Sandra Wisecaver, publisher of the Buhl Herald passed away, on Monday, February 2, 2015, on the tenth anniversary of her purchase of the Buhl Herald. She was up as usual, focused on getting the paper out. She wasn't feeling well, but in the spirit of true newspaper people, the paper had to get out.

She started working at The Buhl Herald as a senior in high school and continued working for Bob Bailey, Sr. at the Buhl Herald while attending the College of Southern Idaho.
In 1969 she married Joe Wisecaver. In the early 1970's she worked for several years full time in the payroll department at Green Giant. Through the years, she served as a Cub Scout den mother, 4-H leader, baseball and softball cheer mom and driver, transporting players to the games.
The Wisecavers farmed for many years. Sandra also worked part-time for several years for the Blick family at the Corner Merc in Castleford.
In 1987 she was awarded the contract for the mail delivery to Roseworth and she and Joe have maintained that contract through the years.
In 1987 she became the Castleford correspondent for the Buhl Herald. In 1992, she went back to the Buhl Herald working for Bob Bailey, Jr. developing the roles of newspaper reporter and editor and in 2005, became owner and publisher of the Buhl Herald that celebrated its 100th birthday the following year.
