Horse health: Keep traveling horses safe with a CVI …06.29.21

As events start to open up across the country, animals will be traveling to different events. As horses move across state linesand even withinit is important to take the proper safety measures to protect other horses.

Heath Certificates, or Certification ofVeterinarianInspection (CVI), proves a veterinarian has looked at an animal and deemed it free of infectious diseases. This is needed for travel with animals, explains Dr. NathanGlaza,host of the Veterinary Podcastand owner of Licking Valley Veterinary Service.

Certification of Veterinarian Inspections helpprotectinfectiousdiseases from spreading.

Glazaexplains,The government deems we as veterinarians should give our stamp of approval horses wont transmitdiseases.

Certificate details

There are many piecesmakingup the heath certificate. First,the paper will indicate whether the horse is traveling intrastate or interstate.

Intrastate regulationsare specific to horses traveling within the state and canbe obtained by localveterinarians.

On the other hand, interstate health certificates are valid for 30 days. It is important the veterinarianclarifies which states the horse will travel through on the certificate.It isalsoimportant to understand how laws may vary between states.

Next, the healthcertificateprovidesthe intended purpose of the horse.The purposes can vary fromshow, rodeo, race, trail ride, sale or other.

Then, horse owners need to indicate how the animal will be transported. While the most common means of transportation is truck, there are many other ways this can be done.

After transportation, the health certificate asks for the basic horse information. The owner or consigner of the horse needs to be established on theCVI. This also needs to include the physical address of the horse.

This is important in tracking the horse in the case of an outbreak of disease, saysGlaza.

Additionally,the owners address and informationisincluded, along with theaddresses of where the horse will betraveling. On this point,Glazastressed theimportantof including full addresses on allhealth certificates.

Also found on a typical health paper is a section for comments and permit number.Thecommentsectionallows the veterinarian to fill specific details on the horse. Permit number is where the vet contacts the state,in essence to notify the state animals are coming and receive permission in the form of a number that the animals can come to thestate, mentionsGlaza.

Finally, horse informationis added to the paper.This includes horse tattoo orother means of identification, name, breed, color, age, sexand temperature at time of exam. This section also requiresnegativeEquine Infectious Anemia (EIA)orCoggins testinformation. This test is required for traveland receiving health certificates.

Wyomingconcerns

For Wyoming horse owners, health certificates help keep the states horse population safe. There are many diseasesthat can be prevented by obtaining health certificates.state veterinary officials arediligent when it comes to writing a CVI and it is proven in the herds of healthy horses across the state.

Therehavenot been any positivecases ofEIA in the state for many years, reflects Dr. Brad DeGroot, Wyomingassistantstateveterinarian, on Wyoming horse health.

Paroplasmosis is very similar to EIA. This blood born disease has been a concern inQuarterHorses.However,by testing forparoplasmoisand Coggins before buying a new ranch horsethe buyer and sellercan helpensuresafety.

For the upcoming summer,DeGrootis also concerned about West Nilevirus, which can affect both horses and people.

Its more of a problem at lower elevations, said DeGroot. It is a mosquito-bornediseasewhichcan spill over into people.

Equineinfluenzaandequineherpieswere also mentioned byDeGroot bothcan be serious infections. Wyoming horse owners need to be cautious of these diseases to protect horses across the state.

By obtaining a CVI, horse owners can help keep the whole horse population healthy.

Glazasummarizes their importance,noting,Health certificates are not for individual horses in a grand sense, they are to protect our state horse herd or our nations horse herd.

Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles have ‘grown closer as a couple,’ more news – Wonderwall06.12.21

By Wonderwall.com Editors 5:30am PDT, Jun 5, 2021

Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde's romance is very much still on, a source tells ET. Olivia, 37, and Harry, 27, have been enjoying London together since they wrapped their upcoming film "Don't Worry Darling" earlier this year. "[They're] having an awesome time," the insider says, revealing that the two have "growneven closer as a couple." They've also seemed to feel open about their relationship while sharing outings like "walks outside in the park" and a recent outdoor lunch where they "looked incredibly cute together," according to the source. "They were both in a great mood and left the restaurant holding hands. Harry put his arm around Olivia as they walked back to her house," added the ET spy. Olivia and Harry reportedly got to know each other on set. Romance rumors kicked into high gear in January after they were spotted at a wedding together where they were holding hands. Once production ended on the film, which Olivia directed, the two continued to be "inseparable," a separate source told ET at the time.

