really hard on the music
and have it prepared. The competition part
is essentially over, said Olsen. Around 200
people have been named to the ensemble.
When asked what was next, Olsen said,
Now we wait for music. It should come in next
week. One the music arrives, Schierkolk will
spend all of her free time studying it before
the ensemble gathers in Cheyenne.
Once in Cheyenne with the entire ensemble, Schierkolk will again have to prove her
talent. In the trumpets, there are three dif-

ferent parts, she said. Ill have to do a chair


placement within the second trumpets to decide which seat Im in. Then, once seats are
gured out, the ensemble will practice for
their January 19 concert.
The Hot Springs senior has enlisted in the
Army and will serve after graduation, but
that will not end her trumpet playing career.
I was thinking about playing after I serve
a tour, to see if I can get into the band, she
said. I feel like I personally excel in music,
so I would like to make a career in it, she
said of her post-Army plans.
The band is open to all Wyoming high school
students from grades 9-12. All participants
have to travel to a designated location to record an anonymous audition, which then gets
reviewed by judges. Almost a month after auditions are nished, nalists are contacted.
The ensembles performance is scheduled
for January 19 at 7:30 p.m. at Cheyenne
South High School. The program is run by the
Wyoming High School Activities Association.

Fourth graders pitch in


to clean RWE cafeteria

by Chandler Smith
Ralph Witters Elementary students Mason Reese, Chase Herring, and William Coale for years
have had one desire when it comes to lunch time
in the schools cafeteria: to help custodian Ann Peterson clean up.
Although it may sound strange that fourth graders are eagerly willing to clean up after themselves,
Peterson said that Reese, Herring and Coale have
been asking for years to pitch in during cleanup.
Since last year theyve been trying to help me,
and I wouldnt let them, Peterson said. Then [Herring and Reese] approached me again this year and
I said okay Theyre fourth graders now, and I
gured at fourth grade they should be old enough
and mature enough [to help], she added.
When Reese and Herring were asked why they
wanted to help, Reese said he started eating alone
and saw Peterson cleaning. I thought it would be,
he started to say, when Herring added, helpful.
The idea took off when fellow students saw Reese
helping clean after lunch one day. I just started
and a couple of my friends started, Reese said.
Whoever can help gets to help, but there can
only be eight, Herring said. It was clear for the
activity in the room that cleaning was an enviable
position. Boys and girls from the fourth grade were
wiping tables, sweeping oors, removing black

scuff marks from the oor, mopping and taking


out the trash.
Me and Mason usually take out the trash,
Herring said. It became clear that Herring and
Reese were the ringleaders of the operations when
Herring offered, Sometimes me and Mason stay
a little bit longer. Yeah, Mason added, we stay
a little bit longer. We just wait until our teachers
come, he said.
When asked if her job had become easier after
the fourth graders volunteered to help, Peterson
said, I enjoy seeing it. I kind of think that maybe
what Ive tried to teach them over the years has
rubbed off enough. Like, as Mason said, its not
fair to you, were making the mess. I told him,
its my job.
I appreciate the guys helping, she said. They
kind of have the basics down. I think just from
watching me.
Before the gang of fourth graders volunteered to
help, Peterson was in charge of every job by herself. Now, she still cleans alongside the kids, but
largely oversees the hectic and noisy operation.
Its a little chaotic sometimes, Reese admitted.
But even if it is chaotic, Peterson is encouraging
the fourth grade students an important lesson: responsibility. Everyone can agree that is a crucial
part of any wholesome education.

Hospital excited to receive


two fetal heart monitors

by Chandler Smith
RoxAnne Arnett, obstetrics
lead nurse, surprised the Hot
Springs community during a
Chamber Meet and Greet with
the presentation of not just one,
but two fetal heart monitors.
The monitors, which enable
nurses to monitor the heartbeat of
an unborn child, were purchased
with matching funds from the
Hospital Foundation Board and
the greater Hot Springs County
community. The Hospital Foundation board challenged the community in October of last year to
raise half of the $30,000 necessary
for the monitor.
The community and almost all
Includes Table & 4 Chairs
of the
staff at the hospital had no
idea that the money raised would
be able to afford two of the stateof-the-art monitors. It wasnt until we were able to make the purchase, so when we got the quote
back, the quote
$ was right on target
and well take two. Weve got the
money, Arnett said. The decision
was
universally
agreed upon and

the purchase was made at the beginning of September.
