Letter to the Editor

Representatives are hired by you To the editor: I have heard many people complain about current events and that our elected representatives do not represent us. This is both true and untrue, but entirely in YOUR hands. Look at the people of Wyoming, then look at our Wyoming legislature. And if you...
To the editor: Instead of having a meeting where 20-22 people show up and 90% are for chickens in town, we have an election coming up. Put it up for a vote then and let the voters decide. We already have ordinances that are not enforced, why have another one? If you’re worried about the cost of...
Promoting Weston County   To the Editor: This letter is in response to your article titled “UW tourism survey: Weston County vastly undermarketed.” The student study pointed to what the Weston County Travel Commission has been dealing with for years. These are underfunding, lack of interest, and...
Fentanyl Russian Roulette   To the Editor: It is difficult for the average person to understand why a normal person would persist in playing Russian Roulette with a loaded gun every day, but that is what some people are doing who take various pills every day to try to escape reality.

Fortunately most of those bills were defeated, thus preserving the rights of citizens — everyone, that...
To the Editor: Can we take a minute to talk about some of our most unsung heroes in our county? I’m referring to our dispatchers, the people who answer our calls when we are having an emergency.  It’s important for our citizens to know how often these people are forgotten as some of our most...
Legislators need to stick to the budget To the Editor: The Wyoming Legislature is back in session — a brief session supposedly dedicated to dealing with vital financial issues for our state. Unfortunately some members are more focused on the sex and reproductive lives of Wyomingites than on taking...
You by the jury   To the Editor: You be the jury when you vote in 2022. This may be some interesting details for the community.   On Oct. 19, 2021, county commissioners from three counties, Weston, Niobrara, and Goshen, met in an open and advertised meeting. The agenda was a vote for the person...
