Franklyn

A Jackson woman has been awarded over $58-hundred dollars for injuries she sustained while skiing recreationally in the back country last spring.  The Board of Directors of “The High Fives Foundation – Winter Empowerment Program Service” awarded the money to 24-year-old Sally Francklyn as a result of injuries she sustained March 24th. That is when she tumbled over 800 vertical feet on a 55 degree slope, suffering a skull fracture and brain injury along with other injuries in the fall.  After six weeks, Sally came out of her coma. Although she has a long road to recovery ahead of her, Sally remains a beacon of hope and positivity.  Her goal is to once again live independently and resume her career as a writer and public relations expert. “The High Fives Foundation – Winter Empowerment Program Service” disburses board approved grants to disabled winter action sports athletes participating in winter adaptive sports or to injured athletes recovering from a life altering injury.  In an effort to continue raising funds toward recovery, The “Super Sally Celebration” will take place at the Pink Garter Theatre in Jackson, Wyo. on December 8th.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
