In high school, Cegelski also quarterbacked the Indians to a state title 1979.

The Indians finished this season 4-6, including a loss to Cheyenne East in the opening round of the Class 4A playoffs. It was the fourth straight year that Central lost in the first round.


Man who killed 3 sons, brother, to be sentenced

WHEATLAND, Wyo. (AP) — A Wyoming man who killed his three young sons and brother and wounded his wife in a shooting rampage faces sentencing Tuesday.

The wife of Everett Conant III says her husband thought their neighbors were spying on him. Suzette Conant told investigators he wanted the curtains kept drawn.

The shooting happened in July, 2011, in the family’s trailer home in Wheatland, a town in southeast Wyomingabout 170 miles north of Denver.

Conant killed his sons, 11-year-old Joseph, 13-year-old Charles and 18-year-old Everett. He also killed his brother, 33-year-old Nacuma Roland Conant.

Conant is 37 and faces life in prison. He has pleaded no contest to murder and attempted murder charges.

A judge ruled after repeated state mental health evaluations that Conant was competent to stand trial.


Event raises $56,000 for blizzard-hit SD ranchers

(Information in the following story is from: The Gillette (Wyo.) News Record,

GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — An auction in Gillette raised $56,000 for ranchers in South Dakota who lost nearly 20,000 head of cattle in a blizzard last month.

The Gillette News-Record reports nearly 500 people attended Saturday’s auction at the Camp-plex events center.

Co-organizer LeAnna Beck says a lot of pies were auctioned off and not one pie sold for less than $250.

The live auction raised almost $20,000 and a silent auction about $15,000.

Organizer Amanda Geer says many others simply donated money for the relief effort. Those donations totaled $17,000 by the end of the night.

Ranchers in Wyoming were much less affected by the storm that dumped up to 4 feet of snow in areas to the northeast.
