Thermopolis Independent Record


Sept. 11, 2014

  • Several churches in Thermopolis are sponsoring a community-wide Prayer Service for Healing Our Nation on Thurs., Sept 11 at 12:15 p.m. in Bicentennial Park. The pastors are taking leadership in praying for good stewards of our land and all its natural resources, for peace and harmony among nations that differ in their religious beliefs and for reconciliation and healing where there is misunderstanding and conflict. The theme of the prayer service is taken from the Bible in Chronicles 7:14, “…if my people, upon whom my name has been pronounced, humble themselves and pray, and seek my face and turn from their evil ways, I will hear them from heaven and pardon their sins and heal their land.”

  • The Lady Bobcat volleyball team is well on their way to a spectacular season after a successful weekend in Billings, Mont. at the Border Wars Tournament. The girls ended day one with a 7-2 record coming out of pool play with wins over both Sidney and Miles City teams before dropping 1-2 to Worland. That placed the Lady Cats in the fourth seed slot going into Saturday. Haylee Hoffman led with 13 kills, followed by Sierra Schmidt with 10 kills in the Saturday morning triple wins over Glendive. Six aces helped the team along and both Dakota Jeffs and Maggie Ryan had 12 digs each. The net was well defended by Kayla Conner who had three blocks for the match.



Recreation football practice was going strong Thursday at the ball fields. Two games are scheduled for Saturday against Worland at the high school football field. The 3rd-4th graders play at 3 p.m. and the 5th-6th graders play at 4:30 p.m. -Lara Love photos

The 4-H'ers have a few more elements to build before they can set the elements in the dog park which is located along the river on East Park Street.