In the months since Kim Kardashian West filed for divorce from Kanye West in February, she's avoided discussing the split with fans and press, presumably because what she was going through would be covered in the final season of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." That season, of course, is airing now and on the June 3 episode, Kim broke down in tears about the prospect of her third divorce. "I just, like, honestly can't do this anymore," Kim told her sisters, Kourtney Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner, through tears. "Why am I still in this, like, place where I'm stuck? For years. Like, he goes and moves to a different state every year. I have to be, like, together, so I can raise the kids, you know? He's an amazing dad. He's done an amazing job." After Kourtney assured Kim her estranged husband would continue being a great father to their four children maybe even "better without" her "handling things" Kim continued to give her husband the benefit of the doubt. "I think he deserves someone that can go support his every move, and go follow him all over the place and move to Wyoming. I can't do that. He should have a wife that supports his every move and travels with him and does everything, and I can't," she said, still crying. "I feel like a failure that it's, like, a third marriage. Yeah, I feel like a loser. But I can't even think about that. Like, I want to be happy." Later, Khloe Kardashian told the camera she worries about Kim's habit of looking after everyone else. "Kim is one of the most incredible human beings, literally, ever, and she tries to protect their union at all costs. But it's hard when you carry that responsibility on your shoulders, and I just want her to take care of herself, too." Kim, meanwhile, sounded committed to the divorce by the end of the episode. "There's, like, honestly nothing to talk about," she said. "I mean, I won't live with, like, the fighting and stuff. Like, if it was constant."

In her first local television interview since announcing her candidacy for California governor, Caitlyn Jenner admits her famous family was less than receptive to her decision to join the race. Asked if Kim Kardashian West might advise the former Olympic athlete and reality star on criminal justice reform, Caitlyn told Fox 11's Elex Michaelson, "As time goes on and I become gov, I'm sure she'll have my ear," before joking, "When I talked to all of my family about running for governor, it was easier to come out as trans than as a Republican candidate." Other highlights from Caitlyn's appearance on the June 4 edition of "The Issue Is," per Elex's Twitter, included a remark on her qualifications for taking over Gavin Newsom's seat ("I've been preparing for this moment all my life," she said) and whether or not she voted in the 2020 election. Caitlyn, a longtime Republican and an on-off supporter of Donald Trump, told CNN she didn't vote; public records later indicated she did. "It was mail in balloting," she said on Elex's show. "There were a couple of people sitting around the house, and we all said, 'should we do this?' I'm pretty sure it was probably sent in." Caitlyn also reportedly discussed how she wants to handle homelessness in California and her refusal to raise taxes.

For years, Quentin Tarantino's threatened to hang up his director's hat after making 10 films and focus more on writing. If you count the "Kill Bill" movies as two separate entities, Quentin's award-winning "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," is the fateful No. 10. Meanwhile, on June 29, Quentin's set to release "a novelization" about Brad Pitt's "Once Upon a Time " character, the sometimes shirtless stuntman Cliff Booth. So does that mean Quentin's done making movies? He sure sounded that way when he sat down for an interview with the "Pure Cinema Podcast" that aired this week. "Most directors have horrible last movies. Usually their worst movies are their last movies," the 58-year-old director explained on the show, per Vulture. "That's the case for most of the Golden Age directors that ended up making their last movies in the late'60s and the'70s, then that ended up being the case for most of the New Hollywood directors who made their last movies in the late'80s and the'90s." "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," on the other hand, was nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award last year. It also won Brad his first acting Oscar. "Maybe I should not make another movie," Quentin mused, "because I could be really happy with dropping the mic on'Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.'" As for the forthcoming novel, Quentin said the chapters each serve as "an isolated pulp" story about Cliff's past. Said Quentin: "I think if you're a fan of the movie you will get a kick out of reading the book, and exploring the characters further and deeper, and learning secrets that you didn't know, and were not in the movie."

