Leading spec]a BY SARAH PRIDGEON sarah@sundancetimes.com The Crook County Fair Board has elected to discuss the alleged mistake made in the sale of this year's prize steer at the Junior Livestock Fair at a special meeting later this month. The decision was made on the advice of Joe Baron, County Attorney. Baron's recommendation, made at the Fair Board's regular monthly meeting, was to set the matter aside to allow time for it to be the sole matter to bediscussed and resolved at the special meeting. Teresa Fordyce, Who brought the matter before the board, agreed to the deci- sion and submitted her official complaint and $50 fee to the board with a request for official board action. "I would like a date and time set for the meet- ing tonight," she added. "This has gone on for a while now." A motion was passed to hold the special meeting, administered by-an impartial media- tor. The Sale Superintendent and Baron were both invited, but not required, to attend. Upon Fordyce's query as to whether there will be a timeframe for her to submit the names of speakers, the motion was amended to al- low names to be presented to the Fair Secre- tary until no later than two days before the meeting. As both sides needed to agree on the choice of mediator, Baron advised the board that selection needed to take place at the regular meeting. The board proposed asking Bruce Brown to mediate on the basis that he is knowledge- able about the fair, policiesand procedures and able to be impartial. Fordyce agreed to the suggestion. However, the Wyoming Department of Ag- riculture's Mediation Coordinator was then proposed, and, on Fordyce's approval, high- lighted as first choice. The Mediation Pro- gram is a process by which Wyoming citizens can resolve their disputes through open, honest discussion and, as pointed out by Board Member Andrea Driskill, will involve a mediator from outside Crook County. The special meeting is scheduled for Decem- ber 19 at 6 p.m. at the County Fairgrounds. City Hall will be closed on Monday Dec. 24th and Tuesday, Dec. 25th Monday garbage will be picked up on Wednesday, Dec.'26th Happy Holidays ***City of Sundance Wyoming State Park, Historic Site and Trails gift certificates that can be used to purchase annual daily use and overnight camping permits are currently available at the Barrett Build- ing in Cheyenne.
