Even after a wild wintery week, there are still things to do in Fremont County this weekend

    Wow, what a wild ride we had on this wacky, wintery “Snowmageddon” last week of February! BIG THANKS to our Snowplow Heroes, and to our state, county, and city public works and transportation departments who have been working tirelessly with the “mess management” (I know…I’ve heard the plows out as early as 4 a.m. these past few days).

    Just in time for us to catch a break with mostly sunny skies tomorrow! Of course, then you’ve got a bit of a slushy, icy mess in spots…so if you’re venturing out and around the county this weekend, remember that it’s still slippery out there…just be sure to walk safe, drive safe (and sober), but most of all, have fun!

    Just as huge is Fremont County’s supportive sports fans, and it might be difficult to keep up on all the regional games that have been going on…but not with County 10! Just check out the “Sports Live Stream” for the schedule (thanks, Wyatt and John!), and you can watch live on YouTube, Facebook, or listen in on KOVE 1330 AM/107.7 FM or Jack FM at 105.1.


    Always check for canceled, postponed, or rescheduled events! If you want to announce a cancellation on County 10, email [email protected]