Looks like Hulk Hogan's got a touch of Chris-a-mania. The WWE icon shared another compliment on Chris Hemsworth's physique this week as Chris works towards top Hulk-shape for his upcoming, starring role in a Hulk Hogan biopic. "My brother has that Hogan Pump on Jack," Hulk wrote, sharing a photo of Chris, " looks like he could slam Andre brother," he added, shouting out his late wrestling peer, Andre the Giant. First announced in 2019, the Todd Phillips-directed film is expected to be "an origin story of the Hulkster and Hulkamania, according to THR (via People). "This movie is going to be a really fun project," Chris told Total Film in 2020. "As you can imagine, the preparation for the role will be insanely physical. I will have to put on more size than I ever have before, even more than I put on for Thor. There is the accent as well as the physicality and the attitude."

In honor of her 25th wedding anniversary with Mark Consuelos, Kelly Ripa recently got a tiny black tattoo on the inside of her elbow that reads, "5.1.96," a nod to the day the couple said "I do." The gesture apparently touched Mark, who gushed about the tat and Kelly, in general, to People this week. "I love her tattoo. I think it's adorable. I think it's beautiful," Mark said, adding that he just saw the new ink for the first time last week. The two weren't able to be together on May 1, he explained, but Kelly apparently sent him cards and letters, as she usually does, on their big day. "I always keep them for every anniversary. She's a great writer and so I always look forward to reading what she has to say," Mark gushed. "She's super thoughtful so I got a beautiful gift, and I can't believe she somehow hid it in the house," he added, explaining that she had a friend of Mark's stow the present away so it would be a surprise. Mark and Kelly, both 50, share three kids Michael, 23, Lola, 19, and 18-year-old Joaquin, who just wore his dad's tux to his senior prom last month.

Andy Cohen is using his platform to help locate a man he knows from childhood who's gone missing. Last week, the Bravo exec shared information about the disappearance of Andy Neiman, a 48-year-old actor and playwright Cohen went to high school with in St. Louis. The missing person announcement describes Neiman as "a missing vulnerable adult" who suffers from schizophrenia; Page Six reports he's also been diagnosed with bipolar disorder. According to a GoFundMe set up to cover the cost of a private investigator, Andy may also be "suffering from psychosis." He was last seen May 21 in Poughkeepsie, New York, "wearing hospital scrubs," the announcement reveals, adding that he "may be wearing glasses." Authorities believe he's likely to be somewhere "in the local area," according to the post. "Andy is younger than me, but we went to the same camp Nebagamon in Wisconsin and the same high school," Cohen tells Page Six. "I'm praying for his safereturn, along with a lot of folks in St. Louis." Neiman's younger sister, Emily Abramson, tells the outlet her brother did not have a cell phone or any money when he left MidHudson Regional Hospital after having a psychotic break while visiting her family in nearby High Falls, New York. A graduate of Wesleyan, Neiman reportedly has a 9-year-old daughter at home. As of June 4, the GoFundMe page reported Andy had not yet been found.

Bindi Irwin and her brother, Robert Irwin, were thinking of their mom and dad on June 4, as they honored what would have been Terri Irwin and Steve Irwin's 29th wedding anniversary had Steve not been killed in 2006 while filming in the Great Barrier Reef. "Soulmates," Bindi captioned a photo of the couple on Instagram (via ET). "Happy Anniversary to my sweetheart parents. Your love is the stuff of miracles." Terri shared her daughter's sweet post on Twitter, writing, "Today marks 29 years since I married your dad. He was a lot of amazing things, but most of all he was fun. Really, truly fun!" As if on cue, Bindi's younger brother, Robert, shared a photo that seemed to reflect his dad's fun spirit. Alongside an image of Terri carrying Steve in a wheelbarrow as he smiled despite having a bandaged foot and crutches, Robert wrote, "Happy anniversary, Mum and Dad. This is my favourite photo ever." Terri and Steve tied the knot on June 4, 1992. Their daughter, Bindi, 22, went on to marry Chandler Powell last year.

