As veterans ourselves we understand the the struggles in adapting back into civilian life and strongly believe education is a great way to start that process. We are kicking off our monthly giveaway to local Sheridan & Johnson County Veterans attending college. We encourage all local veterans that are enrolled in college to enter on our website. The funds could be used for any means necessary for a veteran to be successful with their educational goals. Sometimes that can mean just getting to and from the college, or perhaps purchasing a quick lunch, supplies etc.

Enter on our website to win a $50 gift card to use toward your educational goals.

Giveaway ends September 1, 2020.

Thank you for your service.... we appreciate you!

In recent days, we have watched as outraged and frustrated protesters spilled into the streets of American cities. Across our communities, unhealed wounds have been brought vividly to our attention once again.

Our firm is committed to empowering people to protect what matters most in their lives. At times like this, we are reminded that part of that work is nurturing stronger connection to our entire community, in whatever ways we can.

We hope that you and your family are faring well during these extraordinary times. If there is anything we can do to support you or someone you care about, please let us know.

Stay well, Stay safe and God Bless.

With Groundhog Day just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about spring. (Or time to at least hope that springtime is coming, anyway.) And whether Punxsutawney Phil or the local groundhog in Sheridan sees his shadow or not, we here at Weaver Insurance Agency have you covered.

Get ready for spring

Although everyone thinks of cleaning when it comes to spring, there are a number of things you should do to make sure your home is ready when the weather in {states-you-write-in} changes. Below is a selection of maintenance tasks from the National Center for Healthy Housing (you can see the full list at

1. Check to make sure your roof’s shingles are in good condition, and check your attic for any possible roof leaks that should be repaired.

2. Look for peeling paint and repair/touch up as needed.

3. Check for signs of leaks at window and door sills and use caulking or weather stripping to seal.

4. Clean your dryer vent and make sure exhaust ducts are clear.

5. Make sure there are no puddles or wet spots in your basement or crawlspace.

6. Look for signs of rodents, roaches, termites, etc. Call an exterminator if you suspect an infestation.

7. Clean your gutters and downspouts.

8. Clean air conditioner coils and drain pans.

9. Check/replace the batteries your home’s smoke and carbon monoxide alarms.

10. Replace filters in your air conditioner and dehumidifier.

11. Store winter heaters, ensuring that liquid-fuel heaters are completely emptied. These should be stored outside, if possible.

What? Six more weeks of winter?

Well, you can take solace in the fact that spring will be here eventually. In the meantime, here are some quick tips from Johns Hopkins University to avoid the “winter blues” and get through those long weeks of waiting.

1. Keep active. Exercise releases endorphins that will elevate your mood.

2. Eat well. High-sugar foods and large amounts of caffeine can feed depression and actually decrease your energy level. Foods such as whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, seafood and lean meats can help your immune system.

3. Go to the light. Bring as much light into your life as possible, by spending time outdoors, opening your shades so your home receives more natural light, or even get help from a “light box.”

4. Get your rest. Go to bed around the same time every night and wake up at the same time each morning. You’ll have more energy during the day.

Of course, if you have strong feelings of depression, please seek assistance from friends, family or a trusted health-care provider. There are people ready to help, whatever the season.

SIDEBAR: Time for an insurance review?

If an annual insurance review wasn’t included in your New Year’s resolutions, why not get it done while you’re in the cleaning and organizing mood this spring? Your life changes over the course of a year — sometimes in monumental ways. That means your insurance needs can change, too.

At Weaver Insurance Agency, we can work with you to make sure you’ve got the coverage you need, while at the same time utilizing all possible credits and discounts to make that coverage affordable. Just give us a call at 307-655-8001. We want to help you meet your goals, and make sure what’s important to you is protected!
