Steve Scheel Speaks at Annual Meeting

BILLINGS -

A big-name sports retailer headlined the annual meeting of Big Sky Economic Development, a partnership between public and private organizations focused on growing Yellowstone County's economy.

The Keynote speaker for this year's event was Steve Scheel, CEO of the sporting goods store Scheels. One of Scheel's newest stores is being built at Shiloh Crossing in Billings. It will be a large regional store with attractions such as a Ferris Wheel, shooting galleries, and a soccer simulator.

Scheels Chairman and CEO Steve Scheel said, "We're going to be rolling out a lot of things in Billings that have worked in Salt Lake, that we're rolling out in Kansas City as well, and we've got some things planned for Billings that we've never done before in a Scheels store, and we're looking forward to September 6 of next year when we get open."

The new store is expected to hire around 450 people, about half of which will be full-time employees. It's hoped the store will attract people from as far away as Canada, Idaho, and the Dakotas.

    Street Lights Needed

    Streets that run for several blocks, without a single street light. It is a dark reality many residents throughout the Magic City face when the sun goes down. Leo Robinson lives on Monad Rd., east of 24th Street. He said if street lights were placed on Monad, safety for everyone would improve. Terry Smith, City Traffic Engineer, said the city is more than willing to work with anyone, on any street, which lacks street lights.

    Hundreds of Hells Angels are coming to Cody for a national meeting this week. The motorcycle club apparently likes the northwest Wyoming town. They held their world run there in 2006. Police presence is heavy in Cody now.