Halsey and their boyfriend, Alev Aydin, are preparing to welcome their first child, a process that's made the singer think about other future parents who may be struggling to line up basic baby necessities. In the interest of helping some of those moms and dads to-be, Halsey's teamed up with Babylist and the nonprofit, Baby 2 Baby, to get some of those necessities into the hands of expectant parents via The Great Group Gift initiative. In a June 3 announcement on Instagram, Halsey who recently changed their pronouns to "she/they" described the campaign as a "universal baby shower for parents in need," telling fans they'd "already donated 100k" and hoped to keep the donations to Baby 2 Baby going. "I am super-duper pregnant," Halsey said in the video post. "One of the hardest things about getting ready for this baby was trying to figure out what I was going to need to buy for them. I knew that they needed a place to eat, a place to sleep, a safe, good car seat, but beyond that I was pretty clueless. Fortunately I was super lucky enough to be able to provide everything that I needed, but in the process I realized how expensive it is to start a family, and how many parents out there were probably struggling to provide the things that they need," the singer continued, adding, "I hope you find it in your heart to be able to give back to some people who are really struggling." According to the organization's website, "Baby2Baby provides children living in poverty with diapers, clothing, and all the basic necessities that every child deserves." The group has also been working to help families affected by the coronavirus pandemic and has so far, "distributed 60 million essential items including diapers, formula, soap, shampoo, food and more to some of the most vulnerable children across the country impacted by the pandemic," the website reports.

New lawmakers tattoo has ties to far-right anti …05.31.21

CHEYENNE The Three Percenters movement has gained representation in the Wyoming Legislature at least symbolically.

A photograph resurfaced this week of freshman Rep. Marshall Burt (L-Green River) that shows a tattoo on his left forearm the Roman numeral III surrounded by 13 stars, above the year 1776. The symbol is commonly associated with a far-right, anti-government movement and the popularization of militia groups.

In a written statement this week, Burt said he is not involved in any militia groups, and got the tattoo because he enjoyed the symbolism of what it stood for.

I got the tattoo because the American Revolution symbolism appealed to me, and to me it represents my solid commitment to the Second and Tenth Amendment, Burt wrote. I have never been a member of a militia group, and I think we have much bigger issues to address, like reducing wasteful spending and getting patients and veterans access to treatments, rather than to dwell on something as minor as a tattoo.

The tatoos symbol which closely resembles a Betsy Ross flag is associated with a loosely organized anti-government movement known as the Three Percenters, which has been growing in influence within American conservative politics. The name comes from the debunked claim that only 3% of colonists fought against the British during the Revolutionary War but achieved liberty for everybody, according to a policy brief by the Anti-Defamation League. A number of militia groups and anti-government activists have adopted the symbol.

The photograph of Burt in which he is sitting at a table with a smiling young supporter initially appeared online last year. National Libertarian Party chairman Joe Bishop Henchman first posted it on his public Facebook page shortly after Burts victory over incumbent Democratic Rep. Stan Blake in November.

After a reporter contacted Burt about the tattoo on Nov. 5, the image was removed from the post, which featured other images of the newly elected lawmaker engaging with Henchman and a handful of supporters.

The Libertarian Party did not respond to an email or phone message requesting comment.

The Three Percenters ideology has gained increasing prominence in American politics over the last decade, with a growing number of Republican officials recently making headlines for their ties to the movement.

Newly elected U.S. Representatives Lauren Boebert (R-Colorado) and Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Georgia) have both attracted attention for their associations with militia groups tied to the Three Percenters. Illinois state lawmaker Chris Miller, was found to be sporting a III% decal on a truck driven by his U.S. Representative spouse around the Jan. 6 riots at the United States Capitol. Members of a Three Percenter militia group also provided security at the 2017 Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.

