The value of NJCAA athletics in community colleges is simple! “But for athletics,” what are you missing out on? In this case, you are missing out on enrollment strategies, college publicity, community outreach, diversity and challenging the status quo!

Earlier this week, when a Wyoming winter storm blew through the northeastern part of the state, the local school district went to a “virtual school day.”

As energy transitions occur across the globe, one has to question if policy makers are learning from the experiences in other states and nations. We would be wise to pay close attention. Change is coming and today’s energy sector will look different in the near future. Those two dynamics are…

More than 20 years ago, the Wyoming Legislature recognized a problem: the state needed more doctors. To achieve this, the Legislature formed a valuable partnership with the University of Washington School of Medicine to add the second “W” to the WWAMI (pronounced whammy) program, and bring w…

The powers that Google and Facebook have over economic and political power in society — especially over the news industry — has caught the attention of lawmakers in Washington, D.C. After a close election and many worries over the quality of public debate, many ask if social media have playe…

Recently I’ve been diving into home improvement projects. I like them on the border of loving them. They are fulfilling, because at the end of it all, you are left with a clean wall, newly colored cabinets or maybe even just a really frilly, upscaled dollar store soap dispenser.

Imagine you are 22 years old. It’s October, and you are flying in an aircraft in cloudy weather. A cool wind is blowing in your face, because the aircraft door is open. You are about to jump. You are an army paratrooper, 30 miles behind the North Korean line, north of Pyongyang, the North Ko…

This morning I woke up late. I’d planned on an earlier day, but sleep had other plans. As I got up and got ready for the rest of my day, my cat lounged comfortably under the covers. She made a snoozy sound and curled into herself for some more and much-needed even-later morning sleep. It was…

Since the FBI searched Mar-a-Lago, former President Donald Trump’s Florida home, big media have been churning out stories about how the raid on Trump’s turf has pushed some conservatives to abandon their support for law enforcement.

WASHINGTON — Just 1 in 4 Americans believe that President Joe Biden’s so-called Inflation Reduction Act will actually reduce inflation, while 71% say the law will either have no impact or make things worse. The majority is right to be skeptical. The nonpartisan Penn Wharton Budget Model foun…

Something wonderful happened to me recently. I spoke on the telephone to a human being at a credit card company. Well, not immediately. That would be too much to expect.

Superman, Wonder Woman and the Incredible Hulk all possess superpowers, but I enjoy supremacy even greater than x-ray vision, unlimited strength or the ability to fly. My capabilities come from grocery lists in my pocket and canned goods on aisle seven. It’s the power of food acquisition and…

Tonight the sunset was beyond spectacular. It sat low and sinking in the sky in every shade of orange imaginable, plus a dozen or so hues that haven’t been invented yet. Two loons floated serenely on the glassy waters of the lake, their silhouettes small and dark in the foreground amongst th…

Why are we all in such a rush? For the most part we are always rushing to the next meeting, the next meal and rushing around life in anticipation of the next big thing.

Whether you’re contemplating San Francisco voters’ recall of left-wing District Attorney Chesa Boudin or the plight of Democrats nationally as they face voters’ dismay at out-of-control inflation, immigration and crime, the question is liable to come to mind: What were they thinking?

I like my phone. I rely on my phone. I truly appreciate my phone (and you, too, Siri!) but beyond that, well, my phone is just a phone. She does for me what I ask her to do, when I ask her to do it and as long as that consistency in our relationship exists, I’m good. We’re good.

I think a lot about perspective. I’ve even touched on the topic from time to time. But today, I stumbled across a new take on it. (Stumbled being the operative word. Isn’t it funny — in a not-so-funny-way — how life is a series of stumbles sometimes?)

Is it Donald Trump’s Republican Party? You can make the case it is, as partisan Democrats do, from the victories of various candidates endorsed by the former president in Republican primaries. But it’s not an airtight case, and Trump’s batting average is inflated by the dozens of endorsement…

The Korean War is less and less “forgotten.” You don’t hear people calling it “the Forgotten War” nearly as much as we did years ago. For elevating awareness of the worst calamity ever to befall the Korean Peninsula, we can thank North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, who has done his best to al…

Demand for mental health and substance use treatment services was greatly exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to increase. Hospitals have been overwhelmed, making in-person care harder to access and disrupting the traditional community support networks of thousands of people s…

I recently received a fund-raising appeal, that says, “Dear Friend, The Liberal elites, the Fake News Media and the Marxist Democrats hate America — and they hate you.”

People talk about culture war politics as if it were a recent development — a novelty, an exception to a historic rule that American politics is mostly about economics (who gets how much) and only occasionally gets sidetracked into culture (what people should or shouldn’t be allowed to do).

American hospitals are fundamental to the well-being of many local communities and indeed, our entire nation. Unfortunately, they are facing the increasingly difficult task of balancing quality comprehensive care for all patients against the need to invest in up-to-date medical technology an…

History isn’t short of people to blame. You could say of the present world crisis that it was former president Barack Obama’s fault for not getting tougher with Russian president Vladimir Putin in Syria. You could blame former president Donald Trump for giving Putin a sense of entitlement an…

A desire for better outcomes is a defining characteristic of the American experience. We can humbly acknowledge our imperfections while striving for excellence across America’s social, industrial and environmental standing. That desire is especially apparent in advances to energy production …

What were the benefits and costs of the COVID-19 restrictions implemented over the last two years? It’s a good time to ask that question, especially now that the masks are coming off and the lockdowns are canceled.
