Contributors to the "village"

WHEATLAND – The saying goes that it takes a whole village to raise a child, but it also takes a whole lot of dedicated, responsible people to make that village work before a child can ever benefit from it. Two native Wheatlandites, Jim and Kay Bohl, are just that kind of people.

After graduating from WHS, Kay went to beauty school in Cheyenne and Jim went to work at the Wheatland Co-Op, where he was the bookkeeper, ran the tank truck, "did everything and anything" that needed to be done, even to taking the bookwork home at night because there wasn't time during the day to get it all done. Then Dr. James G. Allison "offered me the most interesting job I ever had as office manager for the hospital which was located where Frontier Furniture is now. We filled prescriptions as well as helped with patients." It wasn't long before Ed Foreman (who was the oldest active realtor in the state at the time of his death) offered Jim a job at Stockgrowers Bank, where he stayed for 17 years and was vice president in charge of commercial loans.

"In those days, I knew the people who came in, whether or not they were trustworthy and one piece of paper finalized a loan,” Jim said. “The paperwork became so awful, I just didn't want to do it any more."