This week authorities listed the Three Percenters among the groups they feared were plotting another attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Unlike militia groups like the Oath Keepers, however, researchers say the Three Percenters are often loosely defined, and many who prescribe to the ideology may not actually be active participants of any centralized group.

Nobody has a firm idea of what the [Three Percenter] movement is, according to J.J. MacNabb, a fellow with the Program on Extremism at George Washington University.

If you are, for example, a Three Percenter in Idaho, youre part of a militia. You show up, you train, you organize, you actually have membership, MacNabb said. But if youre just kind of a Three Percenter, or if you got a tattoo or wear the T-shirt, or have a patch on your hat or whatever, you very well might not belong to any local group, and youre not part of them. Youre part of the movement. And because its loosey goosey, theres no real definition of what it means to be a Three Percenter.

Some Three Percenter supporters may not even know what the symbology actually stands for, MacNabb said.

In interviews with people who have had tattoos similar to Burts, MacNabb has learned that people have many different interpretations for the symbol, she said. One believed it was pro-military. Another believed it represented support for the Second Amendment. Last year, a draft pick by the New England Patriots, Justin Rohrwasser, made headlines after he was spotted with a Three Percenter tattoo, which he said he believed was a pro-military, patriotic symbol. In fact, the symbol has gained favor among members of the military, and members of some chapters have had close ties to the military.

Burt himself is a Marine Corps veteran.

According to the Anti-Defamation League, while the media often refer to the Three Percenters as a movement or a group, they actually constitute a segment of the broader anti-government militia movement and, as a concept, can be seen as a way to simplify, popularize and spread the ideology and beliefs of the militia movement.

There is an unofficial Three Percenters website, for example, with a merchandise store and a blog detailing the movements beliefs. That blog also challenges various ways the movement has been depicted in the popular press, particularly following civil unrest throughout the summer and the violent riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

However, the site which belongs to a group that purports to be the original Three Percenters explicitly states on its (now-defunct) landing page that there are lots of three-percenter groups and that there was no specific organization responsible for the storming of the Capitol.

As weve said many times before, we do not allow members into our organization who are racists, white supremacists, violent, anti-government, extremists, terrorists, etc., the group wrote in a Feb. 19 blog post. We have a vetting standard in place to weed out these types that would seem to hurt our organization. We are law-abiding good people who love America and want to give back to our communities. We ask the news agencies to conduct accurate reporting instead of lumping all Three Percenter groups into one. Were not all the same. In fact, were radically different from one another. Do better reporting.

The symbol has been connected to anti-government violence in recent years. One of the men charged in the 2018 bombing of a Minnesota mosque was found to have run a Three Percenter group, and several people prescribing to the ideology were among those who stormed the United States Capitol.

Rohrwasser later said he regretted getting the tattoo after learning what it symbolized, and planned to have it removed, according to the Providence Journal. The United States Military has issued warnings that some of its symbols including a combat medic trauma course symbol closely resembling the Three Percenters symbol were being co-opted by white supremacist and anti-government groups who were attracted to the patriotic symbology, the Army Times reports.

A lot of these guys who get this tattoo dont know what it actually means, MacNabb said. And the fact [that Burt] ran for office is a good thing. In its purest form, a Three Percenter would never run for office. Theyd try to gather up enough people to take on the government from the outside.

CHEYENNE The Three Percenters movement has gained representation in the Wyoming Legislature at least symbolically.

A photograph resurfaced this week of freshman Rep. Marshall Burt (L-Green River) that shows a tattoo on his left forearm the Roman numeral III surrounded by 13 stars, above the year 1776.

That blog also challenges various ways the movement has been depicted in the popular press, particularly following civil unrest throughout the summer and the violent riots at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

However, the site which belongs to a group that purports to be the original Three Percenters explicitly states on its (now-defunct) landing page that there are lots of three-percenter groups and that there was no specific organization responsible for the storming of the Capitol.

