Letter to the Editor

To the Editor: The 2022 Legislature of The Equality State failed to live up to that billing, bringing forward numerous bills to reduce, limit, or strip rights from citizens they supposedly serve. 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...

A different perspective   To the editor, I wish to address the editorial published by the Newcastle News Letter Journal on Oct. 27th entitled, “Transparency is in the public’s best interest.” The sentiment expressed in the title isn’t bad. Transparency requires integrity and honesty, something...
Keep history alive   October 28, 2021 Dear Newcastle History Buffs, Since the “History on Main” series by Leonard Cash and Hannah Gross has come to an end, many people have been asking the historical society and the Anna Miller Museum people what we know and how it can be reinstated. I went to Bob...
Enough is enough   To the Editor: The Weston County Commissioners have brought shame to Newcastle politics with their secret vote. Not the thinking of a Republican stance in my mind.  These commissioners can no longer be trusted to handle Weston County affairs. I, for one, will not vote for them....
Keeping Newcastle beautiful   To the Editor, A public note of appreciation is in order for all those who have been involved this year in designing, planting and maintaining the ornamental planters and flower beds around Newcastle, which have been at their brilliant and glorious best for the last 10...
Here for the history   Dear Editor, I see in the paper that the history story For the Ages – History on Main – is scheduled to be cancelled. This is very distressing to me. It is the first thing I read every week. I enjoy visiting with Leonard as he has a vast wealth of Newcastle history...
