What a pair of great Wyoming gals.  Two of my favorite people in my two chosen careers left us recently. Clarene Law of Jackson was a giant in the tourism industry and Nancy Shelton of Laramie was a pivotal figure in Wyoming newspapers.  Lately it seems like I spend more time writing obituary types...
It’s that time of year once again. Sunday, we all set our clocks back to Standard Time and are now feeling the effects. A 2020 study by the National Institutes of Health found that around 150,000 Americans experienced physical health problems caused by the biannual time changes. And if you have...
I know that many people hate it, but I am always grateful for “falling back” to mountain standard time as the sun sleeps longer and longer as we head toward winter. I need the sun to shine in order to wake up, and who doesn’t appreciate an extra hour of sleep? So, on Monday when I awoke to sun, but...
Do you believe in absolute truth? God’s word tells us this in John 14:6. Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.“ Here is absolute truth speaking to the people of his day in the person of Jesus. The only absolute truth there is comes...
Many decades ago, when my brother Ron and I would go big-game hunting, it was comforting to know that we were at the top of the food chain.  We had powerful rifles and we knew that no creature out there could cause us serious harm.

The NHS volleyball team is made up of almost exclusively seniors this year, and head coach Mickey Crabtree, who is in her inaugural year, has talked a lot about legacy and what this team wants to leave behind in their final season of high school play. That got me thinking about what leaving a...
“Praise the Lord in song, for He has done glorious things; Let this be known throughout the earth.” Isaiah 12:5   I’ll be the first to tell you that I am not very musically gifted. I can’t sing, and while I’m not completely tone deaf, if I don’t have the music right in front of me, I can’t play...
I was shown an interesting fact recently about Wyoming. It ranks No. 1 in the State Business Tax Climate for 2023, according to The Tax Foundation’s 2023 State Business Tax Climate Index. According to the index, Wyoming is first in corporate taxes and individual taxes, and sixth in sales tax. There...
A port-a-potty. In a Wyoming rancher’s pasture? Really? Here during the final days of this year’s election season, it is appropriate to recall once again one of the great political campaigns in the Cowboy State.   Possibly the biggest campaign idea helping lead to the biggest political upset in...