As weve said many times before, we do not allow members into our organization who are racists, white supremacists, violent, anti-government, extremists, terrorists, etc., the group wrote in a Feb. 19blog post. We have a vetting standard in place to weed out these types that would seem to hurt our organization. We are law-abiding good people who love America and want to give back to our communities. We ask the news agencies to conduct accurate reporting instead of lumping all Three Percenter groups into one. Were not all the same. In fact, were radically different from one another. Do better reporting.

The symbol has been connected to anti-government violence in recent years. One of the men charged in the 2018 bombing of a Minnesota mosque wasfound to have runa Three Percenter group, and several people prescribing to the ideology were among those who stormed the United States Capitol.

Rohrwasser later said he regretted getting the tattoo after learning what it symbolized, andplanned to have it removed, according to the Providence Journal. The United States Military hasissued warningsthat some of its symbols including a combat medic trauma course symbol closely resembling the Three Percenters symbol were being co-opted by white supremacist and anti-government groups who were attracted to the patriotic symbology, the Army Times reports.

A lot of these guys who get this tattoo dont know what it actually means, MacNabb said. And the fact [that Burt] ran for office is a good thing. In its purest form, a Three Percenter would never run for office. Theyd try to gather up enough people to take on the government from the outside.

What to stream: ‘Pray, Obey, Kill’ and other Nordic noir offerings – Wyoming Tribune04.22.21

Debuting this week on HBO Max, the five-part docuseries Pray, Obey, Kill, is a new crime series that fuses the trends of true crime and Nordic noir. Directed by Henrik Georgsson, who also directed episodes of the blockbuster Danish/Swedish crime series The Bridge, Pray, Obey, Kill tells the story of a 2004 murder committed in the small village Knutby, Sweden. Its a befuddling crime, in which a man and a woman are both shot in different homes at the same time, with the investigation turning toward a young female nanny and the female murder victims husband, the pastor of a small Pentecostal church.

Utilizing archival news footage, interviews and reenactments, Georgsson shows the tale through the lens of two investigative journalists who are dissecting the case. Its a fascinating blend of documentary and narrative, a prestige true crime series in the model of The Jinx.

Pray, Obey, Kill arrives on the heels of two other Nordic noir series on HBO Max. The Investigation, written and directed by Tobias Lindholm, is a restrained and exacting depiction of the investigation into the real-life disappearance and murder of Swedish journalist Kim Wall, who went missing after boarding the submarine of Danish entrepreneur Peter Madsen in 2017. Lindholm and his team create a masterwork that is astonishingly reverent of the victims life and death, and the intense and meticulous investigation that went into recovering her body and the evidence of her murder.

Also on HBO Max, five-episode miniseries Beartown is more of a family drama than crime show, centering around a small town in Sweden and its hockey team. But when the coachs daughter is raped by a player, the consequences for the tight-knit community unfold.

Theres much more to explore in the Nordic noir genre, beyond The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Check out Georgssons previous work on The Bridge (aka Bron/Broen), which is available to stream on Amazon Prime or Hoopla. Created by Hans Rosenfeldt, the four season series starts with the discovery of a body on the bridge between Denmark and Sweden.

While Danish crime procedural Forbrydelsen, is unfortunately challenging to find on streaming, the American remake The Killing, starring Mireille Enos and Joel Kinnaman, was given a Twin Peaks touch and transplanted to the Pacific Northwest. Check it out on Amazon Prime or Hulu (bonus: Wonder Woman directer Patty Jenkins directed several episodes in the first season).

Icelandic crime series Trapped is available on Amazon Prime, and follows a small town police chief in Iceland as he attempts to solve the murder of a man whose body is discovered by fisherman. You may recognize star Olafur Darri Olafsson as one of the Icelandic delegates from Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga.

Another Icelandic mystery drama, Case follows the mystery of a young ballerina who is found hanged onstage at the National Theater. Stream it on Netflix. Also on Netflix, Caliphate, a series set in Sweden about young Muslim women who are courted by members of ISIS. The series is based on the real-life case of the Bethnal Green trio in London.

