As a bill that would push the creation of a new community college district in Campbell County to a public vote sits with the Legislature, previous expressions of support from the Northern Wyoming Community College District are waning.

On Friday, NWCCD President Walter Tribley sent a letter to state legislators voicing his opposition to the bill proposing the creation of a Gillette College Community College District.

Amazing that when the closet thing we'll get to a "Free Market" in education in Wyoming is within reach, the leeches come out to other words, I find it maddening that competition is "great" in the private sector, but when it comes to education/gov't sector, it's a non-starter? If Sheridan College is truly a pillar of education in Wyoming, they'll manage to tighten their belts/adapt and overcome, if you will. Sheridan College brought this upon themselves when they unilaterally cancelled programs wholesale at Gillette College with barely a consideration for the will of the citizens of Campbell County, let alone the students of Gillette College. I agree, it's time for a split, release us from the yoke of oppression and we'll sink, or swim...
