What you may have realized at this point is that the name of this village has absolutely nothing to do with sheep. At a stretch, we could probably guess that a lamb or two has taken a drink from the river, but that’s about it.

That’s right, ladies and gentleman. PETA has labeled a poor, unassuming village in the middle of nowhere as a haven for lamb torturers, without so much a cursory glance at its history. I’m told a similar thing happened in Spearfish not long ago, when it was suggested we start referring to fish as “sea kittens” so we’ll all be nicer to them.

What’s next, I wonder. Will we be asked to rename Buffalo to “Cuddly Thing With Hump”? Add “Carottes” to the end of Belle Fourche so it means “Beautiful Fork for Carrots”? The possibilities seem endless, though not particularly enticing.If you are interested in making a Christmas donation to the library, we have a wish tree set up at the circulation desk. The ornaments on the tree have titles on them that we would appreciate your help in purchasing for the library.
