5. Sherman County Fair Queen Shelby Reed Welcomes You!

cowboy.bootHi! My name is Shelby Reed. I am the 17-year-old daughter of Marsha & Bert Benson and Tracy & Jennifer Reed. I live in Grass Valley and attend Sherman County High School as an up-coming senior. Although my love for horses may be strong, I hope one day to obtain an associate’s degree in cosmetology. I was lucky enough to grow up with horses. With my mom and dad both riding I picked it up quickly and was riding by age two. My interests include animal care, 4-H sheep, rodeo and volleyball.

I am proud to be this year’s 2018 Sherman County Fair Queen. I enjoyed traveling and representing Sherman County at many different parades and rodeos with my horses Signer and Pixie.

I thank everyone for your support and look forward to seeing you at the fair!

Shelby Reed


6. Fourth Biennial Public Lands Foundation Student Congress, Aug. 22-25

Portland, Ore.—The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the Public Lands Foundation are proud to announce that the Fourth Biennial Public Lands Foundation Student Congress will be held in Baker City, Oregon, from August 22 to 25, 2018.

Every two years, the Public Lands Foundation sponsors a National Student Congress focused on public land management and natural resource issues. This year’s theme will reflect on the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act and the National Trails Act. The Student Congress will also include former Oregon Governor Barbara Roberts and former BLM Director Jim Caswell as featured speakers.

Student Congress participants are recruited from colleges and universities across the country where they discuss current issues and potential solutions for future policy making.  Students from throughout the U.S. and Canada will be participating in this year’s Student Congress from a wide-ranging number of universities, including: University of Oregon, University of Wisconsin, Arizona State University, Penn State University, University of Ottawa, and the Colorado School of Mines.  A full list of this year’s student participants, along with their biographical summaries is available here:

https://publicland.org/about/biennial-student-congress/2018-2/

At the end of each Student Congress a report is prepared that summarizes the Student Congress and makes recommendations for future land management policy making and are presented by members of the Student Congress to the Public Lands Foundation and to BLM officials in Washington D.C.

The Public Lands Foundation is a national advocacy organization that works to keep public lands in public hands.  The Public Lands Foundation was founded in 1987 and is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization. Additional information about the BLM’s partnership with the Public Lands Foundation is available online at:
