Sydney Johnson, daughter of Patrick and Christy Johnson, has been selected as the October Student of the Month at Cyril High School. She is the granddaughter of Jolene and Jim Johnson and Peggy and the late Val Dean Henery. Her brother, Zach Johnson, is also a Cyril graduate.

Six local volunteer fire departments have converged this afternoon at a large fire located three miles north of Cyril. Working hard to contain and extinguish the growing inferno, crews have to don protective gear despite the current triple-digit temperatures.
