Grant funds early education initiative (posted 11/12/19)
Sublette County School District #1
Sublette School District #1 and Sublette BOCES began a collaboration that provides the community with an Early Childhood Community Liaison for this year. The vision was to use the Early Childhood Community Liaison to build partnerships with the pre-schools, community members, Sublette County School District #1, and families to help children be ready for Kindergarten.

The District hired Tamara Currah to serve as the Liaison. Tamara is a National Board Certified Early Childhood educator with many years of experience teaching in kindergarten and 1st grade. She has also taught as an early childhood educator in Pinedale. Her efforts this year will be dedicated to working with all of the preschools, families, and the community to help children get ready for school.

Recently, the District received a grant from the State Department of Education to help Tamara do more to help the pre-schools and parents. The grant will provide an additional $30,000 to assist with several activities. In the spring, there are plans for an Early Childhood Expo where parents will be able to discover the services available to them. It will also be a celebration of the young child. Tamara is also working with Jennifer Zook of the Wyoming Early Learning Professional Development Community to put on a free professional development conference for teachers in Pinedale. An important aspect of the grant work will be to reach out to families and provide them with free reading and math materials that can be used in their homes. Grant funds will also be used to provide free programs for preschool kids and their parents. These programs will be available in December in one of the Sublette BOCES rooms.

It is a goal of Sublette BOCES and Sublette County School District #1 to reach out to every family to help them prepare their kids for school success as soon as they start kindergarten. Every family should choose their own approach to raising their children but that doesn’t mean they have to do it all by themselves. Early education is a very important part of our lives and the recent initiatives should help Pinedale become a leader in the region.

__________________________

A Bit of History: The Phillips-Edwards Post 47 of the American Legion was named in the honor of two men from Pinedale who were killed in action in France during World War I. Clifford Phillips was killed by a sniper in 1918. He is buried in France. Sydney Edwards was in a hospital recovering from an attack of appendicitis in 1918 when the hospital was shelled by an airplane and he was killed. His body was exhumed from its initial grave in France and he was brought back to Pinedale and reinterred in the Pinedale Cemetery in 1921.

Animal|Totem Invitational Exhibition in Pinedale (posted 11/11/19)
Opening Reception Nov. 14
David Klaren, Mystery Print Gallery
Mystery Print Gallery in Pinedale, Wyoming invites you to our holiday exhibition, Animal|Totem, an invitational exhibit of small works, from November 14 – December 28, with an opening reception on Thursday, November 14th from 5-8pm.

Spinning off from last years’ very popular and successful Animal|Shelter exhibit, this year we are exploring the theme of animal totems.

Animals have been represented in paintings and sculptures since man’s earliest visual works on cave walls in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and the Americas. In many instances, animal imagery has been used to harness, co-opt, or identify with the traits of a specific animal. Tribal cultures carve animal masks used in ceremonies, many believing they become that animal through transformation, during the ceremony itself. Humans have, and still do, demark periods of time through the Chinese Calendar and the Zodiac with animal symbols, believing that a person born in that particular year, or under that particular sign, imbues them with certain personality traits. Shields, flags, and other heraldry are emblazoned lions, wolves, eagles and other animals, including fantastical beasts such as dragons, gryphons or thunderbirds. We use animals every day to convey the spirit of what we make, or sell, or do; the swiftness of the impala, the wild strength of the mustang, or the quiet elegance of a jaguar.

I invited a group of contemporary artists whose work I find fresh and interesting to explore the theme of animal totems in fun and thoughtful ways. The hope being, that the artists are provided an opportunity to explore ideas, materials, or processes that they may normally not use in their day to day studio practice.

Their work could be based in reality, the fantastical, or the mythological. The work could be serious or humorous. It could be fun, funky, science fictional, intellectual, minimal, environmental, or any other adjective you may choose.

This is considered a small works exhibit, which allows a broader spectrum of artists and works to be presented, as well as a selection of reasonably priced artworks for going into the holiday season.

The artists invited to provide work for this exhibition include:
Christopher Amend – Gillette, WY
Richard Burke – Pinedale, WY
Jenny Dowd – Alpine, WY
Sam Dowd – Alpine, WY
Holland Dutton – Pinedale, WY
Camellia El-Antably – Cheyenne, WY
Lea Hardy – Laramie, WY
Margaret Haydon – Laramie, WY
Favian Hernandez – Laramie, WY
Jun Ishida – Brooklyn, NY

Special Film Screening of ‘The Story of Project Wagon Wheel’ on Nov. 18
On Monday, November 18th, the public is invited to a special film screening of the Wyoming PBS documentary, "Atomic Fracking in Wyoming: The Story of Project Wagon Wheel ." There will be two showings, at 1PM and 6PM in the Lovatt Room of the Pinedale Library. This is a new Wyoming PBS documentary about the Project Wagon Wheel. It will feature interviews with local residents involved. The film is rated G and is approximately 1 hour. Local historian and author Ann Chambers Noble will be present at both screenings to speak about the Wagon Wheel Project and the film. Prior to the 6PM screening, a light meal will be provided free of charge at 5:30 pm. Panel discussion with the filmmaker Gregory Asay, Ann Chambers Noble, and local participants with the film will follow the screening.

Background
In 1968, an area 10 miles south of Boulder (18 miles east-northeast of Big Piney) and 9,220 feet underground was proposed to be exploded by five nuclear bombs to release natural gas trapped in layers of sandstone. Known as Project Wagon Wheel, it was designed as an experiment to study the effectiveness of using nuclear power to extract natural gas. It was estimated that the five bombs would create a blast 25 times greater than the explosion that destroyed Hiroshima. Citizens from Sublette County and surrounding areas formed a local committee to research the effects of the project on residents and to bring their concerns to area lawmakers and eventually the nation's capitol.

Atomic Fracking in Wyoming: The Story of Project Wagon Wheel is a new documentary about the defeat of the project by local residents. The documentary will air on Wyoming PBS on November 19th. It tells the complete story through interviews with Bernie Gosar, Jim Noble and others, as well as the voices of key people involved such as Sally Mackey, John Perry Barlow, Floyd Bousman, Mary Ann Steele, and more. Sublette County citizens can preview the film in its entirety during two opportunities at the Pinedale Library on Monday, November 18th: at 1 pm and again at 6 pm. Local historian and author Ann Chambers Noble will be present at both screenings to speak about the Wagon Wheel Project and the film.
