  • Residents enjoy Halloween golf

    Stephanie Thompson, Editor|Oct 31, 2019

    The residents take aim with their plastic, blue and yellow putter. They're careful not to hit the ball too hard or soft. Once they think a shot is lined up, they swing the putter. Sometimes the ball goes in the hole, other times it misses and hits one of the five Halloween-themed indoor golf holes cutouts. All of this was part of a Halloween golf game residents at the Mission at Castle Rock Rehabilitation Center were playing. Cora White, CRRC activities assistant, walked around the center...

  • Nuclear fuel rod storage a bad idea for Wyo.

    Oct 31, 2019

    Dear Editor: I am writing in opposition to the proposed legislation the minerals committee is considering regarding temporary spent nuclear fuel rod storage. This a bad idea on so many levels. Wyomingites have consistently opposed such ideas because while there might be as much as a billion dollars or more to be made, we have much more to lose. We should consider the fact that Wyoming is not at the table in these discussions as a plus. Wyoming ought to be banking on the assets it has, like wide open spaces and free roaming wildlife.

  • Today's Wyoming hunting, tomorrow's heritage at risk

    Josh Coursey, Guest Columnist|Oct 31, 2019

    David Martin, Publisher|Oct 31, 2019

I can’t even remember when I originally bought them. They’re a pair of tennis shoes, colored two shades of gray and they’ve had to go for a whi...
