The Heritage of the American West show celebrated Cowboy Poetry Week in a special program on April 20, 2006 in Spearfish, South Dakota before a live audience at the High Plains Heritage Center, with Yvonne Hollenbeck, Wally Bazyn and South Dakota's first screening of Ridin' & Rhymin', the award-winning documentary about Georgie Sicking.  Georgie and Rhonda Sedgwick Stearns also recited poetry. You can listen to the archive here.  Producer Francie Ganje created a colorful report:   


  An article in the Black Hills Pioneer on April 25, 2006, "Cowboy Poetry Celebrated at the Heritage Center," by Anna Kooistra reports on the April Heritage of the American Westt show at the Heritage Plains Center in Spearfish, South Dakota, and the proclamations by Mayor Jerry Krambeck and Governor Mike Rounds recognizing Cowboy Poetry Week locally and throughout the state.  The article quotes Georgie Sicking, "When asked what advice she would give young women of today, she hesitated briefly and then exclaimed: 'Don't expect anybody to hand it to you, go get it yourself. Work for it. A lot of women never find out what their potential is.'" Read the entire article here
