A Look Back in Time: Dec. 29, 1919

Now here's Sheridan Media's look back in time, to 100 years ago, by reporter Pat Blair as published in the Sheridan Enterprise newspaper on Dec. 29, 1919.


The Sheridan County Electric Company submitted a proposition to the city council this morning for the installation of 66 ornamental light posts on Main street between Dow and Burkitt streets. Cost is estimated at just over $9,200, and the council decided to defer consideration until the annual budget is formulated.

The Sheridan Sugar Company has announced the factory will reopen on Jan. 2. Between 5,000 and 6,000 tons of beets remain to be sliced before the campaign for this season will be concluded.

Tarlton B. Snead, who ranches near Clearmont, is a visitor in Sheridan today.
