A Look Back in Time: January 5, 1921

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 Jan. 5, 1921.

Mayor M. B. Camplin has announced a decision to eliminate from the city administration the offices of city attorney, city engineer, city health officer and city police matron. The change would save $2,870 a year for the city.

A group of farmers and business men of Dayton appeared before county commissioners this morning to protest the condition of the bridge across Tongue River in Dayton. The bridge is considered a menace to public safety. Commissioners promised to determine some remedy.

A man arrested several weeks ago for theft of some heavy bridge planks belonging to Sheridan County pleaded guilty in district court and was fined $100 and costs.
