‘Something spiritual'

Riders retrace historic ride of Chief Joseph

It was out of the past, but at the same time, very much a part of the present.

A ride to remember the flight of Chief Joseph and his Nez Perce people 136 years ago passed through northern Wyoming last week.

“Here they come,” said Mike Weiner, gazing through his binoculars at the rider/horses, who, to the naked eye, resemble colorful dots on a very steep and distant slope.

McIntosh bashed his way to victory Saturday night in the Park County Fair Demolition Derby, but he wasn’t the only one to have a smashing time.

A proud project

Nic Patrick, 64, was attacked June 20 by a grizzly sow with cubs. His wife Joyce rushed him to a Cody hospital, and he was soon transferred to a Denver medical facility.

A South Fork man who was seriously injured by a sow grizzly bear Thursday morning faces a long recovery in a Denver hospital.
