The minerals industry isn’t the only thing stagnating in Wyoming these days.

So, too, it seems are the movers and shakers interested in promoting ideas to carry the state and region through this decade and beyond.

Well said. If Wyoming and Gillette are going to survive it is going to have to take some foresight and courage from our elected officials. We have languished for too long under the delusion that coal is always going to save us. Time to move on.


Insanity is doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results. Unfortunately, the powers that be in Wyoming are too used to inaction and have stuck their heads in the sand hoping that Trump would save our state. Being saved did not happen, nor would it have happened if Trump were elected to four more years. The world is changing, and Wyoming has to change with it.