There are many, many more similar offerings on Netflix, and it looks like HBO Max is getting into the Nordic noir game too, so now is the perfect time to give the genre a try.

The Wyoming Department of Health implemented modified COVID-19 guidelines on January 26 that will be active through at least February 14. These guidelines implement measures that coincide with Opening Up America Again.

According to the orders signed on January 21 by Alexia Harrist, the Wyoming State Health Officer, Opening Up America Again is the three-phase approach that began on April 26, 2020. The White House plan would remove restrictions when no evidence of virus resurgence occurred.

The orders require face coverings to be worn in restaurants, bars, and clubs. This is a continuation of what has been happening in Albany County and Laramie. Bars and Restaurants also must implement social distancing precautions as well as proper sanitization.

Gatherings of more than 10 people are still prohibited under the modification, unless specifically exempted. Some exemptions include livestock auctions, government or military businesses, residential buildings and grocery stores.

Indoor events may be allowed to have more than 10 people if no more than 25% of the venue capacity is reached, a maximum of 250.Outdoor events may have a maximum of 500 people but no more than 50% of the venue capacity.

Tattoo shops, hair and nail salons and other esthetic service businesses will be required to follow the same requirements under the new order. This includes social distancing, sanitization procedures and face coverings.

Under the modified health orders, businesses are still instructed to require face coverings on the premises. This requirement should be posted at the entrance of businesses.

New artist in Galion: SD Tattoo now open on the Square – Galion Inquirer01.12.21

GALION Tucked inside a corner building at 21 Public Square in Galion, right next to the gazebo park, sits the newest business to open its doors to residents near and far.

SD Tattoo, owned by Sailor Dave Rohr with help from his fiance Amber Nafziger opened in early December 2020 and has been ushering in a steady stream of customers ever since.

Rohr grew up in Johnstown and began his tattoo artistry in 1997 in Zanesville, apprenticing under a longtime tattoo artist.

And it just took off from there, he said.

He then set his sights on the rest of the country and spent several years in the commercial fishing industry before getting back into the tattoo business. He has shared his tattooing talents in Wyoming, Washington, Oregon, California, and several other states.

I really enjoy the lifestyle tattooing provides, Rohr said. I like working for myself and I just love tattooing. Its the one thing nobody can ever take from you. Its not like its going to wear out like a set of tires or a car or something. Its an investment. Thats why they arent cheap.

Rohr noted he has been so busy since they opened that he currently doesnt have any openings until Jan. 18.

Some of the most popular tattoo requests Rohr said he is getting recently are clocks and roses.

And script writing, people want to get things written on them, he added. I also do a lot of cover ups. A lot of people have bad tattoos they need to get them covered up. I specialize in cover ups. I love covering up old tattoos. I have a couple good sized projects going on already, but thats whats good about tattoos, you never know what youre going to do.

I also love doing color (tattoos) if the skin is right and the canvas is good. Black and grey I just love tattooing. I sit and listen to my music when Im tattooing.

Prices for tattoos vary, but Rohr noted he has an $80 minimum and charges $100 an hour, but said he does all-day sessions right now for $600.

Thats 10 hours of tattooing for $600, he said. I like to take my time. I try not to rush through any of my tattoos and want to make sure (customers) walk out the door happy.

SD Tattoo is open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Rohr suggested people call and make appointments to ensure he has enough time to complete their desired tattoo.

Anyone with questions or who would like to make an appointment may call 419-462-8242. The Facebook page is titled SD Tattoo Galion and includes photos of Rohrs work.

Sailor Dave Rohr, right, is the owner of SD Tattoo, located at 21 Public Square in Galion. Rohr, who has worked as a tattoo artist since 1997, opened SD Tattoo in December 2020. Rohr is shown in his shop with his fiance Amber Nafziger and her daughter Silver Sands. For information, go to the shops Facebook page SD Tattoo Galion.
