Injured Skier Awarded Financial Assistance

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.

But you’d be wrong. The last total lunar eclipse visible in Wyoming was way back in 2009, if I’m not mistaken. So I’ve been looking […]

  • Back to normal at the trap range - April 17, 2014
    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
