  • The Red Rock Family Practice has added a new employee to their team. Starting Nov. 24 Ellen Reynolds will begin seeing patients at the Thermopolis Clinic. Reynolds is from Montana and is a graduate of Idaho State University. She said part of the reason she decided on moving to Thermopolis was because she is from a small community and wanted to move back into one with her teenage children. “I wanted to move to a small town,” Reynolds said. “It was between here and a town in Montana.” Reynolds said she chose the Red Rock practice because she liked that they interact with a hospital. “I wanted to work at a clinic that supported a hospital,” she said. Another reason why she chose to come to Thermopolis was because she was impressed by how friendly the people living in Wyoming are. Although she and her family moved into town in August, Reynolds said she had to get her Physicians Assistant License before she started working for the Red Rock practice. Reynolds said she was approved by the Wyoming Board of Medicine.

  • Nearly two dozen frozen “turkeys” participated in the annual Turkey Trot 5K on Saturday, sponsored by Gottsche Wellness and Fitness Center and the Hot Springs County School District. Adults and children alike braved below zero temperatures, taking their first lap around the track at the high school, which had almost a foot of snow on it, before venturing out through Hot Springs State Park to complete the race. Although most of the participants carried water with them along the course, there were a few who managed to stay a little warmer with coffee in their cups instead.
