The Lady Dogies just finished an amazing season, ending with a 23-3 record, which is the best I have ever seen in my 23- year tenure here at Newcastle High School. Unfortunately, the timing of those losses meant that the team’s goal of bringing home the first state championship since 1979 died a...
F acing declining revenue prospects, physicians are shuttering their private, independent practices to join up with larger hospitals that have near-monopolies on care in the regions they serve.  This trend is depressing news for Americans. Further concentration of market power in these health...
L iving in Wyoming, it is easy to feel insulated from world events, especially those overseas. Even though we see the news footage and can recognize that significant things are happening elsewhere, there is often little practical impact to our day to day lives. Our work generally continues, our...

It’s that time of year, that wonderful time of year when the culminating events for all the winter sports are taking place and teams and athletes are accomplishing fantastic feats in or on their various fields of play. Champions are being crowned and we fans get to marvel in their accomplishments....
Mother Nature thwarted the first weekend of basketball for the Lady Dogies, which meant they missed out on three games of their season.  I was really happy that it worked out for both the boys and the girls to be able to find a time to make up their missed cross-conference games against Burns, and...
