From the Jan. 25, 1945 News Record:
Two Gillette men, Pfe. Kenneth Lindsey, USMC and Technical Sgt. Robert Birdsall have sent word to their relatives from their prison camps in the Philippines. The message from Kenneth was addressed to his mother, Mrs. Laura Lindsey of Sheridan. He said he was well and requested tobacco and concentrated food packages. The requests cannot be met since the Japanese government does not list these articles as permissible for prisoners of war. He asked that his brother, Archie Lindsey and Mrs. Lindsey write, so it is probable that word that his brother is in the service has never reached him. He is in prison camp 10-A. Lindsey was on Corregidor at the outbreak of the war. The card from T. Sgt. Robert B. Birdsall was addressed to Mr. and Mrs. Leo Barnes. It came from prison camp No. 2. The card said little but that he was well and requested letters and greetings be sent to his friends. It is understood that Birdsall is carried officially by the war department as missing at the present time, since it is possible he was on a prison vessel recently torpedoed in action in the South Pacific. These cards are said to take six to eight months in transit.
From the Jan. 3, 1957 News Record:
A 25-year-old man miraculously escaped with his life from a falling oil derrick last Sunday morning on the William Maycock place, it was reported this week. Fred Long of Shoshoni was said to have been working at the rig when it toppled over crushing a car and a tool shed. He was in between the two objects, which apparently held the metal up enough to save his life. He sustained a broken left leg, two breaks in his right arm, a broken vertebra and possible internal injuries.
S From the jan. 26, 1967 news record:
The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission acted to close hunting of the grizzly bear following its placement on the endangered species list of the Department of the Interior. The Endangered Species Preservation act of 1966 gives the Department of the Interior the authority to protect the species, state Game Warden Howard W. Robinson said, and the commission excluded the grizzly from the 1967 bear hunting regulations. Black bear may be hunted in the entire state during the spring season, from April 1 through June 30.
Fall seasons correspond to open deer and or elk hunting areas and season dates. Cub bears and female bears with cub at side are protected at all times. The grizzly bear is larger than the black bear and is identified by a hump on the shoulders, lighter color, longer claws and larger head, Robinson said. No accurate count of the number of grizzlies found in Wyoming is available, he said, because the grizzly lives only in the remotest areas where people are seldom seen.
